There's piles of videos on ATS of Liberals doing bad things. Why do it? It's just spreading hate. There's a lot of right wingers I don't like, famous
ones, politicians but also ones I've come across online or real life but lets say over the years I've had a thousand negative interactions with right
wingers, it doesn't mean anything. There's millions and millions of you. Is it a fair assessment to dismiss all of you as ______ (fill in the
Why do it? Because I feel compelled to stop liberals from claiming some imaginary moral high ground and remind people that the ones complaining are
often the ones committing the atrocities in the first place. There are dirty hands on both sides of this. But like you with right wingers, I have had
thousands of interactions with liberals that left me feeling disgusted and truly worried about the future of this nation. You ask is it a fair
assessment to dismiss all of us as _______, yet that is exactly what you seem to have done. By the tone of your response you seem quite convinced that
any interactions you may have with "right wingers" are going to be predominantly negative.
One of my best friends has a wife and a daughter, both as liberal as the day is long and dumb as a box of hammers. At a dinner party the daughter,
recently graduated from college, went off on a few people, myself included, in a discussion about the muslim invasion of Europe and the similarities
with what is happening in the US. She stated very clearly that, "...'some people' need to educate themselves on the religion of islam before speaking
in public or they risk looking like fools." In response I started a discussion by inquiring as to the degree of her knowledge on the subject. She
indicated in no uncertain terms that her degree of knowledge undoubtedly surpassed my own. I took her at her word and began with a short dissertation
on the hadith, which is necessary if you intend to have a rational discussion of islam. After about a minute with a deer-in-the-headlights look on her
face she abruptly waved off the conversation as false facts and left, her mother right behind her telling her its going to be ok and she will take her
home if that would make her feel better.
My point is that I do not dislike her or her mother. I vehemently disagree with their opinion of just about everything. But I do not dislike them. My
friend raised his daughter to be strong willed and an independent thinker. She went to college as such but returned convinced that my friend, her
father, was a disgrace to the family and to this nation. He was heartbroken. My heart broke for him when he told me what she had said. She knew
nothing yet she was convinced she was only one who knew anything. Four years of liberal brainwashing took its toll. That family has never been the
same and never will be again. But still, I do not dislike her. More than anything, I pity her.
