CONSERVATIVES VS. LIBERALS: THE NATURE OF THE BEAST
by "Freedom Man"
It all began a hundred thousand years ago on a ledge in front of a cave. A female homo sapiens walked by, attracting the attention of a male. The male stepped forward and smacked her over the head with his club. WHACK! He then dragged the unconscious female into his cave for sex.
One day there were two males standing in front of a cave when a female walked by. The first raised his arm to club the female, but the second male communicated to him that clubbing females over the head to have sex was not nice. WHACK! WHACK! The first male stepped over the unconscious second male and proceeded to rape the female. On that day the first liberal paid the price for expressing a new idea.
Things didn't change much for thousands of years until the advent of projectile weapons. This was first symbolized by the David and Gol- iath story in the Bible, where the big strong brute was laid flat by the small but smarter boy. Once brute strength was no longer the control- ling factor in social interaction, liberal ideas slowly gained a foothold in human culture, and civilization began.
Throughout human history, the price for advocating tolerance and progressive change has been paid in threats, beatings, excommunica- tion, incarceration, torture, murder, assassination, and execution. Countless liberals have paid the ultimate price for their humanity. Though Jesus Christ is the most famous, names in recent history that come to mind are Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., John Lennon, and Robert Kennedy.
Today there are many conservatives - individuals, groups, and na- tions - who use threats and violence to silence the voices of reason, tolerance, and progress. Here in America it is seen in racists and homo- phobes beating blacks and gays, sometimes to death, not for money or out of anger generated by interactive cause, but because of relig- ious or racial intolerance and secular bigotry.
Alan Berg on talk radio was a strong voice against a conservative organization called the Aryan Nation. For thus exercising his freedom of speech, he was shot dead while walking his dog in front of his house.
David Rice is a man on death row in Washington State who has no remorse whatsoever for entering the home of a family of four and carving out their living hearts only because he heard they were "liberals." He got their names from a Democratic Party membership list.
Right-wingers Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols killed 168 men, women, and children as an act of protest. What liberals have ever committed such an abominable atrocity?
The most abominable atrocity in several decades is the 9/11 terror- ist attacks in which thousands of innocent civilians were murdered. The alleged perpetrators, Osama Bin Laden and the al Qaeda-Tali- ban terrorists, epitomize the right-wing religious fundamentalist men- tality.
Some believe that the 9/11 attacks were deliberately allowed to happen, exacerbated, or even perpetrated by radical right-wing elements within our own government to further their fascistic agenda. Two buildings were hit by planes, but THREE collapsed. The evidence that the three collapsed buildings were brought down with demolition explosives put in place BEFORE the attacks is very strong.
Arguing that such horrendous crimes are not political in nature or that they are not done primarily by conservatives is utter nonsense.

CONSERVATIVES OR LIBERALS?
The historic, undeniable truth is that these evils are THE NATURE OF THE CONSERVATIVE BEAST!
Conservatives have distorted and demonized the word "liberal," whose true political meaning is favoring progressive change, human- istic values, and opposition to authoritarianism. They identify it with governmental waste and tolerance of criminality, when in fact they themselves are guilty of abuses such as corporate welfare bail-outs and tax evasion, fraud against investors, and other white-collar crime. Conservatives fear and oppose all change and progress be- yond "what's in it for me?"
At the core of conservatism is the Machiavellian bully -- the des- potic practitioner of "might makes right," craving wealth and power, and willing to use any and all means to get them. Conservatism is the philosophy of the caveman wearing a business suit.
