You Might Be A Liberal

| 7 Comments

There's an old gag in engineering where you have a flow chart describing all the inputs pointing to a box labeled "something magical happens" which then leads to the desired output. The modern Progressive orthodoxy is shot through with some version of this, usually dressed up with "studies" that read like astrological charts.

How do you find these posts?

Magic?

The ezman is right about how "progressives" think and talk. The deceptive double-speak utopian language has not changed since the Bolos took over in Russia in 1917. Only some of the terminology and subject matter reflects modern situations.

I agree with Dave in Mississauga, where do you find these gems?

"Magic Dirt Theory claims that the soil alters behavior. Place a bunch of Bantus in Paris and they magically transform into Frenchmen."

It does seem to work in reverse.
"An alarming number of young men and women are leaving France to start a family in Syria,"

Deb Matthews probably thinks along the lines of "Hey. If the taxpayers are dumb enough to hand us another majority, they're probably OK with relinquishing their refunds."

And she just might be right except for the fact that socialists are notorious for balking at using their own money for "worthy" causes.

I might add that the particular Wahhabist interpretation of Islam that drives the Islamic State is also based on a set of inputs (i.e., a showdown with the West) resulting in "something magical" happening which then leads to their desired output.

You might be a liberal if you have a abortion while wearing a SAVE THE REDWOODS T-Shirt You want all guns banned and LSD legalized,You gave $500 to Greenpeace to SAVE THE POLARBEARS You want parents arrested for Child Abuse for allowing them to eat a hamburger instead of a veggieburger. You think Obama is america's best presidents ever
