The left has abandoned all pretense of logic and reason, and is left with nothing but its hate. They’ll never admit to Obama’s failure because they can’t see beyond his color. Their shallow, superficial perspective has been revealed, and THEY are angry.

“The left has abandoned all pretense of logic and reason...”

Here is another perspective. The left is evil genius. Their are two types of leftist, chalatan and dupe.

One manipulates with lies and the other believes.

Why? Groupthink.

If you recast groupthink behaviors considered to be antithesis to good decision making and instead encourage those behaviours, you can manipulate weak minded people who value group affiliation/belonging above all else into following leaders who only seek to USE group members to advance their own agenda of self.

This hangs on the wall of every leftist charlatan:

Thou shalt create an illusion of invulnerability shared by most members to foster excessive optimism and encourage extreme risks taking

Thou shall not allow any member to question the group’s inherent morality, instead members shall be encouraged to ignore the ethical or moral consequences of their decisions

Thou shalt promote collective efforts to rationalize in order to discount warnings, or other information that might lead members to reconsider their assumptions before they recommit themselves to their assumptions

Thou shalt reinforce stereotyped views of enemy leaders as too evil to warrant genuine attempts to negotiate, or as too weak and stupid to counter whatever risky attempts are made to defeat their purpose

Thou shalt self-censor any deviation from the apparent group consensus, inclining each member to minimize the importance of their doubts and counterarguments

Thou shalt create and maintain a shared illusion of unanimity concerning judgement conforming to the majority view

Thou shalt apply direct pressure on any member who expresses strong arguments against any of the group’s stereotypes, illusions, or commitments, making clear that this type of dissent is contrary to what is expected of all loyal members

Thou shalt appoint mindguards to protect the group from adverse information that might shatter their shared complacency about the effectiveness and morality of their decisions.
