A Deeply Silly People

even this ijit can see it

[“Real Time with Bill Maher” on Friday]

“…the classic phrase from Lawrence of Arabia when Lawrence tells his Bedouin allies that as long as they stay a bunch of squabbling tribes, they will remain a Silly People. Well, we’re the Silly People now.”

…“You know who doesn’t care that there’s a stereotype of a Chinese man in a Dr. Suess book? China. All 1.4 billion of them could give a crouching tiger flying f*ck. Because they’re not a silly people.”

…“China once put up a 57-story skyscraper in 19 days. They demolished and rebuilt the Sanyuan Bridge in Beijing in 43 hours. … We binge-watch. They binge-build.”

…“You’re not going to win the battle for the 21st Century if you are a Silly People.”

And who is working so hard to stampede us into being ASillyPeople™?
Cui Bono?
