Elitist Kasie Hunt asks if Ted Cruz’s Harvard education may be a turn-off for Conservative voters.
“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” – George Orwell
Ever since he was elected to the Senate in 2012, Ted Cruz has been a target of the left. Now that he’s announced his designs to run for president, the target has eclipsed the man. At this point, the leftist media will do everything they can to degrade Cruz’s image, even in the most petty way. How petty has the media become? They have already resorted to condescension toward Cruz’s supporters.
MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt said the following on Monday:
“…[Ted Cruz] grew up in Houston, attended Princeton and Harvard. So, not necessarily the kind of pedigree that would immediately seem to appeal to the base of the party, but at the same time those are the voters he’s going after here…he also clerked at the Supreme Court, was the Texas Solicitor General, and worked on the 2000 Bush campaign.”
Take a whiff of that condescending, elitist BS.
Hunt claims that someone who graduated from Princeton and Harvard has too much of a pedigree for conservative voters. This is how the left regards conservatives. To elitist liberals, conservatives are uneducated, hateful, bigoted, low-skill rubes. They hate science because they dare to question anthropogenic global warming; they hate women because they don’t like the idea of an infant’s limbs being clamped off before having its head suctioned out; they hate progress because they stand against embryonic stem-cell research; they hate minorities because they don’t want to provide endless handouts; they hate poor people because they oppose socialized healthcare; they hate immigrants because they oppose amnesty for law-breakers; they hate gays because they support the sanctity of marriage. Oh, lastly, they are religious wack-jobs, whose faith keeps them in the dark ages.
This is the lens through which liberals see conservatives.
Given that perspective, it only makes sense that Kasie Hunt would ask the obvious question: How can conservatives possibly support someone who went to that there Harvard learnin’ place for smarty-pants people?
I guess I support Ted Cruz because he actually stands for conservative principles, such as limited government, economic freedom, and social morality. Where others have bent, he has stood firm. I support him because he is able to fly right over the heads of journalists who ask him endless gotchya questions. I support him because he has an uncompromising sense of what is right, and he is entirely unafraid to stand upon his principles, regardless of how he is portrayed by the media. I support him because he is a brilliant tactician and debater. I support him because of his record of accomplishments as an attorney before the Supreme Court. I support him because he does what he says he is going to do, regardless of the circumstances. Above all, I support him because he is a disruptor to the establishment in Washington.
When someone stands for 21 hours in an attempt to do what he promised his constituents he would do, in the face of a lynch-mob media he knew would turn many Americans against him, that is a show of personal integrity.
In short, I support Ted Cruz because he has earned my support.
So Kasie Hunt, before you judge conservatives, how about you stop, asses your personal biases, and ratchet your elitist, condescending attitude down just a few notches.
Just some helpful advice from your friendly neighborhood rube.
