I love this speech. Can't say I disagree with anything much in there except for when he says, "If you believe race is deeper than skin color, and means blood and heritage..." On the one hand, race probably is deeper than skin color, at least, that's what my Progressive professors in college always told me whenever they wished to discuss identity politics.
Can't say that this blogger is a big fan of Rand Paul. Sure, he has some libertarian credentials, had the balls to stand up to smug cunt extraordinaire Rachel Maddow and explain why the 1964 "Civil Rights" Act is evil, was the only Republican with the kohones to filibuster the Senate over the use of CIA drone strikes abroad (or at home), and now has the audacity to challenge our Progressive Dear Leader (gasp!) and his use of the NSA to spy on everyone, everywhere, all the time. (Or is it the NSA using our Dear Leader? One can never be too sure in this brave new world.) Now, the Bloody Rag, like most of its friends in high places, doesn't usually take too nicely to people who consistently challenge its official state dogmas about "progress" or any of the high priests who help carry out the holy mission of "progress". And does the Bloody Rag like it when someone challenges Dear Leader more than once? You bet your sweet ass it doesn't. Hence the article below. I've republished it to spread it around the inter-webs, like a venerial disease, just in case the Rag decides to envelope this article in one of its many chastity paywall belts to guard it from evil-doers and extremists who would dare to penetrate its smutty existence without paying a dime to its pimp (or, for that matter, asking for permission).
Libertarians and extremists need not reply to the slander in this article for mainly three reasons: 1) Rand Paul is neither libertarian, proper, nor extremist; 2) His political successes, though perhaps honestly executed as noble libertarian causes at times, do not help but hurt our primary goal; 3) Why lower yourself to the propaganda standards of the Bloody Rag? (That's what I'm asking myself right now.)
A more interesting question: what would that ultimate goal mentioned above be for us evil-doers? A post-American Empire, post-EU, post-UN world, of course, a world without massive super states dominating the world, a world without The Cathedral. In short, we want the same thing Punk Rockers have always wanted: to tear down Western Civilization as it exists today. And in order do so, more and more people--not all, not even a majority, but more than what we have now--need to give up their faith in the dominant, mainstream religion of the West: "progress". Thus, we can't have little Rand Paul politicians going around and giving hope to the populist masses--those with a libertarian, anarchistic or reactionary bent, at least--that somehow we can "Restore the Constitution," "Save the Republic," or "Reclaim America," can we now?
We need fear, doubt, hopelessness, anguish, misery, sorrow. Not hope! Dear God, that's the last thing we need. More people now more than ever need to give up hope on the American Dream, the American Experiment, the American Way of Life, if we ever expect them to see past silly metaphysical errors and mass delusions such as "progress". Therefore, what would be better than a Rand Paul win in 2016? Obviously, a Chris Christie win. But what would be even better than that? Go, go, Hilary!
So, spread the Rag around! Let's help sink this fat, bloated ship, America, before it sinks us.
And remember, word up for Hilary 2016, y'all!
