Does Loretta Lynch think we’re stupid?
How do you trust pathological liars? How do you let a person who lied to parents whose children were killed in action become commander-in-chief? How do you trust some one who stole White House belongings?
To hear Hillary Clinton tell it, she was named for Sir Edmund Hillary, the conqueror of Mount Everest — even though she was already 6 years old when he made his famous ascent.
On a visit to war-torn Bosnia in 1996, she claimed she and her entourage landed under sniper fire and had to run “with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base” — although videos of her arrival show her waltzing serenely across the tarmac, waving to the crowd.
She blamed the 2012 attack on American diplomatic and intelligence-gathering installations in Benghazi on “a disgusting video” when she knew almost from the first moment that it was a jihadist assault that took the lives of four Americans, including the ambassador to Libya.
Now consider leftism today. Admission to college is given to those groups trained to consider themselves “aggrieved” cadres who are inferior to other students. College courses are often taught by these limited, blindered minds. The legal profession, government, and academia are filled with these unintelligent people, living their own careers surrounded by others just as drearily average and utterly doctrinaire.
Black women like the attorney general get a double-whammy of affirmative action in lowered standards and then are surrounded by other people just as dumb and just as dependent upon parroting the party line as the answer to almost every conceivable issue or question.
There are no real tests, no real challenges, and no real evaluations of these leftists. This explains the blank résumé of Mrs. William Jefferson Clinton: she “was” the first lady; she “was” a senator from New York; she “was” secretary of state – so what? Her statements are all utterly scripted and given to a doting establishment media that never, ever challenges her inconsistencies or asks anything hard.
The pabulum of global warming is accepted as easily as Soviet scientists accepted the idiocy of Lysenko. The same predictable “solutions” are offered for every single problem: more “investment” on education and infrastructure, stronger gun control laws, more draconian environmental regulations, more “diversity,” and more of everything that has never worked in America anywhere and anytime it has been tried.
No one on the left ever needs to think at all, and those who do think risk losing tenure, getting fired from network news programs, and being demonized as racist or sexist or reactionary or something equally silly. Because independent thinking itself is dangerous, no leftist cadre dares to risk trying to think – just read the script, regurgitate the familiar dogma, and keep a closed mind.
Moreover, these folks keep telling each other how smart they are, and no one ever tells them differently. Their résumé of “accomplishment” replaces any need for intelligence, rather like the scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz, who is given by the Wizard a diploma as “proof” of his braininess. Because their “work” is inevitably in such squishy, amorphous occupations as lawyers, politicians, professors, and bureaucrats, which have no real measurable and external standards, all these people ever hear is the praise of fellow robots. Naturally, they believe it. Indeed, seeing the real world would be a devastating personal blow.
This is an alternative explanation to many of the conspiracy theories of conservatives about leftists. When Loretta Lynch has ex parte communication with the spouse of a criminal investigation, it is because she is just not very smart at all. When Hillary sets up a private email server in her basement through which flow state secrets, it is for the same reason that she flunked a bar exam in the District of Columbia that nearly everyone else passed.
Leftism is stupid, and its operatives over time become increasingly dumb and ignorant. We see it, and it is horrifying to believe it – but that is the truth.
