Carny Nation

The Democrats have built themselves a pyramid scheme of Babel and it's fools, suckers and marks all the way down. This is their Carny Nation and it only sustains itself by demanding greater levels of stupidity from its followers.
Carny

Come right in and step right up. See the bright lights and the oddities of nature. Inside folks, for the low price of twenty-two trillion dollars, you can see Binders of Women, Team Big Bird and entire reams of green windmills and fields full of bayonets and horses. Here lies become the truth and everything is full of sugar. And the highlight of the show with be Barack, the Exotic Prince from the Wilds of Indonesia and Kenya, with a special appearance by Oprah and a hologram of JFK. Here in the Carnival of Fools, the party never stops and no one ever has to pay the bill.

“There’s a sucker born every minute,” a famous connoisseur of them once said. And suckers are big business. Very big business indeed. But don’t feel too sorry for the sucker. The sucker is a creature composed of ignorance and greed. He believes in his own specialness. He believes that he can fool other people into giving him their money, when actually he is the one being fleeced. The mark is an aspiring scammer who is too dumb to realize that nothing in life is free and the scam is on him.

If you browse through your email’s spam folder, the chances are good that you will come upon a missive from a Nigerian prince offering you the opportunity to help him cart away his fortune in exchange for a sharp cut of the profits. These scams date back to the dinosaur years of the internet, and though there are occasional elaborations on the theme, the African scammers stick to the tried and true, even though the tried and true has become a cliche that anyone should be able to see through.

Why?

Because the Nigerian Prince scam is a self-selecting group. Anyone who still falls for it after all these years is dumber than your average sucker. The scammers know this and they don’t want to waste their valuable time hooking a difficult fish with a plausible scam. They go for easy marks for the same reason that some men fish with dynamite. Because it’s easier.

America has its own Nigerian Prince. I think you know his name by now. His campaign sent out nearly as many emails as his Nigerian colleagues do, promising fame and fortune to those suckers who would help him transfer some wealth from the 1 percent to the 99 percent. And now that his second term is here, the check is in the mail. And if the government check doesn’t clear, well that’s what happens when you put your faith in Nigerian Princes.

A scam like the Democratic Party needs suckers. It needs millions and millions of the dumbest people that can be found outside of specially supervised group homes. And then it needs to appoint people to watch over them, give them the occasional food and minor check, and drive them in vans to the polls after two or four years so that the con artists can keep their manicured paws on the local treasury.

These people have to be stupid, yes, but like all marks, they have to be greedy. They have to be the kind of people who relish taking someone else’s money without working for it. The kind who grin at the idea of putting something over someone else. The kind who think that they are smart because they decided that the world owes them a living. They think that they’re smart, but they’re only the marks in a con. And when the con is done, like the guy depositing a check from Nigeria’s Prince Uscamo, they are going to be the ones left holding the bag.

A con plays on the greed of the mark. And on his stupidity. And in a democracy, you can take over a country if you organize enough motivated suckers to vote for trillions in government money that they will never see, but that they are on the hook for. And if you don’t have enough native suckers, then you import more, taking care that your immigration policies favor the greedy sucker demographic. But unfortunately in a democracy where half the population doesn’t bother to vote and a quarter votes for the scammers, we are all on the hook for the scam.

  1. A bit over the top but nevertheless, Mr. Greenfield's frustration and distress is plaintive and indicative of what many are feeling after the debacle of Nov. 6th.

    The Democrats do require a dumbed down electorate, have been assiduously working toward that goal for decades and the solution will take much more than adjusting the conservative message. There was nothing wrong with the conservative message. There is something drastically wrong with the ability of the average American voter to discern fact from hype, journalistic integrity from blatant bias and to make accurate assessments of character.

    To any patriotic American paying attention it's been obvious since Obama first emerged as a serious contender for the presidency that there was very little known about him. He was a good looking, well dressed, well educated, and very accomplished orator. He was also interracial from a white mother and black father, a factor whose historical significance was not lost on a society perpetually guilt ridden with regard to racial inequality. But much of his background and personal history was then and remains to this day, a secret or surrounded by unproven, unanswered, suspicious allegations and those he was most closely associated with, some considered his mentors, the Reverend Wright, Edward Said, Rashid Khalidi, Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, Frank Marshall Davis, etc. were a collection of people with pro communist, radical anti-American, anti-Israeli sentiments.

    After four or five years in the public spotlight ask the typical man or woman on the American street about any of this and be met with a smile, a blank stare or a curt, dismissive opinion about a dark place where your head might be at. No, remessaging is putting a bandaid on a hemorrhaging artery. America is unaware that it is bleeding to death. How to make it aware? How to get past all the firmly entrenched, anti-capitalist, anti American, anti-wealthy, anti-Wall Street, anti-conservative attitudes cast like concrete in the minds of those who could vote to give this President four more years; to do what?

    Einstein's definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result. By that definition a little over half the electorate is insane.

    OH right, GREENFIELD, BUSH and CO never LIED to the whole world about non-existant WMD's in IRAQ, causing hundreds of thousands of deaths of IRAQI and AFGHANI innocent civilians while devastating their infrastructures. What a HYPOCRITE you are. And what about the lies BUSH and CO spewed about "we don't torture"? What about secret renditions and ILLEGAL MASS DOMESTIC SPYING programs? Are you missing half a brain or more? THERE IS NO TWO PART SYSTEM in the USA—it's all a fake democracy, secretly ruled by a despotic rich elite, under cover of the so-called "Nat'l Security State". Do your homework.
