LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES AND FASCISM

Mascot with demo and repub headsIt’s been quite awhile since one of Balladeer’s Blog’s “Liberals and Conservatives and …” items, largely because of how increasingly outdated and irrelevant the labels Liberal and Conservative have become in recent years.

Regular readers know that I get attacked by both left-wingers and right-wingers since I refuse to play along with their silly “shirts versus skins” thinking which dictates you MUST declare yourself part of either the left or the right even though we can all see what a monumental mess that divisive thinking has resulted in.

More and more of us adults have accepted that a combination of supposedly “left-wing” and supposedly “right-wing” approaches to life is far more constructive than the shrill, “strictly one or the other” partisanship practiced in the past.

The people who still pretend to be “Liberals” though their worldview has NOTHING to do with liberty and EVERYTHING to do with imposing taboos have run rings around the people who still pretend to be “Conservatives.” One of the false notions pushed by the left-wing Archie Bunkers of the 1960s generation is that fascism is purely a product of right-wing fanaticism when it is really a product of fanaticism from either end of the political spectrum.

From there the axe-head was largely dropped and fascii (plural) from then on referred to the bundle of rods or sticks.

The sticks gave way to arrows in some imagery, like the infamous “Yoke and the Arrows” of the Falangists in the Spanish Civil War. The overall message of the clump or bundle of sticks remained the same as it had been for centuries: one stick (or for more dramatic impact, one arrow) could be easily broken. Together in a bundle the multiple sticks could NOT be easily broken.

This has always been the grotesque appeal and the message of fascism no matter which side of the political spectrum practices its ugliness: one lone, otherwise insignificant person can be easily broken, but TOGETHER, many otherwise insignificant people cannot be easily broken. That description applies to fascist groups all the way up through the present-day gang which is ironically called Antifa (the biggest fascists of the moment).  Continue reading

LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES: AMAZING PARALLELS

mascot new look donkey and elephant headsWelcome back to Balladeer’s Blog! Like other adults here in the U.S. my own views are a mix of “liberal” and “conservative” attitudes, that’s why the rest of us find dogmatic Liberals and dogmatic Conservatives (with capitalized L’s and C’s) to be so outdated and laughably partisan. 

 

Liberals think they’re fit to lecture the rest of us about “diversity”. / Conservatives think they’re fit to lecture the rest of us about “family values”. 

Liberals are pretentious fools who actually think they’re the country’s official “intellectuals”.  / Conservatives are nationalist fools who actually think they’re the country’s official “patriots”. 

Liberals mindlessly take sides against their own country no matter what the circumstances. / Conservatives mindlessly side with their own country no matter what the circumstances.

Liberals have hopelessly politicized the educational system, then feign outrage when people prefer home-schooling, even though it’s exactly what they would do if their children were being force-fed Conservative dogma. / Conservatives have hopelessly politicized religion, then feign outrage when people avoid church because they don’t need clueless clergy members telling them what their political views should be. 

Liberals want us to treat Christians like they’re less than human. / Conservatives want us to treat homosexuals like they’re less than human.

Liberals pompously think they’re fit to decide who is “racist.” / Conservatives pompously think they’re fit to decide who is “unpatriotic.”

Liberals want to teach only the negative aspects of American history while ignoring the positive aspects. / Conservatives want to teach only the positive aspects of American history while ignoring the negative aspects.  

Liberals grandly admonish against “demonizing” and “dehumanizing” people even though they spend all their time demonizing and dehumanizing American Conservatives. / Conservatives endlessly congratulate themselves for their alleged “Christian compassion” but loathe the thought of tax money aiding their fellow human beings in any way.

LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES ARE ALL FOOLISH

liberals and conservativesLike other adults here in the U.S. my own views are a mix of “liberal” and “conservative” attitudes. That’s why the rest of us find Liberals and Conservatives (with capitalized L’s and C’s) to be so outdated and laughably partisan. Here’s a list of some of the reasons we despise American Liberals and American Conservatives equally: 

Liberals think they’re fit to lecture the rest of us about “diversity”. / Conservatives think they’re fit to lecture the rest of us about “family values”. 

Liberals are pretentious fools who actually think they’re the country’s official “intellectuals”.  / Conservatives are nationalist fools who actually think they’re the country’s official “patriots”. 

Liberals mindlessly take sides against their own country no matter what the circumstances. / Conservatives mindlessly side with their own country no matter what the circumstances.

Liberals actually believe bloated hatemongers like Michael Moore and Al Sharpton. / Conservatives actually believe bloated hatemongers like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh. 

Liberals pompously think they’re fit to decide who is “racist.” / Conservatives pompously think they’re fit to decide who is “unpatriotic.”

