Afflicting The Comfortable Is Now Our Job, Because The Media Are Unwilling And Incapable

Comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable was coined to describe the role of newspapers, which is laughably naive in today's hyper-partisan media world. In fact it is often just the opposite, and media attacks on a certain category of "everyman" is a frequent topic on this blog.

Absent an honest fourth estate, the responsibility for what used to be their job falls upon us, and Mittens The Utah Weather-vane bore the brunt of it at what should have been (at least in his mind) a comfortable circle-jerk of the GOPe elites.

Mitt Romney Booed During Speech at Utah GOP Convention

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) took the stage at the Utah GOP convention on Saturday, where he was booed by several of those in attendance.

Several in attendance also shouted out, calling Romney a “communist” and a “traitor.”

“I’m a man who says what he means, and you know I was not a fan of our last president’s character issues,” Romney said as several from the crowd expressed their distaste with his job performance.

“You can boo all you like,” Romney added. “I’ve been a Republican all of my life. My dad was the governor of Michigan and I was the Republican nominee for president in 2012.”

Which in his twisted and entitled version of the world means that he is entitled to nothing more or less than hagiographic introductions at political events and significant cash-flow from the rubes. How DARE they criticize the great and powerful Mittens!

The original, from the Old Testament's Book Of Psalms is even more interesting:

27: With a pure one, You show Yourself pure, but with a crooked one, You deal crookedly.

28: For You deliver a humble people, and You humble haughty eyes.

That's a bit more aggressive than the watered down 20th century version. It means the gloves should come off, and underhanded political machinations should be met with equally underhanded responses. It is far too late to take a principled stance when our country's existence is at stake.

Play by their rules...or no rules at all, because winning this is our only option. That means that in a few years, Mitt Romney will look back fondly at this week's booing and wax poetic about how civilized it used to be.

8 The Establishment believed that there would be a "Blue Wave" in 2020 which is why they were willing to stab Trump in the back by allowing the Dems to steal the Presidential Election: they wanted Trump to be supposedly repudiated by massive GOP losses. Instead Trump carried the party to gain seats in the House, and very likely would have held the Senate if Mitch hadn't openly thrown the GA election by refusing to pass the stimulus and giving the Dems and weapon. All because they believed that things would go back to "normal" once Trump was gone.

They are in for a hard, ugly, and painful lesson.

13 I was darkly amused that in his Hemingway biography, Ken Burns featured John McCain. Obviously, you can't have a serious literary discussion without including McCain. Further, McCain said that his favorite of Hemingway's characters was Robert Jordan from For Whom the Bell Tolls. In fact, he saw himself as Robert Jordan. Well, a communist fighting for communism, I guess it makes sense.

22 I'm definitely to the point where I'm willing to hand Democrats Senate seats to get rid of people like Romney or Murkowski if we have to. I used to be the guy that thought we just had to take a punch in the face from the "McCain" types, but no more. When you have Republicans impeaching a sitting Republican President, I think they are the ones with the problem, not us.

I like the idea of a "Patriot" Party being rolled out in a few places where someone like Romney is otherwise going to be there forever.

That being said, I'm not really interested in the future of conservatism being all about Trump. I want to find the next leader.

GA voters sat out the run-off in massive numbers because the "stimulus" wasn't passed quickly (the 2nd one)??

At the rally, remember the crowd chanting "Defend Trump!", spontaneously, with an intensity that made things very awkward, as it was clear the 2 Senate nominees were almost after-thoughts?

42 Afflicting The Comfortable Is Now Our Job

----------

It was never the media's job, though. It was their job to *report the damn news.*

And if they had just fucking done that, the comfortable would never have been able to become corrupt enough to require affliction. But the media identified with the Left wing power-elite politically, and wanted to join them in their comfort in the master class.

So they covered up and perpetuated that corruption. And they have joined them. And, G-d willing, they will all face an affliction, together, that makes the Devil turn his face away in horror.

66 I think a lot more than 1% sat out the run-off in GA - somebody here must have the actual numbers. And unless the filibuster for general Senate business goes away, the GOP has a veto over any legislative vandalism from the idiots in power.

