WILLFUL IGNORANCE: ‘The practice or act of intentional and blatant avoidance, disregard or disagreement with facts, empirical evidence and well-founded arguements because they oppose or contradict your own existing personal beliefs.’
That’s what we’re dealing with today. WILLFUL IGNORANCE. Whenever you see or hear a Trump supporter trying to justify something utterly ridiculous and you think to yourself, “That person can’t be THAT stupid”, you’re right.
They probably aren’t.
The denial of facts may be frustrating as you try to coax Trumpeters back into reality, try to help them out of the 4th Dimension they reside in. Where ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN are “FAKE NEWS”. That weird world where Trump and Fohx News’ Sean Hannity are telling the truth and
Dan Fucking Rather is lying.
But I know who believes it.
Evidently approximately 30% of the country. The Dirty 30% that constitute Trump’s base.
So you should take all of the racists, militia members, conspiracy theorists, and all around idiots and place them firmly within that 30% circumference. But there are smart people that put themselves in that bubble too. People who disregard reality and choose to roll with alternate facts. People who have purposely planted their flag in the Upside Down.
Me personally I know that anything that Trump says is a lie. That’s automatic. Whatever he says, just believe the direct opposite and 100 times out of 100 you’ll be right. There are people that actually believe Trump’s lying-ass and take his ridiculous words as law. It would be funny but it’s kind of sad. Everytime I see a poll where that hardcore 30% are standing by their lying-ass man I just shake my head.
Not so fast.
It would be real easy to dismiss it all as stupidity. Just scroll on by if that shit shows up on your Twitter time line. Laugh and change the channel when someone pops up on your screen spouting Trumpism. Look at a person defending one of Trump’s idiotic antics, shake your head and walk away. Easy peasy.
Just chalk it up to someone being dropped on their head as a baby and keep it moving.
But these people aren’t brain damaged, as simple as it is to label them as such.
Some of these people are smart as fuck, although their mouths betray that sentiment. As retarded as Sean Hannity sounds, he’s a smart muthafucka. So is Tucker Carlson, Jesse Watters, Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Huckabee-Sanders, and the rest of the Liar’s Club. It pains me to say that, but some of those Trump lovers are pretty bright (except for Steven Miller. That muthafucka is missing a chromosome, and Tomi Lahren the human blow-up doll.) For the sake of argument let’s say that the majority of members of the Trump cult AREN’T
knuckle-draggers that can’t put a sentence together.
So what the fuck is it? What makes someone disregard all facts and regurgitate shit that they know isn’t true?
Man, it’s taking me a really long time to write this piece, because Trump keeps doing dumb shit. Every fucking day this idiot tweets something ridiculous that makes me stop and ask myself, “Do I wanna include that?”
He addressed the violence in Charlottesville, VA. by legitimizing protesting Neo-Nazis, claiming that some of them are good people and saying that counter protestors share the blame for the violence. Proclaimed Alabama’s accussed child molester and Senate candidate Roy Moore’s denials as reason enough to vote for him. He retweets anti-Muslim hate groups, he insults foriegn leaders. All the while his drones line up behind him like storm troopers, bobbing their heads in unison to the sounds of his stupidity.
It’s beyond frustrating to see and hear someone totally unqualified and totally in over his head spout bullshit. It’s more frustrating to see fellow Amerikkkans get the wool pulled over their eyes repeatedly, and blindly defend the very same trickster. Then I came to the realization that they enjoy being blinded and being led around by the sound of Trump’s stupid voice.
No one can be so stupid that they innocently believe the wild shit that comes tumbling out of Trump’s pie hole, right? These people either have no grasp of the English language or they are complicit in Trump’s attempt to create this facade that only he can heal the ills of the world.
Look, Trump is a dumb-ass.
That should be clear to anyone with ears who has been paying attention. Yet and still, that pesky Dirty 30 odd percent still stand behind him defiantly, like a die-hard Cleveland Browns fan who refuses to admit that they suck. They operate with blinders on, blind to the fact that Trump is causing mayhem all over the planet. These are people who watch “The Apprentice” on VHS tapes and marry their own sisters.
