Those who bothered to watch MSNBC on Monday may have heard liberalista Mika Brzezinski peg Texas Senator Ted Cruz as man who doesn't love his country. In one breath, Brzezinski managed to express her opinion that the Senator's effort to force a balanced budget while defunding ObamaCare "...shows how much they hate him [Obama] and don’t love the country."
Ms. Brzezinski continued, explaining to co-host Joe Scarborough, "I think he loves his prospects to develop a database more than he loves the country."
Wedged between the words we discover the innermost confluence that fuels the illogical mindset of liberalism.
First, Ms. Brzezinski thinks the core issue is a personal dislike for Barack Obama when, in reality, the core issue is not Obama but, rather, his idiotic socialist agenda. That agenda is indefensible forcing liberals to make the debate personal. That is often expressed as racism. Translated into the vernacular, it can be summed up as follows: "Conservatives want to balance the budget because they're racists."
Does that make sense? Of course not. If liberals were logical they wouldn't be liberals.
Second, Ms. Brzezinski uses the words "hate" and "love" in one sentence. To hate Obama is to hate the country and to love Obama is to love the country and to love the country is to love Obama and to hate the country is to hate Obama.
Where have we heard that before? (Hint.)
Third, critical mass is upon us. The rising tide of liberalism will soon be a tsunami that will bury our republic beneath of destructive flood of insane socialism from which it will never emerge. When that imminent point in time comes, who will be the true patriots? Those who support the socialist government? Or the few survivors who oppose it? As the nation succumbs to the progressive plague and its liberal blight, at what point do we stop loving our country?
Framed in that perspective I would suggest that Brzezinski may, in a sense, be correct: "Ted Cruz and his group" love the country, but they don't love her country.
Let me end on a positive note by saying this: The nice thing about MSNBC is that nobody watches it.
It's like singing sour in the shower. Nobody hears but you and you could care less.
"Nobody" may be a little overreaching. There are a few liberals who tune in, enough to keep the floundering cable network afloat. According to the October 4 ratings, the network has about one-half person watching for every whole person tuned in to Fox News.
Below is a transcript of the conversation:
STEVE RATTNER: The Republicans are in the famous boxed canyon. There’s no question about that.
JOE SCARBOROUGH, CO-HOST: That the Wall Street Journal said they put themselves in.
RATTNER: They did.
MIKA BRZEZINSKI, CO-HOST: Then why did they double down on this?
RICHARD HAASS, COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS: With one exception: which is President Obama at the end of the day is responsible for the country and the economy. So he could quote unquote win, but it would be a Pyrrhic victory. So it’s a game of chicken that really neither side wants to go off the edge here.
BRZEZINSKI: That shows how much they hate him and don’t love the country, and that’s what’s scary about this.
BRZEZINSKI: If they actually go through with this.
SCARBOROUGH: They love, are you saying they don’t love the country?
BRZEZINSKI: Uh, are you saying they do?
SCARBOROUGH: Yes, of course I’m saying they do.
BRZEZINSKI: Ted Cruz and his group loves the country?
SCARBOROUGH: Yes they love the country. I have never once suggested that even…
BRZEZINSKI: We disagree.
SCARBOROUGH: …the craziest left-wing lunatic didn’t love their country.
BRZEZINSKI: I think he loves his prospects to develop a database more than he loves the country.
SCARBOROUGH: I think Ted Cruz believes that ObamaCare is dangerous. I think he believes it’s devastating. I think he believes like I believe…
BRZEZINSKI: He’s allowed to believe that.
SCARBOROUGH: Right. And I think that he is willing to take extreme measures to stop it from happening.
BRZEZINSKI: But that’s bad for the country.
SCARBOROUGH: Hold on one second. But you suggested that some people might not love this country.
BRZEZINSKI: I am suggesting that.
SCARBOROUGH: People love this country, but they believe we get to the best outcome in completely different ways.
BRZEZINSKI: You know what? Nobody has ever done this before.
