In defense of some of the people in this video, many appear to be tourists from out of state. That’s what happens when you do “man on the street” interviews at a tourist attraction like the Tennesseee Aquarium, and the Chattanooga newspaper staff should have known better than to ask a “who’s the governor of Tennessee” question at a place with a high concentration of tourists. They should have taken this bit to Kroger.
But clearly not all of them are, especially the idiots who think Phil Bredesen is still governor. And to those people I say: if you can’t fucking pay attention, then you deserve all the wingnuttery you get.
You know who benefits from ignorance, complacency and disengagement? The status quo. The plutocracy. The powerful. The people in charge.
