Sign of the times: Nebraskans Jokerize Ben Nelson
Michelle Malkin ^ | 12/22/2009 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 12/23/2009 7:42:04 AM PST by markomalley

I said yesterday it wouldn’t be long before Obama’s Jokers posters started popping up across the country.

First, Claire McCaskill.

Now, Nebraskans have Jokerized Ben Nelson. (Or rather, he Jokerized himself, didn’t he?)

Reader Tim e-mails the photos and this message:

“Saw this in small town Nebraska today less than 50 miles from Ben Nelson’s home town. This is pretty surprising to me because this is strictly an agricultural area. Nelson has consistently catered to the agricultural interests in Nebraska and so is pretty popular among the farmers and ranchers in the area. Federal subsidies are a huge percentage of area farm income. But this last deal may have been the straw that broke the camel’s back.”

A central pillar for the GOP to wipe out the Dems in 2010 elections, is the REQUIREMENT for Republicans to stop attempting to be “moderate” and start to fight like men.

Or like women.

This weeniehood has GOT TO STOP.

And this “jokerize” just might be a huge help, in demonizing democrats.

The GOP needs. Needs to throw away the kid gloves and USE IT.


The time to fight dirty has long ago arrived. Republicans please get off your croquette etiquette hang-up.

FIGHT. For crying out loud. Our nation is on the line.

It’s your job.

We, here in Connecticut, don't need to "jokerize" our political whore (apologies to all legitimate whores), he does it all by himself.

Just for the record, not all farmers and ranchers take subsidies, handouts, corporate welfare, or whatever else you wish to call it.

I’m a third generation cattle rancher, and our family has never, ever taken a dime whether it be payouts for ‘not’ growing certain crops, or even government assistance after natural disasters such as tornado and ice storm damage.

As a rule, ranchers are the most independent folks, which is why global warming folks are attacking meat production.

‘Rules’ for Conservatives

These ‘rules’ have a three-fold purpose – to illustrate the hideous and mean-spirited tactics of the Statists, have fun ridiculing them and put forward some Conservative “Stratergeries” to use back at them.

Saul ‘Lewinsky’ uses the term “enemy” in referring to their political opposition, speaking volumes on the mindset of the radical left. Instead of being fair and open-minded, with only ‘good intentions’, this is how they really see the opposition.

Numbered 1 through 13, there are really only about half that number, being just the same tired ideas repeated a few times.

Half the list drones on and on about maintaining pressure. This is very instructive in understanding the Statists. Certain species of snakes such as the Anaconda kill their prey by constriction, they do this by wrapping themselves around their prey to slowly squeeze the life of it. Statism does the same thing to Liberty, it wraps it’s slimy coils around a societies freedoms and over time squeezes the life out of them. Statism never relaxes it grip and keeps applying pressure until it crushes freedom – hence Ol’ Saul’s “Tactics” 6-12. He advocates constantly applying pressure and never giving back rights people foolishly gave up in response to a temporary crisis or two.


1. “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.”

This is a tacit admission that the Statist’s have to rely on deception and lies to advance their agenda. They can’t be honest about what they really want and who they represent, so they pretend to represent the ‘majority’ and that we all what Big government to care of us.

The Conservative knows that private individuals, working in their own self interest can easily do a better job than a bloated government bureaucracy

2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people”.

When Lies are your stock in trade, Going ‘outside the expertise of your people’ means being truthful and honest. Saul knows that the Statists can never attain power if they do that.

Saul’s advice is that the Statist’s need to stick to this area of expertise and never get pulled into the realm of facts and logic and instead Lie, obfuscate and deceive. Conservatives know that the truth is on their side, We conservatives have no need to go outside the truth and into the Statist’s realm of Lies, nor do we have any desire to. The Statist’s have to lie because it’s all they have.

3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy”.

For the Statist, this means assaulting Conservatives with Double standards and lies. It means spewing an outrageous Lie at a Conservative, and quickly following up with another big lie while the Conservative is refuting the first Lie and so on. It means overwhelming the Conservative with rhetorical BS as a way of silencing the Conservative.

We Conservatives know that with the facts and logic on our side, we can win any argument with the Statists as long as it is a fair venue. The Statists can only win if the deck is stacked in their favor and their lies aren’t challenged. They can only win when they are the Only voice or possible if it’s ratio of 5 Statists against one Conservative.

4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”

Given that Statists seemingly have no moral code, this would appear to be a good tactic for them. But in reality, they do have ‘rules’ – rules they want everyone else to live by, but not themselves – Statist’s are nothing if not hypocrites.

Therefore, we Conservatives should insist that the Statists ‘lead by example’ – live by their own set of stupid rules and admonitions.

If they favor disarming the law-abiding [gun control], they should first give up their guns and security personnel and proudly announce that they are ‘disarmed’.

They want to screw the achievers with high taxes, they should eagerly pay extra.

They want the rest of us to “go green”, fine let them give up their mansions and live in an Environmentally friendly cardboard shack somewhere first

If they want to suppress what they term “hate speech” they should be first to shut their collective pie holes.

Speaking of ‘Hate Speech’, take a look at their 5th tactic:

5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon”.

Aren’t Statists supposed to be fair minded and only have good intentions, always whining about Social justice and other types of PC crapola? This one readily illustrates that they are just duplicitous liars.

Given what we all know about them, maybe it’s not such a work of genius to propose this as a tactic, seeing that Conservatives can easily turn this against the Statist – and have lots of fun doing it.

