Pure Contrarynism is also Simple Thinking

Over at Little Green Footballs Charles Johnson takes note of the (tardy) reaction of the Daily Kos denizens to the latest foiled terror plot.

I don’t believe the latest terrorist plot bullsh*t. If this ever goes to trial, and if they show actual evidence that these guys they arrested weren’t just talking trash, I’ll admit I was wrong and apologize for what I’m about to say:

People at Freerepublic and LGF are gullible f*cking morons, bloodthirsty sh*tbags, and weak-willed losers who NEED big brother to tell them what to think, how to act, and who to hate . Of course, most at DK realize that, so I don’t know if this diary is even necessary. Nevertheless, why is it so hard to have a little bit of skepticism when faced with constant lies produced out of D.C.

Here is a list I cribbed from

Lackawanna Six
Virginia Paintball guys
The tortured Abu Ali
Jose Padilla
Lodi, California
Miami plot against the Sears Tower
New York subway tunnels
“Liquid explosives” plot on UK to US flights
Ft. Dix Six

Thanks to the blog by Scott Horton for the list. I knew there’d been plenty of stupid sh*t busts like this over the last few years, but dumb to you have to be to believe the U.S. government at this point? The U.S. government has ZERO credibility. FDA—failing to protect U.S. consumers, FEMA—catastrophic failure in New Orleans, Iraq War—lies upon lies to get Americans to launch an illegal war of agression, 9-11—failure to prevent what anyone with a lick of sense could see coming for years (ask me why I wasn’t surprised that day—shocked by the massive slaughter, but not the attack), Economy—govt economic figures distorted and made essentially useless, i.e. inflation figures, unemployment data, etc., etc., etc....

Pretty simple thinking and follows a very predictable formula it is called being contrary. All terror plots foiled by the government are BS and all not stopped were so blinkingly obvious. No more critical thinking found in the above waste of bytes than in what they accuse their political opponents of. I am a lion hear me roar.

He needs his LGF and Free Republic every bit as much as the regulars of those websites do. After all, if they disappeared he would not know what to think either (or at least think against). I would find this amusing in times of minimal tumult but the thinking above is infectious and paralyzing.
