Progressives View Voters as Dumb

Posted by Steve Markowitz on June 22, 2012

The weeklystandard.com posted an article titled Retiring Dem: ‘The People Have Gotten Dumber’ that goes a long way towards explaining how the Left views the electorate.  When asked the question about changes he has seen during his 30 years in Washington, retiring Congressman Gary Ackerman, Democrat from New York, said “I think the people have gotten dumber.”

Ackerman’s view of the electorate is typical Progressivism.  They believe the people are too stupid to know what’s good for them and therefore must rely on elitist politicians to manage their daily and longer-term lives.  If Ackerman is correct, he and his Associates have sure made a mess of things.
