I think it is because they believe in Jane Law.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jante_Law

There are ten different rules in the law as defined by Sandemose, but they all express variations on a single theme and are usually referred to as a homogeneous unit: Don’t think you’re anyone special or that you’re better than us.

The ten rules state:

1. Don’t think you’re anything special.
2. Don’t think you’re as good as us.
3. Don’t think you’re smarter than us.
4. Don’t convince yourself that you’re better than us.
5. Don’t think you know more than us.
6. Don’t think you are more important than us.
7. Don’t think you are good at anything.
8. Don’t laugh at us.
9. Don’t think anyone cares about you.
10. Don’t think you can teach us anything.

An eleventh rule recognized in the novel is:

11. Don’t think there’s anything we don’t know about you.

In the book, the Janters who transgress this unwritten ‘law’ are regarded with suspicion and some hostility, as it goes against communal desire in the town to preserve harmony, social stability and uniformity.

Leftists don’t hate the military. They actually love war, death, destruction, chaos, suffering, misery, depression, anarchy, et cetera.

They just hate the US military when it is being used to stomp out Leftist tyranny and oppression.

Great List.
Anything beyond the first (11) stated are probably just going to be subsets of the 11 - but it will be interesting to see if people can come up with others.

I’ll be checking back.

a slight correction -
Liberals hate (Our) military.
They love when Despots and Dictators use their military
(1)especially when it is against us
(2)in the name of social justice in their particular countries - and others.

Brighter minds than mine could shed meaningful insight into “why” they are the way they are. In my opinion, however, much of the reason likely stems from the liberal’s upbringing, which most likely occurred in a household that represented a broken down/non-traditional family — or, at best, a family whose parents had abandoned their spiritual (or at least moral) compass.

In noting the axiom added to #5, “(and have an extremely distorted view of it)”, properly speaking, this should be added to every entry. That is:

1) liberals hate God (and have an extremely distorted view of Him)
2) liberals hate the Constitution (and have an extremely distorted view of it)
3) liberals hate American Exceptionalism (and have an extremely distorted view of it)
4) liberals hate morality (and have a VERY extremely distorted view of it)
5) liberals hate justice (and have an extremely distorted view of it)
6) liberals hate human progress and advancement (and have an extremely distorted view of it)
7) liberals hate personal achievement (and have an extremely distorted view of it)
8) liberals hate opposition (and have an extremely distorted, and bitterly hateful, view of it)
9) liberals hate truth (and have an extremely distorted view of it)
10) liberals hate themselves (neurotic inferiority complex, masked in neurotic megalomania).

By the way,

11) liberals hate deep thinkers (and hate themselves and are shallow)

You have to be shallow if you loathe yourself and your country to not:

A) join the right and acknowledge the manner of your sins
B) drive yourself nuts in your imbalance

The whole list is a bit redundant, and can be summed up as

Liberals hate anything that stands in the way of the creation of an omnicompetent state.

Devil?s advocate or plant?

There's a thirteen year posting history to help you decide. Childish and vacuous vanity threads like this are an embarrassment to FR. The irony of a content free rant about hatefulness is lost on the author.

It's just a manifestation of an emotional fit, enabled by the relative anonymity of the internet. Would you ever see this as a column in any publication? No, because nobody would ever attach their real name to it.

3) liberals hate American Exceptionalism

And they have bumper stickers saying (though they grudgingly use the first world) “God Bless The Rest Of
The World Too”

5) liberals hate justice (and have an extremely distorted view of it)

Though they want “social justice” which I think means
free benefits and money for people who don’t work

9) liberals hate truth
Except for their truth — see 9/11 truthers. They also use the word in the phrase “speaking truth to power” (which,
when the Right does the same thing, is called “Hate speech”
instead)

The above explains why Minn is all upset with you. Rather then debate facts he would rather divert you off topic by whining about your "tone".

Standard leftist playbook tactic #1.

Rule number 1 of political Leftist states: "Never try to debate the issue on the intellectual merits, always attack your political opponent on a personal level to divert them off topic"

Do you personally know any liberals? I do - my state is full of them. They don’t have a mental disorder so much as very different opinions on how to handle policy issues. But they don’t hate God, the Constitution, or the military.

You know, MNJonny, reading the garbage your mommy helps you post here makes it clear that you are one of the dumbest, hate filled pieces of garbage to ever trod the soil, let alone visit FR. A partial list of your intellectual, moral, an physical inadequacies would fill terabytes. If you've ever had a date, at least that's a credit to your willingness to help the blind.

Now, have I just forced you to honestly confront your intellectual shortcomings for the first time in your life or done something else?

Pointing out that a fact-free childish rant that can essentialy be summed up with "I hate those hating liberal poopy butts" is an embarrassment to FR, is not whining about tone. It is whining about content, or the lack thereof.

Any ill thought out public school by product liberal you know, would know this (NOT!):

The Bible definition of “hate” is to love less one than the other...

