Fear of tyrannical kindness or why are conservatives so mean?

As we near the end of President Obama’s first term, and to my dismay the beginning of his second term, the ideological divide in this country has never been greater.

The conservative ideals have indeed lost their way. Due to a lack of a cohesive message, combined with the effective demonization by liberals, the conservative philosophy is having some difficulty.

I decided to take my DeLorean and travel back to March of 2009. That was when Andrew Klavan made this video “Why are conservatives so mean?” I find this video as applicable today as when he first published it. As a matter of fact, given the debate over the second amendment and the liberals scoffing at the conservative notion of the people protecting themselves from a tyrannical government, looking at this video at the end of President Obama’s first term, it becomes almost chilling.

  1. MAN, I love Klavan!
    And yes, that is chilling, Bret.

    This video is why one of my favorite nicknames for Obama has been “President Xerxes” for the last couple of years: same ego, same narcissism, same fashion sense, ….
    (…ok, maybe not that last one…)
    But make no mistake: we’ll need to mount a legislative defense similar to the ‘300’, and sustain it.

    Gonna be a long 4 years.

    Greatest part about this video is that the title will lure low information voters (liberals) into clicking PLAY!
