AmeriCAN-DO Attitude

Are you an AmeriCAN or an AmeriCAN'T?

Dropkick Murphys, Apparently a Group of America-hating Socialists

So I went on iTunes last night to see if there were any new songs/albums out. I came across Dropkick Murphys, whose new album just came out today. I like some of their music and, like many others, am a big fan of their song Shipping up to Boston. So I decided to check out their new album.

I listened to the title track Goin’ Out in Style and liked it immediately. Next was Hang ‘em High. Liked it. Next was Broken Hymns. Really liked it. So, I decided I was going to buy the entire album.

Well, while waiting for the download, I decided to go through the rest of the songs. I played Take ‘em Down. Loved it! Thought it would be perfect for the TEA Party with regards to what we need to do regarding the America-hating socialists and Marxists in the White House and Democrat Party. But then came the ‘sucker punch’…

As I was searching for the lyrics, I came across this: Dropkick Murphys Stand with Wisconsin

Hey Everyone the Dropkick Murphys would like to take a moment to acknowledge the struggles of the working people of Wisconsin and to pledge our support and solidarity by releasing the song “Take Em Down” from our upcoming album. We think it’s appropriate at the moment and hope you like it.

We have also created a limited edition “Take ‘Em Down” t-shirt which will be available for sale shortly at MERCH. Proceeds from the “Take ‘Em Down” t-shirt sales will benefit Workers’ Rights Emergency Response Fund.

We’ll see you in Wisconsin in a few days,

The Dropkick Murphys Stand With Wisconsin !!!!!

UGH.

So I immediately realize that I just purchased an album from a group of ignorant douchebags who stand not with the people of Wisconsin — who voted Governor Walker into office to do exactly what he is now doing and who are against the Fleebagger Democrats who refuse to do their civic duty for the people of Wisconsin — but a bunch of America-hating socialists.

Brilliant. You MotherF’ing idiots.

Go HERE to see some of the many YouTube videos already made with the song dedicated to the America-hating socialist protests in Wisconsin. Here are the lyrics:

When the boss comes callin’ they’ll put us down
When the boss comes callin’ gotta stand your ground
When the boss comes callin’ don’t believe their lies

When the boss comes callin’ his take his toll
When the boss comes callin’ don’t you sell your soul
When the boss comes callin’ we gotta organize

Let em know
We gotta take the bastards down
Let them know
We gotta smash them to the ground
Let em know
We gotta take the bastards down

When the boss comes callin’ you’ll be on your own
When the boss comes callin’ will you stand alone?
When the boss comes callin’ will you let them in?

When the boss comes callin’ will you stand and fight?
When the boss comes callin’ we must unite
When the boss comes callin’ we can’t let them win

Let em know
We gotta take the bastards down
Let them know
We gotta smash ‘em to the ground
Let em know

We gotta take the bastards down

We gotta take the bastards down

When the boss comes callin’ they’ll put us down
When the boss comes callin’ gotta stand your ground
When the boss comes callin’ don’t believe their lies

When the boss comes callin’ his take his toll
When the boss comes callin’ don’t you sell your soul
When the boss comes callin’ we gotta organize

Let em know
We gotta take the bastards down
Let them know
We gotta smash ‘em to the ground
Let em know
We gotta take the bastards down

Let em know
We gotta take the bastards down
Let them know
We gotta smash ‘em to the ground
Let em know
We gotta take the bastards down

So apparently the “bastards” that need to be taken down are not the America-hating socialists and Marxists, but conservatives who are doing everything possible to try to SAVE each State of the nation and the nation as a whole from financial collapse created by the liberals in the Democrat and Republican Parties.

Again… brilliant. You ignorant Motherf’ing tools.

Also, take note… the “boss” of the public sector unions is THE AMERICAN PEOPLE… THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER. So what Dropkick Murphys is endorsing is taking down the American people. The American people are “bastards” according to Dropkick Murphys.

It’s too bad the Boondock Saints don’t really exist, because I’d like to enlist their services to kick the ever living crap outta the America-hating, Socialist-supporting douchebags of Dropkick Murphys.

  1. Oh, sorry, Nathaniel, I should have congratulated you on your review of Beerfest for that book site, what’s it called again?

    And how is good old Harbor Beach?

  2. Fair enough, fair enough.

    I’ve been challenged to cite my sources for categorizing the Tea Party as racist. So okay – let’s take a look. Unlike the insults hurled my way, I’m willing to re-examine my position through a wide consideration of the facts.

