Graffiti in Seoul

“The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter.” - Winston Churchill

I love you Winston, but gee-golly, that’s a pessimistic outlook.

This Just in: Santa Cruz “Anarchists” Get Stupider!

From reading Indybay Santa Cruz recently, I gather that “anarchist” related vandalism is on the rise in the costal college town. With ATMs being smashed, independent eco-friendly shops getting their windows broken, and now church stained glass pelted, the sad state of affairs amongst the left in the Monterey Bay keeps hitting newer and stupider lows. Here are just a few things these fools had to say about their “revolutionary actions.”
“And how great it felt to hear the giant plate glass shatter along with the illusion that commerce is invulnerable to our attacks. It was so easy it makes us giddy to think that such an act is infinitely reproducible. Not an hour out of our lives was wasted.” – Inspired Anarchist
Idiot. I would like to be part of this “infinitely reproducible” act and smash all this kids Crass records. Revolution dude!
“This summer will see broken ATM screens and bank windows across Santa Cruz, the West Coast, Europe, and the Americas. Perhaps you will be one of those smashing them, on your own or with a few close friends. When the bank forecloses your house, evicts you from your apartment, takes the last money you need for food, what will you do? What will you do when a wild place you love is destroyed by those the bank supports, or by the University of California? What will you do when a friend or loved one, or anyone you identify with, is locked up in jail? What will you do?” - an act of revolutionary solidarity
Moron. What will I do when one of my loved ones is locked in jail? Well, I would probably go get a bail bond. So over to the ATM I go….oh wait, the machine is all fucked up! Damn you holier-than-thou anarchists!
“We killed God a long time ago, and last night started demolishing His Churches and Temples, which have committed the unforgivable sin of existing in the first place.

We want to destroy every pillar of civilization: indoctrination, morality, religion, Law, Authority, obedience, herd mentality, mass opiates and collective suicide. We are not sheep, we are werewolves!”
- Nihilist Vengeance
Turd-sandwich. Werewolves? Come on now…..really? And why can’t a werewolf also attend church? It’s not like they are werewolves on Sunday mornings, so they don’t seem to be mutually exclusive. Being a nefarious Neocon, I much prefer vampires to those hairy beasts anyhow. See, we don’t destroy our clothes every full moon.

And how does one kill God? Is their some type of Kryptonite that you can use?

More importantly, when did this get to be what the radical left was about? Has it always been this way, and have I only recently realized it? Or has radical politics gotten so nihilistic and aimless that it is content to smash up small independent shops and hurl stones at community churches?

These children are totalitarians and nothing more. At the heart of their ideology and belief structure, is a hatred for choice and personal liberty. They despise the idea that some choose to hang about a church on Sunday and buy clothing for their kids at a local boutique. They loathe the fact that they have lost the war of ideas, and realizing that they will never win the minds of the people to their pointless and rudderless cause, have opted to being nothing more than a nuisance in communities that will tolerate their juvenile behavior.

As for the comments made by “an act of revolutionary solidarity,” I would like to pose a counter question to your torrent of twaddle: when do you plan to grow out of your diapers and actually engage in a debate of ideas rather than your small acts of vandalism? Do you fear having your ideas stand on their own two feet, or are you simply too incompetent to stand on yours?

In the meantime, please refrain from being an irritant to the community you live in. Even hotbeds of “progressivism” and “understanding” like Santa Cruz have their limits, so it’s best to keep your anti-everything drivel regulated to coffee houses and bagel dumpsters.

Kim Jong Il Casts His Vote

I am a bit late getting on this bandwagon, but since many of my posts concern Korea, I figured I should throw in my two cents. Over at OneFreeKorea they have a some background on the North Korean government’s favorite candidate.
“The Chosun Sinbo, the mouthpiece of North Korea’s Japanese front organization Chongryon and often for the North Korean regime itself, has announced its preference for Obama over McCain, whom it calls “a variant of Bush” and “nothing better than a scarecrow of neoconservatives.”

While I wouldn’t hold such an endorsement against Obama, I find it telling that our enemies across the globe seem to think Obama would be better for their interests than John McCain would.

Should I find it surprising that the Chosun Sinbo sounds just like the things written at the Daily Kos and Huffington Post? Who would have thought that the North Korean government saw those evil Neocons around every corner just like our resident lefties?
