Want to make a Democrat mad? Just accuse them of the things that they accuse Republicans of day in and day out. Democrats just love to say that we don’t care about the poor or that we don’t want the folks to have access to health care. Of course, we’ve all heard the rhetoric that we’re nothing but a bunch of racist bigots who dislike the current President of the United States just because he’s black. Well, he’s actually half black. His mother was white and his grandmother was a “typical white woman.”
About a year ago, I had the audacity to comment on a liberal friend’s Facebook post to the effect that it was really the Democrats who view women as inferiors. It’s the Democrats who are of the opinion that the Federal Government should pay for every woman’s birth control because women don’t have the self-control to manage their own libidos. In other words, it’s not the Republicans who have declared a war on women; instead, it’s the Democrats. Instead of engaging in reasonable discussion with me on the issue, I found myself subject to accusations that were not even related to the nature of my post.
Now this particular liberal/progressive/Democrat is an informed voter. She’s very active in the Democrat party and believes that big government is the only way to solve our nation’s problems. Needless to say, she is pro-choice, pro-illegal immigration, claims to be on the side of the poor and the down-trodden, yada, yada, yada. When I opined in my comment that I felt that it was the Democrats who were engaging in the war on women, she seemed to go into some kind of trance and commented back to me “canned verbiage” that she may have been taught at some progressive leadership seminar. It was really laughable.
The point that I’m attempting to make with this post is that Democrats seemed to get very mad and start hurling false accusations and begin name calling when you point out that the very things in which they accuse Republicans; they are even guiltier of.
Low information voters and those who get their information from the network news and other mainstream media outlets are apt to believe that Republicans dislike the current president because of his skin color. They are also apt to believe all of the garbage that is global warming/climate change. The mainstream media and this Democrat administration tell the low information electorate that the ever changing climate of the earth is a result of man-made carbon dioxide emissions, and if the low information voters don’t have time or are not inclined to look into the other side, they’re going fall for this lie; hook, line, and sinker. There are many, many more examples similar to the ones above that I could cite.
Then when they hear Democrats calling Republicans all sorts of names indicating that they are bigots, don’t care about the environment, don’t care about the poor, and want people to die because they are against socialize medicine, they think all of that is true. Then if you have the audacity to point out to them that it’s the Democrats that want to take our healthcare away from us resulting in more people dying earlier, they go crazy and call you even more names.
And forget even suggesting getting together and having a rational discussion of the issues, they’re not about to do that because they know they’re wrong and you’re right. All they’re capable of is name calling and hurling insults. And it’s frustrating that it seems to work on low information voters.
