In the face of opposition to their radical agenda, President Obama and his administration have made statements to the effect of, We haven’t done a good enough job explaining our policies to the American people. These comments reflect a profound arrogance which assumes that the only reason a rational person would oppose a leftist idea is because they do not understand it. Egregious as that attitude may be, it at least supposes that Americans are capable of understanding proposals which are properly explained.

Left-wing zealot Bill Maher doesn’t give us that much credit. On Friday’s Real Time, he took the elitist sentiment further.

“America is like a dog,” Maher began, explaining “It cannot understand actual words. It understands inflection, it understands fear, but you can’t actually explain issues to a dog.”

Liberal hero/bogeyman Michael Moore gamely jumped to America’s defense, but oddly continued the dog metaphor anyway. “When a dog has been abused, it gets all insane, and does insane things,” Moore said. See? We’re not just dogs, we’re insane dogs.

This crude metaphor shouldn’t surprise anyone, as it accurately reflects Maher’s regard for his fellow Americans. During the debate leading up to the passage of Obamacare, Maher suggested that the president act as a dictator and impose his will upon we dull-witted masses.

… I don’t think [Obama] has been tough enough…

They’re talking about 60 votes – Forget this stuff. You can’t get Americans to agree on anything… 60% of people don’t believe in evolution in this country.

[Obama] just needs to drag them to it. Like I just said [the American people] are stupid. Just drag them to this, get healthcare done, you know, with or without them. Make the gang of six an offer they can’t refuse. This Max Baucus guy, he needs to wake up tomorrow with an intern’s head in his bed… I’m serious.

Maher is serious. The only reason Moore comes off more reserved is because he has a slightly better sense of how openly these opinions should be discussed.

This is the philosophy of tyranny. It is apropos that Maher cite belief in evolution as a point of contention among Americans, because his tyrannical prescription is a natural outgrowth of the evolutionary paradigm. When you believe that humanity is emergent, a product of an ongoing process of natural selection, it follows that some humans are further developed than others. It is then incumbent upon those fittest, the Mahers and Moores and Obamas of the world, to drag we lessers kicking and screaming into the future.