Example:
“As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated. “ Romans 9:13, old testament passage Malachi 1:4
“If any [man] come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.” Luke 14:26

So since the liberals love humanism over “nation under God”. They hate God as far as I’m concerned

The Bible says it, I believe it, that settles it.

Liberals hate the Constitution since they have demonstrated time and time again, in their minds, it is no longer relevant to their “progressive agenda” mind you.

Example - Article posted in the Washington Times in Aug. 2010:

The Liberal interpretation of the Constitution revealed

In a town hall on July 24, California Congressman Pete Stark gave us a revealing look into the mind of a liberal. He made the following statement regarding the Constitution, “I think that there are very few constitutional limits that would prevent the federal government from rules that could affect your private life.” While his honesty is admirable, this view is deeply unsettling to Americans who believe in the rule of law.

When liberals are asked about their interpretation of the Constitution, they generally are not as truthful as Congressman Stark. They tend to respond with ambiguous rhetoric about a “living Constitution.” The basic idea follows that the Constitution naturally adapts to changing conditions over time. This definition is their way of avoiding the fact that they do not believe in adhering to the Constitution as it is written or pursuing the correct steps for amending it.

The Liberal philosophy uses the “living Constitution” concept to legitimate any usurpation of power from the people. When liberals want to pass a piece of legislation that is not permitted under the Constitution, they spuriously use the General Welfare Clause as their justification. Using this method, they claim that healthcare, a living wage, and even owning a home are constitutional “rights.” This thoroughly distorts the original intent of the Founding Fathers.

Read more at:
http://www.washingtontimes.com/blog/watercooler/2010/aug/5/liberal-interpretation-constitution-revealed/

Conclusion: Quite clearly liberals and “progressives” fundementally speaking, hate the Constitution and have re-interpreted it.

Liberals have demonstrated their disdane for the military, especially under the leadership of any Republican president... do you need me to give examples of that? Remember George W. Bush, Cindy Sheehan, etc...

Also, I don’t know your age, but I am sure you might have heard or remember the 1960’s and the vietnam war?

What leads persons to believe the collective good is better than the individual’s right is plain foolish... Precisely and namely because they are God-given rights...

I’ll give you an example of what I mean regarding individual’s God-given rights...

You see, Christians believe we are saved by confessing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, individually, not collectively. I cannot be saved, becuase my father is a Christian and vice versa. Individuality is freewill, freewill is a God-given right and big government, unequivocally is always inclined to ultimately remove these rights for the benefit of the state.

1) Liberals hate God. Only they are worthy to be considered enlightened and all knowing.
2) Liberals hate the Constitution because it gives people liberty and rights “they” can’t control.
3) Liberals hate American Exceptionalism. Only the French are exceptional / spineless.
4) Liberals hate morality. It limits their repertoire.
5) Liberals hate justice (and have an extremely distorted view of it). Again, it limits their repertoire.
6) Liberals hate human progress and advancement. They would rather be sitting around a fire, wiping their arses with leafs and eating bugs? I think not ……!
7) Liberals hate personal achievement. Collective progress is preferable because they can then spread the credit among themselves or the blame onto others.
8) Liberals “hate” opposition. (“Fear” is a better adjective). They are just “Guilty” of lazy, self-centered logic supporting manipulation of facts.
9) Liberals hate truth. “Reality” contradicts their life views.
10) Liberals hate themselves. They have to stoop so low, just to justify themselves.
11) Liberals hate the Military. They know nothing of the personal fortitude it takes to defend our country. They can’t even defend themselves without consulting with enough like-minded people to develop a common consensus.

Yes... I do know more liberals than I’d like to admit... half my family is liberal and all are Catholic, except myself.

And so many liberals have also had a Catholic upbringing, much like many Jews from Orthodox families grow up to be liberal... It is quite an interesting phenomenon.

I also went college, and met a pleuthora of liberals there and all my college professor were way too liberal.

So do all these liberals, including all of your family members, fit this bill? Are they all immoral, God-hating, America-hating, anti-military, anti-Constitutional, truth-haters? Is that how *they* would describe themselves? Do you hate them?

Because I wouldn’t describe my neighbors and customers this way, no matter how much I may disagree with their politics or religious views. Or does the fact that I can still see the good in them, and consider them to be basically good people, mean that, I, too, am tainted?

I’m not God. I can’t see their souls. I can disagree with them vehemently but I can’t condemn them all with the same absolutism you use.

I’ve been here for almost 10 years. You seem to have no problem telling us long-timers who disagree with you that we are “lib-plants.” Perhaps the problem is with YOU thinking that everybody who doesn’t see it exactly your way is somehow a lib. Who mad you the judge of who is Conservative enough for FR?

You don’t answer my questions and they are perfectly valid. Do you think that the members for your family who are Liberals are immoral, godless, anti-American haters of the truth and the Constitution?
