ASSASSINATING BUSH AND OTHER OCCASIONS FOR HUMOR
CATEGORY: Ethics, Politics

Several times since I began this blog, I have pointed out that the unbelievably vicious hate spewed by the left toward President Bush has automatically enabled every nut with a gun in America (and around the world) to believe that assassinating the President would make them a hero.

There is nothing new to this idea as a similar fear was expressed many times during the Clinton Administration. The vitriol directed towards Clinton by the far right made the Secret Service extremely nervous until the day he left office. Indeed, there were two bona fide and thankfully clumsy attempts to harm the President, neither of which placed the Commander in Chief in any danger but underscored the very real nature of the threat.

And the Warren Commission’s deliberations in trying to decide how much blame for the assassination should be given the city of Dallas and the venomous hate directed toward Kennedy in the weeks leading up to his visit on November 22, 1963 were instructive with regards to both Oswald and Ruby’s actions.

This is why our Secret Service takes an incredibly dim view of people who even joke about assassinating the President. Threats to our national leaders by foreign elements is one thing. But home grown nuts who feel justified in murdering the President because the constant exaggerated rhetoric about dictatorships, and Hitler, and making conspiracy theories a mainstream element of politics gives a potential assassin the false belief that there are a lot of people out there who want to see Bush dead.

Is it a “false belief?” I hope so. I really don’t want to believe that there are lefties out there who would wish to see the President killed. Even the Brits who made a movie about what happens in America after the assassination of Bush don’t advocate the killing of the President. The docudrama called Death of a President set to air this fall on British TV appears to be a harsh critique of of American domestic and foreign policy that is dramatized by showing what would happen in the aftermath of Bush’s killing:

Peter Dale, head of More4, which is due to air the film on October 9, said the drama was a “thought-provoking critique” of contemporary US society.

He said: “It’s an extraordinarily gripping and powerful piece of work, a drama constructed like a documentary that looks back at the assassination of George Bush as the starting point for a very gripping detective story.

“It’s a pointed political examination of what the War on Terror did to the American body politic.

“I’m sure that there will be people who will be upset by it but when you watch it you realise what a sophisticated piece of work it is.

“Sophisticated” indeed. And judging by the fact that the author of this piece put the War in Terror in quotation marks earlier in the article – as if there is no such thing except in the fevered imagination of those silly Americans – one can guess what that “examination” of our body politic will find.

I don’t necessarily mind the idea behind the film. It may have been a better idea to wait until Bush was out of office and then doing the film as an alt/history piece rather than a futuristic sci-fi extravaganza. But if the idiot wants to embarrass himself by making such a film (most British filmakers end up embarrassing themselves when trying to make a film about America), let him have at us and be done with it. And although there would be protests aplenty, my curiosity would get the better of me and if the film were released for TV here, I would probably watch it.

But even the British director isn’t saying that killing Bush would be a good thing. No one that I know of has even hinted at something like that nor would they dare make light of such a situation and nobody ever would, would they?

Would they?

The work may or may not be good drama and may or may not make some excellent points about American political culture. I’m just saying I don’t want Bush to be assassinated. Really, truly. Here are the top ten reasons why:

10. Regular television programming would be pre-empted for days, except maybe for the Super Bowl.

9. News coverage of the assassination and state funeral would shine the rosiest light possible on the President’s memory, causing some viewers to think maybe he wasn’t so bad, after all. (In fact, this might be the only way Bush could get his approval numbers over 50 percent again.)

8. Darryl Worley would record a song about it.

7. For the next several months you wouldn’t be able to pass a supermarket tabloid rack without seeing pictures of Bush and Jesus — together forever.

6. You’d have to listen to your wingnut father-in-law rant about it all through Thanksgiving dinner.

5. The Right collectively would become even more paranoid than it is already.

4. For the rest of your life, you’d have to listen to people referring to Bush as a “martyred president.”

3. The assassination would fuel a whole new generation of conspiracy theorists.

2. Bush wouldn’t live long enough to see what historians will write about his presidency.

1. Dick Cheney.

Ms. Maha of Mahablog evidently is in desperate need of attention. Next time, may I suggest you wet your pants? Judging by the infantile attempts at humor above, I daresay you would find the fawning over by adults who wish to change your diaper more in keeping with both your intellectual prowess and emotional maturity.

That said, I am at a loss for words (so of course I’ll continue anyway).

