edmo: High School dropout is an idiot. Film at 11.


She knows enough to give a glib talking point to help secure one of the single-issue voting groups who support her. I won't ever accuse her of being a genius but I am starting to think she's more willfully ignorant than stupid.

RonFilipkowski: Denmark's last school shooting was in 1994 - not one in the last 28 years. The country averages 49 homicides a year for the past 10 years - and not even all of those were shootings. https://t.co/rHV9rnRgPs


Do they just randomly puke out "country with the strictest gun laws in Europe " without checking actual gun laws?

Waiting for then to claim Finland

I think we can all agree she's utterly loathsome.

2022 so far
USA mass shootings: 250 (WSJ)
Denmark mass shootings: 1 (that I could find)

Denmark has a population of 5.9 million, which makes it about a populous as Wisconsin or Colorado.

Wisconsin has averaged 179 murder a year for the past ten years (2010-2019).  Colorado averaged 177 for the same time period.

Minnesota is about 5.7 million people, but they averaged 104.

Maryland, at 6.2 million, averaged 455.

Missouri, at 6.2 million, averaged 476.

Denmark's average homicide rate would be .831 per 100,000 people per year.

Ours is about 5.0, or six times higher.

Even the lowest states in the Union, such as South Dakota or Vermont are twice as high as Denmark.  And Denmark is far more crowded and cosmopolitan than those two states.

Which doesn't even make sense on the surface. Black people are "woke liberal Democrats" and therefore, they don't even believe in guns or self defense.

Kind of sad when you have to hire out to get stupid shiat full of logical fallacies written. A hard-working, self-reliant, bootstrappy conservative like her should be able to generate bullshiat all on her own.

Sometimes I feel like they'd sing a different tune of they were shot in the head. But I know that their widows would just continue on with the BS talking points and blame democrats instead of guns.

Her entire schtick is to know what her base wants, and say those things as often as possible.  The fact that it makes us so angry is part of why it works.
Her base loves it, we hate it.  That's how she gets votes.

What I'm trying to say is that she might not be as stupid as we think, if you consider being able to manipulate people is a "smart" skill.

No, she's even more stupid than we think but she is useful.

On her own, she was an uneducated redneck with a failing restaurant.

To smart, evil people, she can serve a purpose. With the right support and messaging around her, she can be used to further their agenda. Her brand of angry dumb can motivate other angry dumb people.

But once she's no longer useful, she'll be discarded like a piece of trash. She's no Trump, who has showed his skill in manipulating people to enrich himself in the past.

Unpossible. I have been reliably informed by Fark's Magsturbator Militia that too many "diverse and cosmopolitan" people are what causes gun crime

More specifically, what Boebert is doing is committing a subset of the Composition Fallacy that I like to call the 99=0 Fallacy. That is: If something isn't 100% perfect, effective, absolute, or total, then that's the same as it not being any good at all. A law that is 99% effective at stopping gun violence is the same as no gun laws at all. That's what she actually believes.

There is also an inverse of this fallacy that conservatives love to use called the 1=100 fallacy. That is: If it happens once, that means it happens 100% of the time. TFG abuses this fallacy constantly (most notably regarding the BLM protests, which involved millions of peaceful people in hundreds of cities, to declare them all violent mobs because of a few incidents with police).

But nobody ever said that Boebert and TFG were paragons of logic and reason.

And yet - even with all of our laws attempting to regulate morality - US prisons are full of Christians.

Meh, reads like a 20something who's just discovered religious theory.

Evengelicals don't want a world full of suffering to test THEMSELVES.  They want forgiveness for themselves, and comfort.  They blame discomfort on infidels.

They're jihadists not masochists.

Why would they be desperate? Decades of evidence points to the fact American gun nuts do not have to worry about any laws against their homicidal fixation.

She's not desperate, she's an attention whore and this got her attention. No one is actually worrying about their guns being taken away.

Gun nuts always cream in their jeans when there's a mass shooting in some other country. Doesn't matter that it may only happen once every 15 years in that country.

(Or however long. I have no idea when the last mass shooting in Denmark was.)
