The following is a response to sammy-the-douche’s blog “the evils of liberalism”. I was randomly searching xanga and found this off-his-meds masterpiece (which I had to log out to read since I was blocked by mister freedom and apple pie here for disagreeing with him), and I figured since I haven’t done a “disagreeing with ignorant bullshit” response blog in awhile, what the hell. So here goes:
“Liberals are always trying to corrupt, demonize, and destroy this nation and what it truly stands for. Liberals try to take God out of society, out of government, and of course out of the schools.”
One of the things this country stands for is the first amendment which says you can’t use the government to promote or limit any religious view. So apparently fighting tirelessly to uphold the constitution and the bill of rights is “destroying this nation and what it truly stands for”. I guess what it truly stands for is your opinion, not all of that founding fathers and laws and freedom stuff.
“Why? Because they hate America and wish to see it fall into a despotic socialist state.”
Socialism is not despotic, authoritarian socialism is. We have always been socialist to some degree, that does not mean communist – and most atheists in the US are not communists. But then anyone who isn’t christian in your mind is evil so yeah…
“Liberals are the servants of Satan, the scourges of the Anti-Christ and abominable tyrants.”
On the weekends we also temp for the easter bunny.
“They like to teach us that there is no God, and that we somehow came out of something known as Darwinism, one of the grossest lies ever fed to the American people.”
I like how it’s “something” called darwinism – he doesn’t even know what it is, but he knows from a position of total ignorance that it’s a lie.
“Liberalism is inherently linked to atheism, and it has turned our noble nation into a place of division and despotism.”
Actually it began the revolution and freed the slaves. This is because “liberal” when used correctly, does not describe any particular policy or ideology, but rather a desire to improve the nation through positive change, whereas conservative (when used accurately) means a general attitude of wanting to keep things the way they are. You, ironically, are liberal (I would even say radically so) since you want to change the living shit out of the country and make it in your own image. So I guess by your own logic you’re an atheist : (
“I submit to you, my readers, that liberalism is the evil that must be rooted out from this land. It must be taken out of our government, our way of life, and our entire nation.”
Here here! We must have a witch-hunt and purge views we disagree with in the name of freedom!
P.S. – Later we will also fuck each other silly to restore our virginity.
“Liberals hate America because America represents a shining example of freedom and liberty for all people.”
Yes, all people. Including atheists you nincompoop.
“Our Constitution never said “freedom from religion” but rather it said “freedom of religion.”
Actually it said “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”, which was then extended by the 14th amendment to apply to the states as well. So yeah. But you can’t have freedom of religion without freedom to abstain, and to not have religion injected into your life and the life of your children, and freedom to not have your pocket picked to fund evangelism. The irony is that if the shoe was on the other foot you would scream bloody murder, but it never is because atheists, muslims, jews etc tend to respect the religious freedom of christians a lot more than they respect ours. Though this may be a minority/majority thing and atheists or jews etc might be just as prone to obnoxious fascist bullshit when they control every legislative body simultaneously.
“It never stated that a president could assume dictatorial powers like Obama has, but rather that he must stay within the powers delegated to him by the Constitution.”
Not even gonna go there. Seriously, he gives me nothing to go on.
“It never said the government should override the will of the people, but rather that it should listen to the will of the people.”
Actually the reason we have a government is to avoid the rule of the mob. Yes people should have a voice and have power and they do – but the courts and the power of veto etc are a part of the checks and balances that you learned about in 8th grade history and subsequently never thought about again.
“And it never stated that the government is obliged to help lazy, shiftless people with things like welfare and federal assistance.”
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
– Preamble to the constitution.
“The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;”
– Article 1, Section 8 of the constitution.
“Rather, we ought to get off our blessed assurance and help ourselves, not expect the government to do it all for us.”
Yes, because we live in a magical land of fairies and elves where nobody ever falls between the cracks. There are no orphans, no disabled, no homeless, no one ever goes hungry in wonderful america. And our retirement benefits never disappear and even if they did we can work until we die, isn’t it wonderful?
Fortunately some of us live in the real world where problems aren’t solved by waving flags and bitching out atheists for being too much like jesus.
“Schoolchildren in America are being taught that the government is God.”
They’re really not.
“Well, tell me this, you degraded atheists–Does God say to sit on your tail and expect someone else to be your babysitter and do everything for you that you ought to do for yourself?”
Well lets see – he gave adam and eve mana from heaven and only punished man with having to toil to get food as a punishment for sin, so apparently before the fall god had designed a universal welfare system with no employment or industry (not even clothes).
“Does God say that we must allow homosexuality and other evils to flourish in this land?”
Nope, he says round the fags up and kill them you hypocritical bigot.
“Does God say that we must throw him out of our land and our society? No, he does not!”
I think perhaps you misunderstand the concept of church and state – it does not mean separation of church and the whole country. There are somewhere in the neighborhood of four hundred thousand churches in the united states freely operating and tax exempt. The myth of christian persecution is insane, especially when christians use it as an excuse to violate everyone else’s religious freedoms.
“Yet you damnable liberals say exactly that!”
“And people want to know why I hate liberals. Well, here is why!”
Because you have an overactive imagination and an under-developed education? Yupper.
