Only fools believe

June 27, 2022

By Mike Weland

A fool is defined as a person who acts unwisely or imprudently, and a good way to identify a fool is to prove that he or she denies the existence or validity of a thing that is real, true or valid ... refusing to see truth. An undeniable aspect of a fool is that rather than to see or accept a truth, often simple, logical and obvious, they instead imagine and cling to ideas and concepts easily disputed as lies and continue to reach for ever more far-fetched and false explanations by which to support and defend "their" truth.

There is no "their" truth; truth applies equally to all.

There are, however, "their" lies, and unfortunately we are living in a time when liars hold sway, lauding as intelligent those fools believing with unctuous devotion those who manipulate the narrative so as to keep them from even considering logic, common sense. Asserting their moral stature, ridiculing those who questionn.

A President of the United States, given a Sharpie, can draw an obvious circle on a meteorological map, in time of crises, and convince his believers that a hurricane will go beyond the bounds predicted by experts. It didn't. Trump was proven a fool, as were those who believed in him.

Trump, Mike Lindell, Rudy Giuliani and several U.S. Congress folk all assured the voters of the United States that the election of 2020 was stolen, that Donald J. was the rightful president. All, without doubt, lied.

More than 60 courts dismissed each case as unfounded.

On January 6, President Donald J. Trump refused to accept fact as established by the judiciary that he lost the election of 2020. To the detriment of the mores of this nation and violating the Constitution of these United States, Donald J. Trump deliberately and with malice intent incited a deadly and violent insurrection in an attempt to prevent the Congress of the United States from certifying his loss.

His effort failed only because some public servants asserted their oath to the constitution, not to a racist fool ascended to the presidency in the wake of the eight year term of a good man man not of the "right" color.

In the months since, Mike Lindell has promised to prove the truth of voter fraud. He has irrefutably failed on every level, showing up as a fool with nothing of credence to say. "Watch 2000 Mules!"

All lies believed by fools.

Watch the January 6 Select Committee hearings. Raise your best argument in the face of proof and sworn testimony presented by sworn witnesses. Lie as  strenuously as you want, you will come across as wrong.
