[Here in Mendo we have our Sunday Ukiah Daily Journal served frequently with a prominent helping of steaming garbage from the far right on the op-ed pages. Here to save the day, The Three Mouskateers, Messrs. Mark Albrecht, John Hendricks and Mark Rohloff have taken it upon themselves to "promote the conservative point of view in Ukiah". They do not appeal with logic nor documented systematic analysis. It's all "pot calling the kettle black" and pure, red-hot, hyperbolic hate.
Marvin Gentz, bless his heart, and others strive mightily to counter their feverish, inept, ineloquent spewing, and my fingers are getting itchy to blast them back.
With apologies to the community, public service sometimes requires us to acknowledge the existence of those who would destroy democracy if we didn't stay vigilant. Here is their latest (UDJ 5/27/12) from the fire-and-brimstone gates of Mousekateer hell... -DS]
In the beginning of our once great country, the United States of America was founded on the joint understanding that God was our guide and partner in the enterprise of freedom. Those who landed at Plymouth Rock sought the guidance of the Almighty, too, and eventually premised the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution on this relationship. In fact, the First Amendment to the Constitution states freedom of religion to be the cornerstone of our enterprise.
Today we are at a crossroads dictated by the guise of modernity and the corrupt influence of liberalism [sez you]. At first the founders clearly rejected the influence of the French Revolution and chose God and freedom for mankind. All of humanity must now choose between the freedom of morality or the tyranny of the fall [sez who?]. We do not have to be slaves to liberalism [or conservatism]. We must assert ourselves in order to save the remnant of our nation from the evil of current thinking as promulgated by the liberal minority, yes, minority, of the left [sez you]. This is clearly the time to stand up and be counted for freedom or tyranny [hear, hear].
The question is black and white [blatant racism]. No longer can we compromise [yes, you've made that loud and clear]. If we do not turn back tyranny in this coming election (only five months away) we may never again be able to save our freedom [bombast, hyperbole]. To be sure, the left has systematically subverted our institutions with the smoke of Satan (the evil one) and it will be hard to dislodge [oh Bullshit!]. It all begins with your vote. If you fail to vote now, in November, then ruin is in the 90th percentile all but guaranteed [by who?]. Even as the tea party or the shot at Concord Bridge was the first round, we must now strike a blow of historical consequence for our freedom and the freedom of all mankind [more bloviating hyperbolic bullshit].
If this present administration remains for another term, absolute disaster is certain [sez who?]. We are in deep, deep, perilous trouble across the board [thanks to Reagan, Clinton, and Bush]. The so-called leader of the “free” world, a failed apprentice of affirmative action [undisguised racism], has led our nation and the free world, whatever remnant there still is, down the road to perdition [omg, perdition?].
Look around and you see failure everywhere and they, the left, are calling for more of the same [wow, we of the left love failure and hate success with a passion?]. The moral foundation of the Almighty has been rejected [I trust you are on a first-name basis?]. The culture is in vulgar and corrupt shambles [those gd gays]. The financial and economic entities are in near ruin and they dare call for more of the same [oh yeah, we progressives are always calling for more wars, more wall street corruption, more trickle-down nonsense]. It is now only a short step to total catastrophe and universal chaos if we don’t stop this reckless spending immediately [because, as we all know, FDR ended the great depression by reckless spending and we can't have that!] As one can expect, the left is demanding more of the same. They insist on more and more government spending without any reasonable expectation of ever being able to repay these already overwhelming debts we have accrued [by Republican Presidents!]. We must stop it now [we three being your superheroes here to help save your day].
The hour is upon us as we observe the final act of the tragedy of the presidential disaster that began in 2008 [Uh, no. That would be the 1980 and 2000 tragedies.] There are many indications that point to the collapse and death throes of the Obama administration [you wish] and even of the man’s political career. As his career has been predicated upon the fantasy of his Utopian ideology [democracy] combined with inexperience, incompetence, inability, and corruption, provide the ugly scene of political demise [oops, wrong president]. He now “struts and frets his hour on the stage and then (we hope) is heard no more.” [oops, wrong president again]. Truly we are witnesses to tragedy [barely averted], or so it seems.
We must take back our country [nope, you oblivious numbskulls fucked it over too much already]. We must reclaim democracy [by eliminating eligible voters and corrupting the voting machines?]. The Obama tragedy has been predicated on controlling every facet of our lives [the kettle is black]. There isn’t anything we can do today that isn’t effected [affected?] or controlled by government. The administration has taken advantage of the tears in our government fabric to regulate and/or legislate away our freedom [kettle is black]. This, of course, is the very definition of tyranny, to be sure fascism at its worst [kettle is black]. The thought police (political correctness) effect [affect?] our lives and minds. The leviathan of Obamacare is a regulatory monster to be defined and implemented by the liberal bureaucrats as they go along [yes, we need to take back the commons... health, education, resources, all need to be brought back under democratic control rather than crony corporate capitalism]. Their first assault has been an attempt to eliminate Freedom of Religion [aw, bullshit]. We cannot survive with this atrocity of leftism. Another fantasy of the vain pursuit of Utopia [democracy]. Yes, the very definition of insanity is to keep trying a failed program again and again and expecting a different result, which of course never happens [hear, hear!].
We must stop the denigration of mankind across the board [omg, do we progressives hate mankind...]. We cannot tolerate more lies in our educational system [hear, hear!]. We cannot tolerate more decay in the family [get those gd women back in the kitchen!]. The list goes on and on [No it doesn't. It's just the women and the gays and the minorities and the immigrants, and, oh yeah, us progressives, silly]. If we don’t stop this runaway train now it will only get worse, to a point of a final explosion of apocalyptic finality [omg, anything but the apocalypse!].
We can stop it. We must stop it. Vote for freedom [of corporate control].
