Do Liberal Activists Hate America?

Some liberals loathe America and hate conservatives. Before you dismiss this thought, read this:

... I saw a T-shirt in a Palm Springs shop that said, "So many right-wing Christians, so few lions." ... Nothing funnier than religious believers being ripped to shreds by wild animals in front of cheering pagans.

I'm intrigued by the liberal furor over Karl Rove's remark about the difference in reactions to 9/11. ...

Everything Rove said is absolutely true. I entertained at a 50th anniversary party for a well-known feminist leader about 10 days after 9/11. Much of the liberal elite of the Twin Cities was present. I was wearing a little flag pin that elicited considerable mockery. In a post-performance conversation with 3 prominent DFL [Democratic party] activists, they all agreed that 1) America had it coming 2) much of the rest of the world cheered the attacks and that was not a bad thing; 3) the attack was purely a "criminal" matter that required the issuing of indictments, but surely not a war, and finally and most horrifically, a direct quote, "At least we got rid of Barbara Olson."

... [T]hese people felt free to be so frank and unguarded because they absolutely assumed that I shared their worldview. ... I told them I disagreed completely and left. That was the final straw launching me from my lifelong stint as a Democrat to the Republican party.

The attitude of the Democrat activists exemplifies the far left's loathing of America and conservatives such as Barbara Olson, wife of Bush's Solicitor General Ted Olson and a passenger on the hijacked plane that crashed into the Pentagon. The comment about Barbara Olson reveals a shockingly sick attitude. Keep this in mind as you listen to the liberals' ideas on the war on terror and their reaction to Rove's comments.

If that is not enough to convince you, consider that what some liberals will do to celebrate Independence Day: "This July 4th is Flag Burning Day!"
