Liars, delusional, petrified, hypocritical, idiotic.
I often can't decide which of these most accurately describes regressives when I'm listening to their insane rants. Maybe it's all of the above, in some combination or another.
The right in America loves its canned tropes, but perhaps none so much as the 'government is evil' one. Ooooooohh! Look out. Big bad government is coming to get you.
Here's a recent example from a regressive fellow living in the South (I know, I know -- what a shocker that is!):
"I am a grown man. I do not need liberals telling me what to do. If you want to live like slaves to the government in your big cities and left-wing states, that's your problem. Keep your mitts off my liberty...
"Liberalism takes away freedom. Liberalism is inherently controlling over free people. Liberalism seeks to take away freedoms that have been historically rooted and guaranteed.
"I don't need you to tell me to eat my vegetables. I don't need you to tell me to buy health insurance. I don't need you to tell me to use less water when I shower. I don't need you telling me to buy a less gas guzzling vehicle. I don't need you telling me to use mass transit and live in a tiny little European-style apartment rather than the big, sprawling house I want. I don't need you requiring me to build my house with green materials.
"You really think modern American and European liberalism is about freedom? That's a joke. It is about you deciding how everyone must live. It is a hard fist of tyranny cloaked in a velvet glove."
Wow, eh? The hard fist of tyranny is haunting big cities!!
