Mascot with demo and repub heads

The symbol of the nonexistent Balladeer Political Party

I will say again that I will never be a Conservative but I regret having EVER considered myself an American Liberal. Call me a Socialist if you want, or an Anarchist, but don’t associate me with the psychotic stooges called American Liberals.

Here is ANOTHER former Liberal like me expressing their disgust with what clueless, uninformed Americans have fundamentally transformed Liberalism into. The link to the whole item is below, but here are some excerpts from her piece:  

” … I want to share with you, from the liberal bastion of Northern California, that I am officially tired of the type of people who have surrounded me my entire life. In the wake of Trump’s election, I am experiencing ‘tribe fatigue.’ I’m not tired of The Other, Detestable Tribe. I’m tired of my own.

“I was raised a secular liberal. My college professors were secular liberals. During my journalism phase, my newspaper colleagues were secular liberals. My law school professors and peers were – in the vast majority – secular liberals. Almost everyone at my corporate law firm was a secular liberal. My California neighbors and friends are secular liberals, as are my colleagues. My mother, siblings, and their spouses are all secular liberals.

crying-hillary-supporters“By all rights, I should be a member in good standing of their tribe, ‘liking’ their Facebook posts and joining their candlelight vigils against the evil Trump Administration. But November 8 and its aftermath revealed to me that I am just so tired of these people. I can’t be like them, and I don’t want my kids turning into them.

“I am tired of their undisguised contempt for tens of millions of Americans, with no effort to temper their response to the election with humility or empathy.

“I am tired of their unexamined snobbery and condescension.

“I am tired of their name-calling and virtue-signaling as signs of supposedly high intelligence. 

“I am tired of their trendiness, jumping on every left-liberal bandwagon that comes along (transgender activism, anyone?) and then acting like anyone not on board is an idiot/hater. 

“I am tired of watching them raise clueless kids who go off to college and within months are convinced they live in a rapey, racist patriarchy; ‘Make America Great Again’ is hate speech; and Black Lives Matter agitators are their brothers-in-arms against White Privilege. If my kids are like that at nineteen, I’ll feel I’ve seriously failed them as a parent.  

“I am tired of being bored and exasperated by everybody. I feel like I have read this book a thousand times, and there are no surprises in it. Down with Trump! Trans Lives Matter! Climate deniers are destroying the planet! No cake, we’re gluten-free!”

So many of us have come to feel the same way! American Liberals have driven away so many of us but as long as they can pretend that winning California means Hillary should be president these perpetually unstable adolescents will go on whining and screaming and alienating even more people.

Some of us former Liberals stop where I am, content to leave that label behind but not embracing Conservatism. Many others – with many more to come, I’m sure – get driven all the way to becoming Conservatives and I can honestly say that the American Left deserves ALL of the credit for that.

  1. I used to think you were exaggerating about how weird american liberals have become but not after seeing the way they have embarrassed themselves following the election.

  2. Gina

    I almost cried as I read this. I know exactly how she feels. The American Left has betrayed all of us to pursue their strange alliance with violent Muslims.

  3. I have felt all this so often myself!

    If you even offer the idea that you were looking to support Trump, or did in the past, even now, its nothing but name calling vitriol. Its “idiot” “racist”. Even after I have explained I no longer support him, still they make YOU the enemy. “How could you think of voting for him? Why do you question what MSNBC is doing? Oh I dont know maybe because everyday they try and sell us a narrative about Russia and Trump, or just Trump doing something to keep it going? The same thing Fox did with Bush. Maybe Im too much of a marketing genius to see the narratives.

    What I’m finding is that many of them are insecure as hell, and are unable to share an opposing point of view. But when they get pissed its PURE HATRED spewing from their mouths directed at you.The EXACT same as any far right extremist Right winger, or religious fanatic. I’m also finding that many of them don’t seem to know why they are getting angry. That’s the most troubling part. As a 2nd Amendment defending,outspoken,Gay, mental health and women rights promoting, Catholic, money and power loving native San Franciscan liberal Jedi it frustrates and sickens me to death, to see these supposedly “tolerant” fellow libs go from calm demeanor, to angry child in seconds. Honestly, they need to be told to STFU and bitch slapped.

    • Thanks for the comment. I definitely know how you feel. The most intolerant people in this country constantly act like they are the embodiment of compassion.

      Plus the way they are all pretty much like Montag’s Wife in terms of mindlessly believing ANYTHING that “approved” outlets like MSNBC or NPR spew is bizarre.

      I stopped calling myself a Liberal long ago and just use Socialist or Populist now. And you’re right about how they are just like the religious right. I’ve even written blog posts here about how Liberalism has become a faith-based belief system as irrational as any religion.

    The left won’t be happy until the only people still agreeing with them are wide eyed fanatics.

  6. Samantha

    She speaks for us all!

  7. Melanie

    She nailed it!

  8. Milan

    I used to be on the left too but things like this drove me away too.

  9. Wendy

    She’s probably even more fed up with them now.
