Celebrating Our Nation’s Glorious Defeat Over A Website
June 8, 2011 3 Comments
It’s easy to forget now, but we mustn’t lose sight that just a few years ago this country was essentially taken over and destroyed by the nonprofit/website PNAC. As you’ll recall from the billions of photons expended writing/exposing PNAC at the time, this website is the website that made us do The Iraq War (which we must never forget was wrong). It also unleashed The Neocons across the entire country, to infiltrate virtually all of our institutions and public life to such an extent that literally no one with any sort of education could get through a conversation without mentioning
The JThe Neocons. The Neocons’ main message, as we were to learn, was that the United States should kill everyone else, except Israel, in order to give them democracy. And so, tragically, that is precisely what we did. Finally there was also Halliburton, which wanted us to kill everyone else primarily so that they could make a killing installing Carl’s Jr. franchises onto all the forward operating military bases we would be planting everywhere (in order to kill). Something like that.
Which makes it all the more amazing that now, in 2011, just a few short years after all of the preceding was totally true, literally none of it is anymore. (After all, no one ever mentions it/complains about any of it anymore.) So let us survey this apparent great victory of ours over the existential menace represented by the above totally valid concerns that everyone was hysterically expressing circa 2004-2007. Thanks largely to the efforts of (bloggers?), we have overcome all of those terrible menaces outlined above to such an extent that at the time of this writing in 2011, I can happily report, that as far as I can tell (from the lack of hyperventilating about them): Halliburton is in retreat. The Neocons have literally not been heard from or about since approximately November 2008. And the website PNAC is, as far as I can tell, back to being just a website instead of the world-spanning espionage, infiltration, extortion and terror ring that it once was.
In particular, we still have military presences in both Afghanistan and Iraq but now no one gives a rat’s ass because it’s not due to PNAC/The Neocons (anymore) like it totally actually was (at the time). Indeed, we’re even fighting a whole ‘nother war “on” Libya just for the hell of it, and nobody can even articulate why, but nobody gives a rat’s ass about that either. Because, the website has been vanquished. PNAC, I mean. So it’s all good.
The only mystery to me in all this is why isn’t the lefty blogosphere more energetically touting its glorious defeat over that website and all the other menaces they were always going on about? Evidently none of them are problems anymore, so the lefty bloggers evidently won, and saved this great nation of ours (with their blogging). Good for them!
All I can say is bravo, brave blogging sirs. Bravo.
