Liberals Hate America

Filed under: Democratic Idiocy,YouTube — Psycheout @ 1:28 am

It’s official. Watch this video. I can’t say much more than that. Evan Sayet (a former liberal) explains how modern liberals think at the Heritage Foundation. And it’s not pretty. It is a bit long (47:56), but it will chill you to the bone. I encourage lurking liberals to watch this as well. It will make you cringe if you have a soul. If you do, you’ll probably become a conservative.

A big tip of the hat to Leo Pusateri at Blogs for Bush.

  1. Wow, that just about says it all, doesn’t it? Great find. Great speech. Liberals totally suck.

  2. If you really want to know what liberals think, why not ask them?

    No, let’s rely on the Heritage Foundation! Well, enjoy your straw men.

  3. I’d ask liberals what they think but they don’t. And when they try, they lie.

    I bet “Xenos” didn’t even watch the clip.

  4. This guy really tells it like it is. Liberals are trying to erode America from within. I’m showing this one to my family.

  5. I will admit to sampling the clip. From what I could tell it was nothing but specious nonsense leavened with inspired flashes of inanity.

    I likes the part about liberals being ‘a hundred million degrees wrong on every issue.’ That is obviously innumerate (What is one hundred million divided by 360? Why must I do math to figure out what he meant?), but more importantly is just silly. Every issue?

    Of course, Hollywood is liberalism, isn’t it, so anything selected from Hollywood you do not like can be designated to represent all liberals, can’t it? This is what, polemics for dummies?

    I could go on, but why bother. If you saps think this is incisive, there is not much point.

    From end to end the speech is fallacious logic and fifth-grade rhetoric. Culture of indescriminateness? WTF?? But then again, if I am a liberal, and I am always in every single way wrong, wrong, wrong, I must be wrong if I say that every thirty second bit I sampled was full of teh stupid. I guess you smarty-pants have me all tied up with your super-logic, because if I found it dumb that means it must be brilliant. Got me!

  7. The irony is they’d be first up against the wall if the Islamofascist government they openly crave came to power.

  8. It seems to me that its people who don’t have a legitimate argument that are most likely to resort to name-calling and desparate stereotyping.

    I’m a moral centrist and a political liberal. But I don’t hate this guy because he’s a conservative. I hate the way he labels people doesn’t know by their position, and will probably shoot them before he dares engage in a discussion with them. I know a lot of people on BOTH sides who do this, and I think its pathetic, and a waste of this country’s time.

    When we got attacked on 9-11, I didn’t think “we probably deserved it”. I KNOW we didn’t deserve it. Nobody deserves a terrorist attack. I believe we do have a right to retaliate/defend ourselves, but I believe we DID create the conditions that caused the attack. That is our fault. We need to understand what those conditions were, and make intelligent decisions in the future that prevent this from happening again. THAT is the liberal position. Act intelligently, not blindly, prevent the same mistakes that caused our misfortune.

    Please, if you take anything from this video, as I did, understand that its this guy’s attitude that will breed only politics of hatred and division, rather than of understanding and unity. We need to come together and understand our own citizens and lead from the center, rather than the fringe. We need to protect democracy here before we can attempt to foster democracy in a foreign country.

    And most of all, we need to stop the labeling, and stop following out of fear.

  9. It seems to me that its people who don’t have a legitimate argument that are most likely to resort to name-calling and desparate stereotyping.”

    Typical leftist blather. The record shows that liberals always resort to the ad hominem first, last, and forever as their debating tactic of choice.

    “I’m a moral centrist and a political liberal.”

    What is a “moral centrist”, anyway? Is that something like a moral relativist, under a different name?

    “But I don’t hate this guy because he’s a conservative. I hate the way he labels people [he] doesn’t know by their position, and will probably shoot them before he dares engage in a discussion with them. I know a lot of people on BOTH sides who do this, and I think its pathetic, and a waste of this country’s time.”

    I know a lot of liberals who do it, but I seriously doubt a well-respected commenter and comedian would shoot his sister before discussing the issues with her. What a ridiculous thing to say!

    “When we got attacked on 9-11, I didn’t think “we probably deserved it”. I KNOW we didn’t deserve it. Nobody deserves a terrorist attack. I believe we do have a right to retaliate/defend ourselves,”

    Agreed, until you say:

    “but I believe we DID create the conditions that caused the attack. That is our fault. We need to understand what those conditions were, and make intelligent decisions in the future that prevent this from happening again.”

