Hawkins: 15 Lies Of Liberalism

Posted on | January 27, 2013 | 4 Comments

A great article by John Hawkins:

9) …liberals want unity and bipartisanship, which they apparently believe they can accomplish by spewing pure hatred and smearing, demonizing, threatening, and lying about anyone who disagrees with them.

10) …it’s going to deliver equality of outcomes for everyone, which is true, if by “delivering equality of outcomes” you mean “make everyone poorer.”

11) …it cares about women — unless they’re conservative women, in which case liberals will insult them in the vilest of terms, attack their children, call them whores and laugh and hoot at the most grotesque sexist attacks against them. Every last insult ever hurled at someone like Sandra Fluke probably wouldn’t amount to what women like Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Michelle Malkin, and Ann Coulter put up with on any given week with the full support of the same liberals who run off at the mouth about a “war on women.”

I had sent Hawkins a Tweet linking Al Gore’s wonderful, (emphasis mine):

Their most consistent theme is to label as “socialist” any proposal to reform exploitive behavior in the marketplace.

From the standpoint of governance, what is at stake is our ability to use the rule of law as an instrument of human redemption. After all has been said and so little done, the truth about the climate crisis — inconvenient as ever — must still be faced.

That still remains the absolute dumbest thing I’ve ever seen from a public figure.

    AlGore’s statement about using government as an instrument of human redemption put me in mind of Kevin Miller’s book, which I described and linked (videos, too) here:

    Algore: …From the standpoint of governance, what is at stake is our ability to use the rule of law as an instrument of human redemption….

    That is, indeed, Smitty, one of the most ignorant statements, but it does comre from one of the biggest practioners of rank stupidity in America.

    The worst part is the contradiction within that single sentence: for there to be a Rule Of Law, what is required that their be stability in the law and that human emotion [eg: 'redemption'] not be the motivating reason behind the Law.

    You beat me. However, I can still say “Rich Lowry is a Coward” and know you didn’t beat me to that in this thread.

    Cares about women? On political websites I’ve seen posters

    tell conservative women that as mothers they threaten to cut their own sons’ penises off, that the liberal hope their son becomes a male prostitute, is on methadone and/or dies in agony in front of them.
