In which our host knocks down some of the myths surrounding Republicans and presents instead the Revolting Truth that they are smarter, kinder, more compassionate and more liberal than their Democrat counterparts.
Im Andrew Klavan and this is the Revolting Truth
Everything you know about Republicans is wrong. Thats not because youre stupid. Well, some of you are stupid. That guy over there looks like an idiot. But for the rest of you, its because the flow of important information in America has been largely monopolized by Democrats and Democrats lie. Because theyre Democrats.
Reliable studies show that somewhere between 72 and eleventy gazillion percent of American college professors are Democrats, so the information you get at school is skewed. Only about 28% of American journalists say theyre Democrats but thats because theyre Democrats and Democrats lie. In fact, about 88 percent of campaign contributions from American journalists go to the Democrats, so the information you get from the news media is skewed. And of course, there arent enough Republicans in Hollywood to field a softball team so the information you get from the entertainment media is also skewed Democrat. Only a person who is dedicated to seeking out and finding reliable independent information can break through the cloud of leftist propaganda and get at the Revolting Truth... Here it is:
One - Republicans are smarter than Democrats. Oh yes, they are. A recent study out of Oxford shows that Strong Republicans have almost a five and a half point IQ advantage over strong Democrats, and even moderate Republicans have nearly 3 and a half points more IQ than their moderate Democrat counterparts. A researcher at Yale recently startled himself by discovering Tea Partiers know more about science than the general public, and the New York Times, a former

What is called “Liberal” today is the furthest thing from Classic Liberalism. The Communists hijacked the term.
Sadly, I.Q. has almost nothing to do with common sense, or honor for that matter. Some of the dumbest SOBs I ever met held ivy league degrees.
Communists like the term “progressive”, like the leftists who have now dropped the name global warming for “climate change”
True. I’m glad that liberals have decided to take on the “Progressive” label. After a few years they’ll ruin that label too, but maybe by then we will have taken back the word “liberal” and restored it to its proper place.
My first response was "WTF?" but the article makes it clear that the author means the classical liberal ideal of freedom rather than the Rooseveltian warping of the term to mean socialist and authoritarian, but not quite as much as Hitler and Stalin... yet.
Didn't that Yeal research include questions that pitted conservatives against their religious beliefs? We would have scored higher without that liberal 'trick'...
Conversely, ivy league degrees have even less to do with I.Q -- or common sense measured by any metric. (Famous words regarding an unfolding fiasco: "How could the SOB possibly be that stupid? After all, he went to Harvard!")
Most of the dumb SOB pricks I was referring to were Harvard grads(several from my high school). It was fun watching these mopes screaming bloody murder over Obamacare. Hoist, meet petard : )
This article would actually be useful if he had links to the studies and articles to prove his assertions. As it is, it’s pretty useless. Yawn.
