The Outrage Machine is Alive and Well

When we started the weekly Saturday missive called “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” I wondered if we would be able to sustain the theme. Well, that’s far from being the case. As a matter of fact, we end up having to rank several examples and try to discern the most egregious. There have been times when we even have to recognize several recipients. This week we are going to share with you several honorable mentions, and then one doozy for our Old School Patriot “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” recognition.

Our first honorable mention for this week is the progressive socialist left and their response to a thought by President Trump. President Trump shared his thoughts on dumping illegal immigrants in sanctuary cities for illegal immigrants. It was the dog whistle that sent the left into another round of apoplectic meltdowns. But think about how stupid their reaction was. The left was in a flailing state of delusion because President Trump considered sending illegal immigrants to cities the progressive socialist left says are places for illegal immigrants.

Now, can anyone explain the outrage to me? Or, is it that the left wants to determine which illegal immigrants they allow within their cities? Are there “good” illegal immigrants, the ones they select, and those designated so by President Trump are “bad” ones?

How absurd, how utterly crazed to reject the very policy that you have created, and why? Yes, it is all about one thing, politics. Rejecting anything that is proposed by President Trump, even if it is in alignment with leftist dogma. Well, one thing is for certain: once again, we have clear evidence of leftist hypocrisy and stupidity.

Our second honorable mention for this week — and, I am quite sure we shall hear more from this “someone,” is Rep. Ilhan Omar. One just has to ask, how stupid can you be to speak, on video, at an event for a known organization that has colluded with Islamic terrorist groups, the infamous Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR), and make a statement of dismissal about our generation’s “day that shall live in infamy,” 9-11?

For a US member of Congress to say that 9-11 was about “someone doing something” is beyond belief, unconscionable. Then again, perhaps Rep. Omar is not stupid, she just believes that we are and that she can act and say these things with impunity. If there are no consequences —  and, it appears there will not be — Rep. Omar, who is already being heavily defended by leftists, will press on, and her insidious, and calculated, statements will continue. Yes, one would think she is stuck on stupid, then again, she is sly like a fox, believing she will never be held accountable.

Our third “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” honorable mention is someone who will probably earn this distinction often: New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. It is not just that she has asserted that anyone criticizing her colleague Rep. Omar is a racist. She now contends — along with our world ending in 12 years — that climate change is the cause of illegal immigration. Is it possible that I can deduce that climate change is the cause of sanctuary cities in America? I think I will just leave this absurd bloviating to itself, but it is not the ultimate winner of our “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” recognition.

Nope, the winner of this week’s dubious accolade goes to this group, as reported by ABC News:

“Georgetown University could become the first college in the nation to mandate a fee to benefit descendants of slaves sold by the university nearly 200 years ago — a debate that takes place against the backdrop of a broader political conversation unfolding on the 2020 presidential campaign trail about reparations. 

By almost a 2-to-1 margin, students approved the measure, which still must be approved by the university to go into effect.

The school’s undergraduates voted Thursday on the referendum, which would increase tuition by $27.20 per semester to create a fund benefiting descendants of the 272 slaves sold to pay off the Georgetown Jesuits’ debt — a move that saved the university financially.”

Need I say any more? Yes, the undergraduate students at Georgetown University who cast a vote for a “student reparations fee is top dog for this week. C’mon, you just gotta be kidding me. If I were a parent of a Georgetown undergrad student and saw this, my immediate reaction would be a phone call to my kid. I would quietly tell them that I read this story about Georgetown students voting for a “student reparations fee,” and ask my student if they participated in this vote. If my kid were to tell me they voted for this and thought it was a great idea, well, the tuition payments would end. Perhaps there are Georgetown parents who will make that call and gush with pride that their student did vote “yea” for this nonsensical measure. If that is the case, the parents are co-recipients of the “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” recognition.

What gives with the progressive socialist left and their desire to continue to perpetuate a slave mentality in America?

This, folks, is so very dumb on multiple levels. But just think, these little social justice snowflake warriors think they are onto something. One day, these little rascals will have leadership positions in our America. God helps us. Then again, what the heck are these kids being taught? Oops, my bad, they are being indoctrinated . . . indoctrinated by the Jedi Masters of a special kind of stupid.

If there is one thing for certain, these so-called “elite” colleges and universities in America are a joke. Think about it, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez supposedly has a cum laude degree in Economics from Boston University. . . sounds rather Milli Vanilli-ish to me. College kids voting to implement a “student reparations fee?” Doggone, that is priceless beyond comprehension.

Therefore, this week’s recipients of the Old School Patriot “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” recognition are the Georgetown University undergrad students who voted to institute a “student reparations fee” as a punitive punishment for something that someone did 200 years ago. Oh, by the way, that “something” — slavery — was supported by those “someones” . . . the Democrat Party.
