In my many years of covering politics, I’ve noticed a pattern in the liberal thought process. It’s a pattern that guides our friends in the Democrat Party on every conceivable political platform or life choice.
It’s led me to one inescapable observation: Liberals always try to do what makes them feel good about themselves, but are completely incapable of thinking ahead more than one step at a time.
Ponder that for a moment. Then take abortion as an example.
A woman has an unwanted pregnancy. They want to fix that problem, because it makes them feel good and righteous, so they demand abortion access cloaked in the guise of ‘reproductive rights.’ They’ve solved one problem, but are unable to think to the next step – how those ‘reproductive rights’ affect the baby. Not only are they unable to think about the repercussions of abortion on that child (which is instant death), they can’t even understand that the child is a living human being.
They can’t think two steps ahead.
The following cartoon illustrates this concept perfectly when it comes to illegal immigration. Here again, we have a situation where bleeding hearts want to help those who were brought here illegally through no fault of their own.
But guess who that hurts?
The cartoon is aptly named “Some Children Left Behind,” and the artist, the renowned A.F. Branco, describes it as “Democrats seem more interested in the dreams of illegal immigrant’s than those of native born citizens.”
There’s no ‘seem’ about it. Democrats are infinitely more interested in aiding illegal immigrants because they can’t think forward to that second step of ‘how will this effect American children, or the children of legal immigrants?’
The cartoon is particularly poignant because the child having his American dream snatched away is African-American.
Peter Kirsanow, a member of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission, explained in an interview with Tucker Carlson that black males are disproportionately impacted by illegal immigration.
“We’re talking about, at the very low end, hundreds of thousands of blacks losing jobs, probably if you do the math, up to 1.2 million blacks losing jobs,” Kirsanow said. “This has significant, obviously, impacts on the black community.”
All because the left can’t process thoughts more than one step at a time.