Noticed this at the match yesterday. Understandably, most people cling to party labels and broad often meaningless terms ("conservatism"). They don't know how things actually work, or why they don't or do happen, and just rely on "their" team.

And in a binary 2-party "system", YOU HAVE TO BEAT THE OTHER TEAM, can't let them get control, so ..... you have to put up with literally any kind of behavior from "your" team. Even if it leads to essentially similar results as would ensue from the "other team" doing their worst.

And the inertia of changing "your" team. And the downward slope is set.

Biden is great at lying, hypocrisy, and hiding his sins. Trump didn't bother. And now that he's not up to those shenanigans any more, he doesn't bother apologizing or bragging about his goodness, because he has other things on his mind.

And, I think he refused to bow to their rules and club bylaws. He wouldn't do things they way they said, wouldn't get along, wouldn't go through the initiation process. Was always the outsider.

79 If Trump - obviously the most effective and successful president in decades - didn't "play well" in AZ, and a vapid twink like Rubio would have, then there's your problem - an idiotic GOP electorate. But we knew that about AZ already (McCain, Flake, even Doucey, sort of the poster boy for empty corporate type).

Good point. Bush Sr. tried to win in 92 on the character issue. And 25 years later, the Bush GOPe tried it against Trump.

1) Boy, they do think highly of their own character!

2) Same script, same failure. Maybe this is just a bunch of losers.

They put forward 2 very GoPe candidates and then told us (well the Georgia us in this case) that if we don't vote for them all that happens is "our" fault.

But sure, the GoPe is totes gonna let us get some candidates in that represent our interests and lead the party if we just vote harder next time. Look at how they are holding the football, they obviously feel bad about pulling it away all the other times and so would never do it again, right?

I think if we ever finally get realistic, valid totals, we're going to see that President Trump won by the biggest landslide and the most disproportionate numbers in American history. Make Reagan's win look pathetic.

He had a booming economy, support from sectors Republicans haven't gotten since the early 1900s, and his opponent was a corrupt, nasty old girl-sniffing man hiding in his basement and showing heavy signs of dementia.

Even by the false, twisted numbers the official count gave us, President Trump got more votes than any presidential candidate in America's two century history, except for what we're supposed to believe Biden got.

He got ten million more votes than ANY ONE BEFORE HIM. With all the negative press, with all the impeachment crap, etc.

Umm.

Biden has been an openly mocked buffoon, for decades. His casual lying - for which the wiggle-room was always acknowledged to be that he's pretty dumb - has been mocked for decades. His corruption while VP is 19th Century, beyond anything seen in the Beltway in generations.

Biden is not good at anything, liked by nobody, mocked by all. The systemic collapse of the media - and the citizenry - are uncomfortable topics but pretending they're not the problem is silly.

Even the bluest of states though had intense Trump support.

Trump just did not play well in more affluent suburbs in AZ was my read. But he played better in working class and rural enclaves.

Mormons also had a jihad against Trump led my Romney and Flake. After Utah, AZ has the highest percent of Mormons in USA.

Yeah but what I mean is that Biden plays the game in public very carefully: he says the right things in speeches, he says the right things in interviews.

Trump is just himself all the time, and cares nothing for political wrangling, so he didn't play a game -- at least, not a game they're familiar with.

So far, I've held to that.

Assuming Murky doesn't get primaried again (which she will be), I won't vote for her either. I'll pick whichever third party I deem is most worthy of a ballot slot, and vote for their candidate.

If I were Cuck Romney, I'd be doing everything I could to make people forget 2012, not reminding them of it. Throwing an election to Gaylord isn't really all that good of a look.

125 I have yet to see anything even resembling a serious analysis of the 2020 "results", taking into account the various anomalies. Talking just top-line "results", and how they don't jibe.

The meat of the matter lies in specific examination of actual ballots, whether they were legitimate (Matt Braynard's project is one part of this, but there are other aspects, including of course the tabulation issue, which seems impossible to sort out in detail). Maricopa County could be informative.

