    There are only three books on the bookshelf and their hands are too big. I don’t trust either one of these two.

    • Jeep

      Doc, now that IS funny! :)

  • Ron

    Most people move and use their hands when they speak. These don’t.

  • Greg T

    Sounds like discussions I’ve had, thus the reason I was sympathetic to Chip’s article the other day.

    One thing I have discovered, that shouldn’t surprise anyone is that being nice and simply stating the facts like the majority of the video does help win their trust. I’ve made the most inroads with positive attitude and simply stating facts.

  • Doug

    Folks… this is a cartoon!!! Try to concentrate on the subject matter and not on whether they move their oversized hands enough. This may be an exaggerated version of how liberals actually speak, but it is based on reality. I think the computer-generated liberal is a perfect example of many people who are brainwashed by the liberal media and the liberal academia. If they cannot even discuss the issues in a logical manner, how can we ever convince them they are wrong?

    • PG

      Unfortunately, both liberals and conservatives only listen to people who have the same views. Independent research is not the norm for people who are already convinced and don’t want to be confused with the facts.
      The tough part is comparing both sides of a discussion and then do some fact checking on your own to see who is the most accurate.Most facts can be skewed.
      there are plenty of actual clips of what politicians say. Interesting to see how many times they change their view to fit the audience!

  • Christin

    What a hoot… you are a clever computer guy, Bob Livingston. This was such a stupid exchange between these two computerized characters, but this is pretty much how it is talking to an indoctrinated liberal living in a fantasy world. Their brain and heart are not functioning in His Truth and Reality.

    We are in so much trouble!

    • Bruce

      Christian,

      Its not being liberal, its being a follower of the Fallen ones that makes them act that way.

      All the Best to you..

  • hoser

    Unfortunately, Left/Liberals will never see this….

    • Alex

      Why do you say that? Is it because you, like so many Fright Wingers never listen to variant viewpoints, and therefore assume that everyone is closed-minded like you?
      I am very far to the Left yet open enough to at least pay to what is happening in the Conservative mindset.
      I guarantee that I watch Conservative commentators like Hannity and O’Reilly much more often than you watch Rachel; Maddow or Laurence O’Donnell—guaranteed.
      As for the silly video–it is just that—a silly video, produced by someone who has hardly ever engaged with Liberal/Leftists.

      • vicki

        Alex demonstrates liberal arguement by saying:
        “Is it because you, like so many Fright Wingers never listen to variant viewpoints,”

        Argument to ridicule (fright wingers)

        No big surprise you are not often listened to.

        • JC

          Exactly…he promotes himself by calling himself “open minded”. All the while attacking American values. Maybe he’s so open minded…his brains fell out. ;)

      • Bruce R Porter Sr

        No dude, I haven’t watched tv since the 70s, and I qualified for Mensa. The fact is that as a group what we call liberals are totally emotional, they don’t do conscious thought. I have sisters that immediately called me a racist when I said I’d not vote for the Kenyan. Despite the fact that I have donated to 8 blacks and only 1 white in the last few election cycles (Ron Paul is my honky of the day). So, no thought, just emotion, just like this flic. You cannot discuss with a “liberal”, they are totally closed minded, but will tell me how closed I am.
        However, one of the arguements used against me was that I was better educated, better read, and more intelligent…..so that made the “liberal” right. Good grief! They are always “I’m right and you are wrong”. No discussion.

      If I can vote against any politician who’s against OWS, I will. I’m 100% for “narrowing” the economic gap between the haves and have-nots as quickly as possible. I’m still looking for republicans who’s with me on this issue–I cannot find even one. I also I stand with the teachers, nurses, and all public employees of Wisconsin, Ohio, etc., who are fighting for their collective bargaining rights. I live in McAllen, Texas and have lived here and in the Rio Grande Area all my life. I was born in Donna, Texas. I love this area and all its people. All Americans who like to help the poor should consider moving to the Rio Grande Area. Believe me when I say that there’s a lot of work that needs to be done here, in this area, including McAllen, to help the poor.

      • JC

        Well Abel, if you’re whole philosophy is “tax the rich” no sensible person will be on your side. Why don’t you and the other OWS fleabags get your head around the idea that it’s not the rich who are the problem…it’s the Lazy! That and corporate / government cronyism.
        How can people feel that a problem created by the government will be solved by the government? It’s completely idiotic. Restore the Republic. Abolish the Fed.

      • s c

        If you want to make Texas a better state, either move to California, or have the GRAVITAS to greet your illegal friends at the border and volunteer to help CLEAN UP ALL OF THE FRICKIN’ TRASH YOUR AMIGOS BRING INTO AMERICA!
        Are you DOWN for THAT struggle, comrade?

    Show me a progressive with an open mind, and I’ll show you a fictional character who never existed. The vast majority of progressives rely on EMOTIONS. They tend to have little or no use for facts or figures.
    In the world of a utopian progressive, if something looks good, sounds good or feels good, it’s GREAT, and they demand that everyone must obey it. If they’re expected to THINK about something, it’s BAD.
    No, thanks. If I have to deal with a progressive, I know what to expect. I’d rather talk to a dog. A dog doesn’t have to be taught how to be honest.

    • Abel P.

      I suppose “S C Cancel” thinks that the economic wealth gap between the haves and have-nots is a lie. That’s the issue that we need to correct as quickly as possible in the US. Our nation cannot continue to be a strong nation if too many of its people are poor and that’s where we’re headed if we fail to do something “quickly” about this issue. Oh, and I forgot to say that I’m a very proud to be Liberal.

