Outraged, Real & Imagined

American Thinker: If You’re Not Outraged, You’re Not Paying Attention.

Robin of Berkley has another gem from her lair within the Peoples Republic of Berkley.

I have long maintained that the Left’s perpetual state of “outrage” is emotional and irrational or very cynically calculated.

From the article:

“Not only is the left’s outrage ego-based, but it is rooted in greed. Take the left’s centerpiece issue, social and economic justice. What do those flowery phrases actually mean, anyway? Aren’t they just doublespeak for envy, coveting one’s neighbor, and a gimme-gimme mentality?

When an injustice serves progressive ideology, we see the outrage in full-color display. However, at other times, the silence is deafening — or there is disingenuous posturing.”

The whole thing is worth your time!
