Take the well-known progressive hack, Markos Moulitsas, for instance. You know him as Kos, from the leftist blog called The Daily Kos. Here's the kind of things he likes to say about people, who merely disagree with his politics:
I mean, this is what the people voted for. And it's one thing to oppose it on policy. It's another thing to use the kind of exterminationist, eliminationist rhetoric that they are using in appealing to violence and that sort of thing.
You can read the article that uses this as a lead-in, it is a piece that provides some retrospection of historical events that have led us to the point we are at, today.
If you want something to seriously chew on, I recommend you read the article and then just let it digest for awhile. As you think about the things said in it, I propose that you begin to wonder why the left is so fearful of people who can articulate their platforms, and why they are their platforms.
I think it is because people like Moulitsas are not able to argue the merits of their stances, without demonizing those who only are offering what they honestly believe to be valid criticism, of the progressive doctrine. Rule #5 of Alinsky's strategic model is based on the use of ridicule and one that is used often, when facing opposition to the actions of those who were foolishly chosen to lead.
But more than anything, see if you really think this article is full hatred. See if you cam find any talk of extermination and elimination of anyone.
I don't see it. All I see is an honest attempt to express what many see as a truth. That's all.
It is true that many are angry right now. But since when did anger ever equate to hatred or rage? How did it become synonymous with racism? These are different entities altogether
No folks, they clamor that the Tea Party is nothing more than a bunch of angry, raging, and even vengeful whackos --- who are bent on an armed revolution and condone the use of violence as a means of advancing a political agenda. But in reality, we are just mad at what we perceive to be an out of control government who have no accountability to their actions. And the left hates us for it.
In this case, the anger is healthy. There is even a verse in the Bible that exhorts its readers to Be ye angry and sin not.
Healthy anger can result in positive action and that's what these people are doing, trying to work toward more productive solutions to real problems that we will all soon be facing.... especially when this latest round of bills come due. It's about keeping freedom alive so that our children and grandchildren can have the same opportunities afforded to us. And it's about promoting responsibility, so they will never need to rely on anyone else, but themselves and their closest friends and family within their chosen support system.
Don't let the Left fool you, this is all it is and it is nothing else.
