    Why?
    Surely chess players represent a broad cross-section of society?
    Maybe slightly above average IQ but not necessarily.

    So why do right-wingers get so many thumbs down?

    Actually, libtards are quite common among intellectuals who have little common sense.

    it's not that there are a lot of "libtards". it's the number of deluded people who think thumbs up/down is worth something that is too damn high. they probably believe in homeopathy as well

    So the fact you got a degree means you are not an intellectual? This doesn't make sense.

    Indeed. We should all strive to be like the great intellectual Bobby Fisher.

    Anti-Semitism anyone? You guessed it! Let's throw those Zionist Jew bastards into the sea!!

    No...a degree doesn't necessarily mean you are an intellectual...great display though.

    So you don't have to have ANY amount of superior intelligence to get a degree? Especially in STEM subjects like he has? Seems to me more like a case of the kettle calling the pot black.

    I think Eladar was referring to "intellectuals" ( please see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intellectual ) , not just having a certain degree of "intelligence".

    Let me rephrase.
    Why do the Eladars and Whodeys etc. think they are
    "out of step" with the majority of the forum community here?

    Believing that dinosaurs walked the earth 4000 years ago is a more
    reliable marker for stupidity.

    Awww shucks !!
    I promised I wouldn't bring up Trump's support base. My bad !!

    Outnumbered, just like FOX News says, but no matter how dominant their position, the right-wingers always present themselves as the poor injured, innocent Christian martyrs.

    intelligence doesn't equate to common sense.
