Top Idiots of the Week – 22 Nov 2020

Cartoonist Rob Rogers, who was fired for drawing cartoons that were critical of Trump, drew the above cartoon this past week to make this point …
Medical experts are all saying the same thing: avoid the family super spreader and host a “virtual” Thanksgiving this year. https://robrogers.com/2020/11/14/thanksgiving/…

We are awash with rather a lot of idiots embracing utterly absurd conspiracy claims as “truth”, and so we have a rampant pandemic rapidly spiralling out of control.

What can we do?

Fun thought experiment.

  • Start a rumour that the vaccine is going to be deployed via aircraft spraying it over cities
  • Whisper via the alt-right networks that you can resist this by wearing a mask
  • Sit back and watch the fun as the idiots try to work out what to do

What daft claims have popped up this past week?

Let’s take a look at some of the truly jaw dropping highlights that illustrates that the most common commodity that is available in abundance is stupidity.

Proclamations from the last 7 days

The Cult Of Trump

The Election

QAnon

  • Mark Taylor Claims Talk of a COVID Vaccine Is Code for Trump’s Plans to Arrest the ‘Cabal’
    • Mark’s area of expertise is in being wrong all the time about absolutely everything.
    • You might wonder how he, and many others, come to terms with their “prophecy” of a Trump win being wrong? Basically like this – In the past week he also claims that Trump won the election in a landslide “in the spirit” and now it’s up to Christians to engage in spiritual warfare “to bring this thing to fruition.” … and yes, those that lap up all this guy says really are stupid enough to buy this.

Conspiracy claims

  • ‘Million MAGA March’ Draws Thousands in Gathering of ​Pro-Trump Conspiracy Theorists
    • Fact Check: The “Million” MAGA march was only thousands. As is usual, these folks simply can’t count.
  • After attending the Million MAGA March in Washington, D.C., Dave Daubenmire has concluded that “the leader of our movement is Alex Jones.
    • If your “leader” is a grifter who cons gullible people, you really are in deep trouble.
  • Mario Murillo explains that he believes every unsubstantiated and unverified claim of voter fraud put forth by the Trump campaign based mainly on the fact that the media dismisses it all as nonsense.
    • Clearly evidence and facts are evil wicked things and a heresy that needs to be cast out by this scamvangelist.
  • Rick Wiles says the United States is facing a Satanic communist takeover that will crush the church and Christians must therefore prepare themselves to be gunned down in the streets as they resist.
    • They play this trope every election season to manipulate those that are religious. The rather obvious fact that conflicts with this this claim is the observation that Biden is a deeply committed Catholic and Harris is a deeply committed Baptist.

COVID-19

The Prophets

Truly Bizarre

  • Terri Pearsons insists that God is up in Heaven laughing at the wickedness of those who mocked her father, televangelist Kenneth Copeland, for laughing at the media for declaring that Biden had won the presidency.
    • Translation: My imaginary friend is laughing at you for mocking my idiot dad.
  • Robert Henderson claims that Kamala Harris is driven by “the Antichrist spirit.”
    • On the plus side, at least he correctly referred to her as “Vice President-elect” while doing so.
  • Gordon Klingenschmitt warns that Joe Biden intends to “transgenderize” the military because “the devil wants an atheist army for the Antichrist.
    • I suspect Gordon would be delighted with the concept of an army of Christian Soldiers marching off to war and carrying the Cross of Jesus on shields. He could even stop referring to military operations and instead call them crusades. Given how well that all worked out last time, I’d sure it would be just fine.
  • Greg Stephens thinks that restrictions on Thanksgiving gatherings is a violation of the Third Amendment
    • Huh!… ??? … that’s the amendment that prohibits the quartering of soldiers in private homes.

What other Idiots popped up last week?

As always, it is an endless stream. Some of it is good, some sad, some is rather grim, and some is quite frankly hilarious. Here are a few more samples of Swivel-Eyed religious fanatics …
