Democrats thrive on a culture of hate

To Democrats, “tolerance” is nothing more than a front behind which they can build a culture of hate. There is no room for any opinion but their own. You can see it happening on issue after issue.

On college campuses, the left has created a virtually absolute zone of intolerance against conservative professors; you can’t get into a tenure track job in any department if you’re not “progressive”. Conservative students face lower grades for speaking up about their views in class and conservative organizations are outcasts.

Laws or rules against “hate speech” are really against “conservative speech”.

Republicans are constantly accused of waging a “War on Women” or “Minorities” or whoever the progressive group du jour happens to be and the media are willing accomplices with the Democrats.

The problem is, it’s the Democrats who are at war. It’s been exposed time and again, and in political races you can bet the second panic sets in the stream of vile hate starts.

Today we’re looking at the latest expose by Project Veritas. James O’Keefe does great work. He got into a meeting of Battleground Texas, a progressive group that is an offshoot of Organizing for America, the President’s political arm – a 501c group that the IRS won’t investigate.

For a little background, Democrats desperately want to “Turn Texas Blue” and they were sure they’d found their heroine in Wendy Davis – known in Texas as Abortion Barbie. Davis got national attention when she managed to delay a vote in the Texas Senate on a law that required abortion clinics to meet the same medical standards as other out-patient clinics. The law was later passes overwhelmingly, it’s supported by the vast majority of Texans, and it was upheld in the courts.

None the less, the abortion lobby is behind Wendy and she was able to raise about $12 million out-of-state dollars to run for governor. She’s raised enough in-state for lunch at McDonalds. Things were going along swimmingly and a Democrat newspaper reporter who has been frequently featured on MSNBC ripping Texas Republicans to shreds wrote an article about AbortionBarbie and noted that the life story she’s been peddling is a lie, and the long knives have come out.

The presumptive Republican candidate for governor is a paraplegic, confined to a wheelchair, and here’s what the Democrats at Battleground Texas – remember, it’s an Obama organization through-and-through, think about a physically disabled Republican who happens to be the current Attorney General of Texas.

Nice, huh?

The left is screaming that the video was “taken out of context”, blah, blah, blah. Judge for yourself.

You can bet this isn’t over. We’re going to be following AbortionBarbie and her campaign. Right now things aren’t going well for her and your Curmudgeon will happily toss a few pebbles on the pile.

Tomorrow, we’ll have the Attorney General’s response.

    The left only wanted “tolerance” when their views and opinions were minority views, way out of the mainstream. Over time, as they’ve slowly but surely taken over education, the MSM, and the entertainment industry, they’ve taken to labeling different views as extreme and they’re doing all they can to silence any and all dissent.

    The left has always hated the US. Too much freedom, too many middle class religious gun owning people who simply want to be left alone to live their lives and wanted to be treated equally under the law.

    The left hates that, hates them and have finally started to vocalize their views as witnessed by Cuomo, diBlasio and Davis recently, and Obama during the course of his presidency.

    Tolerance was always a lie. Hate may end up being an understatement.

  • jim_m

    The facade that the left puts up that they are not prejudiced hides the fact that they are some of the most bigoted people you will ever encounter.

    • Brucehenry

      Here is what a commenter at OTB said in response to a comment from some dude named “bandit” who said: “Every liberal is a racist in his putrid black heart.” This was on a thread about the MSNBC panel who made fun of Mitt’s black grandchild.

      Means pretty much what you just said, right? Here’s commenter Michael Reynolds in reply:

      “I doubt you realize just how revealing that comment is. Obviously it’s false since the entirety of the local liberal population condemned the remark. Liberals didn’t tolerate it from one of “our own” any more than we’d tolerate it from FOX.

      So much for the superficial content of your statement.

      Now, here’s what your remark really means. It means you find racism to be a perfectly natural system of belief. You don’t think anyone is actually not a racist.You think everyone is a racist and is just hiding it.

      Because that’s what you are and what you do.

