2001-11-15 12:05:33 AM  
And this is a fight that must be won. The hippie libral goombaas are gonna go down.
 
2001-11-15 12:14:43 AM  
hippies piss me off!!!

But, he already made all the good comments! Oh, well, how about this: Much like old dog dung left put in the sun too long, the hippy drivel gets old and crusty and you've seen its like before.

After the last eight weeks (give or take) of watching the ultra left biatch and moan about what a big bully the USA is, I suddenly feel so.....smug. I think I'll go shave, just to honor the newly liberated Afghan people.

I smirk in your general direction.

A comment fight would be giving the terrorists what they want!

Excuse me if i think for myself and don't jump on the flag waving/gun toting pickup truck that is the U.S. right now. I just don't think we should bomb people and I have as much right to say that as everyone else who wants to nuke random countries in the middle east. Let the flaming begin :)

hippies smell. discuss amongst yourselves.

Some of the harshest critics of the peace movement are liberal/progressive columnists themselves.

"Looking at some of the mind-rotting tripe that comes my way from much of today's left, I get the impression that they go to bed saying: What have I done for Saddam Hussein or good old Slobodan or the Taliban today?"

I haven't read ANYTHING this harsh from the American right.

Screw you all! HIPPIES RULE!!!!! just kidding, but hippies really do rule. I don't know about all this political crap, but the hippies i know are more friendly than 3/4's of the worlds population. GO HIPPIES!!!

Phishy, freedom of speech does not imply a freedom from criticism.

You offer a nice pithy comment "I just don't think we should bomb people", yet offer no real alternative. And then you wonder why people jump on you ...

Hippies are friendly...sure. Friendly people don't sit outside my window banging on their farking drum for hours at a time. I have a different word for those people.
 
2001-11-15 12:27:55 AM  
Phishy, im with you.

I also take offense at the forced patriotism going on. If someone wants to be patriotic, thats great. if the dont, dont yell and biatch and force them to be.

And dont call people American haters if they disagree. I dissagree with this entire war. I disagree with what we are doing now. But i love america, dearly. But i also see how we can change for the better. There are a million things that are great about this country, and a million things that can be better. Since when does excercizeing your right to free speech and your right to petition your government become a crime?

Really. Shows what being pessimistic and hypersensitive gets ya... absolutely nothing, except a big kick in the pants when you're proven wrong.

Of course, taking any extreme is calling for a good pants-kick at some time or another.

But hyper-liberals deserve it. If only because I usually don't agree with a word they say, and as everyone knows, the world and its opinions evolve around I, the mighty, omnipotent and quintessential Lady Millicent!!
 
2001-11-15 12:28:31 AM  
watch your local hippies crawl into a hole, mumbling to themselves: "I'm like rubber, you're like glue. What bounces off of me . . . "
 
2001-11-15 12:29:12 AM  
This article was good, in my opinion.

Time to Fark !

Hippie libral goombaas, its now official. You can all muster on fb's man missle.
 
2001-11-15 12:33:53 AM  
Goddamn it, how come anyone who ever expresses a liberal opinion is automatically labeled a hippy? Do you even know what hippies are? Do you know any hippies? WTF is wrong with hippies?
 
2001-11-15 12:34:29 AM  
We need one of these.

If everyone was a hippie, there'd be no need for heaven. We'd already be there!
 
2001-11-15 12:36:31 AM  
Brett... don't be a hippy. Hippy.
 
2001-11-15 12:39:25 AM  
I don't mind being called a hippie by every rednecked, right-wing, gun-toting, Pat Robertson-following closet racist homophobe that comes along. Bring it on, we can be nasty too. :)
 
2001-11-15 12:41:17 AM  
FEH....YEAH RIGHT!!!!
 
2001-11-15 12:41:55 AM  
Seriously though, I really respect Christopher Hitchens, if you read the article, you'll see that he mentions that he's for nuclear disarmament. He's also the author of "The Trial of Henry Kissinger", in which he exposes some of the darker secrets of American foreign policy. He's no friend of the republican party establishment, you can be sure of that.
 
2001-11-15 12:43:53 AM  
Damn, and I was going to go impregnate someone in honor of fb.
 
