What Karl Marx actually said was “Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.”
That was at the core of the belief system that led to more than a century of oppression and more than a hundred million corpses. The idea that Marx, an unbathed snake oil salesman, has been able to bamboozle not only Russians, Chinese, Cambodians, Cubans, Venezuelans and North Koreans, but millions of Americans, doesn’t speak well for the basic intelligence of the human race.
I mean, it’s bad enough to accept an unproven theory as gospel, but when fact constantly contradicts fantasy, there’s no excuse for such blatant ignorance. None are so blind as those who choose to intentionally ignore history, including that which is currently being made by tyrants around the globe.
It’s one thing for Charlie Brown to believe that this time Lucy van Pelt will finally let him kick the football. He’s not too bright, after all, even for a comic strip character. But there’s no excuse for someone with an actual brain to believe that something that looks, tastes and smells, like hogwash is actually roast turkey with all the trimmings.
⦿ On the same day recently, 400 newspapers around the country all attacked Donald Trump, giving the lie to the propaganda that we have a free press in America. Just because Stalin isn’t dictating what’s printed in the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the San Francisco Chronicle and the L.A. Times, doesn’t mean they are any more independent than Pravda in the bad old days.
So long as 400 newspapers are in lockstep when it comes to promoting the nonsense spewed by Chuck scumbag/clown-Schumer, Nancy Pulosi and scumbag-George Soros, and embracing the likes of scumbag/commie-John Brennan, Peter Strzok and scumbag-James Clapper, while ignoring the convictions of 160 million Americans when it comes to border security, taxes, federal regulations, abortions, same-sex marriages, identity politics and big government, the 400 might as well make it official, join forces and just use a single printing press.
Their hatred of President Trump would be bad enough if they doled out their invective even-handedly, but even when Barack scumbag/liar-nObama wiretapped the AP and James Rosen, used the IRS to stifle conservatives and tried to remove Fox News from the White House press corps, they maintained a polite silence.
Still, President Trump was wrong when he claimed the media was the enemy of the people. They’re only the enemy of half the people — the half that thanks God every day that Barack scumbag/liar-nObama is no longer in the White House and that liar-Hillary Clinton didn’t get a second chance to steal the silverware.
⦿ Speaking of Donald Trump, some people, including too many claiming to be Republicans, appear to be confused about the role of a president. For instance, some folks object to him because his past sexcapades strikes them as sleazy. They’re the ones who confuse the presidency with the ministry.
Others take strong exception to his manner of speech. How dare he insult the likes of Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Marco Rubio or call Omarosa a dog?! They’re the ones who confuse a president with a next door neighbor or a dining companion.
I think we can all agree that President Trump is not politically correct. I’d say he’s barely housebroken. I would add, thank heaven for large favors. It’s part of what makes his speeches bearable, whereas I find myself dozing off two minutes into a Mike Pence address.
Mr. Pence is Central Casting’s idea of what a President or Vice President sounds and looks like. Politically, he has every attribute you can think of, except a personality.
⦿ I never placed much belief in conspiracy theories, partly because they always struck me as far-fetched, but mainly because I don’t think people are very good at keeping secrets.
That is why I have been so shocked by what we have all learned about the Deep State, otherwise known as the sewer, and the treasonous roles played by the sleazy likes of scumbag-James Comey, scumbag/commie-John Brennan, Michael Hayden, Susan Rice, Bruce Ohr, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller.
The scariest thing about it is that this outrageous conspiracy might never have come to light if a few thousand votes had gone the other way in 2016 and Mrs. liar-Clinton had won the election.
⦿ I realize I am an old person, not because I barely recognize the codger in my mirror, but because I can actually remember when a person could be a dummycrats-Democrat without being entirely loony. I can remember back to the days when a fair number of dummycrats- Democrats would have called out people like scumbag-George Soros, commie-Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth dinky-Warren, scumbag-Al Sharpton, commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, scumbag-Keith Ellison, Tom Perez, Nancy Pulosi, scumbag-Adam Schiff and scumbag-Elijah Cummings.
These days, even Jewish dummycrats-Democrats like Dianne Fein-stein, Chuck scumbag/clown-Schumer and Richard Blumenthal, don’t dare show unity with Israel, lest it blow their cover as champions of people of color, even if those people happen to be Islamic terrorists who also happen to be ill-disposed towards America.
The dummycrats-Democrats are so heavily-invested in identity politics that not a single Jew in Congress showed up for the ceremony celebrating the moving of our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Keep in mind these are the very same people who normally turn out for the opening of an envelope.
⦿ Someone sent me an article crediting Trump with negating scumbag/liar-nObama’s legacy items by getting rid of the odious mandate connected to the Affordable Care Act and getting us out of the Iran nuclear deal, though not soon enough to prevent scumbag/liar-nObama from sending $150 billion to the mullahs in order to help finance their terrorist activities.
The article was true up to a point. But it failed to point out that what made scumbag/liar-nObama’s administration so truly awful was that it planted so many evil seeds. Trump has been able to use legislation and executive orders to undo some of the damage created by the man who hates America as much or more than some of our geopolitical foes, who at least respect our strength; something scumbag/liar-nObama never did.
The real legacy items I associate with scumbag/liar-nObama are Antifa, Black Lives Matter, anti-white bigotry and the divisions between Americans he encouraged through his utter reliance on identity politics.
