Bill Maher and Barney Frank As All-Too-Typical Leftist Haters

One hears a liberal rant, and the only thing a reasonable person can do is step back to avoid being struck in the face by the rabid spittle.

Bill Maher – a man who once cheered an assassination attempt on Dick Cheney – had the following things to say about Glenn Beck:

BILL MAHER, HOST: Listening to people like Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck these days, I cannot figure out whether these right-wingers are more dangerous when they’re in power or when they’re out of power. Because when they’re out of power, their paranoia goes off the charts. This Glenn Beck guy, I wouldn’t even give him the time of day except he’s a big star now on Fox and a lot of people believe him, and he’s talking about FEMA concentration camps. He says, “We are headed towards socialism, totalitarianism beyond your wildest imagination.” But apparently not beyond his wildest imagination.

MAHER: But you know, look, I, I, I would never be the person who says you have to watch what you say because some borderline, no really, I’m not for that. But that’s an argument that’s given a lot: you can’t say this because a borderline person might take it and do this. I’m sorry, that’s the price of living in a free speech country, and I do want to live in one because I make my living at it. Okay, but you know, I must say, Tim McVeigh in 1995 if you recall, this was the same kind of talk that made him blow up that building.

Noel Sheppard, from whose site I obtained the above Maher statements, wrote:

I guess Maher missed the hypocrisy concerning his disturbingly caustic views of the Bush administration while they were in power, in particular his expression of regret that the March 2007 assassination of Vice President Dick Cheney failed.

Possibly even more delicious was that sitting to Maher’s left was MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann who himself has made an almost endless number of personal attacks on members of the Bush administration during his tenure on “Countdown.”

Alas, Maher seemed oblivious to all this seemingly obvious irony.

I remember the unhinged left-wing hatred that drooled out of the left when Tony Snow passed away after a long fight with colon cancer. And I still marvel at the psychotic anger that was directed at Sarah Palin, at her daughter Bristol, and even at her little baby son Trig. We all remember the liberal attack that claimed that Trig was really Bristol’s baby, rather than Sarah Palin’s. David Letterman recently used Bristol to launch yet another attack her mother. How many conservatives have attacked Barack Obama’s two daughters, and what would liberals say if one actually did? I think of all the times when I’ve had discussions with liberals that quickly turned into heated arguments, and then even more quickly turned into my literally backing away from hysterical anger where people whom I had previously believed to be sane were literally bug-eyed and spitting at me as they shouted. It was almost as though the demon that lives inside these people came out.

One time in the gym I got in an argument with a liberal man who was half my size. I benched pressed more than four times as much as him; I most likely literally could have killed him with a single punch – yet he became so hysterical that he literally threatened to attack me with a dumb bell. He was completely out of control with hatred and rage because he couldn’t emotionally handle having his ideology questioned.

And that’s by no means the only time I’ve encountered such out of control hysteria and rage from liberals.

I have to marvel at the awe-inspiring hypocrisy of the left.

Leftist governments have been responsible for the murders of over 100 million people in the 20th century – for the most part during peacetime during ideological purges of their own people – but liberals talk about George Bush. George Bush attacked the Taliban in Afghanistan – after they launched an attack that murdered more than 3,000 innocent people; and he attacked Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, which was responsible for more than one million deaths, and had buried at least 400,000 bodies of its own citizens in mass graves. What does a sane person say to the charge that George Bush was a war criminal for overthrowing such a savage tyrant and creating a stable democracy? One enters a zone where reality is irrelevant, and only hatred and the most unhinged forms of demonization are allowed to exist.

