Are Liberals Being Psychologically Conditioned to Perpetrate Violence?

  1. AnnCee profile image70
    AnnCeeposted 6 years ago

    It seems to me that attacks on Conservatives or Christians are being applauded on the left.  Would it take much more than a wink or a nod from the "proper authorities" to bring on all out physical violence against deniers, birthers, Republicans?  The Germans before Hitler were just ordinary people like you and me.  And after him they became ordinary people once again.

        And I agree with your opinion, his/her ideas are full of idiocy, and you can't separate the bearer of ideas and the idea itself, so yes he/she is an idiot.

        I also think AnnCee is psychologically conditioned to post such high falutin ideas.

      There are attacks being perpetrated on both sides of the aisle. Though I take it from the way you set up ypur position you stand with the right. I stand with the left. Yes there are attacks being fomented against conservatives but let us not forget the murder of abortion doctors engaged in the practice of their legal occupations, Sarah Palin's call to put targets on the backs of liberals, and those who have taken that as more than an idea and actually acted out on it like skinheads following the call of their gurus. Violence is never the answer, rational and open debate IS. If the left is increasingly attacking the right consider the notion that any group marginalized and ignored long enough will find a way to be heard. Rebember the Students For A Democratic Society, [ SDS, the bomb throwers of the anti-war movement in the seventies?] We want peace so let's blow something up!!!

      You are talking about a small minority of conservative people.   Go read the comments of liberals all over the internet.   Read what they say about the harassment of the Glenn Beck family for example.  Read how Tom Petty has ordered Michelle Bachmann to stop using his song.  Read about union protesters destroying property.  Read the rhetoric on this forum coming from the left.  There's a hell of a lot of hate going on.

          The notable thing about the pro-union protests in WI is the lack of citations issued or arrests made.

          Those statistics are a matter of public record.

          The Wingnuts have tried to portray schoolteachers and janitors as violent thugs and its not in the facts.

          And why do liberal women, who one would assume were feminists, always hate conservative women so much? I thought women in power was the whole point of feminism. I have always wondered about that and have never gotten an answer.

    if you can overpower, intimadate, make a person fear, than you can defeat them.  If you have no real basis to support your ideals, and proven history shows the ideas as false doctrine, then attack and beat down the oposition. Socialists and Communists have done this for years.Kill (mentaly or physicaly) those people who do not think like you,get them out of your way.

    we have a mentaly sick world and Human condition re-manafestering itself now. because verbal attacks are safe on the net. you can bully anyone from behind a key board! That way you never have to face them. A Cowards way I believe.

    Wow personal attacks.   Must have hit a chord.

    Reading this article advocating the tatooing of global warming deniers I am struck by the level of anger.  I'm afraid I see that from the left in so many places and so many contexts.  I think it's a question that bears examination.

    Remember the Canadian psychological experiment where two volunteers were seated in separate rooms, one was to ask questions, the other to answer.  The questioner sat in front of a panel with a dial and a button on it.  The button delivered a shock to the answerer if his response was not fast enough.  The dial controlled the strength of the shock.

    Every single questioner, when reassured by the person conducting the study, ended up delivering lethal dosages of electricity to the answerer even though they could hear the screams.

    Fortunately the person answering the questions wasn't actually being shocked.  He was acting.   

    Every person.  Shocking, eh.

    It only takes the reassurance of a person in authority to tip that balance.  And so if hatred for a group or an idea is stoked enough, really anything could happen.  It has occurred over and over again in history.

    What I am seeing from the left in this country, the intimidation, and yes the violence sincerely does concern me.

    To AnnCee, Can you raise a violent person? Can you condition a person to become violent?  AnnCee, human behavior is complex and social scientists can't ascertain why people behave the way they do. It could be due to social environment, cultural, physical or genetics. In our present time, there is an interdisciplinary approach to understand it. Maybe one day there is an explanation to why people behave the way they do.

    It is wrong or an idiocy to say categorically that a group of people are conditioned to perpetrate violence.

