The Democratic Underground Thread Of The Day: All Republicans Are Evil!
When you think about the word “evil,” what comes to mind? Maybe the Nazis, Stalin, Mao, or Saddam Hussein? How about serial killers or terrorists? Perhaps you even think of some comic book villain whose goal is to destroy the world!
On the other hand, if you’re a liberal member of the Democratic Underground thinking about the word “evil,” the first thing that probably comes to mind is Republicans — and not just the big name Republicans either. The Republican minister? Evil! The Republican soldier? Evil! The Republicans reading RWN right now? Evil!
Just read this thread at the Democratic Underground called, “Are the Republicans EVIL?” and look at most, but not all, of the replies to the question posed in the title. There sure are lots of liberals who think all Republicans are evil people…
shenmue: Yes. Simple answer.
Yoda Yada: “Yes. They certainly do not advocate “Peace on Earth…Goodwill Toward Men”. Now…that’s not very Christian of them, is it
durrrty libby: I don’t buy this excuse anymore “I know people who are registered “one issue only” Rethugs”
Sorry , that is not possible because, even if they disagree with much of the platform, they still vote it. Sort of like guilty by association.
So yes they are all evil, even if only by association. They are still enablers or really really dumb.”
mitchum: Nor do I anyone who still identifies themselves as a republican is complicit in the chicanery and murderous actions
Skittles: short answer: YES. long answer: HELL F***ING YES
Oregonian: Yes. They are a cancer on the nation. The last five years have made that clear.
samsingh: yes and many more disgusting things. they are supported a mass murderer and all things that are against America.
Robertwf: Evil. without a doubt they are certified, guatenteed, and verified 100% evil
MrBenchley: Hannah Arendt wrote of the “banality of evil” in covring the trial of Eichmann…who thought of himself as a cog in a machine and focused on the trivia of his everyday routine, ignoring the evil that routine aided.
Something like that is going on with Republicans.
zonmoy: yes. they are evil men who worship an evil god.
C_U_L8R: Pure Concentrated Evil. false christians filled with hate and fear who desire to put the world in bondage and extract all the value and profit they can from their spoils of their pillage. May they all suffer unfortunate doom.
While these comments are ridiculous, they’re also completely consistent with the sort of commentary you get from liberals like Michael Moore, Howard Dean, & Ted Rall. If you hate Republicans and everything they stand for, think Bush is Hitler, and run around claiming Republicans hate black people and want to poison the air and water, then you’re in essence calling Republicans evil, even if you don’t use the word. These comments at the DU are really nothing more than lefties who’re taking the rhetoric of prominent liberals to its natural conclusion.
