What I don’t understand is how so few liberals can’t see the blatant hypocrisy. I know it’s (D)ifferent in their minds because they are the “good guys,” and the ends justify the means, but how can you not step back for at least a second and at least sympathize with the comically Orwellian optics of everything they are doing? When GWBush was pushing the security state after 9/11, these were the very type of abuses supposed “liberals” and sniveling academics were warning us about… “think critically” they said… how can anyone over the age of 30 not see this complete flip flop? Wouldn’t you be kinda pissed to be a good liberal all your life only to find out you’ll be called a Nazi for the same views that were literally liberal dogma less than 10 years ago? It makes me question the very consciousness of some of these people, it’s revealed the sheer weakness and tribalism that is so strong, they will sacrifice their own children. I still respect, or at least feel sorry for, liberals who are either too stupid/naive to see that they are harming people, but if you still believe you are somehow on the right side of history after all these abuses of power (which are far more reaching and insidious than anything a Trump, Bush, Reagan or even Nixon has allegedly done), there is something very wrong and evil inside of you.

I found this article via Greenwald. Should be mandatory reading because it provides a very effective way of communicating a couple of fundamental concepts.
