Russell King has penned a brilliant rant, and it's perfectly timed.
I was just about to embark on a treasure hunt to find the best examples of this insane journey these freaks have taken us on. As I've been tweeting lately, Batshit Crazy is The New Normal. I doubt my Rants and Primers inspired it, but I'm gonna pretend it did. I'd like to see dozens more like it, all which will be included in my primers.
Please tweet this to everyone you've known since elementary school. It's important.
Now the advice. You're going to have to come up with a platform that isn't built on a foundation of cowardice: fear of people with colors, religions, cultures and sex lives that differ from your own; fear of reform in banking, health care, energy; fantasy fears of America being transformed into an Islamic nation, into social/commun/fasc-ism, into a disarmed populace put in internment camps; and more. But you have work to do even before you take on that task.
Read the Open Letter (tpmcafe)
I have to wonder how the Founders would have regarded power like Roger Ailes now has.
He has a security detail (not just a body guard). Now, why would a simple journalist, just telling the truth, need a small army to protect him. Got RPG?
Face it, folks. The first amendment was not meant to protect organized sedition of our nation. We need some serious rethink. Especially now that the Robert's court is doing its best to give these gangsters even more power than they've ever had.
Rupert Murdoch: the king of media paradoxes
Of course, Murdoch, through Ailes, a former Nixon aide, has effectively polarized the political dialogue in this country, and Ailes knows the firestorms he systematically sets off. He has become so paranoid about his personal safety that his daily trek to work from Westchester County is fortified by a security force sizable enough for an Arab potentate (Murdoch, by contrast, often walks to work by himself).
