Remember...

...the good ole days... when opposition to the President, comparisons to Hitler and even overt death threats were seen to be... something other than racism or bigotry or extremism by the elite?

What utter hypocrisy eh?

You would think, that with all the whining our left leaning friends here at wizbang have been doing recently, about us on the right condemning the "extremists violent element in the right wing" that they would be first to come to this post and vehemently condemn the views in this video.

You'd like to think that, but you'd be wrong.

http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/how-should-conservatives-deal-with-the-lefts-disrespect-and-lack-of-empathy/

The reason libs cannot see that their own hate filled and violent elements are wrong. They are unable to see anything from anyone else's point of view. They are unable to get out f their own head intellectually and try to see how the other side sees things.

Conservatives and libertarians don't appear o have the same problem.

This does a good job of explaining the irrational adherence to ideology that obama has. No matter how bad things get his answer is move further left. He is mentally incapable of seeing things in any other way.

The Disadvantages of an Elite Education: an article by William Deresiewicz about how universities should exist to make minds, not careers | The American Scholar

The first disadvantage of an elite education, as I learned in my kitchen that day, is that it makes you incapable of talking to people who aren't like you. Elite schools pride themselves on their diversity, but that diversity is almost entirely a matter of ethnicity and race. With respect to class, these schools are largely--indeed increasingly--homogeneous...

At the same time, because these schools tend to cultivate liberal attitudes, they leave their students in the paradoxical position of wanting to advocate on behalf of the working class while being unable to hold a simple conversation with anyone in it...

But it isn't just a matter of class. My education taught me to believe that people who didn't go to an Ivy League or equivalent school weren't worth talking to, regardless of their class. I was given the unmistakable message that such people were beneath me. We were "the best and the brightest," as these places love to say, and everyone else was, well, something else: less good, less bright. I learned to give that little nod of understanding, that slightly sympathetic "Oh," when people told me they went to a less prestigious college.

...

I also never learned that there are smart people who aren't "smart." The existence of multiple forms of intelligence has become a commonplace, but however much elite universities like to sprinkle their incoming classes with a few actors or violinists, they select for and develop one form of intelligence: the analytic. While this is broadly true of all universities, elite schools, precisely because their students (and faculty, and administrators) possess this one form of intelligence to such a high degree, are more apt to ignore the value of others. One naturally prizes what one most possesses and what most makes for one's advantages. But social intelligence and emotional intelligence and creative ability, to name just three other forms, are not distributed preferentially among the educational elite. The "best" are the brightest only in one narrow sense. One needs to wander away from the educational elite to begin to discover this.

In at least one case, I can think of a graduate of Columbia and Harvard who completely fits the point of this article... especially the part in it about how once you're in you can't hardly flunk out. (It'd still be very interesting to see Obama's transcripts. What sort of grades DID he get?)

But Obama DOES have one very emblematic trait of the 'Elite'. The folks who can't outrank him or rank with him education-wise, aren't even worth considering.

jim m:

It took me just 3 months to hear a conversation amongst college bound HS seniors where this disdain for anyone who attends a non-Ivy League school was apparent.

But what I have found more striking is that when you see the large numbers of local students who get into these universities they really aren't all that special. They are really no different from a Northwestern or a University of Chicago except for that incredible arrogance.

Bruce Henry:

Where's the footage of Al Gore telling these guys that they are Real Americans who should put GOP Congressmen "in the crosshairs" before they can "destroy America as we know it?"

You must have left off the part where prominent Democratic politicians egg these guys on with words like "watering the tree of liberty" and "totalitarian." And where the House Minority Leader of the time claims that Bush is leading the country to "Armageddon."

Oh, and remember that time that Bush was addressing a joint session of Congress and a Democrat yelled "You lie!" in the middle of his speech? Good times, huh?

Both sides have nutjobs, Rick. The difference is, prominent Congressional Democrats (and former VP candidates) didn't encourage this kind of rhetoric. GOP Congressmen (and a former VP candidate) are not only encouraging it, they're participating.

After all these years, someone has exactly put their finger on it......."they select for and develop one form of intelligence: the analytic."

That's why we are in such a freakin mess, you can analyze all you want, and the answer is most likely PERFECTLY correct. But this is not a perfect world so the answer isn't worth shit. Fortunately most of us "unwashed hordes" practice RATIONAL THINKING. (And will reflect that in November)
