Say Hello to My Liberal Friend: Moonbat Monday the First in a Series April 27, 2009

Ever experienced being a traveler in a strange land?
Can’t understand the language the natives speak?
You feel awkward while adjusting to the ins and outs of a new culture.

That was the way I felt as a democrat. For some reason I was in the foreign country but I didn’t understand why.I was there simply because my mother had brought me. This especially became apparent during 9/11. I lived in New York City at the time and was effected personally by the events of the tragedy.

When Bush sent troops into Afghanistan I had friends that were so angry they took to the streets in protest. The following conservation made it oh so obvious that I was a foreigner in a liberal land.

LIBERAL FRIEND:Muthafuckers sent troops into Afghanistan. Fucking Assholes. Bush is suck a fucking ASSHOLE
AFROCITY:”But they attacked us!!! We have to defend ourselves and let them know that they can’t do this again. They killed over 3,000 people. LIBERAL FRIEND:What’s the matter with you? We can’t just go attacking countries just because they attack us.
AFROCITY: Why not? Who knows what else Bin Laden has planned for us.
LIBERAL FRIEND: (Looks at me like I am carrying a gun in a school yard, may ask to see my liberal passport at any moment)
AFROCITY: (I want to end this conversation. I am angry someone I know has died. I need to finish cleaning the dust and debris from my apartment)
LIBERAL FRIEND:Karma deserves to bite America in the ass.
AFROCITY: I find it interesting that you are a self professed atheist yet you believe in Karma.
LIBERAL FRIEND: Karama is not a deity.
AFROCITY: Touche, very well then. (goes back to watching CNN)

My liberal friend protested the strikes against Afghanistan. I stayed home and watched the country change. Every brownstone in Park Slope, Brooklyn had a US flag hanging from somewhere. Protesting as an act is something that never appealed to me- a liberals right of passage I preferred to skip.

Highly Evolved Moonbat Specimen: Liberalis Goracle Delusionalis

“Days of Rage” pictures from the 1960’s looked crazy to me. Flower children, Charles Manson, Woodstock, riots… My brother was into the Black Power thing, had a huge afro that came with a hair pic permanently attached. He was about 17 years old and a bastion of black and pissed off critical thought as he sat around a card table with his gang buddies smoking pot. Angry over their plight as black men, they would play cards, smoke weed, drink, smoke weed, drink, play cards. I was continually regalled with tales of “the man”, and how that spearheaded the black revolution. Fuck the man. Fuck the white man’s war. He played a lot of The Doors and Pink Floyd. As a three year old I was amused by the whole thing, it was fun. There was always a certain point of the evening where I didn’t have to hide anymore and my brother would prop me on his knee so I could play too–and drink beer. (Which is why I may loathe the taste of it today).

That depiction was one of the good days. By the time I was six there was a clear message from my family that black people were basically screwed and I should be angry about it from birth. My brother carved his entire social identity on that notion. He became a liberal moonbat and began to involve himself in my social life. Holly Hobbie was one of my favorites. My bedroom was devoted to the character. I had the dolls, the house, the clothes including the bonnet. Brother did not approve of my obsession with Holly. She was a part of the establishment. Holly Hobbie was white and very ummmm, boho… Vermont folksy,blond hair and blue eyes, makes gooseberry jam and moonshine.

Holly Hobby. Racism ripped us apart.

Holly Hobbie. She is not a moonbat but racism eventually ripped us apart.

She lived alone with a cat and fed the mouse some cheese every day. You know, a free spirit who would grow up to be an environmentalist or a midwife. She was without a doubt a liberal, but Holly was definitely not a card carrying “down with the cause” black power kind of gal. Wild berries and honey with scones had very little to do with powdered milk and Spam sandwiches. His complaining to my mom about how little Afrocity was falling into a white man’s trap fell on death ears. She told him to go to school, get a job, or get out of the house. One day while insulted by my mom’s racial ignorance he was being especially nasty and unbearable. I was sitting in front of the TV watching Dream Of Jeanie, eating a bowl of Neapolitan ice cream in my Holly Hobbie dress. Dr. Bellows came on the screen. I had a crush on him (don’t ask).

“Mom, I am gonna marry Dr. Bellows someday” I declared.
“I know.” Mom answered from way back in the kitchen.

Faster than I could fold my arms and blink, my brother grabbed me up from the floor. My expression smiling and laughter at first but he got rough. “Ouch, stop that. MOMMY”
I could not believe it. He tore off my Holly Hobbie dress and I stood there in middle of the living room floor butt naked. I grabbed for the dress kicking and screaming while being dragged across the orange psychedelic linoleum. Mom came out from the kitchen and there was a battle that left scars. I had been shamed and bitten. The dress was beyond repair and that was my first encounter with a moonbat.

