EMMANUEL APOLIGIZES TO DISABLED FOR CALLING LIBERALS 'RETARDS'

Peter Suderman, Reason - When liberal Democrats threatened to run ads against moderates party members who were holding out on health care reform, nine-fingered senior Obama adviser and noted sender-of-threatening-dead-fishes, Rahm Emmanuel, reportedly responded with two words: "Fucking" and "retarded.". . .

There's a limit to what even a Hill head-knocker like Emmanuel is allowed to be quoted saying in the Wall Street Journal. So he apologized. . . just not to the Democrats; instead, he apologized to the CEO of the Special Olympics, who's running a campaign against the use of the word "retard." Message received, sir: Calling liberals "retarded" is unfair to the disabled.

Its always fascinating to find out what they really think.

During the election campaign season, these Democrats are always telling us how wonderfully liberal and leftist they are to get our votes. (play tape of Obama during the primaries).

Then, when they get to Washington, it takes an open mic to hear what they really think.

People really need to wake up and realize that the Democrats HATE the left. They lie to get our votes. But when they really say what they mean, they hate us, they hate our ideas, they hate our values.

Why on earth does the left keep voting for people who hate them and oppose them?

Because the rightwing is far worse! The right runs on a whole premise of selfishness, a history of racism and exclusion.
