Way to Tear 'Em a New One!

A friend of mine quoted an acquaintance as saying:
Its [sic] liberal pussies like you that keep this country from being what it should be, a protector of the free, not some pussy liberal country that gives a first class citizenship to homosexuals, and a second class citizenship to minorities, and a third class citizenship to middle class white ppl [sic].
This is typical ignorant freeper bullshit, of course, so my friend replied as follows:
Now. For clarification.
  1. Liberalism is the ideology that protects individual freedom and liberty, not conservatism.

  2. "Protector of the free". Well, in order to be a protector of the free, you can't be socially conservative. To be opposed to gay marriage (sexist viewpoint), is to be at the core anti-free.

    Conservatives and Republicans are those who try to seize civil and social freedoms.

  3. Pussy liberal country that gives first class citizenship to homos? Um, actually, the liberal countries of Europe don't give first class citizenship to anyone and the very idea of giving first-class status to any one group goes against its VERY ideology.

    Equality of opportunity and equality of rights (example: giving privileges on the basis of individuals, not on the basis of their gender (this is why a ban on gay marriage is wrong), or their race (this is why segregation is wrong) are cornerstones of liberalism.

    I assure you, the only people hurting middle-class white people would be the Republicans in Washington D.C. who are working for corporations and are running a pro-corporate power madhouse.

  4. Now, I understand your love of White Anglo Saxon Hetero Protestant Males (I mean, the KKK might have an opening for you) is strong.

    But, those white anglo saxon hetero protestant middle class males really aren't the ones being oppressed or repressed in this country right now.

    I'd have to say it's pretty unamerican to hate repressed minorities and love repressing majorities. But...

    Hey! Nazi germany has just the environment for you.

    Not only do they hate homosexuals and minorities, they KILL THEM!!

    Perfect for you, T——.

    Too bad, it's 2006, and not the 1930s.

    So I guess you'll just have to settle for the Islamic Republic of Iran--the Iranian president shares your views on homosexuals. He has an attitude similar to yours.

    As do most conservative Muslim Males who hate the West.
T——, it isn't me that hates America, it's actually you that hates the entire West and what it stands for.
In my opinion that's a cogent, concise, and utterly scathing smackdown of this bigoted right-wing jackhole. (By the way, I've quoted it exactly as he wrote it, except that I've omitted the name and identifying information about said jackhole, since this is a publicly visible blog. Originally it wasn't intended for wide publication.)

I predict my friend will write lots more of the same, and publish. But he has one more year of high school!

Bushistas and your ilk: be afraid, be very afraid.

Pretty good, especially for a high schooler. But the Liberal v. Conservative thing isn't quite that simple. Classical Age of Reason Rationalist Liberal philosophy compared to the Conservatives of the same time (the late 1700s) was exactly as stated. However since that time we've seen the rise of the Social Liberals that would have individuals give up their rights for the good of the whole. And then go further and parcel out only those rights as might be allowable for the good of the state. That takes you way out to and past Marxist-Leninism and dictatorship from the Left. Compared to that, what does it mean to be a modern Conservative or a modern Liberal? Throne and Altar, Rights of Man, Communitarianism, or All for the State?

Remember also that his original audience is a bonehead freeper and would not be hip to these nuances.
