The Only Thing Liberals Understand: ‘It Could Happen to Me, Too!’
“Left-wing zealots have often been prepared to ride roughshod over due process and basic considerations of fairness when they think they can get away with it. For them the ends always seem to justify the means. That is precisely how their predecessors came to create the gulag.” – Margaret Thatcher
“So much of left-wing thought is a kind of playing with fire by people who don’t even know that fire is hot.” -- George Orwell
I’ve been around politics for almost two decades now and one thing I have learned about liberals in politics is that they do not care about good or bad or right and wrong when it comes to people who don’t share their beliefs.
They universally feel comfortable lying about conservatives. They believe conservatives are evil and they diligently refuse to consider any explanation for beliefs on the Right that don’t support that premise. They put their liberalism above everything, including God.
Now, you may say, “My cousin is not like this,” or, “I know a great liberal I’ve been friends with since I was 12. He doesn’t think like this.” I acknowledge the truth of what you’re saying. Many liberals out in the wild are good and decent people, but that’s because liberalism is like a virus. In the early stages, you may be able to power your way through it. But the deeper you get into it and the more important it becomes to you, the more it infects your personality and turns your soul ugly.
Unless they’re talking up a pet “conservative” like John McCain, David Frum, David Brooks, etc., whose job is to tell liberals everything they think about conservatives is true, they see all conservatives as exactly the same. Evil. It doesn’t matter if you voted for Trump or not. It doesn’t matter how thoroughly you explain your positions. It doesn’t matter if you spent the summer volunteering at a homeless shelter. You are evil/racist/sexist, you hate poor people, and you’re a Nazi.
There is no crime that can be committed by a “good liberal” in the eyes of political liberals besides making liberals look bad in the eyes of the general public. Because of this, every once in a while an Anthony Weiner, Kathy Griffin, or Harvey Weinstein will be thrown over the side where they’ll be left for good unless they become somehow useful to liberals again, in which case they will immediately be embraced. If you’re important enough, like Bill Clinton or Ted Kennedy, you won’t be thrown over the side, no matter what. If George Soros had done exactly the same things as Harvey Weinstein, all we’d hear today would be that all the women who accuse him are lying whores, while feminist groups invite Soros to face-saving fundraising dinners.
