Fear And Loathing In America

Since the philosophy of the Left is based on emotion rather than reason, it should surprise no one that their limited grasp of current issues is also based on emotion rather than reason. So it is that they interpret the entire world in terms of mostly three things: Hate, Fear, and Anger.

You oppose the militant homosexuals' mockery of the institution of marriage? It can only because you hate them. It couldn't be because you see how destructive their agenda is to the fabric of our society. It's only because you hate them.

You oppose the election of a woman who is known for her obvious socialist agenda? It can only be because you fear "strong, independent" women. It couldn't possibly be because her socialist agenda is the very antithesis of what this country stands for. It's only because you fear "strong, independent" women.

You oppose the government taking your money and using it to buy the votes of another group of people? That can only be because you're angry about your money being taken from you, not because you oppose the unconstitutional theft of your property. It's only because you're angry about your money being taken away.

And there you have it. No matter how well reasoned your position, no matter how well grounded in moral law, constitutional principles, or even common sense your position, it's all invalidated by virtue of your hate, fear, and anger. That's all there is to it.

What pathetic lives these people must lead, to see that world in such negative terms.

Well said!

I got to thinking ... what about all those 'things' I owe just because I was born "White", Male and accepted Jesus as the Christ and that he is The Son Of God ... which makes me a God fearing American?

I know this is the same old tripe ... but it's in addition to the hate, fear and anger ... "You Owe Me!" could be called YOM!

The False Dichotomy is also popular, and so EASY. Sadly, the spokesmen of the Right are just as liable to use such tactics. Hannity and Medved instantly spring to mind.

Brings to mind the ugly fat women and goatee-bearded, Coke-bottle-glassed, effeminate-voiced "men" in name only I knew in high school and college who wouldn't face reality.
Whenever you countered one of their socialist/collectivist establishment diatribes with facts and reason from the Constitution or Scripture, they either changed the subject and began ranting about some other talking point, or accused what you said of being "negative, bigoted, mean-spirited, narrow-minded, homophobic" blah-blah.
The ability of the insane to rationalize deceit and excuse is amazing - in a strictly disgusting way - to witness! Sadly, such behavior is symptomatic of a seared conscience and a reprobate mind.

Or rampant stupidity.

Of course, liberals are people who never grew up.
