Useful Idiots

From Chris at the Badger Blog Alliance:
A useful idiot is someone who, while choosing to zealously promote a cause, ends up advancing a very different one through stupidity, naivete or inattention. The useful idiot never sees the big picture and typically are driven by blind hate and ignorance. They are led by and feel they belong to, an arrogant and self proclaimed leftist intelligentsia, who think you are too stupid to know the truth of any subject matter.
I think I know some of these types... Might even have a few relatives who fall into this category.
If the left can say that Bush is causing more terrorism around the world by confronting the ones who want to kill us in the name of Radical Islam, then couldn'’t you conclude that the examples above are doing the same by energizing groups who don'’t agree with them? Everyone is for animal rights. But to become a vegan because of it is foolish. CBS and ABC seem to have a vested interest in anything that they can call a failure of the Busadministrationon. Notice how many shows and supposed news has about the reduced numbers of hurricanes this year, about the economy doing so well, how much more tax revenue the feds are collecting, about the number of Iraqi'’s that are now going to school, how Bush has quadrupled the amount of education spending in the last 5 years, or the fact that we have not been attacked on our soil since 911?
This is good stuff! Read the whole thing, it makes ya go hmmmmmm..... you might know a few "useful idiots" too. It should make you feel a whole lot better about yourself. :)
