Jerky Day: Return of the Insufferable Know-it-All Drone Army

Insufferable know-it-all

Leftists won’t be satisfied until they’ve ruined every single institution and tradition in our society.

Nothing is safe from their poisonous clutches — the Senate, the Electoral College, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, Free Market Capitalism, not even the family.

Ever since the advent of the dreadful Obama years, Leftists can’t even leave holidays alone.

In 2015, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest suggested the Obama faithful use Thanksgiving as an opportunity to lecture their family on gun control.

Even Fourth of July festivities weren’t safe from the Obama Administration’s endless carping. In 2015, his HHS released a guide on how to talk to your family about Obamacare.

Of course that same year, Hillary also joined the “Turn into an Insufferable Know-It-All this holiday season” bandwagon when her campaign released tips on How to win a Thanksgiving debate with Republicans.

So it should hardly be a shock that with Thanksgiving fast approaching, the Insufferable Know-it-All Drone Army is once again gearing up for battle.

Now, I realize that young people today believe that they are the smartest, wisest and most informed of all living beings to ever walk the Earth.

Of course they do. Every generation, young people think that way.

I’m fifty-five, but I remember clearly coming home for Thanksgiving break during my Freshman year and sanctimoniously lecturing my elders as if my eighteen years on this planet made me vastly more knowledgeable than they.

Let me tell you, I look back on that and cringe.

Nobody likes an insufferable know-it-all – especially when the aforementioned insufferable know-it-all doesn’t really know what the hell she’s talking about.

Socrates said the beginning of wisdom is knowing you know nothing.

But alas, coming to understand that takes time and maturity.

So, sure. I cringe at how much of an insufferable know-it-all I was lo those many years ago. And it kills me to admit that I remained that way until my early thirties.

Most people eventually grow out of this notion that they are so much smarter than their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles – and every single human being that ever existed.

Notice I said “most people.” Not everybody.

Some people get to be my age and they are still as insufferable and irritating in their condescension as they were in their twenties.

Michelle and Barack for example. They totally haven’t grown out of it.

I mentioned last week in my column Obedient Sheep that young socialists have a not-so-new rallying cry: “We will outlive you.”

I know. Kinda smacks of eugenics, doesn’t it?

And when you view yourself as superior, is it surprising you become an insufferable know-it-all?

Is it at all shocking that those with this mindset view holiday gatherings as an opportunity to lecture and scold a captive audience?

When you have this haughty view of your own self-importance, it’s inevitable that you treat everyone else not as if they’re from a different generation, but as if they’re from a backward and barely literate civilization.

It’s why Alexandria Occasionally-Confused – that insufferable dink without a single intelligent thought – feels confident in mocking Governor Sarah Palin as sounding like one of those “FWD:RE:FWD:WATCH THIS grandpa emails.”

They have no respect for those who came before them.

And they think this lack of respect gives them carte blanche to subject their family to one long, sanctimonious condescending screed.

For them, history began the moment after the doctor slapped ‘em on the ass and they uttered what was no doubt the first of many helpless cries.

They truly believe that older generations and history itself have nothing to offer them.

We are nothing. We know nothing. And, never forget (well, they won’t let you), they will outlive us.

And those of us who learned the hard way that we really knew nothing in our youth, simply roll our eyes at just how ignorant these arrogant fools really are.

    Don’t feel badly – it took me until my mid-forties.

      Of course the young will outlive us….that’s the way it’s designed to work. Unfortunately for them, they will then find that it comes with the extra benefit of having to pay your own way while the next generation of know-nothings try to somehow claim the fruits of your labor. And the wheel of time keeps turning…

    I can’t forget during the Obama reign of terror he cancelled the National Day of Prayer,ignored most Christian holidays but never,not once let a Muslim holiday pass without a shoutout to his fellow goat rapists.

    I still cringe when I reflect on my liberal views during my college years.

    The military cured me of that particular conceit.

    Good article. Happy Thanksgiving, Dianny.
