Demoralized KOmmie Gives Up All Hope

This hasn't exactly been a good week for the Left. Apparently their own savior, the Obamassiah has betrayed them. No, not on his broken promise about accepting public financing of his campaign. Most (but not all) of them are fine with that because it means more money (they think) with which to destroy the EVIL Republicans. No, they feel betrayed over Obama NOT filibustering the FISA bill as urged by MoveOn. This KOmmie THREAD, "Take One Last Look," posted by KOmmie One Pissed Off Liberal is a reflection of that sense of betrayal. Although the betrayal by their beloved Barack Obama on the FISA bill is not specifically cited as their reason for their gloom, it is that plus the general sense that the Obamassiah is a flawed candidated who might not (GASP!) win in November. The solution? According to One Pissed Off Liberal it would be some sort of Bolshevik Revolution to purge our EVIL capitalist system of its many faults. So let us now watch the KOmmies engage in doom and gloom in Bolshevik Red while the the commentary of your humble correspondent, noting how quickly the sense of betrayal has set in among the Obama acolytes, is in the [barackets]:


Take One Last Look

[We are the dead.]

Some of you who were around when I first started posting at DailyKos a little over two years ago may remember the ‘OPOL flame wars’ as kos himself put it. Many of my ideas provoked great animosity in the dkos community. I was called every name under the sun, was threatened with banishment, and was the object of great wailing and gnashing of teeth. I was bitterly and enthusiastically criticized for saying things like:

[The saga of the Martyrdom of One Pissed Off Liberal as presented by One Pissed Off Liberal.]

The 2000 and 2004 elections were stolen.
The war on terrorism is a bogus invention meant to justify war profiteering.
The rise of the neocons amounted to a fascist coup.
The democrats enabled the neocons and in some cases were complicit in their crimes.
Our political system is broken and corrupt to the bone.
Bush and Cheney should be impeached.
The Bush administration committed war crimes.
Our government is enslaved to the evil of the Military Industrial Complex.
The American dream is just another lie.
Our government has no intentions of ever leaving Iraq.
We are running out of time to save the humans.

[One Pissed Off Liberal presents his/her impeccable moonbat credentials.]

After all that has transpired over the past two years, these ideas seem much less inflammatory today. A casual reading of DailyKos these days suggests that most kossacks now agree with many if not all of these statements. The hideous nature of our present reality can no longer be denied by thinking people. The horror we face has begun to sink in.

[It can no longer denied by thinking people that the rest of Kommieland is now as looney as you.]

The propaganda machine we are subjected to from cradle to grave in this country is a powerful force. We are taught that this is ‘the greatest country in the world’, though we are not told why. American exceptionalism is drilled into us incessantly until it becomes one of those core beliefs not subject to deep questioning. It is hard for us to face that we are NOT the good guys, NOT the land of the free and the home of the brave, not really even a democracy, just a pretend one. The real power in America is not the vote - it’s the buck.

[Good news! You can bypass that propaganda machine by merely going to NPR, PBS, the major networks, and most newspapers. Oh, and also almost all classrooms where liberal teachers and professors overwhelmingly prevail.]

In my view the time for action is nearly past. If we don’t act decisively and soon, all will be lost. More and better Democrats is not the answer, and the reason is because the system is so corrupt that it taints anyone who gets near it. What we so desperately need (IMHO) is radical reform of our government and political system. A good start would be mandated public financing, outlawing all but the most benign lobbying, and to make lying in the course of one’s official duties as an elected or appointed official, a major crime with severe penalties.

[At least our beloved Obama is accepting public financing as he promised. Right? He wouldn't lie to us because of both his sterling character and the fact that it would be a major crime with severe penalties in the Bolshevik utopia you envision.]

If we fail to do those things at a minimum, we will all die in due course of planetary neglect. The only question that remains, it seems to me, is do we give up or fight back?

[The not so subtle call for Bolshevik Revolution.]

As for me, I’d rather die fighting back than live under tyranny and just watch passively as life on earth is extinguished by a bunch of venal idiots.

[Posted One Pissed Off Liberal from behind a barricade of empty pizza cartons in Mommy's basement. And now for more gloom and doom from other KOmmies...]

Tips for the Resistance?

[Use reinforced cardboard in those pizza carton barricades.]

I think maybe the best hope is a major pestilence.

[That only wipes out the EVIL Republicans.]

I've always thought religion to be the ultimate statement on the worthlessness of this life.

[Posted the KOmmie theologian.]

Short term greed will not help us to survive. Indeed just the opposite. We are like fetuses trying to kill our mother.

