20 Obvious Lies That Will Shock Conservatives (If They Ever Bothered To Read A Book Or Two)

Whenever conservative bloggers try to be clever and “expose” liberal myths, you just know it’s time to pull out the rain coat, ’cause there’s gonna be a whole lot of bullshit flying around. The latest example of this is John Hawkins’ “20 Obvious Truths That Will Shock Liberals” whose real title should be “20 Easily Disprovable Stories That Conservatives Chumps Buy Hook, Line & Sinker.” Let’s take a look shall we?

1) The Founding Fathers were generally religious, gun-toting small government fanatics who were so far to the Right that they’d make Ann Coulter look like Jimmy Carter. That’s nice. They also thought leeches could cure illness. Does that mean we should stop advancing medicine or building on their ideas for a better future? I’ll keep this mind the next time some gibbering buffoon demands that “original intent” be the only guide for interpreting the Constitution. The original intent of the Founders was that slavery was just fine, black people counted as only 3/5 of a man and women couldn’t vote at all. Let’s get back to basics!! Warning: you might find that women and African-Americans have some objections.

As for “small government?” Pure ignorance. They had laws dictating what kind of public behavior was acceptable and what size barrel could be used to transport food stuffs. Small government? Don’t make me laugh.

2) The greatest evil this country has ever committed isn’t slavery; it’s killing more than 50 million innocent children via abortion. Tell that to a slave. But, in reality, abortion is a very complicated issue. Far more complicated than the bumper sticker mentality of your typical conservative can process. I’ll help conservative make their case, though. All a conservative has to do to convince me that they truly consider abortion to be the murder of a human being is explain to me why they do not have a funeral for miscarriages and demand a death certificate be issued.

Good luck with that.

3) Conservatives are much more compassionate than liberals and all you have to do to prove it is look at all the studies showing that conservatives give more of their money to charity than liberals do. Only a conservative can equate money to compassion. You’re pro-death penalty, pro-war, anti-gay, anti-universal healthcare, anti-Medicare, anti-Medicaid, anti-Social Security but you give some money to a church that might use it to feed the homeless but could just as easily use it (and millions more) to deny gay couples the right to marry. Therefor, YOU are more compassionate than a liberal who wants an end to war and poverty.

hah…ahahah…ahahahahahha…bwahahahahahahaAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!

(the author must take a break to catch his breath)

4) When the Founding Fathers were actually around, there were official state religions and the Bible was used as a textbook in schools. The so-called “wall of separation between church and state” has absolutely nothing to do with the Constitution and everything to do with liberal hostility to Christianity. Ah, the old “America is a religious country” bit. And to a conservative, that can only mean “Christian.” Here’s a fun fact about the Founders: to them, religious did not mean “Christian,” a very subtle nuance that seems to escape conservatives even when they read quotes from Jefferson like “Christianity neither is, nor ever was a part of the common law” or from the Treaty of Tripoli signed in 1797 that states: “As the Government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquillity, of Musselmen (Muslims); and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.”

That is directly from the mouths of the people who created the country. It literally cannot be stated more clearly than that.

5) The biggest problem with our economy today is Barack Obama. His demonization of successful people, his driving up gas prices, his regulatory overload and threats to increase taxes have terrified businesses into hunkering down, refusing to spend money, and declining to hire new people. Replacing him would do more than any government policy to spur economic growth. Funny how American gas prices have mirrored the fluctuations of the world market precisely. I guess President Obama controls the entire oil market single-handedly. It’s also amazing, how, despite the fact that we’re supposed to “drill, moron, drill,” the United States is now a net oil exporter. That’s right, we sell more oil than we take in but gas prices are still going up. I have yet to meet a conservative that can honestly explain why that is. As for refusing to spend money, why is it that no conservative can ever tell me WHAT corporations should spend the money on? Hire more people to do…what? Fill demand? They’re already filling what demand there is. More employees won’t fill it any better. Despite this, the unemployment rate has steadily (if slowly) declined under Obama as opposed to skyrocketing under the conservative policies that the right pretends didn’t cause the crash in the first place.

