"Do As I Say"

The title "Do As I Say", a documentary by Nick Tucker based on Peter Schweizer's book, strikes the postmodern Left's new tone to perfection. As they're shedding the last vestiges of liberalism, authoritarian "Shut Up" and "Nanny Knows Best" have become the dominant chord. But that's not the substance matter with which this movie deals. It's about hypocrisy. That's rive too.

The email before me proclaims:

New Film Exposes Al Gore Getting Rich off of Global Warming Scam

"Do As I Say proves that Al Gore is a phony and a fraud that does not practice what he preaches, as well as uncovering blatant hypocrisy and double standards of so many other leading liberals."

"This hip and hard-hitting documentary reveals that the two-faced mantra "do as I say, not as I do" has become the unwritten golden rule of liberal leaders who make their livings, and their fortunes, waging war against the very economic system that has allowed them to succeed beyond most peoples wildest dreams."

"Michael Moore, Al Gore, Hillary Clinton, Noam Chomsky, The Kennedys and George Soros all figure prominently in this uncompromising look at how some of our country’s most liberal leaders publicly deplore capitalism and oppose free enterprise, while privately amassing enormous entrepreneurial wealth."

"Al Gore parades around the globe condemning humans for causing global warming and destroying the earth. He chastises us for our way of life and demands that we reduce our "carbon footprint". All the while, he has amassed a fortune and been the beneficiary of his doom and gloom scare tactics."

"Al Gore refuses to do public interviews because he is unable to defend his positions and claims. Do As I Say exposes Al Gore as the fraud that he is and proves that the liberal environmental movement is a scam."

"Do As I Say uncovers not only Al Gore's hypocrisy, but also the hypocrisy of other liberals like Michael Moore, Hillary Clinton, Noam Chomsky, The Kennedys and George Soros."

"Hypocrites come in all shapes and sizes. And when it comes to politics, hypocrisy is just part of the game. But the press only tends to cover half the story. For decades, the American people have benefited from the media's meticulous investigation of hypocrisy among conservative leaders. Meanwhile, liberal hypocrisy gets a free pass. But not anymore."

Stephen Hicks explains the underlying Leftist authoritarianism, the environmentalists' anti humanism and statists' collectivism. It was always lurking at the bottom of the pond. As liberalism wanes, soon we shall see the other side of the progressive mindset.

"In a film that will forever change how we see America and its leaders, filmmakers Nicholas Tucker and Lucas Abel take us on an unforgettable journey through a political landscape filled with hypocrites and humbugs. Along the way, they reveal a disturbing national truth: that the two-faced mantra “do as I say, not as I do” has become the unwritten golden rule of some of our most prominent liberal leaders."

I highly recommend the original book "Do As I Say"; read it when it first came out. It's a wonderful thing to point Leftists' hypocrisy out to Liberal friends and watch the sputtering of them defending the indefensible. Also recommend "Intellectuals" by Paul Johnson. He does the same with Marx, Rousseau, Tolstoy, Sartre, Chomsky, Norman Mailer to name a few.
