The Twelve Rules For Being A Liberal

Twelve Rules For Being A Liberal




There may be no official rule book for being a liberal, but that doesn't mean there aren't rules. There are actually quite a few rules liberals go by and the more politically active liberals become, the more rigidly they tend to stick to their own code of behavior. These rules, most of which are unspoken, are passed along culturally on the Left and viciously enforced. Ironically, many liberals could not explain these rules to you and don't even consciously know they're following them. So, by reading this article, not only will you gain a better understanding of liberals, you'll know them better than they know themselves in some ways.

1) You justify your beliefs about yourself by your status as a liberal, not your deeds. The most sexist liberal can think of himself as a feminist while the greediest liberal can think of himself as generous. This is because liberals define themselves as being compassionate, open minded, kind, pro-science and intelligent not based on their actions or achievements, but based on their ideology. This is one of the most psychologically appealing aspects of liberalism because it allows you to be an awful person while still thinking of yourself as better than everyone else.

2) You exempt yourself from your attacks on America: Ever notice that liberals don't include themselves in their attacks on America? When they say, "This is a racist country," or ",This is a mean country," they certainly aren't referring to themselves or people who hold their views. Even though liberals supported the KKK, slaughtering the Indians, and putting the Japanese in internment camps, when they criticize those things, it's meant as an attack on everyone else EXCEPT LIBERALS. The only thing a liberal believes he can truly do wrong is to be insufficiently liberal.

3) What liberals like should be mandatory and what they don't like should be banned: There's an almost instinctual form of fascism that runs through most liberals. It's not enough for liberals to love gay marriage; everyone must be forced to love gay marriage. It's not enough for liberals to be afraid of guns; guns have to be banned. It's not enough for liberals to want to use energy-saving light bulbs; incandescent light bulbs must be banned. It's not enough for liberals to make sure most speakers on campuses are left-wing; conservative speakers must be shouted down or blocked from speaking.

4) The past is always inferior to the present: Liberals tend to view traditions, policies, and morals of past generations as arbitrary designs put in place by less enlightened people. Because of this, liberals don't pay much attention to why traditions developed or wonder about possible ramifications of their social engineering. It’s like an architect ripping out the foundation of a house without questioning the consequences and if the living room falls in on itself as a result, he concludes that means he needs to make even more changes.

5) Liberalism is a jealous god and no other God may come before it: A liberal "Christian" or "Jew" is almost an oxymoron because liberalism trumps faith for liberals. Taking your religious beliefs seriously means drawing hard lines about right and wrong and that's simply not allowed. Liberals demand that even God bow down on the altar of liberalism.

6) Liberals believe in indiscriminateness for thought: This one was so good that I stole it from my buddy, Evan Sayet: " Indiscriminateness of thought does not lead to indiscriminateness of policy. It leads the modern liberal to invariably side with evil over good, wrong over right and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success. Why? Very simply if nothing is to be recognized as better or worse than anything else then success is de facto unjust. There is no explanation for success if nothing is better than anything else and the greater the success the greater the injustice. Conversely and for the same reason, failure is de facto proof of victimization and the greater the failure, the greater the proof of the victim is, or the greater the victimization."

7) Intentions are much more important than results: Liberals decide what programs to support based on whether they make them feel good or bad about themselves, not because they work or don't work. A DDT ban that has killed millions is judged a success by liberals because it makes them feel as if they care about the environment. A government program that wastes billions and doesn't work is a stunning triumph to the Left if it has a compassionate sounding name. It would be easier to convince a liberal to support a program by calling it the “Saving Women And Puppies Bill" than showing that it would save 100,000 lives.

8) The only real sins are helping conservatism or harming liberalism: Conservatives often marvel at the fact that liberals will happily elect every sort of pervert, deviant, and criminal you can imagine without a second thought. That's because right and wrong don't come into the picture for liberals. They have one standard: Does this politician help or hurt liberalism? If a politician helps liberalism, he has a free pass to do almost anything and many of them do just that.

9) All solutions must be government-oriented: Liberals may not be as down on government as conservatives are, but on some level, even they recognize that it doesn't work very well. So, why are liberals so hell bent on centralizing as much power as possible in government? Simple, because they believe that they are better and smarter than everyone else by virtue of being liberals and centralized power gives them the opportunity to control more people's lives. There's nothing scarier to liberals than free people living their lives as they please without wanting or needing the government to nanny them.

