As a lifelong member of the political silent majority, even I have reached the enough-is-enough stage of being bombarded with all the lies and conspiracy theories from today’s talking heads. It is time we dump the ridiculous slogans like “stop the steal” and adapt a meaningful one like “stop the stupid.”
For the anti-vaxxers, please note that 90-plus percent of the COVID-19 patients filling up our hospitals are not vaccinated; it is time to stop the stupid. For the climate deniers, note the increasingly serious flooding, droughts and wildfires; it is time to stop the stupid.
For those who would undermine our democracy’s free and fair elections with their voter suppression laws, it is time to stop the stupid. For the citizens who think the rioters who stormed the Capitol last January were just peaceful protesters, it is time to stop the stupid.
America is a troubled nation. Our future may depend on our ability to stop the stupid.
