Conservatives, a Hard Lot to Figure Out...

Rational Nation USA
Purveyor of Truth

There was a time, 27 years past and beyond when being a conservative was meaningful and one could proudly claim he or she was a conservative. Conservatives held a clear set of principles, namely fiscal responsibility, limited yet effective government, they understood that as society and circumstances changed compromise was necessary to maintain a functioning government that leading a nation of 300 plus million is far more challenging than leading a nation of 6 million. Today the intellectuals of the early conservative movement have been replaced by the Limbaugh, Levin, Hannity, Ingram, Beck, O'Reilly, Coulter, Fox News. et all types and substance and truth is now trumped by innuendo, fabrication, and appearances. Talking points and hyperbole has taken the place of honest debate and discussion. Winning the talking points of the day is all that matters, whether they are truthful or not really is of little concern to the conservative camp these days. Rather than looking at facts and considering alternatives beyond their narrow scope of attention and reference they simply prefer to remain trapped inside the set confines of their self imposed paradigms.

As Baltimore experiences rioting, destruction of property, and looting, many on the right, rather than honestly analyzing the situation and considering the societal issues contributing to this tragic circumstance simply respond with the usual rhetoric and blame President Obama and the liberal/progressive agenda for all the problems. It is easier than to engage a genuine thinking process and discuss potential solutions that address the underlying problems of lack of economic opportunity, racial profiling, unequal justice under the law, and others.

Perusing rightwing blogistan one will find many sites such as described above. THIS SITE is representative of many. Examples from a recent post follow.

It's time for “We The People” to take our country back from Obama and those idiot progressives.

Taking about Progressives, I just came back fro an Unfortunate Visit that I made to that imbicle lefty, Progressive Eruptions blog, written by that nut-case, Shaw. (what's her face"
where she constanly directly her nastiness twards Rightwingers. How can this COW constantly defend everything thjat this failure of a "president " does. .
And talking about Obama, one has to wonder why has Obama not addressed the rioting in Baltimore, when he sticks his big nose into everyother affaire that's none of his business.? And I wonder if Freddy Gray would look like his son, if he had one. He would also be one of the thugs.

And talking about Freddy Gray's Funeral, Obama needs to tell his Bros to behave!

And just breaking....Baltimore's high school youth have declared a "purge" and are engaged in a Palestinian style assault on cops!! Rushing the police line and throwing rocks! Cops are in RETREAT!!! Some of the punk thugs are throwing bricks at the cops,
The overhead helicopter video is crazy! Looks like some Mid East shit! This is getting to be very scary

Oh my God!!! Fox is showing a second retreat by cops...swarming mob of black youth hurling bricks at cops...police line is retreating and surrendering the street.

The cops are just taking the barrages of rocks and bricks...they are being struck and just standing through it...no arrests...no retaliation.

Just saw a cop hit in the head by a concrete chunk thrown...which is DEADLY force....and coos kept retreating.

Time to unleash SWAT. Fuck em.
POPCORN!!! BAGEL BITES!!! This shits better than Hollywood! These wonderful diverse culturally beautiful Genital Giants are a picture of the wonderful future generation we have in America, perhaps some more Affirmative Action money would help.
Or maybe Obama should call for a “Beer Summit”.
Baltimore protests turn violent; police officers injured.
Seven Baltimore police officers have suffered major injuries in street clashes, a police spokesman said. One officer was knocked unconscious and others had broken bones, Capt. Eric Kowalczyk said. Video showed a police car burning and a pharmacy damaged. The unrest came the same day as the funeral in West Baltimore for Freddie Gray, who died while in police custody.
I think that they should call Hillary Clinton and Janet Reno in on this one ... they’ll know how to handle the dissidents when they step out of line.

I bet 90% of those anarchists could care less about Freddie Gray .They only care when one of their own are killed by someone other than them

Obama's legacy is going to be “The Great American Race War”, as the “Peaceful protest” has been turning into riots, looting, burning, and all of the usual
destruction of other peoples property. and the confrontations with the police!

And as usual his is just a reason to get “Free Stuff” from looting, and showing more of their hatred.


If anything, people are gonna start sympathizing with the police instead of these animals aka “protestors” who have to deal with these animals daily. I guess that this is how they show support their cause...by disrupting traffic and ruining peoples property and stealing and burning. Yeah, that’ll work!

This is nothing more than SICK-sties REDUX –– it's deja vu all over again.

Welfare is like Cracker-Jax -- the more they get, the more they want.