6) Not only are conservatives more patriotic than liberals, but most American liberals “love” America in about the same way that a wife-beater loves his wife. In 2008, a black man was elected to the White House in a fair and open election. It was not a suspiciously close vote that required the conservative Supreme Court to stop a recount and give the election to the Republican candidate. The Democratic Party won a super majority in the Senate (but only for eight months) and a large majority in the House. What did the “patriotic” right do? Immediately started to scream that it wasn’t fair and it wasn’t right and they wanted their country back. The GOP (ab)used the filibuster more than any other time in history, death threats against the president spiked and right-wing militias dramatically increased in numbers, along with foiled plots to start a revolution. Right Wing politicians started talking about secession and “second amendment remedies” and Rush Limbaugh stated, publicly and repeatedly, that he hoped Obama would fail.

If THAT’S what a conservative considers “patriotism,” they’re delusional. Patriotism is more than wearing a lapel pin. It’s more than polishing your gun and swearing to shoot the first federal agent that steps foot on your land. It’s more than wrapping yourself in the flag while screaming “I hate that nigger!” at Fox News. It’s more than being against something. You have to stand for something besides your own petty little needs. Conservatives have forgotten this, if they ever knew it the first place.

7) Out of every 100 cries of “Racism” you hear these days, 99 are motivated by nothing other than politics. That would be because they are directed at Republican politicians and pundits passing around racist emails, calling President Obama a skinny little crackhead or man-child and demanding to see his “real” birth certificate because being born to an American mother and a Kenyan father magically makes you “not American” despite several past (white) presidents having a foreign national as a parent. When the Right stops using the Southern Strategy of racial resentment that they have flat out stated that are using, we’ll stop calling them racist.

8) Anyone paying income taxes is certainly paying his “fair share” — and then some — compared to the people who pay nothing. When the rich paid a 90% marginal tax rate, the rich still got richer but the economy boomed. The less the rich paid, the richer they got but the worse the economy did. So let me ask you this: How is it “fair” when the rich take the most from the economy but give less, as a percentage of their profits, than the rest of us back to that economy?

9) You don’t have a “right” to anything that other people have to pay to provide for you. Then you do not have the right to police protection, a fire department or even a 911 emergency line. You do not have the right to clean air or safe food. You do not have the right to a military to protect you from foreign invasion. You do not have the right to a single thing that is government-run. Oh? What’s that? You pay taxes so you deserve all of those things?

Exactly, you stupid bastard. If everyone else was not chipping in, i.e. “paying to provide for you,” you would not be able to afford all that nifty stuff. It’s called “socialism” and only very stupid people think they are completely self-sufficient.

10) If we can ask people to present an ID to buy alcohol, drive a car, or get on an airplane, then asking them to present identification to vote is a no-brainer. Only a conservative could debase the right to vote by comparing it to getting drunk. Liberals hold their franchise to a higher standard, apparently. Tell me again how liberals are the ones that hate what America stands for?

11) There’s absolutely nothing that the government does smarter, better, or more efficiently than the private market with roughly equivalent resources. Except be held accountable to the people of the United States of America. The conservative push to privatize everything is the rush on Lemmings going over a cliff. It is a fact that terrifies conservatives that when you add a “for profit” motive to basic necessities like health care and military contractors, the inevitable result, proven again and again, is corruption, theft of taxpayers dollars on a grand scale and reduced service. As long as the bottom line is the true goal, we, the people are a secondary consideration. Unless, of course, you want to make the argument that a multinational corporation has the best interests of the consumer in mind.

Good luck with that, too.

12) The biggest problem with education in this country is liberals. They fight vouchers, oppose merit pay, refuse to get rid of terrible teachers, and bend over backwards to keep poor kids trapped in failing schools. The Gordian Knot of education reform has so far eluded both liberals andconservatives. Guess what, though? No Child Left Behind was an abject failure. You know what else doesn’t work? Cutting school budgets in an attempt to “prove” public education doesn’t work. Vouchers haven’t provided better results but it HAS exacerbated the problem. Try again.

