Doofus Of The Day #1,073

 

Today's award goes to Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, who opened the 117th session of Congress in "prayer" (at least, that's what he called it).  Listen for yourselves.



Two points:

  1. Brahma is not a "monotheistic god".  Brahma is part of the "33 crore" (approximately 330 million) gods and holy beings of the Hindu pantheon.
  2. "Amen" has nothing whatsoever to do with the male sex.  It's an ancient expression meaning "Let it be so", or - in King James English - "so mote it be".  Therefore, to add "awomen" to it is so nonsensical as to be utterly ludicrous.

In case anyone thinks I'm being racist for making such remarks, I'm not (as any regular reader will know).  This isn't racism at work - it's arrant stupidity, so incredibly off-the-charts as to defy explanation.  It's more than just ignorance.  Ignorance can be corrected by looking up the facts, and Rep. Cleaver clearly didn't bother to do that at all.

This sort of absurdity also explains why politicians think they can get away with murder.  They seem to believe that the rest of us don't see and recognize how they treat themselves as special cases.



With politicians like this making our laws, is it any wonder they're so convoluted, baffling and incomprehensible - both laws and politicians?

We live the Hunger Games. Seriously. The elites with everything, and then the dirt people who can be hunted and killed without any worry.

Or.. Metropolis. We even have 'sex-robots.'

Gahhh!!!!!

I will not mention anything about race, except to say that some people are borderline retarded and Mr. Cleaver appears to be one of those.
