Conservatives are not the enemies of Progressives; they are simply ideologues who have an opposing viewpoint of what methods are best used to determine the course of the American experiment. I don’t believe that all Conservatives are evil or are even driven by racial or social bigotries while those traits are a common thread in their, in my opinion, base as it applies to the current President of the United States. I believe that all people have the capacity to become what Conservatives would consider immoral. I think it was immoral personally for President Clinton to get a blow job from Monica Lewinsky while married to Hillary Rodham Clinton. Yet I still respect and admire and yes forgive him, even though it’s none of my business, for those actions because he was and is a great politician in many other ways.
Progressives can understand that Human Beings have flaws and can still be Human Beings. There is no moral purity test regarding sex for Progressives it appears to be one for Conservatives which they fail miserable at day in and day out. To me as a Progressive sex is as natural a daily function as breathing; to Conservatives it appears sex is something so traumatic and fraught with the potential for embarrassment that it has to be sanctioned by a deity of one’s own choosing and kept locked in a box until a ceremony is performed. A commitment to love a person, or even persons, for life is a powerful thing that I respect and live by; to make it a golden cage to lock up the sexuality of women simply for the pleasure of men is a crime against Humanity.
That brings me to the true nature of how I see the modern American Conservative as a creature driven by greed. It’s not just the money or the sex or that sweaty palmed feeling of delight they get by having their grip on the levers of power and social control alone. It’s a combination of the ability to judge others while not being judged themselves that plays a major part in the Conservative pantheon of hypocrisies. The ability to rewrite history [Reagan had extramarital affairs, smoked pot, gave amnesty to undocumented immigrants and grew the size of government] and define their opposition in terms that cannot be proven with facts all the while appealing to the highest authority, the Creator of the Universe who can condemn you to and Eternity of Fire and Suffering, which can punish all those to stray from their control.
Some Conservatives call Progressives a collective or hive mind. In reality take a look at the long list of members of the GOP who have given the slightest indication that they would work with President Obama on any issue and you will see the long knives out to slice those “traitors” and RINOs to ribbons. if the president gave ever American a puppy and a pound of gold the Americans for Cats and Platinum Party would spring to life overnight as an allegedly grassroots organization brought to life by a Sean Hannity closing comment on his Fox News ahow about how platimun is so much prettier than gold and how much more affectionate kittens are than puppies. FreedomWorks would then hire a fuckable looking blond in her early thirties with a calming Midwestern accent to be their face and posters would be dotting every intersection in the flyover states with a picture of an adorable kitten and an American Liberty platinum coin.
Conservatives now need even more help to get their message of fear and loathing out to their 37 million strong die hard, yet dying base. Black crime reports scare the shit out of conservative men and women alike. The reality of America is that a conservative white man or woman is far more likely to be killed by someone they know that is white, quite often from their own community in these places or die by their own hand than by the hand of a black man or a Latino. I’m not saying it never happens people are often found in places where the ignorant tenth of a group of people can cause them harm. But the facts are crystal clear on the matter of what most often kills white Americans in an unnatural manner–another white person, themselves, and usually with a legal firearm.
While MSNBC is clearly the Progressive version of Fox News, politically, it works for many young Progressives because they at least present facts when they show the Right where it has gone wrong. It isn’t propaganda when you show an unedited clip of a conservative woman saying that she doesn’t want niggers around her and then refusing to apologize for it–that’s called a news story. it is propaganda when a failed VP candidate is given time to explain why her home spun idea that President should be Impeached for violating her beliefs in what the Founding Fathers of America meant two hundred plus years ago.
I write this article today as a direct response to Cluster at BlogsForVictory not to try to convince him that he’s on the wrong side of history. This article is about what people believe. On my side I have diversity and the ultimate freedom to be yourself and live your life the way you wish within the law of the land. On their side you have to live not only by the law of the government, but the codified bigotries of a religion raised to state religion by their requirement, the laws of an entire gender because this is the only way they can control female sexuality and the laws of their own greed which says to all unlike them “you must work” all the while hanging a sign in their shops that says “Niggers, Faggots, Dykes, Wetbacks and Atheists need not apply.”
