Sec. Kerry Defines “Stupid”

September 16, 2013


What is the connection between “In America you have a right to be stupid” and “freedom of speech, religion and thought”? Statement made by Secretary of State Kerry to a group of students in Germany, NY Times Magazine.

The whole speech was not reported, so the context in which this statement was made is missing. However, one begs to disagree with this ridiculous and ludicrous comment on the American intelligence.

First of all, no one has the “right to be stupid,” but everyone has the right to an education, to knowledge, and to be informed. Our poor population is only as intelligent as the education the government wants us to have. In this country we spend money on everything else – war, spying, security, guns, the moon, WMD – but education and taking the poor out of the gutter.

Instead, we feed them propaganda, patriotism, and how to be proud of a country that is rapidly burying them in political filth and ignorance – or democracy and capitalism.

It’s a sad day in this life when a man who could be president tells the world that we have a right to be stupid. Does Sec. Kerry know the meaning of the word “stupid”? If he does and uses it about us then he must hate us very much. If he doesn’t, then he is more stupid than we are because we would not us words that we could not define.

Oh! And the disrespect implied!

One must hope that the people abroad do not think that we Americans are as stupid as our politicians. One hopes that the poor and the proletariat in other countries understand that the poor and the proletariat in the US are also at the mercy of the 1%; at the mercy of their democratically elected members of congress; at the mercy of the Supreme Court; at the mercy of the banks and big businesses, etc. There is no one watching out for the interests of the poor and the proletariat.

It is becoming increasingly clear that members of Congress are far more stupid than the people they represent. They are cunning and greedy, which is no substitute for intelligence.

World, as you are watching and listening, we the people of the US voted for Sec. Kerry, Michele Demented, and all those members of congress. As you can see, they are all more stupid than we the American people are.
