“The methods of the liberals were aptly and graphically hit off by the Trudikov Sedelnikov at a meeting on May 9th in the Pannina Palace. When a liberal is abused, he says “Thank God they didn’t beat me.” When he is beaten, he thanks God they didn’t kill him. When he is killed he will thank God that his immortal soul has been delivered from it’s mortal clay.”

— Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov

 

 Before Ann Coulter there was PJ O’Rourke:

“The principle feature of contemporary American liberalism is sanctimoniousness. By loudly denouncing all bad things – War and hunger and date rape — liberals testify to their own terrific goodness. More important, they promote themselves to membership in a self-selecting elite of those who care deeply about such things. People who care a lot are naturally superior to we who don’t care any more than we have to. By virtue of this superiority the caring have a moral right to lead the nation. It’s kind of a natural aristocracy, and the wonderful thing about this aristocracy is that you don’t have to be brave, smart, strong, or even lucky to join it, you just have to be liberal. Kidnapping the moral high ground also serves to inflate liberal ranks. People who are, in fact, just kindhearted are told that because they care, they must be liberals too.”  

— PJ O’Rourke, from the introduction of “Give War a Chance.”
