Things Right-Wingers (Inexplicably) Hate
There are many things that the modern Right-Wing appears to hate. In fact, aside from Mom, apple pie, and jingoistic Americana, we should all best consider ourselves ‘on notice’. (Although you uppity women, gays without the decency to stay in the closet, and various ‘others’ had best be extra careful.)
But there are some things that have somehow gained traction in the right-wing world; things that are universally held in disdain among those who are “right-thinking”. I can’t even attempt to explain why these things aggrieve them so, all I can do is document it:
- The never-gets-old nonsense over Obama’s use of a teleprompter. (Debunked.)
- The endless outrage over Obama’s return of a Winston Churchill bust that the UK had loaned to the Bush administration. (Debunked.)
- The sheer hatred of the Chevy Volt, and anyone who might drive one. (Debunked — by Fox News, no less.)
- The indignation over Michelle Obama’s effort to encourage kids to eat better and excercise. (Just plain stupid.)
I’m afraid I can’t explain this level of psychopathy in a group, but I can assure you I’m trying my best. Then again, I’m sure there are researchers in logic, sociology, political science, and many, many more disciplines investigating and attempting to make sense out of this period in American politics. Good luck with that.
