Stupidest People in Politics
Have you ever felt like bashing your head into a wall just so you can go into a coma so you would not have to put up with all the stupidity that surrounds you? Well after looking at the stupid things I have seen this week, a coma sounds nice. Well, let’s get ready to PWNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN! It was a goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood week for me, but a bad week for America.
President Obama spoke out against Fox New’s slandering coverage of how the poor are treated. (One of the few good things he has done as of late), but it seems that two stooges on Fox are taking exception to this, from Media Matters: President Obama: Fox News’ Coverage of Poverty Suggests the Poor “Don’t Want to Work, Are Lazy” (Boguhn & Groch-Begley, 2015). Of course this did not sit well with the “fair and balanced” people over on Fox, so Steve Doocy was so angry, he had this to say, “”don’t want to be poor,” they should just get a job (Boguhn & Groch-Begley, 2015). Mr. Doocy, if it was only that easy. From constitutional rights,
“In 2011, the US Department of Labor reported at least 10 million people worked and were still below the unrealistic official US poverty line, an increase of 1.5 million more than the last time they checked. The US poverty line is $18,530 for a mom and two kids. Since 2007 the numbers of working poor have been increasing. About 7 percent of all workers and 4 percent of all full-time workers earn wages that leave them below the poverty line.”
Since they still work and they don’t earn enough Mr. Doocy, there goes your “Theory” maybe if they earned more they would not be in poverty, oh we know it is more complex than that, but it is getting harder to get by on minimum wage, and yes they are supposed to be entry jobs, but a lot of times, people need an income and will take anything they can get. The level of disgusting poor shaming that Fox news does is beyond appalling. I am making a challenge to Mr. Doocy, if the solution is to get a job, quit yours at Fox and do not dip into your savings, go and get a job that pays minimum wage and let’s see how long you can live off of it. Want to make a wager that he will not have the guts to do this?
Next up, Allen “he went due East” West for his outrage at the pope, calling the Pope an anti-semite for recognizing Palestine. From Raw Story, ““This is horrific,” West told Newsmax host Steve Malzberg on Thursday. “At a time when Islamic terrorists are slaughtering Christians — Catholics — all over the Middle East, for the Pontiff to recognize a terrorists organization — which is really, either Hamas or Fatah, they’re both terrorists organizations, it’s just the degree of the actions that they’re taking” (Edwards, 2015). Yeah, let’s remember Darfur, and Rwanda why don’t we? Mr. West, why don’t you go live in Palestine and come back and tell us how it is to have people shooting rockets at you all the time.
The winner is, Brain Fischer, who is a spokesman for the American Family Association, what has Mr. Fischer said? Here are just a taste of what he has said. From People for the American Way, on homosexuality, Mr. Fischer has stated that, “Fischer has likened gays to domestic terrorists, pedophiles, slave traders and murderers, and decried the adoption of children by gay parents as a “terrible, inexcusable, inhumane thing to do to children” (Way, 2015). That is not all, Fischer has also tried to connect homosexuals to Hitler, hey genius, Hitler executed homosexuals. According to the Center for Holocaust & Genocide studies, “In the 1930’s, there began in Germany a persecution of male homosexuals that was, like that of Jews, the worst in their respective histories. Lesbians, since they could continue to breed children, presented no practical reproductive problems to the Nazi state” (Minnesota, 1998). But, that is not the best for Mr. Fischer, he next implies that unless Muslims are converted to Christianity, then they should die, from People for the American Way, “So we say to them, look, if you don’t want our missionaries, fine, that’s your choice, we’ll take our missionaries and our Marines, we’ll take them home, but we’re going to let you know we have no hesitation about returning with lethal force if the forces in your country threaten us again. This time it’s Marines and missionaries, next time it’ll be Marines and missiles” (Way, 2015). How Christian of you, either join our religion, or we will have people kill you. Mr. Fischer, no 1, America is not a Christian nation, how we treat the poor is proof enough of that, but even if we were. What on Earth give you or anyone else the right to threaten anyone’s life with death if they do not join your religion? Not only do you slander Islam, but you slander Christianity, any decent person will be appalled at your words. Any decent person would call the police if you actually meant the words spewing out of your mouth. Mr. Fischer, you just made some Christians look insane. Do not worry, the men in the white coats are coming for you, to put you away so that you cannot hurt anyone. Mr. Brian, “I am a bigoted idiot” today’s stupidest person in politics.
