They Are Not Smarter Than You

One of the things that intimidates regular people, and deters them from standing up to liberals, is the overall perception–largely created and fostered by liberals themselves–that liberals are intellectuals, terribly smart people who must be taken seriously. That would include virtually all Democrats.

In my lifetime, every Democrat who ever ran for president was depicted as a genius by the liberal-biased nooze media, and every Republican, an utter ass.  There’s even a little formula that goes with this.

*Liberals/Democrats went to expensive schools, so they must be smart.  *They are in favor of things that don’t make any sense to us, so they must be smarter than us.   *Conservatives are in favor of a lot of the same things we’re in favor of, and against most of the things that we’re against–so they mustn’t be that smart.

In reality, liberal politicians are no smarter than you are, and probably a great deal less. Al Gore, for instance–Mr. “The Science is Settled!”–has no more science background than a mud puppy.Image result for images of mud puppies

Raised in the bubble of the hereditary political class, he has a political science degree–big deal, I’ve got one, too–and tried his hand at both law school and divinity school without finishing either one.  I guess it’s poetic justice that such a scarecrow as Gore should be the spokesman for a thoroughly corrupt and politicized scientific establishment, one dominated by prostitutes. But at least his non-existent science background goes a very long way to explaining his persistent refusal to debate his Global Warming/Climate Change/We’re-all-gonna-die message. Up against any kind of scientific opposition, he’d get creamed.

The point is, none of these left-wing philosopher-kings has any more intelligence than God gave to a mealworm. Fear them not! Any satirist worth his salt can mow them down like grass.

Remember Obama and his 57 states–and his total mystification by the very concept of saving or creating jobs in America–you would’ve thought it was magic, on a par with spinning straw into gold–and how Donald Trump, before he was even inaugurated, took common-sense action that has so far  brought back thousands of jobs. But then Trump is not a genius.

Liberals: no, they don’t want you to look behind the curtain!

    I agree, Lee and Watchman. Just for fun, I found a sight that listed the I.Q.
    numbers for several past presidents, other officials and some actors and actresses, etc. I had to chuckle when I saw the numbers: all but a couple had lower IQ than mine, and I certainly don’t consider myself brilliant. (and I’m not), but if those numbers were legitimate, they have nothing to crow about. lol

    What I find astounding is how completely the news and entertainment media have succeeded in making the average person completely reliant upon external validation. Because of this, these people are more than happy to let someone they see on TV tell the, what to believe.

    If Al Gore lacks any scientific background why is he perceived as an authority on climate matters? Here’s an even better question, why do people see Leonardo Di Caprio as an authority on such matters? I’ll answer my own questions; they are perceived as authorities because they are recognizable from TV and movies.

    Most people seem to think that anyone on TV must be more important than they, the viewer. In reality, it is just the opposite. If no one watches (or buys newspapers, etc) these public figures melt into obscurity . . . instantly.

    At the bottom line, it comes down to individual responsibility. If people appoint others as their superiors, they can appear to evade responsibility, but it’s an illusion. Just look at what happened when people did that 70+ years ago in Germany.

      All you gotta do is read the cue cards, and you’re instantly a sage.

      And no one ever calls them out! Well, all right, I just did, and you just did, but who cares what we say? We’re not on TV! Wouldn’t you just love, just once, to see somebody interviewing Al Gore and say, “Er, Al, I see you have no scientific background whatsoever, and yet here you are, running around and saying ‘The science is settled! We’re doomed!’ Is that why you have consistently refused to debate this issue? Because you’re afraid of being exposed as a prating fool?” Wouldn’t you love to see that!

    It would make my day- for many days. Finally, something worthwhile

    I would love to see that.

    Ultimately, these people will be shown up, God himself promises that what is low will be put on high and what is on high will be put low. Will it happen in Gore’s lifetime? It just may.

    I agree completely Erlene. Television itself, the technology of transmitting pictures and sound over a distance, is a wonderful tool, but it sure isn’t put to good use, these days.
