Death on Two Legs - The Progression of Incitement

The quotes below represent a small sample of the conscious, or otherwise, incitement campaign by self-agrandizers who suck the brains out of millions of overly impressionable eyes and ears.

Stan Lee wrote –  “With great power, there must also come great responsibility.”  It’s a narrative caption on a Spiderman comic book.

It’s also an appropriately illustrative application of Mr. Lee’s wisdom given that the characters quoted below are cartoonish in almost every way except, of course, for the excruciating socio-physical bile they produce.

Of particular note; the LaRouche Organization, who takes credit for creating and distributing posters of President Obama with a Hitler mustache and other Nazi-related defamatory literature directed at the President at local town hall meetings, actually sides itself with Nazi ideologically.   Their Anti-semitism, minimizing of the holocaust and position that Nazi war criminals should NOT be prosecuted is well known.  But now they’re using Nazi imagery to vilify?  And what was WWII about anyway?

In the historical words of Joseph Welch –  “Have You No Sense of Decency”.

The perversion of common sense.

Below are a couple entertainers who are selling ad space, writers (sic) selling books, religious zealots adrift in a chasm of misinterpretation and a few bona-fide wack-jobs.  It would be comical if they didn’t have so much influence (tragically) over so many whose confused complacency prevent them from researching the twisted allegory of the irresponsible and agendized rhetoric these demagouges  incessantly spew.

  • “I mean, let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back; I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.”

GLENN BECK:

  • “This president, I think, has exposed himself as a guy — over and over and over again — who has a deep seated hatred for white people or white culture, I don’t know what it is . . . I’m not saying he doesn’t like white people. I’m saying he has a problem, this guy is, I believe, a racist.”
  • “They think they — and they — they — you know what? At this point, gang, I’m not sure, they may be able to because they are so far ahead of us. They know what they’re dealing against; most of America does not yet. Most of America doesn’t have a clue as to what’s going on. There is a coup going on. There is a stealing of America, and the way it is done, it has been done through the — the guise of an election, but they lied to us the entire time.”
  • “When you enlist in the U.S. military, you have take an oath that says you’re gonna support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies – foreign and domestic – we talk a lot on this program about the foreign threats – maybe we should spend some time tonight on the domestic one….the physical threat may be developing domestically as well,”
MICHELLE MALKIN:

  • “I have to tell you, in general, I’m skeptical of anything that has Bill of Rights tacked on to it”
  • “Why didn’t Obama save every child from drowning? Why just one? This myopia stems from his old, outdated liberal-elitist sensibility which states that the only drowning child worth saving is the one who has the connections and the wherewithal to be in the general vicinity of America’s so-called Swimmer-in-Chief.”
  • “Debate” Ezra Klein? What a perverse distraction and a laughable waste of time that would be. And that’s what they really want, isn’t it? To distract and waste time so they can foist their agenda on the country unimpeded.”
KARL ROVE:
Karl Rove
  • “Just get me a f**king faith-based thing. Got it?”
  • “Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 in the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers,”

  • “God said it, I didn’t. I was just agreeing with God.”
  • Asked if there are others for whom Drake is praying “imprecatory prayer,” Drake hesitated before answering that there are several. “The usurper that is in the White House is one, B. Hussein Obama,” he said.
  • Colmes later pressed Drake to ensure he had heard the preacher right.
  • “Are you praying for his death?” Colmes asked.
  • “Yes,” Drake replied.
  • “So you’re praying for the death of the president of the United States?”
  • “Yes.”

  • (New Solidarity, August 22, 1978) that the Zionist Lobby is “the most visible of the internal enemies of the United States–and of the human race–at this specific moment. Every policy it is currently pushing is pure evil….”
  • (“New Pamphlet to Document Cult Origins of Zionism,” New Solidarity, Dec. 8, 1978) that the 1.5 million Jews whom he concedes died were the victims of “the Nazi policy of labor-intensive ‘appropriate technology’ for the employment of ‘inferior races,’ a small fraction of the tens of millions of others–especially Slavs–who were murdered….” (In other words, LaRouche denies there was any deliberate gas-chamber extermination campaign against the Jews.)

