On Tuesday, Barack Obama will take over as president of the United States. The deranged of the nation’s online denizens were bitching about the evils of liberal polices even when the presidency and both houses of Congress were controlled by Republicans with an unusually strong evangelical stench. When the 2006 midterm elections saw the Democrats regain control of both the Senate and the House, these blinkered souls somehow began making even more guttural sounds and unleashing an even more prolific torrent of lies, distortions, and petty grievances, a harbinger of what would come if a Dem won the presidency in 2008. Sure enough, with Obama poised to begin his term, the nutballs have shed all traces of pretense to either literacy or coherence and simply started detonating shitbombs wherever they live.
In this spirit, check out today’s one-two punch at (We’ll Never) Stop the ACLU (or Running Our Keyboards in Vain), which at baseline is reliably rich an all of the elements of blaring right-wing hysteria but today boasts a comical and psychotic melange of spite and nonsense.
First is a post consisting of a complaint about people who are getting Obama tattoos (as if this is, like, a free country!) and advancing the idea that the economy might not be such a wreck if liberals weren’t busy throwing away money on frivolous things. Yes, if only liberals would blow more dough on firearms, Yosemite Sam mud flaps and various causes associated with God, this nation easily could have remained financially robust despite the unprecedented rash of calamitous decisions made in recent years.
Next is an entry blaming environmentalists for what the writer calls a plane crash the other day. I was under the impression that U.S. Airways flight 1549 made an emergency landing in the Hudson and averted a crash, but some obviously remember it differently. That aside, the blogger asserts that Canada geese, a known hazard to aircraft, would have been rightfully obliterated long ago were it not for “greenies,” stating,
They would soon make lovely roasts on lots of dining-room tables otherwise. But, obnoxious as the geese are, the power of the Greenie lobby prevents any culling. And Congress has done its best to back up the Greenies by funding “non-lethal” measures to remove the geese. Clearly, those methods did not work
People like the author of this post (an Australian avidly interested in misunderstanding U.S. politics) should be careful what they wish for, given what would happen if the dumbest and most obnoxious humans were “culled” from the U.S. landscape owing to their irredeemable shortcomings and ugly lowering of various metrics of societal functioning.
it doesn’t get much more barrel-bottom-scraping, throw-our-hands-in-the-air than this. Such entries are the kind of laughable trash people come up with in lieu of formally admitting that they neither know what the hell they’re talking about or care to apprise themselves of, and address, meaningful points.
I’m just wondering precisely how these and similar snapperheads will complain about Obama’s first definitive move as commander-in-chief, whatever it is and particularly if it concerns the occupation of Iraq. Will it be a complaint about caving into “the terrorists” (should it be a move aimed at easing troops out of the region) or one about “hypocrisy” (im the event Obama does something the nuts actually approve of)? Fans of the General Human CircusTM can’t wait to find out.
