A Republican or Right-Wingers cry for "Civility"

are actually Demands that liberals censor themselves. Don't. When a Republican lap dog of the Rich or unhinged Right-Wing troll demands tolerance it's a trick to reframe the discussion or debate under their terms.

After President Obama's press conference yesterday, in which he perfectly laid out the Republican Shutdown goals and causes (i.e. it's an attempted Coup), Republican Representative Luke Messer took to MSNBC to whine, "The President talked about civility but he used the term hijack..."

Boo hoo hoo hoo the President is saying mean things about Republicans. Waaaaaah! How can anyone believe Republicans are super tough hard-charging patriots when words by that scary man in the White House make them cry?

But, what's really going on is a technique that the Right learned under the Mastery of the King Rat Fucker Lee Atwater and shaped by Conseravtive Icons Jack Abramoff, Ralph Reed, and Grover Norquist in the early 1980's.

During Abramoff's and Norquist's leadership of the College Republicans they and their trollish minions advised CR chapters to test the boundaries of liberalism by, 
Form a "Beastiality Club" or "Straight People's Alliance". Charter the club and apply for student activity money. If the gays are able to obtain funds, you should be able to. If the student government refuses to give you money, hold a press conference and attack them for being sexists and discriminatory. Complain to the Dean's office. Threaten a law suit. - College Republican Technology Manual early 1980's as reported by Thomas Frank in The Wrecking Crew
From Jack Abramoff, Grover Norquist, Karl Rove and Ralph Reed and their legions of right-wing college punks in the 1980's the modern Tea Party fanatics, the James O'Keefe's of today, learned to always chuckle, 'Oh I thought Liberals were supposed to be tolerant" in order to reframe the debate or steer it away from the topic at hand.

First, the ghost of Karl Popper should appear and say, In the name of tolerance, I claim the Right not to tolerate the intolerant, and hit the Tea Party fanatic in the Head with a Hammer.

Second, don't get sucked into their bullshit. When a Right-Winger proclaims victory by saying 'Liberals resort to name-calling when they are losing the argument" it's actual a Tell and Pre-Attack Que. The Conservative is telling you he doesn't have an argument and he's setting up his attack, You have to be tolerant or I win. You have to absorb my insults calmly or I win. You can't call me a racist or a liar or I win. 

As Father Michael Pfleger said yesterday, “They’d rather see America fail than Obama succeed.” Call this Republican Shutdown what it really is; An attempted coup d'état and a cold Civil War.

While the Right is working to destroy President Obama it should always be remembered that this Shutdown and Coup attempt are just battles in the Long War the vicious right have been waging upon Us. Their final solution is the complete negation of the Progressive Era and the creation of the Ultra-Reactionary Neo-Feudalist Dream State;
The common vision: an America in which the rich will be taxed at the same rates as the poor, where capital is freed from government constraints, where government services are turned over to the free market, where the minimum wage is repealed, unions are made irrelevant, and law-abiding citizens can pack handguns in every state and town. "My ideal citizen is the self-employed, homeschooling, IRA-owning guy with a concealed-carry permit,"said Grover Norquist. "Because that person doesn't need the goddamn government for anything."

I've been reading your posts for a while now Gene and I've got to ask; what happened in your life to make you such an angry and hateful person?

Grung_e_Gene said...

Well, Chickenhammer I could take this question several ways.

1) I could believe you're honestly are asking and tell you.

2) I could retort by asking you how you support a party, an ideology and a group of rich bastards who literally let children die of cholera in Africa to make money.

3) I could brush it off by quoting some movie or historical precedent.

4) I could see your rhetorical device as labeling me angry and hateful and laugh because 9/11 changed everything.

Gene, you had me at "King Rat Fucker Lee Atwater." Now, I don't think you're bitter and hateful, so I'm confused as to what you've got against rats? I mean, sure, they're sewer dwelling bottom feeders, but come on, they're not Lee Atwater bad.

ChickenHammer said...

Okay Gene I'll play along. 1) is how it was asked. 2) would be a reasonable response to 1).

3) & 4) are the easy ways out of responding to 1).

Someone once said, "If you're not pissed off, you don't understand the situation." We need more people pissed off at the powers-that-be.

Exactly. But, what the Right has successfully done over the past 35 years is redirect that anger away from the true cause Rich people screwing the 99% over and stealing the Wealth of Nations.

While, Occupy had huge faults, their Biggest Success and the biggest reason it had to be crushed was it opened people's eyes that Government isn't the Problem, Right-Wing control of Government is the Problem because of the way the Right-Wing government funneled money to the Rich.

Ok, chickenhammer. I'll take you at your word. One day I'll write a post about it.
