Cutting Through The Crap

Idiots. Nasty, Stupid, Dangerous Idiots.

Puzzle: What do you get when you combine reflexive hatred with chronic stupidity, mixed with such longstanding disregard for fact that you no longer can recognize reality, nor care to, and add in levels of credulity that most sentient humans left behind when they graduated kindergarten?

This:



These people got into Congress by being elected. There are voters out there who knowingly send people like that to represent them in influencing the policies of the United States of America. Who listen to Fox "news" and Rush Limbaugh, and read Breitbart's ghost-site, and buy it; believe it like they believe Jonah really set up shop inside a whale; believe it like they believe teabaggers arose from the roots of the greenest grass, like they believe Mitch McConnell and Eric Cantor and John Boehner and Paul Ryan have their best interests at heart.

As long as there are people like that electing people like that based on listening to people like that, we're  simply and totally screwed. What a deadly combination of all the worst traits possible in humankind. What irony that they call themselves patriots. How thoroughly they've destroyed democracy. How blind.

I guess I should stop. There's no point jumping out the window: I'm on the first floor.

Sid, be honest, in an Alternative Universe where Romeney was President, (I know, its about as farfetched as Dick Chaney on the Surpreme Court)a Sec Def who referred to the "Jewish Lobby" would have the DemoKKKrats comparing him to Goebbles, Heinrick"No Chin" Himmler, and Rudolf "Rudy" Hess..
Other than his Anti-Semite-ism, I sorta like Hagel, he reminds me of, well, Me(HT Doc Holliday in Tombstone)War Hero, Plain Spoken, Dim witted...

Why is it Doc, that a common thread in the idiot world seems to be a whitness aspect? I think subhuman myself. What is your considered opinion?

I wouldn't say subhuman. And whereas it's true that the majority of those with teabagger mentality and obstructionist behavior are white, idiocy on that side includes such luminaries as Alan West, Alan Keyes, Herman Cain, Ted Cruz, Bobby Jindal, Marco Rubio, Tim Scott.

A big part of right wing craziness, I'd say, stems from white people who dislike seeing increasing minorities around them. Why that's true, and why it's only right wingers who feel that way, I can't really say. Since most claim to be Christians, and since Christianity claims to be charitable and loving of one's neighbors, it seems paradoxical.
