Hatemongering Isn't Just for Right-Wingers Anymore

How do you measure hate and intolerance among liberals and conservatives? Prof. Arthur Brooks will show you.

Money Q:

"A politically progressive friend of mine always seemed to root against baseball teams from the South. The Braves, the Rangers, the Astros -- he hated them all. I asked him why, to which he replied, "Southerners are prejudiced."

The same logic is evident in the complaint the American political left has with conservative voters. According to the political analysis of filmmaker Michael Moore, whose perception of irony apparently does not extend to his own words, "The right wing, that is not where America's at . . . It's just a small minority of people who hate. They hate. They exist in the politics of hate . . . They are hate-triots."

What about liberals?"

They don't fare particularly well. Read the whole thing.

Although the Right has long been painted as intolerant, in reality, no one is more intolerant or hate-filled than Liberals. Just as Repubs are forever accused of being fiercely partisan. When it comes down to it, no one is more viciously partisan than Dems.
The same goes for racism these days: whites are forever vilified as the perpetual racists, and as such all the societal scoldings about race are continually misdirected at whites to this day. Even though blacks are clearly the most racist group out there TODAY. Heck, they don’t even try to hide it. Clearly they have failed to get the message the racism is wrong. And this is because they have gotten a pass for their ugly attitudes for too long while whitey continues to receive the undeserved scoldings based entirely on the distant past.

The Left is lying to ya, folks.

Ask me where I rate Michael Moore... He is a tool bag and I give him a -39. He should be working at McDonald's. We wouldn't even know his name if it wasn't for his hate propaganda. He contributes nothing to society. All he does is make the world a worse place to live.
