Bloviating Zeppelin: Censured For The Truth

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Censured For The Truth

Colorado State Rep. Douglas Bruce, a Republican, was removed from the podium yesterday for referring to illegal immigrants as "illiterate peasants."

I would like to have the opportunity to state at the microphone why I don't think we need 5,000 more illiterate peasants in Colorado."

I'll keep this short but concise:

Definition of illiterate:
1: having little or no education; especially : unable to read or write 2 a: showing or marked by a lack of familiarity with language and literature b: violating approved patterns of speaking or writing3: showing or marked by a lack of acquaintance with the fundamentals of a particular field of knowledge

Definition of peasant:
1: a member of a European class of persons tilling the soil as small landowners or as laborers; also : a member of a similar class elsewhere2: a usually uneducated person of low social status

Which portion of what Representative Bruce said is inaccurate?

He is completely accurate, but Truth is not appreciated in certain circles, and is reviled by liberal politicians these days.

This is what happens when you wander away from the PC guidelines. Colorado seems to have quite a few elected officials who are not falling into line with the accepted meme of tolerance for invaders.

*tsk tsk*

What ever will Obama say about this?

Wow! Censured from the State Legislature. This wouldn't have happened in Texas, we don't have anybody listening at our State house.

Mark: you should have heard, in the soundbite, that SHARP intake of air and the "OH NO"s exclaimed in the surrounding gallery when he said that. It was as if all these pussies were slapped in the face themselves.

Benning: Obama will crush this rebellion with a black boot on numerous necks.

DD2: cool, thanks for the kudos!

BWH: not living in Tejas, I cannot adjudge this but must take you at face value -- wait, are those crickets chirping in Austin?

PC rules over truth you know. We must always put the hurt feelings of the law breaking aliens above the safety of American citizens.

I think Bruce may need to take a closer look at his party and understand what it has become, BZ. He may want to follow Lieberman's example and get out!

Freedom of speech has lost all meaning with the liberal left. :(

Whether he's accurate or not, society needs to quit being "offended" by every little thing. It's like walking verbal eggshells around the pc police.

So he said what he said. Were any feelings actually hurt? I think it's just fabricated outrage. Who cares? Grow some thicker skin, get a life, or something.

Wordsmith: I believe that most if not all "offense" these days is entirely manufactured for the sole purpose of acquiring victimhood and thusly acquiring sympathy status.
