Even before President Trumps election, hatred had begun to emerge on the American leftcounterintuitively, as an assertion of guilelessness and moral superiority. At the Womens March in Washington the weekend after Mr. Trumps inauguration, the pop star Madonna said, I have thought an awful lot of blowing up the White House. Here hatred was a vanity, a braggadocio meant to signal her innocence of the sort of evil that, in her mind, the White House represented. (She later said the comment was taken wildly out of context.)
For many on the left a hateful anti-Americanism has become a self-congratulatory lifestyle. America was never that great, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently said. For radical groups like Black Lives Matter, hatred of America is a theme of identity, a display of racial pride.
For other leftists, hate is a license. Conservative speakers can be shouted down, even assaulted, on university campuses. Republican officials can be harassed in restaurants, in the street, in front of their homes. Certain leaders of the leftRep. Maxine Waters comes to mindare self-appointed practitioners of hate, urging their followers to think of hatred as power itself.
How did the American leftconceived to bring more compassion and justice to the worldbecome so given to hate? It began in the 1960s, when America finally accepted that slavery and segregation were profound moral failings. That acceptance changed America forever. It imposed a new moral imperative: America would have to show itself redeemed of these immoralities in order to stand as a legitimate democracy.

They hate because they’ve been brainwashed, and because the left is a cult.
Its self hate they know we are right they just cant come to the conclusion they and their thinking is just so wrong but to admit it it is just to much for their fragile souls to deal with They have to keep the lie going
They hate because without hate they have nothing. I am sure everyone here has had occasion to debate a leftist over some issue or another. Once confronted with indisputable facts the leftist is out of counter argument and must revert to something.
Hate is a very powerful emotion and unfortunately too many of our leaders crumble into silence when faced with leftist hate.
Socialism is naiveté towards government rationalized by cynicism towards society.
Cynicism is an antonym for faith. Without faith, it is impossible to please God.
What else would you expect but hatred to come out of that?
For the American left today, the indulgence in hate is a death rattle.
Must subscribe to read full article. Not.
If voter fools put them back in power they’ll kill everyone
Liberalism is their god. They have no other —they have no faith in anything other than the state. So...when their “god” is in fear of loss or change, they go crazy. They have violated the first Commandment by having another god before Jehovah....and their minds and hearts are in darkness and turmoil.
Because they’re basically miserable people, full of self hate.
Idiot woman doesn’t even understand if this was Nazi Germany she would have been dragged off the street by the citizens and beaten to death!
If you look at an election results map for the country, or for an individual state, you'll see that the more rural an area is, the more conservative it is (with rare exceptions like Indian reservations, for example).
Liberals are concentrated in cities. They have the highest standard of living in the history of mankind and don't have to work very hard for it at all.
They're hateful because despite all of this, it really sucks to live the way they do.
Nothing at all wrong with hate. Dont mistake the evil hatred of righteousness with the righteous hatred of evil.
I proudly hate leftists, any rational man should too.
They are consumed by their animal inatincts.
My husband and I were talking about this very thing earlier. We cannot see, either, how THEY don’t see that the ideals they are consumed with are so totalitarian in nature.
They want love and compassion, yet they continue to show hate and intolerance for anyone who doesn’t think like they do. They want freedom of speech, yet they seek to control what we all think and say.
They’ve lost their individuality and it’s just mind-boggling how they can’t see it.
It’s group-think and mob-rule at it’s finest...”democracy” run rampant...and yes, a cult.
Eggs actly. Like food and water and air for them. They seem to live for it. Comically I’ve seen some YUGE Libs Facebook page with the “NO HATE” frame around their profile pic while they spew tons of nastiness.
That is SO Orwellian.
