Reminder: Media Matters “research fellow” Oliver Willis claims he’s “like Kryptonite to stupid.”


Flashback: Oliver Willis screws up spelling in post mocking conservative stupidity.

The best part? Willis doesn’t get the mockery.

Perhaps he just needs someone to tweet in language he’ll understand. Luckily, conservatives are givers.

And since Willis brought up “dumb”:

Thanks for doing your part, Oliver!

    He’s (or hes) just pissed because POtuS hasn’t (hasnt) paid (payed) his (hi’s) mortgage, or got (gots) him a ‘phone.

    • Matthew Koch

      Classic stuff jonhartz!

      Like kryptonite to stupid?

      If stupid were a brush fire he’d be the gasoline can.

      • WingedBishop

        I wrote it in a language Oliver Willis could understand.

    • Marie

      History pretty much proves you wrong, moron.

      Liberalism is the philosophy of the lazy, and it has failed everywhere it’s been tried.

  • TDS

    He also misspelled the word “too” and forgot the comma:
    Oliver Willis

    Like kryptonite, too stupid.

    I hate dumb. It’s so liberal.

  • SCSIwuzzy

    Cut him a break… the Twinky factories haven’t fully re-opened yet. He hasn’t had his sponge cake and sugar crème enema in months… and it was all the fault of evil conservatives for refusing to cave to the demands of the noble union heroes.

  • Danny Wheeler

    *sings* Oh, if you want to be possessive, it’s just “I-T-S”, but if it’s supposed to be a contraction then it’s “I-T-apostrophe-S”, scalawag!

      wish i could make poke fun but im kind of lazy with the shift key also.

      see what i did there. but in all seriousness i am.

    Memo to Mister Willis:

    I’ll posit a question from and subsequent title of an episode of ‘Batman: The Animated Series’:

    “If you’re so smart. Why aren’t you rich?”

    Oh, wait. You seem to have answered that question quite succinctly.

  • waltermitty2012

    At Media Matters, the title of “Research Fellow” means that fellow over there does research.

    I would suggest Mr. Willis get a copy of “Grammar for Dummies”, but it might be over his head.

    • MyrmidoNOT

      Do they have a copy…in audio…for the “”reading” challenged??
      (Maybe MS “Sam” could read-it…for him?)

      • ImTheNana

        Or if they made sure it rhymed and had heaps of pictures. Is there a Dr Seuss version?

  • Section 9

    Jesus. Has this made the Onion yet?

    • MyrmidoNOT

      Nah. He didn’t bash Christians…

    • MyrmidoNOT

      Second pass: A short while ago, while “visiting” Madison…
      Heard a great description…of that area:

      Q: What do you call (or “how” do you define)…Madison, WI?
      A: It is eighty-four+ square-miles…of insanity…surrounded-by reality.

      Pretty much describes our Capital City…(remember the fleebaggers?)…

      • Brian H (wackobird)

        I am TRULY shocked that you just heard that. I do believe I have heard (instead of Dane County) the Isthmus, and just Madison Proper.
        With Madison, it is six square miles of insanity surrounded by reality. All the variations basically work very well though.

        • MyrmidoNOT

          Probably more ‘accurate’…although I should have
          used Madison…instead of Dane County.
          (Eighty-four+ square miles…) Thanx!

          Update/Edit: If you saw the party, who ‘explained’ the “joke”
          …it would make sense. Being from the upper FRV, never paid much attention to MSN…until ’06.
          Now, I’ll ‘correct the storyline…above. 😉

        • Harbormaster

          It’s way more than 6 square miles.

          “77 square miles surrounded by reality.”

      • Marjorie

        Sounds like Boulder, CO!

        • MyrmidoNOT

          Other than the ‘hook’…the “Onion” is from MSN…

  • MyrmidoNOT

    Hmmm…is he saying:
    “I aspire to p!ss-off half the population, after the I.R.S. hearings…
    when people are still incensed??” Good call, ‘maroon’…


    Dear Oliver Willis,
    First we do not have a clue who you are?
    Second, would you please describe what conservatism is?
    Third, how do you hate something that is only about individual self reliance, self respect, respect for others, self responsibility, self virtues, self morals, independent thought, to understand and accept that your destiny is based on you and your relationship to your creator, for only the greater good of man kind.
    Only when you understand this message will you be able to say that you have come to reality of knowing that you were once physically born an infant, then you became a toddler, pre-teen, teen, young adult and onward into adulthood and recognize, that “we all will suffer nicks, cuts, bruises, and will endure all types of physical, emotional, and mental pains”. And to Polarize and be stagnated, and Mark Time is declaring that One Person is avoiding the propensity of prospering in all things that have been bestowed upon they themselves. You have to look at where you have been to see where you need to go, for your own “personal” growth.
    The U.S. Constitution is a concept of life, it is not mired in tangibles!
    Is thumb sucking at your age acceptable to you?

    . . . . .
    We do appreciate the down clicks.
    Reality is based in being an adult. The purpose in the thumb sucking question was that hopefully examining thy inner self, and asking oneself that question, will lead one to do differently.