[KOmmies only approve the latter if it is the other way around.]

We'll be gone, but the cockroaches will still be here. Damn that is just so sad, why can't we see what we're doing?

[Gimme a can of Raid! I don't want those cockroaches to get off the hook.]

We can change it... but we must absolutely elect Obama, whether or not we love everything he does. I disagree totally on FISA, but if people think they can trust Grandpa McCain, then they are wrong.

[It's going to be FUn to watch KOmmie victoria2dc on Election Day, November 5.]

The only bright light I see is all of the harm done by buch/cheney. Maybe they have created such a mess that we will have to revamp the entire system just to stay alive.

[Translation: Forget Democracy. We need Bolshevik Revolution.]

Sometimes, I wish I could disown America. That's my harsh but honest feeling. Activism has been reduced to blind faith in a political party and particular politician. We need a big change, not a wimpy incremental one.

[Not wimpy incremental changes like elections. We need Bolshevik Revolution NOW!!!]

Despite all signs to the contrary, I will hold fast to my belief in the possibility of enlightenment and progress. What else could I do?

[Blindly trust our beloved Obamassiah.]

The only circumstance under which I would support "Mandated Public Financing" is the regulation of RightWing Talk Radio.

[Ban the First Amendment!!!]

Better to invest my energy in helping to midwife a new democracy than holding vigil over a dying one.

[Democratic People's Republic of Amerika.]

It is my view that we do not have sufficient evidence that George W. Bush won Ohio, and therefore the presidency due to too many odd incidences that happened there.

[Bev Harris is just $10 away from making John Kerry president.]

I still have very deep doubts that 200, 000 employees of Blackwater are enough logistically to stage a coup of a country the size of the US. Cause mischief, yes, be successful, no. Not that I am not concerned about the trend, but the vast majority of them are also tied up in Iraq. And it only takes one battalion commander remembering his oath to the Constitution of 82 Airborne Infantry or Old Guard in DC to mess their day up pretty badly.

[Too bad it's June now so you already missed out on your Seven Days In May scenario.]

Capitalism is the weak link in democracy.

[Time to replace it with "Socialism" (Communism).]

Only seven months before they're gone from office, Democrats voluntarily brought the FISA monster back from the dead and gave away more of our Fourth Amendment right to privacy... and increased the dictatorial power of the two most despised "leaders" this country has ever known. Don't know about you, but I feel betrayed on every level.

[You're going to feel even worse on Election Day, the Fifth of November.]

We have too much geography and too many people now for a tipping point to generate even passive resistance or organized passive action. So here we are, venting, learning, and racking our brains for a way to take our country back, or at least its heart and soul. I hope somebody has some good ideas.

[Don't forget those empty pizza carton barricades with the reinforced cardboard.]

To be fair to Obama, I'm sure he'll win the election. He'll be the first black president, and that's awesome. It's too bad that he falls short on his principles, in my opinion at least.

[See you on Election Day, the Fifth of November.]

Obama is willing to defend himself and his ideas.
Kerry let himself be swiftboated. Obama will not.

[Obama just swiftboats himself in the foot.]

I fear we may be too late...to save the planet OR change anyone's opinion about what the priorities are.

[Hello Mr. Upbeat!]

The fascists want our money and we keep giving it to them. Can't we get creative about this?

[Not One Damn Dime Day.]

A lot of people love your diaries. I get that. That's OK. Frankly, they leave me flat. They're just a lot of emotional hemophelia. The tourniquet is action, and as far as I can tell, you haven't used that tourniquet yet.

[Use the tourniquet to stem the flow of the pizza sauce.]

As for me, I’d rather die fighting back than live under tyranny and just watch passively as life on earth is extinguished by a bunch of venal idiots.

[Don't let that pizza carton barricade in Mommy's basement collapse on top of you.]

What's the difference between an Obama leftist and a doomsday cultist? About all I can figure is the cultist is kind enough to leave the rest of us alone in their nihilistic pursuit.

I'm bummed there was no "truth to power" reference. On that note there wasn't one reference to "V". No wait... that was the silly '80s alien mini-series. Wait, I'm wrong again. It was "V" but "for Vendetta" was added. I never saw the movie myself. Were there lizard faces under the Frenchie mask with the "Boston Blackie" moustache? Was Padme a lizard too?

Just exactly what is it we're delusional about, elrond? Obama's apparent fold? He did fold on FISA. That he's a cutthroat politician? Big duh and Praise the Lord. Obama's trying to finesse this. He obliquely refers to what he'll do to correct these wrongs 'as president'. Hmmm.

