Revealing Politics looks for supporters at Obama rally who know about Benghazi attack

Revealing Politics went behind enemy lines to see just how informed Obama supporters at an Obama rally were about the Benghazi attacks and the assassination of our Ambassador. You won’t be surprised with the result (h/t: HotAir):

  1. It might be safe to conclude if a person knows zero about world affairs, they’ll vote for Zero in November!!!

  2. Wow, good thing we have obamacare cause treating senility in such a young population is going to be really costly. I wounder if there isn’t some type of prevention that could be utilized to prevent this kind of mental decline, like some sort of liberal education condom or something.

    You know at 18 years old I was not exactly a brain surgeon, but was smart enough to know Mr. Reagan was on the right track.

  3. And sane, reasonable people wonder why the Obama campaign continues to hammer on the birth control/abortion issue?—because it’s working! I applaud Revealing Politics for bringing this mass ignorance to light. And no offense to informed young people, but this video makes me wish that the minimum voting age were at least 25. Of course, several of these idiots were well over 25 years of age.

  4. I’m from the county just above Athens where Ohio University is located. Trust me, this part of the state is conservative. This is coal country too, so even more likely to be for Romney this time around. Athens County will probably still be the one blot of BLUE in all of SE Ohio but that is only because of the outsiders and the liberals around this university. The locals in the hills are mostly for Romney. Ohio goes to Romney if rural parts of the state show up!

  5. Just proves the dumbing down of our education system. When I was in college, if something like this had happened my professors would have been using it in his lecture the same or next day. A teachable moment!

    I sure hope the guy asking questions, SCHOOLED them on the situation in Benghazi. Even my 14 year old could have answered the guys questions, but we homeschool so I guess there is really no comparisson. ;o) HA!

  6. The worst part is that their parents won’t see this……
    If any of you know someone that has a kid at Ohio University…send them a link to this site..

  7. My timeline of political interest:
    Highschool: zero
    College: just a little
    25+ : alot more
    30+ : much, much more
    40+ : very closely, weekly, 500% more
    50+ : daily, sometimes hourly
    As sad as it to me to see how utterly clueless these young people are today with the instant access to media, I was them years ago. What was “I” thinking?

    1. Landscaper, you’re not alone. I had 3 children in 4 years and completely lost a decade of my life during those busy years when I had babies and young children of varying ages to take care of. Politics was the last thing on my mind — I had no time to read a newspaper and was too tired at night to stay up for the news. And I wasn’t much into politics in my teens and 20’s either.

      BUT, we did not have news at our fingertips the way we do now. There is almost no excuse for it these days. What person in their 20’s isn’t carrying around a smart phone? I don’t understand how a person could not know about the Benghazi attack — maybe not the specifics, but at least HEAR of it, you know?

  8. I think it was WordsFailMe on another thread (someone correct me if I’m wrong) who posted a link to moonbattery about James Carville, which is very revealing and explains the stupid sheeple in this video perfectly”

    “James Carville Explains Why He Is a Democrat

    Despite his rabid pit bull demeanor, James Carville always seemed to have too sharp a mind to be a Democrat. The mystery is resolved, if this quote from ThinkExist.com is legit:

    “Ideologies aren’t all that important. What’s important is psychology.

    “The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay out enough silage and they come running. That’s why I became an operative working with Democrats. With Democrats all you have to do is make a lot of noise, lay out the hay, and be ready to use the ole cattle prod in case a few want to bolt the herd.

    “Eighty percent of the people who call themselves Democrats don’t have a clue as to political reality.

    “What amazes me is that you could take a group of people who are hard workers and convince them that they should support social programs that were the exact opposite of their own personal convictions. Put a little fear here and there and you can get people to vote any way you want.

    “The voter is basically dumb and lazy. The reason I became a Democratic operative instead of a Republican was because there were more Democrats that didn’t have a clue than there were Republicans.

