I admit it. Im envious. Everybody but me seems to get a Day of Rage. The Iraqis, the Yemenis, Egyptians, Lybians, Tunisians, Jordanians, heck, even some Israeli settlers had one. In Wisconsin, the public sector union members even stirred themselves from the faculty lounge sofas and donut shops for a Month of Rage.
So its only fair that I have a Day of Rage too. I have a bull horn and posters with pictures of people Im raging at all with little Hitler mustaches drawn on in Sharpie.
(Question: Before Hitler came along, what did angry liberals draw on pictures of people they didnt like? And what if you were protesting Hitler himself? Would you erase the mustache?)
I have a site all picked out near the county government center. Its wide open enough to accommodate huge seething crowds of the disenfranchised, but has several tall buildings, atop which network camera crews can get panoramic footage of the swelling throng.
The only problem is the swelling throng. If it lasts for more than four hours, contact your doctor. But my problem is I dont have a crowd for my Day of Rage. Your really successful Days of Rage tend to have a cast of tens of thousands. No matter how great the rage, the sight of just one guy pumping his fist in the air and shouting into a bullhorn detracts from the sense of historical drama. Plus, its hard to surround and intimidate counter-protesters or hostile reporters.

You gotta do it like this:
“(Question: Before Hitler came along, what did angry liberals draw on pictures of people they didnt like? And what if you were protesting Hitler himself? Would you erase the mustache?)”
Look back at your history. Most of the progressive movement thought Hitler was a pretty good guy with his spiffy National Socialism. Of course, he wasn’t as good as Stalin, with his pure-as-snow communism. But he was pretty good.
Then he made the mistake of attacking Stalin. Progressives swung hard against Hitler right at that point.
So for years, Hitler’s big sin (ala progressives) was NOT that he was a right winger. It was that he attacked a communist country. Now, the story is all different.
They are conflicted about Hitler because his organization of society and the economy looks a lot like their ideal (minus the dead Jews in his own country—for American progressives, the dead Jews will be in Israel and others will do the dirty work. At least Hitler did his own dirty work. Weird for a movement that started out with a whole lot of Jews in the movement.).
Wow. This post is both totally nuts and completely spot on.
“Wow. This post is both totally nuts and completely spot on.”
Not sure how to take that. But I’ll interpret it as a lavish compliment :)
