MATT DRUDGE AND THE REPUBLICAN LIE MACHINE

Millionaire scumbag Matt Drudge, who still uses photos of himself from 25 years ago, made yet another last ditch attempt to discourage people from getting Obamacare in the final days before the enrollment deadline of March 31. Drudge, who has been a lying shill for the Republican party for decades, claimed that he paid the fine for “opting out” of Obamacare when filing his tax returns for 2013. Never mind that there isn’t such a penalty. It doesn’t exist. Won’t exist until 2016 and even then there are exceptions. 

No matter though, Drudge knows his readers are idiots and will believe anything he says. So he can lie. Lie and make millions while they die from not having health insurance. Drudge doesn’t care because he is a sick individual, you really can’t even call him a human being. He’s a money loving, greedy amoeba. He can afford a Cadillac health plan, his readers can’t. But that won’t prevent them from spreading his lies to anyone that will listen to them. “Hey, Matt Drudge knows what’s good for us!”

This is what Alan Grayson, a true Democrat, meant when he said that the Republicans health care plan is simply this…”Die quickly.” They have no ideas because they don’t want to have any ideas. They want insurance companies, who have given millions to their campaigns, to prosper and make as much money as possible. The hell with the people. As long as millionaires can buy their own health care and politicians get it through the government, the people can just die.

Yes in these final days, as enrollment surges towards the six million mark, the Republicans and their allies will continue to spread lies. Drudge has his marching orders as they all do. March in lock step and try to defeat Obamacare. This is why I continue to bang my head against a fucking wall when I hear fellow Democrats talking about “fixing Obamacare.” This is a losing strategy come November as it plays right into the hands of the Republicans. It allows them to control the talking points and the course of the argument. The health care system needed fixing and Obamacare is the fix. Period.

Republicans like Drudge have no problem telling lies but Democrats seem to have a problem stating the truth, which is on their side. Republicans use Obamacare to push their radical anti-women agenda. They call “Hobby Lobby” and their contraception battle, a fight for “religious freedom.” When of course it’s about pushing one religious view on all of us. They don’t want women to have access to contraception yet when they get pregnant they also don’t want them to be allowed to have an abortion. When they have the child and can’t afford it, Republicans want to call these women nasty names and take away any safety nets…including access to health coverage!

It is a sick cycle of lies, and deceit that is uniquely American. Of course so many Republican voters think these rich, greedy parasites are looking out for them. Parasites like Drudge. A professional con artist who can afford a mansion while his followers can’t afford a simple visit to the doctor or even food.

My hatred for him and his kind go beyond words and into a very dark place. A place that someone who is from a more civilized, caring nation would never understand. Like I said, uniquely American.

    One has to be willing to suspend disbelief, and reject all facts, in order to embrace the completely subjective reality the Republican/Neo Confederate Insurrectionist Tea Party is propagating. Essentially, an individual has to be willing to live within an all encompassing lie, guided only by a programmed, subconscious, irrational fear and hate, where ideological ends are the overriding rationalization for it’s devious and insidious means.

    Matt Drudge is one of the many well paid, lying, media partners that is allied with the GOP.

    The GOP now has three separate wings in the party, allied with business and media entities, in a Conservative Alliance (Conall). There is the fanatical fundamentalist, end times, anti Christian, dominionist, theocratic, homophobic, misogynistic, anti-Science, Bronze Age wing, the John Birch, racist, fake libertarian, destroy government, re-litigate or actually re-fight the Civil War, Neo Confederate Insurrectionist Tea Party wing, and the autocratic, corporatist, robber baron, .01%, wing, along with their business, TV, radio, internet, and print media partners.

    The GOP has consistently sought to manipulate the real, imagined, and insidiously seeded frustrations of the electorate. They repeat the ”government doesn’t work” meme ad infinitum, while they are simultaneously working with every resource they can muster, to destroy, sell, and/or privatize the workings and property of our government. They always appeal to prejudice, preying on, and cultivating every fissure of disunity. They never miss an opportunity to play upon the fears and vanities of the populace, inciting them to turn on their fellow citizens and against their own Democratic Republic. They manipulate elections with smear campaigns against their opposing candidates, and use legislation to control voting numbers and political district boundaries.

    The GOP has created a cult like mentality in their base, programming them with fear, into a consciousness that denies their connection to humanity and nature with a fanatical maliciousness. They have created an entire lineup of scapegoats for the base to blame everything on; the poor and less fortunate are lazy takers who are destroying this country, gays are destroying the family, the immigrants are taking all the jobs, the unions are bankrupting corporations and municipal governments, Muslim Americans are trying to institute Sharia Law, women who stand up for their right to birth control or an abortion are whores, anyone who disagrees with theocracy is demonic, scientist and academics who speak against corporate interest and in favor of our environment are job killing tree huggers, all minorities are inferior humans who are lazy and incapable of taking care of themselves.

    The GOP’s base is addicted to hating these scapegoated ”enemies” provided to them. Now, like junkies for hate and disinformation, they need a bigger and bloodier pieces of red meat every day. There is no shortage of political and media figures, like Matt Drudge, on the right clamoring for the opportunity to lie and get the media exposure for doing it. They act with a particularly fanatical zeal, as they are hypnotized into some sort of delusional self aggrandizing religious fervor. When I hear the rhetoric their representatives and media talkers use, I get the feeling that they dream of wielding violent power over others, and that they enjoy seeing people and nature suffer. The hateful and divisive rancor they espouse has become a malignant contagion of acrimony, spitefulness, and disinformation spreading through the id of the United States of America like a cancer.

    The GOP is a threat to the survival of our Democratic Republic.
