The Narcissiam of the Right


200px-Fonzie_jumps_the_sharkI love being right!

The Pink Flamingo voted for Barack Obama.  I don’t mind admitting that I did.  I’ve never voted for a Dem before in my life.  The way I feel right now, about the irrational stupidity of the GOP, I don’t know if I will ever vote for anther Republican.  I hope they are wrong.

Why did I vote for Obama? Well, the GOP was running an extremely liberal, emotionally disturbed jerk, who was far more liberal than Obama.  I love being right.  It looks like the latest studies are out and Obama is the most ideologically moderate Dem since WWII.

Repeat after The Pink Flamingo, “The Pink Flamingo was right.”  Okay, that’s a little snippy, but I love being able to say that I told you so!  I revel in being right.  And – on today of all days!  I WAS RIGHT!

The far right is in a snit.  Like Colin Powell said the other day, the GOP is in trouble.  There is a growing tide of racism within the party that is destroying it.  It is now so strong, many on the right simply appear to be unable to accept the fact that a man, who is not white, was not only elected, but re-elected, with what can only be said to be a mandate.  Consequently, they are doing everything possible to destroy not only him, but if they must take down the country to do so, then what the heck, they can just quote Jefferson.  And, to prove that Powell was right, every lousy conservative in the business is attacking him.

It has reached  the point now, where once seemingly slightly rational individuals are calling for armed revolt.  Larry Klayman of Judicial Watch is calling for open revolt, for revolution.

“…Judicial Watch founder Larry Klayman is once again calling for a revolution in his WorldNetDaily column, telling readers to “pray that Obama and Biden and the likes of Pelosi and Reid are so stupid as to carry through with their threats, so that the masses will finally be provoked to rise up as they did in colonial times.”…”

Please, explain to The Pink Flamingo that this is NOT racism?

THIS… is not racist?

“…Today, and as just one example among an ever-expanding array of disgraceful illegal acts by our judges on a daily basis, the refusal of courts to hear eligibility challenges concerning the status of Barack Hussein Obama as a “natural born citizen” reinforces the reality that we no longer have a functional legal system. Notwithstanding that the result is a black-Muslim, anti-white, anti-Semitic and anti-Christian “Manchurian candidate” fraudster socialist tyrant in the Oval Office – bent on tearing down and destroying the pillars of our formerly capitalist society …”

Chuck Baldwin is calling for a revolution.

“...The time is late, folks! We no longer have the luxury of straddling the fence or putting our heads in the sand. If your pastor refuses to take a public stand for YOUR liberties, and the liberties of YOUR CHILDREN, vote with your feet and walk out the door. Find yourself a pastor who will defend your liberties and the liberties of your children–liberties that other pastors and patriots purchased at the cost of their very blood.

I repeat what I’ve already said, “Whatever the consequences might be, and whatever anyone else does or doesn’t do, I am prepared to become an outlaw over this issue! I don’t know how to say it any plainer: I will not register my firearms, and I will not surrender my firearms. Period. End of story. It’s not just a saying with me: when my guns are outlawed, I will be an outlaw!

“My line in the sand is drawn here!”

And so are the lines of millions of Americans.

In response to Pat Buchanan’s prediction of revolution should the federal government attempt to confiscate our guns, John McLaughlin replied, “Baloney!”

I’m sure that’s what King George III said when he was told that would happen if his troops attempted to confiscate the guns at Concord.

“...In law, sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that is deemed by the legal authority to tend toward insurrection against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent (or resistance) to lawful authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel. A seditionist is one who engages in or promotes the interests of sedition.

Typically, sedition is considered a subversive act, and the overt acts that may be prosecutable under sedition laws vary from one legal code to another. Where the history of these legal codes has been traced, there is also a record of the change in the definition of the elements constituting sedition at certain points in history. This overview has served to develop a sociological definition of sedition as well, within the study of state persecution.

