Reading Liz Blaine’s great piece yesterday on the “Rock the Vote, Hold out for Health Care” video, prompted me to remember what I had thought when I first saw the video. Since I will never allow an opportunity pass to point out the hypocrisy and idiocy of some of those on the Left, particularly “celebrities”, I thought I’d share those thoughts:
So, I watched the following PSA from “Rock the Vote”and, after I finished hurling, it got me to thinking (which is always dangerous, but I can’t stop myself. Believe me, I’ve tried). Remember when things like Hanoi Jane Fonda were a one-off? It was a huge deal that was discussed for, literally, decades.
Other celebrities would get drunk or stoned and make a fool of themselves on occasion, causing mass snickering and fervor due, in part, to the novelty of it. Now, it is a daily event! It’s changes like this that make me feel old and reminiscent for times past. (I’m pretty sure it all started with the demotion of Pluto. I started imagining the tossing about of insults like “You are so old that in your day Pluto was a planet.” Oh, how I long for days of planetary Pluto!)
Is this what we are going to have to deal with forever now? The dumbassery of celebutards shoved in our faces incessantly? It’s like hell on earth, which, coincidentally, I now picture as being stuck on a bio-diesel bus in perpetuity with Will Ferrell, Sheryl Crow, Al Gore and one roll of toilet paper among us (toilet paper is evil, you know.)
The latest “dumbass celebrities of the year” installment is brought to us by Rock the Vote, a member of Campaign for America’s Future’s coalition. Rock The Vote, by the way, claims to be non-partisan. This statement is on their website:
Rock the Vote is a nonpartisan organization. This means that we do not support or endorse candidates nor do we participate in any activities that could benefit one party over another. There are many laws governing our work as a nonpartisan organization and we take our non partisanship seriously. We cannot approve use of our logo for any partisan effort.
Huh. That’s funny. Because the PSA is urging people to support the dreadful Health Care Reform bill, pushed for by President Obama and the Democrats. They must be using the Newspeak definition of non-partisan. By non-partisan, they mean totally couldn’t get more partisan. Watch below:
If you can get past the utter stupidity of urging youth to support a bill that actually punishes the young (they will be forced to buy policies they do not need and will pay much higher premiums than the elderly), it gets even ickier. They ask young people to pledge “mind, body and soul” (no, really) to a piece of legislation and, by extension, the President and a party. Sound familiar?
Worse, the way they are trying to encourage young people is by using their bodies as sexual weapons. Where are the feminists decrying this objectification of our young women? Rock the Vote is basically saying: “Oh noes! Don’t support the socialization of medicine? We totally won’t bang you.” Say, if they are really concerned with health, shouldn’t they be discouraging boffing strangers? Although, I suppose it makes sense to them; the left really only knows how to screw America.
They are pulling the skanky version of their usual stompy foot baby behavior. Only, instead of throwing a tantrum and holding their breath, they are “holding out.” The sad part is that they think this is a threat. I think it’s a bonus! No chance of lefty procreation, since a vast majority of Americans do, in fact, oppose this legislation. Whew!
