Progressives love statistics. That’s because progressives lie. We know, as Mark Twain knew, that statistics lie; and progressives love nothing more than lies and propaganda.
There are lies, damned lies and statistics. Mark Twain
Examples of lying statistics that progressives embrace are those that “prove” that racial profiling exists in traffic stops, that minority groups suffer from voter suppression, and that blacks get inferior health care, all because of racism.
