It seems when liberals protest, no matter what they do or say, they are merely getting involved, trying to make a difference and exercising their rights as Americans. When conservatives protest, they are proving they are violent Nazis, anti-American and racists.
Liberals never have to debate a policy (or even read a controversial bill) or stick to facts. When they can get personal, mock and vilify, this is thoughtful statesmanship. If conservatives focus on an issue, they are mean-spirited and racist, while the issue is ignored.
Liberals always try to help the little guy; they are noble. Conservatives always try to line the pockets of the rich and are venal, ignoble and racist. When a black person is a liberal, like Rep. Charles Rangel, pointing out his lapses is racist. When a black person is a conservative, like Justice Clarence Thomas, he is a racist and must be insulted and impugned. It is impossible for a liberal to be a racist, even if he was a member of the KKK. It is impossible for a conservative not to be a racist, even if he is black.
Liberals are highly intelligent and above reproach, while conservatives are stupid, the butt of jokes and of low morals. Conservatives can do no right and liberals can do no harm. Does anyone really believe this?
