Posted on 08/29/2019 3:41:40 AM PDT by Kaslin
You must have a heart of stone not to burst into uncontrollable, hysterical laughter at the agony of the failing New York Times and the rest of the media over how conservative activists are going to apply the same internet colonoscopy to lib journalistas as they apply to us.
Oh yeah, thats the ticket.
Drink in their pain.
Drink it all in.
Mmmmm, thats some delicious pain.
Yeah, conservatives are fighting back, and to the other side its an assault on the free press and further evidence that Trump is totally Hitler and probably Stalin too. But to us, its long-overdue counterpunching right into the progs soft gut. (Note: The author knows some of the conservatives allegedly involved, but was not involved in this glorious initiative).
This is righteous retribution, and the screaming and hollering about it is further evidence that theres plenty of dirt to dig up.
Welcome to Accountability City. Population: All you liberal media jerks.
For years, these pompous hacks have clobbered ordinary folks whose only crime is making fun of Obama at a rodeo, or making a funny meme about liberals, or understanding that there are only two genders. They pored over the social media accounts of lesser mortals, highlighting thought crimes and sometimes thoughtlessness with malignant glee. They tried to teach us rubes the lesson that disobedience and defiance bring cancellation. They took normal people and hauled them up onto the Aztec altar of human sacrifice to have their beating hearts cut out to appease the demon demi-gods of wokeness.
Take that, grandmother who likes Trump on Facebook.
Take that, random congressional staffer who gets snarky about the Obama girls partying.
Take that, restaurant that supports candidates the Santa Monica swells dislike.
Take that, kid who stands there while some Frigidaireborne ranger veteran of Dick Blumenthals platoon in Nam channels Elizabeth Warren by pounding a drum. And now these media cretins are stunned stunned, I say at the fact that these new rules they created are going to be applied as a suppository of justice right back at em. This is terrible! they fume, outraged that the very same standard of transparency that they wish to apply to their enemies is getting applied to them, too. Its vitally important that the preferences and positions of ordinary citizens can be publicly exposed so liberal bully boyz and bully girlz and non-gender conforming bullyz can harass, assault and intimidate their victims into submission. Yet, its also vitally important that the racist, homophobic and otherwise obnoxious ravings of our alleged betters remain hidden because
Well, just because.
You know, theres an undeniable satisfaction to be had from Alinskying these weasels, in taking the New Rules they pioneered and ramming them down these lefty punks collective collectivist throat. After all, weve been warning them for years that the idea of a two-track system of social accountability one where theres one set of rules for the elite and another for us Normals is totally unsustainable. But to point out that these are new rules is almost beside the point.
To our elite, there are no rules, at least not for them. The concept of rules is simply inapplicable to them. There are rules for us Normals how else would they be able to hold onto their prestige, power and sinecures if not for a complex web of formal and informal social regulations designed to keep us in thrall and leave them unaccountable for their myriad failures? No, there are no rules for them. Rules are limitations. Rules create obstacles. Rules limit the ability to do as one pleases. The will of the elite is justification enough; rules are actually immoral when applied to our betters because rules might foil our betters from fully exercising their better natures to Normals disadvantage.
Except were not playing that.
Whats notable about the fallout from this revelation is how few conservatives wimped out with the kind of Fredocon bleating about how this is not who we are and were better than that. Even formerly squishy conservatives are no longer being sissies about getting their hands dirty pummeling leftist jerks in the public arena. Sure, some of the Ahoy Boyz on Joe Walshs campaign team probably fussed about it, but no one reads their crappy cruise brochure so how would we know? The rest of conservatism is unified through the magic of hysterical laughter.
Conservative wokeness is spreading.
See, the medias But were a bunch of neutral truthtellers dedicated to the truth and to telling it! act just got to be too much. You cant have all the respect and deference an objective news monk might deserve yet still get to act like an active partisan.
Dinner is not all dessert you gotta eat your vegetables, too, and the broccoli is you not inserting your personal opinions into the news. The ice cream sundae is you being respected as unbiased. You gotta gobble your veggies, but they dont want to.
The NYTs leaked transcript from a few weeks ago wrecked any chance of anyone falling for their All The News Thats Fit To Print baloney again when the scribblers are hassling their editor because the paper isnt calling Trump racist often enough, youve Old Yellerd objectivity. When you openly plan to replace American history with a garbage narrative designed to undermine the moral foundation of its citizenrys right to self-government in order to solidify your own castes hold on power, youve chosen a side in the Octagon, so dont be shocked if someone figuratively busts a chair over your skull.
You media hacks chose a side, and now youre going to be treated like anyone else who chose a side. Sometimes, it hurts. The thing is, we conservatives are used to it. We can take it. But youre not. Youre soft, and weak, and when you get hit its going to hurt bad.
Your suffering shall be glorious.
Kurt is really going this morning. Perhaps the coffee is too strong.
I would feel better if someone on the west coast would elect one Republican. The mind meld out there is beyond belief. There are certainly good conservatives there but the vast majority of people have mixed the Kool Aid and are waiting to pass the cups.
A shame nothing ever really goes away.
Turnabout is fair play.
I noticed that Kurt changed his name. Maybe the Admin Mod can fix it?
Kurt’s last name is Schlichter.
They won’t be able to put that Alinsky toothpaste back in the tube.
The guy was brilliant—and we should always learn from brilliant people (even if we disagree with their politics).
Referring to #8, that is unvarnished truth. The old saw of a picture being worth a thousand words is in force in the internet meme wars of today.
The author is Kurt Schlichter not Kirt Shuster.
Theres nothing like a steaming hot cup of Colonel Schlichter to be the blood pumping.
I would feel better if someone on the west coast would elect one Republican.
It looked like it was going to happen last election, then the dims came up with ballot harvesting. Every race that was trending right on Election Day suddenly shifted left after a few more days of counting. If they cant cheat, they cant win.
So what exactly happened to buttress or embolden conservative activists in their efforts?
“If they cant cheat, they cant win.”
And they know they can get away with it. The important question is, why do we let them?
The author identifies the elites, but the focus is on the foot soldier socialists. IOS premise that folks like Hillary deseres prosecution by the same measurement.
