I wish I could just let some things go……my daughter tells me that I will live longer if I ignore the stupid……but unfortunately for me….I cannot!
This post is yet another anal statement made by an elected official……as a bit of a history geek I find it offensive when someone that is in a leadership position has NO grasp of history and of the idiocy they spread…………
Today’s entry into the running for the most anal statement was made by the media’s love child,….New Jersey’s governor Chris Christie……in a recent speech he made a really stupid statement and deserves all the notoriety that I can heap onto him….
Christie said: “The fact of the matter is, I think people would have been happy to have a referendum on civil rights rather than fighting and dying in the streets in the South.”
This is the rest of the quote: “It was our political institutions that were holding things back. I don’t think there’s anything necessarily so special about this particular issue that it must be handled by a Legislature. Why would that be?…I don’t understand how anybody could argue with letting the people decide this issue.”
Either Christie did not pay attention in history class or he is too young to remember what the Civil Rights struggle was all about……does he NOT realize that black people could not vote effectively in the South….in the 1960’s he really thinks that white segregationist Southerns would have voted in favor of civil rights?
This is the mindless dribble that takes our system of government to the pinnacle of stupidity!
You can’t fix stupid!
