Obama Feeds ‘The Cult of Stupidity’

“We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium to longer term to go after the root causes that lead people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs …”

– State Department representative Marie Harf

I wonder if others found the opening statement as curious as did I; this was the State Department’s Marie Harf discussing the administration’s policy in fighting the militant Muslim group ISIS in a recent interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews.

It was my understanding that nations essentially did kill their way out of wars; you do enough damage to the other side (killing them and breaking their stuff), and either they give up, or the question is rendered academic.

Somewhat surprisingly, Matthews was actually dismissive of Harf’s assertion that job opportunities (no doubt via American taxpayers’ investment in the primitive toilets these people call nations) would ameliorate 1,400 years of institutionalized cultural depravity.

Harf, by the way, is not to be confused with State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki, who we usually get to see during the frequent State Department press briefings. Psaki typically handles the really big lies and misrepresentations – like last week, when she told reporters that “refugees” from Syria, Somalia and other war-torn majority Muslim countries who the administration is bringing into the U.S. by the thousands were “the most carefully vetted of all travelers to the United States.” These are among the same nations upon which her boss has dumped the Miracle-Gro of Islamofascism: billions in armaments and cash.

Back in November, people went absolutely nuts when a video surfaced of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber calling American voters “stupid,” but the sad fact is that there’s a segment of any population that’s going to be stupid. Among American voters, you also have those who aren’t necessarily stupid, but are so uninformed or ill-informed as to be operationally stupid, if you will.

The likelihood that these individuals will be consumers of establishment press sources (mainstream media) exclusively is a foregone conclusion. This ensures that they will be exposed only to sanitized, White House-approved versions of the coverage on terrorist activities, crafted expressly for the cult of stupidity.
