Here are some common liberal tricks that many people fall for:

  1. When a liberal theory of pseudo-science is disproved or discredited, thay simply change the name (or definition) of the theory to render it impossible to test, as in “global warming” → “climate change.”<ref>Another example is the redefinition of “evolution” to mean “change over time,” which could mean anything.</ref>
  2. Claim a candidate is a racist if his campaign received a small donation (amid thousands of other donations) from someone who might be called a racist.
  3. Distracting and disrupting reasoned discussion, as in stating irrelevant claims, inconsequential tales of personal experience, or false outrage.
  4. Making pseudo-religious arguments even though the person making the arguments does not adhere to the Bible, such as “judge ye not!”
  5. Making arguments that have superficial appeal to the dimwitted, but are actually nonsensical and probably not believed by the liberal himself.<ref>For example, one might conclude that Michael Moore makes silly statements designed to appeal to the less intelligent.</ref>
  6. Try to draw a conservative in to saying or doing something which can then be dishonestly twisted to cast him in a bad light.
  7. So as not to show his true beliefs of supporting evil infanticide and taxpayer-funded abortion, Barack Obama insists he is pro-choice, but not pro-abortion. <ref>Obama, McCain’s Abortion Positions Contrast Sharply at Faith Forum Fox News, August 16, 2008.</ref>
  8. Inserting a liberal assumption into a question, as illustrated by the classic “When did you stop beating your wife?!”
  9. Pretending that liberals do not have a political point of view, but are just being reasonable.<ref>For example, people who insist on promoting abortion with mandatory taxpayer funding claim they are merely “pro-choice”.</ref>
  10. Exaggerating praise for fellow liberals.<ref>For example, liberal praise by law professors for Barack Obama borders on the absurd.</ref>
  11. Pretending that atheism equals intelligence.
  12. In court decisions, holding in favor of the conservative side by using liberal reasons that will be cited for liberal outcomes in future cases<ref>See, e.g., Everson v. Board of Ed.</ref>
  13. Liberals befriending you so that you become liberal. (Conversely, why don't they become conservative?)
  14. Citing “live and let live!” except when it comes to praying aloud in school, keeping the money you earn, building on your own property, and every other liberal issue.
  15. Citing “it doesn't hurt to try!” (In reference to drugs, alcohol, and other immoral behaviors such as premarital sex, worshiping other gods/many gods/no gods, homosexuality, or abortion).
  16. Claiming that because everyone else supposedly believes in something, therefore it must be right.
  17. Claiming that your parents aren't cool; that Hollywood values are cool; that professor values are brilliant; and that you must blindly follow your government.
  18. There is a shortage of everything we want.
  19. Prayer is for dummies, or is antiquated.
  20. Kids are getting smarter than old folks.
  21. Smearing your adversary with a highly offensive accusation or insinuation.
  22. Calling someone a racist if he criticizes a someone who happens to have a different skin color.
  23. Demonizing conservatives and pretending they don't care about regular people.
  24. If you don't like it (something offensive on television), don't watch it (but they don't seem to go for if you don't like whales being killed, don't watch them being killed).
  25. Believing the poor are blameless because they have nothing and the rich are to blame because they have everything.
  26. Accusing conservatives of libel, but forgetting that truth is the perfect defense against libel.
  27. In discounting other point of views, liberals use comparisons of other known “wrong actions” to justify their supposed correct stance. <ref>http://www.universetoday.com/2008/04/07/hanson-earth-at-crisis-point/ , AFP Hansen, Earth At A Crisis Point, April 7, 2008</ref>
  28. Inserting false information, usually lewd into a respected work or group of works.
  29. Defending the assuration that democrats.com is not affiliated with the Democratic party. (We are told as an independent website, Democrats do not control the views of democrats.com.)
  30. Claiming expertise beyond one's area of expertise, as in a “Dr.” or professor implying that he is an expert in an area beyond his specialty<ref>Liberals often cited physicists who had no training or expertise in engineering for their baseless, illogical criticisms of SDI.</ref>
  31. Pretending an honorary degree does not give someone the right to be called “Doctor”.
  32. Pretending affirmative action is the best way to fill positions, including President of the U.S.
  33. Fearing the wrath of voters this election cycle, Democrats have decided not to block offshore drilling bans renewed each October. After the election, Americans get sucker-punched because restoring the ban on new offshore oil drilling leases “will be a top priority for discussion next year.” <ref>Democrat Leader: Restoring Offshore Drilling Ban a ‘Top Priority’ for Next Year CNSNews, September 24, 2008</ref>
  34. Saying “If you believe that abortion is murder, don't have one!” as if abortion isn't undisputably the murder of a human being.

  36. Finding a diverse individual to be appealing or “cool” until they learn that the individual does not conform to their liberal agenda.

