Virginian Pilot Supports Secession!?
There's an article in The Blaze 30 States Petition Federal Government to Secede After Election
Liberals often like to compare President Barack Obama to former President Abraham Lincoln. The comparison is usually dismissed as laughably hagiographical, but judging by one unexpected bit of fallout from Tuesday’s election, it could well end up being accurate in just one respect: Like Lincoln, Obama is facing requests by the citizens of numerous states to secede from the union.However, unlike with Lincoln, these requests are peaceful, and highly unlikely to do anything at all except generate news headlines. A massive number of petitions are currently circulating on Change.org, a website designed to call for action by the federal government or by private institutions on particular causes, calling for particular states to be granted permission to secede.Nor are they confined to the usual suspects (IE the Southern States). In actuality, the mix of states asking to secede is deeply bipartisan, ranging from the deeply red (Alabama and South Carolina) to the deeply blue (New York) to the swing (Pennsylvania). Nor are the states asking to secede in any way geographically clustered. Northern states (New York), Midwestern states (Michigan), Southern states (Alabama) and Western states (Nevada) have all filed petitions of their own. Most swing states this election cycle, with the exception of Ohio, have a petition of their own, and all of them have at least 1,000 signatures, with even some of the bluest states in the union easily keeping pace with their red counterparts.
So what do Liberals think of this issue? Let’s go to the reliably Liberal Virginian Pilot whose remaining staff is not particularly talented but who can, like victims of Tourette Syndrome, be depended on to tell us what’s on their minds. This was the editorial cartoon they ran in the print version of the paper today.
Now if I thought of my neighbors like that I would welcome their decision to go away and leave me to my moral and intellectual superiority.
It’s cartoons like this that make looking at papers like the Virginian Pilot worthwhile. Quite an insight isn’t it?

Ah the liberal mind, hypocritical to the nth degree. Those who make their living preaching tolerance and understanding while oozing moral superiority out of every pore in their body. To even breath the same air as lesser mortals must be incomprehensible to them.Post a Comment
