Sadly, this is exactly the Country we are...

122214-sony-kjulionfaceWell... Last week was interesting to say the least...and all cause some jackass boss' kid who now happens to be running things has a shittier sense of humor than his father... 

The entire world was turned ass over head by the actions of the pot bellied tin horn running shit in North Korea. Kim Jong Un got his panties all up in a bunch when Sony decided to make a Seth Rogan/James Franco stoner vehicle revolving around an attempt to assassinate him.

 

Eager to show himself as a man to not be triffled with, the little dictator hired mercs (or had his own legion of cyber-warriors, depending on the source speaking) and had them hack into Sony (who, I might add, just can't seem to get their shit together with the whole cyber security thing, can they... Company secrets get hacked, Playstation network gets hacked... It's like they're not even trying...).

He then had them (or he himself is doing it, again no one's really sure exactly how hands on this goon is capable of getting) blackmail the Sony Corporation through a series of embossing leaked emails and payroll numbers for the sole purpose of getting the distribution of this movie, titled "The Interview", pulled. It took threatening 9/11 styled attacks to the individual theaters playing the film to finally get it all done; the dwindling screens limiting Sony's options (their words). 

And it sucks, having our entertainment dictated to us by some thin skinned despot taking time out of tormenting his people to come shit all over our Cheerios. But that's not my focus currently... It's horseshit and the act of cowards, but it also wasn't my dirty laundry dangling out in the free. Not giving them a pass (as they learned and we all knew, you NEVER give a mouse a cookie... Cocksucker always will want a glass of milk...), but when billions are at stake one does what one must. 

No, my focus was on Barry O. and his strong, strong words. 

 

A Kingdom in Crisis


122214-sony-obamajokeThis is the last thing Barry needed... 

The Arabs think him a cunt. 

The Russians think him a cunt. 

Our allies are wavering... Our enemies strengthening... 

Like Chamberlin, he sits precariously perched over a powder keg desperate to keep it from rupturing under his watch. 

It wasn't his plan to ruin the world... Only to reduce America's influence upon it. 

But alas, he pulled the wrong Jenga stick out at some point and this pile of kindling is just a rocking back and forth 122214-sony-jengaon him... So much so that Kim Jung Un, the piss ant of the globe, felt himself strong enough to go and poke a finger in the American eye. 

And understand that is exactly what he did.

He went and interfered with the function of an American company... Something that is in the President's job description to defend. It'd be no different if he had shut down a bank or turned off a power grid (ok, ok... I'll grant you the severity is a bit different but in the theory, it's all equal).

And Friday, Lord Barrack stood before his people and spoke strongly in his condemnation of the events and even took some issue with the actions of Sony in the matter (namely the whole pulling the movie thing). And it was a good message by Barry... A little too late, as he was silent until after it was done, letting him play the shoulda game as opposed to the gonna version, but he tried... 

But he said something during the course of it that left me a bit unsettled... 

"... that's not who we are..." 

122214-sony-barryoHe says it a lot lately, usually while chastising us for not wanting every Central American here illegally to get a free pass or for having the nerve to vote in a Republican majority in the House and Senate. But this time he uttered it to try and remind us of our steely resolve to never buckle under the weight of tyrants; Americans not ones to take kindly to censorship. 

But he was wrong about saying that's not who we are... Because it is...

 

Stop it... You Hurt My Feelings...


122214-sony-antipcThink about the last time you heard someone say that something was retarded... Or someone, for that matter... Not an actual handicapped person, but like a friend of normal functioning intelligence that happened to dick something up... 

You don't, do you... 

What about calling your friend, who you know for a fact is as straight as it gets, gay for some of his more effeminate tendencies (or masculine, if it's a chick)... 

Again, it's gone... 

I'm not speaking about your kids or the young kids at the local bar with the odd mustaches and unnecessary accessories to compliment their a bit too tight old timey outfits... I mean among you and your friends...guys that you know are not bleeding heart, feeling Nazis that find offense in any little thing. 

Or what about the last time you heard someone speak their mind about a topic at the office or church or something without having to qualify themselves as free of racial, gender, and sexual preferential (wow does that list keep getting longer...) bias before expressing a "controversial" opinion (and bear in mind, the opinion is only controversial to a small segment of the population that happens to be mouthpieces by the mainstream media and the pop culture). 

Again, it's something we see less and less...

122214-sony-crybabyWe all complain about it, the unseen, encroaching taloned hand of Political Correctness smothering all of life in America. We bitch and we moan and we carry on about the tedious and useless nature of the practice... But there we are, going along with it none the less...

We don't wanna be called racist. Or sexist. Or homophobe. 

We don't like having every little thing we said dissected by creepy eyed sycophants looking for any reason to start up the outrage machine. We deal with it low level (like how your wife's friend rolls her eyes and calls you a Neanderthal when you dare to speak any opinion not supported in full by Jezebel.  We deal with it at work, choking down nervous after any exchange with anyone really; never really sure what's gonna trigger the rat snare these days. We see it with Public Figures the most, a weekly process of finding some derelict breaker of the unwritten societal rules we somehow all agreed to (and these rules change fast, Jack... In the blink of a damn eye...) to have prostrate before us and beg forgiveness for his (usually it's a guy... A white guy, if we are gonna be honest) misstep. This is then followed by a public firing, the cries of outrage not sated by mere words... They need blood to fill the hole left by the brutal assault of hurt feelings...

Point is, it is who we are... Craven cowards succumbing to the shrieking masses as we beg them to forgive us... Or at least who we have become as the Progressives gain a stronger and stronger foothold on our society. You can't see the difficulty in a cop's job without being called a racist... Or go out on a date on any college campus in American with first having filled out full concert forms for every single action, lest you support rope culture. And so 122214-sony-pcstatementforth and so on... An endless chain of grievance mongers and rabble rousers stoking the flames of discord as we shrink away from the rugged individualism of our past to embrace our future of collective victimization; each group granted grievance for their individual claims of injustice (Except for whitey... That motherfucker already had his day in the sun...).

We have been self censoring our thoughts and words constantly for a while now... More and more, it seems, since the Great Unifier took his seat at the head of the table. We do it to save face publicly with our family, friends, and strangers. We do it to keep from getting fired. We do it incessantly... 

So why are we so shocked that Sony did it...
