Things Are Getting Pretty Scary

I just finished watching a movie on tv. I usually don’t do too many movies and even more rarely watch the fright ones. I guess since it was Halloween(and it was late) not much else was on. As per usual during the commercials I channel hopped. Towards the end of the movie I was floating between The Fly 2 and Bill O Riley.  I say this with no hyperbole and in utter, complete honesty. I felt far, far more uneasy, uncomfortable, and unhappy when viewing the big O.

I think I am about to take a vacation from the rightwing blogs again. I have had about all I can take. The sense of entitlement and superiority and total lack of the ability to project reality is just astounding. One would assume that practicing the principals of loving one another(even in the most generic sense) would be a basic to being called a good American, or even human. Regardless of religion or complete lack of it.  I have proof beyond the shadow of a doubt that it no longer applies to the people on the radical right. Scores of conservatives have abandon them because of their wingnuttery and it’s like they don’t even notice or don’t care.  Its hate everybody and everything and when it comes to reaching out to others it is totally missing. It’s me, me, ,me, mine, mine, mine. The right wing talkers have done a damnable horror to our fellow citizens. They’ve turned these people into monsters. The radical right has become something that I can barely stand to look at. They truly frighten me and cause me to fear for basic humanity. Just one example... From a radical righter that I questioned went he found a new word to associate with all the evil of the world. I questioned one of his statements:

If someone is a socialist they are not decent and honorable?????"...His response..

Yup. No ideology has caused more suffering in the history of man than socialism. Most American socialists today refuse to admit in public that they are socialists because deep down they know socialism is inhuman and evil.

If someone was for socialism, after all, then they would be for something definite, materialist, true, absolute, and clear. In a sense, the new evasive socialists are more honest-- they want everyone to fade away into nothingness like the Buddha. The older socialists desired universal immolation too, but pretended that they were for scientifically improving the lot of mankind. The new socialists do not have these illusions-- they truly worship the mystical common good, not the earthly individual good. (bold is mine)

I’m wondering what makes a hero. Isn’t it someone who sacrifices for others or for the common good? I’m sorry but their whole fucking world is upside down. You can read the above and smell the selfishness. The description of his idea of socialism and socialist doesn’t even make sense and has nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with socialism unless you are him. I have no idea what or who he is talking about. In my response I never got to the Crusades or Aristocrats or Dictators who, quite likely in my reading of history, have caused much more suffering.  I guess I’m not a really smart informed guy like he is. Never fear though, I can promise you, because I have followed these guys and this one in particular, that something new will be the biggest cause of suffering or evil next year. Last year it was Muslims. These guys change root of all evil faster than a high school girl changes boy friends.

I have no idea how we fix our country with them involved. You’ve got to know that if Obama wins the last month is just a warm up. We saw an entire 2 terms of Clinton taken up with this stuff. My only hope is that they are this time humiliated and disgraced into shutting their GD mouth and try to make a contribution to success and building things up instead of destruction, fear, loathing, hate and selfishness that is primary in the wingnut world. I’ve said it before and the longer things go on it becomes less of a metaphor everyday…I’m not sure they and I are even living on the same planet. I have no idea how such horrid thinking could infect people who likely have many good qualities if one met them in person. I’m sure they think they are right and doing the good thing but do they have a freakin mirror for Gods sake!? Can they stop with the hate, division and selfishness long enough to see who they are becoming and how they are acting? I hold the right wing radio talkers responsible. They’ve turned these human creatures of God or the higher power into a radical bunch of self centered, haughty little demons. Karma belongs to them. They will someday find they reap what they sow.
