Prophet451 on the Democratic Underground.

The guy just became my new hero.

[I am posting it in its entirety too it is brilliant and I want you to read the whole thing but please visit :::Democratic Underground::: too.]


Dear Republicans,

Fuck you. No, I’m not joking. I’m sick of this bullshit.

I’m sick of the way you’ve corrupted the public discourse. The way you’ve made it acceptable to hurl any insult you like at public officials. The way you blame us for the current atmosphere of hatred by accusing us of starting it with hating Bush. Like Bush didn’t come on the heels of eight years of your tireless efforts to destroy Clinton by any means necessary, like Bush didn’t give us good reason to complain. A couple of posters on a website compared Bush to Hitler and you’ve used it as free license to compare Obama to Hitler 24/7 and I’m sick of your hypocrisy, where it’s acceptable to say shit about Obama that you would have had an apopletic fit (and did) if anythign remotely similar had been said about your guys. Keith Olbermann calls Cheney a fascist when he was actually using fascist tactics and you think that gives you the freedom to call Obama a fascist, socialist, Marxist constantly for no reason at all. Fuck you and your bullshit false equivelancy.

I’m sick of the way you’ve made the populace stupid. Around a fifth of your populace thinks the sun orbits the earth, over half think evolution never happened. Your populace actually believe the media has a liberal bias. Not because it has, you have the most conservative media in the free world, but because you’ve shouted it so loud and so often that you’ve brainwashed the public into believing it, like the battered wife who parrots her husband’s insults. You’ve got a whole segment of the populace shouting about socialism and fascism and none of them know what the fucking words mean. You’ve convinced them that fascism is a left-wing thing. You’ve got them so turned around that some of them actually believe global warming isn’t happening. Fuck you.

I’m sick of the way you try to destroy the whole concept of government. You’ve tricked the people into believing that government can’t do anything right, always being careful to exclude the army because you love your bullets and bombs but you’ve so destroyed the public’s ability to reason that they don’t even think of interstate highways, the space program, the national parks program, etc. Government is always great when it’s doing what you tell it and inevitibly corrupt when it isn’t. Fuck you.

I’m sick of your rewriting of history. You’ve bleated so loud and long that Reagan was a great president, that the New Deal didn’t work, that cutting taxes increases revenues, that you actually have the people believing this bullshit. And these are the same people who will go on to become teachers and fill their student’s heads with this self-same bullshit. Reagan was a mediocre president at best who had teh good fortune to be in power when the USSR collapsed under it’s own weight and you bastards have turned him into teh Second Coming. You’ve rewritten history so that everything foul and hateful and wrong can be attributed to a Democrat while everything worthwhile is a Republican’s glory. Fuck you.

I’m sick of your dragging the centre ever further to the right. How many whackjob fringe ideas have you dragged into the mainstream? The aforementioned idea that tax cuts increase revenues, the Laffer Curve, the idea that Welfare harms the poor, the idea that there’s rampant fraud in Welfare, the idea that whatever is good for corporations is good for the country. And you push these ideas through your corporate media and you do it so long and loud that they become part of the accepted political landscape and because it is easier to tell a lie than to debunk one, we never get away from this rancid shit. Fuck you.

I’m sick of your casual criminality. Teddy Kennedy, a man who’s boots you were not worthy to lick, was just buried and all I’ve heard from my rightist friends for days is Chappaquidick, Chappaquiddick, Chappaquidick. Your fucking golden boy raped the Constitution, mainly because he wanted to; tortured random people (and waterboarding is torture, fuck you too) essentially because he wanted to; spent like a drunken sailor, essentially because he wanted to; invaded a soverign nation, essentially for the loot and destroyed people’s lives, essentially for the evilulz and you bastards are obsessed with a fucking accident a Democrat had decades ago? You don’t go on about Laura Bush killing some guy decades ago. Fuck you.

I’m sick of you praising pure evil. You’re letting Dick Cheney be the standard-bearer for Republicanism. Dick Cheney, a man so nakedly evil that even his friends call him “Darth”; a man so callous that Lex Luthor would recoil in terror; a man who probably has dismembered hitchhikers in those man-sized safes and kills plants by his mere proximity. Fuck you.

