Liberal name-calling is a common trait of liberals where they slander those whom they disagree with or dislike by falsely calling them things which they are not. Conservatives and Christians are the main targets of this behavior.
A notable example of liberal name-calling is the trend of labeling conservatives and conservative beliefs – even if the belief was mainstream only a few years prior – as "far-right" or "ultra-right." Additionally, the mainstream media frequently labels conservatives as "racist" even when they clearly are not.
For years now the left has labeled anyone who disagrees with them "racist" or "sexist" or "homophobic". Ironically, by overreaching in the use of those terms they have devalued the case against those who really are racists, sexists or homophobes. ... Each and every time we hear someone claiming that because a person has a certain belief in the political process he is mentally disturbed we have to call time out and insist that this is out of bounds. To say that my ideas are crazy is quite acceptable. To say that I am crazy is libel and slander.
If we succeed in stopping this absolutely intolerable practice of labeling people whose ideas you disapprove of as nuts we will force the liberals who use this tactic to debate the issues on the merits. Since they can no longer do so, if we win the first battle we will win the second as well.
