Skip to comments.Obama's enemies: Republicans and the uneducated (Barf Alert)
Posted on 03/26/2010 7:47:03 AM PDT by Responsibility2nd
New research in the US suggests a large minority of Americans hold extreme opinions on president Barack Obama.
A poll by market research company Harris Interactive shows that not only do two in five Americans believe Obama is a "socialist", but one-third still believe he is Muslim.
A full 38 percent believe he is going to take away US citizens' right to hold arms; 29 percent that he wants to sell-out the US to a "one-world government"; 27 percent that he resents the country's heritage; and 23 percent that he is a racist and anti-American, alike. But this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Again, 23 percent of Americans believe he wants to use a terrorist attack or economic collapse to take "dictatorial powers"; one-fifth say he is doing "many of the things" that Adolf Hitler did; and 14 percent believe he is none other than the Anti-Christ. That's almost one in every seven.
Perhaps the least surprising discovery from the poll of 2320 adults across the US is that views on Obama closely reflect the respondent's political affiliation and education.
Republicans predictably view Obama less favourably than Democrats; but more tellingly, the less education a person has, the likely they are to agree with a negative statement about the president in every single category polled, without exception.
Independent voters' views generally fall between the two extremes, whilst voters with post grad qualifications are in some cases four times more likely to side with Obama than those with only a high school education or less.
Poll respondents' answers were weighted to bring them into line with population demographics. Harris Interactive says because the selected respondents were chosen from a larger pool of participants, no mathematical margin of error can be inferred

Really?! Obama's enemies are republicans and democrats?
gotta love an article with uneducated in the title than goes on to talk about a “large minority”....sort of an oxymoron like sensible liberal or smart democrat....
Leftists always tout that they have a higher representation in those with “post-graduate degrees”,
but these are the people hiding out in that magic fairy land called “academia” where their skewed worldviews have no consequences on their livelihood.
People in the real world, making an honest living, lean more conservative.
Yikes - This was part of a “legitimate” news broadcast?
Including 100% of the Muslims.
What a bunch of nonsense. There are educated people on both sides of the political aisle. I would venture to say, however, that those who are educated on the liberal side are only liberals because they think they will be part of the ruling elite. They know darn well that liberalism does not work “for the masses”, but they think everyone else is too stupid to control their own lives.
Ann Coulter points out in “Slander” that the Democrats don’t argue using facts. They just call Republican’s stupid. This is an example of that. She also points out that conservative books are almost guaranteed best sellers while liberal books bomb . . . meaning . . . conservatives read and liberals don’t. But hey, what does she know? She’s just a stupid Republican. :P
The ‘A’ Students teach.
The ‘B’ students work for the ‘C’ students.
Where’s the intelligence reports on his eligibility???
Democrats and other unsavory types like them always do their surveys such that public school teachers get included in the ranks of the “educated”.
Voters with post graduate education are strong supporters of Obama? The more college education people have, the more liberal they tend to be.
Of course there are exceptions. But I bet almost everyone getting a graduate degree in Gay/Lesbian Studies, or Women’s Studies, or various other sociological fields, support Obama, because they are getting advanced degrees due to wanting to push a liberal social/political agenda. People in the hard sciences aren’t always so knee-jerk liberal.
But we can’t talk too much about the hard sciences, and reasons why relatively few women are in those fields. If you raise the questions, feminists will throw up and agitate so much, that a liberal president of Harvard can be fired for that academic inquiry.
It is the democrats that are poor and uneducated and who usually live in the projects.
In order to believe this lie you have to believe that all those democrats that live in the projects are closet geniuses while all those rich and successful people with college degrees are morons.
for example, didn’t Nancy Pelosi write a book a couple of years ago, which completely flopped? Liberal books just don’t seem to sell as well.
Maybe that indicates that conservatives are more likely to buy books than liberals?
This sentence is very telling. Are these categories negative statements or factual statements? The democrat Al Sharpton said that when America voted for Obama they voted for socialism. So did Sharpton become a republican, or is there such a thing as objective truth?
Now for the record, I don't believe every point listed...for example, I don't think Obama matches the Biblical description of the anti-Christ. But when one agrees with most or all of the 10 points of the communist manifesto what does that make that person? How close does this list sound to what the democrats are trying to install or have installed either in part or in whole?
10 point program of Communism
1.Abolition of property in land and of all rents of land to public purposes.
2.A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
3.Abolition of all right of inheritance.
4.Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
5.Centralisation of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.
6.Centralisation of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.
7.Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
8.Equal liability of all to labour. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
9.Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of the population over the country.
10.Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labour in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production.
Um...it wasn’t Republican voters who showed up at doctors offices the day after Obamacare passed wondering where their free healthcare was.
Voters with post grad degrees who support this twit like you say have degrees that do not require much thought or difficulty.
Exactly. It doesn’t indicate it. It proves it.
I don’t know the details of the curriculum, but, my impression is that Gay studies teaches how there has been oppression, Women’s studies teaches about oppression, Black Studies teaches oppression, etc.
So I can see that little real thought or academic inquiry happens in these fields. If the groups are said to be oppressed, and all their problems are due to oppression, then there’s not much else to say.
It’s laughable that some still talk about women as a minority group in higher education, when women now receive 57% of bachelor’s degrees.
If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it costs when it’s free.” — P.J. O’Rourke
And theres one reply at the bottom of the article by someone who says those who beleive in freedom need there ass kicked .....
“I dont know the details of the curriculum, but, my impression is that Gay studies teaches how there has been oppression, Womens studies teaches about oppression, Black Studies teaches oppression, etc”
Your statement only verifies my opinion. They are indoctrinated rather than think and examine all evidence and other points of view. No real critical thinking here.
