The Republican Governors Association has produced an anti-government ad attacking President Barack Obama which would make Leni Riefenstahl blush. The ad appears on a site called RememberNovember.com– a not-so-veiled shout-out to the Guy Fawkes story glorifying domestic political terrorism… no doubt in the hopes to inspire the next Timothy McVeigh.
They RGA is trying to attract people to their website so they are not allowing others to embed the propaganda piece, but you can watch it here at the Huffington Post. Positioning themselves for the sake of their “average Joe” dupes as flag waving patriots, the RGA website features pictures of Barack Obama looking all “uppity” and “elitist” as well as quotes like this: “Remember November so that we can return America to its founding principles of freedom, personal responsibility and economic liberty. We Remember November so we, our children, and grandchildren can live with the freedoms our founding fathers intended.”
Here are some images from the ad with some RDT commentary:
Of course, Republicans would love to convince normal people that they have the true heart of the Founders with their “let them eat cake” attitude towards anyone who wasn’t born to lay around a swimming pool waiting for a dividend check to arrive. Regardless of history or reality – that even George Washington hoped that America would always be a beacon of liberality to the world – and that the majority of the founding fathers were inspired by the liberal Enlightenment – a progressive movement which challenged the historical “natural” order of class structure, wealth and governance – the makers of the ad are confident in their 30-year assault on the American education system to know that the audience they are attempting to reach will not let facts get in the way of their manias, prejudices or fears.
What do you expect them to do? The Republican Party has absolutely nothing to offer 95% of the population. Until the day comes when they have completely dismantled our democratic system and returned the government solely to the upper class, they must try any angle to convince dupes to vote for policies that, if seen to fruition, will end the American middle class once and for all. To this end, Republicans and their historical metaphorical heirs – (loyalists/landed gentry…. ) have been on a mission to usher in a new age of ne0-feudalism/fascism – ALWAYS in the name of mom, the flag, and apple pie.
Their pattern is clear to anyone with a History 101 grasp on reality – fan the flames of Anti-government sentiment when not in the majority and tell your mouth-breathing dupes who want to meet you for a beer that their “freedoms” are under attack. Of course, the Republican definition of “freedom” actually means “indentured servitude to their transnational corporations.” Anything less than that is an assault on your liberty – liberty… that is… to be treated solely as a host from which rapacious corporations can suck profits. Ahh!! Is that freedom I smell, or rotting corpses of those who died because it was more profitable to settle a lawsuit than it was not to kill them?
Having no real agenda but to stop the middle class from getting too non-complaint, the ad seeks to mask the true Republican, pro-corporate, anti-worker, anti-democratic agenda actually as a defense against fascism. Ironically, many notable American political analysts from Sinclair Lewis to Huey Long predicted this scheme.
So…in other words… the people who have turned the middle class into economically insecure Serfs who must work 3 “uniquely American” non-union jobs to pay off their indentured servitude to the banks… have shipped our manufacturing base to China, have wiped their collective upper-class arse with the Constitution and… with no allegiance to country or community… have made the United States the LEAST upwardly mobile of all industrialized countries while blanketing the fruited plain with incessant pro-corporate propaganda with the sole intent to mobilize the huddled masses against themselves … THAT bunch of greed-centered sociopaths are protecting us against the “Tyranny” of our legally-elected government!?
These are fascists in the truest sense. They are traitorous bastards who HATE “We The People.” They hate the Constitution and will do anything to get their boney fingers around the neck of power so they can continue to rally ignorant useful idiots against the only institution strong enough to get the rapacious corporations off their aching back and regulate their gluttony in the name of the common good. In the least, the Republicans agenda is to return America to the Gilded Age system, when big business owned Congress outright, and the country was run directly for their benefit. Period.
Just like the “Business Plot” against FDR – they will stop at nothing to take power out of the hands of the people and continue our plunge into compliant Serfdom.
Like FDR said, “They had begun to consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs. We know now that Government by organized money is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob.”
