Think, for example, of their attitude toward the redefinition of marriage, or envy of the rich, or global warming.
Because they consult only their feelings, and their feelings are imbued with a kind of bogus omnipotence via an absence of higher reflection, mere sentiment is transformed into a categorical imperative. Then, the person who denies the imperative -- that would be us -- is rendered evil.
Yes, it is evil to transgress genuine moral imperatives. The left just substitutes the real ones with their feelings. -"Gagdad Bob"
Seattleites celebrate Gay Pride Week by proudly beating up a Christian: A protester holding a sign reading “Repent or Else” was attacked by a group of people following a loud argument during Pridefest Sunday, according to the Seattle Police Department... After a group of women try unsuccessfully to steal the protester’s sign, a group of men grab onto it and pull him to the ground while the crowd applauds. That’s when the video shows the 36-year-old run back toward the fight and punch the sign-holder in the back of the head multiple times.
The left derives its sense of moral authority from the supposition that its intentions are altruistic and its opponents' are selfish. That sense of moral superiority makes it easy to justify immoral behavior, like slandering critics of President Obama as racist--or using the power of the Internal Revenue Service to suppress them. -James Taranto

His dad threatened to cut him off financially once he mustered the courage to tell his parents he had broken from his Democratic roots to become head of the Baylor University GOP in 1983 — and a year later, chairman of the College Republicans of Texas. “My dad made a comment about, well, the Republican Party’s for rich people, so maybe you should get your rich friends to pay your tuition,” Mr. Burrows recalled, “and I was, like, uh oh, what have I done?”... “My mom patted me, and she goes, ‘Well that’s good for you but let’s just keep this a secret in the family,’ ” he said. “I never understood how they lumped in my political views with taking drugs, having illicit sex and cheating on exams, but it somehow carried with it the same ‘immoral’ baggage.”

The Family Research Council, a pro-Christian nonprofit, was named a hate group in 2010 by the Southern Poverty Law Center, along with such groups at the Ku Klux Klan, for its “anti-gay” positions... The suspect “made statements regarding their policies, and then opened fire with a gun striking a security guard,” a source told Fox News. WJLA-TV7 reported the suspect was also shot. Authorities were treating the attack as a case of domestic terrorism.

First Boston. Then Chicago. The next city to tell Chick-fil-A to keep out? San Francisco. Edwin M. Lee, mayor of the progressive city, tweeted Thursday night: "Very disappointed #ChickFilA doesn't share San Francisco's values & strong commitment to equality for everyone." He also added a warning to his subsequent tweet: "Closest #ChickFilA to San Francisco is 40 miles away & I strongly recommend that they not try to come any closer."
‘F**k! The Maine same-sex-marriage initiative passed!” This is what someone who does not know me and happened to be passing my university office the day after the fall elections allegedly heard me say on the telephone. He filed a complaint with my employer’s Equal Opportunity Office. On November 19, 2012, I was forced to meet with the executive director of the EOO, and with the chair of my department, to have a “conversation” about the complaint. The director threatened to investigate on her own if I did not show up.

One day climate change skeptics will be seen in the same negative light as racists, at least so says former Vice President Al Gore.
Why do Republicans think this president is unpresidential and should dare to request this kind of thing? It strikes me that it could be the economic times, it could be that he won so big in 2008 or it could be, let's face it, the color of his skin. -MSNBC contributor Richard Wolffe
...it is of great psychological importance to American left-liberals to believe that their opponents are racist and they themselves are not. Their self-image as a moral elite revolves around the imputation of invidious racial attitudes to others.

Well, the last time I had to confront something like this was when I voted for the civil rights bill and my opponent voted against it. At that time, we had a lot of Ku Klux Klan folks and white supremacists and folks in white sheets and other things running around causing trouble.
One thing that he [Breitbart] and Bill [Buckley] shared was this basic contempt for the premise that the mainstream liberal elite institutions in the United States are in a position to judge and adjudicate the worth of conservatives. That they are in a position to judge our souls. That if we disagree with liberals, that proves that we are somehow wanting or lacking in compassion; lacking in humanity.

Yup, and the fact that they chose to call themselves “teabaggers,” which is slang for a certain act involving balls. It sort of says a lot. I would say a mouthful.
