Balladeer’s Blog would be just fine if both the Democrats’ and Republicans’ political parties – or the “Royal Houses” as I call them – were destroyed. Both parties are in the pocket of one percenters and bloated rich pigs. This is why the bought-and-paid-for office-holders from both parties are fighting President Donald Trump so fiercely. He’s not a career politician so he is under attack by the same forces that Franklin Roosevelt had to defy.
Under Obama the Democrats lost literally around 1,100 political seats on the federal and state levels. Those seats were all UNEARNED by the Republican Party, which is led by garbage like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell. People’s disgust with RepubCorp and its owners has become slightly less than it is with the Democrats and their owners so they’ve been voting for Republicans just to keep more Democrats out.
Unfortunately, Republicans like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell mistakenly think the voters are enamored with the Republican Party’s perpetual air of confusion and incompetence. Republican and Democrat career politicians are nothing but white collar criminals. More and more of us are turning away from both Parties.
Which brings us back to why Democrats are the slimiest filth of the moment and have driven away so many of us:
I often get emails and comments that say things like: “Given the type of things you write about you’re clearly not a Conservative so why do you bash Liberals so much?” Or even: “What makes American Democrats such unbearable jackasses?”
Let me provide one small example that is a microcosm of the way American Liberal Democrats have become nothing but smirking jackasses who don’t know nearly as much as they think they do.
Not so long ago, one of America’s female Conservatives (which one is not important to this example) was speaking at a Tea Party event and closed by exhorting her audience to “Party like it’s 1773.”
American Liberals all across the media and the internet had a field day ridiculing the woman for saying that. In their usual prickish, pompous manner American Liberals assumed the woman had meant to say 1776, which was the year the Declaration of Independence was signed. Liberal asses repeated their snobbish “Conservatives are stupid” meme over and over again because of this incident.
Actually since the Boston Tea Party, the event the Tea Party takes its name from, happened in 1773 – NOT 1776 – the Conservative Woman had the right year. That simple fact was lost and/or ignored in the slew of jokes about how “historically illiterate” Conservatives supposedly are for defending the woman. Talk shows, news shows, internet humor outlets all ran with the usual “Conservatives are morons” sentiment for several days.
Let me emphasize this for overseas readers: the people who had the historical reference RIGHT became national laughingstocks and were being ridiculed as “stupid” by the people who were WRONG about the historical reference. Corrections were never run or aired by any of the offending outlets. The historical fact was lost in the rush to ridicule and all the general public remembered was that, supposedly, once again Conservatives had revealed how “stupid” they are. Continue reading
