"We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive." — C.S. Lewis
Kurt Schlichter provides brief rebuttals to some of the more asinine liberal “arguments” (which he correctly refers to as “cheats”):
The Cheat: “Jesusplain Those Rubes!”
When in doubt, play the messiah card! It’s always a pleasure to have some atheist hipster explain to you how Christ was a socialist SJW who was ultra-open-minded about what bathroom people should use and who demands you give the government money so it can hand your cash over to deadbeats. I often wonder if this gambit ever works, if anyone ever thinks, “Gosh, I guess if @ImpeachTrumpHillarysHot says my Savior hates AR15s, then I better disarm myself in the face of liberal-enabled crime and liberal-supported tyranny.”
How to Beat It: You could explain the whole Christianity thing, but it’s easier to just tell the liberals to go pound sand.
((Preferably, try to explain the faith first, but whenever it becomes clear they’re only interested in twisting scripture to support their agenda, the “pound sand” option is the conclusion. After all, even Jesus told His disciples to shake the dust off their sandals from towns that would not listen to them. — Jemison))
The Cheat: “We are better than that!”
They like to try to weaponize our morality against us, which is hilarious since they hate morality almost as much as they hate us. They create some sort of moral test, usually out of thin air, and then announce you have failed it. One of the best was the recent “Splitting up families of undocumented workers is not who we are!” Except it is who we are. We split up the families of criminals all the time and we should – there’s no nursery in San Quentin for a reason.
What they want to do is well up those tears in your eyes so you don’t clearly see the truth – the problem is not the consequence of illegal aliens breaking into our country. The problem is the illegal aliens breaking into our country. The problem is always the misbehavior we are calling out, not the fact we are calling it out.
How to Beat It: Refuse to play this human shield game and tell the liberals to go pound sand.
Read the rest here. It’s time to stop acting as if these “arguments” have any merit other than emotional sensationalism.
And that’s just in three states. Who knows how much educational disruption is going on today? It wouldn’t be surprising to find that those few who stay on the job used the class time for indoctrination.
Modern liberalism is the politics of expedience and power, not principle. If it weren’t for double standards, they’d have no standards at all.
It’s a shame the governors of affected states won’t do as Ronald Reagan did with striking air traffic controllers. Firing the absent teachers and replacing them might actually DO something “for the children.”
A smattering of things I’ve noticed around the web in recent days:
– What would YOU do if the power went off for days… or weeks or more? It’s a question worth seriously considering, because it seems other folks are…
– The NAACP points out there’s no law, like, requiring the Massachusetts House of Representatives to expel a (liberal) member just because of a li’l thing like being convicted of sexual assault. (But remember, it’s the conservatives who are waging a so-called “War on Women…”)
– New dictionary entry: “Hypocrite – /ˈhipəˌkrit/ – one who campaigns to infringe the Second Amendment rights of others by campaigning for a law prohibiting even legal concealed carry firearms on school grounds… and then goes and does it himself. See also: Dwayne ‘Honest Mistake’ Ferguson”
