The Long, Slow, Pistol-nacht of the Right

with great thanks to Driftglass:


'File under: "Guns don't kill people, Conservatives kill people."

Recent American history has seen enough violent, rage-drunk years punctuated with enough bombings and assassinations to prove to anyone who has not had their brains eaten out by Hate Radio is that there is virtually zero moral distinction between the radical mullahs who fill a small number of brown people on the other side of the world with ignorant, aggrieved fury and weaponized holy fire, and then point them at political targets...

...and our very own Conservative Christopathic axis of evil that fill a small number of white Americans with ignorant, aggrieved fury and weaponized holy fire, and then point them at political targets.

Except, of course, our American Taliban don't have to subsist by skulking in caves and smuggling out bad mix tapes.

Because thanks to scum like Rupert Murdoch, many of our American Taliban are given access to the best broadcast technology in the history of the world, and collect multi-million dollar paychecks for puking their hate straight into our living rooms in hi-def.

The Right really does hate us for our freedoms, and as long as the status quo remains unchanged, every one of us on the Left is walking around with a bull's-eye pinned to our back.'

No comments:

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
