Politics and religion should be off-limits in social discourse

Liberals constantly violate that rule.

Debating a liberal is maddening: They think conservatives are evil, while we think they're silly.
[This related source is recommended in its entirety.]

“The problem is this: We conservatives think liberals are silly; they think we're evil. Tell a liberal that you hope President Obama will be defeated in the upcoming election, and you'll be branded a racist. Voice your opposition to same-sex marriage, and you're a homophobe. Express outrage at the idea of building a mosque on the spot where one of the planes' fuselages fell in the 9/11massacre, and you're an Islamophobe. If you support the tea party, or Rick Santorum for president, or defunding Planned Parenthood, or setting up credible border enforcement, you could be all of the above plus more: anti-woman, anti-poor-people, anti-tolerance and a "fascist" to boot. […] Liberals constantly violate the rule that politics and religion should be off-limits in social discourse. Toward the end of 2008, I received an invitation to some friends' Christmas party. Actually, it was a "holiday" party, since liberals never say "Christmas." The invitation informed me that we would be celebrating, among other things, the end of "eight years of Republican chicanery." Those friends weren't the only ones. A college pal's Christmas — er, holiday — card mailed around the same time rejoiced, "Our man won!" Our man? Liberals simply assume that if you possess a post-secondary degree and you've heard of Plato, you too would like to try Dick Cheney for war crimes and boycott the Lowes home improvement chain because it pulled its advertising from "American Muslim." Then, when they find out you're not on board, their faces petrify into Easter Island stone heads as they make a mental note to delete you from their iPhone address books.” [emphasis added]

It has become nearly impossible to socialize with liberals — they are always "on". It's as if they are getting even with their parents for every time they received a "time-out" for being little twits. Can't live with 'em; can't kill 'em. Sometimes you can't even avoid them entirely, at which time it becomes imperative to mask your contempt for them by claiming to be late for your emergency-appendectomy appointment.

What is their problem? I believe that somewhere along their path to maturity they took a detour that led them to the remedial school for the perpetually perplexed. This is where they imbibed the Kool-Aid and imbued themselves with the misconception that being self-righteous is equivalent to being right. After such a mind-altering experience, there is no stopping their ranting rage.

Liberals are on par with religious fanatics, warmalist mongers, and Mac users. None of which would matter much if it weren't for the inevitable double-whammy: they are obnoxious; and they are wrong.