Maybe these people aren’t missing a chromosome. Maybe they don’t raise and breed vermin. Maybe they do have WiFi and all of their teeth. Maybe they don’t all listen to Lynryd Skynyrd, drink Busch beer and drive pick-up trucks with gun racks and Confederate flags on the mud flaps.
Some of those delusional muthafuckas work in the cubicle right next to you. They wear Dockers, not stained overalls, and penny loafers, not Doc Marten boots. They sip lattes, play Fantasy Football and drive Audi’s.
And they voted for Trump.
Those are the muthafuckas who you have to worry about. Those people who see the havoc Trump is wreaking across the globe and shut their eyes to it. That nice guy James From Work who goes home, loosens his tie, gets on his iPad and transforms into Deplorable Jim. Yup, that same guy you work next to is a Deplorable. He might not say it at work or wear one of those stupid Make Amerikkka Great hats, but he’s one of them. When he gets home it’s all Fohx News all the time. More importantly, he believes that bullshit. He suspends reality and immerses himself in the FOHX NEWS universe. Its like “The Sunken Place” for white people. Why would a relatively smart human being subject himself to obvious and utterly ridiculous lies? One answer – WILLFUL IGNORANCE. Deplorable Jim knows that Sean Hannity, Jesse Watters, and Tucker Carlson are spouting bullshit, but he WANTS it to be true. He ignores the facts, hunkers down in his echo chamber and let’s the rancid rhetoric of people like Judge Janine wash over him, reinforcing and validating his beliefs. He’s not stupid, he’s just WILLFULLY IGNORANT.
Some people look at WILLFUL IGNORANCE as a defense mechanism, a way to dismiss truth and hold on to lies, stubbornly refusing to recognize reality while living in a conservative fantasy world.
You know, it’s a different type of muthafucka who chants “U-S-A, U-S-A!!!” and doesn’t want to look into a foriegn country meddling in our elections. A person has to be truly special to think that TRUMP’S SON, TRUMP’S CAMPAIGN MANAGER, and TRUMP’S SON IN LAW met with Russians in TRUMP’S BUILDING, TRUMP TOWER concerning TRUMP’S CAMPAIGN and that TRUMP had no? idea.
It takes a unique individual to ignore all of Trump’s promises to build a wall that Mexico would pay for, only to have it morph into Amerikkkan tax dollars footing the bill.
It takes a person of immense faith to believe Trump’s lies that are easily debunked by Google, and to tout a tax plan by a man who won’t release his own taxes.
You have to possess a special talent to keep saying that NFL players were kneeling to protest Amerikkka and the military, even though they’ve been saying from Day One that they were protesting police brutality.
It takes a true unicorn to say that Robert Mueller has had enough time, that his investigation into the Trump campaign should be shut down, that he should be fired.
The investigation into Bill Clinton took almost 1500 days. The Watergate and Benghazi investigations took over 900. Right now Mueller’s investigation is under 300 days, and Trumpeters want it shut down.
They even count different.
WILLFUL IGNORANCE on it’s face looks like it only hurts the practitioner, but that ain’t true. Choosing to act stupid may be even more dangerous than actually being stupid. We can see the effects of WILLFUL IGNORANCE in Amerikkka’s greatest sin – Slavery.
Have you ever seriously sat back and thought about how evil, arrogant, and stupid you have to be to believe that other people are subhuman and should live to serve you? Think about that for a minute. The utter arrogance and stupidity of the “they didn’t know better”, or “it was a different time” defense of slavery. You think they didn’t know better? They acted like we were humanoids, animals, just short of monsters. Let me ask you this; man or woman, would you fuck a Yeti?
Slavemasters would lay with their slaves all the time. They even had babies with them. They knew they were human. Ain’t nobody sticking their dick in a pussy that might have teeth in it. They knew that the only basic difference between their slaves and themselves was their skin color. And let’s just say that all of them didn’t know, that they were that dense.
But I’ll tell you who did know that we’re all the same species-doctors. Yup, Doctors knew. But they all wrapped themselves in a cloak of WILLFUL IGNORANCE so it would be easier to let slavemasters brutalize, abuse, sell and even kill black people.