          Oh I know, Tom.  I actually expected to be banned by now for reporting a direct insult against myself.  The left is becoming more fascistic by the day.

          One forum I'm familiar with has made it a bannable offense to insult any left wing (and presumably Muslin) group because doing so insults each individual member of that group who happens to also be a member of the forum.  They won't put the rule in the COC's because it's common sense and everyone should know it.

          This new un-rule presumably doesn't apply to Christians or conservatives since there is a Christian bashing thread going full bore right now.  Complete with name calling.

          I think the logic goes something like: they and their ilk deserve everything they get. 

          Reminds me of the thread here about liberals being conditioned toward violence.

            Pretty, this is one of the most liberal sites on the web for writers and forums, especially the forums. And the Mods are all Liberals that I have run afoul of and across, so point out the Conservative Mod in here.

            Where?

            Show me?

            And you think Berkely California is a Conservative bastion?

            And all humans catagorize and compartmentalize. It is how we as humans operate.

            You are right in that I am like a blind demographer though. I do not catagorize and compartmentalize by race, dress, sex, sexual preference, habits, or any other visible factor, but by words and actions.

            It is cleaner in its results that way.

              No, they are individuals, you can only say most not all.
              It is better to compartmentalize by demographic characteristics, the Census data is like that, but categorizing by certain perceived behavior, NAH, not good. You can have prejudice and bias.

                Happy Fourth Of July, Pretty!

                I hope you have a wonderful weekend this holiday.

                Unfortunately, Pretty, Psychiatrists, Sociologists and Psychologists, along with Detetives, the FBI, CIA and many other analytics professionals and those who profile, would dis-agree, and say that most all humans can indeed be clasified and catagorized, hun.

                Sorry...

                I know it sucks...sad... but we are a very predictable creature in the end. Yes... there is the extreme exception to the rule, and a few in between the rule and the norm in all directions, but they are relatively few compared to the whole of the Human Population.

                I will agree America has quite an eclectic mix, very colorful in some parts. But in the end you strip off the outer shell and get to the Psychoilogical and behaviour aspects of the core of a person, or people, and you would be amazed to see the collections of groups which can be profiled very easily.

                I have supplied many links to Behaviour sites, you will find the same in Pschology, or Sociology on a greater scale, it meshes well with fractals in nature, repeated patterns on all scales, which seem to self-replicate.

                Have a great Fourth pretty.

    Oh, I think you're getting upset about the opinion of one person. I read the article and that man was simply venting frustration, probably not in the smartest or most sensitive way. Are you going to say conservative pundits haven't said similarly harsh, unreasonable, or exaggerated things when venting their frustration at liberals? It's quite normal in political debate for both sides to claim they wish to deny the extension of certain basic human rights to their opponents, but both sides do it frequently and it's commonly meant to be taken humorously as a joke to other people who agree with that person. What I'm saying is, people on either side are making statements like this. It's unfortunate, but this is politics. Not everyone is always nice and sympathetic (especially not men, lol). Deal with it. Liberals have to hear a lot worse talk from people like Ann Coulter and Glenn Beck about what certain neo-cons would do to us if they had absolute control. And if WE complain about THEIR harsh rhetoric and joking hyperbole, we are told something like "stiff upper lip, just deal with it, they have a right to free speech, etc." So I guess that's what I feel I should tell you now.

      I have seen more BS tricks played by the Leant Leftists, to take things said by Rush, Beck, and the others, out of context, in the attempt to scream about hatred from the Right. When they spew it daily, and it is a main staple in their diets and rhetoric. And of which no one has to play editing tricks to fool you into thinking they are hate-filled, Anti-American, Anti-Constitution, Propaganda spouting retards.

        Again, this has been done by the right too, guys like Rush and Beck and the like. I have seen them take a snippet and attribute the most bizarre meanings to it. You must remember that both sides are guilty. What has actually happened is that our collective political thinking has been usurped by the heads of both camps in [I suspect] an effort to keep the debate roiling ensuring that NOTHING gets accomplished. Abraham Lincoln tried to remind the country that "we the people" own the government. A little polite and reasoned conversation and a willingness to compromise just might accomplish miracles though no one believes their voice means anything anyway.

