The Modern Day Republican Party is the Bastion of American Integrity and Why the Democratic Party is the Epitome of an Oozing Pus Boil on the Sphincter of Society
If you are viewing this piece based on the title I am going to assume one of four things:
1. You are one of the very few followers I have who have taken a liking to my political commentary and are intrigued by what sounds to be an outrageous title for a piece (If this is you, I hope you will still be following me by the end of this, but will feel no sense of regret to see my numbers fall).
2. You feel relieved that someone on Medium agrees with your view that the Republican Party is high grade awesome sauce and are looking forward to reading on (If this is you, I can promise your cognitive dissonance will demand you hit your back button immediately).
3. You are a proud Democrat and were offended enough to see how this opposed with your highfalutin sense of right-mindedness (If this is you, I can promise your cognitive dissonance will demand you hit your back button immediately).
4. Pure intrigue alone got the better of you (If this is you, welcome).
Let me begin by stating that by no means do I personally consider the modern day Republican Party to be worthy of anyone’s following. Well, that is, unless you are grossly rich and have benefited from policies openly supported by this party for, certainly the past 35 years, or, you are a proud member of this party who takes pride in defecating on the vast overwhelming majority of people, not just within the U.S., but across the globe, and lack a general sense of morality and empathy for humanity and the future of our planet. Only then would your following make complete sense.
If you are part of the wealthy elite within this country or fall into the category of ‘morally abhorrent to humanity and the future of the planet,’ and most particularly, if you dare call yourself a Christian and are a registered member of the GOP, there is a great likelihood that you are what can best be considered the by-product of being on the wrong side of history and have fallen into the ignorant trap of there being some magical golden age in American history that we need to bring this country back to. If this is you, let’s just get it out in the open: it is a valid argument to consider you essentially no different from any member of ISIS. Well, OK, sure, at present you are most likely not showing the level of violence represented by members of ISIS, but when considering the level of hysteria associated with Trump followers and the various acts of violence to be noted from his rallies, I am 100% certain that if push came to shove and some F’tard like Trump, or even Cruz for that matter, were to tell you to pick up arms and go about fighting against those who do not support their ascent to the throne, err, White House, you most certainly would be on the front lines. And one of the most frightening possibilities is, it’s not like there still isn’t time for such a viably prophetic circumstance to play itself out. So if you haven’t already pushed your back button yet, do be certain to lock away from your cognitive dissonance the words “The Modern Day Republican Party is the Bastion of Modern American Integrity” so that you can come back and read this piece in an effort to, at the very least, tell yourself, ‘OMG, he was so right! I. Am. A. Tool.’
But here’s the thing, while I personally find members of the Republican Party to lack a sense of moral and ethical understanding, especially among those who consider them self devout Christians, I feel obliged to tip my hat to members of this party. In fact, I feel obligated to even thank them for their honesty. You see, I appreciate that they wear their mental indolence with pride, whether intentional or ignorantly. I am grateful that they openly boast about the need to disenfranchise the poor, peoples of color, women, non-‘Muricans, err, non-Americans, the LGBT community, or any religion other than the plastic version of a highly watered down interpretation of Jesus, while at the same time openly accepting of further separation between the have’s and the have not’s, advocating for perpetual global war based on decades worth of blow-back from our own foreign policies, infusing of a global economic system that hoards wealth for the already unfathomably wealthy, destruction of the planet because they ignorantly believe that their god has no problem with them destroying it, and go about solidifying such policies into permanent and unquestionable practice by turning the Constitution into recycled toilet paper in an effort to accomplish these goals.
Now to be fair, I know that there is a huge swath of Republicans who are completely ignorant of this arrogant and falsely justified pride: blinded by a shining beacon on the hill. They truly love their country and truly believe in the falsely nostalgic idea that there was once a golden age in America. I will not deny a great sense of pity I feel for this ignorance, for those who have proven themselves morally and ethically complicit with the liars directly responsible for this intentionally foisted delusion, because it is this pride, whether by intention or ignorance that assures I know where these individuals stand. I am beyond gratified because I do not have to play mental gymnastics trying to figure out how the words that come out of their mouth are different from the policies pushed among the represented demon spawns within the Republican Party. Their corroded heart is laid bare for all to see, and only the morally defunct or blindly ignorant do not see this. So, if you are a proud member of the Republican Party who has voted for anyone representing this party, thank you for your integrity. I truly appreciate that I do not have to spend time trying to figure out why you make baby Jesus cry on a continual basis because your spitefully hate filled braying makes it so obvious. You have far more integrity than the Democratic Party for the mere fact of your willingness to stand firmly on your principle to shit on the rest of your fellow citizens, the future of this country, and future of human civilization.
