Ryan-Rand Destroyed: Linked to Satanism

“…Yep, just stay the course.  That was the Republican definition of leadership for the last five years before President Obama. 

Well, at least big corporations, powerful companies, are based here and they’re American:  good, loyal Americans.  We should be glad, and rest a little better, because they’re on our side… 
…Actually, corporations are not citizens, my friends.  They know no country affiliation at all:  like tribes in Africa, and many indigenous Native Americans.  They swear no oath to the flag; they choose where to live based on expediency and profitability.  And of course they can spend unlimited capital in any foreign currency to change our government for their own gain.  Their loyalty lies with their shareholders, as their stated goal is shareholder wealth maximization, and the top executives earn their salaries by meeting this goal.  If that means being multi-national and sending billions in money and jobs overseas, so be it.  As long as their profits are maximized.  That is their stated, published goal, and the basis upon which people invest in them.  So relax.  It’s all good.  Just start investing in corporations, get some skin in the game, and shut the fuck up….”

EXCERPT FROM Aldus Shrugged, a pro-Obama book, based on FACTS; not fantasy, as some anti-Obama writers love to do.  Here is my take on that lying allegedly-intellectual scumbag, Dinesh D’souzah.  (I call his character “Darvish Corsica”, a conflating of dinesh and Jerome Corsi):

“…He actually claims Obama’s anti-colonialism, and anti-American stances came from his father, who was a Kenyan Socialist or something like that.  And the publisher treats his word as gospel!’

That’s pretty much his standard blather.  He writes entire books, hypothesizing on the possibilities that our president is actually a loyal Kenyan Socialist – or is it a Kenyo-European anti-Colonialist, which is apparently the most insidious strain of the nasty hybrid Socialism and Fascism, or something like that.  Who the hell knows what he even thinks?  That’s the whole point:  it’s just crap from his own head, with no basis whatsoever.
‘He can write anything he wants and a small slice of people will slurp it up as truth!’  I said.  ‘He claims our president is bent on destroying America and all we stand for:  The strawman/bogeymen fantasy presented as fact.’

‘Yes,’ Dessa added, quickly, ‘I read a review of that garbage.  He uses the racial/cultural angle to claim that Obama’s father must have exerted a tremendous influence on his son, even though he was raised by his mom, and he only met his dad once after he was a baby.  But, by god, since his dad was a Muslim, and a Kenyan, somehow Barack himself MUST follow in his father’s path.  I swear, he subtly paints a picture of our president as a Kenyan witch doctor, or something.  He knows what he’s doing!  Dog-whistle Darvish…’
‘Dog-shit Darvish is more like it.  Dessa, if I ever write a book, you’ll know what my opinions are; I promise you that.  But there are opinions based on fact, and then there are opinions just based on belief, or from la-la land in your head.  So then just be honest and call it a novel or a comic book.  There’s tremendous responsibility that comes with free speech.  For an educated writer not to ensure people know the difference when he blathers, is disingenuous and irresponsible; and an insult to his readers.  He must think they’re all stupid.  I’m sick of people with a modicum of intelligence or power treating me like I’m stupid!’
‘Oh, I agree, and I believe that people like him cannot possibly know how petty and jealous they look, or they would be truly ashamed.’  Dessa added, ‘What’s Darvish’s next historical book going to be called:  Close Your Eyes and Imagine What If…?
‘There’s a lot of money in that garbage, but that doesn’t make it right or noble.’  I was sick of his whole act, a microcosm of the general discourse, and our acceptance of pure conjecture and pure lies.  He’s just another lying son of a bitch who knows better but acts as if he doesn’t.  Get in line behind your extremist friends, asshole, and make some more blood money off of conjecture, fear-mongering, and utterly dangerous disrespect.  You’ve found your niche market in this whole new anti-Obama industry, so go and drain some more blood.  It’s Capitalism.  Go pretend you offer something real.  Be a proud American, and remember, Americans have always supported their president when push came to shove - or at least they never delegitimized him - especially during wartime.  Do you not understand that?...”

Anglo Saxon

I saw "Mississippi Burning" the other day.

For the first time I noticed no less than four utterances of "Anglo Saxon", in reference to tradition, and keeping racial purity in their state, etc.

So...the klan says anglo saxon when they mean white.

What does Mitt Romney mean when he says it???

