One of the most mind-boggling results of Tuesday's elections in Virginia and elsewhere, in which left-wing candidates did not fare well, has been the reaction of the progressive ultra-liberal left to their loss. Typical of it has been this tweet from someone using the name Helen Carter:
I thought at first that this had to be a parody Twitter account. I couldn't believe that someone could be so blind to reality (not to mention so unconsciously racist) as to truly hold those opinions. However, an examination of Helen Carter's Twitter account shows that she posts equally daft opinions on other topics. She's living in a far-left-wing version of cloud cuckoo land. She's five cents short of a nickel when it comes to reality. Note this pinned tweet:
Talk about the fallacy of invincible ignorance! As Robert Heinlein put it, "Never attempt to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and annoys the pig." However, Ms. Carter is far from alone. There are many others like her.
Do any of you, readers, have more examples of such ideologically-blind-to-reality frustration, on either the left or the right of the political spectrum? Both sides are equally guilty of them, I'm sure. If you do, please share them with us in Comments.
