This is too great. I actually laughed out loud when I read this - what a joke!!!!! Honey, get that plank out of your eye before complaining about the splinter in somebody else's.
----"The conservative groups you belong to want to force their beliefs on everyone and that's not the way it works in America."
Oh please, that is the hallmark of the Democratic/Liberal agenda:
abortion - we don't care that you think abortion is murder, not only did our activist judges contort the Constitution and bypass the democratic process, but we want you to pay for it too. And we don't care that an abortion is an invasive procedure that carries definite risks - your daughter may not be able to get her ears pierced without your permission - but we'll make sure she can get an abortion without your knowledge.
gun control - we don't like guns and we don't think anyone should have them, so we will exploit a tragedy and push for laws limiting law abiding citizens from exercising their 2nd Amendment rights - doesn't matter that we don't enforce existing laws and that those we push wouldn't have made a difference in the tragedy being exploited.
freedom of speech - only if it's speech we the Left approve of - if a conservative somehow gets an invitation to speak at a campus, we'll shout them down - or demand the university rescind the invitation - or destroy the conservative publications that conservative students try to hand out
(or better still, let the IRS harass you)
----"making mountains out of mole hills on a regular basis trying to justify what you do and say no matter what the facts are"
Oh, you mean like:
when a conservative argues that welfare only fosters dependence and doesn't offer real hope - the Left responds that it is only because we hate the poor and want children and old people to starve
"they're coming for our children,...for the sick,...for the disabled..." - John Lewis
when a Republican president takes us into a war, it can't be because he and his advisors believe it is in the best interests of our own national security - it MUST be out of greed for oil and to benefit our greedy business interests.
when a conservative laments the state of our public education system and says there must be a better answer than just throwing more money into a failing system and wants to explore other options - the Left says the Right just doesn't care about children.(but who was it that tried to end the voucher program for poor black children in DC, hmmm)
And these are just the tip of the iceberg.
----"You read a post that differs with what you think and never even consider the other side, just put it down as stupid and inaccurate, without even checking to see if the facts refute what you say."
The hypocrisy of this speaks for itself.
Unfortunately (perhaps fortunately?), you'll get people that will disagree on principle, some that will disagree because they don't like the facts, some that will disagree because they're clueless and uneducated and some that will disagree just because they don't like what you have to say at any time.
