“I think our governments will remain virtuous for many centuries as long as they are chiefly agricultural; and this will be as long as there shall be vacant lands in any part of America. When they get piled upon one another in large cities as in Europe, they will become corrupt as in Europe.” Thomas Jefferson

Is A New American Reality Dawning?

Conservatives surely had no objections when some of the so-called “True patriot” fanatics went around the country advocating insurrection and actual violence against certain government officials with their hate signs in hand and their weapons strapped to their sides, did they?

There was no pepper spray flying or heads being cracked with night sticks then, was there? It begs the question, “Why?” As far as I am concerned. The Occupy Wall Streeters pose no threat to the peace as far as I have heard. (Except perhaps in the imagination of those who oppose these new courageous “Real” American Patriots because of a perceived threat against their comfort zones.)

But Radical Conservatism certainly appears to me to be soiling it’s own garments with fear of  what The Occupy Wall Street Movement represents, doesn’t it?

Some of the shallow-minded  from the pit of the barely-educated corners of this very extremeist and radical new- order Conservatism are reportedly  claiming that the Occupy Protests are nothing more than some kind of distraction. Some of the Far Right Radical Religious moralists (The “Family Values” crowd) are reported to be saying that Conservatism has no disdain for the Poor or the Middle Class.

I have never heard such outright BS propaganda as that in my life!  In my opinion, Radical Conservatism not only has “Disdain” for the less fortunate, it often displays absolute and uncompromising hatred for them and revulsion of them! This has been more than adequately demonstrated by word and deed in my opinion—and the whole world has watched—and is still watching!

In my opinion, based on nearly a century of observation and experience, Radicalized American Conservatism preaches “Christian” ethic with the passion of Crusaders and very often practices hypocrisy with the passion of something from the pits of Perdition.

Every time I read something written by some  Extremeist Conservative pen, I get all this garbage about alcohol and drug abuse, public urination, defecation, filth and litter– all deftly associated by some on the Kook Fringes of Conservatism with the Occupy Wall Street Protesters. (Or sometimes with Liberals, Democrats and Progressives in general).

My impression when I read that kind of uncharitable description of OWS is, “These Far Right Wing Radical Extremest  idiots are describing themselves!”

After all, I have always believed that Conservatism draws it’s lifeblood from among the least educated and most easily led sector of Humanity ever assembled for a cause… even though most of it’s adherents seem to me to have no earthly idea of what the “Cause” is other than to discredit Liberals at any cost and by any means, devious or otherwise.

In my personal view, one of the biggest outright lies of Radical American  Conservatism (And it is hard to focus on just one lie because lies seem to form the foundation for everything this particular flavor of  Conservatism tries to do) is that the “Filth” element comprises the “Core” value and being of OWS Protesters.

Everyone who gets their news from the “Real” media (Not the contrived ramblings  of the Far Right Wing-Created Revisionist Media that caters to those who need the fantasy to feel good about their deluded state) knows that OWS is made up of unemployed workers, teachers, public servants, firefighters, some police, some military, some retired folks, professors, academics, scientists and all kinds of people from all walks of life. These are good people; decent, hard-working people.

If anyone wants to invoke “Defecation” in their mindless descriptions of the actions of the OWS People, then let it be invoked in the following manner: “It is the Occupy People and those like them who are the  ones that have been defecated on by some of the elitist powers that be.”  That would be a more accurate application of that disgusting terminology being flung about by the ugliness of some Far Righters.

OWS is real people in real circumstances with a real message to the real world—”Bring down oppression from the super rich elitists and restore human dignity to the struggling masses.” That is my take on it.

Some faux Patriotic types used to run around in their ridiculous little tricorn hats and their replicas of Revolutionary garb spouting about “Taking America Back” by means of a new “Revolution.”

Well, folks, I guess the OWS Protests are providing the beginnings of that “Revolution.”  The difference between OWS and their tight-silk-panty and tricorn hat imitators is that the screaming faux Patriot types sometimes advocated for actual “Blood-In-The-Streets” Revolution and OWS is advocating a Revolution through peaceful and orderly cultural change. This is how I see things.

