How Liberals Use Compassion to Hurt People

How Liberals Use Compassion to Hurt People

My latest Townhall column is called, “How Liberals Use Compassion to Hurt People.” Here’s an excerpt from the column.

Of course, most conservatives are well aware of the damage liberals do to minorities with their supposed compassion. Liberal “compassion” toward minorities consists of treating them like incompetents who can’t do anything for themselves, fish-hooking them through the jaw with government assistance, and encouraging them to nurse grievances and feel like victims.

That is not compassionate and, as I note in my new book, “101 Things All Young Adults Should Know,” it doesn’t make anyone’s life better over the long haul.

Oh, but what about the government? Do you really want its help? Do you want to feel all those eyes burning into your back when you whip out those food stamps? Do you want to live in crummy government housing?

Do you want to jump through whatever hoops some dead-eyed bureaucrat comes up with so you can get just enough help to stay poor and miserable? Is that the sort of person you admire? Is that the one you grew up wanting to be? You should want more out of life than what the government is willing to give to you in return for your pride.

What’s more compassionate? Encouraging and helping people to pull themselves up by their own bootstraps, or trapping them in poverty, anger and misery long-term?

Once again, you can read it all here.
