‘An old ex of mine is a whore-faced Jezebel’: A Guide to Contemporary American Discourse in the Age of Obama

I have for the most part stayed silent about the mass slaughter in Arizona on Saturday. After a few hours of Internetting, I came to the conclusion that Jared Loughner was schizophrenic, and no political motivation for his attacks, by the right or the left, should be implied until All The Facts Are In. Among the last posts on KBL, I, z’King:

  • Posted a screencap from Drudge about the incident, calling it a “sad day for the Republic”
  • Discussed the concept of “word salad” in relation to the behavior of schizophrenics
  • Wondered why we haven’t seen the man’s Facebook page
  • Posted a now-removed YouTube video that was a compilation of Tweeted death-wishes against Sarah Palin (removed by YouTube via the request of one of those wishing death on Palin – more on that later)
  • Posted Palin’s most recent Facebook message
  • Finally, I posted a link to Michelle Malkin’s site which is a compilation of vitriol, violence, hateful rhetoric and criminal action perpetrated by Leftists targeting Conservatives.

Now that the President has had his chance to speak, heal the nation, etc; and now that it is clear that, as I noted from Day 1, that the gunman was not politically motivated and thus Liberal and Conservative rhetoric is not to blame; and now that Conservatives have been smeared to the fullest degree allowed by law, I have something to share.

What follows are my thoughts on the subject, brewed and stewed since Saturday. It will indeed be vitriolic, and it most certainly will be offensive. Although many will note that only a dullard uses foul language when trying to prove a point, I forever and always insist that occasionally, carpet eff-bombing is necessary and applicable.

And wordy. Like the episode of Happy Days where Chachi accidentally sets fire to the diner, I might even bust this mother into two parts. Or three.

With that, enjoy!

He was America’s worst nightmare: Young, black and don’t give a fuck. –Menace II Society

God, of course I’m not talking about Pres. Obama! You kids and your iPods and your sexting and your Facebooks!

Oh how times have changed. Menace II Society was among a slew of films that examined the thug lifestyle and the kids who got caught up in it during the late 80s and early 90s. The line above was probably the most memorable of all those films.

Now, it appears that America’s worst nightmare is me: Single, white, Conservative, male. Wary of the Government, scornful of leftist politicians, loathing for the media, and tired of being the subject of so much rhetorical hatred: Fuck – I could snap at any minute and post an angrily-worded status update on Facebook! Or so I’m told.

I began writing a piece on Tuesday comparing the things I have in common with Jared Loughner, but stopped. There are a great many differences between us, but there are lots of things that match up. He is younger than me, but we’re both relatively young middle class white men who come from a two-parent household, are avowed atheists, dabble in what some would describe as “the occult” (I’m a Tarot reader), and finally, both of us have a history of mental illness. Mine is chronic depression with the oh-so-fun addition of paranoia, while Loughner’s appears to be paranoid schizophrenia.

The last part is key to everything else I write, because it is what has infuriated me more than anything else: when looking at Conservatives, Liberals – or at least the cream of the crop that represent themselves as Liberals that other Liberals always seem to be parroting – apparently see nothing more than paranoid schizophrenia. They see a mental illness that is uncontrollable without proper medication and detention, a disease of the brain that lets itself loose on the world and can mos-def present a threat to society.

This is how they see Conservatism. Yet, even though this is how they see Conservatism (as a mental illness, Conservatives being mentally ill) they don’t talk about us in the manner one talks about people suffering from mental illness. Instead of using empathy, care and caution, they instead firebomb us with paranoid innuendo that only the insane lament. I call it mixed-messaging.

Although there are many reasons to not trust Liberals and to also call for their public floggings when they slander the vast swath of the country with their deranged announcements, there is no better than reason than this: assuming people who disagree with you about political issues leads them to violence is a vile form of projection, and leads me to conclude that people who go on national television and “connect such dots” are themselves raving psychopaths who should be put away, or at the very least, lobotomized and sterilized.

Or lacking a needle for sterilization, castrated. On Glenn Beck’s program. In primetime.

