Daily Kos: Sadistic, Puritan America Will Elect Rick Perry in 2012
NewsBusters ^ | 2 Sep 2011 | Tim Graham

Posted on 09/02/2011 5:08:29 PM PDT by mandaladon

Leftists are growing increasingly pessimistic about the political direction of America, which means a “neo-fascist future” is right around the corner again. On the Daily Kos, Ray Pensador explained Tuesday his theory on “Why Rick Perry Is Likely to Win the Presidency in 2012.”

Liberals, he complained, think that merely exposing and criticizing “statements and actions of the crazy, loony right...is somehow enough to convince others about the wrongness of these things.” That’s totally wrong, writes Pensador, because America is a deeply sadistic pile of Puritans that live about five minutes away from our deepest historical atrocities:

This activity springs from the faulty assumption widely shared by the Left, that our perception of reality based on logic, reason, science, empirical evidence, and willingness to compromise, is an attitude widely shared by society at large. This attitude, at the end, will be one of the main reasons the country continued its march toward a neo-fascist future under the total control of corporations and religious fundamentalists.

The great satirist, comedian, and social commentator Bill Maher has touched on this subject, pointing out that "a majority of Americans cannot name a single branch of government or explain what the Bill of Rights is; 24 percent cannot name the country America fought in the revolutionary war; nearly half of Americans don't know that states have two senators; 18 percent believe that the sun revolves around the earth." And only 39 percent believe in evolution...

Pensador complained the average liberal has an underdeveloped sense of empathy because "the majority of them live comfortable middle- or upper-middle class lives, and other influences like the seemingly omniscient propagandist effect of the corporate-owned media." If the corporate media were so powerful, how did Obama get elected again?

There is a strong legacy of puritanism in the American culture. There is a strong legacy of atrocities, of the enslavement and extermination of millions of people, of the appropriation of other people's land and property, of cruelty, of unimaginable greed.*************************I think liberals are getting desperate and paranoid.

You could say the exact same thing about communists aka progressives. Only when you say it about communists, it is true.

“Sadistic, Puritan America Will Elect Rick Perry in 2012.”

Interesting. He seems to think the opposite would be better.

Of course, the exact opposite title would be:

Masochistic, Licentious America Will Elect Barack Obama in 2012.

The end result of 50 years of liberal domination of our educational systems. So naturally, liberals blame their failings on conservatives.

All the people who are ignorant and do not know what Bill Maher says they do not know ALL OF THEM VOTE DEMOCRATIC. The idiots are the core constituency of the Democratic Party. The sycophants. The lazy. They blood suckers. The pompous know-it-alls who want to run every detail of our lives. Those are the clueless morons and ignoramuses Maher is describing him — and he is the most idiotic of them all.

The 61% who don’t believe in evolution, ironically, can probably name who we fought in the Revolution, explain the Bill of Rights, etc.

But what do I know? I am apparently just a sadistic Puritan.

God rest their benevolent souls. Was any group ever more vilified in this nation?

I think liberals are getting desperate and paranoid.

******

Me: Where was this "legacy of puritanism" when Obama was elected in 2008?

If the "legacy of puritanism" had been around in 2008, then how come Obama still won in 2008? Absurd.

Sounds to me like liberals are turning into bad losers and desperately resorting to calling people ugly names if they even dare to think about not voting for Obama in 2012.

Did it occur to liberals that this is the main reason President has a good chance of losing in 2012: Obama has shown that he is in over his head and that it is becoming painfully clear with each passing day that Obama simply does not have the leadership qualities and experience needed to be an effective President?

It has nothing to do with a "legacy of puritanism".

Neo-fascist? Isn’t one of the aspects of fascism known as corporatism? Corporatism is when the govt controls the company but puts in place a puppet head. GM, Chrysler, Obama, anyone?

The left are truly dumb shits that can’t even understand their own accusations.

Hey, I thought the Sadists voted for Obama! If they’re supporting Perry; Further proof that Obama is losing his base.

I question Perry though, if he has the support of the Sadists... I’m not sure if I want to vote for a guy that has the support of former Obama supporters.

I’m just say’n...

Three years ago, of course, the nature of the United States was one of enlightenment and sophistication - thus Great Leader. One would think the Great Leader administration has done a poor job of nurturing said enlightenment and sophistication for us to fall so quickly into the racism and troglodyte paroxisms of the past. Where were the hordes of racist Puritans in 2008?
