Smug liberals – Part 1

Liberals embrace the smug life

Liberals have no shame. A dinner guest in our home stood up at the table, clinked his wine glass and said, “It shows how stupid the American people are, they voted for Bush twice.” He turned to me, smirking, and said, “I know you voted for him.” A biochemist who had been too busy learning liberal doctrine instead of the basic manners of being a guest. We also had dinner with a couple who spent the evening trashing Rudy Giulliani, claiming that the former mayor of New York had nothing to do with turning the city around, even though he took office in a crime-ridden city and stepped down when it was safe. It would have happened anyhow, they said. As we said goodnight in the driveway, one said with a grin, “We like you even if you are Republicans.”

Many liberals don’t seem to realize how nasty and full of hatred they are because their worlds are pure.

He has previously worked for several prominent conservative non-profits as an analyst in health, education, technology and judicial policies, as well as a press secretary in the US Senate. Additionally, Derek helped found the Daily Caller.

Is every liberal an immoral, nasty tempered, habitual liar who accuses people of racism for fun and trashes his own country because he thinks it makes him look sophisticated? Of course, not! On the other hand, is that a fairly accurate description of most liberals in politics? Yes, it is.

Only liberals would be cruel enough to pick on kids running lemonade stands with a permit, children putting on Christmas plays at school and the Boy Scouts.

Whether you’re talking about cop killers, terrorists, radical Islamists or dictators, all you have to do is say, “I hate America,” and liberals start to sympathize with you.

Liberals are actually bothered by people who do love America. On the rare occasion when you do see a liberal waving a flag, look for a camera.

The same people who voted Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama into office think they’re smarter than tradition, the Founding Fathers and God Himself.

Liberals might not want to admit it, but the world would have been a better place if Mary Jo Kopechne had crawled up out of that car instead of Ted Kennedy.

Liberals believe in taking money from people who earn it, handing it out as bribes in order to get more power and then using that power to hurt the people that are giving them money.

The dumbest, most close-minded and mean spirited people in all of politics are inevitably liberals who are convinced they’re brilliant, open-minded and compassionate because they call themselves liberals.

Because liberals are unable to ever admit they’re wrong, they systematically ruin and destroy everything they become involved with and then either point the finger elsewhere or demand even more government involvement to fix the problems they created.

@realDonaldTrump you are a weak, scared, stupid, inept, negligent, vindictive, narcissistic, criminal. I hope you live a long life in prison where you become the most popular boyfriend to … all inmates.

Liberals are trash. They’re corrupt. They’re condescending. They’re bad people

Collectively liberals have never been as nasty as they are today. Lefties firmly believe they are morally and intellectually superior to everyone else.

I’ve known lots of liberals my entire adult life.

Throughout my 11 years at WUWM Milwaukee Public Radio just about every liberal I knew was always kind and respectful to me.

The same was true when I moved on to WTMJ. Nice as could be. Until.

In 1993 I was News Director at WTMJ radio. The station had just hired Charlie Sykes who had been doing a talk show at rival WISN.

I knew Charlie long before then, having covered side by side with him similar stories when he wrote for the Milwaukee Journal.

So I’m sitting in my WTMJ office back in 1993 and in walks Charlie. No one needed to introduce us to one another.

I assumed this was the obligatory customary formal reaching out to inform he was happy to be at WTMJ and that he looked forward to working with me. Well, yes, but there was more.

Charlie came from WISN where he was a guest at the time on Mark Belling’s weekly TV show and Mark’s weekly radio week-in-review discussion. Now here was at at WTMJ.

He told me he would soon be starting his own Sunday morning TV show and he wanted me to be a regular panelist.

Immediately I was excited. But just as immediately after expressing I loved the idea I had to temper my enthusiasm.

My reply to Charlie was something to the effect, “Wait a minute. I get to go on TV and say whatever I want and nothing will happen. There will be no repercussions?”

Charlie assured me I would be fine.

I’m in, I told him.

Lynn Sprangers, Mikel Holt, and I were the original panelists on “Sunday Insight,” that featured a predictable on-air verbal confrontation between yours truly and Holt, who was actually a good friend.

Then I became a regular on Charlie’s weekly radio week in review on Friday mornings from 11:00-12:00 that we did just before going into the TV studio to tape “Sunday Insight.”

Management also allowed me to produce and voice a daily 2-minute radio commentary that aired twice during critical morning drive time.

I also filled in for Charlie as host on his talk show when he was gone. This happened a lot, especially when he was on a book tour. During the Miller Park debate I filled in for Charlie frequently, and became quite popular with those lobbying for either side.

At the same time Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10 was ready to launch its own TV pundit roundtable weekly show called “InterCHANGE.” It needed a conservative panelist. Host Mark Siegrist, who was working with me at WTMJ Radio, invited me to come onboard. They taped very late Friday afternoon, so I didn’t have any conflict with the “Sunday Insight” taping.

Did I mention I was WTMJ News Director at the time?

I was setting the agenda for what the radio news department examined.  I also left the building to cover stories, phoned in stories, and when back in the studio anchored newscasts.

And on the same day I was expressing explicitly my opinions on various issues, leaving no grey area behind.

This was 1993, 1994. Most folks understood, and could comprehend between Kevin Fischer the news reporter/anchor and Kevin Fischer the pundit.  But others objected, and got angry.

They assumed that just because I was now at WTMJ I still had 11 years on my resume at WUWM, so I had to be a flaming leftist, right?

The late Tim Cuprisin, at the time the radio-TV critic for the Milwaukee Journal was incredulous. How could a supposedly objective news reporter who’d won his fair share of awards be allowed to spew his personal feelings and views on the largest radio station in the state? Why, this was outrageous.

My how times have changed in the media.

More and more my conservative beliefs were broadcast to thousands.

One day I was doing what I had since 1978. I was at the Milwaukee County Courthouse, covering the regular monthly meeting of the Milwaukee County Board. During a lull in the proceedings I had left my media desk spot to stroll behind the County Board room and was accosted by a Milwaukee County Supervisor who had never said ‘no’ to my request for an interview or answers to questions. There was always mutual respect. That day in the hallway behind the meeting room I was blasted.

The always sweet, well-mannered, Milwaukee County Supervisor Dorothy Dean who I had never seen lose her composure blew up at me.

“You’ve become a clown,” she yelled at me.

“You’re an entertainer!”

My calm, subdued attempt to respond to a colleague who had been 100% responsive went nowhere.

I was disappointed. You loved me before, but no more?

Disappointed, but not deterred, I never softened. If anything I accelerated my conservative messages.

At times I was the target of hateful e-mails, even death threats.

This is all a prelude to an essay I discovered a few months that analyzes just how smug, and that’s being diplomatic, liberals really are.

More on that in Part 2.
