Rush’s Ignorant Rant on Ignorance

Rush’s Ignorant Rant on Ignorance February 11, 2013

Erik Rush, the black Worldnutdaily columnist who bizarrely thinks that America suffers from an excess of “negrophilia,” has a column about how ignorant many Americans are. Exhibit A should be himself, as he makes very clear in his first example of this alleged ignorance:

For example, it does not take any advanced training in economics to make the determination that the Obama administration is as fiscally irresponsible as it could possibly be. This is not a wild accusation; the 1974 Budget Act requires Congress to pass a budget each year. Considering just this one instance, it ought to be fairly easy for the informed American of reasonable intellect to infer that there is something dreadfully amiss with a government that has not passed a budget in four years, yet has increased the national debt by trillions of dollars and allows its president to authorize billions in additional spending on an almost weekly basis…

If this hypothetical informed American of reasonable intellect were to take advantage of the unbiased raw data available, he would quickly come to the conclusion that my charge of unprecedented fiscal irresponsibility is indeed accurate.

Unless, of course, that hypothetical informed American knew what Rush clearly does not, that the budgets are passed by Congress, not the executive branch.

Another case in point: The widely-publicized debate within the Boy Scouts of America’s leadership as to whether or not they will maintain their ban on admitting homosexuals into their organization. As reported in WND, on Nov. 28, 2012, former Scoutmaster David Watkins of Virginia was arrested for sodomizing a boy in his troop. One would think this a no-brainer; they need to continue to keep gays out of the BSA.

Let’s take this reasoning out for a walk and see where it goes. The overwhelming majority of child molestation is heterosexual and it is usually committed by either family (about 30%) or friends (about 60%). So: “One would think this is a no-brainer; they need to continue to keep straight men away from their nieces and the female daughters of their friends and neighbors.”

Then, there’s the ongoing discussion and legislation relative to homosexual “marriage.” Like black Klansmen and male sorority sisters, “gay marriage” simply doesn’t exist. Oh, we have monogamous homosexual couples playing house, and certain states issuing marriage licenses to them, but there’s no marriage there. This is because marriage is not a civil union; it’s an ordained one.

Really? So no atheist is actually married either? I am greatly amused when a quarterwit like Rush accuses others of “intellectual indolence” while spouting transparent nonsense like this.
