I have finally seen the light. Liberals are indeed destroying this country.

In their articulate and carefully reasoned arguments, conservative letter writers have made it impossible for any enlightened individual to come to any other conclusion.

How could I have been so naive? All I had to do was think about how different things were when I was growing up in the 1960s.

I was raised in a small town. Everybody pretty much knew everybody else. We didn’t have any of the violence that’s become so commonplace now. I remember our sheriff didn’t even carry a gun.

(His deputy did – but not one of those AKs or ARs you hear so much about these days. In fact, he was able to keep the peace with only one bullet that he kept in his shirt pocket until he needed it – which he never did.)

Yes, before the liberals came along, you could leave your doors unlocked at night and not worry. Moreover, civil rights were not an issue – at least not in my hometown. I never saw anyone who didn’t look like me and we all seemed to get along just fine.

And contrary to what liberals might tell you, women had equal rights where I grew up. Once my aunt even ran for town council.

OK. There was the one time when this guy living in the woods convinced me that it was OK to steal from the rich and give to the poor, but luckily the sheriff caught on to this liberal brainwashing scheme and shut the whole thing down before it got completely out of hand.

Voting rights? Fairness ordinances? Health care for everyone? Gender equality? Huddled masses longing to breathe free?

Yes, it really was a much better world before the liberals came along and mucked everything up.

Enough Already

Denouncing? Sure.

I denounce nationalist/supremacists ideology and so does any good Conservative, but my name isn't Eric. Those conspiracy rumors continue running wild in your head I see. Now let's see you own the racism of the Democrat party. No? I didn't think so. You and the MSM conveniently ignore history and perpetuate myths and lies hoping everyone is as stupid as you think they are. Your party fields crazy communist candidates and you think you'll beat Trump? This is election is going to be a bigger blow out than Hillary's candidacy. I can hardly contain my excitement.

Your time to own the sins of the Democrat party is coming. I still have the link bookmarked, how about you?

"I denounce nationalist/supremacists ideology..."

You left out 'white' nationalist/supremacist, but hey, it's a step in the right direction.



"any good Conservative..."

They've already flew the coop due to the overt idiocy of this current administration. Only the most deranged are still standing by it.



"my name isn't Eric."

If you say so, but given how much you've lied in the past, I shall remain skeptical.



"Now let's see you own the racism of the Democrat party. No? I didn't think so."

Must've overlooked me doing just that in my reply to AP below. Allow me to re-post it here.

Two wrongs don't make a right. Happy now?



"ignore history and perpetuate myths and lies..."

Hilarious. Past discourse on this very medium goes to prove just who the deceptive one has been.



"Your party fields crazy communist candidates and you think you'll beat Trump? This is election is going to be a bigger blow out than Hillary's candidacy."

My party? Didn't know that I had a 'party', so... there's that, but we'll just have to wait and see on this one.



"Your time to own the sins of the Democrat party is coming."

I'm sure that this means something to you, but it is lost on me as to exactly what that could be.



"I still have the link bookmarked, how about you?"

Of course.










Absolutely Positively

To add to Aaron's list: abortion, gay marriage, an explosion in illegitimate births accompanied by an explosion in single mothers relying on public assistance to raise their kids, crime-ridden housing projects where they stored black Americans, coming up with new genders on a weekly basis... we could go on all day!

Koheleth

Yeah, we get it. You are a crotchety white Christian male with a penchant for emotionally charged outbursts predicated on low information who is afraid that his privileged status is under assault from those less entranced by the delusions of your halcyonic days wish list.

Absolutely Positively

You say that like it's a bad thing.



That aside, why don't liberals take credit for their work? I'm still waiting for them to take credit for rounding up Asians against their will and sticking them in concentration camps during WWII for the crime of looking like the enemy.



But don't listen to me. I'm just a straight white Christian male who is in a monogamous marriage to a straight white Christian female, and we have good jobs and stay out of trouble, and our straight binary progeny are well-behaved and successful and so forth... so what the hell do we know about anything?

Koheleth

That you think it isn't speaks volumes.



You mean take credit for establishing the country that you live in? The perks that you have thus far so enjoyed? Your very quality of life? Sure. Liberal ideas are responsible for those things. You'd recognize these facts if you knew your history. This includes the new deal era by the way. Learning the difference between classical liberalism and new deal liberalism might help. Either way, before you go about spouting off with "but what about the Japanese internment camps", I'll wait for you to denounce the Trump administration for their nefarious treatment of migrants, and the turning a blind eye to the actions of white supremacists. So spare us your self righteous indignation.

As an FYI, two wrongs don't make a right.





Good for you. You've enjoyed a life of privilege, dear white straight christian male, not granted to other demographics. Perhaps a little introspection and empathy is in order. Until you've made a concerted effort to walk a mile in the shoes of those who are less propitious it is safe to say that you don't care enough to know a hell of a lot about these things on which you speak.

Enough Already

I see you're still shoveling your PC BS like a good little leftist stooge.

Hypocrites like yourself forget Democrats birthed the Ku Klux Klan. Lincoln freed the slaves, no thanks to Democrats. Then they came up with Jim Crow laws to "keep blacks in their place". Democrats continued their racism with Democrat Senator Robert "KKK" Byrd (Grand Cyclops Of the West Virginia Ku Klux Klan) leading the charge against the equal rights amendment. He opposed this multiple times. By almost unanimous straight party vote Democrats voted against it each time until it finally passed in spite of their sanctimonious excuses. They also corralled much of the black race in modern day plantations, or as you like to think of them, "humanitarian" housing projects. They added food stamps and other welfare perks so they wouldn't have to work and be mixing in with white Democrats. Democrats also pushed, (and still do today) planned parenthood, founded by Margaret Sanger, an avowed racist who believed in eugenics to control the black race. They placed their abortion clinics conveniently close to black neighborhoods and housing projects so as to hold down reproduction as much as they could. It continues to this day. In some years more blacks are aborted in NYC (another Democrat stronghold) than are born. You Democrats must be very proud of your accomplishments. Tell us more about how you champion the rights of the oppressed. We all enjoy a good laugh.

Koheleth

Remind me again as to which party the white supremacists loons currently have an affinity for?



This is rich coming from you Eric... oh sorry, EA. Someone who has had previous opportunities to denounce their adherence to the white nationalist/supremacists ideology, yet did not, pretending to care about the plight of non-white persons. Sure bud. Keep on pursuing whatever avenues you think are going to lead to your destination.



You and your like minded pals are the epitome of that old adage, 'what the American public doesn't or won't know, is exactly what makes them the American public.'
