You're An Asshole

Posted by The_Chef On 11:30 AM 1 comments

Today's entrant is a complete hack, a completely intellectually dishonest hack.

Behold! I present Markos Moulitsas, the founder
of the Daily Kos.

In his latest piece that is published in the San Fransisco Chronicle's Online arena, He equates the Radical Right with the Taliban. But here's the funny thing. He lumps in gun owners and anyone who thinks pop culture is complete joke. He also states that what these "radicals" are doing is sewing the seeds of violence. maybe he's right. I can't say for sure what the outcome of their actions will be. But since I'm in the business of making fun of both sides of the aisle, let's take a look at what Markos stands for. Let's see: Theft of property: Check. No right to resist any government action that he deems is right and just: Check. Economic Illiteracy: Check. Preventing people from freely practicing their ideals even at the exclusion of others: Check.

No Markos, you're a fascist, you just don't want to admit it. It's not that I like the religious right. It's not that I support people that think that we should let the Bible inform invasive domestic policy and regulation of lifestyles. It's the fact that not only does he paint with such a broad brush over gun owners, he doesn't even understand that he's encouraging people to make themselves servants and slaves to this monstrosity we call the state. Reminds me of this:
“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.” – Goethe
Yeah Markos, keep towing that empty headed line, attacking strawmen, and refusing to acknowledge that there is more than just a false Left-Right dichotomy in this country.

    For over a year the Daily Kos used fraudulent polls in which they used to legitimatize their political agenda. Amazing. KGO radio in San Francisco had this clown on and he came across as a "useless idiot."
