Current Liberal Tropes, and Crushing Them Beneath Your Sandled Feet

Liberals.  Sheesh.

They think President Trump is destroying democratic conventions?

What about discussing packing the Supreme Court?  Sure, put 12 justices on the Court next time you're in power.  The next time Republicans are in power, we'll put 15.  Genius solution, that.

What about suggesting that the Supreme Court is now illegitimate, or radical right-wing, because you don't like a new justice?
WE DON’T HAVE A “RADICAL RIGHT-WING SUPREME COURT,” despite lots of mewing on the left to the contrary. Here are some things that would be at the top of the list for a radical right-wing Court: (1) ban abortion nationwide as a violation of the right to life protected by the due process clause; (2) rule that publicly-provided (but not funded) education is unconstitutional because it inherently involves viewpoint discrimination by the government, or at least require vouchers for those who object to the public school curriculum; (3) overrule an 1898 precedent and completely abolish birthright citizenship; (4) Use the First Amendment as a sword to require “fairness” in the left-dominated media. Not only is the Supreme Court not about to do any of things, I don’t think any of these things would even get one vote on the current Court. Moreover, merely bringing the scope of Congress’s constitutional back to where it was, say, in 1935, which was already much broader than the original meaning of the Commerce power, probably wouldn’t get more than one or two votes. What you are looking at right now is a conservative Court that will only affect society on the margins, not a “radical right-wing” Court.

What about wanting to eliminate the Electoral College because it doesn't give you the results you want?
FUNNY ABOUT THAT: “Just 10 years ago Dems had the House, 60 person filibuster proof majority in the Senate, the WH, and for some reason there was no serious talk about changing the electoral college or about how unfair it is that small states get equal representation in the senate to large states.” link

What about all their violence?  At worst, President Trump says things that make lefties feel bad.  Talk to Congressman Scalise and Senator Paul about actual violence.  There is no one on the right promoting violence as are lefties, including leftie Congressmen and Senate staffers.  I don't hear anyone on the right defending Antifa's actions in Portland.

What about what Hillary Clinton actually said? "The first few seconds of this are key. Hillary says there can be no civility until the Democrats are back in power. That is the language of would-be totalitarians." link

Lefties like to project their own faults onto others.  Don't let them get away with it.
