The Eternal Victimization of the Conservative Mind


Once upon a time we lived in a world where it was hard for a good Republican to get a break.  Life was tough.  Then came the far right talking radio and the internet.  Along came FOX.  Suddenly, the far right had almost equal representation, if not more, in the news.  It really doesn’t matter.  The press, those evil journalists are to blame for most of the problems faced by the far right.  There are a few other individuals the far right blames.

The far right has a problem with victimization.  Everything that happens is always the fault of someone else, but never them.  There are so many to blame, and so little time in which to do it.

Get the picture?  Rush, Sean, Laura, Michelle, Mark, the whole bunch is always blaming someone else for whatever it is that is going wrong within the conservative movement.  I am beginning to suspect that they play the victim card far more than does the far left.  There’s a good reason for this.  You play the victim card and you need not take responsibility for your own actions.

The media, the evil media, is out to get Herman Cain.  If one were to listen to his answer to the question Newt posed to him during the debate Newt answers questions on Saturday evening, the media is to blame for his problems.  Journalists are evil and out to destroy conservatives.  According to serial tea party panderer, Steve King, the media attack on Cain is disturbing.

If you listen to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, or read the increasingly absurd Newsbusters site, everything is the fault of the media.  Conservatives are innocent victims of evil journalists out to get Obama and all Democrats re-elected.  The media is evil, pure evil, out to get the right.

The far right likes to constantly discuss the way the left plays the victimization card, constantly.  The Pink Flamingo is loath to mention this, but when it comes to playing the victims of the evil left and the evil left-wing media, the far right is masterful.

If one reads Newsbusters, and it is a rough thing to do, the media attacks against the right are never ending.

This clip of Herman Cain did not come from the liberal media, but one of the most conservative bloggers in the business, Dan Riehl.  You might want to scroll down the comments.  It was the left-wing reporter’s fault that Cain lost his temper.

Rush Limbaugh has made millions playing the victim, to the point where, this week, he is finally making a mockery of himself.  He and Hannity, along with other, who are incapable of making a mistake, are bound and determined to destroy these women.  You see, the far right is the victim of the evil reporters at Politico.

“…Once the women’s names emerge, it’s likely to be open season on them—their sexual histories, their politics, their competence, and their finances. Already, many conservatives have declared that all sexual-harassment cases are con jobs. “Is there anyone who thinks sexual harassment is a real thing?” asks The National Review’s John Derbyshire. “Is there anyone who doesn’t know it’s all a lawyers’ ramp, like ‘racial discrimination?’ You pay a girl a compliment nowadays, she runs off and gets lawyered up.” (Derbyshire is a sort of camp version of a reactionary creep; he’s famous for saying that the only women worth seeing naked are those under 20.) “We have seen this movie before and we know how it ends,” declared conservative radio host Laura Ingraham. “It always ends up being an employee who can’t perform or who under-performs and is looking for a little green.”…”

According to Cain, the media is downright dishonest. If you read American Thinker with any regularity, you will learn that Cain is the victim of a media smear.

The talking heads have made a business out of playing the victimization game.  They are doing so in a masterful manner, making a fortune in the process.  It is in their best interests to allow the game to continue.  It really has nothing to do with what is right, wrong, accurate, or factual, only what can create ratings, bring in sponsors, and pad their bank accounts.

The beautiful irony of this is they rail against liberals playing the same game.  It is a game, rather like Monopoly.  Every time you pass go you get two million bucks. Don’t ever think this is about getting Republicans elected into office.  As victims, they do better if Republicans lose.  They can cry, fret, wring their hands, and once again blame George Soros and his evil empire, and make even more money.

They have completely lost touch with reality.  If they lived in the same world as you and I, were we struggle to pay the bills, wonder where the next blow is coming from, and watch our once secure world go down in flames, they might realize there is more to life than their pathetic little take on the world.  If you are worth billions, you are one of the sacred.  They are ignoring the fact that corporate CEOs are making more than ever, with their large take-home pay directly correlating to the number of jobs they destroy.  They don’t seem to get the fact that bankers and lending are no longer playing fair, with lives, hopes, and dreams being slaughtered in pursuit of the bottom line.

The only way our far right victims can even look at the world and their own reflection in the mirror, if indeed they have one, is by blaming Obama, Obamacare, new rules, regulations, the EPA, and everyone else in between.  They don’t bother even contemplating the fact that corporations are sitting on so much cash banks are now charging them to keep the cash.

We would not be in this economic mess if their sainted multi-billionaire handlers would do the right and honorable thing, pay their employees a little more, and begin to reinvest in this nation.  Instead, they cry about the deficit, the national debt, and how they can’t raise taxes.  Grover Norquist won’t like it.  Many of the top corporations in this country paid absolutely nothing – not one red cent in taxes last year.  They did this while hording cash, trimming their work-force, an padding the pockets of their CEOs.

No wonder the average person looks upon the far right as the pawns of the uber rich.

Oh, wait – they are victims of the Obama economy.  They are victims of the liberal media, evil journalists, and that nasty George Soros.  It’s a heck of a lot easier claiming victimization than coming up with real solutions and learning how to work with others like grown-ups.

Part of the solution, for them, is to destroy real, honorable and decent Republicans who are trying to put the best interests of this nation ahead of their own personal agenda.  Men like Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Joe Lieberman, Tom Coburn, Jim Inhofe, etc. are the enemy.  These people must be destroyed because they are rational leaders who are looking for viable solutions to the problems this country has. If solutions are found, then the talking head – far right victim game isn’t near as much fun – for those making the Big Bucks off it.

P. S.  The Pink Flamingo can’t wait for Tuesday night and we discover that Russell Pearce has lost his recall election – to another Republican.  I wonder how FOX News is going to call that one?
