Random Thoughts of the Day
During a Christmas reunion, I visited one of my relatives who has a Ph.D.; she very much fits the stereotype of the elitist, know-it-all, condescending liberal. I’ve dealt with these type of people more times than I can count, so I didn’t bring up politics. When overeducated people are as far-left as she is, it’s a waste of time to try to win her to your way of thinking. She, of course, couldn’t help herself though as she had to bask in the celebration of Trump losing. Here’s an experiment for you — find ANY hard-core liberal and ask them why Trump has such intense support, including over 74 million votes. I guarantee you will hear one of the following words used to describe Trump supporters — racist, xenophobic, stupid, uneducated, or brainwashed. I have not heard ONE SINGLE liberal acknowledge that maybe, just maybe, people have different values or support different solutions to the issues. Even in a voting block as large as 74 million, liberals can’t help but put simplistic labels on groups of people. Hmmm….don’t these high-and-mighty liberals pride themselves on standing against labels, discrimination, and stereotypes of groups of people?
Anyway, this relative couldn’t use the stupid and uneducated label with me since I have the same amount of education as her, so she turned to old reliable — Trump supporters are brainwashed. Let’s examine this theory. For the last 4+ years, we’ve been subjected to non-stop, 10-story-per-day anti-Trump attacks by almost all of the mainstream media, Hollywood, social media, comedy shows, tech news aggregators, corporate advertising, sports, protests, campaign ads, classrooms, and on and on. The anti-Trump barrage has been impossible to get away from. Even if you turned off all typical sources of news, you still got it thrown in your face through the usual escapes — social media, sports, and entertainment. Now let’s look at the pro-Trump side. If you didn’t tune into a small sliver of media such as Fox News primetime, talk radio, or a few other scattered sources, you simple didn’t get the pro-Trump voice. Indeed, when I brought up some things like the Mideast peace deal, record low pre-Covid unemployment rates, the Hunter Biden scandal, evidence of election fraud, etc., this overeducated Ph.D. liberal relative of mine didn’t have the first clue what I was talking about. She truly has been living in a sheltered, carefully crafted world brought to you by information control of the Deep State Ruling Class.
So I bring you back to the argument of brainwashing. Which side is simply spewing what they’ve been inundated with 24/7 for the past four years, and which side has used their independent critical thinking skills to form thoughts counter to the prevailing wisdom of all major institutions of influence in this country? Which side is more likely to get the pros and cons of major issues? Which side is more likely to be attacked for expressing their views? Trump supporters are the very definition of ANTI-brainwashing. They’ve had the strength, courage, and free-thinking ability to stand up to EVERYTHING thrown at them the past 4 years by the most powerful people in the world!
