Rules for Republican Ratfuckers

One of the silliest aspects of the Tea-Bagging-Town Maul spectacles last August was the widespread proclamation by conservatives that they are carrying on the movement of Saul Alinsky. While it was (and still is) laughable that people fighting on behalf on privilege and concentration of power could in any way lay claim to Alinsky’s legacy, it’s instructive to note just how delusional conservatives have allowed themselves to become.

For example, the anti-ACORN agit-prop activist James O’Keefe, arrested this week with three others in New Orleans for allegedly trying to bug the office of Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-Louisiana, was a main proponent of this nonsense.

Here’s O’Keefe being quoted by Politico in September of 2009:

James O’Keefe, the activist and filmmaker who posed as a pimp for an expose of several ACORN offices in the Northeast, told the New York Post earlier this week] that he, too, had been inspired by “Rules for Radicals,” which includes such tactical lessons as “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon” and “Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.”

O’Keefe told the paper he was trying to expose the “absurdities of the enemy by employing their own rules and language.”

“If you can make impossible demands on your enemy, you can destroy them,” he said.

Yeah, ridicule is indeed a potent weapon, as O’Keefe and his little band of modern-day Plumbers are about to find out.

O’Keefe has his actual roots, not in community organizing, but in the wingnut welfare system that sponsors far right “alternative” college newspapers, and it appears a couple of his fellow travelers do as well. Check out TPMMuckraker for more on that.

O’Keefe had his moment of glory, and became a hero to conservatives, because his clearly deceptive and unethical assault on ACORN was pushed into the broader media environment by Fox Noise. But this is not knew, and conservatives rarely pay much of a price for their egregious statements and actions, and in fact one can argue it only endears them to their supporters.

The problem for the rest of society is the conservative agit-prop artists become steadily more outrageous and egregious. Because the legacy media has become accustomed to right wing demagoguery, it seems to barely register when someone on the right jokes about kidnapping and torturing the Speaker of the House. Ha. Ha, whatever. Nobody would really go kill a doctor Nancy Pelosi, don’t be silly.

As progressives have known for a long time, the mind-set of many conservatives is basically akin to that of criminals who justify their wrong actions through excuse-making and an unjustified sense of victimhood. In this parallel universe, fostered, nurtured and encouraged by the broad array of stink tanks, news outlets and operatives now known as the Noise Machine, wrong actions against perceived enemies are justified because the very existence of the country is at stake. Never mind the law, never mind the truth, never mind what a democracy actually can be.

The conservative tribe demands that the enemy (that would be us) be attacked, and meanwhile our tribe is in the nurse’s office because we glued our balls to our legs again, to steal a recent quip about health care reform from Jon Stewart.

And now this is all manifesting itself in outright criminality, and of course that’s not new either. From the Palmer Raids to the McCarthy and Nixon eras, the song remains the same. Remember how much hard time Oliver North did? Yeah.

Some of the national commentary about O’Keefe has centered on what his “motivations” were, which I suppose has some bearing but also acts to disguise the foul nature of being caught in such a situation. I mean, they were pretending to be telephone repairmen in the office of a Senator who sits on the Homeland Security committee? One of them apparently had a listening device in a car nearby? Is there some kind of explanation possible that would justify that, other than being lunatics?

Some national commenters have predicted that O’Keefe’s future is in jeopardy, but that seems unlikely. If history is any guide, O’Keefe could very well wind up in charge of a giant right wing agit-prop machine to wield against his perceived enemies, just like the man who gave him so much air time in the first place, Roger Ailes of Fox Noise. (For those not clicking the preceding link, Ailes got his first big national political job in the 1968 campaign of Richard M. Nixon. The song remains the same.)

Given O’Keefe’s problems choosing between right actions and wrong actions, for anyone in the legacy media to ever, ever, ever again lend O’Keefe credibility is to deny what is plain and obvious to everyone outside the conservative pathology bubble: much of the right-wing in this country is utterly and completely unhinged. Normal people want to be able to afford doctor’s visits and pay for groceries, they don’t think about bugging Senate offices, and normal people consider law breaking to be wrong.

