The tendency is to label ones political opponents as stupid/moronic/sub-three digit I.Q. – pick your pejorative. It is an easy rejoinder for someone proposing daft ideas – ideas that will surely collapse our way of life and the prosperity that brought it about.
But, and it is a very big but, while that low I.Q. designation is generally correct, there are exceptions. It is not possible to deny the fact that there are some high I.Q. people pushing, what seems to normal people, batty ideas.
Because while normal people of sufficient intelligence can easily see the flaw in their socialist plans – how it will destroy society – we fail to realise that this is their aim. Good people struggle to understand evil people.
They are using their ‘useful idiots’ (A.O.C. is the poster child – basically decent but dim-witted) to purposely destroy society. And they are going about it intelligently.
Unless good people respond intelligently, not just by hurling pejoratives, then they will win.
The answer to ‘why are the Left so stupid?’ is because some of them are not. They mean it.
