Have you heard!? The gays are planning a revolution! That's why they're pushing for stupid gun control and gay rights; they want to disarm sane conservatives so they can be killed, and then the liberals all want to become gay and stop having children, while they fuck animals, pee on God, and wait for humankind to come to an end. That sounds plausible, right? It seems many people believe this is what's going on, at least. Or, if not the end of humankind, many think the liberals at least want to destroy America, because why wouldn't American citizens want to destroy their own home?
Doesn't that just make you depressed? It should. That people believe homosexuality is some sort of sick and vile disease slowly infecting all liberals and that they believe stricter gun laws are akin to Nazi Germany is no lie, but I wish it were, because I keep losing faith in humanity. When I say I have no faith, I truly mean it. Even worse, conservatives keep bashing Obama for being a socialist. I keep scratching my head, wondering why that's a bad thing. I'll soon have scratched through to my brain; perhaps if I make myself brain damaged, I'll be able to understand. Er...
'Murica. Land of the free. Home of the brave. Slave colony of the poor. Okay, that was taking it too far. But some things annoy me. First, land of the free? America is hardly the freest country in the world; I'm sorry to break it to you, Americans. Especially since there are many good people over there, I really wish your country were the utopia many claim it is. Second, not many people in America seem to understand what socialism is. Third, there's no such thing as the "American" dream; becoming rich quickly is the worldwide dream, and it is nothing one can rely on to escape from poverty. Fourth, how someone can love and worship guns is beyond my understanding, especially since they also love Jesus, who was more hippie than any other hippie ever was. Fifth, what exactly is so bad about LGBT, other than that the Bible says it is?
Okay, so most people have this weird misconception about socialism. I see many conservatives claiming that socialism wants to destroy America. I don't even know how that would work, as socialism isn't a living being. And they don't seem to understand the difference between socialism and communism, which are NOT interchangeable. At any rate, when most people speak of socialism, they don't actually speak of socialism, but a social democracy. A social democracy is defined as a policy regime involving a universal welfare state and collective bargaining schemes within the framework of a capitalist economy. You see, countries like Sweden, which arguably are socialist and (by the way) have a higher standard of living than 'Murica, have a social democracy, which is still capitalism, but with the best ideas from socialism. And we have a strong middle class, and basically no poverty; that's not thanks to capitalism. Just wanted that cleared up, not that I expect any conservative will get it.
Back to the revolution of the gays. I've seen conservatives liken having to register their firearms to having to register their groceries. You know, food. Not food concealing a knife, but normal food. How seriously messed up do you have to be to think lethal tools of war and harmless items of food are on a level playing field? And what are they afraid of, anyway? Most people don't want to make guns totally illegal; they only want to have stricter laws. Who can justify carrying around a military-grade, fully automatic assault rifle with armor piercing bullets? And why? Just in case Obama and Putin join forces to command Satan's satanic army in a war against the United States of America?
It seems that's what they're thinking. I keep hearing how genocides have been preceded by stricter gun laws, as if to say Obama is preparing to kill all the white people in America. And plenty of countries have strict gun laws; in Great Britain, police officers don't even carry guns. Personally, I think law enforcement should carry weapons, but they still seem to be doing fine. In the twenty-first century, arming oneself with automatic rifles and rocket launchers is borderline psychotic. And to carry these weapons around, even at the playground, is fucking sick.
And then there's the LGBT issue. Conservatives seem to think LGBT people are the spawn of Satan and that they are getting ready for a revolution. In that case, I suppose it's good to have military-grade weaponry. But on the other hand, when you speak about LGBT people you may remove the first four letters, and all you have is people. It's true people have done horrible things to each other in the past, and still do, but here I thought the western world was a bit too civilized for civil war.
