C is for clueless

I make it point to avoid the right wing crackpots as much as possible so I'm not exactly sure what the genesis of this particular bit of cluelessness is about. I gather it has something to do with the general pants wetting that went on among the crowd that sees evil Mooslim terrorists in every shadow. When they heard the Boston bomb kids were born in Chechnya, they apparently started calling for immediate retribution against the evel furriners. The problem being they were confusing Chechnya with the Czech Republic, or more probably the now defunct Czechoslovakia. Which led the Czech embassy to release this statement:
As more information on the origin of the alleged perpetrators is coming to light, I am concerned to note in the social media a most unfortunate misunderstanding in this respect. The Czech Republic and Chechnya are two very different entities - the Czech Republic is a Central European country; Chechnya is a part of the Russian Federation.
This of course launched a snark contest on the twitters. The winner being:
Atrios: time to invade chechnyaslovakia
So much of the fear of the far right extremists is based on pure ignorance, fostered and reinforced by the grifters who profit from manufactured terror. Helluva cruel way to make money.

You'd think there'd be a movement amongst any actual conservatives still out there to disassociate themselves from these ignorant morons. I think I see cracks in the bulwark of false dignity he tries to maintain.

What kind of a "teacher" would call someone a communist and a Fascist at the same time? Maybe a call to the Dumfukistan embassy would be in order.

On the internet you can pretend to be anything...

I don't mind indulging the idiot occasionally, but only if he comes up with something more original than stupid questions proving he didn't comprehend the post.

The last shall be first, at least in their own minds.
