What is the average IQ of a Deplorable?

“He’s going to be the best and he’s not going to sit and explain every single detail because not everybody’s mindset can understand it. So his incredible vision, future vision for the country is what matters.” – Trump supporter Ayhan Pauwelyn speaking to reporters at the Phoenix rally last night

We know what color they are, we know their average age, their religion, their median household income and now, based on the telling quote above, we should be able to approximate their IQ. I am estimating it is somewhere between tree bark and moss.

“He’s not going to sit and explain every single detail because not everybody’s mindset can understand it.” Since Trump first announced that he was running for President I have been waiting for this explanation. I have kept asking myself, “What am I missing?” What does this man know, what can this man do that I just don’t understand? Now I have my answer. I am apparently one of the 65% whose “mindset” simply can’t grasp the hallucinations of the Great Wizard. His “incredible vision” is just to deep, to rich, to thick, to freaking mind-blowing for me to comprehend. Guess what, I am not alone. It appears, at least to me, even the Deplorable Nation can’t explain it either.

At this point it is easier to list the people and institutions that Trump doesn’t blame for all of his and the worlds problems because there is just one not at fault…….Donald J. Trump. Everything and everyone else is preventing him from, wait for it, Making America Great Again!

I hate making this comparison but I do find it revealing, Adolf Hitler rose to prominence in the early years of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (commonly known as the Nazi Party) by making fiery speeches advocating extreme nationalism. His rise was aided in part by his willingness to use and encourage violence in advancing his political objectives and he recruited party members who were willing to do the same. Like Trump, Hitler didn’t win the popular vote. He was named Chancellor of Germany through the electoral control of the Nazi Party.

He’s down-home American. He says it from his heart and he loves our country, and that is why there are thousands of people out there. We love this man.” – Trump supporter Diane Bivona

I am not sure whose or which America Ms. Bivona is referring to but for me, Donald Trump does not represent the “down-home American”. Apparently I have been living in the wrong America and that is what concerns me, how 35% can decide what America should be or look like.

Don’t think we are too smart, or too sophisticated to prevent a repeat of history. There are patterns, patterns easy to detect. Discontent with the prevailing political party. Discounting the power, the influence and the truth of the press and Hitlers discrimination against Jews could just as easily be Trumps bias against Muslims.

The genocide of six million European Jews was a horrible chapter in the history of this world. Honestly there are no words to even begin to describe how horrible. Let’s not repeat this horrendous act on another religious group by dropping bombs on a specific sect of Muslims our President has labeled as radical and view the innocents caught-up in the massacre as simply collateral damage.

Hyperbole? Maybe, and then again, maybe not. Am I the only one who finds it intriguing that “our” President requires, needs these kind of monthly Rally’s, these kind of ego fixes? We know he loves, he thrives on the adulation, but look at the frenzy he creates. It is frightening. What he stirs up is more discontent, more anger, more hatred for what, so he can gloat and glow for an hour in front of 15,000 people? Trump is not the President of unity but then again he has never claimed to be.

What is the average IQ of a Deplorable? Hopefully high enough to wake-up one morning and say “Oh shit what is this man doing to our country?” I wouldn’t hold my breath. What are you going to do?

    It continues to astound me the number of people who are so completely bewitched by this individual. But I guess that’s what happens when someone continuously rails against all that’s “wrong” in the world (according to their viewpoint) and promises to make it all better. (Especially when it comes to getting rid of anything to do with that “Muslin Obama.”)

  4. Superb post. Could not agree more with your point of view on this horrific man and the dolts who blindly worship him.

  5. People are too proud to admit they were wrong in public. My uncle had brain surgery about a week ago. After the surgery, he has been confused at times. The nurse asked him who the president was, he said we have no president. He was joking, he knew that Trump is president.

  7. Just came across this video that may shine some light on your question as to the IQ of his supporters….https://youtu.be/qXbu758qvTg. Granted, a large part of it is comedic in nature, but there is some ‘science’ imbedded :-).

