The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.
I was a liberal for a very long time. I'm now more aligned with Libertarianism. I will approach this from that perspective. And I'll see if
my old liberal ideology holds up to these questions.
1) Homosexuality and Muslims - Devote Muslims kill homosexuals for being homosexual (fact). Yet, liberals support both the Homosexual agenda
in America as well as Muslim Sharia Law. What gives?
Devout Christians kill homosexuals for being homosexuals. These two issues aren't really even linked. Because I'm for people practicing their
religion (regardless of my own personal beliefs) does not mean that I am also for killing the gays.
I don't like religion being shoved down my throat, but I also would never attempt to prevent somebody from living the way they wanted. As long as
they weren't infringing on the rights of others.
2) Racism – (Hot topic these days…I know…I will tread lightly) It seems liberals keep the term “racists” alive. Why are vocal black
democrats given praise by the left (Sharpton, Jackson, Rangel, Shiela Jackson Lee, etc) while vocal black conservatives (Clarence Thomas, Alan West,
Herman Cain, etc) called names by the left?
Personally, I think that the media on both sides, left & right are completely corrupt, work together to continue their fight (see Coke Vs Pepsi) for
ratings and the minds of Americans.
Remember that not only other nations are lead by extremists, while the moderate majority sits silently watching, being pandered to and really in the
end of it all some of the most enslaved people on the planet.
North America is also a place where this occurs. I agree that not participating in racism and encouraging it by inciting racial hatred like they've
done is wrong. And I would have said the same thing whether or not it was a left pundit or a right one.
Also, why do liberals continue to promote social programs that enslave blacks at poverty level? Left policies have NEVER led to black prosperity
(Chicago, Detroit, ALL of California, etc are good examples) yet they get the majority of the black vote. What does the left offer that should inspire
black Americans and keep their vote? I think the tide is turning, by the way. This video is a good illustration of what I’ve said.
Yup, blacks are disproportionately more poor than whites, have fewer opportunities and the list goes on. But do you really think that it was the
failure of one particular side of a political spectrum that created this problem?
Or the failure of a nation to support itself? Successful social programs exist, and do not cause the huge problems we see today, if they are properly
managed, privately run ( not funded) and held accountable for their activities and balance sheets.
I don't know why blacks vote either way honestly. If they are part of the left vs right game then it's just party politics.
3) Pro Women yet Anti Conservative Women – Liberals say they’re for women’s rights yet they destroyed Sarah Palin and her family in 2008.
Liberals love Hillary but what did they have to say about Condoleezza?? Have liberals ever denounced all of the chauvinist remarks about Bachman?
Do you expect the entire liberal movement to apologize for criticizing the merits of Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachman?
That's kind of much isn't it? Are we really going to have them all represented by the pundits and comedians that used them to get a laugh?
Honestly though, you have to admit that Sarah put her foot in her mouth and said some pretty non nonsensical things. Like all the time, for
And Michelle thought she had to come out publicly as being not a witch. I don't see how Conservatives don't see the humor in that.
4) Pro Abortion yet Anti-Death Penalty – Need I say more on this issue?
I'm personal against abortion. However I do not have the right to force that belief on to another. Religious beliefs or not. Every person has a
right to make their own decisions about something that personal.
Let them be judged in the afterlife if that's what you believe. Back to prisoners. I don't really think Capital punishment is in any way necessary
in proper 21st century society. We should not imprison non violent offenders.
Perfectly capable, good citizens who go to jail and cost society thousands of dollars each are kept out of the workforce and drain the tax coffers.
So imo the whole thing needs to be redone.
I don't think your questions will properly gauge the ideas and mentality of liberals, or any ideology. They do not explore the underlying and real
issue behind why these problems exist.
Therefore, nu-intentionally, it only serves to compound the problem of us being too busy trying to kill ourselves than trying to free ourselves.
