TrueAmerican, & other interested people check out my last post. I made some edits.

I should have been clearer, I have had a very busy & interesting day.

The Independent Media in Melbourne, Victoria and a few others from across the country will help.

The AE9/11 Truth Convention is visiting later in the Year, we just need to try and get them to other city's other than Sydney.

So they picked the 6 or 7 people that didnt knew the answer and put it on youtube.

Now you guys think this is representative for a whole country.

Who is stupid in this scenario...

And even if people dont know the answer to this question, it doesnt mean they are stupid. A lot of people dont care about what happens in the world anymore because its depressing and utterly useless because they cant change anything anyway. The "democracy" you have in the US is basically about picking 1 of 2 families you want to run the country.

Seriously, the world is FUBAR so people focus on their own lives where they can make a difference.

I bet these guys are not dumb when it comes to knowing a lot about what they are interested in.

Sorry, but I can't find the apathy of a nation as active in world affairs as the US amusing.

The only people stopping the average US citizen from changing the world are themselves. The media has had them in a zombie-like state for far too long, and the ones that aren't playing good little clone are considered fringe and unstable.

If the general US populous decided as a whole to stop illegal wars, to stop the rape of the constitution and to stop the power being passed between the same group of old money then I'm sure they could enact that change.

Problem is, as this video is an example of, that the average US citizen either feels powerless or simply doesn't care about what their country does to them or other nations.

So, sorry but I don't find anything about this funny. Yeah, it is entertaining to laugh at the silly Americans getting the questions wrong. But really think about it.

Are these the kind of people you want voting for presidents? These are the kind of people that probably still think Iraq had something to do with 9/11 (what years was that again?) and that Saddam had a huge stash of WMDs that was found during the invasion (oh, I mean liberation).

And the fact that these people can't even remember what year 9/11 took place really surprises anyone? These are the same people who, in all probability, wouldn't be able to name the current governor of their own state, or the capitol of their state for that matter. But I bet you that they could tell you who won 'American Idol' each season since it's been aired.

Welcome to the late stages of 'The Dumbing-Down of America'. It's a sad state that has been in the works for some time now and shows signs of further progression each and every day...

I see dumb people...

I think the masses are being slowly lobotomized chemically and through the media .

Oh wow.

I have to keep this thread open for my wife to see.

She will have a cow.

Seems like most of my immediate family and in-laws would fit into these videos perfectly.

Take a look at that, gave me some good laughs.

It really annoys me that americans take such a stance on the middle east and terrorists when they really have no clue what they are talking about as shown on the several videos.

Its a sterotype but its what can be said from the videos.

Hey fooffstarr, there are equivalent shows just like the one you pointed at that shows how utterly stupid the Aussie's are.

As long as YOU let the T.V. "educate" you on the cultures of other people, you will forever and always be as ignorant as the ones you're laughing at.

In America's defense, they are asking people who know they aren't going to get the questions correct. The majority of people they asked appear to be of a low socioeconomic class, uneducated, and/or bigoted. Its probably clear they would edit out anyone who got an answer correct as well, as the point of their little program is humor.

Now is it sad and pathetic this goes on? Definitely. But Americans can very well do the same thing in any big city in another country - stand on a busy street asking questions all day and your bound to find a handful of people that answer the same way.

i think this is proof that many people are heavily sedated with the use of media entertainment, harmful chemical intake and self obsessed egotism that something like 9/11 is just a fuzzy noise like everything else in their lives.

Isn't 911 our emergency number we are supposed to call? Especially if our favorite fast food is out of something we really really wanted?

Hey, when is Dancing with the Stars on? BTW, did you see Jon and Kate? Wow!

And speaking of WOW, I got my human rouge almost to lvl. 60, just a few more hours and I will have it!!!!!

I almost forgot my term paper is due tomorrow, I better start on it after I go see the new Star Trek Movie.

Frankly I am almost to that point myself, just what year was it..........I am so side tracked with this BS life of a rat race complete with fluoride, msg, economic collapse, job loss, foreclosure, ya know the constant state of FEAR politics and religion keeps us in............................

the problem isnt that theres idiots in the US...theres idiots everywhere, Hitlers entire empire was built on this simple understanding.

The problem is when America says they are the best at...anything (we do have a impressive hollywood mind you). The education of the masses is the measure of the success of the nation.

It would be nice to see followup questions for these people to see if theres any common factors..aka, how many hours a week do you watch television, how many hours a week do you use the internet (for more than porn), do you drink unfiltered water, soda, do you smoke, do you drink, etc...

its one thing to point out a failure for a laugh, but while doing that, might as well do some actual research so perhaps something can come from it and who knows, uncover something important

Us Aussies have been laughing at the sheer ignorance of (many) Americans for years now.

You mean "We" Aussies.....correct???


Jeeze....this looks awfully similar to Jay Leno and his "Jay Walking" segments from 'The Tonight Show'.

Granted, there are a lot of well-informed and/or intelligent people here in the United States, I will give you that.....but to sit here and defend ANY of these dummies in the video is ludicrous. I absolutely KNOW that I could walk down the streets here and ask people these sorts of questions and come up with an ungodly number of ridiculous answers and/or viewpoints. I do agree that the dumbing-down of America has been a purposeful and well-thought out long-term venture by the power elite, via things like televised propaganda, water flouridation and the joke that is our educational system.
I just find it so pathetic and disappointing that so many "average" Americans don't seek out any knowledge of ANYTHING remotely worthwhile on their own. We buy into the Tragedies fed to us by the mainstream media, courtesy of the federal government, and that is enough for us. We don't need to dig, we don't need to remember the names of the players or when said events happened....Because it's good TV, and we get to be the righteous good guys.

Thank you, kyle!!

Very cogent response.

When a "hit piece" like this is edited, you have no idea how many correct answers were excluded........

As a Canadian I have to tell you there just as many idiots here, there and everywhere.

It’s not an American thing, it’s a people thing. As long as there are people there are going to be idiots. I’m sure I could go out on my street right here and ask someone if they know things about Canada and they will have no idea it happened. It’s a people thing not an American thing.

The American things are I want I want I want, look at me, I’m rich, I’m beautiful, I know it all cause I’m American, I’m better than you, so I’m going to tell you how to live your life. These kinds of control and material things. But again all of these things happen in every country. No country is better than others, they either have great or #ty leaders that’s all.

I could go out interview 5000 people and only show you the 20 complete morons. And I think that’s what is happening. People are people regardless of country, there are going to be some who are too stupid or just don’t give a rats ass.

Keep yourself informed and make up your own mind, leave the fools to their own demise.
