Ignorance or stupidity?
The mainstream media in every way shape and form has been a leftist propaganda machine pushing their agendas for quite sometime. From ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, FOX, MTV, VH1, BRAVO, NICKELODEON, CNN, Disney, Comedy Central the list goes on and on. Daily we are blasted with shows that promote any and all leftist agendas from gay militants to race to gun control. Unfortunately my generation (millennials) and the upcoming generation have been saturated with this propaganda so much that when they are hit with the real truth using facts countering the leftist media agenda they respond with stupidity because they in a sense have been brainwashed.
Fortunately for the conservative base internet and radio has been a saving grace. From Rush, Mark Levin, Michael Savage, and so on to websites like Breitbart, Drudge, Town Hall, Young Conservatives, and bloggers more and more people are being hit with factual truths more than ever before and slowly eroding the leftist media grip on the people. The once ignorant are turning around to become informed voters instead of low information voters. Ignorance by definition is the lacking of knowledge or awareness in general; uneducated or unsophisticated. Ignorance can be turned around by informing the people. Stupidity unfortunately cannot be solved by informing the people. Stupidity overshoots ignorance by it's definition of the lacking of intelligence or common sense.
If you inform an ignorant person of the facts and they change their views because they are now informed then they were once ignorant. If you inform a stupid person of facts and they still reject the truth then they are not ignorant they are stupid. That is the overall goal of the leftist media propaganda to make a generation of not ignorant people but stupid people who will believe anything and everything they hear by mainstream media to become leftist slaves.
Recently we have seen this with the false slander of Republican Candidates like Dr. Ben Carson and Donald Trump, as well as leftist bias in the debates. The leftist media (knowing full well that the once ignorant people are waking up) has upped it's game and decided to put out falsified information to corral the stupid people in to the continuance of voting left. The mainstream news outlets shouldn't be respected nor should the people working for them be respected. They no longer tell the truth and report fair and balanced news. Everything has shifted left. Therefore we the citizen who use truth and facts to fight the liars of leftist media must do all we can to undermine and destroy their waning credibility and propaganda. We can turn around the ignorant, but we can't save the stupid.
