Ray Taliaferro’s Monumental Hypocrisy: The $800 Billion Bailout Bill and the Democrats

October 15, 2008

Last week, Silverwolf set the shortwave cylinder spinning till it sought repose on Ray Taliaferro’s nightly verbal blogs from Fogsville, USA, that quiet country hamlet also known as San Frisco.

Silverwolf had sought to see if Taliaferro might be commenting on the $700  Billion (finalized as over $800 Billion) Bailout Bill, designed to let the Keynesians in the Financial Industry loot the US Treasury in one way or another. And, gratifyingly, Taliaferro was not only commenting on the Bill, but also attacking it with his usual pitbull ferocity, and making many of the exact same points that the Ron Paul camp had been making in its strong opposition to the Bill, which obviously marks the beginning of an all-out Socialist banking system. Taliaferro was scathing in his attacks, and it was good to be on the same side of the fence with him for once, but one noticed that he constantly mentioned the names of Bush and Cheney and the Republicans in association with the Bill. Since Silverwolf had examined who had voted for the Bill the first time around in the House, and subsequently who had supported it in the Senate, as well as examining and pondering the breakdown of votes by party, it was curious to note that Taliaferro, who is a “barking-dog” for the Obama/Democratic Party philosophy, much as Silverwolf is one for the Jeffersonian/Libertarian Philosophy, never mentioned once in an hour that the Bill had been supported by the Democrats in the House by a margin of almost exactly 2-to-1, while the House Republicans had opposed it by almost exactly 2-to-1, nor did he mention once in that hour that the Bill was supported in the Senate by Obama, Biden, Clinton, Dodd, Schumer, Frank, and a whole bunch of  those “wonderful Democrats” he is always braying about. And what subsequent hypocrisy when, after soundly lambasting the supporters of this Bill, Taliaferro completely fails to mention that Obama voted yes for this transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich, but rather, on the contrary, he goes into his usual paean of praise for Saint Obama, the man who would throw people in jail for cannabis, but who cannot control his own tobacco addiction.

This is such a classical example of the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party and its propaganda machine that it might well serve to be included in a textbook of techniques of political propaganda. And remember that propaganda is always a lie, because someone is trying to convince you of something by manipulating the facts, or obfuscating other facts. Don’t be convinced.

Until the people of America reject all hypocrisy and contradiction in their politics and their economics, they will continue to suffer.

Vote Libertarian in 2008.
