I've spent the evening surfing some of the Left-wing blogs, wading through the muck and the goo of their absolute hatred of anything even approaching the values of mainstream America.
As I've said before, I'm not particularly religious, but I have no problem with those who are. These people, however, have nothing but hatred and ridicule for anything that has anything whatsoever to do with Christianity (apparently Islam gets a pass).
These people have taken the tiny minority of ultra-religious Christians and stereotyped them as the mainstream of Conservatism. And the hatred is, literally, insane. It has no connection whatsoever to reality. They portray Christians as shrieking fanatics, hell-bent on making their message the policy of this country.
What fascinates me is that that very description describes exactly what these Lefties are trying to do. They are absolute shrieking fanatics who believe that they are the ones who are correct. But they, of course, don't see it that way. They can't see that their portrayal of supposed "Christian extremism" exactly mirrors their "Secular extremism", or that their brand of extremism can be easily documented while you actually have to hunt for any "Christian extremism".
If there were blogs in Russia in 1916, I believe that they would be no different than what we are seeing today. These people want a Communist revolution. I don't think that they even know that they want a Communist revolution, but they want a revolution that will bring about their vision of America, which amounts to the same thing.
These people are being manipulated by the Communists in this country and they're too stupid to even realize it. No, not "the Left", though it amounts to the same thing. These people are Communists. The frightening thing is that they don't even know it. They just buy the line that's given to them and don't bother to look into where it comes from. Standing up for "the little guy" just sounds like the right thing to do.
The question is: if they knew what they were standing for (Communism) would they change their stance?
