A common definition of ignorance is a lack of knowledge or sophistication. While the dictionary defines stupidity as a slow mind, or given to unintelligent decisions or acts, I prefer the definition associated with the act, as in the act of ignorance.
The elections of 2008 clearly demonstrated the stupidity of a very large segment of the American public. This would include the 52% that voted for Obama and the supporters that did not vote. Initially, I believed the stupidity was a personal opinion based on conversations with liberal associates and respondents on this blog. As time wore on it became apparent that the critical thinking deficiencies among liberals was staggering. The stupidity demonstrated by liberals who called talk radio programs, or interviewed in the “man on the street” segments with the Sean Hannity program, or interviewed by TV media, was overwhelming.
The rhetoric of the Obama cult members is eerily similar to the “brown shirt” worshipers of Hitler, or Lenin’s Bolsheviks or Jim Jones’s congregation. Most of them new very little about their “savior” and those that did were unconcerned. Much is similar with Obama, anointed as the new messiah by the racist Louis Farakhan and the sycophant liberal media gushes with messianic worship. George Stephanopoulos rhapsodizes his “combination of star power”, while Robin Roberts exalts his “team a la President Lincoln” and Andrea Mitchell extols his “all star cabinet of the smartest people”. All were out done by Nancy Gibbs who compared Obama with Jesus. Such pathetic dribble when you consider “the anointed on” has never accomplished anything and other than getting elected has done NOTHING!
To this day Obama’s brain-dead cultist and willfully ignorant supporters can not offer one accomplishment, one qualifier, or any rational reason for their support. All they can muster is some bumper sticker slogan about change or taxing the rich and providing a free lunch, or repeat a re-write of history or some other democrat lies. Nothing accurate or factual, but then when has a liberal ever let a fact get in the way of a needed lie.
Published interviews with some Obama voters illustrated such ignorance it was both hilarious and disappointing. A Zogby Election Test Survey found that most Obama voters could not answer simple questions about civics or Obama correctly. Out of 512 voters 57% did not know democrats controlled congress; 83% did not know it was Obama who won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot; 88% did not know it was Obama who admitted that his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket; 56% did not know Obama started his political career in the home of former domestic terrorist with the Weather Underground; and only 2.4% got at least 11 correct and only .5% answered all the questions correctly.
The stupidity demonstrated by the Obamist and their liberal enablers is bad enough, but then for them to expect the same stupidity by the rest of us is absurd. Think about it. These same liberals who demonstrated such narcissistic elitism and stupidity are now are demanding indulgence from informed conservatives. The visceral hatred and insults these liberals expressed about President Bush and his cabinet, America and the military was deafening and despicable. Now these hate mongering hypocrites are demanding silence of any criticism of the new messiah and his stated Marxist policies and insist he be given a chance to implement his “change”.
Liberals fail to recognize that more than 57 million Americans do not agree with the new messiah’s plan for change. They don’t get it! Of course conservatives will passionately oppose every Marxist policy.