13) Fascism, socialism, and communism are all left-wing movements that have considerably more in common with modern liberalism than modern conservatism. Oh noes! Socialism! Communism! Fascism! Conservatives don’t know what these words mean so they lump them all together!! And they’re scary words!!! Communism is when the government controls the means of production and dictates what gets produced in what quantities. Mainstream liberals do not advocate this. Socialism (the american version, at least) is when everyone gets to enjoy the fruits of out collective labor. The interstate highway system is SOCIALISM. National monuments and parks are SOCIALISM. The public education system is SOCIALISM. Community colleges are SOCIALISM. The police and fire departments are SOCIALISM. Medicare is SOCIALISM. Social Security is SOCIALISM. My god! The word “social” is right there in the name!!!

Let me know how many of those SOCIALIST programs you’re willing to do without.

Fascism is a movement predicated on rabid nationalism (America is for REAL Americans), racism (White Power), isolationism (build the dang fence!), political violence (militias) and wars of aggression (Iraq). Now, which political movement does that sound like? Sure doesn’t sound like any liberals I’ve ever heard of!

14) The Democratic Party was behind slavery, the KKK, and Jim Crow laws. It was also the party of Margaret Sanger, George Wallace, and Bull Connor. It has ALWAYS been a racist party. Even today, white liberals support Affirmative Action and racial set-asides because they still believe black Americans are too inferior to go up against whites on an even playing field. My god! You’re right! I Agree completely. The Dixiecrats were a bunch of racist scumbags. They did fight against equal rights for blacks. Those Democrats were terrible, vile racists!

Hey, did you know, that after the signing of the Civil Rights Act, all of those racist Democrats that we just agreed were absolute scum left the Democratic Party? Yeah, they became Republicans.

History didn’t stop after the 1960s.

15) A man with good morals who falls short and becomes a hypocrite is still a far better man than a liberal who can never be called a hypocrite because he has no morals at all. And what lack of morals is that? Do liberals commit more crimes? “Blue” states, by and large, have a lower crime rate than “Red” states. Do we get divorced more often? Again, Red states outstrip Blue. Do we get pregnant at a younger (unmarried) age? Sing with me now, “Red trumps Blue!” Do liberals threaten political violence on a regular basis the way conservatives do? Nope. Who commits the most hate crimes in the country? Liberals or conservatives? Who encourages unsafe sex, thus increasing the number of abortions and the transmission of STDs? Conservatives. Who cheer the death penalty knowing, for a fact, that innocent men get executed? Conservatives. Who wanted to continue the war in Iraq that saw tens of thousands of children killed by American bombs? Conservatives.

Seriously, you think conservatives are moral? Why? Because you’re Christian and everyone knows that all liberals hate Jesus? There are serial killers out there that display a healthier set of morals than the freak show that is the Fox News audience.

16) The most dire threat to America’s future and prosperity in the last 150 years hasn’t been the Nazis, the Soviets, or Al-Qaeda;, it’s the spending and overreach of our own government. You mean the out of control spending of the Republicans? I agree! Reagan roughly tripled the deficit. Bush 42 actually tried to curb it and was punished by his own party for doing so. Clinton balanced it two years in a row and was on track to erase the national debt in a decade. Bush 44 sent the deficit into the unheard of territory of $1 trillion+ with his $700 billion tax cut, two wars and the Medicare Part D corporate giveaway. None of which were paid for or offset. We still have those tax cuts, one war (now a part of the budget like it should have been the whole time) and Medicare Part D. How is it Obama’s fault again that the deficit is outrageous?

Just as history didn’t stop in the 1960s, it also didn’t just start when Obama was sworn in. Almost 30 years of the conservative one-two punch of “cut taxes and deregulate” under the guise of “trickle down” have crushed the economy. But let’s blame the black guy!!

17) Greed isn’t someone wanting to keep more of what he earns; it’s people demanding a greater share of money that someone else earns. Greed isn’t when you want to secure the health and prosperity of others; greed is when you put your own self-interest above the good of the whole.

