Ted Rall, the mealy-mouthed leftwingnut cartoonist, hooked up with liberal commentator Dylan Ratigan, and fantasized on how to start another revolution—Bolshevik style.
Isn’t this the kind of accusation they level at the Tea Party?
Via Big Government.
On Dylan Ratigan’s show, liberal cartoonist Ted Rall, author of the “Anti-American Manifesto”, suggests violence may be the only way to save America.
Ratigan himself asks “Are things in our country so bad, that it may be time for a revolution? The answer obviously is ‘yes’ , the only question is ‘how to do it?”
Verum Serum has posted an excerpt from the Ted Rall book ‘The Anti-American Mainfesto” in which he calls for a violent socialist movement from within, here’s a little bit:
“We are here because the U.S. is going to end soon. There’s going to be an intense, violent, probably haphazard struggle for control. It’s going to come down to us versus them. The question is: What are you going to do about it?…
Christian fundamentalists, the millennial end-of-theworlders obsessed with the Left Behind series about the End Times, neo-Nazi racists, rural black-helicopter Michigan Militia types cut from the same inbred cloth as Timothy McVeigh, allied with “mainstream” gun nuts and right-wing Republicans, have been planning, preparing, and praying for the destruction of the “Godless,” “secular” United States for decades. In the past, they formed groups like the John Birch Society and the Aryan Nations. Now the hard Right has a postmodern, decentralized non-organization organization called the Tea Party.”
Link to Eyeblast video:
By the way, McVeigh was an agnostic, and did not have a supporting network of like-minded wackjobs, like for instance, the Islamic muslim fundamentalists who want us all dead.
The kind of revolution preached by Rall has nothing to do with the Tea Party-supported principles like that of America’s founders, but one that has a hammer and sickle tattooed on its ass.
What really bothers douchebags like him, is that most of America will not cooperate with the far-Left takeover of our economy, health care, and intrusion into our private lives. Our government was hijacked by Dem Left radicals who shit on the Constitution and spit invectives at patriots who objected.
Those patriots started a revolution of their own; by protesting, then ousting the ruling Dem autocracy; all within the framework of the 1st Amendment.
Rall is best known for this trash, reflecting his contempt for the military:
And some pretty racist depictions for a “tolerant” liberal, in which he portrays Condi Rice as GW’s “house nigga”:
Rall and I had a little exchange over the matter on one of my posts. (see comments)
Follow up post:
I like Gregg Gutfeld’s response to Rall’s bat-shit craziness:
So a while back the Washington Post asked cartoonists what they thought of the “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day” campaign, which was a protest against radical Muslims who threaten to kill anyone they believe has offended their prophet. One scribbler, Ted Rall, moaned, “While most [cartoonists] vigorously support free speech, many are uncomfortable with the idea of provoking the anger of devout Muslims with no other intent than to provoke anger.”
See how he made it about provoking anger, instead of free speech?
Anyway, I bring this up because this is the same Ted Rall who now appeared on Dylan Ratigan’s show, to make a case for violent revolution in the United States. Yes, the guy who cowers in the face of intolerant extremists, is now egging on violent attacks against pudgy retirees in tricorn hats.
In the show, Ratigan asks, “Are things in our country so bad that it might actually be time for revolution?”
Of course, the answer is yes, and it requires “violence or at least the threat thereof.” Then Rall comes in – saying violence is a last resort. But – one he really, really likes!
An excerpt from his book:
“A war is coming. At stake: our lives, the planet, freedom, living. The government, the corporations, and the extreme right are prepared to coalesce into an Axis of Evil. Are you going to fight back? Will you do whatever it takes, including taking up arms?… I want you to see that revolt is a good idea, and that it has never been more necessary. I also want you to size up the opposition… They will never get weaker. We have as good a chance at taking them on as ever.”
So here’s a weenie who won’t stand up to a real threat, but now urges violence against tea partiers, business folks, your parents, whoever.
Basically he wants to kill or imprison anyone who isn’t a failed, bitter cartoonist.
Me, I can’t wait to see Ted take to the streets, coming at us in his tweed coat and sweat pants ensemble, swinging his NPR tote bag, armed with hackey sacks and yoga mats.
But I have a feeling it aint gunna happen. Advocating phony “revolution” is something you only see from twigs like Ted.
All sound and fury, signifying dick.
I have my own message for Rall:
Bring it, mutherfucker.
