Interesting post. I like the part of "how they like to badmouth people".
Do you think there is any hatred and vile rhetoric coming from the far left?
Certainly; and almost always justified.... The right, meaning the reactionaries have run this country into a crater, and yet they blame the left/liberals... Did the liberals ever have their J. Edgar Hoover... Did the Liberals ever have any homosexual anti-communist cardinals in their pockets... Did they ever have a Reagan who could find it in his heart to love labor unions in Poland so long as they were a force against communism, but who hated them here as a force for democracy???
You guys are like any Southern Slave holder before the Civil War, who have and have had everything going your way for years, but who would split the union at a heart beat caring little for the pain and bloodshed that might follow... You have beat labor about the head and chest... You have beat blacks where it will not show... You have kept women as an inferior class...You have stepped on every civil right in defense of your social privilages, and yet you refuse to support the people who have laid their lives on the line to support you.... I do not think any one can say anything bad enough about the people on the rights that could not be better said, and more hurtful with only the addition of more truth... The so called conservatives, the reactionary biggots of the normal and religious sort are traitors; and in a fair world would be tried and hanged...
They have betrayed on countless occasions both the spirit and letter of the constitution... They are enemies of the people and of liberty... I am only nice to you bums because I really want to find some common ground... I want us all to be civil... I want us all to bend our efforts and backs to a common and virtuous purpose; which is, in a word: Liberty... I do not want to be your enemy as a human being only because you are an enemy of liberty and humanity... I do want to forgive and forget, and work with even the reactionaries for a better world for all our children... Just don't think for a moment that it is easy...