SEPTEMBER 11th, LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES

PLANE WORLD TRADE TOWER

September 11th, 2001

Fifteen years ago Muslim fanatics reminded the rest of the world that they’ve been at war with us for about 1,400 years.  Independent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog takes a look at a parallel Earth today. 

Several years ago a big deal was made over whether or not the 9-11 attacks could have been prevented by greater coordination between elements of the intelligence community. Amid the predictable partisan bickering and childish finger- pointing that characterized the 9-11 Commission and its findings an important consideration was overlooked.

That consideration was how events would have unfolded if the attacks had actually been thwarted. Let’s take a quick look at both the Liberal idiocy and the Conservative idiocy that would have followed. 

THE LIBERAL IDIOCY – The insecure American Left always feels that the only officially “intellectual” thing to do is to take sides against one’s own country no matter what the situation is. I agree there are plenty of times when reasonable people WILL take sides against their own country, but with American Liberals the rest of us have learned to just yawn and listen with amusement as they twist logic as severely as they have to in order to stick to their apparent loyalty to “everyone who hates America, right or wrong.” Continue reading

MUSLIM SAVAGE KNIFES TWO IN FRANCE: OBAMA BLAMES THE NRA

OBAMA: THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY WANTS THE MUSLIM VOTE, THEREFORE WE MUST CONVINCE THEM THAT OUR PARTY IS ALL THAT STANDS BETWEEN THEM AND MOBS OF HATE-FILLED AMERICANS!

OBAMA: THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY WANTS THE MUSLIM VOTE, SO I DON’T CARE HOW MANY OF THE REST OF YOU DIE! YOU AND ALL OF YOUR LOVED ONES ARE EXPENDABLE, YOU DAMN PEASANTS!

What kind of savages intentionally target a police commander AND their innocent spouse and child? Oh, yeah … Muslim savages. RAMADAN continues with  yet another Muslim attack in the name of the Islamic State (Obamastan). The Muslim fanatic stabbed his male victim to death and slit the throat of his wife. Police were able to rescue the couple’s child before the Islamist could kill them, too.

Though the attack happened overseas Barack Obama IMMEDIATELY took to the airwaves to insist that the attack had nothing to do with Islam but was the fault of the NRA … or America’s “Knife Culture” or the Crusades … or Donald Trump … or solar flares … or something … but definitely NOT Islam. He then said that the attack was proof that Americans need to reevaluate themselves. Hey, the pathetic little man is like Pavlov’s Dogs! Instead of a bell he reacts to all Muslim attacks by exonerating Islam, blaming other people and insisting that Americans need to reevaluate themselves.

France, on the other hand, has an actual ADULT as Head of State, and Francoise Hollande never tries to blame innocent people for the bloodshed caused by Islam. Speaking as firmly as Little Barry Obama does ONLY when trashing his own country Hollande spoke movingly and, unlike Obama, seemed to ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT THE DEAD VICTIMS! Wow! I wonder what it’s like to live in a country with a leader like that?

BARACK OBAMA APOLOGIZES

Obama weak

Barack Obama contemplating his failed presidency

Very moving words from a president I have never believed capable of this type of honesty:

I, Barack Obama, apologize to everyone in the world for your misplaced hope in me, especially that premature Nobel Peace Prize which I have thoroughly failed to live up to. I apologize for giving nuclear weapons capability to the fanatics of Iran. Any and all deaths from Iranian nukes are to be blamed on me and me alone.

I apologize to the world for spawning the Islamic State and I beg all of you to please refer to it as “Obamastan” as a constant reminder of the shame that should forever be attached to me. The Islamic State/ Obamastan’s atrocities were enabled by me and I am very, very sorry. 

Obama crying gun control

Barack Obama crying over his failed presidency.

I apologize to the American voters – both living and dead, legal and illegal – for betraying the trust of that wonderfully diverse group. I have set back race relations in this nation by several decades, especially by spitefully encouraging African-Americans to commit acts of violence against police officers. Even a former member of my own White House staff succumbed to my calls for violence and shot at a law enforcement officer.  

I apologize for destroying health insurance for so many working class families. My ego and my fundamental dishonesty drove me to the many lies I told about Obamacare. Please forgive me, though I do not deserve it. Continue reading

BARACK OBAMA’S WORTHLESSNESS NAILED PERFECTLY

Jimmy Kimmel joke about ObamaBefore sniveling Liberals try their tiresome game of accusing me of being a Conservative I’ll point out again that I’m not. I’m pro-choice, pro-Free Speech and I supported gay marriage years before the weak, inept and crooked little man named Barack Obama decided it was politically safe enough to change from opposing it (he even voted for DOMA in Congress) to supporting it.  Continue reading
