Conservative Brain Has Not Evolved Beyond Self Destruction.

I use the word stupid much too much. But what other word can one use to describe the people in a democracy who vote for, watch, and abet the destruction of democracy, their families, their family's health and economic stability, and a long list of dumb conservative ideas borne of right wing Republican politics? They vote for conservative politicians whose rhetoric and policies do nothing for 99% of Americans, white, black, brown, yellow, red, and all colors in between.

*A major problem with the conservative electorate is that the conservative brain has not evolved fast enough to overcome human stupidity. A comic who plays to an audience that proudly answer to the labels redneck, Republican, Southern, and conservative, famously said: "You can't fix stupid". The statement always got ringing laughter and applause from his conservative redneck audience. Likely,however, everyone who applauded those words were convinced that he was referring to a lot of people that did not include themselves.

*There is a legitimate insane madness in this kind of behavior. It is the behavior of a critical part of the human species bent on self destruction and bent on anarchy that leads to human extinction. This kind of behavior is not surprising when it comes from a peoples raised on hypocritical religion, racism, a lack of education, and a lack of genuine self esteem.

True patriotic Americans can only hope that, as some reports suggest that the climate change deniers conservative base who listen to Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, et al and vote for their oppressors is a dying breed.

But if their numbers are increasing and you really can't fix stupid, can extinction far behind?

I personally think of conservatives as a cross between Barney Fife and a chimp.

1. Considering that human overpopulation is the number one problem on this planet...

 

This may be a blessing.

3. LBJ explained...

We were in Tennessee. During a motorcade, the President spotted some ugly racial epithets scrawled on signs by a few plain, he called them homely, white women on the edge of the crowd. Late that night in the hotel, long past midnight, he was still going on about how poor whites and poor blacks had been kept apart so that they could separately be fleeced-. ''I'll tell you what's at the bottom of it," he said. "If you can convince the lowest white man that he's better than the best colored man, he won't notice you're picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he'll even empty his pockets for you."

4. Why are they so afraid of everything?

You name it and conservatives has a fear of it. This has to be an ancient part of the brain that hasn't evolved in them yet in my opinion. That's why I think of them as a cross between Barney Fife and a chimp.
