Breitbart: Liberals Bully Conservatives To Death, Because, Dan Savage

Post image for Breitbart: Liberals Bully Conservatives To Death, Because, Dan Savage

Ben Shapiro, the exceptionally young editor-at-large of Breitbart.com, says President Obama is a liar and a bully, liberals bully conservatives to “death” — and offers Dan Savage as proof.

“Huh?,” you say?

Exactly.

Shapiro’s radical nonsensical rant, published yesterday at Breitbart, is an introduction to his new whack-a-doodle book, Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans.

In Shapiro-speak, this is supposed to make sense:

Actually, the American left has become the greatest purveyor of bullying during the last half-century. That’s the dirty little secret: buried beneath all of the left’s supposed hatred for bullying is a passionate love for bullying—the use of power to force those who disagree to shut up, back down, or face crushing consequences up to and including loss of reputation, career destruction, and even death.

No mention of whom the left bullied to “death,” mind you, but hey, Andrew Breitbart is dead, so, there’s that?

Shapiro, supposedly some wunderkind intelligent superhero, includes this passage, because he’s such an amazing writer:

Andrew hated the bullies of the left. “These liberals are bullies,” he said once.

Wow. The nuance, the eloquence, the depth takes one’s breath away.

“Leftist bullying reaches new heights every day,” Shapiro writes, without delivering one iota of proof. But in the next breath he is forced to go back almost two years (so much for “every day”) to offer this:

Just take a look at the White House anti-bullying program. In March 2011, President Obama led a White House conference on the supposed scourge of bullying plaguing America. There hadn’t been an uptick in childhood bullying by any available measure; in fact, bullying was down across the board. But President Obama spoke up loud and strong against bullying. “Bullying isn’t a problem that makes headlines every day,” he boomed. “But every day it touches the lives of young people all across this country.” He launched a website under the auspices of the Department of Health and Human Services to combat bullying. And, of course, he joined forces with the It Gets Better Project.

Any American with any semblance of empathy remembers the fall of 2010, especially September 2010 — when at least 11 teens committed suicide after suffering years of anti-gay bullying. But Shapiro would have President Obama ignore children who were literally being bullied to death, and yet claim — without any proof whatsoever — the American left bullies conservatives to “death.”

But Obama wasn’t really against bullying, as I explain in Bullies. When the DHS wasn’t busy running StopBullying.gov, they were busy bullying religious employers into violating their consciences by forcing them to cover contraception for employees. And who headed up the It Gets Better Project? Dan Savage, the thug who screamed at Christian teenagers who had the temerity to walk out on one of his anti-Biblical screeds.

Get it? Obama is a bully because he picked Dan Savage who’s a bully and anti-Christian, so Obama is anti-Christian. He’s probably secretly a Muslim, too!

Obama isn’t against bullying. Neither is the left more broadly. After all, when someone stands up to a bully – say, Israel standing up to Islamic terrorists, or even George Zimmerman standing up to a young bully pounding his head into the pavement – the left goes berserk.

Get it? Skittles overpowers guns every day of the week. And the left is totally anti-Israel, so Obama is the Anti-Israel in Chief!

The left’s goal is to shut down the political debate by decrying their opponents as victimizers. They label their opponents racist, sexist, bigoted, homophobic, benighted, backwards bitter clingers. They liken them to Nazis, KKK members, terrorists. Then they cast them out like lepers from the political debate. Because who would bother debating a Nazi, or a KKK member, or a terrorist?

Remember all those liberals who compare conservatives to Hitler? Yeah, exactly. But remember all those conservatives, like, say, Bryan Fischer, who claim gays are Nazis? I do.

Conservatives — the party of “personal responsibility,” mind you — aren’t actually “racist, sexist, bigoted, homophobic, benighted, backwards bitter clingers,” their repeated rage, anti-women, anti-gay, racist, sexist, bigoted, homophobic comments and actions have not made most Americans think that — oh no, it’s the evil left that has magically persuaded most of America to just somehow think that.

Magic!

The left won this election because they bullied. And the right lost because they did not fight back. Now the left has trained its guns once again on the Tea Party. We’re terrorists. We’re hostage takers. We’re racists and bigots and homophobes. Why? Because we have the temerity to want government to live within its means.

The party of personal responsibility takes no responsibility for its racism, bigotry, homophobia, and terroristic tactics, oh no. It’s just the all-powerful left that has magically created this illusion!

And at an embarrassing eight percent of America, the Tea Party, because of its racism, hostage-taking, bigotry, homophobia, lunacy, and poor spelling, is about to disappear.

I’ve not read Ben Shapiro’s book, nor do I plan to. His Breitbart piece introducing it is sufficient to deduce it’s probably a piece of sheer and utter lunacy, just like much of what you’d read at Breitbart, if you actually could stomach it.

I had fun writing up a review of Mr. Shapiro's new book for Amazon:

Most Ironic Book Title of the Year
File this book under "trash" because that's what its filled with — garbage propoganda designed to appeal to low information readers. After reading this book you will understand why Shapiro washed out of law practice after a few months and had to take up with the barking-mad prevaricaters of Breitbart. Mr. Shapiro should have stuck with playing the violin where he could at least hit the right note; here he swings wildly for the fringy, paranoid fences and succeeds.

You will definitely enjoy this book if you fancy yourself a "victim" and watch Fox News. This book will coddle you with faux outrage, specious arguements and false equivalencies until your right-wing panties are so thoroughly tied in a bunch you'll lose all circulation to your private parts.

A typical piece of paranoid Brietbartian victimology, this book explores the delusional outer edges of what passes for wing-nut punditry. Like Mitt Romneys presidential campaign, this piece of agitoprop is so confidently out of touch that only those of limited intelligence will fall under its spell.

In this book up is down, down is up, and the dominant Christian culture is a pathetic whimpering victim of all them gay-folk, negroes and Jews. But if your reality is fact rather than fear-based your best bet is to toss this sanctimonious screed into the trash where it belongs.

Mr. Shapiro is a privileged orthodox Jew who has attended some of the best schools in the country. The fact he quickly "washed out" at a law firm speaks volumes about this man. All his supposed education for naught in the legal world, so this obviously bitter little troll now turns his contempt upon those in our society who have the least power and voice. For him to whip up right-wing reactionaries and spoon feed them with the motivation and reasoning they need to continue bullying and oppressing minority groups is beneath contempt. I suppose selling books to paranoid White Christian bigots is a profitable niche, but Mr. Shapiro may one day find out, like his forefathers in Germany, that these people are not his best friend. They would gladly dispatch of people like Mr. Shapiro in a boxcar.

You unmasked a fraud! Shapiro is another conservative neo-con Jew quite prepared to exact on others fascist sentiments. He like Geller and Rubin are Zionist mouthpieces.

Sheer, utter lunacy — you put it perfectly. These are people like the Whitewater Bunch, sniffing after Hillary for real estate developments in the state that would soon see an evangelical hick minister-manque take over as Governor. The far right will always dream up these fantasies both as distractions and as stimulation of the base. Unfortunately, the base is turning out to be the ruination of us all.

It is precisely because bullying is an intractable problem that schools and parents need to get more realistic about it. It’s not going away, so deal with it firmly so it can at least be kept under control. Thus, being a parent I've learned to be vigilant and more particular on the safety of my teens especially when it comes with bullying cases. Then I found this site that provides a protection for children from a safety mobile protection that can access family, friends and 911 in times of emergency. I just downloaded their application on their iPhone. Here’s where you can find it: http://safetrec.com/
