5. Because conservative rank-and-file view "nuanced" as dishonest.

 


The only reason they view nuanced as dishonest is because they can't understand it. And the only explanation for that is: they're stupid.

I really do hate that kind of wide brush painting. But what other explanation can there be?

Ayn Rand was so incapable of making her point that she had to end her book with a hundred page long monologue to explain it.

The original Cheaper by the Dozen would interupt the story every half hour or so while the Father or Mother gave a speech as the kids looked on wide-eyed with lots of "gosh" and "I didn't know that". After a couple minutes it would resume the story like nothing happened.

These authors either were too stupid to embed their messages in the story, or knew their target audience was too stupid to understand an embedded message. Heck, I've seen elected GOP congress-critters on CSPAN on several times talk about how their voters were too stupid to understand what they are doing. Show that to a GOP voter, and they'll laugh assuming the elected official must be making fun of all the liberals in their district.
