So I posted this on FB today from dictionary.com .
Hypocrite- noun. a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or
religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually
possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs.
a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude,
especially one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or
her public statements.
from Urban dictionary: (1) A person who engages in the same behaviors he condemns others for.
(2) A person who professes certain ideals, but fails to live up to them.
(3) A person who holds other people to higher standards than he holds himself.
only reliable product of an organized religion is a flock of hypocrites
who feel that only *their* hypocrisy is divinely sanctioned.
am not going to lie. I posted it in response to the fact that Mike
Pence used a private email server and account while he was governor of
is the self righteous indignation from the right? Where are the chants
of "Lock him up"? Now don't get me wrong, I don't think Pence should
be locked up for doing something stupid. If we locked up every person
that has done something stupid in their lives, everyone would be in
let's be honest whether you're the governor of Indiana or the Secretary
of State, or POTUS you shouldn't be using a private server, email
account or cell phone because there is someone at a computer in their
mother's basement in smalltown USA or Russia that spends all of their
waking hours trying to hack into high value targets. There are bad
hombres or comrades who would pay top dollar/ruble for the info garnered
in a hack.
probably wouldn't give a fig about this if email security hadn't been a
huge cornerstone in Mr. Pence's boss' campaign. OMG the emails. We
wasted time and energy and MONEY on Hillary's emails and what did we
get...nothing to prosecute. When the investigation was reopened days
before the election, here is Mr. Pence's reaction from Twitter
"@realDonaldTrump and I commend the FBI for reopening an investigation into Clinton's personal email server because no one is above the law."
are you Mr. Pence, neither are you. An honest man might have had an
"oh shit" moment and thought, "Hey, I am doing almost the same thing. I
should probably change things so when the time comes I can come clean
and say honestly that I made a mistake and fixed it." Own this Mr.
Pence; you have an opportunity to appeal to your detractors. Don't lie
and deflect. People are on to you and the number of those people grows
The hypocrisy displayed by both parties is both
mortifying and laughable. I loved watching Mitch McConnell accuse Dems
of stalling Senate cabinet confirmations. Does he not remember Merrick
Garland? When stuff like this happens, I seriously want to scream at
the TV. There isn't a separate set of rules for different parties or
races or religions.
This is simply a matter of right and wrong.
I spent some time reading about how 45 thinks the investigation of ties to Russia is a witch hunt. Maybe it is.
some advice for 45. If it truly is a witch hunt and you have NOTHING
to hide, keep quiet, let the investigation finish and find nothing but
witches. Then, I don't care if you spend a weekend at Mar-a-Lago
tweeting, "I told you so!"
See, I think you have a lot
to hide because you are protesting more than an actress in Hamlet. I
think you have enough financial dealings with Russia to show up on a tax
return which is why they haven't been released. I think you are
beholden to the president of Russia which I am guessing is terrifying if
you aren't president of the free world.
I think we're
going to learn a lot in the coming months. I hope I am wrong about what
we're going to find out. I hope the glimmer of presidential-ness you
showed the other night grows like a wildfire and that the positive
things you've promised move towards fruition and I hope someone who has
an open mind and moderate beliefs steers you straighter on some of your
more ridiculous promises. You are a smart man 45...billions of dollars
are needed for far more important things than a wall
on our Southern border.
