Life Imitating Art

I am beginning to think that contemporary liberalism is morphing into a cult for people who simply can’t deal with reality:

 

What is Verrit you ask? It’s a new social media site bubble created by Hillary’s number one fan Peter Daou. Apparently, what Hillary fans need most is a safe space where they don’t have to worry about outsiders. They need a social media sanctuary. From the site’s announcement page:

With the essence of American democracy at stake, 65.8 million people saw through the lies and smears and made a wise, patriotic choice. But they continue to be marginalized and harassed. Verrit’s purpose is to become their trusted source of political information and analysis; to provide them (and anyone like-minded) sanctuary in a chaotic media environment; to center their shared principles; and to do so with an unwavering commitment to truth and facts.

Most Hillary supporters, even at progressive site Vox, will admit she has a worrisome secretive side to her personality. But not Peter Daou. His approach to Hillary could best be described as that of a devoted fanboy. If Hillary was a fictional character, he would be the guy who owned every action figure in mint condition (still in the original package).

Go here to read the rest.  Most liberals, especially younger liberals, are extremely intolerant of disagreement, and seem to flee from it when they are unable to shout it down.  Saturday Night Live hit the nail on the head with this video after the election last year:

  1. Yes, shut down the conversation. I get this from some of kids concerning Trump and Pope Francis. Anything positive about Trump is fake news. Anything negative about Pope Francis is due to haters or fake news. Anything having to do with reality is always hateful and generated by fake news.

  2. So what provides power to this Bubble? Can’t be solar – not enough space. Can’t be wind – the bubble prevents wind. Can’t be fossil – the fossil fumes would accumulate and choke out bubble residents. Nuclear? Nope. Bernie bubble supporters hate nuclear. I guess electricity like money grows on trees.

  3. Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus, I believe the Bubble is powered by
    its residents’ inexhaustible supply of hot air. Too bad they
    haven’t been able to derive energy from smugness and hypocrisy,
    if so, they might export power to the rest of the nation.

  4. David,

    It wasn’t too much of a change. Obama-worshiping imbeciles converted to Hillary-worshiping morons.

    I imagine the site will be rife with crap that only liberals could believe.

  5. Most liberals, especially younger liberals, are extremely intolerant of disagreement, and seem to flee from it when they are unable to shout it down.

    Or respond with adolescent asides, gobs of verbal chaff, &c.

  6. I am beginning to think that contemporary liberalism is morphing into a cult for people who simply can’t deal with reality:

    The features Thomas Sowell delineated in Vision of the Anointed have grown more intense over time and consumed all the oxygen which might have sustained any other aspect.

  7. The is a “bubble” and safe space in our Founding Principles, in our constitution that acknowledges the innate rational human rights of the sovereign person. What is causing this demand for “safe space” is the absence of acknowledgment of the sovereign personhood of the human being. I AM WHO I AM. I AM therefore I think.

    beginning, Don? Really? 😉
    Seriously, contemporary views on Western jihad and gender theory are both totally unreal, and then unreality is compounded when they package them together into a progressive Weltanschauung. Reality is in deep scheisse right now.
