Liberals never argue with one another over substance; their only dispute is how to prevent the public from figuring out what they really believe. Meanwhile, it is a source of constant alarm to conservatives that the public will not understand what they really believe. – Ann Coulter
If you listen to liberals, you’d believe that conservatives are hateful, racist, cruel, selfish dishonest, mean-spirited fascists while liberals are compassionate, caring, open-minded, honest and giving saints who want the best for everyone.
If that’s true, then why is it that liberals have to incessantly lie about what they’re doing, what’s happening in the world and also lie about conservatives?
For example, take this latest flap about Indiana passing a religious freedom law that prevents Christians from getting run out of business if they refuse to participate in gay weddings. The law should be unnecessary given that the First Amendment already “prohibits the making of any law…impeding the free exercise of religion,” but getting beyond that, there are similar laws in 20 states. Even Bill Clinton and Barack Obama have signed onto similar laws. Yet, you have liberals claiming that discrimination against gays will be rampant and even that black Americans will be turned away from stores for religious reasons because of the law. Of course, that’s not happening in any of the states with similar laws and it won’t happen in Indiana either.
Remember when the Trayvon Martin shooting hit the news? Most people thought a 12 year old kid was attacked by an adult who had uttered racial slurs about him and then shot him to death for no good reason. Whatever you may think of the case, there was a court case and we found out that wasn’t what happened. Trayvon Martin was a 17 year old football player; Zimmerman didn’t make any racist reference to him. Martin attacked Zimmerman and was physically beating him when he was shot.
If liberals are the good guys, why do they lie about cases like this one?
You could ask the same question about the Mike Brown shooting. At first we heard that Mike Brown was just an innocent kid who was attacked by an officer and then shot to death while he had his hands up and was pleading with the officer not to shoot.
Yet, what did we find out? Mike Brown had just robbed a convenience store; the officer thought he was a suspect. Brown attacked the officer and tried to take his weapon, then was shot running at the cop while ignoring his orders to stop
If liberals are the good guys, why did they lie about this case? There were businesses burned to the ground. The town of Ferguson, Missouri has been economically decimated and police officers have been KILLED because of the tensions created by this case. If liberals are the good guys, why haven’t they apologized for the lies that were told? Why haven’t they taken any responsibility for the lives they destroyed?
How about “rape culture?” We hear about that incessantly and the statistic that’s quoted over and over and over again is 1 in 5 college women are sexually assaulted. Even Barack Obama and Joe Biden have used this statistic. There’s one problem: That statistic comes from a Campus Sexual Assault Study that has been proven wrong. Although there is a hot debate about what the real numbers are, most people agree they’re probably much closer to a still too high 1-in-50.
If liberals are the good guys, why do they have to lie about this? Rape is as universally condemned as anything can be in the United States; so why not work with everyone else to fight it instead of lying about it?
Then there’s Obamacare.
No piece of legislation in modern history has been sold with so many willful lies about what it would do. Obama told people they could keep their doctors, keep their health care plans and that Obamacare would save the average family $2500 a year.
None of that turned out to be true.
If liberals are the good guys, why did they have to lie to the American people about Obamacare? If liberals are good people, why aren’t they apologizing for the lies they told?
Of course, we could go on and on with these examples because this has become the standard modus operandi of liberalism.
1) Lie about your opponents. Lie about what happened. Lie about what you want to do.
2) Deny that you lied. Smear your enemies for accusing you of lying. Count on your fellow liberals in the mainstream media to turn a blind eye.
3) When you get caught lying, shrug your shoulders and say, “So what?”
If you’re a liar, maybe you’re actually not such a great person. If you feel like you need to lie in order to get people to adopt your ideas, maybe they’re not such great ideas. If you have to lie about your “evil” enemies to get people to dislike them, then maybe YOU’RE THE ONE WHO’S THE BAD GUY.
