A Blast from the Past… “Something Died on Election Day”… It’s as Good as it was When it was Written Two Years Ago… Four outta Five Ain’t Bad

00 mexicanofobia. 21.10.14

A sign from the Anglo Southwest (the former Northwest Mexico under American occupation)… note the ignorant apostrophe in “White’s”… THIS is the Republican base on a good day… any questions?

This still has cred after two years… the only wrong guess was that the GOP would abandon the “dumb white Southern redneck” strategy. They “jess know” that Obama was born in Africa (if that were so, the GOP would’ve been before the SCOTUS toot-suite… and BHO wouldn’t have become president), that Willy Romney was OK in skipping the Vietnam War draft (but that all other “draft-dodgers” are scum), and that blacks and Mexicans are gumming up the welfare system (most welfare recipients are white). Still, four outta five ain’t bad!

There was much to celebrate on election night. However, nothing is more worthy of our collective huzzah than seeing so many dumb Republican ideas implode, all at once. Let’s begin…

The Southern Strategy

Republican operatives have used some form of the race-dividing Southern Strategy since Barry Goldwater’s team invented it in the 1960s. That led to nearly 50 years of race baiting aimed at under-educated white rednecks. The Southern Strategy tapped into the ludicrous belief that black people are dumber, lazier, and more venal than white men are. It helped secure victories for Nixon, Reagan, and George Bush Sr by fomenting the view that white people needed to band together to keep black people from stealing the national cookie jar. Nevertheless, it fell entirely flat this time. Apparently, you can call the President a Muslim-Socialist-Kenyan-Anti-colonial-Black Nationalist-Terrorist-Food Stamp-lover who worships at the feet of his Southern Baptist-Anarchist Pastor. Although, you can no longer expect a large proportion of voters to take you seriously if you do. You’ll never see the Southern Strategy practised again. Good riddance to this maggot-laced pile of rubbish, we say. {this was his wrong guess… I wish that it HAD happened: editor}

That Karl Rove is a genius

Now… for the second presidential election… Karl Rove’s strategies and predictions crashed in spectacular fashion. His American Crossroads spent a mammoth 100 million bucks in rich guy’s money to try to buy national and local elections. End result? 1.29 percent of the millions Rove spent through Crossroads had the desired result. Arguably, his spending had a negative effect. There was also a sweaty late-night meltdown on Fox News, just at the moment they called the race for Obama. Just then, a wild-haired Rove realised his abject failure… on camera, no less. If he wasn’t such a despicable charlatan, one could almost feel sorry for him. However, two days later, he blamed his losses on “voter suppression by the Obama campaign”.

That Americans want a government that provides no actual services to actual citizens

Bubble conservatives believe that Americans don’t want the government to help anyone. On every issue from Obamacare, to Medicaid, to Medicare to disaster relief, Americans told exit pollsters just the opposite… and said so by large margins. Fully 60 percent of voters want taxes raised on at least the top earners to pay for government. (Only about 2 percent of households earn 250,000 USD or more.)

That you can take Donald Trump seriously on any topic

On election night, a seditious Donald Trump tweeted that the Obama victory was illegitimate and that real Americans needed to revolt. Combined with his birther jihad, what he illuminated is a small, pernicious, and simple-minded man… the kind who might insist that all of his employees call him “Mr”. Trump is best left to host his Celebrity Apprentice show (which itself looks more and more like Celebrity Rehab these days). Anything bigger is beyond his abilities.

That conservatives simply need to be more conservative

The Far Right always blames their governing failures on not being conservative enough. However, the rise of the Teabagger led to attempts to redefine rape into legitimate and illegitimate kinds. Then, attempts to defund Planned Parenthood and limit birth control. Then, talk of electrocuting border crossers and outright lies about food stamps, black people, and Jeep. It’d be hard to argue that the right-wing didn’t go far enough to the right. They went all in this time, and most of us responded with a thoughtful, “Not on your life, buddy”.

