Just a wonderful post over at The American Thinker about why the left doesn’t understand conservatives, but how we do understand the “progressives”. I just wish I could write as well as this:
But we also know that when liberals look at conservatives, no such courtesy or openness of mind is extended. They don’t see considered issues, critical thought, or the faintest possibility of reason. They see white trash men waving bibles at teen brides, while a gaggle of kids groom each other for lice on a cracked linoleum floor. ‘Bitter clingers’ who mindlessly adhere to second-amendment rights so they can shoot baby possum off a tin fence on slow friday nights. The other sort of conservative invariably invokes 19th century robber barons, plutocrat industrialists swollen with loot plundered from the proletariat, abating their whipping of Dickensian child labor just long enough to polish a monocle.
The whole thing is very much worth your time. And I will swallow my jealousy and get to work on my writing skills. Which is probably another conservative thing liberals don’t get. I know I need to work harder – they just expect someone to forgive their spelling.
