There is an old joke that you can always tell when a liberal is lying because their lips will be moving. I have often thought there is money to be made by creating a Liberal Liars trivia game. Something along the lines of Jeopardy! or Name That Tune. So many great liberal lies have been discovered and exposed that it would be hard to choose which ones to include.
Remember this one? “I did not have sex with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky.” I can still see his finger wagging.
Or, how about Wendy Davis, otherwise known as Abortion Barbie? Her ‘biography’ is an exercise in selective amnesia and history revised.
And you’ve probably heard about the latest NAACP debacle with a white woman (no kidding!) serving as the Spokane Washington chapter president while pretending to be black. She was outed by her own parents.
It is a well known tendency of liberals to shade, skew, hide, and distort the facts in order to fit their narrative and agenda. Liberals believe the ends always justify almost any means. Liberals can not approach an issue rationally and objectively because they believe in no absolute truths. Everything is relative, and boils down to race, gender, or class, all viewed through the feelings of the participants (which is the only legitimate way to analyze anything, right?).
Liberals know that they can not win people to their side by being truthful, so they lie.
Continuously. Instinctively. Pathologically.
Proof, Jenerik! Where is your proof?
Oh, where to begin? This is what’s known as a target rich environment. I’ll just provide a few highlights.
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, the lying about abortion began. Without legal abortions, women would be forced in “back alley” or “coat hanger” abortions. Legalization would make abortion safe, legal and rare. The truth is that abortions were already safe in 1973, when Roe v. Wade was decided. And, abortion (with restrictions) was becoming legal in many states. The lie liberals tell is exposed for what it is when we consider that the number of annual US abortions rose from about 500,000 in 1973 to a peak of over 1.6 million in 1990, according to the Guttmacher Institute. The lie is further exposed by the scorched earth strategies abortion proponents use against any attempt to restrict abortion. “Safe, legal and rare” has become “on demand, at any time, for any reason”.
In the 1990s, the lying about global warming began and is still going strong. Do a Google search on Michael Mann or Hockey Stick. The earth has not warmed in 20 years despite rising C02 levels. Scientists can’t explain it but man-made global warming is now the biggest threat to national security, according to Obama. I recently had an argument with an anti-coal, green energy lobbying group about the propaganda value of including pictures of billowing smokestacks in their literature. They felt it was ok to lie about smokestack emissions from coal-fired power plants because of climate change. People would ‘just know’ they were being sensational.
There have been food safety scares (Alar), pesticide paranoia (deet), and staged vehicle safety commercials. Dan Rather’s fake but accurate documents trotted out to smear George W. Bush.
Race hustlers Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have spawned many imitators, and given us the spectacles of Tawana Brawley, the Duke lacrosse players scandal and the false narrative of Ferguson. Rolling Stone, the New York times and other liberal media outlets routinely report fictional events and outright lies as truth. All in an attempt to destroy political opponents.
Recently, the number of lies and their scope have been increasing.
- Islam is a religion of peace.
- Benghazi was because of a Youtube video.
- Obamacare – if you like your plan you can keep it.
- All disagreement with Obama is due to racism.
- Christians are not being persecuted in the Middle East.
- Poverty is a result of rich people’s greed.
- Gay people just wanted to be treated the same as straight people.
- Gay marriage will not impact straight marriages or religion or lead to polygamy, poly-amory or other ‘marriage’ or gender-bending definitions. However, if you don’t bow down before the LGBTQxyzeieio agenda, you will lose your job, your business, your reputation, get branded a bigot and be forced into silence for fear of going to jail for hate speech.
Now comes the admission that a recent FBI “study” on guns and mass murder faked some data to support the authors’ conclusions while excluding actual data that conflicted with their personal positions. This Wall Street Journal story, Obama’s Gun-Control Misfire, provides a good overview. The authors offered a lengthy rebuttal to their critics, along with a confession buried at then end – “because official data did not contain the information we needed, we had to develop our own.” In other words, the data didn’t match their preconceptions so they made up new data.
GIGO. The world is vast and complex. We can not hope to know everything about everything. We must rely on experts and others to provide information and make recommendations on how society can solve its problems. Achieving stability within society, civilized society, is very nearly impossible when many liberals are actively and maliciously hiding the truth or doing it serious injury. They do it intentionally, to cause division and disruption, and to gain power over us. Which might make for great comedy if the stakes weren’t so high.
The truth may be hard to take sometimes, but it will always lead to freedom.
While sometimes inconvenient, and not necessarily pretty, Incorrectly Political will deliver the truth. Unvarnished and uncensored. If you don’t believe it, read my lips! 😉
