Ed Berliner is tired of hearing about anger, but he is apparently very angry at everyone.
The conservative commentator went on a rant posted to YouTube saying that Americans are stupid because they continue to participate in a political system that is broken.
Ed Berliner, a host for conservative news site Newsmax, showed clips of Republican candidates Donald Trump and Carly Fiorina, and Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders, (I-VT) talking about frustration of American voters who are tired of the status quo and never see change, no matter who they vote into office.
“Yes America’s angry, but let’s also face some facts. A good part of America is stupid,” Berliner said. “We’re a nation where a majority of people walk into a ballot booth and pull levers, punch out tiny tabs, or marking boxes, everything Republican or Democrat without a second thought.”
He also criticized Kentucky anti-gay county clerk Kim Davis for using religion to “fail to follow the law of the land.”
“Look in the mirror, America. See the face of those who allow clown car drivers and slick hucksters to decide your fate and that of this nation. Maybe then you’ll take some personal responsibility to do your homework instead of allowing your brain to curdle into pathetic political mush.
We continue to blindly follow the next best shiny thing in politics. The polished deceit and street corner con jobs from former government officials, spouses of past presidents and people who had their own reality shows and promise things that no logical thinking cogent minded individual could ever understand will be carried out,” he said, taking an apparent swipe at Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Trump.
The real anger, he said, should be “slapped back into the puss of those who wouldn’t know Iran from Iraq or a Kurd from a Qud.”

Chief Justice Roberts admonishes lawyers at Senate impeachment trial
Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court John Roberts made his first major intervention in President Donald Trump's impeachment trial shortly before 1 a.m. Wednesday morning.
After House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) finished his closing arguments on why former National Security Advisor John Bolton should testify, the White House team went on the attack. Yelling and demanding apologies, the president's team was more animated than they'd been all night. Roberts then admonished the House and White House on their language.
Claiming the Senate is the "world's greatest deliberative body" -- despite what he had witnessed during 12 hours of the impeachment trial -- Roberts complained about language that was "not conducive to civil discourse."
White House lawyers begin yelling at Democrats during late-night impeachment trial — after Trump starts tweeting
President Donald Trump woke up and began tweeting around midnight EST during the Senate impeachment trial over the amendments over the rules. That's when a noticeable thing changed on the Senate floor: Trump's team started yelling.
Nearing 1 a.m. EST Tuesday morning while the president was tweeting about impeachment, his team began attacking Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) personally. They called him a liar and accused him of attacking the president and demanded an apology. After nearly 12 hours this was the first time the White House got even remotely animated after a dull defense of the president.
Here is the self-inflicted blunder Mitch McConnell made that destroyed his entire case: ex-DOJ official
The former chief of the criminal fraud section at the Department of Justice broke down a mistake made by Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) late on Tuesday evening.
McConnell urged something known as "vote stacking" in which there would be a vote-a-rama sequence of vote after vote -- without any debate on the amendments.
Andrew Weissmann, who played a management role in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, explained how McConnell undermined his own argument.
"I think Mitch McConnell may have made a bit of a miscalculation there because what he is really saying -- 'Can you stack these?' -- is it doesn't matter what you say, because we're going to vote against it," he explained.