Conservatives have isolated themselves in a bubble of rhetoric in which no one is accountable to anyone else. That is not how a society works. It is not how human beings work. It’s not even how the Bible they claim to worship works. It is, however, how a child thinks. The right suffers from infantilism. They even throw temper tantrums when they don’t get their way in the form of the Tea Party and filibusters. Time to grow up, kiddies.

18) Most of the time in American politics, the liberal “victim” is really a bad guy who is absolutely delighted by the opportunity to pretend to be “offended.” Interesting hypothesis. Of course, you must mean that “a bad guy” is someone who has been insulted, belittled or discriminated against because of their race, religion, gender or sexual orientation. They sure are “bad guys” for taking offense! The nerve of them, wanting to be treated with respect!

On the other hand, conservatives thrive on being offended when they’re told they can’t insult, belittle or discriminate against others because of their race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.

Only a conservative could feel oppressed because they can’t inflict their hate on others.

19) Jesus Christ was not a conservative, a liberal, or a politician. He was also not a capitalist or a socialist. Still, you can say this: Jesus drew sharp lines about what’s right and wrong, he wasn’t tolerant of what the Bible categorizes as sinful behavior, and there’s absolutely no question that he would adamantly oppose abortion and gay marriage. Really? Please cite, chapter and verse, where Jesus says he is against gay marriage and abortion. While you’re struggling to find a verse you can creatively interpret to mean “protect the unborn” and “persecute fags,” here’s a few verses that clarify Jesus’ stance on capitalism as practiced by the 1%:

”Matthew 19: 23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. 24: And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

“Luke 16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and Mammon.

I think it’s quite clear what Jesus thought about the mindless acquisition and hoarding of wealth that is THE defining characteristic of American capitalism.

20) When you demand that other people fund your sexual escapades by buying your contraception, your sex life becomes their business. Ok, make you a deal. We’ll stop pestering insurance companies about contraception when you stop making laws against homosexuals. Think you can do that? Think you can stop making other people’s sex lives your business? No? What a shock. Conservatives are hypocrites. I never would have guessed.

    Well, they were anti-gun weren't they?
    “Let your gun be your constant companion on your walks. This gives exercise to the body and independence to the mind. No free man shall ever be de-barred the use of arms.” ---- Thomas Jefferson

    See, people back then, and really up until about the mid 1900s believed that you had duty to protect yourself and your loved ones.
    Then the cowardly started trusting their lives and the lives of their loved ones to "the kindness of strangers" (the police), never realizing that law enforcement HAS NO DUTY TO PROTECT INDIVIDUALS.
    “Law enforcement agencies and personnel have no duty to protect individuals from the criminal acts of others.” -Lynch vs North Carolina Department of Justice 1989

    This means that if you want protection from violent crime, for you and your loved ones; it’s up to YOU and YOU ALONE to provide it.

    But justin filthy liberal scum rosario needs to think about this, in his heart of hearts: Why should a cop risk his life to save something so insignificant (your life or the lives of your loved ones), that even the owner is unwilling to protect it?

    "The original intent of the Founders was that slavery was just fine, black people counted as only 3/5 of a man and women couldn’t vote at all."

    And justin filthy liberal scum rosario wore diapers! HELLO! This is TODAY and things change. (You DON'T still wear diapers do you? My apologies if you do.) Remember AMENDMENTS to the Constitution to correct wrongs?

    Women not being allowed to vote was very common in that time, as it is in many countries TODAY. Black men were allowed to vote before women were.
    Again, "This is TODAY and things change, remember AMENDMENTS to the Constitution to correct wrongs?"

    As for slavery.
    Slavery was an accepted practice of that time, dating back before recorded history, there was never a time prior that slavery wasn't practiced, even the American slaves themselves were bought from fellow Africans slave owners, just as slaves are available for purchase in Africa today.
    The 3/5th was the North's idea, so that the South wouldn't be able to use its large population of Blacks to support Southern ideas and receive fair representation of political power. (Unfair representation was one of the issues of the war called the Civil War.)

