The New York Times has produced a stunning video entitled “Liberal Hypocrisy is Fueling American Inequality. Here’s How”. It amounts to a devastating indictment of actual liberal behavior when contrasted with alleged policy values. The Times contends that liberals are very good at putting up lawn signs and going to marches. But when the rubber hits the road, liberals are among the fiercest fighting against implementation of their supposed values. They simply represent the unvarnished NIMBY (Not in My Back Yard) standard.
I one sense there is nothing new in this critique. Libertarians have been saying much the same things about liberal hypocrisy (or cognitive dissonance take your pick) for decades. To be sure, plenty of libertarians disagree with many if not most of the proffered policy solutions. But what is important about this is that it is the New York Times, of all places, that has published this critique.
Take a look at the YouTube video below.
