The 15 Most Stupid Things Liberals Said in 2013

-By Warner Todd Huston

Well, we are coming to the end of the year and that usually brings us to lists of things that happened during the year. To get a jump on that trend, I give you the top 15 most stupid things said by Democrats and liberals in the year 2013.

Certainly what should appear on a “top” list of anything is subjective and we are certain we will miss something really, really stupid that some halfwitted, demagoguing Democrat said sometime during the year, but we’ve come up with fifteen real whoppers, here.

Naturally we just had to use a photo of the king of Democrat stupidity, Vice President Joe Biden, to adorn our list. Biden is a man who at a really once asked Missouri State Senator Chuck Graham “stand up” and be recognized. Chuck Graham is confined to a wheel chair.

Topping the list is most certainly what is now the most famous presidential lie in American history, “If you like your plan, you can keep it.” This line of BS was issued over and over again–not just in 2013 but since 2008–by none other than President Obama himself. It has to rank as the most stupid thing any Democrat has said for years. But Obama isn’t the only leftist running about saying stupid things. So, starting with number fifteen and going to number one, here is our list.

Number 15:

“You know what I heard… that it’s not black on black crime that’s killing kids in Chicago, it’s actually cops shooting those kids.”

This load of horse hockey was uttered by Chicago Democrat Monique Davis.

Chicago is closing in on some 400 murders for 2013 of which 80 percent are black. One would think that the national news would be aghast if the Chicago police had shot over 350 blacks in the Windy City! Of course, Rep. Davis is full of crap and is just pushing more racebaiting nonsense.

Number 14:

“Men often do need maternity care.” (Seen at about 2:30 into the video above)

This blather was unloaded on the country by Obama’s Health and Human Services chief, Kathleen Sebelius.

Number 13:

“Gabby Giffords, my good friend, was shot and mortally wounded.”

Our clown of a Vice President, Joe Biden, said this in March.

Um, Joey, if Giffords was “mortally wounded” she’d be dead, you moron.

Number 12:

“Believe me, as a busy single mother… er, I shouldn’t say single. When you have a husband who’s president it can feel a little single… but he’s there.”

First Lady Michelle Obama is apparently dreaming the dreamy dream of dumping Barack with this line she blurted out in April. And with Barack’s wandering eyes and rushin hand’s with blond bombshell and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela, one can understand why Michelle is already starting to consider herself a “single mother.”

Number 11:

“I do think there are certain times we should infringe on your freedom.”

Said the nation’s worst buttinski, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, in March. He thinks government has a right to suppress your rights. Nice, eh?

Number 10:

“We don’t need to be having something like sequestration that’s going to cause these jobs losses, over 170 million jobs that could be lost.”

This is what California Democrat Maxine Waters warbled in February of this year. Of course, the nation has less than 170 million jobs in the first place with only about 143 million people employed when she made that stupid statement. So, she thinks we’d lose more jobs than we even have available? Idiot.

Number 9:

“These are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now, they’re going to shoot them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these high-capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available.” (Seen in the video above at the end of the clip)

This brilliant point was laid on the people of Colorado by dummy Representative Diana DeGette (D, CO) during a recent discussion about guns. This fool is wholly unqualified to talk about or make policy on guns, though, as she is painfully ignorant of the fact that a pistol or rifle ammo magazine can be re-used over and over again.

Number 8:

“There are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die…. There’s a level of disrespect for the office that occurs. And that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he’s African American. There’s no question about that and it’s the kind of thing nobody ever says but everybody’s thinking it.”

This was blathered by TV talk show queen Oprah Winfrey in November.

So, you racists have to die and everyone hats Barack only because he’s black. Blah, blah, blah.

Around this same period Oprah claimed that a store clerk at a luxury Swiss boutique was a “racist” who didn’t want to serve her because she was black. Oprah later had to apologize for her lie.

Number 7:

“We haven’t had a very collective notion of ‘these are our children,’ so, part of it is that we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents, or kids belong to their families and recognize that kids belong to whole communities.”

Your kids belong to the government, so says MSNBC’s dumbest talking head, Melissa Harris-Perry.

This is also the same idiot that said that kids shouldn’t count as real human beings “until parents decide” they should qualify as “life.”

Number 6:

“Open borders attacks the root cause of Muslim extremism… it’s Muslim poverty that’s threatening our security, not our immigration system… Giving these men the chance to work here could diminish their poverty, their anger, and their misunderstanding of the U.S. before they are radicalized… Open borders will improve the world.”

This was the absurd idea to stop terrorism burbled out in May by MSNBC’s resident racist–well, one of them anyway–Touré Neblett.

Number 5:

“With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.”

This failed attempt by Hillary Clinton to brush away the deaths of four Americans in the terror attacks on our embassy facilities in Benghazi, Libya was made in January at a hearing on Capitol Hill. We are all hopeful that these ignorant words are hung around her neck like an albatross for the rest of her miserable life.

Number 4:

“Tell your attacker that you have a disease or are menstruating. Vomiting or urinating may also convince the attacker to leave you alone.”

This was the timely and sage advice from the University of Colorado given to female students to help them avoid being raped.

No, they were serious. This was not from The Onion.

Number 3:

“These statements uttered by Robertson are more offensive than the bus driver in Montgomery, Alabama, more than 59 years ago. At least the bus driver, who ordered Rosa Parks to surrender her seat to a white person, was following state law. Robertson’s statements were uttered freely and openly without cover of the law, within a context of what he seemed to believe was ‘white privilege.'”

Racebaiting “Reverend” Jesse Jackson made this absurd comparison only days ago.

Number 2:

“Pretty soon we’ll all be leaving for the Fourth of July recess. Next week, when we celebrate Independence Day we’ll also be observing health independence.”

California Democrat Representative and former Speaker of the House (I just love to say that) Nancy Pelosi thought that it would be a great idea that instead of celebrating Independence Day on July fourth we should celebrate “health independence day” because of Obamacare.

Who needs that old, boring holiday created by dead, racist white guys, anyway? We have a new communist-inspired holiday to celebrate!

That is only one of the many, many stupid things Pelosi said this year. Only weeks ago, for instance, Pelosi revealed that she obviously thinks you mothers out there are losers when she said that she was once a stay-at-home mother, too, but then she “got a life” and ran for Congress.

What an ignoramus.

Number 1:

And, as mentioned in the intro to this story, Barack Obama wins top honors for his constant lie that we could keep our health insurance if we liked it, a blatant lie that he knowingly blurted out dozens and dozens of times since 2008.

But by the December the nation learned at last that Obama was lying through his teeth and millions of Americans began to lose their health plans and their doctors and hospitals as Obamacare began to kick in. But, worse, this will continue in 2014 as hundreds of thousands of businesses will have to cancel healthcare plans next year to comply with Obamacre.

We can’t keep our healthcare plans, Mr. President, and you knew it all along. You lied.

Even the left-wing Politifact has called Obama’s claim the “lie of the year.”

Here are a few videos of compilations of dumb comments of years past…

So, there you have it, folks. I am sure there are thousands of other stupid Democrats that could fit on this list, but here is ours. What do you think?