I’m sick of your attempts to tilt the playing field permanently in your favour. Democrats filibustered a few of Bush’s most hateful judicial picks and you pricks started screaming about doing away with the filibuster but now you’re in the minority, you’re filibustering absolutely everything you can and whining when you don’t get the chance. You ignored everything the Democrats had to say when you had power and now that you don’t, you scream that everyone must be bipartisan. You don’t budge a fucking inch on anything but you insist that everyone must compromise to meet you. That’s your idea of politics: Don’t move an inch, force the other guy to come to the right to meet you and call the result a “compromise”. Fuck you.

I’m sick of your corporatism. You dress it up in false populism but anyone with half a brain can see that you’re the brought and paid for subsidiary of big business. You keep pushing tax cuts as the answer for absolutely everything, you keep sabotaging every attempt to control the excesses of big business. You geuinely think the world would be a better place if it was a combination of Bill Gibson’s dystopian vision of a corporate dominated world and Ayn Rand’s bullshit Objectivism, yet another entry in mankind’s endless attempts to find a moral justification for naked greed. You’ve taken the clinically insane spewings of a woman literally to the right of Hitler (pardon my Godwins) and the 1984-like vision of a dystopian author and convinced yourselves that would be a good place to live. Big business is the enemy of the people, always has been. The ideal for the corporate class is to have a small pool of people rich enough to buy their fucking crap and a much larger pool of people so poor and with so few options that they can be used and abused at the corporation’s whim. A corporation’s objective is not to look after you, it is to make ever-larger profits by any means necessary. You bastards want to reinstate fucking slavery to the corporate class and you’ve made the public so fucking stupid that they actually swallow the bullshit you’re serving up, they actually want to enslave themselves to the corporations that abuse them at every turn. They actually care more about the corporations right to make obscene profits than they care about their child’s right to live on a habitable planet. Fuck you.

Fuck you, you scumridden shitehawks, you make me sick. Just fuck off and die.

  1. Wow? WOW.

    I would love to see an intelligent rebuttal to this rant du jour but somehow I doubt the Repubs can string together words as eloquentlyand poignantly without fictitious smearing.

    Forwarding it to ALL my friends.

  2. max

    Cool, forward like mad. It should be seen and read. A LOT.

  3. I love the Democratic Underground- they had a string going on about David Tennant- it was awesome.

    In addition,the posts there are great- this is one of the cool ones for sure. I’m going to have to go back again and start reading it more.

    Like I’ve said before, the Republican Party has become anti-intellectual. Logic, reason, sense have all fled the party and been replaced by the idea that Genesis was fact and America is number one regardless of what it does because God is on our side.

    Welcome to the modern Nazi Party.

    Fork, I think using the fringe element is going to be problematic for the Republican party. Some animals, once aroused, are very difficult to control.

    Anita, no! I missed a David Tennant thread? I do not know the site well, I found it because I was looking for the origin of that rant, I saw it reposted somewhere else and tracked it back. I have to read more there.

  6. I saw a bumper sticker the other day, “I’ll give your president the same respect you gave mine.”

    I never disliked Bush because of the way Clinton was treated. what a joke.

    And I could have shown their car the same respect they showed mine when I had my “Worst President Ever” sticker on it (they spit on my car).

  7. max

    Well keep your sense of humor. Anyone proud of Bush is a total maroon. So. You know you win.

  8. Pretty much. S/he could have and probably should have gone on…

  9. I don’t share your sentiment. I believe the modern Republican Party has become permanently transfixed into the righteous zealots that spout nonsense every chance they get.

    What I believe will have to happen is that more moderate legions of Republicans will have to leave the party. Maybe create their own and leave the religious right to their own devices. The only problem with this scenario is that it would decimate their numbers and winning elections would become incredibly problematic.

    However, a more moderate and reasonable/responsible New Republican Party might draw moderates and right-leaning Democrats (thinking Reagan Democrats here).

    It seems like it is only a matter of time before this trip down religious righteousness backfires for the Republican Party. I mean, it has to, right?


  10. max

    I do not see how it cannot. They have created a zealot mob and whipped it into a frenzy. Like most wild and dangerous animals, it is going to be very hard to control now it is unleashed.

  11. jim

    Awesome rant! Now that is what a rant should be!

    Indeed pass it on. I’ve already sent it to over 50 people. About 15 of them Republicans.

    Thanks prophet. You should have a Pulitzer on the way!
