Top 10 Wacky Liberal Beliefs in Phoenix

Liberals in metro Phoenix, much like their counterparts on the right, have sacred cows ripe for slaughter. Here are 10 of them:

10. Private prisons are 100 percent evil. Never mind the death, rape, and mayhem in public prisons and jails.

3. Criticizing rioters and looters in other cities, like these folks in Baltimore, is a sign of "white privilege."
