Reprogrammable Killbots


Ripping our country further apart year after year after year by methodically regurgitating the same lies to the same flag-waving simpletons over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.


All this was inspired by the principle--which is quite true within itself--that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.

Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.

--Adolf Hitler , Mein Kampf, vol. I, ch. X


And then they take a little break to make little jokes about Obama and teleprompters.

[Hitler's] primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.

Outstanding, as usual. I can hear the squeals now--"ooooohhhh, you brought up Hitler, not fair, not fair." Then, next week: "did you realize Liberals are Nazis. Yes, it's true. See, National 'Socalists.'" And sadly, way too much of "our" base, the people who voted for Obama in '08, do not realize that this is a long long struggle, that the boat is always going to leak pretty bad down in the scuppers, that the corn meal has weevils, that anybody who is captain of this creaky skow must of necessity have quite a number of flaws. If people who have seen the nasty truth of the GOTP still lie in bed this coming November, it's just pathetic. Doesn't anyone remember what a "symbolic" vote for Nader in 2000 did for the United States? History is what it is. Our country was founded by slave-holders, and by people who believed almost without exception that women were incapable of voting, or of living without the protection of a man.

Every allegation made by wingnuts is absolutely true. Just not against what or who they're saying is responsible.

Listen to them, then turn the target selector 180 degrees... Now it makes sense.

Family values? check. Irresponsible spenders? check. Political mudslingers? check. Clueless fucks? check!

"Nader & Nader voters are to blame for Bush "winning" in 2000"

Now there's an example of people believing the BIG LIE.

And after this last decade, they've made that last bit true again for most of the women I know.

Only Rethug Richies are left out of this calculus now and they soon will have no Constitutional rights along with the rest of us.

It's a BIG TENT.

Hurry on down!

Thanks for being one voice of reason, Dg.

"...and if reason fails, compare your opponent to Hitler." -- not in Mein Kamph, but only because of timing.

You have to admire their message discipline. Apparently, once the appropriate phrases are settled on at wingnut central, the software gets updated on a very timely basis.
