This is it…Life imitates Art at the Crossroads of our Generation and the Doorstep of 2012!
King Edward Longshanks is played by Obama
Lochlan & Cheltham are played by Reid & Pelosi
Mornay & the Scottish Nobles are played by Boehner & the Republican Establishment.
Together, they form what we in the Tea Party refer to as The Ruling Class!
A “commoner” by the name of William Wallace (A Tea Party favorite!) has challenged the age-old status quo grip of the Ruling Class. As is always the case, their grip inevitably blocks the airway of the very people they rule. Longshanks has maintained the status quo by buying off the Nobles (Sound familiar?) to keep their respective clans in line. But the lesson all tyrants fail to heed is that freedom is oxygen to the very core of a man’s heart!
So Wallace has riled up his fellow commoners to the point where the Nobles have no choice but to make a show of battle. In one of my favorite scenes from the movie, William has just ridden out to interrupt the Nobles who were in the middle of seeking a COMPROMISE/Truce from the Commanders of Longshank’s Army, Lochlan and Cheltham (Again…Sound familiar?):
William: I said I have an offer for you.
Lochlan: You disrespect a banner of truce?
William: From his king? Absolutely. Here are Scotland’s terms. Lower your flags, and march straight back to England, stopping at every home you pass by to beg forgiveness for 100 years of theft, rape, and murder. Do that and your men shall live. Do it not, and every one of you will die today.
Cheltham: [laughing] You are outmatched. You have no heavy cavalry. In two centuries no army has won without–.
William: I’m not finished. Before we let you leave, your commander must cross that field, present himself before this army, put his head between his legs, and kiss his own arse.
[Cheltham rides off]
Mornay: I’d say that was rather less cordial than he was used to.
“100 years of theft, rape and murder?”…Your Liberal neighbor is off his couch screaming pissed we’ve interrupted The Daily Show! He’s right…it’s only been 40 years!
But theft, rape and murder are mild offenses in comparison with the horrors of modern-day tyranny. The only difference is that the Scottish Commoner and American Colonialist had the sense to know they were oppressed…and a benevolent-by-comparison regional monarchy has evolved to become the far more diabolical global oligarchy!
Theft, rape and murder? Child’s play! To understand what they’ve already done to the American Spirit, visualize R.J. McMurphy before and after the lobotomy! He was the absolute dead-ringer embodiment of what we used to be before they removed that part of our brain…and watch closely America, as the vacant-eyed McMurphy vegetable shuffles slowly back to his holding pen after the procedure. You are looking in the mirror! (Note- Those of you born after 1980 will not understand this in the very fiber of your being, as we do.) Maybe a Dickens-like American Carol would rouse us from our slumber! You know…we receive the three visitations tonight in our sleep from the ghosts of American Past, Present and Future…hmmm (Making a note!).
Well the spirit of William Wallace is calling us to rise up, open our eyes and gaze out into the field of our dreams and our destiny. Behold the Ruling Class Nobles in the center of the field negotiating the terms of our surrender in the final seconds of 2011. They will use words like compromise, reasonable, fair and moderate as they carve up our interests and tighten our chains. And they will use words like extreme to paint and marginalize those who stand between them and power!
In the movie Braveheart, the Nobles put self-interest before country and betrayed William Wallace…just as they’re doing now. Who among us has endured the final straw? Who among us possesses the courage and the passion to carry our banner out onto that field and deliver our terms? Because I have them right here…
Mr. Illegitimate President and Corrupt Members of Congress, resign your posts immediately! Return the property and dignity you have stolen from the purse and heart of the American People, stopping to bow down and beg forgiveness from every legal tax-paying, gun-toting and bible-hugging American on the way! Do this and we will put you behind bars where you belong. Do it not…
Oh yes, I’m not finished. Before we let you leave, you will fire Eric Holder, order the public executions of George Soros, Jon Corzine, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid for the Crime of High Treason! You will then abolish the NEA & Planned Parenthood, establish Congressional Term Limits and pass Cut, Cap and Balance. And then, Mr. Illegitimate President…you will walk across that field and present yourself to the country you’ve betrayed, bend over, put your head between your legs and kiss your own arse! And I’d say THAT is rather way more cordial than you deserve!
“Would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance to come back here, and tell our enemies, that they may take our lives. But they’ll never take our freedom!” – William Wallace
NOW THAT IS A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! 🙂
