Why Liberals Hate Me!

May 19th, 2007

The reason most liberals hate guys like me is that I don’t fit that typical “conservative” stereotype. Yah know…the white, upper-class, Capitol Hill Republican from the south who listens to country music.  No, I have no problem with my fellow brethren just mentioned because for the most part we hold true to the same conservative values; but that’s just not me.  I’m a new breed of conservative…think Conservative 2.0; yet to be fully defined. I consider myself a second generation of conservative thought and attitude.

Here are some other reasons why I get no love from liberals (in no particular order of importance):

  • I’m a minority in their eyes and aren’t all minorities supposed to be democrats? (although I consider myself an American first)
  • I’m educated with a graduate degree (with no financial assistance from the government)
  • I’m charismatic, hip and urban of course
  • I’m a recovering democrat (really, I am.)
  • I know my [email protected]#! Meaning…I’m informed about many issues and make uninformed liberals look silly, especially the ones in San Francisco that try and debate me
  • I hold firm in my belief structure; even though I am surrounded by liberal ideology and actions

I, personally dont hate liberals at all. Some of my best friends, co-workers, former managers are all liberals; and they are great people.  Its all about tolerance, right? Isnt that what all the left wing groups cry about when they want acceptance?

    Ah yes...falling into stereotypes..people are people, and opinions tend to change as we get older, go through different life experiences and such. Nothing is written in stone.

  2. Jeremy Says:

    Well I guess I would fit into the typical description a lot more than you but liberals still hate me. I guess we do have something in common!

    I love the blog and hope you continue to be informed and continue in your recovery from being a democrat!

  3. Deb Says:

    I enjoyed your response to the post I wrote. Politics seem to bring out emotion in some people more than others. I just distance myself from emotional attachment, and just try to see end results. I actually enjoyed reading your angles and there isn't any "in the face" going on here..just some thoughts of a person!

  4. Left and Proud Says:

    dude - you are a right-wing nut case! You need therapy, you freakin bastard!

  5. Urban Conservative Says:

    I'll respond to the four comments in this post.

    Deb - Yes, I agree. I think we all have a tendency of putting certain people in buckets; only to be surprised later when they aren't who/what we thought they were.

    Jeremy - thanks for the comment. I hope you weren't offended. It's just that many of the folks I meet still think that all conservatives are white, upper class males. It's kind of sad. I get ridiculed because I tend to place stereotypes on liberals but most of the time it's only to piss them off!!

    Left and Proud - It's people like you that keep me writing and writing and writng. You put no thought at all into your post. Next time, after you call me names, maybe you can add a "because" so that people know where you are coming from!

    i'm out.

  7. liberal and mad Says:

    liberals hate you becasue you are an idiot!

  8. Shiznit Says:

    liberal and mad - that's so smooth how you call someone an idiot while misspelling "because". It seems the converse is true of your statement.

  9. Urban Conservative Says:

    Shiznit - thanks for the love!!! Appreciate it!

    I just had to respond after reading this- liberals are not some tight-knit group, walking in lockstep like the Republicans do. We are the big tent party of big ideas.

    Because you fall under a certain demographic doesn't mean anyone on the Left is going to hate you. Hate is not a motivator for us progressives. We simply want to stop the harm that is being done to our country by YOUR pick for a leader. If that means going toe-to-toe with you guys then so be it.

    Progressives and liberals are for the PEOPLE, as opposed to big business and the elite, moneyed upper crust of society. Why you conservatives feel this is evil or whatever is beyond me. We're working for YOU, even if you have thrown in with the corporatists and moneylenders.

    Here's a reminder of where your party came from, long before Enron, Phizer, and BP were writing campaign platforms;

    As one of your GOP Presidents once said;

    "We stand equally against government by a plutocracy and government by a mob. There is something to be said for government by a great aristocracy which has furnished leaders to the nation in peace and war for generations; even a democrat like myself must admit this. But there is absolutely nothing to be said for government by a plutocracy, for government by men very powerful in certain lines and gifted with "the money touch," but with ideals which in their essence are merely those of so many glorified pawnbrokers."

    -Teddy Roosevelt, 1913
