Gribbit's War on Stupdity


This classic Gribbit’s words of wisdom re-printed with permission from Gribbit who can be found at Gribbit's Word and Stop the ALCU.

The Fascists/Nazi Comparison, What Is A Neo-Con Anyway?

There is a growing sentiment in the liberal world that conservatives are fascists and nazis. This falsehood is a deliberate misdirection from the truth. Let’s take a moment to analyze the tactic. The left is putting out a message that you should fear the conservative agenda. That we are out to control the world through oppression and in some cases war. Now, who’s putting forth the fear in that statement? The liberals want you to fear a world lead by conservatives. They want you to fear the prospect of peace and stability. It’s the liberals who are putting out fear. They keep a grip on the elderly by putting forth rhetoric that Republicans are out to take away Social Security and Medicare Benefits. They tighten their grip on the union worker by putting forth rhetoric that Republicans are money grubbing Corporate types who don’t care about their workers. They keep a grip on the African-American crowd by putting forth rhetoric that the Republicans are the party of the rich, white business owners who are out to keep the poor from advancing. And because minorities have a higher percentage of impoverished, they succeed in holding on to that grip.

And now there is a new term that I don’t understand. Neo-Con? Neo meaning new. And Con which I take is a contraction for Conservative. So it must mean New Conservative. So it must be a Dumocrat who finally saw the error of his/her ways. But the moonbats use the term as if it were to mean some sort of right-wing ultra conservative. But if that is true, how can they be new? I finally have come to the realization that they just don’t know what neo means.

First off, Republicans do not want to take away benefits from the elderly. Social Security is here to stay. But there is a financial problem. Past Congresses have borrowed against the trust fund though the years to the point that the “trust fund” is nothing more than a file cabinet drawer full of bonds. Come 2008, the Babyboomers are going to begin to collect benefits. The largest generation of Americans will put such a strain on the spend as you go system that we aren’t going to be able to sustain payment. This is fact. But liberals with the help of groups like the AARP are running television ads which depict the President’s plan as a complete tear down of the system. These ads lead the viewer to believe that the system that we have grown to depend upon will be changed. And as we all know, when the government changes something, it always comes out worse than it started.

The system needs to be fixed. And the President put forth an idea that would help solve future benefit difficulties. He put this forward as a means of sparking debate. To kick start the process so to speak. But instead of coming forward with a proposal of their own, Congressional Dumocrats attacked the President’s plan. The proposal that the President put forward isn’t a fix for the system. It’s a way for younger workers to grow a larger nest egg for their own retirement. Instead of insisting on hearings and committees to find a way to make the system solvent, they are on television scaring the hell out of Americans.

Now think back. Remember your history? Who told his people that a segment of their population was to blame for their plight? Who scared his people into believing whatever he told them. I recall some fella named Hitler doing that. Don’t you? The National Socialist Party (Nazis) used racism and fear to hold the people in line. The National Socialist Party and Italy’s Fascist Party were aligned. Who is using fear now? Dumocrats.

Next, Dumocrats like to put forward the idea that Republicans are pro-rich. Well in a sense they are right. But not in the way that they put it. Republicans put forth ideas that have positive impact on the economy. Building wealth is building business. Building business is creating jobs. Then more work that is available, the more workers in the work force. The more in the work force, the smaller the amount of people putting a drain on the public welfare rolls. And thus, reducing the size of the government. And keep in mind, that most working people now a days have a retirement investment plan called a 401k. That is money that is being put into the stock market to create more wealth. Wouldn’t it make sense to have more people working so they could put more money into their 401k’s?

The Dumocratic Party likes to use the civil rights movement as their platform for holding the African-American vote. But what they don’t want you to remember is, that the party that was mostly against civil rights legislation were the Dumocrats. Long time Dumocratic leader Robert Byrd (D WV) was not only a member of the KKK, he was a Grand Dragon. Southern Dumocrats were the obstructionists of civil rights legislation. Republicans are a party of inclusion. We believe that anyone can succeed if they apply themselves. Nothing in life is easy. If you work hard to better yourself, and to better you position in life, you will be rewarded for that hard work. It’s called the American dream. And hard work builds wealth, which builds business, which employs people who invest to build more wealth.

And as far as being war mongers. Woodrow Wilson (D NY) was President when we went to war in 1917, WWI. FDR (D NY) was President when we went to war in 1941, WWII. Harry S. Truman (D MO) was President when we went to war in Korea in 1950. John F. Kennedy (D MA) was President when we sent troops to South Vietnam as military advisors in 1962. LBJ (D TX) was President when our military advisors became combat troops as the civil war in Vietnam escalated. Gerald R. Ford (R MI) was President when our troops withdrew from Vietnam. Jimmy Carter (D GA) was President when our military was down-sized at the end of the draft putting the United States in a position of weakness. It was Jimmy Carter who was President when hostages were taken in Iran. The very day the Ronald Reagan (R CA) became President that those hostages were released. The terrorists knew that Reagan wouldn’t let it go anymore. They know he would take a stand. It was Reagan who built our military into the toughest, best equipped, best trained, all volunteer fighting force on the Earth. It was George H. W. Bush (R ME) who was President when the Berlin wall came down. The Soviet Union broke up, Germany re-united, and Kuwait was liberated. William Jefferson Clinton (D AR) was President when the World Trade Center was bombed in 1993. And he did nothing. He was President when the embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed and virtually nothing. He was President when the Cole was nearly sunk and retaliated with cruise missiles. He lead our troops into Somalia, a quagmire. And allowed Saddam Hussein to thumb his nose at us for 8 long years. And do you know why Saddam did that, he knew that Clinton wouldn’t do anything. George W. Bush(R TX) was President on September 11, 2001 when Islamic terrorists crashed 3 airplanes into buildings and actually had a 4th that failed. And he went to Afghanistan to track down those who did it and remove the government who permitted them to operated out of their country. And now it’s a new democracy. It was Bush, that sent troops into Iraq to enforce UN Resolutions which Saddam Hussein was violating. And now Iraq is a new democracy. And now democracy is spreading throughout the middle east. And it’s a Republican that is at the forefront.

Then there are those who believe that George W. Bush is a dictator. Well, FDR was the closest we have ever had to a dictator. He ran for President 5 time and was elected 4 times. He attempted to initiate domestic reforms that the Supreme Court ruled were Unconstitutional. He then tried to stack the court. He tried to put forth and initiative that would add a Justice for each Justice that achieved the age of 70. So he wouldn’t have to ask Congress to approved of it, FDR initiated Lend/Lease to arm Britain against Hitler. No, George W. Bush is no dictator.
