Do 'liberals' have "The propagandized, fear-frenzied, one-sided, belief that they are right."?

"Screaming, thuggish clumps who knowingly disrupt public discourse."?

You mean those mostly older --many retired- folks who spoke out against ObamaCare at twon hall meetings last year?

Yeah, they were thuggish clumps.

Oh the "incivility" of 2008-09. Makes one miss the Left Wing "Bushitler" civilty of 2003-2007....

Andy have you forgotten the incivility of the 60's and 70's, 80's and 90's? Thank God for whatever bit of free press we do have. It isn't much, but we don't want a monolithic press that has only one side of the story.

You are not the only person who has spent 50 years studying the Weimar.
Thank God there other news sources besides CNN & MSNBC, or even Public Radio.

With the proliferation of "news" channels, perhaps the problem lies in the fact that we tune in to the "news" channel that reflects our own belief structure... whether it be MSNBC on the left or FOX on the right. It only confirms our own beliefs/prejudices. So we only see the stuff that fits our own vision of the universe. Anything that challenges our "truth" is avoided or ridiculed.

Used by both parties.

Fascism and bullying are also used synonymously by both parties.

"Andy have you forgotten the incivility of the 60's and 70's, 80's and 90's?"

I remember the hatred for blacks, gays, people of faiths other than Christian whites. The beating and killing of people who may have disagreed with unjust wars. So on and so on, no we certainly will not go back to those days.

The truth is much easier to find nowadays. However, it isn't clear to those with deep run prejudices.
