The Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations
Liberals hold their minions to the ground.
Check it out:
I happen to know that in the case of Obama, they don’t look at Obama with sympathy. They look at Obama with reverence. Obama is them! Ivy League, Harvard Law Review, speaks like they do. There’s a reverence for Obama. Now, I know what you are trying to get at. You are essentially talking about — there’s a phrase for this — the soft bigotry of low expectations. You’re talking about how liberals look at certain people and think they don’t have chance, for whatever reason. They’re minorities, skin color, they just don’t have a chance. Liberals don’t have faith in ’em. Liberals need to help them. And then, when liberals help them, that means liberals are good people.
You’re talking about something that’s very real: the soft bigotry of low expectations. And you’re right, it’s everywhere. I see examples of it multiple times a day, in sports reporting, in news reporting, I see it constantly. It’s part and parcel of elitist liberals, for whatever reason, thinking certain people just don’t have it. But it’s not their fault that they don’t have it. They’ve been discriminated against, or they are the recipients of some kind of bias. But whatever, liberals essentially have a contempt for most average people. And this contempt is the source of much of their arrogance. They think they’re better. But, see, they have compassion. They’re better and they’re superior, but they’re trying to help these people. Affirmative action is racial profiling at its worst.
