The Bullying Left

Does this sound familiar to us Israelis in our experience with Haaretz, Amos Oz, Meretz, Tzipi Livni, Hanan Zouabi, etc.?:-

the left is the greatest purveyor of bullying...Bullying has morphed into the left’s go-to tactic, as they attempt to quash their opponents through fear, threat of force, violence, and rhetorical intimidation on every major issue... ...the simple strategy used by liberals and their friends in the media [is]: bully the living hell out of conservatives. Play the race card, the class card, the sexism card. Use any and every means at your disposal to demonize your opposition—to shut them up. Then pretend that such bullying is justified, because, after all, conservatives are the true bullies, and need to be taught a lesson for their intolerance. Hidden beneath the left’s supposed hatred of bullying lies a passionate love of its vulgar tactics. The left has created a climate of fear wherein [their opponents] must abandon their principles, back abhorrent causes, and remain silent. They believe [_____] is a force for evil, that our military is composed of war criminals, and that patriotism is the deepest form of treason. They incite... riots and threaten violence by playing the race card, then claim they’re advocates for tolerance...No target is off limits...

That is from this book, Bullies: How the Left's Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans.
