Camille Paglia & The Trouble With Triberals

Triberals is a word I just invented. It is the melding of Tribbles and Liberals.

Tribbles is a reference to a famous Star Trek episode.

The current Wikipedia entry summarizes the episode thusly:
“Cuddly creatures turn into a menace quickly when they reproduce out of control”
“Cuddly creatures”, which “purr a relaxing trill that the crew… find soothing” but which“threaten to consume all the onboard supplies” reminds me of:

1) Jonah Goldberg’s book where Liberal Fascism is imposed under the placard of a happy face.

2) The deficit spending of the Dims.

Furthermore, the big three propaganda vectors -- government schools, state run media and “entertainment” -- have caused these menacing “cuddly creatures” to “reproduce out of control” and become a dire threat to our Republic and our freedom.

Although Tribbles were -- in some respects -- warm, fuzzy, cuddly and soothing, they were not terribly intelligent. And, attempting to debate a Triberal is quite analogous. For example, I have presented mounds of solid data and peer reviewed science which thoroughly debunks any suggestion that we are on the precipice of Man Made Catastrophic Climate Change. Yet, when a Triberal is presented with this evidence, the always predictable response is:

1) Triberals do NOT examine the evidence.

2) Triberals smear the messenger rather than address the evidence.

3) Triberals do everything possible to silence the messenger.

4) Triberals simply regurgitate some platitude handed down from their authoritarian “leaders” (typically Al Gore or the IPCC).

No matter the issue at hand, this is typical of the response from Triberals. Triberals have not merely lost the ability to think for themselves, they openly scorn anybody who does as lacking the authority to do so.

And, that brings us full circle to just ONE FACET of the latest, greatest essay from DEMOCRAT Camille Paglia -- who may just be the very last independent thinker among the entire Dim party:

Quoting an absolute MUST READ from DEMOCRAT Camille Paglia:
“affluent middle-class Democrats now seem to be complacently servile toward authority and automatically believe everything party leaders tell them. Why? Is it because the new professional class is a glossy product of generically institutionalized learning? Independent thought and logical analysis of argument are no longer taught. Elite education in the U.S. has become a frenetic assembly line of competitive college application to schools where ideological brainwashing is so pandemic that it's invisible. The top schools, from the Ivy League on down, promote "critical thinking," which sounds good but is in fact just a style of rote regurgitation of hackneyed approved terms ("racism, sexism, homophobia") when confronted with any social issue. The Democratic brain has been marinating so long in those clichés that it's positively pickled.”
An independent thinker buried in Triberals.
