It makes sense that education levels amount to some sort of litmus tests for liberals. After all, universities are not so much institutions of higher learning as they are modern Marxist indoctrination camps. There for, the more time you spend there, the more intelligent you must be, right?
This is basically what the left is saying in this meme. The top caption reads “if you don’t think education matters, then you probably get your news from the dropouts”.
Sitting directly below is a picture of MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, with her bougie college credentials listed. Below that are portraits of conservative talk radio hosts Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck — all of whom dropped out of college to pursue their careers.
For everyone below the age of 30, it should be noted that college education was not always a hard requirement for a high-paying position. Even today, higher education credentials almost hurt prospective employees more than they help them.
Beyond this weird worship of the university, locations which have become known to violently resist alternative ideas, is a strange assumption that Maddow is less opinionated than her conservative colleagues. Not only does she work for the most openly left-wing cable news network ever, but her format is hardly out of place when compared to Sean Hannity.
Limbaugh, Hannity, and Beck are three of the most successful talk radio personalities in the history of broadcasting. Each of their programs is three hours long. Hannity and Beck also have their own television commitments outside of that. Maddow, by contrast trails in the ratings by a wide margin.
If you’re getting your news from a “dropout”, it probably means you’re paying attention to people who value hard work over spending a boatload of money just to be indoctrinated.
