#7346: They can if they're pretending

All the blue checkmarks on Twattler who are pretending they don't know that the people who are paid to smuggle people into the US from Mexico are called "coyotes".

Perhaps I am wrong. I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer but I do have a pretty good retentive faculty for things that I've read, sometimes to the point of being able to see the page in my memory. It's just possible--I suppose--that there are a number of people who get all their information from the mainstream talk media, read very little, have neither the curiosity nor the intellectual horsepower to learn things on their own, yet consider themselves educated and well-read solely by virtue of the fact that they vote the right way. And who would therefore consider a President they don't like to be stupid enough to claim that wild animals are bringing humans across the border. And who would also never think to do even so much as one search on Googe to see if there's another meaning for the term, because of course OrangeManBad is the one who's ignorant and stupid and full of shit.

...and who therefore would wallow in their ignorance, purposefully and solely in order to enable the use of the only insult available to leftists: "Hey, Trump said something stupid! Boy, he's really stupid, isn't he?"

The Jews in the Attic test.
I [look] at all laws that restricted freedom with a view to the impact it would have in a worst case scenario of our government run amok. Will this law make it difficult or impossible to protect innocent life from a government intent on their imprisonment or death? ... [I]f it fails this test no further discussion is really needed, the law must be opposed in the most vigorous manner possible.
Emphasis his.
