Monckton: We’re Winning, Really We Are

“Lord” Christopher Monckton, who is genuinely as batshit crazy as anyone you will ever encounter, is also apparently an eternal optimist. Despite Obama winning the presidency for a second time, he thinks that “the left” (to which Obama has only a tenuous connection) is on the verge of collapse and that the right is poised for victory. His reasoning is a bit, shall we say, convoluted: Obama is going to destroy everything and everyone will see that and liberalism will die.

The second remarkable thing about this “inauguration” is that – though you may not see it yet – it marks the end of the socialist/communist/fascist left as a global political force…

How, you may ask, does the failure of the Republican Party to take even the most elementary steps to get rid of an unlawful “president” mark the end of the left?

Simple. The longer Mr. Obama holds office, the more certain and visible will be the resulting national bankruptcy. And if he is allowed to serve out his second four-year sentence, nobody but the left will get the blame. For this reason, some Republicans did not want to win this election, which is why – for the second time in a row – they carefully chose the one candidate unquestionably incapable of beating him.

This faction argues that the huge damage he will cause will be less harmful in the long run, because once he is gone the left will be discredited.

Does he not realize that the Republican candidate was chosen by the rank-and-file primary voters, not by some “faction” of the Republican leadership? Even if some Republican strategists believed this, surely he can’t believe that most Republican voters didn’t want to win the election and deliberately chose someone they knew would lose? Well, this is Monckton. He could believe damn near anything. To call him delusional would be an insult to delusional people.

Here is what will happen. He will continue to be soft on Islam, and Americans will be killed, and opinion will harden against Islamic terrorism.

He will continue to overspend catastrophically, and the Republicans, after a token show of dissent, will continue to let him get away with it.

He will continue to inflict crippling taxes and regulations in the name of Saving The Planet from “global warming” that has now been conspicuous for its unpredicted absence for almost two decades.

He will continue to argue that the corrupt United Nations and the European tyranny-by-clerk are a good thing.

In short, Obama will continue to embody and to espouse every shibboleth, totem and sacred cow of the communist left. And every one of those totems is going to come tumbling down over the coming decade or two…

In five years’ time, Black Jesus will be in the Big House (unless his Republican successor pardons him). The darling of the international left will have fallen victim to the corruption endemic within the left itself.

The darkest hour is just before the dawn.

“We’ve got them just where they want them!” Funny stuff.

    That’s right, any one of Perry, Santorum, Bachmann, Newt or Ron Paul (oh yeah, and who was the 9-9-9 pizza guy?) would have given Obama a much tougher fight in the general. Everybody knows that right?

    Okay, that’s a new one to me. I’ve heard just about every other excuse, whether Romney wasn’t conservative enough, or perhaps too openly plutocratic, or Obama rigged the election, or whatever. But “we didn’t actually want to win” is just too delusional even for Republicans.

    As has been pointed out in comments here before: Putting quotes around “lord” is incorrect. Monckton is a genuine lord, he’s just not a member of the House of Lords as he likes to pretend.

    Does he not realize that the Republican candidate was chosen by the rank-and-file primary voters, not by some “faction” of the Republican leadership?

    I think I disagree with that. Romney was, IMHO, chosen and promoted by the corporate wing of the GOP who saw him as not only one of them but as the only electable candidate in the field.

    Some on the left promoted this same “reasoning” when Shrub was elected for his second term. It was faulty to say the least.

    Maybe he’s cleverer than we give him credit for. Maybe, like BP realizing that they need to diversify into energy products other than petroleum, he sees the end of the global warming denialism gravy train. Maybe this is just him branching out into conspiracies with more long-term promise.

    Or could be he’s just nuts.

    Do wingnuts actually think those three ideologies are the same? They seem to treat them as synonyms of the same word.

    What about those of us who don’t recognize the asinine concept of nobility? As far as I’m concerned, calling yourself “lord” is just as moronic as calling yourself “vampire”. It’s a fictitious construct that I simply cannot accept.

    To the McCarthy worshipers who think loyalty oaths are like magic spells that melt Communists who recite them, there’s an irony you should be made aware of: Spies are the first to recite such oaths, and thus anyone eager to go through with it should be treated with suspicion.

    not that I’m surprised, but I didn’t know Monckton was a birther. Or maybe I knew once and forgot.

    “Lord” Monckton also claims to have invented the cure to AIDS and the cold virus. He’s an all-around, general purpose nutter. And I’m all for a little cosplay and role playing for fun, but when you actually think that you are Batman (or a member of the House of Lords), you need some professional help.

    Meanwhile, the economy will continue to improve, employment will keep rising, people will get used to having half-decent health insurance, and the Grumpy Old Patriarchs will continue to waste money and infuriate women with their attempts to cast us all as child sluts who cannot be trusted to make decisions.

    Monckton is a genuine lord

    Just like Count Basie, Duke Ellington, and Sir Loin of Beef. And yes I know he really is lord of somewhere in England, but that’s their problem.

    “we didn’t actually want to win”

    That one came out of the Romney camp itself after the election. No, really.

