Proven wrong, Leftists double down on lies

By Scott Tibbs, September 30, 2019

"This is how you got Trump." That is a lesson the radical Left needs to learn, because the lies they spew about conservatives are what pushed so many Republicans to pick the nastiest guy in the 2016 field. That radical Leftists are waging a culture war is what pushed millions to pick a culture warrior who will not hesitate to fight back, even when he is punching way below his weight class.

I addressed assuming bad motives and rank dishonesty by radical Leftists last week, but the topic deserves to be revisited as I refute another flagrant lie that has been spread about me. In response to my comment on gun death statistics, one particularly nasty Leftist screeched in Herald-Times comments that I "couldn't care less about life and death just births."

Yes, that's why I never write about life and death issues other than abortion. Oh, wait. That is not true at all, which you can see by my many letters in the Herald-Times on criminal justice reform, prisoner rights, police brutality and due process. See here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here. Of course, she knows all of this. She is just a brazen liar. Naturally, she doubled down on her lies even after she was proven wrong beyond a shadow of a doubt.

For those without a HTO subscription, you can see the letters here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here.

Of course, another radical Leftist rushed to her defense with a particularly idiotic statement: "It is usually the most defensive who are the most guilty." It is amazing that anyone with the slightest bit of critical thinking skills could say this. By this radical Leftist's own so-called "logic," if I falsely accused him of all kinds of horrific crimes, he is not allowed to defend himself. If he does defend himself, he only proves the allegations to be true.

I categorically reject this line of "thinking," because this is a truly evil mentality. This means when someone is lied about, refuting the lies is evidence of guilt - no matter how completely the lies are proven wrong with facts and evidence. Then, the liars and have license to lie even more.

As I said before, this is how you got Trump. Conservatives have seen this kind of behavior for years. Can you really blame them for picking Trump as the Republican party nominee in 2016 despite his numerous flaws, with the logic of "at least he fights" to justify that choice?
