You might think because there are a lot of smart people on the ‘right’, that their version of the truth is just as legitimate. But that’s poppycock. Plenty of smart people are ignorant, this is because for them the truth doesn’t come first. Their personal and tribal narratives do. They contort all their information around their narratives of the world. Just because you’re a clever clogs does not make you more true or honest. These smart idiots are good at creating clever and intelligent sounding but ultimately false narratives that all the people who don’t really think for themselves can get behind. The right are for the most part wrong, but they also have big muscles and are funded by deep self-serving pockets. So in summation, we’re all fucked.
