Explaining Crony Government to the Low-Info Crowd
Liberals love their low information voters since they are easily manipulated with lies and feelings.
Check it out:
It seems more and more that our focus sadly is on the low-information crowd. And the problem with that is that most low-information people don’t know that they are low-information people. The ignorant, by definition, don’t know what they don’t know. Therefore, they don’t that they’re ignorant. So they never think you’re talking to them. And more and more that seems to be the target of what we have to do, because they’re the ones that they’re having the wool pulled over their eyes by slick packaging and marketing.
That’s really nothing new. It just seems to be more successfully exploited today than I remember it being. But I could be wrong about that. It could be common parlance. I always strive to make sure I don’t think something that is happening today is worse than ever. But man, I’ve never been, in my life, a country this precariously balanced. In my life the country has never been this threatened. The basics, the fundamentals, the foundation, has never been under assault like this. There’s always been leftists. There’s always been anti-American, blame America, first people. They’ve never been this numerous in leadership positions before. That’s different, too.
Ronaldus Magnus, ladies and gentlemen, 1975 interview on 60 Minutes. “It always has been. How do we call a liberal? You know, someone very profoundly once said many years ago that if fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism.”
And then Reagan said, “And what is fascism? Fascism is private ownership, private enterprise, but total government control and regulation. Well, isn’t this the liberal philosophy? The conservative, so-called, is the one that says less government, get off my back, get out of my pocket, and let me have more control of my own destiny.”
Reagan back in 1975. And I think most people today — you know who the low-information crowd today is? Well, among them is the New York Times readers. New York Times readers today are the essence of low-information voters. That Scott Walker story, classic example. The readers of the New Republic are low-information readers. They don’t know it. They think they know the gospel. They’re being lied to and they just eagerly swallow every syllable of it.
