I love it when conservatives on the Vine attempt to accuse a liberal of playing dirty pool when they are guilty of engaging in it themselves.
Take the issue of tolerance, for example.
Conservatives just love to accuse liberals of being anti-Christian. Who, on the Democratic side has dared to call their sense of religious tolerance into question?
If Think Progress can do it, why can’t you?

However, the fact remains that while liberals are overly tolerant, most conservatives have no idea of the concept. We are all aware of the fact that whenever someone does not fit their limited view of the world, conservatives tend either harass that person (what they used to call 'joshing'!) or treat them with outright hostility and engage in blatant discrimination.
Remember when Bob Jones University enforced their racist dating policy not so long ago?
While other liberals are saddened to see what results from conservatives and their outright bullying, not this particular liberal! He knows what is about to come and loves to see that the puppy who was whooped has now become the pit bull in search of retribution-and he really loves it when the bullies cry foul!
Why don’t you?
This liberal laughs when a conservative makes a feeble attempt to accuse him of hypocrisy when it comes to the matter of tolerance because this liberal reads the posts of those who accuse him of such and he notices just how intolerant the accuser is!
This liberal reads the posts regarding immigrants, gays and lesbians and children born prior to the marriage of their parents from conservatives and notices that the view of conservative has not changed much since the genesis of the Civil Rights movement! He notices that conservatives will only attempt to parrot what liberals accomplish.
Liberals had the first major female presidential candidate, so conservatives advertised one as a running mate-24 years after the liberals beat them to it. While liberals elected a black president, conservatives pretend to present a black man as head of their political party. However the liberals know who is really in control, because the head of the Republican National Committee had to apologize to the white conservative talk show host!
The difference between this particular liberal and other liberals on the Vine (and elsewhere!) is that this particular liberal does not sing John and Yoko's Give Peace A Chance! He no longer believes that nonsense! Rather, he sings GWAR's A Fistful of Teeth because he tried the John and Yoko approach-and he realized a long time ago that does not work.
The only thing Give Peace A Chance ever accomplishes is it convinces the bully he can do whatever he want to his target because his target will never fight back.
Why is he convinced of that? He has heard too many liberals say, “We don’t want to stoop to their level.”
You may be a liberal, but if you served in the military, even you used a gun. I’ll give you an example.
I don’t know whether Alvin York was a conservative, a liberal or if he refused to vote at all. However, I do know that he was a pacifist and originally did not want to “answer the call” during World War I.
This pacifist killed 24 Germans and captured 132 others. He killed the first seventeen by sniping and the last seven were taken down with his pistol.
Hey! I think a farm is a great reward for leaving casting your personal beliefs aside. Besides, taking down all those krauts (I am of German heritage, so I can write that!) was the only way he was going to get home so he could establish that Bible college!
If Alivin York could take the Germans down by any means necessary, you as a liberal should be able to take down the Republican Party by any tactic necessary-no matter how dirty that tactic is.
Take advice from this great liberal who said on December 8, 1941: “Ladies and gentlemen, I hate war. Ladies and gentlemen, I declare war!”
I understand how liberals went from Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s quote to Ghandi’s “An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind,” and some of those people need to get the fact those who believe in that philosophy set themselves up to be victims. Let me put it to you this way: Dr. King knew he would not live to see the Obama presidency. In fact, he died the day after he said that he might not get to the Promised Land.
Believe me, if the Ghandi philosophy worked, those on the right would not be using the same tactics to alienate voters from our candidates.
Do you remember Gary Hart? He would have been a great president. I was just relieved when those on the right used that same tactic on Mayor Guiliani! We need to start using that tactic more on bastards like David Vitter! While we have used it on him in the past, we did not hammer that message in stone during the last election cycle, and that is why he is going to remain Lousiana’s junior Senator.
So, have you had enough, fellow liberals? Are you tired of those on the right lying to the American people with regard to our beliefs? Well, obviously not, if you don’t believe in muckraking. Every time those on the right create an unfounded allegation regarding one of ours, we should do the same to them.
Every time those on the right want to lie about someone’s spiritual beliefs, we should take their most popular candidate and do the same to them-although this time, I admit that we did not have to in the race for the seat for Delaware! That crazy bitch did it to herself!
You don’t want to do it? Okay, fine by me. However, be warned that George H.W. Bush trailed in the polls until the Willie Horton ad ran. The Harris poll learned that it resonated with 60% of the voters.
You know, liberals used to fight dirty-and we won handily in those days.
Here is the proof:
Had it not been for that ad, the Civil Rights Act and the Medicare Act (which today’s seniors who currently oppose Obama now enjoy, courtesy of another liberal!) would never have passed because Lyndon Johnson could have lost to Barry Goldwater. That ad secured President Johnson’s victory in 1964.
What tactic are you, my fellow liberals, willing to use to secure universal health care?
Either we dust off the Daisy ad or we lose everything and the country goes into darkness because those on the right will continue to lie to the American people about liberals are until we use their own tactics against them.
Don’t start with the “being the better person” and “finding inner-strength” nonsense, because that’s how liberals acquired a bad reputation in the first place. The Titanic floats better than that New Age junk.
So, what’s it going to be?
Remember that liberals were willing to use the bomb to win one war, and we need to bring back another kind of bomb to win this one.
