I Submit That It Is Not Possible To Pile the Stupid as High as This Expert Level Stupid Piler Has Piled the Stupid

Home - by - December 24, 2012 - 16:30 America/New_York - 39 Comments

I post this picture of Amitai Etzioni as a public service, so that if you encounter this creature in the wild you will not get close enough for the stupid to somehow get on you.

I’m sure The Huffington Compost is proud to have this “professor” writing for them. I will not link. You have to trust me that I am not making this up. It will be difficult, but trust me. This guy wrote everything I am about to post.

We should not wait for our elected officials, in President Obama’s good words, “to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics.” We should do our share. One way to proceed is to mark our homes, apartments and condos, with a “gun free” sign. Parents should notify their friends that they would be reluctant to send their child over for a play date unless the home was safe from guns. Residential communities should pass rules that ban bringing guns onto their premises, clearly marking them as gun free.

Please, remove your jaws from your laps. There’s more. Professor Peabrain offers his rebuttals to oft-cited refrains from self-defense advocates.

“The right to private gun ownership is guaranteed by the Constitution.”

• No right is absolute. We can limit gun ownership to people who have neither criminal nor mental health records and ban assault rifles for starters.

“Criminals would obtain guns anyway.”

True, dangerous people may still be able get their hands on weapons if tighter gun control laws are passed, but certainly less will do so when it is illegal.

I think we should start with banning the title “professor,” which is seemingly all too easy to obtain. Those loopholes need to be tightened.

    Mr. Hat,

    I’m all for it: “… mark our homes, apartments and condos, with a “gun free” sign.”

    That’ll make it easier for the thugs, rapists, and murderers to pick out the easy meat and leave me alone.

    I agree with the professor. I think it’s a great way to reduce the progtard population.

    Let them suffer the stupidity of their ideas and be murdered at the hands of the scum they defend.

    Professors tend to live in pollyanna world, and frequently things like common sense completely elude them. And, as the Virginia Tech incident showed, sometimes with tragic consequences.

    I can still remember, a long time ago, sitting in class as a university freshman, listening to some professors drone on about this social issue or that, and thinking “this can’t be right.” And as subsequent experience has shown, it wasn’t.

    Here’s another moronic Ph.D. with a professoral tenure:

    “One important lesson of Newtown that I wished I heard more people emphasizing: even if only “good” people had guns (as though we could identify such people ahead of time), the person who owns the gun may not be the person who uses the gun. The person who owns the gun may even be the person who is killed by the gun. Any claim that we need more guns needs to address this issue head on or it’s not even worth a moment’s consideration.”

    :shock:

    I does not even make any sense, unless you’re living in some kind of K. Dick nightmare.

    I wish Mr. Etzioni would come troll these ridiculous notions here at iOTW. So that we could have mounds and mounds of fun turning him into a crazed multiple personalitied puddle of goo. In this instance, he would truly be deserving. He can tag team with Piers Morgan.

    I used to be polite to old assholes like this because of the respect your elders thing. Then at one point in time I came to the sudden realization that an old Moron is just a previous young Moron that was incapable of learning. I like what Rush has to say about these old fools out of academia. They are pissed at the world because they are more educated then everyone else and therefore should earn more. And they don’t.

    My friend Bill Has a sign in his yard in a “tough” section of the County. It shows a pistol pointed straight at the viewer. The sign says “Fuck the dog, beware of the owner.”

    Here’s what another ole’ moron wrote, the FOOL:

    “You know what’s one of the most interesting common characteristics of our illustrious [Founding] founders? They’re dead. All of them. Dead and buried around two centuries ago. That means they don’t live here anymore. We do. So I would suggest we do the best we can in making the kind of world we actually want to live in, and stop fawning and groveling around the totems of the ancestor-gods.”

    Wow, that’s an excellent view-point, Claudia; many thanks; you are spot on, I should think. I suspect there is indeed a very strong affect against the Bible in this milieu; maybe also some irrational instinct to defend the filthy koran.

    I find it weird btw how liberal bloggers are so easily offended. Like one woman-professor took offense of me addressing her as “ma’am.” Maybe she’d rather be treated taliban-style.
