Quote# 127810

Yesterday, Religious Right pundit Michael Snyder unveiled “a list of 100 things liberals hate about America,” warning that if liberals get their way, “the country that you and I love so much today will be gone forever.”

Couldn't you just gaze at your navel for a while instead of making lists? It would be just as productive.

Edit to add: I see "religious freedom" is on the list. Methinks you do not understand the meaning of the word "freedom".

"the country that you and I love so much today will be gone forever"

By which MS means the version of the country that's in his head: the USA where the Constitution says that the country was founded by and for Bible-believing True Christians, who are to rule over everyone else in a theocracy (or theo-crazy).

You know Dolly Parton supports LGBT+ rights, including same-sex marriage, right? She's Miley Cyrus' godmother, for Christ's sake.

Liberty and freedom are synonyms, you moran.

Big Cheeseburgers
Steakhouses
McDonald’s
Coca-Cola
Fried Food
Cheesesteaks

Blatant lies!

Marriage
Family
Babies

No, it is wingnuts and their so-called "Family Values™" who want to turn marriage and family into a soulless facade, a Potemkin village with a dark secret, a perverse simulcrum of an idyll that never was, while in reality demonstrating their utter apathy, nay, contempt, of actual families over and over again.

The 10 Commandments


It's interesting how far down that is on his list, almost at the bottom.

Guns
Country Music
John Wayne
NASCAR
Big Cheeseburgers
Wal-Mart
Chuck Norris
Fried Food
Muscle Cars
Duck Dynasty
Rodeos
Harley-Davidson Motorcycles


So conservatives are basically all rednecks?

Bottled Water


Huh? I thought Perrier was considered a god-hating liberal metrosexual hipster thing?

Old-Fashioned Light Bulbs


Why aren't they crying about low density, cathode ray tube televisions, impulse dial telephones, and the like? Leaded gas, we want leaded gas back! And DDT! We're free Americans, dammit.

The Crimson Ghost

I do actually hate a great many things on your little list there, Michael. Upon reading it again, I realized that I hate even more than I first thought. I hate almost everything on it, although I am quite fond of liberty & cheeseburgers. I like muscle cars, have no beef with either Johnny Cash (he's the 1 celebrity I don't mind sharing a birthday with, can't say the same for Michael Bolton), the military or small businesses & self employment.

Your "traditional values" are toxic bullshit, your right wing politicians are assholes of the highest order & your complete embrace of everything the "Real Amurricans" like is just nonsense for the simple minded, like NASCAR & Duck Dynasty.

The country is gone; it's been sold to Russia because a fat orange man baby needed to pay off his debts to the Russian mob.

A good chunk of those things Progressives enjoy as well and many Progs think Dolly Parton is awesome!

She really is! She's a cool lady, not a bigot, very much a believer in education and promoting literacy, is fine with the LGBT community and Feminism and is generally a great lady with a big heart beneath those big boobs.

"Anyone Who Disagrees With Them"

Unlike conservatives, who welcome anyone who disagrees with them, right?

Chuck Norris? Fucking Chuck Norris? Really? Chuck Norris will be taken from you by age within the next 10-20 years. And you can't have the USA sans its citizens. Unless you're suggesting we're going to kill everyone, though I'd love to know how we'll do that with neither a military nor rule of law nor personal firearms. Do we just go door-to-door and snap necks with our bare hands? And no one fights back?

Also you don't get to double- and triple-up, as you did repeatedly.

The only thing more annoying than stupidity is inexcusably lazy stupidity.

Thinking Allowed

Israel, The 10 Commandments, and Jesus are not American...just in in case someone didn't tell you. We also don't have the monopoly on several things on the list. They can be found in other countries as well, many of which were around before The U.S.

6/4/2017 9:19:45 AM



Snyder knows a number of these are detested by the religious right or lacks awareness

@Kanna

Well, you have to remember that's the conservative Christian definition of "religious freedom" he's most likely talking about, which is "freedom for Christians - especially those of MY denomination - to do whatever we want, and to hell with everyone else."

Ugh...okay, I got some time to kill, let's do this shit.

