Hysterical Liberal Intolerance
Newsflash: Liberals stand for nothing but Democrat power. This is about exploiting blacks for votes by maximizing failure and dependence while race-baiting the black community against everyone else…at the expense of their credibility, personal responsibility and dignity. It is about keeping blacks poor, angry and voting for the nanny state demagogues who led them down this path in the first place.
Sharia-pushing Islamist shares a stage with illegal immigrants who broke into our country at the treason convention. Shakes OUR Constitution in OUR faces while pretending that it says the complete opposite of what it says.
Newsflash: Constitutional rights don’t apply to foreigners. And the Constitution in no way obligates us to be the only country on Earth that doesn’t get to determine its own immigration laws or to acknowledge when it is under non-stop attack by bloodthirsty Islamic lunatics.
This embarrassingly ignorant lecturing from emotional liberal hysterics is naturally accompanied by the human shield tactic (hiding your absurd fallacies behind a sympathetic victim who cannot be questioned or criticized) because liberal arguments cannot compete on a level playing field against actual facts, evidence and thinking adults.
Democratic National Committee CEO Amy Dacey was recently forced to resign after her hacked emails (released by Wikileaks) revealed her conspiring to use the fact that Bernie Sanders is a Jew and an Atheist to destroy his candidacy.

Nothing silences a liberal mid-fallacy like pointing out exactly which officially recognized fallacy (bogus logic/BS diversionary tactic) they are in the process of using…preferably by its original Latin name.
Here are the top 10 examples:
10) Ad Populum: This many people agree with me, therefore I must be right.
Thinking Adult: Actually, being elected doesn’t mean you don’t have to follow the Constitution, or that your time-disproven ideas are justified or necessary.
9) Non-Sequitur: Using logic that simply does not follow.
Liberal: Since criminals keep committing gun crimes, law-abiding citizens (the only people who follow gun laws) must be disarmed.
Thinking Adult: Disarming victims for their assailants in no way reduces crime. It just tramples the Constitution and enslaves people to the whims of nanny state tyrants.
8) Straw Man: Distorting someone’s argument into something ridiculously easy to knock down.
Liberal: If you offer compromise-after-compromise to avoid endless debt and to delay Obama’s disastrous, Constitution-shredding health care takeover (as Democrats reject every offer to invent a fraudulent crisis out of thin air), then you are a terrorist holding the entire country hostage just because you aren’t getting everything you want. This is literally what liberals argued (with the help of relentless propaganda from our obscenely biased DNC ‘news media’).
Thinking Adult: That’s a “straw man” fallacy. Preferring fiscal sanity, actual compromise, and the rule of law is called checks and balances, or representative government. Disagreement only seems like anarchy and terrorism to tyrannical despots.
7) Ad Nauseum: This argument is valid because I keep repeating it.
Liberal: Incessantly twisting everything Mitt Romney says to paint him as some kind of pathological liar (from Barack ‘You Can Keep Your Plan’ Obama—the guy who falsely promised not one dime of tax hikes on those making less than $250,000) eventually will make him a liar.
Thinking Adult: That’s an “ad nauseum” fallacy.
**See also the media’s relentless “repeat-it-until-it’s-accepted” smear campaigns against the Tea Parties, Fox News, the war in Iraq, Sarah Palin, the NRA, Ted Cruz, George Zimmerman, Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, and anyone else who gets in the way of Democrat power**
6) Ad misericordiam: This argument must be valid because there is suffering.
Liberal: We feel sorry for illegal immigrants (future Democrat voters), therefore we should reward them for breaking into our country by adding 15 million foreign criminals to our already bankrupt welfare system, so they can further overrun our school systems, crowd our prisons, bottom out our wages, and march down our streets with their flags, demanding that we speak their language.
Thinking Adult: That’s an “ad misericordiam” fallacy. You arbitrarily choosing to feel sorry for those who despise and exploit our country in no way obligates anyone to reward or legitimize their endless crimes and abuses.
5) Ad logicam: This one piece of evidence isn’t valid, therefore the entire argument it supported must also be invalid.
Liberal: CBS was duped into interviewing a fraudulent Benghazi witness, therefore any concern about Democrats abandoning four Americans to be savagely tortured to death in the streets by Islamic lunatics while lying about it and covering it up at every turn is no longer legitimate (Media Matters).
