So I'm driving on I-95 today when I see a car with a bumper sticker that
reads, "There are Americans and then there are liberals." What the fuck is that supposed to mean??? Yes, they had a W sticker on their mini-van. Yes, I flipped them off as I roared past them with my K/E bumper sticker and my bumper sticker that says, "If you're not outraged, you aren't paying attention."

1. That my friend is the product of hate radio
ironic since Jefferson and the rest of the boys WERE liberals. These folks do not realize that what they hate are the very LIBERAL principles that this country was founded upon

4. That would make a great bumper sticker....
Liberal Values:
What America Was Founded On

Liberal Values: Real Freedom

Real Americans are Liberals, etc.

7. or a sticker that says
If the founding fathers were conservative,
we'd still be subjects of the British Crown.

9. Hate Radio?? Surely you jest... okay okay okay.... I was thinking... Lush
Limbaugh as the majestic creature in Star Trek that appeared when the children chanted to summon him.... sort of looked like a king...

Lush reminds me of what that entity represented for the children who knew no better.

So it goes with hate radio listeners. Rush has done more damage to this country than most armies ever could... and it is permitted unabated.

This is the antithesis to hate radio... including exposes on Mr. Lush himself...

I would rather see Groucho, Chico, Harpo and Zeppo in the White House than Bush, Cheney,Rove and Rumsfeld, Really.

ABC, CNN, CBS, Fox News, NBC and The Associated Press sued Ohio Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell over a policy that would prevent exit polling within 100 feet of a voting place.

5. I'm old enough to remember
"Better Dead than Red" and other little ditties from the fascist past.

See, those of you who are young think that this is the first time we've faced these cocksuckers - but it's not. Believe it or not, there was more fear back in the McCarthy days (That's Joe, not the poet McCarthy). Back then, you were afraid that the S.O.B. who lived down the street who didn't like you could call the FBI or the Senate or someone and have you lose your job, lose your family, and even lose the membership in your own house of worship. No one would speak to you for fear of being labeled a Commie. That's what Nixon cut his teeth on - and THAT'S why everyone hated Nixon. Not so much for his Presidency, but what he'd done before that to Helen gahagan Douglas and many many others.

Difference today is that we have many lines of communication open now and we are apparently less afraid but in fact really more vulnerable to all kinds of charges of sedition and anti-Americanism. We're tracked in a way that would make it impossible to defend yourself against a kangaroo court with all the posts you make, the books you buy on charge cards, the telcons you make which are probably recorded somewhere, the video cameras running everywhere.

Just so you know: In the old days, there were these signs which the LBJ campaign had put up on telephone polls - big wooden signs which read: LBJ for the USA. The Goldwater people put over the words USA, the phrase: moral decay. This has been a long time coming, it's gonna be a long time gone. (CSNY)

I'm old but I ain't that old!

23. I know. We had the first television set on the block
so that my mother could watch the McCarthy hearings, white knuckled and terrified. She, like many others, had a brief flirtation with the Communist Party in the 30s, when they were the only ones standing up to Hitler. She, like most others, deserted it when the truth about where Stalin was really at came out. She was still terrified that her youthful fling would land her in prison.

This is one of my earliest childhood memories. Yes, I knew then and know now what these people are, and yes, I know it will take more than facts to throw them out of power.

They seem to be sowing the seeds of their own destruction. I'll stand aside until the crops come up...

6. The scariest sticker ever
I was on 128 outside of Boston and was passed by a late-model black van with heavily tinted windows and a hand-made sticker that read, "The ACLU is the REAL enemy!!"

Brrr.

24. Typical.
We all hate the ACLU and the evil trial lawyers until we actually need one.

The ACLU is one of the only orgnizations whose primary goal is keeping our government honest.

8. Okay...we need Big...
"LIBERAL" BUMPERSTICKERS!

I'll guess they listen to that criminal oxyrush, too.

We should have bumperstickers that say .."I'm a Liberal..I don't care what the felon oxyrush says!"

10. Haven't seen that one yet, but I can see myself doing the same thing you
did. I just told some stupid b*tch yesterday that if it wasn't for us liberals there wouldn't be the week-end, 40 hr. week, overtime pay, vacation time, sick time with pay etc.... Then she gave me that deer eye look. You know the one with the headlights in the eyes. Then I said Yes Virginia there is a Santa Clause its us Liberals that give the good stuff away for the people. :)

which you just mentioned. It'd serve them right - sanctimonious idiots. Just wait until their kid is drafted for desert duty in Iraq or Iran...you like Korean food?

Rmember what Ian Fleming wrote about the Koreans: paraphrasing - the Japanese utilized them for their concentration and prison camps because they were truly evil.

20. You see I try and shut these people up fast at work. I drive a city bus
here in Portland Or. and I just don't want a big huge fight breaking out on my bus. People here are so, so, so, pissed you can feel it in the air. Kerry lawn signs are still up in a lot of places and the guy up the street from me just had his house egged cause of Bush sign.

15. Let me tell you, I saw red when I saw that bumper sticker today.
He had another one on the other side that I couldn't make out (I was in a hurry to pass him so he'd have to read MY bumperstickers). I'm sure it was equally obnoxious.

25. How long before they tell you that you aren't human?
When they need your body parts to keep some old bastard alive, yet won't fund stem cell...

When they strap you in the electric chair or the lethal injection gurney....

Those bums think that they know best, and we, who are genuinely compassionate, are lower than mold spores.

Well, mold is a funny thing--it can spread, and spread, and spread, and tear down the house!!

I guess we just have to be like mold, and do our best work!

17. They have made bigotry socially acceptable??
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Fight the language and acceptable language of so called "Talk Radio".
We need to call them what they are and take off the socially respectable facade they wear so we can delegitimize the talk they spew.

Edited on Sun Nov-14-04 03:35 PM by zulchzulu
They want you to flip them off so they can call Rush and say what happened.

What I've done is have a small American flag at the ready when driving and if someone looks at me funny after seeing my "liberal" bumperstickers, I wave the flag at them and make a funny face.

That confuses the shit out of them.

Edited on Sun Nov-14-04 03:43 PM by scmirage
I also have smaller stickers of the US Flag, the SC State Flag, and the USC Gamecocks logo on my rear bumper. To further add to the confusion, I was driving a luxury sedan so at the very least that ought to have pissed him off--a liberal with money.

Edited on Sun Nov-14-04 08:45 PM by Tab
"Liberals: America's Cancer"

It also had some political party stickers on them - needless to say they weren't for Kerry.

You know, I was in an email exchange with someone and it started picking up some disconcerting undertones. He was saying "You know, I would go fight for your right to speech" or something to protest the war, I forget the exact phrasing, but the implication was that he would fight for me and my rights, but he thought I wouldn't fight for him and his rights, and that I was enjoying them without being American enough to defend them. BULLSHIT! I'll gladly fight in a war if I think my rights or country are at risk. The difference here in Iraq is that I didn't think they were are risk and I still fucking don't (though given the way Bush has mismanaged the war, they might soon be).