It sounds good on paper, but don't turn it into a religion.
Who hates being able to do what they want?
Buy a dictionary, have a grown-up helper teach you what a synonym is.
The only "success" the right has ever had, is in ruining peoples' lives.
Smaller trucks get you there just as quickly, and pollute and cost less.
RAMPANT Capitalism, FTFY.
See above.
If they earned it, fine. If Daddy loaned them $14 Mil and they pissed it away on shitty casinos, fuck 'em.
Who the fuck are you thinking about? Who hates having enough to eat?
The Rule of Law does not mean, "Whatever the fucker with the R after his name wants."
I'd rather have values that work, rather than values that are old. If they need to be changed, change them.
More partial to the Canadian flag, m'self.
This is not Columbia, you are not Father Comstock, stop deifying the Founding Fathers.
Ding Ding Ding, you fucking got one right! Learn boxing if you need to defend yourself, it's good excercise.
Limited Government is limited in how it governs. You assholes want it down to just ONE person - sorry, ONE man.
Religious Freedom is for everybody, not just the Palestinian Zombie on a Stick fanclub.
I'd rather children be taught by professionals, TYVM. You wouldn't want home brain surgery, would you?
If you can afford them, fine. But there's no reason they should get better facilities than public schools.
Hey, Christian Schools are like Reservations for Assholes and Bigots. Without them, we have to let them in Genpop.
Um, no.
Ronald Reagan was a doddering old man who is indirectly responsible for 9/11.
Ding Ding Ding! Two you got right! Yes, we do indeed hate the Cheeto Tweeto, good job paying attention!
Hatred of Der Unterfuhrer Pence is the beginning of wisdom.
Dolly's okay, Willie Nelson will end a motherfucker and Johnny Cash is GOD. The rest can GTFO.
Don't pretend - even Conservatwits hate Speedy the Doped-up Divorced Dirigible.
I fucking loved The Tea Party, man. Heaven Coming Down was my jams back in the day!
Lower taxes for the people who can't afford them, yes. Not for billionaires.
Hey, if you want to burn money lighting your house, that's on you.
I hate Jesus like I hate Voldemort - they're both fictional, what's the point?
A novel who's fanclub literally worships the villain.
Arrogant busybodies who burn at the notion that "other" people exist.
Have to admit, not entirely sure what that is.
You mean Marion Wayne? Never call him 'John', he'll have no idea who you're talking to.
Alex Jones is a fucking nutter or a troll, there is nothing to not hate about either.
NASCAR is a pointless money-sink, it's hillbilly tennis that requires one only know how to make left turns.
Apparently keeping sandwiches fresh is a conservative value.
Fuck cheeseburgers, they're vile and disgusting. Give me a good Harvey's Regular anyday.
I love football. I prefer to play than watch, though. And fuck that hand-egg game Yanks play.
Clint Eastwood was a great actor, a great director, and a pretty good mayor. Shite political commentator, though
Yes, they hate marriage, that's why they think everyone should have the right to get married. [/sarc]
....you know what, I honestly thought I could do it. But it's just too much fuckwittery for me.

Jesus is fine with me. I'd like christianity even better if you fucktards would actually behave the way he suggested you should. But being a decent human being is hard. I get it.

Other than that, I am ambivalent regarding the other things on that part of the list. If you want to clog your arteries, bust your body up playing sports or get righteously fucked over by the VA, have at it.

I'd appreciate it if you'd leave George Washington, Charlie Daniels, Dolly Parton and (especially) Johnny Cash the fuck out of this. Now you're just being a cunt.

Barbie Dolls: I give literally zero fucks about Babs, except for the rare occasions when she's dressed in Irish costume or the time she and Ken dressed as Rhett and Scarlett. That was pretty cool.

Miners
Loggers


Unless by 'hate' you mean 'care about the well-being and protection of', then you'd be correct.

The Coal Industry

Yeah, something has to be done. Environmental horrors aside, those bastards don't give enough of a shit about the people who work for them to see that they have the minimum safety equipment, benefits and adequate health care. They can go fuck themselves.

Okay, yeah, you're totally pulling dumb stuff out of your ass. I personally don't care how many kids you have as long as you can provide for said children, and whether or not you abort is your fucking choice. Care-factor absolute zero. Also, I work hard. Very hard, which is why I was promoted twice in my first eight months on this job. I'm not only a supervisor, I still work hard, because things still need to get done and I can't justify sitting behind a desk while my staff does all the grunt-work.

So, once again, fuck you.

The truth? I would be very entertained to see what you think that actually is.

The American People? Really? Oh, I see; you mean white, straight, christian people, preferably male. To hell with women, LGBTs, non-christians and non-white people, because we all know they don't belong here anyway, right Mikey?

In closing and as always...

Snyder just listed a bunch of things he likes, on the assumption that liberals automatically hate everything conservatives like. No doubt this is because he automatically hates everything liberals like.

Hey, Snyder, you know what else I, as a liberal, really like? NOT jumping off bridges! Every day I make sure I don't jump off a bridge! Not jumping off bridges is something we liberals really like to do! If you see someone who isn't jumping off a bridge, you can assume that person is a liberal!

6/4/2017 11:38:44 PM

Bleeding Heart Libertarian

The U.S. Constitution: No, not really, though I do find it flawed.

Liberty: Fuck no! Liberty is good.

Freedom: See previous.

Success: No...

Big Trucks: Maybe not the most sensible thing, but they have a place and utility, again no.

Capitalism: Nope, it's better than the alternative.

Free Markets: See previous.

Wealthy People: Nah, but more taxes on the 1% could benefit the general population.

Economic Prosperity: Look up some goddamn stats sometime.

The Rule of Law: Wtf?

Traditional Values: Yeah, social conservatives are trash.

The American Flag: It's a goddamn flag! Who is petty enough to hate a flag?

The Founding Fathers: I am indifferent. They were flawed people with some solid ideas.

Guns: Not a fan, but they do have a place.

Limited Government: Eh, regulation has a place, but not accross the board. Give this one a partial.

Religious Freedom: Nah, be an idiot on your own. Please don't vote though (I feel like you still will).

