Not long ago a friend of mine used a phrase I hadn’t heard before – “The Angry Left”, and at the time I thought that was a very odd thing to say, given that almost all the shrill spit-flying anger I’ve EVER heard in Politics was from people on the right, and I’ve really never heard serious anger from anyone I know on the left…..in fact, I’M the one who is usually the angry one on the left, and I don’t really get that angry at people about this stuff, (mainly because I figure if they don’t get what’s going on, they must be challenged somehow, and I don’t like to make fun), so where is this angry left? (I now know that it’s a phrase the right has floated out there to give their base another canard-bomb to throw when someone starts using facts truth and other pesky stuff that needs to be obscured in a tidal wave of biley glue that you can’t get off your body without a shower, a bottle of toilet cleaner, and a belt sander.)
So where is the “Angry Left”….? Well, I guess it’s NOT in Strongsville, Ohio.
Now I’ll grant you that the videographers in these clips must have known what they were gonna get when they started filming here, but if there is a Mother-Lode of dumbass knee-jerk redneck Stoopid-Is-As-Stoopid-Does Gumpaliciousness, this is the spot. Full of people who are just plain angry at……ummm…….well, I’m not quite sure what, but they’re REALLY ANGRY at any rate, and filled with inarticulate half or non truths that they’ve gleaned word for word from Limbaugh/O’Reilly/et al, these folks give new meaning to the phrase “Dumber than a Bag of Hair”.
Unless you’ve been living in your closet for the last week you’re probably already seen some of this, but since that’s possible, here’s some looks at what I’m talking about….
Ok, call me an elitist………..great, thanx. Now, if you were on Obama’s Secret Service detail, you’d be looking around a little harder in that part of the country wouldn’t you? Makes me a little scared for the guy, because THIS kind of thing gets a little past politics and gets into some, shall we say, “darker” parts of the human psyche. I mean seriously, do YOU know anyone who’s this angry on the left, (besides me of course) who doesn’t also chain themselves to trees?
Anyways, I’d love to see ANY evidence of this kind of nuttiness on the left, and be assured that I will put any vids that show lefty weirdness up, because it’s either real and I can say “Well, I was wrong” or it’ll be obvious BS and I can make fun of you in public….so send it in!
