OK, check this out -
Arguing with a liberal is like playing chess with a pigeon.
No matter how well you play chess,
the pigeon just knocks over all the pieces,
craps on the board,
spews some unintelligible profanities,
and struts around like he won.
That describes the liberals to a T
A prime example of this is the redistribution of wealth. They see it as a moral imperative that the government makes sure the populace is fair, equitable, and charitable.
When they are confronted with the Christian interpretation of the same ideals and that the Christian will do it because it is the Godly thing to do...above government intervention...they cannot grasp this Grace in the Christian heart and soul.
That Grace, which is not redistribution of physical wealth, but of encouraging everyman to be the best he is able and the resulting benefits of the success eludes the liberal mindset for their spirit is empty. They speak of a society aspiring to such things, but fail to realize that it is not the deeds that creates that society. It is the Grace, from the God which they deny, that creates such a society.
The ‘greed’ that they see in the world around them is a result of their very own actions. The taking and stripping away of things to build up another man's self-esteem fails every time, instead it destroys both men and the societal culture between them. They rail on about self-esteem and fail to realize it does not come from the trappings of the physical world, but from a man's own ability to succeed at something. The awarding of ‘participation’ ribbons and awards is a great example of faux esteem building.
They spew those unintelligible words at us during a debate, because it may be the first time in their lives they realize they must experience defeat. Their faux self-esteem becomes mortally wounded and their fantasy world is taken apart brick by brick. They are unprepared to deal with those who not only disagree with them, but are able to demonstrate in the liberals own psychology why the liberal view is misguided and dangerous to the very ‘dream’ they are trying to build.
Yes...I have played many a chess game like that.
What an excellent analogy.
I love your pigeon analogy! Is it yours? I want to steal it, but also to give attribution.
Perfect description. Arguing with liberals is also, no doubt, what gave rise to the phrase, “I refuse to engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed person”...
