Say Goodnight Gracie Part Five of Five … or … Less Talk, More Monkey

E-mail Print PDF

Ever since the shitshow ended a couple of nights ago there has been a plethora of polite analyses of What The Fuck Just Happened. Desperate pundits are trying to be reasonable while describing how and why Fucko the Clown just won the election.

This is what Denial looks like:

The hubris of Hillary Clinton and the DNC empowered them to steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders because not only did she “deserve” the presidency, but they believed she could beat Fucko in the general election. Clinton, the DNC, and their donors, completely underestimated, or ignored, the Hillary hatred that has been simmering for decades, as well as the contempt voters have for establishment politics.

True. But the most insidious form of denial is always true. But it is not the whole truth. That is why denial is a complete waste of time and doesn't solve anything. It is always easier to accept and believe a partial truth because it is a distraction that keeps us from recognizing the larger, more uncomfortable truth.

Occam's razor. Noun. The maxim that assumptions introduced to explain a thing must not be multiplied beyond necessity.

Let's see how it works.

59,821,874 Americans voted for Fucko the Clown therefore there are 59,821,874 Crazy Stupid People in the United States. Regardless of the fact that the previous sentence sounds like a harsh generalization … it is not. The only way anyone could vote for Fucko is if he/she is a Crazy Stupid Person. Rational smart people could not vote for, would never vote for, anyone like Fucko the Clown for president.

That's it. That's all we need to know. There were enough Crazy Stupid People in the United States on November 8, 2016, to elect Fucko the Clown.

Though that's the end of the story, we always want to know more. We need to know how and why this happened. The other uncomfortable truth is: In this case … no we don't. It doesn't matter. Fucko the Clown is going to be the next president of the United States. End of story.

It's like one of my darker imaginings .... I'm in my doctor's office discussing my recent lab tests and he tells me I've got lung cancer. I ask how? Why? He bluntly tells me because I smoked cigarettes for 44 years. That perfectly valid explanation in a sense has nothing to do with the current problem. Smoking caused the cancer … but the problem isn't smoking … it's having lung cancer.

The United States of America has Fucko the Clown. And that happened because there are too many Crazy Stupid People. But what if we want to know where Crazy Stupid People came from? I don't think that's our problem but what the hell … I'm not tired of typing yet so here are the broad strokes. There is obviously more to it but I don't have the time or will to go too far down my long long list.

In 1987, the FCC got rid of the Fairness Doctrine unleashing Rush Limbaugh and all the rest of the lying assholes who filled the radio airwaves with hate speech.

In 1996, Fox News began pumping out the same pernicious lies on cable television 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

If that stew simmers for 30 years, you end up with people who will vote for Fucko the Clown.

The reason hate radio and Fox News took root and grew like weeds in the American Brain is because the country has always been a racist, misogynist, xenophobic, nation. Always. Hate radio and Fox News didn't seductively whisper lies into the ears of the American public … they shouted. And about half of the population responded. And believed. Because millions of Americans find it easier to hate people of color, women, non-Christians, intellectuals, and anybody that's not “from here” because that's what they already believe. They just finally had a presence in the media who affirmed it.

Hate radio and Fox News blame the ills afflicting their audience on everyone except the real culprits. That is the fundamental lie of Hate radio and Fox News. Their purpose is to misdirect attention away from The Elite and blame everything on the most powerless amongst us. And their audience believed the lie because they were raised to believe it, they raise their children to believe it, and it's easier and more gratifying for Crazy Stupid people to join in on the oppression of women and minorities than collectively organize against their actual corporate elites.

For the most part The United States of America, until a few days ago anyway, wore a mask of sanity. The election of Fucko the Clown did away with the bother of pretending to be sane.

I've listened, watched, and read too many analyses from liberals about What The Fuck Just Happened explaining how we must make sure this doesn't happen “next time.”

What part of:

Complete control over all branches of government, almost 60 million Crazy Stupid voters, and last but certainly not least … Fucko the Clown, makes them think that there will even be a “next time”?
