Liberal Know-Nothings

Gary Bauer, Campaign for Working Families, notes the hate-mongering of intolerant liberal fascists.

"Last Friday, I wrote about the reaction of the liberal media, political and Hollywood elites to the Tea Parties. Leftwing politicians denounced them as “shameful,” “despicable,” and “Astroturf.” Actress Janeane Garofalo told MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann that the protestors were just ignorant bigots. “They have no idea what the Boston Tea party was about,” she said. “They don’t know their history at all. It’s about hating a black man in the White House. …This is racism straight up…”

Amazing. The Left will tolerate naked men marching in homosexual “pride” parades and illegal aliens publicly mocking our immigration laws with mass protests in the streets. Heck, they’ll even bend over backwards to make sure the terrorist thugs in GITMO are afforded top-notch lawyers and all the rights and benefits of the very nation those thugs are trying to destroy.

But the Left has no tolerance whatsoever for men and women who don’t want a massive government debt to destroy their retirement and their children’s future standard of living. By the way, the Tea Party movement isn’t over. Our friends at the American Family Association are sponsoring more than 450 Tea Parties on July 4th. (Click here to learn more.)

I know this will come as a total shock to Ms. Garofalo and Mr. Olbermann, but conservatives are not a bunch of know-nothing racists. They do know what they are talking about. In fact, they know more than liberals! The latest Pew Research Center News IQ survey polled 1,000 adults nationwide on 12 issues that made headlines recently. Seven questions were related to economic news, and five questions were about politics or foreign policy. After analyzing the results, Pew reported, “Republicans received higher average scores on the quiz than both Democrats and independents.”

Abraham Lincoln once said, “It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.” I hope Ms. Garofalo will consider following that advice the next time she is interviewed."
