Hey, Frum! You Working This Hard?



The 'reasonable' neocon, and 'Axis of Evil' moniker-maker, David Frum, has landed on his feet.

In the pages of Newsweek, no less.

And recently Mr. Frum, who is a dual Canadian/American citizen, placed himself just a little to the center of the stupid by appearing to take on Rush Limbaugh by comparing him with, and/or putting him on the same page as, Barack Obama.


You did read that right.

But it's even worse than that, because if you actually pay attention to every single one of Mr. Frum's words you will see his codswallop for what it really is.

Which is craptacular codswallop of the most cretinous kind (ie. the kind that helps start wars of naked aggression based on lies and total fabrications. Some call this 'Jedi-Mind Games'. Me, I call it evil, death, and destruction-inducing propaganda nonpareil).

By way of example, have a quick look at the following apparently 'reasonable' paragraph buried just beneath the lede of Frum's latest bit of flim-flammery:

"On the one side, the president of the United States: soft-spoken and conciliatory, never angry, always invoking the recession and its victims. This president invokes the language of "responsibility," and in his own life seems to epitomize that ideal: He is physically honed and disciplined, his worst vice an occasional cigarette. He is at the same time an apparently devoted husband and father. Unsurprisingly, women voters trust and admire him."

Did you get all that?.....Because if you were just skimming, you might not have actually noticed all the subliminal clap-trap embedded in the modulated voice of (anti-)reason.

Stuff like the following:

"Always invoking the recession and its victims...."
Now, Mr. Frum, why, exactly should Obama not do that? Are not real people really hurting from this thing..... A thing that became inevitable due to the nefarious neanderconian de-regulation that was further aided and abetted by your gang's duplicitousness, greed and avarice?..... Let's quite right to the quick here..... Are you slagging Mr. Obama because he has made it a real priority to try and fix/ameliorate this thing before it hurts even more real people that can't bail out on parachutes made of gold that were given to them by real fools (ie. more of your gang)? Because, if you, as your words imply, are actually doing so, you can go to hell. Alternatively, you can go to Stephen Harper's CBC, whichever is hottest.

"This president invokes the language of "responsibility," and in his own life seems to epitomize that ideal....."
Seems to......? What does that mean, exactly, Mr. Frum? Because it sure seems to imply that his life might not not actually be one of "responsibility"? Do you have any evidence of that Mr. Frum? Or, as Obama once shouted, unmodulated, at an obfuscating Waterhead named Wayne Allard just before he kicked his ass across the Senate floor, 97-0..... "Hey, Allard! You working this hard?" In other words, if you have no evidence, you can go to hell Mr. Frum. Again.

"He is physically honed and disciplined, his worst vice an occasional cigarette...."
Ya, well, OK....Because even a blind pig in the perpetual employ of a Dark Prince who does not really exist (really!?) stumbles over a caramelized truffle (ie. in hell?) once in awhile.

He is at the same time an apparently devoted husband and father.
Apparently?..... Again, Mr. Frum, where's your evidence that he is not. Where, again, is even one single, shrivelled shred of evidence? Then again, being a most reasonable Pig in the employ of The Dark Prince, I guess we have to give you some credit. After all, you did manage to restrain yourself from asking when, precisely, President Obama stopped beating his wife (and/or his kids). So, and there are no ifs, ands or buts on this one without evidence Mr. Frum... Because without it, you can go to hell over and over and over again.

And don't come back.

Because you've done enough to help ruin the lives and livelihoods of millions of people already.


Look, I know these are harsh words, even harsher words than I used here. Or here. But if Jon Stewart could call a trifling little piece of shite like Tucker Carlson out for 'hurting America' with his stupidness, I think it is our right.....No....I'll go one step further......I think it is our call out professional obfuscators like Mr. Frum who hide the truth to the true detriment of all reasonable thinking people everywhere. And besides, as a Canadian, I feel nothing but shame and embarrasment for the damage and the carnage that he and his have wrought, world-wide.
Finally, if you've ever wondered how proMedia folks (as opposed to comedians like Mr. Stewart) can expose professional obfuscators like Mr. Frum for what they really are, watch this.
