Conservatism: Where The Stupid Rules.


We are filing today's post under "Conservatives Are Stupid" - a label we've put on our daily posts for the 218th time.

How can we ignore the stupid when it permeates the Conservative "movement" right and left, only hidden by the massive amount of meanness that stupidity generates?

This article lays it on the line and should be read by every voter in the country...

"The Republican Party Has Literally Become the Party of Stupid."

"While I’ve lived in Texas all my life, I’ve never seen Republicans behave how they have these last few years. After all, prior to George W. Bush becoming our governor in 1995, we had a female Democrat, Ann Richards, as our governor. That was two decades ago, but it’s still shocking to think that Texas has gone from electing a female Democrat to the highest office in the state – to electing someone like Ted Cruz as one of our two senators.

"I remember not too long ago when things like evolution and climate change weren’t 'topics up for debate' and anyone suggesting they were was viewed as an imbecile.

"What the hell has happened?

"In the last few years, the Republican party has literally become the party of stupid.

"We’re battling people who look at 97 percent of the world’s scientists and say, 'No thanks, I don’t believe your liberal lies about climate change. Besides, winter… duh!.' As if there’s some massive global conspiracy against the GOP’s propaganda. Not only that, but much of the 'data' these fools on the right use to try to debunk climate change is paid for by big oil – an industry that stands to lose billions of dollars if we were to ever move away from fossil fuels.

"Then there are those trying to get creationism put alongside evolution in biology textbooks. These people want the belief that the Earth is 6,000 years old, and that dinosaurs walked alongside humans, right alongside evolution – a theory that’s soundly supported by overwhelming scientific data.

"Oh, and we can’t forget about gun nuts. You know, the people who literally claim that guns have nothing to do with gun violence; that somehow guns make us safer, except for the fact that we lead the modern world in gun violence while also having more guns than everyone else. If more guns really made us safer, then shouldn’t we be the safest country on the planet with the lowest rate of gun violence?

"I’m sorry, I like to use logic every once in a while.

"Then we can’t forget the religious folks who somehow believe that their freedoms are being trampled on because they’re being prevented from denying millions of Americans their Constitutional rights. No matter how hard I try, I still can’t wrap my mind around that ridiculous 'logic.'

"But then there’s always the economic theory pushed by the GOP that if we just make rich people richer, that somehow the rest of us will benefit. Meanwhile, not only are Republicans admitting that income inequality is a problem – they’re pushing for more of the same policies that made it a problem in the first place..."

That SEEMS to explain the Conservative stupidity, but perhaps you need some more proof that Conservatism is for the dumbest among us?

So that we won't be accused of cherry picking, let's look for some more examples of stupid Conservatives - starting with this dummy...



...and this one...



...and the guy who complained about the "GOP" being "POTS." (the Party of The Stupid...)



But to understand what's happening, one of the problems with Conservative stupidity is that it also infects the leadership, like this guy...



...along with his advisors...



...although the leadership would have to admit that the stupid runs from the bottom up.


Sometimes the stupidity seems to help others who need help...



...but it usually doesn't.



Maybe some remedial reading classes can help those intellectually challenged Cons...



...and maybe science can help...



...but probably not...



...or maybe we should have said definitely not...



...and here's why...



...because the stupid - it burns...


...especially when it infects the politics of a democratic country...

 

...and leads to satirical memes like this that are uncomfortably close to the truth:



But finally, the low IQ of the typical Conservative follower may be genetic...



...reminding us of the old saying:




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

We've mentioned more than a few times that the only difference between today's GOP and your grandfather's GOP is that the leadership has allowed the inmates to run the asylum.

Stupidity isn't a crime, though many think it should be.

But when the Conservative leadership deliberately proselytizes these morons to do their dirty work and march in lockstep to the voting booths, maybe we should send some of these dummies back to school to learn that the best thing we can do for our country is to...

...criminalize Conservatism.

Joyce, Jnr.
