For those tuning in for the first time, the “Too Stupid to Survive” series showcases the rampant, and arguably worsening, stupidity that might give a reasonable person pause about the survival of America in particular and western civilization in general.  A reasonable person might also argue that California proves the point, as The California Globe, in an article about spending obscene amounts of money to address California’s “homeless problem,” will actually help.  See what I mean?

Another bill, Assembly Bill 46 by Assemblywoman Wendy Carillo (D-Los Angeles), would enact legislation ‘to replace derogatory terms with more culturally sensitive terms’ when referring to individuals with mental illness – terms such as ‘insane’ and ‘mental disorder.’ It is unclear how this will effectively address the homeless crisis.

One can only imagine what sort of terms such insane—ooops!—crazy—darn!—people would think proper.  The next is a glimpse at the future Leftists envision for America.  The British have all but entirely banned guns, so criminals who don’t use guns use knives!  Who coulda thunk it?  This is a photo British police proudly displayed of dangerous weapons they’ve taken off the street:

Notice, gentle readers: most of these are kitchen knives, including multiple kitchen forks, and they’ve even included a sport fencing foil.  But my favorite is the deadly spoon.  Obviously, there’s a great deal of spoon violence across the pond.

This is famous model Emily Ratjakowski, who is famous for being a model and famous. Notice that she is lithe, lovely and naked.  Actually, I’m pretty sure you noticed the naked part first thing. Nudity, in our society, carries various connotations, but none of them have anything to do with abortion, or the possibility of limiting its access.  Yet, Ms. Ratjakowski would have us know her nudity is a protest, or an awareness raising gesture about that possibility.  I’m somehow not seeing the connection.  Don’t get me wrong, gentle readers, I like seeing lithe, lovely young models naked– I’m toxically male that way—but I’m still not seeing the connection.  You know, I’m a bit concerned about climate change alarmism.  Perhaps if I posed naked…?  Nah.  Don’t want to frighten the horses and stampede the women and children.

I have a female friend from Connecticut, a vivacious, intelligent woman. Yet when she moved to the wilds of South Dakota, I discovered she could not pump gas, and was afraid of trying.  An Eastern thing, apparently.  With gentle coaching, she eventually mastered it. This lady apparently has not.

A Trooper apparently in a bit of a hurry—for lunch.

 Bike locks are useful, but only if…

 Ouch!  One can only hope this guy is a masochist:

A bungling felon from Washington state made a series of blunders when he shot himself in the testicles and tried to hide the weapon — all while storing drugs in his anus, a report said Wednesday.

Cameron Jeffrey Wilson, 27, was carrying a pistol in his front pocket while in his Cashmere, Wash., apartment on April 5 when the firearm accidentally discharged and pierced his groin and thigh, according to the Wenatchee World News.

Wilson, who is a 13-time convicted felon, told his girlfriend to dispose of the weapon before heading to the hospital, the paper said.

When the ex-con finally went to the hospital, a balloon of marijuana slipped out of his anus while a doctor was operating on the gunshot wound, court records show.

Cops also arrived at the hospital when alerted of the gunshot wound and searched Wilson’s car where they discovered a bag of meth in the blood-stained jeans he was wearing when he shot himself.

Funny.  During my dating days, I don’t recall women being particularly attracted to guys that stuff anything up they anus:  “I enjoy tennis, fine wines, walks on the beach at sunset, and sticking things up my butt.  You?”   One can only hope this guy won’t be reproducing…

The religion of climate change is irredeemably stupid, but combine it with racialism, and we descend to a previously unplumbed depth of stupidity, as Steven Hayward at Powerline notes:   

After Barack Obama took office, white Americans were less likely to see climate change as a serious problem, according to a recent paper published in the journal Environmental Politics. The study further finds evidence of a link between racial resentment and climate change denial. This is not to suggest that all climate deniers are racists, merely that racial resentment may, in part, be driving climate denial. [skip]

The relationship between racial attitudes and public opinion about climate change is examined. Public opinion data from Pew and American National Election Studies surveys are used to show that racial identification and prejudices are increasingly correlated with opinions about climate change during the Obama presidency. Results show that racial identification became a significant predictor of climate change concern following Obama’s election in 2008, and that high levels of racial resentment are strongly correlated with reduced agreement with the scientific consensus on climate change. These results offer evidence for an effect termed the spillover of racialization. This helps further explain why the public remains so polarized on climate change, given the extent to which racial grievances and identities have become entangled with elite communication about climate change and its related policies today.

I admit it: they got us. That’s what normal Americans did.  One and all, they thought: “I hate Black people, and Obama is POTUS, so I’m going to deny climate change even more!  That will show those uppity Black people!”

And where would any round up of terminal stupidity be without AOC: 

After her brief video, Ocasio-Cortez discussed how tornadoes were part of the threat of climate change.

‘The climate crisis is real y’all,’ she said. ‘Guess we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country?’

‘Other regions deal with wildfires, tornadoes, droughts, etc. But ALL of these threats will be increasing in intensity as climate crisis grows and we fail to act appropriately,’ she said.

Un-huh.  And just how do we “deal with” wildfires, droughts, etc.,” and most of all just what is a “casual” tornado, and how does one deal with that?  Casually? Isn’t that the opposite of how climate alarmists want us to think of such things?

Too stupid to survive.