          I agree with you as far as both sides being in it... but I don't see Beck as on either side. So... rush is on the Conservative side to the point that he can be, then his progressive instincts kick in.

    Good old confirmation bias. If you go sniffing around for liberal hate, you will surely find it. If you go sniffing around for conservative hate, you will find that too. It all depends on what your bias is.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias

    "Confirmation bias (also called confirmatory bias or myside bias) is a tendency for people to favor information that confirms their preconceptions or hypotheses regardless of whether the information is true. As a result, people gather evidence and recall information from memory selectively, and interpret it in a biased way. The biases appear in particular for emotionally significant issues and for established beliefs."

    Moreover, conservatives are so sensitive these days that any harsh criticism from a liberal will often be construed as hate speech. Whether or not it actually qualifies as "hate."

      Never said it wasn't. I did say that as a Conservative one should watch out when trying to get assistance against Leant Leftists when complaining about personal attacks.

      Hubs has the right to be as biased as they want, it is their right as a private Co. to be. As long as it isn't to the point of being discriminatory, or openly hostile to those with a Conservative opinion. Just like any Co. in this country.

      But that doesn't mean I cannot point it out to another Conservative, and advise that Conservative to be calm and watch out if they choose that route.

      I will say that if UW is banned it is for something valid most likely and they will show her the post if asked. they have always shown me mine, and even if I didn't agree with them and thought they were nit picking, in the end they had their reasons.

      But I as a Conservatiove have to step a lot lighter than a leftist. Thats a fact. I hope they are finally becoiming more aware that not all the BS is by Conservatives, I would be very proud of hubs for that.

          Why? It is not racism to point out someone is a racist, Chris.

          You do not like Netanyahu because he is a Jew and is in Israel, if that is correct then that is Anti-Semetic.

          I do not like Obama cause he is a racist and hates this nation, that is a good thing in the lefts book.

          What? Should I emrace the racists? I don't think so, Chris, your side might embrace racists and Anti-Semites, but I do not.

          I do not like any racists regardless of their skin tone or ideology. I thought you were a better person than to infer I should condone racism by embracing racists and their ideologies. I hope you would not embrace racists at all, Chris, nor anti-Semitism, anymore.

      I have read his books Chris, I understand quite well that he doesn't like them from his own mouth.

      And Zionist eh?... thank you for proving my point.

      Zionism, the national movement for the return of the Jewish people to their homeland and the resumption of Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel, advocated, from its inception, tangible as well as spiritual aims. Jews of all persuasions, left and right, religious and secular, joined to form the Zionist movement and worked together toward these goals. Disagreements led to rifts, but ultimately, the common goal of a Jewish state in its ancient homeland was attained. The term “Zionism” was coined in 1890 by Nathan Birnbaum.

      As I said, because he is a Jew in Israel.

    This is interesting:

    "Talk show host Glenn Beck will address a Knesset committee during his visit to Israel.

    Beck will discuss how to fight the delegitimization of Israel around the world at a July 11 meeting of the Knesset Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs Committee at the invitation of the committee chairman, Danny Danon of the Likud Party, The Jerusalem Post reported Tuesday.

    The meeting reportedly will focus on the September meeting of the United Nations General Assembly, when the Palestinians say they will ask for recognition of a Palestinian state.

    Beck’s July visit, including his address to the Knesset committee, will be filmed for his online show, which will be used to promote his announced “Restoring Courage” rally to be held in Jerusalem in late August."

        I am pretty sure you are wrong this time. Being semitic Is being Jewish. The anti-semitism that has gone down throughout history and all over the world has been aimed at Jews whether Poles, Sefardic, Eastern European or where ever. If it were just a language Hitler and the others would not have had the need to erradicate the entire race, just outlaw the language. You are not a foolish man and I assume you are quoting some dictionary definition but there is a difference between definition and practice. This is the real world Greg!

          Because we choose to define it as such in our useage, and through the virulant irrational hatred and attempts to destroy the Jews, the word anti-Semetic has become inextractably linked to a perverse or irrational hatred of Jews Only.