Liberal journalist Juan Williams has come to realize that the hatred from the left is actually far more vicious and judgmental than anything coming out of the right. The National Public Radio correspondent and Fox News contributor said (click this link to see it on Youtube):

“I’ve come to understand that when I say something that doesn’t hold to the orthodoxy of the far left, they are far more vicious and personal, you know, ad hominem in their attacks against me, than anything on the right. Historically I always thought, you what know what, it’s the far right that’s close minded. No, Bill, let me tell you, I’ve discovered the far left is extremely harsh and punishing when you don’t say exactly what they want you to say and stick to their orthodoxy.” (O’Reilly Factor, Monday, March 2, 2009)

Liberals tell me that Hitler was right-wing all the time. No, he wasn’t. “NAZI” was an acronym that stood for “National Socialist German Workers’ Party.” Why not look it up for yourself? If I were to say, “National Socialist American Workers’ Party,” would I be talking about Republicans and conservatives? Get real! Fascism and communism were both forms of socialism; the only difference was that fascism was national socialism and communism was class-based socialism. They were both firmly in the tradition of the political left. And just what on earth do liberals who call Nazism a form of conservatism even think Hitler was trying to “conserve”?

So don’t blame Hitler on us; he was one of your guys, lefties.

Which reminds me of one of my early articles about one of Bill Maher’s hateful and unhinged attacks on Pope Benedict. He labeled a man as a Nazi who had personally been a victim of Nazi oppression. Bill Maher, in his attack and the lies that were inherent in that attack, proved that HE was the real Nazi. And his continual attacks on religion are totally compatible with the worst mass murderers in human history.

So now we have the guy who has cheer leaded assassination attempts on Republicans comparing a guy who has never done any such thing to one of the most evil American mass-murderers of all time.

And this hatred and demonization from the left occurs all the time. Only today, Barney Frank personally attacked Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalica:

“I wouldn’t want it to go to the United States Supreme Court now because that homophobe Antonin Scalia has too many votes on this current court,” said Frank

How many prominent Republican politicians have gone after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and labeled her as a “God-hating witch” or some other form of ad hominem?

During the campaign, prominent Democrat and “civil-rights” leader John Lewis demonized the McCain-Palin campaign with the following:

“What I am seeing today reminds me too much of another destructive period in American history. Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin are sowing the seeds of hatred and division, and there is no need for this hostility in our political discourse,” he said.

Of course, it turned out that the events that Democrats such as John Lewis used to justify his attack had been fabricated. Liberal commentators talked about the “Weimar-like rage” of the Republicans; but – just as Noel Sheppard pointed out about Bill Maher’s hypocrisy and the irony of his comments – that liberal commentator failed to realize that the Nazis had set the Reichstag fire that they subsequently used to destroy their opponents. Creating an incident and then using that incident to destroy their opponents – which was what was done to John McCain and Sarah Palin – was the real expression of “Weimar-like rage.”

Shortly after the election, I wrote an article entitled, “Do Unto Obama As Liberals Did Unto Bush,” which (obviously, from the title itself) suggested that conservatives begin to use the tactics of the left that brought Bush and Republicans down to bring down Obama and Democrats. The article garnered a great deal of attention from liberals at a site I used to write for called the “American Sentinel.” The site was brought down after being attacked by a liberal hacker (and was recently started again). The incredible thing was that none of the liberal comments questioned my premise that the left had used vicious and hateful tactics: they only attacked the fact that I was daring to suggest that conservatives use the SAME TACTICS THAT LIBERALS USED. The closest someone came was in claiming that I had fabricated the “I hate Bush” scrawling found outside a middle school. But I found it on a liberal’s site who posted it to CHEER the contents. As of today’s date of March 24, 2009, the link is still valid and still contains the note.

The left is vile; they are despicable; they are hateful; they are evil; and quite frankly they are often literally demonic. Hate as tactic has been frequently employed with great success by even prominent representatives of the left. And all the while as they engage in extremes of hatred, they are all the while constantly pointing the finger at conservatives to accuse them of the very thing that the liberals themselves are doing.

Update, December 21, 2o11: I had cause to cite this article again, and discovered that the liberal who posted the “I hate Bush!” note had deleted it (like the lying coward that he is).  But no fear; I was able to find an archive of that image here.  And this time I saved it to my hard drive as well:

For the record, I’ve never purged a single thing after posting more than 1,900 articles. Because unlike liberals, I actually have the courage to stand up for what I said, and either defend it or at least have the decency to admit I was wrong to say it.

