I do not dislike Rosie because s/he is gay, fat, or ugly. I do not dislike Barry Hussein Obama because he has a muslim name or because he is a slightly cocoa Alfred E Newman with huge ears. I love how libs MUST assume that the reason for their disapproval is race, sexuality, or religion (etc) - that way they can feel their ideas are ok.
I do not like Rosie because s/he is hyper-divisive, unfunny (ever since I first saw her on Evening at the Improv), and I do not like her political leanings. I wish those in the entertainment world would keep their politics a secret. I am proud that they have the right to say what they want and when they want - and wouldn't have it any other way. But GOD - I cannot stand to watch many of these loons at the theater or on TV now that I know what they actually think and wish for this country. It removes the illusion that entertainment should provide.
Barry on the other hand - I just do not believe in raising taxes in the middle of an economic downturn or just about any socialistic policy - which was his platform.Posted by: BrotherMalcolm November 27, 2008 at 11:14 AM
A reply email received at TooMuchLiberty in response to the above– First, I cannot imagine what in my comment above would have prompted someone to click on my link and email TooMuchLiberty vice simply replying under the articles comments like most do? I am glad they did – but there were many much more hateful comments. Please read below with my snarky retorts following….
Whose brother are you anyway? Alfred E. Newman? Who cares what color you are. Why are you so full of hate? Why are your ideas all right? Who made you the the judge for everyone? You take most of your time to hate rather than working to make this a better and more loving world. How pitiful you are. If people that are not like you bother you, why do you watch them? Maybe you're a liberal at heart and you just can't admit it. The wonderful and brilliant Barack Obama is going to go down in history as one of the great Presidents. You, on the other hand, are just going to go away and no one will ever know who you are or what you stand for. Just that you were a hate monger and a bigot. Maybe the lunatic and moron, Sarah Palin, can guide you to the bridge to nowhere. She certainly knows where it is. Or her husband, the separatist that hates America. Your friend, the liberal and admirer of our new GREAT PRESIDENT, BARACK HUSEIN OBAMA, YEAH!!!!!
I am my brother’s brother. And by brother - I do not just mean my brother
by relation (as I also have a sister – to who I am also a brother). I mean my fellow American’s, service members, friends, all those to whom I share common interests or ties, and I use it as an off-hand reference to the title used for various religious denominations.
Alfred E. Newman – yes. Do you not know who he is? It's no biggie, he may have been more well known in a generation other than yours. Or you may very well know of him and didn't see the correlation - so here you go ------------------->

This is where you lost me.... I tried to make it clear that I DID NOT care about Barry's color nor Rosie's sexuality, penchant for foodstuff's or general unattractiveness. I admire many African-Americans (NFL's Warrick Dunn and Hines Ward come to mind for their charitable works, or Colin Powell despite his recent mindblowing endorsement of Barry). One of my best childhood friends was black and one of my closer navy friends is black. Sorry to refute that one for you. Also, I never once mentioned HATE for anything - merely dislike. Let’s move on.
I am also not repulsed by Ellen Degenerous (sp?). I do not enjoy her humor - but she is not unfunny - like Rosie. Rosie makes her obnoxiousness her primary shtick as of late. Further, I am also a very big fan of my openly gay brother and his partner. Okay - so there's two down for your hate claims.
I also never claimed my ideas are necessarily RIGHT for everyone. They are, however, RIGHT for me. Much to the chagrin of many - I am able to express them - I just cannot force them onto others. The Internet forum provides for and encourages that silly!
I have already dispelled your hate claims - but I will go further as to "who I am to judge".
Judging, and one's judgment, is a fundamental composition of who WE are - One's SELF. I am free to make judgments and you may then, in turn, judge me on based on them. Do you not find the irony in that you have done exactly that? Further, you have done so inaccurately - by evoking the very stereotype that I projected onto liberals as a whole?! I wrote that Liberals tend to assume that those who refute their ideas - must do so solely because they are of some type of "IST" or practice some sort of "ISM". They do this because they (Liberals) can then attack a person, dismiss them as ignorant, and go one to assume their liberal ideas are just.
"Who are you to judge?" - is one of the most overly and misused sayings in current time (IMAO). I will not relinquish my ability to judge others. People are hired (or fired) for their ability to make sound judgments, friends are made (and lost) for the ability to judge what is yummy, funny, sad, entertaining, appropriate/inappropriate, etc. What’s more, people are then judged again based on whether or not they have learned from errs in past judgments..... Hopefully by now you get the idea. Who am I to judge? I am BrotherMalcolm, and when I stop judging I stop being me.
The wonderful and brilliant Barack Obama is going to go down in history as one of the great Presidents. You, on the other hand, are just going to go away and no one will ever know who you are or what you stand for. Just that you were a hate monger and a bigot.
I think you are a bit premature here. He isn’t even inaugurated yet. But with the media absolutely in love with him you never know. Additionally, he accomplished nothing of note during his brief time in politics. Being elected president is his biggest achievement thus far - and that is just sorry. You should not ascend to the highest office in the land based on promises alone - IMAO. If Barrack were not black then he would have had NOTHING that separates him from any other liberal - nothing. Similarly, Mrs. Palin has nothing to separate herself from conservatives other than that she is an new face and an attractive woman (well - there are Coulter and Malkin - but they are not politicians). What she does have is her conservatism (different then being a republican BTW) and the sad fact that there are actually few true conservatives in the republican party.
As for no one knowing what I stand for or who I am - I respectfully disagree. I proudly served in the US Navy for 7 years (there are records of this), I contribute to a few blogs including TooMuchLiberty (practicing our 1st Amendments Rights), I help my local animal shelter, I am an NRA member (protecting our 2nd Amendment Rights), and I serve our Founding Fathers best by NOT voting for liberals (had to jab you on that one - cha cha cha)!
I wish you well regardless of your race, sex, religion or creed, nationality, or politics.
I leave you with this quote often attributed to Winston Churchill - all the while assuming that you are about 25 years old -
"If you're not a liberal when you're 25, you have no heart. If you're not a conservative by the time you're 35, you have no brain."