10) You must be absolutely close minded: One of the key reasons liberals spend so much time vilifying people they don't like and questioning their motivations is to protect themselves from having to consider their arguments. This helps create a completely closed system for liberals. Conservative arguments are considered wrong by default since they're conservative and not worth hearing. On the other hand, liberals aren't going to make conservative arguments. So, a liberal goes to a liberal school, watches liberal news, listens to liberal politicians, has liberal friends, and then convinces himself that conservatives are all hateful, evil, racist Nazis so that any stray conservatism he hears should be ignored. It makes liberal minds into perfectly closed loops that are impervious to anything other than liberal doctrine.

11) Feelings are more important than logic: Liberals base their positions on emotions, not facts and logic and then they work backwards to shore up their position. This is why it's a waste of time to try to convince a liberal of anything based on logic. You don't "logic" someone out of a position that he didn't use "logic" to come up with in the first place.

12) Tribal affiliation is more important than individual action: There's one set of rules for members of the tribe and one set of rules for everyone else. Lying, breaking the rules, or fomenting hatred against a liberal in good standing may be out of bounds, but there are no rules when dealing with outsiders, who are viewed either as potential recruits, dupes to be tricked, or foes to be defeated. This is the same backwards mentality you see in places like Iraq and Afghanistan, except it's based on ideology, not religion.

The biggest problem in this country is not liberal politics or conservative politics.

It is our complete inability to have a discussion without demonizing and generalizing those that disagree with us.

I'm probably guilty of more of that on this message board than I would like to admit. It's easy to get caught up.

They never heard a coach praying with his high school team they didn't want to stifle. They hate "In God We Trust" on the dollar and hate "one nation under God" in the Pledge. Liberals don't want freedom OF religion, they want freedom FROM religion, with no religious presence anywhere they go. If I am wrong in this, then maybe they are not as God hating as Christian hating, but I will stick with God hating for now.

Yes military hating. Some liberal cities have banned the military from recruiting at high schools. San Francisco refused to anchor the USS Iowa not due to cost but because they support politicians who hate the military. They want women and homosexuals in the military to weaken it. It must drive liberals nuts to go to football games with a huge flag and a military honor guard.

Yes gun hating. If I even need to explain this to you, we have a problem. Every major liberal city bans or severely restricts gun ownership and carry. Compare that to states like Montana and Idaho. Again, this is so flagrantly obvious, you know I don't need to explain this to you.

Yes, responsiblity hating. If you get pregnant, liberals say you are a victim and never ask you to take responsibility for your CHOICE to engage in sex that leads to getting pregnant. If you are unemployed, again you are a victim to a liberal. The evil GOP and corporations didn't GIVE YOU a job. Never mind your responsibility to work hard, improve skills and enhance your value to an employer. If you aren't rich, then again liberals say you are a victim, because the EVIL GREEDY rich aren't sharing enough wealth with you.

The failure to hold people responsible for their actions and choices is the single most egregious sin that liberals commit, because all else follows from it. Free health care follows from people who refuse to work and earn the money to buy it. Food stamps follow from people who refuse to work and earn the means to live. Ditto welfare. Abortion follows from the irresponsible chosen behavior that leads to it. All of the nanny state coddling of "victims" follow from the fact that liberals refuse to exercise tough love but rather coddle the "victims" and provide everything for them from cradle to grave, rather than demand they take responsibility for their own choices and actions.


It's great to see liberals under the microscope right now. It's like putting up a mirror so they can see what it has evolved in to (statism) and it is very ugly. You can tell by the reaction of the libs on this thread, they don't like what they see at all.

That doesn't really describe any of the liberals I know. Your sweeping generalizations and insistence to label half the population with every single attribute you dislike is why you don't understand and can't compromise with the opposition.

What is your escape plan?

I'm looking to retire in Virginia, but NoVa is turning it liberal pretty rapidly. That and the State Police will give you a reckless ticket for chewing gum in your car. All the really good states are landlocked or in the middle of nowhere. I am set on retiring to the east coast. It is hard finding a state that is not liberal and isn't filled with snow or blazing hot in summer.

First, you don't compromise with evil, so I don't know why you would want to compromise with liberals. If a guy wants to chop off my arms, I don't compromise and just pick one he can chop off. Wrong is wrong. You don't compromise with it, you fight it. Liberals are generally wrong, which is why our nation is constantly declining as it is continually shoved to the left.

Second, the liberals you personally know may actually be moderates, but they are liberal with respect to the conservatives they know. Not all liberals or conservatives are equally liberal or conservatives. Montana's liberals are right of the conservatives in Berkeley California or Boulder Colorado.

