Posted on 09/12/2006 5:20:15 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
They just can't get over it. The DUmmies are STILL crybabying over their failure to prevent the airing of "The Path to 9/11." Their pouting has taken the form of self-pitying despair as you can see in this DUmmie THREAD titled, "I hate to say this.... But we are truly powerless in this country...." Well, I hate to say this, DUmmie, you you're right. Everything the DUmmies attempt seem to blow up in their faces including their failure to keep this movie from airing. Most likely their attempts boomeranged on them. As Rush Limbaugh said yesterday, Robert Iger of ABC was on the verge of pulling this movie but the threats made by the Left and the Democrats to pull ABC's broadcasting license caused him to react angrily against this blatant pressure. Iger knew that pulling the movie after these public threats would make both him and ABC look weak so he then had no choice but to go ahead with airing the movie. Had the Left been more diplomatic in their efforts to remove "The Path To 9/11" from the air, it might have been a different story. However, as we have seen, the Left has been acting like thugs in recent years so any diplomatic niceties are now beyond them. So let us now watch the DUmmies wallow in their own self-pitying powerlessness in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, noting that the DUmmie "Google Bomb" plot against this movie also failed, is in the [brackets]:
I hate to say this.... But we are truly powerless in this country....
[Truly powerless DUmmies are FUn to watch!]
You, me, all of us on the left or center left or for that matter, the center matter, not one bit to the opinion makers in this country of "ours"....
[You matter not one tiny bit my insignificant little DUmmie ants.]
ABC/Disney and all the rest of corporate America could care less what we think...
[Paying attention to bizarre paranoid thoughts are not exactly at the top of their agenda.]
We raised legitimate concerns about how a fictional account of a recent event would effect those watching and nothing happened...
[Enjoy your Freudenschade victory champagne.]
The right squawked about the Ronald Reagen biopic, and they yanked it faster than you can say quick draw McDraw....
[Because the right counts. You don't, little DUmmie ant.]
Over the years, American corporations have seen they are pretty much free as they continue to tramp on the rights of individuals, do what ever they want to the environment and behave in such outrageously ethically challenged matters without any real governor on their actions...
[I enjoy tramping on my little DUmmie ants just to stir them up for FUn viewing.]
This 9/11 movie is only the beginning of what is going to happen over the next two months as we watch the GOP and the corporate interests systematically destroy what is left of American Democracy...
[Getting your Election Day excuses lined up already, eh?]
I mourn for my county...
[I lsugh at my DUmmies... And now to hear from the rest of my pet DUmmie ants...]
Depends on how much they edited the piece of $hit.....
[Seeing as to how you posted this at 9:00 PM EDT on Sunday, I can now tell you that LESS than a minute was edited out. It was like the final touchup at a barbershop with a little final snipping here and there which does not change the overall general appearance a bit.]
There were NO EDITS! Not from what we saw. The entire show focused on the lost attempts to capture Bin Laden, all during the Clinton Administration. Hopefully, tomorrow will focus on the failed Bush Administration, but I'm not holding my breath.
[And don't hold your breath to watch Bush read "My Pet Goat" since it wasn't included in Part 2. However, to make you feel better, I'll read to you "My Pet DUmmie Ant."]
I am not a defeatist person, but I share your grief at the current state of affairs in our country. It just all seems to be going in the wrong, direction, the fights seem futile...I thought that the pendulum swung, hit the right hand barrier and was heading back, but not enough of our public either thinks (or is capable of thinking) or cares.
[But...but what happened to all those November victory celebrations you had just a few weeks ago?]
The pendulem can't swing back without a media. That is the key. We have to develop our own media like the right has done, in order to facilitate a progressive politcal movement.
[You already have the powerful Err America and the mighty benburch radio empire...until it was taken out by a LIGHTNING BOLT.]
The pendulum needs a little oil. The law books need dusting off. The court room needs to be cleaned. The time will come when the media will be unmuzzled. The prison cells are ready.
[The roving Chekha squads are getting warmed up in anticipation of the liquidations.]
Scew ABC, watch CBS
[I did briefly last night but Katie Couric's smeary makeup and fish lips were too hard to take for more than a couple of minutes. Oh, then there is the fact that there is almost no news on that "news show."]
All it would take it is one Democratic billionaire with the willpower to put "Air America Radio" on FM in every big city in the US. Attention: if there is a millionaire or a billionaire reading this, please contact Sheldon Drobny about investing in his new company "Nova M Radio" to buy radio stations to play "Air America."
[Attention: If there is a millionaire or billionaire reading this, please contact Sheldon Drobny about flushing your money down his toilet known as "Nova M Radio."]
