The hubris of the stupid: As Rambo to the success?

After we got to Best of HR - Berufebilder.de® already in detail about the Success factor stupidity have discussed, reports ZEIT ONLINE yesterday about a US Congressman, who threatened a reporter in front of the camera. The video is now on the net. Stupid? In any case, self-assessment!

A deputy wants to cut a journalist into pieces

How ZEIT ONLINE reported and the video shows, the Republican US MP Michal Grimm from New York initially refused to answer questions from journalist Michael Scotto from NY1, but then came back and threatened the reporter with the following words, apparently in the Video unfortunately cannot be clearly understood:
"Let me be very clear: if you do this again, I'll throw you off that damn balcony. I want you to do it again." You are not man enough. I'll beat you to pieces like a little boy. "

The hubris of the stupid ones?

When I read that and saw, I automatically thought: how stupid is the man? And how much hubris and missing impulse control belongs to such a threat still speak in front of the camera?

We got up Best of HR – Berufebilder.de® Recently, Resiliency Factor Impact Control and Zinédine Zidane, who at the time cost his team victory with a thoughtless action.

If no punishment, then no learning effect

In the case of Zidane, however, the punishment for the behavior immediately followed, so that perhaps a learning effect could adjust itself.

In the case of Michael Grimm, however, there have been no further reactions so far - there have been some press reports, some called the action “unacceptable”.

Dreist is horny

This behavior is obviously cool for Grimm, who is apparently not a blameless sheet either. At Wikipedia you can read that he took part in the first Iraq war as a marine. One can assume that with this Rambo behavior he even thinks himself particularly masculine. And maybe that's why it's even successful.

This is also supported by the fact that he refuses to apologize. At least he is loud ZEIT ONLINE to have been extremely angry, but trying to downplay the matter as a minor offense. Motto: Dreist is cool!

I'm lost for words…
