We’re four Senators and one President away from Thunderdome. Still wanna primary Obama?I’m doing one of those rare things where I repost another blogger’s work in full because I can’t say it any better, and I fear my head would explode were I to try.
I do want to draw attention to one thing in particular, and that is all thePRAISE ED bullshit on MSNBC this week. How dare he pretend like he’s some fucking working class hero when he was leading the FUCK OBAMA movement during the midterms?
I wrote extensively about how the left was shooting itself in the foot, not only by refusing to vote, but also by refusing to participate in any GOTVactivities on behalf of Democrats because Democrats needed to be taught a lesson, that’s why!
Yeah, yeah, I’m an Obot. Do you know what being an Obot means? It means being fucking practical. It means not spending days on end looking for any way to attack Democrats and the Democratic leadership. It means not referring to Democrats as “house niggers.” It means not calling Obama a liar when he tries to get something done and is hamstrung by Congress (Gitmo). It means not expecting Obama to speak out for your little pet projects and stomping your foot when he doesn’t. It means stop looking to Obama to tell us what to do. It means stop trying to convince black people that Obama is fucking...(I’m looking at you, Arianna.) It means stop expecting that your progressive utopia is going to shoot out of Obama’s ass. It means stop fucking lying and start fucking working.
We have to do it for ourselves. We need to organize at the community level.1
Sitting behind a keyboard typing about how many penises Obama took from you simply pushes the Teabilly/GOP takeover onward.
Seriously. We need to take this fight to the streets and to Fox News’s front door. Fox News is killing this country. It is brainwashing people into thinking that they should be attacking one another. They are dividing the middle class and then pitting the two sides against each other and they are doing it on behalf of the Tea Party and the GOP.
So enough already.
If you want to be a nihilist and talk about how we’re fucked and there’s nothing we can do about it, then go get your smelling salts and your fainting couch and get the fuck out of the way.
If you want to talk about “Well they got the leadership they voted for; you reap what you sow” then get the fuck out of the way.
We are 4 Senators and 1 President away from total fucking apocalyptic ruin. Let those of us who still give a shit go about trying to fix this mess.
The rest of you? GET OUT OF THE FUCKING WAY.(Eclectablog’s full post after the jump)
