O’Rourke is Just Another Political Chameleon

As it turns out, Robert Francis O’Rourke is just another politician who will vote one way, then turn around and promise just the opposite. It seems many of our political class are like this. They’ll say whatever they must – be whoever a particular crowd wants them to be. Like Barack Obama, it seems old Beto is just another empty canvas. His supporters and the media get to envision what they want him to look like, and that’s what he will become.

But at least a couple of former supporters aren’t buying it.

Cultural Appropriation is Evidently not Flattering

Unless you are a democrat trying to beat a conservative Republican in a Senate race.

It’s said that “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.” That is, to imitate someone is to pay the person a genuine compliment.

Take for example the modern day British Royal Family and in particular, the lovely Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton – wife of Prince William. Ever since her engagement to Wills, she’s been the envy of England and the Western World.

Her hair, her clothing, shoes and jewelry – everything she wears becomes an instant classic and is sought by her female fan base. It seems not five minutes after she is seen in something new, fashionistas are searching the web for knockoffs. Throngs of women want to look and dress like Kate.

And last I checked, she doesn’t seem the least bit upset by it.

However for many, particularly leftist minorities, such imitation is not considered flattering, but cultural appropriation.

Wikipedia defines cultural appropriation as, “the adoption of elements of a minority culture by members of the dominant culture. It is distinguished from an equal cultural exchange due to an imbalance of power, often as a byproduct of colonialism and oppression.” read more
