FW: Something of Historic Proportions is Happening

Read it. It is well worth your time.

Pam Geller

I am a student of history. Professionally, I have written 15 books in
six languages, and have studied history all my life. I think there is
something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is just a
banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes, these
exist but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only
now coming into a sharper focus.

Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it
because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people
react to it. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is
something happening within our country that has been evolving for about 10 - 15
years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two.

We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing
our economy. Why?

We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history,
and no longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and
why we are worth preserving. Students by and large cannot write, think
critically, read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting, teachers
are not picketing, school boards continue to back mediocrity. Why?

We have now established the precedent of protesting every close
election (now violently in California over a proposition that is so
controversial that it wants marriage to remain between one man and one
woman. Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago?). We
have corrupted our sacred political process by allowing unelected
judges to write laws that radically change our way of life, and then mainstream
Marxist groups like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a
banana republic. To what purpose?

Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free
fall, major industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge
of collapse, Social Security is nearly bankrupt, as is Medicare and our
entire government. Our education system is worse than a joke (I teach college
and know precisely what I am talking about.) The list is staggering in its
length, breadth, and depth. It is potentially 1929 x 10. And we are at
war with an enemy we cannot name for fear of offending people of the same
religion who cannot wait to slit the throats of your children if they
have the opportunity to do so.

And now we have elected a man no one knows anything about, who has
never run so much as a Dairy Queen, let alone a town as big as Wasilla
, Alaska . All of his associations and alliances are with real radicals
in their chosen fields of employment, and everything we learn about him,
drip by drip, is unsettling if not downright scary (Surely you have heard
him speak about his idea to create and fund a mandatory civilian defense
force stronger than our military for use inside our borders? No? Oh, of
course. The media would never play that for you over and over and then demand
he answer it. Sarah Palin's pregnant daughter and $150,000 wardrobe is
more important.)

I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as I am
now. This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has
never, ever done in his professional life. In my assessment, Obama will
divide us along philosophical lines, push us apart, and then try to
realign the pieces into a new and different power structure. Change is indeed
coming. And when it comes, you will never see the same nation again.

I thought I would never be able to experience what the ordinary, moral
German felt in the mid-1930s. In those times, the savior was a former
smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average
German knew next to nothing. What they did know was that he was associated
with groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they
disagreed; he edged his way onto the political stage through great
oratory and promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing jobs, and
he was a great speaker. And he smiled and waved a lot. And people, even
newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that his "brown shirts"
would bully them into submission.

And then he was duly elected to office, with a full-throttled economic
crisis at hand [the Great Depression]. Slowly but surely he seized the
controls of government power, department by department, person by
person, bureaucracy by bureaucracy. The kids joined a Youth Movement in his
name, where they were taught what to think. How did he get the people on his
side? He did it promising jobs to the jobless, money to the moneyless,
and goodies for the military-industrial complex. He did it by indoctrinating
the children, advocating gun control, health care for all, better wages,
better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride once again in the country,
across Europe , and across the world.

He did it with a compliant media - Did you know that? And he did this
all in the name of justice and..... change. And the people surely
got what they voted for. (Look it up if you think I am exaggerating.) Read
your history books. Many people objected in 1933 and were shouted down,
called names, laughed at, and made fun of. When Winston Churchill
pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the House of Lords in
England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and
called a crazy troublemaker. He was right, though ..

Don't forget that Germany was the most educated, cultured country in
Europe .. It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories,
and universities. And in less than six years - a shorter time span than
just two terms of the U. S. presidency - it was rounding up its own
citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents,
and neighbors against neighbors. All with the best of intentions, of
course. The road to Hell is paved with them.

About the author via Google...

Pamela "Atlas" Geller began her publishing career at The New York
Daily News and subsequently took over operation of The New York
Observer as Associate Publisher. She left The Observer after the birth of her
fourth child but remained involved in various projects including American
Associates, Ben Gurion University and being Senior Vice-President
Strategic Planning and Performance Evaluation at The Brandeis School .

Since many of you enjoy senior citizen status or will sometime in the not too distant future, I thought you might be interested in this information.


Everybody that is on this mailing list is either a senior citizen, is getting close or knows sombody that is.

Most of you know by now that the Senate version (at least) of the "stimulus" bill includes provisions for extensive rationing of health care for senior citizens. The author of this part of the bill, former senator and tax evader, Tom Daschle was credited today by Bloomberg with the following statement:

Bloomberg: "Daschle says health-care reform [UTF-8?] will not be pain [UTF-8?]free. Seniors should be more accepting of the conditions that come with age instead of treating them."

If this does not sufficiently raise your ire, just remember that Senators and Congressmen have their own healthcare plan that is first dollar or very low co-pay which they are guaranteed the remainder of their lives and are not subject to this new law if it passes.

Please use the power of the internet to get this message out. Talk it up at the grassroots level. We have an election coming up in one year and nine months. We have the ability to address and reverse the dangerous direction the Obama administration and it allies have begun and in the interim, we can make our voices heard! Lets do it!

If you disagree, don't do anything.

If you disagree, don't do anything.Sure, we love to take orders from complete idiots. Instead, what I do is remind myself to donate another $10 to the campaign of whoever runs against crazy wingnut Michele Bachmann in the next election.

