Why Are Liberals still Angry?
Pajamas Media ^ | 15 Sep 2009 | Frank Fleming

Posted on 09/17/2009 12:53:35 PM PDT by Admiral_Zeon

The liberals were crazy angry while George W. Bush was president. Part of it was that for a time after 9/11, they were made completely irrelevant — when people are dying, who is going to listen to a liberal?

But another part of it is that it’s much easier to hate a person than to hate a concept — like conservatism. So they were able to channel all their hate into President Bush. And they were jumping-around-pooh-flinging-biting-each-other angry. I think a number of conservatives were secretly looking forward to the Obama presidency in hopes that liberals might just calm down a little. Maybe they’d even consider supporting the troops in their war efforts for a change. At least, maybe they would be a bit less angry.

Big miscalculation.

Now conservatives have more reason to be angry these days, with liberals in charge and all the spending and government takeovers. But with Democrats having complete control of the government, you’d think liberals could be dismissive of conservatives and be calm themselves. But no, they’re still crazy angry. Maybe even angrier than before. Biting-fingers-off angry. They’re screeching about how all the people opposed to Obama are racists and neo-Nazis and stupid, and they’re using sexual slurs against protesters and boycotting everyone who disagrees with them. They’re still nuts, but why?

Because hate is all they know and they only seek the power to control for the purpose of punishment.

If you lived in a world where you constantly had to battle reality from encroaching on your fantasy world, had every policy and value you hold be routinely disproved, and generally made all those around you unhappy, how else would you feel?

Hypocrisy and shamelessness are two prerequisites for being a lib. Many libs are perpetually angry because they realize that they cannot tell the truth and win an argument. Lying 24/7 is quite wearing and causes anger.

Because for the first time in years, the conservatives are fighting back.... in a big way (no thanks to our representatives, with the exception of a few brave souls). Our voices are being heard thanks to sites like this, talk radio and Fox News (most of the time).

For the same reason blacks are. They've been fed so much anti-American,
anti-whitey crap over the last 30-40 years, they believe it.

Because at its heart, modern liberalism is profoundly misanthropic, not withstanding its public veneer of philanthropy.

Their concept of conservatism was way off base, Bush was real good at big government. Everytime he spouted about "compassionate conservative" was code for "I like big government!"

They don't seem to care about ideology as much as party affiliation, it's about power and money for them.

Because for a liberal, anger is the whole point. Angry liberals are victims, and victims deserve compassion, non-responsibility and other peoples money.

(Angry conservatives, though, are abusive racist terrorists with mental and emotional problems who deserve scorn, punishment and death. Get it straight.)

Which brings us to today's word: ESTROGEN.

Most liberals are very neurotic.
The psychological projections and transference come from troubled childhoods
and sexual issues. Always looking for a male authority figure to blame.

The libs thought that they would get everything they wanted with 0bama and a dem congress in power. They are now starting to realize that they were wrong. Frustration leads to aggression. The psychologists call it “frustration-aggression” theory.

They aren’t in TOTAL control, yet.

The oppoasition has to be beaten down before they’ll feel better, and not simply agreeing with them. Those who fight them must agree against their will, or the same stimulation isn’t derived.

"...Why Are Liberals still Angry?..."

Because the "involved" ones aren't actually "Liberals" at all. Not in the classic sense. They are radicals, and the core tenet of the radical left is anger. It's how they bond.

The uninvolved ones, the unknowingly leftist, Democrat drone flock-members who reflexively pull the "D" lever, are usually just generally people who are unhappy in life anyway.

Their lives suck because they forgot to go to college, or to actually study when they got there, or they got stoned and turned forty before they remembered to get a job, or mommy didn't breastfeed them long enough, or any combination of a million other stupid reasons one can pick to be a pathetic loser and resent society.

As long as they can focus that angst outward, they don't have to face their own shortcomings.

They see in the success of others something they want, but they know they neither deserve or will ever attain, so their petulant envy manifests as anger at anyone but themselves.

They're all either in therapy, giving therapy, or want therapy.

Liberals know what they are doing -- back in the 70s mom and dad bailed them out as hippies. Now government is to bail out everyone. It's only fair to a liberal. What's also fair is that they always get their way because they were spoiled by mom and dad who fought WWII for them. WWII and the cold war were fought so liberals can enjoy the freedom to grow up and elect/become socialists and communists -- the enemies their parents fought. Liberals are playing these roles because they think it is noble and just, but it is just PLAY: they really don't want to part with their money... maybe other peoples money but not their own money.

Liberal are also "cool" because they grew up being cool hippies with mom and dad as uncool. They can't become uncool like mom and dad. No way. When mom and dad is feeding then you think about how cool you are -- if you are not fed for a couple of days coolness is not important. TV is important to liberals because they get their coolness from watch a cool media.

Marshal McLuhan did thing of TV as a cool media in not quite the same way. But cool it is for the generation raised on superfly junk.

Hayek refers to those who support individual liberty as “liberals”.

The “liberals” of today are nothing of the sort, they are group think collectivists.

OK...that's the liberals' excuse.

So what's the excuse from conservatives who hated (hate) Bush?

The heart of liberalism is that people don’t have all they want or need, therefore someone must be purposefully preventing them from having it.

I think “hate” is used almost exclusively on the left in mainstream politics these days, and I also think it is used to control people (weak minded types) by those in leadership roles on the left. Bush was hated with such energy that it suggests the limits of sanity are breached.

Some people actually did expect the atmosphere to calm after a big “O” win - since the press would no longer be obligated to view every story as a pending disaster due to Bush. But that was indeed shortsighted as every story IS a pending disaster (ultimately due to Bush/Cheney/47% of the citizens not calling themselves Democrats, etc.) that needs a government takeover and reeducation camps or at least reeducation addresses to congress.
Wouldn’t it be great if instead of crying “YOU LIE!” the representative called out “Wolverines!”?

Actually, I disagree. What bothers me most about liberals is that the things they hated under Bush are okay now. Recession is no big deal if Obama is president. War in Afghanistan? Oh, it’s CUTE when Obama does it. Bombings in Iraq? Hey, let’s not dwell on it, let’s think about something pleasant, like Michelle’s new dress or the kids’ new dog! All their principles have melted away and they are just pleased to look at their pretty, shiny new Prezzy.

obama is not a liberal. He is a commie who is not only pushing totalitarian commie policies, but selling us out to the muslims.

If the liberals want a good place to direct their anger, let them attack commies and muslims. (After all, plenty of old-style liberals like JFK were anti-communist.) Conservatives would be very happy with that arrangement.
