We are surrounded by stupidity. It's everywhere. It pervades Hollywood, New York, Florida and it's entrenched in the D.C. quagmire. Found in every State in the Republic, stupid is both encouraged and rewarded. Stupid flourishes throughout the media and festers in the political swamp. Speaking stupid is fostered by self-important silver-spoons and proliferates among those blue check morons on the social chatterboxes.
There's no escaping the idiocracy. Fools, tools, and children too, are popping up all over the country, prostituted by media and elites for that 15 minutes of fame. Or is it for shame? It seems to be resonating though, as voters keep electing the village idiot, over and over again. Intellectually stunted talking heads and journalists continue apace parroting a scripted narrative without regard to facts. Viewers and readers stay transfixed with rapt attention.
And, well there's Hollywood and its dwindling talent pool. A vacuum of self-important low-EQ adolescents with too much idle time lamenting lost relevance and no prospects. No one is listening.
Ironically, historically, creatives have always been willing pawns in promoting and echoing the need and want of the State or ruling class. Without fail, as the State turns that corner towards a collective Ism and their usefulness exhausted, they find themselves banished from the hive or shipped off to the gulag or worse, Conformity rewarded, resistance a career killer. They will never learn. Stupid.
What's most baffling with this lot of intellectual giants is that most are graduates of some of the supposedly finest universities in the country. Now, these opportunistic asshats are either just unconscionably playing stupid for attention from their pliable dumbed down audience and base--facts and honesty are just too hard, memories short, power is supreme, damn the consequences--or mostly, they are just this stupid.
So much stupid, so much intellectual dishonesty, it's overwhelming. Damn unconscionable for that matter, power-hungry social-engineering moonbats diminishing a generation to a hive-mind, questioning nothing and challenging less. Nothing more than drones and lemmings.
The sad part of all this nonsense would be the lost opportunity for every American to excel and compete in an open and fair environment which can only be found in what's left of this Constitutional Republic. Elites playing power games for fun or profit have effectively created a third world caste system. Ninety-nine percent of the population are just pawns on a game board designed for and by self-indulgent elites.
Anyway, enough babbling here. We may make this a regular compilation of quotes and links without the meandering preamble but with plenty of comment and a belly laugh or two, or three.
Let's begin with a Ben Garrison cartoon depicting the poster child for stupid.
"Are you aware of the perception of many about how the power and the discretion at ICE is being used to enforce the laws and do you see any parallels [with the KKK]?" — Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif. Read more here.
And it would be a short war my friend. The government has nukes. Too many of them. But they’re legit. I’m sure if we talked we could find common ground to protect our families and communities.— Rep. Eric Swalwell (@RepSwalwell) November 16, 2018
“As the California death toll rises our Sadist-in-Chief is spending $220 million to send troops to the border for nothing. That’s one way to get rid of Democrats. This is no longer politics. This is manslaughter,” the actor wrote on Twitter on Thursday.
Stupid and stupider.
“I was reading about Zimbabwe today, and I’ve been to Zimbabwe. I know it’s a young country with all kinds of problems. … He is taking us back to where they are, where all the opposition does is say that people who win elections are crooked, that everything’s rigged, everything — nothing’s on the level, there’s no such thing as objective truth, everything is tribal, our side is always right, your side’s always wrong.”
Children say the darndest things.
"Congress ought to create a federal tax on gun sales to fund gun violence research."
Sometimes as a prosecutor I’d pass info to the defense attorney FULLY expecting it’d go to defense witnesses. I’d then sit back & listen to the witnesses call each other to get their stories straight & fill out my conspiracy case. Mueller is 100x smarter than i was. #ByeStone— Rep.

From Nancy 'You can read the bill once we pass the bill.' Pelosi.