Hard Candy-style, baby. Except, well … just watch the bloody movie already. Anyway…

“Connect the dots.” Byron York wrote an interesting piece this week about that phrase and how it’s a dog whistle of sorts for Liberals. It works like this: Liberals want to prove something that cannot be proven in any way, shape or form. So, using one of the oldest rhetorical memes on The Internet:

  • We do not like Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh – but especially Palin – and they have said and done things we find inflammatory
  • Inflammatory rhetoric leads to crazed gunmen going on shooting sprees
  • Connect the dots
  • Profit!

I thought York’s piece was clever, certainly not out of the ordinary mind-blowing, though. Then, I did something I rarely do – I tuned into “The O’Reilly Factor.” Bill was hosting a debate between two women. You could tell which one was the Conservative because she was hawt – that would be Monica Crowley. You could tell the Liberal because while vaguely attractive in that ‘she probably likes anal’ sort of way, she was still a butterface (I’ll call her Butterface for simplicity’s sake). Anyway, Bill insisted to Butterface that what Liberals have done by trying to link Conservatives with the mass murder is deplorable, and then Butterface pulled out two rhetorical tricks, one as old as Liberalism, the other apparently “uncovered” by Byron York. Here’s what Butterface did:

  • She conceded Bill’s point, to the surprise of no one, and then also to the surprise of no one, she said “…but…”
  • Then she began doing exactly what Bill said was deplorable, and she used the Profit formation from above, connecting the dots from Sarah Palin to the massacre

Unfortunately, Butterface was a low IQ Liberal (or at least lower than normal for a Liberal, which is also known as “subnormal”). How do I know? Easy:

  1. She was mildly attractive, something no truly intelligent Liberal woman is (warpigs, the lot of them) who also happens to be involved in politics at some level
  2. She actually used the phrase “connect the dots” which is something you’re not actually supposed to do when on national television reciting your talking points – it’s sort of like when Pres. Obama happens to read aloud “wait for applause” during one of his Teleprompter declarations.

Clearly, Butterface was the result of a botched abortion.

When I see Liberalism, all I see is a history of mass graves, persecution, distortion, mendacity, propaganda, deceit, manipulation, vilification, ostracization, and my favorite one: rank, perverted projection. Since Liberal Democrats hate black people – even black Liberals! – then clearly everyone else must too. Since Liberals view the world through a prism of political expediency, then everyone else must too! Since Liberals see the world one way, everyone else must too! Since Liberals like to molest children, then everyone must like molesting children! For those that don’t, they must be mentally ill, aligned with the Devil they don’t believe in, or worst of all, sincere.

Sincerity is Holy Water to the Liberal Beelzebub. It would no more occur to a public Liberal figure to be sincere than it would be for me to rape a goat. These are notions that are just incomprehensible. I wouldn’t rape – or have consensual congress – with a goat, and a Liberal public figure would never even have his mind crossed regarding sincerity. Liberals can exhibit signs of intelligence – they learn from experience, for example. When they forget to take their morning meds and are sincere, we tend to get honest quotes about wishing there would be some national tragedy to improve the President’s push polls, or when a national tragedy happens, taking comfort in salivating at the fact that the President might get a bump in the polls from said tragedy.

Their attitude regarding Pres. Obama’s “presidentiality” and “competence” is quite breathtaking. I have said a lot of horrible things about Pres. Obama (and will giddily continue to do so), but it never occurred to me that, following a national tragedy, he would get on stage in front of the mourners and deliver his speech via gangster rap. This, apparently, is what was expected from Lib/Mod/Con talkers who were so taken away by his standard speechifying – what, exactly, did they think he was going to do? Begin his speech by saying “excuse me while I whip this out” before reaching into his pants to pull out a roll of paper?

Oh, that’s right – what he always does is what was expected: construct elaborate straw men, use the word “I” a lot, perhaps reference a “slushy,” give a shout-out to a Liberal donor in the crowd, and then proceed with talking about how devastating the recent events were. Yet, even I with my blackest of hearts, did not think he would do more than two of these things, and for the most part, he didn’t.

