Condescending Maloney: The Democrat Party is ‘Too Smart’ for the American People

Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY)

It made a lot of news when the head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee told the New York Times editorial board recently that his party has a “likeability problem.”

Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) isn’t Einstein to realize that but it made headlines because it’s rare for a Democrat to be honest about the pathetic state of their party. The real story wasn’t that Maloney was being critical or insightful about what was happening, because he’s not. This matters because as Maloney was critiquing the party for style and some substance issues, he unknowingly illustrated one major reason why the Democrats are so unliked—and it’s something none of them can or will admit—their policies are a disaster because the party does not like or respect their own base or the American people as a whole.

When speaking to the Times Maloney is quoted as saying, “I think that most of the voters… think we are out of touch, they think we are elitist, we think we are better than they are. And they don’t like it. We have a likability problem.” On this he is correct, but it doesn’t occur to him that the voters are right. He offers this up as though it’s a mistaken impression which, ironically, confirms all of his assertions about the voter’s opinions.

For Maloney, this failure of intellect among the voting class can be cured with a patronizing change in style. He notes in the interview that Democrats “could talk more like human beings, we could build a relationship with voters.” Moreover, they “could be more comfortable on the factory floor, or at least as comfortable on the factory floor as we are in the faculty lounge” implying that empathy and interest should be feigned since it’s been naturally absent.

How does one feel comfortable with the normals? Training? Acting lessons? He described one style problem of using certain words that are not embraced by the average person, like “rubric,” or “Latinx,” or “cisgender,” a favorite of the woke crowd. He also noted how putting pronouns on email signatures was also irritating to people. All of that is well and good, and he’s right about the repulsion most Americans feel when being lectured at by smug far-left wokesters using words meant to push an agenda that Americans are rejecting en masse.

But as Maloney was contemplating all the ways the Democrats can shake their own constituency and other Americans out of their prison of ignorance his own words exposed one of the primary reasons Democrats are not liked—they view the average person with a patronizing contempt. When asked by the Times why the Democrats were so “out of sync” he mused, “…[Y]ou’ll find broad agreement in our caucus, from the conservative Democrats to the most progressive, that we have a likability problem. My answer to that is that we move really fast, and we are really passionate about the solutions we want to bring. And we sometimes don’t give people enough time to understand what we’re doing and to bring them along.”

So there you have it. If people were only smarter, sharper and more cosmopolitan, they would understand what the Democrats are doing and love them for it. Yes, that’s the ticket. The Democrats are too fast and too clever for lesser humans to grasp their plans. They must be helped, they must be led. Because the Democrats are sure that if people were smart enough to understand what the Democrats are doing and that it’s for their own good, their frustration and rejection would disappear, just like Hunter Biden’s last bit of crack cocaine.

This narcissistic blindness keeps the Democrats isolated from real people and real life. This contempt of people who don’t use hair gel or have letters after their name and maybe even have dirt under their fingernails keeps Democrats in their disastrous woke bubble threatening the political and cultural foundations of our nation.

This will be a shock to the Democrat establishment, but the American people understand completely that it is deliberate Democrat policies destroying this nation and our future. We can also conclude their refusal to change their policies and attitudes, despite the damage they cause, can only be explained because they simply have more of a commitment to a dead and failed political theory and to their own power and money, than they have to the American people.

As Maloney waxed on about the stylistic problems of the Democrats he never admits the fact that their atrocious policies are destroying American lives and the security of this nation. That alone would lead people to an unfavorable opinion of your character and intentions.

It is likely he doesn’t think about their policy choices because he, like the Democratic leadership in general, genuinely does not believe that the American people understand the world around us, but we do. We feel their failures every day. We know what it is they’re trying to do, and we do not want it. It’s not because we’re too dumb to understand, it’s because we understand completely, we love the country, and we want and know we deserve a future for our children that is better than the present.

We also know the Democrats are not going to see the light. But we already have.

I can always tell the way a political poll is slanted when they ask about how much college education I have. Do they ask about vocational schools or DD-214? Almost never, so they are being condescending from even the polling stand point. I feel my 25 years in the service is at least equal to their ‘4 year degree’.

Bravo! You said it right! The democrats are just in there to get more money and put the normal people in this country worse off than ever before in my lifetime! Thank you for exposing them!

the democrats are not smarter than some of their constituents, but they are smarter than most of their constituents, because if their constituents were smarter they would not vote for the lying treasonous bastard democrat politicians, that are deliberately and maliciously destroying our country, by looting our treasury just so the programs they fund will launder money back to the democrat politicians!

But the problem is that most Republicans are in the same sinking boat. The gop politicians are just as crooked, just as elite as the democrats, sorry marxists.

For all of you folks out there proclaiming that “God is in charge”, I think you better reconsider that thought. I think a better plan would be “God helps those that help themselves. “

All the pollution in NY sure went to his head.
Must be rough living in FANTASY WORLD.
Maloney, lay down before you hurt yourself.
Besides Maloney, a fart in a dust storm has a Higher I.Q. than you and the Democrats combined.

As an earlier reader said, too many Republican politicians have the same elitist attitude as this Democrat from NY. Many Republican Senators and House Members didn’t support Trump and didn’t connect with his massive group of followers at ralleys because Trump fans are redneck rural bumpkins. Aĺl 75 million of them, including me. I grew up in Seattle as a Democrat. Now I live in Idaho and am a Republican. Election maps of the US always show red areas of Democratic influence in big cities while the blue areas of Republican influence are in the country. Here in the Pacific NW, Seattle, Portland and Boise are red areas full of liberals while the balance of Washington State, Oregon and Idaho are blue areas full of conservatives. Minnesota is no different. The square miles of blue conservative counties in the north-west corner of the US is massive vs. the three liberal red hubs where the urban, woke, hip, purple haired live. The Republican party problem is there are too many POLITICIANS who look down on rural people just like this ‘fast acting’ Democrat from NY and cannot relate to more than half of America. Mitch McConnell, Liz Cheney, Lisa Murkowski, and the very wealthy Mit Romney are all from States that are more rural than urban but these politicians support liberal causes. We call these Republican politicians ‘Rhinos’ but the truth is they are elitists, not rhinos, who don’t represent their States well. Hopefully the people of Wyoming have started a trend that will continue across America. As an American I hope we can all grow together again to focus on making America the proud leader of the world (again), but if this social splitting continues into a cival war, trust the country bumpkins in the blue areas own more guns, have bigger sticks, own bigger trucks and better fighting skills and… are getting more pissed off daily than the city wokesters focused on what gender they currently are.

I believe you have your colors mixed up. Red states are Republican influenced, and blue states are Democrat. I always look at it this way. Blue is the color of oxygen deprived blood, and red blood is oxygen rich. So taking that analogy, red states are thriving under good conservative decisions while blue states are be choked of all sensibility and liberty.

DIMMs are “wise in their own eyes” which doesn’t speak well for them. They are ignorant of history (they support Marxism which is deadly); they are ignorant of science (there are 53 genders, man causes climate change, men came from amoebas), and they are ignorant or hateful of God!

Democrat politicians want control of our lives because they have betrayed their fathers and grandfathers who fought against the people they are emulating, Communists and Nazi’s.

Democrats and Republicans In Name Only do not represent the American people, they represent themselves and their desire to totally control our lives.

Circumstances occurring around the globe, and obviously right here in the United States, are quickening and truly revealing what dark entity is overshadowing mankind. The evil that is occurring and being embraced is a sure sign of things to come. Repent and get on the right side of the equation, or be sorry for eternity.

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” ― Marcus Tullius Cicero
