I'm getting scared again...

Jeff has this to say about the new breed of Republican:
In '72, mean-spirited Republicans would most definately rip your McGovern sticker off of your bumper. All right, okay... just put on a new one.

But today, Bush supporters are a different breed. They're not simply "mean-spirited", there are scores of them who are "Nazi-like" in their zealous support of him.

These SS men read a Kerry/Edwards bumper sticker as a bullseye. To these storm troopers, YOU ARE THE ENEMY!

I don't think there's anything Nazi about them. They are just I dunno, extra aggressive. Thats all. Speaking of Politics. 1 major doubt. IS HOWARD THE ONLY CANDIDATE FOR PM IN AUSTRALIA?? seriously. 4 straight terms.

Jeff, don't be flattered by the praise of an idiot.

R.H., I apologise for apologising.

Oh dear, the R.H. stuff belonged somewhere else. Sorry. Now back to the plot...

Hobbes, I agree with Jeff that when, in the political process, physical violence manifests itself as a means of intimidation of political opponents, that this indeed is reminiscent of the Nazis in Germany circa 1930. I think it's a valid comparison.

However, over at Jeff's blog, it's now emerging that both sides are getting down and getting dirty. So, it seems pots are calling kettles black. I't easy for me, I've already said that there'll be not much difference whichever side wins.

Both sides will continue with the American supremacy agenda at the expense of those America exploits in the name of "freedom" and "democracy", America's Big Lie.
Which of course is another comparison with the Nazis.

We old fossils just can't help ourselves, eh, Hobbes? ;-)

Hobbes, you asked "IS HOWARD THE ONLY CANDIDATE FOR PM IN AUSTRALIA??"

I don't know how to answer that. For me he is not a candidat at all. But it seems that those voters who keep returning him to office prefer him to the alternatives.

What I thing of those voters is not printable.

However, for me there are two greater disasters to worry about:

1) That Labor and the Democrats, using their allocation of preferences, made sure that the Greens did not get the balance of power in the Senate, thus handing abolute power to Howard.

2) The other disaster is America's globalisation (foreign) policy.

Gerry... I think that hit the nail right on its' ugly head when you point out that the Nazi party started much in the same fashion of political intimidation that Bush's SS boys are now. No, these bands of roving intimidators do not wear brown uniforms (yet), but their tactics seem far too similar to that era in Germany.

If you think that's bad. I have heard things about Republicans crashing into DNC headquarters all around the country, even firing guns into the headquarters. They are hand delivering other people's absentee ballots in Florida and trying to register homeless people to vote. (the real reason is so the can cast the vote for them.)

Wait, my bad, it's the Democrats who are guilty of all those things.

Yes, Jeff, but the ugliness is on both sides. This indicates to me that there is a drift to towards extremism.

The only difference between the extreme Right and the extreme Left is in the way they manage society. Both are totalitarian.

In fact extreme religion is totalitarian. Extreme atheism is also totalitarian.

It indicates a mounting intolerance for others' political, religious and/or philosophical viewpoints. It's a lurch away from post-modernism back towards absolutism. And it's scary as hell...

Jeffrey, the firing of guns at Bush headquarters is totally news to me. On one occasion, in Orlando, the G.O.P. blew up an incident that was caught on tape when some pro-Kerry folks, first, demonstrated outside of the Bush HQ and then, some of them went inside to protest. The tape CLEARLY shows that ONE young, male Bush volunteer was brushed aside or caught slightly off-balance, but didn't fall. Republican later called this an "assult."

While I have said repeatedly that I do not condone these kind of actions, understand that both parties are going to play up these incidents as "major attacks."

In the Orlando, Florida area, the vandalism that has been reported has been one-sided and it's been pro-Busher's committing the crimes. The G.O.P. (locally or nationally) has had weeks to either deny these attacks or counter with examples of their own victimizations. They haven't.

Jeff, I've been meaning to ask someone what the initials G.O.P. actually stands for. I'm an ignorant Australian and I don't know. Please forgive...

All right, Gerry... I'll tell you what G.O.P. stands for but before I do, prepare yourself... sit down or else you might fall down... laughing. G.O.P. stands for "Grand Old Party."

Okay, don't say I didn't warn you!

Gerry, my twelve year old nephew... I kid with. You and my fellow bloggers, no. I tell you the truth.

Ok, so let's see if I understand American Politics 101:

The G.O.B. vot for the G.O.P. Right?

*blech*

The state of American politics is very depressing.

October 19, 2004 1:42 PM  
Blogger Gerry said...

Yep.

October 19, 2004 1:56 PM  
Blogger Jeff said...

Yep!

Oh, and Gerry, of course the "good old boys" vote for the G.O.P.

Calling someone in the south a G.O.B. is a term that was initially used to be an indentifying (wink) "secret" way of saying someone was with the KKK.
