Logical fallacies, manipulations, and more, used to propagate and justify Democrat greed

The most basic: being “basic” (🔗)

The slang term, “basic,” has been coined to refer pejoratively to people who have no creativity or ingenuity of their own, but who blindly follow every fad and consume every product advertised to them. We can recognize this failing among Democrats when they state their advocacy for spending others’ money, but offer no brainstorms for how to get that money from others in an ethical way!

Religious and cult-like behaviors (🔗)

Democrat economics, isolated from any philosophy of ethics and entirely divorced from the sciences of the real world, are rooted in the same greed for immortality and unearned wealth as all other faith-based religions and get-rich-quick scams. Thus, the mechanisms for propagating such ideas and responding to challengers are identical to those employed by such religions and scams:

Mindless repetition and chanting
Sports-fan partisanship
“My team can do no wrong; your team can do no right”
Personality cultism
Holding a political leader blameless or failing to acknowledge valid critiques because the leader shares one's own partisan affiliation
Similarly, holding an opposing political leader to blame for everything and guilty of all accusations just because they don't share one's own partisan affiliation
Identity politics
Dismissing the opinions of others because of their skin color, ancestry, or sex; declaring that one's own beliefs or assertions are valid because of skin color, ancestry, or sex
Semantic distractions
Redefining terms like “socialism” and “capitalism” to mean other than what the dictionary says; also “racism,” “misogyny,” and even “violence”
Accusing others of one's own failings, to attempt to distract and deflect critcism of one's own fallacies

Childish namecalling (🔗)

The most obvious example of childish namecalling from Democrats is in their constant use of the word, “troll.” Intelligent, experienced internet users coined the term to mean, “an insincere person who takes an extreme position for the purpose of stirring up conflict and controversy.” But since Democrats’ opinions are always controversial by their fundamentally unethical nature, they stir up conflict every time they express any economic opinion. Since they are actually sincere in their lack of ethics, the real definition of the word “troll” is unusable for them.

Consequently, when any Democrat uses the word “troll,” they mean a different definition entirely. They mean, “anyone who is more ethical or better-educated on economics than a Democrat, who thereby disagrees with Democrat economics, and cannot be refuted by any Democrat.”

Other examples of common Democrat childish name-calling include “idiot”, “stupid,” and “crazy,” but importantly, such names are always flung out without any effort at intelligent refutation of those they attempt to malign.

Lifestyle attacks (🔗)

In their desperation to draw attention away from their own shortcomings, Democrats often attack others by criticizing irrelevant lifestyle characteristics—sadly, just making many of them up off the top of their heads, without evidence! These mindless assumptions often focus on physical characteristics, or even suffer the outright bigotry of racial discrimination.

Examples include:

Again: such tactics are a mere diversion attempt, to change the subject from inaccuracies that embarrass them. But in doing so, Democrats reveal their shame at their own factual incorrectness, as well as their inability to refrain from ad hominem logical fallacies.

Violence (🔗)

When greedy, jealous Democrats fail to get their way, like petulant, foot-stomping children, they sadly devolve into temper tantrums involving real physical violence. It may be asking others to perform it on their behalf, or it may be an outright murderous rampage, or anywhere in between: Democrats simply lack any ethical mechanism by which to restrain themselves from this most prehistoric, animal-like behavior.

Always the last resort: the “Brave Sir Robin” (🔗)

“Run awayyyy! Run awayyyy!” Brave Sir Robin was a character from Monty Python and the Search for the Holy Grail, famed for fleeing at the first sign of a conflict. When a Democrat says something that's blatantly untrue, and anyone calls them on it, if it isn't met by one of the above logical fallacies, the Democrat will just suddenly disappear.

This is because Democrats never, ever seem capable of apologizing for their mistakes, or fixing them. Their greedy beliefs are like religions, and they are incapable of repairing their mistaken religious tenets with better understanding and better communication of economically-sound principles.

So what should a Democrat do?

Believe it or not, Democrats are so habitual in the above fallacious logic and antisocial behaviors that they completely forget that there are more logical and people-friendly ways to behave! When their bad behavior and anti-intellectualism are pointed out to them, they are often left bewildered, wondering how they should act instead. Like brainwashing victims raised their whole lives in faith-based churches, it never occurs to them that there is an alternative to basing their motivations and the very actions of their whole lives on make-believe and wishful thinking.

“In science it often happens that scientists say, ‘You know that’s a really good argument; my position is mistaken,’ and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn’t happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.”
