So it’s come out at that one of the strategies for the Huffington Post when it was first made was for it to appear for mainstream than it truly was. Of course, they failed at that and it became obvious to most people that HuffPo was filled with screaming weirdos. This is a big problem with liberals these days: They can’t even fake mainstream anymore.
Just look at the past couple years with liberals in charge. Basically every mainstream idea — stopping out of control spending, protecting the border, not letting a mosque be specifically built on the site of an Islamic terror triumph — has been dismissed as racist. That’s because liberals can’t even understand mainstream thought to even debate it anymore. That’s the defining characteristic of the left these days: Complete and utter ignorance of their fellow man.
And there’s the thing: Who we call liberal are anything but. They get very angry at new ideas different than their own. What we call the left are really just conservatives who are closed minded on old, stupid ideas — like socialism. And they’re very resistant to reexamining those ideas, hence yelling racism or what not at anyone who thinks differently. So the left can’t even fake mainstream anymore because the majority of them are too ignorant and too myopic in their thinking to even understand another point of view. Hence the average editorial from the Huffington Post.
