How Can Someone So Pretty be So Stupid and Ignorant?
I don’t know who Leighton Meester is. She’s an actress of some notoriety. It’s OK to be an actress. It’s OK for actors and actresses to express their opinions. What’s not OK is to be an ignorant actor or actress and express ignorant and stupid opinions.
I don’t use the word stupid very much. My wife and I rarely if ever used it around our two sons. The same is true of our grandchildren. If I ever use the word, it’s needed. If I used it all the time, as many people do, it loses its effectiveness.
The same is true of expletives. Sometimes a well-timed and well-placed expletive in a film is understandable, but to use them dozens of times dilutes any impact it might have.
So, what did Leighton Meester say that was so stupid?

If she could change any one event in all of world history — including possibly going back in time to thwart genocidal dictators — . . . Leighton Meester would choose to ensure Donald Trump lost the 2016 presidential election. (Breitbart)
I get it. She doesn’t like Donald Trump being President. I’m OK with that. “Like, if I could snap my fingers? Trump would not be elected. That’s all,” Meester told the folks at “Yahoo! Style” in an interview.
Here’s the stupid thing she added. Actually, it’s worse than stupid. Worse than ignorant. It’s downright evil. “The actress noted that she may have opted to change an altogether different historic event had Trump not won the presidency in November.” And what person would that have been? Adolf Hitler:
“As of right now, I feel that way. Before Trump, I would have [wished] that Hitler was never born. Humans are so f*cked up.”
I must agree with her last point. Some are. How does someone compare Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler? I know, she’s not the only one. There’s the race card. The anti-woman card. The white privilege card. The anti-science card. The flat earth card. And the Hitler card. These cards are played when the opposition runs out of arguments and facts.
Does she have any idea of what Hitler did? In what way is Donald Trump in any way like Adolf Hitler? Where is the equivalent of Mein Kampf? Where are the planned meetings to determine how to wipe Jews off the face of the earth?1
But she’s all about “the facts.” “It’s pretty unbelievable that there are people out there who . . . just ignore the facts, and that’s pretty scary. Four years: Maybe we don’t have that long.”
Here are some facts:
Adolf Hitler oversaw the slaughter of six million Jews, as well as the murders of millions of others, including Polish, Serbian, and Russian political prisoners; the mentally and physically handicapped (who often underwent forced sterilization); gypsies, and gay people in concentration camps across Europe during World War II. The Nazi Holocaust of Europe’s Jews — who were singled out for destruction — is considered the most infamous genocide in modern history. Hitler’s victims were gassed to death, forced on so-called “death marches,” lined up to be shot in firing lines, and had their remains burned in crematoriums. Others starved to death or died from illnesses and diseases spread throughout the camps.
But Leighton Meester is pretty and is an actress, so we need to hear what she has to say even if what she says is stupid. Minds of mush who have no knowledge of history will be chanting her claims in the next anti-Trump march.
- For a chilling reenactment of the plan, see the HBO Film Conspiracy: The Meeting at Wannsee, starring StanleyTucci, Colin Firth, and David Threlfall. The two-hour meeting on January 20, 1942, sealed the fate of Jews in Europe. The approach taken by the thirty German bureaucrats was medicinal, a straight forward outline on how to solve the Jewish problem without ever using the words “kill” or “exterminate.” The law as it existed in Germany at the time was followed, giving them proper legal cover and justification for their actions.
