How Stupid Do They Think We Are?

Patrick Armstrong – Strategic Review July 7, 2019

“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

Consumers of the print or electronic output of the League of Copy Typists and their Instructors are expected to believe many impossible things and believe them, not just before breakfast, but all day too.

Come to think it, believing any part of the official Skripal story, from the incredibly lethal nerve agent that didn’t kill them, to the spectacular coincidence of the British Army’s chief nurse being on the scene, to the re-wrapped perfume bottle would tax the White Queen’s ability. Here’s a list. But that’s not to say that we’re finished yet: there always seems to be another absurdity like the dead ducks.

Pseudo psychology explains geopolitics. And pretty idiotically too: a whole country on the couch. “Russia is more insecure and paranoid“, “a kind of neurotic disorder that renders Russia’s sense of insecurity” “The deep sense of humiliation, the dread of arrogant Westerners, the fear of NATO encirclement.” or maybe it’s not the whole country, just Putin: Putin’s insecure because of Russia’s “diminished role in the world“. “Well, Russian President Vladimir Putin is a textbook case of someone with a serious inferiority complex.” Anyway, some gasbag pseudo-psychology explains it: there’s no reality, Russia/Putin is just naturally paranoid. Probably nothing you can do about it.

NATO is just going along, minding its own business when, entirely without provocation, hostile nations try to destabilise the world, interfere with freedom of navigation, assault the Rules-Based International Order, and otherwise force NATO to react. From a current Pentagon study: “Russia is adopting coercive strategies that involve the orchestrated employment of military and nonmilitary means to deter and compel the US, its allies and partners prior to and after the outbreak of hostilities.” “Deter and compel” – poor little NATO, so weak, so bullied! Russia does this because of its “deep-seated sense of geopolitical insecurity” which it has just because it has. (More geopolitical pseudo-psychology.)

And, finally, Putin is interfering in the West’s interference in another country.

  1. bilionaire jewboy in trouble again for child sex
    yes its epstein

  2. Excellent writing! It is amazing how deep the doublespeak has gotten, it’s even more
    amazing how we buy the obvious crap! Just some of it put together like this shows
    it too.

  3. The Jews Media is full of propaganda and lies. Deception is its purpose.

    Young naive people and even many mature people seldom look beneath the surface. The great majority of goyim go from cradle to grave without becoming jew-wise.

    Practically everybody and his whole family have no clue who was behind 9/11 and the rest of the evils.

    People have to study, do the homework, and see for themselves to understand. Almost nobody has the inquisitive mind and enough curiosity to figure it out.

  4. All of you, practically, believe certain really big lies and as long as you do, the psychos will continue to try and convince you of more. You look out at the world and your eyes see it, but your mind twists what your eyes see into something that doesn’t exist. It takes courage to set aside what you are fed and instead see what is.
    On the positive side, you can see through all of these other lies, at least in part, because we have entered a new era over the last few decades. Now that we are climbing the positive side of the wavelength truth will be increasingly easy to find and deceit will be continually harder to maintain. The internet did not create the movement toward truth, the internet became what it is because of the movement toward truth. Keep it up, guys, and thanks for a great article.

  5. Guess what! The author is right. The vast majority of Americans are stupid.
    They still celebrate the Fourth of July believing they are free and that the United States military has been attacking and killing people all over the world for over a 100 years to keep them that way.