    Would you accept a Newsweek article as a start? I know it’s part of the mainstream media that you love to demonize but, seriously, trailer park, outside of citing the bonkers left wing blogs, what choice do you give me?

    So, rather than be accused of editing to make a point, consider this excerpt. I have included the links as I have so pointedly been required to do:

    Ever since the Tea Party phenomenon gathered steam last spring, it has been plagued by charges of racism. Placards at rallies have depicted President Barack Obama as a witch doctor, (http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/09/17/obama.witchdoctor.teaparty/index.html) denounced his supposed plans for “white slavery,”( http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/36555655/ns/politics-more_politics/) and likened Congress to a slave owner and the taxpayer to a “n—-r.” (http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/36555655/ns/politics-more_politics/)

    Opponents have seized on these examples as proof that Tea Partiers are angry white folks who can’t abide having a black president. Supporters, on the other hand, claim that the hateful signs are the work of a small fringe and that they unfairly malign a movement that simply seeks to rein in big government. In the absence of empirical evidence to support either characterization, the debate has essentially deadlocked.
    Until now, that is. A new survey (http://depts.washington.edu/uwiser/racepolitics.html) by the University of Washington Institute for the Study of Ethnicity, Race & Sexuality offers fresh insight into the racial attitudes of Tea Party sympathizers.
    “The data suggests that people who are Tea Party supporters have a higher probability”—25 percent, to be exact—”of being racially resentful than those who are not Tea Party supporters,” says Christopher Parker, who directed the study. “The Tea Party is not just about politics and size of government. The data suggests it may also be about race.”
    Surveyers asked respondents in California and a half dozen battleground states (like Michigan and Ohio) a series of questions that political scientists typically use to measure racial hostility.
    On each one, Tea Party backers expressed more resentment than the rest of the population, even when controlling for partisanship and ideology. When read the statement that “if blacks would only try harder, they could be just as well off as whites,” 73 percent of the movement’s supporters agreed, while only 33 percent of people who disapproved of the Tea Party agreed.
    Asked if blacks should work their way up “without special favors,” as the Irish, Italians, and other groups did, 88 percent of supporters agreed, compared to 56 percent of opponents. The study revealed that Tea Party enthusiasts were also more likely to have negative opinions of Latinos and immigrants.
    These results are bolstered by a recent New York Times/CBS News survey (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/15/us/politics/15poll.html?_r=2) finding that white Tea Party supporters were more likely to believe that “the Obama administration favors blacks over whites” and that “too much has been made of the problems facing black people.”

    The survey also showed that Tea Party sympathizers are whiter, older, wealthier, and more well-educated than the average American. They’re “just as likely to be employed, and more likely to describe their economic situation as very or fairly good,” according to a summary of the poll.
    If Tea Party supporters are doing relatively fine, what are they so riled up about? These studies suggest that, at least in part, it’s race.

    The country that the Tea Partiers grew up in is irrevocably changing. Last month, new demographic data showed that minority births are on the verge of outpacing white births. By 2050, Hispanics are expected to account for more than a quarter of the American population.

    The Tea Partiers “feel a loss … like their status has been diminished,” says David Bositis of the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, which examines issues of race. “If you listen to [their] language, it’s always about ‘taking our country back.’ But it’s really not taking the country back as is. It’s taking the country back”—as in time.
    Bositis finds the movement’s arguments about reckless federal spending unpersuasive. Why, he asks, weren’t they up in arms when President George W. Bush launched two costly wars and created a new unfunded mandate with his Medicare prescription-drug plan?
    Why didn’t they take to the streets when he converted a surplus into a massive deficit? “I don’t like to be in a position where I’m characterizing people as being racially biased,” says Bositis. “But when the shoe fits, what do you do?”
    Given modern societal norms, “they know they can’t use any overtly racist language,” he contends. “So they use coded language”—questioning the patriotism of the president or complaining about “socialist” schemes to redistribute wealth.
    The Tea Partiers bridle at such accusations. “That is so pathetic,” says Danita Kilcullen, the founder of Tea Party Fort Lauderdale. “Nobody in the Tea Party movement that I know is a racist.” She notes that she attends a church with a black pastor, supports a black candidate (Allen West) in a local congressional race, and backs a Latino candidate (Marco Rubio) for U.S. Senate. When a protestor showed up at one of her group’s rallies with a racist sign, she says, she personally kicked him off the corner. “We absolutely don’t tolerate anything like that,” says Kilcullen. “Nobody uses the N word. Nobody calls Mexicans all those ugly things that people say. Those are lies about us.” She concedes that the movement doesn’t draw many African-Americans. “But that’s because all the black people voted for Obama,” she says. “Well, not all—but 90 percent.” (It was actually 95 percent.)