If they were seen as a lesser form of life, what was the harm? You see how that WILLFUL IGNORANCE shit works?
It’s exactly what these idiots are doing today. I’ll give u an example. Trumpsters keep screaming that “Drain The Swamp” bullshit, acting like Trump’s not the biggest alligator in it. Ignoring former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn sending text messages during Trump’s inauguration, trying to enrich himself, lying to the FBI, failing to register as a foriegn agent and taking money from Turkey and Russia.
Defenders Of Trump acting like the former Secretary of Health and Human Services, Tom Price, didn’t have to resign due to misuse of private jets and military aircraft. They turn a blind eye to the fact that treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin was doing the exact same shit (with military aircraft). Trump’s Trumpeters disregard the fact that this idiot runs his administration like a season of Big Brother or Survivor, with employees leaving every month. Flynn, Price, former Chief Of Staff Reince Priebus, former advisor Sebastian Gorka, former Chief strategist Steve Bannon, former communications director Anthony Scaramucci, former Press Secretary Sean Spicer, former acting AG Sally Yates, former FBI director James Comey, (I do enjoy putting ‘FORMER’ next to their name and title tho) and the latest contestant to get her torch put out on Survivor:WhiteHouse, Omarosa. No one has any idea what the fuck she did in the White House anyway. I would say that her position was Token Black but I think Dr. Ben Carson has that job.
People who support Trump act like it’s normal to have an employee turnover rate like a fast food joint at the highest level of government.
This dumb-ass White House is in turmoil. Who’s next to get the bum’s rush out of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave?
My money is on Secretary Of State Rex Tillerson getting the Timberland next.
He makes way too much sense to stick around on the Trumptanic. I personally don’t think that he’s poorly educated enough to give Trump his blind loyalty, so he’s gotta go.
WILLFUL IGNORANCE allows Trump’s cadre to overlook all of this shit and act as if everything is just honky-dory, like this is the way a White House is supposed to run.
Jesus, it’s hard not to call these people idiots. But remember they all aren’t, they just use selective intelligence.
They can cut that shit on and off. I mean really, who can ignore all the suspicious shit Jared Kushner does? I mean he’s not even supposed to BE IN The White House. He’s married to Ivanka Trump which makes him Trump’s son-in-law, and subject to an anti-nepotism law. The same law that kept Obama from hiring his wife’s brother and his own half-sister during his administration. Lo and behold, Trump IS white so some judge made it possible for Trump to hire both his son-in-law, and his daughter, who is as worthless as big titties on a nun.
Back to this slippery snake Jared; I can’t count the number of times he amended his SF-86 security form to apply for his security clearance, or the fact that he both met with the Russians during the campaign and also instructed Flynn to contact them during the transition. But hey, Trumpeters turn the page on that shit and tout what a great job he’s doing…at whatever the fuck he does. I know he’s supposed to be doing a gang of shit, he’s even charged with bringing peace to the Middle East.
Good luck with that, fuck boy.
The biggest display of either mass lunacy, stupidity, or the use of WILLFUL IGNORANCE as a super power was the election of Trump.
Trump voters had to look past him being the most unqualified candidate ever, his boldface lies, and then they had to overlook his utter stupidity, obvious racism, and the infamous Access Hollywood Tape.
The video tape where Trump himself admitted – once again, this is ON TAPE – not only sexual harrasment but also sexual assault and attempting to cheat on Melania. You heard him profess his love for “just kissing women” – he doesn’t even wait – & grabbing their pussies. All while Billy Bush giggled like a 13 year old girl. Not to mention that Trump detailed how he attempted to cheat on his wife with a married woman, trying to seduce her with furniture.
Billy Bush got fired from Access Hollywood.
Trump got elected to the highest office in the land.
Nevermind the sexual assault allegations leveled against him by upwards of 12 women. Allegations that the tape seems to confirm. They also had to disregard his racist campaign rhetoric, the dog whistles he used gleefully to help divide the country.
Divide and conquer, indeed.
