The 5 Biggest Things Liberals Get Wrong About Themselves

1) Liberals Are Better Than Everyone Else: If there’s one thing that liberals are sure of beyond all others, it’s that they are better, smarter and more capable than everyone else by virtue of being liberals.

2) Liberals Are Victims: Wrong. Liberals are bullies. In fact, they’re the worst kind of bullies -- bullies who believe that they’re the victims. Those are the worst kind of bullies because they believe they’ve already been wronged and therefore almost anything they do in “retaliation” is justified.

3) Liberals Are Rebellious: If some nerd standing in the middle of a Star Trek convention shouted, “Star Wars is inferior to Star Trek” and then wanted everyone to pat him on the back and tell him how courageous he was for doing it, people would laugh. Yet liberals surround themselves almost entirely with other liberals, get liberalism served up to them at school, watch liberalism on TV at home, hear liberal messages from their favorite celebrities and musicians, get their news from MSNBC and the Daily Show and then want all the other libs doing the same thing to laud them for their courage because they say, “I don’t like Donald Trump” or “Good for Colin Kaepernick for protesting during the national anthem!”

4) Liberals Are Tolerant: The LEAST TOLERANT people in America outside of maybe the God Hates F*gs wackos are liberals. Don’t believe that? Try being a conservative who’s invited to speak on a college campus, a black man who likes Donald Trump or a gay American who opposes gay marriage and see how that goes for you when you interact with liberals.

5) Liberals Are In Favor Of Progress: Liberals are so sure that they’re in favor of progress that they call themselves “progressives.” Meanwhile, they’ve been pushing variations on the same economic agenda for 80 years even after socialism became so discredited that even the “red Chinese” started moving toward capitalism. Their ideas on free speech at college campuses? They believe in shutting down the speech of people that disagree with them,

2. Hehe. Liberals have science and respect truth though.

We have the above foibles just like Republicans do, but luckily our respect for science and truth allows us to keep our lesser natures much more in check than Republicans.

10. Science is indeed "not bad"... if you are loyal to it

Making it up as you go to fit political goals however, is not science.
Lefty lost sight of that a couple of decades ago

11. Science? 80% of liberals who went to college majored in non-scientific fields

Like gender studies or sociology because most flunked math and never took a physics course.

17. I Could Care Less

What perjoratives conservatives throw around about liberals and liberalism. As long as liberals continue to control the media, run the educational system and have nine out of the top ten states in household income, I'll continue to be a happy libbie!
States Ranked By Median Household Income
1) Maryland: $70,004--liberal state (defined by whether the state went for Trump or Clinton)
2) New Jersey: $69,825--liberal state
3) California: $67,458--liberal state
4) Connecticut: $65,753--liberal state
*) District of Columbia: $65,124--liberal federal district
5) Massachusetts: $64,859--liberal state
6) New Hampshire: $64,712--liberal state
7) Virginia: $62,881--liberal state
8) Hawaii: $62,814--liberal state
9) Minnesota: $61,814--liberal state
10) Alaska: $60,287--conservative state
*United States Median Household Income: $50,502
50) Mississippi: $36,909--conservative state

24. There is a difference between "thinking for you"

and LEARNING from the strategies employed by people who have accomplished what you are hoping to accomplish.
Do you really believe that anyone who reads "The Art of the Deal" by Donald J. Trump wants Trump to think for them? That's silly.

25. Yes, that's true

For many years if my parents didn't tell me what to do, I would have been lost.
After that, if my teachers didn't tell me what to do, I would have been lost, particularly in trigonometry!
After that, if my professors didn't tell me what to do, I would have been lost, particularly in Inferential Statistics.
After that, if my supervisors didn't tell me what to do, I would have been lost. But I learned.
And thank God, I got by with a little help from my friends..

28. So you required someone to hold your hand throughout

 

your life? Gives all new meaning to "Cradle to Grave". Thanks for explaining why Lefty is the way he's been told to be/think/act/exist -- it's really sad when one thinks about it. Lemming will be lemmings -- amirite?

Have a good weekend and do it now!

happy being a puppet of the rich then go for it. I thought LEFTY was all about being the spokes-mouths for the poor Also, there are quite a few states in the top of your list that are ranked as the most segregated in the country -- why does Lefty hate poor black people or is it just poor people in general?

23. The poorest states

The richest person ever elected to the presidency is Donald J. Trump.

The higher your household income, the less you need to be a "puppet for the rich." The poorer you are the more dependent you are on the rich people in the federal and state government.
Where households have the lowest incomes are also the states with the most people on welfare. So in many conservative states, not only don't people make much money, their taxes have to go to pay for people even poorer than the working poor.
(CNSNews.com) – A report by the Tax Foundation shows what percentage of each state’s revenue comes from the federal government through federal grants-in-aid, a sum that in total has reached $600 billion a year.

Federal grants-in-aid to state and local governments include payments for Medicaid, education funding assistance, infrastructure project support, housing grants, and other payments, according to the Tax Foundation.

For fiscal year 2013, which is the latest year for complete data, the Tax Foundation found that Mississippi got 42.9% of its general revenue from the federal government, and Louisiana came in second with 41.9% of its revenue from the U.S. Treasury.

The 10 states receiving the most in federal aid as a percentage of their general revenue, in order, were:

Mississippi (50th in income), 42.9% federal aid as percentage of general revenue--Conservative state
Louisiana (42nd in income), 41.9%-Conservative state
Tennessee (40th in income), 39.5%-Conservative state
South Dakota (28th in income), 39.0%-Conservative state
Missouri (32nd in income)38.2%-Conservative state
Montana (33rd in income) 37.4%-Conservative state
Georgia (37th in income), 37.3%-Conservative state
New Mexico (46th in income), 36.6%-Liberal state
Alabama (47th in income), 36.1%-Conservative state
Maine (23rd in income), 35.3%-Trump won one district and Clinton won two.

26. You could replace every instance of the word 'liberal' with conservative and it would be true

 

plus or minus a few words.
