I like thinking about politics and I like marijuana,
Happy Easter! Reefercake reaction to the reaction to “Debate Me”.
It was a delight to have Ronald Raygun, aka Stephen Robbins and work through some of my issues with regard to the perceived arrogance of Micheal Brooks, and my own obvious arrogance. I will admit that I believe I am smarter than Micheal Brooks on most issues especially the political implications of the Russia issue on the Democratic Party. Ronald suggested a three way podcast with Micheal, stay tuned….maybe Mikey will grow a pair of testicles and join us someday?
I just realized it again today, something I have realized many times before. I will promise myself to never forget it again. People in the media on the center left are even worse that the right wingers that they say they will protect us from. I know Jimmy Dore says it all the time, but today I am really feeling it. Its a sick and helpless feeling. Of course the big media pundits, like Rachel Maddow making $30,000 a day at MSNBC will obviously will play this game. What really makes me lose hope in humanity when the little guys like Michael Brooks play that same game. Sorry, but I don’t think your phrase “dumb, dumb left” that you use to put down the true left independent media is going to get you the next gold ticket from MSNBC, but you never know, keep shitting on people who love Bernie and hate Hillary and you may impress the corporate overlords.
These center left people appear decent in many ways, but they are all too accepting of liars and hypocrites for no other reason than the fact that this appears to be normal. Issues get lost all too easily. For example a couple big issues that Hillary Clinton scares people on – World War 3 with Russia, and world-wide water quality destruction with Fracking. These are life threatening, life changing issues at stake here, yet there are whole leagues of media and others brainwashed to believe that hypocrisy is just part of the game. Somehow they rationalize this….or shall I say normalize, since its the new fancy word at play for these leagues of poor brainwashed souls who devote themselves to the pretzel logic of making themselves sound smart by putting down others. No matter how fancy their words, no matter how smart they try to sound, these people who are supposed to report on politics and news are entirely in their own bubbles. Its bad. Heads in their asses, and they just keep losing. Big league losers.
Trace the root of all our problems back to what I call the “Normalization of Hypocrisy”. All this talk of normalizing Trump from the same robotic eggheads who said that Hillary Clinton would make a great president. These people are dumb and numb to all around them. I will herebt dub them the “Dumb, Numb Left”.
We all know about right wing hypocrisy….the way it comes to light has been obvious, but more sinister is the way that lies and hypocrisy have been accepted on the left. Now we have seen that in full force, in the humiliating defeat of Hillary Clinton. I ask for humility.
“will they show any humility? or are they completely dumb and numb to the world outside their bubbles?”
As you know I am a contributor to the Majority Report, and the songs that I send in on Fridays are sometimes my attempt at correcting some of the nonsense on the show that has contributed to what I call the normalization of hypocrisy, and the lack of humility when confronting what they call the “Dumb, dumb left”. Famously, my song “Orange Lemonade” received a coo-koo clock and was cut off in mid song, simply because the song expressed the fact that even if Hillary was president we are still more or less fucked.
This is part 1 in a never-ending multi part series….more later on “Dumb dumb left vs. dumb and numb left.”
I wonder if Michael Brooks would care to debate me now? What does it take to get 20 minutes of his precious time? Does he care to better himself by getting into the monkey cage with me? Or is he afraid I will leave his world shattered and expose him? It could go either way, stay tuned!!!
Jimmy got a new mic and jimmy like, jimmy like. 20 minutes of pure Reefercake, addressing the Sam Seder saga, a strange obsession with getting “Sammy” to play “Smoke a Bowl” on his show give me a wee little interview to talk about reefer madness….and the HYPOCRISY.
If people listen I'll do it on a weekly basis. Turn off you TVs and tune in to ALL THE HYPOCRISY! Blog much? Blog HERE! Blog NOW!
allright, I give up….how the hell do I get this one to link up…?
HOLD FOR TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES….
Allright I have figured out that my 20 minutes of podcasting brilliance is too big a file…might have to deliver this shit in 10 minute segments…no time now but will get too that….for now witness my cover of North Country Blues (first try on on the new mic)
Take a heavy dose of realism about the national scene. Unless Texas and Oklahoma start forming their own countries, why bang your head about Obama-this and Obama-that. The media wants to obsess on Obama because it suits their needs. Who the hell knows what degree of compromise is needed to appease the monkey brain of this country, but I know that it will never be satisfactory to us, like minded progressive, hypocrisy haters. Why even speculate when the results are often so easily predictable?
Take another dose of realism about our media brigade…we at the Reefercake household are taking the plunge and cancelling the cable TV…I am embarrassed to say that we were paying $120 a month to be force fed vomit. We are keeping our internet which is $60, and we are going to squeeze as much goodness out of those tubes as we possibly can…I am even looking into streaming sports online…or spending the extra $120 on a special chicken wings and beer fund for watching sports at the bar.
Here is one part optimism. You are more likely to find the positive change that you seek closer to home, friends, family, local politics, helping the little old lady next door, volunteering to coach your kids soccer team, or running a kick ass blog that shreds through the hypocrisy to present the real. Be the change you want to see.
And a dash of “F*** You!” Just because I am keeping it real doesn't mean I don't still hate hypocrisy, and still enjoy ridiculing it and exposing it with great contempt. Damn those hypocrites!!
