Honestly now. Let's confess up front that generalizations and blanket statements are exactly what they are and have obvious caviats and exceptions.
That being said, have a look at the current laundry list of psychological trash currently nailed to the walls of the liberal
On this day, May 12th 2005, you have:
1 post about how terrible military recruiters are.
1 post about a sexualized statue being built between two churches.
1 post about how abortion is okay because one day we will be able to make babies from our skin cells, containing such whoppers as "Brain activity is what makes humans beyond bacterium".

1 post misleading readers into thinking "creationism" is going to be taught in Kansas schools
2 posts about how homosexuality is super and anyone who thinks otherwise is an evil biggot.
1 post about an assassination attempt on Bush
1 post about Haliburton.. again.
1 post by a user whose icon is Pope Benedict XVI depicted with horns.
And they wonder why people think they're hostile to faith, tradition and America.
These people are the most virulent strain of hardcore humanist, fully anger ridden, driven by nothing but the deepest hatred for Bush, capitalism, Christians, the Pope, Haliburton, "pro-lifers", etc.
Ever notice too how most hard core lefties are involved in some sort of "alternative lifestyle"? They're into some bizzare music cult, like the goths, or they're into drugs, or some bizarre form of sexual expression. The routinely have tattoos, piercings in numerous places, and their contempt for anything they regard as "traditional" knows literally no bounds.
Today's hard core lefties are the same people you remember from high school. The socially backwards weirdos who clustered together on the side of the building during lunch to smoke cigarettes and sulk. They're the same people who never "fit in". They were always the last ones to be picked for the dodge-ball team in P.E. class. They gravitated towards one another's obvious weirdness and formed a social circle based on their inability to connect with society at large. Not surprisingly, these same people transferred their angst and their inability to socialize (which for a brief period during the 90's was known as being "alternative") and joined a litany of causes and crusades against white people, christians, corporate America... pick your bogey man.
The liberals of today are not the liberals of yester year. I will admit that in the past liberals accomplished things which I must salute. Cleaner air, and water. Better working conditions, health insurance, and a host of other things most of us take for granted. Sadly, today's liberals have lost focus, gone horribly off track, and have given the Republicans the greatest Governmental control in more than a century. This is for the reasons mentioned above. Today's liberalism isn't issue oriented. It's sublimated pre-pubescent rage masquerading as a humanitarian cause. That it's a complete fraud, farce and hoax is obvious in that the left no longer champions human rights but instead rails against the evil Republicans for daring to fight for the things they once cherished.
