Sorry, Bigots: You're Dumb

Abby Zimet

Science has confirmed what some of us long suspected but were (sometimes) too polite to say: People who hold racist and rabid right-wing views are, to put it bluntly, stupid, or at least stupider than other people. A new study finds that children with low intelligence grow into Tea Party-ish adults who hold socially conservative views and would like black, gay and other troublesome types to just go away, please. It is suspected that some of these people will not be happy with the findings and may even take to the streets with signs like this. As always, we wish them better spelling.

"There is reason to believe that strict right-wing ideology might appeal to those who have trouble grasping the complexity of the world."

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.
