Get Informed

Why is that right-wingers often use the phrase “Educate yourself” when in arguments with left wingers, as if the right has some kind of grasp of the facts that the left does not. Everywhere in life, people come to different conclusions from the same set of facts. I think Rush Limbaugh started this meme. People call in with leftist ideas, he lays his version of the facts on them, doesn’t let them interject or respond, then says “Get informed” and hangs up. I’ve had this meme layed on me by right wingers about half a dozen times in the past year, and it’s getting tiresome. Then when I give them my version of the facts, they say “I never heard that” or “Prove it” or “Check your sources.” It’s so arrogant.
