Do We Have This One??

Oh, great, here comes the idiot who always screws up everything. If he screws up, I'm seriously going off at him. Now the world will be a happier place without him!

This is the trope where people have the tendency to believe that people with low intelligence are evil and wants them to be punished for causing a lot of pain and turmoil in the world. This were to be true if they are possibly capable of crossing the Moral Event Horizon. For some one who's always annoyed with stupid people, they're taking it a bit too far.

    I prefer rogues to imbeciles, because rogues sometimes rest.

    Do you have examples? The first line of the description makes it sound like this is just about getting mad at someone for being stupid, not conflating stupid with evil.

    I am pretty sure this is already covered by Hanlons Razor, which is worded negatively ("don't attribute stupid actions to malice") but is basically this if negated ("they are stupid but appear evil").
