Ted Rall's call to arms

The moonbat extremist cartoonist is asking his ideological compadres to fight the right... literally.  Excerpts from his new book "The Anti-American Manifesto" follow:

We are here because the U.S. is going to end soon. There's going to be an intense, violent, probably haphazard struggle for control. It's going to come down to us versus them. The question is: What are you going to do about it?


Christian fundamentalists, the millennial end-of-theworlders obsessed with the Left Behind series about the End Times, neo-Nazi racists, rural black-helicopter Michigan Militia types cut from the same inbred cloth as Timothy McVeigh, allied with "mainstream" gun nuts and right-wing Republicans, have been planning, preparing, and praying for the destruction of the "Godless," "secular" United States for decades. In the past, they formed groups like the John Birch Society and the Aryan Nations. Now the hard Right has a postmodern, decentralized non-organization organization called the Tea Party.


A war is coming. At stake: our lives, the planet, freedom, living. The government, the corporations, and the extreme right are prepared to coalesce into an Axis of Evil. Are you going to fight back? Will you do whatever it takes, including taking up arms?


I want to kick people in the ass. To get them thinking. To get you thinking. I want you to understand the situation--your situation. I want you to see that revolt is a good idea, and that it has never been more necessary.

I'm sure Janet Napolitano and her cohorts at Homeland Defense are all over this.  I'm as sure the media will vilify Mr. Rall for inciting violence.  And I'm also sure none of the networks will allow him to shill this book on their talking head shows.

So rest easy America.

John at VerumSerum gets credit for the find.

I'm sure his book will sell many hundreds of copies.

Hey, Mr. Rall. I hear there's a community organizer looking for some ass to kick, in regards to an oil spill or something. Maybe you two can get together.

He probably would work out well as a political analyst on MSNBC.

Rall? Lousy cartoonist, lousy artist, lousy activist. I've never understood how someone who draws so flippin' badly has managed to gain such a voice. Even when I used to read the local counter-culture papers, I thought his strips were pitiful, and their inclusion the equivalent of a journalistic mercy hand-job to keep him from starving.

Yet people take him seriously? The mind boggles...

John F Not Kerry:

If Ted wants to battle someone who loves the Left Behind series, have him come and see me. I can kick his ass physically, intellectually, and a few other ways.

When I was a kid, noisemakers like Rall were a lot quieter on the second day of school.

Well, when you lack talent, one way to stay visible is to be outrageous.

The problem here is that Rall left outrageous a long time ago and now he's publishing his insanity.

If the book bombs, I'm sure he can write for Kos.

Sheik Yur Bouty:

The funny thing is that if anyone on the left actually does what Rall is suggesting, a whole lot of lefties will find themselves on the wrong end of a whole lot of guns held by righties...

The left is really good at violent rhetoric, but when push comes to shove they are just like a playground bully...really tough until someone stands up to them.

Keep it up Rall! The more people in the newly awakened Tea Party movement witness your insanity, the farther they move away from the Dem party.

If you read the full manife... (Below threshold)
Andrew X:

If you read the full manifesto at the link, it is actually quite fascinating in a car-wreck sort of way. Here are some thoughts from an "I'll read it so you don't have to" standpoint --

First, I should mention that Ted Rall's name seemed to be all over the b'sphere about five years ago. I literally have not heard it since. I don't know what happened in that time, but now he's thoughly nuts, like he retired to a cave to grow like a poisonous mushroom.

Now to his drivelings....

It is so amazing how his descripion of the Tea Party is entirely, 100% what it must be for Rall's strange little planet to exist. What it actually is is utterly irrelevant. And always will be. In this case, that wonderful Tea Party sign is perfect - "It doesn't matter what my sign says, you'll call it racist anyway". It does not matter one damn bit what the Tea Party did, does, or will ever do, to Rall and his ilk. It is what it is, in their snake-filled heads, and ever will be.

Then there is his description of what has to happen for his legion of wild-eyed, proto-violent legions to succeed. And what does he describe? A "bottom-up", "decentralized" mass-movement, "based on ideals, not necessarily tactics", that is willing to be uncompromising and dedicated in pursuit of those ideals.

Huh? Gosh, I feel that I've seen such a movement lately, but I can't for the life of me remember where!

(I'm reminded of decades of teachers and the like getting dewey-eyed and moist over their kids getting "passionate for change" and politically involved. Ask those very people how they feel now about their kids participating in Tea Parties, and find out just how they really feel about political activism among the young.)

Lastly, there's the weird thing at the link that all the 'w's in the tract are missing (?!?) Is this a software bug (that I have never seen before), or is it Rall's cute latent anti-Bushism or what? Going true to form, I'd guess it's the latter, and also true to form, it's about six times less witty than Rall thinks it is.

If a moonbat like him is go... (Below threshold)

If a moonbat like him is going to start a war, he should learn how to use a weapon instead of cowering in fear from it. He's just a noisy chihuahua making a lot of shrill yipping noise (and I have to apologize to all the real chihuahuas for that comparison).

As much as I dislike Bush, ... (Below threshold)

As much as I dislike Bush, I rely on the "w" key too much to make do without it. Obama is just as bad (same policies); to be fair I'd have to do without the "o"s too.

As you were. Masturbating to Bush's new book, I assume.

Big Mo:

I remember clearly when Alan Colmes said to Rall on the old "Hannity and Colmes" show about 7 or 8 years ago to "Get off my team!"

If they feel strong, go for... (Below threshold)

If they feel strong, go for it. We have all the guns after all lol

Well I guess the honeymoon ... (Below threshold)

Well I guess the honeymoon is over. We had what, two years without the loony left talking about "revolution, baby!" and "war is coming- we HAVE to destroy the right-wing/neo-nazi/racist/fundamentalist Christian/mouth-breather/inbred-redneck idiots who don't understand how NICE we are!"

Rall apparently forgot who owns the most guns. And it isn't the liberals.

So what'd you do Rall, google your name to find who was talking about your book?

Yep. The concept of libtards taking up arms is almost exciting. LOL!

Chem Doc:

Nothing short of absolute power is sufficient for the loony left. Since the American people put the breaks on and they no longer have total control of the ship... time for revolution. Reminds me of the "If Bush wins I'm going to leave the country." Wish a few of the windbags would have followed through on that one...

I don't know who Ted Rall is either. How is he relevant to anything important?

I am a wee bit confused here... Ted Rall says the "government" is out to get him and his ilk; is it the same government that confiscates my income at gunpoint to finance the various associations, groups, foundations and organizations that Mr. Rall "earns" his income from? Is it that government?

When did Ted Rall join the tea-party? Ive never seen him at the meetings.
