5 Myths Liberals Have Created About Themselves (Part 2)


My latest Townhall column is called, 5 Myths Liberals Have Created About Themselves (Part 2). Here’s an excerpt from the column.

Greek mythology, with its tales of Zeus, Apollo and Hera doesn’t have a thing on the mythology that liberals have created around themselves. There’s Bubba, the President who can feel your pain, BO the leader who has the ability to never be blamed for anything and, of course, the wronged woman Fluke who the gods granted free birth control for the rest of her life for not being allowed to speak to a committee…or something. Still, as you’re about to see, the real face of liberalism looks a lot more like Medusa than Aphrodite.

1) Liberals are pro-capitalism: Many liberals actually get offended if you call them socialists or worse yet, communists. This is like a wife-beater getting angry when you suggest that he doesn’t love his wife. At a minimum, he doesn’t love her enough not to smack her in the mouth just as liberals don’t love capitalism enough to avoid undermining it at every opportunity. If you want to end inequality, tax the rich into the ground, create a massive government and have a social safety net the size of a small planet, you’re not a capitalist. Sure, liberals may love that capitalist lifestyle, but they believe they can have that Soviet “economic equality” too, while forgetting that it always eventually comes with ugly concrete apartments and breadlines.

Once again, you can read it all here.
