Liberal projection is the liberal debating tactic where 'A' accuses their enemy 'B' of doing what 'A' is actually already doing. In politics, the classical example is accusing your opponent of a smear campaign while running one yourself.
Some examples of liberal projection include:
- Accusing conservatives of suppressing free speech, while censoring Conservative viewpoints.
- Claiming "freedom of religion" to oppress Christianity.
- Saying their opponents are moral degenerates while tolerating homosexuality.
- Acting as if conservative politicians are irredemably corrupt, while ignoring graft among liberal ones.
- Claiming conservatives are "closed minded" while ignoring scientific theories.
