Why Is The Left In America So Filled With HATE?
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
bitterness and hatred is stunning in its depth and intensity. Their
hate knows no bounds. It is America's political left of which I write.
or anyone not toeing the progressive/Marxist/socialist line of
America's political left is the lowest of the low beneath even their
respect for a gnat.
Their gall overfloweth. They foul and sour
the very air with their violent language, their profane speech, their
threats (implied and otherwise), their cock-sure overconfidence scrawls
FEAR across their foreheads.
They have no respect for anyone
other than themselves. Common decency in addressing another human being
who may hold a differing opinion is avoided like the plague.
use of the vilest of profane language in the pubic square is their
trademark. Having a conversation with them is akin to walking barefoot
through a livestock pen -- in the dark.
They are the bully in
every conversation or discussion. Their use of vocal force to dominate a
debate, especially when they are losing to common sense, only
demonstrates the shallowness of their own knowledge stream and their
feeling of inadequacy amidst a gathering where the mean age is over ten
They lash out in all directions when they perceive a
threat to their well guarded empty vault of morals. They guard well
that which they do not have and transfer the evil which they do.
are like frightened, terrified, children. Unsure of themselves, they
flounder in a sea of grey on a black and white planet.
and hypocritical they claim love and respect for all while they harbor
hate, and revulsion for anyone not like them, or anyone not deferring to
them, or anyone disagreeing with them.
They are takers and users unable, or unwilling, to make or give. There is no true charity in them.
outwardly sing praises to freedom while they, themselves, are slaves to
an authoritarian political philosophy. They would enslave the world
in an instant given the chance.
Their favorite weapon is bureaucratic despotism wielded through government agencies shielded from pubic accountability.
They love the cowardice of dictatorship.
are all apparatchiks of a strong centralized authority -- the state.
It is to the state they bow and pay homage and their allegiance.
have created, and they sustain, a permanent underclass of
underachievers in America from whom only a vote is required to receive
largesse from the country's treasury.
They have given America the
Square Deal, the Fair Deal, and the Great Society -- all referred to as
"progressive" when, in fact, all are socialist introductory programs,
which ultimately enslave their participants.
They cry "fairness" without ever telling us their definition of fairness.
They cry "equality" while never explaining that, to them, some are more equal than others.
cry "Social Justice" while never explaining that social justice is only
another name for socialism, an introductory form of communism/Marxism.
will not hesitate to use a nation's pain to further their agenda even
when that pain involves the deaths of thousands at work or a score of
children at school. Their motto, their creed, is: "never let a crisis
go to waste."
They will pour into the streets to save the live of a condemned murderer -- or -- take the life of an unborn baby.
They have shown a great tendency to worship nature rather than nature's God -- to worship creation, rather than the Creator.

they writhe in self-hate, amid pustules of resentment, their reason
clouded by anger, guilt, doubt, and their own self-loathing. They have
yet to understand the oppression they complain of is self-inflicted by
the weight of the guilt they feel for living in a country like America
and taking advantage of the freedom and the liberty -- freely given them
-- while they snipe at, and openly attack, the very foundations of the
country that has been so very kind to them.
The rancid attitude
of the left has poisoned the American political process and has infected
the American citizenry so deeply that a total breakup of the country
would not be unexpected.
The only joy they seem to be able to
attain is by creating a mob in the streets where they make complete and
utter fools of themselves (to the amusement of of millions) by
protesting the very thing(s) that makes America great, unique, and
If the description above seems to fit the symptoms
of a mental disorder to you, the reader, I must confess that I had the
same reaction when reading over them a second time. It is cause for
wonder, is it not?
I feel sadness and sorrow for the political
left. Paraphrasing the scriptures: "They, among all men, are the most
to be pitied."
