I am just a bit taken back by such an elitist display of judgment on a BBS dedicated to conspiracy theories and fringe based suppositions; where the
alleged actions of the Illuminati, for one, are condemned. Who would have thought Nitsche was right about monster hunting after all?
Just because something may not be to your taste, doesn’t make it stupid. For example, Hip Hop is not to my liking, but that doesn’t make it
stupid. Country music isn’t high on my list either, but that doesn’t invalidate it in the slightest. Comedy is a lot like music, in that
individual comedians have different and varying styles, just like bluegrass spirituals differ from traditional gospels.
I have found some of Ron White’s observations to be thoughtful and funny, if not irrelevantly irreverent; and I’m sure there’s a Bill Engvall
‘Here’s your sign’ joke for this thread, but I’ll leave it to those better suited for ‘down-home’ puns. Personally, I’d rather be
watching Lewis Black any day of the week, but Larry the Cable Guy will do in a pinch. It’s entertainment, not philosophy.
For that matter, David Icke is a blithering idiot to some and a profound visionary to others, but who is to say he is stupid?
Of course, not everyone has the same view on things, and that’s wonderful. Diversity isn’t necessarily a bad thing, is it? On the other hand,
elitism, especially of the intellectual variety, is not only be a bad thing, but a dangerous one.
On a website such as this, more than anywhere else, divided we are conquered. If you dislike a given genre/topic, you are more than entitled to an
educated opinion, however, one should respect the opinions of others as well.
