Red Eye: Rall’s Rampage
Wow. It’s only been a week since I last posted, but it has seemed like forever. Oh, I’ve checked in, watching my insignificant amount of blog traffic dwindle to nothingness due to lack of updates. What could I do? I was moving. You know how that goes. Packing, renting trucks,
sweet-talking, coercing, threatening “friends” into helping…
Finally, it’s done. I’m in my new digs; a tiny conservative Mecca amidst far-left liberal hell. Still, Hell has great Thai food, and the neighborhood gas station doesn’t just sell beer, it sells a wide variety of imports (Stella Artois – around $12.00 for a six pack – among many others.)
No sooner do I get my “media wall” set up, just in time for “Red Eye,” do I discover something highly important: I forgot to order cable.
Instead of watching on this:
I’m watching “Red Eye,” and all my favorite FOX News shows on this:
Hey, no matter how small the screen, “Red Eye” is always larger than life.
Know what else is larger than life? Liberal hypocrisy.
As Greg Gutfeld pointed out in today’s “Greg-Alogue,” some idiot cartoonist who was all upset over Muslim sensibilities regarding “Everybody Draw Mohamed Day” is now actively encouraging a violent revolution right here in the good ol’ US of A.
Anyway, I bring this up because this is the same Ted Rall who now appeared on Dylan Ratigan’s show, to make a case for violent revolution in the United States. Yes, the guy who cowers in the face of intolerant extremists, is now egging on violent attacks against pudgy retirees in tricorn hats.
In the show, Ratigan asks, “Are things in our country so bad that it might actually be time for revolution?”
Of course, the answer is yes, and it requires “violence or at least the threat thereof.” Then Rall comes in – saying violence is a last resort. But – one he really, really likes!
Then, Gutfeld quotes Rall’s own book
The government, the corporations, and the extreme right are prepared to coalesce into an Axis of Evil. Are you going to fight back? Will you do whatever it takes, including taking up arms?… I want you to see that revolt is a good idea, and that it has never been more necessary.
Gee. Party of Fear much?
Is it just me, or is the Left coming completely unhinged. These are the people who want to ban guns (so only criminals have them), and who whine incessantly about how conservatives are fear mongering, racist anti-government types intent on destroying the country by following that most revolutionary and radical of all documents: the US Constitution.
For two years, they’ve been pointing the finger at Tea Party activists, screaming about a couple of racially motivated signs, insisting at any time evil right wing militia groups were going to storm the White House.
Now, suddenly, the very same government “protecting” us from those corporate special interest fat cats is in cahoots with greedy capitalists and must be put down like dogs.
Needless to say, Rachel Maddow and the reinstated Keith Olbermann were quick to point out how violent left wing radicals like Ted Rall is stirring the pot, promoting anti-government sentiment, and will most likely lead to the next Timothy McVeigh.
Oh, wait. They totally didn’t.
See, for a long time now, liberals have been engaging in wishful thinking when it comes to conservatives. They want the Tea Party to be about hate, because they want it to come to violence. They want a reason to stamp out conservatism once and for all, using any means necessary.
Not all liberals, of course. Just the asshats. As Bill Schulz pointed out on the show
I think anyone who brings up revolutionary rhetoric on either side is a tool.
Yeah, pretty much.
There might be a time in the future when the US must undergo another internal and violent struggle, but that time is not today. Why? Because conservatives just completed stage one of our dangerous, right wing revolution.
Barely a week after the election, some major jerk is going on MSNBC to tell another major jerk that the government is part of an Axis of Evil. Could you guys at least get your own catch phrases? It’s one thing to blame Bush, but then to rip off his tag lines? Well, that’s just tacky.
Plus, you suck.
Part of me wants the left to bring it on. Come at us with your pussy WTO riot-style protests. Throw bricks through our windows. We have concealed carry permits, bitches.
Then, a more reasonable me takes over. I wonder how intellectually loose ex-cartoonists like Rall, or even Ratigan, affect the public mindset. To wit, I traversed the countryside, trying to find just one person who watched the MSNBC segment in question.
For the most part, the response I got was “MSNBwha?”
Then, finally, I found one Ratigan viewer lounging in the park.
Oddly, he had no comment.
I guess Che probably said no to the medical marijuana, huh?
So much for Rall’s dreams of a liberal revolution. See you again in 2012, you big fat pansy.
