Never Mind the Glaring Hypocrisy

When a committed Democrat like Lanny Davis, the former White House Special Counsel to President Clinton, starts to see how deranged and totally unhinged Liberal America has become, then you know that it’s bad. But even when he finally admitted to the true nature of modern day liberalism he still could not hold back his own hatred.

(Bigotry and hate aren't just for right-wingers anymore) My brief and unhappy experience with the hate and vitriol of bloggers on the liberal side of the aisle comes from the last several months I spent campaigning for a longtime friend, Joe Lieberman. This kind of scary hatred, my dad used to tell me, comes only from the right wing-- in his day from people such as the late Sen. Joseph McCarthy, with his tirades against "communists and their fellow travelers".

I came to believe that we liberals couldn't possibly be so intolerant and hateful, because our ideology was famous for ACLU-type commitments to free speech, dissent and, especially, tolerance for those who differed with us. And in recent years-- I held on to the view that the left was inherently more tolerant and less hateful than the right… Now, in the closing days of the Lieberman primary campaign, I have reluctantly concluded that I was wrong. The far right does not have a monopoly on bigotry and hatred and sanctimony.

So Davis is making a point about how the left has devolved into a pack of hyenas, who are full of hate and intolerance, by misguidedly attacking “right-wingers” with slurs of bigotry and racism. I suppose, in the liberal world, denouncing your party’s hatred by using hate-filled attacks on people is not a contradiction.

Usually Liberals are so deep in their own hypocritical world that they can’t see the forest for the trees, nor do they want to. His statements in this article prove this to be true. He came to believe that liberals couldn’t be intolerant because his ideology is that of the ACLU and he held onto the view that the left was “inherently more tolerant and less hateful than the right”. The kicker was when he said, “The far right does not have a monopoly on bigotry and hatred and sanctimony.” Lanny Davis can’t even see that he is what he is denouncing.
