It is said that it’s bad form to exult in anyone’s death. This is obvious nonsense, of course. No one really practices it.
They do practice hypocrisy. If it is politically correct, they will exult. For example, the death of the tall bearded geek who supposedly attacked our freedoms on that fall day almost 20 years ago. People cheered when a SEAL supposedly put a bullet between his eyes.
John McCain, on the other hand, actually did attack our freedoms – and on many days, both before and after that evil day. And they are talking about re-naming buildings after him. He will get a state funeral, be eulogized most unctuously. His wife is being talked about as the inheritor of his Senate seat.
Not even Reinhard Heydrich enjoyed such honors.
I prefer a more honest send-off. I hated the bastard. Hated everything he was and everything he stood for. I do not cheer his death, but mourn it?
Why would I? I don’t mourn the death of cockroaches, either.
He was a War Hero? Well, so was Hitler. So what? Physical bravery – and I will give him that – is not synonymous with moral admirability. Too many people confuse that issue – and people like McCain exploited this weakness many people have. It is the same weakness that makes them reluctant to criticize cops, who are after all are nothing more than armed government workers and not serving or protecting anyone except themselves.
And McCain was not admirable.
He was a federal thug. A lying, grifting, tax-feeding, war-mongering parasite. One of the army of cretins who have somehow acquired immense power to meddle in our affairs and make us pay for it. And who expect us to admire them for it.
Where to start . . .?
How about the Big One.
It was McCain who voted to make sure that the Affordable Care Act – arguably the most freedom-effacing law to come out of Washington since the Patriot Act (which McCain also staunchly supported) was not repealed while there was still a chance of getting rid of it – before it became cemented in place.
His vote was critical to its survival – and the old mummy, already near death, expended perhaps the last ounce of his evil life force to make sure it would outlive him by crawling back to Washington to cast the decisive vote – lecturing those who tried to rid us of this abomination as he did so.
It is also because of McCain that Barack Obama became president – the necessary precursor to passage of the Affordable Care Act. His doomed, egocentic campaign – a third Bush Decidership but with McCain as the front man – was too much for the public to choke down after years of flag-humping war-mongering and so we got the Community Organizer.
Without McCain, it never would have happened. The loathing of the Decider transferred to McCain, who was more of the same – and everyone knew it. Including him. But his vanity and lust for power prevailed, as it always has. In the end, he lost for the same reason that she did, two years ago.
“Conservatives” ought to loathe him as much as liberals do her on account of who is president today. Instead, they lionize him as a latter-day Washington. If they could, they’d pickle his corpse and put it on display. The Huffington Post called him “one of a kind” and a “legend.” Think about it. The appalling Jeff Flake pulled a Jimmy Swaggart, onion-fueled tears streaming down his cheeks, upon hearing of the demise of Republican Party’s version of Ted Kennedy.
Well, at least McCain didn’t rape anyone or drown anyone. I will give him that, too.
But it is because of McCain that I and millions of others are being dunned by the IRS for a “shared responsibility payment” – $700 and change, so far in my case; soon to be $1,400 and change – as punishment for not handing over money to the health insurance mafia, which McCain served so very well.
Further punishments are on deck.
Because Obamacare has assured us of unlimited government. A government that has been empowered to micromanage everything because there is nothing at least potentially outside the scope of “health” – and Obamacare made that a coercive collectivist mandate. It is no exaggeration to state that McCain ruined America – because America, uniquely, was a place where at least your “health” was your own business, instead of the business of a bureaucracy of busybodies, armed and empowered to make you do what they say.
He has turned doctors and nurses into parasites by proxy – and us into prey. We must now fear the medical profession – which will narc us out to men with guns for having guns (another thing McCain did not much like) if those docs decide we are “depressed” or “recalcitrant” for not obeying their orders. That is just for openers. More is coming.
Obamacare plus the Patriot Act have literally erased the relative freedom Americans once enjoyed vs. the ear-tagged cattle of the rest of the world.
This is McCain’s bequest.
And I hate him for it.
And am glad he is gone – because at least he can’t do any more damage now.
If you mourn freedom’s loss – you should be glad, too.
A North Korean-style Dear Leader funeral is now on deck. It would be healthy if millions of Americans turned their backs – or better yet, gathered friends together for a cookout to celebrate. Not the man’s death.
But that his death renders him powerless at last
