Dada conservatism

From the Young Conservative Anthem.

“Phase me, make me, into something that ain’t me

Serious c… can’t nobody shake me

great like the Gatsby, poppin posers like acne

Don’t matter if your gay, straight, Christian or Muslim

There’s one thing we all hate, called socialism.

It’s loathsome, and America ain’t the outcome,

Raise taxes on the people,

And you’re gonna feel symptoms, problems

I gotta message for a young con:

superman that socialism,

waterboard that terrorism”

See the video at HuffPo!

Adding, it’s very novel for students at an Ivy League college to lecture people about hard work and playing the hand one is dealt. Not saying people there don’t work hard, but if you’re going to an Ivy League school you’ve got a pretty good shot at a decent life. As with seemingly all conservatives, the sense of victim hood is palpable, constant and—hilariously absurd.

Likely these two will be installed on Wall Street in a few years, where they can dream up innovative financial products so another generation gets to enjoy the benefits of derivatives.

(Props to Aneurin for noticing this bit of strangeness.)

    “The modern conservative is engaged in one of man’s oldest exercises in moral philosophy: that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.”– John Kenneth Galbraith, economist and author

    ANOTHER post Republicans??? Told ya John was an unhappy guy. Remember what I taught you people. Pull back. Look for patterns with these bloggers. With John, he’s just one miserable guy who loves to bitch. Democrats are running the government, from top to bottom, so you’d think he’d be happy, right? Nope. He’s miserable. Because now it’s not so easy for him to rant about stuff. So what does he do? He bitches about the party that ISN’T in power.

    Jon reminds me of Squealer the Pig in Animal Farm…always for bigger, more intrusive government!

    Squealer Said: “Do not imagine, comrades, that leadership is a pleasure. On the contrary, it is a deep and heavy responsibility. No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal. He would be only too happy to let you make your decisions for yourselves. But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, comrades, and then where should we be?”

    That’s why we must trust everything we own, everything we work hard for and all our thoughts to Head Komrade Obama.

    Remember what Boxer said, “”Ah, that is different!” said Boxer. “If Comrade Napoleon says it, it must be right.”

    If Komrade Obama says something, it must be right~!


    We are well down the slippery slope of Socialism. Good luck with that. Obama wants the US so deeply in debt, that private industry is controlled by HIM!
    Let’s be Obama’s little Animal Farm——-

    No one dare questions Komrade!
    We must have unity of thoughts…


    You KLOWNS are truly Obama’s Useful Idiots.

    Poor Klynical, the cold war is over. Did you not pay attention?

    Most of Europe is “socialist” according to you and loving life just fine. In the meantime, GM is declaring bankruptcy as is the republican party.The republicans are bereft of ideas and falling into sub-minority status. They deserve our contempt for the low-minded, whiny, pathetic “leaders” and the way they cater to racist and classist ideas.

    the only “whinbers’ here are the republican losers – have you listened to Limbaugh, Tancredo, Hannitty and the other small-minded bigots lately?

    Don’t:just get a lobotomy instead. I see Klynical already has…

    Being called a KLOWN by a psychopathic fool and schizophrenic idiot like Klynical is a compliment. Thank you. Your red clown feet get in the way of your accurately assessing reality.

    Gee was that video for real???

    What a joke – a couple of greedhead, pseudo-rappin’, right-wing fiends-in-training belting out a gaggle of tired right wing bullshit talking points. “Cons” indeed.

    I wish I could get my 4:38 back.

    The only people I see questioning the decision that the other animals made are the Republicans about the November 4th election results.

    They seem to think that the duly elected by a majority of the citizens in the country POTUS should be overthrown because he isn’t a sociopath/psychopath and actually values empathy.
