Liberal hate speech is hate speech, that is, widely provocative speech to denigrate a legally protected class or group of citizens defined by legislation, employed by liberals. Liberals support affirmative action and political correctness, but their use of liberal hate speech indicates that true tolerance does not necessarily follow from these tenets.

Liberal hate speech against persons with disabilities

  • Former Vice President, Nobel Prize winner, and senior Democratic Party elder stateman Al Gore mocked children with disabilities by referring to his political critics as having "an extra chromosome." [3]
  • Liberal pundit and columnist Maureen Dowd refered to "extra chromosome conservatives" in an interview with Bill Maher's on HBO. The National Down Syndrome Society issued a statement saying use of the term "extra chromosome" as a negative descriptor "is insensitive and demeaning to the more than 350,000 people in the United States who have Down syndrome, which occurs when there is an extra copy of the 21st chromosome.... Ms. Dowd has perpetuated it as a slur against hundreds of thousands of Americans who are contributing members of society and who deserve the same respect that we all expect." [4]
  • On March 3 2009, President Barack Hussein Obama ridiculed children with disabilities on Jay Leno's program when answering a question about his bowling prowess. Obama said "It was like Special Olympics." [1][2] [3] The CEO of the Special Olympics defended the program noting the President had "set us back decades with his comments." [5] Gov. Sarah Palin, mother of a Down Syndrome child observed, "This was a degrading remark about our world's most precious and unique people, coming from the most powerful position in the world." In her resignation speech as Governor of Alaska, Palin stated:
"this decision comes after much consideration, and polling the most important people in my life - my children, where the count was unanimous. In response to asking: 'Want me to make a positive difference and fight for ALL our children's future from OUTSIDE the Governor's office?' It was four "yes's" and one "hell yeah!" ... much of it had to do with the kids seeing their baby brother Trig mocked by some pretty mean-spirited adults recently..." [6]
  • News24 of South Africa has on its website an obituary for Ronald Reagan entitled, Gay about Reagan's death. [4] and quotes Jon Beaupre, a gay journalist and Los Angeles radio talk show host as saying, "I have a fisling that an awful lot of gay people are going to be cheering, that 'Ding-dong! The wicked witch is dead'."
KURTZ: O'Reilly also criticized you for making a joke about Charlton Heston, the former NRA chief, having Alzheimer's.
KURTZ: Was that in poor taste in retrospect?
CLOONEY: Yes, oh, yes. It was in poor taste. It was a funny joke. It was in a room of 100 people. Yeah, (UNINTELLIGIBLE). I have a lot of good friends who -- in fact, I have a very good friend who is dying of Alzheimer's. And it was just a funny joke. [5]
  • Democratic Senator Al Franken of Minnesota peddled a book entitled Rush Limbaugh is a Big, Fat, Stupid Idiot, viciously ridiculing a person struggling with obesity and hearing disabilities.

  • Colin Powell is a respected and popular Statesman who rejected offers to be drafted for President in 1996. In an interview, liberal activist Harry Belafonte, who is also African-American, stated, "there are those slaves who lived on the plantation, and there were those slaves who lived in the house. You got the privilege of living in the house if you served the master to exactly the way the master intended to have you serve him. That gave you privilege. Colin Powell is permitted to come into the house of the master, as long as he will serve the master according to the master's dictates." [9] Powell was later rehabilitated after endorsing Barack Obama for President in 2008.
  • Former Vermont Governor and current DNC chairman, Howard Dean joked during a speech, “You think the Republican National Committee could get this many people of color in a single room? Only if they had the hotel staff in here.” [10]

Liberal hate speech against Hispanics

  • Alberto Gonzales. The first Hispanic U.S. Attorney General, was consistently mocked on liberal websites as 'Alberto "Speedy" Gonzales' [11] during his tenure. Speedy Gonzales is a reference to a disparaging stereotypical cartoon character of Hispanics that Hollywood attempted to popularize in the 1950s and 60s. Upon his retirement, NBC News anchor Matt Lauer called Gonzales "a piñata" for the Democrats. [7]

Liberal hate speech against Jews

  • Rev. Jesse Jackson said on Jaunary 25, 1984, "all Hymie wants to talk about, is Israel; every time you go to Hymietown, that's all they want to talk about." [12]

  • Former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton referred to a campaign subordinate as a "Jew bastard."[15][16][17][18][19]
