    The Left Hates Conservatives
    Tuesday, July 27, 2010

    1. "Perhaps the most telling of the recent revelations of the liberal/left Journolist, a list consisting of about 400 major liberal/left journalists, is the depth of their hatred of conservatives…as exemplified by the e-mail from an NPR reporter expressing her wish to personally see Rush Limbaugh die a painful death -- and the apparent absence of any objection from the other liberal journalists.

    2. Every one of us on the right has seen this hatred…[by]…mainstream elite liberal journalists. There is simply nothing analogous among elite conservative journalists. Yes, nearly all conservatives believe that the left is leading America to ruin. But while there is plenty of conservative anger over this fact, there is little or nothing on the right to match the left's hatred of conservative individuals.

    3. From Karl Marx to today, the Left has always hated people on the Right, not merely differed or been angry with them. Why?

    a. First, the left thinks the right is evil. Examples are innumerable. For example, Howard Dean, the former head of the Democratic Party said, "In contradistinction to the Republicans ... (Democrats) don't believe kids ought to go to bed hungry at night." Or take Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., who, among many similar comments, said, "I want to say a few words about what it means to be a Democrat. It's very simple: We have a conscience."

    b. Second, when you don't confront real evil, you hate those who do. Whether out of guilt over their own cowardice or fear that the one who confronted the bully would provoke the bully to lash out more, those who refuse to confront the bully often resent the one who does. During the 1980s, the left expressed far more hatred of Ronald Reagan than of Soviet Communist dictator Leonid Brezhnev. And, when Reagan labeled the Soviet Union an "evil empire," the liberal world was enraged ... at Reagan. Today, the left has similar contempt for those who take a hard line on Islamic terror. The liberal and leftist media routinely place quote marks around the words War on Terror…the Obama administration has actually forbidden use of the term "Islamic terror." The real enemies the Democratic administration is prepared to name are the Republican Party, tea parties, Fox News and talk radio.

    c. Third, the left's utopian vision is prevented only by the right. From its inception, leftism has been a secular utopian religion….imagining a utopian future. There will be no poor, no war, no conflict, no inequality. That future is only a few more government programs away from reality. And who stands in the way of such perfection? Conservatives.

    4. How could a utopian not hate a conservative? The right, with its beliefs in a strong military; in individuals, not the state; taking care of themselves, their families and their neighbors; and in punishing criminals, is the anti-Love, a figure as reviled on the left as the antichrist is to Christians. The right, with its beliefs in a strong military; in individuals, not the state; taking care of themselves, their families and their neighbors; and in punishing criminals, is the anti-Love, a figure as reviled on the left as the antichrist is to Christians.

    a. This hatred will only increase if the left feels its programs to greatly increase the size of the government are in any way threatened in the forthcoming elections."

    If it gives you comfort to demonize the other side of the aisle, so be it.

    Good grief. How can anyone write this sort of drivel with a straight face?

    C'mon, Political Chic.......both sides have had angry words for the other, and neither one has a solid claim to the moral high ground.

    Political CHic is a poster on a website that has no more than 100 people at a time reading it.

    Our Presdsident is followed by every news agancy and every word he speaks is broadcast nationally.

    And you certainly can not deny that he is continually demonizing the other side of the aisle.

    Can you recall any other President that has done this so frequently in the past 40 years?

    The right criticizes the left for the grandiose ideas......for their thought process.

    The left tends to criticize the CHARACTER of the right....not the thinking of the right.

    There is a difference. A BIG difference.

    Sky-D, can you be serious?

    After the Journolist scandal, and numerous examples of the left using ad hominems and demonization...

    I no longer wish to convert the left, merely to expose same.

    Somehow, by your lights, indicating the iniquity is the same as effectuating it.
