Peak Stupidity prides ourselves in our clever titles, thanks to the praise, hence motivation, from commenter MBlanc46 long ago. Does this one take the cake or what? Pretty stupid? Hey, that's the title, and we're sticking to it, and sticking it to this deceased Neocon with this post in reference to a quick VDare obituary post.
We have had no problem with speaking ill of the dead* or dead of the ill for that matter. However, our reasoning was only about those who were really harmful to the country with their politics and still in office. Because it took their dying to get them out of office, then, yes, I was glad they were dead.
For the recently deceased Colin Powell, that is not a valid reason. He may have been still politically active in terms of running his anti-Trump Neocon mouth, but he wasn't directly hurting the country with action as of late. Well, both our latest favorite VDare writer, Jack Dalton** and Donald Trump had some ill words to say about Colin Powell in the post Trump Calls Out Fake News Media Over Colin Powell Glorification.
“Wonderful to see Colin Powell, who made big mistakes on Iraq and famously, so-called weapons of mass destruction, be treated in death so beautifully by the Fake News Media,” Trump wrote. “Hope that happens to me someday.”Jack Dalton's words:
How many American lives were lost and ruined because of the lies Colin Powell told about “weapons of mass destruction"?That's most of the post, but Mr. Dalton noted (I haven't kept up) that Mr. Powell was 84 years old and supposedly died of COVID. Mr. Dalton made a typo and wrote "death at COVID" which could be a novel way to put it, but we wonder if it that death could be truly attributed to be FROM COVID vs. OF COVID. The man was getting pretty big too, from the pictures I saw on the results page of a bing search. Oh yeah, and Colin Powell had gotten vaccinated for the Kung Flu, twice. Ooops. Was it COVID, the vax, or other conditions? To log or not to log, that is the question.
How many children grew up without a father because of the policies Powell pushed as the first black Secretary of State?
Powell was nothing more an affirmative action member of the Global America Empire (GAE) elite, a black individual of modest ability promoted simply because he was sufficiently black.
This may seem a bit uncivil of Donald Trump and Jack Dalton, but I have no problem with their words. The ctrl-left has been uncivil for a few decades now. We are not going to win against them playing Mr. Nice Guy. Colin Powell may have been a decent man, although still an AA hire who lied (along with plenty others, such as the US President) us into another totally unnecessary war.
After all, probably over a Billion people were very glad to hear of the death of China's Chairman Mao, and would have spoke ill of that dead man in private in front of people they could trust. Adolph Hitler is almost always spoken of with ill words. Only the biggest of the dead Communists are spoken of with ill words, and by Conservatives only, as the left covers for their murder and destruction. We'd be better off getting comfortable with speaking ill of the dead of the ctrl-left going forward. "The only good Communist is a dead Communist", they said back during the Cold War. There's no reason for that axiom not to remain true in our near future.
Jack Dalton's final words of this newest great VDare post of his:
No one responsible for the state of our country or the world deserves praise or admiration. Only scorn.Peak Stupidity agrees wholeheartedly.
* Peak Stupidity has never had a reason to speak ill of THE Dead, however, and probably never will.
** Peak Stupidity mentioned this writer in two posts, None dare call them Commies and Peak Stupidity, Pundits, and Governors, OH MY!
