Liberals Do Not Really Care About People

Written on Monday, March 24, 2014 by David L. Goetsch

Years ago I came to the enlightened opinion that liberals talk about caring for people, but their actions belie their words. A recent discussion with a liberal friend drove this assertion home for me. Having spent almost forty years in higher education, I have accumulated several friends who are of the liberal persuasion. I forgive them this indiscretion because having never ventured outside the ivied halls of academia they don’t know any better. However, I do continue my mission of trying to educate my liberal friends—in spite of their steadfast reluctance to learn. Most of my liberal friends consider themselves intellectuals, but in truth on matters of politics and culture their minds are made up and they do not want to be bothered with the facts—not the attitude of an intellectual. Here is a case in point.

I recently visited with a liberal college professor in his office at the nearby campus where I spent so much of my adult life. On his wall hung a nice tapestry with an inspirational message woven into the scene it depicted. The message read: “Give a man a fish and you feed him today. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” I have always liked that maxim, but found it odd that my liberal friend would display an adage so obviously at odds with his leftwing beliefs......firmly believes that indoctrination is education. And there it is in a nutshell: the liberal’s answer to every quandary. When logic, reason, common sense, and the facts run counter to leftwing orthodoxy, fall back on intellectual elitism and academic snobbery..... To Read More......

My Take - Why would anyone have arrogant condescending, over educated, under smart blithering idiots for friends?
