LIBERALISM IS A MENTAL ILLNESS!

September 30, 2005

I realize if you’re liberal and predisposed to bigotry, this post will mean nothing to you. However, if you have not been infected by the illness known as liberalism, this post may be instructive.

By now, I’m sure you have heard about the comments of Bill Bennett which the media and their liberal counterparts have intentionally miscontrued to mislead the uninformed and attack the conservative movement.

Since I don’t get my information from liberals( another word for proprogandists) , or their news outlets(another title for purveyors of proproganda) , I thought it would be interesting to get the truth of the matter from the ‘horses mouth’.

Here’s Secretary Bennett……

Statement By Bill Bennett, Sep. 30, 2005
From the Desk of William J. Bennett September 30, 2005

“On Wednesday, a caller to my radio show proposed the idea that one good argument for the pro-life position would be that if we didn’t have abortions, Social Security would be solvent. I stated my doubts about such a thesis, as well as my opposition to such a form of argument (the audio of the call is available at my Website: bennettmornings.com).

“I then stated that such extrapolations of this argument can cut both ways, and cited the current bestseller, Freakonomics, which discusses the authors’ thesis that abortion reduces crime.

“Then, putting my philosophy professor’s hat on, I went on to reveal the limitations of such arguments by showing the absurdity in another such argument, along the same lines. I entertained what law school professors call ‘the Socratic method’ and what I would hope good social science professors still use in their seminars. In so doing, I suggested a hypothetical analogy while at the same time saying the proposition I was using about blacks and abortion was ‘impossible, ridiculous, and morally reprehensible,’ just to ensure those who would have any doubt about what they were hearing, or for those who tuned in to the middle of the conversation.

“The issues of crime and race have been on many people’s minds, and tongues, for the past month or so–in light of the situation in New Orleans; and the issues of race, crime, and abortion are well aired and ventilated in articles, the academy, the think tank community, and public policy. Indeed the whole issue of crime and race is not new in social science, nor popular literature. One of the authors of Freakonomics, himself, had an extended exchange on the discussion of these issues on the Internet some years back–which was also much debated in the think tank community in Washington.

“A thought experiment about public policy, on national radio, should not have received the condemnations it has. Anyone paying attention to this debate should be offended by those who have selectively quoted me, distorted my meaning, and taken out of context the dialogue I engaged in this week. Such distortions from ‘leaders’ of organizations and parties is a disgrace not only to the organizations and institutions they serve, but to the First Amendment.

“In sum, let me reiterate what I had hoped my long career had already established: that I renounce all forms of bigotry–and that my record in trying to provide opportunities for, as well as save the lives of, minorities in this country stands up just fine.”

Every time I see this kind of despicable behavior from liberals, I thank God that I left the plantation; however I am still ashamed that I ever aligned myself with these scumbags. I was bamboozled!
