00h UTC; SATURDAY, 7 JULY 2012: So much for RepubliKKKan Presidential wannabe Mitt Romney, in response to flat unemployment and jobs-creation figures released this morning, claiming that "this is a time for AmeriKKKa to choose"--which, to his campaign and the "social benefit" SuperPAC's for and on behalf thereof, means a "people-centred" model of socioeconomic recovery expected to be spontaneous, wholehearted and yet holistic, the guiding principle thereof being the Afrikaans expression 'n Volk red homself ("a people rescues itself"), the cri d'coeur of Afrikaner nationalists in the late 1930's seeing the Afrikaner as a "persecuted" people "sunken spiritually and materially" under the yoke of British influence and rule in the then-Union of South Africa (not to mention the motto of the Reddingsdaadbond ["Rescue Pact League"], which from 1939 until 1957 sought to empower the Afrikaner culturally and socioeconomically through manufactured appeals to ethno-national unity encapsulate in the Afrikaans term Volkseenheid, "organic unity of a people," not to mention seeing the Reddingsdaadbond as a Mission from God).

We all know that the conservative agenda towards the poor is one expecting the "REAL AmeriKKKan" to pretend that such cannot exist because No Good Christian willingly accepts welfare or charity without applying doublethink about what it would do in the long run to his pride, his character, his values and those of his Volk (cf. apartheid South African socioeconomic policy glossing over the whole issue of "poor whiteism" as brought about the whole business of 'n Volk red homself and its byproducts in the first place, in particular the "people-centred" Volkskapitalisme ["people's capitalism"] expected to place socioeconomic uplift through jobs creation and training for the poor above the mere creation of wealth at the heart of traditional capitalist models).

In short, calling for replacing the "pious sentiment" of charity heretofore applied towards the poor with the "jingling coin" of wages and profit as can be translated into purchasing power itself expected to be leveraged constantly into "productive capital" to sustain this "people-centred" socioeconomic rescue.

Said "productive capital" expected to be a hybrid of "loan funds" unto High-Yield Investment Plans (HYIP's), replete with the basest appeals to True Patriot Love Thou Dost in Us Command up there with certain pseudo-religious "ministries" appealing for viewer donations and then diverting such to inapproriate use without proper justification (cf. the emerging Trinity Broadcasting Network scandal and the revelations therefrom).

Not to mention all manner of "educational campaigns" tending heavily to drunken, platitude-heavy rants as emphasise the parroting of such "motivational" memes as "work SMARTER, not HARDER!" and "don't dig for gold--SELL THE SHOVELS!" common among the worst sort of multi-level marketing (MLM) and "forced-matrix" schemes, rather than pushing practical, "hands-on," "proactive" solutions.

The which calls to mind the following, found in Facebook, as should serve as advice to aid in deciphering "Tea Party" and other right-wing prolefeed tactics and antics:

And Another Thing (to borrow from the old Chickenman radio serial): If conservative Zealotry and True Belief is as hard-wired as they are in insisting that 'n Volk red homself, then what exactly precludes their taking a serious, proactive, holistic even, role towards putting the ideal into action (as in promoting mutual self-help initiatives among the poorer sort such as cooperatives and friendly societies, in line with their articles of faith in this respect)? Ask this of your local John Bircher, Elmer Gantryite, Ayn Randite, "Tea Party" and suchlike types, preferably through letters to the editor of local gazettas and blog posts calling them out for such doublethink as heretofore illustrated.
