He didn't say "Republicans", he said "knee jerk Republicans".

To be fair, knee-jerk Democrats are just as bad, except they're bigger pussies.

Knee jerk Republicans have a definition of patriotism that includes only themselves.  They think they have a lock on patriotism, family values, and godliness.  They have very little patience for anyone who tries to discuss complex issues in an intelligent manner.  In their simple minds intelligence is very suspect and most likely indicates bleeding-heart, liberal, leftist, pinko, socialist, or communist tendencies (which are all basically the same thing according to these conservative Republicans).

In the famous words of American flag pin wearing President Bush, "You are either with us or against us."  In other words, there is no possibility of legitimate dissent by patriotic Americans or our historic allies.  You disagree and you're a Commie.

Thankfully your educated brain is far too intelligent and evolved to promote or engage in the same type of close-minded exaggeration or stereo-typing demonstrated by those crazy conservatives...  Roll Eyes

Thanks for removing all doubt.

Actually, I agree with your point that stereotypes are bad.  But there are some Republicans who fit the description I gave above - the kind who automatically term liberals "commies."  The first President Bush talked about "compassionate conservatism," and there are some Republicans who could be described that way too.
