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.