But recall that the presidential result turned on just a few places, almost all of which had very anomalous, or suspicious, goings-on. Clark County, Wayne County, Milwaukee and Dane counties, Philadelphia, Fulton - as well as Maricopa.

The "pause" has never been explained - has anyone even tried to explain or dismiss it? That's kind of amazing. The absurd turn-out patterns and margin patterns in WI - never addressed or explained. The video of the guy in GA checking for a box under a table at the counting center, then giving a celebratory fist in the air when he's confirmed it's there - WTF was that??

Voters despised Hillary, were sick of the radical crap the left kept pushing, and rode a wave of "you are not putting pervert men in my daughter's locker room you sick #$(&#$!!!" to Trump victory.

143 The Obamacare thing... Republicans ran for years on "give us power and we'll repeal it" while several times a year offering bill after bill to congress to do just that. Sure, the Dems tabled each bill and killed it, but they plainly demonstrated that they had the legislation written and were ready to use it.

And what happened?

They got control of both houses of congress and burned those bills, never looking at them again. GOP apologists here, including some who have vanished recently, claimed they just couldn't get anything done, that they had to get a bill together.

THEY DIDN'T EVEN TRY WITH THE BILLS THAT THEY HAD ALREADY WRITTEN.

Conclusion: they never wanted to stop Obamacare, they just wanted to run and fundraise on it.

150 My favorite, in this regard: *BIDEN* campaign data team said Trump
needed 53% of election day votes to win PA ..... (drum roll) .... he got
61%. WTF?

We know Trump improved in basically every demographic except a slight decline in old, wealthy white voters (hi Karen!) So one of two things are true
1) Biden got every single eligible voter to the polls in the Big Blue cities, including millions who never voted before, their votes were counted after Trump votes by accident, and all the oddities in reporting were just...happy little accidents.
2) Biden's people leveraged his complete control of the big blue cities to stuff the ballot boxes.

154 I still believe that Romney won the real vote count. The Obama administration made it kind of clear that they were rigging the election by telling the press not to worry, that it will look like they are losing in early voting in the hardest east coast Obama bastions, but would catch up later.

216 Oregon had a recent republican governor and republican control of the legislature when the vote by mail thing passed. Democrats have taken over the legislature and been elected governor every single time since then, without fail.

Several times the governor's seat has been a close battle, with the GOP candidate winning until they did did the "Final ballot count" which always ballots from Multnomah County, read: Portland Oregon. Strange how they can't manage to count the ballots from the biggest urban center in the state until the last minute, but can get those ballots from Jordan Valley, Oregon shipped in and counted right away.

227 The truth about the stolen election *will* eventually be accepted fact. But the *whole truth* will never come out. By the time people are willing to speak frankly about this period, the current regime will have fallen, and it will be a matter for the historians to discuss. Much of the primary sources have already been destroyed, and more will be destroyed as the regime vacates their seats of power.

It will be one of those things like the Reichstag Fire or the political testament of von Hindenburg, or the Night of the Long Knives - things that everyone accepts were Nazi frauds, but can only reconstruct obliquely by secondary sources and circumstantial evidence, because the hard evidence has been burned.

I hope you didn't watch closing arguments in the Chavuin trial. The prosecution showed Floyd - the jailbird and junkie - as a young child, one who liked to cuddle with his mother, and who had people who loved him.

Imagine.

Presumably Chauvin was born middle-aged, and hatched from an egg, never cuddled with his mother, and had no one who ever loved him.

But Collins has been there for ages along with others voting their happy way a long time, and whenever they come up "It is the most important election ever" and since the incumbent tends to be on the ticket as the game is rigged toward them, they keep getting voted in lest the other team win, even if they tend to run many of the same plays toward the same goals, just slower and "better managed."

The Democrats uniformly favor the losers, the criminals, the lazy, the useless, the illegal aliens, the perverts, etc. of society over law-abiding, taxpaying citizens.

Why? It's part of Marxist theology, deriving ultimately from Rousseau. Man is naturally good, so any social pathologies have been caused by society. Change society, no more social pathologies.
