Playboy magazine’s Kendra Wilkinson is doing her thing to make motherhood sexy, Keith Olbermann gets out of detention and more crazy left-wing radicals come out of the woodwork calling for violent revolution.
This is the Hermit with Davis Fleetwood for November 10th.
Okay so yesterday, I had some fun at Glenn Beck’s expense for whipping his Archie Bunker Racist Regressive audience into frenzy about a coming “Event”- an Oklahoma City Style event that would be launched by the radical left so that Obama could step in to unite the Country.
Enter stage left, cartoonist Ted Rall, who began his publicity tour for a book called The Anti American Manifesto. Ted Rall appeared on yesterday on MSNBC’s Dylan Rattigan show (video below transcript), where Dylan lobbed in the question: “Are things in our country so bad, that it may be time for a revolution? The answer obviously is ‘yes’ ,the only question is ‘how to do it?”
Note to over eager Glenn Beck fans: Rattigan himself did not qualify the noun “revolution” with the adjective “violent”, but he does not have a book to sell. Rall does, and I am buying it. Matter of fact, I am going to make The “Anti American Manifesto” the Davis Fleetwood book of the month selection.
It reminds me of a satirical project that I launched and abandoned well over a year ago called the 9/12 project- a rejoinder to the Glenn Beck 9/10 project that was calling for the peaceful break up of the United States into four smaller countries.
Perhaps I will bring the 9/12 Project back. Show of hands for those interested in that?
In any event, get ready your pens, Photoshop plug-ins, or weapon of choice and listen to this excerpt from Rall’s book:
“Nothing lasts forever, empires least of all. And this one, which only began to expand in earnest circa the year 1900, doesn’t feel like it has the staying power of ancient Rome. But we’re not here to talk about the vague possibility of collapse at some point in the future. We are here — in this book and within this historical moment — because the collapse feels as though it is currently in progress. We are here because the U.S. is going to end soon. There’s going to be an intense, violent, probably haphazard struggle for control. It’s going to come down to us versus them. The question is: What are you going to do about it?”
Indeed, what will we do about it?
Many of us will continue to watch from the sidelines, content to let our anger get channeled through the likes Keith Olbermann, who returned from his trip to afterschool detention last night completely giddy over all of the press he got for getting smacked down by the man. Good for Olbermann: it is a hard sell to paint your self as oppressed underdog when you are a millionaire with an hour a night on cable TV. He and Conan O’Brien have cracked the code on this one, now how do I get me an hour a night on cable?
What will we do about it?
Even armchair sociologists know that a statistical majority anesthetized themselves through immersion in video games, drugs, and alcohol or simply grab the latest playboy and rub one out.
Kendra Wilkinson, Playboy’s “unstoppable girl” is on the December cover, conquering the world. Kendra motive? Money.?
No, she is a queen of the underground sex tape industry and the wife of an NFL football player, she does not want for money. Her reason was to empower women who have given birth to feel sexy. The only problem is, the photos that appear in December’s playboy were taken before she ever got pregnant. Her husband did not approve of the post childbirth photos, and so they never made it into print.
How that for empowerment?
I think I’ll leave December’s playboy on the newsstand, and look for empowerment in Ted Rall’s new book.
