Today on The Five, the show started with a discussion of the violence in Lansing, Michigan. Bob Beckel not only justified the violence, saying it was against the Koch Brothers, but he said he wishes there was more:
Greg Gutfeld mentioned how leftists can justify violence. He quoted Dennis Prager who said conservatives think liberals are wrong, while liberals think conservatives are evil.
From Karl Marx to today, the Left has always hated people of the Right, not merely differed or been angry with them. The question is, why?
Here are three possible answers.
First, the Left thinks the Right is evil. Granting the exceptions that all generalizations allow for, conservatives believe that those on the left are wrong, while those on the left believe that those on the right are bad. Examples are innumerable. Howard Dean, the former head of the Democratic party, said, “In contradistinction to the Republicans, Democrats don’t believe kids ought to go to bed hungry at night.” Rep. Alan Grayson (D., Fla.), among many similar comments, said, “I want to say a few words about what it means to be a Democrat. It’s very simple: We have a conscience.”
Has any spokesman of the Republican party ever said anything analogous about Democrats’ not caring about the suffering of children or not having a conscience?
You can read the rest Prager’s thoughts here. They are vastly more logical than Beckel’s.
