Stupid is as Stupid Does

There is nothing more frightening than active ignorance. Goethe

The 9-12 assault on Washington DC by about 70 thousand Tea Baggers will likely be remembered as the largest display of unbridled ignorance this century. When these people state they only wish to take their country back, I want to ask them, "take it back from whom?" But I fear I already know from whom. They want to return America to the days when white skin guaranteed a job, a loan, a club membership, a nice home in the 'burbs', or just a seat on the bus. A time before you had to press #1 for English or to wait in line behind someone for whom English is their second language. Many of these simple people lived their entire lives in a white bread and mayo world that's now becoming an exotic deli perfumed by the cuisine from places they never knew existed.

"[America] will always be sucker bait for the next war until the system that sustains ignorance-as-patriotism and militant religiosity ends."

Joe Bageant, Deer Hunting with Jesus

I have read your blog & I'm trying to give you the benefit of the doubt, but you come off as an angry, guilt-ridden white liberal.

Though you do have some valid points, you seem to easily slide down the slippery slope of victimology.

What's your deal?

Funny how every Leftist turd thinks they need to "enlighten" everyone else that doesn't agree with their viewpoint. Your phony claim as the "protectors of free speech," is silenced once a dissenting voice is raised. Rather than debating issues, you creeps resort to name calling and the tired calls of, "IGNORANCE!" Your tactics are nothing new, they are the default position of the spineless Entitlement Crowd that will do whatever it takes to bring this country to its' knees, serfs to every government program you can dream up.
