I noticed that when using analogous examples of authority, you referred to known conservatives. Yet, it was my ultra-liberal college professors who insisted that I sympathize with muslim extremists and see their point of view in their hatred towards America. They also demanded that their students agree that the rights of gays supersedes that of straight people and tried to force us to overlook the fact that undocumented aliens were committing a crime against Americans by entering the country illegally. Those ultra liberals are the ones who are truly in authority in this country, in the colleges, in Washington D.C. and in the media. Those who disagree or refuse to yield to that authority are automatically labeled as haters and yes, sometimes mentally-ill.
