The Party of Hatred
Dennis Prager had an insight filled column last week entitled "Who hates the other more: liberals or conservatives?" It's not that difficult a question. Just read some of the email that Michelle Malkin has gotten this week, or read the comment section at the Daily Kos and you will get a good idea just who is filled with hatred toward the other. Even the WaPo picked up on the meme:
""I'm insane with rage and grief." says one liberal blogger in the article.
"Laura Bush Talks; No One Gives a [expletive]," writes another.
"I feel like I'm being molested everytime I hear his voice," writes a quoted poster on the Daily Kos while watching one of the President's news conferences.
Now I can certainly understand having a difference of opinion with a politician. I would not ever expect anyone to agree with everything that I ever had to say and I would certainly never denigrate someone who did disagree with me. That is the difference between most conservatives and the Daily Kos left. If you disagree with me, I would politely listen to your reasoning, offer up a defense of my views and leave it at that. If you disagree with one of the angry left, you are denounced as imbicilic, moronic or retarded! The level of discourse on these left leaning blogs is filled with explitives and slams at Republicans as a whole. Which is totally different than conservative leaning blogs. We may disagree with a policy statement, but we (by and large) do not launch the same level of personal attacks that comes out of the left at large. Which is a pity...what we need is to raise the level of discourse but as long as the DU and Kos Kidz are running the party, discourse with the Democrats is a thing of the past.
Come on - this is supposed to be a civilized country. How about we start acting like it?
