They are not allergic to facts, they are afraid of them. This is why they run from them. The liberals want us to believe their agenda and ideology. Since the facts are in conflict with and disprove their ideology they fear the facts and try to divert attention from them. This is why they scream racist so loudly and so often. When they find themselves on the wrong side of the facts, as they so often do, they must stop us from seeing the truth so they rant and scream and insult. Talk about winning the war in Afghanistan and you find yourself bogged down in a debate about whether or not you are a racist. Discuss how to best protect our borders from drug and weapon smugglers and terrorist and become embroiled in a discussion about just exactly how big a racist you are. ETC, ETC.
You can't have a debate about the war, illegal immigration, abortion, taxes, national defense, the crashing housing market or anything else. Either you agree with the liberals and scream at and insult those who disagree, or you are one who has a different idea and you are the one getting screamed at and insulted.
Just look at Juan Williams. He is a liberal but when he points to all the terrorist attacks that use airplanes and says he fears to fly with those who are trying to kill him the liberal community goes nuts. He is branded a racist and fired from his job at NPR for telling the truth. And who hires him? Why it's those racist conservatives over at Fox News. So now Juan Williams tells us the liberal view at Fox because the liberal media caught him telling the truth. Juan Williams has appeared many times over the years at Fox. Many Conservatives there disagree with him but the only ones who personally insult him are other liberals.
Liberals are very diverse and tolerant. They will accept any who agree with them and tolerate any who agree with them You must agree with them 100% and all the time. If you disagree even slightly they will cast you out and try to destroy you.
And for Colin Powell. He was a staunch Republican when Republicans were in power. Then he became a staunch Liberal Democrat when they were in power. Now that the mid terms are over and the Republicans are back in power will he change his stripes again? Who cares. He faces the way the wind blows. Isn't it racist of Obama to have a black weather vane?
