Sunday Conservapedia*


*Because reality has a "liberal bias"

Elitism

"Elitism is an attitude or belief in one's superiority based solely on membership in a particular group or community. Elitism can be seen, for example, in the delusion that being a celebrity or a gatekeeper of the mainstream news media in itself imparts sufficient wisdom to justify airing one's personal opinion on an issue.

During his ministry Jesus attacked the religious elitism of the Saduccees and the Pharisees which led them to manipulate the ruling Roman governor into executing this populist upstart. Because it is based in the values of Christianity, conservatism has an ambition to be populist, unlike liberalism, in which the beliefs of the intellectual elitists make them superior to the public.

Notable elitists include:
  1. Al Gore
  2. Barack Hussein Obama
  3. Hillary Clinton
  4. Franklin Delano Roosevelt
  5. Marie Antoinette"

Personally, I agree with Jon Stewart's response to the raising of the "elitism" cry:

"You know, I hear what you're all saying, but doesn't elite mean GOOD? Is that not something we're looking for in a candidate anymore?.. I know 'elite' is a bad word in politics, and you wanna go bowling and throw back a few beers, but the job you're applying for, if you get it and it goes well, they might carve your head into a mountain. If you don't actually think you're better than us, then what the FUCK do you think you're doing [running for president]... In fact, not only do I want an elite president, but I want someone who is embarrassingly superior to me. I want somebody who speaks 16 languages..."
Those who don't think that it's a good idea to have someone superior to John Q Public in charge need to have their heads examined. ...That, and a little familiarity with Plato's thoughts on direct democracy.