From the Urban Dictionary:


An unthinking or insane leftist — in other words, most modern leftists.

Moonbat can also be used as an adjective, e.g. a moonbat professor. According to the Wikipedia entry for moonbat, the word was coined in 2002 by the Editor of Samizdata, Perry de Havilland, and was a variation on the name of radical British activist and columnist George Monbiot.

Originally, the term “moonbat” was intended to be more politically neutral, and described wackos on the left and the right, but it quickly acquired its current usage of being applied almost exclusively to those on the left.

The term also references the moon much in the same way that “lunatic” refers to the insanity-causing powers of the full moon (luna = moon). Bloggers occasionally analyze the behavior patterns of various moonbat “species” as if they were actual animals, and even give them satirical Linnaean taxonomical names, such as “moonbattus berkeleyensis”.

Okay I get it. You mean like this?

2. moonbat

Any number of irrational and hysterical individuals whose self-indulgent intellectual indolence has led them to a visceral hatred of all things western. Moonbats tend to frequent anti-globalization and numerous other forms of rallies, demonstrations, sit-ins, and the like, tend to look dirty, and can frequently be heard using terms such as, “imperialism”. The mark of a true moonbat is the total lack of perspective (i.e. “if a dictator provides free healthcare, I like that dictator” – actual moonbat quote).

Hmmmm. I got it!!!

Absolutely frightening. No wonder I never liked demonstrations. I have always fought their attempts to convince me that my country sucks. At first glance, they seem to be concerned with what’s going on around them. Purposeful and social in nature. Outdoorsy types reveling in the smell of trees and grass (cough, cough). They seemed normal but as I interacted with them, something unnerved me. It gnawed at my brain like a rat and was intensely liberal in nature. Then it came to me. They are always angry. Bitching seems to suit them well as they never want to see both sides. Diversions are created in order to avoid coming up with pragmatic solutions.

I began to avoid, treated them well in every respect. The sight of John Kerry sickened me. I lied and said I voted for him just to appease my liberal friends. Conflicted, I did not vote at all that year. The assault and moonbattery grew during the Democratic primaries of 2008. Forget having any sort of realistic dialogue. They had a skewed portrait of democracy and free speech. Speech was free as long as it was what they liked to hear. Do these ghastly moonbats honestly represent the entire left wing?

Stay Tuned and we will find out.

    Afrocity – fellow SGP member from Gilbert AZ here – saw your blogsite on SGP and went to it. Absolutely blown away by your writing and the great graphics you include – so visually appealing. I have included it in my favorites and will check in daily.

    Thank you,

  2. afrocity Says:

    Hey, Diane thanks. Anyone from Smart Girl Politics is a friend of mine!!!

    Arizona, a state I have yet to visit (sigh).

  3. Valorie Says:

    Oh My Gosh! You and I could have been sisters! I still have my Holly Hobbie dolls and a gazebo! My girls all played with it and loved it. And I always liked Dr. Bellows too! He was so sensible and I always wanted him to find out the truth about Genie. The rest is brilliant as well. The moonbats are truly the “angry left.” And I have often wondered are libs still angry and want to rail against “the man” if their best hope at socialism and actually getting things right (in their mind) is actually in the White House.

  4. boldandbald Says:

    Outstanding post AC. I am curious, is this the same brother that later entered the military? If so, I would say that may have saved his life. Has he started to see the light yet?

    • afrocity Says:

      The very same one B&B. The military made him a lot more conservative…Very conservative but he still votes Democrat out of habit.

  5. afrocity Says:

    I am having some avatar issues today.

  6. manbearpig68 Says:

    Great story!! I think all the Moonbats need to go down to VZ or Cuba and see how they like livin’! Sean Penn can take them down there and get them settled in..

  7. Janis Says:

    I’m a rather dark shade of white — dark enough that my mom always made SURE that the dolls I bought and played with looked like me, too. šŸ™‚ She’s always on my ass to get a haircut though, so maybe she might not have been so anxious for me to play with black-haired dolls with hair to the knees! šŸ™‚

    I remember how disappointed I was the first time I went to a protest as well. I saw so many people who were there who had no clue what the hell was going on, but who just wanted an excuse to wave a sign and make themselves the center of attention. I saw a bunch of people who couldn’t give a rat’s about the Iraq war (this was under Bush I) but who just used it to thump their own personal drum. When one is at a war protest, Im’ sorry, but WTF are you carrying a sign about veganism?

