I have been talking to more liberals than ever before since Trump. I can’t help it. They jump out of the woodwork at you to tell you how wrong you are.
It seems to me the real problem is, liberals are very damaged people. So damaged, they cannot expend any time to research ANYTHING that other people might be right on - if an issue ticks their emotions. It usually starts out from something in their past - a family thing. They come from a broken family or out of a bad divorce and never had a dad at home. That is why I think so many leftists are screaming white women. They are still acting out their traumas in life.
They cannot argue with you rationally. They cannot search out issues based on facts. They only look for “facts” that confirm their boo-boos. This is why they will say to you, flat out, almost every time, “I only read the NYT, CNN, NBC” etc. They will NEVER deviate and read outside to really try to understand a situation, like conservatives do. They can’t risk it.
If the facts start to confirm they are wrong, and their worldview starts to slip, the namecalling and hysteria starts. Because they really ARE too fragile, emotionally, to deal with a world where it doesn’t work the way they envision. If they scream, it will all go away. They are still three years old, politically. They seek out only their own type company to confirm their bias, and others mustn’t be allowed to even speak.
As a liberal said to me this weekend, “You have an answer for everything”. And the things he was saying to me were such propaganda - so easily debunked - things we all know were complete media lies. He really just didn’t want to know the truth. He wants his worldview. He doesn’t care it is all a lie, because he is too weak to deal with truth. And BTW, I am completely convinced that is why the pot issue is so important - they must be medicated to deal with their anxiety, to make all their lies work for them.
All humans are damaged.
But liberals celebrate that damage as victims of life instead of realizing that the objective is to overcome it and thereby develop a kind of maturity (i.e. wisdom) as result.
Liberals (a misnomer BTW) don't want to grow up. They are developmentally challenged by choice.
The reason liberalism cannot win is that life/reality itself is against it...and liberals are against life/reality.