    Progressive/Liberals believe in slavery today, oh they don't call it that. They put a pretty name on it so that it's more palatable, but "a rose by any other name . . ."
    What is slavery really? Most would consider slavery the forced labor of one that labors/produces that has the benefits produced by their labor, taken away and give to a second party that has done nothing to produce that benefit or gives the producer something in return for their labor.
    If I were legally forced, at the crack of a whip or point of a gun to plow and plant and harvest your fields 8 hours or more a day, then give you all the proceeds of what I produced; would that be slavery? Most would agree that it was.
    Most people would consider it slavery, even if I was forced to work MY OWN LAND, if I were legally forced, at the crack of a whip or point of a gun to plow and plant and harvest fields on MY OWN LAND 8 hours or more a day, then give you all the proceeds of what I produced.
    Would it be slavery if I were allowed to keep a part of what I produced, but the rest was taken at gunpoint for another that gives me nothing in return?
    Like the 47% who pay nothing, while demanding that "The Rich", be forced at the point of a gun, to "Pay their fair share!"

    justin filthy liberal scum rosario states: "They also thought leeches could cure illness. Does that mean we should stop advancing medicine or building on their ideas for a better future? I’ll keep this mind the next time some gibbering buffoon demands that “original intent” be the only guide for interpreting the Constitution."

    Pretty smug comment considering that most Liberals, TODAY, believe in the equivalent of "if a pretty girl kisses a frog, it will turn into a handsome prince!" only they call it "Evolution". It goes like this: "sterile sludge, will turn into living micro organisms, which will change into an amphibian, which will change into a reptile, which will change into mammals, which will change into a primate, which will change into a man! But instead of a kiss, it only takes time!
    Operating within the boundaries of a legal document, has nothing to do with other factors not related to that document. (What about medicine and leeches is covered by the Constitution in any way? What COULDN'T be covered under STATE laws?)
    However, leeches are currently used in modern medicine.

    The Constitution is a SIGNED LEGAL CONTRACT, just like any signed legal document , it means what it says, not just what one party wants it to mean at the time or later. (You did know the Constitution was a signed legal document, didn't you?)
    As with most signed legal document, there are ways to CHANGE the document: Amendments.
    To simplify: If you bought a car from me and signed a legal contract were you were to pay me $300 a month for 5 years; I couldn't simply say "Hey dude! I should be getting $600 a month, 'cause I want more stuff!" and you be forced to pay it.
    A signed legal document must mean what it states, or it's not worth the paper or parchment it's written on.

    justin filthy liberal scum rosario states: "As for “small government?” Pure ignorance. They had laws dictating what kind of public behavior was acceptable and what size barrel could be used to transport food stuffs. Small government? Don’t make me laugh."

    Do you even realize, that almost all if not all of that, was covered under the laws of the STATES and NOT the Federal Government until about the 1900s?
    No of course not.

    More later, when I have time to waste on justin filthy liberal scum rosario's ignorant drivel.

    THIS IS NOT TRUE, AND FURTHERMORE, YOU KNOW IT....THE THREE-FIFTHS CLAUSE WAS CLEARLY DESIGNED TO LIMIT THE POLITICAL POWER AND LEGISLATIVE INFLUENCE OF THE SLAVE STATES. IT WAS TO COUNT EVERY FIVE SLAVES AS THREE, THUS "THREE FIFTHS" (60%) OF THE SLAVE POPULATION WOULD BE COUNTED FOR REPRESENTATIONAL PURPOSES. IT HAD ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THE VALUE OF A HUMAN BEING AND TO INFER OTHERWISE IS IGNORANCE AT BEST OR, AT WORST, BLATANT HYPOCRISY. YOU TRY TO STEER THE UNEDUCATED TO DEVISIVENESS....SHAME ON YOU FOR YOUR SOUR AGENDA! SHAME!

    I agree with some of what the author has written. However, does one really need to be so incredibly sarcastic? Even though I agreed, the tone tended to put me on the defensive. Dropping the attitude and explaining in a helpful manner your side of a question is more apt to really be heard by someone with an opposing viewpoint. Just sayin'...