Therefore, now, those right-wing pundits operating in and around the Fox-Limbaugh bubble argue that the election “wasn’t a mandate”. However, those who still won’t call for a less radical Republican platform or still won’t admit that Americans no longer tolerate intolerance or intransigence don’t have the interests of the Republican Party in mind. They’re just trying to protect their own turf. They’re trying to keep that low-information white guy flapping on the outrage hook. Moreover, that’s just to keep the advertisers on their shows.

The vilest usage in the language is “some of my best friends are (fill in the blank)”. I don’t have such… I have FRIENDS… full stop. I don’t enquire about their background… I enquire into their character. It’s time to call racism “racist”… you wonder why the Republican Party supports the Uniate racists in the Ukraine? It’s because they find kindred spirits there! Shitbirds of a feather DO flock together! The GOP hates blacks and Latinos as much as Galician Uniates hate Rusins, Russians, and surzhik-speakers (and all members of the real Orthodox Church of whatever nationality). They find that their hates are compatible. Both support killing, torture, and lynching… so, why does it surprise you to find the Republicans supporting the Uniate filth in the notional Ukraine?

I wish that the “Southern Strategy” were dead. It isn’t. It’s one of the foulest and most despicable aspects of the Republican Party. Vote AGAINST Republicans on Election Day… they’re for violence at home and violence abroad. The Democrats aren’t much better, but they’re not as racist. Don’t let the Republican “Pro-Life” plank mesmerise you… they’re in favour of a soulless corporate dictatorship with all the bennies of society flowing to the Affluent Effluent. That’s what you vote for when you vote Republican.

It’s your choice…

21 October 2014. Why Hungary? RT Video on Rusin Identity

00.01 Carpatho-Russia coat of arms

******

______________________________

Why Hungary? For one, Magyar is sufficiently different from Rusin to ensure survival of the language. Secondly, the Rusins were under the Kingdom of Hungary prior to 1914. Thirdly, and most importantly, the Magyars aren’t bent on destroying the Rusin people as the Galician Uniate fascists are. Galician Uniate “Consciousness” is a racist ideology very similar to Nazism. “The Ukraine for Ukrainians only!” “Knife the Moskals!” That’s why many Rusins are looking towards Hungary. That’s what I see, any road…

21 October 2014. A Wrinkle on the OCA’s “Background Checks”

01 money down toilet

______________________________

Due to the bad publicity stemming from the Storheim affair and the well-known homosexual hijinks of some higher clergy, the OCA is requiring clergy and altar servers to undergo “background checks”. That isn’t what’s wrong… it’s that the OCA is making them pay for it out of their own pockets! In other words, the OCA has to run checks so that its insurers and lawyers are happy, but the institutional Church is refusing to pay for it and is trying to fob the costs onto the clergy and servers. Lyonyo and Jillions deserve a Cossack horsewhipping for this. Watch ‘em crawl outta their holes and claim that it ain’t so. They have money for ecumenical lovefeasts with the papist attackers of the Mother Church (and for indifferentist meetings with the Uniate killers of our compatriots in Novorossiya), but they have no money to pay for the background checks demanded by their insurers and lawyers. I’ll check into Bedlam with Mr Scrooge…

The OCA continues to deteriorate as Mollard drools vacuously (yet, more than one source has told me that’s preferable to Dahulich having the white hat… I tend to agree). Yet, that may be for the best in the end… each day sees one less true believer in the OCA Myth… that’s a GOOD thing. Let it mature in God’s good time…

The West isn’t lifting a finger to help its Uniate fascist client in Kiev. Poroshenko’s hung out to dry and everyone knows it. He’s no longer useful to Langley… how long will he last? I haven’t the foggiest… no one does. Poroshenko IS going down, but no one knows WHEN. Do note that Darlin’ Yuliya is nowhere to be seen and that Tyagnibok is seeing to his political redoubt in the Lvovshchina. They know something… but what?
