Just as you can’t make sense out of nonsense, You can’t expect logic from a socialist. Their political “beliefs” exist through lies and deception. Admitting otherwise would expose them for the frauds they are. Thus, they can’t afford honesty.
I have often thought the same thing about the talking heads on the alphabet networks. Where do they think their money comes from, if not from the free enterprise of the advertising industry? Don’t they care about their paychecks? Or do they have enough saved up that they can now stick it to the working class just for the fun of it?
