Sometimes ‘idiotic’ just doesn’t convey the opaque stupidity of some people, and by ‘people’ I mean the dimmest-of-the-dim-bulbs in the cognitive function deficiency contest called the “Occupy” movement, about 40 of whom disrupted a meeting of the Board of Regents yesterday afternoon. Walter Jones has some details:
They had begun by coughing and then stood together. They repeated that several times until the coughing grew loud enough for regents Chairman Ben Tarbutton to stop the meeting and offered the group to appoint a spokesman to address the regents for five minutes.”
Haha, coughing to disrupt a meeting! That was funny when I saw it in Animal House. In 1978.
But it’s a good thing they didn’t accept Chairman Tarbutton’s offer to speak, because their list of grievances would have gotten them locked up. To wit:
1.The Board of Regents has been raising tuition and fees and must stop.
2. The Board of Regents bears responsibility for limitations on HOPE scholarships imposed by the Legislature last year.
3. The Board of Regents should stop “restricting” African Americans, which is resulting in segregated colleges.
4. The Board of Regents must take a pay cut in their unpaid positions as members of the Board of Regents.
5. The Board of Regents should permit illegal immigrants to attend Georgia Colleges and Universities.
I wish I could make up something as ridiculous and absurd as this, but I literally can’t keep up with the scope of the Occupy lunacy. I’ve heard smarter things said by people who were wrapped in ice taking electroshock treatments in Milledgeville. Statements like those clearly show that Occupiers shouldn’t be trusted with sharp objects, and present a clear danger to themselves and others. I feel dumber every time I hear them or about them.
