Town hall meeting disruptions could tilt the populace to the left

crying baby

As mentioned previously, in the 60’s Jerry Rubin said “kill your parents.” Things got quite radical then. But within a few years, the right wing was ascendant and the left mostly in tatters. That’s because the middle class got turned off by leftie howlings and went rightward. The right saw this as a huge organizing opportunity and took full advantage of it. It wasn’t until the past couple of years that the pendulum started moving leftwards again.

The same process could happen here. The hard right is howling in anger because, after eight years of having protection coming from the White House, they have little political mojo left So they’re having infant temper tantrums, banging their rattle on the high chair. All that’s needed is that the left and those having meetings have contingency plans and know how to deal with potential troublemakers.

But could things get violent? Well, this is America… But after the Kent State shootings Jerry Rubin said look they’re killing people, most of us can’t stand up to that and don’t want to either, me included. So we need to find a better way because very few of us genuinely want to live underground. The same is true of the right wing now.

Besides, all their howling and temper tantrums quite possibly could shift the middle class leftwards. And we should take full advantage of that.


  1. I feel sorry for you, Bob, if your think Jerry Rubin was some kind of leader for the Left. I was a participant in the ’60s and early ’70s flirtation with revolution, and Jerry Rubin was regarded by serious people in SDS and the incipient community movement as a clown. Perhaps you think somebody like Bill Clinton or even Rachel Maddow is representative of the Left. Obviously you can’t think past the false left-right paradigm of capitalist pseudopolitics. You even accept the word the ruling elite uses to disappear the working class, namely “the middle class”. You need to get it in your head that the Burgess Revolution has run its course: the Right and Left deputies of Amerikkka’s version of the Estates General are all now working feverishly to impoverish, imprison, and maybe even fatally vaccinate the U.S. working class (95% of us) because they plan to make their future money either with robots or fictitious capital in the derivatives market. A redundant workforce is a mass of useless eaters in the eyes of the people who are fronting Barack Obama as their chief marketing agent. That’s why the Obama-Emanuel healthcare plan is a plan for eugenics, for reducing “the nation’s” (read, the ruling class’s) healthcare costs by triaging the chronically ill and elderly out of any tax-supported health services. The poor unwashed masses are acting on impulse and on the only alternative politics they know courtesy of National Association of Manufaturers front groups like the John Birch Society. The plan of Obama’s handlers is to set the liberal and pseudo-left minority against their right-thinking class brothers and sisters in a strategy of divide and rule. It is worse than ghoulish to scoff and sit back laughing while the hard-working people of this country are put in the crosshairs because people who had the brains to know better didn’t enlighten them politically. Or maybe that’s what it means to be a bourgeois liberal.

    • Golly, you’ve gone so far to the left that you appear to be on the lunatic right, agreeing with Palin’s deranged accusation that Obama wants to do eugenics. Your black helicopter is waiting. Or are you just a troll?
