Who Hijacked Our Country

“U.N. Thugs! One World Government!” is the new “Socialized Medicine!”

Ever since the 1950s, the Far Right has thwarted government-paid health care by yelling “Socialized Medicine!”  They couldn’t very well come out and say “there’s lots of money to be made from sick people.”  It’s a much better sales pitch if you can scare the gullible with sinister visions of Soviet tanks rolling down Main Street.

More recently, large developers and the fossil fuels industry are using the same tactics to derail everything from bike lanes and mass transit to anti-sprawl “Smart Growth” projects — i.e. new housing being built in urban areas and close to a transportation hub.

Again, they can’t very well come right out say “our profits are more important than conserving energy and reducing traffic gridlock.”  It’s so much easier to get the inbreds all riled up with scary visions of a smothering One World Government engulfing America and destroying her freedom.

Maine’s teatard governor canceled a project which would have eased traffic congestion along the Route 1 corridor.  Too many “grass roots” protesters thought this transportation project was part of a sinister U.N. plot.  Ditto for a high speed rail project in Florida.

Undoubtedly the wicked Globalist schemers are telling each other “OK, we’ll get America all softened up with mass transit projects, and then we’ll move in for the kill.  BWAAAHAAHAAHAA!!!

The Communist under the bed has morphed into the Black Helicopter hovering near YOU.

UN Agenda 21 is the root of all this rightwing paranoia.  It’s a non-binding resolution passed by the U.N. in 1992.  The resolution is meant to encourage conservation of open space and natural resources.  You know, because of the human species exploding exponentially and devouring and polluting everything in its path.

Again, the key word in the above paragraph is NON-BINDING.  Sorry, wingtards — big word with three syllables.

Needless to say, the Republican Party has adopted a resolution condemning the “destructive and insidious nature of Agenda 21.”

The American Policy Center, a rightwing think tank, has been speaking out against Agenda 21 since the resolution was passed 20 years ago.  The group’s founder, Tom DeWeese, says he used to have small audiences whenever he railed against Agenda 21, but now the group’s membership is increasing and his audiences are larger.  Translation:  these inbred neckdroolers are getting more gullible every day.

It's the return of ZOG Zionist Occupation Government.

Is the Turner Diaries on top of the Teaparty reading list?

It takes a special kind of stupid, to think the way these pugs do. We've got the moron using an Onion story to say Planned Parenthood is building abortionplexes with movie seating, we've got Trent Franks going all in on banning black women from choosing what to do when they get pregnant. I swear, there are days I just want to pierce my brain with screwdrivers, this is one of those days, with all this news from republican circles.

Where would they be without their bogeymen? They've always got a collection of them. They cling to their precious bogeymen like Linus to his security blanket.

If worse comes to worst, as when one of their BIG bogeymen, the USSR, dropped out, they gin up some more. It's almost as if they have a quota.

Radical-right types would be laughable if they weren't so potentially dangerous.

These are the most frightened damned people to ever live. Life, itself, must be an absolute hell for them, considering all the things that they are scared shitless of.

Wasn't that what Ross Perot ended up screaming about?

Erik: I'd forgotten about the Turner Diaries. I'm sure it's required reading, at least for those teatards who can read.

Jess: A special kind of stupid -- good description. Or as you've said before, "the Stupid, it burns."

SW: Linus clinging to his security blanket, LOL. That's exactly the way these tinfoil hatters cling to their wacko theories.

Mr. C: That's exactly what I was thinking as I was reading the article.

Demeur: Every time I think the Foxsuckers couldn't possibly get any more gullible, they do.

Erik: Uh oh, Fluoride -- I guess the damage is already done.

JR: You're right, underneath all that macho "I came unarmed, this time" bullshit, they're cowering under the covers.

Suzan: Maybe; I don't remember that. I just remember he was against trade agreements, like "that giant sucking sound" as American jobs went to Mexico.
