Though liberals regard themselves as intellectual -- their views, after all, are those of nearly all university professors -- liberal thought has almost died. Instead of feeling the need to thoughtfully consider an idea, most liberal minds today work on automatic. One-word reactions to most issues are the liberal norm.

This is easy to demonstrate.

Here is a list of terms liberals apply to virtually every idea or action with which they differ:

Racist
Sexist
Homophobic
Islamophobic
Imperialist
Bigoted
Intolerant

And here is the list of one-word descriptions of what liberals are for:

Peace
Fairness
Tolerance
The poor
The disenfranchised
The environment

These two lists serve contemporary liberals in at least three ways.

First, they attack the motives of non-liberals and thereby morally dismiss the non-liberal person.

Second, these words make it easy to be a liberal -- essentially all one needs to do is to memorize this brief list and apply the right term to any idea or policy. That is one reason young people are more likely to be liberal -- they have not had the time or inclination to think issues through, but they know they oppose racism, imperialism and bigotry, and that they are for peace, tolerance and the environment.

Third, they make the liberal feel good about himself -- by opposing conservative ideas and policies, he is automatically opposing racism, bigotry, imperialism, etc.

Examples could fill a book.

Harry Reid, as noted above, supplied a classic one. Instead of grappling with the enormously significant question of how to maintain American identity and values with tens of millions of non-Americans coming into America, the Democratic leader and others on the Left simply label attempts to keep English as a unifying language as "racist."

Another classic example of liberal non-thought was the reaction to former Harvard University President Lawrence Summers' mere question about whether the female and male brains were wired differently. Again, instead of grappling with the issue, Harvard and other liberals merely dismissed Summers as "sexist."

A third example is the use of the term "racist" to end debate about race-based affirmative action or even to describe a Capitol police officer who stops a black congresswoman who has no ID badge.

"Phobic" is the current one-word favorite among liberal dismissals of ideological opponents. It combines instant moral dismissal with instant psychological analysis. If you do not support society redefining marriage to include members of the same sex you are "homophobic" -- and further thought is unnecessary. If you articulate a concern about the moral state of Islam today, you are "Islamophobic" -- and again further thought is unnecessary. And if you seek to retain English as America's unifying language, you are not only racist, you are, as the New York Times editorial describes you, "xenophobic" and "Latinophobic," the latest phobia uncovered by the Left.

There is a steep price paid for the liberal one-wording of complex ideas -- the decline of liberal thought. But with more and more Americans graduating college and therefore taught the liberal list of one-word reactions instead of critical thinking, many liberals do not see any pressing need to think through issues. They therefore do not believe they have paid any price at all.

But American society is paying a steep price. Every car that has a bumper sticker declaring "War is not the answer" powerfully testifies to the intellectual decline of the well educated and to the devolution of "liberal thought" into an oxymoron.

The identity and values of the United States are spelled out in the Constitution. Although slaves were counted as only partially human at first, this stupid idea (a nod to the CONSERVATIVE Southern states) was soon outmoded.

There is NOTHING anywhere (outside of KKK by-laws) that equates the identity and values of the United States with white, European culture.

But, these are the code-words, aren't they?

"American" refers to people of the Americas, both North and South. To call a Mexican a "non-American" is either a lie or an exercise in stupidity.

Ask someone from one of our aboriginal cultures how they feel about "non-Americans" coming here.

One last comment, Spysmasher; before you start commenting on "liberal" professors, you try getting a college education, instead of being so gullible as to believe everything your conservayive writers lie about.

Question:

Why are Spysmasher's posts always like the Democratic opposition to the Bush administration?

I'll bite. Why?

Superfrankenstein said...

Tex,

I hate Sugar Frosted Flakes because of the pleasure and nutrition they have brought to decent white Christians.

It's always a hairy read.

Leave SF alone!

He's got a problem.

He's realized that I am smarter than he is, a more persuasive writer than he is, and worst of all, he's realized I am here to stay!

So he's trying to get rid of me... by ignoring me, by not making politiccal posts, whatever.

I'll be banned soon, because in the end that's all what all you "free speech!" liberals do.

Until I am -- I will continue to refute the idiocy posted here on a daily basis. I see you liberals have realized you cannot win against me in arguments! You don't even try any more. Now it's all infantile "humor." Soon I will have you agreeing with me outright!

Thanks again, SF, for providing me with a forum to educate liberals!

S.S. This is a humor site. The people who come here come for a quick read, a laugh, and then get on with their day.

You come here as a bully. You know no one listens to you, and yet you continue to come here, insult and throw your weight around. Yet you admit no one will listen to you. Do you think your arguements are fresh,new or original? Do you think no one here has heard them before? What is your purpose? What jollies do you get from this? What does this say about you that you have nothing better to do with your day?

Dear Anon,

A humor site? In case you haven't figured it out yet, this is NOT a humor site.

This is a site dedicated to bashing Bush, Jesus, Christians and Republicans in general. So I am here representing the "other side."

No one is listening to me? Check the page. SF's posts are virtually ignored until I respond to them! When I do, the post suddenly gets dozens of comments. If I don't -- a big goose egg.

The truth is YOU don't agree with me, so, in typical liberal fashion, you try to smear me.

In your NEXT post, why not call me....

Racist
Sexist
Homophobic
Islamophobic
Imperialist
Bigoted
Intolerant

It's all you people know!
