If there is one thing that Liberals are good at, its protesting

November 12th, 2006

Some of my very good friends and family members are liberal and we get along just fine, assuming we dont talk about politics or religion. In fact, I really admire them for their sincere and unwavering belief system (regardless of how insane those beliefs may be). On the other hand, my conservative friends think they are uninformed, hard-headed and even unreasonable. And, in many cases, depending on the particular individual all three may be true. 

As individuals, my liberal friends possess several positive qualities like being good parents, law abiding citizens and possess the most basic moral principles like kindness and integrity. But as a group, the one thing that separates them from conservatives is their great ability to protest; and I admire them for that. If conservatives could protest half as good as libs, we would be winning allot more elections.

The crazy a!# libs in San Francisco.

More libs in San Francisco.

Off to jail Cindy.

    This is so true. They are great at organizing. On a side note, did you see Sheehan's latest book singing...she said that she had a dream that she killed George Bush when he was a baby, or something like that.

    She is an absolute FREAK!

    I found a video that shows some of the book signing.


  3. How About We Throw All Christians, Muslims, and Hindus in Prison? » Conversations with a Conservative Says:

    [...] Below is an excerpt from an interview on November 11, 2022 with the Press Association and Elton John. He said there was a lack of religious leadership, particularly in world politics, and complained that people do not take to the streets to protest any more. Sir Elton said: I think religion has always tried to turn hatred towards gay people. Religion promotes the hatred and spite against gays. Organized religion doesnt seem to work. It turns people into really hateful lemmings and its not really compassionate. [...]

    I disagree with your comment that liberals are good at "protest." Their protesting skills are "good" only in the sense that they make their side sound stupider. I think that very few liberals can actually protest to make their voices heard or to steer public opinion in a general direction; often, they only call attention to themselves, making broad, sweeping generalizations in the process and causing greater rifts within the American political framework. Though some may see causing a stir as the most important measure in the effectiveness of a protest, I see its affects as the most important grade; and, merely angering conservatives, as most protests serve mainly to do, seems to achieve the antithesis of the desired affect these "successful protesters" wish to achieve--making real political change, as it just makes conservatives fight harder against them.

    Justin - great point. Perhaps I should have said that they are good at "assembling" and "organizing"; rather than protesting.

    I should also add that if conservatives were more effective at organizing rallies, protests, etc. we would be much farther in pushing conservative legislation and influencing public opinion, the mainstream media, etc.
