A significant number of the angry people on the Left are criminals: President Carter informs us that right-wingers who are angry at Obama are overwhelmingly racist. How does he know this? Because they're mad, and Obama's black. Two plus two equals four, right dummies? Just like a year ago when all the right-wingers were ringing talk radio's phones off the hook with angry calls concerning plans for bailout. All that rage was proof positive that conservatives hate white people. Bush is white, isn't he?
I'll believe Carter's "overwhelmingly" claim when he brings me a carefully conducted study where, say, 80% of right-wingers report hating black people.
Oh, but I just happened to have data showing that a sizeable share of left-wingers are criminals. According to the General Social Survey, 29.8% of very liberal guys ages 18-59 say they have been arrested before. Therefore, it is illegitimate to oppose Republican policies because that's what gangsters do.
When I follow the example of liberals and smear the other side, at least I bring some evidence.
