I have been saying for some time, now, that Leftists are accidental masters of unintentional irony, double standards, and for that matter, double-speak. This essay illustrates in hilarious but pointed fashion! You just can’t make this stuff up…
“It’s important, I’m told, to be respectful of opposing beliefs. We mustn’t be dismissive of viewpoints that differ from our own. We mustn’t condescend.
“It’s just that I have trouble putting this into practice. God forgive me. The problem is that the Left’s arguments are often so convoluted, absurd, and self-defeating that I couldn’t take them seriously if I tried. And I have tried. But when I follow one of their philosophical threads to its logical conclusion, I discover that the thread has no conclusion. It suddenly splits in another direction, and another, and another, and when I step back all I see is a tangled web of contradictions. What choice do I have but to be dismissive? All that one can do with nonsense, in the end, is dismiss it.”
All too sadly true. So, my question is: are they truly insane? Or are they “crazy like a fox,” and is all of this just part of an elaborate plot to drive the rest of us insane…?
