A GOOD example of an Elitist Liberal is John Aravosis, who runs Americablog, an anti-Bush liberal blog. I put two comments on his blog tonight (along with the many dozens of comments from other folks), referring to Cindy Sheehan's lame "protest" inside the Capitol:
1) "The problem with this woman is that she thinks she's the only person whose wishes and beliefs matter and she thinks she's above the law. Actually, she sounds like most of the Elitist Liberals who have hijacked so much of the once-respectable Democrat Party."
2) "Average Joe, you hit the nail on the head. These people are getting desperate because they don't understand why most of the "idiot" Americans disagree with them. So, they're now resorting to disprespecting the institutions of government that they claim to try to be protecting. What will they do when they fail to capture either the Senate or House this November? Stay tuned - chances are, their tactics will just get crazier and crazier."
To which Aravosis responded:
"Cyd, that's priceless, and downright communist of you. "Disrespecting the institutions of government" is now a crime that gets you thrown in jail? Seriously, are you a left-over Soviet, Maoist Chinese dictator-lover, or what? The only reason I'm not banning you is because you're a perfect example of the typical conservative in American today. You hate what the flag stands for, you hate what the Constitution says, and you hate everything our country was founded to be. Maybe we all pitch in and buy you a ticket to go back in time and move in with your buddy Stalin."
Then, in a truly priceless move, he in fact DID ban me from posting to his site (and he said I'm the Communist????). And, what's more - he got it wrong. I never said she should get thrown in jail. I said what she did was elitist; I never said she should have been put in jail over it.
I guess the mighty John Aravosis just can't handle the truth, which is no great revelation.
