Conservatives Do Not Live In The Same World As The Rest Of Uson June 22, 2012 at 11:23 am
POLL: MOST REPUBLICANS STILL BELIEVE THAT IRAQ HAD WMD | A new poll conducted by Dartmouth government professor Benjamin Valentino found that 63 percent of Republican respondents still believe that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction when the United States invaded in 2003, even though this assertion has been thoroughly debunked. In comparison, only 27 percent of independents and less than 15 percent of Democrats believed in the misinformation. Additionally, 64 percent of Republican respondents believe that President Obama was born in another country. As the Huffington Post’s Dan Froomkin notes, “this latest poll result seems to indicate a refusal — unique to the modern Republican Party — to acknowledge facts.”
A refusal to acknowledge facts. Can you think of a better phrase to sum up the right wing?
When the media and Independent voters and even some firebagger liberals complain that both parties are the same and that both liberals and conservatives are JUST as extreme as the other, this is definitive proof that they are full of shit. Conservatives inhabit a world where facts that do not fit their narrative of victimization are simply discarded and replaced, wholesale, with “facts” that reinforce their worldview without the slightest bit of evidence to support them.
