Why I no longer engage leftists

I have reached the point in my life where I realize I no longer have to suffer fools, and so I choose not to.

Really, the only time I ever encounter liberals is on Twitter, and on rare occasion on this blog. I typically don’t respond to their snark, or when I do it’s in parody form, never a serious engagement. I mean, why bother?

Something has happened during the last, say, 10 or 15 years that has caused the already unstable left to go full bore insane. As a friend of mine noted on Twitter just this morning, half of us loves the country, the other half hates it.

There is no use engaging liberals in a serious way. You will frustrate yourself. Facts and logic mean nothing to them. There really is an alternate state of reality occupied only by liberals.

“Progressives,” as they like to be called, are convinced that down is up and up is down, left is right and right is left, light is darkness and darkness is light, good is evil and evil is good. What do you do with that? There are no points of agreement. There is no ground upon which to compromise. There sphere they inhabit never intersects reality, not even on a single tangent.

I no longer engage leftists because there is no point to it. Nothing productive can be gained. The only thing to do is to expose them for who they are, tune out their #fakenews, and defeat their political candidates at the polls.
