Is There A New “Axis Of Idiocy Loose In The United States?
Opinion
Whenever I read into the wild meanderings  and mist-laden visions of some authors that I consider to be far right wing radical extremist revisionists or when I read into one or more kinds of the new really far-out-takes on conservatism, the term, “Axis Of Idiocy” comes to mind whether it is a fair assessment or not – - – it comes to mind.
My whole concept about this is based in part on what I perceive to be some mis-informed political enthusiasts who really do not seem to know what they are talking about because the information they brand as “fact” does not usually line up with anything that I have ever been taught and quite possibly that anyone else has ever been taught either.
I find that the so-called “facts” that a lot of these writers attempt to present in support of their arguments against the government and/or the president and/or American Tradition did not really exist before the advent of contemporary far right wing myth media on the internet and the airwaves and in some specialized print media which have surfaced on the national scene in the past few years.
I do not buy the pathetic argument advanced by some who would make themselves into constitutional scholars and experts or some who try to convince others they are well-versed and well-qualified in the nuances of governmental sciences and practices because a lot of these self-professed “experts” may or may not have done anything greater or more renowned than get themselves some notoriety on some broadcast or they may have managed to write a book or two spouting wild philosophies and theories that talk trash but prove nothing except that they are either the blind leading the blind or they have some – - – agenda – - – that opposes in one degree or another what we have all come to know as “The American Way.”
Some of the true craziness in political interpretation has only taken place within a generation and little or none of it was ever heard of before perhaps the late 60s or the mid 70s.
The nature of this misleading intellectual beast can best be summed up by pointing out that while it sounds righteous, holy, positive and good, it usually leads ultimately down a very ruthless and dictatorial path in the final analysis – - a path that seems to be designed to overthrow everything we have always known as America and replace it with some religious-sounding moralistic psuedo-democratic theocracy where there is, in the end, nothing but a population of elitists who possess all the wealth and the power and another sub-population who have been subjugated by the elite and whose task and destiny it is only to serve their elitist masters.
The name of this beast as far as I am concerned is “Right Wing Elitist Radical Extremist  Conservatism” and it’s most distinguishing features and most easily recognized attributes are found in its insistence in serving the moneyed power structure at the expense of what has become known in some political circles as the hapless 47%.
The entire thesis of this thing that I view as a  Godless political entity that seeks to consume and devour whoever and whatever it can for its own pernicious causes is that we have all become nothing but one big conglomeration of “Makers” and “Takers” or “Those who are willing to work and those who are not” or some other convolution of reality  - – - claims that we are all becoming all too familiar with because of the incessant nature of the propaganda that has been preaching this bullshit doctrine for nigh onto 40 years now.
This political beast is subtle (as the Bible would say) more subtile than any other beast in the field and it operates from a standpoint of the purest and most persistent negativist propaganda that promises freedom and liberty all wrapped up in what I consider to be a really dangerous form of regressionism.
It’s enemies seem to the anyone who has not made themselves wealthy and I think it preaches a quietly subtle doctrine of sedition disguised as all kinds of parodies on constitutional amendments and rights and other such meaningless contrived pseudo patriotic drivel.
There is a saying worth remembering and it might help people to recognize the beast when it growls it’s tear-jerking false sentiments and that saying goes something like this:
When tyranny finally comes, it will come wrapped in the flag and it will have a Bible stuck somewhere up its rear end.”  (Or words to that effect.)
In my view, the really good thing about all this is that there are still good and truly righteous people who recognize the signs of this horror when they appear and they take steps to reject their advances – - – steps like winning presidential elections as they did in 2012 and in so doing clearly rejecting the advances of the political harlotry of which I have been speaking in these few paragraphs.
In my own personal view, the greatest saving grace for The United States the world has come to know and love is that the greater mass of The American People are a lot smarter and more cognitive than that which I have referred to herein as “The Axis Of Idiocy.”
