Fourth of Six

Listen Up! There will be a test!

I'm getting fed up with liberals and media using the word "nuanced". Nuance means subtlety, shades of meaning, but when used by liberals, it means they're going to lie to you. Liberals say we conservatives see things as black and white, when the truth supposedly lies somewhere in between, in the gray area. Liberals are very patronizing toward conservatives, accusing us of not being sophisticated enough to hold contradictory ideas in our minds, of being uncomfortable with cognitive dissonance and forced to simplify things, like children. It's a sign of immaturity to believe in absolutes, right and wrong, good and evil.

So when a liberal says he is going to tell a more "nuanced" version of history, what he really means is that he's telling a revisionist version of history which paints the good guys as the bad guys, and the bad guys as "complicated."

When the president says an issue is more "nuanced" than the conservatives say, he means it's so complicated that we can't understand it, but he knows what's best for us and we must trust him with the details.

Great post, Number Four!

I like your comment about the bad guys being portrayed as "complicated." How true it is!

Liberal: You see everything in black and white. That's wrong!
Conservative: So I should take a more nuanced position?
Liberal: Exactly. You should take a more nuanced position or no position at all!

Is everyone either a Liberal or a Conservative? Are all Liberals patronizing? When Europeans colonized the New World and displaced the Indians who were the good guys?

No, not everyone is either a Liberal or a Conservative, but the two people in the conversation I made up were.

I don't know of any studies which show that Liberals are more patronizing toward Conservatives than vice versa, but I think their philosophy would lead them in that direction.

You asked when Europeans colonized the New World and displaced the Indians, who were the good guys? How would you go about answering a question like that? Wouldn't you need a standard by which to judge what is good and what is bad?