    I think that’s more true of 2008, actually. they shoved McCain into the arena hoping the old fart would lose (I think the sensed that and it was part of the reason he chose Sarah, Plain & Dumb as his running mate.) They wanted a Democrat to be in the White House when everything they set in motion during the Dubya Era brought the country down. And Obama proved to be either better or luckier than they expected.

    If only; Mr. Monckton is viewed as an expert on climate change by Republican members of Congress. Monckton’s side, i.e., denialists and social dominators that don’t give a shit about much beyond their own personal interests (ignoring their progenies’ interests as as well), continue to win when it come obstructing a global and sufficient response to climate change.

    In this world, there are no vampires, yet there are viscounts. Weird, isn’t it?

    Do you refer to “Queen” Elizabeth? “Reverend” Billy Graham? His “Holiness” the Pope? The “Honorable” mayor of your town? If you want to be consistent you should put the quotes around those titles as well.

    He’s the 3rd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, whatever that is worth. He is allowed, by British law and custom, to call himself Lord Monckton, and simply courtesy tells us to address anyone by his or her preferred name and style.

    Yes, titles of nobility are silly, but they are not fictitious, and putting quotes around them is simply childish. If it really bugs you, just refer to him as Monckton.

    Of course, “Lord” Monckton is still deranged. Oops! Now you’ve got me doing it!

    We can be courteous without using titles like Lord, Reverend, or ‘your honor’.

    No, there are deranged people who claim to be viscounts, and other people who for some reason play along.

    The so-called regent of my country, I refer to as “queen” Margrethe; if there were another non-ambiguous way to refer to her, I would use that. The other titles you mentioned are not used in Denmark, ever.

    “Lord” Monckton was bestowed that title by a usurper (like all royalty), and I have no intention of playing along with that nonsense. It’s just as ridiculous as me insisting on everyone calling me “Supreme Overlord of the Galaxy”.

    Yes it is.

    Milo carefully said nothing when Major —— de Coverley stepped into the mess hall with his fierce and austere dignity the day he returned and found his way blocked by a wall of officers waiting in line to sign loyalty oaths. At the far end of the food counter, a group of men who had arrived earlier were pledging allegiance to the flag, with trays of food balanced in one hand, in order to be allowed to take seats at the table. Already at the tables, a group that had arrived still earlier was singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” in order that they might use the salt and pepper and ketchup there. The hubub began to subside slowly as Major —— de Coverley paused in the doorway with a frown of puzzled disapproval, as though viewing something bizarre. He started forward in a straight line, and the wall of officers before him parted like the Red Sea. Glancing neither left nor right, he strode indomitably up to the steam counter and, in a clear, full-bodied voice that was gruff with age and resonant with ancient eminence and authority, said: “Give me eat.”

    Instead of eat, Corporal Snark gave Major —— de Coverley a loyalty oath to sign. Major —— de Coverley swept it away with mighty displeasure the moment he recognized what it was, his good eye flaring up blindingly with fiery disdain and his enormous old corrugated face darkening in mountainous wrath.

    “Give me eat, I said,” he ordered loudly in harsh tones that rumbled ominously through the silent tent like claps of distant thunder.

    Corporal Snark turned pale and began to tremble. He glanced toward Milo pleadingly for guidance. For several terrible seconds there was not a sound. Then Milo nodded. “Give him eat,” he said.

    Corporal Snark began giving Major —— de Coverley eat. Major —— de Coverley turned from the counter with his tray full and came to a stop. His eyes fell on the groups of other officers gazing at him in mute appeal, and, with righteous belligerence, he roared: “Give everybody eat!”

    “Give everybody eat!” Milo echoed with joyful relief, and the Glorious Loyalty Oath Crusade came to an end.

    The wars go on, American citizens are targeted, the Patriot Act is enhanced, the wars go one, unemployment remains up and the debt continues to rise.

    But I PROMISE YOU Obama will do better this term.

    Regarding TVMOB:

    A well-known old wingnut, Lord Monckton
    Talks like his poor noggin got conked on.
    His wild wacky words,
    Though always absurd,
    Are what too many fools get zonked on.

    Do you refer to “Queen” Elizabeth? “Reverend” Billy Graham? His “Holiness” the Pope? The “Honorable” mayor of your town?

    Well actually, I usually refer to those people as the following, respectively:

    1. The senile product of 1500 years of inbreeding.
    2. The Anti-semitic scumbag.
    3. Pope Ratzi and/or Pope Palpatine.
    4. I live in a 2nd class township, which in Pennsylvania means there is no mayor.

    There are a number of things that I am jealous of the folks in the UK for. The fact that you regard health care as a right and not a gift from our sacred job creators, for example. But the weird obsession with granting people hereditary titles and treating them like they’re better than the rest of us just because they can trace their lineage to some barbarian warlord who once chopped the head off another barbarian warlord isn’t one of them.

    “Lord” Mockton is a grade-A nutbag whose family tree probably forks less than the anyone in America who thinks Larry the Cable Guy is funny. Screw him.

    (The fact that Monckton considers it important to be a “Lord” kinda carries implications of its own.)