    “It was almost as though the demon that lives inside these people came out.”

    You’ve described that very well, and quite literally when rabid abortionists are involved.

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    I believe in the supernatural, in God, satan, angels and demons. But I am not one who believes a demon is hiding behind every bush. Nor am I one who tends to think everyone with whom I disagree is a demoniac.

    But I have encountered too many people now who go into rages that are simply not “normal” over having their politics questioned. Their reaction is NOT “sane.” But it’s not just crazy, either; it’s as though a hood comes over them, a force that won’t let them hear any more.

    I have quite a few conservatives in my family (thank God). But we know who the liberals in the family are, and we walk on eggshells around them because they just lose it and get hysterically angry. You don’t talk to people like that; you just try to avoid “drawing out the devil.”

  3. themadjewess Says:

    This is ALL TOO true, these people are hateful vermin pigs. Poor Tony Snow :( they are SICK AND INSANE.

  4. Smart one Says:

    I did look up Nazism. Why don’t you start by telling the truth. First of all a Nazism is an ideology not an acronym. Nazism is often considered by scholars to be a form of fascism. While it incorporated elements from both left and right-wing politics, the Nazis formed most of their alliances on the right. That was what my research came up. Republicans and the right are the most hypocritical, fear mongering, war profiting party ever. America has finally woke up and that is why you party is out of work and disintegrating. Far as I see you all should quit like your girl, Sarah Palin

  5. Michael Eden Says:

    You have genuinely terrible sources. And you believe genuine lies. Which is why you’re such a good liberal.

    First of all, you do an incredibly stupid bifurcation, as though if Nazism is an acronym it can’t be an ideology, or vice versa. Clearly that is both wrong and dumb. Second of all, the German is Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei. Nazi IS an acronym for key letters in the first word, Nationalsozialistische. So you’re just wrong.

    Next, “Nazi stands for “National Socialist German Workers’ Party.” You tell me, genius. If we had the “National Socialist American Workers’ Party,” you think we should figure it was the work of those damn Reagan conservatives? The ones who A) hate socialism; B) Hate unions; C) are constantly accused of hating workers?

    You aren’t informing me of anything, and you CERTAINLY aren’t correcting me for any mistake I made, by saying that Nazism was a form of fascism. The problem you have is that fascism is such an inextricable part of the progressive movement that characterized Democrats between Woodrow Wilson and FDR. A quintessential element of fascism is mobilization, what is described as “the moral equivalent of war.” It is about an expert-driven unity, where our leaders mobilize society to solve whatever “crisis” they decide to focus upon. FDR in his inaugural address promised to seek the power to wage a war against the emergency, as great as the power that would be given to me if we were in fact invaded by a foreign foe… I assume unhesitatingly the leadership of this great army dedicated to a disciplined attack upon our common problems.” And he militarized society to deal with the emergency. And both Hitler and Mussolini BOTH had their own forms of the New Deal, and both pursued the same basic ends the same basic way.

    Since you point out Nazism was fascist, let’s look at some history as to WHO was recognized as fascist in America.

    Fascism sought to eliminate class differences and to destroy/replace capitalism and laissez-faire economics.

    H.G. Wells, a great admirer of FDR and an extremely close personal friend of his, was also a great progressive of his day. He summed it up this way in a major speech at Oxford to the YOUNG LIBERALS organization under the banner of “Liberal Fascism”: “I am asking for a Liberal Fascisti, for enlightened Nazis.” He said, “And do not let me leave you in the slightest doubt as to the scope and ambition of what I am putting before you” and then said:

    These new organizations are not merely organizations for the spread of defined opinions…the days of that sort of amateurism are over – they are organizations to replace the dilatory indecisiveness of democracy. The world is sick of parliamentary politics…The Fascist Party, to the best of its ability, is Italy now. The Communist Party, to the best of its ability, is Russia. Obviously the Fasicsts of Liberalism must carry out a parallel ambition on still a vaster scale…They must begin as a disciplined sect, but must end as the sustaining organization of a reconstituted mankind.”

