The [falsely claimed]
moral superiority of the left always leads them to justify the means by the ends.
Sure. There is more than one way to explain liberal dementia syndrome. Coulter has put a big dent in the topic in her books. So have others. On this forum, since its inception, liberal dementia has been reduced to any number of theorems, metaphors and analogies.
Ends justifies the means? Yup.
-They "know" they are "emotionally right," thus virtuous, so if you disagree, you must be evil.
-They "know" they are "emotionally right." So, it's different when they do it, and not hypocrisy.
-Since they emotionally right, and can't be hypocrites, it's OK to hate, while criticizing others as "haters," to discriminate while complaining about discrimination.
-They know they can't sustain a rational debate, so they change the subject, or inundate with red herrings and outliers.
-They know they can't sustain a rational debate, so they criminalize the thought and vocabulary necessary to reveal the truth.
-And one of the oldest saws, one that has been demonstrated here, they can't give a straight answer to a simple question (if it is Socratic and designed to expose their fallacies).
I only say all of this, because now that there are two us, the case of liberal dementia that I have been interviewing is much less likely to return and say again how "right" he, and again without offering any rational explanation. It's hard enough form him to hide behind his Maginot Line with me, because I am not coming "from the right." With you on the field, he is going to get caught in a crossfire.
All he would have to do to save time and keystrokes is just say he is hater and he hates Trump with all his "soul" That is, tell the truth and acknowledge his subjectivity. If I responded at all, it would be to think him for his honesty. It would make him, by my estimate, about the third honest liberal I ever heard from.