Lies, Double standards and deceptions are not only easy to ridicule but enjoyable to demolish. Conservatives are confident in their beliefs and in the truth. Unfortunately, we have to keep on doing this because the Statists constantly repackage their lies and ideas with different terminology – same excrement in a different bag.

6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”

Lets face it, Statists can be nasty little fiends that enjoy ridiculing others to hide their own ‘Shortcomings’, hence this rule and the previous one. Clearly they would prefer not to have to contribute positively to society, that’s too hard for them, it’s too much like “Work”, better to denigrate others and have fun doing so.

They are certainly good at this “Task”, because if the Statist are good at anything besides lying, it’s spewing insults at the opposition. Or Enemy as Ol’ Saul would phrase it.

For Conservatives, there is nothing more enjoyable than eviscerating the Statist’s lying duplicity in all its many resplendent forms.

7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag”.

This may be a case where Ol’ Saul wasn’t just using some slang from the 60’s but really telegraphing what ‘he’ did on the weekends when all the whining and protesting was done. Maybe “Saul” became “Saniya“when ‘she’ headed off for a few ‘dress-up’ parties, hmmmm

8. “Keep the pressure on”

Just like the anaconda, squeezing the life out of its prey, Statists always have to maintain pressure to squeeze the Liberty and freedom out of a society. But an important distinction here is that Statist’s require the productive to fuel their vote buying revenue stream. Before they can seize full control of a society, Statist’s still require the good works of the very people they demonize – achievers and producers. They have to demonize the tax Payers (note the emphasis on ‘Payer’)– the people who actually contribute to society – in order to justify seizing their wealth.

This is important because it gives Conservatives a way to fight the Statists. As Statism wraps it’s slimy coils around a societies freedoms and liberties, it’s achiever’s and producers will either escape or gradually halt their efforts. This is why these systems invariably fail and are eventually replaced with free societies, but only at great human cost.

We conservatives can stop this cycle dead in it’s tracks if we advocate achiever’s and producers going on strike for short time periods as an act of ‘civil disobedience’ – as the Statist would say.

Alexander Tytler said that a democracy can only exist until people discover that they can vote to seize other’s people money. The corollary to that is that the crushing of a free society by the Statists can be halted if the achievers and producers refuse to cooperate with their very destruction.

9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”

This might be more than just another mention of Saul’s other life on the weekends, and what ‘she’ might look like at those Dress up parties, shudder.

This does point out the value of deterrence, as in individuals bearing arms can deter criminals and governments. All those firearms in the hands of the great unwashed, gives the Statist’s some pause in their Utopian dreams – in their deepest thought they most assuredly lament that Stalin, Hitler some of their favorite tyrants of the past didn’t have to “Deal with” ordinary citizens with guns.

10. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition”.

Isn’t this just a long-winded version of tactic number #8? Apparently, at this point in the book Ol’ Saul was running out of good ideas – as if he had any in the first place.

11. “If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside”.

Besides the idiotic new age gibberish, this tactic highlights the Statist’s head’s I win, Tails I win method of governance.

This is exemplified by the phenomena that the Statists always come out on top – even when it is their ideas that screw things up. To them, the answer is always more government, even when the problem IS the government, so they think they can’t lose.

12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.”

Again, another rephrasing of tactic #11, it really looks like Ol’ Saul had a thing for the number thirteen and wanted to Pad the list with any manner of BS, just to get to that number.

13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”

This seems to be the Statist’s favorite tactic – mercilessly go after individuals that oppose their collectivist aspirations. These are the people that always set themselves on a pedestal as the fairest minded, tolerant and only seeking justice, yeah, sure.

Tactic #5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon”, and this one should be an abject embarrassments to the radical left; instead, they proudly promote and teach these hideous methods.

Remember: The aggressor sets the rules, and according to Saul Alinsky, you should always attack an individual with ridicule and never let up. Something to always to remember about the Statists. Aside from the fact that they are consummate Liars, this is the most important lesson Conservatives can learn from these tactics.

Generally consumed with Hatred of individuality and individual freedoms, Statists are vicious little snotweasels (just following your lead, Saul) that couldn’t tell the truth if their life depended on it. Conservatives need to deal with them accordingly.

What we need is someone put on a billboard showing these aholes like Queen Antoinette after the french revolted and took matters into their own hands - i.e. guillotines. I believe that the American public is at a boiling point - if they push illegal alien amnesty we could see revolution.

A plebiscite here in the United States may be in order, based not on state lines, but Congressional districts.

The question being, do you accept the original founding doucments of the United States, or do you favor the reinterpretation that has been given to the Constitution, and the amendments that have been added subsequent to the Fifteenth Amendment?

Those districts that vote for the first alternative are allowed to join the “red state” America, and those districts that choose the second set of terms are obligated to join the “blue states”. The two countries could exist side by side, but the “red states” may be permitted to keep stern and vigilant control of those borders, only accepting those who would abide by the governing compact in force within their boundaries. Those who abuse this permission would be expelled forthwithly, without appeal. In a similar manner, should there be a dissatisfied citizen of the “red states”, the exit is always open.

The people who choose to live in the “blue states” could set up whatever the blazes kind of immigration and governance policy they want. But any incursions upon “red states” would be met with the full force of arms and diplomatic resistance, until such time as the incursion ends.

Hey, that’s racist! Uh, oh, well, maybe not.

Still, any day now I expect to see a freeware program that automatically Jokerizes any portrait fed into it. At that point, the possibilities are unlimited. OK, even if such a program doesn’t make its appearance soon, at least we got a new verb out of deal.
