The Schadenfreude Thread
Various Sources ^ | 2002.11.05 | B-chan

Posted on 11/05/2002 8:58:08 PM PST by B-Chan

To paraphrase the Klingon proverb, "Schadenfreude is a dish best served cold. ".As evidence, here's a random quote from a Dedicated User of another online discission forum that shall remain nameless:

"Nov-05-02, 11:18 PM (ET)
I need a drink and a political party with some balls. F--- it!! I give up, We lost it all. I know it's soon but the repugs have not lost one Senate seat and already took the house. Let them run the country for an eternity or at least until the American people can't stand the pain any longer, America deserves what it gets. I'm moving to Canada, F--- this neo-fascist country.

As far as a political party with a back bone , The DNC has blown it and blown it "Big time" . I give up!! Where do I turn for some representation? Maybe Independent? Who cares, Im moving to Canada."

Hee hee hee. And the night is still young...

A few highlights from tonight:

Daschle is now minority leader again,don't have to wait until January.

Carville putting his head in a trashcan on CNN. (Where it belongs)

Mondull, a relic from the failed Carter administration, is finally done in politics for good.

Can I just say, this is a moment I will treasure forever. I'm only 19, I'm a college student and it's often discouraging to think that the American people will elect Dems. But tonight... oh, I think I understand what 94 was all about now.

I'll remember how this feels. I'll be working twice as hard next time. God Bless America!

Another Demented Unemployable waxes poetic about the fate that awaits America now that the GOP is in charge:
tedoll78 (555 posts)
Nov-05-02, 11:54 PM (ET)

When our nation suffers for its unwise choices today, I will smile and simply say, "I told you so."

I want them to induce massive poverty.
I want them to allow corporate corruption.
I want them to usher-in a stock market crash of never-before seen proportions.
I want bread lines. No, better yet, I want no bread lines.
I want them to to take away the rights of workers to organize.
I want them to shackle women to operating tables and force them to give birth.
I want them to rape social security.

Let's have smog-filled air that doesn't life when we heat up in late morning.
Let's see how high we can get the oceans to rise.
Let's shakedown the elderly and have them eat cat food.
Let's ban Harry Potter from schools and libraries.
Let's cut funding for the arts and for children.
Let's create a million new terrorists.
Let's jail non-Christians.

And finally, when the bloody chunk of what's left of our nation crawls into the voting booth in 2004 (if the booth hasn't been napalmed), I hope we'll have learned our lesson. Americans do deserve what they will get. Today, I am ashamed of my country for her citizens' stupidity and greed.

Ouch! Now tell us how you really feel, "tedoll78".

The DU'ers are split about 50/50. Half are moving to Canada. The other half are gonna stay to fight the next civil war, which they claim starts next Tuesday or shortly thereafter.

They are currently asking around to see if any of their posters actually OWN any guns to contribute to the war effort.

OK, i actually made up that last part about the guns.

tedoll78 is about a demented POS isn't he? What will actually happen - unlike his predictions - is that America will begin healing now from the 8 long years of the Rats running the show. America's political system will begin to return to the form of a Constitutional Republic rather than a Soviet style state. Gotta love it.

Hopefully tedoll78 will be found hanging from a lightpole tomorrow.

Don't ever forget it. When I was in college we had just elected Ronald Reagan. I didn't know how good I had it back then, until the Nightmare That Was Clinton came along.

You seem to be a bit more aware than I was at your age. Good for you.

Personally, I'd like to see them go somewhere else - South Africa would be nice for them. Or Zim. Sudan? Brazil? Venezuela? Heck, the list of garden spots that are looking for folks like them is longer than I thought.

Now wait. That's going too far. While it's perfectly okay to enjoy seeing one's political opponents humbled at the ballot box, wishing them harm or injury goes way over the line. For my part, I wish only the best for tedoll78, and I hope all of us here can agree that, politically speaking, our enemies are ideas, not people.

And Lautenberg and Jeffords are irrelevant. New Joisy elected a senile, screechy stumblebum with a 'tude, a feckless fart has-been who won't do them a bit of good, who will wield no power, who might not even survive creeping dementia to see the end of his useless, irrelevant term.

And Jeffords has nowhere to go. No power, no friends, no influence. Just cold rain and gray skies in the morning.

Aw, you guys are just mean-spirited. I, on the other hand, intend to behave with the same dignity and decorum that my DU counterparts have shown, smiling through the tears, heads held high, hand shading their eyes as they seek bravely in the distance for a better America.

Kiss it, you socialist simps. I'll use my influence with Ashcroft to keep you b@stards out of the camps if you're nice...BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

Sorry.

mondale is speaking right now..but the radio station I'm listening to cut him off. he said something about "only 8% of precints are reporting."

Earlier today on NBC or something, a guy in FL said that he voted democrat 4 times before it finally stopped showing up repub on that touch screen system. The lawsuit/etc has been sown...

They're already to the left of Leon Trotsky, how much further can they go?

Just some thoughts.

NJ gets stuck with Lautenberg. HA

One reason seldom mentioned about why the Dems lost was they turned off many undecided voters and some hardcore Dems by their slimy antics and court cases during the 2000 election. I hope they do go crying to courts everywhere about this election, it will help us even more in 2004.

I would love to see the Greens and Libertarians pass the Dems by in party membership.

Now DU can lift their pre election ban on eveyrone who isn't a 100% Democrat kool aid drinker. Of course I hope these people they threw off were smart enough to have found other boards by now.

"Today, I am ashamed of my country for her citizens' stupidity and greed."

That last line is the most telling line, especially the word "greed". Replace the word "greed" with "aversion to having more money confiscated so that Democrat politicians can use it to buy the votes of their main constituents, society's parasites", and you get a clearer understanding of what this pathetic little Democrat mouse really means.

