Conservatives are batshit crazy. Anyone who watches Fox News religiously and falls for everything those ignorant talking heads spout has got to have more than a screw loose. I never watch the news but I do keep up with local & world events, mainly via Internet, and I always get my information from more than one source – this does not usually include Fox anything. Just the sad reality that these idiots nominated no-nothing Donald Trump and then actually voted the billionaire bully into the White House speaks volumes about the low intelligence of the average Rightist. Just because there are some Republicans that hold degrees means little, as education doesn’t equal intelligence.
Back when Trump was running for office, a Public Policy Polling found that “66% of [Donald] Trump’s supporters believe that Obama is a Muslim… 61% think Obama was not born in the United States.” The same poll found that 54 percent of all Republicans believed the President to be a Muslim. (In September, Donald Trump suggested Obama is a Muslim.)
Those holding strict conservative views tend to be ultra religious; therefore, they believe that the world was created in 7 days, believe in Adam, Eve, and Man’s downfall in the Garden of Eden, that Noah filled his ark with animals before the Great Flood, Jonah was in the belly of a whale, in men fighting giants, and all sorts of fairy tale nonsense despite science, evolution, and the fact that there is is no proof a worldwide flood ever occurred. Here’s what I discovered in the Comments section of a website addressing the question of why poor Whites vote Republican: If you find someone who is a Christian and who takes their news from FOX, please ask them if they have ever heard of the book of Revelation? I imagine they have. Ask them if they have heard of the “Mark of the Beast”? Again, I expect it is “yes”. Then ask them what letters have the value of “6” in our alphabet and our number system? The simple, correct answer is “F”, “O”, “X” Now, ask them why they follow the Anti-Christ?
It’s no wonder such ignorant anti-intellectuals supported Trump. He has the vocabulary of a middle school student, the typical ‘bad boy wanna be’ who uses words like ‘pussy’ and makes fun of people who are physically challenged – just as a child would. He throws temper tantrums like a toddler and can’t spell to save his life. He’s a misogynist, a racist, and an all around bigot, which is most of the Republican party (the male members, anyway). I cannot understand the mentality of his supporters at all, particularly the women. They must really have a lot of self-hate to have voted for such an asshole.
Conservatives firmly believe in the 2nd Amendment: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. They are ethnocentric. Glenn Beck has been called a leader of the ultraconservative opposition to President Obama, and a voice of the far-right Tea Party movement. During the depth of the Great Recession, in 2009, Beck was quickly rising to a position of national prominence, despite—and because of—his extremely controversial statements. In July 2009, for example, Beck declared: “Everything that is getting pushed through Congress” is “driven by President Obama’s thinking on . . . reparations [for slavery],” and is conceived of as a way to “settle old racial scores.” Beck also asserted that a “deep-seated hatred for white people” drives President Obama.
Paul Sniderman is a world expert on the political psychology of race. He once asked 659 non-black individuals how many negative stereotypes of black people they would accept. Self-placed political conservatism predicted the acceptance of the negative stereotypes more than three and a half times better than family income did. In another survey, Sniderman asked his respondents whether or not they supported government guarantees of equal opportunity for blacks. Their answers are quite revealing: 75 percent of college-educated liberals supported this legislation favoring African-Americans, compared with only 38 percent of college-educated conservatives. With such a pronounced partisan contrast on race attitudes, it’s no wonder that the 113th US Congress (2013–2015) has forty black Democrats and only one black Republican.
Conservative ranters like Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, and Sean Hannity vomit bigoted diatribes on a daily basis. People such as they are so obviously low in self esteem that it’s almost pitiful – yet I do not pity them one iota. If you love yourself, believe in your own worth as a person, and have some intelligence to boot, you would not feel the urge to put down others continually. It’s as if that is the only way these political pundits can feel good about themselves. I guess it helps them to sleep at night when they believe they’ve put the stupid liberals – libtards – in their place. With their ‘looks’, it is no wonder they love to belittle others. If I had a long face like Ann’s, I’d be a miserable cunt who hates on others for money too. Same with Rush, Sean, Glenn, and all the rest of that pathetic bunch.
