I am not talking about politicians who simply lie. That is pretty much all of them, although I am convinced that the grand champion at the moment is Petro Poroshenko President of the Ukraine and also the Chocolate King of that magnificent country.
I am taking here about “Stupid Mouth”. That is not really about lying, which can be quite tricky, confusing and even intelligently done. See today’s post below.
In stupid mouth elected politicians say “facts” that are patently not true, or in the case of our new World Champion of Stupid Mouth, French President François Hollande, say something that is so patently ridiculous that it makes no sense at all.
Here is the paragraph that has won Hollande the World’s Stupid Mouth championship.
“the West should not consider Syria’s Bashar al-Assad as a partner in the fight against terrorism but as an ally of the Islamic extremists wreaking havoc in Iraq and Syria.”
Last I checked it was Hollande who was arming and financing the Islamic extremists, (oh excuse me he calls them “moderates”) in Iraq and Syria.
But today what his own propaganda media is calling the “Islamic Extremists”, has petty much been narrowed down to ISIS.
As ISIS is now fighting Assad’s government forces, is Hollande trying to tell us that he is their ally?????
Is Hollande trying to tell us that Assad is really the ally of ISIS trying to fight his own government????
I thought that the French were supposed to have an intellectual tradition? But I don’t remember even George W. Bush. (a former winner of the Stupid Mouth Competition) ever saying anything this stupid, not on a major issue of war and peace anyway. OK you French people who voted for this guy, you have now lost all of your rights to believe that you are more intelligent and in general superior to the Americans.
Do any of you my dear readers know of any elected politician, who can compete with Hollande in the category of Stupid Mouth? Please be kind enough to let us know.
