Choosing clichés over ideas.
“It’s frustrating to hear this president speak [about the coronavirus]. He should stop talking. Let the experts speak.” – Joe Biden, March 24.
“The truth is, from this moment on, Americans must ignore lies and start to listen to scientists and other respected professionals in order to protect ourselves and our loved ones.” – Nancy Pelosi, April 14.
Regarding COVID-19, the president should “follow the scientists,” and not just say “whatever suits his ego at the moment.” – Chuck Schumer, May 18
Whenever they can’t think of anything else to say in defense of the indefensible (their shutdown fascism), this is the Democrats fallback position: Forget self-serving politicians like the president. Listen to those wise, heroic, selfless and all-knowing scientists.
And a man in a lab coat shall lead them.
Democrats wrap themselves in the mantle of science and cast the rest of us as yokels.
They’re the smart ones; we’re stupid. They care; we’re self-serving. They’re Galileo defending the theory that the sun does not revolve around the earth. We’re the medieval Church persecuting him. They believe in science, reason, technology and human progress. We’re charter members of the Flat Earth Society.
Saying listen to the scientists on disease control is like saying: Listen to the economists on taxes and spending (which ones – free market or Keynesian?). Listen to the trial lawyers on tort reform. Listen to the so-called civil rights leaders (like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton) on race relations. And the lessons of history can only be learned from historians — liberals like Doris Kearns Goodwin.
Why even have elections? On any pressing concern, just find a group of certified experts whose advice we can follow.
