An army of chickenhawks wants to have a “civil war” before they venture off to the business world and make their billions.
A continuation of Lil’ Tucker goes off to war.
Also a riff off of earlier posts:
• John Wayne: hi from Earth.
• Bury Rush Limbaugh in Arlington National Cemetery. Own the libs.
This isn’t going to be a long post. Mainly, I saw this genius meme here and came to the conclusion that more people in the world should see it.
It reminded me why I wrote the first Lil’ Tucker goes off to war. post.
If this meme is the product of China, Russia, Iran, or some other hostile government—yo, Hostile Government Leader: you need to give this propaganda analyst/psyops technician a raise. They studied your country’s intelligence documents and did their homework when it comes to my country’s bullshit.
(**UPDATE: a person connected me with the creator of this meme, but my previous paragraph stays in this post because I see some genius propaganda that makes me appreciate others’ understanding of our red, white, and blue bullshit.)
World: this meme here defines the American who pushes the “civil war” mumbo-jumbo more than any other group. He isn’t some military veteran. He thinks he’s a patriot but he wouldn’t lift a finger for this country. Agewise, he’s anywhere from his twenties to retirement age. He’s usually richer, but can be poorer—though the poorer ones believe that they’re going to be rich one day.
The type of guy in this meme is convinced that we’re on the brink of a civil war, but he’s not planning on doing any of the fighting. He’ll be raking in money from some scheme while the violence serves as a distraction.
When I think of Donald Trump’s hold on the modern Republican Party and I hear their pundits drone on about impending civil war, words from Vietnam Veteran and Medal of Honor recipient Bob Kerrey come to mind: Trump “sees all of us who went to Vietnam as fools. We were the suckers. We were the stupid ones. We were the ones that didn’t have the resources to be able to get out of the draft.”
That mojo runs rampant through the modern Right. Tucker Carlson is a by-product.
Like I said, this wasn’t going to be a long post. I started it this afternoon and had most of it written. Then, after eating some dinner, I saw that MSNBC’s Joy Reid ripped Tucker Carlson a new one. You have to watch her clip, Making America Worse. Seriously. Enough of my blog post. Besides, it’s finished. What are you still doing here? Go watch Joy’s awesomeness.
I also write fiction. I have two dark comedies available, Fearkiller (Volume 1) and Notes from Trillionaire Island: Fearkiller (Volume 2), as well as Revolutionizer Alpha, the first book in a sci-fi series. I also wrote a story about God. It was weird, but then I decided to make the story and its sequel free. And all of the sudden, it didn’t seem as weird. Writing about God is much less weird when you write about God without charging money for it.
