Why Liberals are Angry: Fifteen Quotes

“Resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die.”
–Malachy McCourt


The “angry white male” is old and busted news. New and hot is the “angry liberal”.

Why are liberals angry? 15 quotes that might shed some light on the phenomenon of The Angry Liberal.

“We have been too nice. We have been too polite.”
–Ann Lewis, veteran strategist with the Democratic National Committee, where the official party weblog is called “Kicking Ass.”

“He who angers you conquers you.”
–Elizabeth Kenny

Quotes: DBKP Library of Quotes

Q: Anybody else see the outrage on the part of liberals at ABC because they had the ‘audacity’ to ask the Holy Messiah Obama slightly tougher questions than say ‘do you wear boxers or briefs’? Imagine for a second that John McCain had had a fundraiser for his campaign years ago with Timothy McVeigh. How is it unfair to ask Obama about his personal relationship with a DOMESTIC TERRORIST? Why are liberals angry over this?

A: People who are not secure in their positions do not like to be questioned. Those who are secure, encourage questioning because it gives them the opportunity to convince others.

“Liberals enjoy claiming that they are intellectuals, thrilled to engage in a battle of wits. This, they believe, distinguishes them from conservatives, who are religious fanatics who react with impotent rage to opposing ideas.”
–Ann Coulter

“Get mad, then get over it.”
–Colin Powell

“”My contribution to the civility of the dialogue has been to get down and say, ‘You’re lying, and we’re going to call you on it.’ “
–Al Franken, MN senate candidate and talk radio host

“[T]he decision in the Florida election case may be ranked as the single most corrupt decision in Supreme Court history, because it is the only one that I know of where the majority justices decided as they did because of the personal identity and political affiliation of the litigants. This was cheating, and a violation of the judicial oath.”
–Alan Dershowitz, Harvard law professor

“I was very angry. I was angry for a period of two days.”
–Keith Olbermann, explaining to Bill Moyers his reaction upon reading in August of 2006 about Don Rumsfeld talking to the veterans and talking about how “every– everyone who was in opposition to the Iraq War policy, the so-called war on terror, even to some degree the Bush administration, was the equivalent in his mind to the Nazi appeasers of the 1930s.”

“Republicans had better worry. Angry people are motivated to get out to vote. If they can channel that anger into something constructive, they can literally upset the presidency.”
–Paul Weyrich, veteran conservative organizer

“I think a lot of people felt the media was giving a pass to Bush.”
–“Bill Scher, a 31-year old publicist who runs

“Liberals believe that men–left to their own devices–are not to be trusted. They also believe in the goodness of government; a government composed of men. This paradox may help explain why many liberals are angry much of the time.”
–RE Bierce

“Sure, liberals still seethe from a doubtful election, an illegal war and political prosecutions. But there’s a genuine anger out there engendered by something rooted far deeper in the past: a quarter-century of callous right-wing tactics. Its purveyors now carping about liberal anger have no one to blame but themselves.”
–P.M. Carpenter, History News Network

“I thought liberalism was supposed to be all about tolerance and diversity and stuff. I guess that applies only to skin, but not to thought or ideas.”
–Fred Dooley, Real Debate Wisconsin

“Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight.”
–Phyllis Diller

Okay, a confession: the last quote could apply to liberals or conservatives.

Louis Farrakhan: Twenty Controversial Quotes

Louis Farrakhan insists he’s misunderstood and his quotes are “taken out of context”.

We assembled a body of Louis Farrakhan quotes from throughout his public speaking.

The reader can then decide better for themselves about Farrakhan’s intent.

From Wikipedia:

Louis Farrakhan (born Louis Eugene Walcott, May 11, 1933), is the acting head of the Nation of Islam (NOI). Perhaps the most provocative aspect of Farrakhan’s political philosophy are comments he has made that have widely been seen as antisemitic.

Twenty controversial and anti-semitic quotes from the leader of the Nation of Islam.

“They call them terrorists, I call them freedom fighters.”

— Louis Farrakhan, on Hezbollah, at District Council 33 Union Hall, Philadelphia, April 22, 1996

“The Jews have been so bad at politics they lost half their population in the Holocaust. They thought they could trust in Hitler, and they helped him get the Third Reich on the road.”

–Saviours’ Day speech, Chicago, February 1998

“White people are potential humans – they haven’t evolved yet.”
–Philadelphia Inquirer, March 2000

“Now that nation called Israel, never has had any peace in forty years and she will never have any peace because there can never be any peace structured on injustice, thievery, lying and deceit and using the name of God to shield your dirty religion under His holy and righteous name.”
— Louis Farrakhan, 1984

“Many of the Jews who owned the homes, the apartments in the black community, we considered them bloodsuckers because they took from our community and built their community but didn’t offer anything back to our community.”

