- Only white people can be racist.
- All white people are racist.
- Black people cannot commit hate crimes. Even if blacks lynch a Jew in the streets of Crown Heights or set a white man on fire, it isn't a hate crime.
- Men are violent. Having testicles means you must constantly resist the urge to rape and beat women.
- The government has an obligation to remove guns from the hands of law-abiding citizens and to leave their hands off women who want to abort fully developed babies from "their bodies".
- Raping a child is acceptable if you're part of the decadent self-indulgent, Hollywood elite. It helps if you fled to Europe to escape persecution for your sexual beliefs.
- Gang-bangers who slaughter families with shotguns, but later go on to write children's books in prison, should be spared the electric chair.
- The death penalty is racist and immoral unless applied to fetuses who threaten to burden the potential mother with all sorts of responsibilities.
- The government has an obligation to force socialist universal health care upon everyone. Dr. Kevorkian's unique form of elder-care should be available on demand (just like cable television). Infanticide. Geronticide. But no pesticides.
- Islam is a beautiful religion. (It is racist to ask them to give examples.)
- Slavery is bad when it is committed by whites. The slavery of the Arab/Islamic world that persists to this day is an entirely different matter, one which cannot be judged through the prism of western eyes.
- The U.N. is a moral institution committed to blah, blah, blah.
- A black president cannot be stupid no matter how stupid he is. Nor can a black president be racist or anti-semitic no matter how many associations he has with racists and anti-semites. If you say otherwise, you must be racist.
- Rape and adultery are bad, unless they were committed by a pig-faced former President who for some inexplicable reason is a darling of leftists, despite eight years of negligence and incompetence.
- Iran isn't a threat to the world. Israel is the problem.
- Looters and rioters who want to f**ck up whitey and get some free s**t have the right to vent by whatever means they deem necessary.
- Israel has no right to protect itself. That would accomplish nothing and might actually harm the peace process.
- Violence is bad unless it is committed by the left. Or by "freedom fighters" who have no choice but to detonate themselves in populated malls.

Female Genital Mutilation, Islam and Leftist Silence – by Jamie Glazov (Frontpage Magazine)
A disturbing article about an even more disturbing practice, the barbaric form of amateur surgery known as female genital mutilation. For those who don't know, this primitive cultural/religious rite is popular in much of the Islamic world, including Jordan and Egypt. Another classic example of how leftists have a selective sense of moral outrage when it comes to dealing with Islam.
Here are some general guidelines, when trying to understand liberal hypocrisy. Liberals believe that:
