Why Don't Liberals Know?

This is an honest question. The leftists I know seem to have honest gaps in their knowledge. Talking with my mom after the DC protests...She knew nothing about that young woman who was shot in the throat by the goons, but was all wound up about a cop or security guard who was beaten severely and later died (said it was Trump's fault, too). Both are bad...Why the omission? A lady I work with wears a big, retro ERA button on her dress clothes. I remember that movement from when I was a kid and the button's kinda cool. She's obviously very pro equality for women. So am I. I have a daughter. But, when I asked her if she's ever heard of Sharia Law...nope. No idea what that is. Perhaps these people, unlike me, just draw all their information from a very, very narrow few sources. They honestly seem to not know anything about government goons harming people, throwback cultures that still treat women like animals. It's dangerous, surely. But, I also find it very curious.

    Confounding our language (the meaning of words) turned into confounding, not just our history but our total education as well and the media has done it's job to keep voters UNinformed too.

    It's easier to be spoonfed when you're educated to follow. It's what the decades of institutionalized indoctrination were for. Not to mention the relentless onslagut of leftist ideas, subtle or blunt, saturating society from hollywood and media every second.
    The "gaps" aren't, they are just unecessary pieces that don't fit cleanly into the narrative given to the drones.

    I am for people rewarded for merit, not equality.
    Women and men are not equal. The two sexes are different, not equal.
    No two people are equal. We are all different. Equality? Rubbish.
    Take the ERA badge and bury it with the Soviet Union.
    The lady wearing the button might ask, "What's the Soviet Union?"
    Yes, leftists have a lot to learn and as long as leftists are running the schools they will be brainwashed, not taught. That's why.

    Technological prosperity (the creation of "tools") has brought such comfort, and distancing from the immediacy of mortality, that the allowance, of approach to living, may be made from an emotional base. The "mice" from Universe 25.
    Remove the "safeties" and a common awareness of our collective, mutual vulnerabilities, reasserts.

    The thing that bothers me about the liberals I know is that they are determined to limit what we can see and discuss. They openly long for the old days of Walter Cronkite when the executives of the three networks would lunch together and decide what news we were going to see.

      The Cronkite reference makes a very good point. I’m going to marinate on that a bit as I try to understand what’s happening. Thank you for the data I was overlooking.
      This is Bezos and Zuckerberg and that Twidiot returning to the “good old days”
