    Default DO LIBERALS SUFFER FROM COGNITIVE DISSONANCE?????

    Conservatives always suspected some type of mental disorder with our liberal counterparts because their arguments/positions are often conflicted. You pin them in the corner and they either lie, attack, or run from the debate. Always angry it seems. Well I finally figured out why. It's called cognitive dissonance.

    Example........a demonrat claiming to be a christian but supports abortion.

    And I thought it was only Trump Derangement Syndrome all this time.

    The best example I've seen with cognitive dissonance among liberals/progressives is how they demand raising the minimum wage while still supporting open borders. Illegal labor will always undercut any government mandates for higher wages. They just don't get it.

    Another good example is how they claim that police are very abusive, particularly toward black people, but then some of them want only cops to have guns. It's amusing in a sort of sad way.

    What did Christ say about abortion?

    Odd. I’m a liberal and so are many of my friends. None of us support open borders. That makes you either stupid or a liar. Or, more likely, a stupid liar.

    Time and again, police brutality against blacks has been proven. That has ZERO to do with police carrying weapons as part of their job. There again is your demonstration of stupidity.

    Then why is the left against detainment now? They weren't under Obama. If you end detainment, that effectively is the same as open borders, because you're just betting that people later show up to their court dates for things like asylum claims.

    Some on the left even want to abolish ICE.

    As for the gun issue, if police are so abusive, why should they be the only ones with guns?

    Let’s try this again, stupid fuck, and don’t try your feckless backtracking. “Effectively” lol

    Sanders has advocated the end of ICE. https://theintercept.com/2019/11/07/...-plan-ice-cbp/

    He's not exactly a fringe part of the Democrats. He's one of the frontrunner candidates. That would suggest that a large portion of Democrats agree with this idea.

    I'm not Sanders, punk. When you label people, instead of demonstrating your ignorance, try to get your fucking facts straight.

    I have. And I see that you're more interested in some labels of your own than in actually debating much of anything I've stated.

    Reagan did not support ICE, and therefore was for open borders, by your theory. There is a strong argument that INS did it better.

    Reagan definitely capitulated quite a bit on immigration. Granted, he was a globalist, like many politicians of his era and today.

    He got certain things right, but immigration wasn't one of them.

    ICE did not exist before 2003, so no elected official before 2003 supported it. Does that make them all evil?

    I was referring to his support for amnesty. https://www.npr.org/templates/story/...ryId=128303672

    That's literally all Christians. Nobody follows their own religion.