    “Truth is relative. Truth is what you can make the voter believe is the truth. If you’re smart enough, truth is what you make the voter think it is. That’s why I’m a Democrat. I can make the Democratic voters think whatever I want them to.”…”

    http://moonbattery.com/?p=19239

  9. “…I think really the Republicans did it.” (followed by a laugh).

    “…he didn’t care, he just brushed it off his shoulders. That’s leadership right there.”

    He’s right….Obama didn’t care!

    We need to pass some new laws. Competence, awareness, and comprehension should be manditory or you don’t get to vote. This is beyond freaking pathetic. We have people all excited to vote on ignorance and are blindly voting for self destruction. Implosion is more like it.

    Maybe I’m getting bitter as I get older, but this just makes me sicker and sicker to watch every day.

    1. They ought to require the same standard of testing that we should have for those who are wanting to be elected. Be able to recite the Preamble of the Constitution and Declaration and be able to name the 5 freedoms given in the 1st Amendment, and at least one example of a founding father’s reason for the 2nd Amendment.

        1. lol. And why not word for word? We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal…..
          We the people, in order to form a more perfect Union…
          Congress shall make no law….

          😀

          1. Lol, can you recite word for word the entire Constitution? I think it would sufficient to show that you can understand it and what this country was founded on. We can’t make it so that 95% of the people wouldn’t get to vote. Start forcing schools to teach the Constitution…every year of your (school) life.

  10. Clueless obama supporters….the future of America. I imagine when they have endured some grief, hardship, unfairness, injustice, lost a job, their home, a marriage, death in the family, most will have a different outlook.

    1. Think of Woodstock. I don’t think this is anything new (as I know you’re aware of). As normal, though, the more intelligent people protect these idiots from themselves. The new problem is how many of these morons there are.

      I think many will have a different outlook just by growing up and experiencing life. Most people are not ready to cast an intelligent vote at 18 years old, not after going through our propagandized schools.

      1. I completely agree. I believe that the voting age should be moved to 25. You need to have at least been out in the public for a while and seeing whats going on and understanding stuff before you are allowed to cast a vote. Obviously there will still be morons but I think a lot of the “he’s cool” vote would end. At 18, fresh out of high school, what do you know about anything??? Nothing!!

        1. Exactly, and most of them won’t vote anyway. However, in odd cases like Obama, they wanted to take part in electing the first black President….even though they knew nothing about him. THere might be some that show up to vote for Obama again, but I think the fascination part is over and their turnout will be low again.

  11. These are the girls who luuurve Obama because of his ‘dreamy eyes’; these are the people who think a Presidential election should be run like voting for American Idol.

    But the worst is – these are the people who are all our futures.
    I think their teachers, lecturers, professors, should face criminal charges for failing to do their job.

  12. My God what a bunch of complete morons.
    I didn’t know that clueless and stupid could be a lifestyle choice.

  13. I have to say I was surprised. I expected a lot of media regurgitation about a YouTube video, but to not even know? Wow. Just wow.

    1. Honestly, you shouldn’t be surprised.

      A large percentage of the colleges and universities in the USA today are liberal brain washing camps. I would say that probably 85% to 95% of the professors who teach these kids are liberal democrats. Of course they’re not going to talk about the screw ups by government. Why? Because they believe that government action can, should, and will solve all the problems of a society, an economy, and even cultural problems of other countries. Their profs preach this to these brain dead kids who’ve come from other government run schools that also preach conformance, obedience, and respect for their power and authority.

      I would also go so far as to say that most of these kids get their news (if any at all) from NPR, Jon Stewart, Steven Colbert, and Bill Maher (maybe even Saturday Night Live) so of course they’re mis-informed.

      Government doesn’t want a well educated, well informed, and politically active citizenry. What it wants is calm, docile, servants that praise them (hence this rally for Obama), and keep that belief in government going.

