Liberal denial is the tendency of liberals to conceal, deny or censor the truth for ideological reasons:

  1. that young mass murderers fit the profile of public school-trained atheism
  2. that the numerous premature deaths of Hollywood stars are the result of Hollywood values[1]
  3. that homeschoolers often do better than those who attend public school
  4. that culture affects politics, and people's views and lifestyles
  5. that successful democracy, both historically and logically, is the result of Protestant Christianity[2]
  6. that Lawrence Summers was fired as President of Harvard for making a politically incorrect suggestion about women and math aptitude
  7. that Ronald Reagan's public exhortation, "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall," helped cause the nearly 30-year-old Berlin Wall later be torn down
  8. that gun control may increase crime
  9. that group prayer is censored from public school
  10. that reducing taxes stimulates the economy
  11. that choosing abortion over childbirth increases the risk of breast cancer
  12. that the mainstream media is biased
  13. that privately-run transport is more efficient than government-run transport
  14. that public health care is inferior medical care
  15. that unions interfere with employment opportunities
  16. that Islamic extremism is a threat to the Western civilization[3]
  17. that banning same-sex marriage is analogous to banning polygamy
  18. that aggressive interrogation is often the only way to obtain answers from terrorists
  19. how the liberal ideology harms people
  20. how the liberal ideology is pushed on unsuspecting others, particularly youngsters

Often liberals refuse to admit that they are liberals, in the hoping of appearing more reasonable. Hillary Clinton refused to admit in a presidential debate in 2007 that she is a liberal. Similarly, Michael Dukakis refused for a while to admit that he was a liberal during the 1988 presidential campaign, however he later declared himself to be a liberal, only in the sense that President Harry Truman, who served 40 years earlier, was a liberal.
