Last month, I nailed Bill and Hillary Clinton for their gross hypocrisy on the death tax.

But that’s just one example. Today, we’re going to experience a festival of statist hypocrisy. We have six different nauseating examples of political elitists wanting to subject ordinary people to bad policy while self-exempting themselves from similar burdens.

Our first three examples are from the world of taxation.

Here are some excerpts from a Washington Timesreport about a billionaire donor who is bankrolling candidates who support higher taxes, even though he structured his hedge fund in low-tax jurisdictions specifically to minimize the fiscal burdens of his clients.

Tom Steyer, the billionaire environmental activist who is spending $100 million to help elect Democrats this fall, is rallying support for energy taxes that could impact everyday Americans. But when he ran his own hedge fund, Mr. Steyer sought to help wealthy clients legally avoid paying…

We’ve all felt that sense of relief when we finally experience positive concrete changes in our circumstances following what seemed to be an endless period of things going downhill. Two recent social movements which spoke out for freedom, Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party, should both be breathing a sigh of relief, as this month capped of two years or so of actions which benefit both simultaneously yet, at first blush, appear disparate and even contradictory.

Occupy and the Tea Party ought to say a silent “thank you” to the state and federal courts, be it for the unanimous Supreme Court decision involving police searches, the past few years of judicial and state recognition of gay marriage, or the thirteen consecutive Supreme Court slap downs of President Obama’s overreach culminating in the unanimous rejection of his illegal appointments as well as the recent Hobby Lobby decision. Hailed by some while derided by…

hmmmm…..Hunter considered the notion of suggesting the abortion of adult conservatives, but figured this would be a bit too controversial. However, he would accept any volunteers to the cause as he prepares the fire.

Fewer problems have dominated public conversation than Climate Change and the ongoing ‘War on Terror.’ This is particularly true for Liberals. Perhaps this is because Climate Change and the ‘War on Terror’ are inextricably linked. With Liberal enlightenment comes the recognition that unless we rid ourselves of planet destroying sources of energy we will destroy our wonderful Earth and will never financially separate ourselves from an ongoing war against well-meaning people’s whose peaceful religion we’ve been force to fight thanks to Conservatives and their empire building…

The atrocities committed by USCSB shooter Eliot Rodger - atrocities which include numerous whiny video rants and a vomit inducing 137 page manifest0 -  brilliantly illuminate and may, hopefully, put an end to one of our culture’s most pernicious problems.  We live in an age of entitlement.

This statement should come as a surprise to no one.

All around us folks feel they are owed everything from birth control to a ‘living wage’; from ‘respect for my opinion’ to, as Rodger incessantly whined about in his rants, affection and ‘accolades’ (his word). Pervading these demands is the notion that merely because they live and breathe they’re exempt from earning what they wish for or need.

Perhaps, in the sheer vomit inducing audacity and clarity that are the Rodger tapes (and manifesto), folks will be better able to draw philosophical parallels on day to day life. Perhaps more will come to recognize entitlement based demands for what they are, whenever or wherever they hear them.

This column is primarily about social issues, but will occasionally delve into the concepts which drive those issues. Today is one of those times. Today we’ll talk briefly about mercy and justice, concepts that are driving forces behind the social issues which move us to action and, occasionally, to tears.

Recently at the city mission the Minister talked about mercy and justice. He drew a metaphor of two coins brought together. The minister discussed how mercy and justice yearn to meet. Both concepts at once appear similar, however it’s clear that they are very different moral concepts. They come from very different basic premises. Each stirs strong – and very different – emotions.

In the haunting lyrics of his song Get Me Right Dashboard Confessional’s Chris Carrabba sings of sin and how

it remains inside of me

It battles and devours me

It cuddles up beside me

And whispers it…

It cannot possibly have escaped attention, but nothing shuts down an argument or discussion these days quicker than accusations of ‘racism’. Perhaps it’s just me, but it seems that everything today is ‘racist’ or ‘racially charged’. This author is bewildered, exhausted (and, frankly, bored) from all the racism talk.

The recent racially tinged ‘scandals’ regarding Rancher Cliven Bundy and LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling – along with a conversation with an acquaintance on a slightly unrelated subject – got this author thinking: when do divergent opinions cross over the line, and where is that line drawn? How do we, as a culture, deal with unpopular positions? Who decides which opinions are beyond the pale? Before we get to this author’s recent conversation that connects the threads of this discussion, let’s look at the ‘scandals” of Rancher Bundy and Clippers owner Sterling. On the surface the two situations appear similar. Both…

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.”

The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.

The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform.

“I’ve said before and I’ll say it again, that we as a faculty and staff and student body, as an administration, if we 10 years from now are as white as we are today, we will have failed as a university,” said Bruce Shepard, president of WWU, in a…

TownHall.Com: Top 15 Examples Of “White Privilege”

We all know now that white men have it easy. The liberals call it “white privilege” and it means that white men are not permitted to discuss race, gender or sexuality.

Doing so comes with terrible repercussions. Unless, of course, you’re a liberal. Liberals are given carte blanche to do or say anything – as long as it furthers the cause of “progressivism,” shames white males, heterosexuals or (especially) conservative blacks.

Our friends at townhall.com have compiled a list of the top 15 examples of “liberal privilege:”

1) You can commit a crime and your local newspaper usually won’t mention what party you’re in if you’re a Democrat.

2) You can be a white liberal who viciously mocks black men like Clarence Thomas, Allen West, and Ben Carson without being called a racist.

3) You can be a Communist or a radical Islamist, you can hate America or even engage…

This ongoing series is not intended as ‘gotcha’ style one-upmanship on the issue of racism, but rather a counterargument to the view that racism is part and parcel of the Conservative/Republican movement as well as an indictment of the agenda of Liberals.  It will integrate the statements and the policies of liberals and will demonstrate that both  the policies and the statements are of a whole cloth – the very same race-obsessed cloth which stained the early Democratic Party. The series is a demonstration that Liberals and Democrats have not only not left their racist views behind them, but rather have developed a different strategy to achieve the very same ends of those early racists within their ranks.

The following are quotes attributed to prominent liberal and Democratic leaders and activists regarding blacks and Jews. All of these (with the exception of the Truman quote) date after the alleged switch in party affiliation based on racist leanings that is often alleged by Liberals today.

Excluded from this page are the myriad of anti-white statements from white, black, and Hispanic leaders and activists. These views are widely known. Inclusion of them here would be both redundant and counterproductive, as it is the alleged bias against blacks, Jews, and Hispanics of Conservatives and Republicans which draws the ire of so many liberals.

HAPPY LABOR DAY! HERE'S 5 EXAMPLES OF LEFT-WING RACISM

Racism, like evil itself, will probably never go away until God finishes His work with this planet. It’s a form of hateful stupidity that will characterize certain elements of humanity for a very long time.

In spite of their rhetoric to the contrary, there are racist liberals. They won’t admit this, of course. They will also cover up the overt racism of fellow liberals because they’re all on the same team and they don’t want to give us conservatives any more ammunition to throw at their movement.

Here’s 5 examples of left-wing racism.

1. Gay rights mafia members calling African Americans the n-word after the passage of Proposition 8.

Back in 2008, then Presidential candidate (and African American) Barack Obama inspired many African Americans to come out to the polls to vote for him. In the wake of this historic election of the first President of his race, one might…
