Some people claim that Trump in any way wished, desired, or encouraged lawless or violent behavior on January 6th and they said: «impeach 45.» The same people have repeatedly said that they want to impeach him in four years now. It started before he was elected.
We all know that these people are on the left side. But people on the right side are sick and tired of the hypocrisy of the left. This is not only happening in the U.S but in Europe as well. Who are these people on the left side that think they are above all others? Much better than others?
They are hypocrites.
Trump said on January 6th that people are on the way to peacefully and patriotically to march down to Capitol Hill. He also said, «Fight like hell.»
For the hypocrites on the left side, that was wrong. They claim it was an incitement to insurrection. So, they impeached Trump. Wow. What a great country America is.
American political journalist Michael Gerson says that political hypocrisy is «the conscious use of a mask to fool the public and gain political benefit».
Hypocrisy is the practice of engaging in the same behavior or activity for which one criticizes another or the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one`s own behavior does not conform.
In moral psychology, it is the failure to follow one`s own expressed moral rules and principles.
Hypocrisy has been a subject of folk wisdom from the beginnings of human history and the word hypocrisy comes from the Greek, which means «jealous», «play-acting», «acting out», «coward» or «dissembling».
We all know that Trump said «fight like hell», but the leftists aren`t any better. Videos show that they are a hundred times worse. But it is always difficult for the leftists to see that. The day after the inauguration, Madonna said she wanted to bomb the White House. Did someone say incitement to insurrection at that time? Nope.
But what would have happened if someone on the right side have said that? All hell would break lose.
Jesus tried to build a stable society with the ten commandments. You shall not kill. You shall not steal. But Pontius Pilatus and dark forces didn`t want to hear that and killed Jesus. Many belief systems condemn hypocrisy (that`s probably why conservatives care so much about it).
In Islam, Quranic Chapter 63 is often titled «the hypocrites». Hypocrisy is viewed as a serious sickness.
The Qur’an rails against those who claim to be believers and peacemakers, thinking they are fooling God and others, but only fool themselves.
In some translations of the Book of Job, the Hebrew word chaneph is rendered as «hypocrite», though it usually means «godless» or «profane». In the Christian Bible, Jesus condemns the scribes and Pharisees as hypocrites in the passage known as the Woes of the Pharisees.
Communists are godless. They dont believe in God. Nor in Jesus. They don`t believe in religion. The only religion they believe in is Communism.
Most people in America and Europe believe that people on the left side are much better than people on the right side. They also believe that people on the right side are stupid and racists, but all of that is a big lie. What we know is that people on the left side are hypocrites.
Hypocrites are very good at challenging the beliefs of other people, but when it comes to their own beliefs, they tend to protect them, not challenge them, Robert Wright said. Hypocrites are fairly accurate in their perceptions of others, but generally inaccurate in their perceptions of themselves.
Hypocrites tend to judge others by their behavior, but think they have special information about themselves. That they know what they are «really like», and thus effortlessly find ways to explain away selfish acts and maintain the illusion that they are better than others.
There is so much hate in the world today, but if people can be educated to see the shadow-side of their nature, it may be hoped that they will also learn to understand and love their fellow men better.
A little less hypocrisy and a little more self-knowledge can only have good results in respect for our neighbor; for we are all too prone to transfer to our fellows the injustice and violence we inflict upon our own natures.
Benjamin Franklin`s observation has been confirmed by recent studies in self-deception. In everyday reasoning, humans do little to get real evidence when taking positions or making decisions and do even less to get evidence for opposing positions. Instead, they tend to fabricate «pseudo-evidence», often after the decision had already been made.
Humans take a position, look for evidence that supports it, then, if they find some evidence, enough so that the position «makes sense», they stop thinking altogether (the «makes-sense stopping rule»). And, when pressed to produce real evidence, they tend to seek and interpret «evidence» that confirms what they already believe (the «confirmation bias»).
Moreover, some people tend to think highly of themselves, highlighting strengths and achievements, and overlooking weaknesses and failures (the «self-serving bias»). When asked to rate themselves on virtues, skills, or other desirable traits (including ethics, intelligence driving ability, and sexuality skills), a large majority say they are above average.
In the video above, Madonna said she wanted to bomb the White House. Cynthia Johnson said that Trump supporters need to be careful, and for those of you who are soldiers; make them pay. Maxime Water said she wanted to take out Trump tonight.
Johnny Depp asked; «When was the last time an actor assassinated a president»? A leader from the Lincoln Project said; «go out and put a bullet in Donald Trump». CNN said; «show me where it says that protests are supposed to be polite and peaceful».
Ellen asked Kamala Harris if she was stuck in an elevator with Trump or Pence. Who would it be? Harris said; «Does one of us have to come out alive»?
A Pennsylvania man got 20 years for threatening to «put a bullet» in Trump last year. Who do you think radicalized him? What about the Scalise shooter who appeared to be a Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer in 2017? Steve Scalise nearly died that day. Did someone blame Sanders? Nope. Who do you think radicalized that man?
Did someone say incitement to insurrection here? Nope. Any impeachment? Nope.
Political journalist Michael Gerson notes that «There is often hypocritical deception involved in political and diplomatic negotiations, which generally start with principled, non-negotiable demands that are negotiated away in the process of finding a compromise.» Gerson concludes:
Hypocrisy is unavoidable and necessary. If people were required, at all times, to live up to ideals of honesty, loyalty, and compassion in order for those ideals to exist, there would be no ideals. Being a moral person is a struggle in which everyone repeatedly fails, becoming a hypocrite in each of those moments.
A just and peacful society depends on hypocrites who ultimately refused to abondon the ideals they betray.
