This gem from John Nolte came across my Twitter feed the other day: “Met Brian Williams once in DC. Starting to wonder about that story he told me about saving all those hostages at Nakotami Plaza. Barefoot.”
Brian Williams is a liar. I don’t mean that as an insult. He seems nice. I feel sorry for the poor sap. People who lie are called liars. Once you’re caught in a lie, or multiple lies as the case may be, your credibility is shot. You’re now open to ridicule and scorn. You can, and should apologize, as Williams has done, but earning back the trust of those you have lied to takes time and is often never achieved. Actions have consequences. Forgiveness? Sure. Trust? Maybe, maybe not.
Like most in the media, Williams is also a hardcore liberal. While not all liberals are liars, lying is endemic to hardcore liberalism. It is a natural byproduct of moral relativism, the worldview from which liberalism derives.
The staff at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) are liberal liars. Again, I don’t mean this as an insult. As we’ve thus noted, those who lie are, by definition, liars. I’m sure that many at this “progressive” outfit’s multi-million dollar Montgomery, Alabama, headquarters are otherwise decent people who believe that, in an ends-justifies-the-means sort of way, their lies are excusable.