I wrote another piece earlier this week that was my stab at dark humor, but erred on the side of good taste and didn’t publish it. This was the headline:

Democrats overjoyed that execution of nine-year-old girl, Federal judge, four others results in bump in polls for President

From there, the story is just a cut and paste job of real things real Liberals have said, from Mark Penn (former head of HRC’s failed POTUS campaign) to Mark Halperin, “reporter” for Time Magazine, a splash of death-threat Tweets from Democrats and American Liberals thrown in for fun.

This wasn’t a difficult exercise – it took about 10 minutes to compile.

This leads me to my first observation: if you’re a Conservative and convinced that Liberals want to see you dead, you don’t have to look very far for supporting evidence. Sure, if you’re an everyday Conservative like me, it’s unlikely that your everyday Liberal friends want you dead. Hardly. This is a national thing, a fame thing, a power thing, and a derangement thing.

Pres. Obama (I’ll forego the Fred-6 moniker for this piece – a whim) gave a speech in Arizona Wednesday night that has been lauded by Liberal and Conservative talking heads for some reason or another. I guess since he didn’t come out and blame Sarah Palin for the mass shooting or refer to her as a pig, there is something to rejoice in. All class, that Obama fellow. I didn’t get to watch the speech live, but I did watch it later.

Here is what struck me about the entire event: It was five days after the shooting. Other than a few brief remarks earlier in the week and a congratulatory call to the Pima County Sheriff who has done nothing but politicize the shooting on national television all week, the President waited five – count them, 5 – days to address the situation in Arizona. Kind of curious, eh?

Maybe it’s just me.

There was no threat to his life in Arizona, there were no bombs going off, no assassins still at large, no fear of impeding investigators. Seems a bit strange that during, frankly, the nastiest five days of political discourse in my lifetime, the President who promised with fingers crossed that he was the one we’d been waiting for to unite the country and shit, just plain weird that he waited so long.

As American Liberals filled with jealously that it wasn’t a Democrat doing it, George W. Bush climbed a mound of rubble in smoky lower Manhattan, grabbed a bullhorn and – wait for it – spoke off-prompter to the rescue workers. I know that’s not as sexy as the “My Pet Goat” conspiracy that still swirls, but the fact that Pres. Bush did so even though the area had not been stabilized says a great deal, or at least it did to me.

Numbskull that he was, though, Dubya forgot to have his office and/or supporters print up matching T-shirts with a catchy slogan to give to all the rescue workers before he got there.

Dumbass.

Yep, Pres. Obama is all class as he let his henchmen do his bidding for him – it takes a real man to watch the fray from above, smiling like Zeus as the Christians are fed to the lions (mixed up, I knowz). Like any good chef, the President knows that the best stew can’t be rushed, and the President is like the Iron Chef of this particular kitchen. He’s still stirring the Birther pot by refusing to release his birth certificate, even though he could any time he wanted to. Wouldn’t appease the more obsessed Birthers, but it would certainly appease a lot of people, Chris Matthews and the Democrat Governor of Hawaii among them.

Whatever happened to that guy, btw?

This particular stew couldn’t simmer that long, though, so he let nearly a week go by, a week that his supporters in the populous, in the media, on Twitter, on the op-ed pages of the nation’s barely-read newspapers, on the nightly cable shows and so on, could blame Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, the Tea Party and anyone else on whose wall their shit might stick. In the process, death threats against Palin mount, the bulk of the public doesn’t believe a word that the media is reporting, and finally the Magic Negro has swept into town, so clean and articulate, to save the day.

And hawk give away some shirts.

And relive his glory days when even the Democrat version of intelligent people worshiped him like a god.

And arch his chin while making pronouncement after pronouncement.

And just generally being a swell fucking guy.

Man, I feel a shitload better about my country now! Thanks Barack – you really aren’t just clean, you’re Mr. Clean and Articulate! That Pig Woman’s got nothing on you!

Except lipstick, of course. But who needs lipstick when you’re so clean?

And articulate?

And not a Muslim?

And totally above all the name-calling!

I get why so many Conservatives big and small are lauding to one degree or another the President’s speech. Some of them genuinely liked it, and nothing wrong with that. Others – and this is the height of cynicism, of course, even thinking this – no doubt saw it as an opportunity to praise a man they loathe in order to distance themselves from the Left’s eight-year slander of Pres. Bush – hey, didn’t we gripe and moan about the Left never saying anything nice about a GOPer POTUS? Well, here’s our chance.

