Why lies are essential to leftists.

History and biology have not been kind to the left. It’s no accident, as Marxists used to say, that the nomenklatura is so fixated on language, and so ready to persecute violators of its shibboleths. Its grip on power and its programs depend on obfuscation. Leftists have become expert weavers of the emperor’s new clothes.[1]
If you want a taste of the leftist imperative, just find the video of Chris Matthews asking Debbie Whatsername-Shoots about the difference between Democrats and socialists. The lady was about to have a heart attack at this ambush and slithered away to the best of her ability until she had reframed the question as, "What's the difference between a Democrat and a Republican." Yup. That was the question that was asked alright.

It was a sight to behold. A lot like watching Whoopi Goldberg suck her big toe after Thanksgiving dinner.

How do they do that?
