The Mount Vernon Statement

Don’t these rightwing dickwads have anything else to do? They’re already rewriting the Bible to get rid of all that whiny liberal bias. No, Jesus wasn’t some long-haired hippie with delicate facial features, and no he didn’t drive the moneylenders from the temple. He had short hair, steely eyes, wore a Brooks Brothers suit and had regular business conferences with the aforementioned financial consultants.

And now — the Mount Vernon Statement. Come on now, click on the link. It’s futile to resist. If it doesn’t destroy you it’ll make you stronger. You won’t know whether to laugh, cry, swear at the top of your lungs, hit the computer — or all of the above.

Basically, the Mount Vernon Statement says America is being attacked from within by godless liberals who want to destroy our values, and our Founding Fathers are spinning in their graves.

Judging by the wording of the document and who signed it, they should have just called it Son of Project For A New American Century.

Signers include Grover Norquist, Tony Perkins (of Family Research Council infamy) and Edwin Meese. Who even knew Edwin Meese was still alive? If you’re under 45 you’re probably thinking “Who??!?!?!?”

He was Ronald Reagan’s attorney general. He shared Reagan’s schizophrenic political viewpoint — massive crackdowns on drugs, dirty magazines and other victimless crimes, and “limited government.”

One of his most famous quotes was: “You don't have many suspects who are innocent of a crime. That's contradictory. If a person is innocent of a crime, then he is not a suspect.”

He also — remember now, schizophrenics don’t know they’re schizophrenic — complained repeatedly about being “tried and convicted by the press” (he was up to his eyeballs in the Iran-Contra scandal).

Here’s a link to the Mount Vernon Statement itself and everyone who signed it.

Jeez, that was quick. 6 minutes after posting this, I get a comment. Hmmm, the First Amendment, let's see if I can remember what the liberal media told me. I think it says: Everybody has the right to be stoned 24 hours a day, do exactly what they want when they want, and receive a welfare check any time they want one. Did I remember right?

The first is all about honoring Hunter S Thompson and Kurt Vonnegut and getting the Soros check, not the welfare check. I may have to ask you to turn in your librul credentials. Wait though, does this mean I will lose my vote and be considered 3/5ths of a person because I am *gasp* a dirty brown female person? Worse, I am a godless atheist. I guess I could always move to some hedonistic paradise that suits me better. Maybe some foreign place like, I don't know, Hawaii or maybe Myrtle Beach somewhere exotic like that.

Oh and anon, you could ask some of your leaders if they have done this, also,too you betcha. Some of them tend to get the whole Constitution thingy and the Declaration thingy all mixed up. Maybe they could write it on their hands to remember or something. Kinda small, you know like Unabombery type font.

Ed Meese? You have got to be kidding me!! Well that gives a lot of credence to this nonsense. I guess that also gives up my age :-) As to "anonymous" posters have you ever noticed that they can't write a succinct, grammatically correct paragraph? That fact alone reflects their nutty, Jesus Jumping paradigm. I have banned them from my place. Nameless folk are usually brainless folk.

The signers of this PR stunt: A 100 year-old shyster lawyer Ed Meese; Grover Norquist, a no tax anarchist; and the murderer from Psycho, Tony Perkins. How serious should we take this?

Jess: Oh that's right, I was thinking of the Second Amendment: the right to bare your arms so you can shoot drugs into them.

I guess all of us liberal America-haters should move to one of them furrin countries, like Hawaii or Californee.

Suzan: "One nation under Ed Meese" -- LOL. God, what a nightmare image.

MadMike: I would have expected to find Ed Meese in one of those "Where Are They Now" articles.

Trolls can be entertaining, at least in small amounts. Thank God for comment moderation.

Holte: Ah yes, Norman Bates, still alive and well; getting ready for Psycho XXXVII or whatever the next sequel number is.

Conservatives have a tendency to drench their rhetoric in hyperbolic paranoia. Everyone's "attacking them" by exercising their rights and demanding something other endless wars from their taxes. Ironically, the ones who whimper the most about the "Constitution" on the right over look the protection from searches and seizures and that part about "establishment of religion".

Good old Ed. It seems to me that HE wound up as a suspect, and had to leave DC with his tail between his legs...

Lew: So true. Christians are being persecuted every time a store clerk says Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas. And the Constitution is just a Goddamn piece of paper when it protects individuals from government spying or interrogation.

Jess: OK, here's my card back. I'm actually a teabirther, trying to disguise myself as a librul.

JR: That's right, Ed said it himself -- since he's a suspect, he must be guilty.

Obviously these guys never read any works by Thomas Jefferson. Ed Meese was living proof that any jackass (along with John Mitchell) can be Attorney General.

He touts local control except with localities wanted to make porn legal to buy and he tried to federalize it.

I'd say they may want to cut the constitution back to about 10 maybe 12 amendments tops.

Fuck the 13th

Erik: That's always been one of my "favorite" rightwing schizophrenia symptoms. "Local autonomy!" when some small town wants to defy the Environmental Protection Agency or a federal civil rights law. The rest of the time, it's "oh look, here's a community doing something I don't like. Squish! Oh no you don't!"

Another lame attempt to garner some attention, and build support of oppression.

Lots of talk, and weak-ass, meaningless writing. That's what the Right is all about: Fuck getting anything done - They're content to just talk an assload about what they'd do if their numbskulls were elected by The People, and whine that their (our!) precious country is being invaded from within by people who don't believe the same shit they do.

Remember dick weeds: People vote, and not enough of your people voted to get your Right-tards into office. Better luck next time.

This shit will be a distant memory in a day or two.

Fuck the Mount Vernon Statement. It ain't worth the paper I wipe my ass with.

Whew. Sorry about that.

Jeez, they're keeping Ed Meese alive? Don't tell me Goldwater is stuck in a cryogenics tube somewhere in Area 51, too.

Lew beat me to it. What they offer is unconstitutional tyrrany wrapped in the flag and holding high the cross of Supply-side Jesus.

Carlos: I think talking and venting is all they do. That chickenhawk mentality pervades everything they do. They talk and rant, and then hope somebody else will go out and do the rabble-rousing.

HST: I'm sure that's what he/she/it meant to say.

Randal: George Wallace, Bull Connor -- they're all in Area 51, just waiting for The Moment.

TomCat: LOL, everyone should have a Supply-Side Jesus. Don't leave home without it.

Mount Vernon Statement = nonsense. And speaking of nonsense:

Anonsense #1 (11:52)...his professors (sic) propaganda? Commie pinko (how original)? Only an anti-itellectual, scum sucking, sheep loving, goose-stepping, scumbag would infer that there is something evil about getting oneself educated, or listening to learned others. Now, my real point is, name calling impresses no one, and adds nothing to the discussion...especially from a nameless sad soul. See? Get a name spineless sucker!

jadedj: For some reason I got lots of blog visits from people doing a web search for "Mount Vernon Statement." I was all braced for a huge avalanche of rightwing comments, but he/she/it was the only one.

That is surprising. Sorry for the off the subject comment, but I am so sick of "anonymous" comments by nameless chickenshits, that I can't hold my tongue about their spinelessness.