Of course, the whole screed is just the same old stale, boilerplate Democrat claptrap to begin with...

Schadenfreude is not becoming.

But I sense trouble here. At this point it looks like the Right kind of (election) night, for the large part -- but take a look at the lessons not learned. This guy doesn't trust the Dems' leadership -- right enough, but for the wrong reason. His solution is more of what brought the Clintonistas to power -- and what is sinking them and the party they subverted tonight.

Perhaps we won over them tonight, but we have not won them over. They are still there opposed, they still hold their power base: their pet teachers' unions, their union slaves, their plantation blacks, their repressive and intolerant universities, the liberal media, the corrupt judiciary, the bloated self-serving bureaucracies. They have not learned honesty, ethics, honor, or morality (and that's just for starters). They still live in a universe redefined to such an extreme degree that whatever "is" means, it does not mean "is."

It seems we have won a battle and that's cause for rejoicing. But I see no plan for winning the war, heck, I see no plan that even indicates that there's a war, and that is cause for grave concern because that's the way to defeat. We have to retake, and work to retake, the cultural ground we've lost -- no, not lost but ceded.

If we fail to do that, to retake the lost ground, every victory will ultimately be nothing more than a brief stop along the road down to totalitarian tyranny.

Where do I turn for some representation?

Oh,come *on*... Surely we can convince him to vote Green next time... On the other hand:

Maybe Independent? Who cares, Im moving to Canada.

That sounds good too, except these whining twits never keep their promises. Did even *ONE* of the Holeywood yammerers who promised to leave, actually drag their sorry plotts out of the country? Seems like Alec Baldwin and Floozie O'Dykell and Blahblah Streisand and, and and and, who *promised* to leave when Bush got elected, are still hanging around stinking the country up.

But as long as they keep whining and threatening, there is still hope of their leaving...

Let's shakedown the elderly and have them eat cat food.

I thought dog food was the cusine of choice for the poverty stricken senior. Have they up graded? The quality of fish found in cat food is much higher. I quess they wanted the extra Omega 3 fatty acids.

They actually had a thread about buying guns back when Bush first took office. One genius claimed that if dems buy guns, then Republicans will be the ones pushing gun control.

I spoke up and said , "Nope, we'll just say 'welcome aboard' on that issue, nice to see that we won you over'"

Then I got banned :)

Some special Missouri Schadenfreude moments:

The Widder is going to be back at the MO state fair's judging table when they roll out the pies and jams.

Missouri Republicans took the state house - something they haven't done for decades.

Jim Talent lost Kansas City, St. Louis City, *and* St. Louis County - but still took the state of Missouri. Go outstate voters!

The funny thing is that there are some pro-gun-rights regulars in the DUmpster, trying to tell the rest that if the Democrats hadn't saddled themselves with gun-grabbers then Al Gore would be President.

Of course, they get shouted down, and occasionally banned.

In some exit poll that was done in Joisey, a large number of people who voted for the Laut said that keeping the Senate in slimy demonRat hands was a big motivation. HAHAHAHAHA! So now they're stuck with a drooling, senile old crank -- and he's not in the majority!

Yep, this was definitely a real schadenfreude night! :D

I can hardly wait for Lautenberg to 'reclaim' his seniority. Like Hillary's going to make way for his senile butt? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Since the Pubs have regained the Senate, why doesn't Lautenberg just end the charade now, and let McGreevey appoint his successor.

That would be sweet, because that would add additional fire to the LA runoff.

You know, I went over to DU to relish in a little schadenfreude myself. After reading their threads, my initial sadistic glee was replaced by pity.

Don't get me wrong. I don't feel bad for them because their people lost. I will never feel bad about a socialist losing an election.

I guess I was struck at how miserable with life they all seemed. Anger, bitterness and fear seemed to permeate from every post. It seems like the vast majority of them are dyed-in-the-wool conspiracy theorists. Their worldview is so naive as to be childlike. I get the impression that many of them are seriously damaged people who take refuge in blind hatred of Bush. (At least Freepers hate Clinton for his complete lack of morals and the crimes he committed. The DU crowd seems to despise Bush just because of what he believes in.)

So I can't take much enjoyment from their misery. As a Christian, I sense that these are seriously lost souls who need help instead of ridicule. I'm happy that their candidates lost, but sad that some people are doomed to live misguided lives filled with such bitterness. I'll pray for them.

Democrats show they're incompetent to lead and have lost the confidence of the people. And their solution? To wish punishment on innocent citizens. To hope the elderly will go hungry. What jerks. They sound like haters having an ugly tantrum. Here's the bad news, you jerky democrats, we'll care about the weakest among us, and we'll help them. Not by making them dependent fools who will vote for us, but assisting them with becoming productive citizens. Eat your heart out:

When our nation suffers for its unwise choices today, I will smile and simply say, "I told you so." I want them to induce massive poverty. I want them to allow corporate corruption. I want them to usher-in a stock market crash of never-before seen proportions. I want bread lines. No, better yet, I want no bread lines. I want them to take away the rights of workers to organize. I want them to shackle women to operating tables and force them to give birth. I want them to rape social security. Let's have smog-filled air that doesn't life when we heat up in late morning. Let's see how high we can get the oceans to rise. Let's shakedown the elderly and have them eat cat food.

re post#30: One of the finest posts I've seen on this site. Honestly. We won the battle, but we haven't won the war.

"Perhaps we won over them tonight, but we have not won them over. They are still there opposed, they still hold their power base: their pet teachers' unions, their union slaves, their plantation blacks, their repressive and intolerant universities, the liberal media, the corrupt judiciary, the bloated self-serving bureaucracies.
