Why are conservatives acting like victims and the government is trying to screw them?

And does the whole "name game" really make them feel better? BO, Barry, Hussein, Obamination. I thought liberals were the whiny ones.

Update:

Good point Iceman. Didn't really hear that chorus while he was in office though.

    I don't know you tell me:

    >>A newly unclassified Department of Homeland Security report warns against the possibility of violence by unnamed “right-wing extremists” concerned about illegal immigration, increasing federal power, restrictions on firearms, abortion and the loss of U.S. sovereignty and singles out returning war veterans as particular threats.

    The report, titled “Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment,” dated April 7, states that “threats from white supremacist and violent anti-government groups during 2009 have been largely rhetorical and have not indicated plans to carry out violent acts.”

    However, the document, first reported by talk-radio host and WND columnist Roger Hedgecock, goes on to suggest worsening economic woes, potential new legislative restrictions on firearms and “the return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks.”

    The report from DHS’ Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines right-wing extremism in the U.S. as “divided into those groups, movements and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups) and those that are mainly anti-government, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”

    “[T]he consequences of a prolonged economic downturn – including real estate foreclosures, unemployment and an inability to obtain credit – could create a fertile recruiting environment for right-wing extremists and even result in confrontations between such groups and government authorities similar to those in the past,” the report says.

    It adds that “growth in these groups subsided in reaction to increased government scrutiny as a result of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing and disrupted plots, improvements in the economy and the continued U.S. standing as the pre-eminent world power.”

    “Proposed imposition of firearms restrictions and weapons bans likely would attract new members into the ranks of right-wing extremist groups as well as potentially spur some of them to begin planning and training for violence against the government,” the report continues. “The high volume of purchases and stockpiling of weapons and ammunition by right-wing extremists in anticipation of restrictions and bans in some parts of the country continue to be a primary concern to law enforcement.”<<

    That is the second time today you nimrods have accused conservatives of being "victims" You people are a joke, the democrats would never win an election if they did not spend all their time convincing their constituentsts that they were victims. Liberals created the victimized mentality that has become so pervasive in this country. So call us whatever the hell you want but but do not ever accuse "US" of acting like victims. Nimrod

    All of us are whiny. You are whiny. I am whiny.

    This is what political parties do when they are out of power.

    It does help though to critical think about issues. This way you can see two sides and decide which is better. So it isn't so bad. And whiny people are funny.

    Yeah government sucks right, that is why Governor Succession of Texas is now begging "Barry" to send flu vaccine. You should show a voter ID card before you get anything from the government (ie; Social Security, Medicare, Hurricane Relief, Flu Vaccine). We hate in others what we see in ourselves.

    To answer your question about does the name game make us feel better, let me ask you a question that will answer that for you. Did you feel better when you called George Bush and Dick Cheney foul vulgar names and howled about the economy and how much money there were spending? You can dish it out but you can't take it, I see. Funny how it works out that way, ain't it?
