R: “What is not understandable is how so many liberals can blindly ignore 50 years of evidence to the contrary since then.” Some understanding is in Dr. Sowell’s previous statement, “Liberals' devotion to their ideology greatly exceeds their concern about what actually happens to flesh and blood human beings as a result of their ideology.” In order for liberals not to ignore 50 years of evidence [or any amount of evidence, for that matter], they would have to abandon their ideology, and they wouldn’t be liberals if they did. Whenever confronted with a question, the conservative turns to reality; the liberal turns to his ideology, for it is inconceivable to him that reality doesn’t conform to his ideology.
