How to point out the supposed hate on the right:

Apparently, you do this by having a left-wing newspaper columnist write the most hate-filled screed that I have seen in some time. This little gem by San Fran Chron writer, Mark Morford, entitled How to hate Barack Obama: Right now, deep in the GOP dungeons, they're planning their racist, disgraceful assault. Whatever will it be?

And that's just the title to the article! Read on, and you will find that the writer has pulled out every little catch phrase and buzz word in a leftist's bag of tricks:
  • People on the right are racist
  • Fox News is right-wing
  • People on the right shop at Wal-Mart
  • People on the right live in trailer parks
  • People on the right are paranoids who will stock up their bunker with Ding-Dongs and Coors
  • People on the right are troglodytes
  • People on the right are afraid of having a black president (then why did they try to recruit Colin Powell and Condoleeza Rice?)
  • People on the right are a bunch of "angry white fat men"
  • People on the right have gun racks in their pickup trucks (Hey, I don't have a problem with that, but the writer uses it as an epithet.)
  • Yet another Republican candidate for president is stupid ("McCain himself ain't exactly the world's sharpest tack")
  • Republicans are the "party of old, white, sexist, racist, classist, warmongering men"
  • The views on immigration of people on the right are "hateful and isolationist"
  • Bush stole both elections
Now, I realize that some of my readers may even agree with some Mr. Morford's sentiments; to tell you the truth, maybe even I do - McCain doesn't strike me as being the sharpest tack either. My motivation for writing this post was simply to showcase the outlandishly huge number of left-wing cliches about people on the right that was somehow shoved into a single newspaper column. Mr. Morford, it seems like you have been wanting to get all of that off your chest for quite some time. I hope it was therapeutic for you, because it seems as if the next stage was for you to go out and start killing folks. I trust that this exercise in stream-of-consciousness helped to assuage your seething rage.

Good Day to You, Sir

And of course you, being on the right wing, would not accuse someone of being fascist, would you? No. Because that would be hypocritical when you have an article like this..

Check out the takeover of the U.S. private sector that Hillary wants to accomplish, look up the definition of fascism, and then get back to me.

Donalbain said...

She does not want to "take over" the private sector. Neither is she a communist.

Donalbain, pointing out that people who support mass collectivization and government control are "fascists" is a lot different than saying right wingers are racists. The first is a definition, the second is not--except to people so far on the left they don't see their anti-right bias the same way they see racism.

Wow, he really had some bile to chew on there. And Donald, Billary at best is a Socialist.

Law and Order Teacher said...

Whew. That was a rant worthy of the Unibomber. What was as you said, impressive the sheer volume of hate-filled abuse stuffed into one article. This guy should write a book. He could make a fortune in underground sales to Democrats. Anger control.

Until today I had reserved the appellation "idiot" for Harry Reid, but I'm adding the name Mark Morford to the list. If he's as young as his picture, it's really sad.