“The same year they set up the IRS, they set up the FBI. And the same year they set up the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith… It could be a coincidence… [I want] to see black intellectuals free… I want to see them not controlled by members of the Jewish community.”

“…America desires a moderate Islam; an Islam that America can control; an Islam that America can give direction to and give orders to its leaders. So, this war is against the Islam that the West does not control.”

“The Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s a good name. Hitler was a very great man.”

“It appears that there is a genocidal plan against Black people.”

“Dewey, Kant and Hegel, and the rabbis that wrote the Talmud, make blacks inferior.”

“Murder and lying comes easy for white people.”

“I believe that for the small numbers of Jewish people in the United States, they exercise a tremendous amount of influence on the affairs of government …Yes, they exercise extraordinary control, and black people will never be free in this country until they are free of that kind of control … “
–Meet The Press interview, April 1997

“Qaddafi is hated because he is the leader of a small country that is rich, but he uses his money to finance liberation struggles.”

“The white man is our mortal enemy, and we cannot accept him. I will fight to see that vicious beast go down into the late of fire prepared for him from the beginning, that he never rise again to give any innocent black man, woman or child the hell that he has delighted in pouring on us for 400 years.”
— Louis Farrakhan, City College audience in New York

“I recognized that the black man will never be free until we address the relationship between blacks and Jews.”

“America will always side with those whom she can direct, give orders to and have those orders obeyed.”

“Countless times over the years I have explained that I never referred to Judaism as a dirty religion, but, clearly referred to the machinations of those who hide behind the shield of Judaism while using unjust political means to achieve their objectives.”

This was distilled in the New York tabloids and other media saying, “Farrakhan calls Judaism a gutter religion.” As a Muslim, I revere Abraham, Moses, and all the Prophets who Allah (God) sent to the children of Israel. I believe in the scriptures brought by these Prophets and the Laws of Allah (God) as expressed in the Torah. I would never refer to the Revealed Word of Allah (God) — the basis of Jewish Faith — as “dirty” or “gutter.”

–Letter to the Wall Street Journal June 18, 1997

“These false Jews promote the filth of Hollywood. It’s the wicked Jews, the false Jews that are promoting lesbianism, homosexuality, [and] Zionists have manipulated Bush and the American government [on the war in Iraq]”
–February 2006 NOI event

“History is not what you thought. It is what you can remember. All other history defeats itself.”

The reader can decide.

Is it possible that these quotes were “taken out of context?”

William F. Buckley: 22 Moments from A Fully-Lived Life

November 24, 1925 – February 27, 2008

Quotes, Tributes and Anecdotes
The good folks over at Right Pundits posted this story in the ‘Guest Blogger’ department. You might want to check out the following RP offerings to score conservative points in your next argument with a liberal.

* The Terrorist Surveillance Program
* Barack Obama National Defense Policy
* Is McCain Running Scared?

Philosophically on most issues, Right Pundits is almost a twin to DBKP. Readers should enjoy their unabashedly lusty brand of conservative posts.

In early 1977, Jimmy Carter was just settling into the White House and the conservative movement was preparing intellectually for it’s moment in the sun that would come in 1980.

That occurred when Ronald Reagan was elected to the U.S. presidency and Reagan read William F. Buckley.

It’s been years since a young then-liberal visited the local library every fortnight to read the latest copy of National Review to learn of the latest goings-on in the then-percolating world of conservatism.

National Review was a window into Buckley’s world. It was a world of tight grammar, proper usage of English and the occasional Latin phrase which sent the reader (this one, at any rate) scurrying for a reference.

Earlier we presented “William F. Buckley: Ten Quotes to Remember Him By“.

Now, a collection: a WFB hodge-podge of quotes, exchanges and pithy excerpts from writings.

In short, some moments from the life of William F. Buckley.

“Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.”
–on WFB’s favorite target

William F. Buckley once sent fellow author Norman Mailer a copy of his latest book. Mailer, disappointed to find that Buckley had apparently neglected to inscribe the book, promptly flipped through the index to see whether he had been mentioned. There, beside his name, Mailer found Buckley’s ‘inscription’ – a handwritten “Hi!”

“When I began this, I said it would be a miracle if I won. After listening to my opponents, I think it would be a miracle if I lost.”
–On the 1965 NYC mayor’s race; Buckley was a candidate.

“On the witness stand I argued that the word “jig” could be used other than as animadversion. The feverish lawyer grabbed a book from his table and slammed it down on the arm of my chair.