  14. Clear reason why progressives even have a chance. Dumbing down America…45 goals by progressives to destroy America…The Naked Communist…

  15. Biteme: “Yuka, yuka, yuka, Hehehehehe,hehaw hehaw, yuk yuk yuk”

    Ryan: “STFU you dumbass. Pay attention and you might just learn something.”

  16. My oldest is a Sophomore in college. He gets very frustrated around his peers. Might have something to do with serving his country for 4 years and fighting on foreign soil. He knows all this stuff and much more. I don’t know how he gets through an average day on campus.

    1. Tell your son thank you and God Bless and it’s hard work to remain above the Fray but it pays off in the end…

      1. Thank you. He is on the fast track with class loads. One semester then a Junior I believe. Maintaining a 3.5 in business management.

    2. That’s how I felt and my college was pretty conservative, it being a primarily engineering school…I did have one conservative close friend and the friends in my faith groups “got it.” So glad I am not on campus during this election (I graduated in the spring).

    3. Yes – some of my kids are the same way. I never got bent when mine decided to either work or go the military route first. It would have been a complete waste for any of them to go directly to a university or 4-yr college. They now know exactly what they want and are willing to work their butts off for it. For one of them, it doesn’t include a 4yr degree and I’m A-okay with it.

      1. We have four, all on {their own} path. The most straight and focused one now is also the ONLY I had to get out of jail at 3am when he was 17(drinking)…… then became a Marine. Go figure.

        1. 🙂 I have had a couple rough & rowdy ones myself – sometimes that crazyness can be channeled into something great. If you had told me a few years ago that my oldest daughter would be well on her way to an MD with a 4.0 GPA, I’d have laughed myself silly. The Army & a deployment (or two…) helped cement all those years of butt kicking we had to do. It’s interesting (yet hair raising!!) to see them follow their own paths.

  17. (insert Valley Girl voice) “Like, we’re for Obama, because, um, he’s like, so smart, and um, he’s really doing a good job, and um, he’s ah… cool, (insert girly giggle).”

    Sorry, but some people shouldn’t be allowed to vote. If they can’t take the time to learn about the key isues affecting this country, then they shouldn’t vote.

    I know when I was that age, I didn’t follow politics much… at least not until Reagan took office. But in this day and age when they are directly impacted with their vote and actions, they have a vested interest in knowing what a monster Obama is. Idiots.

  18. I’m not taking my Lord’s Name in vane here, but OH I can’t stand this!!!
    This makes me physically sick!! Simple ignorance, like not knowing where a small town from another state is ok, but for people to not be aware of such news is unbelievably… I don’t even have a word for it! That’s not ignorance, that is uneducated, witless, grossly negligent and an absolute freaking disgrace!!!
    Those ones who laughed?!! That idiot who blamed it on republicans?! This is what is KILLING OUR COUNTRY! These idiots in their own little greedy gimme gimme worlds are destroying our nation, and the freaking marxists are cheering for their complete stupidity!!!

    “If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

    Samuel Adams

    “… God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty…. And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.”

    Thomas Jefferson

    “If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”

    Samuel Adams

    “Every step we take towards making the State our Caretaker of our lives, by that much we move toward making the State our Master.”

    Dwight D. Eisenhower

    1. You pretty much described the democrat voting base of everybody under 30. The democrats, and particularly Obama, prey on ignorance. It’s what they rely on every election cycle. When people are displaying “I heart Obamacare” bumper stickers, you know they are ignorant dolts. Nobody has been able to tell me one, single aspect of Obamacare that is going to improve healthcare; nobody.

      They support it because it’s a liberal cause and no other reason. I work in healthcare and I can tell you from experience, it’s a monstrosity that is going to cost billions, does nothing for improving access to healthcare and will seriously degrade the level of coverage the working class now have through their employer. The really sad part is, it will hurt the average, middle-class, employed individual more than anybody else. If you have a job with employer-subsidized insurance, YOU are going to be punished for that. The very demographic that should be rewarded for taking care of themselves and having a decent job are the ones that will pay.

