Why We Need To Start Slapping People Again
Ridiculopathy ^ | 12/7/09 | Phil Boisenbottom

Posted on 12/08/2009 1:28:36 PM PST by steve-b

2009 will probably go down as the Year of Stupid. Everywhere you look you see birthers, deathers, deniers, tea fetishists, and semi-literate amateur pundits screaming and frothing over their unsupported, repeatedly debunked line of argument. They are wrong. Dead wrong. Distractingly, even dangerously wrong. And since they will not, or more likely cannot, understand this fact they go on screaming and frothing in a fruitless quest for validation. They'll disrupt town hall meetings, Congressional addresses, and children's birthday parties to remind you, just in case you allowed yourself to forget for even a moment, of just how painfully stupid they really are.

Clearly, stupidity has always been with us. It would probably be accurate to say that stupidity is our natural state as human animals and that we separate ourselves from less capable species only through our ability to move past it. But in this age of cable news and Internet anonymity we have lost that tenuous connection between ignorance and shame....

The problem, it seems, is that we have indulged our stupidest citizens either because we wish to avoid the hassle and conflict or for pure entertainment value. We have treated them like indulged children, so it should not surprise us when they eventually behave like them....

We're going to have to start slapping people again....

Example 1: "Captain! Captain, we're all going to die!" *slap* "OK. I'll get the fire extinguisher."

Example 2: "Why won't the President show us his real birth certificate?" *slap* "OK."

Example 3: "So, that email thing says that global warming is officially a hoax-" *slap*

Example 2: “Why won’t the President show us his real birth certificate?” *slap* “OK.”

Example 3: “So, that email thing says that global warming is officially a hoax-” *slap*


So the asshat writing this lumps in those of us that know that AGW is a hoax with “birfers?” Well ain’t that just f*cking outstanding.

Interesting that he sees no need to explain why the positions he derides are stupid. We’re supposed to just take his word for it.

I believe this POV is commonly known as “stupid.”

Put simply, Sarah Palin needs to be slapped. Vigorously. Slap that greasy, clueless smirk off her stupid camera-ready face. Then move right on to slapping the chalk-white crap out of former VP Dick Cheney. And keep on slapping until he stops mumbling about nonexistent weapons of mass destruction. If there is any hope for them or their kind, she will thank you eventually.

Might want to alert the Secret Service about this guy.

Yeah, but technically you'd have to slap his parents for that one. But I get your point.

Boisenbottom............ I bet Bart Simpson could make a whole episode out of that one!

2009 will probably go down as the Year of Stupid. Everywhere you look you see [PC Nazis, warmists, socialists, GLBT fetishists, and semi-literate amateur pundits such as David Brooks and Kathleen Parker] screaming and frothing over their unsupported, repeatedly debunked line of argument. They are wrong. Dead wrong. Distractingly, even dangerously wrong. And since they will not, or more likely cannot, understand this fact they go on screaming and frothing in a fruitless quest for validation.

Let them start it—I know many who are just waiting for the opportunity to defend themselves against physical attack. They’re not stupid—they’re well informed about what is going on in this country with leftists—we say, go ahead and slap.

But the evidence supports the allegations of fraud on part of climate-change research; further, why shouldn’t someone be concerned over the possible and/or probable violation of the Constitution (it is, after all, THE supreme law of the land... if it means nothing then ALL subordinate laws ALSO mean nothing).

*sigh* — Why can’t people apply a LITTLE logic / cause-and-effect-thought to things?

But in this age of cable news and Internet anonymity we have lost that tenuous connection between ignorance and shame.

This is probably the most salient point -- it is too easy to respond to anyone who raises inconvenient facts with a crude "U R A TROLL" screed (as I know from experience).

The guy is writing with blinders on, and has no idea that the blinders are there.

I don't believe he's heard of something called Amendment One to the US Constitution.

Besides, I think the SEIU is taking care of the slapping other people around for him.

Dad Slapped at Starbucks: Brooklyn Heights Justice or Just Plain Crazy?

How about a silly little metro getting slapped?

This dispatch just in from a BHB tipster claiming that a Brooklyn Heights Dad got a schmack on the head from another patron at the Montague Street Starbucks. Allegedly, the smacker felt that the smackee was not parenting properly by ignoring his fidgety baby while waiting on a latte. Do we call it instant justice or is it past the legal limit? Full eyewitness account after the jump:

I was in the Montague St Starbucks at 10:20 am today, maybe 10:25. A man outside had a baby in an upright-type stroller and was speaking with a woman who seemed very concerned. It seems that his child was fussing in the stroller while the man ( who I will call “Dad”) was waiting for his drink. When the baby kept crying another man complained to Dad: when Dad did not leave and stayed to wait for his drink, the non-dad man slapped Dad on the back of the head.

Now, I did not see this, but was there immediately afterward. Not only the woman outside with Dad, but the employees and other customers (including child-free individuals) were 99% on Dad’s side. (Only one man seemed to disagree, but he quickly demurred when reminded that one adult should not hit another over this, no matter how aggravating it should be.)

The police were called and the manager and an employee went out and spoke w/them and Dad. The Slapper was out of there by then, but I hope the store
security camera was on. I have seen frequent out-of-control behavior there, but this child was not crying, just looking cranky, when I saw him and he was in the stroller. Actually, I think the baby /toddler was in the stroller the entire time. Thankfully, Dad was very rational and saw no need to start the Thrilla on Montanilla. (It’s Monday, and I’ve had a lot of I coffee, so please pardon my literary excesses.) Slapper had left by the time I got there.

This did not seem to be egregious parental behavior. I have an elementary-school-aged child, and have been in situations like this. I always left the store if my kid got too cranky or loud; doing it once or twice seemed to alert the child to the consequences of misbehaving in an adult public place. One adult hitting another over this kind of thing like this is certainly egregious behavior to me.
