Rejecting the Lies: Why so LIttle Publicity?

Michelle Malkin long ago earned her spurs for, in part, exposing the ulterior motives of Corruptocrats' oppressive mommy state.  In her article, "Hey, Eric Holder: Meet My People" she celebrates the lives of some US patriots who have thrown off the yoke of hyphenated Americanism.  Katrina Pierson is of them.  She supports limited government principles and rejects left-wing identity politics. 

Katrina admonished the NCAA's racist policies and asserted that the reality is that we colored people no longer require the assistance from other Negros for advancement,” Pierson said. “These groups run to the rescue of distressed brown people only when the media deems it newsworthy. Meanwhile, there are inner city black children who continue to grow up fatherless while sharing a neighborhood with stray bullets, drugs and a plethora of liquor stores on every corner.

Katrina Pierson is a hero.  For further reading go here.  

Unfortunately, it seems as if for every liberty loving hero there is a would-be-thief in progressive-socialist clothing echoing the lets-spread-the-wealth-around philosophies of O-buma.  Michael Moore is one of them.  Be certain to sanitize after watching this.  Such thievery exists because we allow it to occur.  Remember the words of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.  Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.   

In his article "Re: Michael Moore vs. Abraham Lincoln," John Steele Gordon expresses dismay that the mainstream compliant and complicit media's representatives provide Moore an arena in which he can disseminate his socialist propaganda.  Together they have little regard for facts.  Gordon asks pointedly, how could the world be vastly richer today — and nearly everyone’s standard of living is vastly higher than it was a century ago — if wealth can only be redistributed not created?  

Moore also doesn’t seem to understand the concept of capital and its centrality to wealth creation. General Motors could not manufacture cars without the auto workers who work in GM factories. But the workers equally could not manufacture cars without the GM factories to work in. And factories are capital, which, in this sense, is defined as “accumulated goods devoted to the production of other goods.  

Gordon further reveals Moore's inability to comprehend economic matters by explaining that the so-called rich in the real world don’t stash their hoards of cash in money bins. They invest it in factories and research and design, in order to make new goods that people need, often so that they can produce new goods themselves more easily and quickly.  Moore should heed Lincoln's advice that it is better to be silent and thought a fool than to open one's mouth only to remove all doubt.

May your gods be with you.
