The new meme
Posted by: McQ on Friday, October 10, 2008

The Republicans are crazy (or angry or nuts or ....). Joe Klein carries the water:
Better to Be...

"a guy of the street" than a guy of the gutter.

But seriously, folks, I'm beginning to worry about the level of craziness on the Republican side, the over-the-top, stampede-the-crowd statements by everyone from McCain on down, the vehemence of the crowds that McCain and Palin are drawing with people shouting "Kill him" and "He's a terrorist" and "Off with his head."
Joe - ever seen a Code Pink demonstation?

Yes, those evil Repugs might trying to bomb people. Maybe they will blow up their girlfriends. Maybe they will try to blow up peace officers and their dates.


Or is it called laying the justification for a first strike?

Hmmm... Wasn’t it lefties that openly discussed secession after Bush won in ’04?

And it isn’t Republicans who dress their children in little uniforms to sing songs about their dear leader, aka The Annointed One.

FWIW, Orson Scott Card has written a novel called Empire about a US civil war that occurs when the left, fearful of a coup by the right, attempts to take over parts of the United States. Card posits that the "war" isn’t regional like the Civil War, but rather ideological. He also warns that the war starts, not necessarily because one side or the other makes a first move out of malice, but rather as a matter of self-defense because it fears that the other side will make the first move.

I see quite a few posts here and there around the conservative bloggosphere about people stockpiling weapons and ammo. I hope that this is mere isolated mutterings, but I fear the future. No matter who wins, the other side will have near-certain conviction that the election was stolen. When you can’t count on the democratic process to work, what else is left but force?

Its pre-emptive.

What was acceptable or at least tolerable behavior from the Left for the past 8 years will now be deemed unacceptable now.

Be sure if anyone gets in the face of Obama’s secretary of state waving blood covered hands, not only will they have their face ground into the floor in a millesecond, they won’t be heard from for a very long time.

Because it’s Republications trying to steal this thing, right?

stockpiling weapons and ammo = self defense

We saw compassionate Leftism in action at Waco, TX. Plus Hugo Chavez’s militias. Or the fantasy, wack-off novels and movies about Bush’s assassination.

Bush = Hindenburg.

The Liberals have spent the last 8 years projecting a message while those on the right have spent the last 8 years justifying or defending things to primarily to the proverbial choir.

They are not about to let that roll be reversed. The villification of Republicans, the Right, Conservatives, Free Markets or whatever you want to call it will continue and it be televised.

Two points to be made here:

One: if Democrats are so happy that Republicans are "going crazy" and that this will somehow cost us the election, shouldn’t they just stand back and let it happen? There’s something valid about the old adage that if your opponent is killing himself not to step in and make it murder but allow the suicide to continue; thus, it always makes me wonder why if party No. 2 is doing things to hurt themselves, why should party No. 1 complain? Yep, party No. 1 only complains if they are worried that party No. 2 is NOT killing themselves, but is really hurting party No. 1. When Democrats say that McCain is this, or McCain is that, I always say, "thou protesteth too much."

Two: The Dems have run eight years of the "Bush is a moron, Bush is stupid, Bush is Hitler, Bush is worse than Hitler" meme, and maybe we should just pin it right back on them. If Little Barry pulls this thing off, we should use the next four years to punish him and his gang of minions and sheep like they punished us. Did you vote for Obama’s tax raise? Obama killed jobs! The stock market? That’s Obama’s fault! Obama surrendered to al Qaeda! Obama is Bin Laden’s good buddy! First Ayers, then Bin Laden! Let’s photoshop a picture of "Barry and Hugo" meeting in Venezuela!

I know someone will say this is all childish, but the left did it to Bush and America for eight years and now their inexperienced little sc*mbag who may wind up stealing this election needs to get a taste of their own medicine.

the vehemence of the crowds that McCain and Palin are drawing with people shouting "Kill him" and "He’s a terrorist" and "Off with his head."

I would think this would be such a big news story that Fox News would carry it.

But I haven’t heard a peep about it.

And he (JK) doesn’t provide any link to support this charge.

"Off with his head"?
Seriously - are you from England?

We don’t DO off with his head here, and we never have.

So I’m finding it unlikely the ’mindless’ ’republican’ (but I repeat myself from a leftwinger’s perspective) crowd has ever yelled
"off with his head".