  • “We should invade their countries, kill their leaders, and convert them to Christianity.”
  • “The ethic of conservation is the explicit abnegation of man’s dominion over the Earth. The lower species are here for our use. God said so: Go forth, be fruitful, multiply, and rape the planet — it’s yours. That’s our job: drilling, mining and stripping. Sweaters are the anti-Biblical view. Big gas-guzzling cars with phones and CD players and wet bars — that’s the Biblical view.”
  • “What I find so deliciously amusing and so vastly hypocritical about this whole Asshole-in-Chief incident is that Obama’s rescuing this poor boy from drowning is completely at odds with his uber-liberal-facist policies of deliberately impregnating unsuspecting women just so they can be forced to undergo abortions.”

Dick Cheney vs Eric Holder – Should We Investigate the CIA?

ex-Vice President Cheney has strong words for Attorney General Eric Holder’s pending investigation of past wrongs…what a surprise.

Cheney vs Holder

Should a special prosecutor investigate alleged criminal acts by the CIA?

According to ex-Vice President Dick Cheney and former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, the answer is a resounding “NO”.  Their unified opinion is that it would harm the morale of the CIA in wartime and could compromise the work of the agency.  They also believe that what’s done is done.  Why go back when the laws have been changed and problems  corrected?

Dick Cheney argues that the agents who carried out the illegal maneuvers should not be prosecuted because they were following orders.  For once, I completely agree with Dick Cheney.  The paranoid, autocratic-minded and contemptuous government official who gave the instructions is the one who should be prosecuted.  Yes, I’m speaking of Dick Cheney.

We impeached a president once who thought he was above the law, but apparently there are others who’ve forgotten about that dent in our liberty or have dismissed it.

Did the torture tactics work?

On Sunday, (Aug. 30, 2009) John McCain stated on CBS’ “Face the Nation“:

the use of torture on terrorism suspects violated international law, didn’t work, and actually helped al Qaeda recruit additional members. – John McCain

Back in May, Former FBI agent Ali Soufan also indicated that the “harsh interrogation techniques may actually have hindered the collection of intelligence, causing a high-value prisoner to stop cooperating.”

The FBI, the CIA and the Department of Justice have all made statements that torture is ineffective in that the information extracted is unreliable.

But if you ask Dick Cheney, he says it kept our country from attacks.

Inhibit US Military Progress in Afghanistan?

If those who broke international law are brought to justice, will that compromise the US objective in Afghanistan?  The goal is to end the Taliban and Al-Qaeda’s influence and power in the region.  In order to do that, it would seem necessary to have the people of Afghanistan on our side.

Foreign occupiers have unsuccessfully attempted to rule that barren strip of wasteland for 2000 years.  It seems hardly likely that success can be achieved independent of the people that live there.

It would stand to reason then that one way to aid the repair of our tarnished reputation overseas would be to address the sinister acts of this slice of evil that permeated our recent history.  Of course that would be the second reason to prosecute those responsible for reducing the world’s perception of our nation to an uncontrollable mob of hooligan hypocrites.  The first is that it’s the right thing to do.

What’s Cheney Afraid of?

What isn’t he afraid of, although in this case his own incarceration could be a start.  Any who participated in these egregious acts should be put on notice, but those who ordered the deeds need to be held accountable.  For those responsible and other authorities who sat idly while our constitution was spat on,  the full letter of the law needs to be exercised.  Why would people of integrity act any other way? Are you surprised at the united front of those who share culpability? Are you comfortable with allowing alleged criminal activity for the elite be disregarded, again?

CIA Morale, World Perception and National Security

Former CIA agent Jack Rice has stated on “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” that the agents who carried out the rogue acts were a minority.  That the supervisors who handed down the orders were also few, compared to the many respectable, dignified and honorable men and women in the service of our great nation.  Saying the investigation will harm morale is like saying removing the bad apples is going to spoil the bunch.  It’s bass-ackwards

If the world sees that we have identified an instance of wrongdoing and are taking responsible action to correct it, won’t that improve our image?  President Obama took legal moves to block the release of detainee photos showing misbehavior of war prisoners with the correct conviction that the images in question would only harm our image and put lives overseas at risk.

In my humble worthless opinion, crimes against people, our constitution and our integrity have been committed and retribution is required.  Doing the right thing is never wrong.  I applaud the courage of Attorney General Eric Holder.


John, George, Dick and Sarah

(Weds. September 24th, 2008)

Telephone rings, an elderly gentleman in a nice suit picks up the phone.

John:

Hello?

George:

Hey John, what the hell’s going on down there?

John:

Things are going really well George.

George:

What the hell are you doing stopping the campaign, are you loco?

John:

Well, Sarah thought people’d think I really care about this wall street thingy if I suspended the campaign, you know, align my priorities …

George:

John:

But, I don’t have a plan.
