Michael Lind posits on Salon.com that we are witnessing a conservative counter-culture not unlike the progressive revolution of the ’60s and ’70s.
My only question to him is: So when can we expect the assassinations of notable conservative leaders to begin?
Actually, you know what? Fuck that:
When do we get to lynch Republicans and beat them up at the polls? When do we get to target and murder pro-life activists for stepping into the wrong side of town? When do we get to beat heteros to within an inch of their lives on the fear that they might try to hit on people of the opposite gender? When do we get to make sure their revolution isn’t televised? When will white men get overlooked for management positions and get paid less than their distaff counterparts? When can we spray Tea Partiers with fire hoses and use live ammunition if they come in too large a number? When can we burn down megachurches? When will white men be racially profiled, stopped randomly and frisked on the off-chance they may be investment bankers? Can we now burn a giant Star of David on Pat Robertson’s lawn? When can we blacklist known members of the GOP from getting a loan or getting a job in certain industries? When will rednecks be barred from restaurants? When can we burn down rich neighborhoods while the cops and national guard protect the poor? When will having too many white people drive down a neighborhood’s value?
It’s so totally a legitimate counter-culture and not cynical astro-turf at all, what with all the anger and none of the persecution!