      It’s quite a common syndrome for conservatives. You figure you and all your friends are racist sexist, and homophobic so you can’t believe anyone isn’t. You’ve accepted the need to conceal your true feelings so you skulk and talk in code and lie. You’re usually pretty bad at it so you get busted fairly frequently, which just makes you angry because, again, you’re only feeling what you’ve convinced yourself everyone feels. Then when a liberal says something like this you leap from cover and yell ‘Ah hah! I knew you were all just as depraved as me!’

      But we’re not.”

      I saved that comment so I could copy it one of these days when you pulled your liberals-are-the-real-racists bullshit. And that day has come.

      • alanstorm

        Bruce, your quoted reply is unadulterated BS. The first paragaph might be true; it’s possible. however, the part starting at “Now, here’s what your remark really means.” is pure garbage, a bizarre and unsupported attack deriving “facts” from thin air, much like most liberal pronouncements. Nothing in “bandit’s” 10 words supports any of Mr. Reynold’s assertions, or yours.

        Than again, your reading comprehension never HAS been very good, has it?

        Liberals remain the true racists, and the supporters of the “culture of hate”.

        • Brucehenry

          Both Reynolds’ reply and your hackneyed he-who-smelt-it-dealt-it bullshit are political rhetoric. Not posted here as quantifiable fact, just a rejoinder to the common conventional Wizbang wisdom.

            “You don’t want, with your history, to have another tussle about “reading comprehension,” Junior.”

            Talking to the mirror again? Is it giving you the answers you want?

            Bruce reveals another give-away liberal trait: self-delusion.

            I note that you fail to rebut my point: that Reynold’s comment, which you appeared to quote approvingly, is pure unadulterated BS; typical liberal projection. Your more recent comment appears to denigrate his comment, which invites the question “Why then did you post it?”.

            Do you know why you posted it? Can you give us yet a third reason?

            And yes, your reading comprehension is still sub-par, child. Perhaps it will improve by the time you leave high school.

          • Brucehenry

            Reynolds’ reply, again, is political rhetoric, not “fact.” To say that is not to denigrate it (do you know what “denigrate” means?). It’s a clever retort given to the tired “liberals are the real racists” canard, which is also political rhetoric, unproven and unprovable, a matter of opinion. Or, more accurately, the “liberals are the real racists” meme is a transparent attempt to “gotcha” liberals by faulty and twisted logic. It’s a big fat “Nuh-uh, YOU are!” that is pathetic in its simple-minded refusal to acknowledge reality.

            I suppose I could take the time to find the months-old threads in which you demonstrate an inability to read simple English sentences and beclown yourself by trying to score rhetorical saberthrusts, ala your hero Jim, based on your misreading, but why bother? You and I both remember them, you to your chagrin.

            I think that may be why you only seem to show up here in reply to me or another liberal commenter. You don’t seem to have anything to say about the articles themselves, you just occasionally appear, mosquito-like, to snipe at me (mostly). It’s OK, though, you are quite harmless and ineffective.

            EDIT: I’m glad though, that you felt the need to bring up this 2-day old conversation again. It gives me the opportunity to show you what a real “culture of hate” looks like, courtesy of the most recent former head of the South Carolina GOP, Todd Kincannon. He speaks for many, I assume, since he was until recently heading up a whole state’s Republican Party.

          • alanstorm

            Aww, Bruce you’re so cut! Ignorant, yes, and completely impervious to anything resembling facts or logic, but just adorable.

            “Or, more accurately, the “liberals are the real racists” meme is a
            transparent attempt to “gotcha” liberals by faulty and twisted logic.”

            No, dear boy, it’s simply an observation. Liberals prove every day that they are obsessed with race. They then project that onto conservatives, to avoid dealing with the painful reality. The comment you posted wasn’t clever at all, nor were you clever in posting it.

            “Not posted here as quantifiable fact, just a rejoinder to the common conventional Wizbang wisdom.”

            So you posted it to accomplish nothing. Congrats – you’ve finally succeeded at something.

