LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES AND BALLADEER’S BLOG

Two fools who prove that ANYBODY can get reelected and it doesn't prove they are competent.

Two fools who prove that ANYBODY can get reelected and it doesn’t prove they are competent.

Regular readers of Balladeer’s Blog are familiar with my contempt for those walking caricatures called American Liberals and American Conservatives. My overseas readers in particular often leave comments and send emails telling me how refreshing it is to read a fresh perspective on American politics –  a perspective not guided by the simple-minded belief that members of one political faction are “the good guys” and the members of the other political faction are “the bad guys”.

My blog contains plenty of items that piss off both Liberals and Conservatives. Once again thank you to those of you who have stuck with me over these past 3 years and 9 months. The fact that you’re still here means you’re secure enough in your beliefs that you don’t leave in a huff just because you encounter something that offends you.

Which brings me to the topic of this particular blog post – the way in which hypersensitive American Liberals and American Conservatives get very easily outraged by dissenting viewpoints. On a regular basis when I go to look at new comments waiting in the moderation bin a mini-saga plays out. A new reader – either a Liberal or a Conservative – will first discover items I’ve written that they agree with. They praise me out the ass in their first few comments, then they find something that they deem mildly offensive so they write a “tsk tsk” comment. Then they read something that proves I’m NOT the Liberal or Conservative they thought I was and they bluster with hatred.  

For a few laughs here are some examples from both Liberal and Conservative fanatics, with mild embellishment for the sake of humor: 

LIBERAL FANATIC: I just discovered your blog through a comment thread at Kill-Fetuses-Not-The-Environment.com. At first I thought you were a like-minded intellectual who recognized that everyone who is not a Liberal is reactionary scum that the world would be better off without. Now that I’ve read enough of your dangerous blog – no doubt funded by the Koch Brothers – I realize you are just a right-wing teabagger and I hate you. It’s your loss! I will tell everybody at the “Diversity Means NO White Christians” forum I belong to to avoid your site and to demand that your blog be obliterated and that you be arrested or sent for sensitivity training.

P.S. But I DO kind of like the big boob pictures.

CONSERVATIVE FANATIC: I just discovered your blog through a comment thread at Bring-Back-The-McGuffey-Reader.com. At first I thought you were a decent, God-fearing, sex-hating American like myself who recognized that everyone who supports the communist scam called Social Security is socialist scum that the world would be better off without. Now that I’ve read enough of your dangerous blog – no doubt funded by George Soros – I realize you are just an Obama-loving Occupy Wall Street commie and I hate you. It’s your loss! I will tell everybody at the “Gun Ownership By Eight Or Else It’s Too Late” forum I belong to to avoid your site and to demand that your blog be obliterated and that you be arrested and sent back to whatever communist shithole you came from.

P.S. But I DO kind of like the big boob pictures. 

I will just point out again that people do NOT have to limit their thinking to the ridiculous extremes of left-wing dogma and right-wing dogma. Like most adults my own opinions are a combination of “liberal” and “conservative” attitudes, and I refuse to pretend I belong to one or the other group just to go along with the silly “shirts vs skins” or “Sharks vs Jets” mentality that the Democrats and Republicans try to force on the rest of us.

  1. living in Wisconsin I can tell you what extremism on both sides leads to. A former strong Republican I find my self wondering wonder who’s on my side.

    • I can sympathize! Thanks for commenting and feel free to spread the word or read more of my Liberals and Conservatives and … posts. Those of us who are sick of both sides should reach out.
