Stepford Becomes Pottersville, slight return


Brilliant at Breakfast reader Rob Bush made a great over-the-shoulder catch. He says, "Make sure you watch the Ahmedinijad segment closely to see the subliminal flash of Obama in there.

Right around the 0:39 mark."

Specifically, it's 41 seconds in but he's absolutely right. First you see Ahmedinejad, then a subliminal flash of Obama before it goes back to Ahmedinejad. Check the time stamps of the two screengrabs if you don't believe me.


The intent of this is so obvious, a fifth grader can see it. By implanting a subliminal image of the president in our minds, Santorum's propagandists are going the Sarah Palin route and "suggesting" that our Christian Protestant president is actually a Muslim.

There's no end to the desperation to which Republicans will spelunk in order to scare and startle votes out of people, to so cynically use right wing Islamophobia that got ramped up to epic levels after 9/11. It's this kind of radical Christian, apocalyptic Islamophobia that brings to mind the Inquisition, the Crusades, the reign of terror of Savonarola.

This is the new America, people. And this is how deluded Rick Santorum is: It's not even as if he wants, like Reagan, to transform America into Pleasantville. He actually thinks America is Pleasantville and is trying to turn President Obama into a Muslim secret agent by resorting to subliminal imagery to keep our multicultural country Biblical, black and white and Brycreemed.

And this pint-sized Billy Sunday is Willard's chief rival, people, the guy who won Louisiana last night.

I suppose an Obama Superpac could make a propaganda piece (if he does become The R-candidate) with a subliminal of the Pope over Santorum's face- that should play well with all his hard core evangelist, born agains.

I watched that shit via a link from somewhere else a few days ago. Nice production values. What the hell is the evidence supposed to be, though? Oooh, Obama scary!

Why not just make a video intimating that Obama is Gozer the Gozerian in human form, as The General has stated on his satire blog? The trouble with these right-wing fuckwits is that they don't need evidence to support their fears. They might not even know why they fear what they fear. It's just that one of their own faction is not in power, and their Pavlovian masters are blowing into the dog whistle that says "Piss on the rug because you're so scared!"

(Did you ever have a dog that did that? Me and the ex-wife used to, a Jack Russell terrier that we adopted after it had been abused. Look at it crossways and there would be a puddle. Poor dog. It was always on the edge of terror.)

Anyway, with all the things to REALLY attack President Zero for, like assassinating American citizens without any trial, or giving billions to rich corporations, and allowing polluters like BP or banking criminals to get away scot-free, the reich wing doesn't do any of that. Because that shit is what they agree with. And when Obama goes up against Rombot v2.012, I bet he doesn't bash Mittwit with any of his job-raping vulture capitalist past. Because that's shit that Obama's money-men support.

Robama vs. Obamney. The candidate of the 1% vs. the candidate of the 1%. Like 2004 with two Skull 'n' Bones guys duking (allegedly) it out. When I heard the conspiracy theories that Kerry was in the tank and on the take, I couldn't believe it. Now I do.

Fuck all that shit. America is dead. It's a walking zombie. The only question is, does a zombie-killer take it out with a head shot, or does it just putrefy and collapse of its own rottenness?

Damn, Bukko, you do get it, don't you? I could've written this comment myself.

CR, didn't you get the email I sent you a few days ago? If not, email me back.

Damn, Bukko, you do get it, don't you? I could've written this comment myself.

Well I ought to by now. How many years have I been reading you, anyway? I just wish I could write like the Rude Pundit.

Nobody can, except for me when the mood strikes me. Which is why you ought to write as you. Which is why you should blog. Like I've been after you to do for years.

I'm just not serious enough, JP. No stamina for consistent blogging, just for gadflying with comments. I'm like a guy who can fuck real good for 2 minutes, then shoots his wad. Plus I regard blogging as ultimately meaningless. It's good to gather around the glowing electronic campfire with the other ghosts in the machine, jabbering at each other, hopefully with words of comfort back and forth. But in the end, this is just fever dreams of illusory meaning, a mirage of flickering consciousnesses like the shadows on Plato's cave wall...
