  •  this post is central to my disillusionment (0+ / 0-)

    I find the double standard of so many fellow dems just insane. A central theme here is essentially that Hunter is okay with civil liberties violations so long as dems are the ones doing it. I find that vile and it literally maes me a a bit sick to my stomach. You have lost your way. Shame.

      ...read the same post?

      I missed the part, overt or implied, where the idea of Democrats violating civil liberties is okay...

      •  its the implied message (0+ / 0-)

        The whole idea that conservatives have  false outrage here, so there is nothing to be outragee about.  If this were a Bush wh targeting progressive groups, this same clown would be screaming bloody murder. Hypocracy is an understatement.

          Your concern is noted.

          +++ The law is a weapon used to bludgeon us peasants into submission. It is not to be applied to the monied elite.

          You wrote:

          ...which implies you believe President Obama's "wh" was "targeting" conservative groups.

          Prove it.

          Or, are you in support of the Noonan dynamic; criticism = implicit order?

          So, yes...the Republiscums have false outrage here, because there is ZERO evidence that President Obama's "wh" did any "targeting" of conservative groups.

            If the known set of circumstances were present in the reverse scenario,  the outrage here including yours I am sure would be at a fever pitch.  You have a transparent bias. We dont know what happened is the logically apparent truth of the matter and you lie to yourself to embraace a conclusion that ignores this. Dont sacrifice your integrity to embrace a lie to yourself because it is what you want to believe.

          I hardly heard anything about it at the time. Why didn't righty get upset?