4) Ad antiquitatem: This is the way things are done/have been done for a long time, therefore continuing to do them this way must be valid.
Liberal: Obamacare is the “law of the land,” therefore it must be accepted.
Thinking Adult: That’s an “ad antiquatatem” fallacy. Just because a law has been passed doesn’t mean it is valid or should be followed, and in no way implies that it should not be overturned, repealed or defunded.
**Liberals also use the reverse of this fallacy to argue, for instance, that the Constitution is obsolete, as if separation of powers, checks and balances and basic rights and liberties somehow no longer apply.**
3) Ad verecundiam: This important person or expert agrees with me, therefore I must be right.
Liberal: Global warming is a legitimate crisis warranting massive government intervention into every aspect of our lives (what liberals just so happened to be seeking anyway) because there is a “scientific consensus” (which is liberal-speak for widespread disagreement).
Thinking Adult: That’s an “ad verecundiam” fallacy (as well as an “ad populum” fallacy: this many people agree with me, therefore I must be right). Just because someone who is important or smart agrees with you doesn’t mean you are right. Defend your own arguments with your own reasoning or don’t make them.
**The use of this fallacy is often accompanied by the ad hominem fallacy of smearing the motives of any scientist who reaches a different conclusion. Experts who question the left’s absurd scare-mongering war on science are relentlessly vilified as agenda-driven right-wing fanatics or as having been paid off by “Big Oil”…even though it is the alarmists themselves who have been repeatedly caught doctoring results, falsifying data and misinforming the public**
2) Cum hoc, ergo propter hoc: Two things happened at once, therefore one must have caused the other.
Liberal: Bill Clinton was in office while things were good, therefore the tech boom that created the prosperity is somehow his doing and it does not matter that his policies eventually caused 9/11 and destroyed the economy. Additionally, George Bush was in office when the Democrat policies he tried to stop destroyed the economy, therefore, Bush destroyed the economy.
It is the fallacy of mistaking correlation for causation.
Thinking Adult: That’s a “cum hoc, ergo propter hoc” fallacy. Just because two things happen at once doesn’t mean one caused the other. Show me how Bill Clinton’s policies had anything to do with the prosperity, how they didn’t cause 9/11 and destroy the economy, and how Bush is responsible for someone else’s policies, which he vehemently opposed.
**See also the interrogation policies Obama opposed that led us to bin Laden, and the success of “The Surge” in Iraq, which Obama also opposed, but took credit for**
1) Ad hominem: Responding to an argument with insults and smears against one’s motives.
Liberal: You disagreed with Obama’s disastrous policies, therefore you must be racist. And you objected to limitless, taxpayer-funded abortions and contraceptives, therefore you are waging a “war on women.”
(2 + 2 = You’re ugly)
Thinking Adult: That’s an “ad hominem” fallacy. Name-calling and smears are not valid logic. Refute the point or don’t.
“When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.” —Socrates
**The exhaustively over-used race card tactic also qualifies as another fallacy called the “red herring,” in which you respond to an argument by introducing something completely irrelevant to divert attention. Liberals like to cite accusations of communism in the 1950s as an example of this (even though virtually everything Sen. Joseph McCarthy claimed was eventually vindicated), but never being able to disagree with Democrats without being smeared as a racist is a far more accurate example**
There are many, many more examples of logical fallacies that liberals regularly use to silence debates they cannot legitimately win. They are easy to learn and devastating to use in an argument. And they really capture what emotional, adolescent hysterics liberals are.
The dishonest propagandists at Politifact have been caught in yet another brazen assault on the facts. As reported on Tuesday by Breitbart, Politifact recently rated another provably correct Republican statement as “mostly false” based solely on their own deliberate misinterpretation of his argument.
Chris Christie recently slammed Obama’s disastrously irresponsible surrender of the Syrian crisis to the whims of Russia. He stated: “I’ll tell you what reckless is. What’s reckless is is calling Assad a reformer. What’s reckless is allowing Russia to come into Crimea and Ukraine. What reckless is is inviting Russia into Syria to team with Iran.”
The openly biased “fact-checkers” at Politifact responded by intentionally misrepresenting his argument as being that Obama invited Russia to launch airstrikes in Syria, thus allowing them to rush in to “set the record straight” by erroneously smearing another Obama opponent as a liar for telling the truth. But this clearly defies the facts, as the record plainly shows.
