Since presidential advisor, MIT professor Johnathon Gruber, went public with his distain for “stupid American voters,” some in the media have become dimly curious. Gruber, one of the architects of the failed “Obamacare” health care fiasco, was inadvertently forthcoming about how the public is manipulated and lied to in order to promote the administration’s agenda.
“Take global warming (aka climate change) for example,” blurted Gruber, “that’s a complete crock and everybody knows it, but the general public still eat’s it up with a spoon.”
“Heck, a few years ago we got caught red-handed making up the data on global warming!” said Gruber. “But, it only took our embedded operatives in the media a couple of months to ‘clean it up,’ and now it’s like it never happened.”
“That’s why I’m fine with telling the truth about how incredibly stupid the American voter is and just how much the administration despises them…in a couple of weeks they will have forgotten all about it.”
Gruber admitted that humans have little if anything to do with planetary climate, but if made to feel guilty enough for ‘harming the planet,’ they’ll allow government to “do whatever we want.”
“We could have called it Bloviational Climate-Malfeasance and the dumb-asses would have still bought it,” confided a smug Gruber.
The bottom line according to Gruber is that the endless expansion of government control and imposition of more taxes aren’t too popular with the “proles,” so we need to “dress it up with fake issues like climate change and free healthcare.”
“It’s still just more taxes and more government power, but the dimwit voters won’t figure it out in time to save themselves,” chortled Gruber.
Asked about why he declined the new cabinet-level position with the newly formed Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda in the Obama administration, Gruber said, “Hey, I make more money writing part-time for the Daily Show!”
“Now if you will excuse me I have a lot of work to do with immigration reform,” concluded Gruber.
