Sometimes I listen to them on my lunch break. I dont know why, it is like sucking air into a cavity to see if it still hurts. But they always preach against the "man" who isnt completely consumed with beer, football, and hitting his wife when she messes up the evening turkey.

This isnt just on RW talk radio. It is also on ESPN radio. They make fun of what they call the ".edu guy." Meaning someone who works in an academic profession instead of, I dont know, hitting their wives all day long.

So you are 100% correct. There is a definite cultural mindset that anything other than brute, unadulterated force is weak, liberal, and undesirable. Once I said that i like manatees in front of some Republican friends. I was made fun of because the manatee isnt violent enough and doesnt have a built in weapon. The guy who made fun of me is a librarian.....I teach classes on military history. Yet I was not the "true man."
