It’s fucking bullshit when you see liberals that think drones are a more humanitarian way to wage war because it doesn’t put American lives at risk
This point is also exactly why I do not accept “It doesn’t matter that it’s drones, it’s just a newer technology” as an argument.
Marche is merely the perfect example of how eager American liberals are to accommodate the ideology of the ruling class, “austerity” being all the rage these days. It’s nothing new. Liberals have always been useful servants. And they’ve been following their spiritual masters in the Democratic Party over the free market cliff for decades, even now as they squeeze out a few about inequality. Hey, they’ll always have a pet project.
But liberals aren’t just surrendering to all this debt-mongering bullshit, they’re chipping in like the good little poodles they are. They’re more than happy to cheer on the Millennials. Not for anything like socialism but for more austerity.
If the aim of this show is to get viewers to disrespect everybody in elected office, mission accomplished….
Veep is not meant to be another West Wing, a lodestar to our better selves. Cynicism has increased, and Veep lets us in on the joke—nobody is ever doing the right thing for the right reason.
basically Parker and Stone’s genius is getting liberals to laugh and feel like they’re engaging in something subversive when they’re really just watching/listening to something totally mainstream
- Helrond. in re: the South Park jerk squad’s whole oeuvre and their latest stupid endeavor in particular.
Also, “totally mainstream” could be combined with “unconsciously bigoted” and/or “childishly and unnecessarily cruel” … basically it’s just a big liberal circle-jerk (Helrond went on to point out that “Saint Bob Dylan” had the same m.o.)
