Trash Talk

The trash talking in American politics is so over the top that it’s not worth listening to.  The goal is not truth but how outrageous one can be.  Trouble is so many people take it seriously and so get riled by it — a big reason why there is so much conflict in America today, why so many are so angry.  And of course the media is fundamentally at fault here — yellow journalism run amuk.  Back in the 80’s and 90’s in New York City, it was the New York Post that had the outrageous headline and stories, that either bordered on the preposterous and went way over the edge.  Now it’s every newspaper and “news” media.

In my opinion, one should always keep in mind, when reading or hearing a political opinion, what that individual’s agenda is.  Their statements tell you more about the authors than who or what they are addressing.  Witness the ridiculous statements made by so many liberal celebrities — doesn’t tell you anything about the subjects they are addressing but tells you boatloads about them.  I can’t tell you how many such celebrities I consider to be silly individuals now that I’ve heard their political opinions, which were baseless and foolish but predictably extreme.

The Big Slur

The Democrats — the party of the big slur.  Surprising how many people fall for this kind of thing.  Mostly the young and the gullible.  But it’s all very consistent with their fake news media — just more slurs.  I must admit, they have a gift for it.  But it definitely leaves an icky residue on them.  And it’s very transparent if you have any judgment at all.

Mind you, both parties indulge in slurring their opponents, but then again I think the Democrats are better at it, or is it that’s all they have left?  The party of Bobby Kennedy used to be a party of principles, but now it’s the party of sleazy character assassination.  He must be turning over in his grave.

Slander in Politics

Now we see how low the Dems will go to slander the opposition.  Scumbags really, but very creative — a 35-year-old slander that no one can either prove or disprove.  It’s a perfect slander for taking down an honorable man.  I suppose if you have bankrupt ideas policy wise, slander is the only alternative.  But it has made a lot of people very angry to watch an honorable man like Brett Kavanaugh get skewered by sleazy politicians.

Slimy Liberals

Liberals have long used such slurs as racist, homophobic, sexist, religious bigot, etc. — the entire arsenal of political correctness — but the new and explosive one is the sexual misconduct slur.  It’s another arrow in the Left’s quiver for destroying their opposition, and the public has been totally primed for this new type of mud slinging by the truly horrific cases of actual sexual predators in some very high-profile cases.

So this new slur is a very potent one, even when used for incidents that would ordinarily pass as less than noteworthy, even harmless — certainly nowhere near blameworthy enough to destroy a man’s reputation and even his livelihood, and yet that’s exactly the intent despite having little or no justification.  But the point is the sexual-misconduct slur, even when unjustified, works very nicely to skewer the targeted — and now hapless — political opponent.

Yet it raises the issue, who is really slimier here: the Left-winger exploiting such a baseless and therefore foul accusation or the accused?  I think we all know the answer to that one.
