Supporters of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump have been called racists, neo-Nazis, a basket of deplorables and now a “confederacy of dunces’ according to one respected conservative columnist. Max Boot, a big cog in the establishment war propaganda machine that is all-in with Queen Hillary so she can continue her brilliant work in remaking the Middle East in her image just oozes with contempt over the prospect that Trump has a real shot at the presidency. Like all of the other eggheads and so-called intellectuals who are acclaimed wizards when it comes to the media but could fuck up a two-car funeral, Boot just cannot imagine that the rabble would have the indignity to shake their pitchforks at their betters by rejecting Mrs. Clinton at the ballot box.

Boot stomps on millions of hard working Americans in his piece at Foreign Policy entitled “America Is Turning Into a Confederacy of Dunces”:

In struggling for some explanation for the inexplicable events of this election season — in particular, the fact that someone as unqualified and ignorant as Donald Trump is as close as he is to the most powerful post in the world — I keep coming back to a conversation that a friend had with her trainer at a posh gym in Manhattan. The New York City trainer is a bright and personable woman in her 20s. But when my friend casually referred to Hillary Clinton’s hearings on Benghazi, Libya, she was befuddled. Not just because she had never heard of the Benghazi controversy … but because she had never heard of the secretary of state, the State Department, or of U.S. ambassadors. She was just as blissfully unaware of the existence of the two houses of Congress, with each appointing committees to focus on matters of national concern.

This trainer is not a high school dropout or a recent immigrant. She is a native-born American who graduated from a four-year college that I had heard of. And yet somehow in 16 years of education she failed to learn the most elementary facts about our government.

AND

What are the results of this dismaying lack of knowledge? The most obvious consequence is the extent to which Trump and Bernie Sanders — the fascist and the socialist — have transfixed the electorate this year in spite of their complete absence of workable policy proposals. Both have engaged in wish fulfillment, essentially promising, as Trump explicitly said, “to make every dream you ever dreamed for your country come true.” Although Sanders and Trump differ a bit in the content of their dreams, they both promise to spend trillions of dollars for new programs without offering any realistic method of paying for their promises.

The man with the really big brain uses a lot of words to just say that Americans are stupid. One of the driving reasons why the Trump revolution is about to start sizing up the likes of Boot for the guillotines is exactly because of the condescension of these type of snobs. The Foreign Policy piece is a follow-up to his July screed in the Hillary Clinton New York Times “How the ‘Stupid Party’ Created Donald Trump”, a 1,400 word tantrum penned after the Never Trumpers failed to steal the nomination from Trump at the convention.

In case you haven’t guessed, Mr. Boot is one of the ivory tower dwelling elitist snobs who find the very idea of an America first set of policies to be as loathsome as the proverbial toadstool sandwich.  He has a good deal of clout with the Star-Bellied Sneetches of the world considering that one of his exalted titles is as a “Jeane J. Kirkpatrick Senior Fellow for National Security Studies” at the globalist Council on Foreign Relations. When not munching his arugula at hoity toity CFR banquets, Boot found time to serve as a foreign policy advisor to John McCain, Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio, a trio of bumbling dolts who could be appropriately tabbed as the three stooges.

His resume and CFR perch means a lot in some circles (like Bohemian Grove) but couldn’t buy him a cup of coffee in flyover country which is where this election is being fought.
