Jimmy Kimmel did some on-the-street interviews on Hollywood Blvd. with people about the “Sequester.”
These aren’t low-information voters; they are no-information voters. They are clueless. They vote in terms of race, feelings, and what other people are telling them. Actually, it’s worse.
The most frightening part of what you’ll see in this three-minute video is how they go on even after admitting that they don’t know anything about what the Sequester is.
One day these people will have children. The gene pool is beginning to grow algae.
We are witnessing a world that is depicted in the 2006 film Idiocracy where “advertising, commercialism, and cultural anti-intellectualism have run rampant and dysgenic1 pressure has resulted in a uniformly stupid society devoid of intellectual curiosity, social responsibility, and coherent notions of justice and human rights.”
Even when one woman said she didn’t know about the Sequester, she continued to ramble on about a Sequester being “like a terrorist . . . so they’re building like a robot terrorist” in North Korea. Of course, this was a bad thing.
It’s not hard to understand how people like Nancy Pelosi (we have to pass the bill to know what’s in it), Sheila Jackson Lee (“I stand here as a freed slave because this Congress came together”), Maxine Waters (170 million jobs could be lost due to Sequestration), and Hank “Guam Will Tip Over” Johnson get re-elected even after they say stupid things. In fact, I think their vote totals increase every time they add to their repertoire of absurdities.
It's funny, but these people vote.
