As always, Balladeer’s Blog is the only site on the web that equally criticizes American Liberals and American Conservatives.
* Liberals irrationally consider the United States to be the greatest villain in history and their prejudices cause them to ignore any and all evidence to the contrary.
* Conservatives irrationally consider the United States to be the greatest hero in history and their prejudices cause them to ignore any and all evidence to the contrary.

Here at Balladeer’s Blog I always make it clear that I don’t lump myself in with the groups called Liberals or Conservatives or Libertarians.

That simple fact was lost and/or ignored in the slew of jokes about how “historically illiterate” Conservatives supposedly are for defending the woman. Talk shows, news shows, internet humor outlets all ran with the usual “Conservatives are morons” sentiment for several days.

Corrections were never run or aired by any of the offending outlets. The historical fact was lost in the rush to ridicule and all the general public remembered was that, supposedly, once again Conservatives had revealed how “stupid” they are. Continue reading
