I have an answer for the Instapundit's favorite question: "Why is the Democratic Party such a cesspit of hypocrisy?" in two words: "disconfirmatory reality,” meaning the failure of reality to conform to their beliefs. This leads to all sorts of mischief and worse.
Last week, revered left wing thinker Noam Chomsky said that President Trump and the Republican Party represent a worse threat to humanity than ISIS; NBC news reader Lester Holt interrupted the President of the United States nine times in three minutes; some art professor announced that Republicans in Congress should be lined up and shot; and exactly none of the mainstream media players, from the New York Times to CBS and the Huffington Post, all of which had spent weeks enthusiastically berating Sarah Palin for suggesting the Republicans target a few House districts for election purposes protested repeated calls for Trump's assassination or saw anything wrong with any of the rest of it.
This behavior stands in stark contrast to what Republicans do when they lose elections: no serious conservative, for example, advocated that Obama be shot; tea party gatherings never turned into riots; and even fringe right wing sites generally talk more about issues than personalities..........More
My Take - In the real world of leftism - they have no solid moral foundation as a basis for their views. There's only one morality for the left - gain power by any means possible - even if it means adopting values that are 180 degrees in opposition to one another, which is outlined in this article.
The left lies and cheats without any compunction or restraint because corruption is so much a part of the left's package they don't see any of that as being wrong - unless the right should be caught at it and then they howl with all the moral outrage they and their media allies can muster.
To be a leftist is to be irrational, misanthropic and morally defective. We really do need to get that!
