somedude210: Caring about their fellow man?


Pretty much, yeah.

The older I get, the more I realize that, to be a capital-C Conservative in 2014, you need to be some combination of mean, angry, ignorant, and scared. And that's got to be a horrible way to live every day. It really makes me feel sorry for them, in a way. Which, I guess, is a very liberal thing to say.
 
2014-02-11 08:23:06 AM
Being nice? Whatever other "virtues" they may have, "nice" isn't one I'd choose.

As much as my father's turn to the right since retiring has been gut-wrentching, he hasn't gotten to be a capital-C Conservative. He actually admitted at my birthday dinner the other week that he was "impressed at how well Warren is doing in the Senate". It was a birthday miracle.

He still despises Markey but I can't really fault him for that. Markey is very much a liberal Kerry in more than just being a cure for insomnia.

Compassion and being nice are taken to the extreme by liberals?

It would take a truly heinous person to point out someone else is being too compassionate.

1) The way they eat those crackers.
2) They're near.
3) Well?! Just  look at them! You know they're up to no good!
4) Is it past 6:30? I need to go to bed.
5) I soiled myself again.

Yes, the Bible does say, "Judge not, that ye be not judged." However, it doesn't say there's no difference between the Bible and the Koran,....
It doesn't say that there is a difference either. I think if you look through the Bible, you won't see a single reference to the Koran. There's a reason...the bible kinda predates the Koran by a millenia or so. But, if you look through a Koran and the Old Testament, you're going to see references to a lot of the same characters. And, the Koran also has lots of moral guidance that is in alignment with the moral guidance of the bible. There's also some stuff in there that probably shouldn't be taken literally, and some stuff that seems patently absurd. But the Bible has the same issues too.

America is packed with angry, spiteful, nasty people who never give a dime to charity or personally help a soul; yet they consider themselves to be deeply compassionate for supporting harmful government programs with pleasant-sounding names
What's the "harmful government program with the pleasant-sounding name"?

If all you bring to the table is "nice," you don't have much to offer.
Sounds like you're one of those guys that when someone asks you to describe an unattractive person, you'll say, "Yeah, they're nice".

Tell that to Afghanistan or Iraq. Both nations are so diverse they want to murder each other.
I'd actually argue that Aghanistan and Iraq are definitely NOT diverse. They have just a few small sects of the population. They end up being HIGHLY divided as a result. Here in America we have people from all colors, classes, creeds. We are FAR more diverse than either of those two nations.

What a sad little article. Those are virtues that liberals may carry to excess, but conservatives barely indulge in at all. Who after all was it that said "extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice"?Once again, the underlying complaint is that white people are on the verge of ceasing to be the majority in this country. Cry some more.

I have met a lot of people who literally think we should wipe out the "Arabs" with nuclear weapons.  It's not an uncommon sentiment.

Well, to some extent American liberals doing those things (trying to be helpful, fair and inclusive) has helped create create the modern American conservative movement.

/Every time I see a Conservative demanding that religion be treated as science in schools, all I can think is "Well, there's the "multculturalism run rampant we were warned about!"

Let me guess, they say that it's due to terrorism? Because nothing else quite tells me that someone really hates terrorism than when they advocate blowing up innocent civilians in their target country.

Diversity is a strength? Tell that to Afghanistan or Iraq.

Holy crap, The US is about a million times more diverse. Dumbass doesn't realize that the only "diversity" in places like Iraq and Afghanistan is the specific flavor of the same farking religion that they ALL follow. It would be like if the US was only Protestants and Methodists, or something.

That's the point. If things are so terrible over there in Iraq. with two major ethnic groups, imagine how horrible they must be here, with dozens if not hundreds of them! Solution: get rid of all nonconforming ethnic groups. Or at least make sure they know their place.

Actually it turns out that people with strong right wing identification are actually less fair and compassionate. They score more highly on measures of loyalty and sanctity.

Of course these latter two are made up values because you can be loyal to anything but, you know, balance.

The problem is that conservatives truly believe there really ARE only two factions in the US: "Us" and "Them".  Thus you get the bizarre assertions that feminists want to implement Sharia law, or Richard Dawkins is sympathetic to Islam, or that poor people want government-subsidized health insurance to cover their gayness.  They can't comprehend the current diversity of America because they believe that everyone who is "Not Us" falls into a single homogeneous mass with the same beliefs and goals.  And likewise why they regularly have their "conservative purity litmus tests" to ensure their side is homogeneous as well.
