Why Liberals Use Insults and Why Their Arguments Sound Illogical - The Final Answer


I think this may be the final answer to two questions that have appeared baffling for years, specifically: why do the arguments of Liberals appear to be so illogical, and, why do Liberals hurl so many insults?
It's the same answer to both questions. Before we get to the answer, let's recap the background.
ILLOGIC, IN THE ARGUMENTS OF THE LEFT

You don't have to look far to see illogic in the arguments of the Left these days. A few examples:
  • Obamacare will cover 46 million additional people, will include no rationing of health care, and will not increase the deficit. The illogic here is appalling.
  • In order to improve the economy, it is essential to increase the national debt by $780 billion for a stimulus package; and by the way, one which isn't even intended to be spent in the first year of the "emergency" it is ostensibly intended to address.
  • Government regulation will deliver timely health care, when the government can't even write cash-for-clunkers checks in a timely fashion.
  • Obama argues that a tax policy that harms the economy and lowers tax revenues is preferable to one that raises revenues and strengthens the economy.
  • Pelosi calls waterboarding torture after previously approving it.
  • Cultures that bring health and prosperity are no better than those that bring death and misery.
  • ...and on and on and on and on.
See especially
and Victor Davis Hanson on this.
THE USE OF INSULTS BY LIBERALS
If you read or watch Liberal media - Bill Maher, Keith Olbermann, Kos, and on and on and on, you can't miss the insults. Olbermann is famous for having an actual section of his show titled "Worst Person in the World."
Under the radical leadership of Obama, top Dems have even been hurling insults, calling Americans - who are using their rights to free speech and free assembly to speak out against Obama's proposals - insulting names including, "un-American," "thugs," "racists," "nazis," "political terrorists," etc.
THE FINAL ANSWER
The reason Libs are using insults and illogic is to shut down public debate. Insults are an attack on public debate. The use of illogic is an attack on public debate. As I recently posted:
By intentionally using illogic in debate with the opposing side, meaningful debate is destroyed. The public, unable to tell who's winning the argument, is puzzled. The benefit to the left is that they are saying to all, "Join us and win power and money. Nothing else is relevant."

Yes, there are those who are fooled by the illogic of the arguments - e.g. many high schoolers and college students to whom these arguments have been preached by liberal teachers - and who fall for it. But that's not the case with the intellectual leadership of the left, many of whom are too smart to be fooled. The more profound thinkers on the left understand that the illogic is being used intentionally, to achieve a given goal, namely to confound all logical debate, and issue a siren call saying, "join us, and we will help you, and nothing else matters."
Public debate works. The truth defeats the purposes of the Left. Therefore the Left wants to shut down and destroy public debate.
STRATEGY TO COUNTER THE LEFT'S ATTACK ON PUBLIC DEBATE
First, don't respond to insults with insults. That's exactly what they want. Then they can claim, "The argument broke down into name-calling, and nothing was proven on either side. " Ignore their stupid insults and clobber them with the facts.
Second, bear in mind that most people in this country, regardless of political party, love America, and that civil public debate that communicates the facts to them will win, just as it has been winning on the health care debate throughout August. That's why the leadership on the left is trying so hard to shut civil public debate down. Seek ways to communicate the facts to friends, neighbors, contacts on Facebook/Twitter, etc. etc., because the truth is massively on our side.

Of course!!! A certain poster on here uses it almost daily.

It changes the debate from whatever You're talking about to You defending Yourself from the charge of racism....Works every time.

Look how well calling Bachman & Palin stupid is working......They consistently have to abandon their message to refute claims of being stupid.

I don't know she sounds pretty smart here.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is our kind of congressman! Last week, she met with the Republican Jewish Coalition in Los Angeles (the RJC is the national political group that recently hired former Sen. Norm Coleman).
Bachmann is a long-time friend of the Jewish state who first went to Israel in 1974, at the age of 18, to live on a kibbutz. Since being elected to Congress in 2006, she’s visited Israel an additional four times.
We thought you’d like to read her off-the-cuff response to a question about whether there’s a connection between Israeli’s security and that of the U.S.:
. . . I am convinced in my heart and in my mind that if the United States fails to stand with Israel, that is the end of the United States . . . [W]e have to show that we are inextricably entwined, that as a nation we have been blessed because of our relationship with Israel, and if we reject Israel, then there is a curse that comes into play. And my husband and I are both Christians, and we believe very strongly the verse from Genesis [Genesis 12:3], we believe very strongly that nations also receive blessings as they bless Israel. It is a strong and beautiful principle.
Right now in my own private Bible time, I am working through Isaiah . . . and there is continually a coming back to what God gave to Israel initially, which was the Torah and the Ten Commandments, and I have a wonderful quote from John Adams that if you will indulge me [while I find it] . . . [from his February 16, 1809 letter to François Adriaan van der Kemp]:
I will insist that the Hebrews have done more to civilize men than any other nation. If I were an atheist, and believed in blind eternal fate, I should still believe that fate had ordained the Jews to be the most essential instrument for civilizing the nations. If I were an atheist of the other sect, who believe or pretend to believe that all is ordered by chance, I should believe that chance had ordered the Jews to preserve and propagate to all mankind the doctrine of a supreme, intelligent, wise, almighty sovereign of the universe, which I believe to be the great essential principle of all morality, and consequently of all civilization.

She knows where her bread is buttered.

Personally, I believe that if the United States fails to stand with Israel, that there will be dire consequences.

You will find that approximately 90% of people in the world today who call themselves Jews are actually Khazars, or as they like to be known, Ashkenazi Jews. These people knowingly lie to the world with their claims that the land of Israel is theirs by birthright, when in actual fact their real homeland is over 800 miles away in Georgia.
So, next time you hear an Israeli Prime Minister bleating about the so-called persecution of the Jews, consider this, every Prime Minister of Israel has been an Ashkenazi Jew. Therefore when all these Prime Ministers have curried favour with the West for their re-establishment of a Jewish homeland, they have knowingly and deliberately lied to you, as they were never from that region, and they well know it, because it is they who call themselves Ashkenazi Jews.
