2014 is the Year of the Liberal Lie

Bowe Bergdahl. The IRS’s missing e-mails. Lena Dunham. “Hands up, don’t shoot.” Jonathan Gruber. GM and that faulty ignition switch. Andrew Cuomo and that anti-corruption commission. The Secret Service and that White House intruder. Rachel Noerdlinger and her “disabled” son. Rolling Stone and gang rape.

2014 was the year when truth was optional. 2014 was the year when convenient fabrication was the weapon of choice for celebrities, activists, big business and politicians. 2014 was the Year of the Lie.

    From the article: “Mostly the liars didn’t suffer any repercussions for spreading
    falsehoods, and most didn’t even seem particularly embarrassed when they
    were exposed.”

    So no shame, and no consequences – the only two means to stop liars are no longer allowed in the arsenal of truth. And people are shocked when politicians, the elite, and celebrities lie. Indeed, some get rich on lies.

    Ontario has been following the trend for 12 years, first McGuinty, and now Wynne. Even though he lied in the media, lied in his autobiography, Obama was re-elected. And now the Democrats are offering Fauxahontas or Shrillary who wouldn’t know the truth if it bit them.

    Either punish liars, or expect more of the same.

    If I say 2014 was not the Year of the Lie does that merely confirm that it was?
    (I’m confused …)

    This is what a society close to death looks like. Sad really, I’ll miss civilization once it’s gone.
