There was a time, in years past, when calling someone a hypocrite was taken as an insult to a person’s integrity, or more specifically their lack thereof. That is no longer the case. Today’s political Left, Democrats in particular, now seemingly take pride in their ability to shift positions at will. They do so in all sincerity, with a straight face while facing no repercussions in either the media or at the polls. As Grouch Marx once said regarding politicians: “Sincerity is the key to success. Once you can fake that you’ve got it made.” Democrats have perfected this into an art form.

Today, as evidenced by the treatment of Elon Musk’s recent disclosures on Twitter, we have seen the entire Left do a complete 180 regarding Free speech government secrecy and collusions with big business.

Many people who may have been around back in the 60s and 70s, may be confused about this whole Elon Musk/Twitter kerfuffle.  If you are unclear on this, join the crowd. During those years the Left told us that big government and big business were not to be trusted and that freedom of speech was an ingrained strength of the nation. Mario Savio, a leader in the so-called Free Speech Movement on the Berkeley campus, was an icon of the urban leftist radicals. Free speech was valued at that time, so much so that battles, between demonstrators and police, were fought over the subject on the Berkeley campus.