Over all, I thought the speech was vanilla, and if you wonder if he could have said anything I would have liked, I say yes, and I can do it even inserting a handy straw-man:

“Over the past five days, a horrific tragedy has been sent to the sideline while a tragedy of a different nature has unfolded before our eyes. There are some out there – many of them my supporters – who have taken the opportunity, while there are others – also many of my supporters – who have wisely placed politics to the side as the nation grieves. It is my desire that in this time of national tragedy, politics be put aside.” And so on – see, he chastises some of his supporters (ie all of them) for being horrendous human beings for polticizing a national tragedy, while giving credit to other of his supporters (ie none of them ie the straw man) who don’t blame everything that is Conservative and thus wrong about the country for the tragedy.

Also, enjoy the free T-shirt.

A great critique and retort among Conservatives has come from the curiosity of so many applauses, whoops and so forth during a speech at a memorial service (my understanding was 53 applause pauses in the official transcript). The critique is that such a thing is tasteless, the retort is that the President looked uncomfortable when it happened.

Again, here’s my question: If the President was uncomfortable, then why didn’t he say after the first applause line, while nodding his head and saying thank you, “Folks, please, your warm welcome is appreciated but let’s remember that six people are dead and many others are fighting for their lives right now. This is a somber occasion, let’s treat it that way.”

And enjoy the free T-shirt.

What about those T-shirts? I’ve Googled to my heart’s content and have received mixed messages. Some say that the University where the event was held handed them out, while others say it was POTUS handlers who did so. Being that I’m feeling so forgiving, let’s assume The White House had nothing to do with the T-shirts – zero, zilch, nada.

Does anyone seriously believe that, should some local Tea Partier been inclined, the chairs in the lower tier could’ve been draped in yellow T-shirts bearing the Gadsden flag, the unofficial symbol of the Tea Party? Even if it were some overzealous Obama supporter, does anyone believe The White House could’ve objected and the shirts wouldn’t have been passed out, if it was so inclined?

Doesn’t the passing out of matching, thematic T-shirts at a memorial service honoring six people killed at the hands of a batshit gunman seem a bit … tacky?

Doesn’t it seem a bit strange that the memorial service was held on a college campus that had nothing to do with the shooting? Well, strange until you consider that the President has two rock-solid bases: one of them is half-the-same color as him, and the other goes to college.

It all starts coming together when you realize that there is nothing college students like more than Barack Obama except for free T-shirts. Putting that shit together was the best idea since that guy in the balcony dropped his chocolate into the other guy’s peanut butter.

Profit!

A quick observation regarding Conservative praise for the speech, and then I’ll moveon.org. Get it? Okay, so here is the main difference between Liberals and Conservatives, and why we Conservatives will never really win and Liberals will never really lose.

For the most part, Conservatives want the President, regardless of party, to be respected, to do a good job, to be Presidential. When I hear and read Conservatives who were pleased with his speech – Ed Morrissey’s take at HotAir being a  perfect exapmle – I see people who live by Conservative principles wanting to be proud of their President, even if he is ashamed of our country. Conservatives like feeling good about who is in office, even if those good feelings come in very small doses at very long intervals. I get that, I do.

Liberals aren’t so … kind? Naïve? Bullish? Liberals want every Democrat to succeed beyond their wildest, Politburo-concocted, Utopia that does not has not and never will exist wet dreams. With that same fanatacism, they want every non-Democrat President to fail, to be charged with war crimes, and to be murdered, preferably on television. They do not get a warm feeling inside when a Republican President does anything good. They will not cede one inch of ground. Shortly, I’ll talk about the “…but…” and “connect the dots” caveats of Liberal ground cessation, the illusion of coming together when their only real goal is to target, isolate and destroy.

I’m glad that there are Conservatives who still feel good when they think the flaming Socialist who occupies the Oval Office dun-good. I think that’s a healthy worldview, and I’m not being sarcastic.

