Sorry bud ... that's just not true. Racism is found on both the right and the left. It has no boundries.
Political leanings, creed, gender, race ... doesn't matter.
For one political group to say that the other is more racist .... poppycock.

One example - Very left leaning black liberation theology 'churches'


1. Commitment to God
2. Commitment to the Black Community
3. Commitment to the Black Family
4. Dedication to the Pursuit of Education
5. Dedication to the Pursuit of Excellence
6. Adherence to the Black Work Ethic
7. Commitment to Self-Discipline and Self-Respect
8. Disavowal of the Pursuit of "Middleclassness"
9. Pledge to make the fruits of all developing and acquired skills available to the Black Community
10. Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for Strengthening and Supporting Black Institutions
11. Pledge allegiance to all Black leadership who espouse and embrace the Black Value System
12. Personal commitment to embracement of the Black Value System


I double dog dare ya to try to find any right wingers in this 'church'.
It's all very left wing ... and it's all very anti-white. Bigots and racists.

You call black elitism left-wing?
Sorry but, anything that as to do with elitism or helping a particular group above another, is way more right-wing.

Color elitism is also racism to an extent.

obviously a left wing jab and professor as most professors are, not all but most. I am a conservative, not a racist with a 140 IQ. Never thought of my self as a genius but I do not think I am an idiot. I have no doubt that those who propagated this so called study would have a complete opposite finding of me, a conservative.

Makes me wonder who the real hat mongers and racist are?

'Studies' show liberals have lower self-esteem and are less happy.


Yes we are, because we see how right wingers treat the world around them, treat other unequally.

It's easier to be happy with conservative ideas. You just have to think for yourself, be selfish and think that everything around you is going just right...ever tough millions are suffering from scarcity.

Liberals having low self esteem, that it's hard to say.
One thing that boosts my esteem although, at least I'm not a conservative.

you guys will buy -anything- won't you...

divide and conquer tactics yet again, scientist says [topic], correlates a negative topic to a political ideology.

I guess that means anyone remotely under this umbrela term is 'dumb' then right? in my scientific opinion the only dumb thing about this is that someone spent time and cash on this topic -_- hurry up with those fusion generators rite? instead we get, this...

I do not thing conservative/liberal has much to do with IQ.

It has to do with values...

Although from personal experience, almost all conservatives I know we're pretty much oblivious to the world around them if it doesn't concern exactly themselves. Short minded and rarely thinks thorough about others.

Being liberal is a curse of wanting everyone to be happy and being conservative is bliss trough ignorance.

It's easy to understand right-wings, it always has to do with individualism, greed and (selfish) liberty.
Although It's pretty much impossible to understand a left-wing for a right-wing, because they are not used to thinking about the people around them and how to make you AND them happy.

Right-wing thinking have it easy and they argue between each other much less, since individualism is much simpler then trying to think for everyone at the same time.

Failed science usually starts with trying to prove a pre-conceived notion.

Recent examples:

Global Warming
Conservatives are dumb and racist.

Just saying, they are not ultra left-wing because of their race elitism.
Not they won't vote republican and it's not only because of their ideas, it's because republican are known to be more racist then democrats.

Yes, many different types of intelligence, whether it be mechanical, spatial, analytical, creative, etc.

I think perhaps too, even the ability to play well with others.

Racism and all of it's attached isms seems to me, as has been pointed out by many other posts here, to cross most all boundries.

Next time you call group of right-wing racists a bunch of idiots, you can back yourself up with one simple word: Science! Researchers from Ontario, Canada’s Brock University have been slaving over test results to come to the conclusion that many not-so-scientifically-inclined have said for ages — both right-wing thinkers and racists alike are kind of dumb. The conclusion comes after spotting a correlation between children with low IQs and their ideologies later in life. It turns out that those with limited intelligence at a younger age are more likely to exhibit racist tendencies and favor more conservative political thinking as adults. Dr. Gordon Hodson, a professor of psychology and primary author of the findings, explains to Live Science that the, well, science of the issue is rather simple.

Well it doesn't take a genius to figure out that these kinds of people are a huge danger to modern society. I mean hate and fear for other people is something that should have been gotten rid of a long time ago.


This just in! Those with limited intelligence at a younger age are more likely to exhibit racist tendencies, favor more conservative political thinking as adults, and enjoy eating ice cream!.

The next time you suspect someone of being dumb, if they like ice cream you are probably right!

/sarcasm

Junk science at best, this is a joke.

Just to make sure I got it... A university in a left wing socialist country has concluded that people who would rather have small government are dumb. OK.. got it. You know, the term conservative means something different in Canada, or Australia, or England than it does here in America. Even if they are speaking to American conservatism, the fact that they, being the socialists that they are, are incapable of understanding the concept of natural law and God given liberty taking precedence over man created law, completely nullifies their results, because they are not intellectually qualified to conduct it. Just the fact that this study automatically groups racists and conservatives together as if they are one in the same is proof that the study was rigged from the start. Proof that YOU are an idiot lies in the fact that you are attempting to apply a Canadian study about the Canadian political spectrum to the American political spectrum. Canadian politics mirrors that of Europe with a few differences. American and European politics are both judged via a "left vs. right" paradigm, however the end result on both ends of the spectrum are different. In Canada/Europe the extreme ends of both sides ends in totalitarianism. On the left you have complete communism, and on the right you have complete fascism. In other words, you have Stalin and Hitler. Do you know what the difference is between a communist and a national socialist? Do you know why they hate each other, even though they advocate for almost identical philosophies? You probably don't... although my guess is that your pseudo-intellectual self would think that you do know. The fact is that American Progressivism aka Liberalism aka "Democracy" has provided far more racism to American history and culture than Republicans or conservatives ever have. Besides... a REAL conservative, not some fake ass neo-con like Romney, McCain, et al... is not capable of racism, because racism infringes upon individual freedom and liberty, and natural laws and rights, so for a true conservative to be racist is a paradox. You are clearly just attempting to troll, and I have justified your thread and your pathetic existence long enough.

I might be mistaken but I can't see anything here on the level of extreme right wing groups that go out actively seeking to beat up or murder non-whites.
In Europe we don't have those types of organisations, because radical leftists as I said before focus more on class. For the right wing things like ethnicity and race are vital factors.

think about what guys at nasa had to do back in their day to get a man on the moon then fast forward to today and look at the current nasa dudes in their inability to get us there again. i definitely agree with you MikeBoss and if i had to blame something it would definitely be technology and the fact that we let it do most if not all of our thinking.

I don't believe that MOST people dislike others because of the color of their skin, and dumb comes in all colors.

But I hesitate to call another dumb, what is intelligence and how do you measure it?

This study was obviously done to create hatred, and division, and only those who already hate or are willing to will believe it.

This study is a down right lie,

A thought just occured to me.


I've been at certain facilities in the past that housed individuals with lower mental accuity. People of every stripe were housed there.
And yet, very little issue has ever come up regarding race.

Racism is an associative thought process.

When a person sees another person of a different race, the thought process is rather complex in that it has to reason and justify their hatred.

People of lower IQ's simply don't have that ability.

Maybe, just maybe, the smarter you are, the more propencity you have to become racist.

People spending more than 20 years in schools so they could call themselves scientists, then the best they can do is sorting people out in all kind of stereotypes, putting them in little boxes and applying them all kind of labels, those people are dumb. Just another form of racism.... "the whites are superior...the conservatives are dumb..."
People who need a "scientific" research to tell them what to think are dumb. But it's ok, we are already told what to wear, what to eat, what to want, what to believe in, what to live and die for. It's all good in this Brave New World....
