For context, a courtesy Breitbart does not extend to his victims, here is the entire statement, made before another massive Tea party gathering of 60(?) people:
“I must say, in my non-strategic… ‘cuz I’m under attack all the time, if you see it on Twitter. The (unclear) call me gay, it’s just, they’re vicious, there are death threats, and everything. And so, there are times where I’m not thinking as clearly as I should, and in those unclear moments, I always think to myself, ‘Fire the first shot.’
Bring it on. Because I know who’s on our side. They can only win a rhetorical and propaganda war. They cannot win. We outnumber them in this country, and we have the guns. (laughter) I’m not kidding. They talk a mean game, but they will not cross that line because they know what they’re dealing with.
And I have people who come up to me in the military, major named people in the military, who grab me and they go, ‘Thank you for what you’re doing, we’ve got your back.’
They understand that. These are the unspoken things we know, they know. They know who’s on their side, they’ve got Janeane Garofalo, we are freaked out by that. When push comes to shove, they know who’s on our side. They are the bullies on the playground, and they’re starting to realize, what if we were to fight back, what if we were to slap back?”
He’s not a Conservative, a Republican or even a member of the so-called moral majority. He’s a dick. In fact, the Tea party is exactly that, just a rabble of dicks that have seized control of the Republican party like some South American Junta. Wrapped in a flag they really don’t believe in, waving Constitution in one hand and a Bible in the other, both of which they pick and choose from for their own needs, they have finally sailed past obnoxious and insipid to outright absurdity bordering on the psychotic.
This mob of know-nothings are leading decent Republicans and Conservatives through a field full of shit and then walking that stink all around the rest of us. And it might all make some sort of sense if it served a purpose for the country. But spend a day listening to advertisements on Right-wing radio, all the dumbass books these goofs write, with simple words, simple sentences, big fonts, the cross-promotional trash from trashy people getting wealthy off those led astray by fear or paranoia or severely limited life experiences to create markets to enrich themselves. It isn’t about politics for the Breitbarts and Coulters, it is about the political and nationalistic porn they peddle!
Breitbart is making threats that his 60 semi-retired, semi-literate, marginally socialized mooks most of us wouldn’t want to sit in a diner near will go home and no doubt masterbate to, which is really what this is all about. They all laughed and cheered at the comment. Is it me, or did this all begin when the Weekly World News went out of business? And now people who normally believed that Michael Jackson was the spawn of Alien insemination with Roseanne Barr suddenly had too much time on their hands. Mix in a little 9-11, add some economic refugees and plenty of echo-chamber Right-wing affirmations of those anti-social over-generalizations and ignorances the rest of us realize are counter to a functional society and there’s your Tea Party.
Funny, on the way to the office this morning, until I saw Breitbart’s video, I was mulling a piece about how democrats and Republicans really want the best for the country. Reasonable folks realize that compromise is the rule not the exception in the world. We all realize this brinksmanship, winner take all bullshit wouldn’t work in marriages, in families or between neighbors. Hell, it doesn’t work at a four-way stop sign!
I’d just read an article on research into the “Conservative brain,” and thought that was every bit as dangerous and counter-productive as Michael Savage proclaiming Liberalism is a menatal disorder. So I’m a bit pissed off that I started the day with a communal thought for my Democrat and Republican friends alike and had to respond to a dick like Breitbart. Maybe tomorrow, if the Republicans can toss the Tea party schlubs out on their ass before they same or do something equally stupid. Seems unlikely though. When you follow someone through a field of shit the stink stays with you for a while.
