As of late the Republican side of my family (my mother's side minus my mother and a few select relatives) has been at odds with well frankly the rest of my family minus my father's oldest sister, her husband, and his youngest sister and her husband. Not these two sides interact much any more, divorce thing yadda, yadda. Anyway, lately there have been three MAJOR blow ups between my mother, brother and myself VS. my grandmother and two aunts. These healthy political debates start off friendly enough but then quickly degenerate into the liberals (my mother, brother and I) being told we are brainwashed, confused, idiots who and I DIRECTLY quote from my grandmother here: "Have a warped view of the facts." Of the facts.....warped view of the facts?! Moving on, the latest comment has been made by my mother's oldest sister today has made my head spin and frankly makes me want to tear my hair out. I had posted a picture of Mitt Romney disembarking a plane in front of Donald Trump's GIANT FREAKING JET and captioned it with: "Yuck. for lack of a better word." Her comment to this photograph: "You want socialism or fascism? Then vote for Obama again." The jaw dropping idiocy of this statement astounds me, this is coming from (or so I thought) a very educated, well read, very nice and kind person but WHAT THE FUCK?! Let's break down this statement shall we? First we will cover the 'vote for Obama again' bit, which in of itself is a highly condescending thing to say, nor have I actually said I voted for Obama the first time. (I did, and I will again but for argument's sake we'll ignore that for now) Second, we shall cover socialism. This is frankly not an entirely bad thing, the Marxist view of it is of course a bit further than it should really go. I believe we could use a HELL of a lot more socialism around here, more libraries, better roads, and I don't know perhaps UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE?! Thirdly we shall deal with the most asinine and insane thing about the entire bloody comment. Fascism. Miriam-Webster Dictionary has the following definition: a political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.
So I ask you, how the hell is Obama a fascist? Oh right, I'm sorry I forgot. Our "President" is a Marxist, socialist, reverse raciest, liberal, Nazi, Saul Aleniski-loving, Muslim, Kenyan. Forgive me how could I have possibly forgotten. Excuse me while I beat my brain-washed mind against the wall as part of my re-education program and then maybe I'll be retarded enough to watch and buy into what Fox News is selling without wanting to kill myself. Then I can stand idley by and watch Mitt Romney take the White House and enjoy the wieghless feeling of fall into the black hole of awfulness that will make eight years of the Bush Adminstration feel like a week long vacation with Jack and The Gang from Lost on thier freaking island of death and madness and time travel. Then if Romney gets a second term I'll grow a creepy beard starting drinking all the time and popping pills and crying and trying to jump off a bridge in an attempt to return to the damn island where things made sense! WE HAVE TO GO BACK!
