Mindless, Progressive Automatons Have Filled America With Righteous Indignation

Liberal Rednecks: A Salute
By Kelly OConnell Sunday, May 12, 2013

The term Liberal Redneck will strike progressives as an absurd contradiction. Yet, Conservatives will have an immediate, wearying familiarity with the angry, judgmental, uninformed and doctrinaire viewpoint of this group. In fact, the Liberal Redneck is every bit as small-minded, bigoted, dismissive, self-righteous, judgmental, uneducated and intolerant as the worst fundamentalist.

The problem in America today is that there is never a level playing field offered for the discussion of ideas. Therefore, most important topics are only mentioned in a predetermined format. In other words, one can mention, for example—gay marriage, but only with the proviso that the topic for debate and conclusion—is closed. But the Liberal Redneck is a special kind of smug, progressive partisan, who—while refusing to admit any bias, is more angry, close-minded, accusatory and bombastic than an ayatollah at a radical feminist convention. You undoubtedly know the type.

I. What is a Liberal Redneck?

The definition of Liberal Redneck is obvious. A large class of persons exists across America who see themselves as open-minded, enlightened, non-judgmental, unbiased, educated, non-superstitious and elite. Of course, this is the group of persons who claim the mantle of “modern liberal.” In fact, this group is anything but fair-minded and tolerant. Dictionary.com offers the following definition:

redneck

1. an uneducated white farm laborer, especially from the South.

2. a bigot or reactionary, especially from the rural working class.

A Liberal Redneck, like any other bigot, assumes beliefs without bothering to investigate whether any credible evidence exists to disprove them. They assert such a lofty intellectual position that they claim no reasonable person could disagree with their ideas. Such persons only up the ante by increasing their vehemence when positing their beliefs viz a-viz religion. Consider Harvard dropout thespian Matt Damon’s pathetic, ad-hominem laced critique of Sarah Palin:(video)

“It’s like a really bad Disney movie,“The Hockey Mom.’ Oh, I’m just a hockey mom from Alaska, and she’s the president,” the actor said.“She’s facing down Vladimir Putin and using the folksy stuff she learned at the hockey rink. It’s absurd.

“I don’t understand why more people aren’t talking about how absurd it is. It’s a really terrifying possibility. The fact that we have gotten that close to this being a reality is crazy.”

Damon expressed concern about Mrs Palin’s political experience -“mayor of a really small town and governor of Alaska for less than two years”, saying he did not understand why she had been chosen.

“I think the pick was made for political purposes. But in terms of governance, it’s a disaster.”

He added that he wanted to know more about Mrs Palin’s views on evolution versus creationism “because she’s going to have the nuclear codes” and whether, according to some reports,“she banned books or tried to ban books. We can’t have that.”

II. Liberal Redneck Information Sources

The pièce de résistance of Liberal Redneck information is the New York Times. But the most typical source of leftist beliefs are progressive news organizations, such as MSNBC and others. And some have taken note that the progressive mainstream media has relentlessly slanted news in favor of Liberal Redneck bias, such as in the recent gun control debate:

Even by the standards of today’s partisan media environment, the response has been noteworthy. TV hosts, editorial boards, and even some reporters have aggressively criticized and shamed the 46 Senators who opposed the plan, while some have even taken to actively soliciting the public to contact them directly.

The decision by some members of the media to come down so firmly on one side of a policy debate has only served to reinforce conservatives’ longstanding suspicions that the mainstream media has a deep-seated liberal bias.

Such anti-gun advocacy is notable when many studies show gun control laws simply do not work to stem violence, as seen today in Chicago (Gun Control is Why Chicago Murder Rates Are Skyrocketing). Scholar Thomas Sowell has written extensively on this failure:“The Fact-Free Gun-Control Crusade—Stricter gun-control laws don’t reduce murder rates, but who’s counting?”

