This is an enormous topic, read through my personal website, observing libertarian.com for examples. Let’s just pick one… Islam.
The only way leftists can perpetuate slogans like “Islam is a religion of peace” or the absurdly laughable “Muslims are the true feminists” – I swear that’s a real claim they made, I’m not creative enough to think up some horse shit like that.
Anyway… The only way leftists can perpetuate slogans is that they are wholly ignorant of what is actually IN the Quran. Leftists, spoon fed propagandist indoctrination since grade school: believe what they are told if they are told by authority figures they are instructed to obey. So when they are told “Islam is a religion of peace” or “Islam is the most feminist religion“: they believe it.
If anyone actually cracks open a Quran and reads it – they find out something quite different. Which is why leftists don’t do that.
Leftists, are taught even at top level universities, by leading leftist academics… That there is no such thing as truth, that truth is unknowable and that they should rely on what they are told by experts, not because they can prove what they claim is true, because truth is unknowable, but they should rely on experts simply because they are experts.
Don’t believe me? Think I’m being hyperbolic? Think I’m making that up? Well buckle up buttercup, you’re in for a bumpy ride.
This is Dr. Harry Collins, who’s written 18 academic books, Director at Cardiff university, speaking at Memorial University during the Knowledge Institutions, Free Expression and Democracy in Canada symposium, in front of the Royal Society of Canada, media, civil society organizations and government.
Saying exactly what I just stipulated. I, in fact, quoted him verbatim regarding truth and experts.
The video’s pretty long, but the link on my website will take you to time code 26:27. Which is directly the part where I quoted him. So you need not watch the whole thing, just a minute or less.
And there you have it boys and girls, attack helicopters and mayonnaise. This is why if you attempt to interview or talk to and ask questions of leftists on the street at protests they can’t tell you which, or any, of Trump’s policies they disagree with. This is why Feminists continue to believe feminism is about equality, in spite of all the inequality which is supported by feminists. This is why Leftists are so profoundly ignorant about what’s actually in the Quran and what the Quranic teachings actually are.
In every conceivable realm of knowledge and actuality: if leftists are challenged, questioned or presented with factual information which is contrary to their narratives they appear to be astonishingly ignorant of reality.
Leftists accept what they are told by people they are instructed to obey. Thus, If they are told “Islam is a religion of peace”, then Islam is a religion of peace. If they are told “Islam is the most feminist religion”, then Islam is the most feminist religion. If they are told the openly Gay Jew Milo Yianopolis who’s married to a black man is a Nazi: then Milo’s a Nazi. If they are told the Orthodox Jew Ben Shapiro, complete with yamaka perched atop his head is a Nazi, then Ben Shapiro’s a nazi.
Not because any of this is true, there is no objective truth, truth is unknowable, but because experts tell them it’s true.