Hit me today...and was thinking what you say. Hope it's just a "dark mood that we are in...just a slump.
[More like a downward slope leading to the edge of a cliff by the bottomless pit.]
Some of us ..having gone through so many years of this are ready to "BAIL." And that's many of us who are "Actively INVOLVED" in our Party after "Selection 2000" who are getting sick of this shit where our party asks us to stand up and then seems to get "very quiet." I am hoping good stuff is going on "behind the scenes" on this...and that we are just "impatient." I'll give them through this next Mid-Term Election. :shrug;
[Yeah. Have no fear. Howard Dean is handling the good stuff behind the scenes. YEEEEEEHAAAAWWW!!!!]
I personally don't trust Clinton to do the right thing and file the lawsuit. I fear we're all in for a big letdown. OTOH, Sandy Berger, Madeleine Albright and others may just file their own.
[Sandy Berger filed his lawsuit away in his socks next to the National Archives documents also stuffed in there.]
I don't know what to think...I'll have a little hope more...but Shit this is not looking good. We lay our butts on the line for these people time after time...and what do we get. I will remain hopeful for another few days...hoping for a lawsuit. It's all I can do...but I'm not so hopeful either...that we weren't "used" once again. I hope to be proved very wrong...
[Too bad but you're right.]
Don't look for heroics from HRC on this one. She's too close to the warmongers and PNACers for my comfort and at this point I wouldn't trust her with a sharpened pencil.
[Please keep your sharpened pencil away from Hillary's triangulation.]
There must be something we can do to fix the current situation. I'm just not savvy enough to know just what it is.
[Have you tried DUACing yet? DUAC! DUAC!]
I will try to remain hopeful that a Law Suit by Clinton Folks is imminent. I hope to hell that my "Dark View" is very, very WRONG! Believe me on this...We need to wait...a little...but not too long given that Dems will be voting in ..what is it? 60 Days?
[61 days. This year the voting days are divided up according to parties. Republicans on Tuesday and Democrats on Wednesday.]
If we don't "squeek by a majority" in the House we are doomed...we need to work our butts off for that. But, another failed election with Voter Disenfranchisement though Machines and throwing folks off the polls through fraud, will be the FINAL WAKE UP CALL. We don't have much time left ...and we must hope that we can change Congress to even have a "teeny voice" in the CHANGE that we Dems must do to correct all the dismantling of our DEMOCRACY/CONSTITUTION that BUSH CRIME FAMILY has done. But..it's not looking like a "landslide here" given that Clinton couldn't stop 9/11 Fakeumentary. It's not looking good...but we must have hope...or at least this DU'er is trying to have HOPE!!! Not easy, though.
[We are doomed, DOOMED I tell ya! Maybe we can pull it off in November? Pretty please! Nope. We're DOOMED!!!]
Winning in '06 is clearly our most important goal, but to have that happen, we'd better figure out how to get our voices heard.
[Hey, don't you appreciate all my efforts to get your voices heard here on the DUmmie FUnnies?]
Call me nuts but I am overcome with confidence lately. We're gonna take this sucker back. The fascists will be gone and we can kick out the remnants of the DLC stain, in order to turn us back into a winning party again.
[Okay, I'll call you nuts.]
Sorry, Carl - that's how I felt in 2004. False hope -- And that got me nowhere. We need to be reality-based and make a plan to combat them. Wishing goes nowhere fast.
[So how did all that wishing for your own alternate reality work out for you?]
Right now in my Queens NY neighborhood there is what amounts to a Bund Rally going on ie: A 911 Memorial.Complete with marching band, Kate Smith's song you know the one and the whole damn obnoxious panoply of jingoistic uber shit. So no I have very little hope that its going to get any better anytime soon.
[Another quote from the "reality based community" comparing a 911 Memorial to a Bund rally.]
I wanted desperately to pay the tribute to the victims of 9/11 that they deserved. I wanted to properly grieve for the family members who have lived this nightmare everyday for five years. But Bush and Co. has hijacked my grief, and it is replaced with rage and disgust.
[You couldn't grieve and it was BUSH'S FAULT.]
I'm sick of the pain, I'm sick of the loss, I'm sick of the moaning, I'm sick of the I don't see that it's gotten any better so it probably never will. It's a f*cking funeral around here! I'm still kinda new at DU and Olney Blue in another thread warned me that optimism was not a valued commodity among the DU community. Boy was that ever a true statement. Well fair enough. Pollyannas are pretty hard to live with and we've got to be realistic about what we're up against. But Jeeze, some of us sound like our grave has been dug and all that's left for us to do is pull the dirt in over us.
[Would you be so kind as to pull the dirt in over your own political grave? Thank you.]
Let me know if you want on the DUmmie FUnnies PING List.
