I was all set to cite example upon example of how it is lunatics like Coulter who have been "attacking the Family" non-stop since the Reagan Era. I had scores of sound bytes, video clips, and quote after quote showing as clear as clear can be, just how hateful, stupid, anti family, anti American and just plain mentally deranged, people like Ann Coulter really are.
But.. you know what? I don't care. For over five years now I have blogged about the lies, the hypocrisy the bigotry and greed on the American Right. Frankly, I'm tired.
So this is what America has come to; Republicans who only serve the wealthiest of the wealthy, TeaBaggers who wave the Constitution like a banner, but understand none of it. American Talibangelicals, who scream hysterically about the threat of "Sharia Law", but want to impose their own fundamentalist extremist beliefs on the rest of us. Cartoonish TV nutjobs ranting about birth certificates and some mysterious coming Muslim Caliphate.
Add to this sad cast of mentally misfit toys, a failed half-term Governor who can't express a coherent thought, unless excessively coached, and when caught out for that, hams up her accent and blames the "lame stream gotcha media". THIS is what passes for public discourse in the United States in 2011.
So I say go ahead, shut down the government. Refuse to raise the debt ceiling. Let the good faith and credit of the United States collapse. Destroy what is left of the middle class. To hell with the long-term unemployed. Eliminate Social Security and Medicare. Drag the United States of America into a new gilded age of the super rich, and the super poor and nothing else. Make us into a country doesn't build, doesn't invent, doesn't achieve. Turn the United States into a country that says sacrifice is for suckers, and greed is God.
There is no point in trying to reason with the American Right . Reason involves facts and reality. Two things the American Right Wing has learned to be quite comfortable living without. So I say to my Conservative and Libertarian friends, good luck. The rest of the world thanks you, for all you have done to eliminate their competition.
Well done indeed... I'm sure the mythical Ronald Reagan you worship were he ever to have existed, would have been very proud.