Pulitzer-Prize winning American playwright David Mamet staged his political coming-out party in the Village Voice in an article titled, David Mamet: Why I Am No Longer a ‘Brain-Dead Liberal’. Mamet rejects his former cynical attitude, saying:“This is, to me, the synthesis of this worldview with which I now found myself disenchanted: that everything is always wrong.”

Mamet then wrote a book titled, The Secret Knowledge, On the Dismantling of American Culture (video). Here he delivers a gem:“Liberalism is a religion. Its tenets cannot be proved, its capacity for waste and destruction demonstrated.” Mamet claims that Liberal Rednecks don’t understand their opposition because they never take the time to absorb any information they don’t already believe. An article about Mamet from the Wall Street Journal said this:

Before he moved to California, Mr. Mamet had never met a self-described conservative or read one’s writings. He’d never heard of Messrs. Sowell or Steele.“No one on the left has,” he tells me.“I realized I lived in this bubble.”

When it popped, it was rough.“I did what I thought was, if not a legitimate, then at least a usual, thing‚ I took it out on those around me,” Mr. Mamet says wryly. It took “a long, long, long time and a lot of difficult thinking first to analyze, then change, some of my ideas.”

Interestingly, after a number of botched stories, the mainstream media is beginning to count the losses. CBS correspondent Scott Pelley recently stated: We’re Getting Big Stories Wrong, Over & Over Again’

Our house is on fire. These have been a bad few months for journalism,” he added.“We’re getting the big stories wrong, over and over again.

Perhaps if the mainstream media were not suffering from a terminal case of confirmation bias, these Liberal Rednecks would not be drowning in error?(Confirmation bias is a phenomenon wherein decision makers have been shown to actively seek out and assign more weight to evidence that confirms their hypothesis, and ignore or underweigh evidence that could disconfirm their hypothesis.)

III. Liberal Redneck Science

A classic example of Liberal Redneck Science is Global Warming. This “science” is the classic example of anecdotal mythology, placed into pseudo-scientific explanations, with no more real explanatory power than phrenology (explaining personality and character via skull shape). Despite the perpetual faked research regularly propping up Anthropomorphic Global Warming (AGW), Liberal Rednecks never consider this could be evidence of a falsified movement.(list of AGW hoaxed stories)

The UK Daily Mail published an article March 16, 2013 titled: The Great Green Con no. 1: The hard proof that finally shows global warming forecasts that are costing you billions were WRONG all along:

...irrefutable evidence that official predictions of global climate warming have been catastrophically flawed. This blows apart the ‘scientific basis’ for Britain reshaping its entire economy and spending billions in taxes and subsidies in order to cut emissions of greenhouse gases. These moves have already added ¬£100 a year to household energy bills. Academics are revising their views after acknowledging the miscalculation.

This information comes after a recent study found there has been no discernible increase in temperature for the last two decades: Twenty-year hiatus in rising temperatures has climate scientists puzzled. Yet this news has not stopped Liberal Rednecks from attacking “climate-deniers.” Eugene Robinson wrote this article in January, 2013: Is it hot enough for you?, stating:

The climate change denialists—especially those who manipulate the data in transparently bogus ways to claim that warming has halted or even reversed course—have been silent, as one might expect. Sensible people accept the fact of warming, but many doubt that our dysfunctional political system can respond in any meaningful way.

In fact, some research shows the earth is cooling (Sorry Global Warming Alarmists, The Earth Is Cooling), which makes this year’s coldest Spring ever (After coldest Easter ever, spring is set to be chillier than winter) even more suprising.

Or consider this extraordinary religious conclusion, when atheist physicist Stephen Hawking curiously explained the Big Bang needed no Big Banger,“...caricaturing the religious position with the myth of an African tribe whose god vomited the Sun, Moon and stars.” He then added:“‘What was God doing before He made the world? Was He preparing Hell for people who asked such questions?”

Unsurprisingly, after visiting Iran he now has decided to boycott Israel for Palestine.