Christie even went out of his way to emphasize that he was referring to Obama inviting Putin “to broker an agreement with Assad to give up his chemical weapons,” as he put it to CNN’s Jake Tapper. This White House attempt at damage control after Obama’s self-discrediting humiliation in the “thin red line” debacle was then used by Putin to outmaneuver, override, and marginalize our embarrassingly amateur president from that moment forward.
It was abundantly clear that this is what Christie was arguing from the beginning. Politifact simply chose to twist his words and portray him as a liar, rather than doing anything even vaguely resembling an actual fact-check.
PolitiFact knows what Christie meant last week. We know this because the left-wing frauds even quote Christie’s answer to Jake Tapper. But they bury it at the bottom of 20 paragraphs and dismiss it without comment.
Nonetheless, ever in the service of Barack Obama, even though they know the truth, PolitiFact declares Christie a liar.
Again, these partisan media “fact-checkers” have made a total laughing stock out of journalism at this point. They blindly accept liberal opinions, assumptions, and attitudes as hard fact while vindictively attacking anyone who questions them as a liar, with zero regard for facts, evidence, or truth.
Remember when the American people rose up in outrage to resist Obama’s illegal, trillion-dollar health care takeover? They flooded town hall meetings across the country for months with massive crowds furiously demanding that politicians reverse course immediately. Then there were the polls. Then there were the historic upset victories against Democrats in Massachusetts (Scott Brown), New Jersey (Chris Christie), and Virginia (Bob McDonnell).
The American people screamed from the rooftops in every way they knew how that they did not want this Marxist, economy-killing attack on free market health care (because it would needlessly destroy the system that eighty-four percent of Americans were happy with, based almost entirely on lies). But condescending elitist snobs in Washington responded by telling voters to sit down, shut up, and take what they were given.
It was at this moment that it became unmistakably clear that this is no longer a representative government. Those who were supposed to be taking their orders from this increasingly appalled electorate had completely abandoned their oaths of office, hijacked the republic, and turned it against its rightful rulers—the American people.
Since then, it has only become even more clear that words and voting can no longer restore our utterly trampled rights and liberties. After Democrats blackmailed and bribed Obamacare through Congress, the presidential election of 2012 was then rigged for liberals by the nomination of the guy who authored the state version of Obamacare—leftist Republican Mitt Romney. This was made possible by liberal states allowing Democrats to vote in Republican primaries.
Then, the Supreme Court ludicrously contradicted the authors of the law (and its own previous assertions) to illegally redefine and legitimize Obamacare as a massive tax hike. This, of course, completely ignores the fact that the Constitution provably does not authorize the Federal Government to do whatever it feels like, simply by calling things tax hikes.
As with slavery, segregation, Japanese internment, etc., the Supreme Court regularly proves itself to be on the wrong side of history and tramples the Constitution more than almost anyone at this point. It’s treasonous refusal to defend the citizenry against even the most blatantly illegal attacks on our God-given right to self-rule has officially removed all doubt that it is an open enemy of the American people, and cannot be counted on to restore anyone’s rights and liberties.
Then, there were the huge, sweeping victories for Republicans in both the House and Senate in the last two elections. The GOP responded to this historic, across-the-board support by completely surrendering on every front and fully funding Obama’s Constitution-shredding amnesty, environmental extremism, and Planned Parenthood.
The American people are running out of peaceful ways to reclaim what is rightfully theirs. All indications are that Washington is now a liberal, one-party system with a flaming socialist wing (Democrats) and a moderate wing (Republicans)…with zero actual representation for the American people.
Regular citizens are being stabbed in the back and thrown under the bus at every turn. And as they are endlessly bankrupted, impoverished, and enslaved by the rampant abuses of lawless tyrants in Washington, they are increasingly willing to resort to desperate extremes (Donald Trump) to stop the insanity.
Only a bold, unapologetic conservative proposing drastic measures can pull us back from the cliff at this point. And as we are violently shoved into the re-enslavement phase of the liberty-tyranny cycle, if that person is not elected president in 2016, we will be left with civil (or un-civil) disobedience and/or secession. In other words, we will officially be out of peaceful remedies.
Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence that when government becomes adversarial to the rights and interests of The People, it becomes both the right and the responsibility of The People to rise up and “alter or abolish” that government. And as John F. Kennedy once warned, “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable.”
