Ok, I have no idea how this rabidly anti-Muslim, red-blooded American, whose insignia incorporates the well known symbols of alt-wisdom, the cat and the lion, wound up on my Facebook friends list.
But in any event, there she was in my newsfeed, ranting in all capitalized letters as all great thinkers throughout the history of great thinking have been known to do.
I believe it was Plato who once said, “LISTEN TO THIS CRAZY SHIT!”
But I digress.
She had a cogent thought to share with others and me:
“DISGUSTING! SURE, BRING IN A BARBARIC CULTURE WHOSE INTENTIONS ARE TO BRING OUR NATIONS VALUES DOWN TO THEIR FILTHY LEVEL!”
She was referring to an article from Angry Patriot Movement, a news organization best known for its impeccable journalism and, of course, its seething love of the U.S.
The headline from this boiling kettle of all American outrage read, “ALERT – Obama’s SICK ‘Islamic Plan’ Just Exposed, But Hillary Loved It.”
First of all, how can I express the level of appreciation I have for the fuming protectors of freedom who devote their lives to alerting me of such things and the apoplectic loyalists who share their alarming work? I simply can’t find the words, because there are no words to express it.
Apparently, President Obama has been “bumrushing” Syrians into the country under dark of night and Hillary Clinton is totally ok with it. You won’t be seeing this on CNN, I assure you.
In other posts on this person’s wall, one can see the development of rather nuanced immigration and foreign intervention policies, best exemplified by these two statements….
1) “OK EVERYONE I KNOW YOU DON’T LIKE TO SEE THE TRUTH BUT IT IS YOUR DUTY AS A DECENT HUMAN BEING TO EDUCATE YOURSELF WHILE THE INTERNET STILL ALLOWS YOU TO SEE WHAT IS GOING ON IN THIS WORLD REGARDING CERTAIN YOUNG MALE IMMIGRANTS! PLEASE EDUCATE YOURSELF BECAUSE THIS HORROR IS COMING TO OUR BELOVED AMERICA! THE POWERS THAT BE ARE BREAKING US DOWN WITH RACIAL DIVIDE AND ECONOMIC STRIFE AND SOON POSSIBLY WWIII. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION. NEVERMIND YOUR FOOTBALL, THE KARDASHIANS, BRAD AND ANGELINA THEY ARE ALL NOTHING! GET OFF OF YOUR STUPID GAMES AND WAKE THE F UP!”
Yes. Will someone please wake the F up? The F has a lot of things he needs to deal with. He should have set his alarm. I mean seriously.
But again I digress. Second quote (in response to a reportedly eminent threat of nuclear war with Russia).
2) “THIS IS CRAZY! I LOVE THE RUSSIANS. IF THE USA WANTS TO NUKE A COUNTRY THEY SHOULD ROUND UP ALL THE MUSLIMS INTO THE MIDDLE EASTERN RAT HOLES WHERE THEY CAME FROM AND BOMBS AWAY! GET THEM OUT OF EUROPE, THE UK, AUSTRALIA THE USA AND ANYWHERE ELSE THE MUZRATS INVADED AND SEND THEM BACK TO THE HELL THAT IS ISLAM.”
And she’s absolutely right. This is crazy.
But here’s the real reason I’m sharing this with all of you. It’s because I’m confused.
Here is a person with a real vision for America and when someone accused her of displaying her “Republican bigotry,” instead of putting them in their place, she chose to stump them with this question/exclamation.
“Who says I’m voting!”
Yes, Who says! But then Who says so many things and what if Who is wrong? I hear he gets a lot of his information from the F, and that fool can’t even set an alarm clock.
What if Who is wrong and people like her, people with the kind of insight that can’t fully be absorbed if presented in weak and pathetic small letters, choose not to participate in our political process? What kind of world will we be left with?
One where those who don’t wave the flag with boiling contempt for two thirds or more of the populace get to try their unclenched hands at building a nation built on compassion, cooperation, tolerance, and (gulp) equality?
Can you imagine it?
I’m simply not built in any appropriate way to stand in the presence of a flaming mad philosopher like this one, let alone be on their friends list.
So I did the right thing and removed myself.
Who says I’m ungracious!
Whatever, Who. I’m out of here. Will someone tell the F it’s time to go?