And they don’t believe a damn word coming out of Fox Noise.

    Great piece regarding how it is that doing bad things leads to being rewarded in our messed up country.
    Reminds me of when I was a cog in the big corporate world. If you were an asshole and did something terrible, you got promoted as a way of getting you out of the way.

    Goldy tries to be truthful for a change by saying “allegedly trying to bug the office of Sen. Mary Landrieu”
    ALLEGEDLY…very important word.
    Then Goldy goes ahead and convicts him with a trial.
    You KLOWNS support giving terrorists a trial for cryin’ outloud.
    But an American citizen is convicted in the leftist press without one??

    Maybe he did and maybe he didn’t.
    If convicted, he should face jail time.

    Wednesday at three I called the phone company
    Singin’ hey baby, put a phone in for me
    Thursday at four he came a-knockin’ at my door
    Singin’ “Hey baby, I’m your telephone man
    You just show me where you want it
    And I’ll put it where I can
    I can put it in the bedroom
    I can put it in the hall
    I can put it in the bathroom
    I can hang it on the wall
    You can have it with a buzz
    You can have it with a ring
    And if you really want it
    You can have a ding-a-ling
    Because, hey baby, I’m your telephone man … via Meri Wilson

    Say what? Jon Stewart glued his balls to his brain again? Maybe that explains why he couldn’t go half a round with John Yoo, a real man with a real brain.

    As for Palmer and McCarthy and Nixon, oh my, remember that Joe McCarthy and big Dick Nixon were Palmer-lite, and that Palmer was a progressive Democrat Quaker. For modern braindead progressives with glued balls (Jon Stewart and Jon DeVore), history began at Wheeling in 1950 and ended in 1974 BC, Before Carter.

    Maybe y’all need to get back to the progressive tyrants of the Palmer Era, back when Big Government really knew how to push its weight around. Getting back to Palmer-Wilson’s 1919 was a lot like getting back in the USSR.

    Typical left-wing lies and hypocrisy, in other words. Falling all over O’Keefe without having any real facts while pretending that what O’Keefe proved about the culture of corruption at ACORN was a “clearly deceptive and unethical assault.” Actually, Jon and Jon, Obama’s ACORN is clearly deceptive and unethical. Amazing that it took days or weeks for Big Media and teeny-weenie HA media to even mention it, while convicting O’Keefe in print mere moments after he hung up the phone.

    It’s like the New York Times running specious slander on page 1 about a McCain sex affair, while hiding for weeks and months the truth about Goldy’s love daddy, John Edwards, who was one haircut away from the presidency.

    BTW I think even your pea-brain can make a distinction between situations where an accused criminal is essentially caught red-handed and where the facts are perhaps a bit more murky.

    Whatever O’Keefe’s supposed excuse for running around the New Orleans Federal Building pretending to be a telephone company worker, I doubt it has a completely innocent explanation.

    That aside, Progressivism simply is ineffectual in the teeth of the real crisis of the Economic Depression, Foriegn Policy disasters and a president who does not faithfully express that he indeed is one of us. Independants should leave you in drove’s and already have. Search #MASEN trending.

    What kind of trouble you folks seem to have in the Market of Ideas, no one seems to be buying such obvious lies anymore, brutal insults fuel insipid debate, yet still they seem determined to carry the country in dangerous times on agendas undersirable held together by faux populist glue. Go on, it seems to be working.

    And so it came to pass that Landrieu walked onto the Senate floor midafternoon Saturday to announce her aye vote — and to trumpet the financial “fix” she had arranged for Louisiana. “I am not going to be defensive,” she declared. “And it’s not a $100 million fix. It’s a $300 million fix.”

