The Democrat Left will tell you the thousands of times Trump has lied. Of course this is not only the pot calling the kettle black but it is often a case of disagreeing with the the Left’s opinion. If you don’t accept the Democrat Left’s premises then you are lying becasue the Democraft Left occupies the higher moral ground. Just ask any of them and they will tell you such.
Now Trump is no Saint. He is a bellowing braggart bully who often exaggerates. Name me a politician who isn’t a bit. But Trump carries it one step further. He will run your nose into your deficiencies. He is the master of the insult, the Don Rickles of politicians who claims he isn’t one. He is artistic in his put downs. We all remember “Crooked Hillary, Pocahontas, Low Energy Jeb, Little Marco. Pencil Neck, Little Rocket Man, Sleepy Joe, Cryin’ Chuck,” etc., etc.
Trump overstates, overemphasizes, speaks out of turn, argues, overpowers people and in general is loud and belligerant. This goes back to his main attribute that he is a fighter, the type of fighter who is a street brawler. Diplomacy is not one of his strong points.
Yet the Democrat Left often take what he says out of context, they leave out portions of his quotes which changes their meaning and they outright lie in labeling a Trump lie. If there was somebody on the Conservative side who was cataloging lies like the Democrat Left does, Democrats would double the number of Republican so called “lies.”
Liberalism is like a religion, and it has zealots as fanatical as any other religion. But unlike most religions, liberalism has no moral code. The closest thing to a moral code in liberalism is “don’t get caught”. Ethics are situational, and totally up for interpretation. The truth is subjective, and the truth is merely what you want it to be. To the fanatic the leftist cause is so noble, so sacred that any lying or cheating for the leftist cause is justified.
When a liberal lies to the American public, he is in effect saying,
“You are too stupid to know what is good for you. I know what is good for you. I will say anything I need to say to convince you my way is the right way.”
If liberals were honest about their vision for this country few people would ever vote for them. Liberals must lie to us in order to impose the tyranny of liberalism upon us.Izzy Weird
Saying something is a “lie” implies intent. Politicians talk a lot on campaigns, they say a lot of things. Sometimes people just make errors. They got a detail wrong, forget something, — they didn’t necessarily purposefully deceive. But the fact checkers make it seem that way.
There is an organic connection between liberalism and lies. Lying is the lifeblood and mother’s milk of liberalism. Liberals and the left lie effortlessly and naturally. They are far more comfortable with lies than the truth. Speaking the truth is almost impossibility for them. It’s in their DNA.
Liberals cannot tell the truth, and in this context the word has two meanings. They cannot tell the truth because what they want to accomplish isn’t what most people want. And they cannot tell the truth because it’s become habitual not to. It is so much a part and parcel of their being that it’s become second nature. They do it without thinking. They actually enjoy lying. It’s their favorite pastime.
Arrogance is why they can lie with a clear conscience. It is the widespread application of the end justifying the means. They are so existentially certain that they are right and that their opponents are misguided and ignorant that any strategy is justified. If you have a mindset of needing to tell and force other people how to live their lives, you have to believe that you’re better, smarter, and more informed than they are. Humility is an attitude that never enters their minds.
They are certain that the people they’re lying to are just a bunch of rubes anyway. They cannot imagine any legitimate reason anyone would disagree with them. If you disagree there must be something wrong with you. Lying to someone means you have contempt for him.
They lie about who their opponents are. They say their opponents are racists, woman haters, and “mean spirited.” Those are slanders and they know it. They lie about anyone who dares to disagree with them.
They lie about what their true objectives and motives are. They are not trying to save humanity from global warming, they are trying to increase their power and control and decrease your freedom. Obamacare is not about expanding health care coverage, it’s about the government taking control of a sixth of the economy.
Liberal dishonesty makes it impossible to debate issues with them. When one side of a debate has absolutely no qualms about concealing its real objectives, is willing to fabricate and grossly exaggerate the facts, there is no possibility for authentic dialogue. Lying is a way of avoiding a real debate that they know they would lose. Accusing their opponents of racism is a way to deflect an honest debate.
