Progressives won't listen to facts

If you want an exercise in frustration, try getting progressives to listen to facts. They won’t — and this video explains why they’re so afraid of them.

Progressives won't listen to factsOne of my constant frustrations in dealing with the Progressives in my world is that they absolutely do not want to hear facts. Nor are they subtle about it. “Don’t confuse me with facts.” “I can’t stand talking with you. All you do is tell me facts.” “I’m not going to read that; all those facts are boring.” Emotions are easy and satisfying. Facts are demanding, challenging, and often frustrating. They require thought and analysis.

But what happens when people find themselves in a position in which they cannot avoid the facts — such as actors reading off a teleprompter for what they think will be a standard anti-gun Public Service Announcement?

Now that you’ve watched the video, I’ll be the first to admit that we have no idea how many of the actors, when confronted with these facts, said something along the lines of “This is a bunch of BS and I’m not saying,” and then marched out of the studio. That doesn’t matter, though. What matters is that, if you can get even a handful of people to pay attention to facts, instead of sloughing them off as boring and scary, you can change the way they think.

John Adams famously said that “Facts are stubborn things.” Progressives are even more stubborn, because they know deep inside that facts can upset their carefully constructed world view. Magic happens, though, if we can get past that resistance and really make them think . . . about the facts.
