Sam finds the Stranger eating at the hotel and tries to persuade him to defend the town from Carlin brothers, are to be released from prison that day. These three have sworn to burn the town to the ground.. Actually town saw The Stranger's shooting skills.

Sam: Why not?

The Stranger: 'Cause I'm not a gunfighter.

Sam: Oh, now, don't get fact mixed up with stupid. You...

I know phrase don't get means don't understand, So Sam didn't understand fact which mixed with stupid. Is this how phrase meant actually?