      • JC

        Then why don’t you ask your Messiah to print a bunch more money…that’ll fix things right? After all I’m sure your doing much better that you were 4 trillion dollars ago…

  • Carol Ensley

    I had no idea that the Liberals were in favor of muslims!!!!!! I was shocked at this video . Sorry count me out for this vote, back to Republican of which I am a registered voter. I had some unknown knowledge of the meaning of being liberal. The very last thing on earth I will ever want is anymore of their intrusion to our country. I thought as a liberal…I might have the chance to vote them back to their homeland forever. It’s amazing to me how this president was brought into the arms of a Christian country. Of course the bible does tell us of the people growing cold and against all Gods ways in the end time. I’m so glad, it is the end times, please everyone get on board!! Jesus is returning. Sincerely. Carol Ensley

    • Dave

      Though if you buy the idea that both Liberals and Muslims major on emotions and minor in rationality, they’re surprisingly compatible!!

  • Bill

    This was very funny because it is dead on. I have had the very same discussion with my wife’s cousin. She was a pretty smart kid she went to college but came back a moron. She is 40 now. The good thing about her is that I am able to use her as an example to my children on what not to do with your life. She is a utter failure in her career and family life. Emotionally she is very bitter and makes others around her unhappy. Yes she is the liberal.

    • Born in America

      Bill – Don’t be surprised about your wife’s cousin and her beliefs, my own grandson who is a college graduate, talks the same way and isn’t employeed either. I’ve tried to talk to him but he has been brainwashed by our liberal professors and they have been educating our kids for the least 5 decades. Krushev said we won’t have to fire a shot, you’ll bury yourselves. This was the BIG plan and it’s working. How do we undo this travesty.

  • Jeri

    It’s true…most Americans ARE brainwashed & don’t realize it! Watch Operation Paperclip, MK ULTRA, & CIA Mind-control Techniques on YouTube. This has been going on for a long, long, long, long, long, long time. That’s how many decades of deception the U.S. Government has had to get us to where we are today. Lost. Without a clue. It’s no wonder we are fragmentizing for all the world to see. Don’t ever let anyone tell you the Cold War is over! Our enemies are not only preparing for a great feast, they are running our country.

  • FreedomFighter

    OMH, liberals actually do talk like that, robotic repeaters of suicidal mantra’s.

    I wanted to choke her.HaHa. The only thing false about this is the liberals never let you finish your point.

    • Greg T

      Then they get mad and refuse to talk anymore. It is like they expected personal attacks and false accusations would win the argument instead of facts and reason.

      Unfortunately some that think like us are rather rude. But the difference is like comparing the Tea Party to OWS. One had no arrests, but were called terrorists. One had no message but was reported to speak for most Americans. The few rude and simple minded among us do not compare to their standard format of understanding and communicating.

  • RW CORMACK

    WONDERFUL RIGHT ON PRESENTATION….GREAT….

  • Gringo Infidel

    Spot on target – an accurate depiction of the libtards ways. Incapable of any rational, logical, discussions.

    May they not breed or vote, indeed!

  • danni

    I think that the man is right in this argument. Muslim is not a religion of peace. Tell that to those who have died for not believing.

  • Abel P.

    All I know is that President Clinton turned over billions in surplus to GW Bush and that Bush turned the money over to the extreme wealthy 1% and that when GW Bush turned the country over to President Obama, it was already Trillions in debt. Yes, I still blame Bush for the deficits (invading Afghanistan and Iraq on borrowed money) plus paying for a Medicare Health drug program–also on borrowed money. Yes, I still blame Bush for not wanting to tax the extreme wealthy and expecting future generations to pay for his bills.

  • Abel P.

    I’m sticking with the 99%ers. Why would anybody stand up for the top 1% Wealthiest Americans who don’t even want to pay their fair share of taxes? Why would anybody want to be “pro” their Greedy Corporations and their tons and tons of unregulated and nontransparent money to use against middleclass Americans and President Obama? Yes, I’m sticking with the 99%ers (the middleclass) and President Obama, come Tuesday, November 6, 2012 and I’m going to make sure that I’ll be able to vote or, if not, the Republicans will have Hell to pay.

      “FAIR” is a concept of children and communists…which one are you?

  • s c

    A, your transportation to the nearest asylum is here. Your drugs and long-term therapy are waiting for you, too. The results of your mental competency exam came back, and it doesn’t look good at all.
    Keep in touch, and good luck in getting rid of those strange voices you hear each day.

  • BrotherPatriot

    Trust me…I don’t vouch for the female in the cartoon…however, her statement about the zionist & bankers is actually quite true.

    God Bless.

  • Kath P

    In my opinion, this cartoon is bizarre, laughable in a not funny way, and depressing. From what I have determined, whatever does not fit one’s core beliefs is usually rejected. At my core I am conservative.

    I grew up under the threat of socialism-communism. We had to hide under our school desks to practice for the day a nuclear bomb might strike the city. I believe that the current “liberalism” of today IS the route to socialism and ultimately the loss of freedom(s).

    I regret that this scenario is a cartoon; I would prefer to see two people, body language and all, in such a conversation. The cartoon aspect makes this conversation look riduculous.

    My stance—quit butting in so much, big government! And to Obama and congressional gangs, you are not listening to all of us! You are running over us. My country is in decline, and I want it fixed according to the Constitution!
