Liberalism is an ideology for those that make excuses for every behavior it seems. OK, they Left doe not seem to keen on excusing behavior like owning firearms, or being the least bit proud of being Southern, but most other behaviors? Open season for excuse making! Here are some examples that will astound anyone with a functioning moral barometer
Conservative: Looting and rioting is inexcusable behavior.
Liberal: Yes, but, the rioters are only showing their anger at being victims of Capitalism, Racism, and police brutality, and a lack of jobs in the Black community
Conservative: But their rioting hurts mostly Blacks, destroys Black jobs, and Black businesses.
Liberal: Yes, but these rioters are victims, and we must understand their anger over injustice.
Conservative: Injustice? How is it just to destroy the community you claim to care about?
Liberal: Yes, but Blacks are being hunted down and slaughtered by police!
Conservative: That is simply not true. Most Blacks who are murdered are murdered by other Blacks.
Liberal: Yes, but that is only because of slavery and the legacy Racism that defines America.
See what I mean folks, and it is not just crime and race relations with the Left. Try this one out
Liberal: It is horrible how Israel attacks and kills Palestinians
Conservative: Israel has bent over backwards to have peace, they have made concessions, and only use their military in self-defense after hundreds of rocket attacks, and terror attacks that target Israeli civilians
Liberal: Yes, but Israel has a powerful military, that Palestinians do not. that is not fair.
Conservative: So why don’t the Palestinians stop attacking Israelis then? Israel only responds in order to protect its people. If Hamas stopped its attacks on Israel, there would be peace.
Liberal: Yes, but violence only perpetuates violence. Israel should allow a free Palestine
Conservative: Again, every time Israel gives any concessions, or extends an olive branch, they are attacked, what would you have them do?
Liberal: Yes, but violence only perpetuates violence
At which point the Conservative will throw their hands up, amazed at the moral gymnastics the Liberal is engaging in. Here is one more example
Liberal: There is too much gun violence, we need gun control.
Conservative: Criminals do not obey laws, rendering these “gun control” measures useless. Such laws will only disarm law-abiding people.
Liberal: Yes, but America is awash in gun violence. There are more guns here than in any other country.
Conservative: Yes, we do have more guns here than other nations. America is #1 in gun ownership. But we are #111 in the murder rate. And are far lower than other nations with strict gun laws, nations like North Korea, Venezuela, Honduras, Brazil, and many others. America is not even in the top 100 in homicide rates.
Liberal: Yes, but we have more gun deaths here. Guns are the problem
Conservative: Is it somehow better to be murdered by stabbing, or strangulation than to be shot to death?
Liberal: Yes, but, the NRA wants everyone, even children, even criminals to have guns
Conservative: That is patently false. The NRA has always supported gun safety, gun training, and responsibility.
Liberal: Yes, but so many children are accidentally killed by guns every year, If common sense gun laws just saved one life…………
Conservative: Accidental gun deaths are actually very low, among adults and children. Far more people drown, die in falls, choke to death or die from a medical error than perish in firearm-related accidents. Should we ban stairs in homes? Climbing trees? Swimming pools? Eating? Hospitals?
Liberal: Yes, but you are paranoid, a gun nut, I choose not to live in fear, besides people do not use guns in self-defense.
Conservative: Paranoid? Tell me, do you lock your doors? Have flood insurance? Do you own a watchdog? Do you own a fire extinguisher? Does having those things make you paranoid? No, they help make you prepared. We have those things not expecting to ever use them, but in case we do. And, studies and crime stats show many, many Americans, use firearms in self-defense every year. Guns are used far more often to stop crimes than to commit crimes.
Liberal: Yes, but violence only leads to more violence
Conservative: I give up!
Yep, you might as well go head butt that oak tree out back folks
