Vitriol on the Left...Ha Ha Ha...Too Much

Poor James at Wigderson Library & Pub. His feelings have been hurt. He didn't like what Belle at Leaning Blue posted, so he counters with the "poor poor College Republicans" jab and the classic "vitriol on the left" uppercut. Bwah ha ha.

I remember James and the College Republicans at UWM and I can tell you they dished it out pretty good and usually anonymously.

The "vitriol on the left" line is too good to pass up. We've done this once before, but here are a few more:

Rush Limbaugh

I'm talking about the activists. I'm talking about the leaders of these. These are the original feminazis, folks, if you want me to go back in time and define the term for you. Every abortion possible must happen. Every abortion that can happen, that doesn't happen, is a setback for the cause.

As a young broadcaster in the 1970s, Limbaugh once told a black caller: "Take that bone out of your nose and call me back." A decade ago, after becoming nationally syndicated, he mused on the air: "Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?"

'What about Hillary? What about Hillary?' So, I told them, 'I'm not worried about Hillary. She puts her pants on one leg at a time like every other guy does.' "

Sean Hannity

"[W]hy wouldn’t anyone want to say the Pledge of Allegiance, unless they detested their own country or were ignorant of its greatness?"

Ann Coulter

My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building.

We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war.

Liberal soccer moms are precisely as likely to receive anthrax in the mail as to develop a capacity for linear thinking.

Pat Robertson

The founding document of the United States of America acknowledges the Lordship of Jesus Christ because we are a Christian nation.

Feminism is a socialist, anti-family, political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.

These are some of the tamer ones because I don't want to offend James and the other College Republicans too much. So a question: The constant Hillary innuendos, Clinton slap downs, etc. are okay because...why? Get off your high horse, James...the vitriol is pretty thick on both sides of the aisle.

3 Swings of the bat:

Tim, Robertson has been routinely denounced by much of the Right. Both Robertson and Coulter (who was fired by National Review Online) have been mocked on my site.

As for the supposed "anonymous" attacks, you cannot name one time I or a staffer at the UWM Times anonymously attacked anyone, or for that matter was there anytime during the period I attended UWM the College Republicans anonymously attacked anyone. Furthermore, our criticisms were direct and honest criticisms.

As for Rush Limbaugh, he gives as good as he gets, and he gets far worse than anything he's said or written (think Al Franken). As for Sean Hannity's comment, well, if the truth hurts...

No James, you're right. I can't name one time. Of course, they happened 17+ years ago. I do remember that they hurt then, as much as you claim they hurt you.

Also, they were honest and direct criticisms in your mind. Not to the people on the other end.

And I notice you can't remember one either.

Limbaugh deserved everything he got from Franken and more. That you defend him is a sad statement on your morals.

Robertson is only denounced when the heat gets too much.

And yes, you have mocked Coulter, but thousands others nod their heads when (s)he speaks and I don't see Hannity and Colmes, O'Reilly and the other blowhards banning her from their shows.

Other Side said...

Regarding Hannity, I recall the German people sang the praises of their "master race" and of "Deutschland Uber Alles."

Why can't you see the awful light you show America when you claim greatness for us. Others see us as arrogant, conceited and...pathetically immature.

We have to live on this planet with these people...and right now most can't stand us.