Interesting that a right wing holocaust denier is suddenly comparing BHO to Hitler, and once again with the: Nobama hasn't ever done anything in his life, and we know nothing about him meme. Guess I'll just (Atlas) shrug over that one.

I actually agree with the first several paragraphs of this rant: yes, the financial industry was totally deregulated & look at the disaster, and yes, Democrats & Indepents are culpable in this mess, but it was mainly pushed by our military-industrial complex w/ the connivance of the republicans (who made out like the bandits they are).

And yes, our schools are in a mess (I say this knowledgeably bc I have many friends and family members who are K - 12 teachers or admin) and have been severely dumbded down. But who wanted that? Not the Democrats. It was the Republicans (who have enough money to send their kids to private schools & also want socialist vouchers to help underwrite their expenses) and Libertarians (who don't any gov't at all).

Then again with the Marxist ACORN that is allegedly the root of all evil, as in: it is a community organizing group that, amongst other things, strives to ensure the enfranchisement of all citizens, esp those of brown skin color.... TEH HORROR!!!!!

Of course, it is axiomatic that this woman is likely quite the bigot given that she denies the Holocaust (and no doubt blames the Jews here for lots of evilness, too). Ugh.

Then with the Tom Daschle is stealing money from seniors myth, which has been thoroughly debunked but is another right wing dog whistle to rile up FEAR amongst seniors (I should know. I currently have a giant STACK of mail that I took away from my elderly mother, and much of it is this kind of b.s. fear mongering, whereby right wing rip-off organizations are asking my mother to donate to their "worthy" cause. when I investigate, 100% of these groups are rip offs who would walk all over their own grandmothers if it meant they'd make a quick buck).

This woman IS like Michelle Bachman and Bible Spice. Shilling for her own "cause" whatever that might be.... mostly to make money.

Getting mightily fed up with this nonsense, but I agree w/ the first post: donate as much money as possible to whomever runs against Michelle Bachman in the next election. I donated a lot to Elwin Tinklenberg the last time and am sorry he lost.

I have written 15 books in
six languages,
Barbara Cartland wrote a shit-heap of books too, and I think I'd prefer to trust any one of them on the subject of politics (there must be one in that towering mountain involving a rich sheik or something) than someone like Ms. Geller here. Who is, if you're hungry for more of her wittering, regularly mocked on www.sadlyno.com.

Reaction #1: Yeah, yeah, you're smart, we get it. Don't break you arm patting yourself on the back too hard.

Reaction #2: We've "de-industrialized" our economy because it turns out third-world countries provide much cheaper factory labor. America can't stay competitive unless we build a larger white-collar workforce.

Reaction #3: Yeah, yeah "kids these days" suck. Funny how every single generation thinks "kids these days" are a problem. Socrates had a nice long rant on the subject of "kids these days".

Reaction #4: Obama Whargarbl. Must... resist... urge to skim...

Reaction #5: Hitler? Oookay, back away from the email slowly...

Wait...isn't this just a rehash of the same old "ohai i haz rited many buks. I can haz ur attenshun nao?" e-mails that have been circulating for months?

Snarla said...

"I have written fifteen books in six languages..." isn't that the exact same thing that other poser said in the other right-wing forward? Let's see, who was it? Pat Dollard. See "Fwd: PROPHESY OR DE JA VU?" Same forward, different name, and in both cases it's a mental midget being portrayed as an intellectual.
Someone please teach the gullible how to use Google!

Anonymous said...

To Snarla: good catch. I thought that sounded familiar (really), but I was too lazy to check it out. Thanks!

"... in both cases it's a mental midget being portrayed as an intellectual."

In all cases of these RWF's, it seems that those who are forwarding these epic FAILS, as well as those receiving the forwards (at least, those who like & agree w/them) are also mental midgets who think they are are vast great intellectuals.

See also: Bible Spice, also, too, you betcha, wink wink...

Ms. Pamela's blog, Atlas Shrugged, is one of the more widely lampooned on the Internet. Folks not familiar with her work are missing a real treat. The woman is a raving lunatic. In a pre-wired world, she'd be standing on a corner shouting at passersby. Thanks to the Internet, however, she can reach thousands of like-minded dingbats who mutually reinforce their delusions.

Colleen said...

The things that are wrong with this email are so disparate that you'd have to go through line by line, even before you get to the Godwin's Law part, so I'll just laugh at the part here she thinks she can keep people hyped up and angry for almost two years.

I'm guessing English is her 7th (and worst) language?

BrianX said...

Potato Head:

Actually, have you ever actually seen the woman? She'd be either the older chick that nobody will talk to at the strip club, or third-string MILF-porn talent. Considering the combination of marginally good looks and sheer raving lunacy, I highly doubt she'd be suitable for any career outside of sex work, and even then she wouldn't make many friends among the more normal colleagues. (I don't see the Bunny Ranch hiring her, for example -- she'd scare away the regulars.)

Anonymous said...

BrianX: thanks for the description... she really sounds like Michele Bachmann & the Bible Grifter now (see original post)! ha!

Based on that alone, I may have to check her out for laffs...
