This is an interesting article on how Americans see themselves and how our most public institutions portray us. And, of course, why this is the case. Today 63% consider themselves Conservative or Very conservative. Whereas only 8% considered themselves very liberal and 25% somewhat liberal. 37 % chose not to answer this question. And yet we Conservatives are treated like non-existent at best and lowlife astro turf thugs by Nancy Pelosi. Remember how she wept real tears while telling the media how she witness this “violent behavior” in San Francisco in the 1970′s. She was talking about the townhall meeting in August 2009 where the one and only violent act was when two SEUI Service Employees International Union thugs attacked and beat up a man handing out “don’t tread on me” flags!
What does this mean for American politics today? It ought to boldly empower conservatives. The “right,” which every Democrat leader reflexively attacks whenever political opposition to their plans grows strong, is the overwhelming majority of Americans. This explains why the left’s ballot initiatives in California last year failed, in some cases, in every single county of the state and why, in liberal Maine, the gay marriage ballot measure failed. This also explains why Obama runs away from “labels” (all leftists do, and have for many years.)What it means in politics is that any true conservative against a true leftist should carry every state and win by a landslide. But it means more than that. Conservatives in the areas of culture, media, entertainment, and education are treated like unwanted stepchildren, or worse. (This, despite the fact that conservatives on average are better educated than liberals.)
The worst victims of invidious bigotry in America today are conservatives. Only a tiny percentage of professors are conservative. The same is true for government supported media like NPR, Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and National Endowment for the Arts. Libraries are dominated by the minority left. How different would America be if fifty or sixty percent of teachers, librarians, professors, public media producers, and staff in government supported organizations were conservative!
