A Response To Marjorie Traitor Greene-- From Hunter S. Thompson: Go Please...& Take Wyoming With You
Marge's National Divorce Needs To Be More Granular
Did you ever read any of Hunter S. Thompson's last works, like Kingdom of Fear: Loathsome Secrets of a Star-crossed Child in the Final Days of the American Century (2003)? Obviously addressed to George W. Bush, this screed below is even more perfect as a response to Traitor Greene’s attempt to trigger normal Americans with her week of sedition. I agree with the sentiment— with a twist. Let the red counties go form their own country, not red states— after all Traitor Greene’s Georgia isn’t a red state any longer. But Georgia counties like Jeff Davis, Glascock, Pickens, Brantley, Habersham, Union, Echols, Jasper, Warner, Banks, Rabun, Murray, Towns, Gilmer, Bacon, Lumpkin, Schley, Pike, Heard, Appling, Walker, Polk, Fannin, Haralson, Stephens, Catoosa, Gordon, Pierce, Jackson and, obviously White… good. Good, good riddance. They would all vote to secede and it would be the most wonderful thing that ever happened to America. A decade later we could go bury the rotting corpses and reclaim the empty land. But, in Georgia, would should normal counties like DeKalb, Fulton, Clarke, Taliaferro, Douglas, Chatham, Rockdale, Liberty, Stewart, Hancock, Clayton, Macon, Calhoun, Richmond, Henry, Bibb, Dougherty, Cobb, Gwinnett, Clay, Muscogee... be forced into that dystopian hell, any more than places like Austin, Houston, Dallas, El Paso, San Antonio, Orlando, Tampa, Jacksonville, Miami, Birmingham, New Orleans, Nashville, Memphis, Charlestown, Raleigh, Charlotte, Durham… On the other hand, take California counties like Lassen, Amador, Sutter, Modoc, Tehama, Shasta, Yuba, Calaveras, Siskiyou, Mariposa, Plumas, Tuolumne, Glenn and Sierra with you.
Marge, without you and your people, this truly would be God’s country, not Satan’s. And you can take George Santos and Kevin McCarthy-- even if Nassau County and Bakersfield chose to stay in America. As Thompson wrote:
We have become a Nazi monster in the eyes of the whole world, a nation of bullies and bastards who would rather kill than live peacefully. We are not just Whores for power and oil, but killer whores with hate and fear in our hearts. We are human scum, and that is how history will judge us. No redeeming social value. Just whores. Get out of our way, or we'll kill you. Who does vote for these dishonest shitheads? Who among us can be happy and proud of having all this innocent blood on our hands? Who are these swine? These flag-sucking half-wits who get fleeced and fooled by stupid little rich kids like George Bush? They are the same ones who wanted to have Muhammad Ali locked up for refusing to kill gooks. They speak for all that is cruel and stupid and vicious in the American character. They are the racists and hate mongers among us; they are the Ku Klux Klan. I piss down the throats of these Nazis. And I am too old to worry about whether they like it or not. Fuck them."
"Fuck the South. Fuck 'em. We should have let them go when they wanted to leave. But no, we had to kill half a million people so they'd stay part of our special Union. Fighting for the right to keep slaves-- yeah, those are states we want to keep. And now what do we get? We're the fucking Arrogant Northeast Liberal Elite?
How about this for arrogant: the South is the Real America? The Authentic America. Really? Cause we fucking founded this country, assholes. Those Founding Fathers you keep going on and on about? All that bullshit about what you think they meant by the Second Amendment giving you the right to keep your assault weapons in the glove compartment because you didn't bother to read the first half of the fucking sentence? Who do you think those wig-wearing lacy-shirt sporting revolutionaries were? They were fucking blue-staters, dickhead.
Boston? Philadelphia? New York? Hello? Think there might be a reason all the fucking monuments are up here in our backyard?
No, No. Get the fuck out. We're not letting you visit the Liberty Bell and fucking Plymouth Rock anymore until you get over your real American selves and start respecting those other nine amendments. Who do you think those fucking stripes on the flag are for? Nine are for fucking blue states. And it would be 10 if those Vermonters had gotten their fucking Subarus together and broken off from New York a little earlier. Get it? We started this shit, so don't get all uppity about how real you are you Johnny-come-lately "Oooooh I've been a state for almost a hundred years" dickheads. Fuck off.
Arrogant? You wanna talk about us Northeasterners being fucking arrogant? What's more American than arrogance? Hmmm? Maybe horsies? I don't think so. Arrogance is the fucking cornerstone of what it means to be American. And I wouldn't be so fucking arrogant if I wasn't paying for your fucking bridges, bitch. All those Federal taxes you love to hate? It all comes from us and goes to you, so shut up and enjoy your fucking Tennessee Valley Authority electricity and your fancy highways that we paid for. And the next time Florida gets hit by a hurricane you can come crying to us if you want to, but you're the ones who built on a fucking swamp. "Let the Spanish keep it, it's a shithole," we said, but you had to have your fucking orange juice.
The next dickwad who says, "It's your money, not the government's money" is gonna get their ass kicked. Nine of the ten states that get the most federal fucking dollars and pay the least... can you guess? Go on, guess. That's right, motherfucker, they're red states. And eight of the ten states that receive the least and pay the most? It's too easy, asshole, they're blue states. It's not your money, assholes, it's fucking our money. What was that Real American Value you were spouting a minute ago? Self reliance? Try this for self reliance: buy your own fucking stop signs, assholes.
Let's talk about those values for a fucking minute. You and your Southern values can bite my ass because the blue states got the values over you fucking Real Americans every day of the goddamn week. Which state do you think has the lowest divorce rate you marriage-hyping dickwads? Well? Can you guess? It's fucking Massachusetts, the fucking center of the gay marriage universe. Yes, that's right, the state you love to tie around the neck of anyone to the left of Strom Thurmond has the lowest divorce rate in the fucking nation. Think that's just some aberration? How about this: 9 of the 10 lowest divorce rates are fucking blue states, asshole, and most are in the Northeast, where our values suck so bad. And where are the highest divorce rates? Care to fucking guess? 10 of the top 10 are fucking red-ass we're-so-fucking-moral states. And while Nevada is the worst, the Bible Belt is doing its fucking part.
But two guys making out is going to fucking ruin marriage for you? Yeah? Seems like you're ruining it pretty well on your own, you little bastards.
Oh, but that's ok because you go to church, right? I mean you do, right? Cause we fucking get to hear about it every goddamn year at election time. Yes, we're fascinated by how you get up every Sunday morning and sing, and then you're fucking towers of moral superiority. Yeah, that's a workable formula. Maybe us fucking Northerners don't talk about religion as much as you because we're not so busy sinning, hmmm? Ever think of that, you self-righteous assholes? No, you're too busy erecting giant stone tablets of the Ten Commandments in buildings paid for by the fucking Northeast Liberal Elite. And who has the highest murder rates in the nation? It ain't us up here in the North, assholes.
Well this gravy train is fucking over. Take your liberal-bashing, federal-tax-leaching, confederate-flag-waving, holier-than-thou, hypocritical bullshit and shove it up your ass. And no, you can't have your fucking convention in New York next time.
