05/13/2003 Entry: "Ben Tripp: Fascsim watch"

"But what we really saw in that moment was a coup díetat. The president isnít supposed to wear a uniform.

*snip*

"When George climbed out of that airplane in his shiny new war suit, he didnít just carry his own cute little self across the deck: son of privilege, chosen of God, and wearing a military uniform, he passed through the doorway from mere wickedness to fascism. Our struggle in the time ahead is to resist the urge to follow him.

"Ben Tripp is a screenwriter and cartoonist."
The Other 'F' Word, by Ben Tripp, AlterNet, May 9, 2003

Okay, I don't disagree with this essay, but I utterly loathe the way it's written and it was a struggle to read it. Are there no other voices, adult, serious, profound yet, voices to say these things? Alternet does the Left a disservice when they publish a guy who thinks he's cute and probably reads these things in front of a mirror, just to get the full effect. I was annoyed and I'm a broad with a broad broad mind (not, however, published in Alternet).

But who is ever going to say these things in a deep enough voice to get everyone's attention before it's too late? I wonder.
