Texans on NPR complaining about "socialist" speech.

It was something hearing a Texan saying that socialism prevents people from knowing the "joys" of captialsim. You remember the texans that gave us ENRON. When the space shuttle crashed, bush and his syndicate, the congress, set up a fund for people on the ground who were effected by the crash. So everyone and their brother in Texas cashed in. Oh joy.

Then during the bush depression, Americans lost one trillion dollars thanks to the "joys" of capitalsim. Yet these dirty bastard Texans have the nerve to stick their noses in the air as if they played no part in our current debacle, and proclain that the current efforts of President Obama to help the working people of America deal with the bush junta is socialism.

During the same NPR broadcast, they interviewed a victim of Mao's cultural revolution. The middle class was wrongfully sent to the farms and given meals that were partly dung. This would show them how worthless they were. Although the cultural revolution was unjust and cruel, sometimes I think that Texans really need to be humbled because of all the evil they created and their dirtly rhetoric that has followed.

2. NPR, in San Diego, is conservative in its broadcast policy...

interviewing far more conservatives than anyone else about political policy.

It isn't Limpbaugh or Savage, but it is not a bastion of liberalism as the otherside has suggested. This morning they asked Coburn's opinion on Obama's inaugeration speech, and he has appeared on NPR at least three times this past week that I've heard in my morning travels. (0715 - 0800 is the only time I listen.)

3. Believe I heard part of it..

mindless listening this morning, but they interviewed a family in Texas. They spoke to a 79 year old man who was concerned as Obama never showed his birth certificate or why no one has ever spoken to his teachers.

This WTF moment brought to you by the right wing spin machine..

I thought we were beyond this, apparently not.

4. Hmm, I'm sure folks from other states were complaining about Obama's "socialist " speech as well

Why just the focus on a Texan who called? And why broad brush and refer to us as "dirty bastard Texans"?

By the way, "everyone and their brother in Texas cashed in" on the space shuttle crash? Waiting for my check.

5. If Texas is so great, why do they keep electing John Cornyn and Rick Perry?

And that horrid Ted Cruz person they just elected?

Born in Texas, love Texas, but really tiring of Texans voting for these assholes.

Yes there are bastions of liberalism, but Karl Rove fucked over the state and it has not come back yet.

Some standards they use, eh?

If you read my post again, I am condemning the fact that the person was broad brushing.

7. Of course. And we should privatize Capitol & Mall real estate --

 

-- anybody who speaks from that government-owned Capitol portico is an outright socialist. Disgraceful.

8. Mao's prison farms, teens sent to private prisons for playing hooky...

Same shit, different assholes. Ditto for Mao putting dung in food, and our corporate food suppliers filling our food with shit like high fructose corn syrup, melamine, salmonella, E. coli, and all sorts of chemicals most people can't eve pronounce. Funny how these brain-dead imbeciles can't see how they're not different than a bastard like Mao.

10. Wasn't it the joyful capitalists in Texas who caused California's crash

because of an engineered energy crisis a few years ago, leading to Davis' being recalled and Arnold's winning the governorship?

Yep, we socialists are not having near the fun we should be having.

11. That's a bit of a hyperbole about Texans

Reagan was from California and he was just as bad as Bush
Cheney was from Wyoming
Goldman Sachs, AIG etc are from Wall Street
Timothy McVeigh was from Michigan

I'm not being defensive. I think these types are right wing nut jobs and Texas is full of them.

But Bush would never have been elected if only Texans had voted for him.

12. Good post.

Also, Jim Hightower, Ann Richards, Lyndon Johnson, and Ralph Yarborough were from Texas.

I suppose they were "dirty bastard Texans" too.

13. Are we back to region-bashing again?

Right-wingers do that. They hate the Bay Area, the West Coast, the East Coast, Chicago, Detroit, Boston, New York, DC....

This is exactly how you DON'T win elections-by resorting to broad brushes and stereotypes.

Next time, think a little more before posting.

15. "Back to bashing"? ;)

No, there are some on DU that never let up. And they don't seem to understand the meaning of the word "united".

Texas is changing. We've got many of the same problems in other states, such as gerrymandered districts. Virginia, an electorally "blue" state, is now going through some similar gerrymandering by their state senate. Yet, I don't see their region being bashed because of that.

Just today, I read two posts by DUers that Texas will never change. I'd say it's more likely that they will never change their opinions of us, but you can't tell them that

19. Yes, they are bigots

Just like the righties who say California and Massachusetts aren't "real America." They will go on hating us, no matter what.
