This is more of the same vain mistake -- that people are "stupid" if they have a different political opinion.

Obama, the Harvard fellow with the secret SAT and LSAT scores, made almost every foreign policy error possible.

His weakness was such he couldn't even say "Islamic terrorism."

johnforbes makes the same vain mistake -- not understanding that even stupid people have political opinions.
Some of those opinions must be "stupid" and it's OK to say so when they are.

johnny, fully HALF of the human race has IQs below 100, and lots of them are belligerently insistent on their uninformed political opinions.
But you probably don't want them running the country. Trump is no Sancho Panza.

Trump is willfully ignorant, he says so himself, and that's definitely "stupid" for a President.
It isn't even a matter of opinion any longer. He clearly doesn't know what he's doing in the job.

Or don't you watch the news?

It is true that stupid people have political opinions.

But the central conceit of the Left is that their opinions are "smart" and others are not.

It is the central flaw in political discussion.

It isn't surprising that so many people pat themselves on the back, but then Left Wingers do that a lot.

You see, this is exactly what the left does.
They loudly and frequently insist that a thing is so.
They loudly and frequently insist that EVERY ONE knows that it's so, and that anyone who believes otherwise, in fact that does not wholeheartedly buy into every single aspect of the approved party line is stupid.
They get their friends in the media and glamorous Hollywood elites (who know little except how to play make believe) to advocate their cause and the sheep that make up their constituency blindly follow along bleating what they've been told to bleat.
And when they don't get their way, the party that advertises themselves as advocating peace, love, harmony, inclusion, diversity and respect goes wild, burning, destroying and now shooting anyone who dares disagree.

And they are now very near the line beyond which good people will no longer put up with their shit.

After that, and the day is coming, they will be very, very sorry.

Apparently it is "the central conceit of the Right" that criticizing Trump is the same thing as criticizing the Right.

johnforbes overlooks the fact that the article was not about the Right, or even any of the ideas of the Right, but about Trump himself, his vision of himself, and about his decision making.

Thus the article does not demonstrate johnny's alleged "central conceit of the Left" at all.
If johnforbes would bother to read the things set before him before venturing a stupid political opinion about it, he would know this without having to be told.

Notice that Insipid couldn't refute anything in the article.

You see, this is exactly what the Right does.
They loudly and frequently deflect from the salient points of a discussion with militantly partisan talking points because they have nothing else to offer.

Like johnforbes, Insipid just starts to yammer mindlessly, ignoring the topic because, though he knows he disagrees with it, he can't make an intelligent argument against it.

The backlash is starting. Take care snowflakes, you've chosen the means of your own destruction.

PROTESTER INTERRUPTS TRUMP ASSASSINATION PLAY IN CENTRAL PARK! SCREAMING “STOP LIBERAL VIOLENCE! — GOEBBELS WOULD BE PROUD! — YOU’RE A NAZI CROWD!!!”The Shakespeare in the Park rendition of Julius Caesar is still scheduled to play this weekend in Central Park after the shooting of GOP Rep. Scalise by a devout Bernie Sanders supporter.

Delta Airlines and Bank of America have reportedly dropped their support for the play in the wake of public outrage over the play’s depiction of Trump’s assassination.

Tonight the performance did not go as planned.
