In the great online magazine, National Review, David Harsanyi makes the same point we’ve been making for some time: the left is not interested in actual debate. Harsanyi then goes on to detail a good number of the accusations, names, epithets and sneering abuse that leftists hurl at Conservatives caught supporting positions counter to those of the left.
What Harsanyi neglects to say is why leftists are done with debating.
The reason is simple: if the left were to engage in real debate, they lose. Nearly every time. If the left were deprived of sneering and insulting, they’d be reduced to near total silence, because their empty little heads are devoid of substantive arguments for all the major issues of the day.
Sadly, it is those selfsame hollow leftist noggins that fabricated, or caused, all the major issues of the day. All the major issues of today: abortion, environmentalism, income inequality, poverty, hunger, disease, unemployment, ISIS, terrorism, etc. are, without exception, either fabrications of the left (environmentalism, income inequality) or are actually caused by the left’s success at taking and keeping power (abortion, poverty, hunger, disease, unemployment, ISIS, terrorism).
