We See You

To save themselves and their co-conspirators and fellow travelers from being run out of this country on a rail, the goons and hacks and greasy little Luntzes who were present at the creation of the American Fascist Party (from the NYT, December 12, 1994) --
"Rush [Limbaugh] is as responsible for what happened here as much as anyone," said Vin Weber, a former Representative from Minnesota, now of Empower America. Citing a poll taken after the election by Frank Luntz, a Republican pollster, Mr. Weber said that people who listened to 10 hours or more a week of talk radio voted Republican by a 3-to-1 margin. "Those are the people who elected the new Congress," he said.
-- and have greased it's filthy skids with our blood and treasure every day since, are now out in force trying once again to to use their privileged access to the the levers of political and media power to absolve themselves of the catastrophes which they created and from which they have profited so handsomely.

And this is why they hate us.

They hate us because we are the ones who know their terrible secret and keep blabbing it out loud to anyone who will listen.

Because we are the ones who know what it really means to invoke the "Both Sides Do It" lie.  To profit hugely from selling this lie over and over and over again.

Because we are the ones who know what dreadful, soul-killing price in denial and delusion that lie demands.

Because we are the ones who know the true names of the silky, toxic demons they conjure with that lie, and the terrible power they cede to them every time they tell it.

Because we are the ones who tell the world the truth -- that when the invoke the Both Sides lie, they are begging those demons to please, please, please bury them alive and hide the truth at all costs away because they cannot bear to face it.

They hate us and fear us because in order to for the Both Sides lie to once and for all wipe their depravity from human memory and absolve the goons and hacks and greasy little Luntzes of all the evil they have done, they need to to be buried alive too.*

They hate and fear us because we are doing what journalists should have been doing all along -- seeing the goons and hacks and greasy little Luntzes who delivered our country into the hands of monsters for who and what they really are, and speaking that truth out loud. 

They need us to shut the the fuck up.

And they hate and fear us because we will not shut the fuck up.

Behold, a Tip Jar!

*Thanks for the reminder that of course Bill Kristol is all over this scam like a buzzard on road-kill.

Oh yeah, right, because Democratic voters are just so extreme and unreasonable and keep demanding all of this extreme and unreasonable stuff such as... uh, hmmm, uh..., well...

It's like when I was visiting my Alabamastan rellies this summer and one cousin started a Rush-fueled (gloats about listening to Limpdick every. single. day. because she doesn't work; don't know what kind of welfare she's on, but probably ok as long as no darkies get the same thing) rant about how divisive Obama was. When I quietly and calmly asked for some examples of Obama's divisiveness I basically got: crickets.... and then she started on some other Rush-fueled ranting rightwingtarded talking points.

Luntz can go eff himself alongside the effen moron that he enabled to be "elected" to the highest office in the land.

Now Democrats are being so "unreasonable" as to demand that we have some sense of sanity & dignity prevailing in how our country is run. Why how very extreme & completely unreasonable of us! How dare we demand that the US President act, you know, Presidential?? Why the very idea.

MAGA!!1! my azz.

... do I hear FIFTH Way? Going once. Going twice ...

The Fourth Way? Because Third Way are Splitters? Or is this like Taco Bell's Fourth Meal advertising? Except Taco Bell is actually good, for what it is. And in the future all restaurants are Taco Bell. Also, in the No Labels poster, is the worker painting over the stars to obliterate them? You would think No Labels would want to paint over all the Red and Blue with...white? Or I see a Red state and I want to paint it black?

Don't forget about the New Center, the spin-off of No Labels run by famed moderate Bill Kristol. Not to self-promote too hard, but I wrote a little about these idiots:

Frank Luntz

Voters on both sides have become more extreme over past 20+ years, and demand the same from their representatives

As an optimist (most of the time). I like to hope for folks like Luntz who has had a big role in so many pigs in the pig pen wearing the brightest fluorescent red lipstick for at least 20 years.

Helping those pigs out of the pen. The farther they moved away from the norms of the pen, the more they pointed blame at others for letting them abuse their freedom(s) and pointing how far away everyone else was from them.

My opinion of Frankie is that the self profit motive is acceptable enough for him to promote the God loving and conservative family values and proud patriotism Kim Jung Un displays of America where Democrats and those rascally Libs do not.

Basically another cause harm for pay type of guy. He can live in his gated community from all the havoc and disorders he promotes.
