Kevin Buck: The VLWC and you

It has been just 52 days since President Obama took the oath of office and began implementing the secret Democratic plan to destroy the United States, create a socialist welfare state and use the powers of the Vast Left Wing Conspiracy to silence the Vast Right Wing Conclave once and for all.

Conservative talking heads, columnists, radio hosts and politicians have been very busy of late, exposing the nefarious plot to destroy their way of life.

No revolution would be complete without a plausible conspiracy theory to boost its mythical proportions and the GOP has that covered.

The Democratic socialist revolution currently being promulgated by the Republican Party is apparently made possible because the "mainstream media" has thrown its heavy hand in with the leftist revolutionaries.

For those of you from Rio Linda, the MSM is made up of notoriously liberal corporations like General Electric, Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, Viacom, Disney and Time-Warner.

Conservatives seemingly believe these companies support the Democratic agenda because if the pro-business Republican Party were ever to regain the power they held at the turn of the century, they would crush these out of control multi-national media corporations. And they can say this with straight faces, no mean trick.

The first step the MSM and the Democrats took in the War on Republicans was to engineer the election of Michael Steele to head the Republican National Committee.

This was a stroke of genius on the part of the Democrats, as he has proven to be a nonstop source of amusement to political junkies and an embarrassment to the minority party. Right out of the gate, the man who pledged to bring hip-hop to the GOP made a huge mistake: He told the truth about Rush Limbaugh.

What was Steele's sin? He said in an interview that Rush was not the de facto head of the Republican Party, that he was an entertainer who used ugly rhetoric to get ratings. Soon we were treated to the Man of Steele publicly groveling before El Rushbo, asking for his forgiveness. Immediately thereafter the "de facto" was removed from Limbaugh's title and the thrice-divorced, former drug addict became the official voice of the party. So far the Democratic plan was working to perfection.

Weeks later Steele, the hapless Democratic tool, told the truth once again, with equally disastrous results. When asked in a Vanity Fair interview if women had the right to choose an abortion, he answered, "Yeah. I mean, again, I think that's an individual choice."

When asked if homosexuality was a choice, he answered, "Oh, no. I don't think I've ever really subscribed to that view, that you can turn it on and off like a water tap."

Clearly he had his Republican platform "choice" talking points reversed and again the titular head of the party was forced to publicly grovel for forgiveness, this time from the family values Republicans and the Christian right.

No socialist revolution can succeed without the government seizing control of wealth and spending. The worldwide recession Obama and the Democrats inherited from George W. Bush allowed them to enact their economic "stimulus" plan, which apparently was really a spending plan because it was only 42 percent tax cuts and not 100 percent as the Republican minority in Congress demanded.

Not to worry: The congressional conservatives had an alternate plan. Faced with the greatest economic crisis of our lifetime, not a single Republican voted for the stimulus bill. Talk about courage.

It is invigorating to see a political party in unanimous agreement to do absolutely nothing in the face of a global economic meltdown. Maybe the free market is self-correcting after all.

But clearly we can look forward to eight more years of Republicans employing a Nancy Reagan political strategy of "Just Say No" (except for tax cuts, which solve any problem).

On Feb. 28, 2009 the mainstream media televised Rush Limbaugh's address to the nation (thanks, Fox News). During that speech Rush defined the Republican approach to governance and Washington, D.C., cooperation: "To us, bipartisanship is them being forced to agree with us after we politically have cleaned their clocks and beaten them."

As a proud Democratic partisan, I have only one word in response. Ditto.
