New York Times Article Exposes Liberal HypocrisyPosted: March 14, 2011
Only they call it “Nimbyism”. Yeah whatever, if it walks like a duck, it’s a duck and liberals have proven themselves once the worst hypocrites.
Last week, two groups of New Yorkers who live “on or near” Prospect Park West, a prestigious address in Park Slope, filed a suit against the administration of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg to remove a nine-month-old bike lane that has commandeered a lane previously used by cars.
In Massachusetts, the formidable opponents of Cape Wind, a proposed offshore wind farm in Nantucket Sound, include members of the Kennedy family, whose compound looks out over the body of water. In Berkeley last year, the objections of store owners and residents forced the city to shelve plans for a full bus rapid transit system (B.R.T.), a form of green mass transit in which lanes that formerly served cars are blocked off and usurped by high-capacity buses that resemble above-ground subways.
The article goes on to say that once we see our neighbors doing it or accepting, we do. That people cave in to peer pressure. So that one day, we may look at a wind farm the same way we look at telephone poles today. I’m not sure that argument holds on offshore wind farms, but on shore wind farms, yes it would probably look innocuous after a while. That being said, I don’t look outside and consider the telephone poles “beautiful” and probably never will. They are just a utility.
Anyway, this article exposes the worst kind of liberals: The wealthy ones. These are the liberals in speech only. When no one is looking, they are just as materialistic as anyone else. Like fat Michael Moore. Liberals who are poor at least live by their beliefs probably because they can’t think beyond their condition of poverty. They cannot think beyond the notion that there is some magic pot of gold somewhere in which they should have their share.
