Furthermore, the 9/12 project is explicitly political. As noted, it was started by Beck, and the principles themselves are political. One principle is for every member to believe in God--the Republican Party is that party which beliefs belief in God should be a political issue. Another principle is for equal opportunity but not equal results. The Democrats tend to support equal results more. "The government works for me." The Democrats support a big government plan... "America is good." This is used to vouch for a conservative view of American Exceptionalism. Liberals often think America caused slavery, etc, and always blame America.

Right, I'm pretty sure liberals think Hitch is hateful, because he is always speaking the truth about Islam and supporting foreign policy objectives.

Nothing was received from you? Dude, Hitch was writing a column. He doesn't need to quote you, because its his opinion.

Right, and the LA Times writer thinks that American Exceptionalism is because of liberal values and so-called "progressives."

You mention that no one said any racist words at the healthcare protest. That is a fact.

However this issue of American Exceptionalism is an opinion. The definition of American Exceptionalism is itself an opinion. Liberals have different views on the issues, so of course they have a different opinion, and neither opinion is objectively true.

Opinions and facts are not the same thing.

To be honest, some conservatives also support state control of stuff. They disagree on how the government should operate, though. Liberals will argue that conservatives are wrong for supporting the Patriot Act and stuff (even though the Patriot Act is good) because they think the Patriot Act increases control. Also, conservatives might want restrictions on behaivor, such as restrictions on abortion, and in the past, there have been restriction on gay activities, which were supported by conservatives.

Um... Are you saying you're a double standardist?

Lets look at the facts: 1.) This LA Times liberal said that American Exceptionalism is a liberal value. 2.) Many conservatives think American Exceptionalism is a conservative value. 3.) So there is no problem in conservatives saying this, then liberals can also say this. Otherwise, you are a hypocrite and a liar.

Eh, I'm not to concerned about California... You remember when I admitted that I always lied and had no plan for California, after I thought I ended my political career? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIlzYD4tk78) Turns out the people of California didn't remember either... Well, now the recessions hit, and Bill Clinton really screwed me in 1992 when he said, "I feel sorry for Jerry Brown. When he was governor in the 70's, he asked me if I would support him when he ran for president." "Did you?" "Of course not!" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNl_dMVmuZQ)

So now I've got no job, and I thought, Hey, why not run for governor? Actually, I'm just spending all my days reading Andrew Breitbart's sites and commenting, and my aids may or may not be running the state, but what do I care?

Dude, I'm the Governor of the Nation's most populous state. Don't talk to me about intellectual discourse.

This is how the author summarized the view of the LA Times writer: "Left = exceptional social warriors, Right = arrogance."

That being said, the topic of what some LA Times guy thinks about American Exceptionalism is kind of irrelevant. American Exceptionalism isn't even a political issue in that it doesn't raise taxes, help our national security, start a war, increase regulations, or do anything else that results in political change.

That LA Times article by a liberal presented a liberal view of American Exceptionalism, as you noted, but often conservatives will present a conservative version. So, um, there is no problem with expressing one's opinion on that topic.
