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.]
benburch was here!
Yep! It would be a piece of cake. For a new administration to formulate a plan, disseminate it to known loyal operatives within the government agencies capable of facilitating it, training them and then accomplishing it; all within the first 8 months of coming into office: No big deal (as long as one has the 'Easy' button).
Karl, you're a genius, you bastard!
Thats what this is to the DUmmie, a freakin action movie. They are clamoring madly to "save the day, just in time!". It is part of the self reinforcing delusion. They have, for 5 years now, warned of the impending DOOM in this country, and for 5 years, nuttin's happened. But DOOM is just around the corner, dontcha know, always JUST AROUND THE CORNER.
They keep moving that corner back, however, and in the case when they DO regain some kind of power, why, then, they will have saved the day! DOOM will have been prevented, just in the NICK of time, because they won!
Really, this is delusional thinking at its best.
It has gotten now, with the Democrats counting their chickens a little too soon, that if they don't take over at least one house of Congress, we'll see mass depression on a scale unwitnessed since, well since the canceling of "The West Wing". If, somehow, the Republicans actually made GAINS, there would be mass suicides...
Let me ask your expert opinon on this: Wasn't there any honor of the dead from 9-11? Wasn't there any hatred directed toward the terrorists? (all without blaming Bush)
I was gonna ask for info about the 'goggle bomb'. Thanks PJ.
42. We don't deserve to exist any more. Our Karma has come back to us and all is lost.
DUmmie tears taste so sweet!
Ya know, I have really never seen a suprise birthday party go off without a hitch.
I wonder which would be harder to keep secret, this or that.
There just ain't no figuring with some people.
Is there a thread on the DU where they try to do a FReeper funnies?
I would love to see that.
First, many of them could not even read our big words but second the cursing and frothing would be classic!
And of course it would be even funnier when PJ-Comix picked it up and we tore it apart here!!!!
Welcome to my Good Taglines list (scroll down a bit)
You know, I don't watch ANY of those shows (Grey's, Housewives, etc.) -- but I might start.
We're funny, but the political humor is a little more highbrow and intentional.
We have our moonbats, but they are on moral or religious issues so those topics are lost on the Left.
It is an interesting proposition you make -- it actually kind of helps us define the differences. They can scream about us but THEY CAN'T MAKE FUN OF US.
They promise defections to Canada and suicides after every election loss. It never happens. We just can't get no satisfaction.
try that this way
"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 DUmmies are inept predator wannabees that survive only because of the indulgence of their parents and the nanny state.
It's so funny to watch the DUmmies carefully re-written version of the 8 years of CLinton deconstructed in a two night made for tv movie.
Well, that's not entirely fair. What about Not One Damn Dime day? Wasn't that a succ--- oh, never mind. LOL!
Reagan biopic written by shameless, hyperpartisan leftists nuts and features Ronnie looking in the Bible and discovering he's the AntiChrist. PULLED.
Path to 9/11 is based on the bipartisan (but still anti-Bush leaning) 9/11 Commission report, and describes Bill Clinton's actions in the same way that report did. EDITED SLIGHTLY.
Yes, truly a grave injustice perpetrated by legions of neo-con operatives there! Morons.
BTW, have you ever noticed how many Lefties can't speel "Reagan?" I get lectured by this one local moonbat over email all the time, and every time he tells me he voted for "Reagon" twice.
Guess I should have held my criticism. :-)
Indeed, you guys are to the left of American democracy.
Its pretty pathetic that I haven't seen ONE DUmmie call his compatriots morons for harping on this topic for so long. Are they really so retarded that they cannot understand that CLINTON HAD 8 YEARS AND BUSH HAD 8 MONTHS TO STOP BIN LADEN? Guess who the movie is going to focus on more? Its not rocket science.
>>They can scream about us but THEY CAN'T MAKE FUN OF US.<<
Truth be told!
