Hipocrisy on both sides
    #2299382 - 02/04/04 02:45 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I wanted to make a thread listing what you think are the most hypocritical aspects of the left/democratic party and the most hypocritical aspects of the right/republican party.

*Note* Please refrain from simple rants about what you don't like about the particular ideology and please don't make long-winded responses. keep them short like a list.

Also note that in order to do this there will be some broad generalizations and stereotyping, but just try to deal with it. For general purposes, we'll say the Democratic party is usually more economically on the left and more libertarian socially while the republican party is generally more economically to the right and more authoritarian socially (lets use the politcalcompass.org as reference). There are always exceptions to these generalizations, some of which this thread will point out.

I'll start off with some:

The left wants to stop killing guilty convicts but protect the legality of killing innocent potential humans

The right claims to be 'pro-life' yet is in favor capital punishment.

The 'right' is supposed to be about local and state government priority yet are the principal actors behind medical marijuana raids

The 'left' is supposed to be about civil liberties, but doesn't include the second amendment in those 'rights'.

I'm going to have to defend my leftist positions here. Liberals don't like abortion... we just don't like the idea of the government deciding what a woman should do in the most important decisions in her personal life. Not only that, but if you make abortion illegal, you have to remember cases of rapery, especially by family members. These people who feel they need to do this will be forced to street docs and coat hangers. And about the second amendment, I don't give a damn if everyone owns a gun. Bowling for Columbine actually convinced me that guns aren't the problem.

not interested in defenses, just list some hipocracies you see.

and what you outlined was an argument against prohibition in general which the government obviously doesn't believe if you look at policy towards gun ownership, prostitution and drugs. clearly, there is another reason behind the pro-choice movement as well. but please don't derail this thread into pro-life/pro-choice.

I see...so you're not interested in whether or not something is actual hypocrisy--only as long as it gives the outward impression of hypocrisy. Thanks for clearing that up.

The biggest hypocrisy of all lies in the "Christian Right." I have never seen more of a blatant difference between the figure one idealizes and the way one lives. Jesus was a long-haired socialist. The exact opposite of a George W. Bush.

the right parades around in patriotism and then starts something like the patriot act turning us into prisoners within our country.

Okay noone gave hypocrisy from the left so I'll add some.
The left always attacks christians for persecuting people in the past. They have since changed. THe left used to be open about not liking blacks, that has since changed. The liberals slammed Santorum but didnt say a word when representative Jim Moran blamed the jews for the war in Iraq. They are pro-choice, but against capital punishment. Liberals claim to be humanitarians but bitch about how much money it cost to liberate the iraqis. Liberals constantly preach tolerance, yet they are extremely intolerant of conservatives. They claim to support minorities, but by supporting welfare they are preventing the poor from aspiring to greater things since they can get a handout for free. Liberals are socialists, and they are all about the economy, yet socialism has ignominiously failed in the past. Liberals want high taxes, which only hurts the lower class as it prevents upstarts. They call bush a dictator, when he took out a dictator. Im sure the people who were in saddams torture camps, and had to live in constant fear don't consider him that. They constantly preach separation of church and state, seperation of education and religion, however that seems to only apply to christianity, if a kid wants to bring in something related to kwanzaa to school thats for some reason acceptable. another instance was that no one slammed clinton for bombing iraq in 1998. Just thought I would post a few since they were requested.

I also forgot to mention that whenever a leftist does something its okay with them but if a righty does it its not okay. Do you guys remember when Anthony William's staff member said the word niggardly there was an immediate outcry and pushed him to resign?? Lets look at some leftist sayings here:

Senator Byrd-former member of the KKK. Said "Blacks are race mongrels" also said "I will never fight with a negro by my side"
Senator Earnest Hollings- called blacks "darkies"
