Can we get one of these for Pamela Geller, please?
Just in case you thought that one of the right-wing’s leading Internet lights (remember, this woman scored an interview with US ambassador to the UN John Bolton) might step back from the brink after losing last night, think again:
The Battle is Over, the War Begins Today I unpacked my winter
clothes in preparation for a long winter, and a long winter is coming
if not of the thermometer, then of the soul. A man that represents not
simply an opposing view but the view of those who oppose America and
all it stands for, will sit in the Oval Office. Worse still he did not
get there through a democratic election but through fraud, voter
intimidation and every dirty trick culminating in a campaign that had
little in common with conventional American politics and a great deal
in common with the cults of personality cultivated by totalitarian
Our disappointment has come tonight. The disappointment of those
Democratic party voters who are still of the party of Jefferson rather
than the party of Ayers will come later and it will be far darker
because we were innocent of it, while they will be complicit in all
that he does. But we are not simply “Don’t Blame Me” voters. We did our
best to fight against this and while that may be small comfort against
what comes, it is important to remember that, just as it is remembered
in every age the people who stood against the rise of evil and took no
part in the mass madness that brings tyrants to power and overturns
But we are a long way from surrender. The battle is over, the war
begins. The United States government now falls into the hands of the
enemies of this country and civilization for a time or forever. And
that is part of what the war is about. The country has been in the
hands of people we disagreed with, but never in the hands of people
whose views are as diametrically opposed to ours as anything in the
Third Reich or the Kremlin. In their hands Federal power becomes enemy
power. The more ineffective and tied up they are, the less damage they
The battle against them must be twofold, first to limit the damage
they can do while in power, and secondly to plan and prepare to retake
Congress and then the White House in a coherent and orderly manner
without the chaos and backbiting that has characterized the last year
of this campaign. It will be all too easy to fall into the blame game
and to let it devour us, too much of the conservative movement and the
anti-jihad blogsphere is already fractured. The goal now must be to
heal those fractures, to create unity around a single purpose, to
liberate America again.
It will not be an easy struggle. The Obama years will make the worst
of the Clinton years look mild by comparison. We have seen the thuggish
abuses of power that brought Obama into office, but that is only a
taste of what an Obama administration in control of the Federal
government will be able to do. We have seen only a shadow of the
ruthless methods that were used to bring him to power, and even that
shadow is mostly dismissed as conspiracy theories. But that is also our
best hope. Obama’s only real calling card has been an empty promise.
Now he will have power and responsibility and we know he will abuse
them. Arrogance was and remains his achilles heel and the achilles heel
of his backers. And when their revolution runs into the reality of
voter expectations, there will be the opening to begin the political
downfall of this government.
For my own part I do not recognize Obama as my President, nor will I
refer to him as such. He has no legal right to serve in office nor has
he won a legal election. Nor do his cronies have any right to serve in
any position they are appointed to.
Wow. There’s someone you just can’t reach.
Waaaay back in the dark ages, before the Internets, the talk radio gasbags said the same thing about Clinton–he wasn’t legitimate, he was a thug, they’d never accept him as president, he’d make Carter look like Jesus, etc., etc.
So it’s same song, different verse. Now Clinton has been rehabilitated, and Obama will be the worst blah blah blah. Learn some new tricks, assholes.
Personally, I can’t wait until Pam Atlas has to report for re-education. It will be a great day, comrades!
