The lurking danger of Dick Cheney, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and the remnants of the now-dead GOP


I see the remaining remnants of the now-dead GOP as feral dogs.

One word: Desperate.

I hear the Hannity's and Cheney's and Limbaugh's and Beck's, and I sense danger. As well as a lot of misdirected anger. Just look in the f*cking mirror I say.

They had power, they took America and the world to the brink of ruin, and now they've been rightly tossed aside.

Rush, Cheney, Hannity and friends are trying to fire up the 21% of the country still clinging to the now-dead GOP. They're trying to blame the problems that they have caused on the newcomers. And it's not working. They've lost power, they have zero hope for the future, and their cause is lost.

Like Nazis after the war, most will come to see how tragically wrong they were. But a few never will. And those are the ones that are dangerous.

The Summer of Rage may go places we didn't expect.


Here's a view from the left.
I think there's something to it.

The assassination jokes and "liberal" conspiracy theories on talk radio could be an ominous sign of things to come.


With the national Republican party in disarray, an argument is solidifying among grass-roots conservatives:

Liberals, who are now in power in Washington, hate America and want to dismantle its foundational institutions and liberties, including capitalism and private property. Liberals are rootless internationalists who cravenly appease those who want to kill us. The primary principle of conservatives, on the other hand, is love of country, for which they are willing to sacrifice and die. America's identity was forged by Christian faith and our Founding Fathers, to whose prudent and unerring 18th-century worldview we must return.

In a harried, fragmented, media-addled time, there is an invigorating simplicity to this political fundamentalism. It is comforting to hold fast to hallowed values, to defend tradition against the slackness of relativism and hedonism. But when the tone darkens toward a rhetoric of purgation and annihilation, there is reason for alarm.

Unfortunately, no Nuremburg trials (yet) for these monkeys.

Maybe they will be hung anyway (metaphorically speaking, of course...).

Seig Heil!

Right Keith, and the Saul Alinsky wingnuts who are actually running the country are as innocent and pure as the driven snow. I thought you were smarter than that.

Keefer,
I’m torn on this issue

On the one hand the Conservatives are scary with the Religiosity, but they were totally right about the war on Islamo extremism.

GOP is in the shape they’re in only because they totally abandoned ‘fiscal conservatism’

On the other hand the left does encourage and support Right wing extreme Muslims, and this to me is a core contradiction,
It also shows up in other areas like ‘extreme religious climate change and Animal rights over human rights’.

In general I mostly agree with the radio talk show hosts you’re bitching about,
But yesterday I tuned in to Sean Hannity and he was kissing up to the Nazi Pat Buchannan, I immediately moved back to Bloomberg radio,

It’s the racist / bigots Pat Buchannan’s of this world that we really need to be concerned about.

"...Talk radio has been seething with such intensity since Barack Obama's first week in office..."Hardly. This was all Obama's fault as soon as he was nominated.

What we all must understand is that the country was in great shape January 19th.

Keith, why do you listen to Hannity and Limbaugh and Beck?

keith said...

I watch right wing hate TV because it's fun. Like watching films like "Hostel". Know what I mean?

Aunt Fanny said...

I personally listen to Hannity, Beck, Limbaugh, et al. because I believe in keeping my friends close and my enemies closer.

Forewarned is forearmed.

Kieth:

I am an independent. However, in that one cartoon you always post wherein on the one side people are trying to get rich via bubbles and on the other side, people are hard at work, I would have to say that those that are hard at work would be the true Republicans, Independents and Libertarian types whereas those trying to get rich via the bubbles would be the Dems.

Granted, there are exceptions on either side. By and large, however, the Dems generally want to take your money and give it to others that are "less fortunate" or the poor whereas Repubs, Libertarians and Independents are of the view that if you want shit, you are free to work for it.

And, when you think about it, given the opportunities in this country, no one should be poor unless they want to be.

the GOP is only out of favor because they were running things. Now that Obama is in charge the Dem's will be so far out of favor by 2012 it will be comical.

Keith,

You were leaning to becoming a Libertarian, then jumped ship and have been all over the liberal agenda.

Just because you obviously were a republican at one time and now don't like the party, you sold yourself to the only other team with power to make your point against the Republicans. This was a foolish mistake. The old saying, "Two wrongs don't make a right" applies perfectly here. You clearly jumped form wrong to wrong.

Oncr again this discussion, argument is lame. If the GOP is dead and you hate it, then why do you bring it up everyday? Let it rest.

Is the answer to my question that you are so blinded by the two party system that you say is so broken? You remind me of an old friend. He never watched football but could not wait to get drunk at the year's Superbowl party. He would show up rooting for one team and at half time if his team was loosing he would jump to support the winning team. All the time claiming why his previous selection sucked and were horrible.

Keith, please stop being that annoying guy.

By the way, the GOP may be dead, but conservative fundamentals are not. Real conservatives like myself beleive in sound money, beleive in small government, we are not neo-cons, wish for sound borders, etc. While many of us(including I an agnostic) do identify with the influence that Christianity had with the foundation of this country. Conservatism is not dead and is not going anywhere.

