I'm finding a way to steal this phrase, Lancey.
Why don’t Rooney and her phony baloney sister move to Ghana? Or someplace equally far and foreign. By the way, I don’t for one minute believe the fabricated Lamont “incident.” Although I DO believe that Rooney and her kind consistently root against America. Heck, they cheer for America to lose wars, why wouldn’t they side with America’s opponents in something as frivolous as a soccer game?
How about "Illuminati"?
That has a specific meaning too.
Apparently there is also a handshake.
And puppet strings.
And population control.
"Most of us believe socialism is what the socialists want us to believe it is - a share-the-wealth program. That is the theory. But is that how it works?... If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth program, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of super-rich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all. Instead it becomes the logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs. Communism, or more accurately, socialism, is not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite." - Gary Allen, None Dare Call It Conspiracy
The article revolves all around her, so why didn't she write the belief: Paying my taxes?
Why did they have a soccer game on? It’s so GAY
It seems that Kathleen Rooney is doing a metaphysical form of nude modeling in the last part of her article by espousing the principles exposed in Cleon Skousen's "The Naked Communist." Glenn Beck has referred to Mr. Skousen, too.
The guest way out of line was the one that wouldn’t shut up...One does not make everyone uncomfortable when being a guest at someone else’s home....I’d have a few things to say to such a bore, then I would leave...The hostess should have shut the guy up....and if he couldn’t, she should have told him to leave....one name to drop off for any future partys.
Rooney worked for Turban Durbin: the guy who called GIs Nazis. ‘Nough said
Kathleen's confused. When I call her ideas 'communist', I'm not name calling. I'm commenting on how her views are alike with communist and socialist goals. How can she be 'insulted' if it is what it is?
THAT tired old canard. Ann Coulter demolished this leftoid crap years ago.
I think there is more as regards Communism. Not only is there Karl Marx's economic Communism (theory of surplus value), but there is also cultural Communism, to use William Lind's description, or kitsch Communism to use David Horowitz's description; e.g., so-called political correctness.
PC is a form of Communism. Gramsci wanted to destroy the culture or Communism would never take root in western Europe or the U.S.
David Horowitz refers to PC a kitsch Communism because it is just so ridiculous or unimanginable. At least Marx's view of a classless society is imaginable, but a raceless, sexless (in terms of sex differences) society is ridiculous. PC is a further degraded form of Communism and one can taunt un American types as Communist because they probably regard America as imperialistic in keeping with Lenin's work of imperialism being another wretched stage of Capitalism.
Part of the problem is that really aren’t any communists anymore. Except for their true kook fringe, the left has more or less given up on the whole collective ownership of the means of production thing. Enough history has happened that even they realize that their preferred system is a failure in terms of its ability to create wealth. If the world went socialist, a third of humanity would immediately die of starvation. Even the left can see this. So they’ve more or less ceded that function to people who can perform actually produce, and resigned themselves to being a modifying force rather than the primary force. Their role now is to redistribute and to regulate and to demonize and to moralize and to nanny people around and to do everything they can on the social front to make middle America feel threatened and uncomfortable. The particular forms that this tends to take are more amorphous and less neatly categorized than the writer suggests, and so her little list is pretty worthless. Socialism has become kind of like pornography in that it’s about impossible to define but you know it when you see it.
See, I was thinking the c word was 4 letters, Laz, when I started reading this little article.
Actually, ‘it’ must be somewhat large in this case, eh?
Please tell me you wouldn’t hit this. ;>
Hell yeah, I'd hit it.
My goodness -- since bratwurst is not a staple of the Deep South -- I first imagined burgers and shreiking 4yo's on the grill when I read that sentence.
I agree with much of what she says here.
I would love to have a discussion with her about my own designation for the political system that the current crop of “progressives” in America are espousing: One-World Fascism, or CommuFascist.
She would have to start over in her screed against me, since her comments 1,2, and 3 do not apply.
Whenever I watch the World Cup, I root for the Amphetamines.
