Skip to comments.The Creepy Left's Civil War And Our Big Opportunity
Posted on 05/20/2012 7:33:50 PM PDT by Absolutely Nobama
For the last couple of months, many of the pointy-headed talking heads who inhabit The Fox Neocon Channel (FNC), PMSNBC, and the Communist Newspeak Network (CNN) have been babbling about the in-fighting on the Right. Many have wondered if the GOP Establishment's Golden Boy Mitt Romney has been damaged by the lukewarm rececption of him by the GOP's Conservative base. (As of this writing, it is unknown if the Bellvue staff has allowed Tokyo Rove to have shoe laces yet.) Night after night, we've had nothing but on air hand-wringing from the likes of Ann Coulter and the rest of the GOP-E's apologists who claim that the normal and healthy debate of the Primary process would somehow derail the quest to send Chairman Obama to the lecture circuit four years ahead of schedule.
The funny part about all of this is the fact that these so-called Wizards of Smart have missed the other ideological civil war that may very well sink the Dog-Eater In Chief. The Creepy Left has its own morale problems, as the Anarchist Left and the Professional Left are now pointing their Hammers and Sickles at each other. At this point, it seems that Maoists and the Stalinists have had enoug of each other.
From the commie dirt bags at Adbusters:
(Emphasis added where appropriate, smart alecky comments are in brackets.)
"Occupy will come out swinging May 1 with a General Strike in 115 cities A month of visceral nonviolent actions will follow. We will flex our tactical muscles, dream of a new world order and #playjazz like never before.
From Slavoj iek [the actual founder of the "Occupy" (bowel) movement] in todays Guardian:
'The protesters should beware not only of enemies, but also of false friends who pretend to support them, but are already working hard to dilute the protest. In the same way we get coffee without caffeine, beer without alcohol, ice-cream without fat, they will try to make the protests into a harmless moralistic gesture.'
The clicktivists at MoveOn are channeling Occupys intensity into legal, symbolic rallies that bolster Democratic Party campaign promises. Check out the 80 organizations backing MoveOns 99% Spring: most of them are the same old lefty cabal thats ruled over and stifled the political left for the last 20 years. But there are also some flowers among the vegetables and we should try to get them back. Folks like the Ruckus Society or the Rainforest Action Network groups whose bold civil disobedience inspired us all in the past. We still remember how the tactical brilliance of John Sellers, a former Ruckus Society leader, was so feared that he was preemptively arrested, charged with 14 misdemeanors, including 'possession of an instrument of crime' his cell phone ha ha! and held on $1 million bail during the Republican National Convention protests in 2000.
Hey jammers, lets get some of these wild flowers back Head over to the 99% Spring and look through the list of affiliated organizations. Decide for yourself which groups you respect then call them for a chat or send them an email or a tweet. Ruckus Society is at 510-931-6339, email@example.com, @Ruckusociety; Rainforest Action Network at 415-398-4404, firstname.lastname@example.org, @RAN Lets nudge our friends back into the Occupy camp in time for the May Day General Strike."
"99% Spring" ? What the hell is that ?
(Emphasis added where appropriate, smart alecky comments are in brackets.)
"DATE: February 15, 2012 TO: America RE: The 99% Spring Things should never have reached this point. [Yeah, War Criminal Obama never should have been elected.]
Every day, the American Dream seems a little farther away. [Ya think ?] More of our grandparents are being thrown from their homes. [and their Medicare is being slashed by Obamacareless] Our mothers and fathers cant retire because their pension funds tanked. Our brothers and sisters are burdened by student loan debt. For our children, budget cuts have resulted in crumbling schools, skyrocketing class sizes, and teachers being denied the supports they need to do their best. Our friends and family are being denied collective bargaining rights in their workplaces and are falling further and further behind. Our neighbors are being poisoned by pollution in our air and water. [Environmental Justice alert!]
The numbers are staggering: in recent years, millions of jobs have been destroyed, homes foreclosed, and an unconscionable number of children live in poverty. [In 'recent years' Chairman Obama and his gaggle of psychos in the Democrat Party have been running the asylum.]
And worst of all: this is no accident. It is a result of rampant greedthe deliberate manipulation of our democracy and our economy by a tiny minority in the 1%, by those who amass ever more wealth and power at our expense. [Funny how they forget about the 1%ers who are lib Dims, ya know, the Nazi Pelosi's of the world.]
