They are a hate-filled lot, those who hang onto the far-right end of the political spectrum. I’ve held my nose and, for the past three days, I’ve waded into deep muck to read what the right-wing bloggers have been writing about the killing of bin Laden. Not surprisingly, they are ho-hum about the entire affair- from mild praise with asterisks to downright disillusion and disbelief that bin Laden is actually dead. It really strengthens my hypothesis that many on the right live their lives entirely entombed in an altogether other, fabricated world of delusion.
Frequent contributor to this blog, Sepp, wants to see the body before he will give credit to this president for accomplishing what GW Bush failed to do in his eight years. Yesterday Hardnox, who blocks any of my comments on his blog, wrote, ” As the story unfolds, zero knew about OBL’s location since last August. Nine months of dithering but he had to wait for the right time.” By the way, ‘zero’ refers to the president; he cannot even write his name. Dithering? Of course,Gates, Petreaus, and the CIA all apparently ‘dithered’ too. Blogger Common Sense wrote about the killing of bin Laden, It has been awhile but this is the second time that I have found reason to congratulate you. That doesn’t seem to be much of a record in nearly 2 and ½ years – but I didn’t expect that you would do that well given your lack of experience and obvious biases. Pathetic, just plain pathetic.
Apparently, Obama’s blackness, his dubious birth-data, and his party affiliation all combine to de-legitimize him as President and Commander-in-Chief. Only a white, birth-confirmed Republican, like George W. Bush has any merit, ‘experience’ and is non-biased. That’s why, of course, GW Bush gets praise from the right-wing for ‘getting’ Saddam, the two-bid dictator who had nothing to do with September 11th.
By the way, Hardnox and Common Sense proudly advertise that they are former Marines. I never knew that only registered Republicans could join the Marine Corps. I was under the assumption that the military was open to all Americans and that there was no political litmus test inorder to serve.
Yet, it plays well in the make-believe World of Delusion in which many on the far-right have starring roles.Maybe some day, when I have absolutely nothing better to occupy my time, I’ll write a one-act play that takes place in the right-wing World of Delusion. Of course it will be pure fantasy and the characters will be unbelievable. But, hey, it’s all Disneyland stuff and people go there to escape the real world, don’t they?
