Janeane Garofalo: How the Right Wing Form Their Opinions

This conversation between Janeane Garofalo and Rosie O’Donnell, discusses how those on the Right think, from their lack of empathy to their coordinated talking points. Although this is from a USAmerican perspective, it can still apply to the Right-wing here.

Art – The Modern Conservative Is

The modern conservative is engaged in one of man’s oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.

Right-wing Respect – Nick Greiner, David Cameron, Bill O’Reilly (and the surprising reasons why)

Yes, you read that correct. The respect is going out for standing up for gender rights, transgender rights, and gay rights. Meanwhile, PM Gillard refuses to change her stance in opposing marriage equality.

Nick Greiner
former NSW Liberal premier, taking about marriage equality
Self-evidently [it is] a matter of natural justice. It in no way stops religions or individuals acting in accord with their conscientious views… Also [it is] not a left-right issue. Support for the proposal is consistent with conservative support for marriage and for stable long-term relationships as well as individual freedom.

David Cameron
UK conservative prime minister has said I don’t support gay marriage despite being a Conservative. I support gay marriage because I am a Conservative.
source: The Guardian: David Cameron calls for Britain ‘to show some fight’

Bill O’Reilly
Really right wing USAmerican political commentator, though he calls himself independent, and occasionally comes out with some surprising opinions, here are two of them

On Fox News, this week, O’Reilly came out in support of a transgender Miss Universe Canada entrant who had been disqualified
What right does the Miss Universe pageant have to violate this lady’s right to be a woman? They are basically saying because you weren’t born a woman you don’t have a right to be a woman..[it] doesn’t sound right to me.

O’Reilly also previously defended Ellen DeGeneres being hired by JC Penney as a spokesmodel, which upset some right-wing conservatives because Ellen is lesbian, O’Reilly compared critics of JC Penney and Ellen to the communist hunter McCarthy
