No Honor Among Thieves . . . Or Progressives

So I’m reading this post and the comments over at Firedoglake (yes, I read liberal and progressive blogs when I get a chance or when a title catches my eye), and I’m torn, as usual, between feeling a bit sorry for them all (citizen progressives have feelings, too. You know, sort of, but I’m getting to that) and feeling completely amazed at how selfish, morally bankrupt, and seedy they are.  The post is all about how BO mocked, yes mocked!, progressives who supported and still want a public option.  The post talks about how his contempt is so awful, so degrading, so devoid of gratitude and loyalty.  And darn it, it’s just plain mean to mock and show contempt to . . . them.

The fact that BO’s sneering mockery and open contempt doesn’t make them want to don their BO cheerleader outfits and shake their pom poms for POTUS before breaking into a rousing rendition of the Mmmm Mmmm Mmm song doesn’t compute outside their tiny little world where only they matter and only what they want counts.  Being sneered at, belittled, and mocked has made them . . . angry!  (Personally, I expect violence from these clearly RAAAAACIST people at any moment)  Being scoffed at and publicly insulted by the president hasn’t made them tow the line, in fact, it’s had quite the opposite effect.  D’oh!  Don’t expect them to connect any dots, though, because it’s not the disdain, the unpresidential petulance, the clear evidence that BO isn’t fit for the job he has (hard to think of any job he is fit for, really, what’s he done? Ever?), and it’s not even the fact that the president of the United States of America and leader of the free world is attacking his own citizens–no no no, it’s not any of that.  That is all fine as wine . . . as long as it’s not directed at them. 

This is what always gets me about the BO followers who’ve been tossed under that famous fleet of buses or who’ve realized what they’ve inflicted on this nation: they don’t care that he’s a liar, an underhanded dirty trickster, an egomaniacal tyrant unless and until he lies to them, plays dirty political tricks on them, puts himself and his agenda before them (to hell with the country and the people, right?), lords over them from on high.  You know where else we see this sort of thing?  In dysfunctional high school kids (and adults).  But, gee, sure, I knew he stole stuff . . . from other people!  How was I supposed to know he’d steal from ME?  Golly, yeah, I knew she was a cheater, but I didn’t think she’d cheat on ME.  Yeah, I know he likes to hit girls, but I never imagined that he’d hit ME.  Me, me, me, that’s all the prog crowd cares about, and by “prog crowd,” I’m of course including their leader who doesn’t adequately bow to them in gratitude for their wonderousness (imagine the convoluted logic that goes into imagining that a raging narcissistic  ideologue will bow to other raging narcissistic ideologues).  They’ll embrace any frothing at the mouth, wild-eyed rabid dog and then be shocked (shocked!) when it turns and bites them.

Massive voter fraud?  Snarling and sneering at the American people?  Telling outright lies?  Buying votes for bad (monstrously bad) bills?  Purposefully deceiving the American people?  Strong-arming and bullying people (everyone from leaders of industry to politicians to Fox News to every day citizens)?  That’s all fine, even good–more more more! Put those radical ends first, how we get there doesn’t matter, let the bodies pile up . . . as long as it doesn’t touch ME.  Good grief, it’s hard to take such self-absorbed, unethical, useless people seriously, isn’t it?  Just how droolingly stupid do you have to be to back a sketchy, unethical Chicago thug for the highest office in the land (arguably, in the world) and not think (apparently it didn’t even cross their little pea brains) that he’ll turn on you, that you’re just as expendable, just as contemptible as everyone else?  Gee, I guess that whole “honor among thieves” thing is just so much twaddle.  Whodda thunk it?

  1. We seemed to have raised a generation or two of sociaopaths. Of course the sociopath-in-chief leads the pack…

    Profile of the Sociopath

    Glibness and Superficial Charm

    Manipulative and Conning
    They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.

    Grandiose Sense of Self
    Feels entitled to certain things as “their right.”

    Pathological Lying
    Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.

    Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
    A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

    Shallow Emotions
    When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.

    Incapacity for Love

    Need for Stimulation
    Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.

    Callousness/Lack of Empathy
    Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.

    Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
    Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.

    Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
    Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet “gets by” by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.

    Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.

    Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
    Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.

    Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
    Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.

    God help this country!

  2. Fuzzy,

    What do expect when the POTUS is a snollygoster!

    Please do not take any anger management classes until after the elections, we need you to keep the base fired up! Once again a magnificent rant!

  3. Whenever the rubes self-identify, it's always fun.

    Seriously, a lot of people–even leftists–thought that Barack was just gonna screw over (fill in whatever progressive hate figure or population group). It turns out, we're all boned.

  4. @HTBWS, that sounds an awful lot like BO, doesn't it? Ugh. He's really something.

