First let’s look at the definition of the beast, “unlike a genuine academic, a pseudo-intellectual’s main reason for being interested in these topics is because it makes him feel intellectually superior to his peers. He usually despises main stream culture, accuses those who disagree with him as being ignorant, and when his ideas are challenged, he often retaliates with “That’s a straw man argument!”
All to common in today’s debate is the reaction from the liberal left and accusations that anyone who disagrees is an ignorant toothless, mindless, unlettered, witnessed moron! Today’s Moonbat, Hendrik Hertzberg in an article for The New Yorker titled “Lies” states “This sort of lunatic paranoia—touched with populism, nativism, racism, and anti-intellectualism—has long been a feature of the fringe, especially during times of economic bewilderment”.
Hertzberg goes on to say, “Their sneers may be false and hateful—they all routinely liken the President and the “Democrat Party” to murderous totalitarians—but they are employed by large, nominally respectable corporations and supported by national advertisers, lending them a considerable measure of institutional prestige”.
HMM, interesting Mr. Hertzberg, but are you not employed by the New Yorker magazine, and been recognized as one of the “25 Most Influential Liberals in the U.S. Media”? As is rote and appears to be a right of passage to hold the liberal moniker the cannons of journalism are thrown out the proverbial window when objectivity is called for! The consistent message, from the labeled “liberal media” has been to dismiss any form of discourse that disagrees with the staid and true left point of view, which is developed I hear on the Whine and Cheese circuit in the halls of the country clubs across America. Is is beyond perception that real people, the middle class, the workers of our society are capable of forming a congruent opinion? Could it also be that the founding members of the La De Da society now in power in the White House have also underestimated the voice of this classless group of “drones”, I think the answer to that question can be found on the streets of Washington D.C. on 9/12/09.
The people have spoken Mr. Hertzberg, might it be time to step down from that self imposed pedestal and take a look at the grassroots on which it stands, you never know, you might just be surprised at how cogent the movement and it members might be!
