Elitists of the Left Still Arrogant, Ignorant, and in Need of Watching
The American Thinker ^ | November 20, 2010 | Harold Witkov

If you had your butt kicked in an athletic contest -- or an election -- you would think it would warrant a long look in the mirror. You might start thinking about what you could have done differently during the past contest, and perhaps you would reflect about your strengths and weaknesses, and those of your opponent.

Back when I wrestled in high school, I had a teammate who was both outstanding on the mat and an exemplary student. I remember that on one rare occasion, he was soundly beaten. I will never forget his bruised-ego comment to me right after the match regarding his victorious opponent: "I bet I have a higher grade point average than him."

Similarly, I remember once attending a Northwestern football game back in college. Although I was not a student at Northwestern, I was interested in seeing a Big Ten football game, so I decided to sit on the Northwestern fan side of the field. As the lopsided contest drew to a close and the Northwestern Wildcats faced an embarrassing defeat, I will never forget the feeling of finding myself in a sea of Northwestern students standing, pointing their index fingers towards the fans on the other side of the field, and chanting, "You'll be working for us!"

How do elitists of the Left view themselves after being shellacked in the past election? Unfortunately, much as they did before the election. In three words: arrogant as ever.

Perhaps a more interesting question than "How do the elitists of the Left view themselves?" is "How do they view the Tea Party?" As we all know, they have been happy to paint Tea Partiers as a bunch of racists and crazies. That, in my opinion, is not their core belief, but rather their carefully laid out propaganda campaign for their base.

So how do they actually see Tea Partiers? To be sure, they see them as President Obama sees them (or anyone else who dares stand in the way of his agenda). They are "enemies." But the word enemy does not tell the entire story.

Arrogant confidence, maybe they know the end game and we’re still waiting to see which hand the coin is in. Look beind the curtian, many of yesterdays conspiracies are todays truths. Oh, and don’t forget the biggest smoke screen the media will be whoring next year will be the royal wedding. Keep your eye on this hand.
