Daily KOS follows a longstanding Democrat tradition

October 9, 2010

You know what the problem with progressives is?  They are freaking smarter than we are.  Oh, and they have no compunction about playing dirty.  Or smelling bad, but I digress.  You may be saying to yourselves, “No way a dirty hippy liberal is smarter than I am!”  Allow me to challenge your claim with a quote from the Daily Kos (pronounced like gross):

Couldn't find a Daily Kos image, so I improvised.

The goal of Grassroots SEO is to get as many undecided voters as possible to read the most damaging news article about the Republican candidate for Congress in their district. It is based on two simple premises:

  1. One of the most common political activities people take online is to use search engines, mainly Google, to find information on candidates. (For more information, see the Pew Internet and American Life Project’s report on 2008 online political engagement.)
  1. These results of these searches are always in flux based upon hyperlinks anyone posts anywhere on the Internet, including message board comments and social networking sites (but not email).

As a result of this, not only is it possible for us to use our hyperlinks to impact what people find when they search for information on candidates, but we would be foolish not to do so in a way that benefited our preferred candidates. We are already impacting search engine rankings whenever we post any hyperlink anywhere, so we need to make sure the way we use hyperlinks helps result in our preferred political outcomes.

Bada-bing!  Told you they were smarter than us.  Raise your hand if you even remotely thought of this as a way to take back our country from the socialists currently running it.  Yeah, I thought so.

Of course this will go public, and of course they will deflect it, and in the end it won’t matter.  But you gotta give it to the commie bastards, we are mentally incapable of being this devious.  Unfortunately the only way we are going to beat them is by becoming them, because the moral high-ground is not cutting the mustard anymore.  You can’t argue morals with people that have none.

    Good article, Colin. You’re right, it is hard to argue with liberals/progressives. It kind of reminds me of the Dilbert rule of order.

    Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level, and defeat you with experience!

    Sad, but true and it does hamper the discussions we might otherwise have.

      You know I was gonna use that Dilbert quote in a post, but I couldn’t remember it right. It is so fitting for practically every liberal argument.

      Thanks for the kind words and the comments. Your welcome back anytime.

        You’re welcome, Colin.

        It is very hard to make the case for conservatism, smaller government, personal liberty and responsibility, etc., when they will not listen. So much of the time, it sinks into a shouting match, verbally or otherwise, and that gets us all nowhere.

    The majority of liberals are walking talking points, they don’t actually know anything behind the stuff they repeat. The only one’s that can give a cogent argument are locked away somewhere called Universities to teach our children how to be the mindless zombies that most liberal college grads are. Damn do I sound jaded or what?

      I don’t think it sounds jaded when you are telling the truth.

    “You know what the problem with progressives is?” I call them “progressieves” because their ideas and arguments don’t hold water.

      That’s the key to their arguments though, they don’t have to hold water, they are compassionate and we are intolerant. They believe in fairness and we are unfair racists who want to bring down the noble poor who have given so much to society.

      Political correctness is a one way street that controls thought, not speech. We aren’t allowed to call a spade a spade because that is intolerant. Poor people aren’t “freeloaders of the system” they are victims of the rich. Black people can’t be racist because they have no power, ergo only white people can be racist.

      Their ideas and arguments are flimsy and transparent true, but they set the argument. We buy into their premise and thusly always must argue from the platform of being “reactionary”. We have no standing because the good ole’ days of America we all wish for was before the civil rights movement, ergo we are all racists.

      They are masters of manipulation, and until we stop accepting their premises and in all honesty, just start ignoring them and telling Americans the truth without worry about what progressives will say, we are doomed to continue down the path of the destruction of America.
