David Ulin, the L.A. Times book critic, couldn’t just write an article down the middle on the contested election of 1800 between Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, which in and of itself can be very compelling material. No, he had to use the favorite trick of Liberal opinion authors: Bury a few passing shots deep in the copy of the opinion piece and camouflage it.
Here’s one example as he writes on Page D6 of the Calendar section on Wednesday, October 17, 2012: “Although the legislation did not pass, it’s impossible to read about it without recalling Pennsylvania state House Republican leader Mike Turzai, who declared last August, “Voter ID, which is going to allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done” – an echoed voter suppression effort that also failed when Judge Robert Simpson blocked Pennsylvania’s voter ID law this month.”
Yep, those noble freedom and dissent loving Liberals looking out for the rest of us. Sure David, we all recall Mike Turzai’s comments from last August and of course we couldn’t read about Jefferson and Adams without recalling what happened in Pennsylvania. First, recognize what liberals do and how they do it. Number one, they see themselves as the warriors of the oppressed, but does their history reflect that? Was it the Democrats or the Republicans who formed the KKK? Was it a Liberal or a Republican who freed the slaves? Was it a Republican or a Democrat who sent the Japanese American citizens into internment camps during WWII?
That’s THEIR history. Own it.
Now of course it’s “Voter Suppression”… with an ID card nonetheless, something every citizen in the United States has access to. He makes it sound as if just Republicans can print these things up. Again, it points out the lack of a consistent liberal philosophy and why it’s so easy to point out flaws in liberal thought: If Turzai and the Republicans are attempting to suppress the vote with the deadly ID card atomic weapon, is not Canada doing the same?
All of Canada that requires ID cards to vote. Does Ulin point that out and write this?: “It’s a shame that conservatives in Canada have suppressed the vote in that great country for eons with Voter ID cards…” No. He hopes you’re not aware of it. And when you are, he’s faced with a tremendous inconsistency: Either ALL nations that require voter ID’s to vote are suppressors or NONE of them are. Which is it, Mr. Ulin? They’ll never answer. You can’t cherry pick, but, that’s liberal. He got it in. It felt good. POW! KABOOM! Take that, righties! UGHHH!!!
For me, personally, I could argue that the overabundance of liberal slanted articles in a major metropolitan circulation so blatantly favoring the left does more to suppress the vote (on the right) than a harmless ID card. These people live in a different universe and in that universe there are no consistent principles. It’s just opinion and anything goes. Be aware of what they do.