    H.G. Wells pronounced FDR “the most effective transmitting instrument possible for the coming of the new world order.” And of course, we easily see that the new world order Wells wanted was a fascist one. In 1941, George Orwell concluded, “Much of what Wells has imagined and worked for is physically there in Nazi Germany.”

    Mussolini and Hitler felt they were doing things along similar lines to FDR. Indeed they celebrated the New Deal as a kindred effort to their own. The German press was lavish in praise for FDR. In 1934 the Volkischer Beobachter (the national newspaper) described Roosevelt as a “warmhearted leader of the people with a profound understanding of social needs.” The paper said that FDR, through his New Deal, had eliminated “the uninhibited frenzy of market speculation” by adopting “National Socialist strains of thought in his economic and social policies.”

    Mussolini reviewed FDR’s book Looking Forward saying in effect, “This guy’s one of us!” He wrote: “The appeal to the decisiveness and masculing sobriety of the nation’s youth, with which Roosevelt here calls his readers to battle, is reminiscent of the ways and means by which Fascism awakened the Italian people.” Mussolini further wrote that FDR understood that the economy could not be “left to its own devices” and went on to say, “Without question, the mood accompanying this sea change resembles that of Fascism.” And the Nazi newspaper paper Volkischer Beobachter wrote that “many passages in his [FDR’s] book Looking Forward could have been written by a National Socialist. In any case, one can assume that he feels considerable affinity with the National Socialist Philosophy.” For a source see Schivelbusch’s “Three New Deals,” pp. 23, 24, 19.

    Mussolini, in a famous interview with Emil Ludwig, reiterated his view that “America has a dictator” in FDR. In an essay, Mussolini marveled at how the forces of “spiritual renewal” were destroying the outdated notion that principles such as democracy were “immortal principles.” He wrote, “America is itself abandoning them. Roosevelt is moving, acting, giving orders independently of the decisions or wishes of the Senate or Congress. There are no longer intermediaries between him and the nation. There is no longer a parliament but an ‘etat majeur.'”

    What the Nazis pursued was a form of anticapitalist anti-conservative communitarianism encapsulated in the concept of Volksgemeinschaft, or “people’s community.”

    From the Nazi Party Platform:

    – The first obligation of every citizen must be to work both spiritually and physically. The activity of individuals is not to counteract the interests of the universality, but must have its result within the framework of the whole for the benefit of all Consequently we demand:

    – Abolition of unearned (work and labour) incomes. Breaking of rent-slavery.

    – In consideration of the monstrous sacrifice in property and blood that each war demands of the people personal enrichment through a war must be designated as a crime against the people. Therefore we demand the total confiscation of all war profits.

    – We demand the nationalization of all (previous) associated industries (trusts).

    – We demand a division of profits of all heavy industries.

    – We demand an expansion on a large scale of old age welfare.

    – We demand the creation of a healthy middle class and its conservation, immediate communalization of the great warehouses and their being leased at low cost to small firms, the utmost consideration of all small firms in contracts with the State, county or municipality.

    – We demand a land reform suitable to our needs, provision of a law for the free expropriation of land for the purposes of public utility, abolition of taxes on land and prevention of all speculation in land.

    – We demand struggle without consideration against those whose activity is injurious to the general interest. Common national criminals, usurers, Schieber and so forth are to be punished with death, without consideration of confession or race.

    – We demand substitution of a German common law in place of the Roman Law serving a materialistic world-order.

    – The state is to be responsible for a fundamental reconstruction of our whole national education program, to enable every capable and industrious German to obtain higher education and subsequently introduction into leading positions. The plans of instruction of all educational institutions are to conform with the experiences of practical life. The comprehension of the concept of the State must be striven for by the school [Staatsbuergerkunde] as early as the beginning of understanding. We demand the education at the expense of the State of outstanding intellectually gifted children of poor parents without consideration of position or profession.

    – The State is to care for the elevating national health by protecting the mother and child, by outlawing child-labor, by the encouragement of physical fitness, by means of the legal establishment of a gymnastic and sport obligation, by the utmost support of all organizations concerned with the physical instruction of the young.

