Hey, Let’s Seceede Or Start a Revolution… Said the Left in 2005
This is a good point: Although liberals are laughing at conservatives’ frustrations and the very human responses to it, they themselves experienced similar frustrations, and had similar responses to them, after Bush’s reelection.
This is an important point: 96% of the reason conservatives are viewed as “weird” or “extreme” or what-have-you is that the media, controlled by the left, covers-up/embargoes their own excesses (and, when forced to report upon such excesses, supply a lot of “context” which justifies these excesses), but of course loves reporting similar conservative statements (without any justifying “context,” needless to say).
It hardly needs to be said, at least on the right, that Jonathan Chait was not pilloried as a “hater” for his infamous “Why I Hate George W. Bush” column. Instead, it was celebrated — among the left, I mean; they didn’t broadly report it to the general public — for how it so daringly captured the real feeling of the left.
Needless to say my own “Why I Hate Barack Hussein Obama” column would not be celebrated as “daring,” “honest,” “bracing,” or “cathartic.” It would be a hate crime and a symptom of possibly dangerous impulses.
This is what I hate more than anything else: the hypocrisy, the division of citizens into two classes, the Privileged Class, which has a broad license and range of liberty, and the Disfavored Underclass, whose liberty is sharply restricted.
And they’ll call themselves patriots and Sons of the Enlightenment. They’re Sons of Gramsci and Sons of Marx and Sons of Mao, not Sons of the Enlightenment.
But when you have the near exclusive right to write your own bio, you can be anything you’d like people to think you are.
