Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Topsy turvy world

Okay, let me see if I have all this straight. Bill Clinton, a white Southerner, was the first black president. Obama, an apparently straight guy, is the first gay president. George Zimmerman, a Hispanic, is a white guy. Elizabeth Warren, the whitest white woman anybody ever saw, is an Injun.

Andrew Sullivan, a liberal, considers himself the last “true conservative.” The Democrat Socialists, left-wingers to a fault, consider themselves “centrist” or “moderate,” and Mitt Romney, who is a liberal, is a “right-wing extremist.” Of course, Mittens calls himself a “severe conservative,” although nobody really believes it. Not even the Democrat Socialists.

The overwhelming majority of people who call themselves “journalists” actually function as advocates, while laughably declaiming their unbiased impartiality to anyone gullible enough to buy it. Violent OWS revolutionaries are “mostly peaceful.” Layabouts who collect government benefits are “hard-working Americans,” and people who actually want to work but can’t find a job in the Obama Depression and have abandoned all hope aren’t even counted as unemployed at all. More than three straight years of economic stagnation in the Obama Depression is some kind of “recovery,” and as for the real people whose lives have been marred by the inevitable and predictable result of Obama’s muttonheaded policies, “you’d think they’d be saying thank you.”

Families of four who make a combined 250k a year are “the rich,” and the top one percent of income earners who actually pay the overwhelming majority of taxes aren’t paying “their fair share” and “have no skin in the game.” Hollywood rich people worth bajillions perfectly comprehend the travails of workaday Americans and portray them with unfailing accuracy in movies and on TV, but Romney, who actually has done useful work and created lots of jobs in his life, is “out of touch.” And those same rich Hollywood pigs squeal “tax me more!” but never, ever avail themselves of an existing IRS program that affords them the opportunity to pay as much as they like, anytime they feel like taking advantage of it.

The people who rule us with an iron fist, governing against the clearly-expressed will of the people as often as not, are “public servants.” Fossil fuels, of which America has more than any other nation in the world, are “unsustainable,” while unworkable and expensive alternatives like solar and electric cars are what we should be relying on instead. Windmills, which date back to the 15th century or thereabouts, are the way of the future. Just as “progressive” ideas, which have been toxifying the body politic for more than a hundred years now and were not only precursors to fascism (now assumed to be a “right-wing” phenomenon, even though it was implemented and advocated mostly by left-wingers) but representative of some of the worst instincts of the feudal era, are “new” and “forward-thinking” and…well, progressive.

There’s no one more illiberal than a liberal; “shut up, he explained” is the operational philosophy of the very people who claim to be more tolerant and open-minded than the folks whose dissent (which is patriotic, except when it’s expressing disagreement with proposals that run counter to the ideas of the Founders) they’re trying their level best to stifle.

Yeah, Mark, I’d say that in a country that’s managed to get its collective head this far up its collective ass, you should go ahead and apply. And if you don’t get it, as a minority, you oughta sue for discrimination.

  1. Orwell would be SO proud of present-day public-policy/political discourse. We need a “Cold Fury” endowed Chair of Political thought somewhere–tho I can’t think off-hand of a Univ that doesn’t have a lefty faculty that would collectively stroke-out at the thought….SAAYYYY..

  2. Obama, an apparently straight guy, is the first gay president.

    Dude, are you kidding me? “Apparently” is most definitely the operative word here. Google “Obama Man’s Country” and you’ll find out more than you cared to know about Obummer’s sexual proclivities.

    “Straight,” my ass.

  3. So you’re saying Moochelle does him with a strap-on?

    Sorry, I didn’t mean to plant that horrible image in your brains.

    Other than that Orwell was spot on but just a few years early.

  4. Remember the Bill Murray movie “Groundhog Day” where every morning he wakes up and it’s the same Groundhog day over and over & over again? I feel like this whole country has fallen into a similar fate, only instead of Ground Hog day, it’s Opposite Day.
    God help us.

  5. In 2004 conservatives said that you should not vote for a wealthy arrogant gun grabbing, flip-flopping Massachusetts liberal. In 2012 conservatives say that a wealthy arrogant gun grabbing, flip-flopping Massachusetts liberal is the only choice.

  6. Once again, I would merely point out that it is your fine friends in “Law Enforcement” who have forced us where we are today.