Welfare creates dependency that soon becomes addiction. We should all know by now that addicts always need MORE to get high, and when they can't get "more," they turn to CRIME, and the crime becomes increasingly violent as the addict gets weaker, more anti-social, more helpless and more hopeless by the hour.

This is the End Product of the Slave Trade.

Hasn't it cast a long long shadow?

HOWEVER, if we've learned anything at all, –– which seems doubtful –– we should have learned by now that "LIBERALISM" and "WELFARE STATISM" are NOT effective remedies to an admittedly deplorable situation.

they think this helps them but it makes them look like savages and makes the rest of the law abiding community members look bad.
Time for some real leadership instead of this constant blame and finger pointing like Barry does.

These folks know how to make one reconsider whether being a conservative these days makes any rational sense. Considering THIS as well it certainly tilts away from embracing conservatism anymore.

  1. Les, those commenters at the Skank Tank are NOT conservatives. They are a fringe group of malcontented losers who have nothing of value to contribute to any logical discussion. I mean Radical Redneck? Seriously? I've read smarter opinions on gas station walls. He acts like a sexually repressed adolescent who gets himself off by writing things he's probably read in a junior high school urinal. He and his cohorts are not worth a minute of your precious time. They. Are. Losers! Look at how they get their kicks! It's really hilarious. Really. Do their stupid comments change anything? No. It's all mental masturbation on their part, and they get off on that blog by being stupid, ignorant, and delusional.

    Really. I suggest you find more intellectual stimulation at a gathering of bacteria than at Lisa's grunge blog.

    LOL!

    That they keep mentioning me and my blog proves that I really get to their lizard brains. They never shut up about me or my blog. I win!!!!!

    And so do you, Les. LOL!

    No one with an ounce of brains considers them conservatives. They're a collection of raging red-assed baboons.

    1. So women write on the restroom walls too. And here I thought it was just a guy thing, another childhood myth destroyed.

      You know by not lumping all conservatives together you are setting yourself apart from the leftist loon.

    2. Shaw: Laughing out loud here.

  2. Yes, I know I should have been much more specific and narrowed it down to... delusional rabid extremists and intellectually dishonest brain dead Neanderthals.

    It's just there are more than I thought and they seem to be multiplying. But you are right of course, there are more conservatives that think rationally and do want what is right for the country than not. I suppose. But then again; look who they elect.

  3. The rabble wants to speak without having to encounter a response. That isn't free speech. Free speech is not speech without a reply, a consequence or a response. Free speech does not provide a platform from which others must only listen. In demonizing liberals as fascists and mis-characterizing mainstream conservatives as RINOs, their goal is to shut down democratic debate and bully those who stand in opposition.

    Why anyone pays attention to this rabble makes no sense. These people are misfits, not lawmakers or news makers. They have no power over you unless you give them power by paying attention to them. Ignore them; don't enable them.

  4. Speaking of enabling, to put it another way, like in the case of the alcoholic or drug addict don't provide the means for the next drink or fix eh (O)CT(O)PUS? Or provide excuses for their behavior.

  5. So how much is Lisa paying you to promote her site? Or do you do it for free?

    1. I'm highly insulted Jerry. That you would even think I would take a Penney to promote her Stench Trench. I see it more as a public service endeavor. You know, expose the nuts that infest the cyber universe and give conservatives and libertarians a bad name.

      So you see, I'm perfectly happy to do it for free. :-)

  6. Is Lisa still enthusiastically promoting hard core pornography like she has on her blog for years, Les?

    I stopped looking there since Octo and others outed her as a sort of Larry Flynt wanna be.

  7. It's hardcore racism with a side of pornography, I'd say. Note that Will's friend Rusty wants the National Guard to murder 100 or so protestors. Perhaps to kick off the "race war" they're all desperate for.

    1. Yes, the site has its share of hardcore racists. Among the Radical Redneck and Shackleford rank at the top.

      However, you have NO proof Shackleford want a race war. Talk is cheap and as large an as*hole as Shackleford is I don't believe he wants a race war.

      Your statement is mere conjecture and as such really has no place in this discussion.

      Delete
    2. RN: A massacre of 100 civilians by the police, which Rusty did specifically call for, is indeed rather outrageous. Possibly-successful calls for UN sanctions would be just one example of the blowback from this.

      Talk is cheap, yes, but in this case, Dervish Sanders didn't have to "spend" much. His hyperbole didn't wing it too far at all from Rusty's original statement. With all due respect, I've seen worse and wilder conjecture slip through.
