Alan Dershowitz - conservatives may not be dumb

"And you know, liberals make the terrible mistake, including some of my friends and colleagues, of thinking that all conservatives are dumb," Alan Dershowitz, in an interview with the Philadelphia Enquirer.

Sigh.

There it is.  Liberals dismiss, disregard, and trample all over the rights of conservatives for one reason - they really think that we are dumb.

Remember Obama's comments about how we all cling to our guns and religion?  Let me refresh your memory, "So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."


I grew up in a college town, I can totally understand this sentiment.  Elite liberals who have spent their entire lives and careers in ivory towers look down on the rest of us with nothing sort of sneering disgust.

Elite liberals who have never had to make anything, produce something new, or balance a cash register at the end of the night at The Gap, laugh at those of us who work and pay taxes.

Did you get that subtle jab from the president in there?  For some reason liberals think that we are against immigration.  Of course, that is ludicrous, we are a nation of immigrants.  Conservatives are against ILLEGAL immigration and the idiotic notion people who are here illegally should receive benefits and the right to vote.  Oh, and drivers licenses.

Why would a liberal professor call a pro-life teenager a "domestic terrorist?"

They think that we are dumb.

Why do liberals try to silence any speech that doesn't fit exactly in line with their narrow worldview?

They think that we are dumb.

Why would the president spend money to close down open air monuments during the partial Obama-Reid government shutdown?

They think that we are dumb.

Why does the ACLU sue school children for saying the word "Christmas?"

They think that we are dumb.

I could go on and on.  Well, I have, in the last 275 or so posts.

The reason that our government is out of control and taking over every aspect of our lives is simple - liberals think that you and I are dumb.  We can't take care of ourselves, so the government is going to do it for us.

Thanks, Alan.
