IF YOU’RE VOTING FOR HILLARY, I CAN TELL YOU THESE 7 THINGS ABOUT YOU.
For your enjoyment, here are the seven things I (probably) know about you based on your support for Hillary Clinton:
- You don’t understand basic economics.
This one is perhaps the biggest giveaway, and I would venture to say a vast majority of Hillary’s supporters don’t have even a rudimentary knowledge of economics. For example, a higher minimum wage hurts the poor and raises unemployment, and higher taxes on corporations and on the rich (or anyone) hurts the economy and hurts the poor the most. Additionally, regulations stifle economic growth, and our debt is reaching unsustainable levels. We are also already in a depression which is being masked by low interest rates. We are one bad bank decision away from a global Great Depression that everyone will suffer from. Your excuse is to simply say “trickle-down economics doesn’t work,” but the sad truth is, you have no idea what you’re talking about. If you don’t believe me, you’re probably a Hillary supporter, and you need to look these things up (try Google, or any basic book on economics that wasn’t written by Karl Marx) — I won’t do your homework for you. If Hillary’s supporters knew anything about basic economics, they wouldn’t be Hillary supporters — period.
2. You are an insider, a statist, a corporatist, a fascist, a socialist, or a communist.
At least to some degree, you have to be one of the above to support Hillary Clinton. It’s highly unlikely you could be anything else. Considering Hillary herself fits the bill on most of these titles, I would say it’s hard to imagine someone supporting her who doesn’t as well. Even her rival in the primary was a self-proclaimed, devout socialist.
3. You have trouble seeing the forest for the trees.
You see the words “higher minimum wage,” and you get excited without doing the research into the ramifications. Same goes for “free universal healthcare,” “free tuition,” and “higher taxes on the rich and big business.” You are unable to objectively analyze consequences of actions, and instead prefer to support what “looks good,” or “feels right” with no real thought process behind it. This makes you an ignorant do-gooder who contributes to the decline of our society.
4. You are a bigot, you just don’t know it yet.
You’ve slandered people on the right, and you’ve oppressed people who did not agree with you. You’ve dehumanized friends, family members and even colleagues by calling them racists, misogynists, idiots, nazis and xenophobes. You did this, you know you did this, and you know it’s bigotry, you just won’t admit it yet.
5. You think blacks and Hispanics are inferior, and you support mass genocide.
Essentially, you’re the real racists, and you’re only one small step away from overtly supporting mass oppression and mass genocide. You dehumanize blacks and Hispanics, and pretend they would be helpless without you. You call them things like “super-predators” behind closed doors, but pretend to champion their causes at all other times. Meanwhile, you only care about your own image, and care little if anything for the minorities you indirectly denigrate. Democrats of old passed laws to designate blacks as “not-human,” while democrats of today passed laws to designate the unborn as “not-human.” You already support mass genocide and mass oppression, you just don’t know it yet.
6. You are woefully ignorant of how business and taxes work.
It’s easy to get you riled up about Trump’s taxes, because you don’t know anything about taxes. You think when the government sends you a refund check it’s a gift from the Feds. You’re also completely ignorant about business, how it works, why it exists, and what it has done for our society. You are business illiterate, and you probably have a degree in communications, anthropology, sociology, or some other obscure liberal art.
7. You think the media is unbiased (except Fox News), and you think academics know everything.
Your ignorance of the bias which exists in the media and within academia is stunning. You think journalists and academics are inviolable, and you practically salivate when you read/watch a piece or read a study which you already agree with. You are very susceptible to the halo effect, and you value credentials over results. You have very little ability to think critically or rationally, and your success in life and in your career have suffered as a result of your poor judgement. You are brilliantly ignorant, and supremely egotistical with nothing to show for it. You are what I like to call, an intellectual with no judgement, or a thinker with no mind. You are sad and angry about this, because your lack of understanding of the world and how it works leaves you frustrated and feeling depressed. As a result, you attack and demoralize others who do not agree with your simplistic, naive ideals.
If you tell me you support Hillary Clinton, I probably already know everything about you.
And good day, sir.
