Obama Supporters: Why they hate.

It has long been established that the Democratic party and the Republican party attract different sorts of people. One of the most stunning contrasts can be seen in terms of occupations. Democrats generally attract the majority of those who use primarily words in their occupation, such as journalists or writers. Republicans are more likely to attract those who deal primarily in numbers, like accountants or entrepreneurs. This trend has given rise to the perception that Democrats feel, Republicans think. They in turn represent compassion and logic; two sides of the same human coin. However, this distinction has become more blurred in the past decade. Bush demonstrated, with his management of the budget, that Republicans don’t always think, and the Democratic leadership and Obama campaign have shown us, with their handling of Clinton and her supporters, that Democrats don’t always feel.

One group, however, has moved against the trends – the far left. While more moderate democrats have become more rational, they have retreated ever farther from logic. A candidate named Obama was calculatingly designed to whip them into a frenzy by appealing to their powerful emotional side and promising paradise.

An already unhealthy over-emotional view of the world compounded with the Obama promises of utopia have squeezed their prejudices into extremely tight predictable responses. Any view with which they disagree is “hate” or “racism”, not merely wrong. Anything which does not appear to lead them to the promised land is “evil” and must be despised with whatever vitriol they can muster.

Consider their campaign against Hillary.  Their unbridled hatred of all things Hillary was clearly irrational in the long run.  After all, they’d eventually be trying to appeal to her supporters anyways, and as is such, would be foolish to alienate them.  Yet, that’s what they did.

Consider their unwavering support for Obama, even as he changes his position continuously.  If they supported him because of his original positions, why should they support him after he’s changed all of his positions?  Obama is constantly handing them the “new truth”.  Don’t think ever stop and think, “Hey, what happened to the old truth?”  No, of course not.

Consider the extreme unoriginality of their statements.  Thinking individuals do not need to parrot talking points.  Obama supporters repeat anything the Obama camp says.

It is their unrealistically over-simplistic black and white view of the world which skews their ability to objectively comprehend events, even as they are happening.  This level of sheepish mentality is dangerous but predictable.  It is also self destructive, as the less rational are less likely to utilize long term planning.  And now McCain stands in the way of them and their perceived utopia of hope-change.  They believe that if Obama isn’t elected, that something will have been stolen from them – Obama’s promised paradise.  It is for this reason that they are willing to act in a desperate and depraved manner.  A person with an emergency is never as rational as one without.

This irrational fear of loss of this non-existent paradise has driven them to the brink of madness.  Many donate money to the Obama campaign that they cannot afford.  Many have personally back-stabbed former friends.  Many genuinely believe that those who are different than they are evil.  Many of them even believe anything they read on the dailykos.

The far left used to attack Bush for having a simplistic black and white view of the world. Now they’ve adopted it.  And it is this belief, that they are uniquely good, tolerant, and capable of love, and the fear of loss of those things, that drives them to hate.

    I span the occupational divide you present. And I have a much different take on why the followers of and apologists for Barack/Barry SoetorObamaDunham behave as they do.

    IMO, it’s God. Well, actually, the lack of God; specifically, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, including Jesus the Christ. In other words, Christianity.

    The Demockacrats, liberals and leftists (DLLs) are a very secular gaggle, overall. That’s not to say some Dems don’t believe in God, though I wonder how they can call themselves Dems, given the party’s promotion of abortion, homosexual marriage and some other things.

    Nonetheless, secular humanism and moral relativism, as well as atheism, find home in the Demockacrat Party. Research done in 2007 by the Barna Group indicates that one in five Demockacrats align themselves with with a non-Christian belief. And among the non-Christians within the Dems’ party, 67 percent are atheists and agnostics.

    With the Republicans, there’s more likely to be belief in the Judeo-Christian God. And the Barna research shows that only one in 14 Republicans aligns himself or herself with a non-Christian religion.

    Personally, I cannot find other explanations for the hatred that issues from the hearts of the DLLs other than, perhaps, there is some genetic predisposition to them being DLLs and its baggage includes such fractious, unhappy, belligerent, hostile spirits.

    But even that predisposition has spiritual ramifications.

    And it does seem that they behave as over-the-edge zealots more often than not, ones that brook no discussion and, as you’ve pointed out, see now only black and white–though, not so when it applies to BBSOD and anything he has said and or done.

    All this IMO, mind you.

