This is a letter-to-the-editor sent by my uncle, Gilbert Aragon, to the local newspaper. Whether the local paper will ever bother to look at it is anybody's guess but this is a comment on a column by Victor David Hanson which appeared in the Sunday (December 21) paper. Hanson was bringing up Democrat hypocrisy in drone killings vs. the CIA interrogation report thrown in the face of Americans by Dianne Feinstein:
I agree with columnist Victor David Hanson in calling Democrats hypocrites for going microphone ballistic over the report on the CIA interrogation process used after we were attacked on 9/11 all the while sitting silently as Barack Obama carves over 2,000 notches on his Nobel Peace Prize plaque with his drone killings.
But the main error Mr. Hanson makes is in thinking that hypocrisy even phases a Democrat. On the contrary, Democrats (and Liberals, Progressives, Socialists, and pseudo-Independents) are at one with their hypocrisy which they wear like a second skin. Democrats go to church, beat their breasts, shout Amen!, and just as quickly turn around and support abortions and fetal experiments; they salute the flag at memorial events yet are the first to call for cuts in the military; they demand freedom of speech but do their damndest to silence conservatives and Tea Party members; they rail against Corporate Welfare but are the first to sign up for family Welfare or grab at corporate grants and subsidies for film, art, or any of the environmental causes they support; they complain about losing American jobs but they see no problem in driving around town in their imported cars.
I've given up trying to talk to Democrats. My take is that hypocrisy is in their very genetic make-up and it doesn't bother them one bit. You can't shame the shameless and you can't educate a turnip. To think any less is to expect water to flow uphill and dogs to speak French.
