It’s bad enough that global elites demand that everyone drive electric vehicles or effectively go by horse and buggy transportation while they jet all over the planet in ill-begotten private aircraft.
However, it’s really bad when the global elites demand an especially high level of absurd control over what people actually eat, especially when you know global elites are not exactly dining on chickpeas and rice.
Recently, the Committee to Unleash Prosperity released a frightening report: “Them vs. U.S.: The Two Americas and How the Nation’s Elite Is Out of Touch with Average Americans.” This report illustrates, in excruciating detail, how the viewpoints of the elites are “wildly out of touch with the American people.”
First off, who are these elites?
“The Elites are defined as those having a postgraduate degree, a household income of more than $150,000 annually, and living in a zip code with more than 10,000 people per square mile. Approximately 1% of the total U.S. population meets these criteria …
The study also examined a sub-sample of elites, adults who attended Ivy League schools or other elite private schools, including Northwestern, Duke, Stanford, and the University of Chicago. Roughly half of those we classify as ‘elites’ attended one of these schools. For the purpose of this study, we label those who attended one of these schools as ‘Ivy League Graduates,” the report noted.
Guessing the graduates of the Ivy League schools are the most ghastly of all, if the schools’ recent pro-terrorist stance was anything to go by.
Hint: It was as lot to go by.
That said, apparently 47 percent of these so-called elites believe that the United States provides “too much individual freedom” to its citizens.
That would explain the lockdowns during the COVID pandemic.
Lockdowns that the elites ignored.
In fact, Ms. Pelosi had a hair salon open so she could get whatever services done that she apparently must have done at all times.
Even more egregiously, California Governor Gavin Newsom demanded for all wineries to close … except his own. Communism, much? After all, that would be straight-up government ownership of the wine industry at that point.
Unsurprisingly, the most “anti-freedom” elites hail from Ivy League schools.
“When Americans are asked if there is too much or too little freedom, Elites are three times more likely to say that there is too much individual freedom in America than all Americans. Almost six out of ten of the graduates from Elite colleges think there is too much freedom,” the report added.
While that’s bad enough, what’s the most disturbing is the fact that these highly educated elites are also in the most favor of strict rationing of meat.
So, you know, the elites not only demand lockdowns, but they also demand to control what people eat while they are in lockdown.
Specifically, 77 percent of elites, and a staggering 89 percent of Ivy League graduates, are in favor of “strict rationing of gas, meat, and electricity” to combat allegedly manmade climate change.
“Perhaps not surprisingly, at a time when President Biden’s approval rating among voters was in the low 40s, his performance earned approval from 84% of the Elites,” the report added dryly.
And perhaps that is precisely why Biden remains the puppet of choice.
