A Message To The 'Left' From A 'Right Wing Extremist'

Some discoveries are exciting, joyful, and exhilarating, while others can be quite painful.  Stumbling upon the fact that you do not necessarily have a competent grasp of reality, that you have in fact been duped for most of your life, is not a pleasant experience.  While it may be a living nightmare to realize that part of one’s life was, perhaps, wasted on the false ideas of others, enlightenment often requires that the worldview that we were indoctrinated with be completely destroyed before we can finally resurrect a tangible identity and belief system.  To have rebirth, something must first die...

In 2004, I found myself at such a crossroads.  At that time I was a dedicated Democrat, and I thought I had it all figured out.  The Republican Party was to me a perfect sort of monster.  They had everything!  Corporate puppet masters.  Warmongering zealots.  Fake Christians.  Orwellian social policies.  The Bush years were a special kind of horror.  It was cinematic.  Shakespearean.  If I was to tell a story of absolute villainy, I would merely describe the mass insanity and bloodlust days of doom and dread wrought by the Neo-Con ilk in the early years of the new millennium.

But, of course, I was partly naïve...

The campaign rhetoric of John Kerry was eye opening.  I waited, day after day, month after month for my party’s candidate to take a hard stance on the illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  I waited for a battle cry against the Patriot Act and the unconstitutional intrusions of the Executive Branch into the lives of innocent citizens.  I waited for a clear vision, a spark of wisdom and common sense.  I waited for the whole of the election for that man to finally embrace the feelings of his supporters and say, with absolute resolve, that the broken nation we now lived in would be returned to its original foundations.  That civil liberty, freedom, and peace, would be our standard once again.  Unfortunately, the words never came, and I realized, he had no opposition to the Bush plan.  He was not going to fight against the wars, the revolving door, or the trampling of our freedoms.  Indeed, it seemed as though he had no intention of winning at all.

So this guy is in favor of the GREATER of two evils? They always start out with the false assumption that Liberals LOVE the Democrats.

This last want list in R7 is no different than what the left wants for themselves.

by Anonymousreply 801/16/2013

So he doesn't think he's naive anymore? I couldn't parse out what exactly he or she is trying to say.

He's frustrated with Obama? Ok - I can see that. But there's been a lot of obstruction too.

The whole article is word soup, falling on cliches about progressives.

What a waste of time.

Oh, and dear heart, we know how to click a link. You didn't need to copy that long, clueless, pointless, drivel verbatim.

This rambling post reminds me of boys in junior high waving their hands in the air and going "I want a debate! We need to have a debate!" when all they really wanted was to insult other students. They were never as smart as they thought either. It is very boring to be accused of groupthink all the time....

by Anonymousreply 1401/16/2013

This guy - the OP, I assume is the same person who wrote it - is a lunatic. Why are there SO MANY LUNATICS out there lately? Is it the fact of a black president that sent the over the edge?

by Anonymousreply 1501/16/2013

[quote]Then why not provide a rebuttal?

Because there is literally nothing there to rebut, dear. It's wholly unsupported drivel, devoid of logic, reason, or data.

by Anonymousreply 1801/16/2013

You're a mess, OP/17. The fact that you agree with this guy's bullshit completely invalidates your opinion on ANYTHING.

[quote]used to be a democrat until I realized that they are just rethuglicans that pretend to care.

ROFL.... Sure, dear, whatever you say.

ROFLMAO.... Oh, the humanity!

He's still an idiot.

Anybody who thinks gays are a collectivist group of some kind has never participated in any gay organization. They are like herding cats.

Anyone who thinks taxing the rich and supporting the poor is some kind of bomb throwing revolutionary is not dealing on the plane of reality.

Libertarians are just folk who would be Hitler if they had the guts.

by Anonymousreply 2101/16/2013

Agreed. This really doesn't make any sense at all haha.

"If you disagree, pick one issue, any single issue, and provide a response."

Reproductive rights. Thuglicans are for personhood amendments, transvaginal ultrasounds, abstinence ed (leading to pregnancy), and outlawing commonly available birth control methods they don't like. Quite a few support bringing pregnancies to term in the case of rape. They revile president Obama for having the termerity to state that he'd rather not have one of his daughters get pregnant in their teens.

Democrats are far more sensible about birth control and family planning. That is a fact and you know it. So much for getting government off our backs!

DADT repeal

Dream Act

Withdrawal of support for DOMA

Ending the war in Iraq

Ending the war in Afaghanistan

Assuring vastly more available healthcare with the Affordable Health Care Act

Support for gay marriage

The Lily Ledbetter Act

Saving the American auto industry through intervention

Executive orders for gun control

That'll do as a start.

Dear Liberals, please let conservative run the government. Come on, think of all 50 states being just like Mississippi. Mmmm. Makes my 3 incher rock hard. And we could shoot more things too. Can I get a yee haw for Jesus?

Harvard and MIT versus Ole Miss. Of course Harvard is tainted by groupthink and Ole Miss is full of independent thinkers. That's why everyone all over the world is dying to go to Ole Miss and not Harvard or MIT.

No-no-no, OP. You're quite wrong. You need a new hobby. You're not suited for politics or philosophy.

I can read anything written by someone who uses the word "tyranny" not meaning it in jest.

by Anonymousreply 2801/16/2013

After the first few sentences I realized it was going to be nothing but drivel so I bailed.

You're a fuckwit, OP.

This guy is a moron and so is R2.

Today's reminder that Libertarians are complete fucking idiots is brought to you by Goldline. Remember, when hyperinflation hits and fascist thugs take your pot away from you, you can always count on Gold!

I thought that these libertarian Paulbots disappeared into the pot haze inside their own asses after the election.

Blah, blah, blah, blah.

by Anonymousreply 3401/16/2013

It is funny to see him decry "government" as the great evil in the world fighting against "the people" and then in the next paragraph admonish liberals for thinking only in terms of "groups."

by Anonymousreply 3501/16/2013

It calls from the mud complaining that others have somehow been spattered as it spits at them.

Nah, this one has been around for years, a particularly stubborn example of the breed. Clueless, of course, but that goes with the territory.

His tone is so condescending. It's like listening to a prisoner talk about how they found if they were the first person to have undergone this change.

by Anonymousreply 3801/17/2013

I doubt this guy was ever a democrat. If he was he would never, ever have gone over to the far right. The far right are mentally ill fascist bullies.

by Anonymousreply 3901/17/2013

No, some former democrats are smart enough to see that they are just as bloodthirsty as Rethuglicans.

Libertarians are the only people that see how fascism has creeped in and corrupted our government.

Written by 'Tyler Durden'. That's all you really need to know about this nonsense.

Well, sure, if you're a paranoid moron. To the rest of us, not so much.

You just keep thinking that, dear. The rest of us will get on with our lives out here in the real world.

Nah, he's immune to that, R45.

Christ, another one of those threads where it's just one guy talking to himself. Live life outside of your paranoid mind, and don't vote against your own interests, sweetheart. That'ts all there is to it. The right wing is near death for a reason.

Both the Dems and Repugs are the two parties of US imperialism!

Is there a brief summary of this mess?

I'm sure it is interesting on some level but I'm too tired from my third job to read it all.


by Anonymousreply 5601/28/2013


(D)s and (R)s are interested in reelection. They will do and say anything to get votes.

Until we destroy DC, and devolve all political power to the local level, things will get worse. Civil liberty will die, government will murder and spy with impunity, and the Federal Reserve will print money to enrich the Banksters and impoverish the poor and middle class.
