The Left needs to start looking for the beam

by thoughtfulconservative

Just the post to throw back a Bible verse the Left loves to use. And a word the Left likes to throw at people who try to live what they believe, yet falter sometimes.

Matthew 7:1-5

1“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

A local left-of-center blogger recently juxtaposed a picture of Scott Walker and Adolph Hitler. Sorry, there will be no link. It disgusts me and my respect for this formerly engaging blogger has dropped to new lows. That any sane person could see a similarity between a fine man and a mass murdering psychopath is beyond me.

To their credit several left-of-center bloggers and commenters have criticized him for doing this.

He posted an “explanation” later. Here is the jist.

Of course I was not really comparing the two.

But he was. “Two Ambitious Men” was the title of the post.

Tell me that the Gableman campaign did not know exactly what they were doing when they juxtaposed a picture of Justice Butler next to that of a sex offender who also happened to be the same race as Butler?

They may have known what they were doing. I don’t know. Maybe I’ll ask Justice Gableman if I see him again. He’ll probably deny it. So what will be gained?

The fact remains that any sex offender, as vile and disgusting as the crime may be, is on such a higher plane than Hitler.

Maybe, as someone said, Tim should stick to baseball.

Apologies to anyone offended.

Yet, the fact that the pictures remain posted makes me doubt the sincerity of the apology.

The fact of the matter remains that when the Left wins elections, it’s because of issues and when they lose elections, it must be that the Right somehow did something so despicable that they must be compared with Nazis.

The Left needs to grow up.
