I'll say it again. No liberal position can stand the test of reason.
I'd love to be proven wrong, but I won't be. That's because even if there is some rationale behind something liberals believe, there are no liberals capable of making the case. They've been indoctrinated, their education system has failed them, and now they have a huge base that, out of blind trust and acceptance, and their inability to analyze for themselves believes what their leaders advance .
You saw it right here over the past few days. Someone makes a statement or a charge, and that's good enough. I guess when they do that where they come from, everyone nods their heads in agreement and moves on – to the next tautology.
Sure I despise them as soon as I recognize what's happening, but I'm tempered by the fact that it's hardly their own individual faults. Of course, that doesn't make them any less dangerous.
Thus the dilemma. They are no longer educable if indeed they ever were, and because so many agree with them, they aren't forced to realize how stupid they are, and in fact, they are even emboldened to think they actually know something and that their arguments are rooted in some truth and logic.
But they never are.
They don't want to prevail through reason or justice, they just wnat to prevail by any means possible. How else can you explain the hysteria over Valerie Plame, for example, and the lack of any perceptibel reaction to the New York Times treasonous disclosures – and now ABC's?
And it's always the same, just different faces – or UIDs as the case may be.
So I try to engage them, to get them to focus. I know that if I'm successful – as I was on one occasion years ago, they will founder immediately once they get past their premise, but it's the rare case who can or will even get that far.
So it's "Bush lied!" How? "Because there were no WMDs." So that means he lied how? "Because he knew there weren't any." And you know this how? "Because they didn't find any."
What do you do now? I mean, that's where I just start insulting them, but what do you do, try to show them the error of their ways? Good luck.
Last night, on borderline idiot, Glenn Beck's show, he was lamenting the fact that we can't have a dialogue between the left and the right. Then he cited some of the many starting points of liberals and quickly arrived at the realization that they "got a way of starting conversation that ends conversation," as Paul Newman said in Harper.
They start with something they believe is irrefutable, and they put it in the form of a charge instead of a question. And that's why I start with the insults early and often now.
I know from experience where it's going to lead, and I'd rather cut to the chase. Sure I risk putting off decent and sincere people like Aput, but he's young, and he'll have to learn for himself. And if I lose him, Perhaps someday he'll say, "Damn, now I understand, Ted," or however Muslims say that – "Shazaam," maybe? Or is that Gomer Pyle?
Anyway, that one idiot here who shall remain nameless, and not just because he's stupid, but because his username is also stupid, actually got my hopes up when he cited a conservative and provided a link in his argument that terrorist sanctuaries were going to be harder to destroy than we might imagine.
OK, I'll buy that, especially since nothing has been easy. but then I apparently did something he wasn't used to – I challenged him to, if not provide a solution, at least to detail a course of action in light of the information he provided.
I purposely stated the absurd with full knowledge that it was likely his actual position – that because these sanctuaries are difficult to locate and difficult to put out of commission, his argument is that we should just call the whole thing off.
It's times like that you stifle the feeling that you hope the next attack on our soil is in his backyard. I mean it would take that to have him get the message, wouldn't it?
Apparently not. Three thousand dead in our front yard wasn't enough.
So by all means, you continue to deal with liberals as you see fit – and I'll continue to make this place unsafe for them at any speed.
