The 2008 and 2012 presidential elections helped to prove what I’ve been saying for years which is that the majority of the American people are being dumbed down to the point that they are persuaded more by emotion than reason. A large part of that is due to the public school system which is more geared to socialist brainwashing than real teaching, including the ability to think and reason.
For this reason, I contend that the majority of Americans now suffer from veritaphobia and misology.
If you recall, I recently mentioned that the Democratic Convention proved that the Democratic Party is the party of haters and veritaphobes. Then I shared the following definition of veritaphobia:
“Fear of Truth”
Displaying hesitation or refusal to admit or recognize that something is true, or to accept the concept of truth itself. Usually born out of fear of offending someone or being held accountable to something constant.
Dismissal of the existance of absolutes.
Degradation of people who profess something as true or untrue.
Being willfully in denial. Gives rise to constant skepticism and doubt of everything.
That is the best description of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and the general platform of the Democratic Party. They are so afraid of the truth that they viciously attack it like a trained fighting pitbull.
It also seems to describe the majority of the American people who have been so brainwashed by their public education and the liberal media that they hate hearing the truth and would much rather settle for lies.
To this I add that the majority of the American people also suffer from misology – the hatred of reason or reasoning. Misology goes hand-in-hand with veritaphobia since the hatred of reasoning results in the hatred for the truth.
How else do you explain why so many Americans are protesting and reacting to many of the things Donald Trump has been saying?
Yes, illegal immigration is a huge economic, social and criminal problem but the dumbed down American people don’t want to hear it.
Yes, the immigration of thousands of Muslims has caused a great deal of problems and trouble for other countries and opens us up to increased chances of terrorism, but the majority of people hate hearing the truth and they hate it even more when you try to reason with them.
Yes, same-sex marriage and homosexuality are an abominable sin, that 50 years ago would not have been tolerated in America, but the majority of the American people now hate the truth and any reasoning with the truth so they accept the sinful lifestyle as part of normal America.
Yes, it’s people who kill people and not guns, but again, the majority of the American people have become such haters of the truth and any form of reasoning that they accept what they hear from the liberal media as their truth.
Yes, blacks commit far more violent acts against other blacks than whites or any other group, but the majority of Americans don’t want to hear the truth nor can you reason with them about the truth.
Many of today’s young adults and teens get most of their information and news through social media or from the liberal mainstream news outlets. They no longer seek the truth or are interested in any reasoning that goes against what they are hearing.
Consequently, just like in 2008 and 2012, the majority of the American people will go to the polls on November 8 and will elect Hillary Clinton to be the next president because she wears a skirt and because they hate hearing the truth about her and about America and they hate any and all forms of reasoning concerning the truth. Our dumbed down and brainwashed population will once again vote based on emotions and elect the person America deserves – Hillary Clinton, rather than for someone who has the courage to stand up and speak the truth about America’s problems.
Just like 2008 and 2012, the misology and veritaphobia of the American people will elect a habitual pathological liar who hates the US Constitution, the US military and the American people and especially hates hearing or speaking the truth about anything.
