Why Are There So Many Idiots in Politics?

You really have to wonder who ran against some of these morons in political office sometimes. Honestly, was the alternative to someone like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez being forced to step on a rusty nail? Was Eric Swalwell’s opponent a literal cannibal promising to consume children if elected? If you set out to elect some of the dumbest creatures to ever walk upright on the planet, you couldn’t do much better than what Democrats currently have serving in Congress and the White House. Why?


There is no good answer, at least one that covers everyone. There are, after all, a lot of really dumb Democrats in office. You have to ascribe some of it to identity politics, which is the polite way of saying racism, but the rest of it has to be tied to people’s desires to be pandered and lied to. A fish swallows a hook because it wants the worm, dumb people see pandering the way a fish sees that worm.

Look, there have always been, and will always be, dumb people in the world. But you don’t give them power the way Democrats have. You hold them off with promises and distract them with shiny objects because they’re stupid. 

Democrats, however, have run out of smart people to convince anymore – the emperor has no clothes, or more accurately the President has no brain cells. People are seeing what the party has become. 

The best, and perhaps only good thing to come out of COVID is parent’s paid attention to what their kids were learning in school. Not their lesson plans, which good parents always paid attention to, but the stuff in between, the parts where gender is allegedly a mystery and fluid. Where sexuality is more important than math, and a new gender is born every 20 minutes and “bird” can be a pronoun.


If you wonder how there are so many idiots out there electing Democrats all you have to do is notice that we have a publicly funded factory churning out morons through a painstaking 13-year process of indoctrination.

COVID allowed parents to see behind the curtain for the first time. Now they’re looking at everything through fresh eyes. 

Joe Biden’s BS is being rejected by the public. Republicans need to smear that disgust for Biden over all Democrats, since they are of the same mind, and November will right the ship of state.

However, we will still be inundated with idiots, only this time in the minority.

Rashida Tlaib, who represents the district I grew up in, will win another 2 years, as will Cori Bush. They are two people who need to wear slip-on shoes because learning to tie a bow is a bridge too far for their mental abilities. Jamie Raskin isn’t going anywhere, him representing a district in a state so gerrymandered the map Democrats created looked like someone sneezed on a wet Rorschach test. It was so bad in Maryland a liberal judge tossed it out.

Yet, Democrats will remain a force no matter what happens in the election. Enough dumb people will be sending leftists to Washington because people who live in absolute pits of despair – Chicago’s south side, Detroit, Baltimore, St. Louis – where the economy only works for Democrat power brokers and their politicians they enable, will vote for the same people who caused their economic problems under the guise of “the other side is worse.” 


You have to be stupid to believe Republicans could be worse than what Democrats are in these communities. If you tried to destroy these cities, aside from literally bombing them from the air, it is hard to think of what you could do differently to make them worse than Democrats have in the name of “helping” people.

You can’t help people who won’t help themselves, and there must come a point at which you have to stop trying. If these cities keep electing horrible, corrupt politicians or straight up morons, they have to deal with the consequences. You can’t convince someone to change their long held political beliefs, you just have to let them marinate in the fallout and hope they wise up.

In the meantime, focus on winning the races that are winnable. Focus on the Senate. There are a lot of tough races there, but winning them will make all the difference. 

There are a lot of idiots in politics. And yes, a few of them are Republicans, too. We can worry about replacing them once we vanquish the horde of them on the left. But the real way to keep idiots out of politics is to destroy the education system that produces so many of them in the first place.
