In Which I Promise Not Become Obsessed

January 27th, 2009 3 comments

I guess this could also be called “In Which I’m A Total Dick”, but, really Eric – think before you post.

Why are we NOT violating the rights of them murderous towelheads at Gitmo?  Simple!

The Geneva COnvention only applies to nations. Al Queda is not a nation. They are not entitled to any protection that Geneva covers.

So, by that logic, you’re saying that that since “Jews” aren’t a nation then their rights weren’t violated during the holocaust.

Or am I missing something?

More concretely, here’s another example of what I’m going to call the Hannity Syndrome in which you claim to be neutral and then drop all pretense of neutrality.  For the sake of coaxing the point out, I’m going to switch the order of the paragraphs

I have vowed for the most part to sit back and let him [Obama] govern. I have no interest in reflexively opposing him. He has to make decisions that I believe are so fundamentally wrong on an issue so deep inside my heart for me to intervene.

The pain of the Twin Towers has been compounded by a pair of decisions that will hopefully never come to be known as the “Twin Blunders.”

Dig the almost perfect passive aggression of that last sentence.  “That will hopefully never be known…”  HA!  Dude – don’t be so fucking coy!  Just come right out and say, “hey, here’s a snappy soundbite for OneNewsNow or, if I’m lucky, Fox!”

(The blunders that will hopefully never be known as the “twin blunders”, btw, are 1) closing the farce called Gitmo and 2) actually NOT torturing people when we say we won’t.  *sigh*)

Finally – God knows that I fuck up all the time but

Sometime between January 20th and January 25th of 2008, a new President made grave strategic mistakes.

That’s some serious freaky wormhole time travel there!

In Which I Want To Give Eric A Heads Up

January 27th, 2009 No comments

Well, Eric gave me quite the drubbing in the comment section because of my foul fucking mouth and horrible manners in writing a post for my own website. Now, we can agree to disagree over whether “goosestepping” means calling someone a Nazi or whether it means marching in lockstep.  Personally, I meant it in the latter sense, but I do understand that offense can be taken.  Plenty of people get upset that “drinking the Kool Aid” became divorced from the horrific massacre in Jonestown and now is used as a punchline.

Still, it’s a little disingenuous to hear him say –

Lastly, my holocaust surviving father would take offense at your referring to any American politican as a “goose-stepper,” “Nazi,” or “Brownshirt.”

Which is pretty funny since hardcore conservatives and christians spent the last, desparate moments of the 2008 campaign calling Obama “Adolph Hitler” who was, if memory serves…um…a Nazi.

I’m far too shallow to really look in depth, but the cursory search for “nazi” on Eric’s website didn’t show any posts warning his conservative breathern to cut the shit – oops, rather, to knock it off with the insulting references to Hitler.  Nor, I’m assuming (and, please, prove me wrong) are there any posts decrying the use of “the American Holocaust” when refering to abortion in America.

And why would there be?  Very few ideaolouges one either side of the fence would risk pissing off – goddamn it, did it again – annoying their breathern by speaking up for their core beliefs.  That kind of behavior bruises the gin, after all.  Why?  Because dissent inside your own party is not patriotic.

Two items –

1) A new friend stopped by the blog a short time ago and sent me an email saying, “I’m not quite sure that we’re on the same side of everything”.  And while that might be true, I still consider myself to be pretty fucking goddamn goshdarn liberal.  Not on everything, though, it’s true.  I’m not big into the group think and run into problems challenging my fellow liberals on some issues.  Nobody on the far left or far right likes a moderate.  We’re seeing Obama pay the price for his independence right now.  I haven’t read Eric’s stuff terribly deeply but it strikes me as faux-moderate as when Hannity says things like “Obama has no hope of succeeding but I’m going to give him 72 hours to prove me wrong because I’m a fair guy”.

2) I hope that soon you’ll be able to bookmark and copy audio from your mp3 player onto your computer.  Had this been the case, I’d have the audio from Focus On The Family that makes my case better than I can.  Dobson and company nattered on about how horrible the left was that, as Eric pointed out, they called republicans that had never killed any Jews, Nazis.  “This,” they said, “just added to the proof of what horrible people liberals were and how they’d do anything to twist the truth so that it lined up with their non-christian views.”

But it gets better.

About five minutes later on the same show (which was a typical christcon lie-a-thon) one of the guests started a new thread about how “the culture of death” didn’t really care who they killed.  They’d kill grandmothers simply because their life support systems cost tax payers hundreds of millions of dollars in Medicare payments.  Yes.  They’d kill the old people (waaaaait for it) JUST LIKE THE NAZIS DID.

