The Regime Isn't So Bad or Chaos at Kos
I've been drawn to some threads and discussions on Iran and when I'm not laughing, I'm in a state of disbelief that these people really believe this stuff they're writing.
All the World is a Conspiracy
Conspiracy theories seem to be the main glue holding things together at Kos. Well, that and Left-wing politics.
They’ve got a conspiracy theory for everything. In fact, someone was telling me about a statue or bust of President Bush that has become a topic of conversation among the Leftists , because it has a plaque with the date and year his presidency began, but the date of his presidency ending is left blank to be filled in later. Well, don’t you know what that means? At the Kos, it means that Bush is going to try to extend his presidency beyond his legal 8 years! I kid you not! The idea that it was left blank in case he should become incapacitated or heaven forbid, die, or resign or gets impeached (hey, that one ought to be in the front of their minds seeing as how some of their heroes are pushing for impeachment all the time) apparently went right over their heads.
Why go for the obvious when you can get a good conspiracy theory going?
Anyway, the main focus at the Kos regarding Iran, comes down to one main conspiracy theory: the White House wants to start a war in Iran and anything that is said or done with respect to Iran, is for that ultimate purpose. Never mind that the U.N. is involved, and we basically turned things over to the EU to try to work things out, they’re convinced that this President wants to invade Iran, and nothing is going to stop him. Well, not quite. The Leftists are going to try to stop him, by revealing Bush’s grand scheme of going to war in Iran to everyone else in the country.
Why does he want to start a war in Iran? I’m not sure, but I’ll hazard a guess they think it has something to do with the President’s plans to steal Iran’s oil and make all his oil buddy friends even richer than they are. They probably think he likes wars, too. Maybe you have some other ideas why they’re so convinced that Bush is salivating to go to war.
So, how is President Bush going to make the case to the American people for going to war? Drum roll please……………………………
He’s going to demonize the Iranian gov’t.
That’s right. He’s doing it now. He’s out there talking about how bad the Iranian regime is. And not only is he doing it himself, (along with all of his Neocon agents), he’s getting the media to do it too! Yes, the media is helping President Bush to scare the American people. In fact, the media has been scaring the American people into supporting the war. I’ll bet you didn’t know that! Who woulda thunk the media was helping Bush?!
That’s right. Those wonderful murdering mullahs known for hanging people from cranes, stoning women to death, whipping children tied to poles for having dared to attend a mixed boy/girl birthday party, and countless other depraved and satanic acts, need to be demonized by the White House. After all, the mullahs’ actions over the past 27 years aren’t demonic enough for the average person to have figured out that they are evil incarnate.
And what about Ahmadinejad? Isn’t the hate speech coming from his mouth bad enough? No. Apparently, there’s room for some to think that he might be an okay guy, so the White House has to demonize him also.
So, now you know. The secret is out.
Be prepared to hear lots of bad stuff about life in Iran because the White House and Bush’s minions are going to be out there telling you lies and exaggerating about the suffering endured by Iranians for the past 27 years, so that he can make a case for war.
After all, things really aren’t so bad in Iran.
According to the Left, life in Iran is better than here, because there’s a higher literacy rate, the health care is better and statistically there are fewer people in jail compared to the U.S.
[how the people on Kos know these things and have the numbers to back up these claims is a mystery. For one thing, the regime has never published or revealed the true number of prisoners in Iran]
And gas is cheap. Can’t forget that.
Oh, and if you happen to hear about the oppression and suffering of the Iranian people from an actual Iranian person on the TV, who is here in the U.S., or maybe even in Europe, that person is a White House shill. Yup. That’s the word from the Daily Kos.
Any Iranian dissident who appears on TV or radio or in the print media who is calling for regime change in Iran, is a White House ‘plant’ and probably his/her story and background information is fiction. Nevermind that its been documented by human rights groups. They can’t be trusted either. (yes, this is all being said at Kos)
BTW – Right-wing conservatives are referred to by the Left, as “wingnuts”. I find this term inoffensive and rather cute.
Actually, if you look at what a “wing nut” is and its purpose, its function is to fasten and hold objects together. Without it, the object would fall apart. That sounds like an accurate description of what the conservatives’ function is in this country. So I don’t mind the term “wingnut”, because without us to stabilize things and hold the country together, the screwy Left would cause the country to fall apart.
Everything I’ve written about the views and opinions of the Left, I got directly from comments on dailykos.com website. I refuse to link to them, but you can check it out yourself.
They’re absolutely bonkers and it does make for entertaining reading.
All I can say is, I’m glad I’m a “wing nut” and I hope there are enough “wingnuts” out there to hold things together and keep this country from falling apart. Right now, I have some doubts.
As for Iran, the White House needs to be putting all its efforts into supporting the Iranian people and helping them to bring down this regime. The demise of the regime is the key to fighting terrorism and having peace in the Middle East. Not to mention freeing the Iranian people from the tyranny they've lived under since 1979.
