Right Wing Rhetoric is Dangerous
Republicans are angry. Bitter. Hostile. Resentful.
Desperate. Hungry for power.
And ratcheting up the hate-speak to such irresponsible
and reprehensible levels that
one day soon they may have blood on their hands
if they don't stop.
We can blame the Tea Party and its de facto leaders--Sarah
Palin, Glenn Beck, Newt Gingrich,
Michelle Bachmann, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh
and Rep. Eric Cantor to name a few--for riling up
Republicans with relentless attacks on President
Obama and Democrats using code language and
euphemisms like "take our country back,""reload,"
and "gangster government." We've witnessed racial
and sexual slurs, threats, intimidation, violence,
Democrats hanging in effigy...all in an attempt to
delegitimize Obama's presidency through accusations
of radicalism and socialism. As Cantor
disingenuously claims, Obama wants "to remake
America in the image of Europe."
Palin opens every speech by shouting to her audience,
"Do you love your Freedom?," as if those
very freedoms are truly at risk of being taken
away. She force-feeds her misguided groupies with
propaganda that Obama's "un-American" policies
make America "less free." One Teabagger
over last weekend threatened: "To the elites....we're
not going to be worried so much about
shooting the folks who come to shoot us. We will
skip several levels and go straight for their throats."
The rhetoric has intensified to the point where
a new poll shows that 74% of Republicans fear that
their rights and freedoms are under imminent
threat, vs 52% in 1996, after the Oklahoma City bombing of 1995.
The problem is the people spewing the most hate
are making the most money.
Like greedy oil men, even after they reach multi-millionaire
status, they want even more.
"Why, I can't be happy with $20M when I know
Rush has $400M."
so we get assholes like Glenn Beck, who's a parody of Rush like Colbert
but the nutty, racist bastards on the Right take him seriously.
Did you see that snippet recently that, according to James Carville,
a high percentage
of Glenn Beck followers think the Clintons are going to have the crying
I made a spooky prediction years ago, maybe around 2005
that we were currently living in the "good times."
I hate to say it but it turns out I was right.
Bush was raping Lady Liberty daily, he was starting wars like I open
a bottle of tequila,
Cheney was shredding the Constitution while allowing Exxon to rape
the rest of us, and on and on.
Who knew those would be the "good old days?"
These days if you still have your home, you feel like a winner.
If you still have a job, you feel like a rock star and if you have
anything left in savings, you feel like a goddamn lottery winner.
To make things worse (Why do things always get worse?) we seem
headed towards civil war.
The Right-wing monkeys are ready to shed blood - but they can't say
why they're angry.
We know why they're angry - "nigger
in the White House."
What if things get so bad that Obama has to announce he won't run
for a second term?
What if things get so bad that our choices are President Palin or
I'm not kidding - things could get so bad that 2010 looked like a picnic.
What will it take for our pusillanimous Democrats to list some facts?
The Dow is up 70%
under Obama - anyone talking about that besides me?
Home prices have stabilized,
jobs are coming back - slowly.
But the cable bastards and the nightly news can make more money
with stories of Teabagger riots than they can with "things
are getting better."
The greed thing is what's killing us, too.
If NBC can make $600M
with honest journalism or $601M
by provoking a bloody civil war,
the sons of bitches want that extra million, goddammit, and they don't
care who fucking dies.
...and you say owning a gun is a bad idea?
we continue down this path towards civl war,
do you really want to bring a baseball bat to a gunfight?
I can't hold off the stupid half of America by myself.