    @Odie, heh, too right. After years of wishing that President Bush would have responded to his critics, I'm now deeply sincerely thankful that he didn't. Not that he would ever sound like such a whiny petulant freak (like BO), but it's so unpresidential. (I may kind of wish he'd sent his people out to speak up, but given how whiny it sounds and how laughable, I guess they did the right thing not responding.) All in all, those “poor little dears” are annoying as all get out, and I dearly wish they'd take a time out and suck on their thumbs in a corner somewhere. Quietly.

    @L, a snollygoster? That's a new one on me, what's it mean? Heh, anger management classes, naw, none of those in my future. It would kill the muse (who always quiets after a good rant, anyway). Venting is healthy, and a good Fuzzy-approved way to manage anger. 🙂

    @Kingshamus, but that's the point, what kind of person, how truly base and unethical and awful do you have to be, to cheerlead someone you believe to be an unethical, backstabbing, petty, bullying, unscrupulous slug? And how truly dumb as dirt do you have to be to think he won't do the exact same thing to you? Geez, ask Hillary about BO's sense of loyalty, ask any of the dems who challenged him in elections and got bumped off the ticket so he wouldn't have to actually compete. He's scum, always was and always will be, and anyone stupid and base enough to leap into bed with him deserves exactly what they get.

  5. Fuzzy,

    I have to admit I got the word “sollygoster” from Bill O's word of the day last night and had to look it up. Even (TL) didn't know what it was and she is much smarter than me.

    Webster's Encyclopedic Unabridged Dictionary defines it as follws: a clever, unscrupulous person. Fits BO to a tee don't ya think!

  6. Well, Fuzz, better you do it than me. I can't imagine sitting down and wasting my precious time reading a liberal (or 'progressive') article under any circumstances. I already know what they are about. Of course it's all about them. This is the same 'if it feels good, do it' gang that hates anything or anyone that passes judgement, or assigns 'right' and 'wrong' to behaviors. Especially theirs, when they engage in their amoral ways.

    Of course they put the Thug in Chief Barack Obama in charge. They would have elected President Beelzebub (D-Hell) as long as he ran his campaign with promises to keep abortion legal, and the progressive tax system in place.

  7. @L, oh that fits . . . to a T.

    @Fredd, well, of course, they would. You intolerant swine, freedom of religion, remember? (um, well, unless it's about some conservative kid curious about Wicca, then it's calls to burn the witch. Or unless it's Christians wanting to do anything, then it's encroaching on their make-believe constitutional right to be free from religion.) They're not only evil (no, I don't think it's just a case of “not evil, just wrong” in many many case), they're illogical and inconsistent and hypocritical. And rude and petty. These last, though, I'm rather enjoying now that their target is their own Dear Leader. It's funny, somehow, to watch them do to him what they did to President Bush (no shoes flying yet, but they'll get there). I think it's funny because BO's so surprised by it, again, how on earth can he be surprised that the nasty, rude, whiny crowd are being nasty, rude, and whiny toward and about him? What a moron. They all deserve each other. But we do not. And that's why they all need to be relegated back to their sewers where they belong.

  8. @Fredd, and as an aside, I don't read leftist blogs as much as I used to. They are predictable steaming piles of hate, bitterness, whining, illogical statements, and down right insanity. But every once in a while a title will catch my eye in Memorandum, and I'll go check it out. This one was particularly funny because they're all whinging on about how horrible it is to be mocked and ridiculed not because it's poor showing in the leader of the free world but that they did so much for him and he's soooo ungrateful to them. Omg, it's funny just to type that up again. Heeee!

  9. Fuzzy, you're like a rose bush who has stored up her energy all winter and is now gloriously displaying every beautiful part of herself with perfection. 🙂

    Keep it coming.

    You verbalized it perfectly. That liberals Admire that in obama which we find disgusting, the criminality, the censorship, the thievery, the narcissism, the ramming of telephone poles up our butts.. and that they never would believe he'd do it the THEM Too! After all; They supported this fascist piece of garbage. They should all be tax exempt! They should all have their Mortgages paid and an endless supply of Gas for their cars while us right wing terrorist non-union racists PAY out the wazoo !

    I knew it would happen, and it will continue to happen. Especially if HC doesn't get repealed, they'll find themselves in the same non-health care, non-service, hell hole, and I for one will remind them every 10 seconds if necessary, how THEY voted for it. All while laughing like a Hyena.

    I really enjoyed reading this and your last one, as is probably obvious 🙂

    Some parts of this nightmare are going to be fun. We need 6 to 8 years of voting out the RINO's and as many Dems as we can. If we can do that, we have a chance.

  10. Fuzzy, glad you are back, hope you are ok (didn't see any pictures up of men with tophats or carnations so i suppose you are). I love it when Obama sneers at his supporters, its the best thing ever 🙂 Too bad they'll still vote for him anyway – I mean how far left of Obama can you possibly go?


  11. You nailed it Fuzzy! The left has always amazed me with their self absorbed, hypocritical, valueless and petulant ways. Then, they have outrage when one of their own does to them what they do to everyone else?

    They made their bed, now they must sleep in it.