In after the Ping
Yeah, because then Halliburton/Exxon/etc. will get that much more profit.
These people are both funny and frightening.
And I am Top Ten!
Considering this is in the context of complaining about a made-for-TV movie, what does this say about the DUmmies' respect for free speech?
You can lead some horses*** to radio, but you can't make thinking people listen to it.
Another DU pill-popper coming right up.
A liberal acquaintance of mine has Bush Delirium Syndrome so badly, I have started calling him Mahmoud. (During his latest rant, I interrupted him and asked if he was talking to me or campaigning for President of Iran?) At any rate, he once remarked how he was switching his prescriptions meds for his depression to something new. He then asked me what meds I took.
My reply: "I don't take meds. I breathe Republican air."
The reason they won't sue can be summed up by one word: discovery.
"Thank you" notes from benburch?
LMAO. First off, the fascists were the Democrat Senators who threatened to yank ABC's licsense if they refused to make the "proper" edits - thats government interference of free speech. Second, I love the way you talk about holding a purge of the DLC...right after complaining about fascism.
So if we lose we're doomed, except that we aren't doomed. Self-contradiction within two sentences... not bad, but not a new DUmmie record.
I'm trying to think what rights this moron thinks were violated when this show aired. I would think more people's rights were voilated in Green Bay and Oakland by the airing of those two team's NFL games.
Well, there's a first time for everything...
The Path to Censoring the Path to 9/11, a BillyJeff and DNC production.
A Tic-Tac-Toe drawing on your ass?
I can't believe I saw a DuFu come through without the obligatory Karl Rove reference! The DUmmies are letting me down!
Shhhh....!! Don't tell these guys that we still secretly control the Diebold machines so the election is already in the bag. Shhhhh....!
So the "google bomb", bombed?
Oh well, perhaps they can bring ABC to its knees by not watching "greys anatomy" ;)
The wife is not a political junkie and hadn't heard of this garbage. She was speechless. She didn't mention the age of the woman, but this is a college town so it very well may have been a student or someone related to faculty. My guess would be the later.
Unfortunately, I don't either. I'd relinquish all Christmas and birthday presents for the next five years, hell make it ten, to have him file that lawsuit.
This DUmmie has managed to be wrong on all three points: Their concerns weren't legitimate, the account wasn't fictional, and it was still gutted in the editing room.
They should be proud of what the Clinton Mafia accomplished here, but they're too stupid to recognize their own success.
Kinda makes you wonder what's wrong with her county. LOL
Thanks for all you do, PJ. This stuff is great.
That's a great line.
You have that in one. I don't the correct term for these shows, but "news" it is not. I'm grateful I can read and have access to the internet.
.....ABC/Disney and all the rest of corporate America could care less what we think...
This statement is almost verbatim FReeper speak from the days when we were going hot and heavy after Peter Jennings and Taliban Micky.
Just wait until they find out that rich have to pay more for Medicare. I have no sympathy for these old, rich, white men. They are reaping the karma of dissolute lives with 3 martini lunches, divorces and affairs, child support evasion etc. Maybe they should check into the hospices they like so much.
Last night, Katie's face looked very disturbing. Smudgy makeup plus her fish lips were more noticeable than ever.
Cheer up folks, you can still move to Cuba where your Daddy will Take Care of you guys! Whoever votes DinocRat has a Death Wish.
Pray for W and Our Freedom Fighters
But....but....but....DUAC was supposed to fix that!
Well, good luck with that. Maybe if you had something to say that America actually wants to hear, it might work.
Soros got tired of throwing money down the s#*thole? eh?
"DUAC" couldn't even get a Google bomb going.
This is FUnnie. They run head first into a battle when no one asked them to and then whine that they were "used".
"DUmmie, you you're right"
That would make a great T-Shirt!
Best benburch joke yet. Good job!
Even Soros didn't buy stations because they cost a lot more than brokering same.
It must be the government.
Who else would use 767's as detonators?
But.....but.....but.....billionaires are evil corporate types who make their ill-gotten gains off the backs of the less fortunate.....
Rush had a wacko lib call in yesterday who spouted off on conspiracy nonsense. He even stated that Rush "knew" this to be true. Yeah, right!
Rush had a pretty good comeback. He stated that for this to be true there'd have to be hundreds of complicit people in governmant who would have to be killed, for the government to even hope to get away with such a plan. He then went on to say that (paraphrasing) "Oh, that's right, they were the ones who were killed in the airplane crash in Pennsylvania".
I wondered whether this idiot caller hung up thinking 'boy, I never thought of that. It has to be true because Rush admitted it'.
They're out there!
Yes! And you can buy the button Bush used at Staples!
