Why do conservatives say that liberals hate America?
Where does this claim come from?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
The claim comes from their narrow view of the world. The "you are with us or against us" attitude. They think they are the definition of patriotic American, disagree with them in any way and you become the enemy. They are intolerant of others views and seek to destroy by any means necessary anyone who dares to disagree with them.

Because Liberals hate what America was founded on, they hate the constitution and what it stands for, they blame America for most of the worlds woes.

it is likewise mentioned that as a fashion to hate, one ought to have severe pastime for something else. for this reason, immediately's cutting-edge conservatives' animosity in direction of (perceived) liberalism is an after-consequence of their very own "love" for (the mere phantasm of) "classic" usa. Their expressed excitement from the failure of Chicago's Olympic bid is additionally interpreted no longer merely as a right away jab at Obama (Chicago being his homestead city and all) yet is additionally indicative the starting to be nativism and staunch opposition to multiculturalism in the perimeter arch-conservative faction. convalescing usa's image in a foreign country is obviously the least of the increasingly extra isolationist far superb's priorities.

If you remember, Democrats voted with Republicans for the Iraq Resolution (88 to 12). Democrats supported the war effort until Howard Dean started gaining traction on his anti-war stand. (Sorry Dennis "the Menace" Kucinich). So, most did a 180° and they've been on that band wagon since. They have been invested in defeat. They said that the elections could never take place as scheduled, they did and there have been two others since then. They have played politics with funding the war, this after silly non-binding resolutions. Democratic Senators have called our troops murders of civilians in the night, called them NAZI's, recently they assaulted the commanding General's character because he brought good news from Iraq. The list is longer, but hopefully you get my drift.

Most conservatives have a brain which is less able to deal with change and threat.Therefore, any opposition to their viewpoints causes fear in them. For instance, instead of understanding that some people view the war as a waste of blood and treasure, they are so fearful of the boogeyman terrorists, that they let that fear guide all of their decisions. Anyone who doesn't agree to following their path of fear is labeled unpatriotic.They see dissent as threatening to their core dichotomy of fear. Dissent to their fearful reactions causes them stress. They then deride others if others do not hold the same positions as they do.Their world is narrow, black ,and white. It is an actual brain dysfunction. It is the only explanation I have seen that makes any sense at all.

It is based on the continuous verbal attacks & remarks they are constantly throwing out.
They bash business, freedom, capitalism, the military, the President, want to steal through taxation to give to others, etc, etc, etc.
They do not condemn terrorists or dictators, they visit our enemies, they give speaches to foreign media outlets condemning the United States, etc, etc, etc.
When have you seen a liberal (aka a Democrat) say something positive about the United States? Capitalism? The Founding Fathers? The Constitution? American culture? The military? Soliders or Generals in the field? Talk about U.S. victory?
If you want, I could paint a picture...............

Because they have nothing substantive to support their decision, so they make an argument based on rhetoric.
They start with the supposition that they are completely correct and are patriotic Americans, therefore if you disagree with them you are unpatriotic and hate America.
