The truth about the Wisconsin protesters

It is time for those protesting against Governor Scott Walker to be given a reality check much colder than the perfectly timed snow. Governor Walker is too diplomatic to say it, but private citizens have the luxury of hammering the truth home.

Leftist protesters are a bunch of crybabies who have failed at life. There. Now that it’s been said, time for more hard truths.

Nobody ever went up to people and begged them to become schoolteachers or social workers. People do not go into those fields to get rich. They do it out of love for what they do, or so they falsely claim. People are often young and idealistic, which is code for stupid. They think that standing in line serving people at soup kitchens will improve society more than making millions of dollars and building soup kitchens.

These leftist crybabies who complain about “tax cuts for the rich” could have become stockbrokers, investment bankers, and corporate attorneys. They did not have to become legal aid lawyers. They chose to be bleeding hearts, with the implied understanding that they would gain a good feeling in their hearts rather than become “greedy” capitalists focused on money.

Earth to bleeding hearts: life costs money. There is nothing noble about being poor. You get tax breaks for earning enough money to qualify for them by actually paying taxes. Cutting taxes for the rich is a way of giving the producers back a fraction of their own money.

Try being one of these top producers. Work on Wall Street. Many of these people work long hours, don’t take vacations, put their careers above marriage and children, and know that at any moment they can be fired because they have no union protection. I lived that life for fifteen years, and loved every minute of it. Regrets are for whiners, also known as liberals.

Americans are sick of whiners, especially phony whiners. Liberals would be barely tolerable if they had an ounce of integrity and respect for the rule of law.

When Barack Obama won the 2008 election, Republicans took their medicine and went to work. They did use the filibuster, which is entirely legal. Mr. Obama rammed a leftist agenda down Republican throats under the slogans “Elections have consequences” and “I won.”

Well, Republicans won big in 2010, and Democrats would show honor by going to work and fighting to win the next election. Instead, teachers went on strike, which is illegal. Then Democratic legislators fled the state, which is illegal. If “the ends justify the means” is what the left is teaching our children, then perhaps the teachers and legislators should stay away. Mass firings can solve that problem.

Liberals then hold rallies that they claim are about “coming together.” This is a total lie. Liberals have no interest in bringing people together. They survive by ripping Americans apart and pitting them against each other based on race, gender, and class. Coming together involves common principles, not a collection of various grievance-mongers protesting the right to protest for the sake of protesting.

Liberals care about the earth except when they leave their signs on the lawn to ruin the grass. They preach tolerance when not keying cars and stealing lawn signs. They favor civility except when comparing Republicans to Hitler.

Most importantly, they bash the greedy and selfish while refusing to admit that they are greedy and selfish, only without the results.
