18h33 UTC; TUESDAY, 10 APRIL 2012: One thing as may be worth watching in the greater runup to Indecision 2012 would have to be the possible ideological parallels between what passes for the GOP/"Tea Party" socioeconomic agenda and the campaign for Afrikaner Socioeconomic Empowerment of the late 1930's.

Especially when it emergeth that the common denominators are:
  • a hard-wired insistence that only ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe "gebore ons die Volk, die Volk te doen" can best save the poor from "enslavement" through State welfare or charity;
  • only National Unity and Cohesion, reinforced by appeals to Class Consciousness, will save Our Dear Beloved Nation from itself;
  • 'n Volk red homself ("a people rescues itself"), and then solely by its own resources and will (preferably through a careful and conscientious application of the disciplines of Reddingsdaad, Helpmekaar and Volkseenheid);
  • the whole is at once "Christian" in both motive and purpose; and
  • there is a mutual interconnexion between Religious Liberty and Ekonomesie Vryheid, &c., requiring that the defence of one be seen as that of the other, and vice versa.
As if that weren't enough, perhaps it was time to start asking how exactly the following are essential to the defence and maintenance of ekonomesie vryheid, &c.:
  • Racism
  • Sexism
  • Homophobia
  • Anti-Semitism
  • Socioeconomic polarisation and disparities
  • Xenophobic hyper-nationalism (cf. North Korea's "people-centred" Juche Idea)
  • Use of the State as an agent of sadistic fanaticism in furtherance of the preceding
(Never mind that the Afrikaner idea of economic empowerment, in its desire to create a new Volkskapitalisme as part and parcel thereof, saw the creation of wealth to be secondary to a greater desire to empower a heretofore "dispossessed," "sunken spiritually and materially" even, people through being entitled a greater share of socioeconomic control.)

If ever there was need to demonstrate why the ongoing boycott of Rush Limbaugh and >his advertisers (or what remains of them) needs to continue ... not to mention applying continuing pressure on stations still carrying his radio programme to pull same from their lineup posthaste ... it would have to be an ongoing pattern of pandering to latent racism in his listeners, as graciously documented by Media Matters for America.

The which should be enough to continue taking The Oxycontin Boar to task (politely, of course) over such perversion of the power and intrusion of the "morally superior," ekonomesie vryheid, &c.-supported, AmeriKKKan radio airwaves as technically belong to the American People in trust.

As for the delusions about the danger posed by The People Our Parents Warned Us About, and the opinions they expressed getting public exposure and notice, one of the more pathetic memes used as part of this scare prolefeed is the notion of our kind somehow being "unwittingly influenced by Communist, Fascist or Nazi thinking" throughout. And yet all the while, we the targeted aren't expected to know or comprehend essential ideological, socioeconomic even, differences between the three except such which Fox News and conservative talkback radio prolefeed push upon us (and expect us to accept as fact without question or reservation).

If this be so, then, how can We, The People Our Parents Warned Us About actually be giving aid and comfort to Communists, Fascists and/or Nazis without knowing what their articles of faith really are?

(Meanwhile, Your Correspondent is thinking about moving, as it were, the T-shirt shop in connexion with this blog to Zazzle.com, to allow for a wider selection of designs in the merchandise and ephemera on offer--including the QR codes for certain compoments of this New Explosion of Pedigreed Bull. As for businesses who may be looking for goodwill-building ephemera themselves, consider the following:
Promotional Magnets Promotional Bags Promotional T Shirts Promotional Pens
