The difference between liberals and conservatives - Part Three

Didn't expect this to become an ongoing series but today brings yet another illustration of the difference between the liberal and conservative mind set. This is a video of an ugly confrontation between the pro-reform and anti-reform activists in Ohio. At about 51 seconds in you can see the tea party types "mock and scorn an apparent Parkinsen's victim telling him 'he's in the wrong end of town to ask for handouts,' calling him a communist and throwing money at him to 'pay for his health care.'"

It's short and worth watching the whole thing. Again it's the liberals chanting health care for all and the cons shouting kill the bill with the implied subtext of keep your hands off my money. The best part was actually at the end when they got a person from either side to say something calm and coherent. The anti-reform person looked like a nice lady that I probably wouldn't mind having lunch with but she was so seriously deluded on the facts of the bill. I blame the media for that.

They did nothing but "mock" a socialist thief who wanted to use his illness as a shield against criticism at a public protest.

I'm damn proud to live in Columbus.

As everyone will see from the above 'comment', the teabaggage has one major characteristic that brings them together, and it is unreasoning hatred for others who are not them.

Jesus was a socialist thief, but don't think you can get through to people like this. Their hysterical fear of anyone getting anything for free makes them see people getting something for free when others see only wise money management and basic decency.

It's really too bad there is no justice in the world, unless we make it happen. I would feel privileged if some fine day old Fletch lost all his "hard earned" money and his insurance and was grovelling in the dust from some hideous disease and I got to foreclose on his house and throw his wife, kids and aged mother into the street. Perhaps then he'd know something about justice when I pissed on his dying face and called him a communist thief.

You know, you can't fix stupid, you can't change these people -- you've got to help them die and denying medical care to them is a start.

Tempted to delete the haters but think I'll let Fletch stand as a poster boy for hateful idiots.
