Female Democratic Senator: We’re Just Too Darn Smart!

Filed under: General — Dana @ 5:47 pm



[guest post by Dana]

To which I’m compelled to ask: You sure about that??

I’m enjoying focusing on the left side of the aisle these days. They just keep on giving! (Not that the Republicans don’t bring the ridiculous as well, but I’m intentionally ignoring that side of the aisle, for the moment.) So, on the heels of JVW’s terrific post concerning the too clever by half Kamala Harris, let me just remind you of what another prominent Democratic woman, who also had her sights set on the presidency, foolishly said to wealthy elite donors at a fundraiser in Manhattan. Foolish, yes, but almost certainly revealed the true heart of liberal progressives:

You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people — now 11 million. He tweets and retweets their offensive hateful mean-spirited rhetoric. Now, some of those folks — they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America.”

It seems to be baked in with female Democrats in politics, this compulsion to sneeringly dismiss others who hold views and beliefs different than their own as something less than. The presumption that what they say is truth and light, and the very insight needed at any given moment seems de rigueur within their ranks. This week, removing any doubt that this stunning arrogance is widespread and representative of liberals at large, is Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI). During a recent interview with Dahlia Lithwick at the “Bend Towards Justice” conference, Hirono, while answering a question about why the liberals haven’t reproduced the “focus and intensity” conservatives used to explain “why the courts matter, unfortunately also demonstrated that she learned nothing from Hillary’s infamous blunder. And how smart is that?

One of the things that we Democrats have a really hard time with is connecting people’s hearts instead of here (points to brain). We’re really good at shoving out information that touch people here (points to brain), not here (points to her heart). And I have been saying at all of our Democratic retreats that we need to speak to the heart, not in a manipulative way, not in a way that brings forth everybody’s fears and resentments, but truly to speak to the heart so people actually know that we’re actually on their side. We have a really hard time doing that and one of the reasons that was told to me at one of our retreats was that we Democrats know so much. That is true.

And we have to tell everybody how smart we are and so we have a tendency to be very left brain and we think, really? That is not how people make decisions. So one of the books I always bring up is “The Righteous Mind” by Jonathan Haidt where the image is of an elephant. And the elephant is making all the decisions – go right, go forward, whatever. There’s a rider on the elephant. The rider simply explains the elephant’s decisions. Republicans speak to the elephant, the Democrats speak to the rider. That is why we’re not speaking to people here (heart) and we’re just mainly going here and it’s a huge issue.

Got that? Democrats are just smarter than everyone else. They can’t help it. God just shone more brightly upon them. Or maybe they slipped out of the primordial ooze with an extra stash of brain cells. And if they can’t help being smarter than the rest of us, then we just can’t help being, you know, not as smart.

Yet it’s all pretty amusing when one considers how frequently everyone’s favorite daffy socialist niece, the newest darling of the left, regularly says the funniest things

Anyway, I thought I’d tie up the post with another female liberal progressive, who also has high hopes of becoming the (first female) President of the United States. [Ed. I could have told her this would happen, in spite of not being Hirono-smart…]:

[Elizabeth] Warren, a progressive who is widely expected to launch a presidential bid, faced criticism when she unveiled a video in October aimed at putting to rest questions about whether she has Native American heritage. The attempt to stand up to President Donald Trump’s attacks — he repeatedly calls her “Pocahontas” — seems to have backfired. The New York Times reported Thursday, “Advisers close to Ms. Warren say she has privately expressed concern that she may have damaged her relationships to Native American groups and her own standing with activists, particularly those who are racial minorities.”

I don’t know. Seems to me if these Democrats were as smart as they believe themselves to be, they would’ve studiously paid attention to Hillary Clinton during the campaign, and wouldn’t be saying and doing such dumb stuff themselves.

  1. Hello.

    Dana (023079)

  2. That’s right up there with buzzfeed blaming Facebook for the fuel riots.

    Narciso (d1f714)

  3. She is referring to the fact that she knows a lot of misinformation. That video is pure satire. Watch it if you haven’t.

