The Six Fatal Flaws of Contemporary Liberalism

John Hawkins lists six, and you could expand or contract this list if you chose. So as not to steal his thunder, I’m just going to highlight and comment on two of them.

1) You really didn’t learn everything you needed to know in kindergarten: Argue with leftists and you soon realize that they have neither learned to think much beyond simplistic slogans, nor have they matured beyond the egoism of a five-year old child.  “Torture is wrong!” they proclaim. “But is pouring water on a terrorist’s nose really torture?” you may ask. “And is there a moral difference between inflicting pain on a helpless person just for the sake of inflicting pain, and inflicting pain for the purpose of illiciting information that may save innocent lives?” At which point, they will ask for their milk and a rug to lie down on.

“Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.” — Benjamin Spock: The left has been raised on self-esteem and Hollywood movies. In the movies, the person who uses reason, and deliberation is either evil or wrong, and the person who acts on his emotions is always right. The left takes this to mean that only emotions are true and can be trusted. Obama and Carrie Prejean have exactly the same position on gay marriage, but Obama is right because they love him, and Prejean is wrong because they hate her. That’s what passes for logic on the left.

There are four more, but I’m not gonna spoil it.

  2. My particular favorites are “1) You really didn’t learn everything you needed to know in kindergarten:”

    and: “You know more than you think you do.”

    It is this sort of narcissistic stupidity that leads the leftist dirtballs who barely graduated from high school (Barbra Streisand comes to mind.) to castigate the perceived “stupidity” of a Yale Graduate president receiving daily intelligence briefings.

    No, your community college diploma does not stack up to a diploma from an Ivy League School with the strictest graduation requirements of all accredited universities.

    My mother (a liberal) asks me why I don’t apply the same reckoning to my own immolation of Obama’s “knowledge.” The answer is simple: Bush provided his transcripts. He provided his scores. Obama hasn’t even provided his damn BIRTH certificate.

    The only thing transparent about Obama is his transparent desire to undermine my country.