    You are so biased, first of all. Secondly, why do we need to demand for funerals and death certificates to declare abortion a murder? That doesnt make any difference, it's still a murder. And, you do realize our country was founded on Christianity. Protestantism, more specifically. And, the leeches for curing disease? I'm pretty sure they were past that after the plague. It was all about bloodletting. Correct me if I'm factually wrong, feel free. And really "if they bothered to read a book or two?" hmmm, thats why my obsession is reason Sherlok Holmes currently, right? Because I don't read or anything. That's all I got, I was tired of reason all your biased boloney.

    The only thing that would shock me is that any of you trolls will ever take your noses out of your left wing blogs that feed you your daily talking points and engage with the real world for once in your lives.
    At least the author of this hack list of distortions and cheap shots made one personally honest statement:
    "hah…ahahah…ahahahahahha…bwah...
    Yes, I know you're running on insanity. Thank you for confirming it.

    When your family or friends can't explain why they voted Democrat, show them this list. Then the can pick out a reason from this "Top 12".

    1. I voted democrat because I believe oil companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn't.

    2. I voted democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

    3. I voted democrat because Freedon of Speech is fine as long a nobody is offended by it.

    4. I voted democrat because I'm way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers an thieves.

    5. I voted democrat because I believe that people who can't tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don't start driving a Prius.

    6. I voted democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefirs, and we should take away the social security from those who paid into it.

    7. I voted democrat because I'm not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmated alive.

    8. I voted democrat because I believe that business should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even a give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the democrats see fit.

    9. I voted democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never gert their agendas past the voters.

    10. I voted democat because I think that it's better to pay billions to people who hate us for their oil, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher or fish.

    11. I voted democrat because while we live in the greatest, most wonderful country in the world, I was promised "HOPE AND CHANGE".

    12. I voted demorat because my head is so firmly planted up my butt, it's unlikely that I'll ever have another point of view.

    Actually IF you read the first several drafts of the constitution Slavery was to be abolished, The 3/5th compermise was to be addressed again in 10 years with the thought that once established in trade slaves wouldn't be needed as there would be plenty of prisoners and indentured servants comingto the USA. Women who owned land could vote (same requirement as men) and were expected to be the primary educators for children who would be voting.

    The ratification process of the FOUNDERS orginal intent document is what created the watered down version we ended with and still we managed to FIX all those issues it simply took 87 seven years which considering teh divid really wasn't very long. France who modled their constitution after ours still hasn't fix all its problems. and its been 200 years

    Hello:

    I didn't take the time to read all this bull---t. If your quoting the bible then I know it's all bull---t. It's time to understand what you are actually reading. I can see if you posted what you are reading, you don't understand what you are reading. You need a view other than religious to understand what is before you. Write me and discuss with me your understanding of what who are, in fact, reading. Bye: Adam Troy

    We had a republican president and republican congress for six years...and conservative majority in the supreme court. Exactly how many abortions did all those republicans with all that power prevent? Ill let you in on a secret... Relublicans will Never ever...,ever get rid of abortion. Also liberals dont cause abortions the first time it went down was when Bill Clinton was president. So if youre against abortion and who isnt? Vote Democrat.

    Looks like one of the communists has way too much time on his hands. If he'd spend more energy looking for a job instead of peddling mindless chatter we probably wouldn't have to pay for his college or birth control pills, although I'd gladly pay for this one's BC pills. I don't want to see him reproducing.

    Liberals and Conservatives. They try to herd everybody into two factions and then pit us against each other. It's an old idea called 'divide and conquer'. There are as many different political viewpoints as there are people, so the entire premise of this post is bogus, to say nothing of the supposed 'facts'.

    I just have 1. The more Liberals try to fix things the more freedom is lost.
    Liberals have a control issue. If they see something wrong they can't help but do something about it. I guess its human nature but if they only could just understand that leaving man to rule one self is the only way to achieve complete freedom. I know its hard to leave people alone but that's what America is all about.