We are at a crossroads as a country. We have a choice to make. Greater wealth for a few or opportunity for many. Tax breaks for the richest or a fair shot for the rest of us. A government that can be bought by the highest bidder, [like George $oros] or a democracy that is truly of the people, by the people, and for the people.
The choice is in our hands. This spring, we will act on that choice and rise up in the tradition of our forefathers and foremothers. [There is no such word as 'foremothers'.] We will not be complicit with the suffering in our families for another year. We will prepare ourselves for sustained non-violent direct action.
From April 9-15 we will gather across America, 100,000 strong, in homes, places of worship, campuses and the streets to join together in the work of reclaiming our country. We will organize trainings to:
Tell the story of our economy: how we got here, whos responsible, what a different future could look like, and what we can do about it Learn the history of non-violent direct action, and Get into action on our own campaigns to win change. This spring we rise! We will reshape our country with our own hands and feet, bodies and hearts. We will take non-violent action in the spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Gandhi [Blah, blah, blah...] to forge a new destiny one block, one neighborhood, one city, one state at a time.
We know great change is possible. We inherit a history of everyday people standing up for their own dignity, freedom, and self-determination, shaping our direction as a country. The seamstress in Alabama who launched a bus boycott. The farmers in New England and Virginia who imagined we could be a free nation. The workers in Flint, Michigan who occupied their plant to win collective bargaining rights.[Worked out swell, huh ? Flint is a 'worker's paradise', huh ?] The farmworkers in California [who still have water] who liberated our fields. The women in New York who dreamed they could one day speak with equal voice. The mother who stood up in Love Canal to stop the poisoning of her community. And the students who risked their lives during Freedom Summer to register voters.
In the last year alone we watched the teachers and fire fighters of Wisconsin stand for the rights of workers. And we joined those who Occupied Wall Street, inspiring us to stand with the 99%.
We will rise this spring, because we DO hold these truths to be self evidentthat all men and women are created equal, that we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. [Yeah, like these commie schmucks believe that. They might as well say that they also attend Church every Sunday while they're at it.]
Will you rise with us? Can we count on you to join us April 9th to 15th to stand with the 99% for America?"

As you can see, there are some heavy hitters on that list, many of them with ties to Chairman Obama. (For example, Van Jones was our Dear Leader's "Green Jobs Czar" until he was outed by Glenn Beck and quietly fired. The traitorous Jodie Evans was a bundler for His Chairmanship during the '08 Popularity Contest.)
And yet, Adbusters seems to hate the above list almost as much they hate the so-called 1%. The biting sarcasm in the first quote shows it.
Here's the point, folks: The Left is in disarray, and from the looks of it, getting desperate. The bizarre alliance of malcontents, enviro-whackos, union thugs, race baiters, and bourgeoisie socialists seems to be breaking down. They know that the gig is up and that the American people have had enough of them. Most folks are tired of being called racists by snarling pseudo-intellectual Marxist college professors. Most folks are tired of having their religious values being questioned by Anti-God Left. Most folks are tired of paying taxes while their neighbors do not. Poll after poll shows that the vast majority of Americans know that we're on the wrong track.
This is our time, fellow members of the Patriotic Right. If we play our cards right (no pun intended), we can set the Creepy Left back for decades while it destroys itself. All we have to do is stick to our principles. It's that easy. While all eyes are on the Presidential race, we can pack the Imperial Senate and the House with no-nonsense Conservatives who will have the testicular fortitude to override vetoes, ignore the press, and make the cuts that are necessary to ensure the United States doesn't enter the Third World, regardless of who is in the White House.
The Doomsday Clock is at 11:58:59......
Socialism on the march ping!
Wow, people with out jobs will refuse to work!
Boy am I scared!
Well, they do kinda have jobs-—they’re professional slackers.
Is OWS dangerous ? No, but its creator, Slavoj Zizek, is. Zizek is a real deal Red from the bad old days of the Iron Curtain. Eventually, we’ll have 1968-like violence. It’s only a matter of time.
One of the things I’ve noticed about the Left is how fractured it truly is. On one side you have the Authoritarian Left and on the other you have the Anarchist Left. The Authoritarian Left seeks the indoctrination of the individual. (Think Nazi Germany, the USSR, etc.) The Anarchist Left is more concerned with collectivism by brute force. (Cambodia, Mao’s China, the French Revolution, etc. It’s also why OWS uses the term 99%, in other words, they’re trying to install mob rule.)