      1. I agree General Lee. (love the name!)
        I come from Canada, so I know some of what socialized “care” is, but it’s going to be worse here. I don’t have an employer outside my family, and my husband is blessed to find part time work again this winter, and won’t be provided benes like healthcare. BUT, I wouldn’t take obamanationscare if I was paid to do it. I guess I’ll just have to let those IRS fines stack up until they try and haul me off to prison.

    2. Great post!
      Thanks for the quotes – I wish those airhead students were made to copy them out one hundred times. That’s how something will stick in one’s memory. Old-fashioned teachers knew this fact.

      1. LOL Thanks colliemum. I rememeber having to do my own share of copying out on the chalkboard 😉
        It’s too bad these people didn’t start learning about their history and people back in grade school!

  19. You know, I get it that when you are in college you are kind of living in a bubble and are spending most of your reading time studying, but in this day and age of the internet, all you need is 10 minutes a day on the internet and you have a little idea of what is going on.

    IDIOTS FOR OBAMA.

  20. I wish I didn’t have grandkids because I wouldn’t care if this group of people got what was coming to them..Seriously..ask them questions about how to mix alcoholic drinks and what bath salts are.They’ll be at the top of their class..???? They are laughing, they need to see right quick the graphics of what is happening in Syria and what is happening to Christians by radical Islam…Seriously the people who do these videos need to ask three questions…A. Do you know you will inherit the debt…B. Do you think you need a college education to have a future of food stamps and welfare…C…Do you understand who these people are that did this in Libya and how much value do you have on your freedom>>??

      1. Seriously you just want to shake them up and say, wake up before it’s tooooo late….It seems like each of these people would have someone in their lives who is informed about things…it also makes you wonder who these teachers are that they know nothing…I guess we all know who the teachers are, which begs the question, if you are paying for your kids to get an education you might want to have a say in what kind of education they are getting…They are nothing without mom and dad’s money, I know how much it cost us…for ours….We need to take back our schools that includes Universities..

  21. Revealing Politics is always behind “enemy lines”. One of their best is at an Ohio State event “Balling for Obama”, a basketball event. No one knew how many US senators there were — that’s not even current events!

    The Exec Dir is a very funny lady the back story for this video is on today’s “War on Bacon” Episode http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_AGTFRaSt8c&feature=plcp
    One over best stories is on 9/10/12 video and starts at 21 minutes, a standup comedian couldn’t be any funnier.

  22. “He didn’t care, he just brushed it off his shoulders and that is leadership right there.” What a dumb kid at 1:48 making a comment like that. I hope he says the same thing when he asks Obama why he can’t get a job when he graduates in a few years. It would be nice to slap the stupid out of those people. OU is just up the road.. road trip!!!!!! Who wants to come?

      1. ABC, let’s pray that it never comes to that. Because if it does, we will be standing next to these stupid people in line for getting our heads chopped off, too.

        This is exactly why I go into the Obamavilles armed with the truth in videos, like this one, and articles.
        Also, I go in with some extra food to put into their community ‘pot of soup.’
        The extra food helps get my foot into these villes. Then the education begins.
        First, I ask questions, just like this interviewer asks.

        The mission is to help them understand that they have no idea what is really going on because they aren’t being told the truth by the news that they are getting from their local tv channels.
        That part is the easiest because of our alternative media sources, like “The Right Scoop.”
        It only takes about 3, or 4 visits to turn around a whole Obamaville and convince them that they need to vote Obama out.
        When the busses come to pick these people up to vote, they will be picking up voters that are informed and angry.