“Have you ever heard of a dictionary?” he asked scornfully, as if he had put the smoking gun in my lap.

I examined the American Heritage College Dictionary and said yes, I was familiar with it.

“In fact,” I was able to say, opening the book, “I wrote the introduction to this edition.”

That was the high moment of my forensic life.”
–WFB, National Review May 19, 2006

“I would like to electrocute everyone who uses the word “fair” in connection with income tax policies.”

“I get satisfaction of three kinds. One is creating something, one is being paid for it and one is the feeling that I haven’t just been sitting on my ass all afternoon.”

–on his manic work schedule

“[S]o unbelievably horrible, so appallingly unmusical, so dogmatically insensitive to the magic of the art, that they qualify as crowned heads of antimusic.”

–WFB on the Beatles

Conservative political pundit William F. Buckley, Jr. was once asked to appear on “Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In.” Buckley, who had politely declined, later agreed to make a cameo appearance – after receiving the following comic telegram:

“Would you appear on the show if we flew you in on a plane with two right wings?”

“I won’t insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said.”

“Back in the thirties we were told we must collectivize the nation because the people were so poor. Now we are told we must collectivize the nation because the people are so rich.”

–on the philosophical flexibility of socialists

“Of course, he will always tend to reach first for an anecdote. But then, so does the New Testament.”
–WFB on Ronald Reagan’s intellect

“Cancel Your Own Goddam Subscription.”
–WFB to irate reader who wrote to “cancel my subscription to National Review

In 1965, William F. Buckley ran for the office of mayor of New York City. Given the odds of his clinching a victory, Buckley’s campaign was ridiculed by many political pundits, chief among them William F. Buckley.

One day a reporter asked the candidate to name the first thing he would do in the event of a victory. Buckley’s reply? “Demand a recount!”

“I profoundly believe it takes a lot of practice to become a moral slob.”

Gore Vidal to Buckley: “As far as I am concerned, the only crypto Nazi I can think of is yourself.”

Buckley: “Now listen, you queer. Stop calling me a crypto Nazi, or I’ll sock you in your goddamn face and you’ll stay plastered.”

–WFB to Gore Vidal in 1968.

I leave it at this, that it is outrageous to live in a society whose laws tolerate sending young people to life in prison because they grew, or distributed, a dozen ounces of marijuana. I would hope that the good offices of your vital profession would mobilize at least to protest such excesses of wartime zeal, the legal equivalent of a My Lai massacre. And perhaps proceed to recommend the legalization of the sale of most drugs, except to minors.”
–From July 1, 1996 issue of National Review
For an interesting collection of WFB thoughts on marijuana and the Drug War, check out”William F Buckley, RIP“.

– – – – – – – – – – –

On hearing of Buckley’s demise, there were no end to eulogies and tributes. Here are what several people have said or written about WFB, either when he was living or later.

President Ronald Reagan about WFB:

[T]he most influential journalist and intellectual of our era.

“It [The National Review] is to the West Wing of the White House what People magazine is to your dentist’s office.”

William Kristol, editor of the conservative Weekly Standard in 1999 on WFB:

“He legitimized conservatism as an intellectual movement and therefore as a political movement. . . . For people of my generation, Bill Buckley was pretty much the first intelligent, witty, well-educated conservative one saw on television. “

From left writerl/blogger Rick Perlstein:

““He did the honor of respecting his ideological adversaries, without covering up the adversarial nature of the relationship in false bonhommie. A remarkable quality, all too rare in an era of the false fetishization of “post-partisanship” and Broderism and go-along-to-get-along. He was friends with those he fought. He fought with friends. These are the highest civic ideals to which an American patriot can aspire…”

Bart Barnes, in the MSM Washington Post:

“The intellectual founder of the modern conservative movement, who helped define the movement’s doctrines of anti-communism, military strength, social order and a capitalist economy”

Katharine Mieszkowski in Salon:

“Buckley’s biggest achievement was revitalizing conservatism at a time when it had been marginalized in the United States for decades, since conservatives had opposed Roosevelt’s New Deal and advocated isolationism before the U.S. entry into World War II. Buckley was the intellectual force behind failed U.S. presidential candidate Barry Goldwater in 1964, and later the rise of President Ronald Reagan. His work incorporated the ideas of libertarian Max Eastman, economist Milton Friedman and anti-communist writers like Whittaker Chambers.”

William F. Buckley
Rest in Peace.

Fidel Castro: Fifteen Memorable Quotes

Fidel Castro has resigned.



Let the celebrations in Miami begin!

Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz (born August 13, 1926) was the leader of Cuba from 1959 to 2008. He came to power in an armed revolution that overthrew the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista, and was shortly thereafter sworn in as the Prime Minister of Cuba.

