Where’s the Dignity, Democrats?

Can’t we have at least some dignity in our politics?

The people at the Democratic National Convention are handing out free condoms — you won’t believe the warning on them!!

Also seen at the DNC?  One button which reads “Once You Vote Black, You Never Go Back” and another which reads, “Sluts Vote.”

Do people actually wonder why Democrats have problems attracting Christian voters?

    First time reader, first time poster.
    I’m rather embarrassed for you Bristol.
    Your words might have more impact if self improvement was part of your plan in life. Self improvement includes things like higher education, parenting classes, etc.
    Just a suggestion. Anyway hopefully, you don’t pay somebody to write this screed for you.

      Wasillamom= MORON

        okay liberty, this is the second post that I’ve seen that you’ve personally attacked someone by calling names because the poster said something you didn’t like. Grow up little child.

    Since Bristol is so concerned with dignity I’m sure she will soon post her outrage at the RNC attendees who threw peanuts at a black camerawoman covering the event and yelled “this is how we treat animals”.

      (Saul Alinsky) Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.

      Supossedly ridicule cannot be rebuffed, which is why attackers use the tactic. The wise speak wisdom, the kind hearted speak kindness and the ridiculous speak ridicule. No need to rebuff. Let S. Alinsky followers reveal themselves as whining, “ridiculous” manipulators.

      In fairness, the peanut-throwers were ejected. The behavior was racist and outrageous, but the the RNC did not support or protect it. In fact, in the CNN camerawoman’s own words, “it’s not exclusive to Republicans, it could have happened anywhere, in Washington, D.C. or even at the Democratic National Convention.” I greatly admire that she did not turn it into a political issue. Sadly, this apparently isn’t her first brush with racism. Again, in her own words, “We haven’t come that far. Black people have been in bondage longer then they have been free. Stuff like this will continue to be a part of the black experience.” Yet she is not giving any more interviews, and wants to put this incident behind her. In my opinion, she’s a woman of true grace and dignity!

        Thank god her last name isn’t Palin or she would have immediately tried to capitalize on it to make some money.

  • Gilly

    How about this for dignity. A Hollywood actor named Clint Eastwood denigrates the office of the Presidency and thousands of Republicans in the audience laugh and cheer. Pretty bad huh? Interesting how most conservatives don’t want actors or singers to speak (shut up and sing right Dixie Chicks) about politics but made a big exception for Dirty Harry. An actor who told his deluded representation of the president to “shut up”. How disrespectful. Then he claimed that our president told him to tell Mitt Romney to go f**k himself. That is beyond disrespectful. Why was that tolerated by the RNC? Do conservative christians now like language like that? Why wasn’t Bristol Palin appalled by this behavior?

    Back to controlling the responses right Bristol? You inflame but can’t take the heat. You are given examples of reprehesible behaviour by people on your side of the aisle, yet you NEVER take them to task. In the dictionary under HYPOCRITE, there are 2 pictures. One of you and one of your mother.

      The left see the right as deficient, the right see the left as deficient . It is like neighbors arguing w/ a fence between them. One wants gov. to control w/out God’s standard and reject any personal responsibilities. The right wants freedom to chose their own way with personal guidance from a Higher Power. The difference is huge. That is why leftees come to a conservative blog to attempt to control what isn’t theirs, because they have so litttle substance in their minds/hearts. They are unable to establish thot or deeds on their own but depend on on a pre designed mantra. The “standards” they embrace reflect little or no boundaries for themselves while they want to establish controlling boundaries for others. Control is the name of their game, and the meaning of self respect is pitifully absent. Their mantra is void of substance, which is why they are here instead of having their own blog site. They cannot state a position. They can only whine and “tattle” on someone else’s blog .

    • Bree Merr

      June, do you think you have thot this thru? Look at the caustic posts here. Full of attack nonsense. Do you have your own blog that is as open as you suggest?

      • Pam

        Bree,
        ‘thot’ is not a word. The word you want is spelled t-h-o-u-G-H-t

        • MiddleRoader

          Quibbling, I know, but I think “thot” is becoming an accepted internet slang for thought. (like thru, nite, b/c or cuz, etc.) I have noticed a few typos (or should I say, typographical errors) in my own posts, and if there’s a way to edit a post after sending it, I don’t know it. Bree’s point was clear. I’m in the education field, so these spelling short-cuts do grate on me, but these are blog posts, not research papers.

  • Aly

    Quite frankly Bristol I don’t care if you were offended by this, because you’re not voting for Obama anyway.

    • Bree Merr

      Aly, neither am I voting for BHO and lots of people I know. Thanks due to your post I had the opportunity to say that!!

  • Bo

    Get over yourself, cupcake! I hardly think you have standing to be judging the “dignity” of others . . . or feigning outrage over the use of the word “slut” on a button. Now, if someone were to call YOU a slut, perhaps you would have a . . . oh, yes, I forgot . . . never mind [slut].

    • liberty

      Bo you must be one of those people Rush talks about all the time the MORON VOTER.

  • cathy

    Funny you should ask about dignity! People laughing when audience members yelled, “Kill him”, Clint Eastwood’s speech, the ugly comments you and others have made about the President. I do agree that there should be dignity in the office and from people on both sides. The real question is, “What could you and all of us do to mend the gap and ensure a better future for you, your son, my kids and all of our children?” How can we start to work together?

  • cassandra

    Bristol, I don’t have a clue how you can handle all the nasty ignorant people and their comments. They aren’t about me and I find them so hurtful! You made a mistake but thank God our God is a God of Forgiveness and Mercy… Its not about our past its about what we do after our mistakes! Thank you for being a witness for Christ!

  • Tom Wiley

    I wonder what type of voter Democrats are trying to attract? Sounds like some of the comments here reflect the same values.

  • Linda

    Bristol you need to clean up the mess on your own side of the aisle before you dare attack democrats for not having enough dignity. Calling our president a Muslim, a socialist, a czar, anti-American etc. is much worse than just handing out condoms. If republicans did that you probably would think it was funny.

    • Bree Merr

      So Linda, you say — being a muslim, marxist is a terrible thing? hummmm
