Liberal claptrap is pretentious nonsense promoted by liberals. It has the wordy characteristics of liberal style, typically with self-serving conclusions.
Liberal claptrap leaves the audience with nothing of substance, nothing that will help them personally overcome the inevitable problems of life, such as addiction.
Liberal claptrap often pushes the listener toward an illogical viewpoint without saying so in a direct manner. It seeks to attract attention to liberals and away from God.
The Bible criticizes liberal claptrap in 1 Corinthians 1:17. Paul also warns against deceit in atheistic philosophy at Colossians 2:8 .
