I have found the perfect metaphor for the limited intellect & arrogance of a liberal, the pesticide DDT.
DDT when widely in use was considered a miracle pesticide. Not only was it effective but it biodegraded in the environment rapidly and was completely
non-toxic to humans and other life forms versus any other pesticide available. Its use had effectively reduced deaths from malaria by killing off
mosquitoes to less than 100,000 people per year. After it was banned based upon a book written by Rachel Carson (May she burn in hell) that had no
scientific merit what so ever. Her only assertion about its danger was that a certain species of bird did not appear although other birds in the same
habitat, nesting grounds and feeding areas were thriving. The facts or science did not get in the way as liberal “glue heads that had gone
organic” got it banned and subsequently coerced the rest of the world to go along. Since, its use stopped, malaria deaths alone have reportedly
reached pre-DDT levels of as many as 10,000,000 per year in tropical third world countries.
This is classic liberal thought process. The left has massive campaigns to redistribute wealth or take away liberty to save lives from aids,
starvation, obesity, guns and war none of which even remotely approach the number of deaths per year from malaria and other insect bourn diseases.
Liberals would not consider removing the ban on DDT that was based upon completely fallacious science.
The final irony is that the same liberals that knowingly sacrifice starving children (to use the omnipresent liberal metaphor for any cause) at the
altar of the environment are now at last discussing allowing the use of DDT. The reason; “bed bugs” parasites are now infesting New York City.
Liberals that allow millions to die for an environmental cause only now have a change of heart because they might get bit on the ass. A perfect
metaphor describing the circle of liberal/elitist arrogance.
