Anybody else noticing a theme emerging here, that Democrat voters, by and large, have no idea why they’re Dems except for that they know they hate Republicans? They’re so deeply embedded in liberal zombieland, that their response to our charge of their generic cluelessness would be that, “Republicans don’t know why they’re Republicans except for that they know they hate gays, blacks, all foreigners, and they wake up at 6am to screw us over.”
Look, I may be exceptionally hard on the current state of Liberalism, but besides Democrat party orchestrators and the media, I give the vast majority of liberals, the total benefit of doubt with regard to their intentions.
Why is this respect not mutual? I believe it serves the same purpose that anti Japanese propaganda provided during WW2. Dehumanization of Republicans. Open minded consideration of conservative ideas and basic observations about life, tends to lead folks to conservatism. Striving to eliminate the chance a person will even be able to entertain a non-liberal idea, the Democrats have concocted a cyclone of victim politics which literally excuses rage while providing a common enemy to blame it on. Cookie-cutter this pathos to every public school and to every TV show and movie; in every publication and then in all higher learning centers where your intellectuals are; and as they say, “it goes viral.”
This is the only way in which so many people, the majority of the nation in fact, could have become so entirely dismissive and prejudiced towards the political party which espouses a majority of their own views?
Well done Dems! Wherever did you learn such cool tricks?
UPDATE. Who else but Dennis Prager to provide “clarity?”
But acknowledging America’s historic injustice and debt to blacks doesn’t mean that whatever policy such acknowledgment leads to will necessarily help them…The second way in which race-based affirmative action injures blacks is that it perpetuates the racist myth that race is significant. The notion that racial diversity is important is itself based on this racist idea. It confuses cultural diversity — a great asset to a university — with racial diversity. It tells the black student that the rest of us regard him first and foremost as black. Third, affirmative action tells blacks that America is so racist that they cannot achieve anything significant without having rules bent on their behalf. This is a libel on America, and it is utterly dispiriting to blacks.