    I’m both a writer and an entrepreneur. These are only trends I am noting, not concrete laws. And even these trends are starting to blur.

    You explain far left insanity with a lack of faith in God. You stated that that about 1 in 5 dems is non-Christian. So I’m just curious – what about the other 4 dems?

    This is not a criticism or even a critique, I’m just curious. I’m a jew, so I’m somewhat of a spectator to Christian issues.

    I am a Catholic Democrat, yes I believe in God and his son Jesus Christ. I don’t support abortion, its against my religion, I have six children, and now 15 grandchildren. They could throw roe vs wade out as far as I’m concerned. After hearing about Obama’s late term abortion fiasco. I can’t believe anyone would just let a baby die that survived a botched abortion. How does that make you feel? Makes me very angry and sad. Babies are a gift from God, he intrust them to you to bring them up in his love and his teachings.

    I have read your blog and noticed how easy it was for you to generalize millions of people as if they all think and act exactly the same. When people are generalized to that extent, the words you speak can never be true.

    I have spent my life learning to love people or accept their mean spirits – because they really don’t know any better. I would not call all republicans mean spirited – because that too generalizes too many people and would also be an untruth. Have you heard of ‘stereotypes’?

    But, I’ve noticed that the people yelling the loudest and cloaking themselves in religion are sometimes the meanest. (in my opinion) I think it’s time we (Republicans and Democrats) took a look at ourselves and accepted responsibility for our mean spirited behavior and the damage it does to other people. Since we includes everybody, that also means you.

    Obama Supporter who does not hate and is offended by blatant stereotyping.

    You read my blog? That’s how you missed all my disclaimers about generalizations, right? I didn’t put one in this post because I didn’t think it necessary.

    Oh, and what’s with this statement that, “When people are generalized to that extent, the words you speak can never be true.”

    I believe all people require oxygen to survive. Is that a false statement? I believe all people desire happiness, even if they don’t realize it. Yet another false statement?

    P.S. The “s” in “Obama Supporters” is capitalized for a reason. Think about it.

    as a dem i am sickened by the hatred spewing from those obama zealots. as a woman i am sickened by the hatred being spewed at hillary clinton and her supporters. as a human i am nauseated by obama’s position on abortion (and i am pro-choice). as an american i am revolted by the constant hatred being spewed about our beloved country. our country is beautiful and envied far and wide and yet the zealots and their messiah continue to tell us how awful our country is and how ashamed of it we should be and how they can magically fix it all. i would not walk across the street to see this false prophet blabber a speech about hope and change, and if he was over there i would call the police for a loud disturbance by a possible terror organization.

    Obama supporters are some extremely mean and angry people. That’s a generalization, of course, but it’s what I’ve experienced.

    I appreciate everyone’s concern regarding the abortion issue. I hope all of you are adoptive parents or foster parents, as right now, there are over a half a million children living in foster care and waiting to be adopted. That doesn’t include those in which reunification efforts are ongoing. It also doesn’t include the unwanted babies being born every day. There are over a half a million children with names and personalities waiting for families–waiting for people to care about them. If your opposed to abortion, I respect that. However, please do your part in actively participating in the solutions your promote, as if you don’t, you’re only contributing to the problem. I, myself, am an adoptive parent of two sons and while I’m pro-choice, I can absolutely appreciate an alternate position as long as the person is doing their part. It’s easy to have an opinion-it requires zero effort. Walking in the protest or signing the petition isn’t enough. You have to sacrifice your life every day all day when it comes to the life of a child. Adopt the children you advocate to be born. It’s simply the right thing to do. Thank you.

    I support Obama. I am also a Christian, and was raised as such- my father is a minister, and I, myself, am adopted.

    I believe in Obama’s message because I believe we, as a nation, need to make some serious changes- and the other candidate doesn’t have the balls to do it. I don’t believe every Republican is a bad person, but I do believe the current administration has jacked things up beyond all recognition.

    The idea of McCain being in office, and seeing more of what we’ve seen over the past 8 years absolutely nauseates me. I’ll vote for Obama because he sees that as well.

    Of course as a fellow blogger I could go on and on, but I won’t bore you… I just wanted to say that I, for one, will absolutely- and proudly- Barack the vote.

    Erm, Chaze77, you do realize that Obama is a LOT more like Bush than McCain, right? Seriously, you really shouldn’t believe everything Obama has said…….

    To make my point, check this out:

    And don’t let the title scare you, it’s explained in the article.
