Yeah, that's why all us "liberals" (I'm not a liberal, I'm a socialist) read and watch Fox News, WND and all the other propaganda stations of the Republican Party. Because we don't like those other opinions.
And who that hell is complaining all the time of the other side using big words? It sure as fuck isn't us talking about Glenn Beck.

Most modern political philosophers are left-wing. Probably the most influential is John Rawls, as liberal as they come. Care to sift through his work a bit? I'll wait.
Also, it should be noted that it was the Republicans who recently put out a party platform officially opposing the teaching of critical thinking skills in public schools. Now either those Republicans are somehow liberals, or you're full of shit, and I think we all know there hasn't been a liberal Republican in decades.
Lastly: I read articles by conservatives all the time. Great way to prevent overeating, since they make my stomach hurt. Not my head though.

And what if I don't like Islam, which I don't?
10/18/2012 3:56:31 AM
Daxx has never met a liberal.
If he had he would know that...
They tend to do extensive research (reading the details).
They read EVERYTHING, and if told to read something in particular, they investigate why. (who tells them what to read anyway?)
They tend to be leery of Islam, because it is somewhat authoritarian.
They tend to not hump little boys, because that requires harming little boys.

"You people believe everything you're told!" rings pretty hollow coming from people who would believe Ted Bundy if he claimed to have seen Obama eating a baby.

As it happens I don't like any religions, Leighton.
Does this make me a fundy liberal?
10/18/2012 4:00:19 AM
Liberals have an Imam? No one told me.
10/18/2012 4:03:42 AM
You make my head hurt, and it isn't because of how many words you used; more the idiotic way in which you used them.
10/18/2012 4:18:51 AM
Holy shit, this guy is so smug about being full of shit he rivals ann coulter.
Also that is some truly weapons grade projection going on there.

Two in one day. This deserves an extra large editorial comment.
10/18/2012 5:34:59 AM
Conservatives don't read the details. All those words makes their brains hurt, and besides, they only believe what they have been told to believe by Fox News and talk radio. Anything else is "liberal propaganda" that might make them think, and we are back to their heads hurting.It's why they like Christianity. The preacher tells them what to believe, and what to hate, in the name of love, and they can shut down the forebrain and go back to humping little boys while calling for anti-gay legislation.

Liberals tend not to "like" Islam. They just don't
hate it with the same mouth-frothing frenzy that fundamentalist Christians do. Plus, "shiny mirror" syndrome.
10/18/2012 6:38:01 AM
Yeah! And liberals also smell bad and they like fucking chickens and they poop on the sidewalk...and...and...they're entirely made of straw!
Seen here, a typical liberal:
Oh yeah, and look how fat liberals are! That liberal is like 20 times the size of the true American patriot next to him!
10/18/2012 7:14:04 AM
No, no, it's the catholics who hump little boys, the muslims are the ones who kill women for getting raped. Please try to get your bigotry right in future.
If you spent less time on your knees in a church and more time on your butt in a library, you wouldn't look quite so stupid.
10/18/2012 7:56:14 AM
"The Imam tells them what to believe, and what to hate, in the name of love, and they can shut down the forebrain and go back to humping little boys."
Which is certainly nothing like fundamentalist Christianity, nosiree. Or does the phrase "hate the sin, love the sinner" mean nothing to you?
10/18/2012 8:02:33 AM
I thought, for a second, you were going to write something coherent.
What an idiotic boob I am.
10/18/2012 8:13:36 AM
That's why you'll never find a site where all the stupid wingnut and fundie comments are collected from across the internet and roundly mocked. Such a site would be impossible for us timid, liberal wimps who are unable to stand the sight of a rugged, manly conservatard argument without wetting ourselves, right?.

Funny. I'm quite liberal & I despise Islam. I also think rather poorly of anyone that preys on kids. People who make shit up aren't high on my list either.
I love the homophobia coming from a guy with a Greek-sounding name.
10/18/2012 8:32:54 AM
Wow, that's rich coming from a supporter of an ideology that deals in anti-intellectualism and truthiness.
10/18/2012 9:09:59 AM
Wait, liberals like religion now? Oooh, I see, you're a moron. Got it. Go join the Taliban and y'all can hate on the modern world together.
10/18/2012 9:12:23 AM
Islamic Terror and Christian Terror are two sides to the same coin. Abusing religion to make the gullible do things for you.
BTW, Indonesia is predominately muslim, but had/has a female leader.

Daxxenos here is a very impressive scientific accomplishment. The first projector capable of speech.

As I'm a socialist, not a liberal (even though I am aware that to these people, everything to the left of Bill O'Reilly is liberal), I don't know whether they read the details or not, but I would guess they do as they mostly seem well-informed.
I love words, and I read a lot, both fiction and non-fiction, and my brain seldom hurts from reading. Watching horrible tent-revival-like political conventions with American politicians tend to make my brain hurt, though.
Nobody has ever told me what to read, beside school work of course. Even when I was young, my parents took us to the library, where we were allowed to pick whatever books we wanted from the children and young-adult room.
I don't particularly like Islam, any more than I like Christianity. They seem pretty similar to me, and none of them seems based in reality. I don't think I have ever met an Imam, and I don't really hate anything, although the feeling for people who deliberately hurt other people, physically, mentally or financially, and people who limit other people's human rights, lies very close to hatred.
I would never hump little boys, I prefer grown-up men, who know what they are doing, and for the last 25 years I have only humped my husband.
10/18/2012 11:53:08 AM
@ Swede, well said, I agree entirely (apart from the fully grown men thing!).
10/18/2012 1:18:20 PM
In the world of conservatives this is considered a telling observation.
