Now, please explain this to me.
As you'd expect the anti-liberal memes abound. And I must say that while some are clever, a lot are just vicious:
OK, not totally unexpected, but check out the VERY FIRST meme for "Anti-conservative memes":
I'm not even sure of what the point is. I'm an atheist and I sort of expect people to accept Islam along with every other religion and non-religion. Am I missing something here.......besides logic of course? Or is this a test question? If so, I guess I'm a liberal. And so then what is the conservative stance on this question? 'I believe in a god, but if you are Muslim you have the wrong one.' ?
Still, it's not the specific point or non-point of this specific meme that has me confused, but rather WHY it's on a search for "anti-conservative memes"? And if you browse through the rest, you'll see more anti-liberal memes mixed in.....quite a few actually.
So what gives? Could it be that conservatives control the media? LOL Or are there just SO many more anti-liberal memes that they come up everywhere? It seems conservatives like to portray themselves as victims of liberal bias and that the nastiness they spew is in retaliation for how they've been treated.......but it seems to me it's the other way around. A lot of the anti-conservative memes poke at hypocrisies and double-standards whereas while some anti-liberal memes do the same thing, a lot are just accusations of being stupid and un-American. And sure, there's some derisive anti-conservative stuff out there, but you have to admit a lot of it is more clever put-down than just plain nasty name-calling.
In conclusion, I also want to ask a few very simple questions: when a conservative says "liberal", just what the hell do they mean? Fiscal liberal? Social liberal? Both? If I am fiscally conservative and socially liberal, am I a liberal in a conservative's eyes, or a fellow conservative?
