The GOP is Jittery, Shifty, Cowardly, Obscurely Motivated, Untrustworthy, Weak, Asking-for-It

Sad, but true:

“Anger may be an energy, as John Lydon said, but anger is not an argument.”

And argument is even less persuasive than being a total [@sshole] is. Lydon is exemplary. He’s securely an immovable, shouting douche. That’s its own appeal, and it’s pre-rational. Pro- or con-Lydon arguments that follow it are rationalizations of a first-look emotional attachment (or revulsion).

The Dems are similarly in-your-face — proud liars, panderers, crooks, favor-sellers, etc. Their core voters love them, and are eternally devoted to them, because they’re that. The GOP is jittery, shifty, cowardly, obscurely motivated, untrustworthy, weak, asking-for-it. That’s why even its supposed ideological base’s support is unreliable.

Republicans can’t win anyone over, except as an “oh well” second choice when the Ds are [f#cking] up — unless and until the Party decides what it is and proclaims it unapologetically. In our lifetimes, there have been two R landslides: Reagan and ’94. Those wins came from “We’re this. Get in the damn car.” campaigns. “Hey lady, you need a ride somewhere? I’m not gonna hurt ya” doesn’t work.

Confident aloofness — “This is what we’re about. Join us or don’t. It’s all on you” — is the only potentially winning posture the GOP can adopt toward groups whose first-look emotional attachment strongly points them elsewhere. Anything else comes off dishonest, clumsy, creepy, etc.

Analogy: The GOP is a “beta.” No woman wants him until a long list of bad boys have already given her nine overlapping cases of herpes — and she’ll go back and bang any of the herpes guys behind GOP’s back anytime they booty-call. Everything GOP does to be “nice” makes her despise him even more. What should he do? Not calling her is step one.

Actually, it is Blatantly Obvious that Hitler was a Leftist

Great comment here in response to this post at Gateway Pundit: Howard Zinn, Left’s Favorite Historian Now Proven Member of US Communist Party

I was reading through the link provided by S. Wolf “What the Left Really Thinks of Hitler”

And I had to post this as a comment to it:

Actually Hitler was a leftist. Saying he wasn’t is just further pushing the lie that Hitler was “right wing” and that all Nazis were and are “right wing.”

How was Hitler left wing? It’s blatantly obvious. The only problem is that these facts are usually swept under the carpet by the people selling this “collective guilt” to Germans these days, which means: German politicians and media telling Germans people who were born after the war, that they bear responsibility for the Holocaust, which is, in fact, a Nazi principle by itself. It was called “Sippenhaftung”. One member of a group committed a crime and thus all members of the group were criminals.

Anyway.

First off, national socialism is exactly that. Socialism on a national level, focusing primarily on this strange idea of “race” instead of “class”. “Race” is nothing new in socialism. It was an important point long before Hitler. Plus, Hitler’s national socialism has plenty of “class warfare” themes. Even today you can watch one national socialist country: North Korea. It’s always sold as stalinist, but North Korea has copied the “Aryan master race” idea and calls it “national bloodline”, for which people are murdered, similar to what the Nazis did.

Most importantly though are the statements of Nazi leaders themselves.

Göbbels said in a speech in December 1933 that the NSDAP is, by definition, the German left wing (he called it “die deutsche Linke”) and that they hate nothing more than a “rechtsstehendes Besitzbürgertum”, a right-wing bourgeousie (literally a “right-wing property owning citizenry”.)

In early 1945, Hitler held a conference of the Gauleiters. During this Hitler lamented that, while the Nazis had succeeded in destroying the “Klassenkämpfer” (lit. “class warriors”, aka the Communists, Hitler’s direct competition for power), they had failed to destroy the German right wing. Hitler called this their biggest sin.

In comparison, right wing people under Hitler were men like Stauffenberg.

And if we go back into the history of the socialist movement, then we find men like Karl Kautzky, chief ideologist of the German Socialist Party, SPD, which still exists today. Kautzky once wrote, in 1914, that the ultimate goal must be the destruction of capitalism, because if you destroy capitalism, you destroy the Jews, and that is good.

And even the founder, Karl Marx himself, ranted about how “inferior classes and races must be wiped out.”

Genocide is part of the program, coming from Marx himself. Lenin. Hitler. Stalin. Mao. Pol Pot. Che. Castro. And so on. They all just followed the orders from Marx himself. Without Marx, there wouldn’t have been a Holocaust. Without Marx no gulags, no famines from Lenin, and so on.