Ironic you should point that out. 23 years ago my wife threw a surprise 40th for me. She was hostess at a restaurant frequented by our corporate people and invited many of them, including the president, VP's, etc. She asked our Industrial Relations manager to get me there. Well, he invited me, and I showed up. Except, he wasn't there yet (in the bar, the party, unknown to me, was in a banquet room). I waited 5 minutes and left. Instead of going home, I went into town and wandered the streets for a couple hours because it was 'sidewalk sale' days in our town.
No one could find me. The IR guy was out scouring other bars thinking I'd stopped for a drink. Wrong! Our VP of mfg. told my wife "Nice party Julie, too bad Jim couldn't be here".
I finally went home and our son immediately called his mom. My boss and the IR man (all the worse for hitting those bars) came over, hauled me out of the house, and brought me to the restaurant. By then only half the people were still around. To this day she swears she'll never do anything like that again.
You're right. There's always something to go wrong. It's doubtful, IMHO, that anyone who rises to the level of POTUS, or serves directly under him, would be so stupid as to plan and execute such a thing.
It boggles my mind that the DU'ers can't figure out this basic thing.
Nothing was "gutted" except the Left.
You're entitled to your opinion, but I've seen the cut and uncut versions. It was gutted.
Sometimes irony can be very ironic. ;OP
And yet they're still whining about it like it was some kind of Rovian trick. I think we can count this as another object lesson of the principle "appeasement never works".
The left never settles for half-measures. It could have been edited to one hour and they'd still complain that it aired at all.
it's tough to get a good google bomb going when all 12 of the DUmmies that actually have posting priviliges are the only ones participating..
What exactly was taken out? I heard Rush say that it was one minute.
Heh, no kidding! And a Google Bombing doesn't even involve leaving your keyboard. That's right up DUmmie alley!
Compare that to the opposition to Path: Bill Clinton, the DNC, Sandy Burglar... it was all top-down.
Oh, and on top of that, one had some political relevance and the other was a blatant smear job on a dying man.
PJ, that was just great. Thank you!
That said, while poking around the 2,996 project, I came across a wiccan DUer who had agreed to honor 9/11 victim Ken watson...but there's nothing on her blog about him that I can see.
An excellent point about the top-down stuff. One of Rush's callers put it this way: Bush called the NY Times about the terror tracking expose and said "Don't run that story, it's bad for the country." Bill Clinton called ABC and said, "Don't run that movie, it's bad for my image."
All aboard, DUmmies, for your roller coaster ride!
How the hell can you tell from what you SAW unless you saw the original, you moron?
Yesterday on C-SPAN, there was a small meeting at the National Press Club (sparsely attended). The speakers were a group of 9/11 conspiracy theorists -- some of them 9/11 family members, but I didn't notice any Jersey girls -- who were pressing for a new, REALLY non-partisan (read: get Bush) investigation of 9/11. I could only stomach it for a few minutes, but in the few minutes that I heard, one speaker kept referring to some post-9/11 Newsweek articles that raised questions that he claimed had never been satisfactorily answered by the 9/11 Commission. One of the family members, who had lost a daughter on 9/11, said that she was not a conspiracy theorist, she just had "questions" that hadn't been satisfactorily answered.
My sense is that the 9/11 Commission DID look at those questions, and DID answer their questions. The answers were just not what they wanted to hear or believe.
Good catch, Petronski. :-D
Amazing how my brain automatically added the missing "r" when I read that line. That's what happens when I read my own stuff...until AFTER I've pressed "Send". Arrrrgh!
"This statement is almost verbatim FReeper speak from the days when we were going hot and heavy after Peter Jennings and Taliban Micky."
That must have been before my time (?)
"It must be the government.
Who else would use 767's as detonators?"
They have, for 5 years now, warned of the impending DOOM in this country, and for 5 years, nuttin's happened. But DOOM is just around the corner, dontcha know, always JUST AROUND THE CORNER.
