Useless Idiots

It never ceases to amaze us how stupid some people are. As much as we’d like to think man is the most intelligent being on planet earth, specific examples of homo sapiens often do such pinheaded things that we wind up thinking platypuses are far wiser. And don’t even get us started on Tony Danza.

One can easily find instances of human imbecility. Take, for example, the “website” of a California organization called the Peace and Justice Center of Sonoma County. Thanks to James Taranto’s mention on “The Best of the Web,” we, the crack young staff of “The Hatemonger’s Quarterly,” decided to find out more about this outfit.

And—lo and behold!—it’s a group made up of complete ninnies. We’re talking Grade-A chumps here. People whose intellect can’t match Jessica Simpson’s.

As a perusal of their low-budget digs demonstrates, the nitwits at the Peace and Justice Center of Sonoma County have taken it upon themselves to urge all American soldiers to leave the military. You read that right: All American soldiers to defect, go AWOL, or otherwise resign from the US military.

This, think the folks at the Peace and Justice Center of Sonoma County, will bring us closer to world peace. Not the dismantlement of al Qaeda, but the end of America’s self-defense. Now, if you ask us, this stance positively begs this little multiple-choice question:

If the United States had no military at all, the following would be more likely to occur:

(A) Peace on earth for every man, woman, and child.

(B) A hellish nightmare in which brutal dictators scheme to destroy the prosperous West and steal its riches unimpeded, bringing untold misery to billions of people.

Now, that should be a simple question to answer, we think. And, if you answered (A), congratulations: You’re officially a complete imbecile. You’re so dumb you ought to ride the short bus to school and never take off your helmet, even though you’re not on the team.

If you ask us, then, anyone signed up with the Peace and Justice Center of Sonoma Country—whether a permanent resident of Sonoma County or not—is a complete nincompoop. We’re talking Paris Hilton dumb.

But it gets even better. Right above their “website’s” clarion call for US soldiers to get out of the military, the Peace and Justice “website” offers the following message: “Act to stop the Genocide in Darfur.”

Uh, wouldn’t we need a military to do that? A couple of troops might come in handy. After all, we have a hard time believing the Sudanese government will cave in to the demands of a hippie enclave with a low-fi “website.”
