Monckton: Future of Civilization Hinges on GOP Senate Takeover

“Lord” Christopher Monckton, the terminally ridiculous buffoon who writes a column for the Worldnetdaily, continues to provide me with hours of amusement as I read his staggeringly stupid missives. In his latest column he argues that if the Republicans don’t take over the Senate in November, liberty “may yet be snuffed out forever” and human civilization itself could collapse. Because that’s totally reasonable.

The coming midterm elections – just weeks away – may yet prove to be the most important in the history of the United States, and of the world.

There is a chance – it cannot yet be put any higher than that – that the GOP may recapture control of the Senate. The future of civilization itself may depend upon its succeeding.

No one should underestimate just how much the United States is respected, admired and even loved worldwide as an example and a beacon of freedom. But if the “Democrats” get their way, the flickering torch carried by the Statue of Liberty may yet be snuffed out forever, together with the nation of which it has long been the symbol…

By little and little, the “Democrats” have become the implacable enemies of everything for which the Founding Fathers so nobly and so successfully strove. Their increasingly close ideological links with international anti-capitalist, anti-democratic, anti-libertarian Marxism and its sinister bedfellow, pietistic environmental extremism, have become an existential threat to the very survival of the United States as an independent nation.

The threat is real – so real that even to vote “Democrat” comes close to being treason. Lest that statement should sound too extreme, let me explain.

Do I have to? Oh, okay. Go ahead.

The ideologies of Marxism and its modern disguise, environmentalism, are explicitly internationalist – or, rather, anti-nationalist. The very idea of nation states whose citizens might wish to be free is utterly alien to the totalitarian mind, which considers that on all matters of politics only one opinion – that of Big Brother – has any value. All opinions contrary to the Party Line are not merely anathema: they are punishable, often by death.

Truer words were never spoken. That’s why you can go to suburban Virginia and see the vast killing fields full of mass graves stuffed with Republicans and conservatives. Why, that’s why Monckton himself was put to death many years ago by the Obama Murder Machine (he posts his columns from a mass grave, aided by the Long Island Medium). Seriously, what can you do but laugh at this kind of absurdity?

    The sooner that we unite as one world, the a sober we can start building the star fleet academy.

    That may very well be true.

    My concern, though, is how Americans underestimate how much our country is feared and despised worldwide as it enables brutal dictatorships and undermines democratic institutions and movements around the world.

  • dingojack

    Aww can’t we build the academy when drunk, It’ll be way more entertaining (and less self-righteous*).

    It’ll be even more entertaining if we design it when drunk.

  • sigurd jorsalfar

    I had no idea the situation was so dire. Now I have to ask whether Republicans are being responsible by waiting until November to take over the senate. Shouldn’t they be doing it now?

  • Chiroptera

    Maybe Monckton should run for Senate. Being a lord may no longer guarantee you a seat in the UK House of Lords, but stupidity seems to grease a path into the US Senate, especially if you run as a Republican.

  • garnetstar

    I don’t think it’s possible to underestimate just how much the United States is respected, admired and loved worldwide. Thanks, Dubya!

  • matty1

    I actually do consider myself something of an internationalist so if you’ll excuse me I’ll just get my soapbox and explain what I mean by the term.

    There are various levels of governance ranging from individual households up to the whole world, the current nation state system treats one of these levels as special with groups on that level accorded special privileges like the right to wage war. They also become the focus for tribalistic thinking, which can be fun in sports but should have no place in serious decision making.

    What I would prefer is that we recognise all these levels have a role and discuss 1. which decisions are best made at what level, and 2. what is the best mechanism for making those decisions.

    We now return you to your scheduled interwebs.

  • colnago80

    Laugh it up but recall that the Rethuglicans in the House called on this asshole to testify as an expert on climate change. That makes him rather unfunny.

    I don’t think the GOP has the capacity to bring humanity back to the stone age simply by taking a majority of seats in the US Senate… yet; but they’re trying.

    It is entirely possible there is no beginning to his intelligence.

    And once again Ed puts scare quotes around “Lord”. Sigh. If it seems like I make this complaint every time Ed blogs about him, you’re right. And I’ll continue to do so.

    Ed, I agree the British aristocracy is kind of silly, but would you write about “Queen” Elizabeth or “Prince” Charles? The latter of whom is as big an idiot as Monckton, just in a different direction? Or how about “Prime Minister” Cameron, or “President” Obama, or “Speaker” Boehner? All are legitimate titles, as is Monckton’s. He’s not a member of the HOUSE of Lords, but he’s an actual Lord in the British Peerage.

    The continued use of the scare quotes puts you the company of right-wingers who do indeed write “President” Obama. Please stop. It reduces the credibility of the whole blog.

  • davem

    Sorry to break it to you, but it isn’t. Your thuggish police, the TSA, Guantanamo Bay, The GOP, gun ‘culture’, and tendency to bomb brown people doesn’t endear the US to many(any?) nations I know of. the rest of your comment is spot on.

  • matty1

    Certain politicians around the world toady up to the US as a valuable trade partner and military ally. That is a very different thing to people generally loving it. This view that non Americans are’patriotic’ towards America is so weird it can only come of living in a bubble of right wing talking points.

