I’ve written many articles on the intense hatred that liberals have against anyone who doesn’t walk in lock-step with their beliefs. Of course, liberals love to accuse non-liberals of hate and do it on a regular basis. If you are against the current president’s policies, you hate the current president because he’s black. If you’re against giving illegal aliens benefits and believe they should be deported to their country of origin, you hate immigrants. By the way, they fail to distinguish between those who come here legally and follow the rules and those who come here illegally, breaking the law. If you question entitlement programs that were implemented to allegedly help the poor, but don’t seem to be working, you hate the poor. When an individual or group of individuals make accusations and point fingers, it’s generally a good bet that they are really the guilty ones, instead of the ones at which they’re pointing fingers.
The liberals hated George W. Bush and, along with the current president, blamed him for everything during the first 6-1/2 months of the Obama presidency. I guess even the liberals knew that was getting old. Now, it seems, they have another entity to blame for everything and that entity of Fox News. And that’s laughable because Fox News is a media outlet, it doesn’t make policy. It is the number one cable news network in the nation, having the most viewers. And we all know that liberals call Fox News watchers really bad names. I’ve been called all of those names before. Morons, delusional, and idiots are three of the names liberals call Fox News watchers. Liberals have also indicated that Fox News has brain-washed its viewers. So, liberals, let me pose a question to you. If Fox News watchers are idiots and can be brainwashed into conservative thought, why did the current President get elected twice? If we’re all brainwashed idiots via Fox News, wouldn’t we have voted for the Republican candidate?
One of the milder names that liberals call Fox News is “Faux News.” I’m not going to say much about that because I’ve been knows to call CNN the “Clinton News Network” or the “Communist News Network.” I’ve also called MSNBC, “PMSNBC.” We all have names for things we don’t like. With the exception of the above, however, I have never put those terms in print. As a political blogger I should maintain my professionalism and make every effort to do so.
I can honestly say that I’ve never called CNN, MSNBC, or network news viewers names. I have called for the elimination of NPR because it is a liberal leaning media outlet and I don’t particularly like my tax dollars being used for speech I don’t agree with. NPR viewers say that the programming is excellent. Well, if NPR is so great, then it should be able to go private and sell advertising like any other private media outlet. When I said this to a friend of a liberal friend, he indicated that only the extremely intelligent and elite were capable or appreciating NPR. In other words, I’m an unenlightened oaf and of course we all know that. To that I say, “If you love NPR so much, then maybe you and those enlightened few who are capable of appreciating it should create a subscription based channel. “ The friend of the friend informed me that he was just a school teacher and didn’t make a lot of money. So, he expects me and everyone else to pay for something that he loves because he and his elitist friends can’t afford it. It’s sad, but that’s how liberals think. I don’t understand it, but then again I’m an unenlightened oaf.
Of all these liberals who hate Fox News, I often wonder how many of them have actually sat down and watched Fox News. I was having a back and forth on Facebook with a liberal friend and when I informed him that the senior news anchor for Fox was a liberal, he said he didn’t know that Fox had “hard news.” H-E-L-L-O! This person disparages Fox News and it appears he has never watched it.
During George W. Bush’s presidency, I never heard him make disparaging remarks about those American who didn’t support his policies. He recognized and respected the rights of all Americans to disagree. During the Iraq war, he often met with those who were against the war, especially those who had loved-ones in Iraq. Hillary Clinton calls conservatives “wingnuts,” hence the name of this blog. President Bill Clinton once said that conservatives had “that extra chromosome,” denigrating those with Down syndrome.
Of course, the current president frequently denigrates and belittles those who don’t agree with his policies. He has even asked his supporters to keep track of those who disagree with him. And we all know what he thinks about Fox News and Fox News watchers. I never heard President George W. Bush disparage certain media outlets and their viewers. Having said that, President Bush didn’t care for the media and presidents generally don’t.
Bill O’Reilly, of the O’Reilly Factor on Fox News, has commented many times about the hatred that the left has for those who don’t agree with them. Bill has also indicated that there is hatred on the right and there certainly is. Bill, however, indicates that there is much more on the left. That has been my observation also. Yes, there is hatred toward liberals by conservatives, but it is much more prevalent on the left. I’m sure that liberals will say I’m lying and call me names. Again, I think I’ve been called everything there is to be called by liberals. Maybe I should have a contest to see if a liberal can come up with a name to call me that I haven’t yet been called.
