18h UTC; THURSDAY, 19 SEPTEMBER 2013: As if conspiracist types weren't already busy enough with their sustaining trope that President Obama is some class of closet Muslim manipulated by the likes of the Muslim Brotherhood to Undermine Thy Dear and Lovely Nation for the Caliphate, now they're pushing the canard that Monday morning's Unfortunate Events at the Washington Navy Yard didn't actually happen.

If that be the case, then, what explains the 12 martyred and the assailant himself shot by police?

What explaineth the police and EMS presence in the neighbourhood, as seen on TV news coverage?

Which brings up the likelihood that doublethink, most prominent of the Three Disciplines of Ingsoc as per George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty Four, is an essential and integral component of "Tea Party," "9/12" and "Christian Patriot" ideology and discipline as seeks to keep the rank-and-file in line with the prevailing ideological such.

Example: On the one hand, "Tea Party" and suchlike ideology holds that welfare is essentially "enslaving" the poor and other "parasite" types into embracing "Socialistic," "Communistic" or otherwise "un-American" thought and ideology ... but, on the other hand, these same sects insist that the only way to save the poor from themselves is through "wholeheartedly accepting" the implied interconnexion of ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe and Our National Character and Identity as a Sovereign Peculiar Among the Nations by Divine Will and Endowment. (Preferably to be achieved solely through channelling the supposed Volkseenheid of the "REAL AmeriKKKan" into "spontaneous, mighty, Christian Nationalist" movements and campaigns modelled on the Reddingsdaadbond movement in apartheid's naissence down South Africa way.)

Which, unfortunately, ignores certain Inconvenient Truths:
  1. The main reason many of the poor cannot find work, aside from the fact of jobs having been offshored "for tax reasons," is because of external circumstances not of their own choosing (including upbringing in dysfunctional households and/or economically-disadvantaged communities, limited educational options for developing proper career skills, &c.)
  2. About the only "jobs" stateside that the "government-dependent" have are more than likely scams as take advantage of their limited employability, their ignorance, their incredulity and their fear of "reprisals" if they dare speak out (i.e., "network marketing" and "work-from-home" plans as are more than likely time-limited and must love cooking up patsies to explain delays in payment).
  3. To expect the Lower Classes to empower themselves out of "enslaving government dependency" solely on their own initiative, as if implying that offering them tools or resources towards such otherwise noble and far-reaching ends as self-reliance and employabilty "risks perpetuating dependency," is expecting too much to begin with. Especially when such movements advancing this thought emphasise ideology at the expense of the practical, made worse by meetings reeking of Soviet-model "political instruction" or Scientologist techniques as could unwittingly aggravate psychoemotional harm (which these same Zealots and True Believers insist the "REAL AmeriKKKan" is incapable of suffering because they're--wait for it--GOOD CHRISTIANS!!)
Still, though, the idea of helping the poor achieve self-reliance through self-help (cf. the Raiffeisen cooperative model) is a worthwhile model and concept--so long as such is not tainted by right-wing ideology reinforced by jingoistic patriotism and David Barton's revisionist American History as seems right out of apartheid South Africa from the Afrikaner perspective. And emphasises practicality from the get-go, not by placing ideology as an "essential priority."

And the Jersey Shore can do without Westboro Baptist-stylee prolefeed insisting that all which is befalling same of late is a show of Divine Wrath and Judgment Upon Thy Dear and Lovely Land for Straying from His Divinely-Ordained Prophecy for same by condoning homosexuality, diversity and multiculturalism in Defiance of His Divine Will: As if last fall's serious destruction of Seaside Heights and Seaside Park, NJ in particular by Megastorm Sandy, followed by a hasty reconstruction of its Boardwalk and beaches to get ready for the past summer season, wasn't awful enow, fire (now determined to be of electrical origin ultimately attributed to Sandy's destructive effects) destroyed some 50 businesses along the aforementioned Boardwalk in both communities last Thursday.

And you have to wonder if the agenda of 'n Volk red homself ("a people rescues itself") as would ultimately beget South Africa's depravities of apartheid can be the Last and Only Hope for the Jersey Shore, especially with insurance claims likely to be dishonoured or otherwise delayed. Ideology alone can't save a people, nor empower them into self-reliance; you also have to include the practical, give them the tools and resources and motivation towards that end.

And how exactly would such be looked upon as "Communism," pray?
