According to a new poll, recently
released, nearly 90 percent of Ivy League grads
support the “strict” rationing of gas, meat and electricity to fight climate
change. 90%! “Strict rationing!”
The poll, conducted by the Committee to Unleash Prosperity and
titled “Them vs. U.S.: The two Americas and how the nation’s elite is out of
touch with average Americans,” was intended to assess the beliefs of “elites.” According
to the College Fix, the poll was comprised of two surveys of 1,000 folks each
conducted in late 2023, and elites were defined as “people having at least one
post-graduate degree, earning at least $150,000 annually, and living in
high-population density areas.”
The Committee to Unleash Prosperity (CUP) found that, “An
astonishing 77% of the Elites –
including almost 90% of the Elites who graduated from the top universities –
favor rationing of energy, gas, and meat to combat climate change.” This is starkly at odds with the will of all Americans, 63% of
whom oppose this policy. It is shameful and embarrassing that so many “elite” Americans
have drunk the Kool-Aid-- and bent the knee at the altar of progressivism.
These are folks that would be more at home attending the World Economic Forum
in Davos than a country music concert in Des Moines. And would then fly back to
the U.S. to snob the rest of us and bitch about the carbon footprints of
lawnmowers and farmers.
Incredibly, CUP also
found that nearly six in
10 “elites” say there is too much individual freedom in America. Are
these so-called elites talking about the freedom to attend preposterously
expensive indoctrination centers-- mostly courtesy of dad, mom, and taxpayers--
so that, upon graduation, they can spew anti-American inanities into the ether?
Or are they talking about the freedom to proclaim oneself a member of the
opposite sex? Perhaps they are Speaking of the freedom to end the nascent life
in one’s womb for one’s personal convenience?
Doubtful. It is much more likely they
are speaking of the freedom to disagree with them, freely assemble, and
defend one’s self and one’s family. These are the freedoms which citizens have
historically had in the United States, and which they believe others
should no longer possess. This makes them budding totalitarians. And asshats of
the first order.
Strict rationing of gasoline, meat, and
electricity? Fewer individual freedoms? Okay, let’s start with them—the
elites-- and see how it goes. If they swear off gasoline, meat and
electricity—and their personal freedoms—and actually follow through with it, at
least they wouldn’t be the monstrous hypocrites they have nearly always been
proven to be.
But they would still be intolerant,
ignorant, and un-American.
While we’re waiting to see if the
elites volunteer to sacrifice their freedoms first, the rest of us can take
our SUVs to the local butcher shop to get burgers and steaks to cook on our electric
(or gas) stoves.
