Should we expect anything less from the left? Evil will always be evil.

I agree, obviously.

But let this be a lesson to all FReepers. We are better than this.

The times I’ve been ashamed to be a member of FR are those times when *some* here (very few, thankfully) have danced on the graves of fallen liberals.

I repeat: We are better than this. Hopefully we will remember.

“Liberals celebrate death of Andrew Breitbart”

Of course they do—they’ve always been hypocritical—that’s how you know them.

Leftists are not just hypocritical. The whole motivation of the Left--however they feign otherwise rhetorically--has always been found in hatred. They hate the success of others. They hate those who have positive values; those who have a continuing sense of constructive purpose--of building on past achievements, both material & spiritual.

They openly celebrated when Jesse Helms died, a few years back. Their hatred of those who expose them for what they truly are, knows no bounds.

But of course the title, here, misuses the term "Liberals." True Liberals--in the classic sense--find themselves, today, largely allied with us, in the fight to preserve the America the Founders achieved. "Hate crazed Leftists" is the more applicable term, for the scum described.

Not quite like asking for Henry Hyde to be stoned to death ala Baldwin, but still mean spirited.

The Gitmo soccer field proved too much for Andrew. My bet is he was out and about trying to recruit a soccer team of Mussad agents for a special home match at Gitmo.

We will miss you Andrew.

what makes me sick is michael moore, ayers and bill maher are still alive.

this would be like a conservative saying “ thank God Obooba’s Mom is dead so she can’t have anymore American hating kenyan sh!ts.”
but we wouldn’t say that.

Thanks, all very enlightening.

It appears the average age and IQ of those commenting is approximately the same. I figure twenty something.

Lots of ignorance on display as well. Wouldn’t doubt every single one is an Obama supporter. Seems to be a singular lack of knowledge about what constitutes a fascist.

I could go on but what’s the point.

Not to excuse them, but remember in the contemporary leftist mindset, their desires for a secular “egalitarian” utopia are so “pure”, that any other disgusting behavior they engage in such as lying or celebrating the death of a conservative is “morally justified.”

Oh the next Civil War is near.

It will start with either an 0bama win or defeat this November.

If 0bama wins, we the people will have had enough, and will start shedding the chains of tyranny.

If 0bama loses, it will be a purely defensive action by us against the rioting leftists.

Either way the left will lose.

Natasha Yar-Routh has a google+ account in which we learn he/she/it is a Network Engineer for iLAN Systems Inc. in Frazier Park

and a very confused blog.
