Posted on 08/18/2012 2:14:18 PM PDT by EveningStar
This scene is a microcosm of how liberals seek to silence the opposition by censorship and leveling personal attacks while avoiding the issues at hand. It further elucidates their ignorance of the issues, their bad habits of changing the subject during the debate, and their wild self-constructed fantasies of the world at large. Liberalism is a mental disorder.

Liberalism may well be a mental disease, but it is socially contageous. Uncritical, irrational thinking spreads amoung like minded people, i.e. college campuses.
IMO, you can’t reason with libs because they are too often driven by raw emotion. Whether the subject is abortion, union loyalties, race or the economy an overwhelming majority seem to be driven by love of power, greed, selfishness, envy and covetousness. These emotions eventually coalesce into a mindless hate that blinds them to all reason. They want to dispossess others of something they themselves did not have the discipline or intelligence to possess on their own.
I still laugh at this one every time I see it!
The libs’ lifeline is racism.
My definition of liberals is that they are ignorant, arrogant bigots who must project their character flaws upon their betters to maintain their false sense of moral superiority.
Liberal’s main disease is truth decay. They must reject absolute truth to rationalize their ideas.
I consider people who choose their ideology over truth to be morally deficient.
now it's constantly changing the subject till it leads back to Bush...
Keen observations. As a former liberal I can tell you one way to really drive them nuts is to steal their thunder. They hate that. Liberal: “You’re a racist!’’. Conservative: Okay, what’s your point?’’. Liberal: “So you admit you’re a racist?’’ Now here’s the good part, like Christ replied to Pilate when he said to HIM, ‘’ But you’re the King of the Jews’’. Christ replied, “It’s you that say I am’’. You keep doing that to liberals and at first they’ll look at you dumb-founded and then they’ll repeat the charge. And you keep replying, “It’s you that say I am’’ and after a while they’ll give up. It’s not as if you’re ever going to win an argument with them because they can see reason so you’ve just got to keep stealing their thunder and render them speechless. Liberals aren’t used to being made to shut up.
Typo: meant to say ‘’can’t see reason’’.
Liberals think it is “open minded” to not accept what are actual truths. They believe they can just “substitute your reality with my own”, as though it’s equally valid.
The problem is that this “open mindedness” actually promotes a self-deluded sense of “intelligent nuance”, where somehow, having a more complex view of the world actually translates to a more mature moral basis. Therefore the only solutions to problems caused by liberalism is more liberalism, otherwise we’re “going backwards” in their view, especially if the alternative is a more conservative approach.
They say “low I.Q.” is attributed to conservatism (and Christianity) without realizing that a divine truth should be understandable by all people, not just the “smart” ones. The fact that you can be very intelligent and yet be completely immoral doesn’t compute for them. Evil is not stupid. In their world, the only thing that has value is the way they’re viewed by others (as super-smart), which only leads to narcissistic behavior and the belief that they know better than everyone, especially those that “believe in fairytales”.
I like to ask liberals, “what is your philosophical basis for what you consider ‘right and wrong’?”. The response I often get is “I know wrong when I see it”. Really? ...there’s nothing in human culture that can back that up. Look at the Middle East, where it is the “right” thing to do to stone to death a woman for adultery (or execute gays). Ultimately, your sense of “right and wrong” comes from your cultural surroundings. You take it for granted. You don’t see how it shapes you. In the USA our philosophical basis for “right and wrong” are Judeo-Christian values. When we say our rights our given to us under God, we put a certain set of rules in place for government and law. They want to reject that and say that “human wisdom” (and law) should preside over God’s law (think gay marriage). To me, this is ultimately what we mean by “fabric of society”, they want to change that while being too foolish to recognize the chaos that would ensue. Right and wrong will be torn apart. How long until a Church is forced to perform a gay wedding? Once we live under “mans law” there’s nothing to stop that, especially when such people have such a low opinion of the religious.
...seems I’m ranting a bit here!! lol. ....liberals either “wake up” or they don’t, I’m glad to hear you did :)
Thank you for your well stated and thought out response. To liberals the only thing of value is what ever they’re ‘’feeling’’. And while they love to talk ‘’nuance’’ , in our parents day ‘’nuance’’ was called ‘’malarkey’’, or as we know it today as ‘’bs’’. As far as Christianity, liberals hate it because it works to restrain our baser impulses(remember the liberal mantra ‘’if it feels good, do it’’) and also because it reminds we imperfect mortals that there is a higher, more perfect authority than we and some day we will have to atone for our actions(and our ‘’feelings’’.)
I love that line, “I am a teacher.”
Just follow the posts on the government’s godless and socialist-entitlement K-12 schools. They are filled with name calling, personal attacks, and changing the subject. It is amazing how well they can avoid addressing the topic.
You mean it spreads like a decease, in this case somewhat akin to a computer virus.
The unfortunate part is we can’t easily quarantining theses people so that they can destroy themselves without hurting EVERYone else.
That is the real problem we got to figure out how to solve. giving & confining leftist to their own “Sand box”.
