Rick Santorum gave a speech in Detroit on February 16th, 2012 on the topic of economics from a conservative point of view. As usual, the liberal media pulled an out-of-context paragraph and then gave it their own Leftist interpretation:
“I’m not about equality of result when it comes to income inequality. There is income inequality in America. There always has been and, hopefully, and I do say that, there always will be.”
To Liberals who don’t know anything about economics, these comments are like blood to chickens. “As a cannibalistic animal, chickens are provoked by the sight of blood and will peck at each other, eventually killing off much of the flock.”
In 1939, the National Band & Tag Company invented small glasses with red lenses designed to be held on the chicken’s beak with a cotter pin that went through the nostrils. One advertisement for the “rose-colored glasses” read, “Stop Cannibalism with National’s New . . . ANTI-PIX.” If you don’t believe me, watch the 1947 Paramount Newsreel [below] about the rose-colored chicken glasses. For more information see here, here and here.
Like chickens, Liberals can’t help from picking conservatives to death by misrepresenting their views.
If Liberals want income equality, let them go to Cuba. Yes, we do have income inequality in the United States, and it’s a good thing. If we had income equality, we would all be equally poor.
