What I Have Learned From Debating Young Liberals

In the recent months, I have been engaged in political debates with liberals mostly under the age of 40 (I am over the age of 40). These debates have taken place in person, via email and political discussion blogs. In each occurrence, I was contacted or confronted by the individuals who wanted to engage in discussions with me. I was personally contacted and invited to participate in discussions on a blog that repost some of my articles. However, after each round of discussions, I am saddened with the realization that our great country is in deep trouble if today’s young liberals are America’s future.

The first thing that is quite evident is that the liberal institutions have done a good and thorough job in indoctrinating our young people. The liberal professors have taught them to view America through the lens of the past rather than the present. This trick has caused these individuals to be filled with anger at an America that does not exist (an America that they themselves were not alive to experience). Every issue that is discussed is based on the false premise that every negative thing that happened in past (slavery, Jim Crow, The Southern Strategy) is influencing everything that is happing in the present (i.e. Voter ID laws, Ebola).   However, there is never any mention of all the positive things that happened in the past that continues to make America great today. It is as though they believe that the American people are programmed robots void of the ability to think or make decision for themselves based on current issues.

While engaged in discussions, I have learned that liberals do not read. When commenting on my articles, liberals have accused me of saying things that are not in the article or they will question something that is answered in the article. How is it possible to make angry comments about something that you have not read?  This reveals to me that they probably do not read anything that they believe goes against the liberal narrative. Maybe liberals would learn something if they would just read. It is as though they read titles and then go straight to the comment section. This also happens in dialog on the discussion blog. I will reply to a question that someone has posted and in that individual’s response, he or she will ask me the same question again. The same thing happens in email conversations, I end up responding by rewriting the same thing.

Liberals tend to put words in the mouths of others. It is one thing to be in a face to face verbal conversation with someone and claim that he or she said something. For example, if I am talking really fast and someone says that I said something that I cannot remember saying, there is a chance that he or she might get away with putting words in my mouth. However, if one is engaged in a written back and forth conversation, you would think that an individual would not attempt to put words in the other person’s mouth because the conversation is documented. Nonetheless, liberals will still attempt to put words in the mouths of others when it can be easily verified in the preceeding comment or email.

The most disheartening thing that I have learned about liberal young adults is they lack breadth on the issues that they claim to be well informed on. The liberal media and universities are to blame for this. These individuals only learn liberal talking points. When they are presented with facts that destroy the narrative, they just move on to the next talking point without even acknowledging the facts or they start attacking you. The next step in the cycle is the projection. They begin to accuse you of everything that they actually believe (attempt to put their thoughts in your head).  This makes me wonder what the goal of liberals is. How can a person go through life parroting talking points? What is going to happen to the individual when he or she is faced with reality? Most importantly, what is going to happen to America with these individuals as future leaders?