Oh my stars and garters!
They are going to slack off on slacking off!
I do agree that eventually these people will be agitated to violence. We have already seen the potential here in Ohio where the FBI infiltrated a small group of the Occupy movement that had planed to blow up a bridge.
One of them was actually some what of a leader in the Cleveland Occupy movement.
They also started a mini-riot at the NATO meeting in Chicago. According to the Fox Neocon Channel (FNC), the Occutards wanted to attack Rahmbo Deadfish’s mayoral residence and Chairman Obama’s campaign headquarters.
Large numbers of stupid people can cause great damage.
All you real anarchists, don’t buy into the crap these sell-outs are handing you. Take over the convention. Raise a ruckus like only you can, and shout down those plastic banana occupiers. Don’t be like those Republicans who are only interested in winning./hehehehehe
They often, as Rush so eloquently puts it, illustrate absurdity by being absurd.
Eventually, they will become extremely violent. It won’t matter if it’s by design or by accident, eventually OWS will become extremely violent. Before we know it, 1968 will happen all over again. All the pieces are in place.
In any event, is there anything happening in Israel that the American media is not telling us or lying about ?
Yes. Jews and Arabs are going about their business, usually interacting constructively. Jews build houses, and hire Arabs to do the work, and to work in factories in Judah and Samaria. Arabs in remote corners of Israel have emergency medical situations, and the army clinics, paramedic ambulance drivers, and nurses in the nearby Jewish “settlement” and military bases provide immediate care over and above what should be expected of them with their limited skills and equipment, and then send them on to the hospitals. In 1967, there were 75,000 Arabs in Hebron, all Muslim. At present, there are over 150,000, only about 1,000 of them Jewish. The closer a “final status” agreement gets, the more Arabs flee to Jordan, apply for Israeli citizenship if they live in Jerusalem, or just plain flee. Jewish girls, either the leftist idiot activist type, or pubescent rebels, are frequently kidnapped by Arabs, and there are occasional rescues organized when one of these girls reaches out for help. There are also entire tribes of Bedouins and clans of citified Arabs who have been practicing some form of Judaism in secret, usually lighting candles Friday night. And Christian Arabs in Bethlehem, Bet Jaaleh and the surrounding areas, are being persecuted into oblivion. Also, the “West Bank” has got to be the largest river bank in existence. It is over 45 kilometers wide as the crow flies, and extends South to the Dead Sea and beyond, and yet it is still called a river bank, as if everyone were scrunched up and fighting over a tiny speck of land, when really it’s big enough to accomodate everyone. All this the MSM is lying about, studiously ignorant of, and/or ignoring.
“Jews and Arabs are going about their business, usually interacting constructively. Jews build houses, and hire Arabs to do the work, and to work in factories in Judah and Samaria.”
Interesting, but not surprising. One thing I’ve noticed is that every day people tend to do just fine without the media, pseudo-intellectuals, or politicians doing their best to divide them.
It’s true. No one watches the watchmen....
Don’t mind me. I just saw the Watchmen and I’m reading the book. It will be out of my system soon enough.
That’s just the short list that I could think of right away. Suffice it to say that the MSM, pseudo-intellectuals and government aparatchiks are either lying, ignorant or wrong-headed about everything, including their intentions in telling these lies. I would love to write a book about it all, but don’t have the credentials necessary to get such a book published.
Joan Peters only scratched the surface, and was completely unaware of the extensive works already published, albeit only in Hebrew, by former President Yitzchak ben Tzvi. If only I had a few abbreviations after my name, and a few years of free time on my hands, what I wouldn’t do to explode all the vicious lies.
The Mainly Slime Media in a nutshell. Excellent.
Thank you for the ping, Alan.
Loved the movie, the illustrated novel, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, The Comedian.
“I would love to write a book about it all, but dont have the credentials necessary to get such a book published.”
I’d read it. You have a unique view of the Middle East that no one in the media has. You’re not a pointy-headed pseudo-intellectual or some self important journalist. You see the Middle East through the eyes of an every day citizen. That’s gold.
Rorschach is by far the most popular character among the Watchmen, and he has been for quite a while.
But I still like The Comedian the best. He’s my kinda bad boy. (courtesy ping to ex-FReeper The Comedian)
