Liberals base their entire schtick on “sob stories”:
“I have diabetes, and they need to kill babies so they can find a cure for *me*!”
“I have 2 kids, and I need to be able to use birth control so I can afford to go skiing!”
“I had sex after my prom and got pregnant, and now I need an abortion so I can go to college!”
“My child was diagnosed prenatally with a genetic disorder, and I can’t *bear* the thought of seeing my child suffer, so I need to have an abortion!”
“My grandmother is dying of Alzheimer’s, and I can’t *bear* to see her suffer, so I need to pull the plug!”
“If I have to pay my own medical bills, I won’t be able to afford the latest $200 sneakers, so I need the government to pay for them!”
BUT, if a conservative tries to use the same approach
“I’m a small business owner, and your tax policies are driving me out of business.”
“I’m sick, and I want the freedom to make my own medical decisions without the government butting in.”
“I’m sick, and I want an ethical cure.”
“My grandma’s sick, and I don’t want to see her killed.”
“People keep claiming about Bush’s ‘tax cuts for the rich,’ but we’re poor, and Bush’s tax cuts helped us considerably because of the child credits.”
THEN, liberals say things like, “Nobody wants to hear your whining.”
If a liberal tries to use a sob story to promote a political cause, that person is a victim of the horrible Republicans and needs society’s sympathy.
If a conservative tries to use a sob story to promote a political cause, that person is angry and bitter and spreading venom and hatred.
