The reason the word "liberal" is always in quotation marks when addressing
morons like lojbab is that it's an insult to the English language to use
such a previously good word to describe the STUPIDITY of someone who would
argue that races don't exist at the same time that they argue that anyone
who challenges their STUPIDITY is a "racist".

It's become obvious that such "liberals" use this term as a mere debate
tactic because they "think" they score some kind of debate points whenever
they repeat media mantra that they can never hope to fully appreciate or

If it's got a nice ring or bite to it, then it's good enough for a
"liberal"--but attempting to get them to clarify their ambidextrous
"thinking" is like asking a tree to bark.
