ForAmerica's mission is to reinvigorate the American people with the principles of American exceptionalism: personal freedom, personal responsibility, a commitment to Judeo-Christian values, and a strong national defense.
OK. Judeo-Christian values, like the Ten Commandments that y'all love to put on school and courthouse walls.
OK, let's try #9 on for size-"Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour." via Exodus 20:16(KJV).
While we're in the neighborhood, let's refresh our memory of a certain pejorative per Merriam-Webster
Definition of IDIOT
1 usually offensive : a person affected with extreme mental retardation
2 : a foolish or stupid person
According to ForAmerica, Barbra Steisand qualifies.
Liberal icon Barbara Streisand said, “Obama has been more fiscally conservative than any other president in recent history, with the exception of President Bill Clinton.” Hey Babs! What about the $5.4 trillion Obama added to our national debt? LIKE if you agree:Streisand is an idiot!
They don't give you a "dislike" button, Brett, otherwise I would have hit it.
As I just put up on Facebook-
Babs gets a flunking grade in economics (“Obama has been more fiscally conservative than any other president in recent history, with the exception of President Bill Clinton.”) or a passing grade in Spin 697 ("The Big Lie" and How to Tell it), but you don't get to be a star singer and actress with a 65 IQ. Hence, the "idiot" label isn't called for. We didn't like it when Dubya had his IQ quartered by his foes, so let's not return the favor.
She doesn't meet the first definition for sure. Misguided, for sure. Mentally handicapped, no.
She only very loosely meets the second version. She's not stupid, but she might well be foolish. Not in an everyday sense (she's a savvy businesswoman and good entertainer) but in the sense that "The fool says in his heart, 'There is no God'" from both Psalm 14:1 and 53:1; David liked it so much, he plagiarized himself.
However, that would require more of a theological argument to justify, more that Bozell and friends would likely want to take a stab at.
Babs is Jewish by background and pretty much a down-the-line liberal, the archetype of the modern Hollywood lefty, or at least in the top five on a conservative sneer list. She's quoted here as
being “proud” to be Jewish, and described herself as “a Jewess through and through, although I’m not religious.”
She was raised in an Orthodox home, but cut her teeth singing in gay clubs (not unlike Bette Midler, if memory serves; hey, I didn't know Barry Manilow was playing piano for Bette at that gig) before Broadway snapped her up, so she's not the most devout Jew. If you wanted to take a stab at calling her theologically foolish, she'd be fair game; just be careful of the three fingers pointing back at you while you point her out.
It's a cheap shot to call her an idiot. She might be bearing false witness by making Kennedy and Carter into spendthrifts vis-a-vis Obama (not to mention the various Republicans), but that doesn't make it right to return the favor. Try remembering the 9th commandment as well as the legendary 11th commandment.
