Ever try to reason with a Progressive/Liberal (P/L), or is it Liberal/Progressive? If you have, please reread the title if this article by Mark Twain, take two aspirin, and go to bed, NOW!
The first thing a P/L will do is start quoting talking points taken from Move-On.Org or another Soros website. Then if you rebut their point, they will back up their assertions using another left-wing website as a source. Not too dissimilar to CNN! Or if things get really dicey, they will quote their oracle of truth, http://www.Snopes.com! Another “fact checker” controlled by a P/L.
Then, if all of that fails to win you over, they invoke the “ist”, “ism” or “phobe” monikers on you. You become a racist, sexist, misogynist, homophobe, xenophobic, or say you engage in sexism, racism, or you are a racistismphobe! Sounds like a Nancy Pelosi-ism!
I think I am going to make a Tee-Shirt with the word, STUPIDPHOBE written on it. (If I really want to raise their blood pressure, I will put #MAGA on the shirt as well!) Whenever a P/L attempts to dissuade my views or attacks my moral compass, I will merely point to my Tee-Shirt and say Bless You!
Invoking God is another tactic of a P/L. Now this is really rich as they are pro-death baby killers who think Gosnell was just eccentric and that Margaret Sanger really did not believe in eugenics and that the culling out of non-whites was not really in her writings. The P/L will invoke God to sell their illogical views on unlimited and unrestrained immigration, wealth redistribution as being charity, and abortion as being compassionate.
Finding truth today is elusive at best and requires a lot of due diligence to sort the wheat from the chaff. First of all, seldom believe stories based on a “reliable source” or an unnamed spokesperson for …, etc. If someone is not willing to put their name on the line then the line should not be taken seriously. Secondly, when it comes to President Trump, if the words did not come from his mouth, his twitter account, or from Kellyanne Conway, then they are probably not true. Whether you like the President or not, he is not bashful and seldom filters his words, spoken or written. Kellyanne is one of the closest allies he has, other than family, and is privy to the goings-on of the inner sanctum of this administration. Thirdly, if you see more than one network opining on a point using exactly the same phraseology, turn off your TV. These are P/L talking points and most likely Fake or contrived “news”.
Finally, many of you jump the gun when the Speaker, the Senate Majority Leader, or another Republican or RINO says something stupid like demeaning President Trump or one of his actions. Let me leave you with a final Mark Twain quote to remember when this occurs:
“Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.” –Mark Twain
