How Ignorant are Obama Supporters?

We know that Obama supporters are as ignorant about economic issues as the president. They don’t care about economics as long as their college education is being paid for by other people.

In 2008, there was a large turnout of youth voters, most of whom were college students. To get into college, a certain amount of academic acumen is necessary. We’re talking about at least C+ students.

Then there are blacks who turn a blind eye to Obama’s harmful social and economic policies because the president is black. Race trumps policy.

The fine folks at Howard Stern’s operation went into Harlem and asked people who are supporting President Obama this time around some simple questions about Mitt Romney and the President. The results are depressing.

It seems that our educational system and so-called black leadership have done a good job in keeping people ignorant. An ignorant populace is an easily led populace. The following is from RealClear Politics:

“Howard Stern contributors Sal and Richard travel to Harlem to interview Obama supporters and ask them why they are voting for Obama.

“Stern and his crew ask denizens of Harlem various outrageous questions, including if they believe Obama will find and kill Osama bin Laden; if Romney is a Muslim; if Obama made the right choice by picking Paul Ryan as his running mate and if he did it because he is black.

“One interviewee was under the impression that 2008 Republican nominee John McCain is also running this time.

“‘Just trust me, not one person knew that Osama bin Laden was dead," Stern said during the segment.

“‘Well, we're obviously dealing with a whole population that doesn't listen to the newscasts or read a newspaper,’ co-host Robin Quivers said.”

These people are SO ignorant. It’s sad . . . depressing . . . and frightening.

      It isn't the TIME they don't have, they just don't CARE if the world is going to hell in a hand basket, as long as they get THEIR cut of the loot (read: WELFARE)! History has shown that when the masses become aware THEY can force others to pay for their support, they become lazy AND greedy! They approve of, then vote for, ANYONE who promises to continue it! When this continues, it LEADS to a civilization's demise! Read "Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire", and other such books and articles. It is INEVITABLE!

      • DontTreadOnMe11

        I read the book years ago and agree. But, all you have to do is look at Greece and you see what you say, now. The US will not be far behind.

          It was Bush's fault. He wrote the script. I trued to discuss this with a friend's daughter. She told me "I am voting for O because I will no longer have to pay for my insurance at work". I asked her where she heard that. She told me it was from her minister. Very sad.

  • Screeminmeeme

    And much to our disgust, these idiots have the right to vote and their vote will ultimately affect us all.

    Obama's re-election DEPENDS on his fawning supporters remaining gullible and ignorant.

      Yes, the downfall of this country will be at the hands of these gullible and ignorant supporters.

        Ignorant is not the word I would use for them

          So true. We do need another stronger word than ignorant to describe them.

          Ignorant, illiterate, deluded, and very definitely dissociated from reality.

        Liberals have locked up the vote of those people who can be fooled all of the time.

      • Evermyrtle

        Yes, and the lazy, uncaring conservatives that find it too much trouble to get out and vote. This means they are deserting the country. There should be a fine. for not voting without a good excuse.

    • rikem9984

      Ironclad evidence of why liberals oppose voter ID laws...These imbeciles don't know what planet they are on, how could they be expected to fill out a form to get an ID

    • johne37179

      Don't worry about their right to vote as many times as they want to -- even after they die. The Democrats will continue to support voter fraud as long as it works for them.

  • deeme

    They are so ignorant that they are getting two hundrend thousand in debt
    before they graduate, and voting for a guy who will make sure they have no jobs
    when they graduate..So they have a house note before they even have a
    house..They will vote for someone who will squander their future for the price of a cell phone or birth control pills..They will vote for someone who will sell their country and all it's freedom calling their allies noise..and heroes bumps in the road..They will vote for someone completely on hearsay, not knowing anything about him but what a drunk friend told them about one guy being for the poor and the other being for the rich, but not knowing the one they think is for the poor's own brother lives in a hut and the one they think is for the rich, actually has helped more poor with his" own" money then any previous President or nominee...
    He
    who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
    He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would
    surely suffice Albert Einstein

    “The greatest ignorance is to reject
    something you know nothing about”Anyway, no drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If
    we're looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for
    drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power.

