I Tell You We Must Die October 10, 2008

Tonight I went to the Deustch House Oktoberfest, listening to a bad Om Pah band play the Hogan Hero’s Theme and chicken dance endlessly. While I was walking up to the Deustch House my wife called, railing about the freaks at the latest McCain-Palin rally. While the phone was out, I checked my email. The counting house’s stock was down, again, another five percent.
When that wore itself out, I found my way to Frenchman Street in search of the Jazz Vipers. Instead, I found a rather hot Kelsmer band.

It occured to me as I sat at the bar at the Spotted Cat finishing my beer before I went home (since there was to be no Jazz Vipers or at least too late for my taste): I have tonight heard the soundtrack of Weimar Amerika. “Kill him,” they shout at their rallies.

Please just Show Me the Way to the Next Whisky Bar.

That’s odd. We were at the Deutches Haus last night. We were ducking out after finishing our wurst und kraut; on the heels of the Hogan’s Heroes theme performance. They were doing another audience participation number, Wurst Song.

I don;t know what it was, maybe the crowd’s lukewarm participation, or all the German talk or not enough beer, but I turned to CS and said, “I feel like I’m at one of those McCain rallies–KILL HIMMMMM!” I didn’t yell it that loud and luckily it got lost in the crowd noise.

But how easily the village mob mentality is sparked. Or is it from having watched Leni Riefenstahl films at a relatively young age? Did you see where McCain got booed when he tried to backpedal and tell his people Obama is a “decent man.?”

Damn, I meant to remember to dm you on Twitter and spaced it. I blame the beer, and the terribly bad music.

Favorite political pun of all time, said of Pat Buchanan: “His speeches sounded better in the original German.”

I really am afraid of the tens of millions of people who have allowed themselves to be deeply brainwashed in the hate think of Limbaugh, Hannity, etc. I don’t think they will take loss well, and I don’t think there is anything they would not do to prevent that occuring.

Think of the Broward County Brooks Brothers Riot (I think of them as the Brooks Brothers Brownshirts) who shut down the recount with a riot. Imagine that played out all across the country.

The right wing hate slingers have been suggesting we are all terrorists for years, suggesting that we are not real Americans and are in fact an enemy, the people we are trying to kill all around the world. They play Limbaugh on Armed Force Radio for chrissake, indoctrinating people who were already bought into the fantasy enough to volunteer for Iraq.

In spite of McCain’s pathetic attempt yesterday or the day before to tone it down, I am terribly afraid of how these people will behave over the next month.
