11 March 2017. My Thoughts on Politics

____________________________________

Yes… politics is a serious business… it’s why we have to keep Liberal extremists like “conservatives” and “liberals” (taken together, they make up “neoliberalism”) from power. Actually, One Nation Conservatism (Red Toryism) and Socialism have much in common. The USA never had conservatism, as it was a Radical Republic (in Continental European terms) from the outset. The USA never had a Conservative leader such as Otto von Bismarck, P A Stolypin, Aleksandr III Aleksandrovich, or Dief the Chief. It’s only had oligarch-loving and money-grubbing Liberals (“conservatives”). No… by its very nature, foundation, and history, the USA is INCAPABLE of Conservatism. Yes, Marine le Pen and Viktor Mihály Orbán are Conservatives… Trump, Ryan, McConnell, Hannity, Buchanan, and Dreher emphatically are NOT such. You can’t be Conservative and believe in the power of money and rule by the One Percent. Do note that all American “conservatives” do so. Oh, yes… Conservatives believe in universal single-payer healthcare, a strong state-funded social safety-net, and a vigorous defence of the environment. “Conservatives” don’t… they’re in favour of greed and rapine by the rich… the country, society, and nature be damned. No similarities between Conservatives and “American Conservatives”, is there?

Keep it focused… don’t call Radical Liberals “conservatives”… what does that tell you about those who do so? Not very bright, are they?

5 March 2017. Why All Decent People Must Oppose “Conservatism” With ALL Their Might

____________________________________

The “conservatives” slobber “religious” rhetoric at every opportunity. They lie. No decent person can support American “conservatism”… it’s a feral and demonic worldview based on greed, hypocrisy, and lust for power. What’s worse is that they garb it in “religious” vesture. That’s blasphemy. You can stand with the heretic Franklin Graham or you can stand with HH… I think that it’s no surprise that I stand with our Holy Patriarch and his stance against “conservative” greedsterism (after all, he did send sincere condolences to the Castro family when his good friend Commandante Fidel died). Orthodoxy has never been “conservative”… it isn’t “conservative”… it shall never be “conservative”. That’s the way of it… as it was, as it is, as it ever shall be! None dare calls it evil… although it is. Mark down well who does support such… they spit in Our Lord Christ’s very face and trample on His icon full-force. “When you did this to the least of these, My brethren, you did it unto Me”… indeed…

5 March 2017. Why Do the Republicans Hate Syria and Decent Muslims? Why Do They LOVE the KSA and Radical Islamists?

00-syria-soldier-cross-koran-050317

___________________________________________

The Neoliberals (both “liberals” and “conservatives” alike) hate decent Muslim lands like Syria and support radical anti-Christian Islamists like the KSA. The Democrats are bad in this, but the Repugs are far worse. They kiss the naked ass of the Saudis for all to see, in the most humiliating ways possible. The USA refuses to stick up for the rights of the Christian “guest workers” in the KSA. IT REFUSES… so all the Repug talk of helping Christians in the Middle East is bootless and airy propaganda for the stupid and credulous. If one doesn’t stand up for the oppressed Christians in the KSA, then, one is a hypocritical poseur if one screams about “persecuted Christians in the Middle East”.

Don’t forget… the neoliberals (both Dems and Repugs) supported and abetted the terrorist Bin Laden… they both attacked Libya and Iraq for no cause whatsoever (except for the fact that Iraq and Libya were socialist states that gave their oil wealth to the people, not American fatcat oligarchs). Now, they want you to hate Syria for no good reason. Don’t fall for it.

Blame Russia, Avoid Self-Criticism

00 Vitaly Podvitsky. The Russians Did It All! 2016

____________________________________

Arrogant liberals’ partisan hypocrisy, overlaid with heavy doses of bourgeois identity politics and professional-class contempt for working-class whites, is no tiny part of how and why the Democrats handed all three branches of the federal government along with most state governments and the white working-class vote to the ever more radically reactionary white-nationalist Republican Party. Ordinary people can smell the rank two-facedness of it all, believe it or not. They want nothing to do with snotty know-all liberals who give dismal Dollar Dems a pass on policies liberals only seem capable of denouncing when nasty Republicans enact them. Contrary to my online rant, much of the liberal Democratic campus-town crowd seems to feel if anything validated… yes, validated, of all things… by the awfulness of Herr Trump. It exhibits no capacity for shame or self-criticism, even in the wake of their politics having collapsed at the presidential, Congressional, and state levels.

A media-fed mania for citing dubious reports from the “intelligence community” to blame Trump’s victory on alleged Russian interference in “our [purported great] democracy” assists that egregious failure. Screaming, “Russia did it” whilst citing the CIA (of all sources) is apparently liberals’ favourite new way of avoiding any serious confrontation with how their corporate and imperial party of choice (the dismal demobilising Dollar Democrats) opened the barn door to Trump and the GOP. The formula is this:

Say “Russia elected Trump” along with racism, sexism, and “stupid uneducated white people”, and feel both confirmed and superior. Resume your privileged life as usual, protesting on occasion in pink pussy hates and hoping for the presumed friends of democracy in the arch-authoritarian Deep State to unseat Trump from above.

Along the way, liberals are aiding and abetting an authoritarian threat even worse than the quasi-fascistic (though thankfully incompetent) orange-haired beast and his band of slimy billionaires and white-nationalist swamp creatures. I don’t share Glenn Greenwald’s hope that the Democratic Party will restore itself as an “effective political force”, or his sense that such restoration would be the most important way to resist Trump or even his belief that Trump was “democratically elected”. Still, even with those significant qualifications, I must for the most part heartily endorse his following recent comments on Democracy Now!:

The Trump presidency is extremely dangerous. They want to dismantle the environment. They want to eliminate the safety net. They want to empower billionaires. They want to enact bigoted policies against Muslims and immigrants and so many others. It’s important to resist them. There are lots of really great ways to resist them, such as getting courts to restrain them, citizen activism, and, most important of all, having the Democratic Party engage in self-critique to ask itself how it can be a more effective political force in the USA after it’s collapsed on all levels. That isn’t what this resistance is now doing. What they’re doing instead is trying to take maybe the only faction worse than Donald Trump, which is the Deep State, the CIA, with its histories of atrocity, and say they ought to almost engage in like a soft coup, where they take the elected president and prevent him from enacting his policies. Moreover, I think it’s extremely dangerous to do that. Even if you’re somebody who believes that both the CIA and the Deep State, on the one hand, and the Trump presidency, on the other, are extremely dangerous, as I do, there’s a huge difference between the two, which is that Trump was democratically elected and is subject to democratic controls, as these courts just demonstrated, as the media is showing, as citizens are proving. On the other hand, nobody elected the CIA. They’re barely subject to democratic controls at all. Therefore, to urge that the CIA and the intelligence community empower itself to undermine the elected branches of government is insanity. That’s a prescription for destroying democracy overnight in the name of saving it. Yet, that’s what so many, not just neocons, but the neocons’ allies in the Democratic Party, are now urging and cheering. It’s incredibly warped and dangerous to watch them do that.
