Dear Liberals: About Your Politics of Hate

I dare say that, after a month of two of denial, liberal pundits will start asking: How could this happen to good people like us?

Let me help.  The answer is simple.

Racists, sexists, bigots and homophobes.

No, I don't mean that racists, sexists, bigots and homophobes did this to you.  I mean that liberal politics, which marginalizes anyone that disagrees with the liberal ruling class as a racist, sexist, bigot or homophobe, is the problem here.  Let me quote conservative writer Harry Stein.
[W]hen I asked a liberal longtime editor I know with a mainstream [publishing] house for a candid, shorthand version of the assumptions she and her colleagues make about conservatives, she didn't hesitate. “Racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-choice fascists,” she offered, smiling but meaning it.
Gee, I forgot the Gosnell part of all this; that would be important to well-born feminist editors.

The point is this.  When you so easily brand your political opponents as evil monsters, it becomes very easy to decide that they don't deserve a place in the public square.  It becomes easy to, e.g., hold up applications from Tea Party groups for 401(c)(4) status at the IRS.

Mike Adams, conservative professor at the University of North Carolina goes further.  He reminds his readers that the political correctness/multicultural culture at our nations' colleges actually teaches young people to be ruthless warriors in the political wars.
Many were shocked to learn that IRS agents actually targeted conservative advocacy groups for heightened scrutiny when making decisions concerning their tax exempt status. I don't know why so many people were shocked. This is what university administrators have been doing for nearly twenty years. I've been writing about it for over ten years because I know that what you see on the campus today is what you will see in the broader culture tomorrow.
What is more, the students that show ruthlessness towards Christians and conservatives and white males get rewarded by the powers that be.  And if they cut a corner or two, hey, no worries!

So of course when these young skulls full of mush get out into the real world of liberal activism they just do as they have learned.  They sicc the IRS on the ordinary Americans that have formed Tea Party groups -- and then they sneer at the rubes for their naivete in actually following the rules.

(If they are dumb rubes then how can they be dangerous extremists?)

And that's the problem with the Alinsky culture.  You see, it's one thing to be a speaking-truth-to-power activist making the powerful follow their own rules, and going after people rather than institutions because people hurt easier.  But when you become the government then doing the Alinsky is simple injustice -- rank, raw, cruel injustice.

So let's do the full Eisenhower on this.  If you don't know how to solve a problem, make it bigger.

The real problem is that, with the Death of God in the ruling class, our liberal ruling class has made politics their religion.  But when you integrate politics and religion and add in the economy for good measure, what you get is totalitarianism.

I just happen to have been writing about that only yesterday.  The problem, as I define it, is the need for "Separation of Secular Church and State."  In the Founding Fathers' vision, there should not be an establishment of religion.  Good point.  But what about secular religion, like socialism, fascism, environmentalism (saving the planet)?  The problem is just the same.  You really don't want moralists as government officials legislating their morality on the rest of us.

But liberals don't get that.  Just try it on a liberal friend.  They don't realize that when they rail about "hate" groups they are talking about themselves.  Because politics is division, and it divides with hate, as in: "I hate Republicans and everything they stand for."

  1. Good post. But while politics hasn't always been religious in its fervor, religion has certainly always been political. To a great degree, the more things change, the more they stay the same.
