Energy Secretary Steven Chu: The American Public Is Like Teenagers Who Need To Be Taught How To Act

One of the most irritating traits of liberals is their paternalistic, we’re smarter than everyone else because we’re Lefties shtick. I don’t care if you’re talking about cousin Cletus the hog farmer, who quit school in third grade and has an IQ that’s barely in the high double digits, if he’s a liberal he thinks that means he’s smarter than everyone else.

That’s why the government has to tell you what to do — because you’re too stupid to understand liberalism. That’s why liberals are indifferent towards freedom — because it gives people the freedom to disagree with liberals and obviously that’s crazy. That’s why liberals are so desperate to indoctrinate your children with their Heather has two Mommies, God is dead, we’ve got to live like the Flintstones to save the planet propaganda.

There’s no respect for tradition. There’s no respect for the markets. There’s no respect for the wisdom of crowds. There’s no respect for God. There’s no respect for their fellow Americans. They’re smart and their ideas work better than anything else, no matter how much contrary evidence piles up, because they’re liberals.

The latest example of that attitude? Energy Secretary Steven Chu. From the Wall Street Journal:

When it comes to greenhouse-gas emissions, Energy Secretary Steven Chu sees Americans as unruly teenagers and the Administration as the parent that will have to teach them a few lessons.

Speaking on the sidelines of a smart grid conference in Washington, Dr. Chu said he didn’t think average folks had the know-how or will to change their behavior enough to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions.

“The American public…just like your teenage kids, aren’t acting in a way that they should act,” Dr. Chu said. “The American public has to really understand in their core how important this issue is.” (In that case, the Energy Department has a few renegade teens of its own.)

The administration aims to teach them–literally. The Environmental Protection Agency is focusing on real children. Partnering with the Parent Teacher Organization, the agency earlier this month launched a cross-country tour of 6,000 schools to teach students about climate change and energy efficiency.

Now many of you probably thought the government is supposed to work FOR YOU and for the country. But, that’s the wrong way to look at it. Actually, we’re all teenagers and Daddy government is going to set us all down and explain how we should act. Thank you Daddy government, thank you! Without your explaining to all of us how to live our lives, how would we ever get by?
