Short ‘n’ Stubby: Leftist Authoritarian Bitches-R-Us


Yes, kiddies, Ms. Manx is back. Fear the Manx! For she brings you glad tidings of great joy, at least for us leftists. For you rightards out there (particularly the name-calling projectionist trolls from across the pond), well, not so much…

First off, a cannon blast from Keith Olbermann and John Dean. Dean uncovered some startling, long-forgotten findings in researching his latest book, and it bodes ill for those who call me a “leftist authoritarian bitch”. 1% of the left is an awfully small number, and I’m not in it.

Next up, the lies of the right get unmasked by the News Corpse. What? FUX Snooze isn’t popular? They lied even to the Nielsen ratings people? You don’t say. Well, they certainly wouldn’t, being rightard obscurantists and all. But I’ll say it, because I believe in REAL freedom of speech! We leftist authoritarian bitches are funny that way.

Then, Candace Gingrich neatly dissects how right-wing authoritarianism works in schools, enabling bullies to exclude queer and disabled kids from their precious toy proms, and also to hound an innocent immigrant to death. And of course, Candace would know about right-wing authoritarians and their sneaky ways of playing hell; her brother, Newt, was the one who formulated that infamous “word list” that was geared directly at undermining the left. Happily, she is his polar opposite both personally and politically. Which is why she’s lined up on the side of free speech, too, in exposing how insidious deceptions work.

And while we’re on the subject of bullies, insidious deceptions, and the use of free speech to unmask the truth, please read this excellent piece by my fellow Canadian, Josh Frappier. And then spread it far and wide. It deserves to go viral. Let’s roll!

Nations can be bullies, too, as Norman Finkelstein points out in this worthwhile longer piece at Alternet. It’s an excerpt from his latest book, and dovetails nicely with the whole theme of right-wing authoritarianism, lying and obfuscation I’ve got going on here.

And does anyone seriously buy Glenn Beck’s “I’m just an entertainer” schtick? And where have we heard all that before? From the Coultergeist, who seriously believes her own smack? From the Pigman, whose “entertainment” is all strictly political and authoritarian in nature (his followers are called dittoheads after all!) If these people are really just entertainers, and their shit is really just meant to be funny, then don’t put them on the news. Don’t clutter up the talk shows with them. Give them their own SCTV-style sketch-comedy show, and watch ’em tank. And then pull the plug, and never let us hear from them again. We have better things to do with the concept of free speech, and time’s a-wastin’.

And finally, isn’t it funny how the Randroids all claim to be libertarians when their beloved prophet-idiotess was anything but? Sorry, people, but “right-wing” and “libertarian” are opposing terms that cancel each other out. Ditto “left-wing” and “authoritarian”, as John Dean found out to his utter surprise (see my first link again, if you don’t believe me.) People who worship sociopaths who in turn worshipped psychopaths are NOT libertarian by any stretch of the imagination.

Right-wing nuts, you are hereby my bitches. You may now kneel down, hands behind your back, and lick my boots. I won’t compel you, of course, as I’m terribly “authoritarian” that way.

    And the source of the research for Dean’s book: Bob Altemeyer’s – The Authoritarians
    He even has it all online for free for anyone to read and what do you know; he’s a Canadian. Do you sense a trend here?

  2. Yep. We Canadians know from bullies and authoritarians. We live next door to one, and still (nominally) under the thumb of another.
    I’m still trying to get my hands on a copy of Teodor Adorno’s The Authoritarian Personality, but even used it’s well-nigh impossible to find. I wonder why that is. It’s supposed to be a definitive classic in the field.

    I didn’t have time yesterday to read this so I marked it for later reading. I want to know. Can I be a leftist authoritarian bitch too? 🙂
    I loved the links to the Ayn Rand biographies. I spread them as far and wide as I could with the suggestion that anyone reading the review buy at least one of the books and send it to their wingnut friends. Especially the ones that think Atlas Shrugged is like the next think to the Bible.
    The woman was not only a sociopath, she was a certified, genuine psychopath. She was rich so they generally call that eccentric. Not her! She was 100% stark-raving, bat-shit crazy. And I love it.
    Of course I do have sort a sick sense of humor myself!

  4. Of course you can be one, Jim…mind you, this club has no building, no chairs, no open bar, and no membership cards. We’re too authoritarian to have them, you know. Our members are forced to go free-range!
    And yeah, she was bat-guano for sure. To think that some who call themselves “libertarians” (note quotes) read her shit like it’s some kind of bible is just soooo sad. They should take cautionary lessons from her life–she lived miserable and drug-addicted, and died friendless. Everyone who ever loved her got alienated by her ugly selfishness, and ultimately wound up leaving her. The only person still caring for her in the end was a paid nurse. Some “freedom” that is! And some friggin’ “genius”!
