Projectifying … projecticating … we call it maize …
Makes you wonder when it comes to the modern liberal individual, if one personality even knows what the other is saying.
Our recent visitor from American Liberal Times – the fellow now inviting us to comment on his blog after having just recently purged it of years (he said) of conservative comment – presently informs the world that the “Mission of this [American Liberal Times] blog” is:
“Trying to get it right for the sake of sanity in a very dark and dangerous world. Blogging is one of the last bastions of freedom of speech and freedom of the press left to us and I think it can be far more accurate and truthful than most corporate-owned main stream media.”
A “very dark and dangerous world” he says; one in which blogs can be far more truthful and accurate than the mainstream press. Well, give him some credit: he doesn’t dare claim that his own blog, filled as it is with what he describes as literal hearsay, is one of those accurate and truthful blogs. That would be more than comically “outrageous”. That would be ludicrous.
Continuing on then, we quickly scroll down the bilious entries of the American Liberal Times blog and encounter more, much more, on this theme of a very dark and dangerous world.
We find for example the following description of “Righties”, as ” … stinking mental garbage and unmitigated flamboyant exaggerations from the darkest pits of …” But wait. That’s not the quote we were looking for. That’s fulminating darkness alright; but it’s fulminating darkness that he obviously himself owns.
Was this the quote ? “… [the wealthy] privileged hungry savage lion wearing the royal robes of the rich right wing elitists still roams the countryside searching for the unfortunate poor whom it may emasculate, eviscerate and . . . devour!”.
No, that’s obviously dark and paranoid too, but not quite the quote we were looking for either.
The quote we are looking for is the one where he projects paranoid sentiments onto conservatives, rather than directly expressing them himself as a liberal.
Ok, ok, here it is, I’ve found it. Here’s where he looks in the mirror and starts pointing his finger at “rightie” so-called “paranoia”.
So, to repeat, da da da da da … the set up is that he thinks the world is very dark and dangerous, and da da da … roamed by elitists seeking to devour et cetera. And so now … yeah … and so now he has this friend you see, who knows conservatives, and (drumroll):
” … Righties [who] always seemed to be living in a state of constant fear and paranoia . . . fear about the government planning to “come and get them” or “coming to do them in” or “coming to steal their guns and take away their freedoms or put them into a FEMA camp or something. …
and then speaking for himself The American Liberal Times author says:
“I know a few like this guy is describing too and the ones I know about never seem to have a minutes peace in their lives either – – always living on the edge – – always fearing some calamity just around the corner but never quite yet “Here” for some reason known only to them.…“
You see? It’s all so clear. Liberals may be paranoid, crazy, and conspiratorial, and live in “a very dark and dangerous world”, but it’s only because conservatives have made them be, and live, that way. Or something.
