Author’s Note 10/28/08: This post contains language that might be offensive to some. I wrote it the other night in the heat of the moment, and for content purposes and the message it is trying to get across, it remains posted. I apologize to anyone who may have read this prior to my posting of this caveat. I am a down to earth man, and many times my language reflects that. I cannot apologize for who I am or what I wrote, but I will apologize for my use of some rather colorful metaphors! 😀
I am writing this now because I have the fear and anger inside me that needs to be channeled out before I lose the moment. The only way I know how to do this is to write about how I feel and what I just witnessed.
Sarah Palin has officially crossed the line. She has gone over the edge, down the rabbit hole and into the snake pit (where I’m sure she’ll feel quite at home). At a rally today, she said that Obama’s policies will lead to a Communist state and the death of freedom. We’ve moved from Socialist to Communist in one short week.
It began a week ago with the insane ravings of Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann reciting a Neo-McCarthyist message, and now we have Palin pretty much calling Senator Obama a Communist. Note to GOP: Your Rogue has officially gone WAY off course and is treading waters that haven’t been sailed upon in over 50 years. She has a message that is so right wing, one could call you Fascists…or NAZIS. This is 1932 all over again.
Think about it: economic crisis, uncertain electorate, Nazis blaming everything on the Communists; only now the Fascist GOP is pushing the Dems as Communists. God help us if McCain gets in, because clearly he is President Hindenburg and Palin is Chancellor Hitler…and we know what happened there. Hinndenberg dies, and Hitler takes charge and institutes complete and total domination of the State by the Nazis.
The mechanisms have already been put into place for this to happen: the PATRIOT Act, the wiretapping, the secret prison locations, the massive camps built all around the nation by Haliburton, suspension of Habeas Corpus. The machinery is all there, and it’s just waiting for someone to push the button to start the conveyor belts running. And who gets that rolling?
WE DO. We start the process toward completion by voting these right wing nut jobs by pushing the button, turning the lever, or punching a hole next to their names on Election Day.
My wife thinks I’m about ready to completely snap, and after what I saw tonight on Huffington Post, I am truly frightened for this country and the world: SARAH HAS OFFICIALLY LEFT THE RESERVATION
The parallels between what is happening right now and Germany’s Wiemar Republic in 1932 are absolutely UNCANNY. IT IS UP TO US TO STOP HISTORY FROM REPEATING ITSELF. Instead of locking up Jews, they will do that to Muslims this time around. They will create another “Reichstag Event” to make this all happen. 9/11 got the ball rolling; Bush started the plan and layed the groundwork. Pretty soon dissent will be a thing of the past. Blogs like this one will disappear without a trace to be replaced with those favoring the State.
And she talks about Obama taking away our freedoms? WHAT THE FUCK IS SHE SAYING HERE, BECAUSE IT SURE AS HELL SEEMS THAT THE REPUBLICANS HAVE DONE A FINE JOB OF STARTING THE JOB AND NOW THEY WANT TO FINISH IT!
God, I am MAD…and fucking scared. My hands were literally trembling before. I KNOW she is a nut case, but I have common sense and a 150 IQ…but it is entirely possible that people will BELIEVE HER. THAT is the most frightening thing I can imagine…and that is why I am probably a bit over the top tonight. But I have to be. Because my conscience will not allow me to stay silent in any form. Because I love my country too much to see it taken over by a bunch of fucking right wing fringe lunatics.
I probably sound the same way she does right now…that just occurred to me. There is a difference though…I don’t have a lust for power behind my conviction SHE DOES.
For me, I put my love of Country first. God help us all in the coming days. We’re going to need all the help we can get to keep America free.
Senator McCain…please stop the insanity NOW, because you are the only one who can pull the plug on this lunatic. If I hear you defend this speech tomorrow, and evolve a strategy around this, then I know one thing is for certain. When you sold your soul you truly did not understand the price you would pay.
Not only did you lose your soul, but have taken the Nation with you in the process.
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” – Joseph Goebbels
Spot on Ark! These people scare me and as much hope as I have for the future with an Obama administration, I have an equal amount of despair for a McCain administration.
