Carlson’s Carnage

`

The irony of free speech / free press rights is that, when the bereft of all human decency, betrayers of Democracy exercise… correction… exploit them, egregiously so, they risk exterminating the very document that guarantees these 1st Amendment protections.

Case in point…

The Fox Network’s talking head / head case, one Tucker Carlson, has become a lump of malleable clay / pliable play dough in the hands of one Vladimir Putin, the strong-arm, who has not even needed to utilize his iron fist grip to facilely fashion that Tucker into Russia’s propagandist newbie.

Indeed, as I type and you read these words, the utterances of Putin’s patsy / protégé are being exploited in an attempt to [1] firm up Russian troops’ flaccid morale and [2] demoralize Ukraine’s indefatigable freedom fighters.

The very notion of that verbal venture, exemplifies just how unconscionable, unforgivable and un-American Carlson’s screechy screeds actually are; how such stench fails to pass the protected free speech sniff test.

After all, what that hack, Tucker, is up to is akin to shouting “FIRE” in a crowded theater; where no such conflagration exists; an action that’d absolutely result in needless injuries and fatalities.

More to the point…

Traitor Tucker is now shouting, “FIRE!” within Putin’s Ukraine theater of war; pointlessly perpetrating and perpetuating carnage and property damage; and as such, he’s become complicit in Putin’s crimes against humanity.

Tucker Carlson now has, on his own hands, the indelible blood red stain of Putin’s pointless war.

Seeing how, nowadays, nowhere within this Earthly realm, do right wing extremists ever get raked over the coals (re their treachery), perhaps, someday, he’ll be invited to attend Beelzebub’s “barbecue” (no asbestos attire allowed)?

Fortune Cookie Blog (Freedom)

`

Both Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Press
must be sacrosanct, yet, not without constraint.
Be words roared from the rooftops with resolve
OR words penned into parchment with purpose,
as Hippocrates’ Oath alludes, First Do No Harm!

`

`

`

Now that we’ve consumed today’s tasty Fortune Cookie, let’s turn our attention to the crumbs; i.e., the crummy entities who inspired its baking; the crummy bums who ARE doing harm.

We’re talking about the ideologically ORANGE shifted, streamers, broadcasters and bloggers, worldwide, who get off on sticking their collective nose into America’s business. As if their own homelands are WHAT?

  • So problem-free they’re yawning thru slow news days?
  • ONLY they possess the expertise to set America right?

My gawd, that’s both disingenuousness and hubris at its butt-ugliest.

Beyond that, their delusion-fueled notions of what constitutes “right” is nothing short of encouraging the Orange Menace to take another stab at the Oval Office, come 2024; an election where, win or lose, the vengeance seeking OrangeMan’s top priorities will zero in on burning down Democracy / America and the entire planet.

Both now, and for the foreseeable future, these meddlers, abroad, will continue to conspire with Stateside, ideologically ORANGE shifted, streamers, broadcasters and bloggers; the whole kit and caboodle determined to undermine what little progress President Joe Biden has made; to utterly roadblock what he has yet to accomplish.

And while, via re their surge in TV / Radio ratings and website hits, these pundits stand to flourish, the real America, which they’re hellbent on tearing asunder stands to flounder and fall.

See what I mean about crumbs?

The U.S. Extreme Court

Amy Coney Barrett, the U.S. Supreme Court judge… no, strike that… the U.S. Extreme Court judge, freshly installed by Mitch McConnell’s Republican dominated U.S. Senate, could sure use a refresher course re one of the most recognized, essential passages from the U.S. Constitution:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Founding Fathers • Bill of Rights • 1st Amendment • December 15, 1791

Barrett’s inability to recall the specific passage, re the people’s right “to petition the Government for a redress of grievances” was EITHER due to her anxiety OR her over-anxiousness to strike down that most fundamental of protections. Give her a listen.

One need not possess a sixth sense to know that puppeteer Donald J. Trump’s puppet will be adding her sixth voice to the majority opinion; her ruling that is certain to solidify her boss’s choke hold on civil liberties.

And, in the process, Amy Coney Barrett will be silencing Black Lives Matter protestors; as well as everybody else with legitimate grievances.

Those Who Don’t March In Lockstep To Be Locked Up?

 

Let’s keep this as brief as possible… 200 words or less. I spend considerable time ISO YouTube clips to corroborate and enhance my written content. I normally start with their homepage recommendations.

However, I’ve noticed… especially since Trump’s illegitimate Senate Impeachment Trial concluded… that the emboldened fake prez is directing his FOX network propaganda ministers to propagate increasingly disturbing content. No need to view this crap… the clips’ titles say it all. How so?

