Today’s front page political news on Digg has multiple stories lambasting Bush, Cheney, Republicans, Lott, Giuliani, Rove, and any other deemed Conservative by the Digger elitist. The liberal elite who argue that Fox News is “unfair and unbalanced” are the first to throw fairness and balance out the window. But have you ever wondered why they hate so much? Consider the comments in those posts. They speak of “murdering idiots,” “Bush’s daily ass f***ing,” and the denigration goes on and on and on. It is an endless diatribe of insults and, yes, violence. Rarely are the posts thoughtful or supported with facts. They are just petulant.We can find the answer in some research done by Dr. Evan R. Harrington. In his work titled, The Social Psychology of Hatred, he points us to three reason for group hatred to help explain the vitriolic language of liberal Diggers.

The first approach may be thought of as a general model of social influence…The second approach might be termed an interpersonal attitude approach, in the sense that individuals are measured in the degree to which they hold attitudes corresponding to authoritarianism and social dominance, which in turn relate to social hostility and prejudice…The third approach focuses on social cognition or the way in which humans perceive the social world in a biased manner due to limits on the brain’s information processing capacity.

Let me interpret that in laymen’s terms for our liberal friends:

  1. You follow like lemmings;

  2. You have a bad attitude;

  3. You are dumb.

So now we know. How sad they have come to the point that their social status is dependent on posting some diatribe about Bush et al. that few in society will ever notice or care about. Next time you see those hate-filled posts, just understand they are sadly lost. Those liberal haters on Digg are to be pitied.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe says it best: “Hatred is something peculiar. You will always find it strongest and most violent where there is the lowest degree of culture.”

That’s what we’ve heard, and it’s unfortunate. Better moderation would most likely give cooler heads a chance to prevail.