    AZ Bob (885937)

  4. I think the term is educated idiots. worry about a democrat who says conservative republicans are just as smart as me maybe smarter and my edge over them is that they are evil and self destructive like nixon. intelligence is over rated ;but you have to be highly intelligent to realize this! its not what you know its what you can do with what you know.

    lany (d0b892)

  5. Is it possible this quote has been edited to cut it short? Maybe she said “We’re just to darned smart-aleck”?

    *snort*

    Dearie, the problem isn’t that you epiDemic-rats know so much. As a great man once said, it’s that you know so much that ain’t so.

  6. Ah Perry, you’re still upset Nixon saw through your golden boy KGB stooge alger hiss.

    Narciso (d1f714)

  7. Snicker. Elephant, huh? Balaam’s Donkey would be foreign to her. And, yes, I mean to say foreign — she’s in the Senate because a majority of her constituency do not consider themselves Americans.

    Say what you want about Trump (God knows I do), when he decided to run for President, he did not go out and talk to people. He went out and listened to people. Then, when he talked to them, he told them what they had told him.

    nk (dbc370)

  8. Because they have to beg for money from these people in New York and california.

  9. gillibrand’s “future is female” blitherings belongs in here somewhere

  10. Allahpundit dropped a truth-bomb on Hirono’s nonsense yesterday:

    There’s only one thing that makes a partisan happier than being told that their party’s political problems are merely messaging problems, as messaging problems are comparatively easy to fix. That’s being told that they’re too cerebral, that they’ve got the “policy mastery” part of politics down but need improvement in soft retail skills like telling affecting stories — the sort of thing anyone can do. Just be yourself. Speak from the heart. Preach the ideological gospel and people will follow. The keys to total victory are already in hand! Righties aren’t immune from this either.

    And yet virtually every Democratic policy preference, from big-picture matters like climate change to annual haggling over how much spending will increase (increase, not shrink), is framed nowadays in terms of just how many people will die if they don’t get their way.

    Dave (1bb933)

  11. “And yet virtually every Democratic policy preference, from big-picture matters like climate change to annual haggling over how much spending will increase (increase, not shrink), is framed nowadays in terms of just how many people will die if they don’t get their way.”

    And when we have the NERVE to ask how many will die if the DO get their way, they get all huffy. They have to. They can’t afford to look at the actual record.

    C. S. P. Schofield (531c3d)

  12. Hirono is so smart, as she showed during the Kavanaugh hearings when she in essence said “of course it was rape, he’s a man.”

    Colonel Haiku (5b7649)

  13. This nut from Hawaii is scared to death of being free, too much responsibility in freedom for her taste.

    mg (8cbc69)

  14. They are nothing if not emotional. In addition, they will always value good intentions much more than the bad results, which are more often than not the case.

    Colonel Haiku (5b7649)

  15. Democrats just have such a high opinion of their intellectual acumen — just ask them if you don’t believe me. But what they don’t realize is that an echo chamber rarely leads to enlightenment.

    It’s like when you hear from progressives that Joe Biden is wise but Dan Quayle is a fool. Upon what data is that based? Why the simple fact that Joe Biden believes all the same things they believe, and they know that they’re really wise, ergo Joe Biden must also be wise.

    JVW (42615e)

  16. Well its striking how often Biden was wrong from the war powers act to the Afghan strategy uphold until 2016.

    Narciso (d1f714)

  17. Heh! That reminded me of something from 2008.

    In a recent chat, a testy Karl Rove says the VP-elect [Joe Biden] “has an odd combination of longevity and long-windedness that passes for wisdom in Washington.”

    http://www.newser.com/story/42742/ouch-rove-takes-shots-at-obama-inner-circle.html
    Testy, testy Karl Rove!

    nk (dbc370)

  18. I remember that line from Rove. I always thought it was perfect.

    JVW (42615e)

  19. I want every member of Congress to take the SAT and have the score published.

    Kevin M (6fea79)

  20. I doubt a majority could find the classroom.

    mg (8cbc69)

  21. Chuck Schumer wastes no opportunity to tell all of us that he got a perfect score on the SAT back when he took them. Back in our day the high score was 1600 (800 math, 800 verbal), but I understand that these days the high is 2400 with the addition of 800 points for a writing sample. I assume you still get 200 points on each segment simply for marking down at least one answer.