    The TV series "Bait Car" is taped proof most blacks under age forty do not watch informative TV news or programs. Only one black young-adult suspected a bait car. However, his bro took the Escalade without hesitation. The Escalade is taken so often it is tagged "The Bait Car" by many whites when seen on the roads.

  • PMDavis

    This is the most depressing thing but yet I don't think any one is surprised. The best way to keep control of the masses is to keep them dumb, ignorant and uninformed. Give them just enough to meet their needs and they will follow you anywhere. The black community will follow Obama no matter what he does. They don't care. Give them money and food and they are happy. As one black supporter said on TV in 2008, Obama's gonna give me a free car and house. That's all it takes. The sad thing is they don't realize how they are just being used as pawns in a game of power and control and obviously don't care.

    • TheRaghead

      Now it is free cell phones that we pay for. If you want a real rude awakening, take an armed guard and ride through the "housing". With NO money for food or housing, there are better cars than I drive, from Mercedes, Volvos, BMWs. etc. to Cadillacs. Then, there are the kids, everywhere. This was not the case before 1957! Have we gone forward? Prior to 1957, they were educated, were married, and went to church. The only drug I remember was moonshine in shot houses. So, in 60 years, we successfully destroyed a population in the name of Progress and Diversity. Excuse me while I go puke. Thanks Democratic Party, that is I left it.

  • The Truth

    The democrats have dumbed them down through their unionization of the educational system, their reliance on government for wellfare and soon healthcare. Government control of the masses of people who choose not to think on their own = democrats.

  • Evermyrtle

    This like of ability to understand what is being done to our country by these people could come from II Corinthians 4:3-6

    3. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
    4. In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of CHRIST, who is the image of GOD , should shine unto them.
    5. For we preach not ourselves, but CHRIST JESUS THE LORD; AND ourselves, your servants for JESUS SAKE.
    6. For GOD, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the GLORY OF GOD in the FACE OF JESUS CHRIST

  • ginjit.dw

    Did you expect different...I don't. I was discussing mr mitts 47% comment. All he cared about was that people who take college loans were in that 47%. Romney was lying, absolutely, he said. The 47% is a percentage of people who filed federal tax returns and had zero tax So you can not argue with stupidity regardless of the creed race religion or origin. Stupid knows no difference

  • RayR55

    A notable communist once called these people "useful idiots". It was true then and is still true today.

    • True Patriot

      The communists in the DemonRat Party say that, "We control the stupid Americans." These morons in this interview are the "stupid" Americans that they are talking about. Even the communists think that they are "stupid" for letting them control them.

    I knew that long before the Howard Stern interviews. Just look at all of the social media comments from his cult following. They can't spell let alone put together a complete sentence. But even those who seem semi-intelligent fawn over him. What a complete freak Madonna was the other night at her DC concert squeaking how proud she was that there was a "f'ing black muslin" in the White House and that "you should go f'ing out and vote for him." It's like they're all posessed or something. Maybe I'm the one that's missing it...

    Our education system is producing this. They are ignorant of the truth but not stupid. It is nearly impossible to get a person who has been taught the lies their entire life to consider any other possibility. Unless they have a personal earth-shattering event they will believe the lies to their death.

    Obama is an America Hater who is supported by 4 classes of people: Black Racists, White Guilt Idiots, Leftists and 100% Pure Moron. If people were means tested for the right to vote by validating they are:
    - alive
    - can pass a simple Civics Test
    - are American Citizens
    - positive voter ID
    - not a felon
    - not collecting welfare or supported by government except Social Security
    - pay taxes
    - can pass a drug screen.

    ...Crap Politicians like Obama would be out of a job and back in academia where these Fruit Flies belong.

        • budman

          jazzpast: Probably about a quarter as ignorant as you. Quite frankly, if you still support Obama with all that is known about the economy, jobs and his birth certificate, Social Security Number, Selective Service Number and foreign exchange student in college, then you obviously are brain dead.

        • jazzpast

          Mitt Romney's nothing but a mormon MULLAH, he swore to build the LDS mormon cults Kingdom of God in America, a Theocracy ruled over by the LDS mormon cult! If you vote for Mitt Romney or Obama your BRAIN DEAD!

