With the exception of one of my best friends, Ian, the population of the state of Texas consists of people who seem to enjoy mainlining a cocktail of Jesus juice and ignorance into their veins. The successful Republican model of miseducation, misinformation and bigotry, is one that should be written on the Texas state flag as its motto, considering the success of Texas politicians such as George Bush, Rick Perry and Louie Gohmert (to name a few).
So I suppose it should come as no surprise to anyone that an uber-hottie/state-certified gun safety instructor in Texas named…wait for it…Crockett Keller, is making a strong bigoted case for Texas to secede from the union. Let me explain..
You see, apparently times are even tough for local gunshop owners, so to make some extra money, Crockett’s been teaching gun certification courses at the shop – Yes, leave it to Texas to allow the certifiably insane to legally certify gun safety.
Anyway, to drum up some business, Crocket decided to run a radio ad – which said the following:
“If you are a non-Christian Arab or Muslim, I will not teach you the class with no shame. If you are a socialist liberal and or voted for the current campaigner in chief, please do not take this class. You have already proven that you cannot make a knowledgeable and prudent decision as under the law.”
Shockingly, his ad has been getting a ton of negative feedback. So when a local ABC affiliate called Crockett to tell his side of the story, he obliged..aaaaaand then said the following:
“I will give up my license to teach before I will teach them. I consider all Muslims our enemies, no matter how nice they are. I could not trust one and I, as an instructor, am not going to teach one how to shoot a gun and aid him in getting a license.”
While it probably doesn’t make much sense to make fun of this obese hillbilly for either his poor usage of the English language or his weird straw nipple-hat, instead let’s make fun of his own lack of understanding anything he fucking says!
In my book, ignorance is a combination of 1) something learned and 2) a lack of knowledge. The only way to educate ignorant people is to let them see how misinformed they are – and the only way to do that is to ask simple questions in order to try to understand how much they actually understand what they’re being ignorant about. Does that make sense?
Wouldn’t it be great if journalists would begin asking these fucktards to define the subjects they’re speaking about? I mean if you have the opportunity to interview someone this ignorant, instead of asking things like ‘Do you understand why some people would be offended by what you’re saying?’ or something, why not ask him to define the world ‘socialist?’ Let him stutter to find answers and eventually realize that he doesn’t actually have a clue what the words out of his mouth mean and, thus, maybe he’ll stop saying them.
I dunno..maybe I’m being naive, but I just wish the media would call people out on their ignorant misinformed bullshit.
Watch the video below..and then watch a hilariously painful example of tea party ignorance at a Sarah Palin book signing, below that.
