Science Proves That Liberals Are Easily Led Astray


We’ve always known that conservatives stay true to enduring values, whereas liberals are led this way and that as they chase the pernicious intellectual fads pushed by the malignant puppeteers who run the progressive media and academic establishments. Now science confirms it:

In a new study, [University of Nebraska-Lincoln] researchers measured both liberals’ and conservatives’ reaction to “gaze cues” — a person’s tendency to shift attention in a direction consistent with another person’s eye movements, even if it’s irrelevant to their current task — and found big differences between the two groups.

Liberals responded strongly to the prompts, consistently moving their attention in the direction suggested to them by a face on a computer screen. Conservatives, on the other hand, did not.

Why? Researchers suggested that conservatives’ value on personal autonomy might make them less likely to be influenced by others, and therefore less responsive to the visual prompts.

This would explain why leftist politicians are able to distract liberal sheep from reality by shouting meaningless shibboleths related to racism and class warfare, whereas conservatives remain focused on the real problem of our morbidly expanding government crushing the economy and our way of life.
