“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism,’ they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened. […] I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.”—Norman Mattoon Thomas, six-time Presidential candidate
Is anyone else noticing a trend in this election year, from the media, at the behest of the Federal Government? I keep watching the news about this dead kid Trayvon “My Parents Named Me This Because They Hate Me” Martin, and countless other “stories” that the media covers relentlessly—and my big question is: why? Now, I could go on and on about how our society’s misplaced sense of priorities causes them to pounce like jackals on asinine “news” stories. All this nonsense that people (mostly liberals) hyperventilate over for a few days, and then quickly forget once reality sets back in. But I’d like to discuss more about why this is a problem.
This kind of thing ticks me off for three reasons. 1) It’s a distraction. I talked about this in my last post. Widespread media coverage over such an inane story when there’s so much else going on in this country (and internationally) that we should be concerned about is ridiculous—and, if you ask me, is clear evidence that the media is trying to distract us from the bigger picture. Like, say, this joke of a President who has made pretty much every single thing in this country worse since he took office. 2) Nobody really knows what’s actually going on here—except this dude Zimmerman. As a lawyer, this infuriates me. It’s called the Court of Public Opinion, and it’s one of the most offensive things in the world to me. Y’all probably remember the whole Casey Anthony debacle. And here we are again jumping like jackrabbits to conclusions based on no actual evidence whatsoever. 3) The “Victim Mentality” that pervades this country like a fucking cancer. We can’t wait to find a victim—or, better yet, be a victim—so that we can assert our oh-so-righteous indignation. You know, for about two weeks. Until we get bored and move onto the next indignation-of-the-week. Hey, anyone remember Constance McMillan? Yeah, I didn’t think so. But oh god, two years ago it was all anyone could talk about! But, in the moment, everyone always wants to be on the side of the so-called “victim.” It makes them feel good, and empowered, and righteous. Like they’re fighting the good fight—a fight that they don’t really actually give a damn about.
Martin is, of course, all three of these things wrapped into one. And he’s black—so, naturally, it’s an excuse to play the race card by the movers and shakers on the federal circuit. Gee, does anyone wonder if the timing of this against the Supreme Court consideration of Obamacare is coincidental? “Hey! Hey guys! Look at the shiny dead black kid I’m dangling in front of you! No no no! Don’t look at Obamacare! Look at the dead black kid! Look at him dance! Wheeee!” Or, “Nevermind your $4/gal fuel—there’s a dead black kid we have to be outraged against! BE OUTRAGED ABOUT HIM, DAMN IT! NEVERMIND THE FUEL!” Or, “Hey, forget about Iran and their genocidal plans for Israel—you’ve got a dead black kid to complain about!”
I am willing to conclude as absolute fact that this Administration thinks we’re that stupid. And I conclude that because I observe most people being that stupid. It’s a misplaced sense of priorities that infects way too much of American society. So, yeah—“Treyvon” (I still can’t believe anyone would willingly go by such a name) Martin? Terrible that he’s dead, but really—who gives a damn. People die, are murdered, and/or are subjected to horrible things every single day. Abominable things go on in your own neighborhoods, that you probably don’t have a clue about, all the time. But they’re not political currency—so you don’t know, and you don’t care. So there’s no reason to give a damn about this one. He’s dead, and that’s sad, but don’t be suckered into thinking it’s a big deal. Because it’s not.
And another thing. I’m getting really sick and tired of the rampant Anti-Americanism going on in our own country lately. I’m sick of the people who, despite their protestations otherwise, are clearly anti-Constitution and anti-Capitalism. These stupid-ass race protests, and these “99%” jackholes… I’m done with them. Someone needs to seriously just put them down. I respect their right to assemble and speak (assuming they’re doing it within the parameters of the Constitution—which we all know they’re not) but you know… with these Occutards and these race-baiting hatemongers, I regard them the same way as I do unions and Islam. Someone needs to step up, step in, and flat out break their spine. None of this wishy washy tolerance, compromise, and mediator-style approach of council meetings to try and come to a resolution on what to do. No, just put ‘em down hard and don’t ever let them get back up.
We did it with the British. We did it with the Colonial Slavers. We did it with the Nazis. We did it with the Soviets. Why we’re not doing it to the clear and overt enemies of American Constitutionalism and American Capitalism of this generation, is beyond me. All of the aformentioned are crushed for good. They’ll never rise to power again. Why? Because righteous men stood up and said, “Enough of your shit. We’re going to fuck up your universe until you stop threatening this country and its way of life for good.”
Was there collateral damage? Of course, and it’s tragic, and should be mourned and remembered. But you know what? Big picture here people. Big picture.
As much as I value life and liberty, I do not extend its protection to those that do not. I seriously do not have any problem whatsoever with hosing these punks down with nerve gas—just like I don’t have a problem with sending a wetworks team in to slit the throats of union bosses and gangsters, or turning the majority of the Middle East into one big field of glass.
For all you liberals, think of it this way: it’s for the greater good.
