A call-out to "criticalthinking"
On November 7, a one “criticalthinking” made this statement: “All we need to do now is find a poor immigrant and kick him in the gut and we will have the perfect conservative month!” http://newsbusters.org/blogs/brent-baker/2009/11/07/cringe-mass-killer-muslim-it-inflames-right-wing-makes-it-much-worse
A crude and juvenile assumption that conservatives are hate-filled individuals who enjoy cruelty inflicted upon others.
I would in turn ask “criticalthinking” what have YOU done personally to help any immigrants? Allow me to tell you what this conservative has done. I paid the lawyer’s fees to help a single mother and her two children to stay in this country. Why? She had to leave Mexico because her children were being sexually molested by a member of her family and she had no other recourse than to leave that horrid situation and come to this country, albeit illegally. Furthermore, I paid to have her children receive psychological counseling.
I don’t say this to receive praise or accolades. I neither need them nor want them. If anything, such a thing will probably bring on ignorant statements such as “Hey! I thought you ‘klanservatives’ were about keeping the law.”
Truth is, we are. But more than that, we are about conserving charity - something that begins with oneself. Charity, not government enforced altruism, is what we are about.
Charity does not come from moronic bumper stickers like “Practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty” or “Coexist” Charity is not random or arbitrary. It is constant.
This is something that is lost to the imbeciles of the MSM: that people of faith perform acts of charity in silence without seeking the praise of the world. It cannot be legislated. It cannot be enforced. This is what is taught in holy scriptures and in the Talmud. This is what is practiced by true conservatives whether they believe in a Supreme Being or not.
So, again, I ask what have you personally done for any poor immigrants other than to make light of them in an inexorably stupid example? Remember though, that giving a ratty shirt or worn-out shoes to Goodwill and feeling good about it does not count as charity.
The ball is in your court. Care to answer?
