A CONVENTION OF FOOLS ^ | 09/06/11 | Bob Lonsberry

Posted on 09/06/2011 5:39:30 AM PDT by shortstop

Over the weekend, a convention of political scientists met in Seattle.

The idiots.

The last weekend of summer, all of America celebrating a holiday, and they schedule a meeting.

At which, it seems, their prime purpose was to provide political fodder against the tea party. A genuine social phenomenon occurs in our day, it impacts American elections, and those who presumably study such things are so wedded to partisan objective that they don’t study it, they propagandize against it.

They are an echo of so-called weather scientists who, living through a global warming cycle, do not study it, but seek to exploit it for partisan advantage.

The colleges have stopped teaching and the reporters have stopped reporting and two foundational institutions have become useless havens for saboteurs and anarchists. The attack against American culture and western thought is being launched from the subverted institutions of their natural defense.

Nowhere is this more true than in the political science departments of America’s colleges and universities. There is no science in the field, nor public use, just a variety of leftists, contemptuous of the social will they ostensibly study, ensconced like tapeworms in the bowels of academia. They contribute nothing and weaken the whole, and profit undeservedly from the lingering esteem which hangs tattered on the shoulders of higher education.

Their only role, providing teachers assistantships to acolytes and offering savagery to reporters in the name of commentary.

I doubt there is a person in this country, outside the political science departments of our colleges, who takes seriously a single word which issues forth from those departments. Any objectivity of analysis ended with black-and-white television and all professorial comment is mere surrogacy for the Democratic and internationalist left.

They are Pavlovian dogs, barking and snarling on cue, carping self-importantly about the evils of conservative or traditional values and principles.

Like the reports this weekend.

Lo and behold, it is the view of America’s political scientists that the seminal issue of the tea party is racism, that bigotry is its motivating drive and xenophobia its religion.

Amazingly, that is exactly what liberal activists and Democrat politicians have said, over and over, all reading from the same set of talking points, beating down an uprising that cost them the House of Representatives.


The political scientists – a rare cross between lapdogs and myna birds – chime in on the chorus of the Democratic Party’s song of defamation against the tea party. Long since realizing that arguing against the ideas of conservatives led to nothing but failure and public rejection, the left resorted completely to personal destruction through public mockery and lampooning.

The prime tool for the advance of liberalism in America is the systematic attacking of conservatives. Defining them in the public eye – through the public media – as clowns and buffoons, and thereby marginalizing them, is the only way liberals can beat them.

And so the media and the professors define as stupid and unstable people like Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry.

The tea party, a more potent political force, gets the nuclear treatment. In the amorality of the left, the only absolute truth is that the accusation of racism is unquestioned and condemning. Call your opponent a racist, and he is.

And that is how the political science professors describe the tea party.

Forget the claims of tea party members to the contrary. Forget the signs and credos, lining out with great specificity the grievances and principles of the tea party, the tea party is the new KKK and tea party gatherings are nothing but Klan rallies and cross burnings.

That is the declaration of the professors.

They know the tea party better than the members of the tea party do themselves.

At least that’s what the professors claim.

And the media is perfectly happy to quote them.

And the Democrats are nervously hoping it works.

Specifically, the Democrats are nervously hoping that America’s minorities – the key to Democratic electoral success – can be kept on the political plantation through frightening stories of conservative boogie men.

It’s sad, really. But it works.

Or at least the Democrats hope it works.

The political scientists of America met in convention over the weekend. And continued their march into irrelevance.

Nice rant, but no quotes.

Ask the maids and janitors at the motels where the political science conventions take place about what goes on. They have to toss out most of the mattresses because of all the bed wetting. The attendees are always angry at the maids because the maids knock on the door and, from force of habit, the old professors flush all their drugs down the toilet. The doddering old fools are always yammering about the bourgeoisie and the proletariat and then they scream at the help because the toilet paper isn’t soft enough.

“Political Science” is one of those “higher education” jokes that is also an oxymoron.

When some of my undergrad students figured that calculus and differential equations were beyond their ken, they switched to political science.

Why tax their little brains when they can simply memorize things that may or may not be true?

Good writing.

The Communists infiltrated the Democrat party years - decades - ago in the way a virus insinuates itself into a human cell and forces the cell to produce viri.

So now their method with Sarah and Bachmann and The Tea Parties is Saul Alinsky’s: “Freeze it; isolate it and annihilate it.

As for name-calling, the Marxist way is to control the narrative, and really, the language itself. They’ve re-written the dictionary, so that “racist” means “not in favor of illegal immigration”, “social justice” means quotas paying off Democrat voters and “choice” means murdering babies.

God sees it all He and will not forget.

Any major with “Science” in its name isn’t real science. Any major with “Studies” in its name isn’t worthy of study.