Jonathan Martin at Politico has a similar story:

The comments above show a similar kind of vehemance and demonization of the opponent. But that level of anger on the right, or on the left after Bush won, isn’t the norm. Blogs by political junkies do not reflect the mentality or reaction of most Americans, be they conservative or liberal. BDS (is that the acronym used to describe the left’s hatred of Bush) will be replaced by ODS from the right. Plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose.

Obama is the Democratic Reagan, running at a time when the country is convinced that we’re going in the wrong direction and need a change. And if he wins and you don’t like it, well, just as the Democrats who were disappointed or angry in 2000 now may finally get satisfaction, there will be a day soon when it’s the Republicans on top.

Disappointed doesn’t mean I’m going to start calling the man a chimp and making
all kinds of unfounded accusations about him (the founded ones have enough merit on their own).
Oh, but if I did THAT then it would surely be only because I’m a racist.

Make no mistake Erb, anyone who critizes Obama will be a ’closet racist’ or just a racist.

Political Correctness is about to really run completely amok.
As for Obama, I’ll actually pray he does a good job, because once he’s in there he’s the President, whether I like him at the moment or not.

My gut says we’re looking at the warm up for a Jimmy Carter Redux at the worst possible time for the world, but don’t feel bad, like every other natural and man-made disaster for the last 8 years, it’ll all be George W. Bush’s fault.

if obama wins i’ll just think of his term like a near death experience for the entire country. It will awaken us to what is truly important and hopefully get us back on the right track for a while.

lets just hope he doesn’t screw things up too bad in 4 years.

Here is what we can expect in Obama-Reagan’s Morning in America, Sitting on a Shining City on a Hill.

It doesn’t matter who you vote for, as long it’s for Obama. Vote early, vote often. Don’t worry about using your real name, just vote again again and again. Unless you are racist/Republican.

Supposedly someone hollered out "kill him" when Palin was talking about AYERS.


Is it on tape? Where?

And if it is, why assume whoever it was was talking about Obama when Palin was talking about Ayers?

As for stock-piling weapons and ammo... I’ve felt the urge over the last several years from time to time, so it’s not something about Obama. It’s just the idea that if I don’t buy a gun or two *now*, will I be able to later? When the oceans rise or the bird flu kills 80% of people, or when the aliens come or the state sized meteor falls to earth... when they have a bad accident at the National Labs on the other side of the ridge... or even just when someone manages to get a law through making it hard or impossible to buy them.

Now, I *haven’t*, so I suppose that’s proof that I’m not really, for real, worried about those things. It’s on my to-do list but not at the top.

Obama says he’s pro- 2nd Amendment and that it’s clearly an individual right.

But a person really does have to wonder if that word means what he thinks that it means.

"He’s a terrorist"
Just a tense problem, Ayers was a terrorist.
"Kill him"
Was this in reference to Ayers? The death penalty is justified for those who commit treason.
"Off with his head."
Was this in reference to Ayers? A bit old school for my taste but see above.

Then it should be simple enough to post a link to the video. All I said was that I hadn’t seen it, and JK didn’t provide any evidence of it.

I know I’ve seen plenty of video’s of the dastardly behavior of far left kooks.

I don’t equate the actions of fringe elements with the party they choose to identify themselves with, unless, of course, the party chooses to embrace them.

I think it’s fair to say that Ayers is a terrorist, even if he hasn’t tried to blow anything up lately.

Obama might refer to Ayers’s actions as despicable acts, but does Ayers think they were despicable? If Ayers himself doesn’t repudiate his youthful enthusiasms, how does he get to disavow the title?

Obama is the Democratic Reagan, running at a time when the country is convinced that we’re going in the wrong direction and need a change.
That might be the view within your fevor swamp, but if that was true Obama would go on to win in a landslide, which will not happen. And he would then go on to win a second term in a landslide, which won’t happen either.

Obama’s a weak candidate; a man of little experience and few (any?) accomplishments, and little character.
Does it Matter Who Wins?
In a way, the right will win either way.

If Obama looses, it is a serious defeat for the Democrats, and further the country will benifit.

On the other hand, an Obama victory will lead to an even greater defeat of the Democrats in 2010 and 2012. However, in the meantime Obama will do considerable damage to America.
