This morning, iOTWReport had a post about LeBron James saying this about Trump voters:
”At the end of the day, I don’t think a lot of people was educated,” he said. “And I think that’s one of the biggest problems that we have. When it becomes vote time, people are just not educated on either the individual or what’s going on in the state of the world right now.”
“I don’t think a lot of people was educated.”
“When it becomes vote time.”
Grammar be hard for the guy more edumacated than we be.
… I don’t think a lot of people are educated and they make choices and say things that are uneducated.
Yes, LeBron. You certainly do.
Now, some of you may be thinking, “Oh, Dianny. You shouldn’t make fun of the fact that LeBron James is stupid.”
But the Left made these rules; I’m just playing by them.
They’re the ones who normalized insulting the intelligence of people with whom they disagree.
And since it’s now acceptable to call people stupid and uneducated, I’m going to do it.
So here goes: LeBron James is stupid and uneducated.
Now, to be fair, he isn’t a rocket scientist, a scholar or mathematician.
He runs around on a court and throws a basketball – not exactly a career that requires intelligence or education.
But for him – within his glass house of stupid – to claim others are “uneducated,” is kinda galling.
At the same time, it’s hardly surprising.
Hillary tried the same tactic in 2016. And how’d that work out for her?
As Ann Coulter pointed out lo these many years ago in her book Slander:
It is important for liberals to demean the people they oppose to reinforce their sense of class superiority. Anyone can associate himself with the elite by adopting the left’s snooty superiority and laughing at Republicans for being dumb hicks.
(Even an idiot like LeBron James.)
Ann also says in Slander:
If liberals were prevented from ever again calling Republicans dumb, they would be robbed of half their arguments. To be sure, they would still have “racist,” “fascist,” “homophobe,” “ugly,” and a few other highly nuanced arguments in the quiver. But the loss of “dumb” would nearly cripple them.
So when you get right down to it, it isn’t at all shocking that even a grammatically-challenged dummy like LeBron James is going the “they be uneducated” route.
See, this is the problem I have with using the term “Elites” to describe these people.
“Elite” used to mean “a group or class of persons considered superior.”
And, to use LeBron’s style of speaking: Maybe they was superior. But they ain’t no more. They be bums.
Like I keep saying, the Left pushes too hard and too far.
And it will be their undoing – in large part because we are beginning to play the game by the rules they created.
Because unlike these supposed “elites,” we’re really good at learning and adapting.
Whereas all they have left in their arsenal is calling us stupid.
