For years in the Valley, I've been saying the Modern Democrats are like INGSOC. An Outer Party to keep up the lies (i.e. the Zombie Journalists like Charles Pierce and Garance Franke-Ruta) and an Inner Party to maintain Power. (The Ancien Regime and Obama Administration post will be published soon)
|That include President Obama and Democrats|
|Only if you are a Tea Partier|
Let us meet Big Brother (on paper):
"...the hostile figure melted into the face of Big Brother, black-haired, black-moustachio’d, full of power and mysterious calm, and so vast that it almost filled up the screen. Nobody heard what Big Brother was saying. It was merely a few words of encouragement, the sort of words that are uttered in the din of battle, not distinguishable individually but restoring confidence by the fact of being spoken..."
-- Orwell, 1984, Chapter One
Let us meet Big Brother (IRL):
(I know Karen Kenney from the SFVRC -- watch this video!)
What surprised me (and made me laugh) was that, in cases of the First Amendment and the General Public, the Left and many Journalists are against the little guy.
What's changed since 1974 Steve M? Maha? Digby?
Or do the Democrat's need of a 2 Minute hate against Republicans more important then standing up to your own Elected officials (D) and say "This is wrong!"
Victor Small of Wappingers Falls, NY needs his Two Minute Hate to survive.
If you can't primary a Democratic Party Elected official over corruption, why am I expecting better from these people? 1972 was too long ago.
For now, like clockwork, all the Zombie Journalists are talking of Rep. Issa's 20 year old past instead of the (current) misuse of Government power.
As long as modern Democrats and their partisans love Big Brother (they show no signs of doing anything about the IRS, other then to mock and belittle those who worked within the system to apply for 501c4 status -- just like Media Matters for America or Organizing for America), we who are active citizens have to worry about our own Government.
It seems Steve M, Maha, Digby, Victor Small and Charles Pierce forgot a piece of poetry:
First the came for the Tea partiers; But I was Liberal;
Then they came for the Republicans, And I was a Democrat....
My question: Why do Democrat's love Big Brother and his Two Minute Hates of their fellow citizens?
