I think this writer makes a convincing argument why it’s so hard to jam the truth down Liberals’ throats and are then surprised when they aren’t converted.

    I think there is a time and place to try to hold a rational discussion with liberals. Usually in private and one on one.

    Then there are times that the fallacy of their belief system needs to be confronted and shown to be the fruits of the tree of lies and evil manipulations. That tends to be in the public sphere.

    Certainly David Mamet makes a case for coming to the realization when he was ready as does David Horowitz. These two are exceptional human beings. I’m afraid a number of liberals have so much personally invested in their belief system that a through assaulting by the true won’t change them.

    That leaves those who haven’t fully committed to the evil and they are the ones who may be rescued watching the confrontation of the illogical and destructiveness of the left. Shouting ad hominem attacks however is sinking to their level, and neutralizing yourself.

    This is where Breitbart excelled. He could confront the left without sinking to their level.

    @Dr. Tar — You are correct. There will be a hardened Leftist core who will be impervious to any fact, truth or common sense appeal. For those we stop beating our heads against a brick wall and against those whose goal is antithetical to ours, we go to war against.

    But this writer is saying something that has been on my mind for a while. We don’t like it when they do it to us, but for some reason we think they should take it from us. That doesn’t make any sense to me and I believe the writer has identified a nugget of truth that is worth considering.

    Thanks,

    Breitbart was a warrior. He successfully galvanized conservatives and gave us a rallying point. He provided a platform. But he was not successful in winning over Leftists. This is where Ben Carson, I think, has an edge.

    Too naive for my taste. Fight fire with fire.
    There *may* be rare occasions in which a 1-on-1 *might* be effective, but I’ve been shouted down most often in those cases by folks who won’t even let me finish my sentence.

    Also, this approach suggests less so showing respect/love to the Leftist, and moreso being a “bleeding heart” charlatan like the Leftists (…sell ‘em on emotion!).

    To speak their language (emotion) to non-Leftists is fair game to persuade them; to speak their language (force/fire) to Leftists themselves is the only language they’ll ever understand.

    Since the article refers to Jesus then why don’t we look at what Jesus did do? He did not respond with flowery language to every single person.
