Integral minded people do not stoop to segments entitled, ‘Worst Person in the World,’ nor do they deem others ‘Enemies of the Week,’ and they certainly do not put people ‘on notice’ for any of their political beliefs. We shouldn’t even ‘wag our finger’ at anyone unless, in doing so, it is hoped to guide them back onto the path toward enlightened self-realization. Instead of these crass attacks upon people’s character, we are going to start our own column: ‘I’m Calling You Out, You Civics Class Dropout Douchebag!’ This week, on our first second-tier inspired mission of ‘I’m Calling You Out, You Civics Class Dropout Douchebag,’ we focus on nudging Georgia Rep. Paul Broun toward something people at the edge of the Republican cocoon are referring to as ‘reality.’ Think of it like Sarah Palin staring at those distant Russian shores through her 600 dollar Oakley sunglasses. Vague shapes are appearing on those far away conservative beachheads all around America. Congressman, some of your brethren are wrestling with their souls and the future of Republicanism. You can join the pity party any time.
In a report to the Associated Press recently, Rep. Broun stated that he was worried about the Obama Administration pursuing Gestapo-like tactics to enforce a ‘radical Marxism.’ So much for an Obama honeymoon period. The guy hasn’t even written his manifesto yet, and you’re judging him?
Let me splain. No, that will take too long. Let me sum up. Having Gestapo-like tactics for any cause is the problem. When you give up on the systems of checks and balances that has sustained our democracy…well, let’s backup for a moment by pulling forward. Obama is probably not going to pursue radical Marxism, although Duck Soup was a classic in any circle. The problem is, and has always been, your guy. Bush dismantled two hundred years of the delicate balance of power, so now Obama has the ability to do the very things you fear. You were not crying when one of your guys trashed the constitution, because he would only use this power to get the bad guys.But now you are beginning to see the possible ramifications of your short-sighted anti-Americanism. Yes, dismantling the forefather’s vision of our democracy is anti-American. If the founding fathers ever met Sean Hannity in a dark alley, a blanket party would no doubt ensue. You can bet that they would be sticking more than a feather in his cap.
Let’s use a fictional analogy. Remember when Frodo wielded the Ring of Power back in middle-Earth? He started out as an innocent, but the absolute power of the ring corrupted him by the third movie. And I think Samwise Gamgee did things to him while he slept (that’s just a theory). OK, bad example, but disturbing none the less.
You missed the main point, congressman, and not just of that tangential Tolkien analogy. You missed this point when it was actually important. You know, when you could have spoken out and hindered our president’s grasp toward absolute power. Where were you when Bush released his goblins into Rohan from the spires of Isengard? If it’s going to be socialism now, so be it. When you find yourself in a banana republic, make with the splits. Don’t forget, congressman, Canada has beer and hockey. Perhaps in practice of this new distribution of power, you should donate half of your annual salary to charities. You know, for practice. If Obama does turn out to be a monster, remember, you created him. You forged the ‘one ring’ in the fires of Mt. Doom (aka, Atlanta). Republicans—those true blooded slices of ‘real’ America—are the doctor Frankensteins of our time. Whatever the future holds, the reparation check is on your hands. Whatever ill-conceived super agenda is pushed by any and all future presidents—in any and all ideological directions—you bear some of the blame. You get what you deserve. Didn’t you read my article on Bush, Fascism, and the other ‘N’ Word? The article is based on actual, real life—happening right now—fascist moments in America, which you, sir, supported. The fear of nefarious evil ideologies that may creep up from the liberal bowels of bureaucracy really pales in comparison to what has already been done to our country. You have fallen for what has come to be known as the pre-Poke fallacy. For that I am calling you out to a Zell Miller style duel! Meet me outside of Roosevelt Middle School at 3:15PM (after shop class). I’m going to open up a jar of integral whoop-ass on your sorry civicsless brain pan, congressman. Then we can price some condos in Alberta.
