I Went to the Dark Side to Learn

i've been creeping around on "conservative" blogs kind of for fun. been getting a kick out of the hypocrisy and i truly want to understand them but i just don't get it.
here is the message i got when i signed up at this conservative news site to get a "barack obama exposed" 37-page missive (i was going to include some excerpts below but i've deleted them):
Dear Reader,
Thank you for signing up to receive HUMAN EVENTS' new special report, Barack Obama: Exposed! If you are looking forward to getting the ugly facts about the Left's new favorite poster boy, you've got to check out my bestseller Godless (which you can get absolutely FREE just for trying HUMAN EVENTS).
Though liberalism rejects the idea of God and reviles people of faith, this liberal hostility to traditional religion stems from the fact that liberalism is itself a religion -- a godless one.
In Godless, I reveal (with the help of the liberals who dominate our courts, government bureaucracies, schools, and media) that liberalism is now the established religion of our country. I throw open the doors of the Church of Liberalism and show you...

it goes on and on but it is an ad for ann coulter's book, who i'm learning is quite the piece of work. mind you, i'm new to this political stuff. why do these conservative peeps spew so much hate? is that godful? and why would they say liberals are godless? can't they see how extreme they are?

the writers for "barack obama exposed" (there are several, including "mr. spencer is director of jihad watch and author of the politically incorrect guide to islam" and bill o'reilly, the fox guy) are overtly racist. spencer's article is titled: "the next muslim president?" o'reilly writes about ... nevermind. nearly every page has some racist overtone. if this is conservativism then i understand clearly why john mccain is staying away from them. there's nothing exposed except the foolishness of the writers. basically, these people are nuts.
i'm going to delete that document and resist wandering off into the darkness.
