trackback

by Greg Gutfield. I URGE you to read the article immediately, and know that I have its entirety on my hard drive, so that when HuffPo gets around to banning Gutfield and removing the post, we can still revel in it.

Some choice nuggets:

Fear of a loss of individual liberty in response to the war on terror.
Fear that the paranoia over terrorism will erode everything this country was founded on.
Fear that liberals haven’t degraded the education system enough so most people still know that Abraham Lincoln and FDR suspended many liberties to deal with similar crises

Fear of all forms of energy except for the ones that don’t work
Fear that people will realize the easiest way to cut back on greenhouse gases is to convert to nuclear energy
Fear that your activism will be exposed as a front for your narcissism
Fear that low taxes actually do create prosperous societies
Fear that people will find out what a hypocrite you are because you call for higher taxes while using tax shelters

Fear of mean people
Fear of judgmental people
Fear of appearing narrow-minded
Fear of intolerance
Fear that with your tirades against SUVs, Wal-Mart, meat, cigarettes, guns, whisky, and organized religion, you are the judgmental, intolerant one. (God, I’ve been saying this for MONTHS now!!!)

Fear of 3d ultrasounds that show fetal development

Fear that the exposure that you’re being for the ‘common man’ is a joke considering you go to the only clubs and bars roped off to keep those people out.

Fear that when they take away your anger there will be nothing left.

Fear of free speech when it mocks your beliefs.
Fear of free speech when it speaks back to you.
Fear of free speech when it comes from Christians.
Fear of free speech when it comes from me.
Fear that your definition of free speech – that only you get to be heard– won’t fly with us Wal-mart shoppers.

Fear of black Republicans
Fear that one day blacks will figure out you’re the racist for always treating them like helpless victims instead of responsible individuals.
Fear of Big Brother
Fear of group think
Fear that your lockstep obedience to progressive boilerplate is a purer example of subservience than anything you’d ever find in “Repuglican” circles

Fear of school vouchers
Fear that school vouchers will enable poor minority children to attend your children’s private schools

Fear of a Marine knocking on your Prius’s window to discuss your bumperstickers. (LOL)
Fear that your own sense of rebellion is a farce and every opinion you have is safe and only voiced among those who agree with you

Fear that you hate the right for the same reason you hate your dad because you know that he is right and that you are a loser and you will always be a loser and that you are sabotaging your life and those of everyone around you because that makes you that angry.

Fear that everyone will notice that other than incessant complaining you haven’t come up with a single solution.

Fear of someone sitting you down and forcing you to deal with the fact that even if global warming was absolutely manmade and as bad as Gore says it is, that the threat of islamic terrorists getting WMDs and using them is far greater and imminent and requires offering at least moderate allegiance to the current president of the United States and to Tony Blair and Sen. Lieberman.

Fear that America really is the freest country in the world

There’s more, so much more. An amazing feat, really. How on EARTH did he manage to get this posted on HuffPo?

And of course, check out the comments.  So MANY ruffled feathers.  I find it almost as funny as the original post.

Thanks for the link Hoody. the comments are hilarious
i actually read all of them searching for a valid rebuttal. Of course none to be found

Yeah, lots of righteous indignation, but not real substantive complaints.

par for the course.

I thought the comments a nice illustration of the points of the article. Hmmm…I wonder if there are enough to go back and categorize them by each fear? It could be quite illustrative.