The difference between sedition and treason consists primarily in the subjective ultimate object of the violation to the public peace. Sedition does not consist of levying war against a government nor of adhering to its enemies, giving enemies aid, and giving enemies comfort. Nor does it consist, in most representative democracies, of peaceful protest against a government, nor of attempting to change the government by democratic means (such as direct democracy or constitutional convention).

Sedition is the stirring up of rebellion against the government in power. Treason is the violation of allegiance to one’s sovereign or state, giving aid to enemies, or levying war against one’s state. Sedition is encouraging one’s fellow citizens to rebel against their state, whereas treason is actually betraying one’s country by aiding and abetting another state. Sedition laws somewhat equate to terrorism and public order laws…”

You would thin we were living in a world where we were controlled by a bunch of two year old little monsters.  That is what the conservative punditry has become.  It is what the Koch owned Republicans in the House are.  Who even knows what is going on in the Senate.  They need a chill pill and Ashley Judd to run against Mitch McConnell.

It’s strange how all a person needs to do is spew hate and paranoia and they are believed.  That doesn’t say much about this country, does it?  I think it is now becoming obvious that the extreme agenda of the new far right is a very real threat to this country.  A recent study by West Point also suggests that this is the case.  The problem is the links comes from the WTimes, and links back to the WTimes, which is a crap publication.

“…During the Republican presidential primary and leading right up to the general election, candidates decried President Obama’s practice of stealing money from white Americans to give to African Americans “who just want more free stuff.” Romney, particularly, utilized a Ku Klux Klan slogan and portrayed President Obama as a foreigner who did not understand what it meant to be an American, and claimed the President pacified Muslim’s and degraded Christians and their favorite nation, Israel. Nearly all Republican candidates diligently pushed extremist Christian agendas against women and gays by promising to repeal Roe v. Wade, defund Planned Parenthood, ban contraception, and criminalize same-sex marriage that are part and parcel of the fundamentalist Christian agenda. All Republicans campaigned to weaken and defund all aspects of the federal government except defense, and promised to give states sovereignty over the federal government regardless the Supremacy clause in the U.S. Constitution.

The West Point report examined the three terror groups, racists, fundamentalist Christians, and anti-federal government advocates as individual threats in their own right, but combined, they represent everything the Republican Party promised to impose on the nation if they prevailed in the general election. It is impossible to segregate the right-wing extremists into separate groups when their combined ideologies fall under the aegis of Republican dogma, and the government cannot address any of the groups’ threats without first addressing why, and where, they got the idea their extremist agenda would garner legislative support, without which they will resort to violence….”

The Pink Flamingo is sick and tired of being questioned, harassed, and approached by former reasonable conservative colleagues.  They approach with this almost evangelical religious fervor. It is getting old.  If you don’t think and believe what they do, you are wrong, evil, and not deserving of First Amendment rights.  As I write this, I’m being harassed on Twitter, because I refuse to agree with someone who is now attacking because I don’t agree with him.

It finally dawned on The Pink Flamingo why the far right has such a problem with the concept of rape.  If they cannot comprehend the idea that no, as in no more discussion, means no more discussion, then heaven help the poor woman that says no for other reasons.

These people have lost their minds.

“…Narcissism is a generalized personality trait characterized by egotism, vanity, conceit, or selfishness. However, narcissism has subsequently included particular meanings in specific fields, including:
A central concept of psychoanalytic theory
A mental illness
A social or cultural problem
A personality trait.
Except in the sense of primary narcissism or healthy self-love, narcissism is usually considered a problem in a person or group’s relationships with self and others….”

  • An obvious self-focus in interpersonal exchanges
  • A lack of psychological awareness
  • Difficulty with empathy
  • Hypersensitivity to any insults or imagined insults
  • Detesting those who do not admire them
  • Using other people without considering the cost of doing so
  • Pretending to be more important than they really are
  • Inability to view the world from the perspective of other people
  • Grandiose sense of self-worth
  • Pathological lying
  • Failure to accept responsibility for own actions
  • Callous/lack of empathy
  • Spiritual narcissism is turning the pursuit of spirituality into an ego-building and confusion-creating endeavor.

Please, explain how the far right is not suffering from a major personality disorder.
