Paging Rick Moran: unwashed VISIGOTH ALERT!
Squid, in the comments to my post on MF Global:
Let me see if I’m understanding this correctly — Obama/Pelosi/Reid quadruple the federal deficit, so that Washington can push more taxes. Holder “loses” 2,000 rifles to Mexican drug cartels, so that Washington can push more gun control. Then Corzine “loses” a billion dollars of Other People’s Money, so that Washington can push more finance regulation.
Am I the only one seeing a pattern here?
Seeing it? No. Correctly identifying it as a pattern being used, quite intentionally (and following both the Alinsky and Cloward-Piven playbooks) by radical ideologues to “fundamentally transform” America into the kind of centrally-planned democratic socialist state they’ve spent years in academia longing to lead? Again, no — but you’re sadly in the minority.
The official “sane conservative” (read: pragmatic GOP-first! adept) narrative is that to say such things is “unhelpful”, to recognize such things marks you as a kooky fringe extremist afeared of the black helicopters, and to wish to combat fundamental transformation a misreading of Obama’s intent, his being but a good man who desires what is best for his country, however much that may diverge from the policy preferences of conservatives, and however much that may trouble the Constitution and its framework.
This is, after all, a collegial world of politics, meant for polished gentlemen of considered breeding and erudition — hail fellows well met! — and it could do with less of the un-nuanced, unpolished hyperventilating of perpetually OUTRAGED “populists” who ridiculously, and without a proper understanding of the historical specifics of the term, see “Marxists” in their revolting, cheap, instant ramen soup cups.
I said GOOD DAY, sir!
