10 Liberal Clichés and What They Really Mean
Cliché [klee-shey, kli-] n. – a trite, stereotyped expression; a sentence or phrase, usually expressing a popular or common thought or idea, that has lost originality, ingenuity, and impact by long overuse.
1. The Constitution is a Living Document
This is used to rationalize ignoring the Constitution and imposing whatever Liberals want to on people. The Founding Fathers knew that as times changed there might arise a need to alter the Constitution, so they provided for Amendments. Amendments, alone are what make the US Constitutions “elastic” or “a living document”, but Liberals have long lost site of that, and have taken the term used to describe the “elasticity” provided by Amendments to also include judicial interpretation, or as we know it, Judicial activism.
2. Diversity is Strength
It’s very interesting that what Liberals today call “Diversity” bears a striking resemblance to what Democrats used to call “Segregation”. Liberals see “Diversity” as acknowledging difference to the point of creating walls, which isolate different groups. They rationalize it as good, by pretending that these walls allow the groups to better expose their strengths. Wow, that’s exactly what the segregationists of the 40s and 50s said, too. Conservatives on the other hand, acknowledge varying strengths, but see them as more efficiently used by using commonality among all people to strengthen societal unity and cohesion, not division.
3. Equal Protection
This canard is being used a lot today to rationalize all kinds of outrageous abuse. It works like this: A Liberal wants a special right for himself or some other group, but that right directly infringes on the rights of a group or groups the Liberals don’t like–then the “Constitution” demands the second group loses their rights in favor of the first group so that “equal protection” is achieved. Rights for the first groups are expanded to including pretty much anything and everything they want. Rights for the second groups are diminished to the point of non-existence. The result is what Liberals call “Equal Protection”. Your religious beliefs say that homosexuality is wrong? Doesn’t matter because the rights of homosexuals to force you to participate in the celebration of their chosen sexual positions trump your “so-called” freedom of religion (as if that’s even in the Constitution, anyway). See how that works?
4. The One Percent
Class warfare is one of the Liberal’s greatest weapons. It doesn’t matter that there are actually more 1%ers that are Democrats than are Republicans. It doesn’t matter that Liberal 1%ers donate more heavily than Republican or Libertarian (The Koch brothers are Libertarians) do. It’s about class envy. Hate those that have more than you do, so you will lend your societal proxy (the miniscule power the individual possesses that when combined with others become a powerful political force) to those 1%ers promising (but never delivering) punishment for the haves and bread and circuses for the have nots.
5. Trust Black Women
This shameless exploitation of minorities was invented when Liberals could no longer hide the ongoing genocide of Blacks via Planned Parenthood. It’s supposed to mean that even if Black women are flocking to abortion clinics to murder their babies at a rate that actually surpasses live births, we should shut up about it, and trust that they know what they are doing. What it really means is, “Hey, we’ve conned these people into thinking we are helping them by slowly eradicating them from the planet. So don’t interfere.”
