Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Libs purport to relish "fact-driven" debate

When I read the ludicrous quote from liberal Jonathan Chait in the New Republic, that non-liberals are averse to “fact-driven debate” (which implies that liberals engage it), I laughed so hard that I almost launched my Diet Wild Cherry Pepsi from my nostrils. Note to self: Don’t drink beverages while reading political commentary.

The column illustrates how conservative speakers have been assaulted by “fact-driven” leftists who “relished academic debates” while on college campuses. Uh-oh…wooks wike wittle Jeffey has been pissing Mummie and Daddie’s money away while off at the university! From Coulter:

Liberals enjoy claiming that they are intellectuals, thrilled to engage in a battle of wits. This, they believe, distinguishes them from conservatives, who are religious fanatics who react with impotent rage to opposing ideas. As one liberal, Jonathan Chait, put the cliche in the New Republic: Bush is an “instinctive anti-intellectual” and his administration hostile to “fact-driven debate.” In a favorable contrast, Clinton is “the former Rhodes scholar who relished academic debates.” Showing his usual reverence for fact-checking, the New York Times’ Paul Krugman says the Republican Party is “dominated by people who believe truth should be determined by revelation, not research.”

I’m not sure how these descriptions square with the fact that liberals keep responding to conservative ideas by throwing food. (Remember the good old days when liberals’ “fact-driven” ideas only meant throwing money at their problems?)

(snip)

On March 29, liberals’ intellectual retort to a speech by William Kristol at Earlham College was to throw a pie. On March 31, liberals enjoyed the hurly-burly of political debate with Pat Buchanan at Western Michigan University by throwing salad dressing. On April 6, liberals engaged David Horowitz on his ideas at Butler University by throwing a pie at him.

What might work better is some form of disincentive to liberals who engage in violent behavior whenever they hear an idea they don’t like but can’t come up with words to dispute.

But Ann…that’s the modus operandi of the left: when you’ve lost the argument (which is often), attack the winner! Geez, it’s like watching pro wrestling! And Hulk Hogan defeats Andre the Giant for the World Heavyweight Title! WHOA! Andre smacked him with the chair…what a sore loser!

Isn’t it funny that liberals can muster outrage when we attack Saddam Hussein, but nary a peep when fellow Americans are attacked? I know, food fights aren’t exactly military warfare, but I thought libs were supposed to be peace-loving pacifists against all violence? Well, I guess they are, but only to murderers and Islamic fascists, not to conservative speakers!

Oh, well…like Coulter says about the food hurlers: “Fortunately for me, liberals not only argue like liberals, they also throw like girls.”

  1. Johnny,

    Once again, you bring the truth to us in an, oh, so funny way!

    Being, as I believe you are, a “free thinker”, I actually would vote for the Dems if they had some sort of a freakin’ clue.

    Oh, hold on a minute…

    Bob Barker is beathing the crap out of Happy Gilmore….

    “The Price is Wrong…Beotch!!!

    Sorry…anyway…I wouldn’t have a problem voting for the Dems if they actually had a clue. I also feel bad that I vote for the Republicans when, they, perhaps, once again act like dumb ass spoiled brats.

    I would like to vote for libertarians, and such, but they won’t win. Then again, they won’t win, becuase many people think that way. Oh, christ…I’m just screwed either way…me, Mono, and “The Duker”. We’ll just vote our minds, play our trivia, and be the best of friends……..YOU MAY NOT LIKE IT…BUT YOU BETTER LEARN TO LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!, CAUSE IT’S THE BEST GAME IN TOWN……….WWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry, bro.

  2. Oh, and don’t forget Mr. Stuart Smalley, Al Fraken BODY-SLAMMING someone who dared call out Howard Dean an early run appearance?!?!?!?!

    The guy was taking Deano to task, from the crowd, and ole Al got in the guy’s face and told him to shut up. When they guy told him he was just excersizing his free speech rights, Al LITERALLY, picked him up and BODY SLAMMED HIM!!!!! (Al explained that he wreslted a little bit in college, and he was just getting rid of a negative element.

    I’m sorry. I’m not a violent person in any way, BUT, I would love to go to a Democratic rally, and have that little piss ant try to Body slam me!!!!!!!

  3. Nice way to liven thing up with the Ric Flair quote, Tom! 🙂

    Libertarians won’t win for two reasons: (1) too many people think it’s a wasted vote; and (2) Republicans are on ballots as REP, Democrats as DEM, and Libertarians as LIB…which the average Joe thinks means “liberal.” Good grief, couldn’t the party have picked a less offensive name?!? 🙂

    I have voted for Democrats on rare occasion: Pete Peterson for Congress in 1994 (because his opponent was that crazy anti-abortion bitch who couldn’t bring herself to condemn bombing abortion clincs or killing their doctors), Bill Nelson for insurance commissioner in 1994 and 1998 (for his taking on the insurance industry after Hurricane Andrew in 1992), and would have voted for TN governor Phil Bredesen in 2002 if I had lived there at the time.

    I can vote for Democrats…just not for liberals.

  4. I have to wonder if this is the start of a rift in the radical left ranks of the Democrat party.

    On the one hand, you have radical students. They like to throw pies.

    On the other hand you have Michael Moore radicals. They like to eat pies.