“Doesn’t matter what the press says. Doesn’t matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn’t matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world — ‘No, you move.’”—Captain America
Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta recently gave congressional testimony saying that the United States no longer needs the approval or consent of Congress before launching a major military offensive. In particular, Mr. Panetta - to the amazement of Sen. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republican - argued that the administration needs only “international permission” to engage in war. In other words, Mr. Panetta stressed that international approval from the United Nations or NATO trumps the sovereign authority of Congress. The administration is now contemplating whether to topple the brutal regime in Syria or wage devastating airstrikes on Iran’s nuclear facilities. Mr. Obama seems to view Congress and our system of checks and balances as a nuisance. He is engaged in a massive power grab, behaving more like a Roman emperor unfettered by the will of the people and its duly elected representatives. His worldview is clear - and ominous: America is no longer a self-governing republic, but a supranational state.
This brazen assault upon congressional constitutional prerogatives has inspired remarkably little resistance. Like ancient Rome, republican institutions are slowly being drained of authority, power flowing to an arrogant, ever-growing leviathan. One congressman, however, finally has drawn a line in the sand. Rep. Walter B. Jones, North Carolina Republican, has issued a resolution stating that should Mr. Obama - or any other president - use offensive military force without prior and clear authorization by Congress, this would constitute an impeachable offense.
“The issue of presidents taking this country to war without congressional approval is one that I have long been concerned about,” Mr. Jones said. “Just last week, President Obama’s Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta told the United States Senate that he only needed to seek ‘international’ approval prior to initiating yet another war, this time in Syria. Congress would merely need to be ‘informed.’ This action would clearly be a violation of Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution.”
He added: “Enough is enough. It is time this country upholds the Constitution and the principles upon which this country was founded.”
She’s a whore, and it’s a distraction. Keep your eye on the ball people. Just a little reminder:
Fuel is pushing $4/gal, expected to reach around $6/gal this summer—no realistic plan from our idiot President.
Iran is priming to bomb Israel off the face of the earth—President Downgrade doesn’t care, and neither does the UN.
Way too many people are dependent on the federal government—Barack Idiot and every other liberal Democrat seems to want this.
Unemployment is still ridiculously high—no realistic plan from our idiot President.
Half of the population isn’t paying taxes—President Downgrade’s answer is “MOAR SPENDING PLZ.”
Illegal immigration (and its associated woes) is still a very serious problem—Eric Holder and Barack Idiot are making it worse.
Foreclosures and bankruptcies are still rising—President Downgrade wants to continue the insane practice of sub-prime lending, and hamstring the banks even more.
Class and racial warfare is on the rise—Barack Idiot and every single Democrat we see are stoking the flames.
Green Energy projects? Failure. All ending in bankruptcy, not creating any jobs.
Federal budget? Failure. Laughed out of Congress. Even by the Democrats.
Government Motors? Failure. Still a waste of money. PS: Congrats, we all now own a slice of Peugeot. Peugeot.
1st Amendment is being whittled away. 2nd Amendment is being whittled away. 4th Amendment is being whittled away. 9th and 10th Amendments are all but ignored. President Downgrade supports all of this.
Not one single policy of this Administration has panned out successfully, or in a way that has at all benefited America and Americans. He has killed jobs; he has skyrocketed our debt; he has crippled our economy; he has paved the road for criminals to abuse what this country has to offer; he has thrown our greatest allies under the bus; he’s saddled this country with an asinine health care plan (against our will!) that will break our spine; and he’s stuck us and our children with the bill for all of it.
And the entire country is whining about Sandra fucking Fluke being called the slut she is, and is proud to be.
Boy oh boy, I’m against hitting chicks, but I’ve never wanted to punch a broad so hard in my life. I mean, are these people retards or something? I am, of course, referring to the self-appointed spokesmen of the 99%.
Watch this. And then tell me if your IQ doesn’t drop a few points after listening to these morons.
We can start to look to new ways to doing and being beyond and against capitalism.
LIKE WHAT MARINA? LIKE WHAT? NAME ME ONE SINGLE IDEOLOGICAL METHOD BESIDES CAPITALISM THAT HASN’T BEEN TESTED, AND UTTERLY FAILED. ONE. NAME ONE.
Socialism? FAILED. It doesn’t work. People won’t work for someone else’s benefit at their own expense.
Communism? FAILED. Everyone starved/froze to death—except those in power.
Despotism? FAILED. Individual liberty traded for the insane ambitions of a single nutjob.
Theocracy? FAILED. Suddenly, those in power can (and will) justify everything in the name of their god.
Fascism? FAILED. The rest of the world will not put up with genocide and attempts at world domination.
Totalitarian? FAILED. Boy, you want to start talking about class warfare. “Warfare” taken literally, I might add.
Libertarianism? FAILED. Unchecked limits ultimately result in liberty encroachments.
Anarchism? FAILED. That’s a State of Nature, people. And we’re not animals.