  3. I’m pretty even you wouldn’t consider The Economist to be far left rag. So I provide here the recent observations of “Lexington,” one of the magazine’s regular commentators.

    Again, the article is reproduced in full so you can’t dodge the issue by accusing me of editing to my advantage:
    Tea-party racism
    Racism in the tea-party movement

    Jul 20th 2010, 17:49 by Lexington

    I SAID in a recent post that people, such as those in the NAACP, who call the tea-party movement racist did not know whereof they speak. Now, in light of the Mark Williams affair, I have to consider whether a correction is in order.

    To judge by a “satirical” letter he wrote in reaction to the NAACP, Mr Williams, a tea-party activist, is indeed a racist, and for that reason the National Tea Party Federation, an umbrella group, has expelled both him and a group with which he is associated, the Tea Party Express. In the Washington Post this morning Eugene Robinson pounced on the letter as evidence that “ugly, racially charged rhetoric has been part of the movement’s stock in trade all along”.

    Well, I concede that there are racists within the movement, maybe many more than I had realised. But pending further evidence I’m not quite ready to accept Robinson’s claim that this has been its “stock in trade” all along. The only way to get a feel for what animates the members of this sprawling and inchoate grassroots movement is to attend their events and talk to them. And all I can say is that whenever I have done so there has been precious little evidence of racism, either on or below the surface. It’s not as if they have a habit of clamming up in the presence of reporters. Most seem eager to talk vehemently about their ideas.

  4. How about this response to the accusation that I don’t provide citations when I said that Gov. Scott Walker had barred access to the people’s house:
    commondreams.org:
    Wisconsin Governor Defies Court Order to Open Capitol
    Local Sheriff’s Department Refuses to be Part of the “Palace Guard”
    by Mary Bottari

    MADISON, Wisconsin – In a dramatic turn of events at the Wisconsin State Capitol Tuesday, Governor Scott Walker defied a court order to open the Capitol for normal business operations. State legislator, Representative Marc Pocan, called the move “not only unprecedented, but contempt of court as well.”

    On Monday at 8:00 a.m., the Wisconsin Capitol building, which was the site of dozens of major protests in the last two weeks — including one of over 100,000 on Sunday — was virtually locked down as the Governor moved to limit protester access in advance of his scheduled budget address on Tuesday.

    After untold numbers were turned away at the door Monday and told they could not speak to their legislators, Dane County Sheriff David Mahoney pulled his deputies from the Capitol saying it was not their job to act as “palace guard.” Wisconsin has some of the strongest open meetings and open government laws in the nation, and the local sheriff’s department had played a key role in allowing protesters to exercise their legal rights in a public space, while keeping the protests inside and outside the Capitol safe and incident-free.

    On Tuesday morning, it became clear that nothing had changed. Former Wisconsin Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager petitioned the Dane County Court to open the Capitol. That petition was heard early on Tuesday and a temporary restraining order granting the request was issued promptly at 9:30 a.m.

    The order said that the respondent “shall open the Wisconsin Capitol to members of the public during business hours and at times when governmental matters, such as hearings, listening sessions and court arguments are being conducted.” The Capitol had dozens of hearings scheduled Monday and Tuesday. It has long been state law to allow unfettered access to the Capitol building when legislative business was underway. Now citizens are faced with a barrage of new rules. They could see their legislator, in some instances, if they called ahead and were escorted by an aide. (Some Republican legislators could not be bothered to ferry their constituents into the Capitol building.) They could attend a committee hearing if they called the Sergeant at Arms to register in advance. All people entering the Capitol are wanded. “Even after 9/11 we never did any of this stuff,” one protester in the crowd said.

    By 10:30 a.m., a crowd of about 500 had gathered outside the Capitol seeking to be let in, but were blocked by a coalition of police from around the state. The diverse crowd of protesters included a contingent from the Jackson Correctional Center in Black River Falls, a group of Janesville firefighters and representatives of the Menominee Indian tribe from Northern Wisconsin.

