What is a liberal?(vanity)
Halls | 8/6/06 | Halls

Posted on 08/06/2006 6:01:11 PM PDT by Halls

Ok, I need help. I need a very good Conservative answer as to "what is a liberal?" Someone has asked me what a liberal really is and I need a good answer. If any of my fellow freepers want to give me their opinion of what a liberal is I would be greatful!

What is a liberal? A moonbat, crackpot, America hater, who feels that the UN should be running America, the internal combustion engine is a terrorist and that Islam is a religion of peace..

A Liberal relies on guilt and emotion to inform his world view. Facs are of secondary importance and reality can be manipulated to obtain the desired ends (the ends justify the means).

What is a liberal? It is the last stage before becoming a full blown Marxist.

A Liberal is the embodiment of everything you've ever heard or seen, and in disgust said, "Just Damn..."

My favorite definition is: somebody who doesn't know sh## about sh##.

This has come from careful observation through the years that the more politically knowledgable one is, the greater chance they are a conservative.

It may seem self-defining or circular, but it's true.

Conservatives look at 9/11 and see a chance to fight back.

Liberals look at 9/11 and see an environmental issue.

Someone who believes something is the way it is because they feel that that's the way it should be and doesn't let facts get in the way of their emoting.

Liberals: Godless, valueless, communistic, marxist, baby-killing, America-hating/blaming, insane boneheads.

But that's just my opinion.

I had a boss that once said that liberals and conservatives are both in some way intelligent, except that liberals were incapable of seeing anything other than what was right in front of their face. Conservatives are able to see years and decades down the road. I don't totally agree with this, but I think it's part of it.

My opinion is that liberals are informed by their animal desires. They want what they want, and any logic they apply to their position is merely a justification that allows them to appear civilized. They would throw civilization to the ground if it allowed them to live in a little ideological or physical comfort.

A liberal will never understand foreign policy because they believe in the moral equivalence of all parties. For example, liberals think that communists only have a different form of government and overlook the fact that they oppress their people.

Self dissatisfaction or low self esteem projected on the world under the incorrect unworkable yet intoxicating guise of "helping others" simply through having nice thoughts and opinions.

That and a resentment of white male judeo-christian civilization and unborn babies pretty much sums it up.

Does anyone know a truly happy liberal?

oh yeah....at least down South....a woman who lets her hair go grey early....99% of the time is a liberal....no painted toenails either.

meek husbands....de riguer

Damn this is easy.

Another favorite definition is: somebody who doesn't know how to say "No".

Anything goes, there is no absolute truth, I'm OK, you're OK. You can't stop anybody from doing anything because, hey, he might be right, and I might be wrong. Who am I to say "No"?

Your questioner knows what a liberal is. He is goading you. You shouldn't play along. Tell him to go to hell.

That's my opinion/advice, anyway.

Go and get Ann Coulter's new book "Godless". She sums them up quite well. Then, go buy "How to talk to a Liberal" from her too, then you can communicate with them.

If you want to know what a liberal is read Ann Coulter's book "Godless" it explains everything.
On second thought, start with P.J. O'Rourke's "Parliment of Whores".....

Liberals think that they know how to socially and economically engineer the world. Since, government is the agent of power, they seek government power to create whatever version of utopia. Liberals are frequently
Socialists. Socialists seek for government to tax and then spend the revenue on programs that either try or make people behave the way they want them to. Socialists don't have faith in the free market, they don't mind some free market capitalism (unlike communists), but they want government to direct and manipulate markets. They have little faith in private property.

The difference between a liberal and a communist is that a communist knows what he's doing.

Let me add another thing. All of what I said in #15 are the non-spiritual reasons. I think that some of liberal's ideas are informed by the devil himself. I think the reason they fall prey to such suggestions is for the aforementioned reason; anything for a little more comfort. It's all based on greed.

That's why I constantly fight and argue against them. My mother doesn't understand why I would subject myself to a state of constant frustration in trying to stop liberalism. It's because, to me, politics is just another front in the spiritual war against evil that has been going on since the foundation of the world, and the libs are on the wrong side (sadly, there are quite a few conservatives that are too, but the concentration among libs is very high). AFAIC it's a fight to the finish and there will be no peace or ceasefire until it's over. That's why I will never stop.

Someone who lives in a cocoon, thinks realism is what is portrayed through Hollywood or through the self-professed elitist mindset, is inanely critical of America, is anti-military and believes America is a bully, pro-big government and anti-business, offers little in terms of solutions, believes in quotas, is vapid, negative and sanctimonious.

A liberal is a latte drinking, Volvo driving, sushi eating. freak show on wheels................ok scratch that I drink latte's and that's been done before anyway, Ok I believe they are emotionally unstable people that like to argue a lot and have no facts whatsoever to back up their claims. They ''NEED'' to blame America first for everything wrong with the whole world. IF they lose an election, the other side ''us'' cheated and stole their votes. If they win everythings great ! They hate and despise George Bush and believe Karl Rove and Dick Cheney are the Anti-Christ! They're heroes are Cindy Sheehan and Cynthia Mckinney. That about somes them up!

Conservatives should stop using the term "liberal" to describe leftists. Please use "leftist", or "regressive", so that we can avoid confusion with classical liberals.

You might be a libral if...

You believe that Mikhail Gorbachev deserves more credit for losing the Cold War than Ronald Reagan deserves for winning it.

Your parents gave you an acre of preserved rain forest for your first birthday.

You think that Dan Rather got a raw deal.

You think that the phrase “separation of church and state” is in the Constitution.

Oh I forgot .One of their favorite pet peeves is the ''environment'', of which they claim we ''evil conservatives''are speedily destroying. They like to preach these facts to us from their air conditioned mansions, or their SUV'S, before they take a jet to their next stop to preach to us about how we must conserve energy and ride bikes everywhere!.........AKA ''limousine liberals ''!
