    That's the title of an article in today's Advocate.

    I do know that not all "conservatives" are the same - far from it! But why are the "more conservative" always in a state of outrage? Don't you think they'd get tired by being constantly alarmed, worried, forced to witness the End of Everything?

    You'd almost think that a certain kind of conservatism is paranoia, or at least based on the fear of not being able to deal with things as they are, or other people's differences. Or perhaps having to consider that one might actually be wrong sometimes?

    Is ultra-conservatism the fear that someone, somewhere, is doing something different?

    When are conservatives NOT outraged or whining about lie-berals, Obama, the media, gays, how intolerant people are of their bigotry or whatever their made-up victim-complex outrageous outrage du jour of the day is.

    Look.....the vast majority of Conservatives just so happen to be Bible Thumpers.....and pretty much all of those are angry, ignorant, uneducated people. What a coincidence huh? It's like going to the beach and being shocked there's an ocean there.

    True, there are some very nice ones here, for example. I feel, though, that their party sold them all down the river by courting the ultra conservatives. icon_sad.gif

    Are all Dems the same? Hillary and Barack, until a few MONTHS ago were ANTI-gay marriage.. Ass-Clown Biden forcibly drug Obama to come 'out' and support it.. And the Ancient Wisdom of Robert "KKK" Byrd (D-WV) who, as noted in another topic was 3rd in line to become POTUS until he died 3 years ago was a 'Bible Thumper" as well as racist pig: In 1996, before the passage of the Defense of Marriage Act, he said, "The drive for same-sex marriage is, in effect, an effort to make a sneak attack on society by encoding this aberrant behavior in legal form before society itself has decided it should be legal. [...] Let us defend the oldest institution, the institution of marriage between male and female as set forth in the Holy Bible."[

    Well, I'm outraged by a lot of shit and I'm not a conservative. Most of the stuff I'm outraged about even liberals don't find outrageous and conservatives find just hunk dory.

    I would say if you want a roll call of racist bigoted assholes ... sure the Dems a few dixiecrats left that were too old or too feeble to switch to the Republican party in the past 30 years .... but all in all the GOP has the lion's share.

    And on gay rights it isn't even a contest which party is moving in the right direction faster.

    So who are the US politicians YOU support, so we can quote them on gay rights, too? icon_wink.gif

    Polarizing politics within the Republican party based on racism and now the so-called "defense of marriage" is a strategy to hold power not an accident or a theology. It started with Nixon and Goldwater and it continues today ... they are just more veiled about it now.

    Nixon's political strategist Kevin Phillips, in an interview in a 1970 New York Times article: "From now on, the Republicans are never going to get more than 10 to 20 percent of the Negro vote and they don't need any more than that...but Republicans would be shortsighted if they weakened enforcement of the Voting Rights Act. The more Negroes who register as Democrats in the South, the sooner the Negrophobe whites will quit the Democrats and become Republicans. That's where the votes are. Without that prodding from the blacks, the whites will backslide into their old comfortable arrangement with the local Democrats."

    Only now does this strategy of fear seem to be backfiring from the height of it's success in 1981.

    Meaning that the Republicans have been the party of racism for over 40 years. Good to know.
