TEA= Taxed Enough Already
Hat Tip to Hot Air and Michelle Malkin.
“I’d rather entrust the government of the United States to the first 400 people listed in the Boston telephone directory than to the faculty of Harvard University.”
–– William F. Buckley, Jr.
According to RINO David Brooks, if you’re an opponent of Obama’s socialist agenda, if you’re against the destruction of our national security, economy, and foreign policy, and if you’re a “man-made climate change” apostate, then you’re “uneducated”:
The public is not only shifting from left to right. Every single idea associated with the educated class has grown more unpopular over the past year.
The educated class believes in global warming, so public skepticism about global warming is on the rise. The educated class supports abortion rights, so public opinion is shifting against them. The educated class supports gun control, so opposition to gun control is mounting.
The story is the same in foreign affairs. The educated class is internationalist, so isolationist sentiment is now at an all-time high, according to a Pew Research Center survey. The educated class believes in multilateral action, so the number of Americans who believe we should “go our own way” has risen sharply.
A year ago, the Obama supporters were the passionate ones. Now the tea party brigades have all the intensity.
The tea party movement is a large, fractious confederation of Americans who are defined by what they are against.
So just who, in Brooks’ “educated” mind, is “educated”? Why his beloved Lord and Savior, B. Hussein Obama:
“Obama sees himself as a Burkean,” Brooks says. “He sees his view of the world as a view that understands complexity and the organic nature of change.” Moreover, after the Bush years, Brooks seems relieved to have an intellectual in the White House again. “I divide people into people who talk like us and who don’t talk like us,” he explains. “Of recent presidents, Clinton could sort of talk like us, but Obama is definitely–you could see him as a New Republic writer. He can do the jurisprudence, he can do the political philosophy, and he can do the politics. I think he’s more talented than anyone in my lifetime. I mean, he is pretty dazzling when he walks into a room. So, that’s why it’s important he doesn’t fuck this up.”
I’ve said this before, it applies here, as well:
Obama can’t string together a coherent sentence when his teleprompter quits. He thinks 10,000 people were killed by a single tornado in Kansas, that there are 57 states, one of which is called “New Pennsylvania”, where the “Nitally Lions” play. He also thinks the White Sox play in “Cominsky Field”, “Austrian” is spoken in Austria, and that Iran is a “tiny country”.
What a Harvard-educated moron.
He’s an abject failure; a Jimmy Carter 2.0 socialist with a disastrous ecomomic policy, and a foreign policy that makes Neville Chamberlain look like a tough guy.
Other than that, he’s a fucking genius.
I’m a voracious reader. I have an Associates Degree. I served a total of 30 years as a United States Soldier, with experience in geo-political, strategic, and tactical intelligence.
I did two tours in Iraq and deployed to Bosnia. I have extensive training in force protection, and operational, physical, and information security. I’ve been around the world. All things considered, I’m fairly educated.
I’ll provide a glaring example of the real uneducated class. When thousands of people showed up in Detroit to retrieve what they thought was free government money, Ken Regalsky, from WJR conducted an interview with a sampling of the crowd:
Ken Regalsky: “Why are you here?”
Woman: “To get some money”
Ken Regalsky: “What kind of money?”
Woman: “Obama money.”
Ken Regalsky: “Where’s it coming from?”
Ken Regalsky: “And where did Obama get it?”
Woman: “I don’t know…his stash…I don’t know…(laughs)….I don’t know where he got it from but he giving it to us…to help us…
Another woman chimes in: “We love him!”
Woman: “We love him, that’s why we voted for him”
Both women: “Obama, Obama, Obama!”
When Regalsky asked another woman where she thought the money was coming from she replied:
Woman: “I believe it’s coming from the um…city of Detroit or the state…
Regalsky: “Where do they get it from?”
Woman: “Some funds that was given by Obama.”
Regalsky: “And where did Obama get the funds?”
Woman: “Obama done gettin’ the funds from…um…I have no idea, tell you the truth…he’s the President…
I’m a Tea Party supporter. In Brooks’ opinion, that makes me one of the “uneducated”. We’re educated enough to know that socialism is an epic fail. It stifles freedoms—from speech to business enterprise.
Now along comes a pompous “educated” asslown to inform the ignorant masses that we just don’t know what’s good for us.
This “educated” fool doesn’t realize that “man-made climate change” is a farce, and that “gun control” usually affects law abiding, gun-owning citizens, not criminals who couldn’t care less. He thinks relinquishing our sovereignty to a corrupt entity like the U.N. and deferring to an “internationalist” community is a wonderful idea. Brooks also thinks that in spite of a hostile, socialist-leaning/Dhimmi-influenced European Union, that we should rely on “multilateral action” to ensure and protect America’s interests.
Brooks conveniently omits the collection of ‘educated class’ Alinsky-ites who caused this economic and foreign policy train wreck to begin with.
Put on the pointy hat and go sit in the corner, Dave.
