Fascism gets funky

Here’s a little something to mess with your heads:

Ah, if only ol’ Adolf had been a disco singer, instead of a genocidal meth-head. I might even have wished him a happy birthday for realz today…

I hereby wish everyone have a merry Marijuanukkah.

And if pot’s not your thing, here are some sobering links for you on the fascism of today:

Noam Chomsky says the US is strikingly like late Weimar Germany…and he’s old enough to remember that era, so you better heed him. And get rid of any Repugnazis and Vichy Dems you have lying around, come election day.

Teabag TV: coming soon to a boob-tube near you? Let’s hope not! Anyway, isn’t one FUX Snooze more than enough? (Or two, if you count the Chicken Noodle Network, as I do?)

Turdblossom washes his hands after every visit to the loo. Or every crucifixion of dirty hippie Jewish carpenters (same diff). Good to know, but he forgets that when you’re full of shit, and you fling feces, it also gets under your nails. Wonder when he’s gonna have HIS Macbeth moment.

And how’s this for irony: On the 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing, and also the anniversary of Hitler’s birth, right-wing nutters are still up to their same old shenanigans. Does everyone forget that McVeigh got his terrorist training from the US government, while he was in the army? And do they also forget that “a well-regulated militia” is, according to Article II, Section 2 of the US constitution itself, ruled by the president and not some bunch of Little Hitlers playing army in the woods? I guess they do. They also forget that the US military isn’t so well-regulated if it can’t–or doesn’t want to–weed out the Mussolini Piccolomini wanna-bes.

Bummer. Now I think I really need a brownie.

    So just curious…do you agree with Evo’s assertion that baldness and the evil of homosexuality is caused by eating chikin?

  2. I don’t know…I never heard him make it. Was that by any chance on the 1st of this month?

    Look here, ‘Bina. Would those be Alice B. Toklas brownies? Because if they are I’m gonna sit down on the floor and hold my breath until you figure out how to hand me one through the computer interwebsnetswhatever. Or at least make the smell come through. And no fair using canned scent.

  4. I don’t know about Alice, Jim, but the brownies I’ve got in mind are kind of minty and a little skunky, and very good for the digestion. Among other things.

    Sigh! Suddenly I feel very old. If you are ever really bored, rent the movie “Alice’s Restaurant”. Then you’ll know about Alice’s special brownies. 🙂

  6. I’m gonna have to buy it. Ain’t no way there’s any local store that rents it. But I’m familiar with the Arlo Guthrie song, which I could never make it through without laughing my ass off. It has the same effect on me as two brownies!

    I find Chomsky’s observations and reasoning very persuasive and, of course, very disconcerting. For someone with his obvious intellect, observational skills and life experiences to be so concerned about the future of democracy should be a wake-up call to everyone.
    I had to laugh at Rove when he, a few weeks ago, was confronted by Code Pink protesters at a book signing event and the Downing Street Memos came up. Rove declared the memos “a complete fabrication.” That must be news to the British government.
    As far as the 2nd amendment goes, not even the SCOTUS seems to give a rat’s ass about the well regulated militia clause. It’s apparently made of a special ink that those that think they are never safe unless they have the ability to kill someone with a gun cannot see. Not even the constitutional convention records nor the anti-federalists papers suggest the 2nd amendment is about individual rights to self defense. Of course it has gotten to the point where any attempt to regulate gun ownership now will lead to the crazies going postal. Even mass murders are used as a reason to loosen gun regulation in the U.S. now. In a way you have to admire the NRA’s propaganda campaign to garner more gun sales by using circular logic: There is too much gun violence, so we need more guns to keep us safe. Never mind that almost all guns in the hands of criminals were sold legally (gun shows) or stolen from a legal gun owner. I really hate it when people think their right to kill someone in self defense with the pull of a trigger trumps my right to live with less gun violence.
    Speaking of brownies, I prefer mine without nuts. :p

  8. Me too! Nothing against nuts, I just don’t like ’em mucking up the texture of skunky chocolate cake.
    Besides, I’d need something to munch on later, when the active ingredient kicks in…