Obama supported by those Mensa members in Detroit who crashed the building looking for that "Obama Stash".
Naturally. He's an extreme socialist.
A poll by market research company Harris Interactive shows that not only do two in five Americans believe Obama is a "socialist",
but one-third still believe he is Muslim.
A full 38 percent believe he is going to take away US citizens' right to hold arms;
29 percent that he wants to sell-out the US to a "one-world government";
27 percent that he resents the country's heritage;
and 23 percent that he is a racist and anti-American, alike.
Again, 23 percent of Americans believe he wants to use a terrorist attack or economic collapse to take "dictatorial powers";
one-fifth say he is doing "many of the things" that Adolf Hitler did;
and 14 percent believe he is none other than the Anti-Christ.
WWWWAAAYYYY too low.
Most of my college professors were liberals. They couldn’t find a job on the outside so they teach that Capitalism is a “mean” system.
Ummmm...the more people that hold these views,the less extreme they are.
Its not like they are denying the sun comes up in the east or some verifiable “fact” they are opinions and as such are NOT “extreme”. In another month the view that they are extreme will be extreme.
At the rally last September I met many, many very highly intelligent people (much more than me) who were spitting mad at what Mr. Obama was doing to our nation. Real estate people, CPAs, computer scientists, marketing executives, a nuclear engineer, and even a couple of media executives, are examples of the type of people I met from all over the country.
This stuff just doesn’t wash. Yeah, there are fringes on both sides, but my view is that the intelligence quotient is much, much higher on the conservative side. The leftists depend on their constituency to be uneducated or under-educated in order to control them.
Then they either call me a racist, or wander off with a dazed look.
Not uneducated, UNINDOCTRINATED with 0bamao's propaganda BS.
Educated people know he's a muzzie marxist/socialist POS.
“Then it’s usually, ummm, uh, no, I don’t know...”
So, they are just trying to sound as smart as TheOne!
All this proves, if it were true, is that the more a person is subjected to state-run education, the more indoctrinated they are.
Although maybe all those Democrats in the projects are like that Russian guy.
What in the hell is the definition of “uneducated”?
I have two degrees .... big deal ... I love what I do for a living. Now, put me in charge of installing a new roof on a house. I assure you that by the time I am done, it’d look like a Flintstone house or something. I’d get frustrated and just throw a big rock on the top of your house. Hell, I regularly question my survival skills if the shit hit the fan.
I knew this auto mechanic that, if you were to chat with him, sounded “stupid”. The guy would almost become a different person when you’d start discussing cars.
In many fights with liberals while drinking at a bar in a relatively liberal part of town, I have been called “stupid and uneducated” more times than I care to admit. Of course, I play into that role just to see how vicious these people get. While the bartender herself was a flaming lib, she’d get the biggest kick out of the act I would put on to expose how stupid and brainwashed these idiots were. The bartender was one of the few libs I know that you could actually have a conversation with.
I swear, *educated* to these people is nothing more than the ability to regurgitate talking points found on the DNC website or MSNBC.
One time I asked some political know-it-all to name his Representative in the US House. He couldn’t come up with a real name. I had to inform him it was Tim Murphy. He claimed I was a liar and that he had never heard of him. I was certain he wanted to fight but didn’t have the balls to take so much as a limp-wristed swing at me. It didn’t help that I was making an ass out of him in from of his girlfriend.
It’s amazing how *uneducated* the *educated* really are :-)! Seriously, it’s like you give someone some silly degree these days and they are an expert on everything.
uneducated ACORN workers?
When they call you a Racist, tell them they’re “useful idiots.”
“Extreme views” Dan?
Or an Extreme Pres__ent?
Ok, I can understand how uneducated people might believe some of the more outlandish stuff about Obama. But what is MUCH more surprising is how educated and “intelligent” liberals were able to believe much of the same things about Bush! Talk about willful ignorance, or delusional idiocy...
Did you ever hear that cut from some call in radio show where some lady was going on about getting money from Obama. Ah, found the link for it...
No he is riduculed and belittled by the "educated" who have nothing but scorn for those of us living between the coasts. The liberals want to divide us into groups the more esaier to control us.
A poll by market research company Harris Interactive shows that not only do two in five Americans believe Obama is a “socialist”, but one-third still believe he is Muslim.
Obama is and was a MARXIST in college.
Here is an interview from someone who knew him: send to everyone you know if you wish to spread the (blocked) word:
The full interview is devastating.
Too bad Fox News ignored Dr Drew in 2008 when he contacted them.
We now know the details of Barrys Occidental years.
He was an avowed and committed Marxist.
yup and the new one with the guy saying Obamacare is like Christmas.
Reflective of what? Longer, more-insulated, more intensive, and more dependent exposure to faculty Marxists?
About time sociologists and psychologists started looking into that one. Assuming that the correlation exists because "they're SMORT!" gets it all, is assuming too much.
Oh, well! Methodological disaster there .....
Come to think of it, that could be the case with Democrats ~ as high as it goes.
People really ARE uneducated if only 40% think Obama is a Socialist in mind and deed.
Here's his White House bookshelf as stocked by Michelle Obama:
Media Matter confirms it is a genuine photo. They just deny that books like "The American Socialist Movement" and "The Socialist Party of America" mean anything about Obama's agenda being Socialist (and if it IS what's wrong with that, the same argument used by Stalinists who denied that there was a Soviet loving fifth column in the US post-WWII).
Some of the Media Matters commentators think that this is library selection is for Obama to be able to fight AGAINST Socialist movements. Mmmm Kool Aid!
