It’s not that liberals don’t know anything. It’s that so much of what they know isn’t so.
I did my bit today. I sat with the OR resident leftists- a couple of hearts on their sleeves white folks who keep telling me how horrible Republicans are and why I should agree with them that religious people are the source of every problem in the world, and that American police love to kill black people.
Well, this black man let them have it. I walked them through the history of the Republican party, the speeches and writings of Frederick Douglas…and I was just getting started. I told them who founded the KKK, and which states in the South were for segregation and which party their governments belonged to. I kept going, indices of economy, family stability, education of black people in America and how that has declined since welfare. Some idiot in the corner piped up about how blacks in WW2 were not educated and welfare and the 60’s had changed all that. Well, I happen to have a picture of a Tuskegee P51 Mustang as my laptop wallpaper…
They probably had no clue that the Tuskegee Airmen even existed, much less what a P-51 is.
On a side note, I’m still trying to fight off the worst summer cold in history, so posting will continue to be, shall we say, spotty and inconsistent. In fact, I might lapse into downright incoherence if I finally get desperate enough to take a Benadryl for it. That stuff works great and all, but it does tend to knock me for a loop, I do admit it.
