Skip to comments.Rattling the Cage: American Psychos (Says we're "crackpots" & Palin "a defiant ignoramus")

In what other country can a movement like the Tea Party , radicalize a major party and steer it to the brink of an historic electoral upheaval?
Next Tuesday, a uniquely deranged political party is going to take over the most powerful country on earth.
The key word here is unique. The Republican Party in 2010 is the only major political party in the Western world, the only one shooting for national leadership, that has been supercharged by crackpots with crackpot ideas i.e. Tea Partiers, the generic name for Americas xenophobic, libertarian, right-wing Christian conspiracy freaks.
There are lunatic fringe movements all over, but only in the US is there a major party, a governing party, of this nature. And in Tuesdays congressional elections, this unique modern political phenomenon, the 2010 Republican Party, is going to neutralize a sane, moderate president and take back America.
This is not entertainment; this is serious.
American exceptionalism, you betcha. What other country has a Sarah Palin a defiant ignoramus with so much political power and influence, with such a good chance of becoming head of state?
Where is there an equivalent to Glenn Beck a multimedia force who brainwashes millions every day into believing theyre under the heel of totalitarian dictators, Bolsheviks or Nazis?
Where else is there a Fox News, a top-rated news program that shills for the Right, that describes a high-five between Barack and Michelle Obama as a terrorist fist-bump, that asks about the president: Do we know he wasnt a drug-dealer? and that gives a platform to a grinning, teary-eyed demagogue like Beck?
In what other country can a movement like the Tea Party, which worships Palin, Beck and Fox, radicalize a major party and steer it to the brink of an historic electoral upheaval?
This is unique.
YET ANOTHER fun fact about the GOP (Grand Old Psychos) is that while the whole world has been burning up and drying up, while everyone except a few eccentrics now understands that global warming is real and mankind has to change or were all going to die a horrible death, the Republicans say this is all a hoax. This is just the man-caused climate change mantra of the Left, to quote Sharron Angle, who is expected to unseat Nevada Democrat Harry Reid, leader of the Senate.
Find me another major political party anywhere that says man-made global warming is a myth. Find me one prominent center of scientific research where such a view is taken seriously. There is, in fact, a debate going on over global warming, and its between scientists and Republicans.
This would be entertaining, except that Americas involvement, and probably its leadership, is needed to save the Earth, and America is about to be taken over by the criminally insane.
When boiling waves are rising over the Capitol building, the Republicans, with their dying breaths, will be shouting, Its all glub, glub, glub Al Gores fault! glub, glub, glub, glub, glub...
Its very strange to remember that two years ago, the symbol of everything wrong with the GOP was George W. Bush. Today, Bush seems to be the most sober, judicious statesman compared to this new generation of Republicans. Next to Palin, Newt Gingrich and some of these people coming into Congress, Bush was Adlai Stevenson.
It amazes me how gullible American voters are. Some outsider, or insider pretending to be an outsider, gets up and says, I hate politicians, I hate Washington vote for me for senator. And they do!
The insurgents are raging against socialism, against big government, against taxes, against regulation youd think it was 1980, youd think the Reagan Revolution had never happened. You wouldnt know that even a Democratic president, Bill Clinton, announced nearly 20 years ago that the era of big government is over.
These people do make one good point Obama is cranking up ridiculous, dangerous deficits. But he also inherited a huge deficit from Bush, while Bush, by the starkest contrast, inherited a tremendous surplus from Clinton, then spent it all and much, much more on tax cuts and two wars, which left Obama with a country deep in the hole. If deficits were the Tea Partiers beef, why didnt they rise up during the last administration instead of this one?
No, this is not about deficits. This is about that weird old cowboy, survivalist, paranoid, angry white streak in American politics, and its coming out now because of economic hard times, and because the man in the White House is personally too alien and politically too liberal for Middle America.
You dont have to be paranoid to think Obamas a bad president; there are plenty of rational claims to be made against him from Right, Left or center. But the alternative to him and the Democrats the Tea Party GOP; rabid radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh (who calls the president Imam Hussein Obama); countless conspiracy-fixated bloggers; Gingrich, Palin and Beck these people arent rational. These people are nuts. Theres no grand-scale political movement on earth remotely like theirs. And it appears that on Tuesday, theyre taking over.
I used to dread the idea that China would one day replace America as the worlds most powerful nation. Now, the way things are going, I think Id be relieved.
DNC talking points. Larry Dorkner didn’t write this, it was dictated to him by Obama staffers.
That. Was. Hysterical.
It’s gonna be awesome. I already have the popcorn ready and I am actually going to turn on MSNBC at full blast just to enjoy watching Keith Overbite and company’s heads explode
Talk about an idiot. Surely he does not believe what he says. This joker must truely be a Zero Kool-Aid drinker. He needs to spend a little more time out in the Sun and realize where the variations in weather patterns come from.
What is in a name? He must really be a DORK.
Cool. We need to send this guy a pistol and one bullet, and arrange for it arrive on 3 November...
Indeed. A third-grader could have written something better than this.
This guy should go on tour. I would pay good money for tickets.
No hit piece on the TEA Party is complete with pulling out the race card.
Don’t you LOVE it when they start their spittle-flinging tantrums? Pathetically laughable.
This reads like some of Ed Schultz’ psycho talk. Far left hive mind.
This JPost article is an irony rich target, too tempting to pass by - so ........
“Where is there an equivalent to Glenn Beck a multimedia force who brainwashes millions every day into believing theyre under the heel of totalitarian dictators, Bolsheviks or Nazis?”
Richly ironic, given that Israel was settled by the survivors of the gas ovens operated by the National SOCIALIST Party. Those survivors started Israel as a socialist society, and to this day Israel is so socialist that is one place where Jews can’t make a living because of the socialism, regulation, etc.
Israeli’s can’t even own guns. Moslim terrorists have them, but private Israel arms are VERBOTEN! ! !
Another jewel of Jewish Liberal WhackoSpeak angst relates to the American rejection of anthropogenic global warming, and a pure and perfection example of WackoSpeak:
“When boiling waves are rising over the Capitol building, the Republicans, with their dying breaths, will be shouting, Its all glub, glub, glub Al Gores fault! glub, glub, glub, glub, glub...”
The last of Derfner’s “pearls strewn before the American swine” is:
“I used to dread the idea that China would one day replace America as the worlds most powerful nation. Now, the way things are going, I think Id be relieved.”
What an oinker! Larry’s line reminds all that Israel was founded by socialists, and that most Jews have far too fond a spot in their hearts for Communism.
Is this guy trying to take Mark Morford’s job? He’s almost got the whole irrational, disjointed style mastered.
This guy Derfner is well known as an idiot to regular readers of the Jerusalem post. Think Israeli Alan Grayson becomes journalist instead of politician. Bomb throwing, snot nosed, moron. That is his bio.
Hippies.Theyre everywhere. They wanna save the earth, but all they do is smoke pot and smell bad.
My first thought was, “where is the barf alert?”
Then I began to enjoy the pain being suffered by the author.
Felt a bit guilty....but it is delicious drinking it in, liberal pain....Fresh, luscious, hand wringing pain.
Life is good.
