Baffled Europeans? Nothing new there ...
Posted by: McQ on Tuesday, January 13, 2009

Some things never change:
The bitter gas dispute between Russia and Ukraine descended into near-chaos on Tuesday, leaving European Union diplomats baffled as promises to restart supplies fully were broken and Moscow suggested that the US had meddled in the affair.
Really? They're "baffled"?

By what - Russia acting like Russia?

And anyone - are you surprised that Russia attempted to blame it on the US?

Nope, MQ, not surprised at this one bit.

Everything is as usual. They love to use us as the excuse for everything they do wrong.

Waiting for Ott Scerb, Joe or some of the other resident satirists to explain why this really IS our fault.

docjim505...I can only do so intellect is quite small the range of Amerikkka’s sins SO VAST, that it is all I can do to knock out one piece a day....

I believe Erb blogged about this though, if you have a few hours you might profitably, if that is a word that can used around Erb, read a blog entry or two at his place.

docjim, I’ve explained before why it’s our fault. It’s part of the holy writ of post-modernism that everything is the fault of the West, and particularly of the US as the most powerful example and advocate of Western thinking. It’s simply an axiom of modern thought, and requires no further evidence or explanation.

The Europeans came from Western roots, but they have begun the process of a couple of generations of self-effacement, in which they bow down to their own noble savage brown people immigrants and other noble savage victims in other lands such as Palestine in supplication for their sins. Therefore Europe is now absolved of blame for the crimes of Western Civilization. Well, those in the last couple of decades anyway.

We, on the other hand, have stubbornly refused to admit our guilt and offer supplication. Why, we even had the nerve to counter-attack after 9/11, using paid killers to slaughter noble savage brown people who are the victims of our sins. And this freedom stuff for those noble savages, what a bunch of hoo-hah. As I’ve told you countless times, they’re wogs and they’ll never get this democratic government thing right. And their violence will increase until we are forced to face our sins and our complete powerlessness to do anything about the righteous violence of those wogs. As I told you all of 2008, for example, the violence in Iraq is going to increase until it drives us out and we learn the what a complete and irredeemable failure the Iraq invasion was. Well, as I’ve stated, the vast majority know that already because they listen to wise academics with godlike powers of political science, with only a few dense righties such as the militaristic Neanderthals that post on this site holding out.

Especially McQ. Oh, and Hollis. They’re both just vicious. Not because they make fun of me, oh no, it’s because their military background and thinking have warped their minds, and they think that I’m actually their enemy. Why, just because my philosophy is the polar opposite of theirs, I’m not an enemy! I’m an enlightened soul who comes here constantly to preach the goodness of post-post-modernism to you thick righties. And I do it purely out of altruism, not out of some kind of weird obsession about proving how smart I am so that I can sleep at night, no sir, so stop saying that! I’m not either obsessed with posting here! I’m not, I’m not, I’m not!

What was this post about? Oh, yes, the Russians. They’re are also victims, because their noble experiement in moving beyond the evil and sin of Western democratic government was ruthlessly subverted and cut short by the West, most notably the US. Can you believe it, we actually resisted their wise and innovative leftist changes!

So the wise Europeans intuitively understand that the Russians are victims, and give them the benefit of the doubt every time because it’s part of the Europeans’ supplication. And it has nothing to do with the fact that Russia could pound them into the dirt militarily, nothing at all, so stop saying that! The Europeans have wisely learned to move beyond thoughts of war, and they no longer hire paid killers except a token, symbolic force to appease the warmongers in Washington. The Europeans know, as do all the people in the faculty lounge around here, that war is just icky and awful and repulsive, and soldiers return from war as basket cases who completely disrupt society. Except if they are Russian or Muslim soldiers, of course, because those men are heroes who return to pass along the valuable lessons they learned fighting the wicked West. Assuming they manage to avoid the air strikes that kill most of them, of course.

So, in sum, it’s all our fault, Russia is completely justified and only operating in their self-interest, and they don’t really threaten anybody because the wise Europeans will use the magical power of negotiation to head off any real violence. Oh, and there is no victory over noble savage brown people, so to be pro-Israeli you have to be pro-Palestinian, and to be pro-Georgian you have to be pro-Russian, and to be pro-Taiwan you have to be pro-China, etc. And of course, to be pro-American you have to be pro-Iranian and pro-Saudi. It’s all obvious, and I don’t understand why you dense righties just don’t get it.

Thanks, Joe. Of course, I really can’t come here and comment very often. I’m on sabbatical, working on my new book "Why is War Easy: Because Dense Righties Like It". But at least my altruistic commenting here also doubles as research for the book, as I try to study and understand the pathologies of those who believe militarism actually has any redeeming qualities. Though it still mystifies my how anyone could find something so icky as war to ever be necessary. Especially when magical, life-fulfilling, human-bonding negotiation is available much more cheaply.

It was a lesson the Great-Souled One, Jim-muh Carter, tried to teach us. If only we had listened! Jim-Muh used NEGOTATION against the Iranian students and it worked! Did we bomb the Iranians, no we talked, and the day after the Gentle One retired, they were freed. If ONLY we had started talking one or two days earlier they could have been released on the Dark Day, that the Anti-Carter was Inaugurated...

"Thanks, Joe."

I am beginning to worry about the long term mental health effects of attempting to follow the pseudo-thought processes of Erp, even if only to mock them. The stress seems to be cusing some dissociative identity disorder. It is understandable that at least a part of a relatively healthy mind should rebel and seek to protect itself from probable damage or even destruction caused by forcing itself into alien and bizarre contortions, much like suddenly finding oneself in a universe whose basic physical laws were created by Salvador Dali. I confess my head starts to spin just contemplating it.

Joe, take a break. Relax. Go watch a Julie Andrews movie or an old disney movie.

Go watch a Julie Andrews movie...
I second that. Make it S.O.B. You get to see her, um, well, let’s just say if you haven’t seen the movie you’ll be surprised. Plus you can get a perspective on insanity as the main character goes crazy.

Oh, wait. Maybe that’s not what Tim had in mind.

Great movie! Thanks for reminding me.

Thanks, Joe and Ott. You don’t disappoint.

I will say, though, that I’ve been once or twice to Erb’s blog. Most of what he writes is typical liberal hogwash, but sometimes he does fairly well.
