All throughout the 1970's Liberals chanted a perpetual litany of idignation about "Tricky Dick" and his (alleged) dirty tricks in political campains. With the outbreak of the WaterGate scandal, the liberal media shrieked with moral outrage about how "evil" Repbublicans and conservatives are, and the kinds of things they (allegedly) stoop to
Now it seems, the chickens have come home to roost.
I grew up thinking how liberals are supposed to be all about peace, love, and tolerance. Luckily I began to see in my teens how nothing could be further from the truth. The only tolerance liberals have is for their own point of view.
Case in point: the latest trend in liberal politics is dirty tricks, sabotage, and agents provocateur. Go to the links featured below, and you'll see what I mean.

http://www.jbs.org/jbs-news-feed/6205-cowardly-okc-letters-update People posing as supporters of The John Birch Society mailed letters in the society's name to media outlets in OKC containing racist rhetoric. JBS has called for an investigation of the imposters, and has issued public statements denying any support for racist ideas. Unfortunately the bell cannot be un-rung, and the court of public opinion stands ready to pass judgement.
Most conservatives like myself harbor no illusions about the visciousness of American politics. The entire history of this country has born that out. We just think it's hilarious how liberals preach a mighty sermon about peace, love, and tolerance, and then turn to the Marxist doctrine of anarchy and revolution by any means necessary.
If I were a member of the party echelon at the G.O.P. I'd use this in a big way. By engaging in this hypocrisy, liberals have handed a publicity tool to the Republicans on a silver platter, with garnish and caviar. It's too bad the G.O.P. is still trying to make itself into Democrats in elephant clothing. Otherwise they'd have the guts to take up this issue.
