re: #512 Gus 802

Still suffering from the tragic events that took place in 2000. You know, the one where, they won.

They did the same with Kerry. To hear people talk about him now you’d think he must have murdered their best friend or something.

And why? Why still such an intensity of hatred for a failed POTUS candidate who even his own party was lukewarm about?

My theory is that it’s the culmination of 90’s hate radio and the mainstreaming of right wing eliminationist rhetoric about liberals.

Every enemy is always the worst enemy ever; nothing other than total annihilation can ever be enough. (This is also exactly what Richard Hofstader says in The Paranoid Style in American Politics too— not coincidentally, the Birchers are back now too.)