    – We demand abolition of the mercenary troops and formation of a national army.

    – We demand legal opposition to known lies and their promulgation through the press. In order to enable the provision of a German press, we demand, that: a. All writers and employees of the newspapers appearing in the German language be members of the race: b. Non-German newspapers be required to have the express permission of the State to be published. They may not be printed in the German language: c. Non-Germans are forbidden by law any financial interest in German publications, or any influence on them, and as punishment for violations the closing of such a publication as well as the immediate expulsion from the Reich of the non-German concerned. Publications which are counter to the general good are to be forbidden. We demand legal prosecution of artistic and literary forms which exert a destructive influence on our national life, and the closure of organizations opposing the above made demands.

    Ah, yes, the Nazis had their Fairness Doctrine before your liberals had theirs.

    Now, you read the Nazi Party Platform, and given what American liberals want and what American conservatism opposes, it is so obvious which party is “fascist” that it isn’t even silly. Then you ADD to that the fact that fascism and American progressivism (which is liberalism) were so similar that the great fascists of the age couldn’t tell the damn difference.

    So you can take your “research” back to whatever toilet bowl you got it from.

    By the way, your last smarmy sentences betray the same ignorance as the other crap. Why don’t you consider what the polls are saying these days:

    Wednesday, July 22, 2009

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 29% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-five percent (35%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -6 (see trends).

    Republicans continue to enjoy a slight edge on the Generic Congressional Ballot.

    Here’s my personal favorite:

    Voters Trust GOP More than Democrats on Eight of 10 Key Issues

    Voters now trust Republicans more than Democrats on eight out of 10 key electoral issues, including, for the second straight month, the top issue of the economy. They’ve also narrowed the gap on the remaining two issues, the traditionally Democratic strong suits of health care and education.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that voters trust the GOP more on economic issues 46% to 41%, showing little change from the six-point lead the party held last month. This is just the second time in over two years of polling the GOP has held the advantage on economic issues. The parties were close on the issue in May, with the Democrats holding a one-point lead.

    Voters not affiliated with either party trust Republicans more to handle the economy by a 46% to 32% margin.”

    I think you’ll see that by the next election, it will be the DEMOCRAT party disintegrating. Democrats, with total control over anything, are running away from Obama health care and cap-and-trade policies because they are terrified that the American people will throw them out of office.

    So I aint going anywhere. And neither are Republicans.

  6. themadjewess Says:

    Michael, very great write-up.
    These people dont have a clue that the republicans have NOT been in power now for over 2 1/2 years. The ONLY fascism I personally see happening is coming from the liberal-left, working against America like power-mad, drunken maniacs.

  7. Michael Eden Says:

    “Fascism” has long since become a term that liberals use as an insult to the right. What these people are too ignorant to understand is that the Nazis were the far right OF THE FAR LEFT.

    The communists redefined “fascism” as the polar opposite of communism. If communists were good, fascists were evil; if Marxism is progressive, then fascism must be conservative; if fascism is left wing, then fascism must be right wing; if Marxism champions the proletariat, then fascism must champion the bourgeoisie; if Marxism is socialist, then fascism must be capitalist. The very simple fact is that Marxist scholarship – and those very much influenced by it – has altered our understanding of fascism. Fascism is very much from the left. It was embraced by leftists, and its philosophical underpinnings are leftist. For instance, it most CERTAINLY was not the “right wing” that embraced Martin Heidegger or his philosophy. It was rather the left. And now we know that Heidegger was a Nazi. Same with a lot of other thinkers and their ideas.

    One of the things I hear is that corporations and financial entities in Germany followed Hitler. So therefore Nazism and fascism are “right wing.” No, what it means is that the corporations and financial institutions were a) cowards and b) interested only in making money and staying in business. Just like today. Look at what’s gone on in the US: Our chief corporations (the auto industry) meekly followed Obama; our financial industry has meekly followed Obama. Does that somehow prove that Obama is “right wing”? That’s crazy!!! And since Reagan stood for the opposite of Obama, and Obama’s right wing, then Reagan is LEFT WING?