2001-11-15 12:45:29 AM  
stpickwell: I agree completely, I love when people pick each other apart, it's good mental exercise :). But everytime someone posts something anti-war on fark they just get flamed with "dirty hippy" comments. I get worried that people lose the ability to think for themselves and just digest whatever jibberish newspeople on TV tell them. If you disagree with something I say, fine, tell me why (which you did above, props).
 
2001-11-15 12:46:50 AM  
Sounds like hippy talk to me.
 
2001-11-15 12:46:53 AM  
There aren't any trees in the desert to hug. That is why we should bomb them.
 
2001-11-15 12:48:48 AM  
Of course hippies are friendly. They're all constantly stoned, and they don't have jobs, so there's less stress in their lives.
 
2001-11-15 12:50:38 AM  
Ambercat-
How, just how, are you going to go about this?
Let me say this- I hope you lack the necessary equipment to impregnate someone. However, if you have it, I don't need to know!! :-)

I enjoy the fact that a liberal democrat is attacking the peacenik socialist greens. Here is a clue the author is not a right winger, christian right or new moderate republican.

--------
On another topic if you think that black people, african americans..ect can make a good life for themselfs without a handout does not make you a bigot or racist. Thinking that they need the help of rich white liberals and cannot do it on their own is more discusting then being a racist.
 
2001-11-15 12:54:44 AM  
YOU ARE WRONG!
 
2001-11-15 12:57:54 AM  
>>and a million things that can be better
Let's please begin by repealing the ban on assault rifles, ok?
Thanks.

Everyone but me is dumb.

Die hippies.

I'm not generally in favor of indiscriminate bombing of just any random country that mouths off in our general direction. Nor do I think that our foreign policy is the best it could be.

But god help you if you come over thinking that blowing up our buildings and killing our people will help your situation any. If we were to sit back and NOT attack the Taliban and Al Quaeda (a'la Billy C), then they'd just come up with something bigger and badder. We could pull all our troops out of Saudi Arabia, and they'd just attack us for aiding Israel. We could just stop sending aid and arms to our allies, and before long we wouldn't HAVE any allies...

Ohh... those were yours! Gosh. I better put them back there. ;)

I'm just curious as to when the term "hippy" became such an insult. It seems to me that these terms are being tossed around without understanding the origin of the movement and th ideals of the movement (much like the terms "communist" and "socialist"). Most of the people who use these terms as insults can't even answer basic questions regarding the movements that the terms describe. I personally do not identify with the "hippy" movement in the 60's, but I am anti-war. I guess that means that a lot of very ignorant people, will be calling me a "hippy."

Greek I was going to rob a sperm bank!

Then I realized it would be way to much trouble to:
get the girl in bed
kick her out in the morning for being fat
dodge child support

um, help me here fb, what else do you do to your women?

oh yeah, find them a 'cover' boyfriend to care for my bastard seed.

No problem. Actually I've seen a fair # of trolls on both sides. Rei and Fb- are hard-hitting intellectuals against and for the war, but they are not trolls.

I've reached the conclusion independently. I read the Washington Times and Post, and I surf guardian.co.uk and telegraph.co.uk with equal gusto.

Read everything and you'll know everything.

Well, we might define "hippy"as any element of the "new left" who embraces the Port Huron Statement; the 60s youth culture's Mein kempf/Magna Carta (depending on your perspective)

I don't usually allow myself to get into political disputes such as the one that's developing here but since I've had a few rum n cokes I don't really care at the moment...anyhow,

Left-wing liberals..."Gee let's act this way and say stuff like this and wouldn't it be neat if it really worked out this way? It just seems right, don't you think? I'm really feeling better about myself now! Group hug!"

Right-wing republicans..."I'm sorry, but it just doesn't happen that way, this is how it really is"

I might be biased perhaps, but after all, isn't that what makes all this so much fun?

I'm going to bed now and look forward to reading all the sissy-la-la pansy-ass comments from the "look at me, I'm so pensive and eclectic" liberals in the morning.

If I offended anybody, oh gee I'm sorry.

Android- that's a bum link. check the spelling.
 
2001-11-15 01:55:14 AM  
Not every liberal is a hippy, I've met real hippies and they suck worse than normal liberals. Liberals should also relise though that not everyone on the right is relgious (I loath relgious right groups) or gun-toting or a redneck (ok I admit I am gun-toting).