The issue here is not whether a person can take a position upon a controversial topic, and then claim their belief is supported by science. The real issue is whether these same people are willing to look at the data which seems to disagree with their views, or if they would ever change their minds on the subject. If not, they might be a Liberal Redneck!

IV. Liberal Redneck Reaction to Unbelievers

Liberal Rednecks have absolutely no tolerance for those who disagree with their opinions. This is because Liberal Rednecks think their own beliefs define reality. Here is world-class Liberal Redneck Bill Maher commenting upon the Tea Party:

Now that they’ve finished reading the Constitution out loud, the tea baggers must call out that group of elitist liberals whose values are so antithetical to theirs. I’m talking of course about the founding fathers. I think it’s pretty clear that the founding fathers would have hated your guts and what’s more, you would have hated them. They were everything you despise. They studied science, read Plato, hung out in Paris, and thought the Bible was mostly BS.

In an even more bizarre tirade, the world’s richest capitalist, Bill Gates, lays waste to the goose that delivered his ($67 billion) golden eggs, saying:

Capitalism means that there is much more research into male baldness than there is into diseases such as malaria, which mostly affect poor people. Our priorities are tilted by marketplace imperatives. The malaria vaccine in humanist terms is the biggest need. But it gets virtually no funding…it’s a flaw in the pure capitalistic approach.

What makes Gates’ comments even more interesting is that, according to Tracy Kidder in Soul of a New Machine, Gates made his company the world’s largest by predatory business practices. And who could forget Obama’s comments about Conservatives?

And it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

V. Liberal Redneck Komedy—Janeane Garofalo

Actress, comedienne, and Liberal Redneck Janeane Garofalo recently discovered she needed a divorce, since her drunken, gag wedding in Las Vegas 20 years ago was determined to be a real wedding. This fits in with her obsession with explaining Conservative views by claiming they emanate from the limbic “lizard” brain center. She also insulted Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas as a black man too stupid to know he’s being prostituted by his white masters.

Explain that one to me now, you have an African American gentlemen married to a white woman who is in cahoots with a group that has a lot of racists in it. Is that Stockholm Syndrome on his part or what’s going on?

Doubling down on her obsession with Black Conservatives, Garofalo claimed Herman Cain was a paid stooge:

Herman Cain is in this presidential race because he deflects the racism that is inherent in the Republican party, the conservative movement, the Tea Party certainly. In the last 30 years the Republican party has been moving more and more to the right, but also race-baiting more. Gay-baiting more. Religion-baiting more. But, Herman Cain, I feel like, is being paid by somebody to be involved and to run for president so that you go like ‘I love that, that can’t be racist. He’s a black guy, a black guy asking for Obama being impeached.’ Or ‘it’s a black guy whose anti-Muslim. It’s a black guy who is a Tea Party guy.’

Garofalo then comments upon “pathological” limbic brain dysfunction of Conservatives:

And you know, you can tell these type of right wingers anything and they’ll believe it, except the truth. You tell them the truth and they become—it’s like showing Frankenstein’s monster fire. They become confused, and angry and highly volatile. That guy, causing them feelings they don’t know, because their limbic brain, we’ve discussed this before, the limbic brain inside a right-winger or Republican or conservative or your average white power activist, the limbic brain is much larger in their head space than in a reasonable person, and it’s pushing against the frontal lobe. So their synapses are misfiring.

Conclusion

Liberal Rednecks are a growing segment of a society run by mindless elites, who—in lacking any substantive education or training in logic or debate, feel as if they were born under politically correct star, effortlessly purifying all their beliefs. The question is—Can we survive this holier-than-Mao, brain-addled class? God save us from the deranged Janeane Garofalos of this world, and their limbic brained analysis.

