The Leftist War on Reality
Want to solve immigrant crime?
Viola! It is no longer a measurable problem.
How should we solve obesity?
Common sense marketing and encouraging healthy behavior?
Nah, just follow these steps:
- Destroy all weighing scales possible (1)
- Pretend weight doesn’t have any effect on health (1)
- Blame weight gain on everything else, such as “powerful hunger hormones” or ‘gut bacteria’ (1)
- Finally, deny it’s a problem at all (1)
Claim to be Compassionate
But actually practice idiot compassion. (1)
How do we solve moral decline?
How should we handle when people disagree with us?
How should we articulate arguments to win debates against opposing views?
Call them one of the following:
How do we fight fascists?
Claim to support diversity
How do we help the poor?
That will do it.
Call soldiers “baby killers”
But yet support tax-payer funded abortion. (1)
Claim to be against tyrants
Many of these examples (and similar ones) aren’t new.
But, even after all this time the leftist war on reality continues.
It should be no surprise to most. The party landscape has been increasingly polarizing these past few years.
It’s driving both parties further on the political spectrum from the center. But mostly the left.
These kind of beliefs are hard to debate in person.
When the person you’re speaking with automatically assumes you’re a racist-homophobic-bigot, it practically shuts down any discussion.
The only way forward is to start calling out these types of attacks. Don’t debate your character, debate the point.
Think of it like this: If you say the sky is blue and someone says you’re a bigot because of that, does that make the sky not blue? No, of course not. But it won’t stop a leftist from believing it.
The left can push reality to the side all they want, but it doesn’t make it any less true.
