The arrogance of some liberal Americans knows no bounds. What do they say? Always read the fine print. This morning while sitting idly reading the Stars and Stripes and sipping on a hot “cup’o’Joe”, I had to learn from Sara Burnett of the Associated Press/National Newswatch that unless we are diverse we are probably not educated. Well not in those very words but you get the gist. In my opinion, an unrelated story Ms. Burnett managed to insert her own far left spin on why Kent County, once a strong Republican stronghold might turn Democrat. Her conclusion: Grand Rapids and its suburbs have new universities and a medical sector, which makes them more diverse, and obviously more educated than the rest of hick America. Which would explain why they would turn Democrat. What a load of crock!
Ode to diversity and intellectualism. How we love to weave in and out of diverse racial harmony to arrive at the equitable conclusion of intellectual bliss. Ah yes, the liberal elitist self proclaimed educated and diverse intellectuals wearing colorful varsity sweaters while bussing tables at Starbucks. The ones demanding I pay their university fees. If education and diversity is the key to intelligence and education, what happened to that idiot from Queens New York? You know, the one who chased Amazon from her district and 25,000 diverse jobs with it? Most six figure jobs would have gone to African Americans and Hispanics.
Since Ms. Burnett decided to open that dubious link between diversity and education; I wonder how she would explain the increase in homelessness and disarray in cities like Los Angeles, Baltimore, Detroit, and Chicago? Chicago is a war zone every weekend. Aren’t these cities diverse or educated enough? They are all Democrat after all.
This repulsive bigotry against blue collar America started in earnest during the 2016 election by no other than Ms. Hillary Clinton. Remember “deplorable”? The bleeding liberal heart seems to stop beating when it comes to traditional Americans who work and asking for no handouts. I hate to break the bad news to the diverse educated pinheads, but we need more plumbers, mechanics, house builders, roofers, farmers, and manual laborers to get this country back on its feet. What we do not need more of is 30 something “educated” unproductive entitled adults living in their parents’ basements. Maybe, just maybe, if we encouraged more youth to go into good paying profitable trades, we would have more employed diverse educated individuals than diverse educated graduates looking for work.
I am infuriated at the condescending of traditional Americans by those who profess to love America but obviously hate most Americans. The intellectuals who spout out crap and live in a dazed world of their own. They think they have a monopoly on “diversity” and wear that mantra like a badge of honor; a comforting assurance toward political sainthood, while passing bigoted judgment on the rest of us. They are the champions of righteousness by virtue of partisanship.
The correlation between diversity and education has never really been explained to me. By virtue of that logic, if one happens to live in a one specific ethnic neighborhood regardless of race, Ms. Burnett would take issue and she would conclude that the neighborhood was not diverse or educated. But that logic is often dismissed because it does not play well in the world of the loony left; and we have become too lazy a society to even challenge it. We allow CNN, MSNBC, NBC, and even FOX news to tell us the “truth”. And we all know how that works out, don’t we?
I get pissed with disingenuous reporting. Ms. Burnett’s article should have concentrated on Rep. Justin Amash who left the Republican party and has not made up his mind who he will align with. He does not like President Trump and wants to impeach him. The story was reasonably on point until she threw in her spin on Kent County and Grand Rapids. She had to insert bias bloviating before continuing with the report. It is true that the district might turn Democrat but not because it is more educated or diverse, it is because Amash has still not made up his mind where he would like to drop his hat; which leaves the door wide open to the Democrats who are running in that district. It also depends on fund raising. Even Brian Stryker, Democratic pollster admitted that the area is up for grabs. But the Sara Burnetts of the mainstream media had to make it racial and personal. And mainstream media wonders why the majority of Americans think they are disingenuous twits.
The continual ignorant and arrogant perception that colleges and universities turn a high school kid into an overnight success has been debunked a long time ago. Mostly because the past ten years saw more unemployed “educated” geniuses moving back in ma and pa’s basements and attics than employed graduates. Elitist idiots still ignore the fact that the most lucrative and successful debt free individuals in the country are currently the manual laborers. The kids who are going back to trade schools and “making something” of themselves. Who are getting jobs that pay good money, pay bills, and buy their own property. Plumbers are a commodity and are laughing all the way to the bank. Have you taken your car to a mechanic lately? Every oil stain and spark plug is a dollar in his account. Chink chink. Try and get a roofer to do your roof, you might as well sell your first born. Get the gist. Getting certification from a vocation school to do hair and nails makes more financial sense than a PHD in Russian mythology. Can’t make this up. Been across the desk from these prodigies. Seen useless”degrees” on resumes and applicants attempting to get a job as a bank teller. Most could not count a strap of twenties, but hey they could have bought a house with the money they owe on a useless degree hanging on their intellectual shingle. A new generation of educated morons.
Why did a small paragraph in a two bit Associate Press article by a “reporter” I had not heard of until this morning, piss me off so much? Because I so genuinely sick and tired of political innuendo and intolerance of traditional Americans. America is about the dream that can happen. It is not about money or intellect, but about the pursuit of happiness. Happiness is the ability to support your family without a handout from the government.
Success has never been measured by an overpriced “education” but by creativity, ingenuity, and the strength to work hard and “make it happen”. Bill Gates never went to college. Success is measured by personal satisfaction and responsibility to self, family, and country. Young adults should be taught how to be self sufficient and grateful for their opportunities and not strangle them by false hopes that put them on the unemployment line. There is a difference between education, common sense, and intelligence. One can be lucky to have all three. But we are currently raising a generation of indebted “educated” young adults sans common sense and questionable intelligence.
This is America. It was born out of diversity. Diversity has no boundaries, colors, accents, or races. Diversity is all of us. Be diverse, be educated, but most of all be proud to be an American regardless of whether you are an investment banker, roofer, Democrat, or Republican. If they can take care of themselves, their families, and their communities, then they are past being “educated” because they are intelligent. So, Ms. Burnett: being a Democrat and diverse does not qualify you as “educated”. I suggest you take time to better “educate” yourself in diversity before inserting inane opinions in your article. And by the way: Amash is also thinking of running as a Libertarian. By the time he makes his mind up the election will be over and at the rate he is going, he might announce that he is Amish.
