Why are (modern progressive) Liberals so mean?

    Depending on where I am traveling to in the USA I find that certain areas are more annoyingly liberal versus others. And what I notice is that in almost every case young millennial liberals are some of the most obnoxious, pushy and socially inept people I've encountered. So for shits, kicks and giggles I decided to do a Google search with the title of this thread. And as I got to the second word "are", Google already finished my query. icon_lol.gif

    From the search results, I found this online article from a conservative website called townhall.com:
    http://townhall.com/columnists/johnhawkins/2012/04/03/5_reasons_liberals_are_such_unpleasant_people_to_be_around

    While reading it, the five reasons resonated with me for the most part. So here they are, for the most part, (with my personal addendum followed afterward and in blue).

    1) They're (liberals) unhappy:
    Study after study shows that conservatives are happier people than liberals. The difference can be staggering. I can quote studies but why bother? From my personal observations all I have to engage a third wave feminist (a very unpleasant experience, I might add) or a privileged white hipster to see the apathy. Or I can go visit just about any college campus. You can cut the misery with a knife as all these know-it-all whippersnapper (usually/almost always) white liberals loom about. Once, a college female sneezed in my presence. So trying to be polite, I said, "Bless you." She rolled her eyes at me in disgust! (See #4 below)

    [/color]2) 2) Liberals don't care as much about tradition: In many cases, societal conventions represent the accumulated wisdom of previous generations. Through trial and error, they discovered that there are certain things you can do that help keep a society running well. There are reasons why people get together and sing Christmas carols in the town square, refuse to insult people immediately after they die, treat marriage as sacred, and don't turn funerals into campaign rallies. Because liberals tend to think they're smarter than all those old dead people simply by virtue of being liberal, they tend to ignore those conventions and create disorder and havoc around themselves in the process.

    3) 3) Liberals see people who disagree as evil: When you attribute disagreements with Barack Obama to racism, opposition to gay marriage to homophobia, standing against abortion as hatred of women, and a desire to balance the budget to loathing of the poor, you have a hopelessly simplistic view of the world that makes you utterly impervious to reason. Stupid, you may be able to educate, but evil, you have to defeat -- and liberals are seldom picky about the means or the manners they use while trying to do so.

    I couldn't agree more. Just take the MO's on this site, as a clear cut example. When I point out how full of shit Hillary is I get branded as a Republican (is that really supposed to be an insult, by the way?), am bombarded with ad hominem attacks and name calling, a sellout to other gay men, blah blah blah. Or if I point out the hypocrisy of BLM I get branded as a racist by angry liberals on this site. No one calls the many black youtubers racists for vehemently opposing BLM.

    4) Liberals aren't very religious: Liberals are overwhelmingly either atheists or agnostics, people who don't take their religious beliefs very seriously in the first place, or people who allow their ideology to completely subvert their religious beliefs. This is no small matter because religion is one of the great civilizing forces.
    I think this also falls in line with tradition which was mentioned above. Also, the keynote here is "civilizing forces." Although I'm not religious personally, no one can deny how religion has played an integral role in developing society on a global level. But a liberal is all too eager to point out the evil influence it has had over humanity. And what I'm also noticing that seems to work in tandem with the waning of religion is the "gynocentricification" of society in many modern cultures. Nowadays "men" are the villains, the bad guys while women are victims, good and pure. Our founding fathers and religious beliefs are what created the society we now live in that many liberals today would be more than happy to dismantle.

    5)5) Liberalism encourages arrogance: Liberals tend to believe they're brilliant, compassionate, moral, enlightened, perceptive, and courageous, not because of anything they've actually done, but just because they're liberal. When you completely divorce a person's self image from his behavior, it produces terrible results....
    The above in bold is something I couldn't have said better myself. Also note the hypocrisy when a "compassionate" liberal brands anyone who disagrees with him as evil. There's nothing like encountering a "compassionate" liberal as he hurls ad hominem attacks at you during one of his or her usual emotional tirades. icon_lol.gif

    I suppose the happy bug has to do with their inability to feel guilt and as the saying goes, ignorance is bliss.

