I’m old enough to know better, but sometimes I can’t believe how stupid and gullible people can be. But it seems like every day I am reminded that stupidity is alive and well today, thanks to the Republican party.
I have an app on my phone called “Next Door” which is supposed to notify those on the app about things of interest to people who live in the neighborhood. I hadn’t checked it in a long time, but for some reason, I decided to see what was happening, or not, in my neighborhood. I saw the usual “welcome to the neighborhood” posts, ads for home services, and occasional minor incidents such as car break-ins. I then noticed a thread of posts about the varying costs of gas around town. Most were informing people where the cheapest prices could be found. Then I noticed that the village idiots had found the thread.
Yup, the dropouts from the internet school of economics were spewing their idiocy in the majority of the comments. “If Trump were still President we would be paying much less”, “Biden raised the prices to give money to illegal immigrants”, “Biden stole the election and now he’s stealing our money”, and ” Biden invented Covid to be able to raise prices”! The best comment was about how Biden won the election because the Democrats let millions of dead people vote!
These are the people who proudly hang banners from their dilapidated barns saying “Trump won and everybody knows it”. I guess the 81 million people who voted for Biden don’t count. These are the people who have made it so difficult to defeat Covid because they’re too stupid to realize wearing masks protect them and others. They’re the ones who believe the vaccines embed microchips into the recipients and more people are dying as a result of the vaccines than the disease itself. Instead, they take horse dewormers and drink their own urine!
I thought I had seen it all until Russia invaded Ukraine. Led by Fox News’ influence undoubtedly, I am seeing posts on social media supporting Russia and Putin, over the United States. They blame Biden! Most of them are not old enough to remember crouching under their school desk as practice in case of a Russian nuclear attack. Russia is not now, nor has she ever been our friend. Russia has numerous times in the past vowed to destroy us and our democracy. Yet these morons support Putin because he was Trump’s puppet master.
On an almost daily basis, we learn about how deeply involved in the January 6th insurrection Trump was. And now we have learned that Trump stole classified top secret documents and moved them to Mar a Lago. I am sure he intended to sell them for financial gain, but our village idiots don’t say a thing. Most likely because they either don’t know about it or if they did, they don’t care, because Fox doesn’t report it. It has come to light that Trump has committed numerous crimes, which could or should result in jail time. He could provide enough episodes for “Law and Order” to air for the next 30 years! Yet our village idiots remain with their heads up their collectives asses, completely aware of the real world!
Stupidity is all around us and it can be extremely dangerous to our democracy. These people vote! Remember this in November.
