E. W. Howe said: “A man will do more for his stubbornness than for his religion or his country.”
If there is one characteristic that defines Liberals—finding just one is tough—it would have to be stubbornness. Liberals live in a museum in which everything is behind a velvet rope, never to be touched. Once something is set into the Liberal dogma, it cannot be altered. All of the circumstances around an idea can change, but the central conceit cannot do so, because that would mean that they were wrong about something. And we know the Left is never wrong; they just misspeak.
The biggest Liberal pet project over the last 15 years has been anthropogenic global warming. Numerous politicians and pundits have poured themselves into making the case for man-made global warming. However, over the last few years, the so-called evidence in support of global warming has come under scrutiny, and has begun to crumble. Now it seems that yet another unfavorable bit of data has emerged.
According to The Daily Mail:
“A chilly Arctic summer has left nearly a million more square miles of ocean covered with ice than at the same time last year – an increase of 60 per cent. The rebound from 2012’s record low comes six years after the BBC reported that global warming would leave the Arctic ice-free in summer by 2013…The disclosure comes 11 months after The Mail on Sunday triggered intense political and scientific debate by revealing that global warming has ‘paused’ since the beginning of 1997 – an event that the computer models used by climate experts failed to predict.”
There is enough solid evidence against man-made global warming that it is becoming more and more preposterous to continue to propagate this myth. Yet the Left continues to push the idea like the case for it is iron-clad. This is Liberal stubbornness.
The average raging Liberal has a mind made of concrete, unwilling and unable to shift focus. This is not only generally unfortunate, but it is dangerous. A political Party whose ideology is set in stone, even against new and compelling evidence, is a hazard to democracy. The life-breath of democracy is the understanding of human nature, and the ability to compile various bits of information to make informed decisions. Without that, it’s just blind voting. And blind voting will lead to the fall of our nation.
The Liberal elites are blind to truth, and so are their followers. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
