Skip to comments.“Left Wing People Are More Intelligent” Says UK Guardian Columnist…

Polly Toynbee, UK Guardian columnist and champagne socialist (house in fashionable Clapham and villa in Tuscany) has been rightly described by Boris Johnson as the living embodiment of all the nannying, high-taxing, high-spending schoolmarminess of the liberal left.

And then they wonder why Londonistan is burning...
Stop about how Christians or Conservatives are stupid. I’t pointless drivel.
Get a prayer rug, UK.
You’ll need it soon.
Those who are intelligent do not have to tell others they are intelligent.
left wing people sure think they are.. usually emotional people who latch on to one angle of a complicated problem and think they have it figured out. meh.
POLLY WANNA FACELIFT?
No need...leftists, liberals and all other Gaia-worshiping neo-pagans will meet their end just as the atheists and secular humanists will under the New Islamic Republic of Europe...
Need to stroke the egos of the useful idiots every once in a while. Otherwise, they wake up from their sleep in the dung heap.
Masterful fact-checking, guys. Just masterful.
Taking a cue from Hitler’s playbook.
This class of people are more intelligent than others.
They just THINK they’re more intelligent.
If limey leftards are sooooo smart, how come they allowed their homes to be burned to the ground during the riots?
Left Wing People “think” they are More Intelligent.
In order to be truly smart one has to have a decent blend of “Common sense and Book Learning” The left side thinks all you need is book learning....
I have met intelligent liberals and I have met liberals that were too stupid to survive without a lifetime supply of government welfare money provided by the US taxpayers. I honestly believe the former outnumber the latter. Liberals are, for the most part, parasitic in nature. Is that intelligent? perhaps, until the host dies or finds a way to shake you off.
“All the blue eyed people are intelligent, graceful, and well-mannered. The brown eyed people are generally slower, clumsier, and have bad manners.”
Amazing you never hear about that experiment that one elementary school teacher did in her classroom.
Liberals really are amazing in that there is no low bar for them.
I noticed that she is not smiling in her picture. I can imagine what her teeth look like. She probably has bad breath to go along with her rotten head. I wish she would blow a kiss to some “intelligent” leftist, like Barbara Boxer.
I wonder how a Marxist, moronic Greenie woman will approch an Imam for “justice” when she cannot vote, drive, own property or show her face, nor can she work outside the home...and can be raped or killed for slighting her hubby.
Oh, and she needs to cut off her daughter’s private part and cannot use birth control...oh, and she has to allow the mosque to send her child for a suicide mission in exchange for martyrdom and cash.
Oh, those Liberals...I wonder how those Paki-run hospitals will be...the food...no restaurants but Middle Eastern ones...get used to curry and goat meat. No bars, no wine. Oh, and their gay friends, Jeff and Biff, they will edure a nice stoning session for their blasphemy...
The poor Liberals hate us FUNDIES who just are so intolerant!
Burn your bras! Hate the Church of England...
Enjoy Sha’ria Law, idiot Libs!
Only when it comes to jo mama being two daddies.
The whole socialist states of Europe are tanking as we speak, even the used to be rich, Germans. Not only that their cities are overrun with Mozlem scum...how smart is all THAT?
The Mutual Admiration Society speaks ...
My post concerns both the UK and America. UK is damn near lost and we are following somewhat the same trail.
OP, the headline is incorrect. It should say UK guardian communist, not columnist.
Response: I don't know about that; but they have used whatever intelligence they do have in order to totally dominate each and every institution of Western Society; Economics, Politics, Media, crime and punishment; marriage, financial institutions, education, business etc. etc. etc.
Comment: The one thing I admire about the left is the fact they never surrender. Even if defeated in a given battle they keep coming back until finally they win the war. The normalization of homosexuality is the prime example. This perverted enterprise has achieved almost total victory over normal society with the only remaining goal being the lowering of the age of consent to about twelve. Once lowering the age of consent is achieved the harvesting of the youth can begin.
those who keep telling themselves that they’re smart are the ones who are dumb but trying to tell people they’re not.
Also if they were so smart then why keep doing the same policies which fail ALL THE TIME.
And conservatives have bigger wangs, are better looking and can manage business better. Hey, we can be neurotically narcissistic too.
