Same planet, different worlds – Inside the mind of an Obot


Ever wonder what goes through the mind of an Obot? Here is a peek inside the mind of “Zandar,” a front-pager at Buffoon Juice. He appears to be a tad upset with Kevin Drum for criticizing Dirty Harry’s evidence-free accusations against Mitt Romney:

You want to know what sophistry, disingenousness and lying as a virtue really are, Kevin? Four years of outright vitriolic nonsense involving Democrats being called terrorist sympathizers who are willing to kill Americans, fascists waiting to round us up and take our guns and our liberty, anti-American agents of foreign governments undermining the country, and nihilists waiting to foment a national race war, in particular directed at one Barack Obama. It’s having his wife, the First Lady of the United States, referred to as “Moochelle”. It’s having Republicans completely lie in order to take rights away from anyone who disagrees with them politically, the relentless effort to disenfranchise and crush the political and socioeconomic power of those groups they cannot control into voting for them, those who resist an entire television and radio empire dedicated to the sole propagation of insidious garbage.

[…]

Instead you climb up on your high horse and lecture us about how we shouldn’t stoop to the level of the Republican Party by actually equating Democrats supporting the one time I can honestly remember in the last year that the Democrats actually stood up against the mile-high shitstorm of constant lies spewed by the GOP and actually drew a line to the Tea Party, and your first instinct is to fold the card table and let them keep getting away with it, including letting Romney get away with not releasing his tax returns. Why should any Democrat in America take a stand against these jagoffs when our side says “No, what we’re doing makes us just as bad as they are!” and we concede? That’s “contemptible stuff”? Have you been paying attention?

Republicans certainly believe the ends justify the means, and until we knock off this moronic cowering, they’ll keep on winning. Jesus seal the saucer section and drop the warp nacelles, man. Get a goddamn spine. These guys are trying to eradicate our political, economic, and social power here if you haven’t noticed. Me? I’m okay with Harry Reid saying “I think Mitt Romney is full of shit” because you know what? He is.

Not much has changed in the last two weeks, man. We’re still waiting for Romney to even begin to tell the truth. How dare we call him on that, right? We’re still in a situation where one side has to play by the rules and the other side is too busy smearing the rulebooks with their own feces and setting them on fire. Stop with the false equivalence, will ya?


You can practically see the flecks of spittle on Zandar’s monitor and keyboard. The comments that follow his post aren’t any better.

Now normally I love a good rant, but Zandar’s is so far removed from reality that it’s disturbing. If you didn’t know any better you would think that the GOP controls all three branches of government and all the media as well.

There is a subtext here that this isn’t just an election, it’s a battle between the forces of good and evil. They, of course, are to defenders of truth, justice and the American Way®. I wish I could believe that that is just hyperbole.

It is scary because when people become convinced of their own righteousness they start thinking that the ends justify the means and when you are doing God’s Work you cannot sin. That kind of thinking leads to the dark side.

Principles are meaningless if you toss them aside when they become inconvenient.

    It makes you think that if they didn’t have the outrage they couldn’t get out of bed in the morning.

    Project much?

    Meanwhile the eviil right uses humor.
    Love this :

    • My thoughts exactly. Jeebus. Are we sure he/she/it was not writing about the DNC and teh roolz committee? Oh and the television and radio empire? MSNBC, CNN, ABC et all?
      This person has completely lost it. Fomenting a race war? Obama, check.Sympathizers willing to kill American citizens? Truth.
      Oh and I don’t call her Moochelle. The proper name is Meanchelda.

  4. Junkies love their junk. If you threaten to take it away, they will strike at you. “She takes a swing, but she can’t hit!”

    There’s crazy, and then there’s Obot crazy. Maybe that can be fixed with some pills. Or maybe a massive loss in November will wake some of them up. Then there’s Buffoon Juice crazy. They’re extra special. What’s scary is they don’t know they’ve crossed over into sociopath land. That will be interesting to watch in November.