CBS Reporter Challenged Bosses, White House to Air Benghazi Stories
Posted on May 11, 2013 by Tad Cronn

I have a new favorite journalist, Sharyl Attkisson of CBS.
It’s been years since you could find any respectable journalists who do their jobs, most of the media talking heads and reporters having gone over to the White House stable.
Working in that culture is what makes Attkisson’s accomplishment all the more important and impressive.
While us conservative blogger types have gone after the Obama Administration whenever it does something underhanded, which is pretty much every day, we’re just a dime a dozen.
Attkisson is in that rarified circle of TV journalists, and yet she has risked her reputation and probably her career to report the Benghazi coverup, stories that now have finally begun to break through the wall of denial and are being taken up by ABC, BBC and even CNN.

When I came back from Vietnam I enrolled in night school and bought a Collins Dictionary which is the Brit's English and I used their spelling and my college instructor informed me that I had to use Webster's.
I was at RAF Upper Heyford, where the USAF had their F-111Fs based at in the mid-1980s for about two weeks (I can not tell you why I was there) and they had a Pup outside the gate which had a sign over the bar which said "English spoken here, American understood".

05/12/13 Associate Press
WASHINGTON -- Republicans said Sunday that the Internal Revenue Service's heightened scrutiny of conservative political groups was "chilling" and further eroded public trust in government.
Lawmakers said President Barack Obama personally should apologize for targeting tea party organizations and they challenged the tax agency's blaming of low-level workers.
"I just don't buy that this was a couple of rogue IRS employees," said Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine. "After all, groups with `progressive' in their names were not targeted similarly."

I know, you hear Volvo and you think it is built outside of America but Volvo owns Mack trucks so they will be built in America most of parts made in the U.S. and Canada. Besides, many of our trucks in Afghanistan and Iraq are worn out and we will probably give those to those governments and or military do need to replace those worn out trucks.
Volvo Truck Wins $177.5 Million Pentagon Contract
By Rich Smith | May 10, 2013 |
The Department of Defense awarded Sweden's Volvo AB (NASDAQOTH: VOLVY )-- or more specifically, Volvo's Mack Trucks subsidiary -- a $177.5 million contract Friday for the purchase of tractor trailers.
The contract, designated "fixed-price with economic-price-adjustment/inde finite-delivery," is what is commonly known as an "IDIQ" contract. This means that while the price paid per item purchased may be fixed, there is no obligation incumbent upon the Pentagon to buy any particular number of trucks -- although the size of the contract certainly suggests their intention to buy a lot of them.
With your average Mack truck ranging in price from just under $100,000 to as high as $200,000, this contract could easily encompass the sale and purchase of 1,000 or more trucks and trailers from Mack's several product lines, with sales stretching from now through April 9, 2017. Purchases will be made for the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and federal civilian agencies.

It can also make us learn how to do things AND how not to do things as shown in other countries. We pretty much all know how it's going in North Korea. Not exactly heaven on earth. But, I'd still love to see for myself and if possible, though it may not be allowed, speak to the people like I did before the communist wall went down or in today's Cuba. Very interesting.

I'm sure Justice ha ha Dale is not what we'd call a big traveller.

It's a fine. Plain and simple! "Roberts noted that even if some may call it a fine it's really a tax"! That is the distinction? LMAO! That's what is called a lie, Mobarf! LMAO!
A tax assessed in the tax code is a tax, even if it serves a punitive or persuasive purpose. That is what is called a fact.

Nothing that Justice Roberts said implies that taxpayers, in general, are lawbreakers.

Justice Roberts noted that even if some may call it a fine it's really a tax. That is he noted the distinction. Play Justice Dale doltishly seems to think JR equated fines and taxes. The starting point of Dale's infantile rant is out in left field. A tax, assessed in the tax code, selectively imposed as a penalty, is indeed a tax, even if it operates effectively as an ersatz fine. Other examples include so-called "sin taxes". Every time a cigarette smoker lights up he pays a penalty to the government. As Justice Roberts stated, you may call it a fine but it's really a tax.
Rest assured, Play Justice Dale still doesn't get it.

Now Dufus Dale thinks a straightforward declarative sentence is a "play on words" because he cannot understand plain English.

Simple common sense; right over his head.
