How Hating Republicans
Became So Fashionable

Liberal Discontent and the Spies Next Door

Harry Stein - June 26th, 2009 - Wall Street Journal

"Occasionally, he would voice frustration with U.S. policies," noted the Washington Post of Walter Kendall Myers, the aging New Leftist recently arrested with his wife, Gwendolyn, on charges of spying for Cuba. "But to his liberal neighbors in Northwest D.C.," the story continued, "it was nothing out of the ordinary. 'We were all appalled by the Bush years,' one said."


But here's the thing: What makes them clichés is that there are so many others like them. In left-of-center precincts across America, from the Upper West Side to the studio lot where Sean Penn is filming his latest movie, and including countless college campuses in between, Fidel Castro is even now regarded with understanding and, yes, something like affection. True enough, some have qualms about his abuse of political prisoners and, even more so, his treatment of gays and people suffering from AIDS. But, overall, people have a soft spot for the guy who not only took on the big, bad U.S., but did so with such élan. Castro would certainly be welcome at any dinner party -- as opposed to, say, a Republican!

Democrats have become the party of hating America. They deny it. They insist they are patriots. They actually argue that hating and condemning America is the essence of patriotism. To them it is. Yet when it comes down to it, the actual proof they hate America is their support for anyone, no matter how evil, who hates America. Castro. Chavez. Ahmadenejiad. Jung-Il. Name a leftist who hates America and they can explain why there is justification in their hate. They have memorized the reasons that America is wrong.

That is why I have stopped wasting my time. If you are a Democrat you are evil. I will not argue with you any more. The secessionist movements that are springing up all over America are proof positive that most people who love America have given up hope in saving freedom while they are part of a nation with such evil people running it. We want out.
