What Should We Call Free Republic Liberals
Free Republic | 2/25/07 | Wagglebee

Posted on 02/25/2007 2:46:59 PM PST by wagglebee

We all know about "limosine liberals" and "San Francisco liberals" and "east coast liberals" and "Hollywood liberals" and we all say we are against them. So, why is it that we seem to have a new breed of liberalism that is festering on a conservative forum?

By my calculations it is a small number (only about 15%) of FReepers that seem to be supporting a pro-abortion, pro-homosexual marriage, thrice-married (once to his cousing) gun-grabber for the office of President of the United States of America. And I'll be the first to admit that many of them are supporting Giuliani because they think he is the only Republican who can win. However, what about those FReepers who seem totally comfortable with Rudy's liberalism? In her book Treason, Ann Coulter describes in detail how communists infiltrated the Democrat Party and my fear is that decades from now, someone will describe how liberals infiltrated and destroyed conservativism in the name of pragmatism.

We all know that there are liberals here and I'm pretty certain that they aren't going anywhere. As a conservative, I know that conservativism consists of a belief in a strong national defense, fiscal conservativism and social conservativism, so to call these FReepers conservatives in name only (CINOs) would be incorrect because many of these FReepers don't even claim to be social conservatives. So, my question is this:
WHAT SHOULD WE CALL FREE REPUBLIC LIBERALS?

Why? I'm just asking a very simple question.

Great. Just what this forum needs. More name calling.

Outing them as liberals ticks them off.

"who are you to say who is conservative and who isn't"?

"It's ultra conservatives like you that are destroying the GOP"!

yadda yadda yadda.

Telling the truth about a liberal is offensive conduct to them.

At this point, our top three choices are Mitt Romney (pro abortion, pro gay marriage until about a week ago), John McCain (Captain Queeg on steroids), and Rudolph Giuliani (tough on crime, soft on social issues). Of those three, the man most qualified to be President and wage the War On Terror, is Giuliani. And he can win the general election.

You may call that being a CINO. I call it realistic.

..I would always plead for civility on both sides

But one thing is striking--the condescension towards social conservatives and the not too subtle hints that they are bigoted and willing to hand the White House to Hillary because of their principles...

Except this is a CONSERVATIVE rather than a Republican forum.

Yeah, they don't get that. Every time it gets brought up that the mission statement of the site is to advance a conservative agenda, they like to change the subject.
