Facts and Truth. That's what they hate. They want to live in some CONservative Fairy Land. They want to avoid Facts and Truth because neither of those things fits in with their fabricated Fairy Land worldview. They don't like uncomfortable or - Heaven forbid - Inconvenient Truths. That means something their darling dubya used to speak of with some level of incredulity. Anybody remember his "it's Hard Werk" quips. Like maybe he'd never faced any genuinely hard work before. Which I think is probably to be found under the Facts or Truth headings.

Funny, I keep hearing that same sort of thinking, echoed more and more now, everyday. Lear's presentation of the consummate bigot and why those were NOT the days needs to be reproduced, somehow, in the media of today.

Nobody ever wanted to be equated with being an "Archie" back then, once that sitcom reached mega-status in the ratings.

21. Nice list but you forgot the #1 thing

The right for people to vote and have that vote counted.

But your list shows the reason why the republicans have to suppress the vote
because they are so nasty to so many people.



A long time ago this guy, Gov. Ray Shafer of PA, was our next door neighbor's brother
in a very middle class neighborhod and he was a Republican and really good guy too.
He would have no home in the GOP today.

.... would think of bothering him and used to play w/us kids and when an staffer would
try to get him to go he would say, "can't you see I'm in a meeting? He was for civil rights,
unions, education, infrastructure, and the environment.

The "decent republicans" are long gone. It used to be they worked for the good of the
people ..... even nasty ass Jim Rhodes of OH back in the day said he wanted a college or

Conservatives Grudgingly Praise Warren, Pelosi For Opposing 'Wall Street Giveaway'

Some conservatives have acknowledged that they have ideologically more in common than they would like to admit with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) after the progressive senator led the charge against a provision in the $1.1 trillion government funding bill that weakens regulations on financial institutions.

...

"The end times are upon us," Dustin Siggins wrote at Hot Air. "I find myself in agreement with not just Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), but House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)."

...

Some bloggers even said they could envision themselves voting for Warren were she to run for president in 2016 -- a possibility she has repeatedly denied.

"I hope that Sen. Warren will run for president in 2016 to force a national conversation on the Washington-Wall Street power nexus," The American Conservative's Rod Dreher wrote. "Hillary Clinton won’t talk about it. You know that no Republican presidential candidate will talk about it (with the possible -- possible -- exception of Rand Paul). We all need to be talking about it. A populist who talks like Elizabeth Warren and really means it is a Democrat a conservative like me would consider voting for, despite her social liberalism."

42. Union retiree, and I've heard a lot of fellow progressives/Dems bash unions

They use the exact same corporate-friendly talking points, like how unions are all corrupt, which is almost impossible for most unions due to public reporting rules, and open elections. Or how we get layoffs while they work 50 hour weeks, when if they were union, we'd all get more work and better pay, not to mention pensions, health insurance, and much better work conditions.

I will say that the actions of a few, like the NYC janitors, or the occasional union secretary running off with group funds, do make us look bad. All I can say is that my experience was nothing like those entities. We worked hard, and gave eight for eight every day. Our hall cut out the driftwood and do-nothings almost two decades ago, and we compete favorably with non-unions while also putting up quality work. I took great pride in my work, and the work of most all of my co-workers.

50. It's super to see THOM HARTMANN going down your list now. He's also enumerating historic

policies and legislation that have advanced the country and they are predominantly progressive, not conservative. In it's origin and essence the US is progressive. It's undeniable.
(Cons also hate PEACE of course and promote FEAR, to maintain power and create conflict which adds to the $ coffers). [iSic simper tyrannis] .
More Americans need to follow DU and Thom Hartmann's teachings daily on FSTV (Free Speech TV), Radio and online; the country and people would be much better off.

51. Don't use terms like "Tree huggers".

That's their derogatory term for environmentalists. Using it legitimizes their framing. The proper word is "environmentalists" (which I see you also included in the list).

98. True that. My Uncle, who has become a babbling RW FoxNoise devotee keeps posting on facebook

about how he hates Obama. Occasionally he even says why, but of course it's almost always RW lies.

My grandparents, his parents, were both from Virginia/Southern Maryland and grew up with a superiority complex, having been taught that blacks (a word they never had a need for, by the way) were less than human.

My mom is the only one of the 4 siblings in that family not to now be a RW nut--she's a relatively liberal Democrat, thank goodness. The America my uncle describes is some crazy fantasy world where Obama has "taken all of our freedoms." I wonder how these people leave the house believing what they do.

93. Republicans don't really hate anything.

 

They simply love money. Anything that stands in the way of that one thing is something to be attacked.

The sad part is many, far too many, Democrats think the exact same way.

Now, Republican VOTERS hate many of the things you listed, but the actual Republican politicians could give a shit one way or another. Their end goal is MONEY. Their hate speech is just that, speech. If they could champion universal health care, a cut of 90% to the military, a minimum wage of $25/hr, and truly equal rights across the board and make $$$$ while doing so...... Fuck, the next election would be the most liberal ever.

MONEY. Regardless of party, with very rare exceptions. It drives all of it.
