The Facebook Page Being Liberal has been on a recent bender about Donald Trump’s Presidential pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The sheriff was held in contempt of court for not ceasing racial profiling practices on court order.
Here are a few captures of their posts:
Now, I’m not actually disagreeing with Being Liberal here. Racial profiling is tyrannical. Having people charged with only unlawful entry into the United States is about as ridiculous as charging someone only with resisting arrest. If you’re stopping somebody simply to check papers, you are in violation Amendment IV. However, this is one very glaring hypocrisy with Being Liberal.
If you haven’t spotted it yet, here it is enlarged:
Being Liberal has long touted former president Franklin Delano Roosevelt as their page’s image. I’m sure most of you have made the connection. If you haven’t though, I’ll just leave this right here:
Franklin Roosevelt was the President who issued Executive Order 9066 and ordered the internment of all Americans of Japanese Ancestry. Despite this he is praised by Liberals as a champion and have generally tripped over themselves excusing this order. However the irony of praising FDR and using his image as an avatar, who committed the same crime on a much more atrocious scale, shines a light on the hypocrisy. Especially so in an age where Liberals want to destroy symbols of racism.
Maybe Being Liberal should remove the log from their eye and start with changing their avatar.
