I’m With Stupid

By mike flugennockThursday - April 16th, 2015Categories: 2016 Election, Clintontime, Party Animals, elections, media

So, Hillary Clinton is taking another whack at becoming America’s Margaret Thatcher — as if we hadn’t seen this coming since about 2009.

A lot’s been made about the vacuous, smarmy campaign kickoff video, of course, but an equal amount of confusion and mockery has arisen around Hillary’s campaign logo. Aside from the fact that it looks like the logo for a plus-size women’s fashion warehouse outlet, there’s also the matter of the arrow pointing to the right.

It goes without saying that a lot of your denser Liberals and Pwogwessives are puzzled; one Pwog tweeted to the effect that it’s a mistake, and that the arrow wasn’t pointing in the direction Mrs. Bill wanted to take the country in.

Oh, for Christ’s sake, somebody tie me to a railroad track. Of course that’s the direction she wants to take the country. This should be obvious to anyone who’s been paying attention to Hillary ever since she carpetbagged her way into the Senate — with her support for US/NATO bombing campaigns in Serbia, her support for the Patriot Act, her support for Israel, and the way she damn’ near broke her neck rushing to support Bush’s crimes in Iraq. You’d have to have been living in a cave for the past fifteen years (this would take in most Liberals) to not realize what a horrid, bloody, greedy warmongering neocon authoritarian she is.

God Save The Queen

Y’know that old saying about how history happens the first time as tragedy and the second time as farce? Well, what happens if it happens as farce the first time? You know, like when Obama was first running, and all the Liberals were screaming about how if you didn’t support him you were some kind of racist, even though anybody who did even the most cursory examination of his background would’ve told you that the guy was a total sham, a lightweight who pretty much skated into every office he held, a classic Clinton Democrat, a flunkie of the Pentagon and Wall Street?

So, here comes Hillary Clinton, taking another stab at it now that Obama’s warmed the seat up for her, and I can just see it now, the same old shit — if I don’t support Hillary, I’m a mean old sexist Teabagger, even though anybody who hasn’t been living in a goddamn’ cave for the past twenty years totally knows the score on this nasty old harpie. Anyone who points out her involvement on the board of Wal-Mart, her support for Israeli atrocities in Palestine, her support for the disaster in Iraq, or her support for corporate dictatorship is going to get a bunch of shrieking from geezing old ’70s dead-enders who can’t talk about anything but Roe V. Wade and the Glass Ceiling™.

So, folks, would it be safe to assume that American Feminism is pretty much dead? I mean, c’mon — Glass Ceiling? “Lean In”? Roe V. Wade? Is that all you tired old broads have got for us?

But, more importantly — who’s going to hold Hillary’s crown while she takes the oath of office?

BLAST FROM YER PAST: Happy Birthday, “Sweet A16″

moreworldA16hippie200x310This Was What Democracy Looked Like!

Time once again to fire up the old TARDIS, and dive into this action-packed day of gleeful antiglob frenzy at the IMF, World Bank, and all over downtown DC on April 16, 2000 — and, unlike the ’60s, if you can remember it, you were there!

In the Spring of 2000, Ralph Nader and the Green Party were calling bullshit on the Democrats and challenging their stranglehold on the US Left, the Democratic Party was pissing in its shoes, and the US Left couldn’t have been happier — as opposed to today, when the US Left is sitting on its hands, and the “progressives” couldn’t be happier to be marching over a cliff behind Barack Obama and his cult of personality.

This was a time when The Movement™ was riding high on a wave of energy and solidarity after its victory in the Seattle Rebellion, and was full of hope for bringing about change in our future — before the Democratic Party got its hooks into us. (D’oh, sorry; I just said “hope” and “change” there, didn’t I?)

While the Anticapitalathon’s scraggly gaggle is ignored by global capital and its fawning media, now would be a good time to remember more inspiring times — times when The Movement™ wasn’t afraid to protest against a Democratic Administration, times when The Movement™ wasn’t cowed and intimidated by the Democratic Party and the AFL-CIO.
