18 October 2018. I Wrote This Four Years Ago… It’s Truer Today Than It Was Then

This is from six years ago… and it still has tread, too. Bain Capital loaded up Toys r’ Us with debt and looted the store before it folded. Trump & Co chortle at this and applaud it. Vote against the Republican Party, for your very life depends on it.

With Trump & Co loudly calling for cuts to Social Security to finance giveaways to the deadbeat Affluent Effluent, what I wrote four years ago has more resonance today than it did then. The Republicans hate you and wish to rape you for the benefit of their rich paymasters. The Democrats hate you as well, and love the rich just as much, but they’ll leave us with more than what the Repugs would. Ordinary people have no option this year. As bad as the Dems are (and they ARE filthy promoters of neoliberal crapitalism), they’re better than the GOP, who’d leave us with nothing.

With all the chest-beating on the part of the American rightwing… let’s utter a home truth. American cosmonauts have to fly Russian spacecraft to the ISS as the reckless Republican filth wasted the USA’s treasure in useless land wars in Asia that didn’t advance the cause of national defence one iota and on gigantic tax cuts to corporations and to lazy wealthy scummers. That’s a fact, jack…

If you vote for the Republican Party, you vote for anti-patriotism (exporting jobs abroad and nominating cowards who refused to do military service), you vote for anti-life programmes (gutting the social safety net that unwed moms need to raise kids instead of having abortions), and you vote for Might Makes Right (bullying smaller countries and handing the country over to the Country Club Affluent Effluent Set). If you vote against them, you just might have Americans flying American spacecraft again. After all, the money for warmongering and coddling the rich has to come from somewhere…

IT COMES FROM YOU… IT COMES FROM YOUR KIDS… AND THEY DON’T GIVE A GOOD RUBY-RED GODDAMN.

Vote against the Republican scummers… God will bless you for it (and so will His Holiness… he’s a Red, and don’t you forget it!)…

22 July 2018. Things That Don’t Go Bump in the Night

________________________

There are two descriptors going the routes that are pure bullshit. One is “Cultural Marxist”; the other is “Antifa”. Neither one corresponds to reality; people shouldn’t use either.

Let’s take the first one. I’m a leftist, a Christian Marxist to be precise. I can attest that Cultural Marxism is a total and utter fabrication, an imaginary construct of the Ruling Establishment. Virtually all of those labelled Cultural Marxists are in academe, not in real life at all. Most real Marxists want nothing to do with the cultural anarchy proposed by these sorts. Mind you, I believe that we should leave people alone and not legally persecute them for their choices. However, that isn’t the same as approving societal anarchy and labelling it “good”. The so-called Cultural Marxists are mostly university-bound Ivory Tower domeheads with no influence on real-world Marxists such as Comrades Zyuganov and Xi (or on real-world leftists in general). People will do what they’ll do and we shouldn’t give them legal penalties to punish them for their choices unless they actually hurt others or use force to coerce others into their practises. I’ll assert that most “non-traditional sexual minorities” (to use Patriarch Kirill’s careful and non-judgemental phraseology) don’t hurt anyone else nor do they coerce others to follow them. We should leave them be and let them live their lives in peace. If they show proper decorum, and respect other’s contrary choices, what’s there to complain about? That goes for all parties on all sides of the question, of course.

Antifa supposedly describes the Anti-fascist Left. As a real-life anti-fascist leftist, I can attest that it doesn’t go bump in the night, either. It’s a straw-man, an imaginary will o’ the wisp. It conceals the fact that a good deal of the Radical Right is, indeed, organised and disciplined. It posits a notional left that’s equally organised and disciplined (I wish that were so, but it isn’t, sadly enough). I can assure you that most leftists never heard of Antifa until it appeared in the media about a year ago. I certainly didn’t. None of my acquaintances and associates did either. There was no such organisation, nor was there any such real-life group calling itself thus until the label first appeared in the media. It’s utter bullshit from top to bottom; it’s complete moonshine from stem to stern. I wish that we leftists were as organised as some of the Radical Right is. I truly do, it’d mean that we might be able to fight the oligarchs and their Upper Middle minions and attack-dogs more effectively. However, an organised and disciplined movement called “Antifa” doesn’t exist, nor is there any indication that it’d arise anytime soon (or anytime later, for that matter).

Don’t let the Establishment and the Right label us. Explain things to those who might listen, pay no heed to the invincibly ignorant, and oppose the actual Radical Right (the smallest group of the three I just mentioned). Just because someone reposts Radical Right material doesn’t mean that they’re Radical Righties themselves. Have a care and show some charity and discernment. Don’t turn real and potential friends into implacable and hardened enemies… that’s the real intent of the Ruling Establishment assholes who invented the trashy “Cultural Marxist” and “Antifa” concepts in the first place (it’s divide et impera at its finest). Keep it focused and sweet.

20 October 2017. What “Conservatism” Brings in Its Wake… Why No Decent Person Can Espouse It

___________________________

American Conservatism is one of the more objectively evil and positively destructive ideologies on offer. Destruction hangs like a pall all over the Northeast. The Albany region is the last gasp of the prosperity that “trickles out” from the Boswash Corridor. To the west of us, starting with Amsterdam, it looks like a war took place. A war DID take place. It was a war of the rich against the rest of us. To maximise their personal gain, they closed down vibrant industries and killed numberless communities and brought pain and beggary into millions of homes. They moved industries to compliant Third World countries and to former slaver Southern states in the USA, where they run actual sweatshops. They don’t invest in much of the USA… for that’d mean that they’d have to pay real wages and follow real regulations (even with a weakened regimen, most American regulations aren’t the Oligarch’s Bonanza Paradise of Indonesia, Mexico, and the Cayman Islands or of the neo-Confederate Kleptocracies of Texas and South Carolina).

These people feed upon the people’s misery. They don’t give a good goddamn for their fellow-man. The Republicans amongst them congratulate themselves on their “Pro-Life” stance. Isn’t that satanic and diabolic? They bloat fat on profits earned by sweating American prisoners paid less than Chinese coolie wages (the USA is the world leader in imprisonment), but they bleat about “saving babies”… whilst smiling at drone attacks, proxy wars, the Gitmo Gulag, the DHS Gestapo, and violence from racist police (not all cops are racists… but the rightwing coddles the racists amongst them). None dare call it duplicitous and malevolent…

However, that war isn’t over yet… I repeat… a spectre DOES haunt Mar-a-Lago. Reality WILL take its due.

28 March 2016. My Heartfelt Reply to Scurrilous Mudslinging

00 frog 280316

______________________________

To my readers… don’t interact with “conservatives” unless you must. If vexed, they stamp their feet, throw a tantrum, and resort to poo-flinging. I’ve found that this is invariable amongst those who label themselves “conservatives”. In short, they’re a cruel and peevish lot, best avoided. Leave handling them to thick-skinned sorts like me, who don’t expect anything but lies and hissing from their outraged ranks. As a leftist, I find “liberals” almost as bad, but their overtolerance and “labelling” (they put everyone into neat boxes… depriving them of their personality and personhood) isn’t as bad as narcissistic “conservative” mewling. Don’t ever reply to such… for my friends are still my friends… and my enemies are still my enemies. Some day, Whiteford and Dreher may understand that… but don’t hold your breath waiting…

Never let their rants abridge your behaviour… it won’t affect mine. Keep it focused and love to all of you…
