Yesterday, I confronted a liberal w/ facts, widely available on the internet, that contradicted his statement that Obama's mother was denied health care for cancer treatment, a lie pushed by our president. I thought this liberal would want to learn the truth, but instead, he bristled at my comment, and affirmed, "I believe what I want to believe". I told him that by ignoring facts, he was complicit in spreading a lie. At that point he went on to scream, "This is why you cannot have a civil conversation with Republicans. All they do is call you names." Breitbart was a true journalist, digging for truth, not dirt. He knew early on what I still grapple to accept: Liberals cannot accept truth when it contradicts their ideological bent. And when they do change their stance, for instance embracing patriotism as many fearful liberals did following 9/11, in short order they will revert back to an ideological agenda, as was visibly obvious when their American flags come down all over the neighborhood. At that point, they had put on the blinders and were back in full swing, disregarding the truth.
T-Bill: This was so well put that I copied your brief words in anticipation of flinging them at my leftist acquaintances. I really thought that 9/11 would permanently alter the dialogue about whether radical islam was seeking our destruction. The terrorist acts perpetrated that day, and joyous response by muslims worldwide, was proof to me that even non-radical islamists were enabling terrorist behavior. The left will only rally around our country and its citizens just long enough to accumulate sound and video-bites to assure patriotism later on when it suits their needs. The left invests heavily in tearing down our country and our Constitution. That is why they are such strident apologists for those who would destroy us . . . they all want the same things.
Once they take the assault rifles, they'll point to some video of skilled trick shooter getting off 6 rounds out of his revolver in under 3 seconds as proof that we gotta get rid of revolvers. No matter the soundbite, the goal of the left is to disarm American citizens. This statement: "When the left reaches across the isle, they're taking your wallet." In the case of guns, they'll reach across the isle to take assault weapons & semi-autos, then pumps, revolvers, slide actions, bolt actions, ammo, pellet guns, bb guns, squirt guns, nerf guns. Then only criminals [and their allies in government] will have guns.
It's actually even more insidious than that. In fact, criminals can steal your legal weapons, commit crimes, then turn them in for "cash back". The guns are never returned to the rightful owners, even though they were registered to them at the time of purchase. Many fine weapons, some with historical significance, some that are handed down from generation to generation, are simply destroyed. The agencies sponsoring the "buy back" don't bother. This is not a "buy back", it is lawless thievery nd it's a win/win for criminals and their leftist/liberal/progressive/statist allies.

That is the real point after all, isn't it?

Ann, as usual you are spot on about your analysis of the cherry-picked data used by the left. Mother Jones magazine is much more dangerous than any hi-cap magazine used in any weapon. Along with it's allies in the MSM, Mother Jones presents a purposefully distorted world view, tactics that are eerily similar to those used by the left and the current lawless administration.