HAHAHA!

Again – I wish I had the audio for that program.  Within the space of five minutes they whined about being called Nazis and then called other people Nazis.

So, Eric, I hope I didn’t trample on your right to dissent.  And please write a post about how Dr. Scott Lively somehow feels that allow gays in the military will turn the US Military into…well, I’m not really sure what the point is but it’s got to do with faggots and Hitler.

In Which All Wingnuts Are In Fourth Grade

Nah, nah, nah, boo-boo
Stick your head in doo-doo
– Typical fourth grader

Nah, nah, nah, boo-boo
Stick your head in feces
– Typical wingnut

Welcome, wingnuts, to the Other Side Of The Mirror.  This is the sane side of the mirror – the side where we don’t invade countries because our penises are smaller than our daddy’s. This is the side where “thoughtfulness” and “intelligence” are virtues and not weaknesses.  This is the side where, while you don’t have to lay down and show your belly, you accept defeat with a little more grace and not sabre rattle when you know the Senate vote’s gonna wind up 94-6.

Yes, this is the side where Obama is president and, sorry, you’ll have to deal with that.

Let’s make something clear – we (the lie-beral defeato-crat, islamofascist lovers) didn’t hate bush right out of the gate.  Getting us to hate him was the only thing he really worked hard at.  9/11?  Did we hate him after 9/11?  Answer – no.  We didn’t even blame him for unti until that silly piece of paper surfaced with something about “bin Laden determined to attack inside the US blah blah blah”.  I didn’t hate him for going into Afghanistan and kicking the ass of the perpetrators of 9/11…even though they 90% Saudi citizens.  I didn’t really hate him that much for allowing AIDS patients in some countries to die because those countries allowed abortion.

No – I hated him because he invaded a country that, even to my unpracticed eye, had NOTHING TO FUCKING DO WITH 9/11.  I hated him because, after swearing up and down that killing bin Laden was Job #1, HE THREW UP HIS HANDS AND SAID FUCK IT.  I hated his propaganda machine made disagreement with his policies REASON TO BE FUCKING SPIED ON.

Now, it’s not like I expect you folks to act like adults since you’ll always be bullies no matter which party is in power.  You’re fouth graders with hardons for war movies but not for personally going to war.  So Tygrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Express (or how many “wicked kewl” r’s you use), if your going to masturbate, do it in private, ok?

From what I have learned over the last few days, it is very important that “we all come together.”

Yet from what I remember during the previous 8 years, the main phrase was that “dissent is patriotic.”

It is amazing how the rules of civility are completely altered when a democrat wins the White House. Perhaps that is what Barack Obama meant by “change.”

We have tough problems to face, so we have to rally around our new leader and support him. Funny, in 2000 the mantra was, “Let’s destroy this guy because we feel like it.”

Now that those that know only insatiable bloodlust are being forced to smile and be pleasant, they expect conservatives to just let vicious bygones be vicious bygones.

It doesn’t work that way.

I have nothing against Barack Obama personally. He seems to be a likable fellow that is right about some things and wrong about many more.

His presidency is less than a week old and you and your conservative buddies have done nothing but act like dicks.  And limp ones, at that.  So spare me your cheap irony that we’re telling you to shut up and silencing your dissent.  We’re not.  We’re not telling homeland security to spy on you just because you have an R next to your name or because you voted for Alan Keyes or some other fanatic.

“I don’t have anything against him personally…”  Sweet fucking jesus – do you really expect anyone to believe that?  That particular code was busted decades ago.  “Oh, he’s a nice enough guy, given that he rapes puppies and sells crack to kids.”

Stop.

Bang your little to xylophones and tin drums.  Do your little goosesteps around the Washington Monument.  Have all the dissent you want.  No one is calling you unpatriotic because you have different ideas.  No one is using that Patriot Act to track you down in your home.  No one is trying to fire you because you’re a closet gay who’s blowing Grover Norquist.

We. Don’t. Care.

No matter how many times you try to force people into believing that we will ship conservatives off to concentration/re-education camps it just won’t be true.  Most people know that.  That’s why they voted democratic instead of republican.

They got tired of feeling afraid of their government.

So, cry all you want – it’ll set a good example for your children: even without facts you must hate the opposition.

You’re disgusting.

BUT you have the right to be disgusting.