    It was such a damned circus, and there was so many incredibly stupid people there from both sides — from the anti-war idiots who didn’t even know where Iraq WAS to the pro-war dopes driving around in jeeps who didn’t know where Iraq was and who could find the time to make fun of the other side but nto to sign up and actually fight. Fools all around.

    I really lost ANY respect for the concept of “protesting” that day. Nothing but ego-stroking. Walking around making a traffic nuisance of oneself and being convinced you accomplished something, when the only thing you accomplished was stroking your own damned ego.

    Protesting is the most self-centered thing in the world. Screw waving a sign. Here’s an idea, Mrr/Ms Protestor: get your ass to law school so you can actualyl achieve something in favor of your preferred cause. Whoops sorry — that would be actual WORK, wouldn’t it? Much easier to walk around with a sign then go get a beer.

    • afrocity Says:

      Janis those are strong words. I am not wholly against protesting, I just don’t like protesting for protestings sake. It is done some much nowadays that it is losing it’s effect. The Boston Tea Party, Woodstock, and rebellions all have their place and of course it is freedom of speech. There are two sides to every protest and I can’t see how it does anything beyond getting the message out that you are pissed. If that satisfies you, then fine. However, if you want real solutions there are more effective ways. Ultimately you must confront the “opposition” to get a solution.

      Let me add that protesting is not just for the left and I was very shocked at moonbat reactions to the tea parties such as Janeanne Garofolo.

      • fireandair Says:

        I think we might have crossed wires — I’m also saying that I dislike protesting for protesting’s sake. And honestly, that’s what so much of it is. People just yelling for their own egos instead of trying to really understand a problem and get something done toward it.

      • Janis Says:

        I think we crossed wires someplace — I’m agreeing with you entirely. So much protesting seems to be just about ego-stroking instead of really getting something done, on both sides.

    • afrocity Says:

      Janis I understood and was agreeing with you. Your feelings were clear. I was only saying that you did not hold back.

      I also agree that each side has fringe whackos.

  8. Daveman Says:


    I relate so much to some of your experiences. I myself started out as a far left wing democrat, socialist sympathizer. I was addicted to MSNBC and anti American views. WHY? well, My school had me reading all kinds of anti American books and lectures etc. I thought i knew it all. eventually… I started my own independent research on history, politics and economics. After setting my pride aside, my logical, rational brain could no longer hold my leftest views. I disassociated with many friends because of my change. They whine about everything and blame everyone except themselves for problems.

    My shower thought that sparked my change because i was always a stickler about fairness.

    “what is equal is not always fair” and
    “what is fair is not always equal”

    hmm. i thought about that a lot.
    if i work hard, should the person who works less hard than i have the same outcome? NO! so i have gradually changed my stance from the left to the right. more to it than that but that was my start.

    Great blogs by the way. boy do you pump them out.

    I suggest if you have any time to check out
    you can poll, blog, debate etc.

    link to my profile.

    As the Socialist Party candidate for president, Norman Thomas said in a 1944 speech: “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism,’ they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” He went on to say: “I no longer need to run as a presidential candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.”

    • afrocity Says:

      Dave, I saw that quote by Norman Thomas recently and boy does it mirror what we are seeing today. GM now = Government Motors, universal health care run by Obama. It is all very troubling.

      Clinton was the last Democrat I have voted for as POTUS. I still feel good about that vote and would even repeat it if I went back in time. A lot has happened to the left and DNC between then and now. The party and its followers have become the very thing we used to hate.

  9. LJSNAustin Says:

    Hey, I think I know that long-haired moonbat from Berkeley! Or at least some Austinites that look alot like him…

  10. Intrepid Says:

    AC, you have a gift. I felt I was right there in your living room with you as you watched Dr Bellows. I didn’t like him so much, but I did like Major Healy. He was a doofus, and I liked doofus characters as a kid.

    But I actually teared up while reading of your brother’s actions toward you, and I wanted to go into that room and kick him in the shins! LOL. My inner angry kid wants to come to your defense!

    So glad that he’s out of that now, and I am so grateful for his service to our country. And I’m grateful for your insights and words of wisdom. Both of you do your parents proud by standing up for what you believe in. And for not being shy in it, too!

  11. HippieRepublican Says:

    Unlike Obama, you have a gift….loved you at TC, love you even more (& proud of you) for going your own way! I used to read your stuff on TC and wish that I knew you (and AngieNC) because you were so cool. Then, after a brief hiatus, I returned and you had flown the coop. Glad to see you back there and here (& SGP)! Thanks for sharing your words and thoughts! Keep on truckin’, girl!
