No, AJ; I have to firmly disagree here. You don't find the same kind of unreasoning hatred of liberals by conservatives, as you do in the reverse. You folks just assume us, and it, to be the same way, simply because your views are so deeply entrenched that you can't envision it being any other way. You're so used to being hateful of us that you think we're the same way.
That's entirely your opinion, and so be it. Though I have to say that it smacks of victim mentality (i.e. It's your fault not poor old me). But hell, whatever floats your boat.
We're not. We're frustrated, amused and bemused by liberals; we do not hate them. And it's always been that way
No offense, but it sure as hell doesn't look like it. That said, I don't think you're the only one man. I've seen many a liberal be just as frustrated, amused and bemused (not to mention occasionally bruised) by republicans/conservatives. We all have our assholes and asshats; here's hoping that the more rational and reasonable of us stick around.
On average conservatives are smarter, so they dont hate
My knee jerk reaction is to mention the snide comment that popped into my head, but I'll be the better person. Simply put, do you have proof? I remember reading about a study done by, I believe, Lazar Stankov, which shows that socially conservative individuals tend to have a negative correlation with cognitive ability. Naturally, this is all speculation - but honestly, i would trust more a study than your knee jerk reaction Doc, which has shown to be utterly and unforgivingly biased.