          -"Semitic (adj.) 1797, denoting the language group that includes Hebrew, Arabic, Aramaic, Assyrian, etc.; 1826 as “of or pertaining to Semites,” from M.L. Semiticus, from Semita (see Semite). As a noun, as the name of a linguistic family, from 1813. In non-linguistic use, perhaps directly from Ger. semitisch, first used by German historian August Schlözer, 1781. In recent use often with the specific sense "Jewish," but not historically so limited."-

          http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?sea … hmode=none

          Anti-Semitic is Jewish-specific for historic reasons, as revealed by the Etymology Dictionary. In its most literal sense anti-Semitic should relate to all Semitic cultures, but this is not the case. Another great example of how history, politics, etc, shape the English language usage.


          Semetic, refers to a large goups of peoples, whose languages all derive from the same root language. Semite 1847, "Jew, Arab, Assyrian, Aramæan," from Mod.L. Semita, from L.L. Sem "Shem," one of the three sons of Noah (Gen. x:21-30), regarded as the ancestor of the Semites (in the days when anthropology was still bound by the Bible), from Heb. Shem.

          If you read my post, I said Semitism, Semitic, is not just as to the Jews, inferring that Anti-Semitism is a misgnomer.

          Semitism 1851, from Semite + -ism.

          I was very careful not to say, "anti-Semitic", but Semitism.

          anti-Semitism, also antisemitism, 1881, from Ger. Antisemitismus, first used by Wilhelm Marr (1819–1904) German radical, nationalist and race-agitator, who founded the Antisemiten-Liga in 1879; see anti- + Semite. Not etymologically restricted to anti-Jewish theories, actions, or policies, but almost always used in this sense. Those who object to the inaccuracy of the term might try H. Adler's Judaeophobia (1882). Anti-Semitic (also antisemitic) and anti-Semite (also antisemite) also are from 1881, like anti-Semitism they appear first in English in an article in the "Athenaeum" of Sept. 31, in reference to German literature.

          http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=Semitic

          So no I believe I was correct, Richard.

          Hope your having a good day.

          _______________________________________________________________
          _

          And nice try, John. Semitic means a people derived from a certain root language group, and anti-Semitic is exclusively applied to the Jews, and I was very careful to differentiate.

          So try again.. lol

        NEW YORK -- Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday during a meeting in New York that the new GOP majority in the House will "serve as a check" on the Obama administration, a statement unusual for its blunt disagreement with U.S. policy delivered directly to a foreign leader.

        "Eric stressed that the new Republican majority will serve as a check on the Administration and what has been, up until this point, one party rule in Washington," read a statement from Cantor's office on the one-on-one meeting. "He made clear that the Republican majority understands the special relationship between Israel and the United States, and that the security of each nation is reliant upon the other." ....

        ....
        Ron Kampeas from the Jewish Telegraphic Agency news agency found Cantor's comments extremely surprising, writing, "I can't remember an opposition leader telling a foreign leader, in a personal meeting, that he would side, as a policy, with that leader against the president. Certainly, in statements on one specific issue or another -- building in Jerusalem, or somesuch -- lawmakers have taken the sides of other nations. But to have-a-face to face and say, in general, we will take your side against the White House -- that sounds to me extraordinary."
        ............

        Sounds to ME like treason. But what do I know? I'm only a citizen of the country that takes a back seat to another.....errrr, and isn't Cantor a dual citizen?

        Many people in our gvt are. So--how do you know where the loyalties lie?

          You do not understand our Govt at all. Do you?

          Congress is a check and balance against the Executive branch, and the Judicial Branch against those two, and the Executive Branch "President", against the two of them, and the Congress is bi-cameral so that is has an innate check and balance between the two Houses of it's body.

          Fairly simple, Chris...

          Of course the Leant Left and Progressives have spent a century removing those checks and balances so as to gain more power in each of the Branches, and usurp one anothers' control and powers, so I can see why you wouldn't have a clue as to how it actually should work.
