This is a really good comment — appended to my post about the Stupid Statue of the Stupid Smug Little Girl standing in front of the Charging Bull that all the left-wing idiots love because it represents their fantasy that the world will change if you just stand there and look smug — that I said I was going to promote to a post then forgot about, then remembered again.
It says so much about lefties. Reality vs. fantasy.
Fantasy: “We just need to hug it out with our enemies and learn to understand and accept our differences, because deep down, we’re all the same.”
Reality: We are all the same (dark, twisted souls), which is why we should know and accept that sometimes the only recourse is to smack down the bad guys [Because they will gladly kill you for being stupid enough to want to hug them].
Fantasy: “If I really, really, really want something hard enough, I’ll get it in the end (the plot of every Jack Black movie), despite my total lack of perseverance, work ethic, and focus on the goal.”
Reality: If you have the aptitude, resources, resolve, and opportunity and work really, really, really hard, maybe you’ll be one of the lucky ones who wins in the end. [Also, you can get what you want and still not be happy – V.]
Fantasy: “If I stand resolutely against the tide [and look really smug, and maybe direct snarky comments at those who tell me I’m wrong], the tide will bow to me.”
Reality: If you get out of the way of a tsunami, maybe you won’t drown.
Fantasy: “The laws of physics, common sense, chemistry, economics, and human nature are null and void when I make my plans to fix the world.”
Reality: Time and gravity take their toll. Facts don’t change, feelings do; bet with the facts. [And ever expanding Government is fiscally unsustainable in the long term.]
Yeah, that. All of that.
Also, if you say “of course, we support free speech,” but have to attach an asterisk and a list of exceptions to that statement… you don’t support Free Speech.
