Hubris and Icarus Down by the Potemkin Schoolyard

by O Society August 12, 2019

Someone recently called me a “hypocrite.”

To which I reply, Am I a hypocrite? Yes. So what?

So are you. So is every other human being on the face of the earth. It is a part of being human. Now go run off and play, preferably in some busy traffic.

Do-I-contradict-myself

The difference is I admit to being a real live human being who – despite my best efforts – does indeed contradict himself from time to time. It would help if everybody just admitted this and took all the power away from this witch hunt looking for an “honest man.”

There ain’t no such thing once we get down to the hardcore skeptic level. Not you, not me, not anybody. We are all fallible, though some pretend not to be able to see it in a mirror’s reflection.

Because we’re human and not gods. To say otherwise is the very definition of hubris. Fly Icarus, FLY!

Listen folks, Donald Trump in and of himself has absolutely nothing to offer anyone in the world. This is common knowledge. All he cares about is himself. Even the most bovine of his followers know this.

Therefore, the only way for Trump to win is for him to be “right” when he calls out frauds in a never ending attempt to deflect, project, and transfer blame for everything to all others not named “Donald Trump.”

The only way Trump wins is lowest common denominator. He simply cannot compete at any other level, as in one requiring high school debate team skills or integrity.

The DNC ran a fraud candidate, Hillary Clinton, thus playing to Trump’s only strength. She lost the only way it is possible to lose to a man like Trump, being a dishonest fake. Hillary Clinton cheated Bernie Sanders, and everyone knows it.

The NYTimes, CNN, Washington Post, MSNBC: they all chose to spread this Russia-gate religious belief as if they were spreading manure around the fields, waiting in breathless anticipation for their sunflowers to arise and take over the world.

Except it was fake.

The Russians are not the ones who elected Trump, Americans are. And the NYTimes and CNN and Washington Post and MSNBC became lowest common denominator bullshit peddlers – just like Fox News, InfoWars, Breitbart, Rush Limbaugh, etc – when they decided to spread the Russia-gate story and expected everyone to fall for such an obvious travesty of a mockery of a sham.

Trump won and will win again precisely because when he calls out his opponents, they humiliate themselves by playing his game the way he wants it played. Fraud. Spectacle. Banal bullshit. Cheating. Lying.

Once the DNC, John Brennan, the editors at all these newspapers and the CEOs of all of these cable TV news stations chose to sell out and feed America fake stories, Trump magically became “right.” They are indeed now peddlers of fake news. And they all did it to themselves. They threw their own credibility out the window with the pot they pissed in.cia-cia-why-cant-we-see-any-ufos-10-05-its-31955637.png

Make no mistake, Trump is an asshole who I wouldn’t trust to walk my dog around the block. I would not urinate on the man’s hairdo to put it out were it on fire. I’ll watch him burn at the stake like everybody else if they tie him to one some day. Get the blindfold and cigarette and last meal. It’s more than Donald Trump deserves.

However, he is right about all these institutions collectively being a two-dimensional storefront Dodge City Sergio Leone spaghetti Western Potemkin village. Yes, the Russians made the original Potemkin village back in the day, but guess what? Hollywood and Washington DC xeroxed the blueprints and built their own version.

Welcome to Disney! There is now and never has been any more truth to Russiagate than the latest Disney movie. Not only can it happen here, it is happening here now.

This is exactly how the demagogue rose to power. Because the powers that be chose willingly to play his game. Which entails the NYTimes and so on publishing National Enquirer level stories about Putin von Evil and his henchmen, “I”gor Trump.

Everyone who knows me is extremely tired of hearing me saying the following nonstop since sometime in 2015:

The only way Trump wins is if you play his game. He’s far too emotionally retarded, spiritually contorted, and mentally handicapped to be anything more than a slum lord WWF wrasslin’ reality TV celebrity game show host. This is true.

Yet he CAN and WILL win if you play his game, simply because he’s a persistent opportunist with a monomania for WINNING!!!

And the hits just keep on coming…

The mama pajama rolled out of bed
And she ran to the police station
When the papa found out he began to shout
And he started the investigation

It’s against the law
It was against the law
What the mama saw
It was against the law

The mama looked down and spit on the ground
Every time my name gets mentioned
The papa said, “oy, if I get that boy
I’m gonna stick him in the house of detention”

Well I’m on my way
I don’t know where I’m going
I’m on my way
I’m taking my time
But I don’t know where
Goodbye to Rosie, the queen of Corona

Seein’ me and Julio
Down by the schoolyard
Seein’ me and Julio
Down by the schoolyard

Whoa, in a couple days they come and take me away
But the press let the story leak
And when the radical priest
Come to get me released
We was all on the cover of Newsweek

And I’m on my way
I don’t know where I’m going
I’m on my way
I’m taking my time
But I don’t know where
Goodbye to Rosie, the queen of Corona

Seein’ me and Julio
Down by the schoolyard
Seein’ me and Julio
Down by the schoolyard
Seein’ me and Julio
Down by the schoolyard
