You attacks anyone who makes even the smallest mistake when it comes to grammar and tells them they are worthless and have no right to speak.

Provide an example of anybody here saying anybody else is worthless based on a grammatical error.

She didn't make a mistake. The fact you think she did only further illustrates your poor grasp of grammar. Which is why it's not terribly advisable for you to try and score a point by misidentifying grammatical mistakes.

Honestly, why do people attempt to engage him in rational discussion? I'll go out on a limb (not really) and say that virtually everyone will agree with your arguments against him, so you're preaching to the choir. Also, your arguments will do absolutely nothing to change his mind. What's the point?

Also yeah many people believe that knowledge = intelligence.  They are wrong.  
Be that as it may....
intelligence, knowledge, wisdom  and reason form the foundation of most thought and are interrelated in many ways but they are separate entities and the presence of one does not necessitate the presence of the other, though sometimes one is found through one or more of the other
I would add formal education to this list as well.  There is an odd assumption that, if someone does not have a formal higher education, then they will necessarily be ignorant on most subjects.  I went to college and learned a lot about computers, and nothing about history.  Today, by educating myself, I think I know more about history than I ever did about computers.  But I run into people who turn up their noses about self-education.  What you know is just as valid if you learned it in your living room as if you learned it in a college classroom.
I agree. And as for "tossing around big words and sounding like a moron" alright then, thats your view, so take what you will out of what I say, but do not condemn others or myself because we choose otherwise. If I so choose I can have a master's level command of the English language and its constituent rules of grammar, but here, in a informal forum I have abstained for I have not in the past found it necessary to speak formally, with the full command of my vocabulary  and ability because this is not how I speak with those I am comfortable with, meaning those I deem to be friends at best and friendly acquaintances at worst. So as to prove myself otherwise now, I will afford you  a list of the achievements my writing ability has  awarded me: a Presidential Grant to put towards the school of my choice, it helped me obtain my black-belt as there was a portion of the process in which, to be internationally recognized as a black belt, I had to submit an essay to several grandmasters to be reviewed, and it allowed me to score a 100 % on the reading and writing portion of my SAT's as well as a score of 5 on my English AP's. This is what has come out of my ability to be comprehended and understood. It did not occur to me in first posting on this forum that there were those that would judge the capacity of my mind to think and reason on the structure and forms of my words, ignoring the structure and forms of the ideas behind them. So go ahead and insult me then for the choice I have made to be informal, for I believe such a formality sounds pompous and arrogant and conveys disrespect and condescension to the reader when interpreted at face value. I do so  out of respect, not a lack thereof.  I take comfort in the fact that I know better, and so to do those that would look deeper into what I say.

By the way, this only emphasizes the point I was making -- you can use all the big words you want and make all the claims in the world to back up your intelligence. The fact of the matter is that your posts still don't make sense because your sentence structure, spelling, capitalization, punctuation and grammar blow.