    • Ralphie85

      Excellent post

      • OLLPOH

        Mannnny thanks Ralphie85,
        Do appreciate the accolades. Just the possibility to express that Reality is based in adult; and the ObamaGovt is doing a fine job of Taking Over Absolutely Everyone in all the facets of their own individual beings, and that to Polarize and to be Complacent is Damaging not only to oneself, yet also is extremely damaging to society as a whole and will bring us to Totalitarian Utopian Chaos, which Saul Alinski, whom Obama is firmly scholar-ed in himself, along with Black Liberation Theology, Critical Race Theory, Marxism (and has many soldiers) neglects to consider the end result and know how maniacal, and atrocious it is. Example if we just throw all of our money at the firefighters to have a big pension plan, yet they don’t have any fire extinguishers or water, and we are not sure when it is going to rain… yet, they have hoses and no water does that create chaos for the house that is on fire? Yet, we have to by government call fireman heroes. How will we expect people to be responsible for themselves if we don’t expect them to be accountable. Self governance versus tyrants telling us they have all the answers/slavery, leads us to the proverbial question of “what is the individual preferences?”.
        The Polarization and Complacency does Not bring about change to human beings. To recognize polarization and complacency is the cause to recognize, that one has been living in the inner child, inner parent and the Adult is what brings about doing things different.

    • MyrmidoNOT

      What about the “up” clicks??
      Thought the “down” implied…you were over the target? 😉

  • trixiewoobeans

    He can make a Booger talk!!!

    • Brian H (wackobird)

      Just. Not. English.

  • Elaine

    Ollie doesn’t have to worry about all those DUMB CONSERVATIVES. The dictator is using the IRS to take care of them, and the Jews, and the Christians, and all those silly pro life types, and most of all, anyone who opposes him and dares to say it…
    all at the same time!

    • Brian H (wackobird)

      Are there lions in this story??


    OK, just for kicks and giggles, let’s pretend that this mental athlete had capitalized the pronoun I, used a semicolon instead of a comma between the two independent clauses, and also used the apostrophe in the proper place on the contraction “it’s” for “it is”.

    Let’s pretend his tweet was, “I hate conservatism; it’s so dumb.” I understand the character limit on Twitter, but what a compelling argument! Kind of like a 3rd grader: “I hate my teacher, Mrs. Crabapple; she’s so dumb!”

    Keep tweeting, Oliver, you’re doing conservatism a good turn.

  • Ntr

    This guy, even though he isn’t, comes across as a lefty political “blogger” from Tumblr. Seriously, why does the left attract the biggest, most illiterate (and/or lazy) idiots? Read over his website though. It’s great for a good laugh.

    • OLLPOH

      Were we to go there, would we need to towel off afterwards? Or wash the stench off? Or fumigate? Antiseptics available?

  • neoface

    This sounds like Oblamer’s “there is no there there”, probably from the same school of grammar. While we are on the subject, there is also a difference between your(pronoun) and you’re(you are).

      That is my theory, anyhoo… 😉


    Send him to North Korea. Would he think that Conservatism is dumb again, or would he keep on drinking the Kool-Aid?

  • Greg

    • Im_Done

      He’s an idiot liberal (but I repeat myself) blogger who attempted to be relevant 6 or 8 years ago.

      Now he just feeds from the Soros trough at Media Matters.

      He really, really, *really* likes the Koolaid.

  • Brad

    It IS dumb. Conservatism is a losing ideology. This country is a lot more liberal than it used to be in the 80s or 50s. Liberalism always wins in the end. Sorry.

    • BadGirloftheNorth

      Liberalism ALWAYS wins like when, really? The Roman Empire, Greece, Cyprus, Spain, Russian Empire, USSR, ???? ALL fell due to a liberal belief system of NO economic discipline (read our welfare system something for nothing) rising bureaucracy (read obama and his henchmen) and people like you who think — wait, you don’t think.

      • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

        Greece, Cuba, Venezuela and North Korea… You’re next! And when your economy collapses, you’ll come running to us, the U.S. #PaulHarvey But no thanx to KING FINK OBAMA, we may be in the same boat… Jawamax #RightWard

    • IceColdTroll

      That says nothing about who are the smart ones and who are the dumb ones. Although the fact that you don’t seem to understand that — HAHA!

    • Mark81150

      huh…. I R Brad.. seems to fall into the “I hate you mostest, there 4 I’s wins”.. class of clown car occupants..

      Name a time when conservatism hasn’t existed, or had a revival.. Obama won, by suppressing his scandals till AFTER his election, his pet media is now turning on him for his stupid betrayal of press freedom.. and liberals across the fruited plains are screaming hatred and denial like it was an actual response to the collapse of Obama gang of thugs..

      you never learn.. Conservatism is reborn every time you leftists try to crush freedoms, every time.. your pop culture ate your brain, and rappers are not the font of knowledge that lefty kids seem to think..

      Our roots are far deeper, with much greater intellectual wisdom…

      and we always win.

      in time.

    He also did not capitalize “i” to start his sentence.

    I guess Oliver Willis doesn’t know he’s a token… so sad.

    Whatchoo talkin’ ’bout, Willis?

    • Ralph_Gizzip

      That’s two thumbs up right there.

  • Jim

    I love how he follows up with “they won’t listen”. Because when I tell people I hate them and that I think they’re dumb, I always expect them to listen to whatever I have to say after that.

    • Mark81150

      I suppose he expected weeping praises of his God like wisdom converting us to liberalism.. or something..

      That is an ignorant response of his.. I usually ignore anyone who starts with, “I hate you stupid”..

      well I mean by ignore throw up against a wall…. but that’s just me..

    The Organized Left has been indoctrinating, hiring and paying (off) black Democrat politicians, activists and pundits for five decades now. The self-aware need not apply.

    Oliver is a poster boy for the type of person the Organized Left likes to use.
