The left lies to itself just like the mouth-breathing morons on the right. They act just as naively, ignorantly, and idiotically trusting as the Michelle Malkin followers, as the weeping Glenn Becks, as the 70-year-old Medicare recipients who want the government out of their health care. They are every bit as deluded and dangerous. We are every bit as deluded and dangerous, because like the right we lie to ourselves. We refuse to admit the truth--we have traded our freedom for credit cards and health benefits. We have let them kill us off for money, and if we thought about it we would be so ashamed of ourselves that we would not be able to function. So we don't think.
We are going through a replication of the bank bail-out scheme. The right whips itself into a tizzy about moronic issues like dogs chewing over red meat their masters tossed to them to keep them busy. The left discusses the "issues," debating the best way to achieve their goals, arguing over more and more trivial gains which they will never get anyway. Meanwhile the elite continue to rake in billions while the peasants bicker among themselves. They consolidate banks, run up debt to be paid by the tax-payer, build fortified compounds with private security firms, and set the peasants against each other in amusing pit matches. How they must have laughed at the tea-partiers, fighting so vigorously and emotionally to be bent over and screwed by the elite. They must have been choking on their Crystal and Sapphire martinis, overcome with laughter as the boobs in the streets begged to be ripped off by their betters.
And the left has been no less amusing. See how they run in fear as they are being murdered by the frenzy of hate, bought and paid for by the likes of Steve Forbes and Dick Armey! They are so cowed that they are afraid to even raise their voices against lynchings! Shhhhh, mustn't be shrill! Mustn't embarrass one's peers, or risk being criticized by someone on the internet whom we depend on for links or approval or acceptance to the liberal club! Most of all we must never say that the powerful laugh at us, mock us, steal from us, send us off to die in wars, watch us collapse of illness and die in the streets or cheap apartments. No, we must lie instead.
We lie about our country. We are not the best and brightest. We are vain, greedy and murderous. We lie about God. There aren't any and we know it. But hey, maybe there is and maybe we'll get something out of it at some time. And it's useful for keeping the stupid masses in line. Plus people would fight back and that's hard and unpleasant and hey, let's have another glass of wine. We lie about our families. Our parents treated us like crap but we still want them to love us, still want to inherit their property (what's left of it), so what the hell, better not remind them of all the times they called us stupid, said we'd never amount to anything, hit us, used us, manipulated us. If we don't have them to
Our elite are killing us. And we are handing them the rope, writing FED on our chests, wrapping our mouth, ankles and hands in duct tape, and for our final act, telling our fellow citizens to not investigate, because you never know, our imminent death could be a suicide. Which, come to think of it, it is.
