How “tolerant” far left liberals in NYC treat conservatives

Posted by: ST on September 28, 2008 at 12:09 pm

Documented, but not surprising:

A description of the video:

A Pro-McCain march on the Upper West Side in Manhattan on Sunday, September 21, 2008. A group of McCain-Palin supporters dare to march through the Upper West Side – infidels in the liberal Mecca. Local “progressives” boo, jeer, and flip fingers at them with a rage they never display even to this country’s enemies. We would like them to take a look at themselves in this video and maybe learn a few things about the human condition that the academia has obviously left out.

That assumes that the jerks who harassed the McCain-Palin supporters all along their march have the ability to learn from their mistakes in the first place. Show of hands how many people think they possess that ability?

I didn’t think so.

    Not surprising, indeed! Have you ever clicked on some of those headlines on the CNN ticker? Check out the comments that come after the stories!! Those people are wackos!

    Most of the comments are just plain juvenile name callings against McCain and Palin. A few are plain ignorant of the current reality we live in and maybe 2% are valid, intelligent, comments. What would you expect of the Clinton News Network? Priceless!! I also noticed a lot of the “stories” on the ticker are negative about McCain/Palin. I have yet to see any of the stories question what Obama Bin Biden lie about or even Biden’s many ignorant gaffes.

    Did you all see the tents on the side of the avenue where they were walking? They showed up during one of the endless street fairs that line different parts of different avenues in the Spring and Fall.

    I point this out in order to show you that the street was not set aside for their parade. This was not a scheduled event that required an NYPD permit.

    That doesn’t excuse the rudeness of their opponents, of course.

    I just do not understand.

    These people with their fingers in the air, angry at the marchers.. do they not understand that they oppose all those whom have given them their liberty and the right to dissent? What is the ‘disconnect’ here.. what is wrong. Why do these people conduct themselves this way?

    I might add that they emulate the main stream media perfectly.

    This is insanity. How have we come to this? What is the endgame here? Socialism, poverty, and the end of enterprise?

    I am just astounded.

    I have met one honest liberal in my life.
    It was in high school, freshman year. She actually said, “I never claimed to be open-minded.”

    ‘Nuff said.

    The following is a summary that will be hopefully brief , succinct .

    A kind of outline, if you will, of the sort of social outllook that is an alternative to the contemporary social /political ideologies that whether “liberal” —in the fake contemporary sense or conservative ….or libertarian party or moderate . So much of the doctrines that come from both so-called liberals , conservatives, moderates , and libertarians —is incongruous (riddled with weird internal contradictions …some direct others indirect contradictions) and/or superfluous .

    (The superflous adds nothing of intrinsic good to a civilization) . So to get to the main topic of what this present essay is all about—let me just briiefly describe the positions that are the elements of a sound , reasonable, wholesome outllook on life and ideological matters .
    Here below are many of the positions of the reasonable approach to societal matters and politics .

    The reasonable outlook is :

    Totally *against* abortion on demand (with exceptions if the child in question could be likely to be horribly deformed to the point of suffering if carried to term , ect ) .

    Abortion does not liberate women and unborn women also should have rights . Abortion on demand is totally incongruous with the ethos of compassion and nurturance that liberals are supposed to support .

    Favors generous social programs for the poor, and is on the side of the poor , downtrodden .Pro-union .

    Opposes subsidies for wealthy coprorations. If a corporation cannot run its business without goverment sponsored corporate welfare handouts and bailouts , than the CEOS and company president ought to go back to business school and start over .

    Supports clean , renewable and laternative energy .

    Fervently and extremely in favor of preserving wilderness in all its beauty. Fervently and extremely in favor of clean water, soil, air ect. Beautiful landscapes (like forest, deserts, mountains, praries, oceansides) edify and uplifts a nation. Ugly , mundane Mc Mansions and yuppie subdivisions do *not* edify, they do *not* instill a sense of the civic commonweal in the minds of citizens …they foster instead tedium of mind and vapidness ..

    Supports wholesome family farmers, as well as organic farmers and their wholesome vegetables and products , instead of the hi tech junk food offered by souless companies like Monsanto, and other junk food companies .

    Supports the abolition of income tax in favor of a national sales tax and/or other ways of raising revenue for the federal goverment .

    Is totally against racism, anti-semitism and/or any form of maligning or oppreession of ethnic groups . Pro-civil rights .

    Supports equal rights for women / equal pay for equal work…is totally intolernat of wife beating . Is totally against the exploitation of women by the evil sexist and ghastly adult film industry, though does not favor censorship .

    Is totally against liberated sex , totally against sexual promiscuity “being open about sexuality” . After all, such tendencies are contrary to true humanitarian, nurturing sentiment –such sexually liberated proclivities foster a crass , murky, acquisitive, shallow- minded approach to living .

    Totally *against* lurid , sinister mass news media spectacle . Desires the mass television and television related news media to just go out of business —though it does not advocate censorship .

    Against NAFTA, GATT and all those evil globalistrade programs that erode the soverengty of nations .

    ADDENTUM : Running through all the positions above is an acknowledgement that relativism/postmodernism/ ambivalent thinking is totally wrong… without even any partial merit. Rejects the inchoate desire that there be any sort of balance between extreme stances in ideology ; rejects any middle ground between that which is inherently contrary to virtue and that which is intriniscally virtuous. It is based on the acknowledgement that intrinisc virtue should be taken to extremes –NOT tempered nor balanced with a little selling-out .

    It is based on the acknowledgement that intrinsic virtue when taken to extremes does NOT somehow become a vice.

    Rejects the weird non-consistant doctrine of “the golden middle” ! Acknowledges that taking virtue to extremes takes careful analysis —and that requires strictly linear thinking . Acknowledges that it is a lazy mind that *refuses* to split hairs . Is totally *agaiinst* any equivocation in thought .

    An ointment without any flies is long overdue . The word ‘purist’ is NOT a dirty word !
