“Why are Leftists so unreachable by reason? You can point out holes in their arguments but they are unmoved. And some of their claims are entirely out of touch with reality.”
Australian John J. Ray (M.A.; Ph.D) of Dissecting Leftism asks and then answers the question. He suggests that “sometimes people need false beliefs to make them happy with themselves and with life. Not everyone can face reality head-on.”
Later on in his introduction to another piece he posted, he cites Freud in calling what leftists do “displacement,” meaning that, in their minds, their anger is always caused by something outside of themselves, like injustice for example. Leftists do not want to solve problems though, they want to “luxuriate” in them; they need problems to explain their anger.
And finally, he notes that such false beliefs tend to be deeply entrenched. “The Leftist needs his angry beliefs. He cannot afford to let go of them because compared to his needs, logic/reason is a weak force.”
All of the above brings to mind the obsessive Adam Schiff, the lunatic in my opinion who for three years claimed to have evidence that proved Trump had colluded with the Russians to win the election. That was a big lie. He’s been lying ever since. And now, three years later, even after Trump released the transcript of his phone conversation with the President of Ukraine, Schiff read into the record an entirely fabricated version of said conversation. Who does that? Schiff clearly had written his fake version earlier, never expecting Trump to release the transcript but was so impressed with his own scriptwriting, he could not let go of his opportunity to perform his lie to all those assembled in that room and to the American people. It was a pathetic spectacle.
Did Schiff learn anything from this embarrassing presentation? Not a thing. With each passing failure of the Left’s effort to drive Trump from office, he and his cohorts in the House have doubled down on stupid. The Dems are illogical and unreasonable.
