Nations that live under Sharia law have some interesting rules to live by. If you're gay, a woman, non-Muslim, happen to utter a disparaging word against the prophet, or have the inclination to engage in a pattern of free speech, Sharia Law is really not something you want to deal with.
I do not condone the racial and religious prejudice that exists most everywhere now. It's definitely worse in many countries, like France for instance, but in America you can say what you please and pretty much only take a tongue lashing, as opposed to a real lashing in many countries. Countries like France have found out what it's like to be taken advantage of after you've been naive for so long.
On this board we're treated to many a delightful phrase. If you want to see some really colorful outbursts against conservatives, or just plain Republicans, look for posts that have a ton of recs. (some responses sound similar, because many have multiple screen names). While people like Rush Limbaugh and many others use their screed for entertainment and money-making purposes, and maybe even believe most of what they spew, the Liberals that attack them use whatever clever language they can to make sure everyone despises them as the evil trash they represent.
After 911, once the initial aspects of the horror were over, they came out of hiding again. Naturally, people that had always been leery of Islamo-terrorists got severe tongue lashings. Eventually, most liberals came to believe this was America's fault after all. (yes, we had some Evangelical types blame our culture and gays, but that's a whole nother story). If someone had come from another planet and viewed this and other boards at the time, they would have assumed most Liberals hated at least half the people in this country, and were indeed sympathetic to most anyone from any other nation, regardless of their behavior.
Indeed, this is unusual behavior. It's obvious that Republicans and Democrats have much to disagree about. But the most likely target of Liberal's rage would be the Islamic nations that live under Sharia law. Their advocacy of violence, intolerance, treatment of women, etc... But alas, you'll not read much about them, excepting when someone brings them into the conversation.
I suspect attitudes will change over time, as they have throughout the world in many Enlightened and diverse countries. At some point, opinions are all about personal experience.
