Welcome to the newest edition of The Why. “Why do liberals lie?” you ask? Good question. Actually, it’s a loaded question but we generally don’t judge them, we just answer them. (Besides, it still beats answering the weird female hygiene questions that come in far too often to make us think anything other than moms don’t talk to their daughters anymore and/or they have no clue about how they ended up having daughters in the first place. In case you need to be reminded, ladies, y’all have your randy writer’s e-mail address, right?)
Don’t almost all politicians truly suck? There are those out there who are liberals solely because they consider it the lesser of two evils. Personally, you people who jump to blame all the world’s problems solely on the opposing party annoy the h*ll out of your independent author.
We, the people, the majority, vote these people into office. Why don’t point the finger at ourselves for buying into the bullsh*t? Why don’t we vote them out of office when they fail to do their jobs?
We have met the enemy and he is us. Still, this column is about finding answers for all of life’s mysteries so here we go. (Don’t sigh in relief GOP because you could be next!)
Our first Yahoo poster, “Badmofaux” says the question is based on a “faulty premise”. Again, we know it is one-sided but let’s try and find a reasonable response anyway. Another Yahoo Poster who couldn’t be identified thanks to a technical problem was much more detailed in his response.
He says “liberals just lie so much because they know the people they’re trying to persuade (likely democrat voters) are too stupid to realize what they’re saying.” He also believes it could be “like Goebbels said: ‘If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it’.”
He also notes that the liberal could be “based entirely on emotion. That is, they think liberalism is right because it makes them feel good so any means to bring about liberal policies is considered good regardless of what facts have to be twisted to support it.”
Yes, finding an expert on this subject was comparatively difficult. John Hawkins who contributes to the Townhall website has covered the subject in the recent past. He notes that liberals paint conservatives as “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. “
Hawkins believes liberals lie because it is their “standard modus operandi”. He also notes that liberals feel they “need to lie in order to get people to adopt (their) ideas.”
(So maybe liberals think everyone else needs to be treated like children? They invent fairy tales since the truth is too harsh?)
Finally, he states that not all liberals are really “such great” people.
Why do liberals lie? Now you know.
You ask the questions. We provide the answers.