    I would place the over/under line for Maize Hirono at around 1240 combined for the three segments.

    JVW (42615e)

  22. I think it’s back to 1600 again.

    Kevin M (6fea79)

  23. So when I say global warming is a fraud, can I boost my credentials by the fact that I got a 33 in Natural Science on the ACT?

    nk (dbc370)

  24. Chuck Schumer wastes no opportunity to tell all of us that he got a perfect score on the SAT back when he took them.

    But the truth lies with Obama’s transcripts.

    A. Over-population
    B. Seagulls
    C. Nuclear attack from North Korea
    D. Capsizing
    E. All of the above.”

    Kevin M (6fea79)

  26. But he admitted in Brill’s after that he chose law because he flunked pre chem.

    A. $2000

    C. $1800
    D. $2500
    E. Tuesday”

  30. Then you have the other leftist lunatic that identifies as female who says, to paraphrase the woman that ruined Star Wars, “the future is female and intersectional.”

    Is that sexist? Is that bigoted? Or is is just obnoxiously stupid from someone who clearly has more brain cells than the rest of us.

    NJRob (4d595c)

  31. Hirono wants to be famous not functional.

    mg (8cbc69)

  32. And besides, she’s Asian, which makes her just that much smarter.

    I just love it when the Left goes on about how the Right doesn’t believe in science, or clings to their guns or religion, then goes out of their way to avoid “glutens” which they could not define for their lives. Sounds fattening though. Or messes with their chakra. Or something bad.

    They removed the writing sample as it was too easy to game and you didn’t need to even write about the topic given. But they also got rid of analogies and the most difficult math to further dumb down the test.

  34. Hirono wants to be famous not functional.

    ask them if they believe the planet is trying to defend itself from humanity and if we are killing it through global warming? They believe in a religion; it’s just leftism.

    Narciso (d1f714)

  43. If you are good at multiple choice the SAT has always been fairly easy. A good multiple choice question will have only two options that might be the actual answer. So throw out the others and you have a 50% chance of being correct even if you don’t know the answer. Back in the 70s I got 800Verbal/770Math, and several of my classmates got 800s on both parts. It’s the tests where you have to give the answer and show your work that really divide sheep and goats. To the best of my knowledge, none of those perfect SAT Scorers have become Giants of Industry, Masters of Wall Street, Supervillians, or anything else that might be considered more successful at life than normal. Good SATs merely show the student is good at taking tests, nothing more.

    (Worst multiple exam was the one included in the Florida Bar Exam. Any member of the Bar could submit a question, and therefore the questions were written by people who had no idea of how to write a test question. So several questions had a list of options all of which could be the correct answer…and there was one question which I was prepared to swear dud not include any correct answer among its options.)

    You forgot to leave open a category or possibly subcategory for too many Marines. Which, back in in 1944 I doubt was an issue, as much as the “gentleman” from Georgia might complain now.

    I might note that ADM Willard controlled himself manfully when confronted with this thing from Georgia. Which I would have expected as I knew him as the CO of VF-51, our sister squadron on the Vinson. “Rat” is and was a d@mned cool customer and not unsettled by much.

    Ask the Guamanians who are old enough to remember if there’s such a thing as having too many Marines on the island. This anniversary of Pearl Harbor.

  70. The Times article on Warren is a joke.

    It’s almost like someone from Warren’s camp wrote it. If you read it carefully, the “worries” in her camp and her party are that her announcement on the DNA test was bad not because it made her whiter than white and made all her claims on ancestry look ridiculous but that it brought up despicable blood purity issues and gave evil racists a chance to make her an outsider while also undermining all the awesome work she’s done for Native Americans and other minority/marginalized communities.

    It also blames her decision to announce on the fact that her advisory team just isn’t diverse enough or they would have told her that Trump and all the “bullies” would not stop heckling her “regardless of what the truth is”.

    It’s almost as if the Times was looking for a way to criticize her softly while saying the issue is meaningless. If you read the Times’ readers’ comments, most agree, although there is also a fairly large portion who think even bringing the matter up is a mis-step equal to discussing another meaningless issue, Hillary’s emails.
