A very, very stupid woman from Florida is offended that JC Penny’s sells a shirt with the slogan, “Sun’s Out, Guns Out” on it. She claims it “glorifies gun violence.”
All right, this woman is clearly an idiot. But is she any more of an idiot than the people who took ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ off the TV because of the Confederate Flag on the General Lee? Not really. Is she any more stupid than the people who voted for Obama because they really believed Mitt Romney was going to outlaw tampons? Not really.
We live in a culture that caters to, celebrates, and politically empowers stupid people.
