Today is what would have been the 87th birthday of the Rev. Dr Martin Luther King, Jr. and as we head into the federal holiday on Monday that celebrates his outstanding and all too brief life, it’s time to once again examine his words and speeches that are still as relevant to our lives today as they were when the words were penned and uttered.
Dr King famously said, ‘Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance, and conscientious stupidity’, and the peeps who get called out every Friday for these illustrious TransGriot Shut Up Fool Awards are a living testimony to the wisdom of those words.
So let’s get right to our usual Friday business of calling out the sincerely ignorant and conscientiously stupid people in our midst this week.
Honorable mention number one is John Ritzheimer, the Vanilla ISIS terrorist who got pissed offbecause people have been sending he and his fellow armed malcontents dildoes and 55 gallons of lube instead of the food, money and other stuff they have been begging for online.
Well, boys, how about you give it up and go home like the sheriff and the folks of Burns, OR advised you to?
Honorable mention number two is a group award to the Oscars, for once again on nomination day unveiling a melanin free nomination slate for the second consecutive year despite some amazing 2015 performances from Idris Elba, Will Smith, Michael B. Jordan and movies like Beasts of No Nation, Selma, Creed, and Straight Outta Compton being released.
I guess they have a policy of no Black people get Oscar nominations unless they are playing in a role or producing a movie that demeans African-American people.
Honorable mention number three is the junior senator from Alberta, Ted Cruz, who has had an interesting week trying to tapdance around the fact he wasn’t born here and is probably ineligible to run for POTUS, and after slamming ‘NYC Values’, was revealed to have gotten a $1 million loan for his 2014 senate campaign from Goldman Sachs, where his wife worked.
Honorable mention number four is another group award for all the GOP idiots who have been racistly attacking Gov Haley. FYI for you GOP fools, Haley’s parents were immigrants, but she was born in South Carolina in 1972.
This week’s fool is South Carolina governor Nikki Haley. After she received rave reviews for her SOTU response speech that whacked the Trumpenfuhrer, screwed all that positive publicity up by stating that ‘America has never passed laws based on race or religion’.
Girlfriend, you’re joking, right? Obviously you were asleep in American History class because our history is chock full of far too many examples of policy that is based on religion or race.
Let’s see, slavery, the near extermination of Native Americans from our nations borders, the detention of Japanese Americans during World War II, Jim Crow segregation, Plessy v. Ferguson, Dred Scott v Sandford, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, the Defense of Marriage Act,…
Shall I continue, Gov. Haley?
Oh BTW, Shut up fool!
