Anniversary of Lies
By Paul Pekarek, Major, USAF Ret.
Thursday, September 9, 2010One year ago, on 9/9/09, we heard a prominent individual finally speak plainly, with a national audience able to witness it live. Representative Joe Wilson R, SC proudly and disgustedly uttered “You Lie!” when he could take no more of patent falsehoods being spewed as policy and agenda.
Then, like Joe The Plumber a year before, Joe the People’s Representative was roundly castigated for simply asserting the truth. Democrats, and other liberals too, roundly howled about how decorum was so essential in the supposedly hallowed halls of the U.S. Congress. It was a twilight zone week, as if Democrats and other liberals had never interrupted any conservative’s speech.
And then the wimpy, weak-kneed Republican leadership joined in. The Republican response was typical RINO behavior, inexplicably afraid of getting any bad press from the USA’s overtly partisan liberal media. It was a piling-on, a session akin to loosing all the jackals of hell. And Joe Wilson found he had to apologize.
It was the same playbook used by Stalin and Mao and Ho Chi Minh: turn up the torture or other pressures to have the accused admit and confess, to give legitimacy to the accusations – truth be damned. But regardless whether it’s been right or wrong, it’s true that liberals have had a way of hypocritically forcing conservatives into apologizing for behavior that liberals themselves are guilty of in spades, though media hype would never let anybody remember it. Indeed, liberals have sometimes even forced their opposition to apologize for the nerve of simply daring to be politically conservative. Then, as the concluding moral of “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence” reveals: “When the lie becomes the truth, print the lie.”
But Joe Wilson’s “You Lie!” has resonated. Ordinary Americans agree. Tea Parties surged. Conservatives have organized beyond the beginnings in the Free Republic crowd of a decade ago. Even ordinary polling shows Americans are fed up with lies upon lies. Why? How? It’s actually very simple, though liberals would never fully understand it; ‘relative morality’ doesn’t see a big deal with telling lies, when the lies advance the liberal agenda.
Yet, in objective reality, where most Americans live, lies succeed only so long before they mutually contradict enough that any person with half a memory will finally see through the façade. Then, the liberals’ Potempkin Village is finally seen not as the pretense of a real village, but as the cheating, deceptive, patronizing, and embezzling false fronts that the supposed real constructions always were.
