Are Conservatives Crazy AND Stupid?


Are Conservatives crazy and stupid, just crazy, or just stupid?

It's not None of The Above as we learn from Rep. Michelle Bachmann as she notes, "Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn’t even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas."

We've eliminated "evil" from the question since we try to be fair and balanced, so here's a few of the stupid and crazy Cons for your viewing pleasure...

"Armed Militia Group To Confront Black Democrats At Wisconsin Polling Places."

WIVoters

"From Liberaland:

"A self-described armed militia group in Wisconsin plans to target African American Democrats and responded to the controversy in the typical way: You’re a racist if you call out racism. 'We prefer our people be armed,' Wisconsin Poll Watcher Militia’s Facebook page reads. 'Some will be heading to some of Milwaukee, Racine, and Beloit’s worst areas. We will be armed with a list of people to look for at each location.'

"The group shared a photo on their Facebook page of the kind of people they’ll be targeting. Their Facebook page has been taken down, either by them or (more likely) Facebook. How fortuitous that our friends at Liberaland captured a screenshot.

"But they’re aren’t targeting ONLY black Democrats, they say! From their Facebook page:
"We can assure you that we will be targeting all democrats, not just black ones. If you think we meant blacks only it is because you are a racist who thinks the only people with warrants are black. We know better because we have a nice list of people who are wanted democrat activist types. Most are actually white. We will target everyone."
"Group leader Patrick Murray confirms that his group will only be targeting Democrats — no Republicans..."

Nope, no evil meanies here, let's look somewhere else...

"Border Bridge Control Protest Attracts Just FIVE Racist Right-Wing Nut Jobs (Video)."

Starr County Texas militias will block bridges on Mexican border

(Go to the article and scroll down for the video.)

"You know all those right-wing hatriot militias who threatened to block bridges along the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas on September 20 to protest illegal border crossings?

"Bands of these supposedly “well-regulated” groups — with names like 'Secure Our border – Laredo' the 'Oathkeepers,' the 'Three Percenters' and the 'American Patriots' — were loaded for coyote, and raucously recruiting 'volunteers' to 'help protect' folks from drug cartels, gang members, and undocumented immigrants. Never mind that people crossing our border illegally probably don’t bother with the bridges…"

Those guys were stupid AND mean, so let's try someone who isn't stupid or crazy, just mean and on a quest for money...

"Koch Puppet Republican Accuses Climate Scientists of Lying About Global Warming for Money."



"Debating the existence of climate change and global warming is like debating the existence of gravity: it’s a 'debate' only insofar as the technicalities and exact mechanisms, but the broad basics — that is, “this thing exists” — have been settled. And both gravity and climate change exist.

"And yet, there will always be that one idiot who thinks they can fly. And unfortunately for us, that one idiot is the entire Republican party in general and, today at least, Larry Bucshon (R-IN) in particular. Buchson squared off against White House Science Adviser John Holdren, and not only secured a position among the 'idiots who think they can fly' segment of the population, but also secured a position in the Hall of Mind-Boggling Hypocrisy when he admitted that he doesn’t accept scientific literature on climate change.

"Why?

"Because according to Bucshon, the scientists who write the literature need global warming to exist in order to get paid. Which is to say, he doesn’t trust the literature because the climate scientists are in it for the money.

"Bucshon began his testimony Wednesday by questioning the entire premise of the administration’s Climate Action Plan. To do this, Buchson trotted out two tired old canards that even I, an amateur with limited exposure to climatology, could address: that global temperatures have not changed in nearly two decades and that the 'climate is always changing...'"

But in the end, it's all about stupidity, insanity, AND greed...



********************


Stupidity, insanity, and greed are the hallmarks of Conservatism.  Do these attributes have any place in our society?

The combination of these three deadly elements of Conservatism have brought our country to the mess it's in today.

It's impossible to outlaw stupidity and insanity, but criminalizing Conservatism eliminates the greed factor and then the stupid and crazy will fall into line.

Criminalize Conservatism NOW, before it's too late.
