Liberal Bias

Man, I wish I would have been there - I'll be sure to be at his 2020 Inauguration!

In 1789, Thomas Jefferson wrote that, “Wherever the people are well informed they can be trusted with their own government.”

Abused by the media nearly as much as President Trump himself, Trump’s supporters have withstood constant attacks on their character, patriotism, intelligence, and more. The message from the media elite is clear, “If you don’t think and vote the exact way we demand, you are not informed.” However, what does informed mean here in this context? And does informed mean the same as Thomas Jefferson meant it in 1789?

The  difference between Jefferson’s use of the word informed and the media’s is the difference between fact and opinion. Regardless of how popular certain political opinions are in Hollywood,  knowledge of how our democratic republic works to deliver self-government is the most important foundation of being civically informed. Certainly, there are degrees to which political ideas can be right or wrong, but these are fiercely debated, and very rarely concrete or clear.

For example, while the medial elite can (and do) argue that socialism is working for Venezuela, or that tax-and-spend policies are working for Zimbabwe, knowledge of the specific structure of our U.S. government is unambiguous and clear. Voters that know how government works are informed in the most important and foundational way that citizens must be. For example – a fact: On November 8th, Americans didn’t just vote for President, they also voted to elect a Representative – their elected official in the House of Representatives in Washington, DC. This is done every two years.

Survey Findings

A recent poll by Haven Insights shows that Trump voters have a distinct and consistent edge in civic knowledge over their Hillary supporting and 3rd party supporting counterparts. In stark contrast to the media narrative, Trump supporters are not only more informed than the general public, but also more than their political rivals.

  • Trump voters were more likely to know the name of their U.S. Representative than Hillary supporters (45% to 38%).
  • While 66% of the public know that their U.S. Representative is up for election 2 years, slightly more (68%) of Trump voters knew this simple fact. However, as embarrassing as it is, Hillary supporters performed the worst in this simple question (65%)!
  • A shocking 23% of the public voted for their U.S. representative without even knowing their Representative’s name. However, Trump voters – educated and civically responsible –were the most likely to walk into the voting booth informed and knowing the name of their elected representatives. Hillary supporters performed the worst.
  • Embarrassingly, nearly a third of liberals (30%) went to the voting booth having no clue who their U.S. Representative was – while only 21% of conservatives had a similar struggle in the voting booth.

Trump voters consistently had the edge over both the general population, and their political opponents in basic civic knowledge – who their Representative was, what party they belonged to, and if they were even on the ballot.

The Trump Edge

It isn’t enough to just go out and go through the motions of voting – voters have to have a baseline understanding of who and what exactly they are voting for. Trump supporters systematically outperformed everyone in knowledge of their Representative.

The real-world result of this knowledge edge was that Trump supporters and conservatives succeeded in specifically delivering their support to conservatives and Republicans in key narrow races across the nation. One example is in Maine, where Rep. Bruce Poliquin, soundly beat his opponent – a well funded disciple of Nancy Pelosi named Emily Cain.

As Tea Party Leader, Matt Kibbe, famously declared, “Government goes to those who show up.” Trump supporters simply know more about their government than any other slice of the electorate. This allowed them to make their opinions heard, even over and above the scorn and abuse heaped upon them by the media.

How low will they go?

Left-leaning media outlets made sure they left no opportunity to make claims that ex-Fox News guest had been allegedly harassed by cable host Sean Hannity – However, their stories were built on rumors as opposed to facts.

As per a radio interview conducted on Friday, with 1170 KFAQ host Pat Campbell, Debbie Schlussel said “Hannity tried to get me to go back to the hotel after the show after he and his executive producer Bill Shine [now Fox’s co-president] treated me horribly.”

Schlussel went on and said she was banned from Fox News, because she had refused to go back to Hannity’s hotel after a book signing in the early 2000s. Schlussel on the other hand, did not acknowledge that fact that he had asked Hannity to his hotel room.

Ignoring the fact that the ex-Fox guest never claimed that Hannity sexually harassed her, even the radio station she spoke with characterized the conversation that way: “Debbie Schlussel accuses Sean Hannity of Sexual Harassment.”

“I would never accuse him of that. Sexual harassment has a special meaning under the law, and I would never accuse him of that,” Schlussel had stated. “I never thought I was sexually harassed by Sean Hannity — I thought he was weird and creepy, not someone I liked.”

This false story had spread all over the Internet ever since, with the The Daily Beast running the since-changed headline, “Sean Hannity Accused of Sexually Harassing Fox News Guest,” and The Huffington Post writing, “Sean Hannity is the latest Fox News star to be accused of sexual harassment.”

Since then, The Huffington Post and The Daily Beast have since updated their stories. And in an interview Monday, with LawNewz.com, Schlussel, a lawyer, set the record straight.

Hannity released a rather scornful statement following Schlussel radio interview last week & made it evident that he would take her to court for libel,  Let me be clear about the comments about me on a radio show this week K by this individual are 100% false and a complete fabrication. This individual is a serial harasser who has been lying about me for well over a decade. The individual has a history of making provably false statements against me in an effort to slander, smear and besmirch my reputation. The individual has not just slandered me over the years but many people who this individual disagrees with.”

Schlussel went on forth and mentioned that Hannity is considering a countersuit, despite the fact that her comments were “defamatory.”

Hypocrisy is the one thing that joins all Liberals together. They want to ban what they don’t agree with, but keep what they do agree with. It doesn’t matter how rude or offensive it is.

The most recent example of the liberal hypocrisy is the erection of five different nude statues of Donald Trump.

Life-sized naked replicas of Trump, but the images don’t include any testicles. The artist is trying to say that Trump has “no balls”.

The piece is less of an artistic expression and more of a crass attention grabbing effort.

The statues showed up in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Cleveland.

To Donald and his supporters the statue is not funny and rude, but you don’t see millions of people protesting and trying to remove the statue.

If an artist did the same thing to Hillary with sagging body parts and added “testicles” there would be offended liberals everywhere. They would tear down the statues, protest and prosecute the people who made them.

They would attack Trump for body shaming and feminists would be angry at the change on her body saying, “women don’t need balls, we are equal without them”.

It would be crazy, and you know it would be too!

A mural of Hillary Clinton in a bathing suit was criticized recently to the point the artist had to paint over it, and painted Hillary in a burka.

The artist is using a lose interpretation of the “Emperor’s New Clothes” story and titled his pieces “Emperor With No Balls”.

Liberals are laughing and sharing the images of a naked Trump with clever headlines like, “Naked Trump Erections In Five Cities”. It is a shame they don’t spend as much time researching Hillary Clinton as they do making fun of Donald Trump.

What do you think about the statue? Let us know in the comments below.
