The Hypocrisy of the Liberal Tolerance Argument
The Hypocrisy of the Liberal Tolerance Argument
For years now, conservatives have been painted as bigots and homophobes. We are intolerant. We want to control everyone and everything and we are just horrible people who do nothing but hate. We have tried to defend ourselves, to offer rational and logical discourse why these accusations are incorrect, but it really does no good.
Here’s the cold, hard truth: Liberals are the nastiest, meanest, most ruthlessly cruel people out there. They talk about tolerance like they have a handle on the idea; maybe like they even invented it. Kind of like Al Gore invented the internet. But disagree with them and suddenly you are the object of some of the most unhinged, disgusting, vile reactions you’ll ever see. We already know the stories of pathetic freaks who call for Sarah Palin to be murdered or who harass Ann Coulter or spout disgusting names at Michelle Bachmann. You might think “well, that’s because they’re famous, and they bring out the crazies.” Not true. I can vouch for it, because I’ve been seeing it personally for years—and I’m anything but famous.
In eleven years of blogging, I’ve argued with conservatives, argued with RINOs, argued with moderates and liberals and people who thought Jesus was a gay Muslim. I’ve debated creationism and abortion and gay marriage and capital punishment and illegal immigration and every other issue you could possibly think of. Never, in all of that time, have I ever been treated with such contempt and hatred as I was by liberals—and not just little wanna-be internet thugs. By people with college degrees, with successful careers, with families and small children they kiss goodnight. By people who claim to be adults, who claim to be good, respectable members of society. They’re not.
I have had my previous blog hacked, received threatening emails, waded through thousands of comments calling me things I cannot repeat here, and treated like absolute trash….because I disagreed.
Two men managed to get themselves added to my hotel room in DC a few years ago when I was planning to attend a conference there. When I called to confirm my reservation I was told that “Yes, we have you, Frank, and John listed as confirmed. They said they would be checking in right at 4 to pick up keys.” This was two days after receiving emails saying that I would be beheaded if I visited DC…because of my support for Israel’s war with Jordan at the time.
For years, a Google search of my name turned up a site named Thinking Meat, which spent its time focused on calling me and other conservative writers “racist cretins,” “homophobic lesbian trash” and other interesting epithets…because I wrote conservative viewpoints.
I’ve been called a moron because I believe in God, and much worse because I advocate that children have the right to survive pregnancy. I’ve been told to drop dead, kill myself in horrific ways, and that I don’t deserve to speak; one liberal woman told me that I should have my mouth sewn shut.
Last night in a debate on Facebook, I was told the following:
“You deserve to get raped with a pitchfork, mutilated and left for dead by the side of the road. You’re a stupid c—, and you don’t deserve to live. All you right-wing motherf—-s think you can tell people what they can think or have. Shut the f— up because you don’t know s— and I wish someone would just kill you.”
What ungodly, horrific insult did I pay this man? I offered a point-by-point logical analysis of why he is not owed healthcare, and what his own responsibilities are if he expects a “living wage.” And I can assure you that is not the worst thing I’ve been told.
I’m done playing this game. I’m done attempting to bring logic to the chaos, and I’m done shrugging it off.
Liberals claim to be loving and tolerant. They want peace and equality and fairness, so they say. In reality, they are the most fascist, controlling, foul-mouthed, ridiculous caricatures of “tolerance” you can imagine. In their world, tolerance means they “speak for all women,” and you just shut up. In their fantasy, they tell you what you can drink, what you can eat, how you can raise your child, what you can say or think. If they had their way, you wouldn’t go to church, wouldn’t be able to teach your children moral values, because they have none. Everything is okay, everything—no matter how disgusting or filthy or lewd—is to be celebrated and applauded, and if you don’t, then you should be silenced. Oh, and by the way…you might be a racist, homophobic cretin, but they’re totally okay with taking your money and telling you that you need to pick up the tab for everything. They want high wages for flipping burgers. They want free medical care and free food and free cash and clothing and housing and education and oh, they want you to pay for their sex lives too. You don’t get a say in anything they do, but by Jove, you better fork that wallet over, you evil capitalist.
They claim they want equality, but in their world, equality means men are emasculated and ridiculed and seen as a bunch of rapist wolves just waiting to prey on the princesses, and women are given carte blanche to make any stupid, irrational, unsafe, immoral choice they want with no financial repercussions, no loss of societal respect, no responsibility for those choices. Show me a liberal woman, and I’ll show you a whiny, entitled brat who thinks the word “empowerment” means “gimme free stuff and no consequences.” Show me a liberal man, and I’ll show you a milquetoast, nutless wonder who hides behind his pseudo-intellectualism because he doesn’t have the balls to BE a man.
Liberalism IS hypocrisy. It is corruption and control and slanted, fawning media more interested in performing sexual favors for the administration than actually doing their job. It is theft from those who work, to shower free stuff on those who don’t. It is sympathy for the monster on death row who raped and murdered women while screaming about rape culture with no sense of irony. It is claiming to be “pro-women” while turning a blind eye as hundreds of thousands of them are raped and stoned and oppressed in Muslim countries. It is claiming to speak for all women while murdering millions of them in the womb. It is demanding that you and I give our nation up to hordes of illegals, while refusing to help the veterans who bought them the freedom to be as stupid as they are. It is devoid of logic and rational thought, and it is everything that liberty-loving patriots would give their lives to defend against.
Conservatives who truly believe in liberty, in the right of citizens to live in peace without interference from government, sit there and allow liberals to dictate the terms of our society. We did nothing when God was banished from schools, and those who believe in Him were not even allowed to quietly pray over their food at lunch. We allowed the brutal murder of children to become so commonplace that it is now demanded as a “right” that should be funded by taxpayers. We let liberals encroach on our freedoms, our faith, and our way of life. We let them demand more and more until we cannot even see the skeleton of what was once the greatest nation on earth. We have even been informed that words that once meant things like “happy” or “stunted” are now co-opted, and you’re not allowed to say them. Rainbows belong to the gay community. Coexist…or we’ll destroy you.
Stop letting hypocrites determine the course of this nation. Stop letting people with no morals dictate what yours are. Stop kowtowing in your speech and your actions. Stop caring what liberals think. You’re not their slaves. You’re not subject to them. They don’t own you.
…or do they?