  38. Defending the lives of heinous criminals (by opposing capital punishment) while encouraging murder of unborn children (by supporting infanticide, known today as abortion).
  39. Justifying sinful lying by saying “what they don't know can't hurt them.”
  40. Claiming that there exists a Separation of Church and State in the United States (and citing biased Supreme Court decisions to back themselves up) when in reality there exists no such Separation of Church and state in the constitution, and that the Founding Fathers were mostly Christian themselves.
  41. Stereotyping Christians as aggresive nutjubs unless they conform to liberal policies.
  42. Reveal celebrities supporting a dangerous liberal reform, such as introducing same sex marriage which implies that it is the right thing to do.
  43. Portray feminism and women's rights as the same thing. (History reveals the early suffragists being incredibly different to modern feminism).
  44. Claim that Nazism is an example of right wing extremism, when in fact the Nazis cared very little about individual freedom and were not fiscally conservative.
  45. Claim that liberal policies should be pushed even further after a disaster e.g. more gun control after the Columbine Massacre. This leads people into conforming more to liberalism.
  46. Claim that history began with a “Golden Age of Faith” and the future will become fully secular. Studies actually reveal Christianity growing around the world.
  47. Use comments such as “racist!” to silence criticism from Conservatives, regardless of its logic.
  48. Claim that no relationship is loving without casual sex.
  49. If any crime victim is homosexual, then its automatically ahate crime. For example, the Matthew Shepard murder was portrayed as a hate crime by the mainstream media. But the trial of his killers actually revealed them to be drug addicts.
  50. Claim that an act is not sinful if the act is legal under civil law.
  51. Claim that in order for God to exist there has to be someone who created him. Since people are unable to explain this it leads them into conforming to Humanist belief that the universe is self-existing.
  52. Justify immodest dressing or deviant activities by saying “it's the 21st century!”
  53. Put people off marriageby revealing the high divorce rates, without showing the groups most likely to divorce such as those who were married before or cohabited before marriage.
  54. Claim that it is impossible to believe in God without being 'religious' and vice versa.
  55. Appeal to people's emotions rather than there reason. (Hitler practiced this throughout his political career)
  56. Use mockery of conservatives as a way to distract people from conservative values rather than logic.
  57. Label evolution science and creation faith. When in fact evolution is also a faith as its aspects cannot be tested, observed or demonstrated unlike actual science.
  58. Glancing down at “notes” to give the false impression one is not, in fact, reading from a teleprompter.

(please add to the list)

Example

Here is an example of an actual attempt at liberal tricks that was posted on this very page:

The above example (by a non-American) attempts to smear a conservative by implying that he has a mental illness, reflecting liberal trick

  1. 17 above. To someone unfamiliar with liberal tricks, this can be upsetting and intimidating. But once one realizes that this is a basic trick from the liberal playbook, its silliness and ineffectiveness becomes obvious. The liberal's foolish tactic is then revealed for what it really is.

Liberalism can refer to a number of political philosophies derived from Classical liberalism. In this article, the American political platform referred to as “liberal” within the United States is contrasted with other meanings of the word, particularly in Europe and in other parliamentary democratic systems.

  • “Whereas Liberalism is the triumph of emotion over reason (as defined historically), Conservatism is an applied intellectual process; based on observation, deduction, and the study of provable historical fact.” - Sandy Stringfellow<ref>Sandy Stringfellow</ref>
  • Cal Thomas said, “One of liberalism's many problems is that once an idea or program is proved wrong and unworkable, liberals rarely acknowledge their mistake and examine the root cause of their error so they don't repeat it.”<ref>Cal Thomas</ref>
  • Fred Seigel wrote, “Liberalism has become an ugly blend of sanctimony, self-interest, and social connections.” <ref>Fred Seigel</ref>
  • :A distinguishing element of liberalism has been its admiration of autocratic leaders and this explains its embrace of dictators from the likes of the German Kaiser, Lenin and Stalin, through to men like Fidel Castro and his murderous sidekick, Ernesto “Che” Guevera.<ref>The Curse of Liberalism Alan Caruba - September 9, 2013</ref>
  • Michael Savage wrote, “As much as the Left fashions themselves as being progressive, they’re not. In reality, today’s leftist movement is made in much the same way as a sausage—it’s a blend of fascist, Communist, and socialist ideologies from twentieth-century Europe, with a pinch of Nazism, all ground together, yet retaining the flavor of its various parts.”<ref>Quote from ''Liberalism is a Mental Disorder'' by Michael Savage</ref>

Since the definition of liberalism often – but not always – means to advocate for and be open to change, its specific reference depends on specified context. For instance, American liberalism has changed drastically since the 1960s, with liberals then (see: John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr.) advocating for personal responsibility and true liberty, in sharp contrast to modern-day liberals, being very close to leftists, denounce and devalue.

