By now, you have all noticed that we have a reader/commenter who does not share our liberal views. I’ve visited this person’s journal, and unless “he” has a husband, it is indeed a woman. From the “heart of Dixie.” That’s all the information I could glean from the blog; it has been very sporadically updated since it was started in 2003.
I want to be open-minded and accepting of opposite viewpoints. Really. I know there are women out there who do not believe as I do, and I want to honor the places they come from. If I knew this woman in real life, perhaps we could be friends, or pleasant acquaintances. Because we would never, under any circumstances, discuss politics.
But, seeing as how we DO discuss politics here, and she has taken it upon herself to chide us for our beliefs, and proselytize her own religious right values, I wouldn’t feel too bad about shooting her down.
However, I think her own words do a pretty good job of displaying the merits of her views. So, here they are:
Comment on On Poor Choices And Sarah Palin:
“If it was one of Obama's daughters he would have had her kill it before it was born.”
Comment on a pit bull with lipstick:
“I must be a christian right winged nut. she sounds pretty good to me. Do you reckon she'll have young men sneaked in to her office?”
Comment on I Keep Trying:
“that's funny. I am Republican and I pay attention to the candidates and the issues. I must be strange!”
Comments on Our Worst Nightmare:
#1—“You girls are really ugly, you know that ?”
#2—“Well, I have listened to both candidates and their vice presidental choices and I will be voting for John Mccain and Sandra Palin. I am against gay marriage and abortion. I don't pretend to know everything but I do know what I believe and they are more in line with my beliefs. My first concern is safety for our country because if it is not kept safe nothing else matters. Not global warming (I believe the only one who can destroy this planet is God. He made it. It belongs to him and is in his hands.) The economy won't matter if our buildings are blown up and our people killed. Who was worrying about that when 9/11 happened? Much of what has been said on here has been just ugly, demeaning things that have nothing to do with the issues. Besides, Michelle Obama's butt is too big. See what I mean.”
#3--"OH yes, I like Cindy because she always wears her church going to meeting clothes."
Comments on Wheel of Fortune:
#1—“Do I smell jealousy?”
#2—“What's wrong with breast feeding Trig. She's not using plastic bottles and rubber nipples. She's not using gas or electricity to heat the milk and she's giving him the best food ever made for babies. She's not worried about sagging breasts, she's doing what's best for her baby. Also, better killing Moose than unborn babies. Her daughter could have had an abortion you know and kept it secret. You people have your priorities all wrong. I really feel sorry for you.”
Comment on Give Me a Break:
“… You girls need to read the bible and no I am not a bible thumper I just believe what it says. If you believe in God you should believe what it says.”
I have no doubt that Ms “myrdog” believes every word she has written here with her whole heart and soul. Even as we cling to the beliefs about which we have written.
The thing we need to remember is that the “myrdogs” of the world VOTE. (And this particular one is going to be voting for “John Mccain and Sandra (sic) Palin…”)
The only real weapons we have against people like her are our own precious votes. We need to energize EVERYONE we know that might cancel out the votes of myrdog and the legions like her.
Get out there and VOTE.
It’s our only hope.
