Left’s ‘Big Lie’

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” – Joseph Goebbels

Joe Biden finally launched his 2020 presidential campaign the other day, basing it on a bald-face lie.

The lie, promulgated and spread by the Left and its complicit pals in the media, took flight after a white nationalist in 2017 plowed his car into a Charlottesville, Va., crowd, killing one and injuring several others. Trump’s reaction was labeled as “racist,” with him supposedly saying there were “good white nationalists and bad white nationalists” or “good neo-Nazis and bad neo-Nazis” at the rally.

That oft-repeated lie – Biden even spread it in his announcement to run – has been a cornerstone of the Left’s unending drive to smear Trump.

What Trump did say in a news conference three days after Charlottesville was that there were “very fine people” on “both sides” of the issue of whether it is appropriate to display Confederate monuments in pubic locations.

Here is what Trump said: “Excuse me, they didn’t put themselves down as neo-Nazis, and you had some very bad people in that group. But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group — excuse me, excuse me. I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.”

Responding to another question Trump said, “I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.”

Trump never said there were “good white nationalists and bad white nationalists” or “good neo-Nazis and bad neo-Nazis” at the rally. That was made up and spread by the media.

It has become, simply, the Left’s Big Lie.

    The next biggest lie of the left is that they care about people.

    They care as long as they get a paycheck or because they project their sorry pathetic lives onto others and really only feel sorry for themselves.

    The ultimate exponent outcome will eventually be “toxic attractiveness.”

    Because as Mencken observed “Socialism is the hatred of the other guy who is having a better time in the world”

    And who has a better time and are more privileged?

    Attractive people, which leftist tend not to be.

    Think about it.

    What is this lie worth? Try reasoning this :
    I. Credibility
    All Lies are designed to seem true. The expert liar carefully uses elements that seem probable and logical and are therefore easy to believe. On the other hand, The Truth is often illogical, wildly improbable and hard to explain.Lies are more believable than the truth.

    II. Reliability The Truth is spontaneous, accidental, and unpredictable. Lies, however, can be planned in detail long in advance and are thus guaranteed to turn out as predicted.
    Lies are more dependable than The Truth.

    III. Economy
    To be The Truth, an account of a given event must be completely accurate. This requires painstaking resourcefulness, expensive research, time-consuming attention to detail, complex logistics and thoroughness. In spite of all that, some people will believe it and others will not. A Lie will produce identical results without all the fuss and bother.
    Lies are simpler than Truth: Lies cost less than Truth in time, money, and effort.

    IV. Value
    The Truth can be found anywhere; it belongs to anybody who finds it,absolutely free. Lies are custom-made, often by experts, and the best ones are highly polished works of art.Lies are worth more money than Truth. Have you ever heard of anyone bribing a witness to tell The Truth?

    V. Respectability
    A. Great fortunes have been made by selling Lies to the public. The people who sell these Lies are often grateful to the gullible customers, so they endow libraries and universities and cultural centers.
    B. Nobody ever made a fortune selling The Truth. First of all, as already stated, The Truth is free. The only people who will pay money for The Truth are people who are being blackmailed–and they are only buying The Truth so they can hide it before anybody else sees it.
    Lies lead to libraries and universities, while The Truth leads to blackmail.
    More to come!

    Here it is :
    VI. Stability
    A. Take a thousand parts Truth, add one part Lie. Result: a lie.
    B. Take one thousandth part lie, add one part Truth. Result: again a Lie.
    C. Note that you can make a Lie out of Truth, but you can’t make The Truth out of a Lie.
    Lies are stronger and last longer than The Truth.

    VII. Imagination
    In reporting The Truth, a person must research the precise facts and stick to them exactly as they occurred. The liar can report the same incident without doing any research, merely saying whatever comes to mind and filling in details according to his fancy.
    Lies are more creative than The Truth.

    VIII. Recognizably
    People are accustomed to hearing Lies all the time.
    If you tell The Truth, people will think you are lying. If you convince
    them you are telling The Truth, they will become suspicious. Why is he
    suddenly telling The Truth? What is going on?

    IX. Supply and Demand
    A. In describing any given incident, only one version can possibly be The Truth, whereas the number of Lies possible is unlimited. Obviously, Lies are in far greater supply than The Truth.
    B. There is a great demand for Lies, if they are flattering, if they buildup one’s hopes, if they help one escape reality or if they promise health wealth, power or potency. Nobody is very anxious to hear The Truth. The only people who demand The Truth are those who are investigating something (lawyers, etc.)–and they only want The Truth to prove someone is lying.
    Lies are the acceptable medium of exchange in our society.
    They are in good supply and the demand for them remains strong.
    The Truth is in extremely short supply, but even this tiny supply far exceeds the demand.
    Thus, in our society, Truth occupies a position identical to that of dinosaur shit.

    Conclusions: Lies are superior to Truth in numerous ways.
    Lies are more ingenious;
    Lies make the world seem more pleasant;
    Lies are less embarrassing than Truth; and less frightening.
    Furthermore, in such fields are diplomacy, statesmanship, merchandising, advertising, public relations and bookkeeping, The Truth is an out-and-out handicap.
    In friendship, Truth is harmful; in love, it is disastrous.
    My prediction is that The Truth will be phased out of our society, almost unnoticed, in less than a generation. It will become a curio like the two-dollar bill. Probably, there will be museums where samples of The Truth will be displayed for the benefit of curious children who want to know what it was like. One can only hope that the curators of these Truth Museums will have the good taste not to fake the exhibitions.
    The Truth is that The Truth has become old-fashioned. It’s full of odd
    shaped little nooks and crannies, like so many old fashioned things, some people find them fascinating, but most people find them a pain in the neck. For those who care, it is a wonderful feeling to hold The Truth in your possession, to keep it and cherish it, never misuse it, then pass it along freely to anyone who wants it, giving it to them undamaged, unpainted, unadded to and unsubtracted from and every bit as glowingly alive as ever. To find all those joys in the handling of The Truth is a labor of love, but most of us in today’s society have no time for such things
