Relevant Introspect?

Subject: Re: Relevant Introspect?
I used to think I was just a regular guy, but I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a  racist.
I am a fiscal  and moral conservative, which by today's standards, makes me a fascist.   
I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobe.
I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business.
I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel.

I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which now makes me a member of the vast gun lobby.
I am older than 70 and retired, which makes me a useless old man.
I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary.
I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe.
I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist.
I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual's merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.
I (and most of the folks I know), acquired a fair education without student loans (its called work) and no debt at graduation, which makes me some kind of an odd underachiever.
I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens and I honor those who served in the Armed Forces, which now makes me a militant.
Please help me come to terms with the new me… because I'm just not sure who I am anymore!   I would like to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, new found changes in my life and my thinking! I just can't imagine or understand what's happened to me so quickly! Funny …its all just taken place over the last 7 or 8 years!
As if all this nonsense wasn’t enough to deal with… I’m now afraid to go into either restroom!

Well, RWD is delusional on most of these, but he's right about the non-union one. Congrats, RWD! Even a stopped-clock, etc.

I'll clear it up for you, RWD - what you are is ignorant and poorly informed.

Glad to help.

He forgot one:

"I'm an idiot with a major persecution complex, which makes me write stupid lists like this."

What a bunch of whining victimization that clearly & deliberately mis-characterizes what's going on. But this is an excellent example of the unending stream of rightwing propaganda that's been shoved down RWD's throat for 3+ decades now. No wonder he's confused. And if he just reads things like Conservative Viewpoint, this is the tripe he's fed.

Just to take one of these conservative talking points:

I (and most of the folks I know), acquired a fair education without student loans (its called work) and no debt at graduation, which makes me some kind of an odd underachiever.

RWD already admitted he's over 70. I guess as soon as he completed his education - which back in the 50s, 60s, and into the 70s, was VERY cheap (and sometimes free) - RWD chose to shut his eyes, plug up his ears and refuse to stay abreast of what's been happening with US education since then. Not that there isn't ample evidence of the excessively high costs of tertiary education, even if you go to community college and state universities.

Nah. RWD listens faithfully to Rush Limbaugh, goes to his Family/Fellowship-trained "Christiany" church and watches Fox 24/7/365. RWD got HIS, so EFF everyone else including his own grandchildren.

The ignorance displayed in this nasty diatribe highlights clearly the deliberate efforts at divide and conquer so cleverly played by the Oligarchs. Pitting RWD against everyone, including his grandkids, who don't hold the exact views that Rush Limbaugh demands that he hold.

Color me unsurprised.

"Pitting RWD against everyone, including his grandkids"

That's one of the most virulent aspects of rightwing propaganda.

Hardly, RWD. Your victimizing attitudes have been carefully and expensively crafted over the past 30 years or more of deliberate rightwing propaganda. Even your attitude of blaming Obama for every thing that you've been taught that you allegedly "don't like" is all part of the rightwing propaganda machine.

Turn off your tv & radio, attend a different church and work your way towards thinking for yourself. You might enjoy life a little more, rather than permitting yourself to be so consistently negative, fearful and feeling powerless.

That could have come from my very own RWD, especially when he drinks and types garrulous garbage.

I've seen these rants for years: They keep ricocheting back and forth between whiney victimhood/lament of the erosion of their influence and chest beating of how they're "going to take their country back" to the 1950s, albeit without of the top tax rate of 91 percent and strong organized labor. Oh, and they want to be able to take their smart phones with them when they go back.
