I’m not a Democrat or a Republican. What I’m against is the bullying coming from the right. Always from the right. Always. This is a flat-out attempt to ridicule the bullies and throw some light on the heroes. I've got lots to work with.

I don't own any of these images but the snark is all mine.

Quote reblogged from Moral Anarchism with 121 notes

The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.

George Orwell (via moralanarchism)

Like by creating a myth that Ronald Reagan ended Communism.  Like that.

Paul Ryan tries again to make us forget his Ayn Rand worship
“Republican budget boy Paul Ryan just keeps trying to pretend that Ayn Rand is not one of the most important influences on his economic views. Ryan recently came up with a list of his six favorite books about economics and democracy, and, Jonathan Chait points out:
More interesting—and revealing of the direction Ryan is headed—are the final two books Ryan does name: The Way the World Works by Jude Wanniski and Wealth and Poverty by George Gilder. I have read both. Wealth and Poverty is a weird, rambly, mostly unoriginal recitation of free-market homilies whose influence largely derives from the fact that it came out just as Ronald Reagan swept to power and was thus seen as an intellectual manifesto for the new Republican Party. The Way the World Works is a novel argument that the entire history of the world can be explained by changes of tax rates. The fall of the Roman Empire, the rise of the Nazis — Wanniski attempts to explain it all as a result of taxes. It is a work of genuine derangement on the same intellectual level as the sorts of unpublishable hand-scrawled diatribes that I used to scan through when I sorted the mail as a magazine intern.”

When do we get to say that the conservative mind is in free fall?

really sick of seeing so much hate directed towards the police on here. look, we get it, you prefer sting’s solo work, i like it too alright? that doesnt mean ‘every little thing she does is magic’ and ‘can’t stand losing you’ arent awesome jams. ‘roxanne’ and ‘don’t stand so close to me’ are classic, don’t even get me started on ‘spirits in the material world’. just stop ok?

Cornel West: “He posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit. We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency” →

"[Obama] always moves to the middle ground. It turned out that historically, this was not a moment for a middle-ground politician. We needed a high-ground statesperson and it’s clear now he’s not the one.

And so what did he do? Every time you’re headed toward middle ground what do you do? You go straight to the establishment and reassure them that you’re not too radical, and try to convince them that you are very much one of them so you end up with a John Brennan, architect of torture [as CIA Director]. Torturers go free but they’re real patriots so we can let them go free. The rule of law doesn’t mean anything.”

If gerrymandering clearly helps Republicans maintain the house, how does “both sides do it” rhetoric mean to dissenting conservative commenters?

liberalsarecool:

John Boehner, the highest ranking Republican, is from a gerrymandered safe district in Ohio.

Gerrymandering is the core of the GOP strategy.

"Both sides do it" is the weakest comment you can make while we are in a present-time gerrymandered House.

"Both sides do it" is Republican mayonnaise: it has no substance, holds their arguments together and smears the other side.
