Ignorance and appeasement. Gutless, witless acceptance of drone hood and little else.
Well done, very well done indeed. You have accepted your programming wonderfully.
During the Bush administration, both right and left leaning people on this site, regularly came together to condemn the behaviour of Bush and Blair
alike, and why? Because we knew in our hearts and our minds that what his administration was doing was wrong, on many, many levels. From war, to
infrastructural policy, from economic policy to the first whispers of the possibility of a mass surveillance network, from failure to safeguard jobs,
to the creation of Guantanamo Bay political prison and a host of other violations of proper conduct, both right and left would come together to
condemn, from their various points of view, these actions and policies.
We came together to mock his attitude to the role he played, when he said "Now, watch this drive" we collectively, together, pronounced him an oaf, a
lummox, and not fit to buckle shoes, leave alone lead a nation. And yet, here we have Trump, potentially in collusion with Russia, which in and of
itself is only the pinnacle of the total clusterbang that his Presidency has ALREADY been in just the last 177 days, and yet there are those who
support him? If Bush had done this, there would be uproar. If there had been the slightest suggestion, during his Presidency and as widely published
as this has been, that Obama was colluding with an enemy state, then everyone here would have been up in arms, and rightly so, from ALL quarters.
My question is simple:
What the hell happened to you people?
I am pretty sure I remember a time when the right leaning members of this website, were not simple sycophants, lead by the nose and the testes toward
whichever person was the most obnoxious in their dealings, the least noble in the outworking of their ideals, toward whomever would make the most vile
hate mongers and liars feel better about themselves by comparison. I am pretty sure I remember when the right at least had elements within it, who
would not accept a man like Trump, because those elements insisted on honesty, a dedication to freedom, to liberty and justice, not contempt for the
people, for the country, and for honour. I am pretty sure I remember a time when at least some of the right leaners around here considered the
standing of their nation and its place in the world as something to be maintained in good order, not at any cost, but only with the most righteous
intent AND righteous execution.
So where are all of those individuals now? What happened to them, I ask, because it seems to me that any bunch of crazies who would watch a tycoon
piss on the constitution of your country, and collude with an often hostile state behind the back of the citizenry, without some significant concern,
and probably far more than that, are not anything like the reasonable, fair, just and noble people I remember from a decade ago.
Some people around here have lost the path entirely. In their eagerness for things to change, they have given themselves over to someone who will not
only do all the things that they hated seeing previous leaders do, but do them more blatantly, more callously, with not even the merest hint of
decency, or any apparent awareness of how disgusting their behaviour is. Those appeasing this behaviour should be bloody well ashamed of themselves.