    “…those who resist an entire television and radio empire dedicated to the sole propagation of insidious garbage.”

    This always makes me laugh. Apparently Obama supporters don’t watch TV or access the internet. I guess their reality is beamed directly into their heads from the light bringer himself.

    Seriously, if you haven’t been sitting around sucking up the media’s “insidious garbage,” how do you know about chick fil A, Harry Reid, and the latest talking points?

    • Lulu says:

      They have no sense of proportionality or system to determine ranking of importance or priority. They remind me of chickens. Ducks are smarter.

    This dude needs to be committed. Maybe rehab too. Most folks who have an audience know the difference between rhetoric and reality. Its when they actually believe their own rhetoric that they get dangerous both to themselves and others. Thats where the viscereal hatred originates from. This Zandar perceives rhetoric as reality. The dude is dangerous.

    Comedians in this country have made fun of presidents since George Washington. Even in wartime jokes were made about them and people laughed.
    today if a comedian makes a joke about backtrack they get death threats.
    This is not the America I know or want for future generations. Bill Ayers must be so proud of his work

    “We now have a new GSA scandal – one that involves the Obama White House,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These documents clearly show that federal agencies colluded with the Obama White House to allow the Occupy Wall Street protestors to violate the law with impunity. These documents tell us that the GSA and DHS can’t be relied upon to protect federal workers or property.”

    I can only stop by from time to time these days. And I don’t comment nearly as much as I’d like. But I rec’d this from the NewYorker this week and I so wanted to respond to them. The article is about 7 pages long and throughout the article I was waiting for the shoe to drop. It dropped, of course, on the final page. And if they hadn’t mentioned Mitt Romney by name, you’d have sworn they were talking about TehOnce…

    The most striking feature of Mitt Romney as a politician is an absence of any responsibility to his own past—the consuming sense that his life and opinions can be remade at a moment’s need. Romney, according to Romney, never favored the individual mandate, or supported abortion rights, or opposed the auto-industry bailout, or did any of the other things he obviously, and on the record, did.

    …snip…

    When, in 1978, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints abandoned the rule prohibiting blacks from serving as priests, one church leader, Bruce McConkie, explained, “It doesn’t make a particle of difference what anybody ever said about the Negro matter before the first day of June 1978.” You could find, or think you’ve found, a similar logic behind Romney’s blithe amnesia when it comes to the things he used to think and say.

    …snip…

    It’s unfair to say, as some might, that Mitt Romney believes in nothing except his own ambition. He believes, with shining certainty, in his own success, and, more broadly, in the American Gospel of Wealth that lies behind it: the idea that rich people got rich by being good, that the riches are a sign of their virtue, and that they should therefore be allowed to rule.

    Colorado (Quinnipiac/CBS/NYT Poll): Obama trails Romney 50:45 (likely voters)

    President Obama should have a lot going for him in Colorado. The state is young (median age 35.5), nearly 20 percent Hispanic and is packed with Democratic newcomers who have transformed a historically Republican stronghold into a bona fide battleground. Those were among the factors that helped him win by a nine-point margin, 54 to 45 percent, in 2008.
    But the Colorado where the president will campaign over the next two days poses new challenges. A Quinnipiac University/CBS/New York Times poll of three swing states released Wednesday shows Obama trailing former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, 50 to 45 percent, among likely voters. His advantage over Romney with women (51 to 43 percent) is significantly smaller than in Virginia (54 to 40 percent) or Wisconsin (59 to 36 percent), the other two states covered in the poll. His deficit in Colorado among men (Romney has a 56 to 39 percent edge) is larger.
    There also appears to be a softness to Obama’s support in Colorado: 11 percent said they might change their minds before Election Day, compared to 6 percent for Romney.
    On the economy, the news for Obama is just as troubling. Romney enjoys a 10-point edge (51 to 41 percent) on the question of who would do a better job with the economy. In Virginia and Wisconsin, the two candidates are running essentially even on the issue, the poll found.
