It’s the 40th Anniversary of Watts, so a bitch is in full revolutionary mode. Add to that the fact that my ass watched a full hour of the Today Show and…well…shit is going to be kept real today…
Ain’t a damn thing changed but the date…
Watts exploded August 11, 1965. The Watts Rebellion, as this bitch prefers to call it, was kicked off by the attempted arrest of a black motorist for drunk driving. That was the match, but the kindling was years of sub-standard housing, redlining, abject poverty and harassment. 40 years later, the only change that this bitch sees is that The Man has become an equal opportunity oppressor. We have truly overcome, because now any minority group can expect to feel the boot of the system on their neck. The kindling is set, but a bitch wonders who will light the match?
Remember Watts as the rebellion of an angry people. On this 40th Anniversary my ass is pleased to see the revolutionary spirit alive in activists like Cindy Sheehan.
Keep on keeping on, sistah!
Why don’t you just shut your mouth…SHUT IT!
Bernard Goldberg, who is a complete and utter ass, has written another thinly veiled attack against liberals. This bitch shall not link to it, because my ass would have to take another bath. Suffice it to say Goldberg is insane and if you doubt me, fucking google him.
Bernie (not close, but a bitch used to beat him senseless in my dreams a few years ago) was on the Today Show mouthing off with his new book. Lauer, true to form, gave Bernie a complete pass on all of his bullshit. This bitch, disgustedly guzzling java and chain smoking through the entire interview, was struck by the general theme of the book.
The cultural elite are ruining America and delivering entertainment products that Middle America is offended by.
Hmmm. Let’s explore this shall we?
As most of you know, a bitch lives in St. Louis. Thank you for the applause! Anyhoo, St. Louis is the gateway to the American west and dead center in the middle of the country. Being a Missourian, this bitch is always fascinated by what neo-con elitists see as Middle America.
The right would like the coasts to believe that middle America is full of Gawd fearing, church going, hard working, salt of the Earth types. Their view of Missouri is based on the brief decade of conformity known as the 1950’s, which they have latched their cloven hooves onto and refuse to let go of. To them, everyone was happy then and the world was a better place.
To this bitch, the 1950’s are seen as a time of oppression for women and minorities. Black were under the boot of Jim Crow, women were popping valium just to get through the day, and gays were subject to arrest for daring to drink together in a bar. Yeah! Good times.
Just as their perception of the 1950’s is off, conservative’s perception of modern day Middle America is fucking wrong too.
Let’s take Missouri for example. Missouri is the leading meth producer in the country (we’re #1). Meth is ravaging rural areas and cities. So, no one can really put forth that small town Missouri is looking at St. Louis city’s meth problem as some sort of bizarre occurrence. In reality, small town Missouri is too busy dealing with the meth-head next door.
Missouri, like most of America, has a high divorce rate. Small town families are not reading about the divorce rate and thanking a merciful Gawd that they don’t live in St. Louis. Rather (say it with that affected New England accent that Katie uses), small town couples are too busy fucking up their own marriages to worry about who’s zooming who in St. Louis.
Desperate Housewives, CSI, Fear Factor and I Want to be a Hilton did just as well in small town Missouri as they did in St. Louis. Small towners are too busy jerking off to internet porn and TiVoing CSI to give a thought to what St. Louisans are watching.
Perception and reality are often skewed. This bitch thinks that Bernie (you little shit, my ass might have to chain you up again) needs to visit the middle before he publishes his next volume of neo-con revisionist propaganda.
Think Peyton Place not Mayberry, motherfucker…
