On a lazy Sunday afternoon I decided to stroll through the Barnes and Noble up the street from my house and peruse through their current affairs section. As I looked at the shelves it struck; just how paranoid and out of touch with reality conservatives have become. I’m used to seeing flaming rhetoric on either side of the aisle but this was ridiculous. Its as if Rush Limbaugh was holding a garage sale and I had inadvertently stumbled smack dab into the middle of it.
Don’t believe me? Here are a few examples:
Obama Zombies: How the Liberal Machine Brainwashed My Generation
The Manchurian President: Barack Obama’s Ties to Communists, Socialists and Other Anti-American Extremists
The Blueprint: Obama’s Plan to Subvert the Constitution and Build an Imperial Presidency
Power Grab: How Obama’s Green Policies Will Steal Your Freedom and Bankrupt America
How The Obama Administration Threatens Our National Security
And the list goes on.
Its like Sarah Palin was selling off her collection of books after ironically remembering that she didn’t know how to read.
It amazes me how much so called conservative “intellectualism”/ “populism” really boils down to a fanatical obsession with blaming other people for all of the problems in their life. (HA! Personal responsibility my ass.). I wonder, if the government is so oppressive why don’t conservatives just use their guns to fight the tyranny? Oh wait, probably because that’s a stupid idea.
If only they could learn…
