Calling The Pope A Nazi Is Heroic? Calling Obama A Failed President Is Racist?
When Susan Sarandon called Pope Benedict XVI a Nazi what exactly was she hoping to gain by the remark? Does she really believe the Pope is a Nazi or was she just having a bad a day and needed to vent? Does Susan even know what a Nazi is? That is a fair question to ask of a liberal, any liberal, such as Susan who, on the one hand supports abortion on demand, but on the other hand, opposes the death penalty as much as the Pope she called a Nazi. (She starred in “Dead Man Walking”, in 1995, a movie with anti-death penalty themes.) And liberals have a strong tendency to simply throw around words to see where they stick. The problem here, of course, is that there is nowhere for “Nazi” to stick when referring to Pope Benedict XVI.
Perhaps she was referring to the Pope’s earlier, albeit brief, ties to Nazism when, in his youth, and when he was known by his German name Joseph Ratzinger, he was forced to join Hitler’s Youth, as were all young Germans at the time. But the war ended, Nazism failed, and Joseph, who never embraced Nazism to begin with, grew up to be a strong Catholic and eventually Pope, after the death of Pope John Paul II.
One is hard pressed to find a liberal who has the courage to openly show respect for such a man as Pope Benedict XVI. Why did Susan Sarandon really call the Pope a Nazi? More than likely it is because she is a deeply convicted liberal and he is a deeply religious conservative who opposes abortion, homosexuality and gay marriage, socialism and the socialist agenda which seeks to uproot and overthrow religion and religious institutions. When do you ever see, or hear of, a conservative calling a liberal a Nazi? (Maybe Rush Limbaugh when he refers to feminists as femi-Nazis. And it might do well to examine the term more in-depth and find out how much truth there is to it.)
Liberals, hypocrites as they are, have no problem with throwing around such words as ‘Nazi” when it comes to conservatives, and in particular religious conservatives; and left wing extremist pro abortion groups like NOW, have no problem calling pro-life activists terrorists. But when conservatives use words like “I hope Obama fails”, Obama is a failure, Obama, the first black U.S. President, is the worst President in U.S. history – we are labeled racists, despite the fact that when we use words, we can usually back them up; and despite the fact that liberals called George W. Bush, his father and former President George H. W. Bush, and Ronald Reagan much, much worse during their Presidencies.
And yet, Obama has failed to produce the millions of jobs he promised he would. Obama has failed to turn our economy around as he promised he would. Obama has failed to cut taxes on the middle class as he promised he would. And Obama has failed to end partisanship in politics and in America with regards to race as he promised he would. Race relations in America are worse now than they were before Obama took office – and that is the direct fault of black liberals in congress and all over America. The racism we are seeing now in America is coming most directly from liberal blacks, not conservative whites.
Barack Obama is a failed President. (And this is mostly a good thing for America and all Americans.)
Because the way in which Obama wanted jobs to be created in America would have cost American taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars and would only have created government, public sector jobs and expanded government itself. In other words, the only jobs Obama is concerned with creating are those that grow the size and scope of government, but which do not expand the size and scope of the economy. The more we grow government, the more government jobs we create, the more it costs all taxpayers. However, creating jobs in the private sector not only costs taxpayers nothing, it not only aides the economy and economic growth, it also generates new tax revenue. To create a government, public sector job, you must pay someone with the money collected through taxes. To create a private sector job, a business owner must pay someone out of their own pocket.
Certainly we, as conservatives, hope Obama fails to achieve his ultimate goal of bigger government, higher taxes and less freedom and liberty for all Americans. Certainly we, as conservatives, know how much better off America, Americanism and all freedom loving Americans will be should Obama fail to achieve these goals. Certainly we, as conservatives, know that by hoping Obama fails in his goals, we are not applying racism behind our motives. If Obama were white, and he, as a white President, had the same agenda, we would hope for his failure just as aggressively.
So no, Pope Benedict XVI is no more a Nazi than conservatives are racists. And liberals, like Susan Sarandon and Barack Obama, are no more saints, heroes or anybody to look up to and admire than was Hitler.
