Embarrassing Leftist Ad Hominem of the Day: Conservatives are Stormtroopers

October 24, 2009

The most recent group shot of NewsReal's bloggers. The short one that's second from the left in the first row is Kathy "Five Feet of Fury" Shaidle.

From Kathy Shaidle’s post from 10 days ago about Rush Limbaugh, a new commenter just left this so-bad-it’s-good comment:

Quantcast“Limbaugh is raking in the bucks, while his detractors are losing their jobs. That pretty much tells me all I need to know”

Wow, success in the market place makes your position on something correct?

Does that nean that Charlie Sheen’s 10 million-plus viewers every week for “Two And A Half Men” makes his 911 conspiracy theories true?

You are pathetic and weak – bowing down subserviently to a drug addict cult leader who doesn’t give a snot about you.

You have no logic. Must be another one of Rush’s satisfied customers.

Liberals – by definition – are more open minded. Conservatives are rigid stormtroopers waiting for the next order from their leaders.

One knows that meaningful dialogue is impossible when he puts forth his brainless Charlie Sheen/Truther comparison.

Mark is an all but textbook example of a leftist troll. (And don’t you dare call him liberal.) Liberals are indeed open minded. Thus by his own definition Mark is not a liberal. At his very first NewsReal comment what does he choose to do? Not engage in dialogue or try and understand Kathy’s argument — but to ridicule, distort, and sabotage.

It is modern day “conservatives” who are the defenders of the liberal tradition. Not the leftists who have hijacked the term as cover for their own nihilistic schemes.

[Sorry to feed the troll. I really can’t help myself sometimes.]

    Mark Padgett, I find your lack of faith–disturbing.

    Odd- that collective statists would be confused about conservatives being attracted to Limbaugh as a cult leader. The news is that conservatives are lacking in leadership. I thought we were on that subject recently. As for the real cult leader- Bobo Obama- can’t the same be stated? Obama is raking in the bucks from book money and tax rebates from donating Nobel Prize winnings while his detractors are losing their jobs. Or, success in the political arena makes your position on healthcare correct. Charlie Sheen is cute but clueless. Mark Padgett is bowing down to a narcissist who doesn’t give a rat’s ass about him. Logic for many on the left is demonstrated by personal attacks. This storm trooper is waiting for some leadership regarding left or right traditional principals.

    Liberals are extremely open minded if they agree with you. His rant is pathetic and all too familiar.

    “Liberals – by definition – are more open minded. Conservatives are rigid stormtroopers waiting for the next order from their leaders.”

    This reminds me of a conversation I recently had with woman who was repeating to me, “Obama is good.” I was at a loss to know what to say for a moment but then asked her whether than was opinion or fact.

    Without missing a beat, seeming to think about this, without batting an eye, she said, “It’s a fact,” confirming this otherwise bright woman as a hopeless ninny leftie.

    ….as in, Ugh! Liberals (leftists) Good, conservatives Bad. Just foolish.

    When the American Revolution happened, it took years to develop. Its fomenters were true radicals in the context of their time. Their
    “conservatism” was Enlightenment thinking writ large — not just theory, as in Europe, but actually brought to life in a written Declaration, and later, a Constitution that enshrined individual liberty in a permanent, legal way. Conservatives today are also true radicals. They desire to return to those original principles that made America the unique creation it was and can be again. It’s the progressives, the left, the inheritors of the fascist concept of the all-powerful state, who want to return to the days when all individuals were serfs. That trend was transplanted from Europe in the late 19th century, and has been growing ever since — more than a hundred years. It’s taken root, become a sapling, and is now a tree. It’s long past time to cut it down.

    This shows just how dumb the left is. You had to be asked to join the Stormtroopers. You also had to be a member of the Nazi party and have put Aryan blood. Sorry I don’t see that with consveratives. Conservatives are people with like beliefs and a distrust of big government. The left loves big government because it means that they can control the outcome, not individuals. The left hates freedom and loves the nanny state. What they don’t realize is that the Nazi were socalist. They were for eugenics, and the state taking over the rising of the children. All we have to do is look at films from the past about the Hitler Youth and how they were indocturinated. It is going right now with our children right now, and the left doesn’t even see the comparsions. Maybe because the NEA and the College professors don’t won’t teach real and correct history any more. All we have to do is look at what has happen in the past two weeks in teenagers in schools. A 15yr beaten and burned. The five punks who did it laugh about it. Just this week a 15 yr girl is gang raped in Richmond CA and more that 20 people didn’t lift a finger to call the police. This what you get with PC speech which the left loves and pushes. It is just like gun control = murder. The left = rape and murder with their ideas.
