I am an idiot because...
By J.J. Jackson
So let us begin. What follows are the actual comments of actual liberals. I am an idiot, according to liberals, because:
" ... [I] actually think that the average person is smart enough to control their own lives! Wake up! People are dumb!"
" ... [I] want everyone to embrace capitalism ..."
" ... [I think] that people should be able to keep the money they earn! No one earns any money! Any money 'earned' is just money stolen from someone else!"
" ... [I think] that hard work is actually rewarded by those greedy SOBs on Wall Street!!!!!!!"
" ... [I] foolishly believe that there is actually some superiority to voluntarily giving money to charity compared to giving it to government to help the poor."
" ... [I] don't accept that President Obama is clearly the greatests (sic) President living or dead to ever lead this lost country called America back to greatness."
" ... [all I] have done is trash ACORN when without them no African Americans would have the right to vote!"
" ... [I] don't understand how great health care is in countries like Cuba! Instead [I am] too busy pushing [my] capitalist and anti-American agenda!"
" ... [I] refuse to accept how utterly right wing Adolf Hilter and his band of <em>national socailists</em> (sic) were!" (emphasis mine)
" ... [I] support the bloodsucking and evil Jews in theri (sic) conquest to take over the world and enslave all perpsons (sic) of color."
" ... [I] do not believe that people should have a right to other people's wealth in order to better their own lives and pay for their right to health ccare (sic) which has only been stripped by the greedy who run this nation."
" ... [I] actually quote the Constitutioon (sic) as IF THAT REALLY MEANS ANYTHING SINCE IT WAS WRITTEN BY EVIL WHITE SLAVEHOLDERS AND IS NOTHING BYT (sic) LIES!"
" ... [I] cannot begin to understand how rought (sic) it is to be poor in America! It is WORSE than being poor in AFRICA by any means of measure!"
" ... [I] stand up against pedophilia when there is absolutely nothing wrong with an adult having sex with underage and teenage children! EVERYONE WHO HAS READ THE RESEARCH KNOWS THAT ADULT-CHILD SEX IS BENEFICIAL TO HTE (sic) CHILD!"
" ... [I] believe that the war on terror is something other than what it is which is a war for oil and to conquer the brown man!"
" ... [I] refuse to except the clear and dominant evidence the 9/11 was in fact an inside job perpetrated by the Bush Administration to rally America into a war of oppression in the Middle East."
" ... [I] continue to spread the lie that the Democrats are the majority in both houses of Congress when [I] know damn well that the Republicans hold both houses and have been filibustering everying (sic) President obamma (sic) has tried to do to make America great again."
" ... [I] keep spreading the conservative media's lies about Hugo Chavez and ignoring what good he is accomplishing in Venezuela by throwing his political opposition in jail to keep them from hindering his progress and returning the ill gotten gains of the greedy to the people."
" ... [I am] so ardent a believer that citizens have a 'right' to defend themselves against criminals and even those criminals perpetrating assualt (sic) on them and even suggest that it ok to 'murder' those criminals to stop them when everyone with a brain knows that it is a blatant disregard for the human rights of the criminal to allow such hideous acts."
So basically I am an idiot because I believe in liberty, free markets, the right to self-defense, the repulsiveness of child molestation, promote the truth that Democrats control both houses of Congress and the White House, dislike left wing thugs and tyrants, tell the truth about their governments, read and quote the Constitution, think people are smart enough to make their own decisions, believe that people should be able to work hard and keep the fruits of that labor without forced confiscation for government social programs, support fighting miscreants stuck in the 15th Century, don't think that Jews are the most evil force on the planet, disagree with President Obama, discuss corruption by groups that just happen to be associated with the President, and do not accept the premise that the United States is inherently evil because at one time in the past parts of the country engaged in the horrific and unconscionable act of race-based slavery?
I just want to make sure that we are clear as to why it is me, and not you folks, that are the "idiots."
