Some Trump Era Wisdom From-- Who Else?-- Hunter S. Thompson


Or venom. Or both. Both for sure. People are saying this is the best they've ready by Thompson, who committed suicide in 2005 (and had his ashes fired out of a cannon), since they read his 1972 classic, Fear And Loathing On The Campaign Trail, which was all about the Democratic primaries. After the ascension of Señor Trumpanzee, Charlottesville and all the climate change denialism during and after Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, we had to share this tonight. It comes from his 2003 book, Kingdom of Fear: Loathsome Secrets of a Star-Crossed Child In the Final Days of the American Century, combining biography and polemic with his unique Gonzo style satire and, for want of better words, abuse and angry prophecy.
We have become a Nazi monster in the eyes of the whole world-- a nation of bullies and bastards who would rather kill than live peacefully. We are not just Whores for power and oil, but killer whores with hate and fear in our hearts. We are human scum, and that is how history will judge us... No redeeming social value. Just whores. Get out of our way, or we’ll kill you.

Well, shit on that dumbness. George W. Bush does not speak for me or my son or my mother or my friends or the people I respect in this world. We didn’t vote for these cheap, greedy little killers who speak for America today-- and we will not vote for them again in 2002. Or 2004. Or ever.

Who does vote for these dishonest shitheads? Who among us can be happy and proud of having all this innocent blood on our hands? Who are these swine? These flag-sucking half-wits who get fleeced and fooled by stupid little rich kids like George Bush?

They are the same ones who wanted to have Muhammad Ali locked up for refusing to kill gooks. They speak for all that is cruel and stupid and vicious in the American character. They are the racists and hate mongers among us-- they are the Ku Klux Klan. I piss down the throats of these Nazis.

And I am too old to worry about whether they like it or not. Fuck them.

"Fuck the South. Fuck ’em. We should have let them go when they wanted to leave. But no, we had to kill half a million people so they’d stay part of our special Union. Fighting for the right to keep slaves-- yeah, those are states we want to keep.

And now what do we get? We’re the fucking Arrogant Northeast Liberal Elite? How about this for arrogant: the South is the Real America? The Authentic America. Really?

’Cause we fucking founded this country, assholes. Those Founding Fathers you keep going on and on about? All that bullshit about what you think they meant by the Second Amendment giving you the right to keep your assault weapons in the glove compartment because you didn’t bother to read the first half of the fucking sentence? Who do you think those wig-wearing, lacy-shirt-sporting revolutionaries were? They were fucking blue-staters, dickhead... Think there might be a reason all the fucking monuments are up here in our backyard?

No, no. Get the fuck out. We’re not letting you visit the Liberty Bell and fucking Plymouth Rock anymore until you get over your Real American selves and start respecting those other nine amendments. Who do you think those fucking stripes on the flag are for? Nine are for fucking blue states... Get it? We started this shit, so don’t get all uppity about how real you are, you Johnny-come-lately, “Oooooh I’ve been a state for almost a hundred years” dickheads. Fuck off...

Arrogant? You wanna talk about us Northeasterners being fucking arrogant?  What's more American than arrogance? Hmmm? Maybe horsies? I don't think so. Arrogance is the fucking cornerstone of what it means to be American. And I wouldn't be so fucking arrogant if I wasn't paying for your fucking bridges, bitch.

All those Federal taxes you love to hate? It all comes from us and goes to you, so shut up and enjoy your fucking Tennessee Valley Authority electricity and your fancy highways that we paid for. And the next time Florida gets hit by a hurricane you can come crying to us if you want to, but you're the ones who built on a fucking swamp. "Let the Spanish keep it, it¹s a shithole," we said, but you had to have your fucking orange juice.

The next dickwad who says, “It’s your money, not the government’s money” is gonna get their ass kicked. Nine of the 10 states that get the most federal fucking dollars and pay the least... can you guess?... They’re red states. And eight of the 10 states that receive the least and pay the most?... Blue states. It’s not your money, assholes, it’s fucking our money...

Let’s talk about values for a fucking minute... Which state do you think has the lowest divorce rate, you marriage-hyping dickwads? Well? Can you guess? It’s fucking Massachusetts, the fucking center of the gay-marriage universe... Think that’s just some aberration? How about this: Nine of the 10 lowest divorce rates are fucking blue states, asshole, and most are in the Northeast, where our values suck so bad. And where are the highest divorce rates?... Ten of the top 10 are fucking red-ass, we’re-so-fucking-moral states.

But two guys making out is going to fucking ruin marriage for you? Yeah? Seems like you’re ruining it pretty well on your own, you little bastards. Oh, but that’s okay because you go to church, right?

I mean, you do, right? ’Cause we fucking get to hear about it every goddamn year at election time . . . Maybe we fucking Northerners don’t talk about religion as much as you because we’re not so busy sinning, hmmm? Ever think of that, you self-righteous assholes? No, you’re too busy erecting giant stone tablets of the Ten Commandments in buildings paid for by the fucking Northeast Liberal Elite. And who has the highest murder rates in the nation? It ain’t us up here in the North, assholes.

Well, this gravy train is fucking over. Take your liberal-bashing, federal-tax-leaching, confederate-flag-waving, holier-than-thou, hypocritical bullshit and shove it up your ass...

Four years of southern living, and I totally agree with Hunter. The Civil War still being fought down here by the mostly clueless. That these people feel their Southern heritage entitles them to be arrogant MF's is just astounding to a progressive.

Any sentient (even barely so) being that spends a little time in the south can attest.

A-fucking-men, Hunter. You left us far too soon. But, believe me, we don't fault you for abandoning us. This is a shithole.

Also instructive to remember that he left us 12 years ago. And all this has been true since well before he decided to flee.

Remember this please lefty voters who cleave to the lesser-evilism meme. It does nothing but allow everything to get worse. Please remember.

I've posted that at my place before, and have done so again. This... contempt, needs to go viral.