        There is one Obamaville that I visit that is very posh compared to some. They have one of those huge above ground swimming pools with a deck that they made themselves, a bar-b-q, and more. This Ville has many talented people, like construction workers who help build things. It’s on an acre of property that a guy has opened to a select few who also help him out. Most have their own camp trailers. One just has the camper off of a truck. A couple of people only have what they can carry and sleep in bags on the swimming pool deck, or under it, depending on the whether.
        They have access to their local tv channels because several of them have their own tvs with those converter boxes that people got when tv went digital.

        Not all Obamavilles are this posh. Some are worse. Some are better. It depends on the talents that people bring with them into the villes.

        This particular Ville is very organized to survive. Some of them are looking for jobs. A couple of people have found jobs and are trying to work their way back out of this Ville, but they still contribute to the Ville to help the others.

        On my property with a six foot high fence all around the back, I have a guy with an old RV staying and have room for several more, but it sucks that my HOA will fine me if I let more RVs come in, but won’t if I let people camp out in tents. I don’t live there, so my ‘trade’ with guy with the RV is that he is my property caretaker until he is able to work his way back from poverty.

        Educating those who have been forced into only getting the Obama propaganda is paramount. Once I can get them to understand that there is a whole new alternative news source for truth, they want to know more. Their anger over being shut out from the truth is priceless and just where they need to be to be receptive to the truth, solutions, and VOTING.
        Voting not to end up with their heads cut off!

  23. The ignorance is astounding and granted most are young but to think they might actually go to the polls and vote is troubling.

  24. Quickly, RightScoop, get the Al Smith dinner speeches up. It certainly looks like Bo’s farewell address to the big gamers in NY! Glassy eyes and everything, thanking Chris Matthews and others.

    1. I just saw these at AOS Pretty funny!!!

      Romney on debate prep: “First, refrain from alcohol for 65 years before the debate.”
      AND:

      Just had a good joke: “Speaking of Sesame Street, tonight’s dinner was brought to you by the letter ‘O’ and the number 16 trillion.”

      You can’t get through an election without someone who truly stands with you. I have my lovely wife Ann, he has Bill Clinton.

      “Of course rules have to be enforced, we need to make sure things are fair, (sarcastically) that’s why we have the press.”

      “But the press and I have different jobs. My job is to tell the American people my plans for the country, the press’ job is to make sure no one hears about it.”

      The press maybe sees things in a particular way. They’ve already written the headlines about tonight’s dinner: “Obama embraced by Catholics, Romney dines with Rich people”

      1. The press and I have different JOBS, says it all. If a good teacher ever taught us how to think, how to winnow the wheat from the chaff, we get it. Now, how to get that to next generation is our quest!!

        1. I cant wait to see it on video. My husband was in the garage and saw it on Hannity and said it was awesome.

          1. It was a Romney smack down IMHO! And to hear BO acquiesce was just
            Priceless. The info in the body language alone was just terrific!

  25. No, I am surprised. I expected some half-baked, liberal-bull, knowledge of the attacks but the sheer outright ignorance of these toddler-educated fools (although maybe not their fault. How can you correct something you don’t know is wrong?), disgusts me. How is Jihad closer to American shores than ever before? Because of the unadulterated stupidity of the younger generation. Four proud Americans, who refused to abandoned their posts in Benghazi because of the hope they had of a peaceful Middle East, are dead and they haven’t the instincts to even detect that sounds, let alone is, wrong. Disgusting. Their ignorance is absolutely disgusting.

  26. It certainly explains why the only place Obama goes on the campaign trail is a college campus. They don’t call them useful idiots for nothing.

    1. It’s VERY comforting to know the LEADERS of TOMORROW are so up to SPEED on CURRENT EVENTS….

      “Yes. Sir Mr. Former President Sir O’Bama bin Lyin…you’ve done a DANDY term of service… EDUCATING the FUTURE”……

      “BYE…So Sorry to see you go….no, no, that’s okay, we’ll make out alright…you’ve helped enough….Thanx”!…

      “uh.. President Romney”???…………….

  27. Fine example of public taxpayer money spent on higher education of idiots. None of this “adults” should be permitted to vote.

