I just saw a headline that read “Scholars rank Trump as worst President, rank Obama in Top 10.” Such a statement goes to show how the media are desperate to turn the minds of the electorate away from Trump. There are a number of things wrong with the statement, most of them dealing with what the media are NOT telling you. They are not telling who these “scholars” are. So, I will tell you. It is commonly known that a majority of college professors, the “scholars,” are liberal/progressives. They are the same liberal college professors who are creating a generation of “snowflakes” by telling their malleable students that they need “safe spaces” to protect them from conservative ideas. They are telling their students that it is okay to shout down and shut down conservative speakers who come to their universities. They are telling their students that freedom of speech is for liberal progressives but not conservatives. They are telling their students that violence against conservatives is okay because it serves the cause. Because the majority of the “scholars” are liberals/progressives, when the media poll “scholars” the majority responding to the poll will be liberal/progressive. We already know liberals/progressives are vehemently against Trump.
By stating that “scholars” rank Trump as worst, the media are trying to convince you that Trump must be worst because these “scholars” are the intelligentsia, the intelligent elite who are the smart ones who know such things. The problem is that these “scholars” are only knowledgeable in their academic fields, and their knowledge is limited to what they have read. These “scholars” have spent their entire lives either going to school or teaching in a classroom. They have no real world experience in the other world of work or business. Just because they are “scholars” does not make them smarter than you. In many ways, they are as dumb as stumps.
I am among those that are called “scholars.” But, I am in the minority because I am a conservative. The difference between me and my liberal colleagues is that I know what it is like to serve my country in the military. I know what it is like to run a business and meet a payroll. I know what it is like to hold a position in senior management in a large organization. I know what it is like to be on the verge of bankruptcy and come back to solvency. I teach, not just from books, but from experience. I have lived through 12 Presidents, and I am one “Scholar” who ranks Trump one of the best Presidents and ranks Obama among the bottom three, if not the worst.