What's so dumb about your post is that you gloat about Obama's constituency giving him shit. I'll guarantee you right now that even if elected, he will continue to take shit from the progressive left. It's simply fact. What's the alternative? Blind obedience? You guys have already proven the "sheep strategy" hasn't been real effective (although I, troglaman, have hunted wild sheep and respect their herding instincts).

Libs don't take loyalty oaths. Everyone's fair game. But if you think this is a sign Obama's about to be deserted by those of us who are pissed off at him, you're way way wrong. Like always.

So, "I'll go along with what I think is illegal as long as I get elected. Then I'll fix it later." Uh huh, politicions ALWAYS follow through with that one.

"You guys have already proven the "sheep strategy" hasn't been real effective" -troglman

Ah ah ah... you're falling into the fallacy of popularity with that one. Too many examples of the opposite to note here. Come on troglman! You can do better than that... can't you?

T-man,

Don't forget Obama's weasel-like 180 on campaign financing. Like any Chicago machine pol, he went for the big bucks

But you're right about one thing, no matter what truths come out about the depths of B.O.'s cynicism and opportunism, no matter how much shit he dumps on them, the progressives will dutifully flip the "D" lever (and if they're from Chicago, they do it more than once). And if that's not blind obedience, I don't know what is.

Fallacy of Popularity.

Respectfully elrond, I don't think the country will believe Obama is cynical. Opportunism will not be seen as a bad trait for a politician since they're all fuckin opportunists. And America, thank God, is about to wake up. No thanks to you.

There seems to be this overall denial of how bad you and your ilk have fucked up. Sad but true. You've lost credibility. And you are determined to lose more. It's called 'pathos'.

I must've missed something. When did Blackwater become bigger than GM?

"...Capitalism IS democracy, you idiot! ..." -ray

Uh, no, you idiot! Democracy (a political system) is mob rule. Capitalism (an economic system) is the only economic system that enables individuals to sustain their own lives through the unfettered use of their mind.

We have neither pure democracy nor pure capitalism in this nation. We have a perverted melding of the two with creeping socialism thrown in to muddy the thinking of the mob.

The problem in this nation is that economic power was suborned to political power by ratification of the 16th Amendment. That ceded economic power to the politicians and made us all slaves to the politicians. It enables politicians to dictate how much of our hard-earned property and wealth we will be permitted to keep.

Worth renting or DVR'ing on HBO. Not a bad movie, although it blurred the historical difference between British (where the movie was set) and American governments.

The best line was something along the lines of: "People are afraid of the government when the government should be afraid of the people."

'V for Vendetta' sucked donkey balls. The Wachowskis completely bastardized the Alan Moore comic book on which it was based (Moore himself wanted nothing to do with the film, when he discovered just how badly they were going to pervert his work) to turn it into a crappy liberal propaganda film in which history has apparently been rewritten so that Guy Fawkes was actually a hero who wanted to blow up Parliament in the middle of the night as a harmless political statement (There's a reason why in real life, many Brits celebrate Guy Fawkes day by burning him in effigy), and in which the bad guys are of course those evil conservative Christians. Plus, it was just plain boring, I nodded off a couple times watching it in the theaters. The only part I liked was the 'Benny Hill' scene, that was funny, the rest was crap.
Oh and jack bauer, I remembered that, too. Hopefully, in accordance with that day and the popularity of that crappy movie among libs, they'll be so busy protesting and running around in their mass- produced, made- in- China Guy Fawkes costumes that they'll completely forget to vote until it's too late!

Here to help you. But please let me apologise. I thought you wanted to have a reasoned argument. That's one of those things wherein you try to avoid logical fallacies instead of use them as a crutch to hoist up a flawed point of view.

Since there are many logical fallacies I wanted to be specific with the one you were using to weaken your argument. I misunderstood you in that I though you wanted to strenghten your argument.

My mistake. Carry on.

They called the book a "graphic novel" instead of a comic book in the bonus features on the DVD.

The bloviating they did about what a great job they'd done on the movie and what a great story it was were only two of the multiple clues that the makers and actors totally missed the point of the story.

When one of them trotted out the tired old bullshit line: "One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter" I about threw my shoe through the TV tube. That sealed the fact the actors and director just didn't get the reality of Evil or the concepts of Justice and Freedom.

Watching it with a friend did give me the opportunity for a good discussion about the Constitution and how Congress sucks donkey balls as you put it though. From that perspective, I enjoyed it.
