Increasingly Mean and Hypocritical Liberals
I can’t stand Palin attacks.
It’s almost like “Let’s teach this hick a lesson. Destroy her, kill her dead, and make sure no pro-life small-town women will ever run for any high office again.”
I’ve had it with the character assassination of Joe the plumber.
It’s like “Let’s smear this guy till he wishes he was never born to make doubly sure NOBODY will ever question our beloved leader Barack Obama.”
I despise Obama who condones all those nasty attacks and pretends to be above the fray.
Whenever my “Democrat” friends ask me why I don’t support Obama, I give them my most honest answer:
Because I’m a liberal Democrat.
Not one of those fake Democrats who are blindly following Obama, but a true blue Democrat.
I’m as left as it gets. I’m a pro-choice, pro-animal-rights, pro-environment, pro-gay-marriage, pro-separation-of-church-and-state pro-multi-culture, anti-discrimination, anti-bullying, anti-dirty-tricks Democrat.
I believe the best virtue of the liberal Democrats is tolerance.
I believe Democrats are fair, open-minded, inclusive and kind. We have a heart. We are a big-tent party.
That is exactly why I cannot stand Obama and his followers’ mean-spiritied attacks on Sarah, Joe, Cindy and Sen. John McCain.
Don’t we, the liberal Democrats, always proudly say that we are fair, open-minded, tolerant and inclusive?
Don’t we appreciate different cultures and different values?
If muslims try to build a mosque from which they blast azaan (call to prayer) in a town in America and some residents complain, we, the liberal Democrats, will be lining up for the muslims to defend their right to pray.
We will do so because we believe in diversity, we celebrate our differences and we respect all religions and all cultures (except the ones that are unspeakably inhumane, violent or racist.)
When Rev. Wright said what he said, we, the liberal Democrats, defended his freedom of speech and his right to think whatever he wants to think.
We did so because we believe in free speech/free will/free thoughts.
But unfortunately, most liberal Democrats don’t extend the same courtesy to evangelical Christians and Republicans.
We defend a high schooler’s right to dye her hair pink, but we ridicule Palin’s hair-do.
We defend a person who wears an anti-Bush T-shirt, but we call a teen who wears McCain/Palin T-shirt a “racist”.
We praise abortion-right activist stars but we laugh at musicians who believe in abstinence and wear promise rings.
I grew up in many different countries and I have friends all over the world. I learned in early childhood that the only way to get along with people with different backgrounds is to respect their culture and values.
In North Carolina, Gov. Palin said “We believe that the best of America is in these small towns that we get to visit, and in these wonderful little pockets of what I call the real America, being here with all of you hard working very patriotic, um, very, um, pro-America areas of this great nation. “
Jon Stewart took that comment personally and said:
“She said that small towns, that’s the part of the country she really likes going to because that’s the pro-America part of the country. You know, I just want to say to her, just very quickly: fuck you.”
This is the same Jon Stewart who unabashedly praises Obama who is willing to meet with rogue dictators without pre-conditions and whose initial response to Russia’s invasion of Geogia was “let them talk.”
If he admires Obama that much, why can’t he follow Obama’s logic and offer an olive branch to his enemy, Sarah Palin?
He doesn’t even know her. He doesn’t even want to know her.
Jon Stewart, like Madonna, Colbert, Afleck and Damon(both from Boston), deosn’t understand why Palin and many”fly-over-staters” feel that way.
They feel that way because comedians and television shows written by us, the progressive Democrats, have constantly belittled, mocked, ridiculed and sneered at their way of life and their values day in and day out 24/7 for as long as I can remember.
I wonder if Jon Stewart remembers Newton’s Third Law of Motion.
“To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.”
Their “small-town-values-are-the-best” mantra is just a reaction to our sneer. We’ve made them feel they have to defend their way of life and their values.
Our action (superiority complex, sneering their values) caused their reaction (counter superiority complex as defense mechanism).
In other words, it is our fault they feel that way. We caused this divide.
If we had shown them basic courtesy and respect, they wouldn’t have hardened their heart against us.
I have a friend, a Texan, who is proud to be a redneck.(“redneck” is like the n word. non-redneck should ever use this term) We have totally different values, but he is one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet and I like him and respect his values.
Jon Stewart lives in New York and he knows many people from different countries with various backgrounds. He’s an “adult” and he can agree to disagree. He’s so tolerant and inclusive that he even respects Palestinians’ right to revolt against Israel but he’s not tolerant enough to respect Republican values.
If only he had a friend, just one friend who is proud to be a “redneck”, he would probably understand their point of views and could feel some empathy and would be able to show some respect.
But Jon Stewart, like most of the liberal Democrat, lives within his comfort zone among like minded liberal Democrats.
Big city liberals laugh at small town Republicans who don’t have passports. They laugh at Texas and Alabama and say “Those states are like the third world.”
I beg your pardon?
Aren’t we the liberal progressives who want to respect and support the third world?
Where’s the sympathy? Now, who’s the small-minded biggot?
If Jon Stewart wants to mock intolerance and lack of respect towards different cultures/religions, he should start mocking his own hypocrisy, his own intolerance towards evangelical Christians and his lack of respect towards small town values.
I just want to say to him:
Hath not a small-town Republican eyes? Hath not a small-town evangelical Christian hands,
organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions; hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, heal’d by the same means, warm’d and cool’d by the same winter and summer, as a Democrat is? If you prick him, does he not bleed? If you tickle him, does he not laugh? If you poison him, does she not die? And if you wrong him, does he not revenge? If he is like you in the
rest, he will resemble you in that.