The former  revolutionary vision was a deluded dream of a bunch of noisy losers in Halloween costumes.  The latter vision–the vision of the OWS represents the concrete reality of the future of America and the World. I get the impression that Radical Conservatism is quaking in it’s boots because of this rapidly-spreading OWS vision.

I would like to remind my poor afflicted friends under the toxic spell of Radical Conservatism that I see the OWS Protesters as the movers and shakers  of the bright new tomorrow awaiting every  American with the guts to take up the cause of Liberty and Real Freedom, and to listen to the words of Thomas Jefferson who was a most sincere advocate for “Real” America.

“Every People may establish what form of government they please, and change it as they please, the will of the nation being the only thing essential.”—Thomas Jefferson:Anas 1792.

Author: John Liming - American Liberal Times

I am an American Man, 72-years-old, and a Veteran of The U.S. Military. I have served honorably in both The United States Army (National Guard) and The United States Air Force for a total of seven years and three months active duty during what is now known as The Vietnam Era. I am a concerned citizen and refer to myself as "A Crazy Left Wing Liberal Nut Case with occasional Right Wing Conservative tendencies. I am particularly concerned and grieved about the way our beloved America seems to have become so politically divided over the past few years to the point where hardly anyone seems to be able to get along or to work together and where mutual vilification seems to be a spectator sport of some kind. I am particular fearful that we might get to the point, in our internal power struggles where we would be a One Party Nation. That, in my opinion, would be a total disaster and that is what I fear certain members of the element generally known as The "Christian" Conservative Right may have in mind.

  • Hey, I read this article with interest and I assume that the “true Patriot” fanatics you are referring to are the Tea party? If this is an incorrect assumption I apologize. However, I don’t recall these gatherings consisting of individuals “advocating insurrection and actual violence against certain government officials with their hate signs in hand”. As I recall the underlying message promoted by the Tea Party was smaller government and adherence to the Constitution, neither which are bad things.

    I must have missed the reporting on the instances you allude to, all the same I do like to stay well informed so would it be possible for you to provide some dates and source material detailing this instances? I think this would be beneficial for all of your readers, particularly those that might tend to think that you make this stuff up just to rant.It’s high time that you put those individuals in their place by showing them the facts, after all facts are facts.

    I look forward to seeing the facts as it was my understanding that the Tea Party rallies were peaceful, followed the rules by obtaining permits in advance, and generally left the venues where they were held cleaner than when they arrived. As for “weapons strapped to their sides”, can you please also tell me how many of these individuals were not licensed to carry.At least for the present time in most areas an individual is entitled to arm themselves as long as they acquire the proper permits.

    I have searched the web, but have not been able to find any indications of arrests at Tea Party rallies, that seems strange considering the actions you indicate they were involved in. However, depending on the search criteria I used I kept getting hundreds of results about Occupy arrests and felonies committed. You don’t think that possibly Google and Yahoo are in cahoots with the Radical Conservatism True Patriots you refer to?

    You have my sympathies if that is the case, because frankly it is beginning to appear that the forces arrayed against you are indeed powerful, or at least so in your own mind.

    I look forward to reviewing your source material, take care and keep up the good work.

  • It always compliments me greatly when things that I write cause such comprehensive efforts to challenge. I love the fact that I can be the reason that someone will go to to all that extra effort. In my opinion such effort shows desperation to disprove and that is a good thing because, as I see it, that confirms my position ever the more strongly. Much thanks goes out to anyone who is that devoted and I sincerely am grateful for the attention.

    I hope the following link will provide some of the support that this comment seems to seek. Of course, no matter what I write here nothing will have any effect…as is to be expected:

    You have to scroll down this link to see the photographs of the hate signs to which I have alluded in my post.

    I will take care of my own writing, thank you. I do not need outside instruction.

  • can you please also tell me how many of these individuals were not licensed to carry.At least for the present time in most areas an individual is entitled to arm themselves as long as they acquire the proper permits.

    I have written the article. I am not interested in who is licensed to carry and who is not and it is irrelevant to my article.

    It doesn’t matter what I think about Google and Yahoo and I do not need sympathies from this source.
