The hysteria over Joe Wilson’s outburst

Ever since Obama’s latest MAJOR SPEECH on health care “reform,” the AP-Obama and Yahoo news have been going out of their way to attack Rep. Joe Wilson of South Carolina. Wilson briefly yelled out his opposition during Obama’s televised speech. Specifically, right after Obama condemned (as spouting falsehoods) anyone who predicted that his socialized healthcare would give medicine to illegal aliens, Wilson shouted out in response, “You lie!”


So now, every time I log onto the internet (Yahoo is my homepage…for now), I see another idiotic AP story declaring Joe Wilson horribly wrong about Obama (in reality, he was right), and predicting that Wilson will surely pay for his grossly foolish outburst. Journalists keep going out of their way to mention how much money Joe Wilson’s upcoming congressional opponent has raised from Americans…supposedly outraged at his intense disrespect.

I don’t recall the AP maintaining this outrage when that Iraqi jackass threw shoes at President Bush (who, by the way, handled that obnoxious situation in a remarkably suave and charming manner). Rather, many of the reporters seemed outright happy about the shoe-thrower.

So after hearing about how the Daily Kos and Leftists from around the country have started pouring money into the campaign of Joe Wilson’s opponent, I went ahead and donated a small amount to the Wilson campaign. I don’t have money simply to throw around, but this type of bold behavior should be rewarded in America — not punished. One conservative commenter on the article at Hot Air stated the following:

Personally I welcome the day when our legislators act like British parliamentarians with jeers and catcalls for the leaders of each side. It would be better than all of the backscratching and fake “My friend from the other side of the aisle” BS we have now.

We don’t have to turn into Taiwan, with fistfights and chairs being thrown all the time, but we would all be better off if our legislators would call out blatant lies by the other side on C-SPAN for all to see.

I agree completely. All this “My friend” garbage makes me sick. And just think about how entertaining C-SPAN might become if all the Republicans became like Joe Wilson!

Some of you may wonder, But Drew! Just imagine the chaos if the Democrats acted in such an UNCIVIL manner when YOUR president was in charge. We cannot tolerate this INTENSE DISRESPECT! But I don’t have to imagine anything, because Republicans routinely tolerate this type of behavior (and far worse) from Democrats all the time. I just wish more Republicans would respond the way Joe Wilson did — but perhaps without feeling the need to apologize afterward for their “incivility.” Republicans need to stop referring to communists as “My friend and colleague” and start referring to them as “My hated enemy.” Ann Coulter once summed up the situation quite succinctly:

Republicans are always accused of being sharks; I wish they’d rise to the level of minnows.

And overall, I think this Leftist tactic of going after outspoken conservative congressmen is a losing strategy. The socialists have already tried this tactic with Michele Bachmann for the past year, and their attacks have merely enhanced her celebrity. To me, this situation kinda reminds me of the Iraq War. Just like Iraq attracted all the terrorists from around the world into one small, foreign location — where we could slaughter them — now some of the bravest Republican congressmen are attracting Leftist dollars from around the country into their own districts, where those dollars will ultimately be wasted.

Of course, some of you may be wondering, But Drew, why on earth would you keep using a lame website like as your browser home page? That’s a very good question! Even the Yahoo search engine is weak compared to google. And all its news articles on the front page are straight from the Democrat handbook. Even Yahoo’s free email accounts are inferior to gmail. Some conservative ought to organize a boycott or something.

    Isn’t Joe Wilson an hoot and a half? It truly is an amusing thing to behold. The extreme right wing is having a collective, massive nervous breakdown. They just can’t come to terms with the nasty little fact that a black guy is the most powerful human being on the planet. It really is kind of funny – to a point.

    Here’s what’s happening, boys and girls: The so-called “party of Lincoln” has been forever exposed as ideologically bankrupt and they are in the process of implementing their “scorched earth policy”. In other words, if they have to go down (and down they are going) they’re absolutely determined to bring the rest of the country down with them. That is what is happening – COUNT ON IT.

    If you thought that the loony right wing had lost all the marbles they could possibly lose, oh brother! As Al Jolson used to say, “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet”. Here’s the part that’s not so funny: There is violence down the road. Count on it.

    Sound paranoid? Stay tuned.

    Did you even look at the link I showed?

    Obama either *was* lying, or he was severely misinformed. I think it’d be nice if more people called politicians out on their deceptions.

    After reading this I wonder if we share the same DNA. If I didn’t know that conservatism was sign of intelligence and rational thought, I might actually believe that we do. Great blog! On point in every aspect.

    Oh and quick note.

    Maybe you should change your homepage from Yahoo! to Fox Nation. My internet experience has been much better since doing so.

    Yeah, I’ve been thinking about changing it, but the obstacles are: 1) I use some Yahoo email addresses, and 2) It’s kinda useful to keep up-to-date on the latest liberal propaganda, even though it makes me mad.
