Gullibility or Stupidity?

When I heard that Michael Jackson had died I wondered how long before we would hear about Michael Jackson sightings, much like Elvis, Princess Di, etc.  Within a day or so I found this post on the front page of WordPress.  By the time I read the post it had quite a few stupid comments.  I subscribed to the post and commented a couple of times.  I suspect many of the posters are very young, even so, the stupidity is astounding.

You only need read a handful of the comments to understand why people believe:

  • in god
  • creationism or intelligent design
  • President Obama is a Muslim born in Kenya who hates white people and his entire economic policy and health care reform are about reparations
  • Obama’s failure would be good for America

I don’t think a day goes by when I don’t hear a sound byte from a Republican politician or some right wing pundit that makes me think being lobotomized is a requirement for party membership.  Ever since the eight year nightmare that was the Bush administration it is as though, for a certain segment of society, it has become in vogue to be an idiot.  If you’re too stupid to dress yourself in the morning, much less be a productive member of society go into politics (republican…goes without saying).  The heights to which you will rise will be directly proportionate to how low you measure on the IQ scale.

  1. I don’t know which is more amazing, that those people think Michael Jackson is alive, or that so many of them think if he is alive he is actually reading that blog. Many of say things like, Michael if you’re reading this….

    And they are not all that young, one person, a woman I think, mentions she is 34 and had to be taken to the hospital when she heard of his death as she had a total breakdown.

    • I had the same thoughts about the likelihood of Michael Jackson reading that blog, but what can I say..I think it was PT Barnum that said nobody ever went broke underestimating the gullibility of the American public (or words to that effect).
