If you ever wondered why the people of Ireland seemingly ‘put up’ with crooked politicians, abusive clergy and all the other gobshitery that surrounds us on a daily basis then listening to Liveline will give you the answers you need. It’s because they are cretins.
Today’s ‘Video games are evil and should be banned because they are evil because I say so and not based on any evidence’ show was an extravaganza of ill-informed, half-witted, moronic fuckwittery of the highest order. Some of the people they had on were just so ridiculously ignorant of anything resembling a fact it’s frightening.
Honestly, these people are idiots who clearly have nothing better to do with their time. And these idiots are representative of much of Ireland because people hear the idiots on the radio and agree with the idiots and soon the idiots point of view becomes conventional wisdom and on we go.
It's fucking depressing, frankly.
Although what is more depressing is that the politicians are even more stupid—the only reason that they get to boss everyone about is because they are venal sycophants possessed of an exceptional but creepy animal deviousness.
Oh, yeah, and fat wads of our cash...
