DUmmies Slam St. Patrick's Day

Who doesn't like St. Patrick's Day? I mean it is a lot of fun. Okay, the historical St. Patrick from what I understand was actually a Gallo-Roman which means he was more Italian than Irish but that doesn't interfere with the fun. I mean how Irish is corned beef which was actually picked up from Jewish delis since there is a dearth of traditional Irish food. Come to think of it, what exactly is traditional Irish food? I once asked an authentic Irishman (from Ireland) about this and he told me that over there food is nothing more than a dietary supplement between rounds of beer. It seems that good food is NOT a priority anywhere in the British Isles. And don't get me started on Shepherd's pie...yuch! Okay, so Irish food sucks but what kind of mentality is it that condemns St. Patrick's Day? Okay, I'll tell you what kind of mentality, a DUmmie mentality as you can see in this THREAD, "Everyone gearing up for St. Douchebag's Day?" So let us now watch the DUmmies get downbeat on St. Patrick's Day in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, who won't be posting in Emerald Isle green because it is hard on the eyes, is in the [brackets]:



Everyone gearing up for St. Douchebag's Day?

[Posted the DUmmie Douchebag.]

St. "Look At Me!.. I'm 18 and Drunk off my Ass!" Day. I hate it.

[Posted the bitter DUmmie from deep within the confines of his dark, dank, joyless basement.]

A big part of St. Patrick’s Day is having white people feel particularly upset at the oppression of their ancestors that has in no way trickled down to them. If you find yourself talking with a white person who tells you about how their great grandfather was oppressed by both the English and the Americans, it is strongly recommended that you lend a sympathetic ear and shake your head in disbelief. It is never considered acceptable to say: “but you’re white now, so what’s the problem?”

[You're a DUmmie now and that IS your problem.]

I'm no saint. Just a run-of-the-mill douchebag.

[A leprechaun Kewpie Doll to you for that moment of accurate self-realization.]

I love the fact that I can stock up on corned beef wicked cheap.

[Hmmmm... Gotta check up on my coupons. I just got a years supply of BO sticks FREE via coupons so why not also stock up on that "Irish fare" of corned beef?

nothing like institutionalized drunken douchbaggery.

[aka DUmmieland.]

I just think it sucks that I can't go out on my birthday without slipping in teenage vomit.

[So stop by Bukowski's and slip in middle-age vomit.]

But I am just sickened by the idiots (Irish and otherwise) who use it as an excuse to spend the entire day drunk.

[Then you must like Pied Piper Pitt who uses NO excuse to spend EVERY day drunk.]

I Enjoy Drinking To Excess On St Patrick's Day

[As well as on the other 364 days.]

Unfreakinbelievable!

Lets see, 'my people' where oppressed and slaughtered by the Russians/Bolsheviks, Poles, Germans, Austrians, Arabs and just about anybody ELSE wherever else we might have been since time immemorial but that has in NO WAY trickled down to me because I'm white.

Have I got this right?

AND

I spend St. Patty's day feeling particularly upset about it.

What planet is this 'person' from?

Let me see, is that in contrast to people who's grandparents or great great GREAT grandparents where 'oppressed' by the English and Americans and who HAVE had that oppression supposedly 'trickled' down to them.

People who THEN love to wear it on their sleeves every single solidarity day AND walk around with a HUGE chip on their shoulder because of it? People who feel that the entire fucking world owes them something for nothing? The same people who consistantly turn away from education and instead, turn on themselves and prey upon their OWN young people with guns drawn and a rock pipe in their hands?

Oh wait, these MUST be yet more symptoms of the oppression THEY feel each and EVERY single day. The oppression their great great great grandparents lived with at the hands of those dispicable Britsh and American overlords and the Jews who control them to this very day.

I see. I get it now.

And here I've always thought that St. Patty's day was just a good excuse to get drunk.

Is that you troglaman?

This thread just emphasizes the streak of Puritanism, snobbery and judgementalism that underlies the "liberal" politcs of many DUmmies.

Too, most DUmmies will not be invited to St Patrick's Day parties. Secretly, they really want to slip in "teenage vomit" and pass out on the lawn; they cover up their hurt feelings by sneering at party-going "douchebags".

Me? I'm 3/4 Irish but I'm too old to spend the day getting drunk in a noisy bar. However, the wife and I are going to a good Irish pub
for dinner, a couple of beers and some Irish music. Home by eleven.

Everyday is Douchebag Day at the Democratic Underground. They don't need an Irish saint's birthday strut their douchebaginess. Their thoughts, their words, their actions reek of the douchebag. In fact, many DUmmies have advanced from being douchebags to being douche nozzles.

