Yeah...i do find that odd crazyewok.
When you think about it though...that saying implies that right-wingers don't give a toss about the suffering of their fellow Human being, and i'm sure that simply isn't the case.
But the implication is there all the same. If i were right wing, i'd be quite offended that Human compassion and the idea of sanctity of life is the exclusive domain of left wing people.

I have trouble believing that the Jews in Iran were offerred money and they didnt take it and move. Obviously they have something on them to keep them there in Iran right?
There are 25,000 Jews living in Iran. When Israel backed a plan to pay Iranian Jewish families $60,000 to settle in Israel, Society of Iranian Jews met the announcement with scorn, issuing this statement: "The identity of Iranian Jews is not tradable for any amount of money. Iranian Jews are among the most ancient Iranians. Iran's Jews love their Iranian identity and their culture, so threats and this immature political enticement will not achieve their aim of wiping out the identity of Iranian Jews."