    Someone grabbed a megaphone and read the court order, prompting emphatic cries of “Let Us In!” and “Whose house? Our house!” But as the day wore on and no additional access was granted, tensions were high and many were left dumbfounded and disbelieving. The state Department of Administration issued a statement late in the day, stating that the limited access measures they had in place were compliant with the court order.

    The whole matter ended up back in court at 2:15 p.m. Hoping for a quick resolution that would allow the Capitol to open for the Governor’s budget address, the burgeoning crowds were disappointed when the court hearing wore on and on and was eventually extended into the next day. In the mean time, well-dressed supporters of the Governor were granted tickets and escorted inside. Various lobbyists were seen entering and exiting the Capitol including the lobbyist for alcohol and tobacco interests in the state.

    “You expect this kind of thing in Alabama not Wisconsin,” said one person at the barred door, referring to the Governor George Wallace’s attempted to deny black students their civil right to an education in 1963.

    • The order said that the respondent “shall open the Wisconsin Capitol to members of the public during business hours and at times when governmental matters, such as hearings, listening sessions and court arguments are being conducted.” The Capitol had dozens of hearings scheduled Monday and Tuesday.

      So let me get this straight. You’re pissed off, because Governor Walker is denying entrance to a bunch of vulgar, violent thug “protesters” who are creating chaos inside the Capitol Building and preventing any business from being done and causing problems. So I guess it would be quite alright if TEA Party Patriots did the same thing when Democrats are in power and shut down government with violence, vulgarity and chaos?

      Give me a break.

      You are actually more upset with Governor Walker who is doing his best to actually conduct the business of the People of Wisconsin, instead of being upset with the Democrats who fled the State to deny the opportunity for the business of the People of Wisconsin to be accomplished. Governor Walker is working to uphold representative government, while Democrats and the “protesters” are working to shut it down.

      Yeah, I’m on the side of Governor Walker.

      “Now citizens are faced with a barrage of new rules.”

      Yeah, gee-fucking-whiz, I wonder why that is? Could it possibly be, because the “citizens” are nothing but vulgar, violent thugs who are not in “the People’s House” in order to witness representative government in action, but to actually cause chaos and shut down the government and be a menace? Nah, that couldn’t be it. It’s just because Governor Walker is a totalitarian dictator.

      Again, give me a fucking break. When people are more upset that violent assholes are being kept out of public buildings, rather than be upset that their elected officials have fled the State, that’s fucking pathetic.

  5. Violent? You keep going on about violent?

    What violence? Stop making out with your first cousin for a few seconds and tell me what violence where.

    Comment by Frank Thaven | March 9, 2011 , 10:32PM

  6. Wait, stop right there, I don’t need to read anything else of this drivel, after I read:

    “When read the statement that “if blacks would only try harder, they could be just as well off as whites,” 73 percent of the movement’s supporters agreed, while only 33 percent of people who disapproved of the Tea Party agreed.
    Asked if blacks should work their way up “without special favors,” as the Irish, Italians, and other groups did, 88 percent of supporters agreed, compared to 56 percent of opponents. The study revealed that Tea Party enthusiasts were also more likely to have negative opinions of Latinos and immigrants.”

    THAT is your proof of the “racism” of the tea parties? So let me get this straight, if you think that a black man could do JUST as well as a white man, you’re a racist, while if you think that he’s inferior and needs government help, you’re racially enlightened?

    Expecting black people to do what every single other group of people in this country did to achieve success and erase their original negative stereotype is somehow demeaning to them and racist? HAHAHAHAHAHA, yup, yet another leftist illustrating his own racism through his negative view on the abilities of black people to achieve anything on their own.

    ““If you listen to [their] language, it’s always about ‘taking our country back.’ But it’s really not taking the country back as is. It’s taking the country back”—as in time.”

    That idiot’s right and he doesn’t even know it. Back in time when spending wasn’t out of control, back in time when taxes were equal and fair, back in time when people didn’t have an entitlement attitude. It has NOTHING to do with taking it back from minorities; but that butt-fucking toolbag wouldn’t know that, because he see’s all issues as issues of race…because he’s a racist. That’s what racists do, they look at things through the prism of race, instead of seeing individuals.

    Oh, and congrats, you can google my name, do you want a fucking medal? Perhaps a government paid for retirement pension?

