Liberal Prejudice

One does not need to be a Neoconservative Red necked pecker wood cracker who puts burning crosses on peoples lawns while quoting the Bible to be prejudiced. One can be a mild mannered dope smoking ,gay loving, tree hugging lunatic Lefter and still be prejudiced. Prejudice comes in many forms, one can even be prejudiced against Right Wing Republican fanatics...for instance just take a look at how the Left starts to foam at the mouth like rabid dogs when the name Sarah Palin, George Bush or Dick Cheney are mentioned.

Then there is the not so obvious type of prejudice. That of being condescending with a nose up in the up in the air kind of superiority of being holier than thou..I wouldn't want to be one of those poor slobs..mentality It is usually this type that is the most despicable because they yell the loudest when throwing that first stone at someone who they think is being prejudiced, while they don't even recognize that they are being "that way" themselves. And when they are confronted with their own malevolence they are shocked and want to avoid the issue at all cost..

No doubt true.

Liberal prejudice is more subtle. Their desire to help racial minorities is often spurred on by a paternalistic attitude. Of course they want to open their hearts and wallets (or other peoples wallets) and help......as long as 'those' people don't live in their neighborhood or send their children to the local school.

Some of them Liberals even look down their noses and say they wouldn't want to live like those people....how could they live like that..What make those Liberals holier than thou in thinking that their shyte is any better? Maybe it is just for the grace of God that they are born in the USA..with a silver spoon stuck in their mouths..

However sooner of later it all catches up to them and then they can't run nor hide cause they are dancin dancin with MR D. Then they should realize that it just ain't gona be so easy to get away and they should learn to play politics or have their souls laid to waste.

I see rude and angry every day. I think most people are capable of it, but some feel entitled to it. I think that some in the Democratic Party decided to use some plays from the Republican playbook during the Bush 2 administration, and now the left is starting to look a lot more like the right.

Of course there have been militant left wingers for a long while, and then there are those who really hate the Right, because they think the Right is destroying the world, and they may have some actual point there behind the bitterness.

Then there are those people who are really nasty about smokers ''invading'' their space. Really tiresome.


To the point. I ''ahem'' am the meanest, rudest person I know. Every day I have to look in the mirror, and decide who I am going to be. For some people, being rude and angry is an entitlement, or even a fun hobby. For me it is no longer an option. I have to work t it every day, and most of you cusses here are just wussies compared to the nut job I know I am.

What did you want me to say ? That it was all about other people ?

An interesting perspective. Does this mean that you hold those that have earned what they have in higher esteem?

Gee Tabs - Palin, Bush or Chaney doesn't fit your Neo con description. I don't know many gay loving, tree hugging, dope smoking lunatics either. Aren't there a few conservatives that are gay or dope smokers?

You my friend come off as an elitist: visonary, all knowing, above all else. Your elitisism comes off as racist. This post is a good example of using a broad paint brush to paint what is a conservative or liberal. Your comments offend me and to those who consider themselves either a conservative or liberal. Just simply branding /labeling a person one of the other is racism.

I was sterotyped as a kid and it is the worst feeling you could ever experience.

Sorry for the rant.

I've never heard of conservatives shouting down a liberal speaker at a college. The reverse seems to be an entitlement.

No, but it helps.

"for instance just take a look at how the Left starts to foam at the mouth like rabid dogs when the name Sarah Palin, George Bush or Dick Cheney are mentioned. "

Actually green vomit comes out our noses and we stick pins in our eyes.

Thank you. It requires a lot of give and take, balance to support the concept.

Agreed. Conservatives tend to be more honest, liberals tend to lie and cover up things like the fact that they are actually MORE prejudiced than conservatives.

Conservatives believe that EVERYONE is capable of success if they try hard enough, regardless of race etc.

liberals say that SOME races and SOME classes and SOME groups of people simply cannot succeed, they are inferior and cannot make it on their own, and NEED the gubmint's help to survive.

It isn't a conservative thought per se, though I am quite conservative on many issues.

There is no trick. My approval is irrelevant in 99.9% of circumstances.

Please reread my post without an external layer of narrative added on top. It acts as a filter and changes the original philosophy, narrowing it.

I've held this philosophy for over 25 years, perhaps longer. It has evolved of course and unfortunately only grown more complex, therefore less elegant. It has become my personal "Theory of Everything."

I am not sure if you want a real explanation, it's a busy day for me, we're shipping Spring to our customers.
