Conservatism is Tribalism ??? Like Cannibalism...hmmm?
"You are all cannibals I say...that is what you are. I don't care how well educated you are...or how well you raised your children...or what you do for society...you loathe us orcs nad for that you are animals"
Okay...I made that up...but I understand much better now. It's not what the right believes as much as it is that we hate them...so because we hate them they oppose everything the right believes...to get even...for spite of course...so, should anyone wonder why they whine so much???
A comical opinion piece from a ??? Yup...NY Times Writer...Mikey's favorites.
Conservatives are prone to tribal behavior -- it's practically the definition of the term. Conservatives like those who conform to a certain dress, a certain way of talking. Those who shout "ditto" at the proper moment. They like those who go to the right churches and belong to the right clubs. More than anything else, they like those who can hate.
The same hatred of others that makes right wing blogs the go-to spot for "we should just nuke the whole Middle East into glass" language, also primes the pump for assaults like that launched against the Times reporters and editors. You think these guys are upset about sending their followers scurrying after people's families and children? You forget, these are orc children. It's not like attacking real kids.
Just listen to the language from the right. Liberals are immoral supporters of sodomites. We're lawless thieves who want only to take what isn't ours. We're traitors. We're gutless. We're godless. We're ugly.
For liberals, whose nature is to empathize, this is a hard thing to understand. These are people, just like us, only with different political views. Sure they are. Only, they think you are, by definition, a monster
OMG...I LAUGHED SO HARD MY SIDES HURT...THIS BELONGS IN SOME STAND-UP COMICS ROUTINE.

Can't you understand that we shouldn't worry about killing thousands of orcs if it saves one real person? Hell, can't you understand that killing thousand of orcs is a good thing, even if no one is saved? This is what makes it okay to listen in on phone calls: they're orc calls. You can open orc mail, go over orc bank accounts, and break into orc houses without a warning. Of course you can. Even thinking that orcs might have some rights is so twisted as to be laughable.
This is what puts the smug grin on Alberto. This is what adds the swagger to the posters at Little Green Footballs.
An abortion doctor shot in Florida, Matthew Shepard left dangling from a fence, a fifteen year old girl raped and murdered in Iraq -- these aren't things to be regretted. They're moments to celebrate triumph over the orcs. Shock and Awe? Awesome. Anyone who speaks out too loudly against such events is likely to be seen as looking... hmm, a little orcish.
Anything we do in Iraq or Afghanistan is okay. All the people there are orcs. Africa? Full of orcs. The French? Cheese-eating orcs.
Everyone in the media (except for Rush, and Bill, and Sean, and Ann, and all the others who help us in spotting the orcs) are orcs. If you're reading this on some liberal -- um, make that orcish -- blog, you know you're an orc.
You may see the folks on the far right as people who wandered into a different political space, but they don't see you that way. They think you're an orc, and if they can hurt the monster, they will.
