I dont think you are stupid, but the ( ) clearly indicates that the main wording is the outer text.
But in order that you a understand it better, i have reformated it for you.

I know that, the German wikipedia knows that and the voters have known that.
It is time, that everyone with a wikimedia.org email accepts that fact that there is no way to go forward with this image filter nonsense if you dont realise the general opposition and the still growing distrust.
You are still try to march forward, not knowing where to go. I still think ist the way to content censorship.
