or, A Plausible Suggestion That Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is Huffing Styling Gel Fumes
If I had to pick one Democrat to get primaried like a sacrificial
lamb in my own version of political equality, I'd pick Debbie
Wasserman-Schultz. As Chairwoman of the DNC (Defeat 'n' Capitulation),
Schultz represents, to me, everything that is horridly wrong with the
eternally and pre-emptively supine Democratic Party. In a statement
recently, Schultz had this to say
about Alan Grayson's inflammatory fund-raising email that hit a
bullseye in comparing the Teabaggers to the KKK: “Obviously I am
disappointed in the use of that imagery. Both sides need
to dial back that kind of rhetoric and look to bring more civility into
Yes, kiddies, we're back to this, "Both sides do it" mutual finger-pointing.
Yes, kiddies, we're also back to this belly-showing of the dickless
version of the Democratic Party that still insists, despite not a
subatomic particle of evidence to support it, that if we finally start
showing the Republican Party and Tea Baggers who've made that party
their bitch, some civility why then, they'll show us some civility, too,
and we can all sit by the campfire at the annual Congressional camping
junket and sing motherfucking "Kumbaya" and have a 'smores, a Coke, a
smile and a greasy thumb up our ass.
As a fellow Jewish
Representative out of Florida, a state that's had more than its fair
share of cross burnings and lynchings, a state suffering through the
most horrible Governor in its long, swampy history, one who'd denied
Medicare expansion to his constituents because the dickless wonders of
the Democrat Party allowed redneck states to opt out of Medicaid
expansion out of respect for "states' rights
", you'd think Wasserman-Schultz would know better in her ongoing whining about the deplorable state of immoral equivalence.
And when Wasserman-Schultz finds herself on the same side of an
issue as jar-headed psychopath and cordite huffer Allen West, you know
something's rotten in the sunshine state of Florida.
West, former Congressman from Florida, is always right on target with
his comments, we all know, and his recent Facebook post was exactly
right. It’s the “white liberal progressives” who are the real racists in
It is obvious that liberals are the real racists here... Worse, they use
racism as a tool to fool African Americans into voluntarily walking
onto the liberal’s plantation.
Yeah, a vicious
Uncle Tom like West, a guy who was in favor of every voter suppression
law and bill that would've disenfranchised his people and who used an
exclusively white Hell's Angel's wannabe biker gang
as his personal security during the 2010 election and solicited angry,
white votes in some Bizarro World simulacrum of post-racism, is claiming
liberals like Grayson is leading his forgotten people not to the Promised Land but "the liberal's plantation."
Well, unless West is talking about Arianna Huffington's bloated blog, I
have no idea what the fuck he's talking about. Fortunately, many people
in West's district didn't either and they voted out this real-life Stephen of CandyLand
after one term. And West is obviously too stupid or deluded to realize
he's just a useful house nigger for every teabagger/Aryan Supremacist
(but I'm being tautological) who thinks shoving West into the limelight
to repeat their prejudices and conspiracy theories actually qualifies
them for post-racial status.
But Wasserman-Schultz's attempt to get her own belly rubbed by the
Right Wing Powers That Be has absolutely no basis in fact. Let's pick
just a few very recent examples of the Teabaggers' obvious and
indisputable ties to the antebellum cross-burners of our day and age:
White Nationalists Descend on D.C. for National Policy Institute Conference. (Which starts today)
Steve King and White Nationalist CPAC Panel Warn that America's Greatest Threat is its Diversity.
SPLC: Former Congressman Tancredo to Address White Supremacists.
IREHR Report: Tea Parties - Racism, Anti-Semitism and the Militia Impulse.
(To which maybe Wasserman-Schultz ought to pay strict attention)
White Supremacist Stampede
Steve Smith, White Supremacist, Elected To Republican Party Committee In Pennsylvania County
"People & Power - White Power USA (Documentary)"

Meet the 'Southern Avenger'! Another Member of Rand Paul's Team Has White Supremacist Past.
Mississippi Tea Party Senate Challenger Attended Neo-Confederate Gatherings
And that's just a few examples I've found from the past two or three
years. Obviously, this is just the tip of the iceberg or burning cross,
as it were. (Just as a personal aside, it's interesting that
Wasserman-Schultz chose to take Alan Grayson to task over a fundraising
email and not Rachel Maddow, who recently weighed in
on this and drew similar conclusions).
And the indisputable, inevitable, incontrovertible conclusion a
thinking person must make is that the Tea Party movement is hardly an
original concept and they didn't just spontaneously appear on the scene
in the spring of 2009, fully-formed like Athena from the skull of Zeus.
These teabaggers are recycled, regurgitated and, until 2009, long since
discredited and very politically-incorrect Birchers, KKK klansmen,
neoNazis, skinheads and unaffiliated angry, southern redneck Republicans
who cannot fathom why so many people could elect a biracial president
when, in their razor-narrow world view, no black man should even be
called "sir" much less "Mr. President." It was supposed to be the white
man's Arab Spring, minus the Arabs and legitimate grievances. But something funny happened on the way to the cross-burning:
The Koch Brothers and their ridiculously-named Americans For Prosperity
("1% at a Time, Anyways") and Dick Armey's FreedomWorks and various
527s and 501(c)3 groups cynically latched on, spoon-fed them their
talking points about how evil arch liberals like Obama were and
eventually the parasite seeking populism became the host, with the Tea
Baggers being demoted to the role of parasites.
And now we're
seeing signs that the tea bagger fleas and ticks are being scratched
off by the increasingly irritated host and they're not too happy about
it. Now they're threatening to primary even the Republicans that, during
Bush II, we thought were the worst of the worst, such as Mississippi's
Thad Cochran, who's now considered too liberal and now has a primary
challenger who makes Strom Thurmond look like Jerry Garcia after a brick
The Debbie Wasserman-Schultzes and Jon Stewarts
seriously need to get their heads out their asses, walk off their sound
stages and climate-controlled offices and talk to real
(and by that, I don't mean the "real Americans" in Sarah Palin's
rose-tinted clown car windshield), specifically liberals and
progressives who don't feel the need to throw verbal brickbats and
firebombs at the White House when they have legitimate grievances,
people who don't throw bricks through the windows
of Republican Congressmen who opposed the health care law (as all of them did).
So, Debbie, do Dallas sometime. Or San Diego. Or Tampa. Or any other
right wing cesspool of a city that proudly waves the Stars and Bars and
Gadsden flags. Your attempts to get your belly rubbed will only get it
kicked. Your genuflections and bowing and scraping before these
inexplicably angry teabaggers will only get you curb-stomped
And maybe people like Thad Cochran shouldn't get primaried by cryptofascists and neoconfederates. Maybe it's Democrats like you
who ought to get primaried so you can make way for the real thing.
