The Conservative Colossus by AtheosEmanon The Conservative Colossus by AtheosEmanon
I actually wrote this a few months ago but just decided to post this.

Image is courtesy of wikimedia with its free use as long as the image is not being profited from.

... The statue of Liberty if written by conservatives today...

Text reads:
"Give me your idiotic, your moronic, your anti-intellectuals.. yearning to cause baseless chaos in order to turn our attention away from the issues. Give me your sheeple, your conspiracies and your extremist views... to battle, and destroy the liberal and democratic strong hold. To make equality synonymous with communism, to make justice synonymous with fascism, to make socialism synonymous with totalitarianism. Give me your rich, your wealthy and your land barons wishing to not be held accountable to the same rights and liberties of their fellow man.... but to be granted those special rights granted to them by the lobbyists they hire to grease the pockets of those elected to share your views yet who are elected to suppress your views for their own greed.

Give me your poor, your lower class and your have nots, so I may smear them as American hating and useless. Give me your intellectuals who dare show the flaws in our system, so I can smear them as elitist and out of touch. Give me your first amendment that would dare speak for anything that I am against.

Give me your mind, your body and your blind obedience to cure the rights of man by taking the rights from man"
Emanon Eranatos



This picture is more so speaking of the neo-conservatives, I would gladly vote for an Eisenhower or Goldwater conservative any day of the week.... Though this is not speaking of any particular party - neo-cons can be Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, or even perhaps having no party.

I believe if you look in my gallery you will get an understanding of what it is I believe in as far as policies go.
^in this stamps someone asked me what is the difference between libertarian socialism and democratic socialism, check my comment in the stamp linked above

Pure socialism vs. democratic socialism: atheosemanon.deviantart.com/ar…

..the simplest explanation I could think of when asked the difference between the two.

As always comrades,
Let knowledge be that truth, which portrays humanity, condemns malevolence; that respects the differences in others while abandoning the hatred and misconceptions of the past.

Congratulations, on getting the party beliefs completely, absolutely backwards. *slow, sarcastic clapping* Bravo, bravo.

Party? I mentioned no party in the piece. I did mention an ideological view which is perhaps more prevalent in a certain party - - yet the artist comment itself says I am not referring to any particular party.

so the questions begs to be asked, sir, if I mentioned no party in the writing of the piece, if I purposely said in the "Artist Comments" that this is not towards any particular party  - -  it is rather interesting that I speak to an ideological view - and say this is not about any particular party - -and yet you reply with "... party beliefs completely, absolutely backwards."

Can one get the party beliefs absolutely backwards, while not speaking of a particular party?

Alright, you've gotten your ideological beliefs completely backwards then. There, happy?

To which ideological belief is "completely backwards" to be "completely" of course means that everything within it is wrong.

Yet, this piece, as the artist comment states speaks of Neocons .. not paleocons or your run of the mill conservatives.. can it be "completely backwards" when you  even have certain what I would deem credible, and very great minded conservatives that says the same thing of these neocons?

Happy, eh content I guess so.

Hokay, having a bit of trouble with your grammar, but apparently you think I'm a neoconservative, which I'll inform you politely I am not. I think who you're TRYING to talk about are ultraconservatives, who are, by the way, the very most rock-bottom people that make the rest of us (paleoconservatives and "run of the mill") look bad. Most of us are not about what you describe above. I've met ultraconservatives; I've seen their viewpoint and I don't like it one bit. It is corrupt and racist at its core; but as I previously stated, most of us are not about that.

I believe the grammar, and the previous statement is rather clear.

 

Actually I spoke nothing of what you are – I spoke of the artist comments stating that this particular piece speaks of neocons. I did not, nor will I lay a label on you that you have not yet defined yourself. Nowhere in any premise yet stated, spoke of your personal ideological view.

 

No, what I am trying to speak of are neoconservatives, the kind that seem to have never met a war they did not want America to get involved in, the kind that says we need to intertwine our civil laws with biblical laws etc..

 

“rest of us” well if you consider yourself a run of the mill or paleoconservative, then, as the “Artist Comments” plainly states and I shall quote the text in the Artist comment

This picture is more so speaking of the neo-conservatives, I would gladly vote for an Eisenhower or Goldwater conservative any day of the week.... Though this is not speaking of any particular party - neo-cons can be Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, or even perhaps having no party.”

 

Nowhere did I state that most of you were what the image describes, if I thought it was a mass generalization that encompassed all conservatives I would have saw no need to specify that this piece was referring to neocons.

 

So it would seem, sir, that you read the conservative colossus and thought it was referring to anyone who thinks themselves conservative - -perhaps you did not read the artist comments where I state that it is only or more-so referring to neocons.

 

It would seem, sir, a simple misunderstanding and that is of course fine.

 

Is there more in which, sir, that needs to be discussed with respect to this particular image or..?

Oh, believe you me, I don't like these neoconservatives as much as anyone else; I think that separation of Church and State is important (although if there's no specific religion, then I don't see a real problem, but anyways) and personally I think the Iraq War was rather pointless once we found out they didn't have WMDs.

I did read your description, however the title itself is still a bit misleading. Perhaps you should change it to "The NEOconservative Colossus" to avoid further confusion; it wouldn't suggest such a blanket term encompassing ALL conservatives, because, as we both seem to understand rather clearly, not all conservatives support the same fundamentalist viewpoints. Misunderstanding indeed.

I agree, the original Iraq war was pointless … going after Saddam for something he did during the 1980s… which I believe was simply a cover for their oil reserves. Since if America was truly bothered by Saddam and his actions during the Halabja incident then we would have gone into Iraq in 1988.

 

I do not believe the title is misleading, these people are conservative – perhaps I expect too much of people and do expect people to read the artist comments to gather a better grasp of the image – but I am not responsible for what others may or may not do – or what others may or may not feel with respect or rather regarding the works in which I upload.

 

No thanks, if one cannot be bothered to read the Artist comments, I see no need, nor desire to rename the piece. But thanks for airing your concerns.

 

It would seem, with greatest respect, sir, of the two years of my having uploaded this, you were, only 1 of 2 that thought it was regarding all conservatives..

 

If one cannot read the Artist comments to see it does not mean ALL conservatives, then that is on them, good sir.

 

That is just it, sir, not all conservatives think the same.. there are people that consider themselves paleoconservative that have very similar views to neocons.. thus the piece, while mainly focusing on neoconservatives, it holds to those that have the views expressed within the piece itself.

 

I am unsure, sir, if there is more that needs to be discussed with respect to this particular piece? If there is I of course will address it when I see it as I am online for the  20-30 mins and shall address it immediately - - - if after that time I shall address it tomorrow.

 

If we are done here, I of course wish you a great day… evening.. or night depending on your location and/or perhaps the time you just happen to check this comment.

Atheos,I must congratulate you on yet another piece of "feel good" Liberal Propaganda,this is truly Kool-Aid Poisoning at it's finest and impressionable high schoolers and stoner college kids are drinking it up.

This ploy of appealing to social malcontents is inspired,divide and conquer from within,brilliant!

By the time they realize they'll be thrown under the bus it'll be to late,I hope they enjoy living in the slums with the worthless street trash they've fought for.
