Question Insanity: What to Ask Progressives

  • After Eric Holder called Americans a nation of cowards, what has he done personally to help the situation?
  • If diversity training benefits everyone, why do those classes mostly consist of white heterosexual males?
  • Why is a huge poisonous cloud over a volcano considered magnificent -- but a smokestack over an American factory is ugly and harmful?
  • How many Kyoto Protocols are rendered pointless by one medium-sized volcanic eruption?
  • Why is burning gas in my car hurting the planet, but setting fire to housing developments in California is saving it?
  • Why does Hollywood glamorize drug addicts, criminals, liberal Democrats, and mentally challenged people? What do they all have in common?
  • How come Hollywood can always find a good side in thugs, but never in businesspeople? What was the last movie that pictured a self-reliant, industrious man as a role model?
  • If it's capitalist greed that forces Hollywood to exploit the lowest human instincts, why didn't the same greed force Hollywood to exploit America's patriotism and make war movies showing the U.S. presence in Iraq and Afghanistan as a force for good? Wouldn't one such film bring more green cash than all the anti-American flops in the recent years? Where was Hollywood's capitalist greed then?
  • How come those calling Sarah Palin a "bimbo" often look like part of Paris Hilton's entourage?
  • If there are no absolutes and family is an antiquated tool of bourgeois oppression, why is having gay marriage an absolute must?
  • Would you know from the media coverage that there are more sex offenders among public school teachers then among Catholic priests? How come the church gets the blame and the Department of Education doesn't?
  • Why is the media so outspoken about sex abusers being priests, but avoids calling them homosexual pedophiles? Who are they afraid to offend?
  • Why do those who decry modern civilization never live far from shopping centers and why don't grind their coffee with a stone ax?
  • If we are called a "consumer society" because we consume, why aren't we also called an "excreter society" because we excrete? For that matter we also sleep, dream, talk, think, invent, play music, raise children, feel pain, get sick and die. Many of us work for a living. Why aren't we called a "producer society" because we produce the things we consume? Who puts these labels on us and for what purpose?
  • How come the unselfish Americans hate their country out of personal frustrations, while the selfish ones defend America with their lives?
  • If describing terrorists as freedom fighters is justified by the journalistic principle of neutrality, what is the name of the principle that justifies describing U.S. troops as rapists and murderers?
  • When the media portrays the killing of terrorists as "slaughter of civilians," while slaughter of civilians is portrayed as "resistance to occupation," is the media really being neutral? Whose side are they really on?
  • If Hollywood types are so opposed to capitalism, why is there a warning against unauthorized distribution of their movies?
  • Why is experimenting on animals cruel, but experimenting on human embryos compassionate?
  • How come industrial logging is a crime against nature, but the destruction of forests by wildfires is a natural cycle of life?
  • Why do those who object to tampering with the environment approve of tampering with the economy? Isn't the economy also a fragile ecosystem where a sudden change can trigger a devastating chain reaction?
  • Isn't the latest economic crisis such a chain reaction?