To say that the above is in poor taste is a given. I don’t care where you are on the political spectrum, if you don’t condemn this unbelievable affront to human decency then you should be ashamed of yourself. Maha can say that she doesn’t want Bush to be assassinated until she’s blue in the face but writing what she did goes so far beyond the pale of legitimate political attack that an apology to her readers should be in order.

Except, her readers agree with her. This is one of the first comments:

great post maha! good reasons all — but #1 is especially disturbing

Comment by temperance — August 31, 2006 @ 12:40 pm

Please note that the commenter finds the constitutional ascension of Dick Cheney to the Presidency “disturbing” but not the assassination of Bush itself.

I wonder if Lambchop is going to take Maha to task for this outrageous slander. I wonder if Dave Niewert will write another ponderous post using his extensive lexicon of faux psychobabbling terms to describe the sickness of thought and reason at work here. I wonder if Billmon will grace us with another one of his specialities; incoherent ramblings that will eventually blame “neocons” for Maha’s idiocy. I wonder if TBogg will try and top what Maha did?

Does it matter? Not really. All of the above and the company they keep on the left have long since left rationality behind and have descended into a hellish nightmare of political warfare that brooks no opposition and judges orthodoxy based on the most intellectually narrow and emotionally shallow reasons imaginable. In their world, the death of Bush at the hands of an assassin would not necessarily elicit public celebration but rather more likely, present an occasion for snark such as we see above. They are much too sophisticated to share in the horror that such an event would cause the overwhelming majority of their countrymen.

I would like to believe that someone on the left will leave a comment scolding Maha for her obscenity of a post. But then, I’d like to believe in the tooth fairy except I gave that up long ago.

UPDATE

Malkin has a tour de force roundup of the history of lefty assassination fantasies. I’m going to bookmark that post.

UPDATE II

I am sorry to report that any rumors you may have heard that there was a smidgen of gray matter in Ms. Maha’s brain were not only grossly exaggerated but probably based on the assumption that since her lips move, coherence must emerge from her mouth.

Judge for yourself: (See Update)

Gracious, poor Rick Moran of Right Wing Nut House came down with the vapors over my post, above, which I figured even a rightie would recognize as mere silliness. (Some people have no sense of humor.)

I cannot tell you Barbara how silly your post was. In fact, as I pointed out above, I fully realized you were making fun of the idea of Bush being assassinated.

THAT’S THE WHOLE POINT YOU NINCOMPOOP!

Let’s have a little “silliness” about the Holocaust, shall we?

Why did the Auschwitz shower heads have 12 holes? Because Jews have 10 fingers!!

I LOVE THIS! Let’s try some lynching silliness:

Rope. Tree. Maha. Some assembly required. (Gawd, I KILL myself)

For a real knee slapper, let’s get silly about BOTH the Holocaust and Blacks:

What did the cook say to the jewish black dude?
Get in the back of the oven
?

How about some illegal immigrant silliness?

Why didnt Mexico send a team to the olympics this year?
Because everyone who can run, jump, or swim is already over here.

I love being silly, don’t you Barbara? And the reason I was being silly about these subjects was to force feed the idea into your miniscule intellect THAT THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT YOU SIMPLY CANNOT BE “SILLY” ABOUT.”

It has nothing to do with “political correctness.” It has everything to do with simple common decency. And you blew it girl, period.

Shame on you. For shame. Shame.

    Look, all this talk of people continuously condemning outrageous speech is, frankly, tiresome. Highlight it, parodize it, fisk it, complain about it, even support it if you wish. I don’t see why every utterance by anyone with a keyboard has to be upheld or trounced, no matter whether one agrees with the speaker on most issues or not.

    In the words of the immortal classic “Major League” – “Who gives a shit? It’s gone.”

    Like Goldstein, I find the premise interesting. But I would rather have seen it as an alt/history than a futurist fantasy.

    That said, lefty British filmakers only embarrass themselves when they try to make a movie about American society – laughably shallow and so bad that they could have been made by old Soviet propagandists (workers chained to their machines, etc.) I have no doubt that this guy will fail to come out any better.

    Nothing good is going to come of this I fear.

    Yes, it exposes the left as the insufferable ingrates they are. But it also how far they are willing to go off the deep end.

    When you have an increasingly unhinged radical element, characterized by vitriolic, vulgar rhetoric and a tendency toward advocating violence, the more irrelevant they become, the angrier and more violent they get. And sooner or later someone is going to get hurt.

