What the Right is Thinking, Fantasizing, Muddling, Mulling Over and/or Wanting to Foment.

First of all, it's pretty obvious that they still believe that they're in the majority, even though they're not.

They also seem to believe that there is a ground swell in this country for a revolution to overthrow our new liberal/socialist/fascist/whatever government that the actual majority voted in.

They actually think that the rest of us are so clueless that we can't understand that the Obama Administration and the Democrat Congress are dismantling the Constitution and bringing in communism as our new form of government. They know this because, by God they love this country and care enough to take interest in what's going on. They stay informed, they listen to talk radio, they watch Fox News, they click on WorldNetDaily and Newsmax and they're all saying the same things, so it must be true.

Oh yeah, and they're going to take our guns away from us. Just like Hitler did.

But hang on a minute, where were all these Constitution lovers during the last eight years. How many of them really realize that there's a lot more to the Constitution than the 2nd Amendment?

Imagine the furor if Barack Obama had said these words:

"I don't give a goddamn," Bush retorted. "I'm the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way."

"Mr. President," one aide in the meeting said. "There is a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution."

"Stop throwing the Constitution in my face," Bush screamed back. "It's just a goddamned piece of paper!"

I really don't remember their outrage when this happened. They didn't complain when George W. Bush called our Constitution a "Goddamned piece of paper" and they didn't complain when Bush ignored the Constitution and broke the law in doing so.

We may not have realized it at the time, but in the period from late 2001-January 19, 2009, this country was a dictatorship. The constitutional rights we learned about in high school civics were suspended. That was thanks to secret memos crafted deep inside the Justice Department that effectively trashed the Constitution. What we know now is likely the least of it.

Of course, to a card carrying member of the Silent "Majority", none of this stuff actually happened. It was just hype perpetrated by the liberal media. Really.

Let's take a look at what motivates these people.

Here's what a joke looks like in the extreme Right. I think it epitomizes the Right's "Audacity of Hope".

What does President Lincoln, President Kennedy, and Presedent Obama have in common?

Nothing Yet .

I get this neat stuff in my e-mail. It's kinda scary. There's lots of folks out there who really believe this stuff. They are afraid of their government, they are paranoid and they are armed.

Here's a really neat one, it has a biblical theme and it pretty much covers the whole Right Wing Fantasy Land misinformation campaign. You can see it all here.

It's titled "The Promised One". Obama, of course is the Promised One. Here's the happy ending.

After reading this, if your not wetting your knickers, you must not be a "real American". Mine's dry too.

You must be thinking, "Why would anyone rather believe untruths and be miserable when it's just as easy to believe the truth?" We all know that knowing the truth doesn't make you happy but at least the things that we're concerned about merit that concern. I mean, we're not going to get off our butts, go buy tea and go protest a 3% tax increase on the richest 5% of the country.

When I first read the next vitriolic screed I thought it was written by one of the "Silent Majority" members who had let the right wing propaganda take her off the deep end and needed to vent their rage before they spontaneously combusted.

It was surprising to find out that the woman who wrote this is quite accomplished. I figure that she is just another of the Right's hired guns that they use to manipulate the rubes.

It's about the Obama's trip to the G20 Summit and her indignation over the Obama's performance during that trip

You can read it all here, but here's some bits and pieces.

Yo, first couple!

Yeah, that's really the title.

OK, Barack and Michelle - it's my turn now.

As long as you seem to be on the road of informality, throwing tradition, etiquette, proper diplomacy, protocol and common sense out the window and replacing it with 21st century casual, I'm taking the liberty, as an American citizen, to give you a message from my heart: stop it!

For two people of your political and diplomatic level, your breezy disregard for proper behavior is embarrassing.

Don't you just love how the Right feels that they are experts on all matters and therefore they should be the arbitrator on all matters, because the rest of us are just too stupid to understand grown up things. Like this.

We've been treated to you repeatedly criticizing and apologizing for our country on foreign soil in front of world leaders. Then, to make it worse, you bowed to the Saudi king, a full, from-the-waist, bow!

What was that about? Bowing signifies subservience! You can make book that the Saudis and all the Middle East understands that. Barack, the president of the United States of America is not subservient to anyone.

That bow was inappropriate and demeaning to your office and to all Americans. You should be ashamed, at the very least, embarrassed.

You can kinda see my problem with taking these people's selective indignation too seriously.

This was going to be it, but I received a new "joke" today. I just thought I'd share it with you.

Obama walks into a bar with a parrot on his shoulder. The bartender says, Hey, where did you get that? The parrot says, Kenya ...they're all over the place!

When you stop rolling around on the floor check out this video and think about if the Right is who you want leading this country into the future.

Did you know?

I don't think the Right could even come close to grasping the implications.



  1. The only thing funny about the right is that it thinks it's something to take seriously. In and of itself it's not, but I guess since it has so many nutbag followers who DO take it seriously then the sane among us must try to counter that as best we can.

  2. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.
