"I'm not here as a serf or a vassal..."

Becky Gerritson addresses our new overlords with the old fashioned notion that she need not beg and that she is a free woman.

What a regressive, radical, idiotic idea. Imagine believing that she is a free person, entitled to associate with whomever she chooses and to engage in free speech and free thinking on matters of cultural and political importance. She had better learn her place.

The Divine Miss M put her there days ago. So Ms. Gerritson is not just idiotic and extreme, she's a trifle slow as well.

I don't believe I've run across The Divine Miss M passionately attacking President Peace Prize's Organizing for America or or MediaMatters for receiving non-profit status, so one can be excused for being slightly suspicious that Miss M is not the least concerned about the finer legal points in determining non-profit status for political organizations per se, but is very, very gleeful about the use of the power of the IRS to silence political speech with which she disagrees.

The last time I checked, that was considered a trait of fascism.

When training horses, there is an old saying, "Violence starts where knowledge ends." When one is handling a horse, you never need to use rough methods if you understand the nature of the horse and stay connected to that truth. When you lose sight of the truth, or you reach a point where your knowledge is weak, whips, gadgets and bits become the only answer.

I've always thought that this saying applied to liberals as much as to horses. Liberals hide their ignorance of human nature behind a veneer of knowledge, presenting themselves as more complex and nuanced than than those who see the truth plainly. This deception works for awhile, but inevitably liberals/fascists/socialists/communists all run out of what little knowledge they have and then they reach for their whips...and guns.

And they do so with the unquestioned assumption that they remain kinder, wiser, and more moral than those on whom they train those guns.


  1. That was some moving testimony. If my radar is right they don't have any idea what's coming. They thought tea partiers were angry leading up to 2010, they ain't seen nothing yet.

    1. RG, I sincerely hope you're right. But my spidey sense tells me we are the walking dead. We are already defeated and we don't even know it.

      Oh, we'll turn out and vote in record numbers. Everyone you've ever known will vote, and then we will lose and be told all the conservatives apparently stayed home. And then what? Revolution? Riots in the streets? Arms and fighting and crazy stuff? I don't think so. Sadly, I think most people on the right are more law-abiding than they are revolutionary. The revolutionaries are on the left, and they won't hesitate to use their guns (military, police, etc) if it comes to that.

    2. I'm not despairing. I don't really know why though. Maybe my subconscious has figured something out but hasn't explained itself.
