"There's room at the top they are telling you still. But first you must learn how to smile as you kill, if you want to be like the folks on the hill."
-John Lennon in 1970, from "Working Class Hero."
Of course, the Republican Party of John Lennon's day, led by an evil, tiny little burnt soul of a man named Richard Nixon, took valuable time away from far more serious matters to attempt to deport Lennon for speaking truth to power. Nixon put the full forces of his criminal administration behind his effort. He didn't win. Lennon got his green card, but I suppose Nixon and his fellow repugs could always take some pride and solace in the fact that they had stirred up such a whirlwind of negativity around Lennon that another evil little goon was inspired to kill him.
Now here in 2021, things are even worse. The Republican machine has nazi corporate media knuckle-draggers to help them in their Death Cult causes. The Republican Death Cult can now whip up their storms of darkness more efficiently, on a bigger scale, and with even more intensity. They do this with zombie armies of death-worshipping ghouls on the hill with names like "Ted" Cruz, Ron Johnson, Moscow Mitch, Josh Hawley, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Ron DeSantis, Louie Gohmert, and their platoons of red MAGA hat wearing traitors and other mindless freaks storming the Capitol. They have those media entities like Breitbart, AON, Newsmax, Sinclair Broadcasting, and of course, FOX "News" (started by a Nixon acolyte), to help them massively amplify their agendas of death and ruin. It's another kind of climate change they can get behind with enthusiasm. Which environment will kill us all first? Not one Republican gives a damn.