We already discussed his grand Wall, the wall that Mexico was supposed to pay for that suddenly transformed into an Amerikkkan tax-funded project. Trump used a classic con man fraud tactic, the “bait and switch”, and Deplorables acted like he never claimed that Mexico would underwrite his precious partition. Not to mention that he refused to disclose his own taxes, claiming that he was under an audit. All of that shit was of no? consequence. People just pushed their WILLFUL IGNORANCE buttons, a dazed look came over their faces, a glassy look in their eyes, and they began to drool.
This enabled them to pull the lever for a compulsive liar and all around dickhead. No? matter how stupid he is, the fact remained that he was a rich white man, and his opponent a rich white woman. Of course sexism played into Trump’s victory, also Republican hatred for the name “Clinton”. The Russians meddling in the election to harm HRC and help Trump was also a factor, as was Hillary’s decision not to visit some states, like Wisconsin. The impact of then FBI director James Comey disclosing that he was reopening the investigation into Clinton’s Benghazi emails days before the election can’t be understated either.
It was a perfect storm that Trumpeters used as justification for them hitting themselves over the head with clubs until their brains were mushy enough to pledge allegiance to Komrade Trump. The end result was absurd – no?, it was obscene.
Some white Amerikkkan’s that cant even open child-proof aspirin elected the most immoral Presidential candidate ever. Amerikkka immediately surrendered it’s moral high ground, and began to wallow in the mud, like pigs on Orwell’s animal farm. The “president” insulted everyone in earshot and Tweetshot, both enemy and ally, and Trump’s supporters waved it off. They stuck their fingers in their ears, rolled their eyes back and stuck their tongues out.
WILLFUL IGNORANCE wins again!
Their shining white (orange) knight could do no? wrong. The prince of white privilege was here to stay! Trump recently signed into law his crowning (and only) legislative achievement.
90 something percent of Republicans support Trump’s tax plan. Do you realize how stupid that is? Supporting the tax plan of a con artist who won’t release his own taxes? We don’t know how this plan really impacts Trump personally but we can assume that he makes out like a bandit. Trump said that New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft called him, expressing his love for the bill. Well, I’m sure he did, his tax rate just went from 37% to 21%.
What’s not for Kraft to love?
I see about 10 companies that are benefitting from the tax plan giving out $1000 bonuses to all of their employees.
What I wanna know is are they gonna give those $1000 tax relief checks forever? That’s how long the tax cut is for companies and the wealthiest Amerikkkans – FOREVER.
For everybody else it ends in 2025.
WILLFUL IGNORANCE also shields the eyes from glaring hypocrisy. Trump’s frequent visits to his golf courses; 36 days at Mar-A-Lago and over 80 total visits to his golf properties. Remember when he said he would never go golfing if he were elected president? That he would be too busy working? Well, apparently that shit went out the window as soon as he made it into the White House.
That orange muthafucka started calling Mar-A-Lago the Winter White House (what? What the fuck is he talking about?) and saying he’s on “working vacations” when he’s there or any of his other spots. Huh?
Muthafucka either you’re working or you’re on vacation.
It’s either or, not both. Since you’re on a golf course wearing one of your patented dumb ass hats I’m gonna say that you’re on vacay, dickface.
Trump lovers don’t see it like that. They rub their Pendants Of WILLFUL IGNORANCE and they can’t see Trump bamboozling them again, out on the links trying to make a
hole-in-one while Kim Jong Un is out testing missiles, trying to put a hole in Amerikkka.
Goddammit he just did some new shit. Now it’s been reported that during a meeting about Nigerian and Haitian immigrants Trump said that all Haitians have AIDS. As for the Nigerians, he said that after they lived in Amerikkka they would never return to their “huts”. Of course the White House says it’s not true. When Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders says something isn’t true that just about guarantees that it is.
You know Trump said that shit. Just like he asked Comey for a “loyalty pledge”. That sounds just like his dumb-ass.