Brought to you by the same people that think weed should be free if not mandatory, and are totally unconcerned about people driving around once they are completely toked up, because after all, it's just a good time and couldn't possibly affect their judgement.

Excessive use of intoxicants does go a long way to explaining their alleged thought processes, though.

Well, it is a bit of a shame that St. Patrick's Day has become even more secularized than Christmas, going from a celebration of Patrick's amazing, Godly life into just an excuse to get plastered.

OK. Let's clear a few things up.

I spent yesterday drinking and jumping around to a band that had a flute player, guitar (and other various, strange stringed Celtic instruments), percussion (mostly hand drums, bells, shakers and triangles), an incredible fiddle player and a singer. It was friggin great. Satan had a hand in the matter but it was worth it.

And what were you doing? Pondering the secularization of St. Patrick's Day? Judging by the above comments it looked like you all had a really, really wild time. An intellectual orgy. Sorry I missed it.

Trogs,

Were you wearing green and carrying a shillelagh during your St. Patrickpalooza? I trust you didn't stay sober.

I did, but I had to drive.

St. Patrick's Day has never been a religious holiday. It used to be a celebration of Irish culture and heritage. But it's gradually morphed into a pagan rite of Spring, a celebration of the end of winter and an excuse to get drunk in public. It's Dionysius with a shamrock.

"St. Patrick's Day has never been a religious holiday." elrond

And yet it's called "St. Patrick's Day" which, admittedly, makes it a poor sister to religious holidays like Christmas and Easter, but a religious holiday all the same. Valentine's day falls in the same category. Saints. Catholic Saints (I've heard they LOVE Valentine's Day for unmentionable reasons).

See, elrond? adam goes to church on St. Patrick's Day. He celebrates it as God would want him to...a celebration of "Patrick's amazing, Godly life".

adam's had experience with snakes, after all. They talk to him.

troglaman,

Snakes? Do you have a problem with snakes? Do they talk to you at night? Do they slither up your leg after a long bout of drinking?

I view it in that perspective, yes, Patrick loved God and loved his fellow man, and did a lot to help the people of Ireland by strengthening the Christian faith there at a time when the pagan Druids controlled much of it. And, yes, I helped run the youth ministry program at a church I volunteer at, like I do every Wednesday.

"adam's had experience with snakes, after all. They talk to him."
Wait, what? Is that your attempt at humor, Troggy? Lame, as usual.

Not me, troglaman. No.

"He is described as "the serpent" (Gen. 3:1). Since Revelation 12:9 speaks of "that ancient serpent called the devil or Satan, who leads the whole world astray" we are no doubt right in identifying him as Satan, the ancient adversary of God."

"You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman (Eve). "For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."

There you go. A talking snake. Adam became conflicted, if you know what I mean. Maybe because he had a hungry snake of his own.

Really? So you go to church and worship a guy that ridded Ireland of snakes, every St Pat's Day...and volunteer at the "the youth ministry program".

Now adam, since most of us know what "serpents" and "snakes" represent...do you think it wise to notify us you "volunteer at the the youth ministry program"?

You work for the Catholics, right?

Enough said.

Not enough said...sorry I, troglaman, looked again at adam's statement and changed my mind.

This statement: "Patrick loved God and loved his fellow man, and did a lot to help the people of Ireland by strengthening the Christian faith there at a time when the pagan Druids controlled much of it."

This belongs in a song. Don't you think? The Glorious Destruction of the Pagan Druids.

adam assumes we are all aware of Patrick's dominance and destruction of the pagan Druids. Then he continues to assume we all believe this all to be, without doubt, God's work. He's wrong.

Continue your story, adam. Dare you. A few historical facts to back you up, perhaps? Anything to make firm the argument that you're clued into the Lord's reasons for Romans dominating pagan Druids?

I look forward to your pious reply.

The Roman empire, not Christians, destroyed the power of the druids in England and Gaul. The Romans considered the druids to be "non-Roman" barbarians, the emperor Claudius finally banning their religion.

The Roman Empire never conquered Ireland (and never tried to do so). The Christian conversion of Ireland (led by St. Patrick) proceeded with minimal turmoil because druidism was already in decline during the 4th and 5th centuries.

Was the destruction of the Druids God's work, kat?

Though you'll probably think me cynical, thanks for your educated reply up there. I learned stuff while trying to look up shit that would prove you wrong and an imbecile (troglaman's mission in life).

Believe it or not, I love it when that happens.

No, as noted, it was mainly the Romans' work; they broke the power of the druids in England and Gaul long before Christianity became widespread in western Europe. Druidism was already marginalized when St. Patrick came to Erin to convert the Irish.

Of course, God does work in mysterious ways.

So the "marginalized" and broken "power of the druids" had nothing to do with God. Just the Romans. Do I have that right?
