What on earth are you talking about? Nothing you have posted relates to this.

The Closing of the Liberal Mind: How Groupthink and Intolerance Define the Left

 

That closure is aptly demonstrated especially here on this thread by those liberals who without doubt condemn the book purely because of the title.

 

 


I am talking about the frequency of the incorrect assertion from you and many Trump Cult Members - that - All Liberals are - is Always Negative 

 

I quoted your own post

 

"The posts here does go a long way in supporting the title of this thread...all negative from the liberal posters."

 

Then I said in response to your Claim that all Liberals are Negative - a frequent response BTW from most Trump Cult Members when confronted with Facts

 

Herein lies the Crux of the Issue.....................................

 

Since January of 2017 - FACTS now Equate to Negativity in the Minds of Many ...........................

 

There is a reason for this Phenomenon.................................even the most uninformed when faced with Visual & Auditory stimulus at least attempt to process what they have seen and heard...................................

 

For Example - in the last few days - the President of the USA has said things like - You Need a Photo ID to Buy Groceries.................................

 

Regardless of your Economic or Cultural Status unless you've existed your entire life in the top 10% of the American Population who own almost 50% of all the Assets in the USA........you have been to a Grocery Store in 2018 and you know - Americans Do Not Need a Photo ID to buy Groceries - iin fact even factoring in the Check Cashing Argument - only 17% of Americans use checks and out of that 17% - the Majority only use Checks to pay Bills through the mail or at their Dr's Office 

 

Bottomline..............it's understandable that when people are unable to process Trumps statements as being in line with their own lifes experiences.................the resulting confusion records as a Negative Experience.............................

 

However the next Mental Exercise for most is not that the Anecdotal and Factual Evidence they posses is wrong.............................for most it means the President is Lying

 

For Trump Supporters - the only reasonable Conclusion is that they themselves are Wrong........................how terrible, awful and Negative that must be - it's happened to them on Average at least 8 times every single day since January 2017

Explaining false opinions? 


Have you read the book to even have an idea of what it is about?

@next time you might try to read a factual book instead of getting your ‘facts’ from a fictional novel. @Snoopy......can you tell me when you read the book? Sounds like you didn't.

Simply reading your post tells me that the author is just reinforcing your biases. Or did you just post your biases instead of anything about the book?


But did you read the book?  The posts here does go a long way in supporting the title of this thread...all negative from the liberal posters.  Typical responses from the Amen Corner.

The white supremacists/neonazis/kkk, and misogynist/incels are overwhelmingly self-described conservatives. How is that not hate and close mindedness? @tempermental........Is this the topic?

It shows the hypocrisy and lack of self awareness of the way you’ve summarized this book’s premise.

Tempermental, I see you received a "closed-minded" response. Typical.
