Chris Rock has famously said that nobody wants to be a Black man. I’ll go him one further: no Black man wants to be a white man if it means he has to bear the label, “stupid.”
“Stupid” is the lasting, stinging shame that the Left has successfully deployed against the Right. Never mind that accusations once flung reveal the arsenal from whence they came; not so much projectiles as projections.
“Stupid” is the atom bomb of the philosophical arsenal. It’s much easier to lob it over the field of ideas than to critically pinpoint a weakness or flaw. Best to glass it over with an instant sun of scorn.
