Here's Some Good Old Fashion Haughty Liberal Bigotry For Ya

NewsBusters - "Fantasyland author and WNYC NPR radio host Kurt Andersen displayed the condescending kind of liberal haughtiness that helped get Donald Trump elected as he looked down on people of faith, including those brave men and women who helped found America or as Andersen called them a “cult of religious nuts.” 

"On the August 7 edition of PBS’s Charlie Rose show the author who penned The Atlantic article “How America Lost Its Mind” (that trashed Trump, Rush Limbaugh and the conservative movement) told Rose the reasons the country had lost its mind. One of them was religion. When Rose asked Andersen what role religion played in America, the author responded that “America is exceptionally religious, has always been exceptionally religious compared to the rest...” That’s when Rose interrupted Andersen to remind him America was “Founded by people who were seeking religious freedom.” To which Andersen corrected him by insulting people of faith and the Founders: “Well that’s one – that’s a charitable way of putting it. Founded also by a theocratic cult of religious nuts.” 

"Rose let the grotesque insult slide by simply responding: “Okay. Right, right.” Andersen then proceeded to depict America’s “religiosity” as being out of step with the rest of the “developed world” and added “once you are, as a culture, more inclined to believe in magic, in the supernatural’s gonna leach out into, into not believing in climate change.”


And just how, exactly, do these liberal like Mr. Anderson think the USA achieved its greatness? They hate the fact that to answer that question they would have to credit:

Individual freedom - that which the left, through Political Correctness now tries to define for us all.  American Patriotism - that which today liberals see in the same light as Nazi Nationalism of Germany in the 1930's.  Laissez Faire Capitalism - an anathema to leftist thinking, as they will gladly inform your from there iPhones.  Small Federal Government - large Government, their one and only true God. The Pursuit of Wealth - that which brings about natural inequality, but allows hypocritical wealth liberals elites to live in secure apartment buildings and gated communities far from the dark side of their soul killing philosophy.  Christian love for those in need - Mr. Anderson in all his elitism fails to acknowledge that the first and some of the most important charities and hospitals in America today were founded by Churches and Religious Orders. As well, schools of higher learning (Mr. Anderson himself a Harvard Grad) that were founded primarily as schools of Divinity. 

Those "theocratic cult of religious nuts” as Anderson called them lived in times of their own, but helped create the greatest and most prosperous nation in civilized history. But it seem now the new leftist religious order of the 21 Century have the makings of something just as bad as "those religious nuts" first came here to get away from to begin with.........
