It is also an old Alinsky tactic. ‘Make them live up to their own impossible morals’ or some such stuff. what democrats never understand is that we don’t believe in perfection , but we try to live a moral life. Sometimes we fail but it doesn’t mean that we then toss all morality out the window (like the rats do...lol.)
The cardinal sin to liberals is...oddly enough..Hypocrisy.
Their defense against being accused of hypocrisy is a bizzare combination of Rousseauian Moral Relativism coupled with a strain of Orwellian Doublethink. They believe that all behaviors are matters of personal choice regardless of consequence, and one type of behavior is equally as valid as another.
To put it another way, they don’t have any values or standards. If you don’t have values or standards, you can never be called to be held to them, and can never be accused of Hypocrisy.
Most conservatives understand the Christian concept of hate the sin, love the sinner. We know that people are not pefect, but we do think that standards should be there as, at the very minimum, a goal to strive for. If you don’t reach those standards, you try to learn from the experience and learn to try again.
Liberals think that every kid is going to have sex no matter what is done or said, so there is no valid reason to discourage it. And if you can’t bring yourself to discourage it, then there is no reason you should make them suffer for doing something they can’t help doing anyway.
It just occurred to me that liberals might even go so far as to supply safe areas for kids to have sex, so they wouldn’t do it in the woods or in a dangerous building. Perhaps they already have, and I have simply not noticed.
