The ultimate task for the people is to remain vigilant and aware ~ that the government, their government is out of control, and this moment, this opportunity, must not be forsaken, must not escape us, for we shall not have any coarse but armed revolution should we fail with the power of the vote in November ~ This Republic cannot survive for 4 more years underneath this political socialist ideologue.
The above comes from the "Whitehouse Watchdog" section of the Greene County, VA Republican Party's "Constitutional Conservatives" newsletter. Outside of the Free Republic, Fox News and other notably right-leaning locales, GOP newsletters are perhaps the best source for hyperbole, veiled hatred and outright hysteria. Ponch McPhee (heh) is the man assumed to be responsible for the above outburst in political insanity.
I'm not here to blame a single person who could easily walk back his words with a boilerplate apology. Instead, blame falls on an entire political spectrum that's collectively tweaked something fierce at the sight of a man of color occupying the highest office in the nation and presiding over what is arguably the most powerful nation on Earth. And it's tweaked to the point where armchair patriots issue oblique death threats through newsletters and e-mails passed on from supporter to supporter until they're inevitably intercepted by people with a modicum of common sense and shared with the general public, most of whom are understandably repulsed by the entire thing.
These people can't come out and say what they really want, as it would very well destroy their social lives and their power within the American Mediasphere. So they rely on twisted double-meanings, racially motivated dog whistles and coded rhetoric. Most people will instinctively parse the true meanings of their words. Others will just nod approvingly without realizing the subliminals underneath.
We all know most conservatives have a penchant of selling woof tickets to canceled events. And their words would mean absolutely nothing if it wasn't for that one person who takes those woof tickets at face value and attempts to cash them in. I believe some of the conservative folk are actually counting on some lone individual to swallow the hype and attempt something irretrievably stupid and dangerous.
Let it be known that if anyone was to take a run at the president, First Lady or God help us, the kids, the rioting that will ensue will make the L.A. and Detroit Riots seem like quaint and annoying Tea Party protests. If that someone actually succeeded, the United States of America will effectively collapse as a nation, as the generations of unmet grievances and unhealed wounds will burst open and consume this nation in a manner that even the so-called "patriots" never counted on.
Conservatives claim they want to "save" the nation from many perceived evils, yet they prove to be the exact evil the country is plagued by. Because the country couldn't be the exact way they want it, the armchair patriots, Teabaggers and the like are now engaged in a nationwide temper tantrum. You hope they decide to hold their breath and turn blue, but it never gets to that point. They're locked in the "knock things down and scream" stage. Someone should go fetch a belt.
Oddly enough, conservatives project their very failings onto their enemies...and it sticks. Instead of the conservatives being know as petulant children, it's the liberal "hippies" and "socialists" who are prescribed this behavioral trait. Instead of conservatives being spectacularly lazy and greedy, it's minorities who are accused of being this. If the GOP could get away with tagging Obama as an adulterer, they would, and they would proceed to ignore the likes of Newt Gingrich, David Vitter and Richard Melon Scaife.
These conservatives don't know what the fuck they're doing and they should stop before someone, somewhere gets hurt.
The challenge before us is very clear. Creating a blueprint for winning back the Senate and retaining the House, along with defeating the President is our party’s mission. We must return the Republic back to the people.
Conservative codespeak is an amazing thing. It's always implied that this country can't be shared with all 313.5 million of its current inhabitants. No, it has to be "taken back" by a small cadre of "freedom loving" individuals, who invariably and without fail are Anglo-Saxon descendants of either advanced or middle age. The people whom the country has to be "taken back" from are, without fail, minorities, the politically liberal, those with lifestyles or beliefs that deviate from the Protestant template, etc. In essence, people who don't look, act or think like them. And these folks use the words of the nation's founders and the constitution they created as justification for their beliefs and actions.
If the Founding Fathers were alive, you think they'd want to have a quiet chat with these people?
