If you can stomach it (and I very nearly could not) you should read through many of the comments on this story. Not the story itself. The comments on the story.
If those comments don’t paint you a picture of the very modern liberal, nothing will. And the picture it paints is very disturbing.
It is clear that in the mind of a modern liberal, the worst insult you can throw at someone is to accuse them of being a Republican or a conservative. The hatred, scorn and disdain they routinely display towards one-half of this country is getting very frightening folks. It is clear that many of them actually believe the nonsense they spout about how the Iraq war started, how Republicans act in a campaign and how conservatives and Republicans think and live. In their minds George W. Bush is the most evil person on the planet. They truly think he is worse than, say, Saddam Hussein, or Fidel Castro.
And these people vote.
This country is in a sad, sad state of affairs. I’m sure there are plenty of Republicans or conservatives who hate liberals, but in all honesty, I do not seen anything comparable to the oozing, blazing hatred of liberals towards conservatives. It is clear to me that the more power these people have, the more danger people like me are in.
As I said, it’s getting very frightening.