    Correction, Mr. Mungo Jerry. It’s a begger fix than you realized, and the fix is in. And the fix is on, except that our commander in chief, the smartest man who ever lived, now claims that he Knew Nothing about all the dirty dealing that made his health-care plan the wretched wreck that it is.

    Speaking of Know Nothings, shouldn’t Goldy have run at least one little squib about Goldy’s love daddy whose daughter is the granddaughter of a mill worker from the second of John Edwards’ two Americas?

    Almost half of all Americans surveyed in the poll of 1,151 registered voters said they trusted Fox News. That is a notably larger vote of confidence than the 39% who said they trusted Fox’s great rival CNN, and vastly more than the credibility ratings of the traditional news networks ABC News (31%), CBS News (32%) and NBC News (35%).

    Little Ricky Dumbass @ 74: “Dumbass shows up to work everyday dressed to the nines and saying all the right things to make him seem competent to handle the job, but when handed the job, falls flat on his face. That’s Obama in a nutshell. Fucking retards like “proud leftist” falling in love with a nobody with no experience thinking they’re qualified based on superficial qualifications.”

    Ah, yes, and how would your description not apply to our last president, GWB? Ricky, you are pathetic.

    re 69: The founding father’s embraced slavery, among other things.

    i know. for the life of me i cant understand some of the things they believed in those days. flat earth, couldnt split the atom. i always wonder how come thomas jefferson never jumped up on the table and said, “by god, its time to let men marry other men!!!!”

    The Centrist spews:

    re 75: I’m afraid that ‘Not true’ does not refute the real and obvious fact that foreign controlled corporations (thanks to the conservative faction on the Supreme Court) now have carte blanche to spend as much money as they like influencing American elections.

    Empty Suit Obama spews:

    @ 77 & 78- It appears that “plowed leftist” has been drinking again. They call that liquid courage where I come from….however the truth is after 1 year, Obama is the incompetent empty suit jackass I told you he was 18 months ago…

    Put an “entry level” executive of the country usually isn’t the brightest thing to do, but hey, the American people decided otherwise just over a year ago. Expect them to come back to their senses in 2010 and 2012. The sooner this clown is sent back to the community organizing gig in the southside of Shithole Chicago, the better.

    re 79: “i know. for the life of me i cant understand some of the things they believed in those days.”

    Thanks for admitting what we already knew. You DON’T understand what the founding fathers meant. Divining the motives of people who have been dead for hundres of years takes more smarts and scholarship than you, me, Alito will ever muster.

    And when an ass-kissing lickspittle like Alito thinks he can, that ought to automatically exclude him from being on the court.

    A sperm burping gutter slut like you calls himself ‘the centrist’? what a fucking retard. Too amusing for words. Some just have too much of a man-crush on the Chi-town assclown. It’s kind of weird in its cultlike obedience.

    Ricky,
    I was just quoting you. Not much else. Let me be brutally frank, Ricky. Of all our trolls, I think you and manoftruth are the most hateful people here. Do you think that this country, a country founded on optimism, would do well by following your path? Little Ricky, let me give you some credit, I think your IQ is slightly higher than that of manoftruth. That doesn’t say much, however.

    …thinking isn’t your strong suit, son.

    Do you think that this country, a country founded on optimism, would do well by following your path?

    Yes, I believe in individual freedom. Your dumbass believes in being enslaved to government. You are exactly the antithesis of what this country was founded on, you’re just not bright enough to understand it. But then, most HA regulars are your mirror image.

    JOK III the pimp???

    TBS: Can you speak a little about your use of Saul Alinsky?

    O’Keefe: Alinsky is a genius and has been central to my videos. His tactics are ideologically neutral, and stand the test of time. They can ultimately be used for truth and righteousness not just for anarchy and disorder (as they may have been used in the past).

    I don’t know if they still do, but Detroit used to have a “Pimps and Ho’s” convention.

    If they do, could someone start a Facebook for that little frat rat republican and his trashy friend to raise enough money to go? Before he moves up to being a burglar, like Liddy the other CI lying A thug, and Watergate.
