How to think like a liberal – hint, does not include “get a lobotamy”

March 7, 2011

I believe us conservatives spend a lot of time scratching our heads because we just can’t seem to comprehend why our philosophical foils otherwise known as liberals seem to think so damn different from us.  I will briefly try to explain my understanding of the liberal mindset.

In short, they don’t think.

According to, to think means:

to have a conscious mind, to some extent of reasoning, remembering experiences, making rational decisions, etc.
The key words in this definition are “conscious” and “reasoning”, I will explain how they tie in to the overall theme of this post in a second.  But first, allow me to clarify something.  When I mention liberals, I mean specifically the rank-and-file douches who keep the blank protest placards and a fresh pack of Sharpees in the closet right next to the front-door, ready to be unleashed on the next nefarious plot to ruin the lives of the downtrodden and poor of the world, as long as it doesn’t interfere with the Primetime TV hour.  These liberals are definitely not thinkers, unlike most liberals in office, barring a few examples like people who believe we landed on Mars or that Guam can capsize.  The office-going liberal is most definitely a thinker and a master manipulator, so please do not take your eyes off this most deadly of enemies as I explain the mindset of the lemmings who follow them.
Perhaps the best way to go forth is to embellish a thought process I had this morning.  I was listening to my local talk radio station’s “news on the halves” when a quasi-job report came up.  Specifically, one of the problems facing our companies is that we have a lot of unfilled positions because people are not applying for “skilled” labor jobs, to the tune of about 4.2 million according to online job boards.  Now, here was my gut reaction to hearing this news, “Well, why don’t the companies just hire unskilled people to fill the jobs?”
Rather innocuous statement though right?  Seems like a possibly, maybe, could be good idea.  Okay, here we go.  If I was a standard kool-aid drinking douche liberal, that would have been the end of my thought process.  My brain would have gone all nuclear gut-reaction to the news that evil companies are not hiring the poor jobless of America because they are too greedy to train people to fill the positions, and that is all the thinking I would have done on the subject.  I am sure most of you reading this have experienced similar gut reactions to information heard or seen through radio or television – but this is where the liberal and the conservative differ – we continue to think on the issue.  We don’t settle for our knee-jerk emotional response to information that doesn’t sound right, we continue to stew on it and try to put connections together.  Conversely, the liberal typically does not.
To continue my thought from up above, I easily concluded that companies who could hire people and train them to do a job, would do so if hiring and training someone were more profitable than leaving the position unfilled, simple economic theory.  Remember, a liberal hasn’t even gone here in their head, they stopped at the “evil corporation” idea.  Now, imagine if you were sitting in the car next to a liberal as you both heard this news report, and liberals being liberals, they decided to “fill you in” on their opinion of the topic.  If your response was something to the effect of my conclusion above, then you would receive psycho-hosebeast liberal gut-reaction numero dos, “Well, then the government should make them hire unskilled labor.”
Obviously there is no arguing such pedagoguery…freaking morons.
So there it is in a nut-shell, to think like a liberal, you in essence, need to cease thinking.  Sort of explains MSNBC don’t it?

    Illogical logic is logical to a liberal. How can you fight that?

    • March 8, 2011 1:33 am

      You can’t, that’s why liberals suck so bad.

    Just a day in the life of a lib must be quite a roller coaster ride when you “feel” everything. It’s also interesting how they completely discount the profit motive of business, at least when it’s someone else’s business. Michael Moore’s asinine statement clarifies that.

    • March 8, 2011 1:34 am

      Totally agree on the profit motive comment – it is amazing how they can attribute every motive to a business except the obvious one of the desire to make money.

    So, what you are saying is that, unless you have a vested interest in the Liberal end game (i.e.., politician, media, union leader, academic [not so sure about that one]), if you espouse the liberal line you are incapable of the thought processes necessary to voice a rational opinion. That reflects my personal observations for many years. Liberals that you meet in day-to-day situations just echo the latest talking point that they have received from some talking head. When you question them on their point of view or provide a rational arguement to their subject, they refuse to discuss the issue any further and try to dismiss you as a racist, bigot, etc., etc. ______ “fill in the blank”.

      Yep, the standard liberal is most definitely a non-thinking lemming. Too bad they are taking us all over the cliff with them.

    To a liberal, the statement, “Republicans and conservatives are stupid and evil,” pretty much answers all questions.

    • March 8, 2011 1:36 am

      Yep, its pretty easy to never have to consider one’s own argument when you discount the argument of your opponent as just plain evil and stupid.

