[Ed. – Conservatives are also depicted as intellectually inferior, according to Daily Wire.  (On the plus side, they do know how to pronounce “corpsman.”)]

“Through Palin, it seemed as if the dark spirits that had long been lurking on the edges of the modern Republican Party — xenophobia, anti intellectualism, paranoid conspiracy theories, an antipathy toward Black and brown folks — were finding their way to center stage,” Obama accuses in the memoir, as noted by The Blaze.
