Back in January, I started a series here at Biblical Conservatism on Liberal Rhetorical Tactics called liberal Rhetoric 101. Today, I want to briefly review what we've learned so far:
In our first topic, we discussed The Fallacy of the Single Cause, specifically discussing how liberals like to attribute the economic boom solely to President Clinton's 1993 tax incraese.
In Appeal to Ridicule, we talked about the liberal practice of insulting their opponent and making them feel stupid for daring to disagree with liberalism. As if my examples within the article weren't sufficient, two liberals actually felt the need to prove my point for me!
In Political Correctness we talked about the liberal practice of controlling how people talk and think by saying certain words/ideas are off-limits because they're "offensive."
In False Equivalency, we discussed how liberals incorrectly compare something a liberal politician wants to implement to something that a historic conservative did that was successful.
In False Cries of Racism we talked about how liberals just cry "racist!" to stop debate.
In Memes we talked about liberal repetition of catch phrases that have no basis in truth so people begin to believe they are reality.
Finally, we discussed Compassionate Intentions (No results required), the liberal practice of focusing only on the intentions of a program and not the results of it.
We will continue our series Liberal Rhetoric 101 later this week. Thanks for reading!
