THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT


I took a well deserved, okay, forced, vacation after the election and now I’m back. The folks at Blogs4Victory are in a state of delusional grand mal rictus after the election defeat of Mitt Romney and I expected that much and worse. This is what I expected after proof that the far Right, the TEA Party element of States’ Rights Know Nothings, who will worship at the feet of Rush until the day they die, would be given proof at the polls that Mitt, despite being the whitest guy they could run, was in reality unelectable because he ran a schizophrenic and disjointed campaign. Romney had to cater to the bigoted far Right and appear to be a centrist at the same time. His disadvantage then wasn’t that he was simply politically out ground gamed by Obama he also was running as a candidate from two parties and neither one even if he got all the votes that they had would not represent a majority of the American electorate.

I responded to the above linked post at B4V with this to my dear friend in political argument Amazona a little while ago:

Amazona why don;t you explain to me why any of this matters to you? I’ve got a longer view of global history and of the future of America and it has been proven by this election as an extension of the election of 2008 that when conservatives allow themselves to show their true colors and speak their hearts they are exposed as a group that is antithetical to the ideals of American Freedom.
Yes Amazona I’m calling you a fascist but not because you secretly have an SS uniform in your closet. You would never admit being a fascist because being anything than a soldier loving American patriot cannot be tolerated in 2012 conservative America. And that’s the problem people like you that make up a full 40% of those who identify with the Republican Party who have cloaked themselves in the belief that States’ Rights are equivalent to want to “live by the values and laws as set forth in the Constitution” you have no idea how delusional and out of touch you really are. This may or not be ageist or even racist hell I don’t know but if you took the white lover 60 crowd out of the US by and large America would be the progressive prosperous nation that it deserves to be. Trust me Amazona this is no more harsh than the words of the man you voted for who wrote off 47% of the electorate in a speech that cost him any chance of being elected President.

So now angry at the Grim Reaper sharpening his scythe and even angrier that you calls to bigotry by the Koch Brothers have failed now you are going to ally yourselves with the most destructive elements in American business those CEOs who would ship their jobs overseas to save their personal lifestyles of lucre. Hell, I thought you guys were the ones who were on the side of the poor because of the religion thing? Man was I wrong! At least you live in a free enough country where you can rant and rave about crap that doesn’t mean anything [Hey when was the last time economic genius Mark Noonan wrote and article about bank failures or the collapse of the Chinese economy or . . ] in the great scheme of things. It’s gonna be a tough twenty years for you after the Democrats take back the House in 2014 and Hillary wins in 2016 and none of the doom and gloom predictions you love to make come true and America moves into another great age of prosperity.


In Hindsight

Amazona is a States Rights person of the ilk of those Southern governors of the 1940s though 60s who in the face of a changing America invoked their own race card. It’s a soft bigotry but a bigotry nevertheless. The good news is that as old and white as the conservative movement has become in the face of the browning of and the resurgence of the liberal electorate in America the time for her kind is growing short.

Pax Terra!
