Three things that piss me off. (Can of Worms?)

Jess, Charlie, Liberal Avenger, these statements are not directly attacking you. Please don't get bent out of shape or pissed off by the topic. I'm hoping some to the more aggressive readers on your sites get wind of this and hopefully some sites that are really far to the left. These words are not meant for you, but them. (Unless, of course, you find yourself guilty of some of this. Then I'm asking you as politely as possible to please curb your tone.) If I offend anyone with this I apologize agead of time.

If you've noticed, there aren't too many Liberal, Progressive, Left-wing, Democratic blogs that I comment at. In fact, there's only about three that I frequent in comments; LOSLI, Pusillanimous Wanker II and one I can barely sometimes but is still a good blogger at heart (I just try to steer clear of politics over there...sometimes I can't help it though), The Liberal Avenger. The reason for this is some of the crap I read on the "other side" just pisses me off to no end. For a while now, I've been trying not to blog angry but enough is enough. Fortunately, I've been able to narrow my anguish down to three topics I do my absolute best to avoid at all costs. These three arguments tell me that Republicans or conservatives in general are not welcome:

Bush is Hitler!

Bush is not Hitler. Bush is nothing like Hitler. If you think he is you might want to go visit Auschwitz or one of the other death camps to get a better perspective on what the hell is being implied by that statement. Do you really think Bush is trying to create some Aryan race of super humans through human experiments? Is he trying to exact some sort of sick genocide against all of "them thar dirty A-rabs"? No, he is not.

I will not pretend that I am an expert on all things Nazi. In fact I've got a fairly limited angle on WWII history in general. I highly doubt with all of the elitist powers in the libboshpere that you are either. Please stop trying to make some obscure reference from a Nazi SS general to something Bush said. You probably don't know the real context and are only trying to snag sound bites. It's a sure-fire way to show me that you're not open to anyone else's opinion but your own.

Iraq (or Afghanistan) is just like Vietnam!

More than likely, you were born after the Vietnam conflict had already ended. Some of you that should know better, like John Kerry, continually try to drag it back out. It's like uncle Dick telling you how much better we have it today or how things were back in the day. You don't really care what he has to say but you have to listen because he's earned the right to say something. When they do it you sit there and accept it. When you do it you don't demand the same sort of tolerance. Again, unless you're a historian that's taken trips to Vietnam, done personal interviews with the Vietcong, or poured over historical texts you haven't earned the same lee-way that uncle McCain has, so don't talk about it like you know that Iraq is "just like Vietnam". You don't, so don't fake it.

I hate all Republicans and everything they stand for!

This is actually a Howard Dean quote from the final DNC forum before the Feb. 12 vote for Chairman. Here's the full sentence:
I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for, but I admire their discipline and their organization.
That is just a genuinely bad sentence. The first part of the sentence actually negates the second part. That is, of course, you believe you can admire something you hate. To go back to my first point, would that be like admiring Hitler's work ethic even though you hate him?

This isn't the only phrase of similar architecture. There are several others out there: "How could millions upon millions of Americans be so dumb?", "I don't really hate Bush, I just hate every policy he's tried to enact." or "I'm sorry world, we tried." could replace the phrase above. As far as I'm concerned we are one nation. You don't have to say "under God" if you don't want to. I'm not trying to force you and it pisses me off when you try to force me. I don't like being called dumb. When you hate all Republicans and their policies you are hating me. When you apologize to the world you are saying that our way is wrong and you just got out-voted, or we had the wool pulled over our eyes, or we were fooled by the vast right wing conspiracy.

I am a Republican because I believe in the majority of the important policies drawn up by them. Is it stupid, ignorant or idiotic to have hope in things Democrats do not?

Hey, something I don't really understand: Is Bush and evil mastermind or is he just plain stupid? We all know it can't be both ways. Saying he's a stupid evil mastermind would just sound silly, unless he's an Austin Powers character. Wait, that is silly.

I don't think I'm the only one that feels this way. I'd be willing to bet that several other people out there feel excluded by the three topics mentioned above. Maybe the next time you publish something that falls into one of these categories you'll think twice. Maybe now that you know it actually hurts people when you say these things you'll tone it down a bit. I know I can't tell you to do anything. What I can do is ask, and I'm asking as nicely as I know how.
