You probably weren’t aware that Obama was a Star Wars fan! His next sympathy note will probably go to Hogwarts. (If you’re wondering who “Agent Smith” is look in the Matrix!) (Footnote – if you are interested in that other name: Pol Pot)
Check that vote, Ms. Stein. It has about as much relevance as the other votes you’re “checking.”
Pol Pot gets my vote for the most moronic mass murdered of all time. The Cambodian Genocide was carried out by Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge. You can think of these nice people as “ecologists.” They wanted to return to an agrarian society where everyone shares (they also were communists if you weren’t aware).
The Khmer Rouge government arrested, tortured, and eventually executed anyone suspected of belonging to several categories of supposed “enemies”:
- Anyone with connections to the former government or with foreign governments.
- Ethnic Vietnamese, ethnic Chinese, ethnic Thai and other minorities in the Eastern Highlands, Cambodian Christians (most of whom were Catholic, and the Catholic Church in general), Muslims and, of course, Buddhist Monks. Basically, they didn’t like ANYONE!
- “Economic saboteurs”: many of the former urban dwellers (who had not starved to death in the first place) were deemed to be guilty by virtue of their lack of agricultural ability.
- Professionals and intellectuals—in practice this included almost everyone with an education and people who understood a foreign language. But now for the winner of the Moronic Sadist award! Pol Pot, genius that he was, “reasoned” that he needed to find all the “intellectuals.” He came to the conclusion that “intellectuals read a lot.” Therefore, they would eventually need glasses. So he MURDERED EVERYONE WEARING GLASSES!
