The Ten Most Hated People in America

Last week, the results of a national poll were released in which Americans were asked to name the ten of their fellow citizens whom they most hated, and the results were really quite pathetic. Here they are in all of their contemptible glory:

1. Casey Anthony
2. Spencer Pratt
3. Nadia “Octomom” Suleman
4. O.J. Simpson
5. Jon Gosselin
6. Levi Johnson
7. Jesse James (the celebritard, not the historical outlaw)
8. Paris Hilton
9. Heidi Fleiss
10. Howard Stern

Boy is my finger not at all on the pulse of America. It strikes me when looking at this list that rather than feeling any hatred towards the individuals named, my reaction is that I just don’t give a flying fuck about any one of them. It’s incredible that of the ten people upon whom Americans choose to direct their greatest ire, only two have actually been involved in committing any form of serious crime. The others are just total attention whores, who clearly have been quite successful in getting those who obviously have nothing else better to do to give them EXACTLY what it is they crave.

Where the hell are the names of the reprehensible cretins who actually ARE destroying America? For example, how about our two most recent Presidents, each of whom is responsible for the deaths of countless thousands of innocent civilians overseas as well as many American soldiers in the mindless pursuit of the big business war, and empire agenda? Where are the names of Wall Street titans like Lloyd Blankfein, whose insatiable greed crashed the economy and caused many millions of Americans to lose their jobs? Where are the names of the corporate CEOs who have been transferring American jobs overseas for more than 30 years in pursuit of ever larger profits? Where are the names of the forever preening and posturing Congressmen and women who do nothing but pass legislation enabling the transfer of the nation’s wealth from the working and middle classes to the wealthy? Where are the names of the central bankers who are devaluing our currency and causing food and energy prices to explode just to save their Wall Street buddies?

What this pitiable list shows is just how effective the American Hologram has been in distracting the masses from noticing who is really destroying their livelihoods and utterly wrecking that which so many of those same masses proclaim is “the Greatest Country in the World.” At this point, I don’t know what it’s going to take to wake people up to the fact that it is not Howard Stern, or Octomom or Paris Hilton whom they should be angry at.

Instead, it’s the same sons-of-a-bitches whom they go to the polls to vote for along with the elite scumbags who underwrite the campaigns. And while recent polls have also shown historic disapproval of Congress, that likely won't stop over 90% of the incumbents from being reelected next time around, just like they always are.

It’s no wonder Americans aren’t taking their anger to the streets like people are in so much of the rest of the world. Even if they did, they’d only be howling for the blood of conveniently created scapegoats rather than the real culprits who are screwing them every day of their lives. Unless the day comes that the results of a poll like this includes names like Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Lloyd Blankfein, Jamie Dimon, Ben Bernanke, Larry Summers, Harry Reid and John Boehner, there is NO chance that any form of positive change will come to America before its too late.


  1. Ok, you set me off this morning. I had to do my own post, which is not quite as reasoned as yours :-)

  2. Kind of reminds me of Ancient Rome, bread and circus. This is like a roman circus to keep the plebs distracted. I have no doubt a similar vote in any western european country would produce an equally banal list of nobodies as hate figures.

    Anyway I was away on holidays and had a quite a backlog of your posts to read when I got back.

  3. If Lloyd Blankfiend was on the list of most hated people, the editors would remove him. Same goes for the others.

    For all we know, your list might have been more accurate. But highlighting that would draw more attention to the economic collapse, and that's not acceptable.

    Getting an accurate list will be like getting the MSM to recognize that Ron Paul exists.

  4. LOL
    what a joke.
    other than a couple of those people, I don't know who the hell they are!
    of course, I haven't watched tv in years so that probably accounts for it.
    You're right though Bill, where are the names of the people that have destroyed the world?
    Makes a person feel sad actually.

  5. This is a great post. Each blogger should take the time to create their own 'real' list. It's also a great way to point out to the average boob who's really to blame for our collective rage. I say, continue with this thread, let's go one by one - until people get the point...

  6. Thanks for the great comments, guys. I rarely get really steamed about this stuff anymore, but this one managed to get under my collar.

    Glad you feel the same way! :)

  7. gee bill, dont sugar coat it, tell us how you really feel :D

  8. @Anduin - that's what I do best! :D

  9. you forgot Greenspan, for deregulating banking and leaving the interest rates ridiculously low, setting the stage for the whole collapse...

  10. You could set the cut off at the top 1000 people with a caveat that they must be actively engaged in and leading the core of their nefarious practices and you'd still only scratch the surface of people to hate.

    Suffice it to say that there are still more than the minimum amount of wolves in the system to keep the sheep perpetually frozen in fear and denial.

  11. Ben Bernanke of the Federal Reserve Bank (which is not federal)--who committed the largest theft in world history in the tens of trillions of dollars--legal, of course--of U.S. taxpayer money is number one.
