The great thing about free speech is that you can say pretty much anything you want to say with very few exceptions, which were created by people who want everyone to think alike. That being said, while you have the right to free speech in the U.S., you also leave yourself open to criticism and ridicule should you say something objectively stupid — even subjectively at times as well.
Speaking of stupid takes, actress Bette Midler posted a meme take to Twitter on Sunday that just goes to show how little elitists like Midler think of the average American.
“You BOUGHT The gas Guzzling Truck,” the meme begins. “Go ahead & WHINE about gas prices. I swear I’m listening.”
People that have no concept of what it’s like to live in the real world — and haven’t for decades — mock the pain inflicted on said average American and straight up admit that they don’t even care enough to hear what someone might have to say on the topic.
They can’t be bothered, unless it allows them the ability to look down their noses at you atop their ivory perches.
Of course the truck pictured in the meme is waving a Trump flag, as if the only people who own trucks in the U.S. are supporters of former President Donald Trump.
This is the close-minded stupidity we’re dealing with here. Midler doesn’t care if she insults an entire group of people, because tolerance for a far-leftist only extends one way.
The bottom line is that people like Midler are not only worthy of mockery from plebs like us, but mockery of such individuals should be encouraged. That’s only one of two ways to properly deal with clowns like Midler.
The other way is to ignore them completely like they don’t exist, because it defeats the entire purpose of wanting to become as big of a star as Midler is — that purpose being to try and find a cure for their own insecurities.
