“Common-sense” is NOT ubiquitous; not generic or the opinion of the average person. The natural meaning of a situation is anti-elite because the truth is not twisted to promote an agenda contrary to regular folks principals.
An old man (appearing to be alert) at an informal discussion group, at a coffee shop I occasionally patronize says; he was present personally during the last few years of Hitler’s rein in Germany.

Liberals are not hypocrites. Their double-standard behavior, conservative versus liberal, has been established in fact by empirical evidence. However, you must have principals to be hypocritical.
