The American Taliban

The party that lost the 2008 National elections is getting crazier and crazier in their zeal to usurp the lawfully elected President and Congress.  The Tea Baggers want to take our country back — and that’s about all they ever say.  Not that the country has been stolen from us, but that’s how they look at it: a black guy is in charge —





— he just can’t be “one of us,” so he must be evil, he must be godless, he must be an alien; the suits in power want to tax us and take away our guns, dogs and cats will be living together . . .


So in response to a moderate black democrat in charge, the rich, angry white guys — and their, simply put, crazy as batshit female tea baggers —





— will do or say anything to destroy the American political system: the system that they say works like a charm when they’re in charge (yeah, remember the Bush years?) but somehow, magically, that same system is completely broken when they’re out of power in D.C.


“Poor, poor pitiful me!” the far-right non-thinkers whine.  They rattle the bars of their invisible cage —





— gnash their fifes and drums, hide behind the cross and the flag, and, also, hang our President in effigy.


Very, very Christian of them.


The tea-bagging whiners are nothing more than sore losers.  Their ideology is as crazed, as zealous, and as dangerous as the beliefs of Islamic extremists: race-based, religion-fueled, loud, stupid and violently furious.

In an essay, “The Down Side of Stupidity,” Robert J. Elisberg recently wrote:

. . . by “stupid” I don’t mean simply disagreeing with an opinion. (The “Oh, that’s just stupid” gambit.) I mean actually stupid. Thinking you can fly and stepping off a building to prove it. Buying a set of steak knives for your five-year-old. Like that. Like when one blindly accepts something against all known and rational evidence that has no basis in reality.

Believing that Barack Obama was born in Kenya, that is stupid.
Believing that Barack Obama is a Muslim, that is stupid.
Believing that Barack Obama might be a terrorist, that is stupid.
Believing that Barack Obama is comparable to Adolf Hitler, that is pathetically stupid.
Believing that Barack Obama is a Socialist, that is stupid.
Believing that Barack Obama is like Hitler and a Socialist – two completely opposite concepts – that is incredibly stupid.
Stupid. Like that.
Literally stupid.

The American Taliban wears a tri-cornered turban.

Here are a few articles you may not have seen.  This one makes a very valid point about the American Taliban, and how their hatred of knowledge and reason — closely combined with their religious fervor — threatens to turn America into a nation of thug-like ignorance.  The next article?  Well, I’ll just quote the headline:New Tea Party study: Glenn Beck is an “educator” and the most highly regarded individual.  Seriously.

Finally: Who funded Hillary’s vast conspiracy?  You know — the one not even liberals wanted to believe existed.  It was these guys.

Seriously.

One thought on “The American Taliban

  1. Rave on! When people are out of control with unemployment, foreclosures, and sky rocketing debt from bad decisions, they want to strike back, but where. Government is always a good target. Get these folks jobs and they will be too busy to fuss.
    Besides, an idiot is a genius to another idiot.