So, what else is there, Marina, you stupid-ass numbskull? Name one other social/economic/political system that could replace the benefits of capitalism. Oh, “you’re not going to work for our value system?” Well then what fucking value system do you plan on working for?
Oh, and Lawrence, you SEIU prick—let me tell you a little thing about “for or against.” Everyone is either for or against everything.Reality dictates this, and logic does not allow us to escape it. It’s called the Law of Identity, and its corollary, The Principle of Non-Contradiction. Contrary to idiots’popular belief, there is no such thing as “gray area” in ideological matters. There isn’t. At the end of the day, a proposition is either true or it is not true. And we either accept that, or we don’t. There’s no in-between to be had. Trying to find one always ends up in contradiction, then hypocrisy.
Furthermore, that gray area you’re trying to play in? That “intersection between horizontal and vertical?” That “compromise,” if you will? Hey Lawrence, how much cyanide are you willing to let me pour in your mass produced bottled water there? 1 drop? 3 drops? 10 drops? Half the bottle? The whole bottle? Are you “for, or against” a little poison in your drinking water? How much poison will you tolerate in your water?
Unless you’re an idiot—and you are—the answer is always none. This, of course, being a metaphor for good/evil, right/wrong, etc etc. No, Lawrence, we don’t compromise on ideology. Ever. If something is right, we do it. If something is wrong, we don’t do it. Morality 101. Apparently a class you SEIU sons of bitches never took.
AND DON’T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THIS MENTALITY:
That our enemies, the rich and powerful, are terrified of us is absolutely true. And we need to grab that, and think about the next three or four months, as a moment where we take our hope; their fear; a big vision; and concrete work in a way that gives us a huge lift.
There’s a word for that, pal. It’s called terrorism. That’s what you’re advocating here. Using fear and threats against your enemy to force them into submission in order to replace their way of life for yours. What you just said, you fucking jackal, could have very easily been word-for-word what’s said at the average al qaeda meeting.
Oh, and for your asinine rant about BOA “deciding everyone’s fate.” God, give me a break. You took out a loan. You secured it with that you purchased with the loan. The word is “collateral.” If you can’t repay the loan, they have rights to that collateral, in order to get back the money they gave you. Why is that so abhorrent to you? Do you not get the concepts of “security” and “collateral” and "loan?" You know, “loan”—where you borrow money, but EVENTUALLY YOU HAVE TO PAY IT BACK!?! I mean, what don’t you get about that?
This system is incredibly violent, and no amount of broken windows will make up for the misery and loss of human potential these systems yield.
The misery and loss, huh? Exactly what did they lose? Their homes? The homes they bought on borrowed money? Their jobs? The jobs that have been frustrated—if not made impossible—by union gangsters, federal regulation, and insane taxes? And what misery? That “misery” of getting a free handout in the form of education, health care, welfare, housing assistance, loan modification, food stamps, and god knows what else that half of the population isn’t even paying for anymore?
Oh, but “you don’t want to get into the ethics of it.” Right Yotam? Right? You fucking disingenuous Abercrombie-wearing poser.
Ahh yes, and let’s get the hippie insight—with her “beehive perspective” that’s so “effective.”
Uh huh, and how is that effective again? I’m sorry, but do any of you 99% losers have jobs? Are any of you paying taxes? What exactly are you contributing at all?To anything?
Oh right… it’s not your issue—it’s everyone else’s. You have to “transform them.” By any means necessary, right 99%?
You know what? Right now, you’re nothing. You’re a bunch of homeless bums living in tents and causing biohazards. The United States of America can and will overcome you. God forbid you actually try to “transform us.” Because guess what, when you try to force that subjugating oppressive ideology of yours on us, you know what’s going to happen? You’re going to meet the business end of our 2nd Amendment Right. I guaran-goddamn-tee you.
This is sick. This whole video is sick. These people are sick. Their mentality and their ideology is sick. And stupid. So so so stupid. That they don’t understand this, and that so many people are going along with them… good god people, what the hell is going on here?
These morons want to abolish capitalism. I get it. That’s their goal.
WHY IS THAT YOUR GOAL? ARE YOU STUPID? WHY IS THAT YOUR GOAL? ANSWER ME THAT ONE QUESTION. WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO ABOLISH CAPITALISM, THAT HAS CREATED A WORLD FOR YOU TO HAVE EVERY SINGLE THING YOU HAVE, IN ORDER TO REPLACE IT WITH—WHAT EXACTLY? STATE IT. DEFINE IT.
You fucking “99%” punks can’t even do that, can you?
The 99% considers themselves a “movement,” people. You know what they really are?
I like how pro-abortion people always rationalize the choice to kill a baby by it's projected socio-economic group or environment. They make it sound like it's a selfless act of charity to kill your own baby. All my mom's "friends" told her to get an abortion when she was pregnant with me, I'm very glad she didn't listen. My brother went through bankruptcy a few years ago, I should have done him a favor and shot him in the head. Charitable killing, that is a very stupid argument.