If however, you are a proud member of the Democratic Party, you are a far greater problem than those within the Republican Party. I can totally understand why this may be incomprehensible, because, like Republicans, and in light of the imposition of Neoliberal policies over the past 35 years, critical thinking has become an artisanal craft to be found among an ever shrinking population. Devout followers within the Democratic Party, like Obama, take pride in talkin’ the talk. But when it comes to actually walkin’ the walk, FDR could literally run a marathon faster than their mental inability in acknowledging the pervasiveness of double speak, do as I say — not as I do, hypocritical, utter disingenuous weaksauce represented within this party. Were it not for the Democratic Party, Neoliberalism would not have the foundational hold it now stands firmly upon within America. Take for example former President Carter. As much as I appreciate his attempts after being President in making it at least appear as though the Neoliberal policies that he was personally associated with while in office may have been a poor decision on his part, if he actually had as much integrity as the Republicans do in exposing their corroded heart, he would be doing far more to point out his failures as President, and how Neoliberalism as practiced by the Clinton’s, Obama, and DNC, until vociferously and permanently shunned for the social cancer it is, will be the death nail of this nation.
All that is represented of this oozing pus boil on the sphincter of society that is the Democratic Party is best exemplified in the Clinton’s, Obama, and the DNC as a whole. If civilization is fortunate enough to exist a thousand years from now, hell, at this point, even 500 years from now, I feel certain this era in politics will be noted among historians as the Age of Sellout: espoused and hard pressed among Republicans, and fully implemented by Democrats.
Examples? Fine. What examples do you need of Slick Willy?
NAFTA — ✔
Expand and Privatize Prisons — ✔
Expanded the death penalty — ✔
Deregulate Wall Street — ✔
Reform welfare for the worse — ✔
DOMA — ✔
Don’t Ask Don’t Tell — ✔ (This was however removed by Obama at the request of the military brass due to their low enlistment numbers and lost desire on the part of able service men and women to righteously kill browny’s)
Airbnb the Lincoln Bedroom for DNC profit — ✔
Knew about the Rwanda genocide coming and did nothing about it only to respond after the fact with a prepackaged ‘Oops’ — ✔
Escalated the drug war while being directly responsible for the greatest up-tick in black males going to prison for crimes that white males could be found to, if not do more than blacks, certainly do as much as, yet never see the same numbers convicted or amount of time served of whites in prison for the same crimes — ✔
Reignited the Cold War by expanding NATO — ✔
Doubled down on Iraq sanctions leading to the eventual death of 500,000 children after the first Gulf War and prior to the 2nd (this was also specifically cited by bin Laden as one of the primary reasons for 9/11, which was effectively nothing more than retribution for decades of oppression throughout the Middle East that he had already cited after his first attack on the World Trade Towers, all of which being eventually sold to the American people as ‘They be hatin’ our freedom fries! All browny’s must die!’) — ✔
Willfully used tax payer dollars to defend against perjury and obstruction of justice involving a blow-job in the Oval Office — ✔
Or how about Barry?
