You have to admire the inconsistent hysteria of leftwing logic in the United States today. The entire ideology is premised on emotional responses where its acolytes typically say “I feel” instead of “I think,” which is one of the few things they say that does not contradict other things they say.

For example, leftwing logic will tell us that the GOP will kill 22 million people by allowing those people to opt out of Obamacare. But leftwing logic also tells us that the GOP is rushing through a plan to repeal Obamacare and no one knows what’s in it. But they are sure 22 million people will die.

Leftwing logic also tells us that old people need to die, as Bill Nye claims and progressives defend. But the GOP is bad for allegedly throwing grandma off a cliff.

Leftwing logic tells us we need population control and we need to have fewer people to stop global warming, but they are appalled at 22 million people dying under the GOP healthcare plan, which isn’t even true.

That just tells us that if the GOP called their plan a climate change bill and guaranteed 22 million deaths, some on the left would cheer it.

Additionally, the left is out there now telling everyone that they need to lower their standard of living, scale back on travel, turn off the air conditioning, hang clothes out to dry, and stop washing dishes in the dish washer. But they concurrently believe the government of the United States can improve health care and keep it advancing on the cutting edge. Somehow in this leftwing utopia we will all be burning cow dung for heat, but we’ll have gold plated health care.

None of it adds up and none of it is consistent. These people really look at the GOP and think they would kill 22 million people as opposed to acknowledging the GOP just has an alternate plan to take care of those who need to be taken care of while letting those who can take care of themselves do so.

It is a more damning indictment of leftwing logic that they think Republicans will actually kill people than it is of the GOP’s actual healthcare plan. Lefty logic is inconsistent, emotional hysteria like something derived from a women and gender studies class.