    Liberals react with emotion instead of reason and that is why so many of their policies fail over time–they were not well thought out.

    • March 8, 2011 1:38 am

      I have a tendency to agree, but a side of me feels there is a more nefarious plot behind some of the horrible policies they have enacted in the past. The only thing that sort of flies in the face of that thinking is that liberals are typically very “now” oriented, they are not so good at planning for the future, so maybe I am just being overly conspiratorial.

    When you have an ideology carved in granite, rather than a set of values, there’s no need to think. An ideology lays everything out for you. A set of values forces you to think about how your decisions will affect those values.

    My short comments don’t do justice to your posts Fleece Me. This blog is for thinkers-which means you probably don’t have many libs stopping by.

      I am undeserving but very grateful for your praise. Thanks =)

    Not only do they not think about their policies, they also fail to consider the ramifications they will have in the long term. It’s simpler to just do it than it is to think things through and see how they may play out.

      Methinks this all ties into their hate for inheritance as seen in their insatiable desire for the death tax. Are liberals so damn selfish that they really don’t care about the world or their families or their countries after their death? I am starting to believe it is so…very sad.

    My liberal neighbor has a high IQ, but I can’t reason with him. He won’t even let me finish a statement that doesn’t go along with his world view!

    • March 8, 2011 8:12 pm

      Hmm, that’s pretty interesting. To my understanding, IQ is a measurement of one’s capacity for logic and reasoning, so your neighbor is definitely not living up to his score.

    “So there it is in a nut-shell, to think like a liberal, you in essence, need to cease thinking.”


    If anybody out there wants proof that this is true, click on over to see what one itsy-bitsy comment by DaTechGuy unleashed from the bowels of Wonkette and something called Fark:

    Not all leftists are as crude about it. A rare few are even a little respectful (I am thinking of one liberal friend of mine in particular). But ALL share a refusal to accept actual facts and logic when it refutes one of their beliefs. It is at that point that their thinking shuts down, in order to preserve the beliefs.

    Okay I’m rambling now.

    Great post.

    • March 8, 2011 8:14 pm

      Thanks, that was an interesting link as well.

      Liberalism is too much like a religion – when you ask for proof, they demand you have to have faith.

    I find you analysis to be spot-on Colin. Every time I deal with a liberal in a debate that always stop short of the the goal line. It’s almost as if they can’t think beyond a certain point. Once this happens and you proceed further down the thinking highway, they call you names and question your reasoning.

    “To continue my thought from up above, I easily concluded that companies who could hire people and train them to do a job, would do so if hiring and training someone were more profitable than leaving the position unfilled, simple economic theory.”

    The assumptions liberals make are so paper-thin, it’s hard to believe they can tie their shoes without a Pell grant, a Porkulus-funded study and an SEIU rent-a-mob.

    As a former Democrat in my younger years, I can attest to your perspective being just about spot on exactly. I remember passing off talking points like they were facts all the time. I was always guided by emotion alone and would never delve into a story once it crossed beyond how I “felt” about the topic. Asking questions about why things were or how the other side(those evil Republicans) thought was not necessary. As a Dem, we knew how the Republicans thought… it was all about greed and power and self-absorbed opinions meant to keep the little man down. Then I grew up and started reading the stories instead of just the headlines. I didn’t let someone else tell me what to say or how to interpret a topic anymore. I started asking questions and found answers based on truths, realities, and those pesky facts that I was taught to disregard… hence the title of my blog. I got to where I am by asking questions and discovering that my thoughts weren’t coming from me, rather they came from the ideologies driven home by Democrats subjugating their party disciple’s mindsets. Although my opinions today tend to fall in-line with a very conservative mindset, they are my own thoughts and based on critical thinking and reasoning… I discard emotion on the way to finding a proper rationale yet never forget that we are a nation of people from all walks of life.

    I have found that conservatives and Republicans are more genuine in their hearts and their charity then Democrats. Dems talk about the need to take care of the downtrodden and then quickly expect everyone else to do it.
    Analogy: A Democrat will pass a fallen man on the street and start yelling at the government about not doing enough for him. A Republican will see what he has that he can offer to the man down to help him, offer him a ride to the hospital if he needs one, or find him food to eat if he is hungry. Never once does the Republican blame another without first looking to himself to see how he can help out.

    Great piece, Fleece Me… I have come back to this a couple of times and really thought about it a lot in the last couple of days.
