Came across these little gems in MutantX and Bab5. They describe latte leftistism rather well.
From an early episode of MutantX:
It's classic denial. A mind that can't deal with the facts just willing them out of existence.
From the Babylon 5, season 4 episode The Deconstruction of Falling Stars:
You don't want to know. You only want to speak.
In law, "Ignorance of the law is no defense"
i.e. the fact that you do not know that an act is a crime defined by statute, is no defense if you are charged.
This is something of which all these lazy-thinking leftists, who don't do any of their own research but have strong opinions anyway, should be continually reminded.
Ignorance (of the subject matter at hand) is not a defense
Getting back to "not being able to deal with the facts", we have this well-known quote by that well-known socialist:
A single death is a tragedy,
a million deaths is a statistic.

Finally - as this post is all about quotes - these words are of great relevance:
Nothing ever becomes real till it is experienced - even a proverb is no proverb to you till your life has illustrated it.
-- John Keats --
