Over at the Blog of a friend of mine; a reader wrote to complain about some things that he said about Lyin’ Mitt Romney. My friend posted as follows:
“A reader of this blog accuses me of character assassination of Mitt Romney because I call Mitt out for his lies. You cannot be guilty of character assassination if the so-called victim lacks character. If Mitt will stop telling lies, I will stop calling him a liar. Until then, I will call them as I see them.”
Now this got me to thinking; and you all know how dangerous that can be.I thought particularly about the phrase: “If Mitt would stop telling lies”
I am just a bit weary of walking on eggshells every time I speak with a republican or about republicans. I’m tired of not saying what I think to be polite and not seem extreme.
I hate to generalize but I believe that the majority of republicans fit into one of the two types I describe so I will go ahead and risk the ire of the few who may not………..
The first is a person who likes to have everything he does and does not do decided for him. He accepts what he is told without investigating to discover if it is the truth. his party and their platform is his security blanket.
This man has a need to be right even if he is wrong so he will not accept the possibility that he is wrong. Because he is incapable of forming his own opinions and standing up alone for them (he is; in essence; a coward when alone) he requires the constant reassurance of his party and his church that he is a good and righteous person; for which assurance, he is willing to give up his right to freewill and independent thought.
He will do and vote as instructed by his party; always. He may be an honest man. He may be a nice man. He may even be an intelligent man. But he is by no means to be considered a wise man. He is generally unable to tell right from wrong and so needs to be told which is which by his church and/or his party.
Many of this type of republican are also Fundamentalist Christians. It is not difficult to see that a person; impressed and mesmerized by the dramatic and energetic show of speaking in tounges, shaking and quaking; rolling around the floor; screaming and passing out; and the emotionally charged, faux healings that take place in these “Churches” would be easy converts to a political party like the Republicans or the Nazis.
Both of these parties are known for their grandiose statements and promises.Their great patriotic rallies where the dictates and policies of the party are drilled into the minds of the masses by the use of overly emotional and highly charged speeches touting the glorious history of the nation; the virtuous nature of its founders and heroes; and the direct
connection of these worthies to the party officials and candidates seen before them.
They play patriotic music; wave the flag and continuously raise the level of frenetic energy until the crowds of followers are almost hypnotized into a false sense of security by the constant assurance that the party knows what the best plan for us is. That they are in control and working from a clear set of principles set down by the founders and protected by the heroes. These people feel all warm and fuzzy and safe within the embrace of their wise all-american party and their tactiley satisfying and emotionally moving church.
The second type is a person who is driven. They are driven to succeed both financially and socially. They have vast amounts of self-confidence bordering or over the line into severe narcissism. (Mitt is an excellent example of this type)
These people are sure of everything. They are just as incapable of independent thought as type 1 but once they are instructed as to the correct course; they become rabid in their desire to force everyone to live by those same beliefs and are willing to do anything to get their way.
They have no conscience.
Many are sociopathic; having no understanding or care for the effect of their actions on others. Serial killers are also sociopathic but with a more personally violent nature and a need to experience the hands on killing process in one form or another. But type 2 republicans who are sociopathic are mostly satisfied to do their killing from a distance by the use of laws; punishments; and oppression.
They enjoy the suffering of others as much as the serial killer but are too embroiled in their own ego and righteous purpose to allow themselves to be seen as a criminal. These people are just as happy to witness the hunger and
oppression of great masses of the poor with the certain knowledge that they caused their pain and humiliation through their bigoted, elitist actions.
These are the republican leaders and fanatic movers and shakers who ever press their case to the people and the Congress in an attempt to expand their influence over our entire nation and eventually the entire world.
Because these people are of a uniquely focused mindset; they are adept at amassing wealth and because they are generally raised by parents who are also republican; they are not inhibited by the basic rules of fair-play; compassion; sharing; equality; honesty; or the value of the truth.
In fact they are not even familiar with the concepts having never been taught of them or allowed to learn them by example. Rather; they are drilled in the practice of pragmatism; greed; manipulation; deceit; and bigotry by their wealthy parents.
So in a type 2 republican; the leader; we have a narcissistic, self-righteous criminal with no sense of right and wrong who cares nothing for the feelings of others; has a wish to force his will on the world; and is willing to commit any deceit; tell any lie; roll over all opposition with impunity and cause any amount of suffering to get his way.
As we have seen in the case of Lyin’ Mitt; many of these high-strung juggernauts are also Mamma’s boys. Whiny little bitches who sucked tit until they were five or six and wore rain-gear and used umbrellas when they ventured out. They are told what good boys they are for so long that they adopt a permanent smirk of self-righteous condescension as their go-to expression.
So Mitt Romney will never tell the truth any more than Richard Nixon did. Anymore than George W. Bush did. Anymore than any republican has ever done or ever will.
I mean; when you firmly believe you are doing work for God and God tells you to become a greedy, uncaring, asshole; you tend to believe that your words create truth; the end justifies the means and poor people are just lazy I guess.
Remember: Republican is as republican does; never as republican says.
