This post is dedicated to the "Tolerant" unselfaware liberal jackass who deleted my comments and blocked me today.
Liberalism is like a restaurant with ugly decor, terrible food,
overflowing toilets and roaches scurrying across the floor -- that stays
packed every night. Sure, liberals may be sanctimonious, mean spirited
and advocate policies that don't work, but you can't help but admire the
excellence of their public relations network. They can laud themselves
for courage because they take a stand everyone they know agrees with,
pat themselves on the back for their compassion as they maliciously
insult someone that disagrees with them and congratulate themselves for
their charitable behavior as they give other people's money away.
Liberal mythology is one thing, but what it actually looks like is a
different beast entirely.
1) Liberals love science: As Ann Coulter says, "Liberals use
the word science exactly as they use the word constitutional. Both words
are nothing more or less than a general statement of liberal approval,
having nothing to do with either science or the Constitution." The
liberal commitment to science consists entirely of talking about how
important science is when they believe they can use it to further the
liberal agenda. On the other hand, when
science shows that adult stem cells actually work better than embryonic
stem cells, millions in Africa have died because liberals needlessly
insisted on banning DDT or the evidence shows AIDS is never going to
take off in Western, non-drug using heterosexuals, liberals have about as much interest in science as they do in supporting the troops.
2) Liberals care about education: If you define "education" as
doing as much as humanly possible to toss plums to the teachers’ unions
who help fund and elect Democrats, liberals love education. Alternately,
if you define education as the rest of us do, making sure our kids
learn as much as possible and are prepared for the working world,
liberals don't care about education at all. They fight merit pay, oppose
firing bad teachers and try to kill even effective school choice
programs. Any time there's a divergence between what's best for the
teachers’ unions and what's best for the kids, the kids ALWAYS lose with
3) Liberals are tolerant: In a very real sense, liberals don't
understand tolerance. To them, tolerance is promoting whatever position
they happen to hold while excluding all competing views. So, if a
conservative speaker shows up on a college campus, liberals try to shout
him down. Liberals have tried to censor conservative talk show hosts
with an Orwellian "Fairness Act." They work tirelessly to try to silence
Fox News, which is the one center right network up against ABC, NBC,
CBS, CNN and MSNBC. They block professors for their conservative views,
blacklist conservative actors and lock conservatives out of almost every
major newspaper in America. That's not open-minded; it's a level of
dogmatic intolerance that could rival the most radical cult.
4) Liberals don't moralize: Liberals believe in allowing children
to have abortions over the protests of their parents, they want to
force churches to perform gay weddings that violate their Christian
beliefs and they demand that the Catholic Church provide abortion and
birth control over its strenuous moral objections, but then they turn
around and deny that they're moralizing. Getting beyond that, they couch
their arguments about tax rates, government programs and economics in
distinctly moral terms. After all, what is the term "fair share" if not
an appeal to morals? If liberals are going to continue to pretend that
they don't moralize, at least they should admit that they’re morally
inferior to conservatives.
5) Liberals love the poor: For both philosophical and practical
reasons, conservatives believe in helping the poor escape poverty. We
agree wholeheartedly with Ben Franklin's words of wisdom,
"I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in
opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is
not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it.
In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries,
that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they
provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the
contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves,
and became richer."
On the other hand, liberals "love" the poor like a cat loves mice. The
cat gets fat off the mice and liberals get elected off of sadistically
keeping as many Americans mired in poverty as they can. Then, they can
give the poor just enough money to get by on while railing against those
mean old conservatives who're claiming the destitute can have better
lives when any "compassionate" person would realize food stamps and
welfare are the best most of these people can ever do. That's not love;
that's a gang of pushers trying to hook as many customers as possible.
