Here are some common liberal tricks that many people fall for:

  1. "live and let live!" except when it comes to praying aloud in school, keeping the money you earn, building on your own property, and every other liberal issue
  2. it doesn't hurt to try!
  3. everyone else supposedly believes in something so it must be right
  4. your parents aren't cool
  5. Hollywood is cool
  6. there is a shortage of everything we want
  7. prayer is for dummies, or is antiquated
  8. kids are getting smarter than old folks
  9. smear your adversary with a highly offensive accusation or insinuation
  10. atheism equals intelligence
  11. call someone a racist if he criticizes a liberal having a different skin color
  12. conservatives don't care about regular people
  13. vandalism is ok
  14. if you don't like it (something offensive on television), don't watch it (but they don't seem to go for if you don't like whales being killed, don't watch them being killed).
  15. don't kill the shark that attacked someone; the person invaded the shark's territory (ignoring/rejecting that all of creation was made for man).
  16. insist on protecting the First Amendment by preventing organized prayer in classrooms, while attempting to water down the Second Amendment by placing waiting periods on gun purchases.
  17. claiming that vaccinating your children is safe but shaking them isn't.

Example

Here is an example of an actual attempt at liberal tricks that was posted on this very page:

This article, and many others on a similar line, are a sad demonstration of incipient mental illness. Andrew Schlafly appears to be an educated man - after all, he edited a legal journal which was later edited by Barack Obama (I assume that Andy's tenure wasn't a result of affirmative action in favour of the narrow minded and the bigoted) - yet his denunciations of 'liberalism' get ever wilder and more paranoid as his definition of that beknighted state become ever more encompassing.

The above example (by a non-American) attempts to smear a conservative by implying that he has a mental illness, reflecting liberal trick #8 above. To someone unfamiliar with liberal tricks, this can be upsetting and intimidating. But once one realizes that this is a basic trick from the liberal playbook, its silliness and ineffectiveness becomes obvious. The liberal's foolish tactic is then revealed for what it really is.--Aschlafly 10:02, 24 February 2008 (EST)
