Liberal love in Manhattan

Obviously the poor timid person writing these paranoid captions doesn't know New York. LOL! "As they were taught to do"... LOL! As if anyone can tell New Yorkers how to act. As if New Yorkers are anti-capitalist! Or live "lavish lifestyles"! Where do you find these people, Darleen?????
I don't think you have to worry about the poor persecuted Republicans in NYC. We have a Republican mayor we're about to re-elect to a third term. Our state legislature is still controlled by Republicans, though not for much longer. And no one gets beat up for wearing a McCain button. We just speak our mind! We know how badly Republicans have damaged our country, how unsafe they've made us, how they've destroyed our economy, how they've made us despised in the world. And yeah, we care about the rest of the world - because we have everyone living here. Paranoia - like anti intellectual mediocrity - just doesn't go over well here.
Don't be jealous. You can't all be New Yorkers. But if you want to come here and stage some crackpot show - even a McCain parade - you'll fit right on. And the only thing that will get hurt are your tender little feelings. In NYC, the Repubs aren't as thin skinned and self victimizing as I guess you all are out there. You should tell the caption writer of this video to grow a little spine. Sounds like a real wuss.

Damn, I moved out of the UWS a month too soon. Leah pretty much nails the New Yorker ethos, but of course a la-la land softie would head for the fainting couch over a little frank talk.
I didn't hear any of the death threats that are now standard at Palin's hate rallies.
Any thoughts on this, Darleen?:
Notice how the rest of the crowd doesn't even have the stones to confront your racist political ally? That's what Hannah Arendt meant when she talked about the banality of evil.

Not to mention the brave little agitprop filmmaker clearly edited out any positive feedback he might have received. I'm sure he got thumbs up along the way as well. After all you've got ALL points of view living side by side here. But that didn't fit his little self victimizing narrative. Poor persecuted Republican baby!

We just speak our mind!
Singular, huh? That's what I thought.

I don’t think the point was look at the poor persecuted Republicans,
it was a demonstration of the vileness that only illiberal’s seem to have and the way they want to enforce that upon others. Its rather scary and a sign of what the illiberal’s are really all about.
I use illiberal, because “liberal” means tolerance and Democrats are only tolerant, until their not.
So they are illiberal’s.
