Kicking It Up a Notch

We’ve joked that the right-wing loves to play the victim, but our lady of perpetual outrage has kicked it up a notch and is now engaging in what can only be described as preemptive victimhood:

“Get ready for the anti-Tea Party sabotage and smear campaign”

For the next 9 days, the left-wing blogosphere and left-wing clueless pundits will hammer away with their unreality-based Tea Party smears.

And on the ground, the tax-subsidized and Soros-subsidized troops are going to try and wreak havoc every way they can. Many readers and fellow bloggers have seen signs that ACORN may send in ringers and saboteurs to usurp the anti-tax, anti-reckless spending, anti-bailout message.

ACORN and Soros plotting to usurp the anti-tax message. All you can do is laugh.

    They’re going to pay attention to us, dammit. And when they do, expect nothing but negative attention. Expect to be vilified and crucified and hated and mocked. Because that’s when you know you’re absolutely right.

    Don’t worry, my brave little Army of Davids. There’s one thing they won’t factor in, one thing they always forget when they pay attention to us. They don’t surround us. WE SURROUND THEM!

    Pay attention to us, dammit!

    Does anyone think "Soros sponsored" is "weak tea" (pun intended) as a smear? I know asking them to understand their own hypocrisy (Scaife, Moon, Adelson) is too much, but who gives a crap that some rich guy named Soros gives some money to liberal people to write (which, of course, isn’t even true for most of the people Malkin is talking about).

    I will quote the great philosopher Cheney, and say what we’re seeing here from the right-wing blogosphere is "death throes".

    at the Denver anti-porkulus rally last month, when the Media Matters/Daily Kos crowd shifted media attention away from the policy message by manufacturing fake outrage about some stunt-puller who showed up with a sign comparing Obama to Hitler that I didn’t see and asked for a picture

    Because nobody in the Limbaugh/Malkin/Coulter/Beck axis has compared Obama to Hitler.

    i realize this is highly redundant, but just knowing there are enough mentally sick people out there to keep a broad like this in business makes me sad for America. These aren’t the type of people who would consider treatment since they have no ability to self-reflect, but they need serious help. I long considered Malkin types to be media opportunists, pure and simple, but I’ve kinda changed my mind about that and believe most of them need to be institutionalized. I’d be happy to subsidize that since we need to get dangerously delusional people of influence like this out of circulation.

    I do love the pre-emptive "Our revolution didn’t fail, it was sabotaged". Yes, sabotaged by having it conceived and run by morans (sic) .

    @smiley: I should have added that all of those locations make some sense to me except Atlanta. Georgia is a very conservative state but Atlanta is much more liberal than the rest of the state. The Alamo site is particularly rich because, on the one hand, it symbolizes the besieged attitude of the right while at the same time, it belies Beck’s "we surround them" catch phrase because, you know, the Mexican army literally surrounded the Alamo on their way to slaughtering everyone inside.

    SnarkyShark says:

    I am starting to get the sense Malkin and her ilk know the jig is up. The fantasy world is unsustainable because is is/will become too much work. Authoritarians are in equal parts mentally diseased/intellectually lazy. Beck is the Messiah for the crazies, Rush for the lazy.

    While the Beck crowd will form the Tim McVeigh Black Helicopter brigades and continue to self immolate in little bursts of random gunfire, the other half will tire and lose focus.

    The whole reason to outsource their critical thinking skills to the Oxy King(tm) waz because it waz easy. Trying to keep up with the plot, secret handshakes, and ever changing code word cheat sheet is getting hard.

    They will lose interest, and resort to what they love best. Whiny victim-hood and hatred of DFHs. The only way Malkin and Co. can keep the fantasy world going is to appeal to some grandiose over the top plot where it is all going down now. And that cow can’t be milked much longer.

    Unfortunately that will push a lot of the nuts way over the edge, but what can you do?

    Of course the playbook says you have to preventativly cover your ass in this regard and the playbook must be followed.
