HERE’s Your Bell Curve, You Single Ply Asswipes

Defenestrating Naomi Wolf [UPDATED]

(caveat: I don’t like people like this)

This is odd… someone that I got one of their books on one of my shelfs…
is in needing of a beating.

Oh well, here we go. I said it was coming.

Wolfie farts around talking about Thailand for her entry into this fever dream; posits (with nothing to back her other than her own thought) that there is a Step Program–like kicking liquor–that leads to dictatorship…
then gets to her nubbie:

As difficult as this is to contemplate, it is clear, if you are willing to look, that each of these 10 steps has already been initiated today in the United States by the Bush administration.

Not one step. Not even five. All ten have been stepped.

And here we are, enjoined as the foot soldiers in the Happy Dance, without even knowing it.

Because Americans like me were born in freedom [as was every other baby born in US of America, 1962], we have a hard time even considering that it is possible for us to become as unfree – domestically – as many other nations [HELLO!, SECOND AMENDMENT]. Because we no longer learn much about our rights or our system of government – the task of being aware of the constitution has been outsourced from citizens’ ownership to being the domain of professionals such as lawyers and professors – we scarcely recognise the checks and balances that the founders put in place, even as they are being systematically dismantled. Because we don’t learn much about European history, the setting up of a department of “homeland” security – remember who else was keen on the word “homeland” – didn’t raise the alarm bells it might have.

Who are these people she’s talking about when she says “the task of being aware of the constitution has been outsourced from citizens’ ownership to being the domain of professionals such as lawyers and professors.”???

Me? You? Who, exactly, does she see as her fellow citizens who have acceded the core basic of their citizenship?

Some form of sheep farted out by the public education system?

If it actually is us, that girl just called us idiots. We can’t read the Bill of Rights? Toots? I can fucking recite it.

Because we don’t learn much about European history, the setting up of a department of “homeland” security – remember who else was keen on the word “homeland” – didn’t raise the alarm bells it might have.

Ooohh, Nazi drop! BushHitler!! Going Godwin this quick?

Gutless American Pundits

From Hitler to Pinochet and beyond, history shows there are certain steps that any would-be dictator must take to destroy constitutional freedoms. And, argues Naomi Wolf, George Bush and his administration seem to be taking them all

Fascist America, in 10 easy steps – Naomi Wolf

It’s a quarter to two in the morning, so I’m not going to go into how seriously asshole this chick’s thesis is when laid and flayed to flesh out the “facts” allegedly backing her presumptions (I might come back and fisk the shit out of it later in the morning [DING!]), but I am sick and tired of “Americans” going larking to off-continent outfits like the Guardian to spew their shit.

That rag will print any crap that comes over their transom that slams the US; Wolf is supposedly a renowned author (and “earth tones” clothes guru), yet she had to go to Blighty to get this shit in print? Same as that gutless fucking douchebag Blumenthal, they know no one here would have the nerve to print their crap. The Guardian can’t suffer American blowback. Tit-simple byline.

If your screed holds up to scrutiny, why can’t you pikers find an American outlet? You gotta know we’re gonna hear about it…. Why not stand by your words in American ink?