            “I suppose I could take the time to find the months-old threads in which you demonstrate an inability to read simple English sentences and beclown yourself by trying to score rhetorical saberthrusts, ala your hero Jim, based on your misreading, but why bother? You and I both remember them, you to your chagrin.”

            The cuteness just doesn’t stop! My chagrin? I’m sure you see it that way. Bantering with you is like playing chess with a pigeon – you knock over all the pieces, shit on the board, and then strut around like you won. I’m sure the audience in your head says you won.

            “It’s OK, though, you are quite harmless and ineffective.” More projection. I shouldn’t be surprised; it’s a liberal specialty after all.

            Good luck graduating.

          • alanstorm

            No, I didn’t look at it. It was not germane to the issue, as your quote from Mr. Reynolds was the thing under discussion. Not everyone falls for the “Look! Shiny!” defense.

            I simply had one more comment to make:

            Re: “I think that may be why you only seem to show up here in reply to me or
            another liberal commenter. You don’t seem to have anything to say about
            the articles themselves, you just occasionally appear, mosquito-like, to
            snipe at me…”

            I don’t have time to follow you around and clean up your messes. I won’t be here every time you say something stupid. You see, child, I have this activity called a “job”, where people pay me to do engineering design work. You may find out about this “job” concept when – if – you get out of high school. Thus, much as it will disappoint you, I can’t lurk on the internet 24/7 in hopes you will post something I can criticize. BTW, that’s one reason I like it when (A) you post a comment and (B) I have time to read and respond: you make it so EASY! Like the proverbial fish in a barrel, your sophomoric and sophomaniac comments are an irresistible target.

            ‘Bye now! Don’t forget to write!

          • Brucehenry

            Oh, OK.

            I thought it might be germane to the issue of the “culture of hate” which was in the title to this article, and that my posting of Reynolds’ OTB comment was the type of tangent I’m often scolded about here. Pardon me.

            Yes, you have bested me again, Alan, and I feel so ashamed. I’m gonna brush up on my reading comprehension so that I don’t incur your mighty snark in the future. But if I fuck up and piss you off again I’ll just have to muddle through somehow. The suspense of waiting 3 days to see what your devastating, rapier-like retort will be will likely kill me but I’ll just have to take that chance.

          • http://wizbangblog.com/author/rodney-graves/ Rodney G. Graves

            No one who has been here for more than a few days mistakes any of your commentary for that which is germane .

          • Brucehenry

            I see that, unlike Alan, who has this thing he calls a “job,” whatever that is, YOU have nothing better to do than lurk on the internet 24/7 and wait for my comment.

            You’re doing it well, though. Excellent job.

      • jim_m

        You figure you and all your friends are racist sexist, and homophobic so you can’t believe anyone isn’t.

        Quite the contrary. I somehow don’t think that the left would have to be constantly faking hate crimes if all the conservatives were racist as you claim.

        But you have provided us all a textbook example of projection. Thanks.

Ditto the disembodied voice asking about absentee ballots. Etc etc etc. Unverified typical O’Keefe work.

    O’Keefe is a serial liar and a burglar who has been shown again and again to be a dishonest POS. If you think he does “great work” you’re a rube of the lowest order.

    • Brucehenry

      Don’t know if you noticed but all but one entry on the first page of that google search was from butthurt conservatives whining because they were called mean names. Many of them were complaining about the same namecallers.

      • Retired military

        Bruce

        Who was the ones calling the names? That was the point.
        Answer : it wasn’t anyone from the right.

        In short. The ones on the left have way overplayed the race card.

        to Quote the first 2 lines of Mr Becker’s article above

        “To Democrats, “tolerance” is nothing more than a front behind which they can build a culture of hate. There is no room for any opinion but their own. You can see it happening on issue after issue.


        In short, if you disagree with just about anything Obama says, does, or believes in than you are called a racist by the left. Not just Joe lefty on the street but by folks such as Biden, Shaprton, Schumer, Obama, Reid, Pelosi, the talking heads of the MSM and the rest of the leadership of the democrat party.

