They Think You’re Stupid

The far-left thinks you’re stupid. At least, they seem to believe this about those who might not be fully opposed to their agenda. Whether it’s a Democratic politician or a left-leaning media activist, these people will blatantly tell lies that are easily debunked with a straight face, fully expected to be believed.

It’s almost an everyday occurrence.

For example, we have Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), who recently insulted the intelligence of everyone watching the House Judiciary Committee Markup on Wednesday. While making her remarks, Lee thanked President Joe Biden for “securing” the border and criticized those who rightly pointed out how badly he is mismanaging the situation. She said:

The goodness that I want to express is thank goodness for the goodness of the Biden Administration combined with an effective law enforcement structure for securing our border. Thank goodness for the border patrol agents who have consistently worked, many of whom I have known for years and worked with as a resident of Houston and an active member of Judiciary and Homeland Security, having led border security committees, transportation security committees, been to the border any number of times

She then declared that “the border is both sovereign and secure.”

Naturally, Lee’s comments elicited an outpouring of condemnation on Twitter. Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) cut a video slamming the lawmaker for attempting to gaslight the nation into believing there is no migrant crisis at the southern border and criticizing Texas Republicans for trying to secure the border in the absence of help from the White House.

“I heard the gentle lady criticizing the state of Texas for daring to spend $3 billion to do what the federal government is refusing to do. Give me a break,” he fumed. “The state of Texas is the only thing standing between complete, absolute lawlessness and a wide-open border for our country.”

A simple Google search would reveal that the border is obviously not “secure.” The nation is in the middle of what could be the absolute worst migrant crisis in the nation’s history.

But they think you’re stupid.

CNN media activists Don Lemon and Chris “Fredo” Cuomo also attempted to gaslight their audience on Tuesday night when they tried to persuade their audience to believe they actually abide by journalistic ethics when they spew their left-wing propaganda under the guise of actual reporting.

In their handoff segment, the two anchors discussed social media and whether the government should regulate people’s online speech.

Lemon argued that “social media should be regulated” and that people “shouldn’t just be able to spread things about people that’s not true.”

He and Cuomo insisted that the people who have the most influential platforms are “righties” and that conservative media “have no real protocol” when it comes to the articles and posts they publish.

That’s when they went into their unintentional comedy routine. Cuomo said:

That’s because we have news accountability. That’s the “Fox farce.” Their whole nighttime lineup is entertainment.

Now, I could give a partial list of all the false and deceptive stories that CNN has peddled over the past five years. But that would take forever, and you clicked on this headline because you wanted to read an article, a novel the length of “The Count of Monte Cristo,” right?

But suffice it to say that media activists like Lemon and Cuomo lie to their viewers nightly. They claim to be objective journalists despite the fact that anyone with an IQ above room temperature can tell they are actually activist pundits, not real reporters.

But again, they think we’re stupid.

Last, but most certainly not least, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) repeated a lie first told by President Joe Biden in regards to his “Build Back Better” agenda, which carries a hefty price tag of about $3.5 trillion. Last Saturday, he posted a tweet claiming that his plan would add “zero dollars to the national debt.”

On Wednesday morning, the House speaker repeated the lie during a conversation with reporters. When asked about the president’s plan, she said:

It’s not about a dollar amount. The dollar amount, as the president has said, is zero. This bill will be paid for.

Of course, a modicum of common sense will tell you that there is absolutely no way on God’s green Earth that the president’s plan would be totally and completely paid for without adding a cent to the national debt. Many Republican lawmakers rightly pointed out that not only would it add to the debt, but it would also require significant tax increases.

Of course, Biden, Pelosi, and the rest of the gang know this.

But they think you’re stupid.

So how do they continue getting away with this absurdity? Who knows? There are likely a variety of reasons.

Also, it is possible that they won’t get away with it. These blatant lies could be one of several factors that contribute to the Democrats’ demise in 2022 and 2024. Anything is possible, right?