    Some of us old-timers remember the assassination of President Kennedy. It was a horrible, tragic event for the nation. There is nothing remotely funny about the topic. Regardless of politics, trying to draw attention to oneself through something so ugly is just wrong.

    I didn’t vote for him, I think Iraq was a bad mistake in the War on Terror, but George Bush is my President and you had best stop the jokes about murdering him. The Coalition of Kooks that passes for the Democratic Party base nowadays has moved me from Democrat to the Independent column. Add the brainless twit maha to the COK.

    Methinks your panties are in a bunch. If that’s a “tour de force” roundup, on Malkin’s part, then I’m Dick Cheney.

    1. So a handfull of pathetic examples of “assassination themed items” posted by losers and jackasses represent THE LEFT (trademark pending) as a whole. Using that logic, I might as well just cherry pick some “assassination themed items” or lustings (in this case against liberals) on the part of some random conservative posters and use it to condemn all conservatives. Doing this sort of cherry picking and extrapolation is nonsense. You’ve already predetermined your “results” to conform with WHAT YOU WANT TO BELIEVE.

    2. And equating Bush Assassination jokes w/jokes about the holocaust is just dishonest and offensive. And its got to be the lamest Straw Man I’ve seen in a while.

    So, some small production company announces a project designed to get free marketing via controversy, and your first thought is to sign up to help them? Well done. I hope they’re giving you a cut.
    And Malkin’s “tour de force” leads off with “Assassination Vacation” by Sarah Vowell, which she obviously never read. It’s a history buff’s lighthearted retracing of some of the less discussed presidental assassinations. It has nothing do to with any imaginary lefty obsession with killing Bush. Most of us who could be called Bush-haters, Rick, have two problems with calls for his death. First off, it’d be wrong. The left are the ones who are against violence, remember?
    Second, Bush would be far more dangerous dead than alive. As a president he’s a ‘useful’ cheerleader for the people doing the real work. As a martyr he’d be the justification for truly terrible things.
    Now then, what about Coulter’s old calls for Clinton’s assassination, those were funny?

    Typical right wingers whining about the left. GET OVER IT. This is one of the worst presidents in America’s history. It’s not a right vs left issue, its a right vs wrong issue. A shame that the right cant differentiate between right vs wrong. And even justify murder as long as it doesnt make their side look bad.

    Truely sad and pathetic.
    And this is what the great country of America has become.

    Oh and in the Coulter post you link to above, you seem to spend more time disparaging liberals for calling her actions racist because you seem to be fixated on a literal interpretation of the word.

    For your information, the word racist (or racism) applies to discrimination or hostility towards religion or ethnicity as well as just race (look it up).

    You should probably try to understand that as you talk down to those on the left, you’re using concepts that most of us put behind us in grade school. We’ve moved on to larger issues.

    I’m not worried about the President being assassinated. The secretive service are too good to allow that to happen. Of course, it might happen—as Michael Corleone said, “If history has taught us anything, it’s that you can kill anybody”—but it require an extremely rare breakdown in security for it to occur.

    I’m more worried about someone else in a leadership position. Say, the leader of an anti-immigration group or an English-only advocate or a Republican, for that matter. Someone with far less protection.

    When it becomes accepted to use vitriol and vulgarity, condescension and calls for violence against your opponent, how far are we from riot and anarchy?

    As long as the left openly embraces assassination as an acceptable recourse to reasoned debate, the situation is only going to become more volatile. And eventually someone is going to get killed.

    And then what?

    [...] While I can understand why some can find it compelling to imagine “what if” scenarios, I can’t imagine why anyone would find it chuckle-worthy and it is a fair question to ask: would these folks so amused by the idea of a Bush-Snuff-Film be equally flippant or entertained by a film showing Bill Clinton assassinated? Or Hillary? Or Ned? I think not. Although I will stipulate that were such odious films to be made there are some on the right who would disgrace themselves by enjoying it, the bottom line is rational, sane people should not find this topic amusing, no matter who the president.

    I have to say, I love the snarling from some of the lefties in the comments. Keep talking, guys. The more people hear you, the more you’ll be exposed.

    Sure, Bush and Cheney are corrupt criminals, even by third world standards. But give them some credit. They aren’t idiots. WE’RE the real idiots!! They’re alive and still in power, aren’t they??? Shame on us!!
