An issue Rep. Tom Reed revealed during his July luncheon was how successful liberal, progressive democrats were in slandering the Tea Party! Using the Saul Alinsky demonizing methods the Tea Party has been cast a racist, redneck, knuckle dragging terrorist, KKK, morons! The vast majority of the American people believe this including many republicans!
The Congressional Black Caucus members have called Tea Party members racist saying they would like to lynch blacks! Rep. Maxine Waters invited the Tea Party to go to hell! Vice President Joe Biden, Senators Harry Reid and John Kerry along with Obama talking heads David Axelrod and Howard Dean have branded Tea Partiers as terrorists.
Yale Law Professor Dan M. Kahan conducted an analysis of the scientific comprehension of diverse political groups. He was shocked to find Tea Party supporters are more scientifically literate than the non-tea party voting population!
Professor Kahan admitted, “I’ve got to confess, though, I found this result surprising. As I pushed the button to run the analysis on my computer, I fully expected I’d be shown a modest negative correlation between identifying with the Tea Party and science comprehension.”
Professor Kahan went on to reveal, “But then again, I don’t know a single person who identifies with the Tea Party. All my impressions come from watching cable TV and I don’t watch FOX News very often – and reading the “paper” (New York Times daily, plus a variety of politics-focused internet sites like Huffington Post & Politico).”
Professor Kahan exhibited integrity that is often absent in our ivy covered towers of higher education saying, “I’m a little embarrassed, but mainly I’m just glad that I no longer hold this particular mistaken view.”
Sean Penn should be embarrassed making his drug induced delusions public on the Piers Morgan propaganda show! Penn’s vision of Castro’s Cuba as Utopia is certainly warped! Casting good average Americans who just want to use the mechanisms provided by our Founding Fathers in the Constitution to constrain government spending and corruption, ignoring the constitution and quest for complete power as racist, terrorist, mentally ill morons is bent!
Professor Kahan’s revelations should be a signal to all academics, actors and journalists who spend their time in their particular “Ideological Spheres”. Their thoughts molded and petrified by their politically stagnant environment and the prevailing thinking within that environment! It seems this is characteristically what most of our colleges and universities have become, indoctrinators of their prevalent political views!
