one man's conspiracy is another man's business plan
Tuesday, January 06, 2004 | Selling the Status Quo
As many idealistic young "progressives" of all ages are beginning to notice, the "real" campaign for the Democratic nomination is not about progress, or change, or fresh new breezes blowing in the strains of a Scorpions song.
It's about repackaging the status quo to make it sound better to those voters who have been frowning at it a little bit, while reassuring the overwhelming majority of voters who enthusiastically support it that it will remiain essentially unchanged.
We have already seen the battles begin:
Which candidate supports the government of Israel MORE unconditionally than the others?
Which candidate supports bush's war on terra MORE than his opponents do?
Which candidate will do the best job of running the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan?
Which Democratic hopeful can best ensure that the rich get the tax breaks and the non-rich get their backs broken?
Who will do the best job of protecting traditional Anglo-Saxon Protestant values?
Who has the best plan for stamping out anti-American sentiment around the world and rooting out terrorist sleeper cells right here in the "Homeland?"
Almost as important: who can make all these things sound good enough to make you believe they're just what the country ordered? posted at
Actions like Sep 11 do not happen in a vaccuum.
Long before those hijackers ever stepped foot on the planes the damage
had been done. They were brainwashed with the same type of garbage
propaganda that is spewed from Fatwa's weblog.
Middle Eastern countries are so much more barbaric today and preAmercia than America can ever hope to be...America has only been around 230 years...who did you blame for everything before that Ductape? I am calling a Fatwa on your bullshit!
IMO - terrorist plain and simple. He is an Al queda operative who
should be put in a cage on gitmo Skinner
My favorite..."In Defense of Holocaust Deniers"
I always thought that "The Enemy Within" was just a metaphore for liberalism, that is, until I encountered Ductape Fatwa. He should be in an orange jumpsuit for sure.
peopleforchange.netductape is either a commie, al queda, or a deep cover mole
Tells you something about this asshole doesn't it. He's really serious.
I believe that DF is nothing but a Republican plant...
Ductape is a commie, a terrorist, and he drinks blood too. He drinks
Capitalist blood. He eats unborn babies too
Give me your address and I'll send you $20 and a thank-you note for taking your hatred elsewhere.
A terrorist with a sense of humor!
He ain't nuthin' but shit
inadequate, halfway house bullshit
You are a dumbass. Fuck you and your condescension about us "benighted sheeple." hamletta
Untruthful, damaging bullshit
no better than the neocons and no different than Timothy McVeigh
dailykos.coma turd in the punchbowl...if DF were Joe Hill he probably would have killed himself rather than get put to death.
A compost pile of fecundity
dailykos.comdespicable and literally mentally ill
