Republicans and Conservatives Hate Us For Our freedoms
Edited on Thu Apr-29-04 09:25 AM by Homer12
That's right, they are jealous that the left has the constitutional right to criticize not only the Bush administration, Bush Media Whores, and the GOP, but ourselves as well.

They hate us because we still use our constitutional rights and duties to question our leaders, while they have given up theirs to win at any costs.

The right hates us because they know if they were "ever" to break ranks with the Right-Wing Left hating mind set and question their own actions, that they would be thrown out of the club and treated as a pariah worse than any centrist and left leaning American.

The Hate us, because unlike the 1990's while we were lulled in complacency, we now fight back. Not only do we fight back but, for the most part, we have logic, reason, evidence, and facts on our side.
The hate us because we don't blindly follow our leaders like they have been doing for the past 3.5 years, while they, to be included on the right, have to for fear of being outed for questioning.

They hate us because we use and protect our constitutional freedoms, while they have willingly given up theirs because their agenda and ideology have become more important than the Constitution of the United Sates of America, because the ends-now-justify-the-means.

The revile and hate us because, unlike them, we have not for the sake of backing a leader or an agenda completely have done 180 degree flip-flops on issues (i.e. Privacy against Big Brother/Patriot Act, taking personal responsibility for actions, Government spending/debt, etc...). The hate themselves becuase in order to win they have compramised their morals and ethics.

The Right-Wing in this country hates & scapegoats the center and the left of this country for their own shortcomings as Americans, becuase instead of exercising their rights they have put their heads in the sand while their leaders trash the one document that binds us ALL as Americans.

Simply, They Hate us for using OUR constitutional freedoms.

1. I got to experience that face to face on Sunday
They were so resentful that abortion was legal, that there were so many of us and so few of them, that their arguments were lame you could see the hate in their eyes.

The current administration, the republican congress, members of the the religious right and especially the Christian fundamentalists are engaged in a war. Not a war on terrorism, but a war against the Constitution of the United States. A war to place limitations on the freedoms enjoyed by anyone and everyone who doesn't buy into their particular belief system. They seek to create a theocracy, an american Taliban. Cruel and repressive to all who are different. Everywhere they go they spout their bigotry, ignorance and hatred. They revel in it. Censorship on TV and radio, banning the teaching of science (evolution), denying the rights of gays, advocating the slaughter of the practitioners of Islam, fighting to deny women the right to control their own bodies, right wing lunatics on FOX daily ,shouting and spewing fascist propaganda that would make Goebbels proud.. The list goes on and on. If you can't see that then you haven't been paying attention....or you are one of them.

14. Could be, but...
A war to place limitations on the freedoms enjoyed by anyone and everyone who doesn't buy into their particular belief system.

... the thing of it is that they aren't free to "buy out" of their belief system. And we are still free to not buy in to it.

So... cruel, repressive, or whatever else they might be, there's not a one of them that can make any of us less free in the ways that matter unless we let 'em. No, it won't be "nice."

Although he did not hold the same theological beliefs as those I hold, I am especially impressed and inspired by the example of Bishop Romero. I don't think the "American Taliban" can deal with that sort of freedom.

17. You're right , they can't deal with the freedom,
that's why they are trying to do away with these freedoms. I agree, unless we allow it to happen , it won't. But slowly things are changing for the worse, Most americans, like the frog in the kettle, won't notice or object until it's too late.

20. I'm not so sure I understand
Freedom to reproductive rights and freedom to an open media can be very easily taken away, yet they matter profoundly. Don't tell me that the D&X Ban was trivial.

Conservatives hate freedom and democracy. They have to tell other people what to do.