I’m just not one of them. For every day that passes with Pres. Obama, Hell cannot grow fast enough for all the dumbfuckery his supporters spread over the airwaves, the evil which which they are proponents of, the lengths they will go to destroy their opponents (real or imagined) and the utter predictability in which they do this.

Every day that passes that Barack Obama does not explicitly call out his posse of digital pussies for their death threats, their slander, their blood-fucking-libel is a day I hold him personally responsible for the political poison that has infected this country.

There are two things Pres. Obama could do to appease me, and he will never do either:

  1. Resign
  2. Retire after one term

Lucky for him, I’m not the kind of guy who needs to be appeased in order for him to get anywhere in life, so there’s that.

Only in Liberalville could the murder of six people be seen as an opportunity, yet in Liberalville, this was like, tons of opportunities all rolled into one big ol’ball of real politik.

Jeez, sorry about that little dead girl and everything, but maybe we can pass some stricter gun control laws now. If we play our cards right, we can probably ensure Sarah Palin never goes anywhere or does anything without a security detail bigger than the Pope’s. If we really play our cards right – just sayin’, you know wink-wink-nod-nod – it would be like totally tragic if someone just up and happened to her!

I used italics to, you know, show that I was adopting a Different Voice, but I could’ve just strolled over to Twitter or Facebook and found scores – no, hundreds, even thousands – of Everday American Liberals who wished Sarah Palin were dead, that she would kill herself, that believe she had something to do with the Arizona gunman, etc. Thankfully, I purged my Facebook of such lunacy ages ago – as of today, there has been exactly one post indirectly related to the shooting itself, and it was apolitical in nature.

Anyway, I think it’s a testament to Liberalism that so many Liberals feel no guilt, shame, remorse or even concern for wishing a woman who holds zero power deader than dead. Why should they? If they’re in college, it would most likely be abnormal to not have made a joke about a dead Sarah Palin at some point. There are about five dozen Conservatives in the country who fret about the President’s birth certificate, and I think I know the names of every last one of them since the media bring them up on every slow news day.

Yet YouTube, part of the Googleverse, took down the video I’d posted earlier in the week that was just a cut-and-paste job of so many Liberals wishing death on Sarah Palin. The extreme irony – and yes, I’m using irony correctly – is the video was taken down because one of the little cunts who openly professed a desire to see Sarah Palin dead complained that her privacy rights had been violated by her Tweet being shown.

One such little cunt was Lauren B – for the sake of her privacy, I won’t give out her Twitter account information – who Tweeted:

“I think Sarah Palin should get shot [sic] instead of Giffords!!! “

Psych majors, those crazy kids! You can find her Tweet at 1:50 into the video, and I’m sure there’s zero reason why I’m so concerned for privacy that I didn’t include her Tweet handle.

She’s not particularly special, though, as along with thousands of others Tweeting and Facebooking death wishes on Sarah Palin, she is well aware that there are and there will be no consequences of such typically Liberal behavior. O stickers are soooo last year – I’m publicly hoping that Sarah Palin is murdered for 2011! Yes I Can! For her sake, I hope she doesn’t take a pregnancy with a Down syndrome child to full term, though, then there’s another thing Liberals can wish dead (hint: it’s her viable, out of the womb fetus that she might have grown attached to over the term).

So, what are we to do with the Lauren Bs of the world, the troglodytes and intellectual chuds who see scads of opportunities whenever innocent people are murdered? Since we’re not Liberals and we value human life, we not only can’t wish death on them, we wouldn’t think of it because we have a sense of right and wrong. Although I have more respect for the mentally unsound dog that occasionally eats its own shit, I still wouldn’t wish death on the dog, or a cunt like Lauren B who is the human equivalent of a dog eating its own shit.

I might disagree with a stupid cunt like Lauren B, I might be appalled that she would wish death on a fellow American on Twitter, but I wouldn’t wish her harm, certainly not death. Maybe more severe menstrual cramps, or a magical gloryhole pregnancy, but not harm, not death.

