Response to Bjorn Against (Original post)

Mon May 21, 2012, 12:31 PM

70. I am surprised that anyone is surprised

Your post is very heartfelt and well-written, but I am unsure of the point, to be perfectly honest. What do you propose be done, that might actually have an effect? This might have been held off when Bush The Stupider implemented Free Speech Zones, but wasn't. It might have been slowed by some very assertive action when it was discovered that Tim McVeigh was a Limbecile, but wasn't. Some serious pushback after the corrupt court ruled on Bush v. Gore might have helped, but nothing happened. When Delay's gangsters violently stopped the recount, a dose of SYG would have altered the course of history, but we of course responded with a lot of huffing and puffing and our usual, "Well, they've overplayed they're hand this time - people will catch on now". Election theft in 2000, 2002, 2004 went without response.

The fascists have won, Bjorn, and a large part of the problem is that we are content to post polemics that garner a lot of rec's.