    Comment by Nathaniel Kish | March 10, 2011 , 7:16PM

  7. Nope, Nate, not what I said. And now you’re “killing the messenger.”

    You’ve blasted me for not citing sources and not reading correclty or deeply. Now, because you see something that doesn’t fit the prism of your philosophy, you dismiss it as “drivel.”

    What would your response if I refused to read some of Limbaugh’s and simply dimsissed as “drivel” not worthy of my prodigious intellect? More insults on my abilities and presumed hatred of my native land.

    You said you wanted citations for my contention of the racist nature of the Tea Party movement. I started looking. Don’t blame me you don’t like the answers of an academically sound survey.

    And, please, Nate, a little attention to logic and a little better reading skill. First you mis-read the survey question and the important prefacing clause, “If blacks would only try harder …” For you to go to your next statement, “if you think that a black man could do JUST as well as a white man, you’re a racist.”

    In logic, we’d say that was similar to:
    if a =b, then c = d.

    Doesn’t work, Nate.

    As for your parting salvo, now because I disagree with you, you now want to take away my military pension and beneifts? Wow. Shame on you.

    Comment by Frank Thaven | March 10, 2011 , 9:50PM

    • What would your response if I refused to read some of Limbaugh’s and simply dimsissed as “drivel” not worthy of my prodigious intellect?

      Oh, you mean how you dismissed the content and facts I provided in my comment on March 5, 2011, 5:55AM above with this statement:

      I looked up some of the links mentioned in the earlier screeds. Guys, quoting each other in a closed circle of like-minded folks is NOT the same as being well-informed.

      Instead of going to the links and then presenting a response to the facts reported, you completely disregard everything and don’t even bother to address any of the facts.

      Nathaniel has you pegged very well. You are a complete hypocrite. You hold others to standards to which you do not hold yourself. You accuse the TEA Party of racism, claiming “But I’ve heard the code words and I’ve heard the innuendos”. However, you have YET to provide any proof of the “code words” and “innuendos” that you claim to have heard. You have yet to even tell us the “code words” and “innuendos” you’ve heard. You then challenge us to prove the TEA Party is not racist, when you have not even provided any proof that the TEA Party is racist. Nevermind the illogic of trying to prove a negative. And then when Nathaniel uses your own illogic against you, saying he sees “code words” and “innuendos” in your comments proving that you hate America and challenges you to prove you do not hate America, you take offense and state…

      “Not only does this ring like the words of a child having a tantrum, it also smacks of totalitarianism – “You wouldn’t have anything to fear if you’re not guilty.” You’re guilty until proven innocent.” Wow. Like Daniel Webster, I fear for the future of the republic.”.

      You are so dense to not even realize that Nathaniel simply used your own “logic” against you. All he did was switch your accusation of ‘racism’ against the TEA Party to an accusation of ‘hating America’ against you. When Nathaniel uses your standard, you call it childish, totalitarianism and you fear for the Republic. Well, you only have yourself to blame for that, since you just called your own tactic childish, totalitarianism and a reason to fear for the Republic.

      And now you’re whining that people may not read your sources, when you yourself have yet to even respond to the facts in the numerous sources I provided in response to your very first comment on this post.

      You have proven yourself to be a hypocrite, an idiot and an ignoramus. You’re a hypocrite as I just explained; you’re an idiot, because you can’t seem to even click on the sources I provide and read and comprehend simple facts; and you’re an ignoramus, because you’re ignorant of the facts we’ve all provided for you.

      As a result, “douchenozzle” seems to be a effective way to summarize all that into one descriptive term.

      Comment by Michael in MI | March 10, 2011 , 11:11PM

  8. Yes, actually douchenozzle, that is exactly what you said. I copied and pasted it directly from your post. You’re trying to say that blacks can’t do just as well as white people through hard work. The question is pretty cut and dry, can black people do as well as white people? Tea party people say yes. How are they supposed to improve themselves BUT through working harder? No surprise you’re EX military, you’re probably one of the guys who coasted through and expected to do just as well as the rest. Sorry guy, to achieve something, you’ve got to try harder. All the tea party people said was that the black people are just as capable as white people.

    And don’t you even try to use logic, I’m surprised you can tie your own damned shoes( they’re probably velcro), logic is obviously WAYYYYYYYYYYYY beyond your capabilities.

    As for your citations, again, I actually read them, and I interpreted them correctly, unlike the racist toolbag who wrote the questions, hoping to bate some conservatives to say what they did so he could then twist the results to say what he believed or wanted them to say.
