I have a friend like this. Sent him everything linking Trump's accusations to actual evidence of Democrats committing those crimes and trying to project them on Trump for investigating them. Nope, he still believes the hoax accusations. Can't get through to him. I'm not even really debating him, I'm debating all the brainwashing media crap he has watched over the past 4 years. He even took my sources and ran it through a "fact checker" which is basically nothing more than an ignorance justification tool. Finally decided to give him over to what he wants to believe and will hope that over time he will come around. It's good to try at first, but at some point you can't force people to want truth.

Sad ain't it.

The old saying, "you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink", sure is true in this case isn't it!?

It really is, and that saying frames it perfectly. What's scary is when it's people who should know better.

That's exactly right. It's even more frustrating when the horse is dying from dehydration but is too stubborn to even realize it.

Exactly. You will never change everyone's mind.

Look at Socialism as an example. Can you find a historical example of where it didn't end in tyranny? Even Sweden, every egg-head university professor's shining example, has devolved into a tyrannical society (at least if you're a woman or a man who has a sister, wife, mother, girlfriend, or female friend who wants to safely travel city streets) because of the power ceded to the government. Yet, many young people, urban elite, and freeze-dried hippies think Socialism is wonderful and Capitalism is the root of all evil.

Dude I have a friend that has come a long long way. He's currently on Michael Knowles. I'm convinced he'll make it but the ego gets in the way. One of the biggest phases is admitting that you were fooled.
