Can the stupidization succeed?

We go back to that VDH piece on the infantilizing of the last 2 generations by the universities: “To object to such hucksterism was proof of one’s own racism, sexism, and homophobia.” Want proof? Okay, how’s this: “the share of Americans calling global climate change a major threat to the well-being of the United States has grown from 40% in 2013 to 57% this year“. 57% idiots, okay then. We agree with the Right’s new Paul Krugman that Warren is the perfect vessel for today – lots of energy and the proven willingness to say any absurd thing if it advances her ambitions.

It would be nice if this was all a Commie Plot to bring down the USA and the West, since it could be reversed, but alas, it appears to be home grown and deep. As proof of how far on the other side of the divide we’re on, unlike shrieking CNN and MSNBC, we see the president as ordinary in this sense: an ordinary highly successful real estate entrepreneur, who is comfortable making large decisions, and has the plusses of being very entertaining and punching back when attacked. Certainly no one to get hysterical about.

Next year should tell us a lot about how deep the rot is in the country.

    “Even as the era of “small wars” is seemingly on the wane environmental concerns especially among the elite are rising to panic bordering on despair. Sixteen-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg speaking at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting at Davos said without batting an eye “adults keep saying we owe it to the young people, to give them hope, but I don’t want your hope. I don’t want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day.”

    A gizzard churning fear has gripped climate activists. Johnathan Franzen writing in the New Yorker says it’s already too late for most people. “During the Protestant Reformation … ‘end times’ was merely an idea, not the horribly concrete thing it is today.”

    . . . To those who are convinced not even modern civilization itself will survive the pyre of climate change.”

    57%, huh? That sure is a lot, maybe I’m wrong to be skeptical. All those folks must know something I don’t. Say, didn’t the Pew polling have Clinton winning by a landslide?
