Just when I thought hilarity would cease and we’d not have any more fun close to the level of “Jessica the racist bitch“, here comes Matt Hurley. Matt is proprietor of Weapons of Mass Discussion, an Ohio wingnut with a pretty creative name but with web design that just may blind you. Seriously. I’ve warned you.
Joe already posted here about the insanity of getting all worked up over a campaign logo that borrows elements from The Presidential Seal. (It’s not like he’s running for PRESIDENT or anything). So big deal, right? Where’s the hilarity. Well, that comes in when Matt’s analysis includes Star Trek references. I’ll let Matt tell you why this is so serious.
Stop smiling. Matt is serious here.
I’ll let Matt tell you…damnit stop laughing! Can you not understand this is a matter of national defense and the very fabric of our country is at stake here! Shit! Stop the grab assing and listen to Matthew tell you why this is such a serious matter.
Go ahead Matt:
I am reminded of a Star Trek novel with the title of Dreadnought! by Diane Carey throughout this whole episode. Specifically, the character of Vice Admiral Rittenhouse, who is the main villain of the book, is the only officer in the history of the Starfleet to ever have had the audacity to create a “personal command emblem” which was worn by all the personnel who served with him. Rittenhouse plotted to take over the Federation by force and install himself as a benevolent dictator. In other words, he was a fascist. What tips Kirk and company off about Rittenhouse’s real character and motivations is the emblem and I can’t help but think that we ought to hear what Obama really thinks about this seal before we just let the issue go away.
I’m not kidding people. Cut the damned laughter out and understand the gravity of the situation we are dealing with here.
Are you surprised that Matt used a Star Trek reference? I’m not. Afterall, he lists being a “Starfleet Commander (CEO)” as one among many political and leadership experiences in his bio at his blog:
Political / Leadership Experience
Commander Starfleet (CEO): Starfleet Officers Club (Star Trek fan club and non-profit, charitable organization)
So while Matt may be very qualified to give us the inside scoop on what happened in the book Dreadnought! by Diane Carey, I’ll leave it to our good readers to decide if the guy is qualified to judge whether Obama’s campaign logo is akin to him wanting to establish some kind of “Imperial Presidency”.
If Matt were worried about that, It begs the question where the hell Matt has been during the time George W. Bush actually DEMONSTRATED a desire to set up a fucking “Imperial Presidency”. Not. One. Fucking. Word. I guess imagery is more important to Matt than actual events. You can bet your ass if a right winger had such a logo it would be a “thoughtful expression of patriotism”.
These guys are way too easy. November is going to be fun watching them cry. Dude promises “What the Great Seal of Obama Might Actually Mean for America” in his title, then gives us a Star Trek reference? LOL. Damn…
Sweet mother of mercy and all that is bright and good can you believe we get to do this for another couple months before they all go move to some outpost in West Jordan, Utah?
