Just watched all the Sunday talking head shows and had laugh out loud moments with Howie Kurtz and his line up of left wing dolts AKA Mainstream media. So as the anger surrounding the health care bill escalates, many in the media are reporting how the anger surrounding the health care bill is escalating!
Now I've been down this road so many times I could navigate it blindfolded and covered in peanut butter.
It goes like this: for the media, anger is only okay if its targets meet their stereotypical, romanticized criteria. Meaning: the corporation, the conservative, profit or the daddy who never loved them.
Here's a list of people doing angry things the media is okay with:
-People calling Bush a Nazi
-Students and non students rioting on college campuses
-Animal rights freaks dousing rich folks with paint
-Actors wishing average folks would get rectal cancer
-Bureaucrats labeling military vets as potential violent right wing extremists
-Radical environmentalists advocating violence against loggers
-Pranksters throwing pies at conservative commentators (you know, somehow they never pie Michael Moore, which makes him sad; he likes pie)
But this health care bill anger is different from all that - not just because it's right, but because it involves Obama. And being angry at Obama is like being mad at Santa Claus. How can you be mad at Santa, when he brings us so many gifts?
And so, this anger is scary! It's a mark of incivility! It's deadly!
But you have a right to be angry. Unlike the entitlements we're saddled with until death, being angry is free and actually works! Shit--it's deficit neutral. But we need to define why we're angry - instead of letting our adversaries do it for us.
We are angry not because we lost, but that we lost to losers. I'm not talking about Obama, or the Dems. They're winners, sadly. I'm talking about progressivism. The reason why I'm angry, my friends are angry, and my imaginary unicorn Captain Sparkles is angry - is because the greatest, most winningest country in the history of the world, just embraced the loser's doctrine.
For two hundred plus years we've kicked ass, and we're now choosing the belief system of the idiots whose asses we've kicked and some we've saved.
So that's why I'm angry. And why you're angry too.
And when jackasses try to take away your right to be angry - by calling it racist or extremist - tell them they're the racists. Because it's those tools who assume that anger can only be about race. And if they disagree with you, then clearly they're not just racists - but probably homophobic cannibals, too.