In essence, these freaking ideologues insist on locking up anyone not marching in lockstep with King Donald I.

Look, I’m a champion of the uniquely American freedom, which our Founding Fathers had secured for themselves and posterity AND support our troops, who, throughout our nation’s history, have so selflessly and courageously fought and died to preserve, protect and defend… on our behalf.

That’s why I’m completely appalled by how casually these broadcasting blowholes flip off dissent… the freedoms of speech and press… which are all core American values. It’s what America is all about.

To witness FOX traitors actually arguing on behalf of Fascist Trump… for the express purpose of promoting, preserving, protecting and defending his Fascist State is TREASON!

Can Election Day 2020 save America? Stay tuned…

All-Inclusive or All About Trump?

 

The “jury” still seems to be out re Donald Trump’s “Salute to America” speech, delivered at the Lincoln Memorial on July 4, 2019. The contentious issues:

[1] Did Trump’s politics trump patriotism?
[2] Was Trump’s speaking event all inclusive?
[3] Was Trump’s appearance all about Trump?

Trump’s problem actually transcends his speech’s content. The far bigger issue, here, is his image. While he’d blame the “fake news” for painting an unflattering portrait of him, to properly point his finger at who’s been harming him most, he need not go any farther than the nearest mirror. Now, that wouldn’t be asking too much from a shameless narcissist, right?

Let’s talk specifics… Trump owes his very rise to power to his becoming the embodiment of political extremism. He’s an unrepentant, beyond redemption, rabid, radical, right wing ideologue. As such, no amount of spin… be it backdated to July 4th… or dated today… or postdated throughout the rest of his tomorrows… can ever freshen up the stench wafting off his politics.

Beyond that… Donny simply does not understand the true meaning of patriotism. He actually believes that nobody can love America unless they love him unconditionally… unless they pledge undying, unquestioning loyalty to him. That’s a hell of a lot for a fallible mortal to ask of anyone!

Has public servant Trump ever read / fully understood the true intent of the 1st Amendment? That’s the 45 word count, Constitutional passage, which actually serves as the backbone to genuine patriotism. It’s stipulations clearly explain how, within a democracy, people must be able to freely (without fear of retribution) criticize public servants via the spoken / written word. And should such an approach ever prove insufficient, then it becomes…

“…the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Additionally… Trump’s own words and deeds (prior to and since the 4th) are what have caused him to lose his own case in the court of public opinion. In other words, he’s further proven himself the savagely political, party animal by actually selling tickets to his own speaking event. All that his deeply pocketed, elitist campaign contributors had to do was pony up hefty chunks of loot and then… come July 4th… they’d be promptly seated within an illegally cordoned off, VIP area at the LIncoln Memorial. That also meant that average Jane and Joe Americans were no longer welcome in this NORMALLY WIDE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC FORUM. Freedom to assemble? NOT! All-inclusive? Only if you’re one of Trump’s paying “customers”.

Final point… in the weeks to come, who doesn’t expect the fake prez to further politicize and exploit… to the max… his Salute to Himself speech. Donny’s TV crew will wind up splicing that raw, freebie footage (from this non-event) into soon to be unleashed, slick, alternate facts loaded, whitewashing campaign ads. All for the express purpose of morphing unpresidential, Brand-X Donny into a new and improved(?), more delectable(?), more electable(?) product!

Yecch! Yecch! Yecch! Yecch! Yecch!

Sooooo… on July 4, 2019…

[1] Did Trump’s politics trump patriotism? YES!
[2] Was Trump’s speaking event all inclusive? NO!
[3] Was Trump’s appearance all about Trump? YES!

 

 

 

Who Is He? / Who He Is! (One Quick Limerick #044)

 

He’s bankrupt of values and brimming with vanity,
He batters* less fortunate with inhumanity,
He’ll smooch alt-right / gun nut rump,
On free press / speech, He’ll take dump,
He suffers from ignorance and/or insanity.

 

* try subbing in the word “bullies”

 

A Poetic Acrostic (One Quick Limerick #028)

 

Observe Der Führer bleat / let his Tweets fly,

Frothed with news-speak, bald-faced lies, fierce outcry,

Un-invites / ousts lib press crews,

Calls their whole truths the “fake news”,

Key free speech / press rights he’ll condemn / defy!

OutFOXing the Free Press? (One Quick Limerick #025)

 

Kellyanne Conway spins yarns, tells HUGE fable,

The fact-based Free Press, she strives to disable,

Demands the press corps, concise,

Should all be FORCED to be nice,

Help her spread fake news the “prez” is smart/stable!
