Sometimes, the stupid is truly scary.

Witness Blogging Tory Mike McGuire, who long ago decided that reality was way too much trouble:

Obama shaming America again by standing w/ Marxist tyrants

Huh .. wha ... come again? Oh, never mind ... it's just Mike being an asshole:

What a disgrace. Obama is feeble & vascillating when it comes to the Pro-Democracy movement in Iran, but when it comes to a Latin American thug trying to fashion himself into a poor man's ooooooohgo Chavez by acting illegally & unconstitutionally, well BHO can't run fast enuf to side himself w/ Chavez & against the people of Honduras.

Illegally? Unconstitutionally? Against the people of Honduras? Come on, Mike, let it all hang out:

Any sane person is rejoicing that the justice system in Honduras removed this Chavez puppet & frog matched him out of the country. Any sane person would be thrilled that Chavez has been delivered a major setback in his dreams of a Marxist empire, but not the Obamassiah.

And now that Mike has finished being as thigh-suckingly ignorant as, oh, "Hunter" or a can of Spam, let's check in with the real world.

First, Honduras president Manuel Zelaya was elected entirely democratically, and for a member of a group of howling cementheads who are currently shrieking about the "undemocratic" election in Iran, you'd think Mike might have placed some value on that. Apparently not. It's a context thing, I'm guessing. But here's where it gets fun.

See, I was prepared to cruise the Interwhatzits and slowly and lovingly collect information to bolster my case of Mike McGuire being a useless retard but, mercifully, it's already been done. Let's read, with all emphasis nad-grindingly added:

The text message that beeped on my cell phone this morning read “Alert, Zelaya has been kidnapped, coup d’etat underway in Honduras, spread the word.” It’s a rude awakening for a Sunday morning, especially for the millions of Hondurans that were preparing to exercise their sacred right to vote today for the first time on a consultative referendum concerning the future convening of a constitutional assembly to reform the constitution. Supposedly at the center of the controversy is today’s scheduled referendum, which is not a binding vote but merely an opinion poll to determine whether or not a majority of Hondurans desire to eventually enter into a process to modify their constitution.

Huh. How about that? So it wasn't a savage, Marxist, dictatorial trampling of democratic principles after all. Rather, it was simply a, "Anyone interested in possibly at some point amending the constitution? Thoughts? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?" Wow, I'll bet Mike is some kind of red-faced now. Or he would be if he had any shame or principles. But, hey, let's not stop now. Is there any reason that someone sincerely interested in democracy might want to reform the Honduran constitution? Oh ...

Such an initiative has never taken place in the Central American nation, which has a very limited constitution that allows minimal participation by the people of Honduras in their political processes. The current constitution, written in 1982 during the height of the Reagan Administration’ s dirty war in Central America, was designed to ensure those in power, both economic and political, would retain it with little interference from the people. Zelaya, elected in November 2005 on the platform of Honduras’ Liberal Party, had proposed the opinion poll be conducted to determine if a majority of citizens agreed that constitutional reform was necessary. He was backed by a majority of labor unions and social movements in the country. If the poll had occured, depending on the results, a referendum would have been conducted during the upcoming elections in November to vote on convening a constitutional assembly. Nevertheless, today’s scheduled poll was not binding by law.

Ah ... so the current constitution basically favours the rich and powerful and, well, maybe that just doesn't seem right. Ergo, a public opinion poll. How cruelly autocratic and draconian, eh, Mike? And how did the powers-that-be take to that little idea? Not so well, it seems:

In fact, several days before the poll was to occur, Honduras’ Supreme Court ruled it illegal, upon request by the Congress, both of which are led by anti-Zelaya majorities and members of the ultra-conservative party, National Party of Honduras (PNH).

Wow ... both the Honduran Supreme Court and Congress got their Underoos in a bunch over this, not because they gave a crap about democracy, but for nakedly political reasons. And the end result?

Late news: As of 11:15am, Caracas time, President Zelaya is speaking live on Telesur from San Jose, Costa Rica. He has verified the soldiers entered his residence in the early morning hours, firing guns and threatening to kill him and his family if he resisted the coup. He was forced to go with the soldiers who took him to the air base and flew him to Costa Rica.

Nothing undemocratic or coup-ish about dragging someone out of their home at gunpoint, eh, Mikey? And that's why we here at CC HQ read the Blogging Tories. We really do want to know what the intellectually crippled dumbasses think.

God only knows why.

Ordinarily, commenting on your revelations of the abject ignorance and stupidity of the Retardosphere is pointless for me. You’ve already said it and I thank you. However, my very large and loud male tabby decided to hop up my lap and use my stomach as an ecstatic kneading pad as is his wont and something occurred to me. Nolan, this eccentric and dumber than a sack of hammers cat (trust me, he is) is still, at the end of the day, a big loveable goombah. I can tolerate just about any shit from him.

So I would propose to the residents of the Retardosphere that you should pray to whatever Sky Fairy you believe in to change you all into cats or dogs or other loveable pets. Then, all of the people who actually have functioning brains will be prepared to tolerate your illogical and stupid actions far more favourably. Hey, just like the current pets we now have, you could RULE THE WORLD. Or, at least, a household because frankly, as human beings, you’re all a fucking waste.

You know, I really have to wonder here: What's in it for the Tories and Republicans who support this coup and make idiotic arguments to that effect? I really fail to see how this position makes any sense for them idiologically.

Of course, most likely they're just reflexively taking the opposite position of Obama. If Obama came out tomorrow and called North Korea a brutal dictatorship, you can bet they'd be Kim Jong Il's best friends in a heartbeat.

That or they're just trying to keep up their record of being wrong on every single issue.

I was watching a documentary last week on primate intelligence and it is no exaggeration at all to state that the bonobos, orangutans and chimpanzees are markedly smarter than these people.

Really this stupidity is appalling. Criminal, even.

that's too easy an explanation. i suspect they're just showing their true colors is all. they use the word "democracy" the way a full-blown passive aggressive type uses a smile.

Anything to the left of whatever stance they take on the right is considered socialist and/or communist. Anything socialist demands government controls on individual freedoms. Since freedom, by their definition, is democracy, socialism cannot be democratic.

The fact that the populace has control of who represents them in government through a system of votes is irrelevant. What is important is the ideology. Their embrace of a specific ideology is based on their emotional gut feeling, which they call 'common sense'.

Please don't expect anybody in that group to actually think about what they believe, it isn't part of their capabilities.

Even if a right wing nutbar can think rationally, rational thought cannot overcome their emotion.

After we came out of the church, we stood talking for some time together of blogging tory's ingenious sophistry to prove the nonexistence of what matters and that everything in the media is merely liberal. I observed, that though we are satisfied (that) this doctrine is not true, it is impossible to refute it, so they(blogging tories/conservatives) say.

I shall never forget the alacrity with which CC answered - striking his word with mighty force against their tiny stones 'till they rebounded from it "I refute it. Truss?"

CC's refutations do not go unappreciated

Consider if the U.S. financed a vote on a measure that your government would not define for the people and said government spent public funds on promoting this measure with no existing budget and then at the last minute you found the vote was to make your governor general the supreme law and able to stay in power forever regardless of the Queens thought. Now look how the OAS treats Honduras, like a monarchy by telling them whom should be president.
