The News Pauper: FreedomWorks Matt Kibbe Is A Neocon Shill

By W.B. Dunne

Here is an example of a statement that the NP thinks typifies the right-wing subterfuge of our discourse:

(h/t to Crooks and Liars)

Matt Kibbe: “Well I think if you look at whats happened down there, its a sad story of government incompetence as well as negligence on the part of BP. And I think what you have to look at is when there is a natural disaster like this we do expect our government to do some things and to do them well. And the whole point of limited government is you want the government to be competent at those few things that we need it to do and this is an example where the government was asleep at the switch and theres a series of regulations that led to deep drilling as opposed to more economical and safer options.”

Take a look at that first sentence

Always CYA with I think, in case down the road you need to say, I USED to think to escape enhanced techniques of interrogation!

“Well I think if you look at whats happened down there, its a sad story of government incompetence as well as negligence on the part of BP.”

Yeah, but that sentence is directed at the Obama government with the intent of smearing itstated more perfectly, its a sad story of the negligence of the Bush-Cheney era and incompetence on the part of BP for drilling three miles into the earth without a plan. The NP just loves the condescension in the down there, cleverly implied is that Matt is up here, wherever that might be!

Now, the second sentence the death sentence I call it And I think what you have to look at is when there is a natural disaster like this we do expect our government to do some things and to do them well.”

There Matt goes again, ‘thinking,” this time in order to, like a helpful teacher, direct our awestruck gaze to something that we otherwise would have missed, a NATURAL DISASTER! Before we move on, Matt, tell us all what is NATURAL about Dick Cheney neutering the energy policy for his Big Oil cronies, and drilling a hole in the ocean floor?

Ill give ya that disaster bit though. There is so much bullshit stacked in this sentence one wonders why I would go on dismantling itI wonder too. Im like exploring on the bullshit frontier and I tell ya its lonely, and I’m only halfway through!

“We do expect our government to do some things and to do them well.”

What things, Matt, things like wiretapping and torture, or bombing the shit out of anybody that looks different than us? That isnt we, thats YOU!

Heres what Im gonna do, Im gonna save the rest of this dissection for when I get back from walking my dog because this guy is on my nerves and the next part of the ONE paragraph contains so much treason to logic this may turn out to be my longest post yet.

Back and the fresh air did me good! I didnt even think of this prick the entire half hour. On to the next sentence and, thankfully, the end of this idiots contribution to this diatribe!

“And the whole point of limited government is you want the government to be competent at those few things that we need it to do and this is an example where the government was asleep at the switch and theres a series of regulations that led to deep drilling as opposed to more economical and safer options.”

And the whole point of limited government is you want the government to be competent at those few things that we need it to do”

The first half of this sentence is all the proof you need that Matt hasnt learned anything from the debacle that was the Bush-Cheney regime. This is the weird thing about the entire statementevery word of it is true on its face, but in its expression it utterly corrupts the meaning of them. They lie twisted like the pipe from the Deepwater Horizon.

I am in favor of limited government, and I want government to be competent at those few things that we need them to do. For instance, Matt, we need them to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine so wankers like you cant spout this nonsense without challenge. We should limit the Justice Department to prosecuting those that dismantled our government from within and made the BP oil spill not only possible but inevitable. We need them to mobilize the kind of response we had when 911 thrust upon us, freezing the assets we can and pursuing the culprit culture that brought us here. Imagine if you were an energy lobbyist, wouldnt you be planning your future in a different field? We need government to PROTECT us from these sociopaths!

“and this is an example where the government was asleep at the switch”

No, Matt, this is an example where the government was put to sleep by the former administration. In a little under two years Barack Obama has done more good for this nation than the past one did in eight years, and they can hardly be faulted for dealing with pressing priorities first. In retrospect, it would have made more sense to immediately open the investigation into the energy meetings Dick Cheney hadnow that we no longer have a Gulf of Mexico. Theyre awake now, Matt, and cranky after their (c)rude awakening.

This is how Matt pins the blame on those dirty fuckin hippies:

“and theres a series of regulations that led to deep drilling as opposed to more economical and safer options.”

The series of regulations that Matt is referring to is every piece of legislation that prevented these greedy fuckers from plundering the Arctic Natural Wildlife Refuge and offshore of the populated coastal areas. Matt says, more economical and safer options,” when he means wherever and whenever the Capos of the oil mob see fit.

So we have in front of our eyes a man that in one paragraph can dismiss an industrial environmental catastrophe that has and will continue to claim lives and destroy ecosystems as an act of god, resurrect the zombie of Reagans small government ideology, cry for action from a government crippled by lobbying by special interests and the GOP that dutifully do whatever theyre told, AND leave the treehuggers holding the bag at the end of it all.

The efforts of whoever taught you to read and write were sadly abused by you, Matt. I know you know what youre doing and I know you know how bankrupt your ideology is. You are writing to provide cover for your heroes in the Bushie crowd.

For penance I assign you to clean the oil from the feathers of ten thousand birds.

Lastly, in the words of the former Vice President Dick The Dick Cheney, Go Fuck Yourself.
