Don Lemon: When I Was Laughing Uproariously at Borderline Racist Attacks on Low-Status Whites, I Was Only Laughing Because... I Couldn't Hear the Jokes I Was Laughing At?!!


I see.

Yesterday, when you started laughing like someone with a mental problem at Rick Wilson's Rebus-puzzle Dad Joke, I thought you were just borderline retarded.

But now that you're claiming you were only laughing at the jokes because you couldn't hear the jokes you were laughing at, I now think you're all-the-way-home retarded.

Don Lemon is a black hole of ignorance and lies.

The guy who wondered if a free-roaming black hole was eating airplanes out of the sky is having a laugh about profound ignorance?

Note that Wajahat Ali, who was on that panel crackin' jokes about the Working Class White Rubes (but don't you dare point out the backwardness of Muslims -- that's racist!), has a different explanation: Yes, he was making fun of the despised non-urban whites, and he's not sorry about it.

This clip from the Dave Rubin show, interviewing cultural commentator (and... living tribute to Tulsi Gabbard) Michael Malice, is very, very good.

If you don't feel like watching it, he makes two major points:

1, What Don Lemon, Rick Wilson, and Wajahat Ali are doing is taking the speech patterns and stereotypes formerly used to mock poor, low-status blacks and applying them, untransformed, to attack the left's designated racial scapegoat, poor, low-status whites.

2, Don Lemon and Rick Wilson are what he calls "mid-wits," which is dangerously stupid sort of person that I'm always warning about, although I don't call them "mid-wits."

Mid-wits, he explains, are average intelligence people or just slightly above-average intelligence people who belong to a cult which valorizes -- fetishizes, even -- high intelligence. So they're always desperate to prove that they're high intelligence, which is a major problem, because they're not even close.

That results in absurdities like Rick Wilson claiming that being able to locate Ukraine on a map is a useful virtue signal of his (falsely imputed) high intelligence, and the degenerate moron Don Lemon thinking that this is hi- (as in high intelligence) -larious.

I've made this analogy recently -- this is like a guy putting on a Blue Hat and then solemnly informing you that people who wear Blue Hats are genetically superior to those who don't. These are the sorts of people who look something trivial up -- on Wikipedia -- and then tell you they're your Natural Order Betters for knowing the thing they just looked up on Wikipedia.

People with large-but-brittle egos -- large, because they're narcissists, but brittle because their egotism is based on an entirely false belief that they are remotely "elite" in any way -- are venomously psychologically damaged are are always lashing out hatefully when the world reminds them that they're not that smart. They can't stand that reminder, so they have to immediately reassure themselves they're Actually Super-Smart by putting on a Blue Hat of Superiority or looking up the "Madchester sound" on Wikipedia and then berating people for not knowing what Madchester is.

They also fetishize youth but are themselves largely old as fuck -- resulting in very sad, pathetic attempts to appear young on Twitter, aping the lingo and stupid jokes they see The Young People repeating. That's a different but closely associated psychological defect.

That's how you get risible attempts to "dress young," as below:

That's Rick Wilson, of course. 285 pounds of Rompin'-Stomplin' Sex.

He's young. He's wearing dungarees, as George Will would say. (Thanks to Jane D'oh for the correction on that.)