Also, calling Hitler far right is a logic fallacy.

Communism, socialism always lead to what? Oppression, dictatorship, mass murder, as history proves without a doubt. If we call Hitler “far right”, then the extreme opposite to socialist mass murder and oppression is… socialist mass murder and oppression. Which doesn’t make much sense, does it?

Far right, that’s not the Nazis, that’s the extreme support of liberty, freedom and democracy.

Let me add this specifically here:

There are a handful of historians in Germany and Austria these days, who are pushing against this “Hitler = right wing” mantra. They are, as of now, not very popular and are called many nasty things. However, they provide actual evidence for Hitler not being right wing, but rather left wing. Evidence like speeches and notes. And the conclusion from this evidence is pretty clear: Hitler was as left wing as Lenin, just focusing on race instead of class, while Lenin focused on class instead of race. The basic idea, though, is essentially the same. Race and class are the two driving points of socialism in its many forms.

Marx always leads to Stalin and/or Hitler. Always.

And let’s not forget that Hitler received his first political indoctrination and training from whom? The German communists. Essentially Hitler agreed with their ideas. He just hated that they weren’t racist enough. The result was the German Workers’ Party (DAP), or better said, Hitler joining the already existing DAP. Eventually the DAP was renamed into the, yes you guessed right, Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, the Nationalsocialist German Workers’ Party, the NSDAP.

Also let’s not forget what Hitler promoted: German nationalism, anti-semitism, anti-capitalism and anti-communism (since the communists were the direct competition for power.)

Andreas added this great comment earlier in the thread:

“You see, even I as an ardent anti-Communist, can understand why so many western leftists thought that the early communist movement(s) was a great idea. Early in the history of socialism/communism it all seemed so high-minded, such a bold experiment. This was before Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot began to murder millions.”

Let me just say this:

The murdering began before Stalin, before Mao, before Pol Pot.

Lenin triggered famines in Russia which killed the people in the millions. Hunger was a weapon on the civil war and the Communists used it whenever they could. Millions of Russians perished. Men, women, children, because comrade Lenin said so. That was long before gulags and other camps.

If we go back even further we can see Marx himself writing about how “inferior classes and races” must be wiped out. The basic idea of socialism from Karl Marx itself includes genocide. Genocide is part of the ideology.

And every socialist, communist, marxist, maoist, etc, supports this.

Yep. And the modern day genocide is the promotion of abortion-on-demand and encouraging the elderly to simply “die with dignity”… which is promoted by liberals and the LEFT, not conservatives and the Right.

So, Will Kanye West Make a Cameo at Celebrity Haiti Fundraiser?

I left this comment after seeing a Facebook ‘friend’ post this article: Hugo Chavez Mouthpiece Says U.S. Hit Haiti With ‘Earthquake Weapon’

Hmmm, I guess the evil BusHitler and Darth Cheney left their Hurricane machine for the Obama Administration and they converted it into an earthquake machine. So, will Kanye West appear during the Haiti fund-raiser on TV and say:

“Imma let you finish, but I just wanna say… Barack Obama doesn’t care about Black people”.

Ah, just checked, and I guess Kanye won’t be able to honor and enlighten us about the racist tendencies of Obama. That’s too bad, since Kanye seems to be one of the mostest amazingly astutest political minds of our time.

Hmmm, maybe I spoke too soon: Kanye West not banned from Haiti telethon

Well, either way, if Kanye falls through, at least Hollywood still has the option to bring in that other mostest amazing astutest political mind, Danny Glover.

Martin Luther King, Jr Would be Absolutely Ashamed of Barack Obama’s America

The Left has really made a mess of things. There’s the “United Negro College Fund”, but dare call someone a negro and you’re a racist. There’s “Black Entertainment Television”, but dare call someone Black instead of “African-American” and you’re a racist. There’s the “National Association for the Advancement of Colored People” (NAACP), but dare call someone “colored” and you’re a racist.

It’s a ridiculous, ridiculous mess.

Meanwhile, we have a day set aside to honor Martin Luther King, Jr, a man who said he dreamed of a day when his children would be judged on the content of their character, instead of the color of their skin… and yet all Black America does is say that if we reject them based on the content of (or rather, the lack there of) their character, then we are racist.

Great job, Black America. Great job, Barack “he acted stupidly” Obama. The Dream of Martin Luther King, Jr. has turned into a nightmare.
