I have been called a “Hater!” by several of my FaceBook Friends. With friends like this, who needs enemies? The word “Hater!” has quickly taken on greater use as the culture wars heat up and ideas begin to clash. Normally, I try not to let name calling sycophants get to me; but I am only human. I do not think of myself as a “Hater!” I like to think of myself as a nice guy. I even feel guilty when a squirrel or other small creature finds itself under my wheels as I travel down the road.
We are told “Haters are gonna hate.” I guess that is so, but I still have trouble thinking of myself as a genuine hater when it comes to life. I have known people who hate, and I have watched over the years as people become consumed with hate. That is not me! I consider myself a happy warrior in the current culture war. I have pity on many and I harbor no ill will toward any.
The use of the term “Hater!” has grown in recent days because of the cultural paradigm shift. Now, if you find yourself on the wrong side of Political Correctness, you are automatically a “Hater!” You might try to engage in debate, but the verdict is still the same: “Hater!” In the PC world, “Haters!” are what is wrong with America. Get rid of the “Haters!” and this country would be a perfect place to live, in spite of the Texas summer heat.
I find that it does not take much to be labeled a “Hater!” Usually the word “hypocrite” is often used to further describe me and my people. First, the charge is leveled and then the non-PC offender is indicted. Soon, the 1 or 2 person jury stands ready to convict. All that is necessary is for the sentence to be executed. Are you a hater? Let’s see:

Those in the PC world think that we are what is so terribly wrong with this country. If only we would just get out of the way, or die (thereby leaving our heirs open to whatever death tax mighty be due) or convert to their way of feeling (not thinking), America would be so much better.