I might be a rhetorical bomb-thrower full of vitriol, but the worst I could hope for regarding Lauren B would be a nice Facebook/blowjob montage of her to show up on some random Internet board. Not saying it will happen, just think it would be, you know, funny, sort of like wishing a woman with whose politics you disagree with to be gunned down in cold blood. “She has five kids, a husband, two living parents, brothers and sisters? Fuck it – I wish she was dead, her voice annoys me and gawwwwwd, that Katie Couric interview! ZOMG!!!!”

Some people don’t think that kind of talk is funny, though.

I happen to be one of them, no matter what the person’s politics. My dilemma has always been that I’m a Conservative who takes my politics as deadly serious as the average Liberal – I don’t have special knowledge or anything of the sort, I just know that wishing people dead, jailed or silenced isn’t a Liberal wish-list, it’s part of their political playbook

Closing this part – the part about Liberals seeing opportunity in tragedy – the sickest part of this whole thing is that, for a Liberal, the best thing in the entire world would be … well, I won’t even write it.

==

To me, the appalling thing about the, er, rhetoric of the past week has been the deafening silence from Conservative politicians around the country regarding Palin specifically, or worse still, the chance to pile on, especially among more moderate Conservatives. T-Paw was sort of cornered into knocking Palin, but he wisely and quickly walked it back, so he gets a pass in my book. Chris Christie took the opportunity to engage in some Palin-bashing, and there have been plenty of others.

The real infuriation comes when having listened to four days of RINOs bitching about Palin not defending herself, she then presented a seven-minute statement defending herself and was slammed for “not being Presidential.”

Mental note to send via my powers of brain-wavery: She’s not the fucking President.

Yeah-yeah, I know I know I know – “You yourself have said she’s running, so shouldn’t she at least act Presidential?”

So here’s the deal – I’ve read a lot of Conservative writers I love comment on this dillemma, and while there are variations on the same basic principle, mine is slightly askew. First, no person “running for President” has ever been implicated without a shred of evidence in somehow being responsible for a crazed gunman trying to assassinate a sitting Congressman and killing six others in the process. Remember, the sitting sheriff of Pima County has been on national television ad nauseum implicating Palin as part of the shooter’s motive (this would be the same sheriff the President called to thank for the great job he’s doing). So, this is sort of different right off the bat – I think the fancy word is unprecedented. I’m still trying to figure out if Sarah Palin has a libel case on her hand from all those liberals connecting all those dots.

The “not Presidential” canard is the most subversive of the red herrings that have spawned this week. Remember, we have a President whose skin is so thin he calls out private citizens by name who disagree with him and whose best retort to reasoned argument is “I won.” His humble response to his deranged preacher shouting about chickens and the U-S-of-KKK was to give a soaring speech that is remembered for nothing other than calling his grandmother a typical white person. So, before we started waxing on and off about whose Presidential, let’s remember whose President first, shall we?

Second, I think its telling that most Liberals and more GOPers than is palatable think that the best way for a Conservative icon to handle the implication that she was somehow responsible for the tragedy in Arizona is to sit back and take it like a rape victim. Make no mistake – that is exactly what this is. For five days, Palin’s dignity, reputation and humanity has been skull-fucked into Never-Never Land, yet a barrage of Friendly Commentary had the gall to point out that her response “wasn’t Presidential,” a curious sentimeng coming from a flock of people who have insisted she has not a chance in hell of winning in the first place. Sort of like saying “That rape victim could’ve been sexier after the trial, no?”

So, if she has no chance of winning and she’s the fucking idiot that they would have us believe, why should she be Presidential? I don’t like comparing Obamas to Palin, but it seems to me like showing up on national television as the President of the United States wearing a T-shirt, flip-flops and jams isn’t exactly Presidential either and he’s like, you know, the President and stuff.

The only reason she had to respond at all is that the Conservative media – blogs do not fucking count – didn’t do its job and on-air lambaste, ridicule and shout down every fucking Liberal who started connecting goddamn dots. “So Butterface, we were talking in the green room before we came on air about The Grand Mesa Golf Resort in Arizona and your vacation there. Since we know you’ve been to Arizona, why didn’t you talk Jared out of shooting all those people after you getting the taste of his semen out of your mouth?”

Dead air.

