Comedian Evan Sayet: Liberals ‘Have Actually Turned Thinking Into A Hate Crime’

avatar

Conservative comedian Evan Sayet explained why the American left is so opposed to argument or debate, arguing that liberals view thought as so inextricably bound to race, identity and orientation that they “have actually turned thinking into a hate crime.”

Sayet spoke at the Unite IE Conservative Conference in Riverside, California this weekend, where he discussed how liberals consume and process information very differently from other political ideologies.

“Liberals only do well when they lecture to you,” he asserted. “They do just fine on the 23-minute nightly news, where [NBC’s] David Gregory dictates the truth to you. Take those same arguments to the debate and discussion programs on cable, and it’s only Fox News.”

“They have cowed us into not speaking,” he continued. “For one thing we’re polite, and they have made debate and discussion something that is ugly. ‘You’re a racist, you’re a bigot, you’re a homophobe, you’re a xenophobe.'”

“They have actually turned thinking into a hate crime!” he declared. “The concept behind this is that anything you believe . . . is so tainted by your personal prejudices — the fact that you’re white, the fact that you’re black, the fact that you’re tall, the fact that you’re short, that you’re fat, you’re skinny, you’re rich, you’re poor — anything you believe is going to be just a reflection of your prejudices.”

“Therefore the only way not to be a bigot is to never think at all,” Sayet explained. “So it’s not that the liberal is stupid, it’s that he has made thinking into something he will not engage in.”

Hating Jesus: The American Left's War on Christianity

Matt Barber with Paul Hair

The secular left doesn’t merely have a disagreement with Christianity. These are not people with whom one may reason, compromise or even disagree. They are dedicated to evil. They demand nothing less than the abolition of the biblical worldview, and the destruction of Christ’s followers right along with it.

Now is the time to fight back. If you are someone, Christian or not, who refuses to see Christianity wiped out (like it ever could be) and your children indoctrinated into pure evil, then sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option.
