… Say Goodnight Gracie (Part Five)
The smartest people in the world did not lead us to Where We Are Right Now.
Ever since the shitshow ended last week there has been a plethora of polite analyses about What The Fuck Just Happened. Desperate pundits are trying to be reasonable while describing how and why Fucko the Clown just won the election.
This is what Denial looks like:
The hubris of Hillary Clinton and the DNC empowered them to steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders because not only did she “deserve” the presidency, but they believed she could beat Fucko in the general election. Clinton, the DNC, and their donors, completely underestimated, or ignored, the Hillary hatred that has been simmering for decades, as well as the contempt voters have for establishment politics.
True. But the most insidious form of denial is always true. But it is not the whole truth. That is why denial is a complete waste of time and doesn’t solve anything. It is always easier to accept and believe a partial truth because it is a distraction that keeps us from recognizing the larger, more uncomfortable truth.
Occam’s razor. Noun. The maxim that assumptions introduced to explain a thing must not be multiplied beyond necessity.
Let’s see how it works.
59,821,874 Americans voted for Fucko the Clown; therefore, there are 59,821,874 Crazy Stupid People in the United States. Regardless of the fact that the previous sentence sounds like a harsh generalization … it is not. The only way anyone could vote for Fucko is if he/she is a Crazy Stupid Person. Rational smart people could not vote for, would never vote for, anyone like Fucko the Clown. So … from the Department of Redundancy Department: Say Goodnight Gracie (Part Five).