        • budman

          There are only two candidates and only one is a U.S. Citizen and that is Romney.
          Do your research and you will find that Obama was a foreign exchange student at Occidental College under the name of Barry Sotoero which means his birth certificate is phony. When did Obama change his name and when did he obtain U.S. Citizenship? If you want to vote for a person that was elected illegally to begin with,. You should also know that Obama has spoken publicly 16 times now about his Muslim faith. Personally, I don't care what a person's religion is. I am more concerned about where this country is headed.. I am concerned about though about Shariah law being introduced into this country. It has popped up in a few states now and should never be considered by our courts over present law.
          Since you may have indicated that you will not vote for either person, that is your option and thankfully, we still have that option to write in a candidate but you would be wasting your time in doing this.

        • jazzpast

          Hello! I'm the LDS mormon cult leader Mitt Romney and I think half of the American people are MOOCHERS, PARASITES, RIFFRAFF, TAKERS and LOW LIFES! I'm not concerned about the very poor. My job is not to worry about those people. And you can believe that because that's how I really feel. Please keep donating I need more money to buy the White House! I'm the LDS mormon cult leader Mitt Romney and I believe in half of America.

          It's funny to me, Mitt Romney is going to be roundly defeated, like the polls are now indicating, we can all assume God is giving Romney's LDS mormon cult the appopriate finger.

        • sandraleesmith46

          No, that's merely a side effect; what his AIM is to do is to obliterate from all memory and thought any such concept as a Constitutional Republic, and convince the world that IT, not Marxist Socialism is the fantasy/pipe dream! The concept that people can be FREE is anathema to him as to all communists, as well as to all globalists!

          Paul Ryan draws big crowds and gets people excited. The only thing holding Paul Ryan back is Mitt Romney. Ha, ha, ha! And that's the truth. And by the way I gave two different sources. You didn't read the articles so how would you know they are unbiased?

Then there are those that do not care about the truth, he can't be bad because he is a democrat! They will believe anything, even if it does not make logical sense. The one thing I run across from these staunch democrats when faced with a negative truth about Obama and his administration, they quip up real quick, "well they all are the same way" or "they all lie"! I just can't figure out yet who "they all" is yet!!!

  • flaphil

    It's true. Ignorance is bliss, Obama leads by growing margins in the election. Proof America has been dumbed down by socialist public schools teaching of the past 30-40 years. These same voters hate America. They don't realize the reelection of his Fuhrer will lead to SS and gestapo tactics not seen since the 1930's and 1940's. The demise of our Constitution, outlawing all religion with the exception of Islam and the roundup of people who think they have free speech. We've already experienced this with brainwashing by passing hate speech laws, anger management groups, and programs for people that speak up about fags, religious teachings and abortion. Thanks America.

    Dems are totally brain dead, they still think the Dems are for the working class. The Dems are for Sharia Law, the flag of Islam to fly over the WH, Gay marriage and themselves. That's it, that is all they want. I can't imagine Sharia Law, talk about a war on women and what about the gays and lesbians under Sharia Law they will be killed. The Dems are out of touch with reality and they will be the first ones protesting when their messiah Obama turns his back on them. If Obama wins re-election he will be soo full of power that he will probably declare himself dictator by an executive order, with a slash of a pen our freedoms will be gone.

    NOT aware of their surroundings. and are
    easily bought off and silences by the mainstream media. Mainstream media I mean
    is taken in a larger context. It is a DIVERSION away from the real on goings.
    The average American is fed junk yellow
    journalism ( junk journalism) to brain wash and manipulate. Couple that with
    their head into their GD “smart” phone 24/7,
    waiting for the next generation of phone,
    wondering what kind of tattoo to get, watching reality TV that
    glamourizes decadence, stuffing their fat faces with junk food they just drift
    and wander unaware. A compulsive consumer who produces NOTHING. Joseph Goebbels
    would have been awe struck and proud. There is a revolution coming and
    eventually when these average Americans wakes up it will be too late…..they will have served their purpose of voting for the marxism and socialism candidates, then these same candidates will led them by their nose to the great slaughter......
