Rooting For An Economic Collapse In America At The Daily Kos

After spending half her diary comparing America to Nazi Germany, Daily Kos diarist Granny Doc[1] openly roots for an “economic meltdown” in America,

The parallels are undeniable, and I see only one solution if America, The Grand Experiment, is to survive.

I want to stand by and watch it all blow up.

I want the dollar to plunge to worthless paper.

I want the stock market to implode.

I want the economy to plunge into chaos.

I want the Chinese to call in all the debt they hold.

I want an economic meltdown of such staggering proportion that even that idiot on Bill Moyer’s Journal who does not know the difference between a State Constitution and the United States Constitution, is forced to look around in mild surprise and wonder what the hell happened.

Only total economic destruction will get the attention of the fools.

I want every single idiot who doesn’t think politics is any of their concern to be gob smacked by the terror of losing it all. I want a wake up call of such stunning proportion that a generation will slip from the stage before any American citizen votes on the basis of looks, or, charm, or cant – before any claim of “Free Trade” is accepted as uninteresting. Before any citizen thinks it’s cute, or hep, or stylish, to be distainful of politics.

I want every politician who places getting elected ahead of protecting the Constitution to find their corporate masters have lost interest in their little fiefdom as economic collapse makes their petty posturing even more pathetic.

I want a culture war against greed to emerge from the rubble, and the blyth acceptance of what is, in favor of the hard work of what could be to become so passe that our grandchildren will forever wonder what we were thinking.

I want every bamboozled, bubble headed, super-star chasing, reality show afficianado thrown off the island, and forced to swim in the shark infested waters of what their indifference has wrought.

And I want it now, before this inept, self-serving Congress allows the Facists one more opportunity to fully convert this from the United States of America, into the 4th Reich.

Now, that’s patriotism, isn’t it? Comparing America to Nazi Germany and then rooting for “total economic destruction” in our country. Granny Doc better be careful. If she keeps writing posts like this, even someone as influential as Kos won’t be able to get her a job any better than Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy in the Treasury Department of a future Clinton Administration.
