It's Mystery Stoopid Theater 2013 !!!

That's right gang, it's a jam-packed day for teh Stoopid, so much that some of it, I'm just going to link to where others have heaped scorn on teh Burning Stoopid. . .

But now, here at the Bloghome of Love. . . .WE HAVE STOOPID SIGN!!!

video

Our first vignette takes us to the University of Wyoming. . . .where it seems, that wild Burning Stoopid roams the plains, hills, and academic buildings.  A reportedly well-known liberal radio-show host named Meg Lanker-Simons received a threat to rape her, and make her a "good Republican ####"





Of course, with a local Liberal icon under threat of "hatefuck" from a obviously Conservative Republican Teabagger sort, the campus was inflamed.  There was an investigation.  There were outraged students.  There were demonstrations against sexual violence.  The "UW Crushes" group was taken down on Facebook.    Yes, it was a textbook example of those EEEEEEEEVIL Conservatives to subjugate women.  That probably why "Rethuglicans" also deny Globull Wormening. . .

Except, it didn't actually happen.   Meet Meg (Eye Bleach here)




It seems, after the police investigated, it turned out that the post came from Meg's very own laptop.  During a period it was shown to be in her possession.   So not only is she dishonest AND an attention whore, but she's got lots and lots of burning stoopid.  She COULD have gone to an internet cafe, or used a web terminal in the library or somesuch. . .  .  but no !!!  (And yes, she HAS been charged by the police. ) But it gets BETTER. . . .because apparently Meg is just one of many wild Burning Stoopids wandering around at UW. . .   it seems, that EVEN AFTER she was cited, a page popped up with no less that 34 people have pledged allegiance to her innocence. . .
Still, Meg is a VERY special woman.  Because she is the second of teh Burning Stoopid to cause a new word to be coined. . . . .

Today's addition to the Lexicon is:   "Tawanaing".   Defined as the act of purposely making it look like you were attacked in order to draw publicity, sympathy, etc.   

The root of the word is the Tawana Brawley case. For those of you who aren't as old as the Wizard is, she was a 15-year-old girl in New York who claimed to be kidnapped and raped by 6 white men, including policemen.  She was found naked, smeared with feces, and racial and sexual slurs written on her body, apparently in charcoal.

At the time, this was a big story, massive uproar.  Everyone was talking about it, especially a small-time preacher and activist from Brooklyn, the Rev. Al Sharpton . . . in fact, he and Tawana's lawyers talked so much about it, that they claimed a Prosecutor was actively covering up the case.   Eventually, a Grand Jury concluded that there was exactly ZERO evidence.  The Attorney eventually sued for defamation against Ms. Brawley, Rev. Al, and her lawyers and won.   By this time, Tawana had disappeared from public sight.  Rev. Al's supporters paid his damages, one of the lawyers finally paid damages in 2012, and one is STILL paying damages.

What of Tawana ??  She was finally found and and served papers for the damages she owes earlier this year.  

The years have not been kind to Ms. Brawley: some before and after pictures:


1985



2013

Given the results of Tawanaing, I've asked a police artist to give his best estimation of what our Meg will look like, 30 or so years from now. . .


Meg Lanker-Simons, ~2045

But there's MUCH more today, lots of Runner-ups:


And another example. .  .   Now mind you, thugs are still running rampant in the schools, but hey, the Administrators can shoot fish in a barrel . . . . for a Felony charge. . .


Our next example, I'm passing over to SondraK, whose blog is a daily must-read. . .  HOW does Miami spend a grant to reduce violence ??  Why, create a violence-prevention unit that can't POSSIBLY be abused. . . .

And today's final runner-up, the PTA of Sunnycrest Elementary in Washington State. . . who decided the PERFECT way to show appreciation to the teachers was to hold a "Talkin' Trash" week, highlighted by "White Trash Wednesday", where the teachers would be served BBQ off of garbage can lids. . .

******************************

That wraps it up for today's Burning Stoopid.   But have no fear, there will be more tomorrow. . . . .God help us all. . . .
