I’m watching a terrifying programme, about the American Tea Party – see BBC2 7pm 1/11/10.
One of the most terrifying things is that all these Americans who shout a lot have absolutely no idea of their own history, let alone the history of the rest of the world.
And … they think Obama is …
- a socialist
- a tyrant
They have no idea what either of those things mean. Obama is neither – and I am a socialist and live in a country where socialism is normal and much desired. I’m not a tyrant.
The thought – no, realisation – that most of middle-America, well-off, not giving a damn about ecology, with houses that look like palaces to and they’re only middle-income people don’t know anything about anything. They’re ignorant. And they have sooooooo much power, can affect the lives so many who cannot help themsleves, yet they have NO compassion at all, no humanity!
Oh yes, I’m scared. Scared, Horrified. Sickened. I don’t want to considered the same species as people like that.
