Good news: Poll shows most Americans aren’t ignorant zombies

I saw this photo yesterday on Jawa Report. Nice, isn’t it? It makes you wonder what in the world Sarah Palin did to warrant such hysterical slander.

Well, I’ll tell you. She has the gall to be a smart, successful woman with a brood of five, an unabashed faith, and a handicapped child who survived the womb in this terrible age of amniocentesis and judicial activism — because his mother defied her feminist peers and stubbornly pushed the vacuum aspirator and suction curette away from his tiny helpless body.

So, naturally, Palin is a fascist. She is a fascist, extremist, dangerous, scary, boogie-monster. So is Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, and any other like-minded conservative.

It’s amazing that liberals have the unmitigated gall to call conservatives extremists. Next thing you know they’ll be calling them pony-tailed, granola-eating, Birkenstock-wearing, gaseous, sanctimonious bores. Because this is about the most outrageous case of the pot calling the kettle black I’ve ever seen. And they often get away with it, too – although not quite as often as they thought, according to a recent Rasmussen poll.

As Ed Morrissey at Hot Air explains, the survey shows more people believe liberals are extreme than conservatives:

Democrats’ attempts to use scare tactics look equally effective, especially in the internals.  Majorities of every age demographic peg the Democrat agenda as “extreme” except 18-29YOs, which narrowly give a plurality to “mainstream” (45/40).  Interestingly, no age demo has a plurality or majority saying the GOP is extreme, although two age demos tie: 18-29 (36/36) and 50-64 (46/46).  Independents consider the Republican agenda mainstream, although not by a wide amount (47/38), which means that the GOP has some work to do.   However, indies think Democrats are extreme by more than a 4-1 margin, 17/73, a stunning amount that almost matches what Republican voters think of Democrats (11/80).

For that matter, 22% of Democrats think Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have an extreme agenda.  Only 17% of Republicans think that about their own party.

This helps some, but I’m troubled that it’s even that close. That those hypocrites aren’t laughed off their soap-boxes every time they imply that leftist ideology formed this country and that conservatives are the new kids on the block, trying to destroy everything with their radical ideas.

In other words, in liberal la-la land, Christianity was always banished from the public square, college faculties were always packed with communists, and school children have always learned how to place a condom on a banana instead of how to place the Civil War in the correct century. 

I would literally scratch my head during Obama’s campaign speeches when he would outline his socialist vision for America with glowing, inspiring prose and then frame its implementation as “taking back America,” and “returning to our best traditions.”

For liberals to postulate that conservative values like family, faith, self reliance, and national defense are dangerous and extreme, they must be banking on pervasive ignorance which makes the average American an easy mark for their propaganda, as if they are just clueless mice on an ornate Persian rug, tragically devoid of perspective and with no concept of the rich tapestry of traditions that have always distinguished us before the nations.  

They believe that if they repeat their lies loud enough and with sufficient volume to drown out all logic, those untutored masses will come to believe their false definition of America.

Could be. And if they combine their incessant yammering with a twirly, shiny object, they may even convince those brainwashed zombies to run amuck the next time there is an extreme snow-storm in January.
