Skip to comments.How these gibbering numbskulls came to dominate Washington (moonbat alert)
Posted on 10/28/2008 8:16:23 AM PDT by Parmenio
How was it allowed to happen? How did politics in the US come to be dominated by people who make a virtue out of ignorance? Was it charity that has permitted mankind's closest living relative to spend two terms as president? How did Sarah Palin, Dan Quayle and other such gibbering numbskulls get to where they are? How could Republican rallies in 2008 be drowned out by screaming ignoramuses insisting that Barack Obama was a Muslim and a terrorist?
Like most people on my side of the Atlantic, I have for many years been mystified by American politics. The US has the world's best universities and attracts the world's finest minds. It dominates discoveries in science and medicine. Its wealth and power depend on the application of knowledge. Yet, uniquely among the developed nations (with the possible exception of Australia), learning is a grave political disadvantage.

Then stay on your side of the Atlantic. I had an ancestor at Bunker Hill. Yeah, the whites of YOUR eyes.
Mine would be as well.
shecstnuts = chestnuts. Sheesh, I’m a gibbering numbskull!
Summary: Americans are brainwashed ignorant fundamentalists, failures at every level of education, politics, science, responsible for all the worlds ills, led by stupid politicians like Reagan, Bush, Palin.
Yawn. I was reading this same bullshit from him 4 years ago. Must be nice to be able to recycle the same tired crap year after year and never have to bother to reassess your opinions.
Ugh. The Guardian is probably the most mainstream, RED rag in
These are people who accept existence as a Subject of the Crown as the highest individual human capacity. Imagine them lecturing a Free Citizen....

Thanks a lot for your help, Guardian.
He's a former muslim and has said as much in his book. He was not raised as a Christian, his mother was an atheist and his fathers were non-observant muslims, his grandparents who raised him were non-observant methodist and non-observant baptist.
He's advocated some radical extremist terrorism in Africa and embraced a domestic terrorist. He's been endorsed by Islamic terrorists and called a muslim by Qaddaffi and others.
But for me, above all the rest of this, is his Marxist ideology.
He's running a stealth campaign. He isn't running on issues. He's running on image and hype and lies.
Is Monbiot french for moonbat?
They dont' "get" our Constitution, our declaration that government is not the solution to our problems, that private industry can innovate solutions and devices where there is a financial reward for blood,sweat, tears, determination, and risk of capital.
On behalf of all Brits everywhere, I apologise unreservedly for this article.
The only consolation is that Monbiot (is he really the reason “moonbat” came about?) is so utterly off-beam, unfair, prejudiced and elitist that only “gibbering numbskulls” could possibly swallow his drivel.
Just remember...the British WON the battle of Bunker Hill :)
The left isa nut house full of gibbering numbskulls with large egos who literally do not pay any attention to who their political allies are.
And just like our side of the pond, the moonbats seem to get more than their fair share of ink.
Careful, with that level of accuracy and sarcasm you could be working for the Guardian.
George Monbiot.....almost Moonbat!
“They dont’ “get” our Constitution, our declaration that government is not the solution to our problems, that private industry can innovate solutions and devices where there is a financial reward for blood,sweat, tears, determination, and risk of capital.”
Doesn’t look like most Americans do now either.
What was your roll in this, if you had none you should not offer an apology. If you wish to condeme this statement, then by all means do.
Don't forget to view the Comments section; this open, running sore of an article oozes on there.
he sounds like an original moonbat.
Gyppo pikey wog bastard!
We tend to forget that George Orwell, when he wrote 1984, modeled it on the BBC, of which the Guardian is somewhat of a stepchild.
Mr. Moonbat is accurately summarizing the thoughts of the British elites for our entertainment.
The US is a meritocracy, yours is not.
I never knew that. Very interesting.
Whether we like it or not, we are all representatives, of our nation, of our religion, of our race, of our culture, of our gender. I don’t condone the article at all, but I am a representative of the culture that produced it, and therefore I feel a need to apologise for the attitudes that spawned it, or at least the passive aquiescence by those of us dont rate it at all.
After all, at least a third of the responses to this article are widening their criticism beyond the points raised by the article, are they not?