        • Brucehenry

          If your point was that because there are over 4 miilion hits on the “tea party racist terrorist” search, and 3.95 million of them are from Breitbart and Newsbusters screaming “THEY CALLED US RACISTS!!!” you haven’t proven anything, sorry.

          • Sky__Captain

            Um, you haven’t proven anything either, L’il Brucie.

            And these are but a few examples of the thousands that are out there.

          • Brucehenry

            Sorry, RM, but very few of these “notable quotes” had much to do with “if you disagree with anything Obama says yada yada”

            Some of them were about the debt ceiling. Some were about the never-proved claims that black Congressmen were spit upon. Some were about generic name-calling but very few if any can be read as “He disagrees with Obama so he’s a racist.”

          • Retired military

            Bruce
            As I said. If you don’t want to acknowledge what is obviously true than I am sorry. I just don’t feel like it right now.
            I know most of your remarks are tit for tat with the others so I do tend to overlook a lot that you say as responding in kind to others (as they are responding in kind to you and others like Chico, sorry for seemingly putting you in the same class as him I do not feel that that is an accurate representation of your views).

            I just don’t feel like politics too much right now.

            Have a good night.

        • jim_m

          Not just obama, but if you disagree with any black public figure you are declared racist. The recent to do over Richard Sherman from the Seahawks showed that anyone who though he acted like a punk was quickly tarred as a racist.

          The left has created a black subculture that demands that they never be criticized or held up to the same standards as anyone else. They have created a permanent underclass that believes that they are incapable of ever competing. In essence they have created a group of people that voluntarily keep themselves poor and ignorant.

  • Lawrence Westlake

    Leftism is a severe mental disorder, not an ideology, so this sort of thing is par for the course. Actually, it understates just how deranged are the denizens of the left. Abbott is a political enemy of theirs. There is a method of sorts to that particular madness. They want to win that contest. They have no chance. They’re projecting. They’re angry. To really get a grip about just how hateful leftists truly are, however, you need to see and hear them in private moments which have nothing to do with pending political contexts. It’s worse than you can fathom.

      In October, the “Truckers Ride for the Constitution” rally, led by a hodgepodge of conservative truck drivers, was held outside Washington, with the aim of arresting House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.). Organizers expected thousands of people to attend. Thirty truckers showed up, led by a woman who believes that Obama and Osama bin Laden are the same person. “They have same height, bone structure, hands and ears both are left handed,” she noted. So many of the delusional tea party leaders seem bat-shit crazy.’1.8 Million Definite Militia Members” to March on DC, Install New Government’

      Harry Riley has a dream. On the morning of May 16, somewhere between 10 and 30 million (estimates vary) God-fearing patriots will assemble in Washington, DC, for what Riley, a retired Army colonel from the Florida panhandle, is calling “Operation American Spring.”http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2014/01/harry-riley-operation-american-spring-fox-news For Riley & Co., the stakes couldn’t be higher. “My knees will not touch the surface as a result of some piss ant occupant of the White House or a corrupt legislator, or outside element,” Riley wrote. “I will fall to my death standing if

        Yeah, and all sorts of lefties have had wet dreams about bringing millions of people to DC for their fascist agenda. If I had a dollar for every idiot claiming that he was going to bring a million people to march on DC I could retire.

        No surprise that someone like you gets taken in by this crap.

        The last time there was a genuine TEA Party event on the mall in DC the park was left cleaner than when they arrived. What are you worried about? That they will make the country a decent place to live instead of the trash filled cesspool that you desire and which is the hallmark of every left wing demonstration? I dare you to find the level of criminals in the TEA Party as were found in the OWS movement.

        Tell me Steve: How many pedophiles, rapists, murderers were found in the TEA Party and how many in the OWS? Party of hate? Better than the party of criminality and pedophilia. But we know where you stand. You stand with the rapists, murderers and pedophiles.
