Just the Facts, Ma'am: A Compendium of Liberal Fiction

A collection of our liberal friends' finest whoppers.


Thread Rules


* Liberals are welcome as long as they are paper trained. They will not be excluded (except as snottiness on their part requires) so they can provide yet more amusement by attempting to rebut the rebuttals.


* Intentional disruption & trolls will be swiftly shown the door.


* Personal attacks, name calling, insults, vulgarity, etc., directed at anyone will be dealt with harshly. Yes you can be civil & still point out harsh yet reality based truths (the keys are frequency of use & accuracy). I.E., when someone has repeatedly lied or asserts discredited propaganda as fact, etc., I do allow appropriate descriptors to be used only when it can be clearly substantiated. Do not use those descriptors as an excuse to attack or marginalize.


* If you post outside material include a link to it. As the thread title states, "Just the Facts, Ma'am: A Compendium of Liberal Fiction". That means you need to provide accurate information from credible sources with working links. If not don't bother bringing it here.


* And no conspiracy theories!

Dr. Sanity's blog entry (linked below) comes closest to describing the near complete detachment from reality our liberal peers have become. Here is a sample of that entry (Hat tip to Brumar89 for bringing it to our attention):

    "THE MYTHS THAT FUEL THE LEFT'S DENIAL"
    The essence of psychological denial is a refusal to look at
or acknowledge reality....
    Anna Freud once wrote that the ego of a child in denial
"refuses to become aware of some disagreeable reality....
It turns its back on it, and in imagination reverses the
unwelcome facts."
    The essence of psychological denial is a refusal to look at
or acknowledge reality.
    Fortunately, reality exists outside of one's head and is 
objective and verifiable. It is not altered by whim,
desire, lies or myth....
    Psychological denial and the avoidance of an unpleasant 
reality are certainly not confined to one side of the
political spectrum or the other. But what I find endlessly
fascinating is how the political left has created and
fully integrated specific ideological tools that
facilitate ongoing psychological denial....
    The political left has been utilizing the same 
psychological strategies inherent in the paranoid style
since the end of the cold war and the 20th century....
    This is what makes it so frustrating to debate or argue 
with today's typical postmodern leftist....
    [T]heir myths have become inextricably entwined and 
inseparable from their most sacred ideological beliefs.
These are the myths that are the cornerstone of their
faith in the evil of George Bush, Republicans and America.
    To acknowledge even the slightest possibility that these 
keystones of their religious political faith are warped
would threaten their entire ideology--and thus, their
image of themselves....
    For 5 years now, America has had to listen to the 
Democrats' and the left's constant carping; we have had to
withstand their contempt for American values and our
military had to bear the brunt of their incoherent rage
and careless enabling of the enemy we fight. We have
listened to the endless repetition of their mantras and
slogans; the unrivaled self-righteousness of their
superior intellects; and seen firsthand the intensity of
the hatred that motivates them.
    In all that time there have been very very few able to 
summon up an iota of insight; or a moment of self-
reflection about their own [calumnious, treacherous &
irresponsible] behavior....
    Don't dare question their patriotism, they scream. But 
look at their behavior....
    One of the most serious psychological challenges that any 
human being must face is to face reality, particularly
when the consequences of confronting truth are personally
unpleasant and very painful. That is exactly what
psychological denial seeks to avoid doing.
    For the Democrats and their increasingly histrionic 
leftist base, denial--not America-- has been their country
of residence since September 11, 2001. Generally, it has
been a safe and happy place for them to be; because as
long as they can hate and vilify George Bush, Dick Cheney,
Condi Rice and all those evil Republicans and Lieberman
Democrats out there; and as long as they can pretend that
the objects of their hate are the real cause of any
problem; then they don't have to deal with the external
reality of Islamofascist terror, or face the truth about
their own unacknowledged and pathological internal
reality. They can continue to cling to the holy, neo
socialist faith, newly risen from the ashes of the 20th
century; and delude themselves into thinking that they are
wonderful, caring, loving and reality-based people....
    Klavan comments, "...we can't bring ourselves to 
fictionalize the larger idea: Islamo-fascism is an evil
and American liberty a good. But somehow today's Democrats
and the political left has no difficulty in fictionalizing
the reverse."
    Let's face it, the myths that fuel the left's denial are 
designed to make sure that they--not America--come out the
winners. >>

Conservatives however, seem to be more informed and more broadly interested in news events than liberals, according to this poll.



"Bush lied" + "no WMD's" + "removing Saddam was wrong" or "illegal" all thoroughly debunked here
