TheDC Book Review: Ted Rall’s ‘Anti-American Manifesto’
the daily caller ^ | 11/15/10 | Jeff Winkler

Posted on 11/15/2010 10:06:52 AM PST by Nachum

Last Monday, cartoonist and columnist Ted Rall told MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan that the revolution is nigh. “A war is coming,” Rall warned. “Are you going to fight back? Will you do whatever it takes, including taking up arms?”

Rall was promoting his new book, “The Anti-American Manifesto,” and if you think his questions seem a little over the top, you’re likely one of “them” — a group Rall defines as “reactionary, stupid, overpaid, greedy, shortsighted, explicative, power-mad, abusive politicians and corporate executives.”

The “Anti-American Manifesto” is a relentless and unfiltered condemnation of the corrupt capitalist husk currently known as the United States of America. The book is unwavering in its message: The country is dead and rotting thanks to Them and We must rise up and burn what’s left of the corpse in a violent revolution.

How serendipitous. I just bought a new shovel, RALL.

Since they are all anti-second amendment, where are they going to get guns, and learn how to actually use them?

Does he really think that the Left could take up weapons and overthrow the state while everyone else would just sit back and not, I dunno, gun the lefties down?

I just qualified this weekend with the M16A2 rifle. I retire from the reserves in two months and can’t wait to try out my new Galil sporter in the same 5.56mm caliber.

At the same silhouette type target on the same range. Only with the words “Annoying Leftist Jerk” written across it (see, I’m not targeting any one person).

BTW, I’m a Vietnam vet. If the Jane Fonda wannabes want a hot war, then forty years will have been worth the wait.

;^)

There’s a u-tube vid out there of an interview with this guy. I think he truly believes that we will join ranks with the likes of him and rage against the evil corporate machine LOL.

"If the Jane Fonda wannabes want a hot war, then forty years will have been worth the wait."

More than worth the wait. If what 'goes around' actually does 'come around,' they've got some truly nasty lumps coming. Time for the best of the best, who got spat on and kicked to the curb when they came home, to get some big love.

Further, I think that the hundreds-of-millions of dollars that blacks in the NFL, NBA, USGA, MLB, movies, rap music, sitcoms, etc., are being paid are all a more-than sufficient form of "reparations" for America's negroes. If those mega-rich minorities want to share some of their ridiculously piled lucre with their less-motivated race-mates, that's on them.

I'm damn tired of hearing these professional victims whining about their dire plight, while America continues to turn its back on the deplorable treatment we gave to our returning Vietnam Vets. The Left that preached and manipulated this abuse is seeing it's chickens come home to roost, and it's a wonderful sight to see.

;-\

I crack up when some limp-wristed little wimp like Ted Rall starts talking about taking up arms. One good slap and he’d run home crying.

I’d report him to the SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center) as a dangerous radical, but since he is somewhat to the left of center, I don’t think that they will have Homeland Security issue a Watch and Warning on him. Would it be too over-the-top to say that his statements seem as intemperate as, lets see, Timothy McVeigh in some of his published ramblings?

Or if you like: publish yours. Let’s light this candle.

Mr. Tough Guy. All talk. This little pansy-ass looks like he’s never had so much as a bloody nose and he wants a war? Hey Rall, never mind the war, have you ever even played dodge ball? Try that first and then see if you still have the stomach for a’’ war’’.
