BDS: Is It Really About Bush?

Ogre brings up an interesting point

But BDS is completely different. These people are openly opposed to Bush personally. These people blame Bush personally for things like global warming. When Bush leaves office, there is going to be a vast hole in these people’s lives. Like most people, they will need to seek something to fill that vast hole. I do not know what they will do with themselves. We can hope and pray that they find something good with which to fill that hole (like Jesus), but I suspect that will not be the case. Instead, I suspect they will become zealots for some other religion — like environmentalism or global warming.

What do you think these people will do with themselves?

From my point of view, I believe that BDS is not so much about being ant-everythingBush, but about being against everything that does not fit in their narrow world view. And being unhinged, of course. W just happens to be an easy target, mostly having to do with being the President and a Republican. Add in the close 2000 election along with the continuing expansion of the internet to allow the wonkadoodles to spread their insane messages, and it became about Bush.

Had McCain won the primaries, then 2000 elections, especially if it was as close, and had the same issues, we would have had MDS. We would probably have had slurs similar to those as about Reagan. Too old, he must be getting senile. He probably naps half the day away. Add in some thoughts feelings about the North Vietnamese messing up his mind, talking slowly, and the other stuff that might set them off, and you have an easy target. Maybe not quite as much, as the media sort of liked McCain back in 2000, but, from the nutroots, big time.

But, again, he would simply be an excuse to direct their seething anger, which is the norm. We can already see this starting with folks like Fred!, Rudy, and Mitt. If one of them wins in 2008, come 2009, their derangement will transfer to that Republican. Anything and everything Conservative, or, neocon, if you will, is a target. The president, as the "leader" of the GOP and neocons, is just the focal point. And Bush is an easy target. The way he walks, the way he talks, the way he makes up words, and stumbles on others. Plus, the way he refuses to fight back.

With the rise of the internet in the late 90’s, and the ease of creating a website and spreading the word, people who were unhinged were able to spread their view and band together across not only the country, but the world. Before then, you would just have a small group of nutters complaining. Now, you have them not only reinforcing their feelings around the world, but dragging folks who used to be rational into their insanity and irrational hatred. Folks who should know better start sounding more and more unhinged.

Consider friends, whether on-line or in Real Life™, who have liberal/Democrat leanings. Over the past 6 years, have you noticed a certain perpensity to get a little more moonbat each day/month/year? I have.

If you do not believe in global warming as caused by Man, you must be a denier, on par with those who deny the Holocaust. Unless you are the leader of Iran, then it is OK. If you do not believe in taxing the hell out of the rich, then you must be an evil person who does not want to help the poor. If you believe in threatening, or engaging, in military action, rather then sitting down to tea, you must be an evil warmonger. You know all the rest.

Even if a Dem wins the presidency in 2008, and Congress remains in the hands of the Dems, the Dems will find a specific person to demonize and aim their viotrol at. Yes, they will continue to spread the hate around. Rush, Hannity, O’Reilly, Malkin, WalMart, rich Republicans (rich liberals are exempt), any republican. But, they will find one specific person to aim it all at.

    The hatred that animates the sort of liberals with advanced BDS is truly frightening to behold. I shudder to think how they will direct it once they are in power.

    Soon, after Dubya and Laura depart the White House on January 20, 2009, at least for eight years the Oval Office carpeting and drapes remained stain free! And the Abe Lincoln bedroom did as well!! If Hillary Rotten Clinton and Bubba move back in, Stainmaster carpeting will have to be installed wall to freaking wall WT. And the White House interns will have to use Scotch Guard spray by the case – monthly!
    God help US then buddy….

    In a short 18 months the dhimmi’s will have to transfer their hate to someone else, most likely to each other. We need a major public works program to get enough mental facilities up and running by then.

    hate hate hate
    It does not just occur on the left side does it ?
    One difference between BDS and CDS (Clinton Derangement Syndrome) is that the overwhelming majority of Americans liked Bill Clinton. Some of his highest approval ratings came while he was being impeached by the Republican House and acquited by the Republican Senate. In fact Clinton’s ratings were just about the exact reverse of Bush’s ratings with about 68% approving of Clinton.

  5. Van, Scrap, Darth, you are 100% correct.

    John, of course hate occurs. But, let me see, Clinton gutted our intelligence, put in “The Wall,” and committed actual crimes.

    However, I do not remember conservatives calling for his death or the death of his wife, nor calendars and books making fun of him non stop. However, it isn’t just hate: it is people so deranged that every waking moment is a vast pile of seethe. On chat boards, libs tend to turn every single issue into something about Bush, no matter how remote.

    After eight years of perjury, murder and zipper gate, Al Gore still lost 30 red states to W in 2000, including his home state of Tennessee and impeached ‘Impeached’ Bubba’s Arkansas! The 25 electoral ‘Flor I Duh’ situation wouldn’t have mattered if Al Capone Gore had won ONE of the two red states!

    I wonder if they will find someone to transfer their hate to. Sure, if a Republican wins, they will be tempted — but if McCain, Romney, or Guiliani win, they won’t hate that person — because they’ll be allies in many cases. Now if Hunter, Tancredo, or Paul win, sure, they’ll just transfer their hatred.

    But what if Shillary or Bobama wins? I’m not sure there will BE a national person they could hate. The Republican Party really is devoid of national leadership, so who do they focus on? It wouldn’t work to hate Rush — there’s no benefit there. I seriously think they’ll be in trouble should one of their own win — they will still be filled with hate, but really won’t have a good target for it.
