COTILLION FOR LIBERALS!
The Talmud has a wise passage that translates loosely into the words “when you are merciful to the cruel, you are thereby cruel to the merciful”.
Progressives, … liberals who are falling into the “civility trap” make me sick. You are not “taking the high ground”. You are more like a trained dog jumping for a piece of liver.
The far right repeatedly harps on a handful of rioters, overlooking millions who march in peace. They focus on those who use ad hominem attacks and call names etc to portray progressives as angry violent types who are the true haters in contrast to the well modulated conservos. Ya know who was very polite and known for great manners and etiquette? Nazis were, that’s who.
Today I saw one such liberal person proclaim a hard and fast rule that while expressing themselves on his page, nobody could mention “wishing another dead”. I find this incongruous when even as I write, it is right wingers who are repealing prohibitions on selling guns to mental defectives, removing health care from those, many of whom will in fact die and beefing up a military that has done little but murder helpless brown skinned people in decades. These cockroaches disguised as legislators are creating so many ways to legislate things that will actually cause the death of innocent people that one could argue that in a world where only violent revolution has ever made a real difference, merely wishing them dead is not nearly enough.
Right wingers still squeal like pigs about the “liberal media” when in fact they have almost complete control of airwaves that are in a firm death grip and even CNN and the more objective media is tripping over it’s own feet not to offend by speaking truth, just as those liberals who worship civility as “the be all and end all” have deified etiquette. I do not fall for scripted inducements to call these people “conservatives” because they are not conservative. They are fascists. They are also racists, bigots, crazy people, religious kooks, gun nuts, abortion fanatics and many other undesirable things but as a general description, above and beyond all, they are fascists.
If someone gets the impression that I am angry, you’re damn right I am. If someone gets the impression that I am so angry I wish they were dead you are right again. The simple reality is they are taking lives by virtue of their very existence. While I would never take a life other than in defense of my own life or someone else’s, as sincerely as I can say it, I do wish many of them were dead. If many of these bigots dropped dead this minute I would not so much as shed a tear and the world would be a better place.
The Talmud has a wise passage that translates loosely into the words “when you are merciful to the cruel, you are thereby cruel to the merciful”. With that I wish today’s entire Republican Party would rot and die. Fuck em’!
