Posted on 01/26/2012 11:50:34 AM PST by Dr. Thorne
There's no gentle way to put it: People who give in to racism and prejudice may simply be dumb, according to a new study that is bound to stir public controversy.
Low-intelligence adults tend to gravitate toward socially conservative ideologies, the study found.

And here's the smug, lying bastard now.
This pustule looks like a child molester to me.
The establishment republicans, the liberals, and the moderates also believe the same thing.
If you go to their "about" page, and read the staff bios (and they're all women of the same archetype - let's see the EEOC investigate them!), you'll understand why they don't report any actual science.
That's weird because I see them "gravitating" towards Obama and the food stamp office every day. The boy might want to check his data again. Something is screwed up here.
Low-intelligence adults like William F. Buckley, Pope Benedict, Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill, Samuel Johnson....
“People who give in to racism and prejudice may....become the 1st black President...”
Dress up hate as “science” and peddle it to the leftist rubes who so desparately want to be told they are smarter than those with whom they disagree.
As many conservatives are aware (because they are quite studied and intelligent), the natl socialists created their own science, art, and literature, while labeling others’ views as degenerate. That is, intelligence by decree. That is one of the characteristics of totalitarian regimes in general.
I’d like to see the part of this loon’s “study” that explains why, if they “gravitate toward socially conservative ideologies”, why do they continue to vote for Obama and the ‘RATS.
I already learneds this in publik skool
I don't disagree.
The problem is that liberals, while being by far the most racist and prejudiced among us, deny loudly and try to deflect by claiming these are characteristics of conservatives.
Of course, only dumb people (generally liberals) believe all that because they can't (or won't) see the truth in front of their faces.
I’m a die hard conservative. I’m a Senior Engineer/ Analyst with two Masters degrees (EE and an MBA). I would gladly challenge this ass-hat too an IQ contest!
Even if socially-conservative individuals are more likely to have lower IQs, I could care less. A person’s moral character is what matters, not how high their intelligence is. Some of the most evil men in history were brilliant.
The left has this fixation with proving their superiority over others and it is frightening. You look at people like Margaret Sanger who was a leftist and wanted to sterilize blacks because she felt they were dumber and a drag on society.
Gordo’s keyboard and monitor has dried sperm and fecal matter on it.
Scientists have taken sample scrapings and studied it to confirmed that he’s is a liberal ass bandit and kos kiddo.
If this is for real.. even stupider people copy studies made about them and think that we’ll take their “study” seriously.
In Woody Allen movies the conservative Republicans have brain tumors who return to proper Leftist progressivism when it's removed.
It’s just depressing how we are seeing more and more MORONS these days running around with Ph.D after their name. I guess it goes to show that diplomas ARE nothing more than tuition receipts.
You can't judge a book by it's cover.
However, experience is another thing, and what it has taught me is that the younger a person is, the 'smarter' they think they are.
Sometimes the person who judges by experience or appearances does come up with the right answer, but the survey will always rate the politically correct attitude that people are "supposed" to have as correct and a sign of education and intelligence.
There may be something circular in the findings: what's "proven" is what the people who set up the study assumed to be true when they set up the survey because they defined intelligence as holding the attitudes that they favor.

Liberal Beliefs linked to false sense of superiority and Low I.Q.
“Prejudice” is the honor “common sense” pays to “experience....”
This is very funny. Anyone can see that this study is fake without even bothering to look at it. I’m sure that Lawrence O’Donnell, the fat Minnesota guy, and Madcow on MSNBC will be all over this tonite. They’ll fall for it because it feeds their prejudices.
“People who give in to racism and prejudice may simply be dumb,”
So liberals aren’t so smart. Sort of a ‘water is wet’ kind of statement.
This coming from a guy who associates with folks that aren’t able to differentiate between a toilet and a cop car.
Conservatism...so easy even a caveman can do it.
I would love to test the IQ of the average Obama voter. The democrats own the left side of the Bell Curve.
So racists and bigots gravitate towards the party that fred the sdlaves, lef the civil right movement and championed women’s suffrage? They must really...really....really have low IQs lol.
Communists talking to Progressives. Or maybe vice versa, I dunno, I’m low intelligence.
And liberalism isn’t a simple ideology? Bull hockey!!!
It’s extremely simple. The complexities come because lies beget more lies. Because rationales and justifications have to be developed to justify doing the wrong thing. Because the failures of their policies have to be explained.
I don’t know. Let’s assume that the libs ARE smarter, on average than conservatives. They are also much more naive and FOOLISH.
Their leaders ARE evil. Those that think liberal policies will make their lives better ARE stupid. But the vast majority of those that believe liberal bushwah, and the vast majority of those that vote Democratic, are FOOLS, and there is no other word that can describe them.
If your population consists solely of the more elite of the liberals, and the less elite of the conservatives, you MIGHT get results like this.
There would be considerable overlap, though.
Maybe this young man should say this to the face of Charles Krauthammer, Thomas Sowell or Dr. Williams....
He sure has a purdy mouth.
I think you've nailed it.
Liberals love to put on airs and affect the look of the classic tweedy professor. They like to spin convoluted, verbose arguments and adopt technical, opaque jargon.
They don't want to be understood.
They know, as we do, that truth is fairly simple. Logic is clear and precise. Clear statements can't be denied later on.
I suppose they get credit for being able to construct these verbal labyrinths; I guess it takes at least a certain kind of cunning.
But I like to remind them that we stupid people have the same rights they have, and ask them if we should be excluded just because we're stupid. They can't handle that argument.
When evaluating an ideology, whether or not an ideology has many or few followers or whether the followers are more or less intelligent does not matter. What matters is whether the ideology is objectively true or not and corresponds to reality, and whether or not it is evaluated by the correct standard of value, which is whether or not it is compatible with human nature and is beneficial human life. Conservatism is both objectively true and is a moral value.
It seems to be sort of an idiot savant thing in many cases.
Because low IQ people seek out conservative ideologies?
Seems Gordon has some ‘splaining to do.
This is it. Liberals are just as if not more predjudiced about other people, they just dont realize it, because its "ok" to prejudge SOME people but not others.
Yep, that’s why Democrats are always trying to register voters in prison, because of all the genius IQs there.
LOL! This belief has been floating around academia for a long time but at least now someone will be able to use it to get more action at cocktail parties. Back off man, he’s a scientist!
If I take it at face value I’ll have to question the intelligence of famed anti Christian bigots like Bill Maher, and even doubt the metallurgical brilliance of Rosie O’Donnell given some of her other less charitable statements. Sooo many implications - my little reptilian brain hurts.
Livescience is for papers that they do not wish to be peer-reviewd because they are garbage. I believe that this site has also published papers that claim that there is a nitrogen radical crisis or my personal favorite: A paper that claims that humans are using up all the oxygen and we are all gonna die.
Science fictio would be a better name for the site.
A Mass. court just decided a woman considered mentally ill can be forced to have an abortion and be sterilized.
Some libertarian idiot said he agrees that “people like that” should not have babies. Bet he did not figure he would be classifed as mentally unstable by a socialist controlled system.
That makes sense. The most racist and prejudiced people I see on TV, in Hollywood product and in the MSM are all liberals.
That would tend to support the theory that dumb people tend to be racist and bigoted.