Let me ask you: would that be any more/less appropriate than what has been said about Palin over the past week, not even including the death threats and assassination ideation?

Let us imagine, for a moment, that a booking agent at CNN smoked a heavy dose of crack and put me on air opposite, I dunno, Rick Sanchez. In this surreal scenario, imagine the following exchange playing out.

SANCHEZ: But Mr. King B, if that is your real name, wouldn’t you agree that Goveronor Palin’s rhetoric has been inflammatory.

KING B: Rick – may I call you Rick? – would you agree that Islam is a religion of Peace?

SANCHEZ: What does that have-

KING B: So you’re saying it’s not, or-

SANCHEZ: But back to Pal-

KING B: Here’s my point. Islam is a religion of Peace. Pres. Obama is definitely not a Muslim. So, connecting the dots, one thing is clear: Pres. Obama is responsible for 9/11.

See what I did there? If you followed that logic, you are either:

a)      A member in good standing of the New York Times editorial board or

b)      Crazier than Jared Loughner and his alleged fuck-buddy, Lauren B (rumor has it, Lauren…)

This construction, this Tower of Jabberwocky, is what Sarah Palin is left to respond to or ignore. How would I, for example, defend myself from the accusation, repeated thousands of times in a brief period, that I didn’t rape seven nurses while I was in college? I didn’t, but how could I prove it? Even worse, how could I not prove it when there has been zero reported rapes of nurses since I left college (of course, no one mentions that no nurses were raped while I was at college, or when it is mentioned, they add …that we’re aware of…)

She is not in a lose-lose situation, she is in the early stages of what happens when Liberals feel free to say and do what they think without regard to anything other than the advancement of their diseased ideology. That’s it. Palin is the fastest, easiest target who also poses – for whatever reason I’m no longer sure – the greatest threat to their advancement of power. Liberals, without regard to truth, common decency, journalistic standards, basic ethic or human dignity, finally believe they have seen the light at the end of tunnel, and short of actually murdering Sarah Palin, they’ve gone all in with the Palin is Responsible for the Arizona Tragedy Meme.

The best part? They’ve already gotten away with it.

How do I know? To the final part…

==

The meme has stuck, and there is nothing Palin can do about it. Zero, nada, zilch. I hope I’m wrong, but I’m not – she is no longer electable. Many will laugh and say, ‘my dear boy, she never was!’ but I don’t care what they think. The same people who crowed that her days in the spotlight were over when she resigned as the Governor of Alaska have zero credibility when it comes to Palin.

Oh, I’ll continue to support her in all her endeavours, but my cause has officially become the Rhett Butler School of Political Causes. I’ll go down with the ship, assuming it’s actually sailing somewhere now. I think Palin was running for President – I think now she might be reconsidering. How could she not? Maybe she’ll reload – I dunno, I hope she does, but I wouldn’t blame her if she didn’t.

The sickly part of this is we have now set a precedent of sorts: if Palin pulls back, quits, etc, Liberals will know for certain that all they have to do is take slander far enough and eventually, some RINOs, Moderates and yes, Conservatives will join in to save face, and ultimately, the Conservative who won’t back down will be forced to back down, whether or it’s for fear for her life, reputation, livelihood or …

As the meme goes: none of us are as dangerous as all of us.

The digital crucifixion of Sarah Palin is becoming complete. It’s a Liberal wet dream, coming packaged with the President giving a purdy speech, a crowd dressed in matching primary color T-shirts, Palin being called unpresidential by fellow Republicans, and a crazy Democrat sherrif still going around lambasting American Conservatives for causing a tragedy they had nothing to do with.

Although I sound like every Liberal every time the President’s skin color is mentioned, I now fear for the safety of Gov. Palin and her family, for the word has indeed gone out: nothing is off limits when it comes to what can be said on national television and written in national publications about Sarah Palin. She is officially fair game in every sense of the word – there is no rule that applies to her, not a rule of decency, morality, ethics, fair play, party affiliation, nothing, nada, zippo.

The tone is now set: if there is a Republican who will not play ball, abide by the rules, give mad props to the President when signaled to do so and – most importantly – have the gall to speak and behave as a Conservative, then nothing is off limits. True Conservatives must be brought down at any cost.

