Red State Rubes

Living in one of the largest backwater states in the nation, I am constantly subjected to some of the most alarming and disingenuous propaganda imaginable. This is a place where people urinate on the floors of local taverns, puke on fellow patrons, and discard mountains of trash for others to clean up after a holiday event. Welcome to Cobb County, Georgia. But it's the same in other parts of the South. Jacksonville, FL, 4th of July - hordes of Westsiders flock to the beaches to shoot fireworks over the ocean. The problem? The next morning, you can hardly see a patch of sand for the garbage, beer bottles, and torn clothing left behind by this onslaught of drunken rabble. And this, as well as anything, represents the mindset of your modern day rabid NeoCon - consume what you can, destroy what you will, and leave the mess for others to clean up.

These mental rejects are the fuel that drives the NeoCon machine of corruption, greed, and cronyism - and at the same time are its most obvious victims. They act as cheerleaders for those who are bent on destroying what they cherish most - freedom, property rights, and national security. I would include education in this list, but these types eschew lernin more than they do a dagnabed librul.

Yet for the life of me, I cannot figure out what appeal the NeoCons hold for these people. Are they simply stupid and gullible? Do they subconsciously feel they deserve punishment for their apparent intellectual inferiority? Or is the entire basis of their support for a party of miscreants based on bigotry and overwhelmingly base behavior? I'm betting on the latter - the unspoken rage of teaming hordes which is based entirely on fear of the unfamiliar and absolute bigotry. Why bother to educate or enlighten when hatred serves their purpose - and it's so darned easy. And if there is something a rube loves, it's the easy way out of a problem - no matter that it may not actually work. But they continue to line up like lemmings, supporting hidden agendas which ship their jobs overseas, cheats them from their property and children's futures, and destroys their beloved "country life" by selling out to avaricious carpetbagger developers. And all the while, the Barons continue to laugh at the rubes who allow, and even support, the onslaught. Cronies who run up unimaginable debt, bankrupting the county, while padding their already deep pockets with generations of tax liability. And who do you think will be paying for all of this? The Rubes - who else.

Imagine my surprise when attempting to leave a comment refuting a specious claim made at - they don't allow comments to be made, except by "screened" individuals. What kind of open discussion is this? A circle jerk of tiny little redneck winger minds who bask in each other's ignorance. Dissent is not allowed and the comments are screened - sounds just like the current administration to me. An administration so full of holes they couldn't capture a raindrop during a tsunami. An administration that fears Truth and plays lip service to the fears and foibles of those who don't bother to reason beyond the most superficial of notions.

I've visited hundreds of blogs over the past several years, but the only sites I've seen that do not allow unfettered, open discussion are the NeoCon/RedState sites. In fact, many "leftist" blogs, such as Crooks and Liars, actually welcome alternative viewpoints. This alone should speak volumes on how tedious their grasp of reality has become - they cannot defend their warped agenda against one lone dissenting voice. And when they do, it is generally couched in a tirade of foul language and ad hominem attacks. The filthy Newt Gingrich's of this country have spread their foul, hateful disease far and wide, and it has affected one third of this country. Let us hope that 2007 holds a new cure for this national blight known as the NeoCon GOP.

Thanks! My grandfather owned a farm in Dalton many years ago - used to wander the woods and play with the animals as a kid.

As for checking out NeoCon blogs, I agree - Know thine enemy. But I still see the occasional voice urging the "surge" as necessary for victory. Victory? For what! Control of Oil, and MIC buildups, that's what.