The mindset that the "Other" side is destroying everything is exactly why our nation is declining. Both sides are on a quickly sinking ship, yet they're too busy squabbling amongst themselves to realize that everybody is going down, and neither party by itself is capable of saving it. The political parties are setup specifically to prevent one side from making all the decisions, so what you're "Fighting" for isn't even a possibility. Compromise is the only solution save complete government breakdown. And despite however much you might want to see that just to prove the evil liberals were wrong, it would be catastrophically bad for everyone except the 1% that own the majority of this country. And they won't give a single **** about you at that point.

You're fighting the wrong people, but you're completely oblivious to it.

I heard Glenn Beck is building a planned community for people who want freedom. No foolin.

I remember reading an article about it several months ago and kind of laughing at all the rules in place to ensure everyone's freedom.

Good luck in Va. I was born there, it has problems of its own. My youngest child will be out of High School in two years and I can can transfer with my job to almost any state. I can handle extreme Winters but the heat gets to me. I might go to Idaho or just the Pacific Northwest in general.

Maybe we can create forced re-education camps for liberals. Teach them the errors of their ways. If they refuse to give up their evil ways and conform to the tenants of the Right, we'll just shoot 'em in the head, and send their families a bill for the bullet.

One thing that can be learned from this thread is libs hate being challenged on who they are or what they really believe or even understand what today's liberalism/progressivism has evolved in to and that is statism. We've been slowly sliding down that path for decades if not the past century. It's like the frog slowly boiling in the pot syndrome. People won't easily give up their freedoms if it is really known right away what the tyranny of big government brings, hence the frog jumping out of a pot of boiling water. But if you slowly raise the temperature, like slowly taking our freedoms away, the frog won't realize he's cooked before it's too late.

Not sure what it is going to take to get Americans to wake up to the damage all this has done.

But if you slowly raise the temperature, like slowly taking our freedoms away, the frog won't realize he's cooked before it's too late.

Not sure what it is going to take to get Americans to wake up to the damage all this has done.

Gotta blame somebody... and the group to which one belongs is never the group to blame.

I guess you really didn't read what I posted but I will clarify. Statists exist in both parties but let's be honest, they dominate the dem party and much of what influences our culture today. Yes, there is plenty of blame to blame those who support or have supported statism through the years. It is what ails this country. It's simple freedom vs. tyranny. I'll take the most freedoms with the least amount of gov't (much like our Constitution was set up and has been abused for so long) any day.

I certainly don't advocate government control of industry, although I do believe some degree of regulation, especially when it comes to pollutants. Clean air and clean water are important to me. I'm not a fan of the Citizens United ruling. I'm not a fan of the degree of influence certain industries have on our government. I also think there ought to be one representative in the House for every 30-50 thousand people (as originally intended by the men that dew up the Constitution, and it would make it harder for special interests to control).

The political parties are setup specifically to prevent one side from making all the decisions, so what you're "Fighting" for isn't even a possibility. Compromise is the only solution save complete government breakdown. And despite however much you might want to see that just to prove the evil liberals were wrong, it would be catastrophically bad for everyone except the 1% that own the majority of this country. And they won't give a single **** about you at that point.

You're fighting the wrong people, but you're completely oblivious to it.

Quick, since 1960, what battles have the liberals won? Same question for the conservatives.



Liberals have won:

Abortion
Gun control
Homosexual Rights
Political correctness
Welfare
Sexual harassment
Wealth distribution
Open borders
Free health care as a right
Removed God from the schools
SSI expansion
Mass immigration of minorities
Mandatory recycling
Ever increasing CAFE mileage restrictions
Americans with Disability laws run amok
Mandatory benefits for illegal aliens
Disability expansion
Homosexuals in the Boy Scouts
Homosexuals in the military
EPA
Endangered species act
Global warming legislation
Voting without photo ID
Public land placed under UN authority
United Nations World Heritage Sites in the USA


Conservatives have won:

*** sound of crickets ***

The only battles conservatives have one is that 45 states are now "shall issue" concealed carry states and most recreational drugs are still illegal. 2 battles. Only 2 battles won for conservatives.

You tell me who is flushing the nation down the toilet.

Almost EVERY STINKING CHANGE except CCW and drug prohibition has gone the way the liberals wanted it to go and the nation is plunging toward socialist control and social & economic decline. Liberals own this hook, line and sinker. But your great-grandchildren will be the ones who pay the heavier price.