WSJ -- Pelosi assured Obama that a bill undertaking an overhaul of the health-care system will be on the House floor by August.You know what that means, right? Rest of the nation, prepare the wallet because the liberals will do as good job as they did in California. Third world country, here we come!!!

Anonymous said...

Keith is upset because his poll is showing that we rather watch Fox than to his pathetic propaganda at MSNBC. Oh yeah Keith, Jeanine Garofallo and Olbermann should be the voice of reason.

At least we have Fox, the only channel exposing freaks like Pelosi and your hero messiah for what they really are. That's why your beloved MSNBC is taking a beating in the ratings against Fox.

@Mark in Sand Diego

Because your liberal friends in California are doing such a great job. Your state is a joke and you're one fot he 144,000 clowns paying taxes to support celebs and illegals who breed like flies. Change San Diego's name to New Tijuana...same POS.

Now I let you go back to lyching Miss California because she beieves that a marriage should be between a man and a woman; not between a man and 2 women, not a woman with 3 men, not between a man and a horse, not between a man and 3 men...

You do know what's a precedent, right?

Oh, and don't forget to tell the IRS about your accounts in Zurich, Mr. limousine liberal.

You make no sense, jackass. Big leap on the nuc power and then that we blame Dickhead Cheney. What is "your herd" mean? If you voted for Bush/Cheney, then I will blame YOU, "Mr. solar power and sugarsnaps" for everything including 9/11. GO TO HELL.

What the hell are you talking about? When has a God fearing, Bible believing, patriotic American Christian hurt other people? Christians don't hurt other people, Muslims do. Know your true enemy. Or did you forget what it felt like on that beautiful Tuesday morning in September?????

The people hard at work are those who have no voice in either political party.

I would have to say that those who are floating the bubbles would be Republicans & the people who fund the Conservative movement.

I second that.

DIE CHENEY. I wish a pox on your entire family including your gay daughter and the test tube grandkids. You're ALL un natural scum in my opinion.

Dick, You're a Piece of Shit and hated worldwide. You should be charged with sedition and many, many felonies and high crimes including 4000+ counts of MURDER.

DIE A PAINFUL & UNDIGNIFIED DEATH CHENEY.

I like Dick Cheney, Rush, and Sean. I have no idea why you are so against these people. They love the Constitution, stick up for the little people, extol freedom and liberty, and take on the enemies that hate us.

These people are true Americans. BO is a socialist. You can't be a socialist and also be an American. The two are totally incompatible. Yes, BO is a citizen who lives in America but he's not an American. No socialist is.

Dick, Rush, and Sean are Americans because they believe in the Constitution. They believe in fighting against terror and not caving into it, like the socialists (formerly the Dems) want to. Waterboarding is torture? Who gives a shit. It was used on terrorists and in particular the guy who executed 9/11...Kahlid Mohammad. I'm not a great believer in torture but if we capture terrorists and we know they know a lot of info then torture them everyday until they speak or die. There's nothing wrong with that at all.

I'm sorry Keith, the folks you mentioned here are all good guys. I have no idea why you hate them so much. The only reason I can think you do is because they expose the lies, hypocrisy, and sleaze of the Left for all to see...and the Left hates to be exposed like that.

USA said...

why do you spend one moment putting this up if your so convinced they are evil or is it that you and your left lunatics are truly concerned that they pose a threat to your intent on destroying this country and its core values which as socialists you run from but please keep harping on them keep writing about them and by all means keep praising obama because it will all come to a crashing end like all of your liberal policies that have been tried and failed wherever they are tested

I watch right wing hate TV because it's fun.I used to feel the same way about the Jerry Springer Show in the mid-90s. Eventually, it got old.

I realised "I wouldn't want to invite any of these stupid, aggravating fuckers into my living room. So why am I allowing them in there on my TV?" Ditto for Hannity, Beck et al. The time spent with them would be better utilised cleaning shitstains out of my toilet. No difference really -- except one set of shitstains can talk...

Christians don't hurt other people,Does the name "Timoth McVeigh" ring any bells? Plus Robert Eric Rudolph, any number of Southern lynch mobs, U.S. President Andrew Jackson, the American pioneers who gave smallpox-infected blankets to Indians, and on and on. I'll assume you were trying to be ironic. Otherwise, you're exposing your stunning ignorance.

Dick, Rush, and Sean are Americans because they believe in the Constitution.Spying on every single American violates the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Torturing people to make them confess violates the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

I will assume you were trying to be ironic. Otherwise, see my statement above re: stunning ignorance.

Either Cheney is honestly believing himself, and then we can all go to sleep knowing that he's the dumbest *ss in American history, or he's a Machiavellian SOB whose designs go beyond any nightmare you and I can imagine. In such case, we should all be really, really worried for ourselves, our children, our children's children, and for the future of humanity!

I usually find your comments mildly entertaining in a ignorant George Bushco selfish arrogant way, poorly reasoned and even more poorly written, but this line is pure American Truth.

I salute you for it. Great Statement.