In 1965 he became First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba and led the transformation of Cuba into a one-party socialist republic.

In 1976 he became president of the Council of State as well as of the Council of Ministers. He also held the supreme military rank of Comandante en Jefe (“Commander in Chief”) of the Cuban armed forces.

On July 31, 2006, after undergoing intestinal surgery for diverticulitis, he transferred his responsibilities to the First Vice-President, his younger brother Raúl Castro.

On February 19, 2008, five days before his current mandate expired, he announced he would not seek nor accept a new term as either president or commander-in-chief.

Last year in September, Castro was quoted as saying that he was “determined to outlast President George Bush.

He didn’t achieve that goal, nor many of his others since seizing power in Cuba almost 50 years ago.

We present fifteen Fidel Castro quotes to celebrate his resignation.

A revolution is not a bed of roses. “

— Castro in 1959.

I’m not thinking to cut my beard, because I’m accustomed to my beard and my beard means many things to my country. When we have fulfilled our promise of good government I will cut my beard.”

–Castro in 1959, interview with CBS’s Edward Murrow, 30 days after revolution.

One of the greatest benefits of the revolution is that even our prostitutes are college graduates.

–Castro to director Oliver Stone in 2003 documentary “Comandante.”

Capitalism is using its money; we socialists throw it away.

–Castro in the Observer

I think that a man should not live beyond the age when he begins to deteriorate, when the flame that lighted the brightest moment of his life has weakened.

–Fidel Castro

I feel it is my duty to be more disciplined, do my exercises and take maximum care of myself — even if only to mortify [his opponents] a little longer.

–The Cuban leader explaining his motives for keeping in shape.

I would not vote for the mayor. It’s not just because he didn’t invite me to dinner, but because on my way into town from the airport there were such enormous potholes.”

–on NY Mayor Rudy Guiliani

The universities are available only to those who share my revolutionary beliefs.

A revolution is a struggle to the death between the future and the past.

I am not a communist and neither is the revolutionary movement.

They talk about the failure of socialism but where is the success of capitalism in Africa, Asia and Latin America?

–Fidel Castro

I am Fidel Castro and we have come to liberate Cuba.

–Fidel Castro

I find capitalism repugnant. It is filthy, it is gross, it is alienating… because it causes war, hypocrisy and competition.

–Fidel Castro

I was a man who was lucky enough to have discovered a political theory, a man who was caught up in the whirlpool of Cuba’s political crisis . . .discovering Marxism . . .was like finding a map in the forest.


I never saw a contradiction between the ideas that sustain me and the ideas of that symbol, of that extraordinary figure (Jesus Christ).

–Castro in 1985.

15 quotes from Fidel Castro, until yesterday, the absolute leader and commander-in-chief of the armed forces of Cuba.

Ayatollah Khomeini: Ten Quotes by the Father of the Islamic Republic of Iran

“An Islamic regime must be serious in every field,”
“There are no jokes in Islam.
There is no humour in Islam.
There is no fun in Islam.”

“Yes, we are reactionaries, and you are enlightened intellectuals: You intellectuals do not want us to go back 1400 years. You, who want freedom, freedom for everything, the freedom of parties, you who want all the freedoms, you intellectuals: freedom that will corrupt our youth, freedom that will pave the way for the oppressor, freedom that will drag our nation to the bottom.”

“A man can have sex with animals such as sheeps, cows, camels and so on. However, he should kill the animal after he has his orgasm. He should not sell the meat to the people in his own village; however, selling the meat to the next door village should be fine.”

“America is the great Satan, the wounded snake.”
“If one commits the act of sodomy with a cow, an ewe, or a camel, their urine and their excrements become impure, and even their milk may no longer be consumed. The animal must then be killed and as quickly as possible and burned.”

“This regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time.”

“If one permits an infidel to continue in his role as a corrupter of the earth, his moral suffering will be all the worse. If one kills the infidel, and this stops him from perpetrating his misdeeds, his death will be a blessing to him.”

“A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual act such as forplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed.”

“We do not worship Iran, we worship Allah. For patriotism is another name for paganism. I say let this land [Iran] burn. I say let this land go up in smoke, provided Islam emerges triumphant in the rest of the world.”

“The author of the Satanic Verses book, which is against Islam, the Prophet and the Koran, and all those involved in its publication who were aware of its content, are sentenced to death. I ask all Moslems to execute them wherever they find them.”

–Ayatollah Ruhollah Musawi Khomeini

Ten quotes by the mentor of present Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad–the man that some Americans want to trust with the safety of America and Israel.
