Cops Who Booed Hillary Are Uneducated Who Hate The Smart (My title)
World New York ^ | Tuesday, October 23, 2001

Posted on 10/23/2001 4:40:35 PM PDT by occam's chainsaw

Tidbits

• Drudge reports Senator Clinton was booed at the 'Heroes for New York' concert. Our response: "Heroes" did not boo Senator Clinton. This may sound like sacrilege, but most of the cops and firemen in this town are not heroes. They are working stiffs looking for a secure job from which they can retire in 20 years.

The "heroes" mumbo-jumbo should have stopped before now, but lionizing such people seems to have gone beyond the super men who raced up the stairs in those buildings as everyone else ran down. The lauding has gone so far that it now encompasses the schmucks, turds and rejects who clutter up what are otherwise decent professions, until those who are undeserving start to believe they are somehow worthy of the glory, the praise, the attention. (It's also gone so far that a disproportionate amount of the money raised is earmarked for the families of the few hundred emergency personnel, to the disregard of the thousands of other victims and their families.)

Why would these people "boo" Senator Clinton? Not all did, by any report, but those who did are probably a part of the large number of the cops and firemen in this town are politically conservative, from undiverse neighborhoods, not educated much above high school, and as small-town as you can get and still be from New York City. They are, then, the very types who resent efforts made by forward-thinking, worldly politicians, which how Senator Clinton could be described.

People distrust her, and her husband; or rather, the Clintons tend to bring out anti-intellectualism. It's an ugly American past-time, hating the smart. It's everywhere, pervasive in all media, in the schools, in the workplaces, in the newspapers. The Clintons are big, fat targets, too good to resist by people who feel their anti-intellectual tendencies are supported and approved of by others. They feel authorized to criticize the wonks, the policy geeks, the professional bookworms. Unless you sound unassumingly dull, or like country hick, Americans tend to dislike you. If you know what you're talking about, and you're confident, people think you're lying. Hell, even if you're slightly above average—just smarter than 51 percent of the population—that 51 percent tends to distrust you. In much the same way, it's always the idiots and morons who are the biggest conspiracy freaks: they're so dumb they think smart people are just making everything up, too, and so they'll pay heed to the first intelligible lie that comes along.

Is there anyone else who is tired of every other article on this board being about Hillary and/or Bill Clinton? Honestly, there is more coverage of those two here than anywhere else on the internet, I think.

Which candidate did most of the police and firefighters unions endorse last year -- Clinton or Lazio, Bush or Gore?

Yes, they are.

Where is the BARF alert? Good God, I thought I had seen everything. The Clintons and their cohorts are stupid enough to attack the fireman and police at this time.

I thought they didn't approve of "hate speech". This is one long diatribe of hate. Badly worded, peurile and gaseous, but hateful for sure.

How about the two parasites with the last name of Clinton who have supped at the public trough all of their adult lives? Are those two possibly "rejects who clutter up what are otherwise decent professions?"

Lest America ever forget why The Nameless One, W(B)-97, and all their enablers should be hectored, hounded, and harried into silence, until "clintonese is only spoken in Hell," look here:

Pretty stupid article to be writing while we're in the middle of the first war on our homeland. If this idiot thinks the WTC is the only terrorist activity they're going to see, they're very much mistaken. The vast majority of people are smart enough to understand that, and are smart enough to know that their very life depends on these "Uneducated Turds Who Hate The Smart".

I guess being smart depends.........

No comment made about Americans who are smarter than
the Arkansas hillbillies who hate them.

1. I dare this guy to read his column out loud from the 80th floor of a burning building.

2. I dare this guy to read his column out loud from the 80th floor of a burning building from which he expects to be rescued by Hilary Clinton.

3. I dare this guy to read his column out loud as he sails 80 storeys through the air to escape the burning building he just jumped out of.

4. I'll forgive him if he lands on The Pantsuit.

The author of this birdcage liener is complaining about anti-intellectualism, and spells " PASSTIME " , as " past-time ", and asserts that he / she is more educated than the HEROS with a high school diploma ? ROTFLOL

I've Master's degree, and I'd boooooooo both Clintons , given the chance.

the very types who resent efforts made by forward-thinking, worldly politicians, which how Senator Clinton could be described****

That, plus the before line - "mostly uneducated, undiverse, yada, yada, yada"

Can one sense the pious mock empathy of the writer? Reaching out to the unwashed masses. Of course they would boo Hillary the Queen because they are so ignorant, steeped in their own biases. They just don't know any better, the poor dears.

Of course, underlaying this false empathy is the vicious hatred harbored by the writer. He tries to use cynicism, sarcasm and labors hard to appear wry. Instead, he is a vicious fascist underneath who truly despises the working class that he is supposed to champion.

Notice how he says, "the forward thinkers", because, to him, all communists/socialists are "forward thinkers". This, of course, is why they define themselves as "progressives".

Yet, they truly aren't. Since they deem themselves so much smarter and worldlier than the rest of us, and since they deem us incapable of living our own lives productively, we should just give up and let the more intelligent, the more progressive rule.

It's fascism, covered up.

I wasn't trying to be funny or entertaining, I was trying to summarize the article and paraphrase what the writer was too chickensh*t to come out and say directly. When I see something this outrageous, I bring it to the attention of others - not to amuse them, but to let them know what kind of bile is being written out there.

I apologize to all of you for not flagging it with a "barf Alert". If you are looking for something funny or entertaining, try the Political Cartoons/Humor threads.

Well that's strange most of the studies show that conservatives are more educated and wealthier than liberals. That's of course excluding the liberal academia, who would be more educated but unable to acquire wealth.

The author has got to be one of the biggest conspiracy freaks I've read in a long time. Is he talking about the majority of the people who believed The Toon's and Hitlery's lies that came along daily for eight years?

"The Clinton's are BIG, FAT, targets"

and their constant posturing in front of any and all available cameras only reinforces that impression! For those of us outside New York, can any current resident give us a comparison of the appearance counts of Hillary and Chuck (Schumer)? From out here in the hinterlands / flyover country, she has had more appearances by far and that is my basis for considering her to be a camera hog.

As an idiot, I could look down on and boo Hitlery because even I know she's a marxist moron.

I just checked out the web site Democratic Underground for the first time and what really jumped out at me from all the many ridiculous, repulsive postings on that site was the ever-present emphasis on how smart the Democrats/liberals are and how dumb the Republicans/conservatives are. Is that all they have to cling to? Do the liberals actually believe they have a monopoly on higher education in America? That only those with higher education can understand and appreciate the brilliance and moral superiority of a Hillary Clinton? The liberals at Democratic Underground are the most classist, elitist, snobby group of people I have ever read. Their hate mail bag is designed to ridicule conservative posters as dumb. We ridicule liberals as amoral and wrong in their principles, we don't waste our time evaluating their education level. To disparage firemen and cops because they historically do not have the same education levels as other professions is beyond disgusting. I have an Ivy-League degree, but that doesn't make me any better than anyone else - try telling that to a liberal!

It's a good thing that you're a newbie, then. Go read the archieves ; about 96 % are of all of us railing against the Clintons. You wouldn't have been able to last a week, here, back then. Do read the China Connection , Alamo Girl's stuff, and the Tainted Blood dosiers. Then, you too can join in the outrage, dear. Ignorance is NOT bliss. Educate yourself.

If anti-Clinton threads so upsets you; do NOT read the threads about the Clintons. Now, isn't that easy ?

It's worse than that.

"My side is superior, your side is inferior"....very dangerous.

I'm sure they'd like nothing more than to see us all be marched off to a "holding facility" for "inferior people".
