As I begin this, I would like to point out that Jerry Falwell never held a political office, he never started a war, he never executed thousands of people. Jerry Falwell has helped thousands of people get through tough times, provided a place for people to get an education, and gave spiritual guidance to countless people.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saddened by Jerry Falwell’s death. He was a man, and like all men, had to someday die. I’m not here to tell you one way or the other about Jerry Falwell because quite frankly, I never met the man. I can’t tell you what kind of person he was.
I do know he never tied a bomb around his stomach killing innocent women and children. He never starved people to death like many communist dictators, and unlike Che Guevara, did not start violent revolutions that led to the worsening of people’s life.
What I am going to do is give you a taste of what you can expect from Liberal bloggers. The following is a fictitious interview, though many of the attributed comments are taken from their respective sites. I’d like to encourage you all to click the links and see what they actually said. First I want to check in with Wonkette.
LC: “Wonkette, Jerry Falwell has passed away, any thoughts?”
LC: “Well, as a person of compassion and understanding, I’d hope you’d be sympathetic about the things you’re saying. Isn’t that what liberals are supposed to stand for?”
LC: “Um, Wonkette…”
LC: “Um, three posts celebrating Falwell’s death?”
WONK: “Three? No, five so far, but wait til tomorrow, let’s see if I am happier because his Jabba-like corpse is still warm yet comically unresponsive. I’m certain to become happier as his body gets colder.”
LC: “It’s simply amazing to me that people listen to people like you.”
Let’s walk around the blogosphere a bit…
Oh look, here’s Shallon Connor, who is “glad” that Jerry Falwell is dead. — I wonder how these guys can say they are “against hatred” and at the same time be so proud of the hate they harbor.
Let’s swing over to another blog… Bilerico celebrates Falwell’s death with a joke
Andymatic proudly displays hatred while “condemning hatred” and “condemns Falwell to burn“.
Are there any normal people out there?
LC: “Bryan’s Bunch, what kind of reaction are you seeing out there?”
BB: “I see the greatest intolerance comes from people who don’t like the message of Jerry Falwell. I did a search of blogs and so-far, 99 out of 100 are praising his death.”
Thank you BB for showing some type of sanity out there. Just think, I excluded many posts that were much more extreme simply because they were on livejournal or myspace. Well, except for this guy who asked “where does the conga line over his grave start?”
I know some of you are going to tell me how not all Democrats are like that and yes I know that. I would like to point out, that while you keep telling me how there are normal Democrats out there, you stay silent and let kooks like this take control of your party. Maybe you laugh along with them, or maybe you just keep quiet. Whatever the case may be, the less you say to them, the easier you make it for them to get crazier and crazier. As Edmund Burke once stated, “The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” Don’t tell me this isn’t a representation of the Democratic party when you won’t even stand up to these insane idiots.
Maybe it’s too late for you to get control of your party.
