Name that liberal!
All right, NBC Nooze has gone on record saying heterosexuality is bad and women should abandon it. This is a profoundly stupid thing to say. If it weren’t so gigantically stupid, we might also perceive that it’s an evil thing to say.
So why write about it? After all, it’s not like I have to convince most of my blog audience that off-the-wall leftism is totally without merit. Still, I do have a few reasons for writing about it.
For one thing, liberals used to be a great deal more circumspect and subtle in what they said, and in the things that they proposed as policy–and they aren’t anymore. No matter how ridiculous it is, they just come right out and say it. Open borders, Green New Deal, jail for climate change deniers–they aren’t even trying to to appear reasonable.
Has God simply laid on them a delusion that will destroy the Democrat Party in the next election? Or have they–for some reason we don’t know about, but which really ought to scare us but good–become so confident of their future success that they have lost any need they ever felt to disguise their plans behind a mask of moderation? What would make them so confident that they don’t even try to fool us anymore?
I think we really need to find the answer to that question.
For another thing: I wonder how many people who vote for Democrats, or say, “Yeah, sure, I like socialism!” have actually done any thinking, at all, about what those things mean. Do they truly understand what happens under socialism, or do they think it’s just a festival of freebies for lazy and immoral nitwits? To what degree do they understand what they are aiding and abetting?
So I write in hopes that I might somehow make a dent in their world-view, however rare an event that might prove to be. Somewhere there must be someone who hears the truth, the light bulb turns itself on with a flash, and he says, “Gee, I didn’t know that!” And having heard the truth, he changes his mind and turns away from error…
I can dream, can’t I?
