Hypocrisy Zones * Open Thread *

by

 

It’s no secret to any of us that hypocrisy is rampant in our society. We may at times be tempted ourselves. It’s difficult not to be find some excuse when someone we like says or does something we would eviscerate in someone we  dislike. That’s only human and can be excused if we don’t follow through on the temptation.

Hypocrisy needs to be avoided or we lose our own sense of right and wrong. We know that if something is wrong, it’s wrong for everyone not just for people of whom we do not approve. We know and yet the temptation is always there.

I believe that many in the media have become true hypocrites. They have lied so long, by omission or commission in order to benefit their belief and agenda that I believe that many simply cannot see the error of their own ways. Many believe their own hypocrisy. Once that happens in my opinion it is almost impossible to regain any integrity. Even hard to regain credibility.

The true liberal/progressive zealot refuses to see the mote in their own eye but finds it often in the eye of any who do not see things their way. They, the true believers are the true hypocrites.

If there are none so blind as those who will not see then most of the media, the ones that report to the people of this country, are willfully blind and willfully dishonest. No wonder they don’t want religion in or around them, it would pick at the scab of their hypocrisy.

Right behind the hypocrites of media are the hypocrites of Hollywood. In the first place they are no smarter or better informed than Joe Six Pack yet think to tell the rest of us what we should do or what to think. Being able to play pretend, some of them exceedingly well, on the stage or screen does not make them an authority on anything other than acting. And many of the richest and best known aren’t even very good at that.

I find the bigger and louder the mouth on these hypocrites ruins my enjoyment of their movies or television shows. I simply find myself, not consciously but gradually avoiding them. Not at all difficult with two of the loudest mouths Clooney and DiCaprio since I don’t like them in the first place.

The hypocrisy and dishonesty of the current occupier of the Oval Office is dazzling. With the help of his activists in the media this mediocrity has managed to flimflam a good number of citizens. All too many are in love with the melanin in his skin and not his much touted by seldom seen intellect.TmKI1Hh.jpg

Now with his absence, during so many terrible events to vacation and play golf has he finally crossed a line not even the media can ignore? Doubtful. Sycophants seldom recover their ability to see the truth or to end their hypocrisy.

Obama Ripped Bush For Katrina, Noticeably Absent During Louisiana Flooding

Obama berated President Bush for what he thought was a slow response to Hurricane Katrina.

So where is Obama for “the worst flooding since Katrina?” Oh, he’s in Martha’s Vineyard playing his 9th round of golf in 13 days.

Once again we see a POTUS that’s good at running his mouth but not much use at running anything else. Don’t worry Louisiana, Obama intends to visit you Tuesday, after his vacation is over and after attending a fundraiser for Hillary. Priorities people, priorities.

Obama’s hypocrisy on this issue aside, where is the media? Chris Cillizza wrote a pathetic attempt at a reason why Obama didn’t bother to interrupt his vacation for the floods in Louisiana:

Here’s why President Obama isn’t stopping his vacation to visit the Louisiana flooding

According to Cover-Obama’s Ass-Cillizza the reason Obama hasn’t bothered to visit Louisiana is:

“Obama’s unique and long-lasting commitment to not playing by a core rule of modern politics: making at least some decisions based on “how it looks” and/or “how it will play.”

Cillizza also points out that in this digital age no President is ever totally on vacation. Did the hypocrites on the left mention that when Bush at least flew over the flood zones to get a look at the devastation? Did they mention that perhaps it might be best if the President stayed away lest his presence cause confusion and congestion where it was not useful? You know they didn’t.

Just for the record a lot of people are wondering what the president, who seems to comment on everything has to say about the criminals burning Milwaukee neighborhoods. The racial fires that had their flames fanned by the mouthy POS in the White House.

You would at least expect him to commiserate with California, a true, blue Democrat state about the terrible wildfires. Maybe he doesn’t feel the need to say anything. After all, California is a reliable “blue” state so there’s no need to kowtow to them. Reliable states, blue or red don’t mind being taken for granted by either party do they?

Maybe someday soon the citizens of this country will tire of the hypocrites in movies, in media, and in elected office lying to them. Flim-flaming them.  I won’t hold my breath.

    Good post. Hypocrisy tends to make the rest of us really cynical and bitter. We stop trusting anybody, especially our leaders and who can blame us? They’ve proven themselves to be unworthy of our trust.

    My parents taught me when I was young that trust is a fragile thing. Every time I forgot that or abused it I learned how right they were. I believe that media is at the point of no return for a generation. Longer if they don’t learn the lesson I learned when I was 12 years old.

    American journalism is collapsing before our eyes

    By torching its remaining credibility in service of Clinton, the mainstream media’s reputations will likely never recover, nor will the standards. No future producer, editor, reporter or anchor can be expected to meet a test of fairness when that standard has been trashed in such willful and blatant fashion.

    Liberal bias in journalism is often baked into the cake. The traditional ethos of comforting the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable leads to demands that government solve every problem. Favoring big government, then, becomes routine among most journalists, especially young ones.

      I don’t know enough about the law to argue with Dean – however I do “know” enough about Hillary to believe that she’s perjured herself many times.

      Are the Republican’s trying to “smear” Hillary? Probably. But she’s certainly given them plenty of ammunition.

      And “smearing the opposition” is what politicians do – on both sides of the aisle.

    Have often wondered why Don the Con is really running and his ‘vaunted’ work acumen / leadership skills given his campaign operations.

    this was a really stupid move. California has a lot of military bases

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Okay they were fined, and Kamala did her pretend to care media show – how does that help those that were evicted?

      The company says ““It is unfortunate that this occurred, but we have taken specific actions to address it.” Unfortunate? It was a damn sight more than unfortunate for those families.

      What weasel words and why would anyone believe them? They are just sorry they got caught.

  10. piper Says:

    Given how Trump and his campaign ‘workers have and are managing his campaign. Question – is this really a Farce or the last hurrah of a demented rich person who suffers from the same narcissistic traits as Obama needing constant adulation and attention. Also why the need to fly home every night creating a ‘yuuuuuuuuge’ carbon footprint.

    After switching party affiliation to Independent several years I looked at the Republicans for balance and wisdom – silly me – they’re just as corrupt and out of touch as the Democrats.

    Both parties should be renamed loons but that would be an insult to loons which are the Minnesota state birds, a place fond in my heart and checkbook.

    random thought
    does iran run the dem party now? between valjar and huma I keep wondering how did they get so much access to power in this country?
    The saudies keep sending money, but the iranians have the access.

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I’ve thought that Valerie Jarrett runs the Obama White House for a long time. With Huma beside Hillary that will just continue the takeover of America by Iran. Sounds crazy doesn’t it? Or does it? I swear I don’t know anymore.

    Another great post, Marge. It is astonishing how rampant hypocrisy is these days and how little people seem to care even when their idols/candidates are caught in blatantly hypocritical statements or actions. Boggles the mind, doesn’t it?
