Authoritarians with a Conscience

My ego is finally coming out of it's last stages of grief, 'bout time. But hey, it is what it is. My head has been clear as a result, and allowed me to think in ways not possible during my "anger" stage. More specifically, I'm understanding the vile and hyper-aggressive lunatic fringe of the Obama supporters who's hate for Hillary Clinton has reached galactic proportions. I'm not concerned as much with where they came from, that question has never attracted my attention. What did, though, was an ire awareness that I knew these people, but I didn't at the same time.

Since it is too hot outside, and I've let the kiddos commandeer the television (I almost trashed it during my "anger" stage), I checked the bookshelf for anything I'd bought but had not read, and there found my answer. John W. Dean's Conservatives without a Conscience. I wasn't very far into re-reading it when I realized why, what I call "Obamazooids", seemed so familiar. It was not because of the mean wingnut tactics they used, which I just took as smug childishness, It was more than that. Dean asks Bob Altemeyer, who has shed a great deal of light on the right-wing authoritarian, if there was any such thing on the left. "I have tried to discover the left-wing authoritarian, whom I suspect exists, but apparently in very small numbers." Altemeyer replied. Well, Mr. Altemeyer, I think we've found them, and their numbers are growing.

While not all of the traits posed by the right-wing authoritarians that Altemeyer described could be attributed to the Obamazooids, for obvious reasons, but there is one question I knew they would answer "YES!" to. The right-wing authoritarian version...

Our country desperately needs a mighty leader who will do what needs to be done to destroy the new ways sinfulness that are ruining us.

Edited for the modern left-wing authoritarian...

Our country desperately needs a mighty leader who will do what needs to be done to destroy the neocons' agenda that is ruining us.

I'm asserting, here, that the Obamazooids would give a quick "Hell yes we do!" adding "...and his name is Barack Obama!" My quick answer would be "Hell no!" adding "...if the American people would just get off their fat asses and vote their conscience we could weed out the assholes!" Don't get me wrong, Obama is no authoritarian, but some of his followers are.

The truth is I've never had much use for "leaders", and I've never felt the urge to be one, either. In fact, the times in my life where I had to take charge and lead, it annoyed me. I just don't understand why some otherwise intelligent adults can't get through life without instructions from religious/political/economic leaders, we should be the ones giving our political heroes their instructions, not the other way around. Right-wing authoritarians are extreme hypocrites in this aspect. They claim Liberals have no individual responsibility just for having social responsibility, when they couldn't tie their own political shoes without dear leader's help (notice how they've been running around like chickens with their heads cut off with no clear leader?) The Obamazooids, on the other hand, are authoritarians with a conscience. At least they want to do the right thing.

Now, I'm not saying the Obamazooids are anything like classic communists, just that it is a distinct possibility that if this group got too big and powerful, we would have a lot of trouble on our hands. And, of course, I'm not saying they are any kind of "evil" just for being left-wing authoritarians (except, so far, in regards to attacking the Clintons). My point is we need to keep this country as close to the Liberal assertions on the Declaration of Independence as possible, but as far away from whatever authoritarian faction presents itself. They're all dangerous.

Special Comment for Benedict Olbermann

I know your hate relieves you of the fact that you are a Benedict Arnold, but history wont. I like Obama and will vote for him, but I will never respect you again, or the rest of you on the Obamazooid fringe. You don't give a shit, for sure, but one day you are going to need a bridge. This one's burnt.


How dare you. Sir. The only way to defeat her was to reverse her strengths, the same way the wingnuts did to Kerry and his military record. So you portrayed her as a racist. And it worked. The velocity of the accusations and the strength of their perceptions has proven to be overwhelming. Congratulations, you win.

So you have forgiven and forgiven her over and over again, huh Keith? But this time the bitch said something unforgivable? So she's getting kicked to the curb once and for all, right? What were your words? Oh yeah, "TOO MUCH!"

You pugnacious piece of shit. The Clintons were Liberal when Liberals weren't cool. You jump on the bandwagon after all the grunt work has been done and now claim they were failures? Shorter Keith: "Get out of the way old-timers, we'll take over now...that it's easy." Oh, wait. You don't like "Liberal", you're "progressive". LOL! Stupid Wimp.

She never has been and never will be a George Wallace, you fucking cocksucker. She will, as I, continue working for the Liberal values that have pushed our country toward a morally just society since the beginning, but I'm going to spit in your face every time I get a chance, Benedict Obermann.

Memo to David Corn: Eat Shit and Die Asshole

Just who the fuck do you think you are, ass-wipe? There are millions of women with legitimate beefs about Obama and his supporters that we need to vote Democratic in the general, and how do you try and win over their good graces? By telling them to "Get Over It". You fucking shit stain. What? Do you want the Democrats to lose? Maybe you do, so you can write a book about how out of touch American women are or something. If you do want us to win, then why write an article about Clinton's female supporters where you use terms like "I know it's tough to be rejected", "because she's a dame", "So gals for Clinton" and "end up stuck in a bad relationship"?

You are either a social retard or a slimy dirt bag. I swear to God, if you were in front of me after I read the tripe you wrote I would have punched you in the fucking face. Eat shit and die, asshole.

Sure as Hell ain't our War

We suck so hard. Can't stop the war, but are so indifferent to those who have to bear the burden again and again. Hope you're ashamed, you should be. What happened to all the Patriots? Most sold their soul for tax cuts, or conformities, or both. There ain't a collective hair on Americas' ass. Soon we'll be buying our troops from Wal-Mart. We suck. You disagree? Then prove me wrong, Einstein...

Michael Goldfarb...

So many dumbasses, so little time...

As to whether Bush is a recruiting tool for terrorists--who cares? Al Qaeda was recruiting before Bush was in office and they will continue to do so after he's gone. The important thing is that we keep killing those recruits. Eventually, one side will give up. And if Obama wins in November, we know which side that will be.

Who cares? Fuck you asshole, we all should care. If you can't see how individuals joining Al Qaeda because of U.S. influence is a bad thing, then you're just retarded. But I guess keeping terrorists numbers high so we can kill them is keeping you in business, so no sweat off your nuts, chickenhawk. I know the 25%ers out there will buy your argument, but the rest of us think you are a retard, Michael.
