    when country bumpkings, who want to manage a national budget at their kitchen table, who hate book learnin' and experts... take the reins of power.

    There is a good dose of racism too...

    But this is is boys and girls. This is what is destroying us.


    Ok here is a term that MIGHT work...

    Know nothings? That works? It is a less regional and a close equivalent. I promise to work on a term... but it is real... and it is on display in Idiocracy as well.


    Their open contempt for people they don't consider "smart enough" is amazing. And this thread is filled with it and an excellent example of DUmmie thinking.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    I guess "intellectualism" includes the worship of government waste and running up massive amounts of debt that will eventually cripple the economy.

    The DUmp is proof that common sense isn't.

    There are intellectuals and there are intelexuals. The former are scholars who seek the answers based on their understanding of that which is deemed to be factual evidence, the latter are people who profess the same goal but are fucked in the head, requiring them to seek out or create evidence that they can call fact so that they can understand.

    BZZZZZ! Wrong!

    Anti-intellectualism is why you get when you force everyone into a hive mentality and group think and banish and shun anyone who dares to think on their own.

    Sound familiar Nadin?
