The Liability of Liberalism: Irrationality

I got this from our resident Liberal, “I Hate Conservativiots”. Look at how this typical Liberal utilizes fallacious logic in order to attempt to smear both Roman Catholicism as well as the name of Steve Bannon:

10,000 reasons never to trust a priest.

Steve bannon is a good catholic, too.

Most modern Liberals must rely on faulty logic in order to convince the unsuspecting target. They have no other choice, given the propositions within their belief system cannot be sustained through Reason.

One of the most common logical fallacies utilized is this one:

Ad Hominem (Guilt by Association)

argumentum ad hominem

(also known as:  association fallacy, bad company fallacy, company that you keep fallacy, they’re not like us fallacy, transfer fallacy)

Description: When the source is viewed negatively because of its association with another person or group who is already viewed negatively.

So here we have the following argument:

A Roman Catholic priest is accused of child pornography. 

Child pornography makes one untrustworthy. 

Therefore, all Roman Catholic priests must be untrustworthy.

But the conclusion doesn’t follow from the premise because of the logical fallacy. Concluding that all Roman Catholic priests are untrustworthy because of the actions of other priests is fallacious reasoning.

And then when the fallacy is applied forward, the irrational Liberal double-applies the fallacy toward Roman Catholicism in general:

All Roman Catholic priests must be untrustworthy. 

Steve Bannon is a Roman Catholic. 

Therefore, Steve Bannon must also be untrustworthy.

How the above is obviously fallacious I leave as an exercise to the reader.

These are Irrational Liberals…disciples of Irrational Liberalism

    But no, it is not just one priest guilty of child rape, child pornography, abuse, it is hundreds if not thousands. This brings in “statistics.” Statistics are future predictive.

    Statistics therefore indicate there is indeed good reason to distrust the idea that any priest is trustworthy when so many of them clearly weren’t.

  2. Gotcha.

    Well by that logic we can say:

    “There are ‘thousands’ of Liberals all across the world destroying property, harming people and causing general mayhem and strife as ThugLiberals are wont do to.”

    “Therefore, ‘statistics therefore indicate’ ALL Liberals are ThugLiberals.”

    Isn’t that right? If not, why not?

    And further:

    “There are thousands if not millions of Liberals deploying a fundamental principle of Liberalism: Racial Identity”

    “Therefore, ‘statistics therefore indicate’ ALL Liberals are Racist.”

    Silly Liberals…logic is for kids.

    Indeed we could say that if only those charges were actually true, like they are for priests.
