    Little Green Footballs - Why I Parted Ways With The Right

    Why I Parted Ways With The Right
    Opinion | Mon, Nov 30, 2009 at 6:49:45 pm PST

    1. Support for fascists, both in America (see: Pat Buchanan, Robert Stacy McCain, etc.) and in Europe (see: Vlaams Belang, BNP, SIOE, Pat Buchanan, etc.)

    2. Support for bigotry, hatred, and white supremacism (see: Pat Buchanan, Ann Coulter, Robert Stacy McCain, Lew Rockwell, etc.)

    3. Support for throwing women back into the Dark Ages, and general religious fanaticism (see: Operation Rescue, anti-abortion groups, James Dobson, Pat Robertson, Tony Perkins, the entire religious right, etc.)

    4. Support for anti-science bad craziness (see: creationism, climate change denialism, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, James Inhofe, etc.)

    5. Support for homophobic bigotry (see: Sarah Palin, Dobson, the entire religious right, etc.)

    6. Support for anti-government lunacy (see: tea parties, militias, Fox News, Glenn Beck, etc.)

    7. Support for conspiracy theories and hate speech (see: Alex Jones, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Birthers, creationists, climate deniers, etc.)

    8. A right-wing blogosphere that is almost universally dominated by raging hate speech (see: Hot Air, Free Republic, Ace of Spades, etc.)

    9. Anti-Islamic bigotry that goes far beyond simply criticizing radical Islam, into support for fascism, violence, and genocide (see: Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, etc.)

    10. Hatred for President Obama that goes far beyond simply criticizing his policies, into racism, hate speech, and bizarre conspiracy theories (see: witch doctor pictures, tea parties, Birthers, Michelle Malkin, Fox News, World Net Daily, Newsmax, and every other right wing source)

    And much, much more. The American right wing has gone off the rails, into the bushes, and off the cliff.

    I wonÂ’t be going over the cliff with them.

    please see above and add to the list:

    The most unintelligent, ad hom, bumper-sticker-mentality rhetoric

    I swear, it makes me think that if people of THIS caliber support something, there MUST be something wrong with it.

    Whatever happened to the George Wills and William F. Buckley's carrying the intellectual burden of the case for conservatism. They've been replaced by who? Charles Krauthammer, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulture, Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann ????????

    Seriously - how can you take them seriously.

    I notice there was no signator to the ad homenim strawman piece of shit in the OP.

    Looks more like it was written by some hack at Daily Kos or HuffnPuff..

    The rightwing viral emails I get are simply amazingly disgusting.

    I am amazed that supposedly intelligent people would generate and distribute such things with such enthuiasm.

    I get them becuase of past coworkers and I did not discuss politics at work.
    They apparently assumed I was a rightwingnut since I was an ok guy.

    You must not be on the e-mail list for Randi Rhodes or watch Keith Olberdouche.

    THAT IS SO TRUE! It is absolutely astounding. How can you take these people seriously?

    It's like so many of them have just decided that life is BETTER without a brain. There are some refreshing exceptions - but no where near as many as their used to be. People who are about 25 years old or younger simply have no clue that intellectual conservatism is not an oxymoron.
