There are lots of evidence that correlates liberalism with higher IQs, irrespective of which political party one votes for.

Firstly, what does this video have to do with my comment? You still haven't provided an reasonable evidence that statistically liberalism does not correlate with higher IQs. Don't worry, I don't think you will be able to.

You try and put your liberal/socialist/progressive ideology on a pedestal. Your not as smart or your colleagues as you think....

Leftists try and think they're holyer than though... :D

No, liberals aren't smarter than conservatives

Nothing promotes popular culture libel – the propagation of myths, lies and misinformation in society and in popular media – as does technology. Ready access to information is only part of the equation. The remainder is ready access to publication – the ability of individuals, no matter how misinformed, to transmit into the public sphere poorly sourced, poorly analyzed, poorly reasoned pseudoscience that supports their political agenda. When a media outlet of any kind picks up a headline or a sound bite that furthers the left-leaning popular information and entertainment industry’s unwritten but nonetheless shared agenda to trash conservatives and libertarians, that bite, clip or statement is repeated ad nauseam in multimedia on the Internet, in print and on television.

This is not news. Since e-mail first became popular, often-forwarded and quite apocryphal “urban legend” messages have been relayed from user to user, furthering falsehoods concerning everything from cookie recipes to Nigerian royalty offering investment opportunities. All too often, these forwarded missives contained lies about Republicans. Remember the list of quotes Vice President Dan Quayle was alleged to have said? Many were manufactured. Then there was the e-mail purporting to reveal scientific evidence that George W. Bush had the lowest IQ of any president in the last 50 years. It turns out that was a lie, too.

Democrats vs Republicans...

Uneducated and unintelligent people vote Democrat

Public Housing - 81% D vs 12% R

Medicaid - 74% D vs 16% R

Food Stamps - 67% D vs 20% R

Unemployment Compensation - 64% D vs 25% R

Welfare/Public Assistance - 63% D vs 22% R

Here's some more info to have fun with. We all know that /r/politics loves to call conservative voters dumb, or uneducated, or unintelligent. Presenting yourself as intellectually superior to those who think differently than you do, and even actively building the "dumb conservative" strawman, is what the drones in here thrive on. It creates the foundation for their feelings of ideological superiority and allows them to ignore any criticism or opposition as being leveled by "those idiots". So, let's have some fun, shall we?

That's an opinion piece on a right-wing site. What do you expect. I want evidence worthy of a research paper, which is what I provided (research papers).

Additionally, this dumb article equates liberal with Democrat and conservative with Republican. The fact is that many liberal minded individuals would be seen as libertarian or similar and certainly not old-school Democrat. Honestly, it is reposting this lazy thinking and "journalism" which makes it hard to take your posts seriously.

This is not about me, or even you. A single fool or two are not going to make a dent in the statistics. Statistical correlations like this one (ones IQ isn't particularly determined by whether you are liberal or not, but being liberal means that your IQ is likely to be a little higher), don't tend to lend themselves to trying to determine an individual's IQ. But, I'll say this, at least one of us is a idiot for arguing with the other, and I'm starting to think it is me.

Just to be clear, liberalism and socialism are very different things. Liberalism and progressivism are somewhat related, but again aren't the same.

Who hires these leftwing nutcases?

Prof: ‘white marble’ in artwork contributes to white supremacy

University of Iowa professor recently argued that appreciation of “white marble” used in classical artwork contributes to “white supremacist ideas today.”

Professor Sarah Bond demonstrates in an article published in Hyperallergic that “many of the statues, reliefs, and sarcophagi created in the ancient Western world were in fact painted,” meaning the “white marble” often seen in such pieces of art were intended to be colored.

Consequently, Bond argues that “the equation of white marble with beauty is not an inherent truth of the universe,” and is thus “a dangerous construct that continues to influence white supremacist ideas today.”

Is this because of courses like "White privilege" being offered to leftists on campuses across America?

Conditioning children before they even enter college....

Minnesota Schools Adopt Transgender Toolkit for Kindergartners

A “transgender toolkit” for public schools in Minnesota advises teachers to call children “scholars” instead of boys and girls.

The guidelines were approved Wednesday by the “School Safety Technical Assistance Council” and will be distributed to Kindergarten through 12th grade public schools and charter schools throughout the state. The toolkit attempts to “ensure a safe and supportive transition” for children becoming a different gender at school.

The toolkit allows for boys who identify as girls to use the girls’ bathroom, and tells teachers to ask kids what their “preferred pronouns” are.

So ... it's your civil right to be stupid?!?


California College Chancellor Wants To Abolish Algebra Requirement, Calls It A ‘Civil Rights Issue’

Image

The chancellor of California’s community college system said he wants to abolish the college algebra requirement and called it a “civil rights issue” in a Wednesday interview.

Eloy Ortiz Oakley, chancellor of California Community Colleges, made the argument while speaking with NPR. He pegged algebraas overly burdensome due to the disproportionate rate at which it prevents students from graduating from community colleges; nearly 50 percent of community college students do not complete their math requirement.

“This is a civil rights issue, but this is also something that plagues all Americans — particularly low-income Americans,” said Oakley. “If you think about all the underemployed or unemployed Americans in this country who cannot connect to a job in this economy — which is unforgiving of those students who don’t have a credential — the biggest barrier for them is this algebra requirement. It’s what has kept them from achieving a credential.”