I’m sure the Trump cheerleaders will shake their pom-poms and start their chant- “T-R-U-M-P!!!!” They’ll put on their red caps of WILLFUL IGNORANCE, their minds will go totally blank, and they can “Deny, deny, deny!” I can hear them now; “But Hillary…”, “Obama did…”, and then it will devolve into a din of Republican talking points; “Benghazi!” “emails!” “Chicago!” The usual bullshit. All meant to deflect from whatever issue is plaguing Trump at the moment.
You know what? I’m ending this. Trump keeps doing dumb-shit and I just can’t keep up. As if it already isn’t bad enough that he golfs more than Jordan Spieth, now he’s got a box truck trying to block the press from getting footage of him on the links. Doesn’t this nincompoop realize that he’s just making this shit worse? I’m gonna let these people continue to use their shields of WILLFUL IGNORANCE to deflect the truth that surrounds them. They can keep playing pretend whenever that idiot does something stupid and act like it didn’t happen.
They can keep defending Trump everytime he says something reprehensible,
shrugging off his racist or misogynistic comments with a “Oh, he didn’t mean it.”
These people wear their Mask’s Of The Poorly Educated so that they can validate any of his absurd claims. He’s the biggest liar and hypocrite the world has ever seen and Deplorables think that he’s making Amerikkka great.
Trump is making Amerikkka unstable. This country hasn’t been this divided since the Civil War. Other countries see that and seize on it, poking and proding Amerikkka’s armor, looking for a way in, a way to disrupt our way of life. Trump hasn’t made us safer, he’s made us vulnerable and a target. I understand that Republicans like big business and supposed smaller government and all that shit. They love watching the stock market reach new highs and unemployment hit 17 year lows. Of course Trump takes credit for all of that, when Barack Obama actually set the trajectory that has the Dow hitting these heights. We know that what goes up eventually must come down, that’s a fact of life. I’m curious to see what form of WILLFUL IGNORANCE Trump will employ when the DJI starts to tumble. Should be interesting.
This “presidency” should be aborted, pun intended. (By the way, if you’re against abortion, then don’t have one. Quit worrying about everybody else). Trump is an abomination, he stands on the world stage and the rest of the globe is transfixed, a bright orange clown with Amerikkka as his circus. And just like any other clown some people are scared of him and some people think that he’s hilarious. You can be as WILLFULLY IGNORANT as you want to be but that’s the fact. Amerikkka is no longer respected around the planet. Our allies look at the USA and Trump perplexed, bewildered, and terrified. Our enemies look at the same thing and are overjoyed and amused, Amerikkka being led astray by a court jester who thinks he’s an emperor.
Too bad the WILLFUL IGNORANCE force field won’t allow 30% of the country to see this.
The more that I think about it, maybe this whole WILLFUL IGNORANCE thing is wrong.
Maybe Trump supporters are all just stupid as fuck.
P.S. Rep. Devin Nunes is a Russian spy and should be executed.
This just in: At the end of a statement to S.Korea, Kim Jong Un said that he has the nuclear button on his desk. How did Trump respond? With something dignified and presidential?
Trump replied that his nuclear button “IS BIGGER” and “IT WORKS”. I’ll leave the psychoanalysis of that statement to students of Freudian slips, but it appears pretty obvious to me. Just by him saying that shows a lack of self awareness that’s almost scary.
Trump thinks he’s fucking He-Man, and he’s alot more like Cringer.
That wasn’t it tho, he also tweeted that he was going to give out FAKE NEWS awards. Is this muthafucka serious? That’s a Comedy Central skit, not something the president talks about doing. This guy is a fucking retard.
The media is complicit too. Call his lies what they are. He didn’t “MISSPEAK”, he fucking LIED. He lies all the time. Call his statements exactly what they are LIES.
The media gotta stop giggling and shit when Trump calls them “Fake News”, and when Huckabee-Sanders stands at the podium shoveling bullshit at them.
Hold these fucks accountable, don’t smile and hope they give you a reach around while they fuck you.
To top it all off, former Chief Strategist Steve Bannon has written a book, where he calls the meeting between the Russians and Donald Trump Jr. “TREASONOUS”. Bannon also disparages Trump’s stupid-ass family in the book, with good reason.
Let’s see the Dirty 30% use WILLFUL IGNORANCE top defend all of this idiocy.