Campaigned on investigating how we got into Iraq only to turn a blind-eye within a month of his Presidency — ✔
Expanded the drone war and defined himself as judge, jury, and executioner — ✔
Expanded the war on terror by attacking Yemen, Somalia, Libya, and Syria without the authorization of Congress (although technically, the Democrats helped in willfully allowing for AUMF to by-pass Congress (thank goodness only the US has every right to attack whomever the hell it wants — cause it’s what good guys do)) — ✔
Assassinated two American citizens in Yemen in two separate drone attacks, one of whom was a 16 year old boy (this of course doesn’t even begin to touch on the numbers of innocent civilians murdered through his ‘I Kill whomever I want! List’ — ✔
The lead up to, implementation of, and future failures of Obamacare — ✔
The VA scandal — ✔
Lied about unemployment numbers during his second campaign — ✔
Has done nothing to meaningfully rein in Wall Street — ✔
Operation Fast and Furious — ✔
Continued spying on American citizens that the Bush Admin told no one about, and is most likely still doing it despite being told this is illegal — ✔
Has prosecuted more whistleblowers (nothing to see here) than all previous president’s combined — ✔
Pressing for the Keystone Pipeline — ✔
Turned a blind eye on the Gulf Oil Spill — ✔
Has expanded oil and gas drilling throughout the US — ✔
Has been pressing for passage of TTP, TTIP, and TISA, which are nothing short of NAFTA on steroids, meth, and fentanyl-laced heroin— ✔
As for Hillary, if “experience” is your defining term for President:
Voted for the Iraq war (has never called for accountability with regard to how the American people were misled into invading a sovereign nation that her husband had already gutted and thus having any possibility to threaten us…and we knew this at the time) — ✔
Numerous instances of cronyism — ✔
Benghazi (If you don’t even wish to address improprieties associated with using a private email server and her loss of specific emails directly related to the investigation, the very fact that an Ambassador died on her watch and the nation associated with this incident is now just another shining example of American interventionist fuckeduptitude in another Muslim nation should draw concern) — ✔
Takes pride in speaking in opposition to Citizens United while having no problem with financially tying herself to the very system she claims to oppose, and dares to suggest with her long history of cronyism that she will not be paying back those who have been financially backing her for President (It’s also imperative to point out that she is directly associated with why Citizens United went to SCOTUS and how in 2014 and at present is offering hand-jobs to the highest bidder) — ✔
Intimately connected with pretty much every instance presented with regard to Slick Willy and Barry — ✔
And then there’s the DNC, which at this point, if you don’t get the gist of how this political party has been directly responsible in sending America into an eventual death spiral, I am going to assume you already hit your back button and have moved on.
Presidential and congressional members of the Democratic Party have soundly proven they have no scruples: they will lie to your face and think nothing of it, all the while, selling themselves as the party of the people by, if not outright telling the American people they are opposed to the list above (along with a number of other unmentioned hypocrisies), go about supporting these policies behind the backs of their constituency (well, OK, I should have written ‘the people’ because if you are paying attention, you know their “constituency” is technically speaking, exactly the same as the Republican Party’s “constituency,” i.e. Wall Street).
In instances where they cannot get away with lying to the American public, they have gone about using the very language that Republicans use to justify implementing Neoliberal policies. After all, the affects of ‘trickle-down we do what we want, bitches,’ (i.e. Neoliberalism) upholds itself on the false sense of moral certitude by simply lying about what’s really happening, while at the same time attempting to go all Jedi mind-trick in telling you “There’s nothing to see here, we’ve totally got this under control, mindless consumption is calling you,” only to have systemic failures come back to haunt policy makers, which follows with the simple default response of, “Oops, our bad, nothing to see here, we’ve totally got this under control…” being an acceptable means of accountability regardless of the number of lives destroyed or lost.
Democrats have taken pride in selling themselves as the champions of civil and human rights, feminism, education, the environment, supporter of the working class and unions, all of which at this point in time are nothing more than forked-tongue platitudes after decade’s worth of provable defecation on such ideals time and time again. And the most astonishing thing of all is that among their followers, most certainly Hillary supporters, they could care less, either willfully turning a blind-eye or equally falling into their own ignorantly dissonant trap about what’s going on, foolishly thinking that she is the most experienced candidate, because what proves experience more than being a war mongering, environmentally raping, corporate hegemonic whore with a long history of doling out hand-jobs to the highest bidder?
We deserve better. Please note, I am not wishing to tell you who to vote for, after all, I am a firm believer in we deserving whoever is, so called, elected into positions of power by the will of the people (Oh, hi, 1st term George W. Bush). But what I am willing to say is the Republican Party has proven itself morally and ethically corrupt through its braggadocios flaunting of a black soul that is deserving of the tiniest respect for how honest they are with proving this to everyone. And that the Democratic Party, representative of, if not outright lying, intentionally disingenuous black souls who have proven no intention of upholding the values they take great effort in telling everyone they represent. So, decide wisely America, because I guarantee neither front-running candidate’s running for President nor the parties that represent them care about you, well, other than you playing your part in staying silent, docile, and ignorant to this very reality.
