Skip to comments.Politics as religion in America [hilarious liberal fears]
Posted on 10/05/2009 2:35:40 AM PDT by Ron C.
For decades now, liberals have been agonizing because conservatives seem to win even when polls show that the public generally disagrees with them. In their postmortems, liberals have placed blame on the way they frame their message, or on the right-wing media drumbeat that drowns out everything else, or on the right's co-opting of the flag, Mom and apple pie, which is designed to make liberals seem like effete, hostile foreign agents.
It's understandable that liberals prefer to think of their subordination as a matter of their own inadequacies or of conservative wiles. Theoretically, you can learn how to improve your message or how to match wits with adversaries, and a lot of liberal hand-wringing has been dedicated to doing just that. But it is becoming increasingly clear that liberals haven't just been succumbing to superior message control, or even to a superior political narrative (conservatives' frontier individualism versus liberals' communitarianism). They are up against something far more intractable and far more difficult to defeat. They are up against religion.

I found it absolutely hilarious - laughing all the way through it... so I had to share the laughs with fellow FReepers!
Liberals complain they are fighting against religion, but what they are really fighting against is basic ethics.
I'm tellin' ya, sometimes I get the feeling that other countries are reading this dribble and laughing their ass off at the breathtaking ignorance in this country. It's like a third of our citizens are acting like North Koreans. Completely oblivious to everything except their dear leader.
OK, let's just stop and ponder this thought for a minute.
Nope, not working
Still not getting there.
ain't gonna happen
I just couldn't grasp it.
To beat your opponent you need to understand them. Problem is, if Liberal understand Conservatives well enough, they’ll become Conservatives, thus Liberals will never have the brain power who understand their enemy
While Conservatives understand Liberals perfectly. We don’t fool ourselves. We know what we’re up against.
The Revolution was preached from the pulpit (a very liberal minister, Jonathan Mayhew fired the first shot). Abolition, woman's sufferage, temperance, the fight against Jim Crow were all intensely religious efforts. I suspect this writer would have had no problem with most of that or with the Rev. William Sloan Coffin and the Berrigan brothers involvement in protesting against the Viet Nam war.
The essence of conservatism is it does look to the culture, to faith to improve society. Law and politics are the last resorts.
A first step, is to stop viewing your enemies as evil. Conservatives believe they have a better idea to help the poor that is different to Liberals
... which is designed to make liberals seem like effete, hostile foreign agents.
"Seem"? I thought they were.
If there is ANY single group who has embraced liberal politics as their "religion" and worship at the altar of the Central-Planning-Big-Gubmint-Nanny-State, it is the left and their approach is that with the zeal and fervor, not usually seen with even the most religious zealot of any faith or denomination--well, perhaps with the exception of the Islamo-Fascist, which btw, the left routinely defends, if not embraces.
One big pile of bovine excrement and I believe the term "projection" comes to mind?
"Seem"? I thought they were.
They were from the git-go too. When Federalists warne of factions, warned of Jacobins and atheists, warned Americans not to side with the French Revolution, they were warning of the danger of liberalism. In fact, the word "democrat" entered the American political lexicon as an accusation, not a label many attached to themselves. Jefferson ran from it and declared himself a republican. Only once they got power in 1800 did liberals start to slowly admit they were "democrats".
It’s classic projection. Leftists seem to honestly believe they treated Bush nicely and are therefore shocked to see even 1/10 the bile they had on Bush thrown at hussein.
See even Neal admits what liberalism is. And IF liberalism really was/is the utopia liberals claim it is then why after owning all three branches of government are they still raging. Liberalism is and always has been a destroying force by depriving individualism from each individual.
Given what Neal has to say about conservatives I can't wait to see how he glorifies the old 'lion' of the senate.
Also important, Democrats would not get anywhere unless they were voted for by constituencies who are NOT AT ALL liberal by nature, but vote Dem for other reasons.
This from the party that worships government as god. Creator of all that is good, the source of all blessings and sustenance. The all seeing, all knowing god that lays low the wicked capitalist and showers the spoils upon the anointed.
So, tell me again why government employees need unions if government as god is their messiah and savior?
“...when in a war, foreign or intestine, the enemies get a final victory, so as, the forces of the Commonwealth keeping the field no longer, there is no further protection of subjects in their loyalty, then is the Commonwealth dissolved, and every man at liberty to protect himself by such courses as his own discretion shall suggest unto him.”
Thomas Hobbes - Leviathan, 1651
that might be because we FLY the flag-not walk on it, we love our Mom, NOT heather has TWO MOMMIES and we eat real apple pie not tofu pie.
Your feelings are well founded.
The sadomasochistic tendencies of the Islamists and treatment of women is rooted in their latent homoeroticism... i.e., ROMAN POLANSKI!!!
(Also note the misogynist attack on Miss California by the Hollyweird gaystapo.)
A cursory psychoanalysis of the masochistic left in the West will find that most of those submissive, feminized males are most often allied with Islam because of such militant, misogynist attitudes in their deviant thinking concerning sexuality. Like Islamics, nothing sets them off more than any criticism at all, even if it is founded in the facts of biological reality.
Like the National Socialists and their minions, the Gaystapo and Islamofaggots want you to submit as well...
