    Do You Use the Term "Liberal" as an Insult?

    Taken from the other thread and from Winston's comment. So, tell us, when you use the term "liberal" do you use it to identify a political lean or ideology, or to be insulting?

    Oh, and here's a little additional piece. Anyone who chooses "No, I do not use it as an insult", will cause me to do a thorough search of their posts. I will then, for honesty's sake, post ANYTHING that seems to refute their claim that they do not use it to be insulting. Let's get a little honesty going here at DP.

    Go to it.

    No, but I have heard conservatives use it as such. Like I remember when Obama was running I heard alot of conservative radio host, hell even my family say that he was the most liberal senator in congress, as if that was supposed to make me not vote for him. I would say "yeah thats a good thing" just to watch them flip out

    Liberal, and don't use it as an insult for obvious reasons.

    So, how did you vote, Henrin? And I see I don't have to go far to search for posts... depending on your answer, of course.

    I'm butthurt 'cause I sat on some stinging nettles, is that 'cause I'm a liberal?

    Does it count of we use it sarcastically?

    As far as I know, I've never used 'liberal' as an insult. Pretty sure I haven't used 'conservative' as an insult either.