Fuck your dog whistle.  Dog whistles aren't so loud and clear.

Mitt is being racist over an amplified microphone.

Have you no sense of decency, sir? (F U Mitt)

Have you no sense of decency, sir?

"Senator…Have you no sense of decency?” was uttered, quite famously, by Joseph Welch to the infamous and draconian Senator Joseph McCarthy on June 9, 1954, in response to the Senator’s relentless quest for Commie bogeymen - this time in the Army - as McCarthy went after yet another innocent naïf.  It began the downward spiral of the very powerful, world-changing Senator, and led directly to his ostracizing, and indirectly to his death as a broken fool, a mere 3 years later.
Without spoiling my book's plot, I will add that McCarthy had a profound negative influence on my father’s career as well.  Also, I am Jewish.  Thus, I do not take hitler or mccarthy references lightly.
Of course, Allen West and Michelle Bachmann have been invoking this ugly specter for several years, ad nauseum; accomplishing nothing but dragging our general discourse into the toilet (the filthiest toilet in the world), and exposing themselves as dangerous vapid fools.
“Have you no sense of decency, sir?” was uttered this past week by Eric Fehrnstrom, Romney’s Senior Campaign Advisor, in reference to Harry Reid, who had the audacity and unmitigated galt to actually speculate that there might be a real reason Willard Mitt is hiding his financial information from us.  Fehrnstrom, apparently not a subtle man, also had the unmitigated galt to add that Harry Reid’s statement that Mitt paid no taxes for years,
“reminds me of the McCarthy hearings back in the 1950s”.
Oh really, Eric?  You really believe that...or are you just being a lying asshole...again.
Fehrnstrom has been with Romney a long time, (and thus has been a lying asshole a long time) and used the same tactics in helping him campaign for the governorship of Massachusetts. In that gubernatorial race, Romney talked out of both sides of his mouth and both sides of his ass, as he insisted in Utah that he was a Utah resident, and in Massachusetts, that he was a Massachusetts resident.  Romney even blamed the dustup on an inaccurate reporter, and a clerical error in the Utah tax office (for which the clerk who entered the returns (of course without error, as Romney was lying again) actually got into trouble at her job.  (Apparently, she was just another piece of middle class collateral damage left in Romney’s considerable damaging wake (quel dommage, Mitt!))
In this very familiar episode, Fehrnstrom was deflecting, while Romney was projecting accusations back on his accusers; all the while, retroactively amending his tax returns to reflect residency in Massachusetts.  In other words, he was hiding things, lying about what he was hiding, and retroactively changing the paper trail of history all the while.  Poor Mitt was portrayed as the victim, and the awful Boston Globe and Massachusetts Dems were the draconian, unreasonable villains.  Mitt even refused a request to turn over his tax returns with all financial info redacted, and only the residency designation readable.  Yep, he turned that very reasonable request down.   All this sound familiar?
I joke aplenty that the Republicans and the media use false equivalency because it is the only weapon they’ve got; and we really shouldn’t blame them for doing it.  It’s the only weapon they’ve got, and so they use it.  After all, it’s unAmurrkan to leave one in the chamber.
But seriously, I find this practice, and the practice of invoking mccarthy, so patently offensive as to nullify and degrade he who voices it.
Are we really supposed to see Romney as a victim in all of this?
In perhaps his most disingenuous and ridiculous projection to date, Romney told the friendly Fox News that Harry Reid should “put up or shut up.”  This is the classic Rovian projection, and thank god it doesn’t appear to be working and changing the simple mind the way it used to.
Projection is the classic GOP tactic, employed again and again, to the point of total predictability.  It easily answers the question why Republicans thought Democrats wanted us to lose in Iraq to make bush look bad.  Since that is the Republicans’ entire policy position against Obama now, they certainly jumped to the conclusion in the 2000s that their political opponents would also see their country fail completely before they saw the Republican president succeed.
In related news, while Romney thought June’s job report was “a kick in the gut” to the middle class, he now says that the July jobs report is “a hammer blow” to the middle class.
I often wonder what Romney would say about his own economic ideas, if he was not the most narcissistic and dishonest politician I have seen in my lifetime.
Of course, I often wonder what his party would say about President Obama if he was not black.  Of course none of the aforementioned traits are changing anytime soon.

Have you no sense of decency, mitt?
