Who Woulda Thunk Huh?
Nothing against illiterate morons but a recent Yale study won't surprise many but the left wing segment of our society, It has to do with science and the knowledge of such a complex subject that leaves the left wing scratching their pointed noggins. Most of my readers, excepting the brain dead ones, will already know the obvious. The left will have tremulous nightmares accepting the facts.
Now understand folks this information is being reported by Politico so it has to be true. Right? There's a Yale law school Professor named Dan Kahan. I hope he isn't trying to pass himself off as a genius because that obviously isn't the case. So what Dan did was develop this mumbo-jumbo theory about science and political views and decided to put it to the test. Then, despite himself, he decided to post it on his blog. You can find that at the link right below.
Who Woulda Thunk?
Learning, at least in the past, wasn't centered in liberalism as it is these days, not that it seems to matter because some people actually think for themselves. So Dan sampled more than 2K people (adults) and came to a remarkable conclusion, though not remarkable at all since logic enters into this equation. What did he find out with his fancy-schmancy analysis? People who were conservatives were more literate about scientific subjects than their lefty counterparts. Global warming come to mind here?
He then took it a step further and (GASP) found out that conservatives who aligned themselves with the Tea Party Movement were head and shoulders above the rest. Hell, if he'd asked me I could have told him that. What Kahan calls "meeting the threshold of statistical significance" I call the obvious.
Now I have to give Dan credit to even report the findings given his liberal bias and mentality. He did have to fess up that not only was he surprised by his findings but down right embarrassed. Cheer up Dan. Most conservatives can walk and talk academic circles around people who operate strictly from emotion and not facts.
A quote from the Professor:
“I’ve got to confess, though, I found this result surprising. As I pushed the button to run the analysis on my computer, I fully expected I’d be shown a modest negative correlation between identifying with the Tea Party and science comprehension.”
The problem is that Kahan was pigeon holing people which I see quite often here and in society. He says he doesn't "know a single person" so he must be living in a bubble. Doesn't watch Fox News very often? Maybe MSNBC and CNN? He reads the NY Times everday and the Huffington Post and others on line? Jeez. If he read and watched credible sources he might even qualify as a Professor and not a left wing propagandizer to our youth.
His words, not mine:
“But then again, I don’t know a single person who identifies with the Tea Party. All my impressions come from watching cable tv — & I don’t watch Fox News very often — and reading the ‘paper’ (New York Times daily, plus a variety of politics-focused internet sites like Huffington Post & Politico). I’m a little embarrassed, but mainly I’m just glad that I no longer hold this particular mistaken view.”
Yes Professor Kahan you were mistaken and I have to credit you for admitting what most on the left fail to admit. You have been fooled. It's time that more people wake up Dan before this nation goes down in flames.
