Angry Liberals

So many important stories to cover. So much going on in the world. And The Atlantic goes with a discussion of how the rosary is extremist? I remember how they did good journalism. They weren’t always this unhinged. What happened to these people? Why did liberalism become so filled with hatred and rage? What are they so angry about?

    Also, American liberals can’t meme for shit, that also fills them with hatred and rage.

  2. I read that article earlier today. It would be funny if it were not somewhat scary. The person is profoundly confused. Perhaps I should pray a decade of rosary for them…

    Less liberalism and more the ongoing degradation of media, rather than go throuh any pretense of providing news or information they’re just nakedly supplying the reader with packets of commodified emotion – with fear and moral outrage being the top two.

    1. “supplying the reader with packets of commodified emotion”

      And I gotta say… it was the right that innovated cheap emotional charges over information. That was Rush Limbaugh’s whole shtick, getting listeners hyped up and panting about trivial nonsense and doing everything he could to undermine faith in real journalism…..

      Why wouldn’t the left take on that model?

  4. It seems to me that a lot of Jewish liberals in America have a deep fear of the “Christian Right”. That was my first thought, even without reading the article. For what it’s worth, the author of this piece turns out to work at a Holocaust museum in Toronto… Maybe it’s also clickbait; you have to register to read it.
