So … Painfully … Awkward …
There’s no difference between “Republicans” and Democrats in Washington, D.C. – both are, as we’ve previously said, “two-faced, big-spending, liberty-depriving, imperialistic, crony capitalistic, currency manipulating, morally sanctimonious, special interest suckling politwhores.”
Both are also painfully awkward to watch in any setting in which music is being played …
For example, take the ceremony held in Washington, D.C. this week to mark the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Don’t get us wrong: We support equal rights for all Americans regardless of color, creed, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation. In fact one of the central tenets of any new political party (and God knows we need one) must be the acknowledgment that the promise of individual liberty should extend to everybody in this country equally.
“Equality of opportunity, not equality of outcome …” we’ve often said.
Liberty and racism are simple incompatible with one another … and while we don’t approve of every provision of the 1964 law, we certainly embrace the purpose behind it.
Leave it to leaders of the U.S. Congress, though, to totally screw up what could have been a nice moment.
During the ceremony, U.S. Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio), U.S. Rep. John Lewis (D-Georgia), U.S. Senator Carl Levin (D-Michigan), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (RINO-Kentucky), Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada), House Speaker John Boehner (RINO-Ohio) all linked arms and began to sway (or attempt to sway) to the Charles Albert Tindley gospel song “We Shall Overcome.”
Get ready for one of the most awkward moments ever captured on film …