Homeschooling: Maybe not ideal, but it can be good if you're super anxious or in a bad district.

Private Schools: Kind of broken as they stand now, but could probably be fixed if there were widely accepted accredation bodies at the high school level.

Christian Schools: Yeah, I had to go through one. They suck.

Entrepreneurs: I guess I hate myself then!/s

Ronald Reagan: Not the worst president, but nowhere near the best.


Donald Trump: Yeah fuck that guy.

Mike Pence: Also fuck this guy.

Country Music: Depends on era; 1920s-1980s? Pretty damn good. 1980s-Present. Yeah, it sucks.

Rush Limbaugh: Fuck that guy too.

The Tea Party: Yeah, they are idiots.

Lower Taxes: Depends on the tax.

Old-Fashioned Light Bulbs: What do you have against more efficient, cleaner lighting?

Jesus: 90% of Jesus is stories that were already being told about Osiris, Krishna, and Zoroaster, and I don't hold much against them, so I guess no.

The Bible: It is kind of a shitty book (I have read it all).

The Christian Faith: Mostly evangelicals, I certianly don't hate my reasonable mainline protestant mother.

The Drudge Report: Never read it, seems to be a right wing hate rag, I'll assume yes.

John Wayne: Old cowboy movies are dope.

Alex Jones: Yeah, fuck this guy, except for the occasional dank memes his idiocy spawns.

NASCAR: Formula 1>NASCAR.

Tupperware: Do you think liberals just let our food spoil?

Big Cheeseburgers: Fuck no, I love me a big juicy burger!

Football: Eh, I prefer hockey.

Clint Eastwood: See John Wayne.

The Army: Nah, hegemony is a good thing.

The Navy: See previous, and same applies to marines and air force.

The Marines

The Air Force

Ron Paul: Honestly I don't care.

Rand Paul: See previous.

Marriage: Tbh, it's a good way to legally expand family for those close to you. In fact, I wish that it was possible to do the same in platonic contexts (eg two biologically unrelated people recognizing each other as siblings, due to a strong familial bond).

Family: See previous.

Babies: Not for me, but you have to continue the species.

Wal-Mart: Trashy, but convenient, I call it a tossup.

Flag Pins: See American flag.

Steakhouses: Fuck no, I love me some steak.

Chuck Norris: We get it, you were in middle school 10 years ago and still think those jokes are funny.

Bottled Water: Honestly, tap water is just better.

George Washington: See founding fathers.

The 1st Amendment: Fuck no.

The 2nd Amendment: Kind of, but it's a little late to get rid of now.

The 10th Amendment: Eh. Though I assume you're still salty about Obergefell v. Hodges, so for what you think the 10th Amendment is, I'll go with yes.

The Pledge of Allegiance: Only the 'under god' part

McDonald’s: They kinda suck...

Coca-Cola: There's better soda out there, I buy the niche stuff mostly.

Fried Food: Love fried food.

Muscle Cars: Depends on the car, but I can dig.

Charlie Daniels: See country music.

Dolly Parton: Again, see country Music.

Duck Dynasty: Yeah fuck those guys.

Johnny Cash: What? He was the man!

Sarah Palin: Good for a laugh I suppose.

Cheesesteaks: They are tasty.

Sean Hannity: Yeah fuck that guy.

Rodeos: Good for occasional jokes about whether it's my 'first rodeo,' but other than that, I don't care.

Cadillacs: Some of them are nice.

Barbie Dolls: Again, don't care at all.

Ted Cruz: Yeah fuck that guy.

Fiscal Sanity: No, you hate that.

Charlton Heston: Don't care.

Israel: There's plenty good about Israel, but they need to do much better regarding the plight of Palestinians.

Benjamin Netanyahu: He's not the leader to do that re:Israel, so somewhat yes.

Miners: Not individual miners, but they need to move on, coal is dead, long live wind, sun, water, and nuclear.

Loggers: Not as long as the trees are downed at a sustainible pace.

The Coal Industry: Yeah kind of.

National Sovereignty: Again, kind of.

National Borders: See previous.

Uncle Sam: Wtf?

The Washington Redskins: Maybe a little, but there's much worse to be worried about.

Small Businesses: See Entrepreneurs.

Self-Employment: See Entrepreneurs again.

Harley-Davidson Motorcycles: Eh, don't really care for motorcycles.

Military Veterans: Who's cutting veteran benefits again?

The Phrase “Islamic Terror”: Eh, I find the whole wording controversy thing a bit silly.

Big Families: Quiverfulls are shitty for other reasons besides having big families.

The Bible Belt: Well kind of, Tennessee and Georgia I have a soft spot for.

The Creation Museum: Yeah.

The 10 Commandments: Eh. Civic values are better anyway.

Anyone That Is Pro-Life: Not individual pro lifers, but the pro life movement is built on blatant intellectual dishonesty.

Anyone Who Disagrees With Them: Do we disagree on something like food or on basic tenents of human rights?

Hard Work: No.

Patriotism: No.

Winning: You know Trump has effectively lost over 10 billion dollars over his life, right?

The Truth: Remind me, which party hawks 'alternative facts' again?

The American People: No, fuck you.
