Liberal hatemongers attack female journalist who admits believing in creationism

virginia-heffernan-428x620I have said many times that liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of hate and rage.

That hate and intolerance showed itself when journalist Virginia Heffernan had the audacity to admit in a piece last week that she believes in creationism.  As a result, the intolerant left attacked her mercilessly, with one person calling her a “clueless c**t” on Twitter.

Heffernan, by the way, has had a successful career at The New York Times and Slate, among other outlets, The Blaze said, but that doesn’t matter.

She expressed a personal opinion based on her own readings, and for that, she must PAY and pay DEARLY for daring to believe something the thought Nazis disagree with.

Here’s part of her essay:

I still read and read and listen and listen. And I have never found a more compelling story of our origins than the ones that involve God. The evolutionary psychologists with their just-so stories for everything (“You use a portable Kindle charger because mothers in the primordial forest gathered ginseng”) have become more contradictory than Leviticus. Did you all see that ev-psych now says it’s women who are naturally not monogamous, in spite of the same folks telling us for decades that women are desperate to secure resources for their kids so they frantically sustain wedlock with a rich silverback who will keep them in cashmere?

She also wrote:

I like most people. I don’t fear environmental apocalypse. And I don’t hate religion. Those scientists no doubt see me as a dopey sheep who believes in angels and is carbon-ignorant. I have to say that they may be right.

Prompting Gawker to write:

Okay. Virginia Heffernan is a science-phobic angel-believing climate change skeptic. She just said that. That is what she just said. We are not saying you’re a bad person, Virginia, but you should probably expect that, from now on, when people read your musings on, say, the future of internet communications, they might stop, in a moment of gathering doubt, and recall that you are a science-phobic angel-believing climate change skeptic, and that therefore your dedication to facts is somewhat in question. This could, and should, erode your credibility, in the eyes of those elitist readers who value things that are based on “evidence.” So kudos to you for being brave enough to admit to your own hilarious prejudices again common sense.

Um, no, that’s not what she said at all, but when liberals go on the attack, facts mean nothing.  Apparently, Heffernan’s actual words mean nothing, either.

Slate’s Laura Helmuth also went on the attack.

“Heffernan is a talented writer who sometimes writes about technology, which is made by science and not by angels,” she wrote. “This essay can’t be a good career move.”

Got that?  Believe as we want you to believe or kiss your career goodbye.

This, in a nutshell, demonstrates what liberalism really is.

Not only is it based on rage and hate, it seeks to stifle freedom of thought by destroying anyone or anything that goes against its dogma.

Kudos to Heffernan for having the courage to develop her own views on the subject and the bravery to express them.

In doing so, she also helped expose liberalism for the tyrannical and hateful ideology it really is.
