Why the right hates teachers, firefighters and cops.

Teachers are smarter, firefighters are braver and stronger and cops are authority figures.

I've mentioned my encounters with folks on the right before on DU...one said of firefighters "It's God's will, some houses will burn." And of cops "I get my public safety from the barrel of a gun."

Many of these folks home school their kids because they think they are better teachers and they can control what their kids learn.

So, there you have it in a nutshell: mistrust of learning, distrust of authority and jealousy of those who risk their lives for others.

As a government employee, I really don't make as much money as conservative politicians imply. Yes, I make more money than the assistant manager at Mickey D's, but a college degree is not required to be an assistant manager at Mickey Ds.

I suspect liberals only support CHOICE when it's about aborting a baby.

Of the 3 mentioned in the OP, teachers are the only ones I've ever seen most liberals support. They especially seem to not like cops. Cops bust you for smoking pot most places. :rolleyes:

I don't know anyone who hates teachers, cops or firemen. I will say that the teaching profession, on the whole, has dropped its standards quite a bit from when my mother was a teacher in NYC, but that's another issue. However, the left is projecting. Many of them do hate specific groups of people, including professions. The left loathes the military, for example, not to mention bankers, energy producers and any corporation larger than a lemonade stand.

As a matter of fact, I hold a teaching certificate/license. I'm also a retired Soldier that has been in combat, so I'm certain that bravery has been addressed. As for authority figures? I retired as a company commander with a responsibility for 85 Soldiers (and their families). As a CO, I had many more authority figures over me than most "cops" ever have.

Why does the left hate the military? Probably because they are smarter, braver, and are authority figures. One other factor in their hate is: Their monkey handlers trained them to hate the military.

It's not that I hate them, it's just that I don't want people to die, or schools to shutdown, when they go on strike when they can't get their 29% raise [detroit teachers are demanding that]

Why the right hates cops and firefighters.....

I find that interesting. I can't speak for all cops. I can speak for those I've met over 25 yrs as a cop, and I've met a lot mostly throughout the southwest and south while shooting in competition. I retired in 1993, but still compete in matches in the SW occasionally. During those years competing in various matches, I've ridden on patrol in many, many counties, towns and cities in the south and southwest. Those I met at matches were local, state and some Federal (mostly Border Patrol).

In spite of the TV show COPS, and the various fictional cop related shows, I don't think I've run more than a small handful of cops who are liberal. Most are very conservative and right of center. I'm a member of the FOP. In every presidential election while I've been a member, going back to 1968, the FOP supported and/endorsed the Republican candidate for POTUS, and I don't recall here in NM them ever backing a democrat for senate or house.

The national FOP has always been a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. The FOP membership are working cops usually below the rank of lieutenant. Although it's left up to the individual lodge to set upper limits, as a rule ranks above lieutenant aren't permitted to join.

It's interesting that in 2004, every single FOP lodge in the nation, from Maine to California and Washington State to Florida voted to endorse Bush over kerry the Traitor. I don't have the statistics handy for 2008, but by a large majority they supported McCain over obama.

No doubt some on the right hate cops. We're people. Some hate doctors, nurses, dentists and plumbers and garbage collectors too.

Having dealt with the public for 25 yrs, I can say with some authority that I ran into a helluva lot more liberal types who hated cops, and anybody who disagreed with them, than those on the right.

Personally, I'm really becoming offended by the artsy-fartsy crowd who seem to be moving into this area at an alarming rate. I think they're trying to turn us into another Taos, or Santa Fe.

I think a better question would be "why do many on the left project their hatred on conservatives?"

They seem to view everything through a lens of hate. To disagree with a lib is to hate them. For example: disagree with a liberal homosexual and you are a homophobe
disagree with the ability for women to get abortions on demand, you hate women
disagree with obama's agenda, you are a racist
disagree with unlimited welfare and you hate the poor and homeless
disagree with with socialistic policy and you hate patriotic libs

One doesn't even have to disagree with something, them merely have to express support for something libs are against and you hate

support conservative talk radio and you endorse hate speech
support the pro-life movement and you endorse the hatred of women
support a conservative candidate and you hate the government, clean air, clean water and the environment
support traditional marriage and you hate homosexuals

Those on the far left acknowledge no middle ground and that is why they are doomed to live a unhappy existance blaming everyone for their failure to entice those in the middle to vote their way. Occassionally they manage to fool people in to thinking they're in the middle as Obama managed to do but now that the far left cat is out of his leftiest bag he has no hope with those whose views lay in the middle.

In the end all they have is their hate to comfort them, but being libs they know that hate is a negative emotion so they project that feeling on their opponents in order to feel justified as they live out there miserable, hateful narrative.

Not a pretty picture.

Are you finished? Well, allow me to retort.


Teachers are smarter
Some are, some aren't. We may not like the fact that education in this country has gone to the toilet but we certainly don't hate teacher. Hate that they push their political ideology on a captive audience, yes. Hate that some actually have the audacity to not grade fairly if a student dares have an independent thought of their own considering politics. Other than that, I admire teachers. They really have a tough job and some of them really try to get through while some just do it for summers off.


I've mentioned my encounters with folks on the right before on DU...one said of firefighters "It's God's will, some houses will burn."
You are such a fucking liar that it's really quite sad. You find me one person who ever said this. Just one. Not some bullshit you heard in your little drum circle over there but someone of importance and provide links but you won't because you can't because you know you're a fucking liar. Contrary to you and your ilk, all of us, at least here, admire firefighters a great deal for their bravery so chalk this one to another DUmmie lie.


And of cops "I get my public safety from the barrel of a gun."
Not only is this a lie but this one is really laughable. Putting aside that I, myself, am in law enforcement as was my father and older brother and most of my friends, we don't "get our public safety from the barrel of a gun" however, we, unlike you and your ilk, realize that cops can't be everywhere and in the oft chance that someone should break into my house or accost me on the street, the perp(people you and your ilk seem to admire and really sympathize with for some reason) isn't going to wait while I call the police so instead of getting stabbed or shot myself, I choose to protect myself. As for hating cops in general, so what you're telling me that all of those stooges in the OWS movement are right wingers? Who'd have thunk it.

Really, these people are complete jokes and this post just goes to prove.

Please forgive my ignorance in this matter...


Would someone please clue me in as to why I hate teachers, firefighters and cops? Did someone say something to that effect?


Thanks....

No, seriously. What brought on this rant? I'm still collecting "code words" for belittling our president and, I guess, missed something else :apologetic:

I find it difficult to believe that the poster who claims to have conversations with the"right" on DU is truthful since any that questions the left is immediately banned.

Um, I don't know about Michigan but no pension is guaranteed in NJ. Especially considering that the government has been raiding the pension system for years without paying back a dime. I have 12 more years to do and I fear that there is going to be nothing in the pension system to allow me to retire but considering my professions, I will be forced into it at age 65.

We luck out here in NM. I have Public Employee Retirement. All local and state employees pay into it, and the state cannot touch the money. PERA is good for the next half century.
