New Survey Shows Liberals Live in Privileged Bubble, Segregated From Diversity and Opposing Thought

The study shows Democrats are isolated far away from reality.

Democrats are trapped in privileged bubbles, miles away from diversity and opposing thought, and that is how they develop their wildly off-base political perspectives, a recent study has shown.

The think-tank More in Common produced the study for its Hidden Tribes of America series by surveying over 2,000 partisan Republicans and Democrats to study their responses about what the other side thinks. This was done to measure the “perception gap” that has grown as politics have radicalized and polarized in recent years.

It found that Democrats, particularly ones who are college educated, are completely detached from Republicans with no understanding of their beliefs. Their complete and utter lack of perspective is what largely drives their leftist pathology, driving them to adopt negative attitudes about the white working class, for example.

“This effect,” the report says, “is so strong that Democrats without a high school diploma are three times more accurate than those with a postgraduate degree.”

The report also shows that educated Democrats who claim that “almost all my friends hold the same political views” are the ones who understand Republican viewpoints the least of all. While Democrats are the most out-of-touch with political reality, the survey also shows that neither side really understands the other.

For example, Democrats estimated that only half of Republicans believe that immigration can strengthen America as long as it is “properly controlled” while nearly 90 percent of Republicans believed that statement to be true in actuality.

Republicans also underestimated the patriotism of the Democrats. The study showed Republicans believe that only half of Democrats are still “proud to be American” while over 80 percent of Democrats responded that they are in fact still proud of their nation.

As polarization increases, the “perception gap” increases alongside of it, but the problem is markedly worse for gilded Democrats. This could have major political consequences, which can be seen as Democratic presidential contenders for 2020 offer extremist policies such as free health care for illegal immigrants to appeal to their out-of-touch base.

Certain Democrats, like those at the LA Progressive blog, are beginning to understand that their party is in peril unless Democrats venture outside of their little ideological bubbles in order to appeal to Americans and speak to them on issues that matter.

“When Martin Luther King marched from Selma to Montgomery, his fellow marchers included a priest, a nun, two rabbis, a Greek Orthodox archbishop and clergy of many Protestant denominations, black and white,” wrote sociology professor Arlie Hochschild, author of The Outsourced Self: Intimate Life in Market Times.

“In the long run, major political change virtually always requires rising up to cross a bridge – an urgently needed model for the Democratic party itself today,” she added.

Fairfield University Will Force Students to Take Mandatory COVID-19 Tests in Order to Attend Class

Published

Fairfield University has announced its plans to be operational for the fall semester amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, tossing the privacy rights of students completely to the wayside.

“As Fairfield University plans to Bring its Stags Home for the fall 2020 semester, a safe return to campus life is our most important priority. We want to make sure our community members have all the information they need to maintain the vibrancy of our campus life but do so as safely as possible,” Fairfield University wrote in an email to their student body.

The university plans to force students to report their health data and submit it into an invasive cell phone app, monitor themselves for any close contact with individuals who have the virus, wear masks at all times while attending class, and subject themselves to mandatory COVID-19 testing to be allowed on campus.

Journalist Alex Berenson noted Fairfield’s proposed plans in a Twitter post, highlighting the absurdity and apparent illegality of the scheme:

Berenson has drawn attention to how the COVID-19 pandemic is adversely impacting children, who are losing educational opportunities and having their rights systemically violated because of mass hysteria.

Big League Politics has reported on the growing mass exodus from public schools that has resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic:

A recent poll of over twenty one hundred voters is showing that the future of public schools could be in great jeopardy when communities and states come out of lockdowns across the nation.

A survey of 2,122 registered voters by RealClear Opinion Research shows that support for educational choice is very strong, and that a plurality of parents are more likely to pursue homeschooling opportunities after COVID-19 lockdowns end.

The polling results show that 40% of families are more likely to homeschool or virtual school after lockdowns, and that 64% support school choice.

John Schilling who serves as the president of the American Federation for Children had this to say about the stunning results of the survey:

“Every single family with kids in school has been incredibly disrupted by the lockdowns. With fifty five million students no longer in their normal educational setting, families are clearly considering new options and many are seeing the benefits of homeschooling and virtual schooling. This is the time for leadership and for desperately needed bold reforms to be implemented across our K-12 education system.”

Homeschooling may be the only way for parents to protect their children from the Big Brother “solutions” to the COVID-19 pandemic in the classroom.