  • dhall

    When the UN finds it necessary to release a statement expressing concerns about the behavior of US policemen regarding their interactions with non-whites, and the state of civil rights in the country, I think the whole ‘beacon of liberty’ and ‘shining example’ crap goes out the window.

    And sure, I remember all of those passages in “Das Kapital” and the “Communist Manifesto” where Marx and Engels talk about preserving the natural environment and cutting back on pollution. Their chapter on the perils of dumping carbon dioxide into the atmosphere was especially interesting. One of the main tenets of communism is for everyone to drive hybrids or use mass transit.

    “And once again Ed puts scare quotes around “Lord”. Sigh. If it seems like I make this complaint every time Ed blogs about him, you’re right. And I’ll continue to do so.”

    Ed is quite right to do this. Monckton claims that he has the right to site in the House of Lords even though he has failed three times to get elected to it.

    Most people who are actually “Lords” these days do not use the title if they are not entitled to sit in the House of Lords, Using it makes the holder sound pompose and silly.

  • chippanfire

    Ed is quite wrong to do this. Although a buffoon and not a member of that UK legislative body, Monckton is a bona fide lord. If he wants to use the title then he is entitled to do so.

    “Mr” Ed Brayton just looks petty or ill-informed. It subtracts credibility from the blog, as trebuchet remarked.

    This from a guy who this very morning was standing outside Waverley Station in Edinburgh campaigning for a “No ” vote in the upcoming Scottish Independence referendum.

  • howardhershey

    That Monckton would talk about the extinguishing of the torch of the Statue of Liberty if the GOP. the anti-immigrant party, is especially ironic given the plaque at its base. (most people are only familiar with the last few lines):

    Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

    With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

    Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand

    A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

    Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name

    Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand

    Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command

    The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

    “Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she

    With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,

    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,

    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

    In addition to the Pledge, perhaps students should repeat this poem as a patriotic exercise. I am sure that the Republican Party wouldn’t object…

  • skinnercitycyclist

    Instead of bitching about Ed’s scare quotes, how about Monckton’s?

    First these shitheels began using the style “Democrat” Party instead of the proper term, Democratic Party. Now this mook is putting scare quotes on “Democrat”? This childish teabillie-style bullshit is ridiculous.

    I have always disliked the tendency of some (I am looking at you, I think, democommie ;-)) to use terms like “Rethuglican” or “Republitard,” but given the shamelessness on the other side I think I will start referring to the GOP as the “Shitsucking Weasel Party.” Out loud, I mean.

    And what better way to fight against that one sided heavy handed political ideology, than to declare that someone having a different opinion than you and voting for the other party is treason, a crime which is punishable…often by death.

    Im not going to click through to the original article…but did those 2 paragraphs really come one after another?

    And once again Ed puts scare quotes around “Lord”. Sigh. If it seems like I make this complaint every time Ed blogs about him, you’re right. And I’ll continue to do so.

    I was about to post the same thing. Seriously, Ed, cut it out. It doesn’t make you look good.

    Ed is quite right to do this. Monckton claims that he has the right to site in the House of Lords even though he has failed three times to get elected to it.

    Yes, we know. It just doesn’t have anything to do with whether or not that is legitimately his title.

    Most people who are actually “Lords” these days do not use the title if they are not entitled to sit in the House of Lords, Using it makes the holder sound pompose and silly.

    Citation needed.

    Agreed 100%. And since it’s ridiculous childish bullshit, let’s stop doing it.

    trebuchet, it’s long past the time for people to start writing “Queen” Elizabeth and “Prince” Charles.

    I prefer Mrs Windsor, Mr Charles “Woo-woo” Windsor, and Mr Monckton. Using feudal aristocraticdictatorship titles is absurd.

    And Trebuchet, Prime Minister, President, and so on, are generally earned titles. Quite different from the insulting rubbish titles Ed is so right to call out.

    “I have always disliked the tendency of some (I am looking at you, I think, democommie ;-)) to use terms like “Rethuglican” or “Republitard,” ”

    I rarely refer to refuckedlicans as “rethuglicans” of “republitard”. I do, however. think that, “Shitsucking Weasel Party.” is a GREAT idea.

    So why not call the Party o’ God – ‘the ratfuckers‘?

    …the United States is respected, admired and even loved worldwide as an example and a beacon of freedom…

    Yeah, umm… no, Christopher. Really. Like Davern says (#14).

    Unless you mean freedom for a set of white Anglo Saxon male heterosexual protestant gun-hugging types. Otherwise, not so much.

    Ask around, and I think you’ll find a lot of people pretty disgusted by the way the US body politic treats so many of its own citizens, as well as the rest of the world. And you’ll probably find that a lot of people are shocked that so many Americans are accepting of such regressive crap talk from the likes of you. That does not engender warm and fuzzy feelings, or raise the US up as a “beacon of freedom”.

    Just to pile on the No one should underestimate just how much the United States is respected, admired and even loved worldwide as an example and a beacon of freedom. statement, what I’ve learned over the last few years, when travelling abroad, is to claim to be a Canadian, at least to the people in the street.
