From the American Spectator:
There is an organic connection between liberalism and lies. Lying is the lifeblood and mother’s milk of liberalism. Liberals and the left lie effortlessly and naturally. They are far more comfortable with lies than the truth. Speaking the truth is almost impossibility for them. It’s in their DNA.* * *
Liberals cannot tell the truth, and in this context the word has two meanings. They cannot tell the truth because what they want to accomplish isn’t what most people want. And they cannot tell the truth because it’s become habitual not to. It is so much a part and parcel of their being that it’s become second nature. They do it without thinking. They actually enjoy lying. It’s their favorite pastime.
They realize that most people will reject liberalism if it is presented honestly and transparently. If they were honest about liberalism they would lose the majority of their supporters. They lie because they have no confidence in their policies. If liberals told the truth, it would be the end of liberalism. They lie because truth does not serve them well. The truth does not help them advance their agenda.
Why does liberalism have to be a lie? At its core liberalism is itself a lie. A central, overarching belief of liberalism is that socialism and centralization of power are beneficial to societies and humanity.
That belief is a lie. It is a lie that permeates and infects all that they say and do. Socialism has been a failure wherever it’s been tried and they know it. They lie to themselves and to everyone else.
They lie because they get away with lying. They succeed because their supporters are gullible.
Arrogance is why they can lie with a clear conscience. It is the widespread application of the end justifying the means. They are so existentially certain that they are right and that their opponents are misguided and ignorant that any strategy is justified. If you have a mindset of needing to tell and force other people how to live their lives, you have to believe that you’re better, smarter, and more informed than they are. Humility is an attitude that never enters their minds.Even their use of the term "liberal" to describe themselves is a lie--they do not support "liberty" any more than their ideological predecessors, Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin, supported "liberty." The very ideas and philosophies which "liberals" want to enact require tyranny. Socialists are responsible for the greatest evils--wars, mass killings and starvation--ever visited on this planet. The most virulent form of Islam truly is a religion of peace compared to socialism.
