The truth is eternal

November 7th, 2016

Anybody remember a great old crime drama/soap opera called Wiseguy? I spent a chunk of yesterday afternoon watching a few episodes, including the one in which this brilliant soliloquy was included:

VINNIE: Now I want an answer: How do you go from Medal Of Honor to mercenary? At what point do you kiss off the nation for these dirty little wars?

ROGER: I live in a thicket infested by zealots bent on the bloodletting of this nation. They raise a glass of sake to the rising sun and plummet Zeros filled with dynamite into our fathers. They beat themselves with chains until they arrive at a narcotized state, then they shout “Allaahh!” and drive truckloads of explosives into our brothers. They thump Marxist manifestos like some backwater evangelist and carve away half of Europe, enslaving our cousins. Now they want what we have, but they don’t want to arrive at it by initiative, they want it by insurrection. These are the residents of Mr Loccoco’s neighborhood. It’s a scum-ridden place to live, but I live there to stop them. I don’t see myself as kissing off this nation; I see myself as protecting it.

Amazing how the more things change, the more they stay the same, ain’t it? What’s even more amazing is that such a home-truth-filled speech ever made it onto TV in the first place.

    Hey! The guy who played Vinne, Ken Wahl, is a strong conservative in real life. Good juju.

    Trump did it. I'm thinking something along the lines of Game of Thrones must be going through the heads of the #NeverTrump cucks.