  8. Those with intelligence have certainly put it into the service of rationalizing the completely indefensible.

    Good stuff. In case you’ve never read ‘Political Ponerology’ I provide a quote (below) by a clinical psychologist who was one of an underground group of psychologists and psychiatrists in the former Soviet Union who secretly studied the life-cycles of totalitarian states. Trump fits the profile of a ‘spellbinder’, a personality disordered individual who lies as easily as he breathes. The spellbinder is the last or next to last ‘leader’ before a nation sinks into a totalitarian state (a ‘pathocracy’). If Trump doesn’t lead the USA into a bloodbath the next ‘leader’ is likely to be a psychopath, who in turn quickly becomes controlled by a background group of psychopaths (it goes without saying that a bloodbath is then just as likely).

    ‘Political Ponerology’ states that the reason a nation begins to become sick is it’s refusal to look at the injustices that allowed it to become privileged (e.g. wealthy). This refusal to see the injustices its forced on others necessitates altering its world view slightly. This altered world view means it can no longer see slightly sick people. These slightly sick people rise up the ranks. They then prepare the way for the next type of sick (usually biologically deviant) people. This repeats. The process can take a few generations before it gets to the stage where psychopaths take the reigns of power. The psychopaths are then forced to impoverish and destroy as many neurotypicals (normal people) in their own nation as possible in order to stay in control.

    A few of the important takeaways from the book are:

    1) The process of pathocratisation (becoming a totalitarian state) is largely BIOLOGICAL. Each type of disordered individual paves the way for the next type of disorderded individual in the same way that a person might be weakened by a cold, get pleurisy and then get pneumonia. As an example maybe (or maybe not) Jack Kennedy (charming, womanising), Ronald Reagan (charming, hollow, lying, manipulative), Bill Clinton, (charming, lying, no empathy, manipulative), G.W.Bush (grandiose, lack of empathy, no remorse, charming to his supporters) and Trump make a sequence of individuals with increasingly obvious pathological traits …. I’ve listed only a few of what seem to be their fairly obvious pathological features – the PCL-R has a good long list to choose from ….

    2) A purely emotional or moral response to an individual like Trump completely misses the point and does nothing but harm. It means we’re searching for answers in the wrong place and coming up with solutions based on incorrect premises that are therefore guaranteed not to work. The response, as hard as it is, is a detached, informed and clinical response to an individual with a defined and very predictable personality disorder. That means learning all there is to know about psychopaths and malignant narcissists (the usual type at the top of the tree in a pathocracy). However, the pathological in power will meanwhile do all in their power to destroy or obfuscate such knowledge.

    3) The ideology (religion, political ideology, social movements, spiritual movements etc.) that the psychopaths (and malignant narcissists) hide behind is unimportant. The ideology is a mask (an ‘ideological mask’) which is a Trojan horse that allows pathologicals to gain power. The more deeply embedded in people’s minds the ideology is (e.g. democracy, the free market, capitalism, religion) the more that normal people are going to cling to that ideology, refusing to see that it’s become corrupted and has become a vehicle for pathological people to rise to power.

    4) The biggest difference between humans is between the pathological and the non-pathological. All other differences are minor by comparison. When we have an understanding of the pathological – particularly psychopaths – and an understanding of how pathocratisation works we can begin to counteract the influence of pathological people and prevent the endless birth of totalitarian states.

    QUOTE:
    Spellbinders are characterized by pathological egotism. Such a person is forced by some internal causes to make an early choice between two possibilities: the first is forcing other people to think and experience things in a manner similar to his own; the second is a feeling of being lonely and different, a pathological misfit in social life. Sometimes the choice is either snake-charming or suicide.

    Triumphant repression of self-critical or unpleasant concepts from the field of consciousness gradually gives rise to the phenomena of conversive thinking [selective thinking], or paralogistics [twisted logic], paramoralisms [twisted morality], and the use of reversion blockades [the Big Lie]. They stream so profusely from the mind and mouth of the spellbinder that they flood the average person’s mind. Everything becomes subordinated to the spellbinder’s over-compensatory conviction that they are exceptional, sometimes even messianic. An ideology emerges from this conviction, true in part, whose value is supposedly superior. However, if we analyze the exact functions of such an ideology in the spellbinder’s personality, we perceive that it is nothing other than a means of self-charming, useful for repressing those tormenting selfcritical associations into the subconscious. The ideology’s instrumental role in influencing other people also serves the spellbinder’s needs.

    The spellbinder believes that he will always find converts to his ideology, and most often, they are right. However, they feel shock (or even paramoral indignation) when it turns out that their influence extends to only a limited minority, while most people’s attitude to their activities remains critical, pained and disturbed.
