Alternate reality, that’s where the shitlibs dwell.

It’s not that they are ignorant; it’s that so much of what they know isn’t so
In his famous speech “A Time for Choosing” Ronald Reagan hit the nail on the head about liberals: they have strong opinions based upon complete falsehoods.

This struck me once again as I read a report from The Skeptic Research Center. The goal of the Center is to do research into what people think and provide basic information to increase people’s knowledge regarding important issues of the day. I just ran across this particular piece of research and it caught my eye. You will see why in a minute.

The study in question has to do with Americans’ understanding of race and policing, and the results were rather stunning. It boils down to this: Americans haven’t a clue about the basic facts and liberals in particular live in a world completely divorced from reality.

What we see in the chart is that 22% of liberals think that 10,000 or more unarmed black men are shot by police officers every year. Almost 55% believe that 1000 to 10 or more thousand are gunned down every year.

The answer is 12 in 2019, and 11 in 2020. That doesn’t equate to being a bit inaccurate. It is not being in the same universe as the truth.

Conservatives overestimate the numbers, although about half of them get it right and the rest are not nearly as wrong as the liberals.

Liberals know a lot, but so much of it is simply not true. In no universe is 12 close to 1000-10,000.

This pattern, I am certain, is duplicated across the issues, and my educated guess as to why has to do with trust in the mainstream media. The media creates panic as a matter of course; it is their business model, after all. And since they are liberals they like to create panics that push people to adopt liberal positions.

So they dramatize problems they feel strongly about and create the impression that a problem that bothers them is an existential crisis for the country or the world.

Another factor, besides believing the news media, in liberals being so wrong is that they actually want to believe that certain things are true despite having little to no evidence that they are. They call this “following The Science™,” by which they mean following the witch doctors. They invent facts out of thin air and repeat them endlessly in order to create a reality that doesn’t exist.

And why wouldn’t they, for Pete’s sake? Reality as it actually exists would have to be extremely unpleasant for them, even quite painful, utterly demolishing as it does nearly all of their most cherished beliefs. Which in turn means that, far from being the most intelligent, informed Über-beings on the face of the earth as they consider themselves to be, shitlibs are only delusional asshats—batshit lunatics whose unhinged opinions inspire not awe and respect, but pity and contempt.

Far from being Sages for the Ages, they’re more in line with your average stinking-blotto, muttering street bum, tugging at your sleeve and begging for spare change as you hurry away from his crazy ass, trying to put some distance between you before he flips the fuck out completely and gets violent.

Which, y’know, is another thing shitlibs tend to do, especially these days.

Much, much more at the link—and the hell of it is, you know it’s only the tip of a very large iceberg. Via WeirdDave, who follows up thusly:

I saw another poll that asked what percentage of the population was gay. The most common answer from liberals was between 20-30% (I do not have a link, I am citing from memory). This is the flaw in our system as envisioned by the founders. They never dreamed of a society where the populace was not uninformed, but deliberately misinformed, by a media and educational bureaucracy perverted to perform the opposite of their intended functions.

If they HAD dreamed of such, it would’ve been a nightmare—the scary, sweaty kind you just can’t seem to wake up from, that stays in your head the whole stinkin’ day afterwards.

Notable Quotes

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards."
Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

Claire's Cabal—The Freedom Forums

FREEDOM!!!

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Daniel Webster

“When I was young I was depressed all the time. But suicide no longer seemed a possibility in my life. At my age there was very little left to kill.”
Charles Bukowski

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”
Ezra Pound

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”
Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.”
John Adams

"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
Bertrand de Jouvenel

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged."
GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."
Donald Surber

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved."
Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid."
Dwight D. Eisenhower

"To put it simply, the Left is the stupid and the insane, led by the evil. You can’t persuade the stupid or the insane and you had damn well better fight the evil."
Skeptic

"There is no better way to stamp your power on people than through the dead hand of bureaucracy. You cannot reason with paperwork."
David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine."
Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”
Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it."
NC Reed, from Parno's Peril

"I just want a government that fits in the box it originally came in."
Bill Whittle
