Americans aren't "dumb." Dumb implies that we're as smart as we could ever get, and we still lack significant intellect.
What we are, is poorly educated and ill-informed.
If our school system was set up to bread leaders, thinkers, diplomats, businessmen and artists then we would be brilliant. Instead, it has been set up
to raise mindless drones. One needs only look at the average school day:
Stand up. Say the pledge. SAY THE PLEDGE OR ELSE!
Go to your first class. Open your history book. Read about how white Europeans discovered America and how our heroic white forefathers created a
beautiful country for their white friends. Then read about how our awesome government fought the evil forces of slave states and allowed EVERYONE to
be as great as white people. Don't you DARE suggest that the greater cause behind the war was State's Rights - to do so, is to defend SLAVERY!
Then go to your second class. Open your math book. Solve one meaningless equation after another until your brain hurts. Don't you DARE ask where
you'll use this information later in life - just get good at solving the equations so that someday, an innovator and leader who went to a private
school can hand you a pile of math and have you do it for him.
Then go to your third class. Open your English book. Read absolutely nothing about understand the language, and instead focus on reading old, boring
stories written by (white European or American) authors whose work hasn't been relevant for at least a hundred years.
Then go to your fourth class. Pretend to learn some random foreign language. Nevermind that you're in your mid-teens by now and the language center
of your brain has long since fully developed. Just open the book, take the test, and don't EVER expect to be told why you weren't taught any foreign
languages when you were at the ideal stage of brain development to do so.
Then go to lunch. Eat your tiny, greasy microwaved meal that the school gives you. It looks exactly like those 1 dollar TV dinners, so I'm just sure
it's loaded with vitamins. Don't EVER ask for hot dogs on Thursday. The people in charge say Thursday is pizza day, so you will eat pizza and
Then go to gym class, because Americans are getting fat. The government MUST take responsibility for people getting fat, so the schools are just going
to have to pay out the butt to have huge gyms and exercise equipment to help kids loose weight. FORGET about asking why they don't just serve
healthier food and teach you how to balance your diet in health class.
Time for Study hall. Not free period, but study hall. Don't you DARE say you already finished your homework. Sit quietly, in formation, don't talk,
don't sleep, don't do anything the school didn't say to do. EVER.
And so it goes for the rest of the day, every day, in perfect synchronization like the beating of a slave drum.
No, there's no idiot gene in human DNA that ceases to function when you're no longer on American soil. There's nothing about us that limits our
There's just a bunch of crooked pieces of crap running our country who want to make sure their own kids are raised in the good schools to be our
leaders, and that we are raised to serve.