    America’s only crime was being free. As a city on the hill, a bastion of liberty, a beacon to the oppressed and downtrodden peoples of the world, we naturally attracted the animosity of evildoers who despise these values. Islamofascists, who thrive on an ideology of fear and wickedness, felt threatened by the existence of a nation whose primary export is freedom. They acted accordingly, and in keeping with their typical tactics of cowardice and evil. That’s the story of 9/11, and the only condition our nation contributed to this Clintonian disaster was the very openness that enables terrorists and their liberal abettors to besmirch us.

    “Please, if you take anything from this video, as I did, understand that its this guy’s attitude that will breed only politics of hatred and division, rather than of understanding and unity. We need to come together and understand our own citizens and lead from the center, rather than the fringe. We need to protect democracy here before we can attempt to foster democracy in a foreign country.”

    The center supports America. The fringe does not. It’s very simple. That fringe may oscillate in size from 5-10% of the population, but make no mistake about it- they hate us almost as much as Al Qaeda does, and they aren’t afraid to show it.

    “THAT is the liberal position. Act intelligently, not blindly, prevent the same mistakes that caused our misfortune.

    And most of all, we need to stop the labeling, and stop following out of fear.”

    “I agree. So, when will the America-haters stop trying to destroy our efforts to bring freedom to Iraq?

  10. […] — Sisyphus @ 8:35 am I think we’ve all learned a lot from the stellar Evan Sayet video below, and furthermore I feel that everyone in America should watch this video. It raises some […]

  11. America’s only crime was being free. As a city on the hill, a bastion of liberty, a beacon to the oppressed and downtrodden peoples of the world, we naturally attracted the animosity of evildoers who despise these values. Islamofascists, who thrive on an ideology of fear and wickedness, felt threatened by the existence of a nation whose primary export is freedom.

    This is just so much moral vanity. And extreme folly, to boot. Consider, for example, to the roots of Iranian anger against the US. As far as they are concerned, we did not export freedom to Iran, but tyranny. They resent us for something we did to them, and if the shoe had been on the other foot they would have done the same thing to us, and we would hate them for it. I am not saying the Iranians are right, only that if you ignore their understanding of history you can’t understand what motivates them, and you are not likely to succeed against them diplomatically, or even militarily.

    So, when will the America-haters stop trying to destroy our efforts to bring freedom to Iraq?

    Ask the White House, not its relatively powerless opponents. Bush destroyed the efforts, through negligence, reckless indifference, and incompetence.

  12. “As far as they are concerned, we did not export freedom to Iran, but tyranny. They resent us for something we did to them”

    We saved them from the Communist Mossadeq, and we’ve tried to save them from the theocrats since 1979. What else have we done to them, besides help their Constitutional monarchy during the intervening years?

    “I am not saying the Iranians are right, only that if you ignore their understanding of history you can’t understand what motivates them, and you are not likely to succeed against them diplomatically, or even militarily.”

    Last time I checked, we were the ones able to beat Saddam in about 30 days. He held off Iran for 8 long years. I guess that shows the relative power scales between America and Iran, anyway.

  13. Interesting. Xenos admits to only sampling the video yet proves its premise with every comment. Ironic, isn’t it? It would be funny if it weren’t so sad.

  14. We need to understand what those conditions were, and make intelligent decisions in the future that prevent this from happening again.

    Will it, though? Can you guarantee that?

    What a lot of people on the left seem to be unwilling to recognize is this: we could talk, and negotiate, and study, and analyze, and explore every single possible non-warfare-based option, up until we were blue in the face, and we will STILL be the target of terrorists.

    Nations can be reasoned with, or negotiated with, or intimidated by coalitions of nations into not doing anything stupid. But, like it or not, there are individuals out there who do not answer to any government, and who hate our society for everything that it is. Their belief system is the polar opposite of our own, and our beliefs, and societal attitudes enrage them. There are people out there who want to see us dead for no other reason than where we live.

    Do we deserve that? Absolutely not. Will understanding them make any difference? No, it won’t. Do we stand a chance of changing their minds? When everything we do and everything that we ARE offends them to the core? Exactly.

    So what to do? Stick our heads in the sand and hope they don’t succeed, or work militarily to make sure that these people are never able to organize themselves into any sort of effective threat?

  16. The only thing I can respond to these kind of logical fallacies from one of the so called conservative “think tanks” that was all so rah rah rah about how soon we would WIN lol the war in Iraq back in 2003. Now of course the country is ensnared in a quagmire of death and destruction beyond comprehension… I can only say “WHY DO NEO-CONS HATE AMERICA SO MUCH???