    1. My exact thoughts too. Raise the voting age to 30. Make it 25 if someone becomes a property owner. Revise it downwards once classical education is re-established, say one or two generations down the road.

  28. “He just brushed it off his shoulder. That’s leadership. ”

    Learned that in class, didja?
    Higher Ed brought to you by your public employee union.

    1. Yeah true leadership. Like when Moses brushed off Pharaoh and didn’t let the Israelite bondage bother him. Like when Ike brushed off Hitler. Like when Abe Lincoln brushed off slavery. When the colonists brushed off England or when General Washington brushed off Lord Cornwallis.
      Yup, it takes a true leader to brush it under the rug and move on.

  29. I keep asking myself how on earth anyone with ‘half a brain’ could still be undecided or voting for Obama. These folks make it perfectly clear. They don’t seem to even have ‘half a brain’.

    Perfect representatives of Obama’s base, along with the toddlers!

    1. Frightening…please, please tell me that this man cannot get reelected. Watching these poor, ignorant mindless people, I just want to grab them by the shoulders and shake them, all the while yelling “don’t make everyone pay for your stupidity!! Wake up!” Dear God, please don’t punish us anymore. I wish I hadn’t watched. Now I’m probably going to have nightmares.

    2. Unfortunately, electing Romney only gives this country a few more years till that brainless generation runs this country, and runs it into the ground. I am truly scared for a future with those morons at helm.

      1. I keep hoping these brainless ‘bots’ can be re-educated once Romney/Ryan get this country back on track with jobs, a strong economy, and a strong military.

        I know it’s a long shot, but…..

        1. Im inclined to agree with you conserve…only because I read time and again of those “young people” who have grown and matured, opened their own business and SEE for themselves. Long shot, yes, but I’d rather take that…

  30. When I go out to eat I ask the server who they voted for and if its Obama, I write a little note about supply side economics and how taxes trickle down. The example I provide is their reduced tip. Watching that video makes me feel a little about about my daily economics lesson.

    1. Excellent! You are so clever. That’s one lesson they’ll not only remember but tell others about…Very well done.

      “This guy I served at the restaurant gave me this….”

    2. My Econ professor told us today that the ONLY theory of Economics that is applicable today is the Keynsian model (Supply-Side Economics is the “Classic” model)…what a tool, right!?!

      I think, deep down, we all know Supply-Side is correct, but the thing about Keynsian Economics is that it ONLY works when there is interference in Capitalism. Unbridled Capitalism WILL WORK exclusively based on Supply-Side Economics, and THAT is what we’re trying to get back to. But as long as there are UNIONS that are fixing wages, Supply-Side Economics will never be fully applicable.

      1. I disagree slightly. In order for Capitalism to work properly, the consumer must have all facts and be able to act on them accordingly. Rarely does the consumer have, or is presented with, all the facts. In many cases they must make a judgement call. That lends them to potential fraud.

        Our form of government may not be perfect, but it’s the best we have. Capitalism, as humans can practice it, may not be perfect, but it’s the best we have.

        1. I think you misunderstood. I wasn’t even concerned about Consumers in my post, I was concerned about Government intervention in the markets. Without Unions (Classical/Supply-Side Economics), wages are non-fixed, which means the Employers can change wages as a means of compensating for market variability, which only hurts those employees.

          But with Unions (Keynsian Economics), wages are fixed and thus price-changes and/or supply changes are the only option, all of which hurt THE ENTIRE Economy (whereas simply changing wages would only hurt a few people, which sucks, but is infinitely better than crushing the entire economy as we ALL bear their burden of the higher prices or the supply-shortages that follow).

          As the saying goes: The economy will fix itself if the Government just stops getting involved!!! And that’s correct…the Government is introducing external factors to Capitalism that are unable to be accounted for in the Classical Model (essentially, Liberals created their own Economics theory to follow their own flawed policies).
