Unfortunately for your argument, most people are not morons. They are
fully capable of learning, and few, if any, will really struggle with this
problem for very long.

I don't think anyone is suggesting Python as a first language because it
is a perfect language - you can find a problem with any choice. But given
the set of languages to choose from, Python's positives outweigh its
negatives as a good choice for beginners.
