Hate This and I’ll Love You

February 14th, 2011

Since it is Valentine’s Day, here’s some more about love and hate…


Chris Matthews wonders what Obama would have to do to prove to the far right that he loves America. The panel responds that there isn’t. But I think there is something Obama could do.

He could hate.

The far right measures love for America only in terms of whom you hate and how much you hate them.

Do you hate the French? Europe? No? Then you don’t love America.

Do you hate Muslims? No? Then you don’t love America.

(That’s why right-wingers think Obama is a secret Muslim. He must be, or he’d hate Muslims like all “real” Americans do.)

Do you hate anyone, here and abroad, who criticizes America, or dares to point out our shortcomings? No?

Then you don’t love America.

Obama doesn’t seem to really hate anyone.

And that’s why they hate him.

Here’s Hardball’s 2/14/11 panel discussion about a recent example of right-wing love and hate (CPAC).

Here’s your theme music, a very cool acoustic version and a rare live version of Hate This and I’ll Love You by Muse (read the song’s strangely appropriate lyrics below).

Hate This & I’ll Love You” lyrics
Oh I am growing tired
Of allowing you to steal
Everything I have
You’re making me feel
Like I was born to service you
But I am growing by the hour
 
You left us far behind
So we all discard our souls
And blaze through your skies
So unafraid to die
 
‘Cause I was born to destroy you
And I am growing by the hour
And I’m getting strong in every way
Yeah, Yeah
 
You led me on
You led me on
You
 
Oh, and I’m getting strong in every way
Yeah, Yeah
