The last refuge of a liberal

Superb op-ed over at the Washington Post.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/08/26/AR201008...

Quote:

-- Resistance to the vast expansion of government power, intrusiveness and debt, as represented by the Tea Party movement? Why, racist resentment toward a black president.

-- Disgust and alarm with the federal government's unwillingness to curb illegal immigration, as crystallized in the Arizona law? Nativism.

-- Opposition to the most radical redefinition of marriage in human history, as expressed in Proposition 8 in California? Homophobia.

-- Opposition to a 15-story Islamic center and mosque near Ground Zero? Islamophobia.

The liberal elite is running the country and it has only taken a few key issues to show how out of touch they really are.  Its almost laughable if it wasn't reality.

They aren't out of touch they

They aren't out of touch they know exactly what they're saying. They are fighting for their political life. If the left looses either house this Nov they no longer have control and they don't like it. If the tea partiers loose this country is screwed. Help!

The liberal elite

They are so quick to misunderstand and mislable everything Libertarians and Tea Party stands for.  They are also all too willing to tolerate everything that goes against what the USA really stands for.  I don't understand how doing the right thing makes you a racists, nativist, islamaphob or homophob??  Tolerance isn't alway a good thing!

But the liberal elite just closes their eyes and pretend that nothing is happening because most elitist liberals don't want to stir the pot and upset the herd of other liberals.  God forbid anyone should take a stand in defence of the USA, that would just not be PC in the minds of a liberal.

There's something extreamly wrong in this society when a hard working law abiding hetrosexual male and female marry, have a family, build their own lives and raise the family, take responsibility for themselves, remain faithful to each other, earn what they have, are patriotic and appreciative to a country who made their lives possible and for all this they become the outcast and subject of scorn and ridicule.  Yet all those who emulate the dysfunctional Hollywood lifestyle and Hollywoods messed up family structur are the ones being called normal and getting parised.
