Hypocrisy, Thy Name Is Republican


When it comes down to hypocrisy, the Conservatives are past masters at spewing their lies...but why? Let's take a close examination of some of their lies and see if we can figure it out.

Take the Affordable Care Act...



We haven't heard much about the Cons' opposition to it for awhile, maybe they understand that millions of Americans are now covered? Maybe so, unless their base objects...

"After conservative freakout, McConnell confirms that he will fast-track Obamacare repeal."

"Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell alarmed his conservative allies on Tuesday when he declared "no one thinks" a Republican Senate will vote to repeal Obamacare because even if Republicans retake control of the Senate, they won't have the 60 votes they need to thwart a Democratic filibuster.

"Flash-forward 48 hours, however, and now McConnell is singing a different song:
"Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., says he would be willing to repeal Obamacare with a simple majority if he takes over as majority leader in January, his spokesman told the Washington Examiner on Thursday."
"This would require McConnell to use the budget reconciliation process, a set of rules designed to allow budgetary measures to move through the Senate with a simple majority, avoiding the threat of a filibuster..."

That must be an isolated incident you say, Conservatives believe in the TRUTH. So let's take a look a few of the Conservatives in action...there was this guy:



But that was awhile back, you argue.  What about the stalwart truth-tellers of today? Well, okay here's another typical Conservative liar...



Of course that's just another isolated incident, not all Conservatives are guilty of hypocrisy...



And at least our proud heritage of journalism catches the hypocrites at work and reports it to us immediately...



Let's find a few more examples, shall we? Like this...



And this...



And this.



And if you believe all that hype, you WILL get to see this again...



And finally, why DO the Conservatives lie so much? Why do they have to be such flaming hypocrites?  Maybe because of this...



********************

Conservatives have no "new ideas" because they just want two things: Lower taxes for the rich and the elimination of any rules protecting the public that infringes on the bottom line of the wealthy.

Everything else is smoke. Everything else is a lie. Everything else is hypocrisy.

They need the support of the ignorant and superstitious and the mean, so they pretend to believe in states' rights, "individual freedom," the "right to life," and other such nonsense.

They even deny science to keep their evangelicals enthralled with Conservatism.

Election Day is right around the corner and the Conservative hypocrisy has been strident enough to cause our ears to bleed.

It would be much better for the democratic process if Conservatism wasn't allowed.  Maybe there oughta be a law. - Joyce, Jnr.