There are a few Liberals who have objected, but not many, Kirsten Powers being the most notable. Here’s what’s notable about that: only newshounds even know who Kirsten Powers is.

In closing, we now have the template for how things will be. Liberals have gotten away with far more than they possibly could have imagined, and I honestly don’t think even they realize the feat they have pulled off: by offering anything other than full-throated support for Sarah Palin regarding the slanders and her response to them; and complete, unqualified condemnation of every scurrilous Liberal like that has been offered, even the most well-intentioned Conservatives have served notice that at the end of the day, they ultimately will go along to get along.

As for me and my own brand of rhetoric, I’ll continue to do what I do, save for giving any Liberal public figure any benefit of any doubt. What I say doesn’t matter in the least, but the days of dealing with Liberalism and its chief proponents in good faith have passed.

It is one thing to be raped, but it’s quite another to be told how much you liked it. The sanction of the victim is the most powerful aphrodisiac in the known world, and if Conservatives plan on regaining any power in this country, they better quit giving it out for free.

    Re: Obama’s Speech, I thought it was exactly the sort of speech a President should give after a tragedy like that, hence it was a good speech, although should have been a little shorter. I honestly thought we’d hear something political about gun control. HRC would have said something about gun control if she was POTUS. I’m sure Obama had speechwriters who desperately wanted to throw that in there, so kudos to him for not doing it. I don’t have a problem saying he did a good thing, and in times of tragedy I think that is common for both sides. Bush had 90% approval immediately after 9/11, and I’m sure that wasn’t because all the lefties temporarily changed thier political beliefs. So next week Obama can go back to being a sorry SOB in my book, but this week he surprised me by being better than I expected.

    Re: the t-shirts, that was just weird.

    Re: the attitude of the crowd, I loved it. It was almost like they were saying Fuck You to being a bunch of somber sad sacks due to the actions of a madman, a bunch of cynical politicians, and a media run by the bitchesone of those “Housewives Of”

    Re: Palin, she was treated ruthlessly, but when you run an add that puts a district in crosshairs, and a rep from that district is shot, you are gonna be treated ruthlessly. For most politicians this would be one of those attacks that “is beneath my dignity to respond to” and people who keep pushing it end up looking like morons (like Obama and his birth certificate). Palin’s problem is that she responds to everything, and it would have been conspicuous not to respond to this too. It was a classic lose/lose situation for her, and probably one the libs will figure out ways to repeat.

    As for her POTUS prospects, I don’t think this changes her chances for the primary much, and I’ve never considered her to have any chance to win the general.

    Rush talked about this today, and RedState goes into it as well. From RedState:

    “The Tucson event was billed as a memorial to those wounded and those slain on Saturday by a deranged Marx-reading madman. While the President appeared to do his best to set a tone of reconciliation to the divisiveness and rancor his supporters and the media had caused (and are still causing) throughout the week since the shooting, the origin of the “Together We Thrive!” slogan was revealed to be nothing more (and nothing less) than a theme stolen from the Obama for America 2008 campaign—and, more importantly, the message behind the posting was one of those Marxist, Collectivist dribblings that is the cause of so much criticism from the Right over the past two years.”

    This wasn’t a memorial, it was a campaign stop. The shouting and hooting should have been stopped by the POTUS – this was a memorial for, among other, a dead child. These people are scum, plain and simple. I will not give them the benefit of the doubt, nor be swayed by their theatrics.

    We’ll never agree on Palin, and that’s fine – my views are fairly stony on the subject. However, this notion of responding to everything, well, she was getting lambasted for not responding, and then she’s lambasted for responding. Yes, it’s a lose-lose. I look forward to Conservatives holding Democrats to the same standards they reserve solely for Sarah Palin. Maybe if another GOPer will take a Conservative stand on one fucking thing in the coming months, we can test that.

    When the GOP nominates what ever weak tea candidate that is sent to the slaughter, I hope all remember the spinelessness that was exhibited in the non-rush to defend Sarah Palin and vis-a-vis American Conservatism writ large from all of this.
