Every watch those videos from California's "boardwalk" (name of the place escapes me right now)? Sometimes the fellow takes the camera to a local university.

Truly makes one shudder for the future when hearing the "blissful" ignorance of the populace.

Public education at its best.

Yeah, but that schtick has been around forever as entertainment.

If someone were to shove a microphone into your face and ask you questions you were completely unprepared to answer, you might sound just as stupid.

Also you don't know how many of those interviews end up on the cutting room floor...

Like what Ray Comfort does.

Unfortunately, people predisposed to believe the worst will not have to look far to find it. Drinking Beverage


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

There is no bottom to the barrel of Drumpfuck stupidity.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

I think this is a case of people distrusting the mainstream media so much that they disagree with anything it says.

Well, yes. Hopefully this incident will serve as a wake up to those who have been swallowing too much propaganda.

Remind me again how Democracy is supposed to work with such a proudly ignorant populace?

Same as it always has ... through dissatisfaction with the status quo.

No, it never really was.

Is it still a republic?

No.

Democracy and republic are not the same category.

To be fair, the guy they voted for doesn't know what the Declaration of Independence nor the Constitution say either. It's just unreasonable to expect them to know these things. And it's even more unreasonable to expect them to behave rationally, logically, or intelligently when confronted with facts if those facts don't come from a Trump-approved medium. Duh!