So you think they think? I think they FEEEEEEL more smarter!
Left Wing People Are More Intelligent...
Than prairie chickens?
(we could go on all day.)
Left wing people are stupid.
That’s why they’re forced to keep stealing our money to live.
That pretty much says it all...and when SHTF day hits, they will try to run to America to hide...Then I will be all about CLOSING the borders...
Toynbee is a complete idiot and always has been, but then so are the people on here proclaiming the death of the UK. Britain will endure as she always has, in no small part due to her population being 92% white anglo-saxon celtic and 3% muslim.
Judging the UK by what Polly Toynbee says is like judging America by what your president says - pointless and misleading.
Then Lenin must have been a genius. Let’s examine his extraordinary brain. Um, barely any convolutions. The Hemispheres are nearly smooth. OMG, the Bolsheviks turned Russia over to Abby Normal!
Precisely. Why people who seem unable to reason think that they are intelligent is baffling, unless it is, as I once read someone described, that he had read so much about thought that he thought he thought.
(in case you were wondering the strategy behind such an absurd article)
I Thou shalt create an illusion of invulnerability shared by most members to foster excessive optimism and encourage extreme risks taking
II Thou shall not allow any member to question the groups inherent morality, instead members shall be encouraged to ignore the ethical or moral consequences of their decisions
III Thou shalt promote collective efforts to rationalize in order to discount warnings, or other information that might lead members to reconsider their assumptions before they recommit themselves to their assumptions
IV Thou shalt reinforce stereotyped views of enemy leaders as too evil to warrant genuine attempts to negotiate, or as too weak and stupid to counter whatever risky attempts are made to defeat their purpose
V Thou shalt self-censor any deviation from the apparent group consensus, inclining each member to minimize the importance of their doubts and counterarguments
VI Thou shalt create and maintain a shared illusion of unanimity concerning judgement conforming to the majority view
VII Thou shalt apply direct pressure on any member who expresses strong arguments against any of the groups stereotypes, illusions, or commitments, making clear that this type of dissent is contrary to what is expected of all loyal members
VIII Thou shalt appoint mindguards to protect the group from adverse information that might shatter their shared complacency about the effectiveness and morality of their decisions
I know a lot of people with High IQ’s that can barely wipe themelves.
What are you yelling at me for, I didn’t say anything!
I want them closed now.
(She forgot the therefore.)
and therefore left wing people need to use force to take care of and to control the masses for their own benefit, because they are too stupid to function and they are bad.
I nominate your post for Post of the Day.
is that why so many leftie voters are on drugs, welfare, and fell for the sub prime bs?
If they are, it probably has something to do with intelligent people being expected to go to colleges, and colleges being bastions of leftism.
I favor selective closing as opposed to a blanket shut down (at least until we get the courts fixed and they stop passing out freebies like candy to illegals). We always seem to have a soft spot when it comes to some foreign nations but throw up the concertina wire when others “less favored” people show up looking for refuge...When the refugees from jihad start arriving from UK and EU, guess where the NYSLimes and other progressives will be then....
Ironically, this woman is the daughter of Arnold Toynbee, the historian who once said that civilisations die from suicide, not murder...
“Amazing you never hear about that experiment that one elementary school teacher did in her classroom.”
I take it that was supposed to be about cultural conditioning and how easy it is to turn innocent people into Nazis, or whatever. I always thought it worked that way because deep inside we all really, really want to be racists (or bigoted/prejudiced/whatever, as the case may be). Which I find confirmed by all of human history). It’s too dang easy to generalize, stereotype, and reduce.
Now, if they culturally conditioned the kids to enjoy sitting still, eating green beans, or anything else they don’t have a natural inclination to do. I think of this whenever anyone casts advertisers as brainwashers, or even simple hucksters. Yes, advertising is inherently deceptive. But not in the way you think. It wouldn’t work if they tried to get you to do what you didn’t already want to do. The trick is to make you unreasonable about what you want.
If no one ate bacon and eggs for breakfast before 190blah-dee-blah, it wasn’t because no one wanted to eat bacon and eggs. It’s because it didn’t yet occur to them. No one says you have to eat them every morning, or several times a day, or to excess, or to think that in doing so you’ll get a promotion at work and more love at home. Those are all lies. But it starts with the truth.
