Liberal denial is the tendency of liberals to conceal, deny or censor:

  • examples of how the liberal ideology harms people
  • admitting that that they are liberals themselves
  • how the liberal ideology is pushed on unsuspecting others, particularly youngsters

Hillary Clinton, for example, refused to admit in a presidential debate in 2007 that she is a liberal. Michael Dukakis refused for a while to admit that he was a liberal during the 1988 presidential campaign, until finally he declared himself to be a liberal in the sense that President Harry Truman, who served 40 years earlier, was a liberal.

There are also specific examples of liberals denying, for ideological reasons, facts that are plainly true:

  1. that the numerous premature deaths of Hollywood stars are the result of Hollywood Values
  2. that successful democracy, both historically and logically, is the result of Protestant Christianity
  3. that Lawrence Summers was fired as President of Harvard for making a politically incorrect suggestion about women and math aptitude
  4. that Ronald Reagan's public exhortation, "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall" caused the nearly 30-year-old wall to be torn down later
  5. that gun control may increase crime
  6. that group prayer is censored from public school
  7. that reducing taxes stimulates the economy
  8. that abortions increase the likelihood of breast cancer
  9. that the mainstream media has a liberal bias
  10. that private transport is more efficient than public transport
  11. that public health care is poor medical care
