20 Phenomenal Fringe Benefits Of Being A Liberal

You have to give liberalism a certain amount of credit. It doesn’t work, destroys lives, and pits people against each other, but that's not to say that there are no advantages to being a liberal. Sure, you may end up sleeping in a tent in Zuccotti Park, reading Noam Chomsky's laughably ignorant books, or having to watch Rachel Maddow babble incoherent nonsense on MSNBC, but the fringe benefits cannot be beaten!

1) If you're a politician, no matter how dumb you are or how poor your decision-making is, the press will still never question your intelligence. >>>

5) You can leave a woman to die at the bottom of a tidal pool, use crack, or have a gay prostitution ring run out of your apartment and other liberals will STILL vote for you.

6) You can suggest that black Americans are too incompetent to handle something as simple as getting a photo ID without being called racist.

7) You can use capitalism to make huge piles of money and then turn right around and score brownie points with your fellow liberals by ripping an economic system that made it possible for you to actually become filthy rich writing, making music, or acting for a living. >>>

16) You can be a former KKK member who drops the N-bomb on TV and people will still deny you're a racist.

17) You can ride around in an SUV, fly on a private jet, and have a mansion while you lecture other people about the importance of having a small environmental footprint and other liberals won't have a problem with it at all.

18) You can claim to hold the exact same position as conservatives on gay marriage and you won't be called a homophobe.

19) You can regularly call conservative women sluts, whores, tw_ts, and even the C-word and still call yourself a feminist without other people laughing out loud.

20) You get to feel comfortable with lying to other people because you know what's in their own best interests better than they do and if they were a little more enlightened -- like you -- they'd thank you for misleading them into doing the right thing!

Of course we'll get the inevitable "well, with conservatives...".

★ Leftists have double standards so they are twice as moral as the rest of us.

★ They say raising taxes is patriotic, even though the American revolution was a revolt against taxes.

★ If you're a conservative and you tell a crippled man to stand up for the audience to see you better, you'd be attacked as heartless, idiotic, and clueless.

★ Display a complete unwillingness to learn or read while complaining that conservatives are ignorant and close-minded.

★ As a liberal you can be for the open murder of unborn children, as well as infanticide of children that survive a abortion, but as long as you say things like: conservatives/republicans want to starve children the liberal media will deem you a champion for children's needs and causes.

Should also add the benefit of never having to waste time with facts, history, math or logic to arrive at your own position on anything -- and If you really want to know what liberals are up to, just listen to what they are accusing their opponents of doing.

Anything else ... ?

When Barack Obama made the comment that he can see the fallen soldiers on Memorial Day, said he visited 57 states, or mispronounced corpsman, nary a peep was made. But the fallout when Dan Quayle misspelled potato equaled that of a 20 megaton bomb. When Hank Johnson worried that Guam might tip over or when Sheila Jackson Lee bragged about the flag on Mars, you had to go to conservative websites to see this but when W would say something stupid, it was front page news.

When you elevate the mediocre, you destroy the public's ability to discern the truly excellent.