    Also, without liberals, as a gay individual you would have never enjoyed the rights you have now. Perhaps, you may have faced death penalty before you even get to throw the bile on liberals.

    Sadly this angry liberal hate has invaded Australia now, to the point they now threatening violence. Not long posted a comment on a Aussie site about Kylie Minogue, stating she wants to Mary in Melbourne, but want until gays can too; oh please.

    All one said was: Don't hold your breath, your relationship may be over by then; she doesn't have a good Trac record. Then oh my, the abouse that stated from the leftards. Liberals in the Land Down under, represent our conservatives.

    The odd thing is that I only see Right Wingers attacking others like this here. And labeling all non-Rights as "libtards". But it's LIBERALS who are "so mean"? Yeah, right... icon_rolleyes.gif

    My experience has been that conservatives think liberals are "mean" because conservatives can't deal with disagreement.

    Don't you have something more effective to do on the site like posting brainless threads about Donald Trump while associating him with food and racism?

    Try an explain how that thread you created above has any intelligent argument associated with it other than serving as some petty ad hominem attack.

    (Addressing specifically what you typed in bold): Oh well that's a very intelligent point you made. Living in America in the twenty-first century I have no doubt that if it weren't for liberals that I would be burned at the stake for being gay. icon_rolleyes.gif

    It's almost like you're comparing us to gay life in the Middle East where Muslims stone people for being gay, among many other reasons for taking human life.

    By the way, my thread was based on modern progressive liberals, not classical liberals. I think I will amend the title to this thread.

    It's a political comment on the state of the Trump candidacy. If you consider that "ad hominem" then you are more of a thin-skinned Right Winger than I had imagined. Who can dish it out but can't take it.

    You have no objections to guys here calling Hillary Clinton a whore, or crooked, or any number of personal insults & attacks. Sorry, your assigned talking points don't play well here.

    Your handlers are wasting their investment on you. And with your cohorts here. One of the first things I was taught in public speaking, part of my Speech degree, was to know your audience. And to tailor your remarks accordingly. You might benefit with such a course.

    Oh, never mind. Why should I be helping you? Fall flat on your face here. That would entertain most of us better. icon_biggrin.gif

    White Liberals are the worst people on Earth. Worse than ISIS, even, because ISIS assholes are from the degraded gutter culture of Islam and can't be expected to know any better. White Liberals, on the other hand, come from the most enlightened and wonderful culture ever known to man, yet piss all over it. They are full of self-hate, and spew that hatred on everyone around them. It really seems like a mental disorder.

    FUCK WHITE LIBERALS

    LOL, it's quite clear who the thin-skinned person is around here. Look at you (poorly) attempting to invalidate my stance by tossing your credentials into the discussion. Your infallible "S"peech degree, which by the way you don't capitalize in the context that you wrote it but perhaps you did so to self-aggrandize (which wouldn't surprise any of us given your swollen-headed bragging on a daily basis), doesn't lend you any credibility here whatsoever. Stay on point and muster what little integrity you have by refraining from your usual sophistry and fallacious tactics. Simply admit that the thread you started about Trump associating him with Mexican food and racism was asinine. You made no valid point whatsoever and Trump has made it clear that he only wants to keep illegals from entering the US. So basically all you've done was spread and support a lie by posting a childish meme.

    So what is the name of this illustrious university where you earned your "S"peech degree? I bet you make your professors proud with every RJ post you compose and share. icon_lol.gif

    Bobby Boo boo, if your memory allows you, go back to when Sarah Palin was running for VP. There was no blow to low, not even when it came to her family, and since there has never been any depth to the depravity of you Libtards, you guys have set the bar of decorum, that's lower than a snakes belly. Another truth you will simply choice to ignore, and project it on anything that lears to the right. Consera6have been called many derogatory names here at RJ, yet you object to libtards; bite me.