    So the left bases its entire “Nazis and fascists are right wingers” hypothesis on bizarre and ridiculous “evidences.”

    And yeah, Madjewess, Democrats have been running the show for 2 1/2 years now. The last time Republicans were in charge of either the House or the Senate, unemployment was 4.4% and the Dow was almost 12,000.

  8. themadjewess Says:

    I know, see this Michael:

  9. Michael Eden Says:

    That’s pretty good. I saved it so if/when it gets purged, I’ll still have it.

    Thanks for pointing it out!!!

    We are on the brink of some truly terrible and terrifying things. And God alone will be able to save us.

  10. themadjewess Says:

    I know with the congress, the D’s are in charge, and these D’s are total communist fascist pigs. They keep saying that “We need to get rid of the R’s”
    It is OUT OF CONTROL… They are power mad like I’ve NEVER seen, and I have been voting for close to 25 years. I knew the earth was going to get bad, but not this bad.
    But I read the books of the prophets and the book of revelation, so, I know who wins:

  11. Michael Eden Says:

    It’s interesting. In 1936 FDR said the following to Congress:
    “We have built up new instruments of public power. In the hands of a people’s government this power is wholesome and proper. But in the hands of political puppets of an economic autocracy such power would provide shackles for the liberties of the people.”

    The upshot of this statement is that FDR didn’t mind an authoritarian government, so long as representatives of “the people” – i.e. liberals – ran the government. But if anybody “we” dislike gets control of the government, it would constitute tyranny.

    As Jonah Goldberg noted, this type of skewed rationale gets to the very heart of liberal fascism. Progressivism, liberalism, has become an ideology of power. So long as the liberals hold it, principles don’t matter. It’s fine to grab after power that our founders never dreamed of the federal government holding. It also highlights the real fascist legacy of WWI and the New Deal: the notion that government action in the name of “good things” under the direction of “the people” is always and everywhere justified. The anti-dogmatism that progressives and fascists alike inherited from Pragmatism made the motives of the activist the only criteria for judging the legitimacy of action.

    As a conservative, I don’t WANT a gigantic colossus of a federal government. And I don’t care if that government is Democrat OR Republican. I want a CONSTITUTIONAL federal government. And NOT a “constitution” that is a living breathing document that means whatever the next radical leftist WANTS it to mean, either.

    God wins in the end. And God told us that in the last days terrible people would take over the government – the global government – and war upon Him. So we also know who gets SQUASHED in the end, too!

  12. themadjewess Says:

    I SO cant WAIT until God SQUASHES satan! :)
    I HATE evil!!
    I just want God to destroy that which is not His now. People are born evil, I believe, then they become democrats ;)

  13. Michael Eden Says:

    I’ve come to see two types of Democrats. The Democrats you describe, the faithful and fanatic drivers of despicable leftist politics. The people who will use ANY tactic to destroy anyone who gets in the way of their agenda (e.g. Sarah Palin, particularly the attacks on her children).

    And then there are the “garden variety” Democrats, the people who naive think “Democrats help people.”

    I know a few profoundly religious and GOOD people who vote Democrat because of sheer naivete. They look at a few of the things Democrats claim to be doing – helping the poor – and decide they want to help the poor, too. What these people fail to realize is that the only thing to actually destroy the poor that Democrats could do would be if they retroactively decided to abort the poor (which is, of course, how Democrats “help” poor, unborn human beings).

    Take minimum wage increases. That is passed to “help the poor.” The fact that the last one is going to cause 300,000 people to lose their jobs out of about 2,700,000 total minimum wage jobs (more than 10% of the total minimum wage workforce). In their desire to “help the poor,” these naive Democrats refuse to realize that increasing the minimum wage has the same effect that increasing gas prices have (people use less gas, and employers hire fewer workers).

    So there’s this harnessing of evil people, and naive people who foolishly continue to let the evil people change the world.
