I often engage with Stupidparty disciples on Twitter or Facebook and occasionally even on this website. Very quickly a pattern emerges. They post some thought that can usually be put on a bumper sticker. I ask for substance, some evidence of intelligent thinking. 99% of the time, in spite of thrice repeated appeals, nothing is forthcoming—they literally have nothing—no substance, no intellect and ultimately once stripped bare it can be seen that they have lost all decency, their humanity and if there is such a thing—their very soul.
I will soon be posting a explanation of how to achieve a checkmate against any Stupidparty disciple in five moves—checkmate being declared once the disciple’s arguments have devolved to such a point that they reveal some form of outed bigotry, intolerant hate, revealing a soulless individual—a wraith.
But how did we get to this point—of almost half the country falling into a cult of hate, or if not hate, then a total loss of critical thinking? We debate with facts, they retort with slogans. They literally have nothing. Hence the horrendous quality of Stupidparty presidential candidates in 2012 and now 2016. It’s gotten so bad that Stupidparty chumps are wantonly economically cutting their own throats by trying to eradicate healthcare, social security, education—all in order to further enrich the top 158 families that now control democracy itself. It has gotten so bad that even though each Stupidparty conspiracy theory not only gets nailed, but the perpetrators consistently get caught with their pants down—whether this be the Benghazi “Wally World” road trip, the IRS emails, Kim Davis and the Pope, the Pope’s Christian values—all in a short time frame—but few bother to connect the dots. The Stupidparty is a scam, it is a pyramid scheme.
Now we must know that brain washing people en mass is not so tough. 50% of Utah are Mormon, 80% of Evangelicals voted for Romney, an asset stripping, serial lying misogynist, the polar opposite of Jesus, Hitler captured the hearts and minds of the people, in China they still honor the memory of Mao—the Russian people love the bare chested barbaric actions of Putin, the genocide of the Serbians, the Hutu, ISIS—all being totally liberated from the pain of actual thinking, the pain of knowledge, what better than the bliss of a good old fashioned manly massacre of your imagined enemies. The conservative brain (yes it is always the conservative brain, and yes that includes incorrectly supposed communists Stalin and Mao) is pre-programmed to act in this way, all it needs is some one to light the fuse.
So how did this happen with the US political process? How did so many people get so badly brainwashed—who lit the fuse?
“Many of us understand the damage that has been done by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, FOX News, and Hate Media. You can hear the promotion of blatant racism, homophobia, misogyny and bigotry just by turning on the TV, radio or computer. Malicious lies are perpetuated until they are believed, by those who have been sucked in and who now use right-wing media as their only source of ‘news.’ Jen Senko is a filmmaker who watched the transformation of her father as he slowly came to believe the extreme right-wing propaganda. Senko is now making a documentary about it called The Brainwashing Of My Dad.”
Do you notice who is always the enemy of people like Hitler, Stalin, Mao, or actions such as War, Genocide, False Information, Environment Destruction, School Shootings, Poverty, Disease and various forms of Bigotry. Yes it is always the same group of Educators, Professors, Writers, Artists, social workers, Liberals—these are the people who must be vilified. Ring any bells?
This dumbing down of America has meant that candidates do not have to make any sense and are not accountable to facts.
Because of this ineptitude, this lowering of the bar, this is how the New York Times should be reporting the news:
