ahh, compassion...

from C&L: bitch

there are those on the right who use these instances, as well as those such as the post below "WTF????," in order to give full voice to the foulest, dankest, darkest sewage pit recessess of their ugly and stinking hearts. and worse, there is a veil that has descended over the eyes of the average American that somehow prohibits their speaking out to shout down these psychopathic morons, no one wants to be branded unpatriotic, no one wants to be branded a terrorist, no one dares question the 'christian' who spews such black horror, no matter the sick and glaring hypocracy of such madness. where is the real compassion? where is the concern for the AMERICAN POOR? where is the drive to feed the AMERICAN HUNGRY? how can we stomach Barbara Bush's "...beautiful mind" without a terrible revolution rushing the gilded metal of their gated world?

the CLASSISM of the WHITE REPUBLICAN MINORITY is sickening. the POWER for change lies in the hands of the working class, the middle class, the poor, the hungry, we all have the power in OUR HANDS to DEMAND these fuckers heads on PIKES (metaphorically speaking, of course). it will take OUTRAGE heaped on their doorsteps, it will take ATTENTION TO EVENTS, it will take INFORMATION seized from the Memory Hole and broadcast far and wide, over and over, a counterbalance to the propaganda, real truth to refute the Ministry of Truth, we must insist that this is OUR world, a world of honesty, community, poetry and truth. a world that won't abide perversity and murder, atrocity and obstruction, crimes and violence and evil. a world of humanity and not corporations, a world of art and not heartless commerce, a world where empathy isn't punished.

a world where no one's "beautiful mind" needs to be soiled by the misery we humans are capable of generating.

compassion does not exist.

compassion, like freedom, is a construct of the mind; a concept. and one that is not likely to be embraced by the American public anytime soon (nevermind the American political system).

compassion is for sissies. compassion is for unpatriotic terrorists.

compassion is unamerican.

compassion is dead.

com passion:

suffering with.

you're right my man. it is weak to suffer with your fellow human being. it is an act of terrorist revolution to care.

I say, fuck those patriots. let's belch our own foulness of caring and empathy and understanding upon their beautiful shoes.

Compassion is unpatriotic -- true, but "patriotism" paternalism, fatherland . . . must die and be buried in the ash bin of history and will bury itself and us with it if we cannot kill it first.

Matriotism; loyalty to mother earth and the family of life is what must replace it and compassion is its host.

All of us or None!