United States

In the U.S. the word liberal is usually used to describe the platform espoused by the Democrat Party, that is, support of social welfare systems, redistribution of wealth, and government regulation of the economy - combined with a certain brand of individual libertarianism, emphasizing social equality, and (to a certain extent, these days increasingly radical) rejection of traditional Judeo-Christian standards of morality as a proper justification for law.

The economic aspects of this ideology are to a large extent a product of the New Deal policies of the Great Depression era, as well as Lyndon B. Johnson's “Great Society.” It also should be noted that a good portion of the Liberal economic philosophy has certain roots in the teachings of Karl Marx, such as the overall focus on social equality and the outrageous rejection of the Judeo-Christian morals. It should be noted, however, that Liberals are not pureblood Communists: Unlike their redder brethren, Liberals are far more insidious and dangerous, as they have successfully infiltrated the American society and now threaten the American way of life.

The Democrat Party's idea of social liberty and equality, though, came much later, partly as a result of the civil rights and counterculture movements of the late 20th century. It continues to be fueled by various youth movements and the interests of numerous special interest groups.

Europe and elsewhere

In Europe, liberalism refers to a political position that leans toward greater individual liberties and less government intervention in general. In short, this is the philosophy closest to classical liberalism, and is commonly referred to in the United States as libertarianism. In Europe and elsewhere, then, the opposite of liberalism is not conservatism, but authoritarianism.

Because of this, the terms “conservative liberalism” and “liberal conservatism”, which are seen as contradictory in the U.S., are not so in Europe. “Conservative liberalism” simply refers to a less radical libertarian philosophy, and is often referred to as “law-and-order liberalism.” Liberal conservatism is simply a variant of conservatism willing to allow for individual liberties, and, in a way, describes the ideology of the American Republican Party. Such examples of this obvious line of thought include the civil rights movement, when the Republican Party (and a few southern Democrats) just wanted to maintain the African American's right to have the choice of forced segregation.

The Liberal Party of Australia is the right-leaning party, in opposition to the liberal Labor Party, and is not to be confused with liberalism as an ideology.

Nazism and socialism

For more information please see: Nazism and socialism, Gun Control in Nazi Germany

was the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazi Party), led by Social Darwinist Adolf Hitler.<ref>http://mises.org/daily/1937</ref><ref>https://creation.com/darwinism-and-the-nazi-race-holocaust</ref><ref>http://www.hourofthetime.com/socialist.htm</ref> ]] The Ludwig von Mises Institute declares:

There is debate about the similarities between Nazism and socialism. Despite whether Nazism is socialist or not, they, with the help of general improvement of economic conditions in Europe, helped propel Germany out of the Great Depression with their economic policy.<ref>http://www.nazism.net/about/economic_practice</ref>

Similarities between Communism, Nazism and liberalism

Communist Manifesto Nazi Party Platform Analysis
1 “Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.” “We demand an agrarian reform in accordance with our national requirements, and the enactment of a law to expropriate the owners without compensation of any land needed for the common purpose. The abolition of ground rents, and the prohibition of all speculation in land.” The stripping away of land from private owners. Liberalism today demands “eminent domain” on property.
2 “A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.” “We demand the nationalization of all trusts…profit-sharing in large industries…a generous increase in old-age pensions…by providing maternity welfare centers, by prohibiting juvenile labor…and the creation of a national (folk) army.” The points raised in the Nazi platform demand an increase in taxes to support them. Liberalism today demands heavy progressive and graduated income taxes.
3 “Abolition of all rights of inheritance.” “That all unearned income, and all income that does not arise from work, be abolished.” Liberalism today demands a “death tax” on anyone inheriting an estate.
4 “Centralisation of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.” “We demand the nationalization of all trusts.” Central control of the financial system.
5 “Centralisation of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.” “We demand that there be a legal campaign against those who propagate deliberate political lies and disseminate them through the press…editors and their assistants on newspapers published in the German language shall be German citizens…Non-German newspapers shall only be published with the express permission of the State…the punishment for transgressing this law be the immediate suppression of the newspaper…” Central control of the press. Liberals today demand control or suppression of talk radio and Fox News.
6 “Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labour in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, &c, &c.” “In order to make it possible for every capable and industrious German to obtain higher education, and thus the opportunity to reach into positions of leadership, the State must assume the responsibility of organizing thoroughly the entire cultural system of the people. The curricula of all educational establishments shall be adapted to practical life. The conception of the State Idea (science of citizenship) must be taught in the schools from the very beginning. We demand that specially talented children of poor parents, whatever their station or occupation, be educated at the expense of the State. ” Central control of education, with an emphasis on doing things their way. Liberals today are doing things their way in our schools.
