John Hinderaker Projects

March 8, 2012

One of John Hinderaker’s favorite fallacies is that democrats are the Party of Hate.

Millions of Americans voted for Barack Obama in the hope that he would be a trailblazer who would conduct the presidency in a new way. Well, he has: Obama has been the most divisive president in our modern history, unabashedly stirring up hate against not only his political enemies, but against private citizens who exercise their right to participate in our democracy. The most recent hatefest has been directed against Rush Limbaugh, and Obama has personally stirred the pot.

Barack Obama has been a terrible president in many ways, but perhaps his most poisonous legacy is his cynical fomenting of partisan hate to advance his own political interests.

Where does Hinderaker get these mistaken ideas – especially since I have never heard Barack Obama make one single hateful statement towards conservatives or private citizens. Simple, he is projecting. It’s John Hinderaker that hates liberals and he has proven it time and time again. In fact, Hinderaker made a rare appearance in today’s comment section to say the following:

 How dumb are liberals, anyway? Their stupidity seems to be a bottomless pit.

Has Obama ever made such a statement towards conservatives?

After Obama’s last State of the Union address, here is how Hinderaker described it: Of the Ignorant, By the Ignorant, For the Ignorant. In another post, Hinderaker accuses democrats of fueling anti-Semitism by speaking out against income inequality! I can only imagine how much more divisive Hinderaker would think Obama was if he made statements like those!

Last week, Hinderaker wrote a complementary eulogy for Andrew Breitbart – the man who tweeted the following after the death of Ted Kennedy:

Rest in Chappaquiddick.

he was a f@#$er. a big ass motherf@#$er. this aint a 24-hour zone, baby. he was a bad, bad dude. & if mary jo were your kin youd be dancin’.

This duplicitous bastard spit on GWB’s face when he reached across party lines. Twas a grade school trick. Even til the end, he was a prick.

I’ll shut my mouth for Carter. That’s just politics. Kennedy was a special pile of human excrement.

Why is it that a person who actually made hateful comments is praised by Hinderaker, while a man who hasn’t (Obama) is accused of “fomenting partisan hate”?

And when it comes to racism, this is what Hinderaker said here, here and here.

In my experience, both violent rhetoric and racism are primarily found on the left–I am tempted to say, almost exclusively on the left.

Racism of this ugly sort is common on the left.

One might have thought that the days of calling African-Americans “monkeys” were over. Not, however, among liberals.

John Hinderaker repeatedly writes that liberals are stupid racists. Then he claims that Obama is divisive and “fomenting partisan hate”?! Sounds like Hinderaker is projecting.

    I wonder why John didn’t say anything like this when he was on MPR. That was where I heard about Power Line and I thought he sounded like a reasonable person. I knew from his comments on air, that I would disagree with many of his positions, but his demeanor made we want to challenge myself to read his blog in hopes of gaining a better understanding of the far right. Over the past several months, Power Line has left a terrible taste in my mouth. Thank you for compiling just a few examples why I have come to dislike John after being duped by him on MPR.

      Was he being interviewed by someone who wasn’t on the far right? If so, he probably didn’t have the guts to say this stuff on MPR, since he probably would have been called on it.

    I heard about 35mins of it in my car on my way to work one day.
