The left like to think of themselves as “liberal” and in favour of freedom. Well as many on the right would point out, they are generally anything but liberal, being liberal on sexual matters and restrictive on pretty well everything else, that is part and parcel of being socialist.
I thought I’d compare the Green party website and the Family Party website and see how often the word “ban” appears, using a Google search. It’s been done before on the blogs, but I can’t find the original to quote.
The word “ban” appears 1,010 times on the Green Party website today, click here to check for yourself.
It appears 76 times on the Libertarianz site. (here)
It appears a total of THREE times on the Family Party website! (see here)
Furthermore, the three times the word “ban” appears are:
- “Be open to debate on dropping the ban”
- “remove the ban”
- “energy and resources to ban gang patches would be better spent on the war against drug dealing.”
In other words, each is talking AGAINST a ban!
Very unscientific of course, but the contrast is still incredible. So who is really promoting freedom, the conservatives or the so-called liberals?
